With Deep Gratitude

Today I pulled an oracle card to remind me of what is important for the day. What came up was ‘Gratitude’ - ‘be grateful for all that you have’.  I have to be honest, there are times when this card comes up and my reaction is immediately one like “oh great… this again”. It sounds… Continue reading With Deep Gratitude

Heaven and Earth

I was born as an earthy sign With my karma and my duties very much alive Taking place at home on solid ground. My feet are tough and so am I I move and climb Putting distance behind All the places I’ve been - checking them off in my mind. I’ve got a little baby… Continue reading Heaven and Earth

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

Working With the Moon

There have been many nights in my life where I would wake up out of a deep sleep because of the sudden feeling of a spotlight in my room. I would wake, a bit disoriented and realize that it wasn't an actual spotlight, but the brightness of the moon poking through pine trees in through… Continue reading Working With the Moon

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

Now this same friend tells me that she doesn't remember our conversation and has never been to Peace Village... ironic. I'm happy to say I've been… Continue reading The Peace Village

New Cards

When my Tarot Cards first found me, it was a perfect situation. A few days before I was introduced to my deck a friend of mine had been talking to me about a deck he thought I would enjoy called The Dreaming Way Tarot. I hadn't really had much time to research the cards but… Continue reading New Cards

Snow Day

Do you remember when you were a kid and you would pray for a snow day (or two!) anytime the weather forecast called for possible snow accumulation? Now that I'm working in a school, I've found myself - in more ways than one - reverting back to some of my childhood ways. Today my snow… Continue reading Snow Day

Always (Always!) Learning

Two weeks ago I started working a new job... a job I know is way bigger than what it appears to be. I am a Teachers Aide in charge of 19 amazing 2nd graders in a small town in upstate NY. So much has changed in my life over the past year that it is… Continue reading Always (Always!) Learning

Determined to See

Several years ago, I remember having a conversation with a few of my friends about our personalities. It came up for me, that I am a very stubborn and determined person. Those who know me are free to snicker... because to this I am guilty. It turns out that astrologically speaking, I am a Capricorn… Continue reading Determined to See
