Lessons from Covid-19: Cycles of Life

Cycles of the four Seasons

While people around the globe are sheltered-in-place during this pandemic, groups are gathering together virtually on Zoom so that they can still have human connection. People have access to their families, they are having virtual parties, and various interest and support groups are meeting, as well. It's a great way to unite together in this time of uncertainty.

Releasing Fear and Stepping into Authenticity

I know what is going on feels scary, and my heart aches for those hardest hit by world events right now. However, I always try to see my life's circumstances from a Spiritual perspective. Looking within to see the lesson that we all here to learn is important in this time of now.

Shifting Consciousness in the Time of Coronavirus

The world is going through a seemingly chaotic explosion. The news is laden with information regarding the coronavirus. Grocery aisles have been emptied of supplies. Schools are shutting down. And Disneyland has closed for the remainder of the month. Even Mickey Mouse needs a break.

The World Health Organization and The Center of Disease Control and Prevention have extensive information on how to protect you and your family, including washing your hands constantly with warm water, but it's also important to look at what's going on from a deeper level.

The Year of Getting Better

Despair. Shame. Illness. Stress. We have all been known to walk down the halls of misery from time to time. Sometimes we are seemingly more enmeshed in anguish than not. If we look at our past experiences, however, one might take note that they all lead to better things—a new way of thinking or perhaps a new way of being. And that is a good thing.

I Share with You Today This Message...

It's easy to be caught up in the laundry list of "stuff" running around in our minds. In order to connect with our true joyful state, stop for a moment. Take a breath. Narrow your vision to one small thing of beauty--a gemstone, a flower, a child, the leaf on a tree, a piece of music--it could be anything at all. Notice when you really focus your attention--even for only a minute--how you shift. Even while in the depths of sorrow, there is so much to appreciate. The more we tap into the beauty that surrounds us, the more we can remember the inner beauty within us.

A Heart Opening Through Song

There is a meme floating out there in social media with a quote by Gabriel Roth that immediately spoke to me once I saw it. In essence, it talks about how if a person were to go to a Shaman or Medicine Person about an ailment of some sort, he or she would ask the following four questions:

When did you stop dancing?
When did you stop singing?
When did you stop being enchanted by stories?
When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence?

Without these things, we experience the loss of Soul, Roth states, but when we embrace these fundamental sides of ourselves, a healing occurs.

And the Bells Chimed On

There is little doubt that the last few weeks have been a time of upheaval if you live in California. One thing after the other has contributed to a bit of discomfort. Between the cycles of earthquakes, intense wind storms, fires, smoke filling up our air, power outages, lack of internet and cell service, household water being turned off, shortages of supplies, as well as gas stations, bridges and stores being shut down for days at a time, it’s a wonder we are still up and running. I feel like Dorothy on her way to Oz. Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!

And people are talking. It feels like a pre-cursor to a dystopic life. How much more can we take? Admittedly, it has been fascinating to watch. We have become a bit spoiled with our creature comforts, but why is the Universe showing us so much turmoil all at once?

Spiritual Trash Picking

I was six years old when I became consciously aware of how much I detested garbage strewn all over the street. I have my former babysitter to thank for this understanding. She had inadvertently became my teacher.

Changing What Doesn't Work

"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." 
Albert Einstein

Change is the only constant in the Universe. We are meant to evolve and grow. We were never meant to stick with the status quo. Yet, many of us have a hard time with change. We eat the same foods. We do the same activities. We put on our clothes exactly the same way every morning. Let's face it, we like doing things the way we have always done them. Unfortunately, that sometimes means we repeat the same patterns that are not good for us. We think if we do it this time, it will surely workbut it never does. Yet, we carry on in the same manner anyway. 

It takes courage to shake things up and move forward. The good thing is that it's never too late to do so.

Creativity is the Spark of Life

"No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world."
Robin Williams' character John Keating in Dead Poet's Society

Like the flame of a candle that yearns to be resplendent in all its glory, creativity is necessary to inspire passion for this human experience we are sharing.

I have had a bit of a creative spark as of late. In the last few weeks, I have constructed eight vision boards. I have made vision boards in the past, but this time, I am creating them a little differently. Instead of cutting out images from a magazine, I am finding the

Part of the reason I walk every day is because I am able to connect with not only my physical body and my physical surroundings, I am also able to connect with the Universe. I consider my daily walks a meditation—an active one, to be sure—and quite often it is

Loving Our Enemies

Whether one is religious or not, we have all heard the words from the Bible, "Love your enemy." The New Testament has been preaching this sentiment for a couple of millennia now. That's a very long time. Yet, we haven't really seemed to learn the lesson. I know

Ending 2016 on a High Note

It has been a rough year for many of us, myself included (hence the reason I haven't been here much). Even though there has been a lot of muck that needed to be traversed down the road of 2016, a sprinkling of Light has spread its seeds throughout

The Body Knows

I haven’t been here in a while. My life has segued into having a full-time job, which is taking up a lot of my attention at the moment. That along with the overtime and the commute where every street and highway packs in the cars like sardines, I end up only

Manifestation Mania

I had been without a car for several years. At first it didn't matter, because I was living in Paris. The Metro can get you just about anywhere quite easily. So, having a vehicle in The City of Light was a non-issue. However, my days is Arizona without my own wheels

The Breakdown of the Old Paradigm

After being off work for two weeks, my doctor gave me the thumbs up to return to duty. I had been wearing a boot for a few days so I hoped everything would be okay. Much to my chagrin, it was not. I may be a spirituality teacher, but I have to pay the bills. As of

I sprained my ankle pretty severely on Saturday. I am in a splint up to my knee. I have to wear crutches. I need to keep my leg elevated above my heart. I can’t work for a week. The only exercise I am getting is a trip to the bathroom or a trip to the TV room. I can’t

Today I Turned 50

Today, I turned 50. I didn't melt down. I didn't cry. I am just here being me. Another year older, and hopefully another year wiser. That being said, I think of all that I have learned over the years. For instance, we live in a culture that despises middle age. We have

The Magic of the Universe

Have you ever felt like things are about to shift? Like you are on a precipice, about to jump into a new reality? I have had this feeling for a couple of days. It's so strong. And the thing is, I can't imagine what this means. Nevertheless, I am guided to trust that it is
