Art and healing the collective body: reconfiguring controversial public art


Dearest readers, A friend and very talented and compassionate fellow writer recently shared with me the fascinating and horrifying true story of her ancestor, Massachusetts Puritan Hannah Duston (1657-1736). Hannah Duston has been commemorated and was at one time celebrated for her brutal and vengeful acts of scalping and murdering in their sleep 10 Native […]

Soul mirrors: healing emotional wounds through relationship

Soul mirrors: healing emotional wounds through relationship


Dearest readers, I have long been interested in the quest for self-love and the healing of the emotional body. It is so fascinating to me how we attract into our lives the exact mirror of our own emotional state in the people we encounter. If you pay close attention, you will see the patterns. Every […]

Triggered: Healing codependency through the ascension process

Triggered: Healing codependency through the ascension process


  Dearest readers, Do you feel like the number of times that you are emotionally triggered has increased over the last few years, months, even days? If you do, you are not alone. The ascension process is a gradual awakening of the human being, and a transition or healing process as well, taking us from […]

The Wounded Mother and bringing the truth to light: some thoughts for her and for her children

The Wounded Mother and bringing the truth to light: some thoughts for her and for her children


Dearest readers, Today is Mother’s Day in the United States. My mother has refused to speak to me for many years. The last time we exchanged words, she screamed at me over the phone, refusing to go to her own mother’s funeral. That was in April of 2007. I could not find a commercial Mother’s […]

Playing with toys to channel higher self

Playing with toys to channel higher self


Dearest readers, There are many ways to connect to your subconscious mind, intuition, and what New Age teachings call your “higher self”. Today, many people publish YouTube or Facebook videos, blogs, vlogs, and charge money for personal or group sessions to either share channeled information or to assist others in their personal development and awakening […]

Trust, freedom, and power: the price of conditional love

Trust, freedom, and power: the price of conditional love


  Dearest readers, I’ve been musing about belonging and freedom. Naturally, we should be easily able to be part of a family or group and also maintain our individuality. At least it seems simple on the surface. Thousands of years of conditional love have robbed us of our spontaneity, our ability to love self and […]

2018: Integrating the shadow for the collective

2018: Integrating the shadow for the collective


Dearest readers, 2018 is a year where the presence of the shadow in society will be unavoidable. Chaos, violence, crime, people being offended, the eruption of sex scandals, political intrigues, and abuses against people, animals, and the planet will explode exponentially. These eruptions which are already quite visible are increasing so that humanity can integrate […]

Rediscovering innocence

Rediscovering innocence


Dearest readers, An innocent heart is the most powerful state of being. We look with delight into the eyes of a baby, a puppy, a kitten. The light flowing through the eyes of innocence is soft yet bright. Full of wonder, joy, simplicity. There are no shadows, no fear, no intentions other than to enjoy […]

Worlds Apart

Worlds Apart


Hello dear readers, I have been offline for a while. My son just turned 18 and had his first day of classes at the University of Helsinki in Finland today. It has and continues to be a great adventure for both of us! I just returned to the United States after spending nearly two weeks […]

Racism, animal abuse, child abuse, drug abuse: the final gasps of a victim/savior paradigm

Racism, animal abuse, child abuse, drug abuse: the final gasps of a victim/savior paradigm


Dearest readers, My experiences growing up in a highly co-dependent, enmeshed family system where emotional abuse was a normal way of being led me on a path where I did not know how to love myself anymore. I had to learn to remember. The path to remembering, or putting myself back together again, was a […]

On purpose: musings about why we are here

On purpose: musings about why we are here


Dearest readers, You may feel a vague or a more intense urging that there is a specific reason for which you came to live on Earth at this particular time. Many of us want to know: why am I here, and what is my specific purpose? I think about this a lot. There are so […]

Poor me: race, cognitive dissonance, and personal responsibility for all


Dearest readers, Being human is impossibly difficult. It is a challenge we take on voluntarily. At least that is what I believe, and that belief empowers me and gives me hope for all of us. It seems crazy to think that I could have chosen the family I was born into and the circumstances of […]

The power of our emotions


Dearest readers, This is a quote from a Magenta Pixie video that I jotted down because it impressed me so much: “It is the emotion behind intent that produces manifestation.” Human beings are highly emotional beings. The chaos we observe in the world has been created in order to manipulate our emotional bodies and to […]

Humanity in transition: visions of our future


Dearest readers, My faith in humanity is very strong, even though I am a very solitary person by nature. I feel that humanity has deviated from its natural state.  Some say that we collectively chose to experience a state of forgetfulness, victimhood, or to be humbled through suffering because it was an experience we all […]

Creating realities that support joy


Dearest readers, I was just thinking about how we, as human parents, try to extend childhood for our kids. It wasn’t always like this, and in many places it still isn’t. Children work and are even slaves in many places around the world today. But the point I would like to make is this: the […]

Brilliantly blue: a glimpse beyond the veil


Hello dearest readers, During my breaks at work, I walk around the office complex parking lots and buildings, where I encounter the busy lives of squirrels, chipmunks, blue jays, mockingbirds, robins, finches, hawks…as well as lichens, an abundance of moss, holly trees, azaleas, boxwoods, and a variety of other trees. Confession: I talk to the […]

Barefoot and terrified: When did we become afraid of Mother Earth?


Dearest readers, A recent televised evening news broadcast announced the arrest of a woman at a North Carolina daycare center on charges of child abuse for breastfeeding another woman’s baby. When I heard this story, I thought about how fearful and mistrustful we humans are of one another. Especially in America. We are afraid to touch […]

The Stranger & the mirror: How looking inward changes our cultural paradigm towards outsiders


Dear readers, I recently reread Albert Camus’ iconic novel, The Stranger. It struck me as I was reading that Meursault’s detached personality and precise, yet objective truthfulness would probably place him somewhere on the autism spectrum today. As most people know, the bizarre cultural mindset of the time in which the novel is set (1950’s […]

Gentle cleansing for kids


Dear readers, If you are a parent today, then most certainly you worry about how chemicals, plastics, pesticides, fertilizers, heavy metals, xenoestrogens, radioactivity, traces of pharmaceutical drugs in our food, water, air, and soil are affecting your child’s health, well-being, intelligence, behavior, quality of life and potential life span. Whether you live in an urban, […]

A spiritual view on the delicate topic of abortion


Hello readers, In America, there seems to be a never ending debate on abortion. Is it a moral debate? Philosophical? Is it about controlling women’s bodies? Is is about taking control of who controls our population? The reason I want to write about this topic is that I feel that many of the most important […]
