The Grace in Falling Down

The Grace in Falling Down

I’ve had plenty of people in my life validate me for being strong; single Mom, self-employed, paid a mortgage on my own for years and still had a great life. I can do things like install hardwood floors, tile a bathroom, sheetrock walls, etc. I got this, or so I thought. Then, something crazy happened. Not all at once, but

It’s All About Walking The Path

It's All About Walking The Path

I was sitting at coffee yesterday, with a client I’ve worked with the last few years in various capacities. That being both personal work, and business coaching. This time, it was to be a business conversation that quickly went the way of personal growth. Really, the sometimes struggles of personal growth. See, when we are growing up, we’re given a

Being our Best

I gave a talk to a local women’s’ group a while back.  It was a talk, that joyfully, turned into a conversation, and I love conversations.  I don’t always like giving “talks. Even I get bored listening to myself sometimes.  But I do truly adore conversations.  It feeds my love of people, and what they think, and who they are

What is Reiki?

I am often approached by people asking for information about Reiki (pronounced “Ray-Key”).  “what is it?”, “how does it work?”, “can just anyone do it”?  while these are simple questions to answer, the answer itself, goes some much deeper than can be explained in words.  Our body, as in our physical body, comes nicely equipped with an invisible shield.  Our

Becoming Yourself – Opening to your intuitive uniqueness

So often I am asked “how can I open up to my own intuition”.  Many people that I sit with recognize themselves as being intuitive.  They know they have hunches that often work out the way they thought they would.  They think of someone and a short time later that person calls.  They’ve had dreams that came true.  All these

Is Love A Second Hand Emotion?

30 minute session

“What’s love got to do with it” ~  Tina Turner. Sorry to date myself on the music, but is love really just a second-hand emotion? A sweet old-fashioned notion? I think not. Welcome everyone, to February!  The month of love, and cards and candy and pink hearts everywhere.  It’s great, isn’t it?  Well, mostly. We really put a lot of

New Year, new you

So, here we are in January! A new year! So exciting! Well, maybe… so often by this point we’re reconsidering those new years resolutions, we’ve fallen off the new diet, exercise program, mindfulness practices, organization system, etc. We’re trying, we really are, but change can be hard!!!! That’s not just me whining, it’s the truth, change can be hard, so

Good bye, and hello; letters to time

Well, here we are, starting a brand-new year! It’s January 1, 2019, and I can literally feel the buzz of newness in the air. That may actually be our -16-degree temps here in Northern MN, but I’m choosing to experience it as the buzz of the New Year, so please leave me to my delusion. I love, and I mean

Going Home for the Holidays

Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like HOME. For so many of us the holidays mean going home. And for many people its not ALWAYS a positive experience. For everyone I work with that is steeped in their family of origin with love, support, unconditional acceptance, there are several who are constantly working to maintain themselves, their truth,

Want some sanity this holiday season? Know “why”

Whether you’ve been counting down to Christmas since July, or you’re a “I’ll take my holidays one at a time thank you” person, as I am, its time to start gearing up as we are indeed in full holiday swing. For many people the holidays equate to fun, family and festivities, for others, they’re a time of uncontrollable stress, pressure
