Norwegian Wood


Miten’s version of Norwegian Wood with Deva Premal—mmmmmmm! Consider this classic Beatles’ song as a metaphor for being captivated by the ego and transcending it. “so I lit a fire, isn’t it good, Norwegian wood?” Norwegian Wood I once had a girl, or should I say, she once had me. She showed me her room, … Continue reading

Healing Loss: Election Edition


Imagine that you’ve lived your life in the seat of democracy, a shining beacon of ideals, progressive values and freedom that literally draws the world. And picture a slow-motion carnival of the absurd and outrageous, a grainy side show culminating in a presidential election with breath-taking results. Not only does the popular-vote-candidate-by-a-landslide not win, but … Continue reading

Terrorism: A Call to Prayer


A week ago the carnage in Paris happened. As I shook off the shock, grateful to be technically out of harm’s way, along with my sadness I felt the urge to do something helpful. From the United States, and not being in the military, not being a doctor or nurse, not being a politician or … Continue reading

Open Heart Creativity


The magnificence of God’s extension lies within each of us, ready to manifest. Our only real choice is whether to allow it or block it. We begin to allow when we ask that the Will of Love be made manifest through us. But the day-to-day, moment-by-moment “choice switch” is at the heart. With open hearts, … Continue reading

Mary Magdalene’s Got Bounce


My favorite aspect of the archetype of Mary Magdalene is her embodiment of redemption transformed into the Divine Feminine. No matter where we started (even being a “lowly woman”) or where we’ve gone, the claiming of our Divine nature and purpose is possible. Oh how high we can bounce! We can mature spiritually and express … Continue reading

Independence Day Indeed


Since the Course came through the Americans Helen Schucman and Bill Thetford, I wondered if Jesus included a special lesson for us on Independence Day.  He did: I want the peace of God. To say these words is nothing. But to mean these words is everything. If you could but mean them for just an … Continue reading

I have no cause for anger or for fear, for You surround me. And in every need that I perceive, Your grace suffices me.   (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 348) I have every reason to feel safe and abundant.

Hell Week, Heaven Sent


In the short span of one week: client #1 offered me schedule changes that dictate cutting my hours in half while infringing on my most popular time for individual sessions (reducing my income further), client #2 put our work on hold indefinitely due to cost-cutting measures, and, client #3 sold her business and retired. And … Continue reading
