Community in a Time of Need

Our situation requires us to be flexible and work together for the common good. The current coronavirus is reminding us that we are all interconnected and that we all need to rely on each other to survive and acquire basics of life, food, health care, and social connection.

Body-Mind Connection

The mind-body connection is real. However, there is also a body-mind connection. The health or lack of health of our body also affects our emotional well being. Many years ago, I had a client whose daughter was diagnosed with severe anxiety. She was put on medication to calm her down, even though she was only in elementary school. I knew that her family lived in an area where Lyme disease was an epidemic. So, I suggested to the mother that a Lyne disease test would be wise. The girl’s Western Blot test came back definitively positive. Not surprisingly, once she was taken off anxiety medication and treated successfully for the Lyme disease, her anxiety stopped.

Astrology as a Tool for Parenting

Few relationships are more significant, complicated, and ongoing than parent and child. From the first day, the parent-child dynamic is a two-way street of learning and teaching. One of the challenges in communicating about parenting or the parent-child dynamic is that relationships are nuanced. As a result, any universal swathing of theory is doomed to fail. Astrology as a tool for parenting is a remarkable way to understanding the uniqueness of each child and comprehending this parent-child dynamic.

Here is an example: A client came to me last year because her then 11-year old son was battling her every night about avoiding homework. In addition to this being frustrating and exhausting for both of them, it was significantly impacting his learning and grades. In speaking with my client and in looking at her son’s astrology chart, I saw clearly that part of the issue was the physical environment where her son was trying to do his homework: the kitchen table. Now this can be a perfectly suitable environment for some children to study, but not for him. This boy was born when the planet Mercury was in Taurus. Read more…

Clarity is Our Greatest Protection

I am in the San Francisco bay area at an airport hotel. Last night I was woken up at 3:20am by an 6.0 earthquake. What actually woke me was the noise of everything in my room and the building itself moving. I turned on the light and then watched my room shift back and...

Bring Your Best Self to Life

Depression is not a disease in the typical sense of the word, but it is dis - ease. I believe it is perfectly logical for any sensitive, smart person without a spiritual perspective in our world to be depressed. Depression and discouragement are really the same thing....

Life Is A School

Life is a school. Every situation or event contains a lesson for each of us. This is a powerful lesson in itself; for when we approach experience from the perspective that there’s something to be learned, then everything that occurs—however painful, puzzling, or...

Illuminating Your Consciousness

When we walk into a darkened room, all the furniture, books, lamps, all the details in the room exist, we just can’t see them. When the light is turned on everything becomes clear. Consciousness is the light switch on the wall. The details of life exist, we just can’t...

Meditate to Go Beyond Preconceived Notions

In my spiritual work and classes, I don’t ask people to have faith. Instead I teach tools for direct spiritual experiences. Having faith in something that you have not experienced or perceived can be confusing or dangerous. Just think of religious wars throughout...

Supporting Our Spiritual Nature through Ongoing Classes

I will be starting my beginning and on-going classes soon, mid-September. As I start the process of setting them up, I am reflecting on why I have chosen the format of on-going classes, instead of workshops. My guides have said, the two challenges we face that need...

Let Go and Know

In my meditation this morning I heard, “Let go and know.” This phrase reminded me how we are taught to try to figure things out with our minds alone. Going over details again and again, trying to make sense of a situation, conversation, or rejection. This culturally...

Waiting for Clarity in Decision Making

Decisions, decisions - Sometimes when I need to make a decision and look out of my third eye or meditate for insight, there just isn’t clarity. As I have observed this experience through the years I’ve become aware that the clarity can’t come, because all the data...

Find Success In Self-Actualization

What is success? My guides define success as the ability to actualize our spiritual nature. This is easy to say, but not so easy to do in a world where there is a very different definition. Our worldly definition of success focuses on getting ahead of others: more...

Let the Rest Unfold

Unconditional Love is not Unconditional Giving

Unconditional love does not mean unconditional giving. My guides say that unconditional love is always feeling we want the best for others no matter what. This means wanting spiritual growth for everyone, but it does not mean tolerating inappropriate behavior. Balance...

Appreciation Instead of Gratitude

Problems are Puzzles

Live in Attunement

Where is the line between self-denial and self-indulgence? This is a very interesting question to me. What behavior is selfish and what behavior isn’t considerate enough of our own needs? The answers to these questions are always situational. My guides say, “When you...

Healing Feelings of Inadequacy through Humility

The Transformative Possibility of Pain
