You Are My Favorite

I used to have a supervisor at a job years ago that said (to all of the employees under her):  "You are all my favorite for different reasons."  At the time, I thought maybe that was her way of discouraging anyone from ever striving to be her favorite, or of having to admit she HAD favorites. Now, I'm not so sure about that.  You may know, I've been a bit obsessed with Abraham lately.  Last week, I heard them telling about a four-part daily practice that they recommend.  One of the parts is getting out in nature every day, no matter what the weather, and basically ...

One Big Analogy

Some of you may have seen a picture of my bloody knees that I posted on social media yesterday.  Yes, I did that.  Not sure if it was a great idea, almost took it down, and I didn't.  My point was NOT "poor me", but people seemed to have a strong reaction to it, like it was some horrible thing. Honestly, when it happened- I wiped out and hit the frozen earth while I was jogging- all I could think of was how pain was just part of life.  And it doesn't have to be any big deal.  I have mostly been feeling SUPER GOOD...and then I created some pain.  Sometimes the pain ...

Stay Calm and Be on Vacation

This had to have been "on purpose".  I just went on the most amazing vacation.  My daughter and I had so much fun, 24/7 for 8 days.  Okay, maybe there were a total of like 20 minutes all together that we weren't having an absolutely fabulous time.  And we were in the FLOW.  I mean, synchronicity abounds kind of flow!  We would meet the "right" person, get the "right" travel tips, go the the "right" restaurants, have interactions with the "right" feral cats. ;) We planned very little ahead of time.  Often we would decide the night before or the morning of each day ...

Oh, Fuckity Fuck

And I mean that in the absolute BEST way possible! I am learning about surrender. I am learning about doing things the easy way.  I am learning about letting go of the struggle. Right now I feel like I am floating. I just let go of some things that I have been carrying for a very, very long "time"- AND, time doesn't exist. I didn't do it through effort- well, some of it I did.  And then, I shifted into surrender.  I shifted into letting the process be effortless.  I allowed myself to be fully supported, physically and non-physically, and through ALLOWING I ...

I Did It!

So last Thursday (Thanksgiving) I ran my first road race, a "turkey trot."  It was five miles.  Not that that's such a huge accomplishment.  I mean, I'm proud of myself, AND people do many more amazing things in the world.  It's not really the SIZE of the feat that is noteworthy- though-for anyone, it's how challenging it is for the person that is significant.  AND, how they get through the challenge.  That's what I want to talk about today. I was pretty freaked out when the race first began.  As I said, it was my first race, and what people say about getting ...

I Am The Energy

I've been on an Abraham kick lately.  The Abraham that Esther Hicks channels- a collection of souls that speak through her that call themselves "Abraham".  If you don't know it, it's good stuff.  Go on YouTube and search Abraham and you can hear lots and lots of the recordings. If you do know it, I'm sorry I keep repeating this stuff in my blogs.  ;) So, yeah.  Sometimes I listen to these recordings for inspiration.  I have needed inspiration.  I have been in a tough place with my inner experience, connected to taking bigger and bigger steps in my sacred ...

On Beauty

I have a display of sea glass at my house.  I've collected it over a period of years from various places.  Some of the pieces I've gotten have been the usual sea glass colors- white, light blue, green, and brown.  Others are all kinds of exotic shades of yellow, red, purple, blue, gray- super unusual colors.  I love sea glass.  I love the ocean.  I love walking along the beach and looking for treasures.  I love having the reminder of this experience where I can see it everyday. One day last winter I was on the phone and decided to sort through my collection and ...

What Are You Open To?

I had a cool learning experience the other day. I woke up in one of my foul moods.  To tell the truth, I don't even remember all the details; I think it was one of those "bad dream hangovers".   All I know is that I was starting to have "one of those days".  You know what I'm talking about, right?  When all seems wrong with the world?  Yeah, that kind of day. I decided to go for a run.  Just about always a good choice- to exercise- for all of us when we are out of sorts, right? So I'm running, and I'm running, and I've gone far enough at this point that I'd ...

Transcending the Ego

This summer has been the summer of intense experiences.  Intensely challenging experiences in some ways, which have led to intensely ecstatic experiences. I'm running four to five miles at a time while going at a faster pace than I've been used to.  I'm at the dentist's office, in excruciating pain- for hours.  I'm lying on a table, getting needles repeatedly stuck into me.  For hours.  On skin this is inflamed and red already.  (Yes, I am getting a new tattoo.  I am not THAT much of a masochist.) ;) We all find ourselves in extremely challenging circumstances ...

God/dess on Steroids

In my spiritual evolution, I have come to a place of understanding not just with my mind, also with my heart and body- in my cells even- that I AM God/dess.  For me, the days of praying to some "God" that is separate from me are over.  I don't really pray anymore.  I connect in.  I remember who I really am. And then this morning on my jog, I got another "hit" that took things even a step further.  I/you am not only God/dess; we are more than that.  We have chosen the ultimate challenge.  We are God/dess in a human body, complete with an ego.  And if that's not a ...
