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

20 Minutes

Last week I walked into my house after a long day at school where I work as a 2nd grade Teacher Aide. I had both of my small children (2 and 6 years old) in tow and I was extremely close to exploding. I will be honest... as much as I enforce morning time for… Continue reading 20 Minutes

The Ride of Your Life

At 8:55 am last Wednesday, my husband Jeramie and I stood in a long line of excited thrill seekers waiting to get on a brand new roller coaster at Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky Ohio... a mecca for roller coaster enthusiasts.

Several weeks ago I was plugged into my phone listening to some random music on YouTube. A song came on that I recognized, and I looked down to see that the artist was James Bay... the song, Hold Back the River. I clicked on his name and more songs came up, so I continued listening.… Continue reading Our Stories

Letting the Lions Out

I am a vivid dreamer. I dream in color and I dream multiple sequences every night. I remember a lot some mornings, and some mornings my dreams fade if I don't diligently tell myself to remember them. Some nights I'm awakened by a message to follow through with the next morning, sometimes my dreams feel… Continue reading Letting the Lions Out

Magic and Miracles

This morning I woke up from some pretty upsetting dreams. In my dream state there were several different experiences, and at their core was a theme of blaming myself for the uncomfortable situations that were taking place. If I had done this differently, if I had said this instead of that, if I had been… Continue reading Magic and Miracles

The Real Reason for Upset

On January 1st this year, I began doing the workbook of A Course in Miracles. The Course is a spiritual text that was translated in the 1970's with the intention to help us unlearn some of the habits and thoughts in our lives that create chaos. It talks in great detail about the role of… Continue reading The Real Reason for Upset
