not all fun and ghosts, pray for lost souls

Yesterday I had the opportunity to work in one of the most beautiful old buildings I’ve ever been in, and I’ve been in A LOT of them.  a large brick building with a very stately presence, quietly, unassumingly looking over Lake Superior with an air of sophistication.  As though the big lake itself sets there simply to be gazed upon

Lost at Sea

I often refer to our second chakra, right below the belly button, as the water basin. Our emotional body is signified by water; fluid, constantly in motion, sometimes deep beyond words, other times shallow. Cool and calm, or hot, balmy, humid. It’s easy, with all of life’s variables, to feel lost in the water basin sometimes. Take now for instance.

Like does truly attract like…a weird epiphany

“Its better to have it along and not need it, than to wish you had it”. I’ve heard my Dad say this a million times, and I honestly don’t think I’m exaggerating. My parents were visiting us at the lake and my ever-chilly Mother was trying to decide if she should bring her jacket on the boat, or not. “Will

Feeling the pressure

So, been feeling pressured the last couple months? Yeah, me too. This has been a crazy energy ride. The feminine energy, the masculine energy, no wait, back to the feminine energy. It gets a little wishy washy. There are so many times lately that I seriously believe there is a family of rodents running my brain…the furry tail kind…SQUIRREL! Here

Your own voice

As a person who has struggled with chronic fatigue the last several years, I REALLY value my sleep. With intense frustration I tell you the last week, finding sleep has been like trying to locate Waldo. Finally, last night I slept!! REJOICE!!! Seriously, you have no idea. At any rate, I woke this morning, not only from a good night

A simple “thank you”

The evening of July 4th, I sat on a boat watching fireworks, beautiful night, slight breeze, not to hot, not too cold, nearly perfect. I looked around at all the other boats; people talking and laughing and having fun. Folks on shore hooting and hollering as the sky lit up with colors and bursts of all shapes and sizes. It

Do a little dance

The last month plus (5 weeks and one day) of my life has been a blur. My father was seriously injured in an accident and, while he’s still recovering, and will be for some time, my effort is in trying to re-identify “normal life”. Its always amazing to me how our ego has us convinced that, first of all, our

Spring cleaning

Well, just when we thought Mother Nature had totally forgotten about releasing the Midwest from the holds of Winter, the sunshine has appeared in greater strength, the snow has melted, and the temperatures are climbing! Naturally we’re drawn to open the windows and let the fresh air in, to clean out the old crud that’s been sitting around all winter…namely

A light in the darkness – looking at grief

A light in the darkness – looking at grief     To be perfectly honest, I was a very reluctant medium. I loved doing psychic readings, and coaching, and energy healing, shamanic work, etc. but talking to dead people…thanks, I’ll pass. Along my journey, a chiropractor who I’ve worked with sent me a woman who had lost her first child

It’s the little things that get me excited

So, I’m working from the cabin this week. Which I totally love. I love getting up in the morning seeing the pine trees outside my window, the snow drifted across the yard, the lake covered in snow, flat and tundra like. I love it. I truly love walking into the kitchen, the smell of fresh ground coffee, the yum of
