School of HP: Astrology vs. Numerology…Who is right?

There is an old saying, “Once the student is ready, the master will appear.” I imagine you like me have found that statement to be true. Once we are truly ready to learn, then we all of a sudden “run into” a teacher or hear the information on the radio, have a friend who unexpectedly calls, etc. etc. etc. That is the way the Universe works.  The laws of the Universe have been explained in many texts throughout history and many disciplines exist to assist us with discovery of who we are and our place in the world.  Some turn… Read more.

Feeling Creatures Who Think

Last week I shared Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor’s TEDx Talk with you and the idea that choosing to stay angry affects both your body and your mind. This week I’d like to share another powerful concept that Dr. Jill makes: that we are feeling creatures who think. We are not thinking people who feel, yet this is what our society believes and values – which is at the heart of many of our issues. Here is the science and biology behind it. Our limbic system is constantly asking, “Am I safe?” If things feel familiar to our limbic system, then we feel calm and safe. The system… Read more.

Bouncing with Style: Thinking about Thoughts

I have been reading about thoughts lately. I know that sounds a bit weird, but when I was in court a few weeks ago I watched this grandmother talking to her grown grand-daughter about how thinking too much gets her in trouble. I remember my own mother telling me that in my teens. “Thinking is good,” she said to me, “but, thinking too much will get you in trouble.” I have also been quiet lately – talking less since my radio shows are pre-recorded for the summer months – and listening more. I listen for message from the universe, from… Read more.

However justified you may feel in being right and holding a grudge, you’re choosing to suffer. If you let it go, you’re choosing to be alive.

The Key to LIFE – Living In Full Expression

We would not be inspired to do something if it were not intended to be. And if it is intended to be, all for it to be, will be provided.

Living Intuitively In the Present Moment

My daughter, Raegan, has taught me much on this intricate journey of ours. She has shown me how to love, believe in God, and detach from my anger, fear, and frustration. Her smile and effervescent spirit is the ideal demonstration of perfection in imperfection—she does not allow her fragile, broken body to dim the brilliant light of her soul. We have learned to embrace our world, taking each day as it comes, thankful and blessed to be together, not allowing fears of the future to interfere with our joy of the present moment. We choose to leave our feelings of… Read more.

When you live your life with a glowing heart, you are making a choice to access and flow with Divine energy. You are choosing to live in Love!

Creating Hope from Heartache

Barbara Marx Hubbard says that “Crisis is an evolutionary driver.” Our world is certainly in crisis. I passionately believe the ultimate way to take part in the evolution of humankind is to wholeheartedly embrace our unique individual gifts and ferociously share them with others. The God within is calling out to all of us to contribute to each other in unconventional and profound ways. Rather than search for love, be love. Rather than wish the world would change, be the change. Honor your divinity within. Embody kindness, and let your generous spirit guide you. Cherish all your relationships, especially those… Read more.

Transformation occurs when you listen to the voice that calls out from your soul.

Never Stop Loving and Learning

1. Realize that there is not always a tomorrow for everyone that you encounter. Treat each and every meeting with someone as your last with them. It may be. Even if you stayed in the place where you were born and raised, people, friends and family come and go. In my case, I left two countries that are home to both family and close friends to start a life in my husband’s country where I have met new family and made new friends. Unfortunately, I have not been able to see the many family and friends that I would have… Read more.

Never stop loving and never stop learning. Both are infinite.

How Long Does it Take to Reach a Dream?

Sometimes dreams take a little longer than we expect, but with perseverance and belief, they will come true – all in good time. Many years ago I had a stained glass art studio that I loved. Through divorce and the challenges of life, I lost my studio. I packed the materials, knowing that I’d have one again, but I didn’t know where or when. For the last year I’ve been working on a project inside Glacier National Park, called Glacier Bear Retreat. As you might know, we bought an old cabin, removed it from the property and built our new… Read more.

The Power of Dreams, Love, and Gratitude

Before my daughter goes to bed at night, I reaffirm to her what I believe are some of the most important thoughts and beliefs that I have used to guide me, my closest family, my friends, and my patients as well. These are the principles that I share with her: One, believe in your dreams and desires and know that there is absolutely no limitation for any of them. It is not our job to ask as to how they will be provided by the universe, but simply to trust that you will achieve them and receive them. It is… Read more.

When your heart is filled with love, there is no room for anything else, and it will beat and pulse this love through your whole being. With this circulating force within you, you create your destiny, and you know it must be filled with that same love.

School of HP: Take a Breath… (Poem)

Every day is filled with choices What to eat or how to dress, Everywhere we turn – are voices Re-defining our success. Heads are full of information Thoughts are flying at high speeds, Adding only to frustration Of not getting what we need. We are horses and the riders And we’re racing way too fast. If we don’t remove the blinders And slow down – we will not last. Just relax and do not hurry, Few times daily take a breath. Give that cloud of constant worry Enough time so it can pass. Even though we won’t admit it We’re… Read more.

Sing a Song of Gratitude

Sing a song of gratitude, every day, to remind yourself daily how to be thankful. Remember that the Universe loves you. The Universe loves me. Love is within, without, and all around us. Love is in every being, every object, every thing. Remember the magic of life that is in life. Play with the faeries and angels and animal spirits. Let them be your helpers. Thank your ancestors and all those who have come before us, for the lessons that they teach us and the help that they have given us, so that we can be here now. Smile. It… Read more.

How Can I Support My Suffering Sibling?

“My sister is going through a very difficult time in her life with her daughter who is suffering with depression and her son who has a fatal disease. She is usually a very strong character (type A personality). What kind of support or resources can I give her? We just lost our mom and I feel that she may be suffering with depression as well. Your help would be appreciated. Thanks.” ~ Pauline, Canada Dear Pauline, I am so sorry that your sister is in the midst of so much grief in her life right now. I’m sure she feels… Read more.

Why Stay Angry?

“Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.” – Mark Twain What was the last thing that made you angry? The bad driver cutting you off? Your kids not picking up their toys? You were passed over for a promotion? How long did you stay angry? An hour? A day? A week? According to Harvard-trained and published neuroanatomist Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, your anger should only last for ninety seconds. To feel an emotion we need to think a thought which then stimulates an emotional circuit… Read more.

Bouncing with Style: Getting Back on Track

A few weeks ago I was on a roll. I was working out, eating healthy, working hard and parenting at my best. Then a truck came again, in the form of an ex-relationship rearing its ugly head, and ran me over. It knocked out one of my kids and flattened the other. So I found myself in “Stop! Assess! Manage! Survive!” for a few weeks while I guided our tippy family ship into safe waters. It took all I had to keep a baseline going in my business, handling the emotional fallout for my kids, and you guessed it –… Read more.
