Confession

I let the phone gently hit the floor With a dull and crashing thud It had to be done I was glued to the thing And paying attention to superficial me Worried about likes and loves It’s irrelevant you see I’m banging my head up against the wall On a rather regular basis I’ve forgotten… Continue reading Confession

Science of the Soul

Several months ago I sat at my computer reading over a list of possible retreat options. Usually once a year, if not twice, I visit The Peace Village... a meditation and learning center located in the Catskill Mountains, about 90 minutes from my home in upstate New York. I have been to several different themed… Continue reading Science of the Soul

Your Power

There was a time in my life when I would sit in front of our old TV and watch The Wizard of Oz (in its entirety) on repeat over and over and over ...day after day. Ask my mom! She'll vouch for me. I had Oz dolls, books, ornaments, posters, signs, figurines. I even used… Continue reading Your Power

Lighter

I hit the snooze bar 5 times this morning. The thing that got me out of bed was my commitment to a good friend who wanted to come down to the beach with me and meditate with the lake. I finally got up, grabbed some coffee and my blanket and got down to the beach.… Continue reading Lighter

Your Work

Over the past few months I have been making some pretty important discoveries while reading Tarot. There are many different "types" of cards that come into play during the course of the readings. There are some cards that are about your mind, thinking and logic. There are some that are more geared at your emotions,… Continue reading Your Work

The assembly lasted about an hour and when it ended, I felt such a great deal of love for the kids, for my co-workers, and for the presenters. The main theme was that all of… Continue reading Speak Your Peace

Proud of You

A few years ago I began a project that I never thought would happen for me. I was working on a podcast, a co-host for Natural Peace Radio... a podcast all about me and the work I've been doing for several years as a life coach, tarot advisor and healer. Like most things, I went… Continue reading Proud of You

The Star Card

It's been a while since I've written about a specific Tarot card but this is one of my ABSOLUTE favorites in the deck. The Star is one of the most stunning and encouraging cards in the Tarot. The woman in the card is shown vulnerable - even naked in some of my decks - asking… Continue reading The Star Card

Understanding the Anger

On the surface, I look like a pretty happy person. I have a wonderful life, children and a husband that I love, and that love me unconditionally. I have happy animals, a sweet and comfortable home. I have food in my belly, medications to keep me healthy. I have family around me, friends who love… Continue reading Understanding the Anger

Appreciation for the Sun

I picked my daughter up from school on Friday in a cold wintry mess. There was a cross between snow, slush and rain falling from the sky and it reminded me that winter is on its way in. Such is life in upstate New York! However cold and gross last week was though, the weekend… Continue reading Appreciation for the Sun
