3 Tools to Raise Your Vibes

Each Wednesday on my Facebook page I draw two oracle cards to seek motivation and raising our vibes midway through the work week.  I do a daily reading  every weekday using a different intention and two different decks, which I choose intuitively.  Then, I coach on the messages given to me through the cards. YouContinue reading “3 Tools to Raise Your Vibes”

Elephant Sized Heart

There is no doubt that Elephants are gentle giants.  Their ability to express emotion often brings us to feelings of joy and sorrow.  How sad we feel when an elephant sheds tears. They truly elicit our empathy and compassion. They are loving, bonding, intelligent and forgiving creatures.  I often wonder if elephants are so largeContinue reading “Elephant Sized Heart”

The Feels

The Holiday Season can be rough even for the best of us.  Some are grieving the loss of a loved one, some don’t get along with their family, some don’t have the money to give the gifts they would like.  I recall a couple Christmases as a single mom with no family dinner, nor giftsContinue reading “The Feels”

Love is Love

Love.  Something we cannot live without.  We desire to give and receive love- on many levels, not just romantic.  It’s basic human instinct and is vital for our soul and emotional health to thrive just as oxygen and food and water are necessary for our physical body. Why, then, is love so hard?  Why can’tContinue reading “Love is Love”

Strong Women Haters

This is a touchy subject for me.  Growing up I was called “stubborn”, “defiant”, “moody”, a “bitch”, “opinionated” – I never seemed to go along or get along in the family as the only girl with two brothers being raised by my father. For twenty years my father used all his Army Reserve Psychological OpsContinue reading “Strong Women Haters”

Forever Lasts Forever

Dearly beloved We are gathered here today To get through this thing called “life” Electric word, life It means forever and that’s a mighty long time… 2016.  The year we lost Prince.  David Bowie. Alan Rickman. Muhammad Ali. Elie Wiesel. Gene Wilder.  John Glenn.  And so many others who uplifted us, made us laugh, taught usContinue reading “Forever Lasts Forever”

Achey Breaky Heart

Sometimes the pain we feel is so intense that we think our hearts could explode.  Just know that your heart cannot actually break from this pain. Sure, stress and trauma can cause damage to your body – that’s not the kind of breaking I am talking about.  I’m talking about the kind of heart breakContinue reading “Achey Breaky Heart”

Life is Short

I’m creeping up on the 5-0 and will reach that milestone in a couple years.  On my latest birthday I got to thinking about just how different 50 is to my generation than what it was to the boomers.  At my age, my mom was a grandmother (though she looked so young) and had lessContinue reading “Life is Short”

Mothers and Sons

Show me a mother with a son and I will show you woman trying very hard to raise a man who treats women well, is responsible, hard working and a person who will make a fine husband and father one day.  Not in all cases, but my experience is that this is what we wantContinue reading “Mothers and Sons”

Mothers and Daughters

It would take a book to discuss all the complexities involved in mother-daughter relationships and I sure don’t have it all figured out from either the daughter or the mother perspectives. I was separated from my own mom at a young age.  When I finally got to live with her again I was a 17Continue reading “Mothers and Daughters”
