Life is 10% what happens to you, and 90% how you respond to it.

“How’s March 17th?” the doctor asked. “Saint Patrick’s Day – I’ll call that a lucky day,” he added, pointing to his red hair. Nineteen years ago today on Saint Patrick’s Day my son had his cleft palate repair at Mott Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It was one of the worst days of my life, having [Read More…]

Soul Sick: Sleep Doesn’t Help When Your Soul is Tired

Are you SOUL sick? Soul sickness can cause anxiety, depression, exhaustion, and an array of negative energy. It can cause insecurity and make you doubt your life path, make you wonder if throwing in the towel is easier, and second guess your sacrifices. Sleep is disruptive, dreams are scary, and life feels harder than it should. [Read More…]

A Full Moon and a Fragile Soul

Are you feeling the crazy energy yet? We welcome in the Full Moon on Sunday in the astrological sign of Virgo, which can make many feel a bit unsettled and super emotional. Virgo projects a powerful energy of self-doubt in all aspects of life, which can make the most confident person want to pull the blankets over their head.

Vintage Goods and Ghosts Part 2

Bobbie wore her hair brown hair pinned back. Her charcoal colored dress was loose fitting around her petite structure and she looked even more drowned out by the black cardigan sweater belted around her waist. READ PART 1 HERE. “Do you know where you are?” I asked her. Her hazel eyes wide, and a bit [Read More…]

Vintage Goods and Ghosts

I love the vintage (farmhouse) design, but being an empath I have a hard time going to salvage and antique shops. Just entering a shop that holds items owned by others, attending estate sales or yard sales would leave me overwhelmed and sad. There have been times, even before walking in the door, I’ve felt [Read More…]

The Shack Movie Review

I read The Shack in just one sitting soon after it was released. With mystery, spirituality, and philosophy, it was a book that made me ponder life and the afterlife well after I finished the last chapter.  They say never to judge a movie by the book, so I went into the movie with an [Read More…]

Anxious Energy

The energy over the last couple days has been interesting. If you’ve felt a sudden sadness and self disappointment then you may be more aligned with this energy. If you’ve been feeling angry, feeling that you need to get moving in your destined destination, feeling anxious and impatient over where you are and where you [Read More…]

Love From Heaven

Today is my mom’s birthday. Or should I say was her birthdate since she is in Heaven now.  We would be celebrating her 80 earthly years, but instead we seem to focus more on the 11 heaven years more intently. I, however, do believe that they celebrate their birthdate and their crossing-date, equally. Although we [Read More…]

March Oracle

March is a peculiar month, with some days warm like spring, and other days cold like winter – the sun shines warm and the wind blows cold. The shades of winter begin to fade and the colors of spring begin to bloom. It’s too soon to put away the sweaters, and too soon to bring [Read More…]

I’m Expecting and I Need a Village

They say that it takes a village to raise a child, and being a mom I believe in that. It’s also said that authors often convey the same emotional feeling of birthing and raising a child to birthing a book and marketing it. This August, with Llewellyn Publications, I welcome Messages From a Wonderful Afterlife: [Read More…]
