Moving Though It

“We are not meant to stay wounded. We are supposed to move through our tragedies and challenges and to help each other move through the many painful episodes of our lives. By remaining stuck in the power of our wounds, we block our own transformation. We overlook the greater gifts inherent in our wounds –Continue reading “Moving Though It”

Gifts

‘Gifts’ are one of those malleable concepts that may take time for us to personally realize because sometimes they may seem more like curses. At first our natural talents or proclivities may seem intrusive to us or even unwanted, or perhaps on a positive side they seem mystical or surreal in a sense, but notContinue reading “Gifts”

Be Soft

“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.”  Kurt Vonnegut I started to say that I don’t thinkContinue reading “Be Soft”

Trauma Survivors All

As have many before me, I’ve been through personal trauma so I would never minimize anyone’s trauma experience. But when I saw this graphic, I reacted strongly to it—especially the “…We’ve had to fight for our ability to think clearly and know who we are….” For me that is SO true. I think a ‘survivor’Continue reading “Trauma Survivors All”

Secrets

Hey, who doesn’t have secrets? There are secrets that we keep from others—even secrets we keep from ourselves about our own lives. You can claim to not keep ANY secrets from others (or even from your conscious self), but I’m pretty sure you have something deeply stashed somewhere that you aren’t comfortable sharing or evenContinue reading “Secrets”

Living In an Inverse World

As the graphic above describes: Welcome to the inverse logic of an inverse world that we all currently inhabit. What I’ve noticed lately, amidst all the daily acrimony and carnage, is that if there is one thing that this chaotic time is offering to us, it is a much closer examination of our most unquestionedContinue reading “Living In an Inverse World”

Believing What We Want to Believe

“Since we cannot change reality, let us change the eyes that see reality” ~ Nikos Kazantzakis      Earthschool Harmony *** Reality is often a reflection of our inner beliefs about the world around us: Beliefs about ourselves—like WHO we are, WHY we are here—beliefs about our perceived tasks in the world—including our own sense of purposeContinue reading “Believing What We Want to Believe”

Chaos and Cosmos

I’m not certain that what I say on this subject will be of any value to others, but I should at least attempt to clarify what I’ve been personally feeling lately, as I assume that if I am experiencing these feelings, then it’s likely that others are as well. Let’s look at Jung’s statement above”Continue reading “Chaos and Cosmos”

Irrational Logic

Perhaps the world makes sense in some perverse way. Or perhaps it doesn’t. But most of us believe that it MUST make some type of sense for us to continue to live comfortably within it. Because if the world made NO sense, then wouldn’t that make us as senseless and purposeless as the world aroundContinue reading “Irrational Logic”

Something New

“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.” – Eckhart Tolle  Love the image. Think the artist is L. Roche, and hope s/he doesn’t mind my sharing it here so others can appreciate its jewel-like beauty. As forContinue reading “Something New”

‘Meaning’ Is An Internal Experience

Again, I’m just sharing a good source of info and inspiration. The online company “Sounds True,” founded by Tami Simon, is a great source of both. Here she is interviewing one of my favorite Jungians: Dr. James Hollis, whose focus is always on finding more ‘meaning’ in our lives. It is well worth listening to,Continue reading “‘Meaning’ Is An Internal Experience”

The Gray-Scale Zone

Over the last 25 years, I’ve been trained in many healing modalities—many techniques used to help facilitate a client’s progress during their own personal healing journey. In other words: I know ‘stuff.’  I can do ‘stuff.’ My more spiritual work began with the Japanese energy-therapy practice of REIKI.  Then I received training in Karuna REIKIContinue reading “The Gray-Scale Zone”
