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 […]

Beyond the shadow of doubt: transformation of beliefs

Beyond the shadow of doubt: transformation of beliefs


Dearest readers, Doubt is an integral part of the human experience. When we choose to incarnate on Earth, we choose separation from our true identity, which is love, unity, peace, and joy. We choose victimhood, or else we choose to be tyrants. We come to Earth to experience pain, fear, lack, and duality. Why in […]

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 […]

Survival or success?


Dear readers, Some of you may know, and some may not yet have noticed, but today we are living in a very special time of great change and great opportunities for self-mastery. Until very recently, survival was the best we could muster, and only few were either handed an artificial form of success based on […]

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 […]

Short Stay (a poem)


a handful of acorns like growths strangle my throat the potential for an extended stay in the home of my flesh Could you be the end of my days? Fear grips my insides with the insights of life and loss you’ve no mouth yet yet you whisper don’t worry I’ve come to be with you […]

My life will get better: on hope and disappointment


Hello readers, Good parents know how to teach their kids to deal with frustration and disappointment, because not to do so is unkind to children. Parents who don’t delay gratification and who rush to fulfill their children’s needs and desires even before they have the ability or luxury to feel a little discomfort, are truly […]

The Multi-layered Life: thoughts on the question of eternity


Hello readers, Reincarnation and the life of the soul beyond the body are concepts that interest me.  Really, the nature of life and reality – why things are the way they are…these questions intrigue me deeply.  Collectively, our imaginations continually shift and modify the world in which we live, and probably beyond that.  If the […]

Emptying my bucket: Thoughts on bucket lists


Hello readers, As I get older, I tend to think increasingly about the meaning of my life, my contributions, but also the shape and form of my story.  Does it mean anything to accomplish goals?  What if being were more important than doing?  The older I get, to sum it up, the less I am […]

Sowing the seeds for a more compassionate humanity


Hello readers, Some of us feel as if we don’t come from or belong on this planet.  It is as if we are visitors longing for a home and society much different from the model in which we have uncomfortably become accustomed to living.  Does this sensation, of being an alien, yet having a full and […]

Krill: A Short Story


The beach was littered with glass eyes.  Not the kind that fit into the orbits of human skulls, but rather the type that look like buttons adorning the faces of ragdolls.  Seagulls homed in on the sandy strip, lunging for tender tidbits of raw flesh, hoping to satisfy their cavernous appetites. The air was calm […]

Writing Off Conditioning: How to Let Go of the Dream Your Parents Created for You


Hello readers, I read a lot about human nature and experience, because I have always wanted to understand why people do what they do.  We have all been conditioned by our families, by the culture and society in which we live, to be a certain self.  And, for the most part, we identify with that […]

What is the “Matter” with the Way We Choose to See the “Physical” World? Some thoughts on body, health, mind, and matter


Hello readers, From what I glean about recent findings in quantum physics (an area which always interests artists, innovators, and free thinkers of all areas of expertise) – the world exists only in our minds.  As each particle is named and discovered, we end up realizing that there is endless space inside everything.  Basically, the […]

Some Thoughts on the Power of Fear and Negativity…and How to Go Beyond


Hello readers, While I was rinsing some beans at my kitchen sink the other evening, the thought came into my mind that the many stressful challenges and “negative” experiences that have peppered my life were expressly chosen by me before coming to this Earth and this lifetime for a specific purpose.  I often wonder why […]

Starving or Feeding the Feminine from within: Some thoughts on eating disorders and spiritual purpose


Hello readers, Yesterday, I read a blog post by Elena on thecitizensoffashion.com (see link below) about how young women are promoting and spreading eating disorders through social media.  http://thecitizensoffashion.com/2013/01/09/valeria-levitinthe-worlds-thinnest-woman-campaigns-against-anorexia/ Reading about Valeria Levitin, described as “the thinnest woman in the world” in the article, gave me pause.  I remembered N., a former room-mate from art school […]

The Cloud Atlas: A few thoughts on the film


The Cloud Atlas is a very ambitious independent film based on the book by David Mitchell, published in 2004.  Directed by Tom Twyker, Andy and Lana Wachowsky, with a star studded cast (see link): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1371111/fullcredits#directors It is useful to look at the list of cast members and the various roles that each actor plays within the […]

The Courage to Unfold


Hello readers, Right now I am wrestling with the unfolding of the next stage in my life.  I feel the necessity of moving on, to leaving my current work, to shedding my current skin for a larger and more complex hide, to accommodate a newer version of myself.  I am leading myself to believe that […]

Heart Is Where Home Is


When I was a little girl, I often felt that I originated from a different planet.  Earth did not feel like my home.  At least the family in which I had landed did not make me feel as if I belonged to them and that they belonged to me.  And so began a life-long quest […]

Dust of the Earth: the Spiritual Meaning of Living in a Body


Hello readers, Recently, I haven’t been writing as much because my body has been occupying my attention.  More specifically, the center part of my body, which would correspond to the third chakra in Ayurvedic medicine.  According to Carolyn Myss (author of Anatomy of the Spirit, among other titles), the third chakra corresponds to the value […]

Musings on the future of health


Hello readers.  I don’t know how you all feel about your health and the choices available as far as what to buy, how to prepare it, and what constitutes a healthy diet for yourself and your family.  As a library employee, in addition to the Internet, I have ready access to a lot of information.  […]
