Happy Halloween! At this time of year, the veil between our world and the spirit world is thin. We are more likely to encounter energies, beings, and friends on the other side. The ideas of magic, witchcraft, demons, ghosts, and more are all around us. Continue reading this post here.
On Friday, September 22, 2017, some of the world will be focused on the arrival of autumn, and they will celebrate by changing their decorations to reflect the golden shades of the season, preparing their gardens for winter, and perhaps looking forward to cool nights with warm beverages.

Part of my journey of awakening to my true self included the heavy use of numerology. This is the understanding of numbers for their mystical, occult, and energetic significance. We live in a Universe that is created with order; and part of that order is revealed through...yup, numbers. Continue reading this post here.
By the end of the teacher training for Kundalini Yoga, there were classmates of mine who looked like different people. When they started five months prior, they were stressed, run down, wrinkled, low in energy, and not pleasant to be around. Yet now they had open hearts and easy smiles, the lines were smoothed, and … Continue reading Looking young but being wise
Well, the total eclipse of the sun just happened, and with that came some significant shifts in the energy of our planet Earth and all who live on her. Exactly what happened and how each of us will feel it is something that will unfold over time. But important is simply to recognize that something … Continue reading Before the summer ends, let’s…
I guess this is Part 2 of my earlier post about Peace. I never intended to continue the discussion. But recent events in the United States have many people unsettled about The State of Humanity.

As you likely know, August 7/8 marked the first of two eclipses this month: a partial lunar eclipse. That was a more gentle energetic experience than what we're in for two weeks from now, when on August 21 we have a total eclipse of the sun. Continue reading.
It's funny: Several times, people have asked me in disbelief, "YOU eat PIZZA?" And my response is, "Umm, yes. Of course. It's pizza!" I guess it's the fact that my life is so healthy, clean, and aware. Plus, I am "spiritual." And there's a misconception that "being spiritual" means you need to give up life's … Continue reading Let’s talk about food
"No one likes a complainer." We hear this statement often, and indeed the energy of a true complainer is icky. I recently heard this statement though from one of the "success gurus": someone who made themselves very wealthy and was telling people how they, too, may become successful. Basically, the person said this: Life owes … Continue reading If we have a lifeline to offer, then let’s toss it
Yogi Bhajan always told his students that he intended to make them ten times greater than he was. And that if he didn't accomplish this feat then he would consider that he had failed. This was impressive because Yogi Bhajan was a genuine Master. He had mastered the complex branch of yoga that is Kundalini … Continue reading The true purpose of the “teacher-student” dynamic
It's often thought that we shouldn't allow ourselves to get angry. Or that anger is a negative emotion. That can be true--if it becomes destructive, if it is vented unconsciously. But. Continue reading.
I sit in my new favorite place, my window seat. And all is quiet around me, save for the sounds coming from outside. The window is open two inches; enough for me to be part of the world. To watch it from my perch, two stories up, and hidden behind glass. I observe. Continue reading.
