Accepting What Is and The Enormous Power of Yes

Yes, my hubby and I are in a place of change and challenge. I am allowing my feelings to flow their course and reminding myself to find that place of Being and to connect to it regularly. This can also be a time of strengthening and non-reactivity. This is a great teaching by Eckart Tolle. I intend to take it one moment at a time and to see how all unfolds. I am in the unknown, and there is a part of me that feels that ok, we'll stay connected to What Is and see where we are led next. There is… Continue

Life as Your Perfect Teacher

I do not believe that everything in life is meant to be a teacher. We can find ourselves getting hypervigilant with spirituality if we let ourselves. And sometimes life just flows and things happen. For example, sometimes when you drop a mug, you are just dropping a mug! One of my teachers named don Miguel Ruiz said to me once, an accident is just an accident. And he was right too. He is also a master of letting things go. And acceptance for that matter. He's been through his own recovery… Continue

Softening Judgements

Softening Judgment: Moving Beyond Appearances



It is our natural inclination to judge people, since it happens without our even thinking about it. We take one look and summarize a whole person. This habit comes from the mind’s need to categorize the world in order to be able to function without becoming overwhelmed. When we judge, we are looking for pertinent information, trying to determine whether the person approaching is a threat, an… Continue

Breaking family patterns - a new beginning

I am a legacy breaker. I have consciously sought to heal and free myself of the family beliefs, patterns and system I grew up in. The Toltec's call this "breaking our domestication." And I have been aware of doing this for most of my life.



It's not that I don't love my family now. Or that I see them as "less than" who and what they are. But I have sought to be Free, consciously, and no one else in my family has done this. I have often thought of the fact that even symbolically, I am… Continue

Completions and 09/09/09





Well, we passed the 9/9/9 and many of us have truly experienced completions. My hubby and I just closed down our old home in SantaFe, New Mexico. We had a friend renting it for 3 years and she moved out at the end of August. We are now ready to sell it, and let go of our old home of 11 wonerful years. It really was quite the completion on a powerful and healing chapter of our lives.

Moving in Real Time: Avoid the Fast Forward Button

We all go through times when we wish we could press a fast-forward button and propel ourselves into the future and out of our current circumstances. Whether the situation we are facing is minor, or major such as the loss of a loved one, it is human nature to want to move away from pain and find comfort as soon as possible. Yet we all know deep down that we need to work through these experiences in a conscious fashion rather than bury our heads in the… Continue

Today's Practice: Summon Your Aliveness

Summon Your Aliveness: Being Fully Present



When we are fully present, we offer our whole selves to whatever it is that we are doing. Our attention, our integrity, and our energy are all focused in the moment and on the task at hand. This is a powerful experience, and when we are in this state, we feel completely alive and invigorated. This kind of aliveness comes easily when we are absorbed in work or play that we love, but it is… Continue
