The coffee cup and bedside table get along very well. The coffee sits comfortably on her benefactor. The table is grateful, with its energy compact and solid, reliable for her. If someone ever calls me dense, I’ll offer them a ride on my back. What if I could perceive all... Continue reading

So, there’s sunshine, coffee, and yoga for enlightenment … and alfredo sauce. I made chicken alfredo for dinner and I swear I tried to take bath in it. Alfredo will turn a good girl bad. When the family was done eating, I promptly put the leftovers in a container for... Continue reading

In the woods at the dog park, there’s a massive oak tree I enjoy playing with. I approach him with enthusiasm and then plant my feet firmly in solidarity. The dirt surrounding him is like a new mother, devoted to her baby yet fatigued in her work. The earth has... Continue reading

Do you want to experience more balance in your life? More stability? More surefootedness? Go barefoot. Whenever it’s possible, I strip away socks and shoes and let my feet kiss the ground as they cruise me along the journey. While I celebrate the protection that shoes give from the cold,...

I sit here on a couch that is no ordinary piece of furniture. It is a mass of springs and fluff that has seen countless hours of love. Friends and family have gathered here, shared, laughed, and cried. The energy is forever woven in the fabric, and I can draw... Continue reading

I savor the process of discarding things. Admittedly, this has nothing to do with the other person, the anonymous one who will receive my “trash” as his “treasure.” It has everything to do with the power that is cultivated in the act. The doing is everything. The act has nothing to do with giving or receiving, but everything to do with gratitude. It is mandatory that I shed. I am filled to overflow and there is no other way. To release is to have faith. Continue reading

The sun is forceful this morning, wasting no time in lifting me up by the shoulders. He knows what I can do and needs a collaborative effort today. I am ready. I tell him I don’t want to move mountains because they’re all perfectly placed. Our challenges always are. But... Continue reading

Momentum will take me over, like running downhill after charging up, up, up. I will catch my breath before taking the next breath. I will create momentum around the mundane and thereby transform it into inspired action. Love builds this force and waves a magic wand around movement. I've never... Continue reading

There’s nothing more important than the process I’m going through right now, where I allow love to flow through me for the benefit of others. Nothing. So I will allow. I will allow the fullness of who I am to be expressed and explored. I will allow the abundance of... Continue reading

Today, I stood in a warrior’s pose, feel firmly planted. My hips, my heart, my arms were open wide in competition with one another. My hips told me that I give birth to each moment through my love. My heart told me that we are one. My arms told me... Continue reading

Your body is the vessel you will use while you are here on this journey. Though it might be very difficult, try to listen to your heart and not what everyone around you is saying about your appearance. They are not wrong to tell you how your hair would look... Continue reading

Inhale: I sweep my arms high to the sun, hopeful to hold it today, even if it burns. Exhale: I spill forward, humble and uncertain, yet fearless. Inhale: I halfway lift, stretching my spine, reaching the crown of my head toward the mirror, toward myself. A dialogue between me and... Continue reading

As a personal trainer, here is the very best advice I can give you for physical fitness - just move your body. Move your body in ways that you love every day. Move your body in lots of DIFFERENT ways every day. Stop overthinking what your body already knows to do. You came out moving, and you should keep moving until your journey is done. Continue reading

It might all come down to walking the dog today. I don’t seem to be gaining power through the coffee, the plant, the candle. I’m okay with that. I know that my happiness doesn’t rely on so few things, but that I have access to infinite love. This frustration is... Continue reading

Writing can connect you with Source, if you will allow. Appreciation is our ultimate superpower, and we cultivate it with every letter. Do not be alarmed if it doesn’t come easy at first. Like other muscles that don’t get used, your ability to appreciate may be a little weak. That’s okay. Just breathe and let it come to you. Continue reading

I was so excited to wake up this morning, get my coffee, and begin my journey here on the page. And then my ego told me I had nothing to offer. He told me to close my eyes and ignore it all, all of the beauty that leads me home.... Continue reading

Through the drapes this morning, I saw a familiar golden ball waiting for me. But when I got out of the bed to receive him, he wasn’t there. He must have gone back into his nest of clouds for a few more winks. Not me. I am ready. I will... Continue reading

Last night I had a most interesting dream. I was sitting cross-legged on the floor of an unfamiliar bathroom with the door open. Suddenly, a small, multicolored bird flew in and landed on my hand. He pecked at my skin for a while as if to scold me about something.... Continue reading
