We need to have a sense of worthiness that is independent of what we can do for or offer to others, that is independent of how we look or what we accomplish.

A little over 20 years ago, I was coaching a high school girls’ sports team. The athletic department had instructed us coaches to let our players know that if any student athletes were caught smoking or drinking alcohol, they would be summarily dismissed from the team and no longer allowed to play the rest ofContinue reading “When I First Started Doing Intuitive Readings”
I found a bin of my old papers in the basement a few mornings ago when I was looking for a toaster oven. I brought the papers upstairs to check them out. There were letters that I wrote to my Mom from when I lived in Spain and lots of letters and writings from whenContinue reading “Healing Is An Ongoing Journey & Perfection Isn’t Part of the Deal”
When I was diagnosed with cancer a little over five years ago, a friend of mine gifted me that Rose Quartz healing stone (above). It joined my circle of healing stones (below) as part of my healing rituals and meditations.

Most of us have some awareness of the healing power of love. Often, when we think about that, we think about directing love outward – toward others.
