The end of fake freedom

The end of fake freedom


  Dearest readers, In this post, I will attempt to explain how we can move from an illusion of freedom which is still our collective accepted reality, to living as truly free, powerful, and creative beings. This shift requires moving out of duality and into unity – out of the head and into the heart. […]

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.

Creating realities that support joy

Boundaries and Loving Relationships: Are Boundaries Perceived Like Pheromones?


Hello readers, I grew up in a family where my mother was an all-powerful, all-encompassing force.  You could say that she was formidable.  In French, “formidable” means wonderful and awesome.  I guess awesome can be overwhelming and frightening too.  My father had willingly relinquished his voice and power to her, and my brother, sister, and […]

A Nation Addicted to Fear: Is There Room for Love Here?


Hello readers, As a nation and as individuals, we have all been shaken by the recent violence against the staff and innocent students of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT.  And it is our responsibility as adults, as citizens, parents, and as human beings to reflect on the reasons behind such senseless violence.  In […]
