Releasing Unworthiness

A few weeks ago, I wrote about starting a new year with the birth of a personal mantra “Do it for Love.” Since then, to keep Love front and center in my consciousness as my purpose, I journal nearly every morning on the following question, “What does Love want me to know today?” It’s my […]

Farewell, Independence!

Do you find yourself saying “no” to offers of help from others, because you can handle it all on your own no matter what? Do you feel that you can’t ever ask for support even when you could really use some, because you don’t want to be a burden to others or appear weak or […]

Time to Die

I’m not suicidal or homicidal, so no one panics! Yes, it’s time to die, but not in the way you think. Rather, the message is in the following: The “old” you has to die so that the “new” you can be born. The first act of creation is always destruction. ~ Katherine Woodward Thomas The […]

Let Go and Let Soul

A few weeks ago, I wrote about decluttering my house and how the energy flow in our outer world matches that of our inner state. Boy, did the purging in my physical space set in motion the corresponding need to rearrange my emotional world! There has been some heavy-duty processing over the past weeks, including […]

In the Waiting

All this week, what’s front and center in my consciousness is the contemplation of releasing the need to know and to control events (a.k.a. surrendering) and honoring the mystery of how life unfolds in its own time and in its own way. This is partly a continuation of my ruminations from last week about embracing […]

Light and Dark

I’m choosing to rise above my discomfort and share this post here—instead of leaving it in my private journal—for the sole intention of serving […]

Make Space

I spent many hours this past Sunday decluttering my home. It may not sound like a big deal to those of you who are meticulous housekeepers, but it was a huge project to me. After all, as an abstract person who’s much happier being immersed in the world of thoughts, ideas and deeper meanings of […]

Mirror, Mirror

People come into our lives for a reason. The reason may be for the long term, such as in the case of familial bonds, or it may be only for a season. When the season is over, the relationship ends. I always appreciate Wayne Dyer’s satirical remark, “Friends are God’s way of apologizing for our […]

Tapping Your Way to Your Desires

You may or may not have heard of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), which is a tool for physical healing and release of emotions associated with limiting beliefs and other energetic blocks. It has become increasingly known and applied in many areas, including but not limited to career, success, health and relationships. As a case in […]

Power of Forgiveness

When we practice forgiveness, we release judgment of ourselves and others. We allow ourselves to learn to accept those experiences that hurt us. It may take some time in the case of particularly traumatic events—I know this first-hand. However, it is well worth the effort to clear your space of the emotional remnants of the […]
