Your Flight is Canceled… Again!!!

My ongoing experience of surrendering has had more than a few tests in the past month. Leaving from my small town Airport had been subject to more and more weather and incoming flight delays than ever before. So I was somewhat prepared for some changes in my best laid plans. And as the old joke goes, Do you know how to make God laugh? Tell her your plans! Eventually I arrived at my final destination 2 days late, on the other side of the world from where I live. I had...

Paying Attention

A month ago I had a rather dramatic breakthrough in truly experiencing surrender and letting go of resistance. This was a whole body experience, not just something imagined in my mind. It was the difference between feeling a few raindrops and thinking “this is what it’s all about” compared to standing underneath a waterfall and being drenched with the totality of the experience. Thirty days hence many old patterns of resistance have surfaced to be observed, and in the...

Releasing Resistance

Releasing Resistance

There is a mental knowing of something that can often masquerade for the real thing. It is like the idea of what a cherry looks and tastes like and then the actual experience of ingesting the fruit. Seeing, feeling, smelling, and tasting all the different textures and the multitude of full sensations of truly experiencing what the actual thing is results in a very different reality. There is a world of difference between the two perceptions! In the same way I have recently...

Lost at Sea

I work with many people who are in crisis and going through Very difficult and challenging life experiences. I have had the dubious fortune to have had my own share of emotional, physical and spiritual crisis. When you’re in the process of such powerful forces and life challenges having some tools to assist you can be invaluable. I know from personal experience! Sometimes our life can suddenly, or so it seems, become overwhelming and we are lost, adrift in a sea of...

The Now Moment

The Now Moment

Here we are in this “now” moment and “now” and “now” and “now”… All is definitely not what it appears to be! We have been trained from birth to look and see in a narrow way that hides a vast reality going on all around us. We have been inculcated by our society to live in the future predicted by our past and often by our past wounds, not our greatness. We have been taken from our natural rhythms and forced to adjust and conform to a societal norm that generally...

Spring Cleaning

There are so many things that have shaped us into who we are and how we function and why we do the things that we do in the world right now. Our culture and the society we live in, our parents or parenting, schooling, friends, the work we do all shape us in various ways. Daily life exposes us to interactions, chemicals, toxins and stress from all kinds of different sources, seen, as well as unseen. A good spring cleaning can help clear away muck and energetic sludge that we...

Change and Alignment

My life is dedicated to personal growth, energetic alignment and embodying more and more of who and what I am with each breath, on a daily basis. In direct alignment with this is sharing my life‘s gifts to the best of my ability with those who feel aligned with what I have to offer and feel they will benefit from our connection, communion and mutual sharing. I am called to do this and love to be of service in this way. One of the challenges in the vocation that I feel...

Illuminating Fear

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” – from 1965 novel Dune by Frank Herbert In June 2001 for almost 3 months I was totally living without fear. There was no awareness of it or attention to...

Drawing the Circle

There is a poem that I’m very fond of by Edwin Markham: “They drew a line that shut me out, Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout! But love and I had the wit to win We drew a circle and brought them in.” Love is the glue that binds everything together. It is the essential ingredient, the highest intelligence that is forever calling you home. Love is calling you home to yourself and cares little for your plans, dreams and schemes. Love opens us continuously to the mystery...

Golden Pyramid Meditation

I’m wondering if you feel like your life is moving at an incredibly fast pace? Mine certainly has, including travels to Mexico, Brazil and Japan in the last several months. I’m also finding that doing Sessions that involve working eight hours or so without appropriate breaks during this time has been more physically demanding on me then ever before. The Spirit is willing, but the body is protesting rather loudly right now. Now it’s my turn to use all the...
