Our True Nature

It’s Friday! A lot has changed in four short days. At the beginning of the week I felt the effects of stress in my body and my ability to focus. It’s been hard for me to wrap my head around how swiftly things have changed. I went to the store on Wednesday and forgot to…

I am Thankful for: Hope

Hello! I just stumbled upon a video that touched my heart. The video was created by the Chino Hills High School choir. They had a performance this week that was canceled. However, the students did the next best thing, they came together digitally to sing for a larger audience. The song they sang could not…

Wisdom Wednesday #89 – What We Care About

It’s 1AM in my part of the world as I write this post. This is the bit of quiet time that I get to unwind from the day with this new, temporary normal. I don’t have anxiety, but I have been more anxious in the past few days. There are so many variables. There is…

Tune Tuesday #54 – Shower the People

Happy Tuesday! I hope this day finds you healthy and in good spirits. I have been thinking about you and the overall community a lot lately. In the states, we are experiencing our first few days of social distancing. While people around the world have been experiencing it a few weeks to a full month…

Mindful Monday #187 – Breathe

Happy Monday! I understand it can be challenging to find happiness on a Monday such as this in the middle of a pandemic. The life that we have grown accustomed to is disrupted by COVID -19 which has brought about a lot of uncertainty, events postponed or canceled, businesses temporarily closed, some of us working…

What Needs to Be Felt

My sisters best friend lost her mother this week. It was quite sudden. At the end of last week I learned her mother was in the hospital with an infection. On Tuesday I learned she had passed. Loosing someone at anytime of your life is never easy, regardless of age. There is never a good…

Awakened In Loving Gratitude

I am wide awake. I facilitated a night time Yoga Nidra for my sister (the doc student) on Tuesday, before she left town to go back home. After the Nidra, I gave myself time to wind down and reset before I went to sleep. As I laid down to sleep thoughts circled my mind. I…

The Union of Love and Peace

I am in a current month long Meditation on Love and Peace. Since the month began, I have been sharing a wisdom a day on Instagram. Since February 2015, I have dedicated the month to writing about Love. I first wrote a series of posts about different types of love, which evolved into a weekly…

I am Thankful for: Ordinary Moments

This time of my life feels like true Technicolor. Dorothy left Kansas and stepped into colorful, vibrant OZ.  That is the best description I have that describes how rich, flavorful and vibrant this season is for me. I have not appreciated this season in the way I appreciate it now. OZ was a dream for…

I am Thankful for: My Return

It’s past midnight on Wednesday night, yet I am wide awake. I just wrapped a six-week, eye-opening course about the Hero’s Journey. This class was one of the best classes I have taken in my history of education, workshops, conferences and spiritual classes. As a mindfulness blogger I am committed to speaking my truth and…

I’m Thankful For: My Thanksgiving Blessing

This year has been full. I have had a lot of insights, realizations, deeper understandings and perspective shifts. All that I have studied and worked toward, for the past five years, is coming together. For the first time, I am able to see how I have grown as a speaker and facilitator and as an…

Tune #53 – Beauty Before Me

I hosted a Friendsgiving and Gratitude Circle at the top of the month. I have been hosting a monthly storytelling circle (Council Practice), since September of 2017. It is my goal to build community and create space for people to practice authentic communication and authentic relating. Our circle this month was amazing. I have always…
