When I was living in the cabin writing the February 29th page of Every Day Spirit, I was imagining this very Leap Day and feeling a prayer of gratitude in my heart for the precious extra 24 hours we've been given today. The precious extra 24 hours to live. The precious extra 24 hours to love. In honor of this gift of time, I share with you today's page in the daybook, marking the blessings of Leap Year 2020 in my heart - with you. May your day be especially blessed. LEAP YEAR
Hello my friends. Is it just me or does it sometimes feel like we're living in the middle of a big stress bomb? I know, you rely on me to be sunny, so what kind of way is that to start a blog post? Stay with me. The clouds part with a rainbow at the end... Back to the stress bomb. I do a lot of meditating, I don't dwell a lot on social media and I don't own a TV. In general, I'm pretty chill. But as I was scanning the news headlines on my phone this morning, I got a wave of s
Happy Valentine's Day my friends. I didn't plan to post today but a message came through me with such simplicity and clarity - and I felt it was meant to lift us up. Things have been pretty dark and twisty out there these days and our spirits could use some sweet lifting, right? From all outward appearances, our world is not steeped in love. The images we see and the voices we hear the loudest are often those of division and fear. But when we look again, through spiritual ey
It was a beautiful, sunny Florida day when she received the life-changing diagnosis that she was dreading. And she knew exactly what it meant. She had witnessed the slow, isolating journey as her mother, her only brother and her uncle became legally blind. Now, with the same condition, she knew all too well what lay ahead: no driving, no bird watching, no walking on the beach alone at sunrise. And the precious activity that was unthinkable to let go of - no reading her books.
All of humanity’s problems stem from one’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone. -Pascal As most of you know, I like to fly under the radar. YOU are the hero of my pages and my books. YOU are the focus of my work, my prayers and my blessings. I don't talk a lot about myself. I don’t do interviews, podcasts and accept very few talks. I like my peace. But as we enter the season of even more busyness (aka stress), it’s more important than ever that we move our spiritual pra
Welcome to a sweet soft moment of peace. I just had one of my own - and I'm here to tell you - it saved the day. If you, my friend, are also dipping down near the bottom of the well where there is less of you to give, or if stress has robbed you of your composure and perspective, or if you are waiting on a shipment of your new book and have no idea when it will arrive (hey - that's me!), remember that a calm connection is just a moment away. Really it is. We have an amazing b
No matter what you’ve done or left undone, no matter who you’ve hurt or who hurt you, no matter how it might seem like an exercise in pride and hubris—gently set down the self-judgment and remember that you are infinitely loved and magnificently beautiful just as you are. No excuses, no caveats, just love yourself in this very moment. Love lives right here. And this love within you will naturally radiate to everyone on your path. How beautiful is that? Yes, sweet friends, lov
