DOWNLOAD************ The knowing that came to me today while doing dishes (duh! when else does spiritual insight appear?!?), is something i think I already knew, but keep forgetting. It’s one of those ocean in a drop of water knowings, so it’s hard to explain and fully encapsulate….but I shall try. It is this: We have come to a time in evolution, where to move forward, … Continue reading Only Love in Action Can Transform Hate
RASPBERRY CHIA OAT BARS I’ve been craving sweets lately. I miss being able to go to a coffee shop a few times a week and order a fancy coffee drink and nibble a decadent bakery treat. But my days of being able to plunk down $10 for an afternoon treat are long gone, and even if I could still afford it, as my health requires … Continue reading Raspberry Chia Oat Bars- recipe
This post is directed toward my fellow white people. It’a about white privilege, something too few of us are aware of, because being able to be blissfully unaware is one of the ways racism is able to be perpetuated. What follows is but 1 small example of what white privilege looks like in everyday life: I’m travelling across the country in a vehicle with … Continue reading On White Privilege; a Case Example
Today’s Transmission: I’ve been undergoing a deep and long crisis/initiation/transformation. Only very recently have I begun to realize that my seeming failings, and the Universe’s seeming lack of support are anything but. Every painful event unfolding in my life has a deeper, most beneficial purpose. Themes center around things “not working out”; one of which is my dearth of success in the professional world, … Continue reading How to Be With/Relate to Someone Undergoing Crisis/Transformation/Shamanic Initiation/Cultural Dismantling and a Peek at What Might Be Going On Beneath the Surface
I had some fear come up today while at my storage unit, and also a kind of stealth fear has been an undercurrent for me these last few months— I’m scared of the changes I might really need to make, scared to take that next big leap into the life i want to live, because it means letting go of all sense of security and … Continue reading Everything You Want Is On the Other Side of Fear
Do you ever mis-read a word, but the mistaken word still winds up offering something of value? I do that all the time, and often I simply dismiss the mistake and move on. This morning I misread the phrase, “redirected her energies” as “rededicated her energies”. There’s something to that. Often times, after a long period of working towards a goal, or striving or what … Continue reading Re, Re, Re, Re-spect the Wisdom All Around You
One of my hobbies is to make inspirational “posters” or whatever they’re called from photos I’ve taken, and pair them with little nuggets of wisdom from myself and others (despite my rudimentary skill in graphic and web design). I’m feeling a sense of abundance today and I’d like to share the wealth. Feel free to download. If reposting, please use proper attribution.

I woke up this morning with a fresh perspective to my recent baffling challenges– remembering a vision from a Hebrew Priestess Journey where I was a piece of copper being hammered, this morning i realize that every knock or bang or being hammered by Life, is really just forging my Instrument and the instrument that is being created is developing a beautiful, clear, strong sound; … Continue reading Sunday Morning Darshan
Just so you know– it’s ok to not feel grateful on Thanksgiving. It’s ok to read everyone’s cheery statements and long lists of all the good in their lives and feel crabby. It’s ok if you’re not feeling it and can’t genuinely wish others good cheer. It’s ok to “have it all” and still feel emptiness lurking inside you. Just notice how you *are* feeling. … Continue reading It’s Okay Not to Feel Grateful on Thanksgiving.
