Accidental Manifestations

All kinds of sucky things manifest when I’m resisting. Monday morning, I manifested a severe tire leak. Normally, I would have simply taken the spare vehicle, but I apparently manifested the heater core leaking radiator fluid into the passenger compartment of said (newly repaired) spare vehicle. I don’t care for the things I manifest when when I’m not being honest with myself about priorities. They’re often expensive and highly inconvenient. I’m sure these things would look like coincidence to some, but situations of this ilk occur so frequently in my …

Authentic Connecting – a journey

“Creating a life that is full of authentic connecting is a lot like growing a garden. It takes intention in the beginning.

I am committed to seeing the positive in everything. It …

You may feel a little sting

I know better than to discuss certain things on my blog. Religion and politics are strictly off-limits in peaceful conversation. HOWEVER, I’m making an exception because I truly believe this information needs to be shared. Given my recent surgeries, I’ve had a lot of contact with the medical community in the past few months. Of interest today is the information I received from a very reliable source (a well-educated doctor who also happens to be a Democrat) that there will be no two-tier health system under Obamacare. If you’re not …
