Glancing at the clock may cause us to look again sometimes, especially when we notice that we’ve caught it at the same time over and over again. Maybe we see the same number pattern echoed everywhere we look—whether on license plates or appliances—over a period of…

My 'Finding Inspiration' series was written out of a need that comes up in my practice, most often in Spring and Fall. I feel we all need a bit of encouragement and enlightenment now and then to help us move forward. Finding motivation through inspiration can be the spark which sets you on your way!
What can be more inspiring than the brilliant purple hue of amethyst, the rich orange of carnelian or the deep pink of rhodochrosite?…

When we schedule too much in our lives trying to meet our obligations, we only end up draining our energy.

Many times, the obligations are actually fun and fulfilling, and we want to be there. At the same time, we all sometimes experience resistance to meeting these obligations, especially when they pile up all at…

Spring is here. The best time to take a seasonal check up of our health on all levels; mentally, physically and spiritually. One of the best ways to do this is with a simple detoxification of the "soul".
Detoxification is a process that occurs within our bodies on a continual basis. When we drink too much coffee, have cigarettes, drink too much alcohol or do recreational drugs these substances are transformed by the liver to a more harmless substance that can be excreted in the…

In a world of harshness, it is time to soften and expand how we go about our life.
In order to get what we want in life, we have to be willing to receive it when it appears, and in order to do that we have to be open. Often we go through life with defenses we developed early on in order to protect ourselves. These defenses act as barriers, walls we needed at one time to feel safe, but that now serve to shut out desired influences, like…Continue

Spring is the time of creativity! With the resurgence of warmer weather, more light and a breath of newness, creativity is stimulation.
Living is an act of creativity. Not just being an artist, writer, painter but the sheer act of living is a creative force that we often do not acknowledge. Living consciously and with awareness is an act of even deeper creativity. On many levels, creativity is an inner
process: what you dream, imagine,…

There are 12 months in the Gregorian calendar (the current standard calendar for most of the world). A common year consists of 365 calendar days as opposed to a leap year which has 366 days. A Leap Day is added nearly every 4 years to the Gregorian calendar. However, a Leap Day is not added EVERY 4 years - 3 criteria need to be met. For most Leap Years, a popular children's rhyme holds true:
Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November;

It’s Groundhog Day and the furry, kind-of-cute groundhog is in the news.
Groundhogs clearly aren’t related to pigs or hogs—so what exactly are they?
The groundhog (also known as a woodchuck or Eastern Marmot) is actually a large, ground-dwelling rodent and is part of family of ground squirrels known as marmots.
Groundhogs are lowland creatures and are common in the northeastern and central United States, found as far north as eastern…
