Values to Live By

On Thursdays, I meander across the road to sit at the local art gallery for the afternoon. I enjoy my time as docent. Often, it's quiet for hours, I can write, read, sit outside and watch the clouds sail over the mesas, and listen to the insects singing, invisibly, nearby. I chat with visitors to … Continue reading Values to Live By

Re-Turn

Long time, no see! I'm popping in to say, "hello" and to let you know what's going on in my world of practical spirituality. It's been just over two weeks and my life has been a whirlwind that, honestly, came out of nowhere. Chaos is not random, it is a way that random things come … Continue reading Re-Turn

Doorways

I'm sure you've heard the saying, "when one door closes another opens." It's part of a longer quote attributed to Alexander Graham Bell: When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us. I … Continue reading Doorways

Worthy

We often hear, in spiritual circles, that we are inherently worthy - that we do not have to do anything to prove ourselves, our simple existence is proof of worthiness. We may have a sense, an intuition, of what worthy really means - and what it might feel like - but many of us don't … Continue reading Worthy

Transformation

In my cauldron, I brew transformation, I am the shape-shifter, the sorceress that brings change into your life. I am the wise one, blending science and magic, drink from my cauldron of poetry and prophecy, wisdom and knowledge, inspiration and creativity. ~Lisa de St Croix Ceridwen: Welsh Deity ~ Her name means Sacred Song Transformation: … Continue reading Transformation

Free Yourself

Many long years ago, I was sitting across the table from my tarot mentor in her living room. She shook her head and sighed, "you're like a bird beating its wings against the cage when the open door is right next to you. You are already free." I had absolutely no idea of what she … Continue reading Free Yourself

Judgement

Some days are full of fabulous conversations, the ones that are a little challenging, that offer me the opportunity to consider, integrate, and grow. Whether it's friends, clients, or my new doctor - everyone has contributed to new insights ... and to opening the path to following my north Star. During one conversation, my client … Continue reading Judgement

Choosing

I can feel changes in the making; I'm not sure what direction they're coming from ... or will go ... but I can feel the subtle shifts of energy, folding and refolding into something new. Whenever changes are on the way, so are choices. Will we allow the change? Push and pull at it until … Continue reading Choosing

EnVision

As you become familiar with the tarot, you'll notice that some cards appear to be a performance on a stage, like the Six of Pentacles, and others are embedded in a scene. Today we see the performance of The Haves and the Have Nots in which the wealthy merchant weighs out the value of those … Continue reading EnVision

Goddess Rising

I have been so heartened by the many discussions arising from yesterday's fire at Notre Dame in Paris. And, at least in the people I follow on Twitter and am friends with on Facebook, the discussion has been sincere, heartfelt, and respectful. One group of people noted that millions of dollars have already been raised … Continue reading Goddess Rising

Burning

I wasn't 100% sure what I would post about today - one thought was a powerful conversation I had today that included a discussion about secrets (I'll save that for another day) and the other was the burning of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and, at the same time, the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, the … Continue reading Burning

Fear Itself

We have nothing to fear but fear itself. ~ Franklin Delano Roosevelt How many times have your thoughts skimmed over this quote from FDR without giving it much thought? Here's the full quote ... We have nothing to fear but fear itself - nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into … Continue reading Fear Itself

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
