    The Importance of Self-Care

    Hello, again! This was the thought that went through my mind when I woke up this morning… lol We’re rolling with the punches, though, right? We’ve got this! Yesterday I mentioned re-accessing my priorities. When I spoke to Dh he said, “you’re still going to ‘meditation’, right?” See, twice a week I go to my beautiful soul sister’s studio. From the goodness of her heart, she conducts guided meditations which encourage us to breathe deeply. For me, this is especially beneficial given that I tend to be a shallow breather (unless I consciously focus on it, of course). This has actually led to some health problems for me. Who would…

    Sometimes “Good Enough” IS Enough: A Musing From the Path

    A Happy Monday morning to you, my friend. Did the weekend treat you well? I do hope so. What is on the agenda for today? For me, I’m focusing on self-care, on regaining my equilibrium, physically as well as spiritual. I am grateful that I am not as “out of whack” as I have been in the past. In the past, vertigo has hit me so hard that it would lay me up in bed for days. The belief was that it was an “inner ear infection” brought on by bad drainage of allergies. Over the years, though, I’ve come to realize that while that may be the case, it is…

    Nurturing the Buddha Seed Within

    Have you ever had an experience that seemingly turned your entire life upside down? One that seemed to change the way you viewed the world itself? It may seem like an exaggeration, but that was what last weekend was for me. I am still in awe of the enormity of it all. Such revelations! Personally and with regard to my worldview (spiritual and mundane). That’s what’s taking the most amount of time for me to process, and as I understand it from others who have experienced the same 3-day seminar, one will continue to do so for many, many days (if not years) to come. After all, growing a “saint”, a “buddha”…

    Still Around and With Focus – What’s Coming Up

    Hello, again, dear friend. I bet you were beginning to wonder whether something happened to me or not. After all, I was getting pretty prolific in my posts there for a while, then nothing the past week. The past 7 days have been pretty busy around here. Not least of all is the fact that the kids are now out of school for the summer, and given that this is the first summer in our new beach-town home, LB and I are planning to enjoy it. We’ve already made a trip to the waterpark we have season passes to, which Dh and I gifted our family with this past holiday season. And…

    Emotions: They Just Are (Day 3 of the Gentle Visibility Blogfest)

    Hello there, dear friend! This post is a little late being published. It’s been a really busy day here. I did want to pop in, though. (I haven’t forgotten about you! How could I? Yes! You’re that special to me and in general. *grins*) How has the energy felt for you lately? The past couple of days I’ve noticed I’ve been feeling run down, drained, and more than just a little emotional, and there’s seemingly no real explanation for it. That was until I spoke with others in our spiritual community here today. They’re feeling it as well. (Good to know I’m in such good company, at least.) How about…

    The Bumpy Road: Our Spiritual Journey

    “The road to becoming more spiritual is a messy one. A bumpy one. One full of roadblocks. But the journey is beautiful and the landscape is breathtaking.” ~ Ashley Strong, Deus Nexus The energy I feel around me is very heavy right now. In some ways, it feels almost stifling. This, I believe, is one of the challenges of being an empath. Feeling the lows as well as the highs. There are many people going through challenging times at the moment. Have you noticed that? Maybe I’m just more aware of it at the moment because it seems I keep running into them. Almost as if Spirit has decided that…

    Authenticity: Come. Come, And Wear Your Bunny Suit!

    Yesterday morning, as I went through my inbox over coffee, I happened to come across a post published on my one life. today entitled Ordinary and as I read it, I could hear a little voice inside me screaming, “YES! THAT!” Needless to say, I could very closely relate to what the author was writing about. I’ve been on this journey for some time. In some respects, it feels like it’s been absolutely forever, and in that time, I’ve experienced the anxiety of finding my “Purpose”. In some ways, at least back toward the beginning, it was a case of “let me figure it out, so I can get on with it and go home!”…

    Meeting Change with Less Resistance

    I came across this image from Conscious Reminder this morning not long after awakening and has played about in the back of my mind ever since. In my experience, change can often be quite a challenging journey for one to traverse. Take for instance my current journey “toward a more healthy me”. You like how I put a positive spin on that? Originally, I typed “my current journey in weight loss”, but isn’t that exactly what Conscious Reminder is attempting to point out here? A journey “toward a more healthy me” focuses more on ‘building the new’, rather than ‘fighting the old’, wouldn’t you say? There are some who might…

    Autumn Blessings: Reflection and Transformation

    Autumn is upon us… Well, apparently, Missouri is a little late in getting the memo. The temps have remained consistent with summer. It is supposed to cool back down tomorrow, though, and become more “autumny”. (Thank all that is good!) Over the years, Autumn has become a time of great reflection and transformation for me, and this year is certainly no different. I have known since the beginning that 2017 is a ‘1 year’. A year of beginnings. It has not reflected that energy to me. That is, until recently. Guess it’s a late-blooming energy in my life. Or maybe I’m just the late bloomer. lol Either way, it is…
