Dominoes

Last week I had a reading of my Akashic records. I'd heard about it, didn't really quite understand what it was or how it worked, but I was curious, as always. She did a meditation and prayer and then began to receive information from her Spirit guides in the Akash. We sat silently together - … Continue reading Dominoes

Blessed

Earlier this evening, I sat out on my front steps - just being. Even though I now live right off a two-lane highway, it is a quiet road most of the time. My dog lay nearby, and I heard … a woodpecker knocks on a nearby tree; songbirds practice their evensong; one of the horses … Continue reading Blessed

Lies

There are very few things that 'get' me the way that lies do. I understand little white lies that do no harm and ease your life and the lives of others. The key word here is 'little'. Of no consequence. But it seems that lies are a big commodity right now both in the larger, … Continue reading Lies

I Don’t Wanna!

When I was a child, under seven certainly, I did not want to go home with my parents after a visit to my dad's parents. I was so clear about "I don't wanna!" that I would hide under their bed. Way in the back so no one could get at me from either side. Many … Continue reading I Don’t Wanna!

We studied together in the same coaching certification program and have spoken with one another almost every week over those years. We've gone in very different directions professionally - she is now a successful executive coach while I turned to integrate my … Continue reading Slow and Steady
