Spring Equinox – Balance in Motion!

3 Easy Ways To Increase Your Resilience

“What is your current resilience factor?” I asked a client recently.   I could have made a batch of gluten-free cookies in the pause before her answer. “I don’t think I’m very resilient at all,” she said in a measured tone, trying to hide that she was weeping.  “Woo-hoo, pot of gold!” I thought.  Then, with oceans of love, I said to her, “We have hit a nerve here.  Let’s just be right here, right now.”  Just then, she felt vulnerable and … [Read more...]

How To Really Celebrate Being A Woman

Do you really celebrate being a woman?  By its very nature, celebration suggests an out-loud, public proclamation.  Case in point – March 8th is International Women’s Day.  Today, corporations with no, or one or two women on their Boards of Directors, and governments run by non-representative government (as in, not representing the make-up of the population) will donate money, make pledges and promise a few incremental changes. (Don’t worry I … [Read more...]

How To Transmute Your Stuff!

From the insult, “Snake-oil salesman” describing someone believed to be a charlatan to “That ssssnake!” implying someone dastardly, snakes get a bad rap.  Growing up in Texas, I can’t tell you how many times I heard, “The only good snake is a dead snake.”  My mother even tried to instill her snake-phobia into me.  Mostly, I just wound up afraid of them. Wait A Minute! Afraid of them that is right up until I enthusiastically embraced the meaning … [Read more...]

Full Moon Wild Ride!

January’s Full Moon in Leo is going to fire-up our emotional responses to “stuff” – so there, can’t say you weren’t warned!  While deal-breaking stuff is not up for most of us, this full moon we are gifted with the desire and strength to share our hearts, our passions, our longings and, yes, our boundaries!  Sun opposite in Aquarius tempers some of our fierier communications with a cooling, watery impartiality. The power of this combination … [Read more...]

Banish The Relationship Devil!

Are you worried about your children, parents, partner or pets? Does 3:00 a.m. find you ruminating about an exchange with a co-worker or client?  Are you scared you are somehow screwing up your spiritual relationship by not meditating enough, or just right?  I think we all engage in these crazy-making, sleep-depriving worries.  Why?  We don’t want to be the ones that “mess up” a relationship. When I decided to heal my body rather than undergo … [Read more...]

Get Your Balance On!

Despite summer’s last gasp of soaring temperatures, the Fall Equinox is this week: Saturday, September 22, 2012.  We enter the sun sign of Libra, which is all about restoring balance, harmony and fairness.  The trick?  To give those things to ourselves as much as we offer them to others. Then & Now As a kid I thought the transition from summer to fall was about moving from playtime to study-time (and that I could officially start making my … [Read more...]

Blue Moons & Self Love

Friday, August 31, 2012 is the full moon and a “Blue Moon” at that. There are two definitions floating around about the term Blue Moon.  The older of the two definitions refers to the third of four full moons in one season (there are typically three moon cycles per season).  The “newer” and some would say accidental definition refers to the second full moon in one month.  Either way – Blue Moons don’t happen regularly.  In fact, the next one … [Read more...]
