The Human Continuum

I didn’t write this. It is part of a conversation I had with the cousin of someone I am praying for who was shot at The Pulse in Orlando. I’ve posted it here with permission because people need to READ this: Only the human mind invents categories, have to put things on and in little boxes and call it good, and tries to force facts into separated tiny little pigeon-holes. The living world is a continuum in each and every one of its aspects. The sooner we learn this concerning …

Love and Remission

Hate is a cancer. Anger is a cancer. Violent emotions are a cancer. Rejection is a cancer, whether rejection of others or the deeper cancer – rejection of self. They are cancers of the soul.   Whatever shows up in the soul will filter down through the mind and emotions, into the physical.   No wonder there is such an outbreak of cancer in the world.   This was shared with me today, and I must share with you because the truth of it is vibrating deep in my bones. …

The Power of BEing

I was talking with a client this morning (it’s only 7:15 a.m.; I coach globally via Skype) when he broached his agenda. “I would like to focus on… to be more my I AM, to explore love, peace…” As is so often the case, my client couldn’t hear the clarity of what he wanted because he was in the ‘static’ of life. I heard him very clearly, and I told him so. As we focused on his agenda, I held the space of his Divine presence, allowing him to sift …

I Swear

I am intimately familiar with the nuanced flavors of Dial, Zest, Tide, and Palmolive, to name just a few. My mother had used all of them in a vain effort to wash “those dirty words” out of my mouth before the tender age of eight. Even the twenty-mule team of Borax didn’t stand a chance of pulling out the cantankerous roots of my heathen vocabulary. At nineteen, I found myself sitting across the desk from my supervisor in a major retail chain, being lectured on the inappropriateness of a sailor’s …

Callous, Callus, and Me

I firmly believe that people are put into my life for very specific reasons. Some of them are here to help me heal my wounds, others to remind me of them. I know who the re-mind-‘ers are because they rankle like a big, fat sliver under my skin, and they just won’t go away until I deal with the damned wound they keep poking. It so happens that I also believe that our greatest calling is the thing that we struggle with the most. My biggest struggle is with my …

Loving You Back to YOU

It’s true. There is a wonder-full thing that happens as we begin to truly know ourselves, our purpose, our passion, our gifts, our talents, our way, our time. I’ve seen it in my clients. I’ve felt it in myself. I believe this is why empaths respond so well to coaching. As an empath, I was always receiving. As I began to know me, the receiving stopped being so overwhelming. It took me a while to understand why. I was taught to not be “me.” I had to pick up the …

Judging Money

I’m completely fascinated by the myriad reactions to the current PowerBall jackpot. Last week’s drawing was worth $900 million dollars when I last checked. There was a terrific buzz that it could go over a billion. With no winner, it did. As of the current moment, the jackpot for tonight’s drawing stands at $1.5 BILLION (source: www.flalottery.com). I suspect it will edge even higher as ticket sales soar in the hours before the drawing goes off. So what? So… these opportunities inspire people to dream, ideate, form opinions, and talk… a …

Self Care as the Highest Form of Care

I was appalled when I was introduced to this concept. How on Earth could anyone claim that putting myself before others was a good thing, let alone the MOST CARING thing I could do!?! The concept defied everything I had been taught for as long as I could remember. I would have rejected it out of hand, had I not already agreed to abide by the Standards of Presence during the course I was taking. It wasn’t easy, but I stifled my reaction and listened to what the teachers had …

Why 50 is Absolutely the Best Age of My Life (so far)

I was having a conversation with a friend of mine this evening. She was expressing her sympathy over an unresolved situation in my life. As I assured her that it was actually fine, I realized the full possibility that this situation existed solely so I could have this realization. 50, as the cliche says, is FABULOUS!!! There is no biological clock in my life. The fact that it was surgically silenced five years ago is irrelevant. I have no emotional yearning to have children in my life. Apparently, 50 is that …

Cascade of Shift

Life suddenly got a lot simpler since we got back from vacation. New experiences have a magical way of delivering new perspectives, even when I think new perspectives aren’t needed. Spending 11 days with a hormonal 17-year-old gave me new eyes for my own drama. Several times during our vacation, he went to sleep hating me and woke up loving me, or vice versa. The last morning of the trip, he woke up hating me (it had started the night before) and continued hating me until we got on the …
