    Lessons from the Kitchen

    One of my favorite things about our new house (besides everything!) is the luxury of having a nice big open kitchen. I LOVE to cook, and bake, and get creative with food. The washing and chopping is a Meditation. The interplay of textures and flavors is Alchemy. The successes are glorious, and failures? Often quite spectacular. Life lessons abound.

    It’s Father’s Day here in the US, and along with days like this that celebrate a parent can often come mixed emotions and some weird feelings. Especially if your father has passed on. Especially if you never knew your father. Especially if your relationship with the man was/is strained, challenging, complicated. Even if your relationship is/was awesome. If you had/have a less than perfect relationship with your father, you might be tempted to brush this off as any other day.

    The Self-Care Sessions: Part 2 DEAR PAIN

    Loves, up next in my series of gentle meditations for/prayers to my body, I have a word with Pain: “Dear Pain, Thank You for teaching me to listen to my body. Please forgive me for ignoring you and trying to numb you away. I am listening now. I love you.” Pain is just another wise teacher that we encounter throughout this Life. Often misunderstood, manipulated, feared, even hated- but ever valuable to our brief experience on this planet. Take the time to follow your pain to its root, deep in the soul, and ask, “What would you have me learn?…

    #MondayMantra Ready!

    Today’s mantra is a positive affirmation and powerful reminder that we are ready for the next experience, the next adventure, the next lesson, the next step, whenever it is presented to us.  Even when we feel unprepared. Even when we feel nervous. Even when we feel afraid. Why? Because even when we “fail” at that next whatever, we are still learning, still growing, still awakening to the discovery of who we are and the strength within. That is where the healing happens. That is what we are ready for! Mantra: Yes, I am Ready for This!
