See the Light!

  In honor of the Summer Solstice in the northern hemisphere, my Divine Friends decided They wanted to comment on the beings of light that we are. In this vlog, They shared a practical tip on how to see your own Divine Light (and others too) and encouraged each of us to set the intention to see ourselves, everyone and every situation in our lives through the eyes of love and light that we truly are and then to notice our experiences shift as we go about our … [Read more...]

How to Call Off a Mini Panic Attack!

Recently, I was connected to Zoom and ready to interview author and creativity expert, Dr. Eric Maisel for the upcoming Joyful You Summit 2. I could see on my back-end system that Dr. Maisel arrived and we could talk with each other, but I couldn’t see him on my screen. Since this had happened with other speakers, I asked him to click on the video camera icon. He clicked several times, but it still didn’t work. Hmmm, something else was obviously going on. What to do? Eric and I did our … [Read more...]

I feel so silly sharing this . . .

A few Sundays ago, after Reiki training and a week of solid rain, I went for a walk on the paved paths around a local lake. With all the rain we’ve had lately, the lake is full and feeds a lovely, restored waterfall. This lake is a popular spot for birds who migrate and common ducks alike. From a distance, I noticed two mallard ducks who looked like love birds as they sat beak-to-beak. I was captivated by them and pointed them out to a mom who walked the perimeter while her kids zoomed by on … [Read more...]

I goofed . . . felt stupid and ashamed!

(Another Joyful You 2 Summit behind-the-scenes story). A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing former Miss USA, Terri Britt, for the upcoming Joyful You 2 Video Summit. I just love Terri and so respect and value what she has to say that I’ve invited her to participate on all my summits and lucky for us, she said yes each time! Terri and I have such fun when we’re together that we get excited and talk a mile a minute. After she fixed a slight video glitch and I said a prayer, I … [Read more...]

Quick question for you . . .

I’m doing a quick study and wanted to know if I can ask you a somewhat intimate question . . . My question is this . . .  Do you feel even the tiniest bit guilty when you take a day off from work, because you’re sick, whether it’s a cold, the flu, or a much needed mental health day? I ran into one of my neighbors, Kathleen, a few days ago in the middle of the afternoon. Since she’s usually at work then, I asked how she was doing? She mentioned that she’d been sick earlier that week … [Read more...]

Are you around this week?

Hi Quick story for you . . . At our last Sacred Women’s Circle, we explored the 1st or Root Chakra. (In case you’re unfamiliar, chakras are energy centers in the body.) One activity we did was massage and connect with our feet, ankles, knees, legs, hips and tailbone as those are the body areas the Root Chakra covers. As I massaged my feet, I noticed how sore the bunion below my big toe was. (I knew this was caused by a new pair of sneakers I use for walking and jogging.) We then … [Read more...]

I’m taking a quick poll . . .

I’m taking a quick poll and wanted to know if I can ask you a personal (and somewhat vulnerable) question . . . My question is this: How often do you wake up in the morning feeling really jazzed, excited and delighted to start your day?  In one of the private Facebook groups I’m in, a friend of mine, Tina, commented that she rarely, even on weekends, wakes up happy or excited. Tina is such a caring person. She has lots of friends and her dog and everyone else’s dogs adore her, but … [Read more...]
