The Secret - Inside and Outside

Charlie, the love dog
We have heard  so much about "the Secret" It seems that  all knowledge is rooted in that philosophy.
We got hooked into thinking  that if we truly believed that we could  have that fortune/ car/ life and  then it would happen. As a result, so many people became disenfranchised with Spirit/the Universe/ God because it did not happen for them. Other folks became such strong  believers that it was challenging to talk to them. The universe was good if you believed it to be good and that was that. If I don't focus on the dark energy, it will not find me. Ha...

Epiphany - Integrating the Practical and the Spiritual

We are struggling collectively and individually right now. We are often angry and/or in denial of what is happening on the national and international stages. We  have tried  many paths to enlightenment and  eventually we  become discouraged by them. We meditate, do yoga, work with Shamans, attend Church, go to psychotherapy, run, walk, eat organically...... Then we stop everything and say that none of it worked.

100th turtle story

Gopher Tortoise waiting in Venice, Florida
Once upon a time, there was a tortoise  who was called She who Sees.  She was  bigger than the other tortoises and knew that she was annoying at times. She did not want to be but couldn't help herself.

One Step At A Time

Wood Stork
I have been living in Sarasota for about a month and  my life has changed. This is an understatement for how I truly feel. It has changed so much that I feel disoriented. The people, the air, nature, the water, the roads, the sky.... Everything has shifted.

Noticing Everything Without Attaching to Anything

white egret walking towards me on my walk
It is quite a challenge to notice everything and not attach each event. The attaching takes time and is seriously energy draining. The noticing is much easier and there is so much to see these days. There is so much  charged information flying in to our awareness and it is mostly of a quite extremely dark nature.

Sarasota Living under a full Moon

Sarasota Moon
I have been living in Sarasota, FL for  about 10 days and it is a paradigm changer. Everything that I have known is turned around. Instead of getting ready for colder days, I am enjoying the 80 degree sunny weather.  Instead of searching for things to do, it is now lovely to have  choices. Instead of gearing up for the slowing down of life, life continues to unfold  at great speed in amazing ways.

Sarasota Dreaming- Energetic Home

Venice Beach Drum Circle; Reaching out to the Universe
When I moved to Northern California in the 70's, I felt like I had come home. I had moved from Rockland County, NY and it was as if I had found my peaceful place.

Dreaming of a GoldFinch

GoldFinch Remembers
Goldfinch symbolizes making the best of the journey. They boogie from place to place riding on the air currents and enjoy wherever they are at time.

Seeing Fairies

Do you know that there are fairies or elementals wherever we are. It simply takes looking for them.

My Wish Is My Command

My wish is my command!!
Did you know that there is not one single entry that I could find for the link to  "My Wish Is My Command".

You can search the internet for anything and everything and there are always listings.  Its funny that this statement doesn't exist in the search engines.  And with these powerful words, we become the originators or creators of our lives.

Have you been feeling that the present is all we have,
the past is no long retrievable and the future has not yet appeared?  It sounds like the preface to The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. I remember reading this book years ago and nodding my head as though I understood what he was saying. Yes, of  course, I must be in the present to change my life, access spiritual enlightenment etc. Truthfully, I only had a mental understanding of what he was talking about. Ahhhh now, it is different.

Beaver Creativity

As I was walking along the canal yesterday, I saw a beaver swimming upstream for several minutes and then he disappeared into the water. Beavers can swim underwater for 15 minutes at a time.
When a beaver shows up, it means that it is time to create new structures in our lives while balancing our connections to  old and new family and friends. Truly significant for my life right now.

Chopping Carrots and Freedom

fox stillness

As human "doings", we are always on the move. How many times, have you looked back on your day and forgotten what you have done. Or you have come up with a long list of things that you can check off but do not feel very good about your accomplishments.   We busily speed through our day and then what?  We simply look forward to another exhausting day.....

Multiple Personalities

Last night, I had a dream that I had grown a beard. It was a rather dark stubbly affair and I was not happy about it. I kept asking what was the reason for the beard and I heard that things would calm down and I would know.

This morning, I received a weekly email blast from Rob Brezny, the astrological forecaster. In the write up for Aries, he said the following."Upcoming adventures might make you more manly if you are a woman".

