Even the Buddha Got Stuck

We all have our moments of stuck-ness. Or weeks. Or months. We come in and out of it....of being in the flow and so connected in so many ways, creating magic....and then other times we feel like we can't manage to even pull ourselves out of bed, or decide what to eat for breakfast. When we find ourselves "stuck"...it's so easy to beat ourselves up about it wondering what we did wrong. What we did or didn't do, should have done [...]

Six Degrees of Cuban Bacon

Okay, so I realize this post is completely self-serving, and I’m okay with that. Sometimes, shit happens. And it makes me think and ponder and wonder… and these thoughts yell and scream at me until they are allowed out into the world. Sometimes through spoken word, sometimes through a blog post. It helps me process. So there’s your warning. This may or may not resonate with you. It doesn’t matter. It just needs out. But be careful if you choose [...]

The Magic Formula

The universe is ALWAYS speaking to us, sometimes in subtle ways, other times, more like a bonk on the head. That is a given, there is nothing we have to "do" to have it speak to us. We do, however, have to take the time to LISTEN. Which often means being more aware, creating space for that awareness by being still, pausing, listening, and being open to what is being said. The week before last for me was a doozy. I [...]

Loss is Loss

Yesterday, we had a bit of a trying day with my family. Nothing major, just everyone being in a funk at the same time. It seems the more people I talk to lately, it's kind of like a cosmic epidemic of funkiness at the moment. Seems like realities are shifting, systems are getting upgraded, our world is changing and at times it feels like "forward progress is STOPPED" intermingled with "EVERYTHING IS FALLING APART" and a dash of "WHAT THE HELL WAS I [...]

The Undoing

Imagine the possibilities... It's funny to me that it has been 8 months since I "left my day job" as a public school teacher, yet I still feel the passing of time in terms of the school year.  For instance, my husband and I were talking about probably not being able to make plans this year "for Spring Break"....when I realized that no longer applies to me! I  am no longer limited to that ONE WEEK IN THE SPRING [...]

Follow the GPS in your Heart

Corn maze 2012 A few weeks ago I had an amazing experience that seems to keep nagging at me, reminding me to put it down in writing and put it out there....so here I go. I had been invited by a dear friend to go to a women's circle gathering, and even though it was a crazy busy time for me, and it was located over an hour away from me, in Miami, and I'd have to travel through multiple [...]

Where will YOU go?

Tiger, tiger, burning bright... Every night as part of my son's bedtime routine, we pick 1 or 2 books to read. My son has loved books since he was a toddler (as do I) and his collection started even before his birth. So the nightly reading can range anywhere from"Everyone Poops" (no I'm not kidding and yes, he's been potty trained for years) to Ranger Rick magazine, to "The DK Encyclopedia of the Human Body" (limited to 5 [...]

"Set It, and Forget It!"

I know that sounds very much like a line from an infomercial. In fact, I'm pretty sure it probably is. But there is also a lesson hidden there. The lesson for this week (for me) it seems, is to set an intention, put it out there, and let it go. So often I feel like I have to try "really hard" and "work really hard" to make something happen. When I take this approach, I end up feeling like I [...]

"It's Not You, It's Me"

Today I want to stretch your spiritual muscles. Stretching is good for you, although it can be difficult at first, and will leave you (possibly) sore for a bit. But think big picture here! Think a little discomfort now for big personal growth later. Are you with me? Let’s start by playing pretend. You know, like you used to when you were a little kid and you played superheroes using sticks as swords, or played dress-up or something. Good. Now [...]

Shift Happens

I woke up today, startled by the alarm clock. I was shocked out of a dream I was having. Again. Twice in 2 days. Actually I should say it was a nightmare. I can't remember the exact details, but I do remember it had to do with my Mom (who passed away 20 years ago) and my Dad (who is still alive but not doing well). This is noteworthy because in 20 years, I can honestly say I have had [...]
