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 »

If I had to choose…I’d take…um…

I do think that the ultimate is to kiss with the truth. But there have been times, I know, when my intention to do so has felt more like a slap.

I have certainly been the one slapped with the truth at times! But I do notice that when it’s really a slap, the sting sometimes clouds my ability to feel through to the truth. Whenever someone 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 »

Want to know my Equation for Happiness?

We learned in school that 2+2=4
I imagine there are quantum physicists that can prove that this is not, in fact, true. But it certainly works for everyday functioning.

Last night, Z and I were talking about New Year’s Resolutions. And it occurred to me that this wouldn’t make any sense for me any more.

Is this because my life is absolutely perfect and I no 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.

The 27 inches that will change my life. more »

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 »

Choose Your People

As I look back at my life, I can see a trajectory of sorts. It’s as if I can see a linear graph – my evolution of consciousness represented by looking at the people I am drawn to spend the most time with.

What I know about this is that vibrations and energy are contagious. I know this from performing, for one thing. If we watch someone sing a song or say lines to a movie or play, and they aren’t IN the emotions, WE don’t feel it!

I used to sing sad songs for a living. Then I realized I had to choose between performing them well by feeling them deeply, or singing without my heart in it.

I chose to more »