The Warrior
"Constantly challenging one self. Taking every single opportunity without regrets. Learning, developing and seeing beauty in all kinds of moments in life no matter how big/small they may be. Knowing what you're worth, treating yourself like you deserve to be treated. Simply, just being you and being brave. Like a lion you know, fight for what you stand for. A Lionheart would never give up on its dreams."

Fox Medicine

Foxy Kenning
At about 6:30AM on Sunday, I looked in the yard and saw three cat like shapes  with very long tails prancing around.  After, I put my glasses on, I realized that they were kits or young foxes. They were playful and ran around the yard for about 15 minutes.This was not the first time that I had seen foxes in the yard.   They have been coming and going for about two weeks. The empty house next door has   an overgrown yard next door which is an awesome home and playground for animals. where they are not disturbed.

Slow Down We Move Too Fast

 Pink Eyes
When we slow down enough that we can really see what is happening, everything changes.
We notice things that are subtle and meaningful at the same time.
We notice a big blue heron that is sitting and waiting

Foxy Awareness

Sometimes, I  hear messages skittering across my consciousness and ignore them.  At times,  I dream about  an important thought or feeling and yet there are so many of them. It is challenging to be aware.

Real Time

We are living during a time of constant  rapid change.
 We are being asked to be present every moment.
We can no longer seek out other people to tell us what to do.

Everything Is Real

Swimming for Life
I find that  words and the images are inadequate to express what I would like to say. Everywhere that I look, we are facing challenges to what we thought was the forever truth..
I look at  Presidential Candidate, Bernie Sanders and he keeps standing strong although many folks are telling him that he should step aside. He knows that the time is not right yet. He still has more to say.....

What's Real?

I feel that it is easier to communicate using images today.  Words seem to get lost, are inaccurate, or they simply don't work. They are over used. Yet we continue to rely heavily on them to communicate our feelings. In my sessions with clients, I have been using  the symbolism of animals, numbers,  natural archetypes etc to communicate what is being experienced. They  are  more authentic and direct.

Miracles From Heaven

Parrot Love
 It is a rather gray Saturday in March and I just returned from seeing the newest Jennifer Garner movie, titled Miracles from Heaven. It is billed as a true story and it was very moving.  I cried as I frequently do at movies that touch my heart. I can see why Jennifer Garner was so attracted to starring  in the movie

Seeing is Believing

Natural Art
I went walking in Colonial Park today and saw this amazing scene on a fallen log.  I had no idea that termites could create cowboy scenes......... Or maybe it was fairies....

Mermaids, Fairies, Gnomes, Leprechauns, and unicorns

Frog Princess
I have been finding joy in small ways.  I just finished reading a book titled "The Mermaid Singing" by Lisa Carey. The author beautifully described the very difficult and complicated relationships of three generations of Irish women and their connections to mermaid energy.

Pixie Passed Today, Our 14 1/2 year old Golden Friend

Pixie died peacefully today after an amazing life with our family. She was adopted at age 2 when this photo was taken. She was found after wandering the highways of Florida for several months. She was transferred to a golden adoption center in Pa and we were the lucky ones that brought her home.

Chaos, Change, a groundhog and Maggie Smith

I just saw the movie, The Lady in the Van with Maggie Smith and it was quite good.  I had been looking forward to seeing it since last fall when I saw the first trailer.  It was worth the wait. The movie was a great example of how a crisis and chaos can  happen and how we are forever marked by it.  This is what happened in the movie and certainly what happens in life.  However, we can often control the outcome by holding ourselves as observers and reducing our emotional reactions.

Peaks into Nature

tree spirit

I received a great response to my last blog post titled Beautiful Pain. I would like to take this idea one step further and suggest that Presence opens us up to new enchanting
worlds that we have always wanted to visit.  When we stay in the moment, we open up the doorway to seeing fairies, gnomes and even  more of Nature's beauty.......

Beautiful Pain

ice angel
What if we can no longer ignore the pain in our bodies. What if our bodies have information for us that we simply need  to know. There is so much over use of prescribed and street drugs because people cannot stand the pain in their bodies. Are you ready to make a radical change?

Rejection Is Our Protection

Hedgehog Wisdom
Our lives  are pretty uncomfortable right now. The weather is getting colder and snowier,  the presidential debates are more strident, lots of folks are sick with a variety of ailments and work for many is unfulfilling. Or perhaps we  thought that some thing special would happen and it doesn't.  We try our best to get out of the discomfort by figuring out things to do differently.
