Dream Big

The past few weeks have been filled with joy, blessings, and a lot of excitement.  It all began with a visit from my son, Steve whom I hadn’t seen in about a year.  I was excited to see him as well as to show him around the city of Santa Fe, the place I currently call home.  It didn’t take long for him to be in awe of the beauty that I cherish each day.  There was not a day during his visit that I didn’t hear, “I really like it here.”  Yes, this city has a way of captivating you.

Being in Service

"If I could give you information of my life, it would be to say,  I am so blessed with all the beautiful gifts God has shown me, the teachers sent to me to guide me back onto a path of being in service.  The more I am shown the more I realize, all that God does and I am filled with grace."  Sangeet

Release and Let Go

How often do you hear the words "just let it go" and find yourself going, if I knew how to do that, don't you think I would? If it was that easy, don't you think I would have, was always running through my mind. Then it it hit me....maybe I don't want to let it go. Maybe I like having the worry, or the sickness or all the possessions of my past go” and find yourself

Embrace your inner child

Healing your inner child is one of the most important things you can do for yourself.  Almost every one of us experienced some aspect of trauma as a child.  Trauma’s vary from having your favorite doll being taken to the trash without your consent, to your best friend moving away when you were five, to being told to shut-up, or to being physically, emotionally, spiritually or sexually abused.

Just because I am home, does not mean I am lonely

Around 8:30 tonight, my phone rang and the voice on the other end, says, are you busy?  I answered no and before saying anything else, I heard, can I come by, I am just around the corner.  I said sure.  Once my friend arrived, first words stated, were “it’s Friday night, what are you doing home, people will think you are lonely?  I started laughing and said, I am relaxing, and I am not lonely, but what does Friday night have to do with anything?  Deep inside, I already knew how they were going to answer, as I use to feel the same way.

Are you afraid to lose love?

Being in a relationship exposes areas of our vulnerability.  One thing, I have learned from clients, myself and watching others is that it is really difficult to tell the other person the truth until you face your fear of being afraid of losing them.  You have to surrender to the need for the other person to be there, the deep fear that you feel creeping in when you allow yourself to think about what your life would be like without them.  All of that fear needs to be gone.  Sit with the feeling that they are gone, experience the sadness, and the realization that you will still exist without them without breaking apart.

Is your childhood trauma...Still Alive?

One of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves is to go back and observe all the experiences in childhood that have impacted our lives.  Take a step back for a moment and see yourself as the child, with the perspective you have today as an adult, looking at each event, each experience, each moment with the understanding and compassion of your adult self.

Are expectations affecting your happiness?

In delving into emotions and their effect on our daily lives, the word disappointment kept popping up in conversations.  I would hear clients talking about disappointments, any time I would open social media, there would be some disappointed about this or that.  No matter where I looked, I would see the word disappointment.

Begin with listening.... to your heart

At the market this morning, I ran into someone I haven’t seen in a couple of years. After a quick catchup, I found myself in a conversation that lately has become familiar.  What is it about humans that we stay in relationships too long--- even when you know deep inside the person you’re married to, living with or dating isn’t right for you.

My answer to her was FEAR.

And one day she awoke

How often do you pay attention to your dreams?  For the past 10 or so years, I have had a dream journal that I write down different aspects of dreams that have stayed with me to reflect upon later.  It all began after attending a workshop on dream analysis based on Carl Jung’s work and has continued as I have studied and been immersed in mysticism, shamanism and other ancient ways.

Integrity- A Way of LIfe

Often, we live most of our lives with meanings from childhood all around us, "be a good girl", "to succeed you have to do or be this or that", "you have to work hard at everything" and many more. Through the years, you become all that conditioning and somewhere you have lost yourself. In time you will be challenging the image of who you have told you are and who others 'think' you should be. From experience, I will say, you will go to some dark places and be way off your path. Truthfully, you have lost your authentic self and the journey back depending on how long you wait, may bring along days of being uncomfortable.


 

Many our living a life based on the influences around them. In so many ways becoming sheep, following and becoming what others thought they should be. Deep inside there is a constant message of needing to do more, be better, find something new.... all leading to anger and self-loathing.

Living in the Present

When one has been doing deep inner healing work for a significant amount of time, ego, loves to pipe in and say, are you done yet?  I chuckle when I hear that voice as I have come to realize that healing is never done. There are more and more layers to uncover and if you think you are done…..the universe will come along and quickly alert you that no, you still have more to do.  For this to happen, you first have to be awake that there is even healing to do.
