Wake Up and Begin Again

I awoke from a dream yesterday morning, the day after Christmas, feeling both tensed and relieved. I wonder  if you ever have one of those dreams where you are trying desperately to get somewhere but keep bumping into sooooo many obstacles that your destination seems to get further away and absolutely impossible to find? In my dream, I needed to get to the airport but despite all best efforts, it wasn’t happening and even in my Read More

What Am I Pretending Not To Know?

This question rose up in me several months ago and I jotted it down like I do when something comes to mind that doesn’t feel like my own — something that is deep but feels really important to ponder. Frankly, I didn’t really like this question so I turned the page quickly only to stumble on it several times since then … again, just moving right along.  But each time the question was repeated in Read More

Why Do I Always Do That?

Do you ever catch yourself reacting or behaving a certain way, and wonder “why do I always do that”?  Do you ever wish you could stop?  You can—once you become aware of the behavior or pattern and decide you’ve had enough, change can begin.  It is actually quite simple—not always easy.  Our beliefs are often someone else’s that are set up at a very early age yet continue to program our responses and reactions whether Read More

Recently she was dog sitting a big dog and decided she had always wanted to run with a big dog so on goes the running shoes for her and the leash for Frodo and off they went..almost! Frodo’s focus was ‘see a tree, gotta pee’ so there wasn’t much running going on, so she Read More

Suffering, struggling or barely surviving? Then change states

Depending on your current life disposition, some of you may hear this statement as “pack your bags and move to Nebraska” if life isn’t happening as you had always hoped. Hopefully, more of you heard, “if you want something different to occur in your life, change your state of being.” How you heard this statement will speak volumes about your level of awareness and how you are thinking. So, without judgment, simply “check in” to Read More

If I Knew Then What I Know Now….

Do you ever wish you could have a “do over” of experiences in your past? As it turns out, you can — it is called imagination.  The brain records everything in present time and doesn’t know the difference between what we perceive and what is imagined — they both create neural pathways that affect our health, behaviors, relationships and even our surroundings. We can go back to any experience recorded from our past, even decades Read More
