I was given this .... um ... I won't say, since then you will know my age. I feel 25, so we will go with that. I was given this a very long time ago, way before I truly found myself (my whole self). I was going through a very difficult time in my life at that point. I came across this declaration again while organizing paperwork recently, so I thought I would share it with you. I was given many other helpful things that I will soon share. I am not sure who to acknowledge as the author, since … [Read more...] about A Declaration of Self Esteem
The Quiet of the Soft Snow Falls Gently
It is snowing big, beautiful flakes of soft snow outside today! I love to watch the snow fall gently from the sky. It is quiet. Serene. It blankets the Earth. It makes it appear like a large blank canvas ... just waiting for splashes of color to be added to the landscape. … [Read more...] about The Quiet of the Soft Snow Falls Gently
What Makes You Happy?
What makes you, yes you, happy? Really happy? You don’t know? Make a written or mental list over the next few weeks on what you are doing when you smile. You will start to see a pattern.

My good friend, Sindy, proposed we write 11 days of healing in honor of her mother, whose birthday happens to be on September 11th. Today I will start with some numeral messages from Doreen Virtue’s book, Angel Numbers 101 (Hay House, 2008) Taken from her book, here are a few meanings for the numbers associated with the day. 9 = “Get to work, Lightworker—now! The number 9 means that you’ve completed all of the prerequisites to achieve your life purpose. Stop procrastinating, as it’s time to … [Read more...] about Changing Your Perspective on Life
How to Meditate – Start with Just ONE Minute
How do you meditate? There are thousands of ways. The important thing is to not try. Trying stops the process of relaxing. Allow instead. For me, meditating took a looooong time of: trying ... reading about it ... trying ... giving up for a while ... reading some more ... trying walking meditation ...

A little something I painted last night. Nature's Love is in honor of the many signs of love I see in the nature all around us. One just needs to seek and you will find. I have hidden a heart in my painting. Can you find it? (The oil is still wet so it is a little shiny in the photo.) I wondered if I looked at the stars and you did too, it would seem as though you are not too far ... I had to add them to the painting. See if you can find the love in nature... … [Read more...] about Nature’s Love
