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

6 Must do’s for Healthy "ME time"

I love my family, my work, my life…until I don’t like it anymore.  Ever been there?  Its great, everything. Really.  And then one day you’re totally like, “I’ve had it, what is Peru like this time of year?”  Sweetheart we all get there.  All of us.  If you’ve never had that moment, well, maybe you’re still really young and not

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

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
