Waking Up

“Once you wake up and smell the coffee, it’s hard to go back to sleep.” ~ Fran Drescher I used to be absolutely and undeniably obsessed with trying to get people to wake up. “Be present with your heart!” I would whisper to them as they slept. “Know that you are loved. You are here to play. It’s okay be yourself. Trust the things that happen in your life. God is love. YOU are love. You are divinely guided. Trust your body. Trust your emotions. Trust yourself. Trust life.” What felt true in my system back then was that I was awake. And that they were asleep. It...

Nourishment

“Do Not Put Those Unwanted Ingredients in Your Pie.” Abraham Hicks I had a very disturbing experience at Newark Airport yesterday. I went to a restaurant where you were exclusively ‘served’ via an iPad. There were some actual human servers around to bring your food, but no one interacted with anyone. No eye contact, no greeting, no friendliness, NO CONNECTION. You ordered your food and paid on the iPad with your credit card. It was the weirdest thing ever! I hated it!!!!! Is this a thing??????????? Oh, and unbeknownst to me, they automatically added on a 20% tip for the...

Why Feeling Yourself Is The Bomb Diggity

When I was small, there were many “truths” I swallowed hook, line, and sinker. When you grew up, you were supposed to do certain things. Like, get a job, have health insurance, stay at said job a long time, send cards at the right time, fit yourself into the fabric that is around you… You know, settle down. But I never could seem to do those things. I had some amazing jobs, sure. Health educator, elementary school teacher, training manager. Those were some awesomesauce jobs. But staying at the job ~ not quite my forte. Sending the cards? Didn’t always happen. Fitting into the...

How Can I Begin Befriending My Body?

“Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.”      Oprah Winfrey A few weeks ago, I attended my 30th High School Reunion. Argh. In high school, I was the ‘girl with the brace’, as I was in the midst of a five year treatment plan for a sever-ish case of scoliosis. Talk about hating your body! Let’s just say, it wasn’t all Deenie, if you ever happened to read that Judy Blume book about a teen with scoliosis. Deenie accepted her scoliosis with exceptional teenage...

Life’s Whispers

“There are no mistakes, no coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from.”    – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross A few days ago, I was strangely a key player in a car accident, yet completely uninvolved. A rare sunny spring day in Portland, I was walking home from the market, my neighborhood co-op, and was ready to cross a fairly busy street by my house. There was a crosswalk and although cars are supposed to stop for pedestrians, many do not. A large pickup truck had kindly stopped for me to cross; inside were two Portland city workers with friendly faces. I waited for...

Freedom

“Sometimes you’ve got to let everything go – purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you’ll find that when you’re free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.”  - Tina Turner Wow. This statement is bold. B O capital L D. Get rid of the things that you are unhappy with? What would happen if people really did this? I seriously am having trouble imagining what our world would look like if people got rid of things that they were unhappy with. We are all specialists, to one degree or...
