Prayer for Comfort Amidst Loss


A prayer of surrender gently opens the way to new understandings, which offer the soul a path to healing. We are not condemned to labor uphill daily only to tumble down again each night. So much pain comes from perceiving our losses only through the lens of our personal world. While it’s vital to acknowledge … Continue reading

COVID-19 Symbolism


COVID-19 Symbolism I am both a detail and big-picture person. The more upsetting the “now,” the more helpful it is to pull back and perceive from a greater distance. Deeper meaning is revealed in the long view. Here’s what I’m seeing so far. Coronavirus can be a clarifying influence for humanity if we will allow … Continue reading

Misdiagnosed Despite a CDC-Positive Test: My Lyme Disease Story


Originally posted on Miss Diagnoses:
Since Lyme awareness month is about to end, I thought I would tell a story about what can happen when there’s no Lyme awareness. In 2009, I hobbled into the office of an Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) doctor who was a famous fibromyalgia and ME specialist. I had…

Stealth Microbes and the Spiritual Path


Life perpetually presents spiritual journeys, whether we are willing to travel or not. The form of the journey doesn’t matter, even when we’re tempted to reject the current form! Today I cultivate gratitude for my journey—this leg and the big, messy whole—as I take my morning supplements. I am grateful for this Divine Earth Medicine, … Continue reading

Healing Loss: Election Edition


Imagine that you’ve lived your life in the seat of democracy, a shining beacon of ideals, progressive values and freedom that literally draws the world. And picture a slow-motion carnival of the absurd and outrageous, a grainy side show culminating in a presidential election with breath-taking results. Not only does the popular-vote-candidate-by-a-landslide not win, but … Continue reading

Open Heart Creativity


The magnificence of God’s extension lies within each of us, ready to manifest. Our only real choice is whether to allow it or block it. We begin to allow when we ask that the Will of Love be made manifest through us. But the day-to-day, moment-by-moment “choice switch” is at the heart. With open hearts, … Continue reading

Independence Day Indeed


Since the Course came through the Americans Helen Schucman and Bill Thetford, I wondered if Jesus included a special lesson for us on Independence Day.  He did: I want the peace of God. To say these words is nothing. But to mean these words is everything. If you could but mean them for just an … Continue reading

One Little Prayer: God’s Grace Is Enough


I have no cause for anger or for fear, for You surround me. And in every need that I perceive, Your grace suffices me.   (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 348) I have every reason to feel safe and abundant. All That Is exists only WITHIN God, which is inherently safe and need-less. While … Continue reading

Caregiver Crunch, Balance and Resilience


Caregiver Crunch Over the years of my practice I’ve heard many stories I would put in the category of “caregiver crunch.” Caregiver crunch is the over-tasked, over-scheduled, time-pressed, stressful life we experience when we simply have too much to do and can’t see a way around it. There is nothing on “the list” we feel … Continue reading

The Truth Will Set You Free by Michael Mirdad


The latest compact, efficient guidance from my favorite teacher of Christ Consciousness.  Like A Course in Miracles it’s simple, but not necessarily easy.  BUT, this is how to effect our own rebirth and live a life of mastery that reflects our soul plan for this earthly sojourn.  This is spirituality in action. The Truth Will … Continue reading
