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 […]

Creativity in the time of COVID-19: Why be creative only in times of crisis?

Creativity in the time of COVID-19: Why be creative only in times of crisis?


Dearest readers, I celebrated (in my own way) my 53rd birthday this April 4th. 4/4/2020 is said to be the day of perfect balance in the year of perfect balance. Although the world seems chaotic these days, we are clearly shifting in the physical or most dense areas of life on Earth to a new […]

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 […]

Soul contracts and “bad relationships”

Soul contracts and “bad relationships”


Dearest readers, We have all been conditioned to feel as if we are either lucky or unlucky in love, but I personally believe that luck has nothing to do with how our relationships turn out. Nor, most likely, does love have much to do with what we call romantic encounters either! What’s love got to […]

Healing from image addiction

Healing from image addiction


Dearest readers, As we move deeper into the ascension process, awakening from thousands of years of trauma, mind control, psychic attacks, and inter-generational familial and institutional emotional, mental, and physical abuse and neglect, it is time to take stock. All human beings across the planet are deeply wounded on multiple levels and dimensions. It is […]

Women and self-love

Women and self-love


Dearest readers, Why is it so easy to love a dog, a cat, a flower, even a dress, a tree but so hard to love yourself? Why are humans so hard to love? Women always talk about looking for love, but love is not something that exists outside of self. The nature of reality is […]

Remedies for loneliness: the importance of sharing and intimacy

Remedies for loneliness: the importance of sharing and intimacy


Dearest readers, An unforeseen and preventable tragedy recently occurred in my work place. One of my younger coworkers, M. (aged 27) took his own life during the holiday break. He was a quiet young man. Respectful, thoughtful, intelligent. A model employee who was always on time and who played by the rules. His college major […]

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 […]

Delighted! Signs the collective is moving to service to others ethic


  Dearest readers, I am always looking out for clues and definite signs that our shared reality is shifting from a service-to-self philosophy based on greed, separation, and lack to one that is expansive, holistic, conceptual, compassionate, and generous.  In this nascent reality that we are all evolving into and building together, all people, animals, […]

From puppets to people: remembering our humanity


  Dearest readers, While most broadcast “news” is designed to trigger fear, to divide people against each other, to keep us obedient and passive, and to conceal the truth, occasionally nuggets of truthful information do slip through the control agenda. I am persuaded that it is useless and even counter-productive to fight “against” the system. […]

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for: the new age of personal responsibility

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for: the new age of personal responsibility


Dearest readers, Life is but a dream. My focus in the new paradigm, as we collectively move into a higher level of consciousness, is to create a dream, that is a life, that I enjoy. No one is coming to save us. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We came, we incarnated, to […]

It would be an honor: Donald Trump, Kim Jong-Un, and the Higher Self


  Dearest readers, I rarely watch TV these days, but I happened to be sitting in a Moe’s Southwest Grill restaurant, whose screens featured CNN broadcasts. While I couldn’t hear the sound track, headlines paraded across the screens with the words: It would be an “honor”. The word honor was surrounded by ironic parentheses, it […]

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 […]

Heart coherence: taking responsibility for the power of love


  Dear readers, We have the privilege today of living in the most crucial time in human history. Humanity has finally reached a critical mass of heart consciousness – enough to expose the corruption and forces of darkness which have been used to control and manipulate human beings, sustaining chaos, fear, and allowing the majority […]

Global softening & the feminization of America


Dear readers, You may be wondering how America is becoming more nurturing and compassionate all while having just elected an authoritarian pseudo populist right-wing president in Donald Trump. While the intention of this post is to discuss a global shift in consciousness towards balance and a more feminine and cooperative view of life and society, […]

In search of: adult human being


Dear readers, I have long been an admirer of the work of Carl Gustav Jung, the founder of depth psychology. He understood and defined the collective unconscious, and he clearly explained how themes and archetypes of human behaviors are shared by peoples and cultures all over the world. He also understood that all  human beings […]

Turn on the light!


Hello dear reader, Sometimes the world seems to be filled with darkness, fear, chaos, and corruption. We look around ourselves, and our news reports are often grim. It would seem that we cannot trust our fellow man. People are constantly trying to take advantage of one another or harm others for no apparently good reason. […]

Who has the power to make America great again? You do!


Dear readers, You and I have great and powerful voices. Our voices are a bit rusty from disuse. But we are preparing to speak again, and as we do, the change we will see and the energy and passion this creates, will be inspiring. Today, we are beginning to see this beautiful outgrowth from the negative […]

Feeling superior: antidote to feeling vulnerable?


Hello readers, People who value compassion are generally people who realize that life is a struggle for most of us. Some of us battle with health issues. Others struggle with domestic violence, poverty, drug or alcohol addiction, unemployment. There is no life that unfolds without challenge. When we look inside our own hearts and accept […]
