Live as if you are Camping

Lately, I have found myself very scattered mentally, not so focused. Have any of you felt this way recently too? The good thing for me this time, however, is that I have listened to my guidance this month – I have slowed down and made more frequent trips into the woods to ground myself into the present moment. I have learned the hard way from not listening to guidance that when I run like a racecar my autoimmune issues resurface and I do not want to drive down that path again. I am thinking that perhaps the need to slow down in the midst of the craziness of reality has probably contributed...

The Still Small Steps

Feeling my footing Swaying back and forth A fulcrum of bone Wrapped in Achilles’ vulnerability Until fully planted One foot at a time Rebalancing, securing Rebalancing, securing Uncertain of a certain destination But trusting the still, small steps Trusting the still, small steps is not always an easy thing to do is it? In a security obsessed culture filled with rules, regulations, retirement plans and insurance policies for all kinds of situations, taking steps into the unknown can be terrifying. We want so much to feel safe and secure. And although the physic’s Law of Entropy dictates that...

I Am Enough

I have found myself in that place again — that place of unrealistic expectations. Have you ever been there? The inner voice that cracks the whip? It is a very familiar voice. I have known it and had to listen to it all of my life. I am not unique in this. It is part of being human. It is kind of a protective guardian gone haywire. I truly believe that this voice thinks it has my best interest but I have found it to be the grand saboteur of all that is good. It truly strips me of my power and never makes me feel good about myself. Since I have consciously embarked on my spiritual path and...

Ruffling Feathers

The silver, gray form jumped onto the suspended cylinder and swung to and fro using tremendous dexterity and all his might to keep from tumbling to the Earth below. “Clumsy,” was the word that first came to mind followed by, “that bugger!” But I found myself more and more entranced until I was cheering wholeheartedly for the furry rascal that had ingeniously infiltrated my precious bird feeder. I guess he didn’t get the memo that the odd looking device filled with sunflower delights was strictly for the feathered creatures. Oddly, the birds were less agitated...

Death, Rebirth and Winter

Winter is an interesting season. I confess it is not my favorite time of year and that very well may stem from the fact that it follows on the footsteps of December, a month that ushers in all kinds of rushing, intensity, and darkness, deep darkness. When I was younger I used to stay up late. I was a night owl and I would sleep away the morning sunshine. I was not afraid of the dark back then. I thrived in it. Now as I am middle aged I crave the sunshine. If you had told me that I would be a morning person when I got older, I would have laughed. But nothing is permanent is it? Everything...

A Trip Through the Heart

“When you are sorrowful look again in your heart and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.” — Kahlil Gibran The heart is a very perplexing phenomenon. I say phenomenon because throughout history the heart has been seen as the gateway to our emotions, a purveyor of magnetism, the administrator of love, a muse of artistic endeavor, just that old ticker that pumps blood around, and many more interpretations which are often plagued by paradox and confusion. But, when another human being speaks of a broken heart, most of us know exactly what he or she...
