For That I Am Grateful

There once was a time when I could not fathom the thought of living without my mother. I was much younger then and my mother was alive and vibrant. She and I were two peas in a pod and life, despite our growing pains, was sweet.

My mother is dead. Well, her physical body has returned to whence it came, the soil, but her spirit remains alive and vibrant. I am no longer able to hug or hold her, but I am able to spend time with her and call upon her guidance. For that I am grateful.

There is an expression “You don’t know what you don’t know”. I never knew back then, when I could not fathom the thought of living without my mother, that I wouldn’t have to. I did not know one’s spirit lives on, remaining ever present, even after the physical body has returned to whence it came. I also did not know I could be even closer to my mother in spirit than I was when we walked this earth plane together. You don’t know what you don’t know – until you do, that is.

Take Solace in the Solar Eclipse ~ Resistance is Futile

What does being knocked on my arse have to do with the upcoming solar eclipse? Last Wednesday I awoke with a flaming hot sore throat and overall malaise. I felt energetically drained yet intrigued. How did these feelings knock me off my feet when just yesterday I was full of vim and vigor?

I couldn’t do much about my curious nature that day, because even allowing myself to think about the ‘whys’ expended more energy than I possessed in that moment, so I made a decision to surrender. Totally surrender. You see, over the years I have learned and mostly the ‘hard way’, that although to resist or not to resist is a choice, I expend much less energy when I choose not to resist.

Today I felt well enough, albeit for a brief span of time, to allow my curious nature to run free. After searching the web I have gleaned I am exactly where I am ‘supposed’ to be, as it pertains to my physical and mental well-being and the approaching solar eclipse, that is. Read More

Rule Breaker Awards Nominee 2017

My philosophy “we take ourselves with us when we go” focuses on excavating the best damn version of who you are. Challenging the belief ‘life ends when you die’ has opened an entirely different and unique perspective on how to live.

Traditional counseling focuses on the living; my revolutionary counseling provokes thought, creates connection and conversation and brings the dead to life; providing you with no-nonsense, powerful results and has earned me a nomination for the 2017 Rule Breakers Award.

‘Old Dogs, New Tricks’

There are so many lessons to be learned from the spirit realm. Lessons we were either unable to ‘take in’ when our parents attempted to teach us many moons ago – or lessons we were not ready to learn when our grandparents walked this earth plane wishing to share their experience and advice.

It is however, refreshing to know it is never too late to learn and yes, my dear, it is never too late to teach ‘old dogs new tricks’. Read More

Ring in the Old

There is no better time than the beginning of a new year to wax sentimental. Sure, we give thought to our loved one’s in spirit each and every day, however, when the season of love and giving comes around thoughts of our loved ones become front and center on our minds.

As you ring in the New Year, ring in old familiar feelings of love, family and connection, and call upon your loved ones in spirit to pay a visit. Because they are usually willing and able to visit on a whim or a prayer or a request, you can call upon them whenever you like. As a matter of fact, most likely they have called upon you more often than you realize or are willing to admit. Read More


(There’s No Place Like) Home For The Holidays

Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays
‘Cause no matter how far away you roam
When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze
For the holidays you can’t beat home sweet home*

Every time I hear that song I am transported back in time to the days of yore. Transported back to the days of my mother happily preparing for the holidays, bedecked in a Christmas apron, decorating the house in her usual flair and baking all sorts of cookies and sweet treats. As far as I was concerned, my mother, Leah, was the star on the top of our Christmas tree; her jolly presence set the house ‘aglow’.

Plant Your Seed of Dreams

Go forth and prosper… our wisdom of the day.

There are many ways one may prosper – though you must step out and take action in order to begin the process.

Actually, the process begins with a thought – a desire, a dream, perhaps.

And for many, it ends right where it began… because action, the first step, was not taken.

Sure, you have heard this all before, read it in advice columns, or self-help books – this we know.

But the fact of the matter is – you do need to take the first step and many steps thereafter to make it so.

And the desire, the dream, the thought – needs to be firmly planted in the soil before it can take hold, plant roots and begin to germinate, sprout, grow.

How do you do this?
