DAY 2: Whimsy & Humor

“Laughter is such an important healing force for me, and for most humans I would say. It takes us out of our daily humdrum, and at times challenging lives, and allows us to lighten up and see the extraordinary in the ordinary. It also brings us closer together – to ourselves and to others. And it stimulates the feel good chemicals in our body!”

31-Days of Joy & Laughter

“A couple of days ago I realized I no longer choose to have my attention taken by the fear, doom and gloom broadcast daily, whether on our smart phones news feed or while talking to others. I am weary of it all and need a higher vibration energy bath! It is not that I don’t want to know what is happening in the world, but instead the question I am posing to myself, and to you, every day is – where do we want to place our attention? We most always have a choice. For the month of December….”

Expect The Unexpected

“Ordinary life is filled with opportunities to perceive and experience magic, joy, astounding beauty, and the sacredness of life – even on the way home from the grocery store! Expect the unexpected. The more we share the….”

Compassionate Connection

“The identity that you have clung to for so many years may not claim the wholeness of who you are. There are unending opportunities each day to step out of our illusion of control and separateness, and instead see through a different lens. I wonder if everyone did one act of kindness and made someone laugh each day, whether that would change the world?”

For Presence

“Sometimes I forget what it is to be fully human. With all the consciousness, potential, diversity of emotions playing within, embodied physicality changing and shifting constantly, vulnerability that we sometimes push aside into a dark closet lest fear take the upper hand…..and the innate interconnected presence with everyone and everything. It is in those moments of forgetfulness that wonder, courage, presence and joy may recede into the background. is it possible…..”

Love Much, Think Less

“At times we are faced with challenges where the energies of love and gratitude seem a million miles away. Thinking takes over contracting us within a cage of our own creation. Yet, I am aware more and more that love is always right here surrounding every living being and every conscious action – even the act of breathing in and out which is intricately interwoven with all life. What if we saw within each and every challenge….”

A Touch of Magic

“Having been born and raised on the West Coast of California I had never seen fireflies. That is until I moved to Vermont some years back and found this magical display of flickering white lights all over the grass, bushes and trees. I felt as if I was a small child filled with wonder in those moments. I still do….”

Embodied Transitions

“Shifts and transitions are continually happening even if we don’t pay attention – within and without. Energy constantly shape shifting bringing magic and tragedy, delight and sadness, awe and forgetfulness. Are we paying attention, or lost in the mundane mainstream detailed oriented life we actually have never felt at “home” within.”….

The Twisted Tree

Have you ever reflected on the many twists and turns your life has taken as an embodied human being? Even in one of my all time favorite movies, The Wizard of Oz, the infamous yellow brick road twists and turns and along the way Dorothy meets each new character that will help her to return “home”……

You Only Die Once, But You Live Every Day

“Have you ever thought about quality of life moments versus years lived? For some it is when death touches us that we allow ourselves to contemplate, and come closer to, the relationship with our own potential death and that of our loved ones. The unique choices we will make when embodied time is drawing to a close…..”
