Only What is Love is Real

Only Love is Real

After an incredible weekend with my mom at Marianne Williamson’s A Course in Miracles workshop, I have been pondering the meanings we put on things, relationships, and everything else in life. I had this beautiful clear crystal mala (beaded prayer necklace) that was blessed by the “Hugging Saint” Amma when I visited her ashram in…

Picture Perfect Trust

I am a very lucky girl.  I have this place, Torrey Pines, in my backyard.  Okay, it’s not technically my backyard but a quick jaunt down the highway. I try to enjoy time here at least once a week.  It lifts my spirits, opens creativity, and always inspires.  Oh, and for you San Diegans –…

Hoisting the Sails

Over the past couple of days, I keep watching the thought, “Turn off the motor and let the wind catch the sails,” travel through my head as if on a cyclic repeat. On the yoga mat, I have been present to relaxing into the poses as opposed to stretching, pulling, striving, or even looking in…

John the Banker

What does it mean to be “faithful,” and when does an exchange go from appropriate to inappropriate? As a single 30-something woman who has been holding out for “the one,” I’ve thought a lot and observed even more about fidelity, and I find the topic one of constant evaluation and self-reflection.

With a little help from my friends…in Manitoba

I’ve just returned home from a seriously magical 24 hour trip to Winnipeg and neighboring towns. The snafu: Upon my arrival to Winnipeg Airport at midnight last night, I discovered I didn’t have my driver’s license and couldn’t pick up my rental car.  I had to get to my hotel, sleep, be ready for, and…

A Thread of Compassion

I am watching a web of very strong reactions be spun from beliefs colored in fear, justice, love, resignation, pacifism, anger, hate, division, and unity with the announcement of Bin Laden’s death on Sunday. On the news, I see celebrations in the streets, anti-this-and-that propaganda, and cycles of images of dead people.  Facebook and social…

i choose…what I have chosen.

Life is too short to wake up with regrets. Love the people who treat you right. Forget about the ones who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. …If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy. They just promised…

Waking Up

Call it Mercury Retrograde or call it being confronted – whatever the case, this has been a powerful time where I have been called to connect with and examine my deepest values, sense of self-worth, and belief in my purpose. When I look at the difference I really want to make in the world big…

Presence & Integrity: Can they co-exist?

Over the past couple years, I’ve journeyed into a conversation of living in the “now” and being present.  Simultaneously, I’ve journeyed into a conversation of integrity and of being and honoring my word.  Recently, I’ve found myself inquiring: Can these two conversations exist together or are the mutually exclusive? Living in the moment is so…
