Choosing love over judgment...

September 23, 2017

It’s easy to fall into the trap of judging another who is not like you…from the most basic aspect as hair color, financial status, or disability to the intangible constructs of ideas, dreams, desires, and beliefs. Recently, I was criticized…no, accused…of not being Christian…as if that is a requirem…

A ripple of positivity...

August 26, 2017

Over the past month, there has been so much intense energy in the air! With the Lunar Eclipse, Solar Eclipse, 8-8 Lion’s Gate, Planetary Retrogrades, and so much more happening astrologically in August, I’ve noticed that emotions have run high and behavior seems incongruent in many ways. Some will s…

May 14, 2017

In April, I went on a grand adventure, traveling over 7,000 miles across the Western half of the United States. Along this journey, I had the honor of experiencing many magical moments…the peacefulness of the open plains, the majesty of the mountains, the power of the ocean, and the willfulness of t…

The power of visualization

March 19, 2017

Over the past few newsletters, we have been exploring techniques for shifting perspective. There are so many options for doing so, we need only choose one and let the shifting begin.

Time to let love in...

February 11, 2017

For many, February is celebrated as the month of love and romance. You see it everywhere: along the candy aisles, the floral shop, and in advertisements for romantic dinners. The mantra is the same every year: love is in the air. It has been marketed this way for as long as most of us can remember. …

Setting Powerful Intentions...

January 7, 2017

The beginning of any new year brings to us new opportunities. It's a powerful time.

Living a Worry-Free Life...

October 7, 2016

It's a natural human tendency to worry. We have been conditioned to do so virtually our entire lives. We worry about our kids, our job, crossing the street safely, having enough money to buy groceries or pay the bills, whether we are on the right spiritual path in life...and the list goes on and on.…

The signs are everywhere...

June 4, 2016

So many times in life, we pray for a sign...which job should I take? Where should I move? What career is meant for me? Is it time for a change in my life? Please, just give me a sign! But, the question becomes...do we really pay attention to the signs we are given?

Amazingly, the signs we seek are …

An attitude of gratitude...

May 1, 2016

You may have noticed that we did not send out a newsletter in April. I was on an exciting adventure in Eastern Europe scouting locations to record meditations, perform spiritual work, and to hopefully one day soon lead spiritual tours. As an experiment, I created a few short meditations that I will …

September 20, 2015

There is an air of transformation afoot.  As our world and the people who reside here continue shifting in ever changing ways, I can't help but marvel at the beauty that is all around us.  It is true that some do not see this beauty or have been stagnant in life for so long while others have endured…

Uncharted Territory

July 29, 2013

Recently during an interview, I was asked what tips I might give to a prospective writer.  There were so many things I could have said, but in the end I settled on one tip...just do it!  There will always be some who are jealous and want to drag you down, or hope you won't surpass them in the writin…

In my counseling practice, I dwell not on the past but on the indomitable spirit of your will to go forward, to live in the present and prepare for a beautiful future.  Unfortunately, many who come into my office are stuck in the past, dwelling on issues they can no longer effect.  My patients bring…
