Finding stillness in the middle of all the chaos in our world is challenging, and it’s never been more difficult than during these last months. I believe that learning to be still, returning to our center, that place inside that settles our fears and calms emotions, is a vital survival skill at all times, but especially now.

Sunday Quotes: Lessons

A therapist friend of mine often says “just another flipping growth experience!” when life throws challenges at her. Well, she uses a different “f” word, but you get the idea. Her words always pop into my mind when things get tough – and as far as tough goes, this year wins hands down over any other year.Continue Reading

Sunday Quotes: Holiday Memories

Ever since I put up my Christmas tree Thanksgiving week, memories of past holidays have been flooding in. In past years, there have always been a few tears mixed in with the smiles as I recall the history of each ornament. In this extraordinary year, these memories have been bringing more sadness than smiles as I’m struggling with missing the holiday traditions of past years.  Continue Reading

Sunday Quotes: Choose Love

cat-holiday-lights

Whenever I get bogged down in the energy of worry and fear, which unfortunately happens on an almost daily basis in this challenging year, I remind myself that I can choose to shift my energy – but it’s not an easy task these days.

Sometimes, just looking at Allegra sleep in a sun puddle will shift my energy to a better place, but sometimes, I need a little more than that. A recent meditation created by Katie Krimitsos of the Women’s Meditation Network has helped me tremendously. It’s only 10 minutes long, so you can listen to it at just about any point in your day when you feel the need to shift your energy. Click here to access the Choose More Love Meditation.

I encourage you to check out all of the meditations offered on Katie’s website. They’ve been sanity savers for me these last few months.

What helps you shift your energy from fear to love?

We’ve all been stressed and anxious for a very long time, and we just made it through what was arguably one of the most exhausting weeks in US history. We’ll need to remember to be kind to each other in the coming days and weeks and months, because despite our differences, even if they seem extreme, we are all human beings. It’s time to focus on peace and healing.Continue Reading

Sunday Quotes: Chaos and Stillness

It’s hard to maintain one’s center when the world around us is getting more insane every day. Today, I’d like to share something Mitra Rahbar, a spiritual teacher, healer and poet, posted on Facebook the other day.  I printed it out, because I find that I need to be reminded to disconnect from the madness when I find that my anxiety is edging off the charts.Continue Reading

Sunday Quotes: Don’t Give Up

If I had a dollar for every meme I’ve seen about 2020 being the worst year ever, I’d be starting to accumulate a small fortune. Some of them are wickedly funny, but while I’ve been guilty of sharing some of the better ones on social media, I’m starting to think that maybe we need to change our thinking about this year.
