Are Meaningful Coincidences Showing Up In Your Life?

Are Meaningful Coincidences Showing Up In Your Life?

  Long before I became aware of Carl Jung’s writings on synchronicity, archetypes, dream interpretation and the collective unconscious, I noticed synchronicities or "meaningful coincidences” all the time. Deja Vu's and mini-premonitions littered my life. I bet...

Einstein, Alice, Mozart, And Me In India.

Friends! As I am reconnecting with my roots and visiting loved ones in India, and away from writing my weekly blog, I thought we could share space in a slightly different format: anecdotes that make me think and chuckle. Let’s start with this one. A scene that took...

Come With Me To India!

Come With Me To India!

I'm off to India, the land of my birth. For the next couple weeks, I'll be staying in a small village which is home to peacocks and wonderful people. In fact, I will be staying in the house I was actually born in. It has been 19 years since I was last there and my...

Let’s Just Stop and Relax For A Moment

For this moment together let's relax.  Let all the stuff fall away, the heavy load of duties or the piles of laundry, the exercise plans, and even the health issues, and stretch your wings. Yes, your wings. Just imagine them, unfolding and opening out of your back....

A purpose-filled life. What would that look like for you? For some, it may mean being with the right partner, while for someone else it may mean a great job, for another still it could be being a parent. There are also those wonderful beings who want to serve...

20 Million Motivations For You!

I was out walking and I couldn’t shake this piece of news off: “More than 20 million people in four countries are at risk of starvation and famine.” That’s what UN humanitarian chief, Stephen O'Brien, told the UN Security Council. I find that going without food, even...

Resetting Your Reality

Resetting Your Reality

Resetting Reality is a game I play when I go for a  walk or watch the world go by through the windshield, especially on days when my senses are feeling hyper-aroused by the news, or life in general. Perhaps the level of effort required these days to sift through all...

Dancing with Myself #howilearnedtolovemybodyagain

I've been in a long-term, committed relationship with my body for nearly my entire life. Like any relationship, it's had its ups and down. We have not always been on the same page and there have been times it felt like we didn’t  even know each other. Those are normal...

How Positive Are You?

How Positive Are You?

How positive are you? Are you positive to the point to of unicorns, rainbows and happily ever afters? Or are you positive enough to see your glass as half full? Are you just positive enough to list what you're grateful for? And shiny enough to know the world won't...

Want To Do It Different This Time

Want To Do It Different This Time

  Funny, how what we teach can very quickly become what we need to practice ourselves. Last week, I told several clients: “do it different this time” as they navigated situations that were triggers for them. Instead of going to their default mode of worrying,...

Lady Gaga, Trump and How To Achieve Your Goals

Lady Gaga nailed it. She made us feel good as we watched her spectacular halftime performance at the Super Bowl. She sang, jumped from the roof,* sang some more, danced and leaped off again. It was exhilarating to watch. I wanted more. Then, for a moment, my mind...

If We Want Our Voices Heard We’d Better Listen Too

  I marched in Santa Fe, NM as part of the Women’s march on Saturday. I saw people from different walks of life, but more than what I saw, I felt. I felt the positivity and community. I felt joy and I sensed people connecting, moving together for a greater good....

Different and alike

Different and alike

Recently, my husband shared this tidbit : We have 99.9% of the same DNA. We are all close, close, close. Close as twins. 7.5 billion individuals genetically matching each other. All nearly the same, with similar hopes, dreams, fears and hostilities. Although there are...

Device Time – How To Make It Work For Your Family

  I love technology; laptops, smartphones, tablets, and their A.I.s like Siri, Alexa, and Cortana. What I don't like is the hold they can have over all of us, especially our kids. I've noticed that they become almost obsessive in their efforts to get more device...

Awesome is too small a word for 2017

  As for 2016, it was a year that made us all wake-up, right? It reminds me of a story attributed to the Buddha (aka Siddhartha Gautama) (SG) where he is asked by a Brahmin priest (BP): Are you a celestial being? SG: No. BP: A spirit of some kind? SG: No. BP: A...

Be. Here.NOW!

Be. Here.NOW!

As much as we love spending time with our families there are times when they drive us completely bonkers. Families are complex hierarchies and oftentimes ruled by spoken and unspoken agreements. Feet get trodden on, feelings get hurt and tempers flare. Anytime I feel...
