Upcycle, Recycle, Reinvent, Recreate Your Life

Upcycle, recycle, reinvent, recreate your life. No need to start from scratch. Use what you have at hand – all your talents and skills, even from long ago – to wake up and reinvigorate dreams and passions. When we suppress, repress, and let our treasures lay unused and dormant, they fade and are less potent. Now

When You Think You are on Firm Foundations…

When you think you are on firm foundations, you find you really are on shifting sands. It’s easy to be placated by our perceptions and denials. We listen to those voices that delude us into thinking that we are safely ensconced on bedrock. Life is uncertain. Complacency will bring you to a numb and blind

Time Moves of its Own Accord

Time moves of its own accord. Our perception of time is directly related to our emotional, mental, and physical states. Our spiritual state knows no time. So, when you’re meditating or ‘in the zone,’ time disappears for a time. You don’t lose or create time – just like you don’t lose or create energy – so

Beauty is Present

Beauty is present to allow us space to pause and wonder. Sometimes it catches us by surprise, takes our breath away momentarily, and automatically softens us. There are so many gifts to be found when we allow beauty into our lives. What will your day bring your way? Embrace the beauty in your life. Let it connect

Growth Requires Great Periods of Rest

Growth requires great periods of rest. Rest rejuvenates, repairs, and renews. High, energetic growth spurts will require deep, intensive, integration. Growth through progressive periods of intentional progress is easier on the physical and mental bodies. Either way, rest is required for the expansion growth brings. What will your day bring your way? Choose growth and expansion at

Stroll Through the Houses of Your Inner World

Stroll through the houses of your inner world. Go ahead. You are made up of so many compartmentalized aspects. These are your little houses within you. You open the door to one and there are joyful and fabulous memories for you to experience and remember. Another door opens to trauma, sadness, and fear. Another may open

Take Time to Heal

Take time to heal. Attend to your grief. Acknowledge it. Feel it. Release it. Heal your mind, body, and spirit. Pause. Rest. Be. When you focus on healing all of you, you activate the energy of the witness. Detach. Be an observer of yourself. Examine your thoughts, deeds, and actions. Discover where you were sleepwalking through

There is More than One Way to Travel

There is more than one way to travel. While most of us go automatically to manmade modes of transport which are due for a real evolution, I am hinting at reading, writing, speaking, daydreaming, and dreaming, etc. We can even travel by allowing our energetic body to roam. I may not be able to physically move

Heat Can be Taxing

Heat can be taxing. So can cold. Whether you are in the thick of things or on the outside looking in, the result is the same. Extremes drain you of your energy and your resourcefulness. Instead, pursue a more balanced approach. When you put self-care at the heart of your agenda, you will find that everything

Discover Your Courage, Resilience, and Determination!

Discover your courage, resilience, and determination! Take a look at your doubts and fears. Do this while they aren’t sparring for prominence in your thoughts and you have an opportunity to invite them to become part of a line up to show off what they’re made of and can do. You are in the audience, a

Authenticity Seems to Have Become

Authenticity seems to have become another word for perfection. When did that happen? The Merriam-Webster dictionary says authenticity means ‘worthy of acceptance or belief as conforming to or based on fact, or conforming to the original.’ The Cambridge English dictionary says it means ‘the quality of being real or true’ and the Collins dictionary says it
