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…

Tune #52 – Might Not Like Me

Last week was challenging. I had an aha moment last Tuesday night, that I did not give the full space it needed to breathe. I woke up the next day to a new aha moment, which demanded immediate attention and expression. My Wednesday was spent being gentle to myself, slowing down and taking it easy. In school, I learned…

Tune Tuesday #51 – By the Way, I Forgive You

“By the Way, I Forgive You” this line, from the song Every Time I Hear That Song by Brandi Carlile, echoed in my mind immediately after I first heard the song. There is something about her voice, coupled with the melody and the lyrics that sounds so familiar. In fact, when I first heard the song, I…

Tune Tuesday #50 – Yellow

It’s Tuesday! I have a song and a beautiful story to go with it. This song came into my life when I was in college. The band was popular at the time, but I didn’t listen to them or know who they were until a friend them introduced to me. She loved this band so…

Tune Tuesday #48 – No One Needs To Know

Love is cleaning and clearing my vision and perception. When I open myself up to any meditation the wisdom will continue to shows, even when I am not seated in meditation. Today’s Tune is one of my favorite songs from when I was a teenager. When I heard the song back then, it sounded like she…

Tune #40 – Oh!

“Nothing in my life has changed this year with the exception of [one thing].” My friend told me as we caught up last week. Even though I started the conversation, I deliberately did not share any or all my good news. I did not tell her I was the happiest I have ever been, that…

Tune #39 – Hope Will Lead Us On

“[This song] made me think of you and your journey,” brother Teddy texted me one afternoon in February.  He sent a link to the song, “Hope Will Lead Us On,” by the Barlow Girl. When I received that text that day, the timing was perfect. I never visited nor did I have a desire to visit Las Vegas prior…

Tune Tuesday #35 – Do your friendships raise you up?

“I’ve never told anyone this before.” “My friends and I never talk about these things.” I’ve been thinking a lot about friendships lately. I am someone people call on to seek council, support or guidance. Since I can remember I have always looked for like minded people and always choose to be surrounded by people I felt comfortable…

Tune Tuesday #34 – Contemplating Life

Death has been circling me lately. Like my meditation on love, focus on my health and habits, lessons on energy and series that I have written in relation to the gifts of breakups, death wants to be seen and heard too. I am not a morbid person and I do not bring this topic up…

Tune Tuesday #31 – The Bully Within

I remember when I was a kid, bullies existed, but not in the numbers that they exist today. In the digital age, the stretch of bullying has extended past the classroom and school and gone into the individual homes of a child. Unlike previous generations, who had a safe haven at home; kids and teens…

Tune Tuesday #30 – Heart of Gold

My heart is hurting. I do not want to write about today’s topic. Deep sigh. This is where my heart is … hurting. I have to follow it, honor it and let it speak. I ran into an ex this weekend. I met him a year ago. I remember when we first met. As I…

Tune Tuesday #26 – Seeking Mr. Right

Today’s song jumped out at me… …and it feels like the nagging little sister that wants attention. When I had the idea to meditate on love, this song was the first that came to mind. I planned to write about this song later, but I feel guided to write about it now. I honestly don’t…

Tune Tuesday #19 – What the World Needs Now

Home is distinctly different each time I visit, because my intentions are different. I came home this weekend to be with my sister aka the doc student and her baby for Halloween and so I could rest. Her daughter is her first child and the first grand child and niece to our family. I am…
