Rivers of Change

Sunset over a River in Vermont

“Life is always changing; we are always changing.  We live in a river of change, and a river of change lives within us.  Every day we’re given a choice. We can relax and float in the direction that the water flows, or we can swim hard against it.  If we go with the river, the energty of a thousand mountain streams will be with us, filling our hearts with courage and enthusiasm.  If we resist the river, we will feel rankled and tired as we tread water, stuck in the same place.”  ~Elizabeth Lesser, Broken Open


It’s all about the heart.

Opening to the waves of divine LOVE that are flowing through the universe right now, it is time to remind yourself to tap into this flow.  It can be easy to fall back into the old ways, and to go into default mode- as we have lived that way for so long. It is important to stay vigilant about how you feel in any given moment.    

With the recent planetary alignments, shifting consciousness, a new surge of hope, and countless other factors- what’s an ordinary human to do?

There is no question now that we are in the midst of radical changes.  We are feeling them on an individual level, in community and on a universal scale.  Humanity is riding the wave of change and our task is to be aware.  Even when life gets intense, the best we can do for ourselves is to remain aware of our conditioned responses to what goes on around us.  This awareness is key and will lead us to make conscious choices to set ourselves free from the old- the old that keeps us bogged down. 

“Awareness leads directly to understanding.”  A dear friend shared this with me and it is true.  Although, sometimes I try to control my life and certain aspects of it, when I truly let go of the drama and expectations, I do find peace. This letting go is difficult for so many- but we know that holding on simply makes it more difficult.  Learning to flow on the path leads toward freedom. The key is to REMEMBER.  Remember to Breathe, to Love yourself, to be peaceful and to just BE. 

We are purging so much old stuff right now- so keep reminding yourself that this is a release.  Try not to get caught in the releasing energy- simply allow it to pass.  We move forward as One!  Together, let’s let our lights shine as we ride on the Rivers of Change!

Peace and Blessings to all,

Conscious Eating- The Divine Dining Method
Conscious Eating- Mindful Ways to Navigate the Holiday Season

“Be one with the food”…that is what I always tell my children, when they are shoveling their dinner.  Conscious eating is about  being completely aware of the act of eating. It is not the shoveling or mindless stuffing of one’s face.  When we are fully engaged in the process of eating- we can deeply experience the tastes, sensations, and aromas.  When you bring a Conscious Eating habit to your life; you’ll be kinder to your digestive system and you won’t overeat.  You’ll be in tune with your body and stop when full.  If you aren’t ready to make the whole transformation of your eating habits, then try it with a snack or  a light meal.  Food can become a spiritual experience, when it is approached from a mindful perspective.

I had plans.... glorious plans...

Then I experienced the cosmic 2x4. That's my term for a course correction in life.

For me, it was a freaky fall, landing on my elbow, bruising a few ribs has set my plans on hold for now.

To be truthful, I've had some  'why me?' moments where I question the higher purpose.  I've questioned what I could have done differently. Yet, the answer I get is "shit happens" and sometimes we don't know the higher purpose.
