What I learned about life at an amusement park

For my daughter’s 16th birthday a couple weeks ago, we spent the day at an amusement park. She enjoyed the rides and activities with her friends, and my husband and I tagged along. Although I feel fairly young, my body occasionally tells me differently—particularly after one of those roller coasters that turn upside down, flip… [Read More]

6 Tips to Ease Busyness

I’ve just emerged from 6 weeks of busyness. This busyness was the kind where even when I got much accomplished in the day, there was still so much more to do. Do you have those days, too? Weeks? Years, maybe? I know you do. We all have them at some point. I want to share… [Read More]

One Thing I Wish I’d Known Earlier

When growing up, I felt I wasn’t good enough. At anything. I also thought something was wrong with me. And I hid that from everyone. Recently, a client shared with me…perhaps for the first time in her life…something she feels is wrong with her and that she’s hidden from everyone. She feels evil. She shared with me the pain… [Read More]

Only One Year of Water Left

I live in California…and we’ve only one year of water left! That’s the talk in the media, on the news, and around town. No water. What’s everyone focusing on?  Drought….Drought…and DROUGHT!   Yet, you may have heard this phrase before: What you focus on, GROWS. Which got me thinking awhile back, “Do we really want DROUGHT to… [Read More]

I wish I’d reached out

This past weekend, my husband received a phone call that his college roommate died. He died in his sleep (circumstances undetermined yet) but he was just 54 years old. He left his wife and his 14-year-old autistic son. As I listened to my husband express how he felt, we both remembered that ‘Ron’ was the type… [Read More]

How Shame Leads Us To Love

Recently, I experienced one of those moments you just don’t forget. I did something I thought was best, someone else got upset about it, and nothing played out as I’d intended. I felt really badly. Then, on top of it, someone completely not involved in the situation reprimanded me for what I’d done.   At the time, I… [Read More]


There’s a beautiful quote by Rumi that says, As 2015 begins, this quote seems appropriate. In my Authentic Health ecourse, I encourage you to identify your vision. Your vision allows you to feel the stronger pull toward a life you truly love. But, how many of us have a clear vision?  Have you written out… [Read More]

Reflections on Love

Recently I was reading a book by James van Praagh called Healing Grief. In it, he shared the story of a magnificent older couple who met in high school and spent the rest of their lives together. They were married 52 years before the husband died. When Buddy came through in James’ reading, his love… [Read More]

Are you listening to your soul or your ego?

I was talking to a friend recently…well, we were messaging on Facebook, but that counts as talking these days, doesn’t it? And the topic of the ego came up. I was joking around with him that he had ‘liked’ a picture of me and it was such a bad picture that I was a bit… [Read More]

Why do I feel scared?

It happens to everybody. That feeling creeps in and it’s like an inky black orchestra, spilling in from the sides of the stage, to fill the very same seats they’ve always occupied. They settle themselves in, yet there’s no audience. There’s no need for them to be there. They want to play though, and they… [Read More]
