Russian Rouletting Your Life?

I used to think everyone else knew better than I did. Even though the Universe always spoke to me, I didn't listen. I mean, why would God speak to an asthmatic girl growing up in a poor, abusive home? It made no sense. Surely there were more appropriate people in the world that could share His message. And so I went from healer to healer seeking answers: Sound Healing, Reiki, Theta Healing(r), Chakra Healing, Prayer

I Surrender

Resolutions are something I decided I didn’t need in my life. They always felt like a should or a have to. And really, I don’t want to live from a place of should or have to. Not anymore. Instead, last December I went on an inward journey. I took a month away from my social media addiction to just…be. Be present with my family. Be present with myself. I was using social media as a crutch.

2016 broke me

2016 broke me. All of the pain, the lifetime of trauma/drama, the excuses I had shoved down into the recesses of my being were laid bare. I’d love to say I sailed through it, but I didn’t. I kicked and I screamed and I sobbed my way from beginning to...right now. There’s never an end to involution. Not really. But through that firestorm of pain came realizations of who I am. Of the lies I

What if your darkness IS your light?

"My darkness is my light."   Almost a year ago, I uttered those words in a room filled with women. Many of whom, days earlier, I had become acquainted with for the first time. I had met a part of myself, you see, at this event. I had squirreled her away for all of my life, probably for several previous lifetimes, now that I reflect upon it. I was afraid of her, this part of me. Afraid

Desire

When I talk about desire, I don’t mean sexual desire, although there is a place for that. The desire I speak about is “true desire”. And by true, I am talking about the desires of our heart gifted us by God/Universe, Source, All There Is, or whatever you call a higher power. Desire is blamed for all manner of transgressions in society, most notably, suffering. In the realm of spirituality, we are told that desire is

Say something real

Cat Grant and her estranged son were sitting across each other with Supergirl in between. As they spoke at each other, Supergirl said to them, "say something real, even if it terrifies you."  I immediately wrote that down because it sums up what I'm about. Being real. Being you.   Why did we stray so far away from that? You see it everywhere. In the advertising that sells us toothpaste to toilet paper. In the movies that

Live like no one is watching

My husband sat back in his chair, arms to the side, hands on his lap and asked, "aren't you going to take a picture?"   I had trained him, you see. I was always taking pictures of food when we went out to dinner and posting on Facebook. Everyone would oooh and ahhhhh and say how lucky I was to go out to dinner so often and travel as much as I did. I love

our belief in a devil keeps us helpless

I was having a conversation recently with someone who is very religious. Let me preface this by saying that I am not religious. I am, for lack of a better word, spiritual.I don't believe that we need to go to church to connect with God. I don't believe I need a minister or a pastor or a clergyman to tell me right from wrong or what God wants me to know.   God has no

Proof of Life

I have often wondered what's the point. I mean, what exactly is the purpose of life?   Is it to go to school so we can memorize information to regurgitate at will to prove we've learned something?   Is it to sacrifice a disproportionate number of daily hours to a job that feels meaningless?   Or is it to find our "soul mate", marry, produce 2.5 children and live the American dream behind a white

not everyone will like you…

I thought I had made a new friend. She was nice although very troubled. I'm all about helping so when she reached out to me, I asked God/Universe for advice and, in my blunt, straightforward way shared what I had heard with her. It was not well received. I kinda knew what was behind her lashing out because it came out in the guidance I had gotten during my Divine conversation. The second time it happened, however, I took
