Transforming Death into Life through Creation

A fellow blogger and amazing photographer I follow on WordPress, Amy Rose, recently lost a dear friend and in the same week, was told her mother has only months to live. The photos she posted on her most recent blog (the featured image above is one) capture the power of her emotions as she was experiencing them. These photos are stunning. They capture her broken heart and feelings of loss, sadness and grief. I can also see in them her heart full of love and joy, as if while in her grief, she was remembering the times she spent with her friend. These photos embody life. From a death . . .  life was born through creation. Read More

Healing the Inner Child

There is a wealth of information regarding healing the inner child. For the purposes of my blog, I’d like to share from my own personal experience. I got in touch with my inner child in June 2011. My sister Sue mentioned the name Sophie for her and it stuck. I feel that it’s good to name your inner child, others may disagree. I can have a conversation with Sophie, giving her an identity and a voice. It makes it easier for me to relate to her. She is a part of me and remains a separate part of me until we are all fully integrated . . . which I feel will be very soon! Read More

Discernment a Powerful Tool in Making Your Life for Easier

The first counsel written over the gateway to the temple of Delphi, Know Thyself is an important element of good discernment. In my experience, there is a direct correlation between the quality of discernment and how well I know myself. Having good discernment can help me see things with a clear eye and receive answers to questions like: Read More

Healing Negative Beliefs

Negative beliefs are very destructive to ourselves and others, mostly because we believe they are true and identify with them when we use “I am” in front of things like: a burden, weak, not worthy, a mistake . . . It’s not true. You are not a burden! Your negative thoughts are a burden – more likely. Wars are fought over beliefs, we would die for some of them, believing ourselves to be “right” to the death. Many times we find these beliefs we are suffering over aren’t even ours. They are ones we picked up from our parents, family, friends, teachers and the media. read More

Affirmations and Florence Scovel Shinn

Florence Scovel Shinn, I feel, is the leading authority on affirmations. I love her book, The Wisdom of Florence Shovel Shinn. This book contains four of her books:

  • The Game of Life and How to Play It

  • Your Word is Your Wand
  • The Secret of Success

Building a Connection with God

Not so long ago, I realized I was lacking a relationship and connection with God. I may have even been a bit skeptical, or perhaps had unfinished business. I knew about synchronicity, coincidence, The Secret, The Law of Attraction, the Universe, etc., but my interest was mainly from a point of view: That’s just how things work here. It wasn’t personal, I just knew this stuff existed. I had faith, but it was limited to only what I could achieve alone. I was the master of my life and the master of my destiny! Read More

Healing Fragmented Pieces Through Shamanic Journeying

My book, The Path to My Heart, is a story about my fragmented pieces coming back into my life for healing and heart integration. It was obviously time, but I had no idea it was about to happen. They came to life, one by one, with stories of their own healing adventure and a willingness to face their demons. Sophie, my inner child, finally faces her demons at a circus fun house! Read More
