Dear Cinderella…

A couple weeks ago my husband and friends decided to embrace our inner child by seeing Cinderella. I admit that my husband moaned a bit, but I convinced him after showing him that the movie theater by us had reclining seats and if anything he’d get in a comfortable nap (he can sleep anywhere)! I really hadn't anticipated a so-called kid’s movie would affect me as much as it did, and I sat there, with tears streaming down my face, taking in the many lessons that a simple movie offered.I’ve hea … [Read More...]

March On – Nothing Here to See

It was a couple weeks ago and we had received a good few inches of snow on top of the already several inches on the ground. I had to grab a couple things from the grocery store and ran out for just a minute. As I parked, I saw a lady tumble down in the median, a top a bunch of snow (where there would normally be grass or woodchips). And she just sat there. Concerned that she hurt herself, I rushed over to ask if I could help and found she was half laughing and half crying.“Pretty sure I t … [Read More...]

Smudging Away Negative Energy

Smudging with sage (I prefer white sage) is a simple and powerful way in which to remove negative energy from the area. Place a few leaves in a fire proof container or a albacore shell, and light the leaves or light the bundle. The flame should go out in a short time and the sage will begin to smolder. Fan the smoke with your hand or feather. Say a blessing of protection, or prayer, as you walk around. Fan the smoke around you imagining it passing through you. It flows through you drawing out … [Read More...]

We All Need Help Sometime

The little girl was about three years old and was screaming in the middle of Target at her mother, who looked to be humiliated. Her face blushed, not from the cold, but from her daughter’s tantrum.“I can do it myself. I don’t need any help!” the small, but powerhouse girl screamed, whipping her brown hair around with attitude. The girl’s coat was on upside down and inside out and she was having a problem getting it off in order to fix it. Her mom was simply trying to pull it off of her. But … [Read More...]

Snowed In

Instead of attending a bustling Super Bowl party I sat on my couch next to the flickering fireplace that was making haunting shadows on my cheerfully painted yellow walls.  Sipping a cup of hot tea, I watched the snow fall fast and furious and sighed in relief that my son’s job called him off, which meant there was nowhere to go. Since I had earlier made ribs, sloppy Joe’s and a potato casserole, I also had nothing pressing to do; a rarity in my house, a rarity in my life. Just as the snow storm … [Read More...]

9 Years

Today, January 30th, marks nine years since my mom crossed over. I still remember receiving that early morning phone call to get to the hospital. I had just pulled into the driveway of my then job. I ran up three flights of stairs to tell my supervisor that I was needed at the hospital, only to run down the three flights and back to my car. The drive to the hospital was mostly a blur. I remember speeding down Michigan Avenue to Dearborn. I remember calling my boyfriend (now my husband) and … [Read More...]

Today I Feel Positively….

Words have a strong effect on us. Words that people say to us, words that we say to ourselves – they all have an impact on our life, both positively and negatively. In fact Japanese scientist, Masaru Emoto, conducted an experiment on this same thing. Dr. Emoto poured pure water into vials labeled with negative phrases like "I hate you" or "fear” along with polluted water and added positive words like “love” and “peace” and froze them. After 24 hours, the water that had the negative words, put pur … [Read More...]


Every year at this time we are inundated with "Be a New You for the New Year" messages on television and radio. When the calendar switches to the new year life doesn't magically shift, only we can shift it. And it doesn't have happen at the beginning of a new year either, every day is a new beginning that offers us new opportunities, if we so choose.I have a tradition where on NYE I look back over my new moon wishes and my full moon soul work that I wrote out for the entire year. I look at … [Read More...]
