Awakening into power and purpose for the greater good. A descending hub is an area that is energetically moving in the direction of negative polarity, depletion and contraction, as opposed to ascending, which is growing or thriving in energetic expansion. Detroit is one of those descending areas. However, that doesn’t mean its energies can’t be changed. This was the thought of a woman named Mama Shu who awakened through the […] Read more »

Art as a Creative Expression of Light

painting of petals

Art is the Divine vibrating into expression. We recognize this when a photograph, sculpture, dance or poem stirs our emotions into profound inner spaces. I am grateful to have had two such outstanding moments in my life, and another when it became crystal clear that this deeply mattered to my soul. I’ve given permission to my creative self in various ways over the years, though I have very little formal […] Read more »

I lovingly command your kindness and ease and grace at this timing to bring me all that aligns me to my highest expression as one with love and truth.

How to Transcend the Search for Acceptance

waiting

– accepting the difference between ‘should’ve’, ‘could’ve’ and ‘can’t’ As a psychotherapist, I hear it again and again – the cry of the wounded, inner child: “if only…”, “I wish they had…”, “they should have…”, and “one day they will…” This wishful thinking about Mom and Dad is often at the root of much of life’s dissatisfactions – wishing things to be different than they are. Even if you have […] Read more »

Are You Arguing with Life?

angry boy

Life happens – a constant flow of joyful and painful change, and everything in between. As certain as change is human resistance, because when the negative ego dislikes anything that is unfolding in life, whether its minor or profound, it will seek a means to avoid it. Unfortunately, wanting things to be different than they are through ego-control only amplifies trying circumstances and creates suffering. Ego can make a mountain […] Read more »

Dying to Know

Hang onto the moment

As we approach December 21, 2012, a celebratory marker in the journey of our ascension timeline here on Earth (2012 and beyond), I sit in reflection of the imagined life that I let go, and the unexpected that took its place. I have been allowing this consciously to the best of my ability for many years. Still, each new experience, in fulfillment of my highest soul purpose of service to […] Read more »

Responding to Your Own Choices for Ascension

Instead, difficult days can be the manna for the ascension of our soul. Our response determines how gracefully we navigate the passageway. My client Suzy is a skilled practitioner who heals the subtleties of the body with her intuition and the skill of […] Read more »

The Divine Design of Dying

fading face

The summer winds down. The new school years begins, and work resumes in earnest. The leaves begin to turn, and nature reminds us that “to everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose, under heaven….a time to be born, a time to die.” Or perhaps the lyrics from this 50’s song by Pete Seeger could be “….a time to die, a time to be reborn…”.  That, of course, would depend […] Read more »
