If you are an actor, or ever wanted to be one, you'd know that when it is time to play a role that you would do some preparation work. Perhaps you'd read your lines in the voice you want to use, or you might do some research into the character to get closer to the heart of the part you are playing. You would probably have someone outfit you in the costume, hair and make up for the part and you'd rehearse and rehearse until you feel confident that you have embodied the character.Read Full Post »

Over this past weekend, I had an opportunity to go to Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY to experience the Spring Ecstatic Chant weekend. Mantra, chant, music, laughter, dancing - pure magic!
As I relaxed on my meditation cushion surrounded by kindred spirits, the musicians and singers, all amazing and blessed with various gifts, I was transported into the dimension of the gods and goddesses, Shiva and Rama, Sita and Durga. So many gods and goddesses invoked and summone...Read Full Post »

David Bowie changed my life. As a teenager, I would listen to a cassette tape I had of Ziggy Stardust as I laid out in the back yard tanning. The song Moonage Daydream was one that always got me into the outer limits. I would imagine I was floating in space, far above the world, gathering up dust and particles, landing on foreign planets, tiptoeing around alien worlds. The sheer bliss I’d feel in his lyrics and music would transport me across the Universe a million gazillion miles f...Read Full Post »

Last night as I sat before a blank screen to create a radio show for this evening, I asked my angels and guides, what are we talking about this week? I kept hearing "in the beginning" circling in my head. So I wrote it down.
The explanation came to me as my mind wrapped around those words, "in the beginning". Those are the first words in the bible in Genesis where the traditional Christian creation story begins. I thought about science and where that creat...Read Full Post »

This came tumbling out of me at 4:30 this morning. I'm embracing my personality as it strengthens to serve my soul purpose, so no excuses for this.
I’m a handful. I always have been. I love myself and who I am so I can say these things about myself. Working as I do to always please people and gain approval, I have developed many skills and abilities. And so I wander the earth helping people, seeking out the odd ones so that I can reassure mysel...Read Full Post »

Tuesday, November 3, 2015 - Morning pages
i ... I...I...- Me...Me...Me...- Work...Work...Work. Okay, now that's out of the way, the morning can reveal to me her magic and mystery. To stop thinking and start feeling, to give last rites to a part of me that I no longer acknowledge, this is what the morning teaches.
After sleeping, dreaming, in the hours before the sun arises, when it is dark and sleepy outside, and the house is still and qui...Read Full Post »

The very first commandment of the 10 Commandments is:
"I am the Lord thy God, thall shall have no other gods before me"
When I was a little kid growing up in our Catholic household, I understood this to mean that there is only one God and that any other god or goddess, like Zeus or Athena that I learned about in school, was not to be worshipped. They were considered "false" gods. As I became attuned to angels a...Read Full Post »

No body knows what you've been through. No one can relate to what it's like to be inside your head, in your body, experiencing life as YOU. No one but you knows this, and yet, there are the very real presences around you who can energetically sense and feel what it is like to be you going through what you're going through.
Sounds nuts, doesn't it? Well, this is what I've learned:
You get to experience life through the filter that is YOU. Your body, your min...Read Full Post »

Complaints sometimes can be a trigger to feel inadequate, but I prefer to look at them as the best form of communication. In a complaint, you find out what is most important to someone. By complaining we can get some relief. We get heard and hopefully understood. Don't ever take a complaint personally. They are not directing their concerns at you, but at the situation or result.
When we hear of a complaint, we address it head on and do our best to an...Read Full Post »

Remaining in a state of awareness, mindful of the sound of the crickets and the bubbling of the turtle tank outside my window, I settle into a place of uncomfortable presence. The awareness of my own presence and the options that are before me - to do - always to do are uncomfortable, almost unbearable. Things that need to be done - optional things.
