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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

The "Back to School" that wasn't

This past week was tax-free saving week a.k.a. back to school shopping week here in Florida. So I did what any respectable parent and teacher would do, go shopping for back to school clothes and supplies. But what you don't know is for teachers, it is about that same  time where we start to feel the "Oh my God, is the summer really over? Do I really have to go back so soon? What's my schedule going to be like? How [...]

Life Lessons from a Four-Year-Old, Vol. 1

Last weekend we had a full, fun, exhausting day, which included me attending a birth starting in the wee hours of the morning, then coming home and putting on my "Super Mom" hat, picking up my son and taking him to a birthday party. It was fun, but overwhelming at times. I was beyond exhausted. On our way home, I had to stop at Publix as we were completely out of a few staples my 4-year-old son can't do without. [...]

"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 [...]

East-over at the Temple of Juniper

I am spiritual,  not religious. I find myself saying that more and more often these days, as it really does best describe my position. It came out of my mouth out loud for the first time as my 4-year-old, always questioning, got upset the other day because he said he had "no religion" and was angry and crying about it. I guess it was being discussed at school with the upcoming holiday, and he has heard references in the past [...]
