It is the most wonderful time of the year! For many of you, you may be wondering how I completely missed Christmas, but I am not talking about Christmas. I am talking about maple sapping season!! Every year we go to the woods, drill, hammer, taps, hose and buckets in hand, waiting to see what we will get from Santa…ah,

The gift of this man

I wish you all could take a look around my house…well, maybe not, it looks like a crazy person lives here.  Along with boxes of journals, and me on my computer writing, I see the table I brought up and placed directly in front of our living room window, now covered with seed packets and seed pods as I have

The tricky thing about manifestation

If you had asked me two years ago about my plans for the future, I would’ve told you that in 5 to 7 years Clarence and I would be moving north. I had a plan to grow my business in a more remote direction for the next 5 to 7 years while we prepared to relocate north. I wrote it

Putting the pieces together- learning from our past…lives

“I had one past life that is very loud and I keep dreaming about her. She wants me to know how uneducated and sad her life was and won’t seem to shut up about it. I have never thought of how important an education is. I think my creativity and love of learning must have been the lesson I needed

A new view of Discipline

I recall clearly Spirit saying to me that in 2024, nothing will stay the same. I won’t lie, at first I was a bit put off. Being skeptical by nature I was suspicious the moment the words arrived and comprehension clicked in what had been said. “Nothing will stay the same.” As I asked “what the hell does that mean,”

Welcome to the New Year, now DO mostly nothing

Greetings and welcome to 2024! My family will tell you, I am a celebrator. I love to celebrate. All the things; birthdays, anniversaries, promotions, life changes of all sorts and degrees, holidays, non-holidays, a sunshiny day, you name it. On any given day I can be found walking out my front door and exclaiming “HELLO WORLD!” to the sky and

Saying Good-bye

I’ve always had a saying, “the only reason I get up at 5am is for a plane ride”… until today. Today I got up at 2:30am, not to make a plane ride but to help my son make a plane. They say that parting is such sweet sorrow. After 2 ¾ years of military mom life, I’m still not quite

A Christmas miracle – Something about home

“I think we should put up Christmas lights!” He said it with the enthusiasm of a child. I stared at him with a look and an inner dialog somewhere between “Who is this man and what the hell happened to my husband?” And “will the aliens who abducted him bring him back, or keep him for entertainment,” and “Did he

A holiday reminder – Holding space for others in sorrow

She held them up, and in a voice that had a distinct tone of ‘these are going no matter what, or how’ said, “Would YOU have any use for these?” She was talking to my husband, not me. We all stared at her for a moment, standing there with these obviously used bib overalls in her hand. My husband gave

Into the Place You Were Born From

We opened our group as we do every month, with a moment of grounding guided by the voice of Spirit. She led us into our bodies, with the most incredible reverence for its existence, and asked us to breathe “into the place you were born from.” It was a process of deepening into our breath further and further, and further
