Seeing the finish line…

Yesterday, I posted on Facebook about my challenges due to “Senioritis” with school. It has been especially difficult to get myself to get to the work, especially writing papers. The support I received shifted things for me! At the end of the day, I felt lighter about it all, more capable. I was gonna make it to that finish line after all!

This morning, Z and I scheduled in our more »

7 things my iPhone taught me today…

This morning my iPhone was totally fine one minute. Then? I went to text someone about an upcoming call, and…Nothing. Wouldn’t turn on at all!

FINALLY got it to come alive, but then it was telling me it needed to be restored. In the meantime, I had gone to iCloud to get the phone number of the person I had been wanting to text….and…What? NOTHING there!? more »

One little phrase that says it all…

Last weekend, I attended a wonderful retreat for school. In a ceremony at the end, nine of us officially became seniors.

It was a short ritual. But it reminded me of the power of ceremony. After that little event, it hit me: This is going to be finished for me – this walk of school – all the time, the money, papers, reading, more »

Who is the real love of my life?

I admit it. I am in love.

This love has blessed my life in more ways than I can say, and more ways than I even know! This love has allowed me to be more at peace in each moment, knowing that I am completely safe in the world. That was something I did NOT used to know! more »

What does a tree have to do with my daily practice?

I had a realization this morning. Maybe you’ve heard this, or known this deeply yourself. But it was present for me at a whole new level today.

It’s possible for me to go through life, always growing and becoming more of who I want to be in the world, without ever rejecting myself. It is within the world of possibility that I could live so fully in the more »

How did technology hurt me? And what’s that got to do with breakfast?

I recently read a book that completely changed my life! It’s called ‘Shrink Yourself,’ by Roger Gould, M.D. It’s subtitle? “Break free from emotional eating forever!” You get the idea.

As an addict in recovery, I am aware of my tendency to avoid emotions. And I have dealt with many food more »

Celebrating the Light that is You

The Light of Christmas is You

Merry Christmas to you, whether this holiday is the particular one you celebrate this time of year or not. The Light that is YOU is worth celebrating, for sure! And the Light that we celebrate as Christmas, in so many traditions and religions, more »

What’s the 27 inches that will change my life?

I resisted. I struggled. I tried EVERYTHING to avoid it.

I had it all planned out. I was going to do this in a year, or maybe two.

But finally, the time came. I had to do it. I had to break down and get a new computer for my studio.

I was feeling sorry for myself. I was cranky about this. I had to spend money that was earmarked for recording my next CD! I was NOT happy about this.

But then, I saw it. Last night. I’ll be picking it up tonight from The Mac Advantage.

Sweet Release

Today I am reminded – Releasing resistance is a key to happiness in EVERY LITTLE THING! This morning I watched myself struggle with this small issue. The pair of pants I’d sewn for X-mas Eve Services at Center for Spiritual Living, Santa Rosa don’t work! Oh dear God….It felt like such a HUGE thing to me last night, when I discovered this!

Okay sure, I have to make more »

Safe in the World

This past year, I’ve become aware that I tended to avoid all things involving communication. I understand that this is motivated by the part of me that is afraid of people. THIS comes from an old story that says I am not safe in the world – that people will hurt me.

But I can see that for many years now, I have been safe in the world!

I am very grateful for this new version more »
