Blogs / Muses

Everyday moments that puzzle us or catch our attention hold the potential to show us something about ourselves, to inform and enlighten us.

I have been exploring these moments from my own life through my blog posts (previously called Muses) for over five years. Spiritual lessons have been taught to me through a myriad of sources including: spider webs, cloudy days, my kitchen renovation, and getting lost driving to the airport.

Let’s identify together the little and big things that speak to us in our day-to-day lives. Read my posts, tell me your thoughts, share your experiences with other readers. Let’s create a spirited life, one moment at a time.

Thankfulness & Gratitude

Attitude of gratitude may be an over-used phrase, but it’s such a catchy one that it bears repeating. When we cultivate an attitude, we ultimately develop a practice, and practicing gratitude and thankfulness has been shown to improve the quality of our health and sense of well-being. It’s well worth the effort! Thanksgiving’s focus on… [Read More]

Autumnal Equinox Blessing 2020

We are through the portal…Summer is behind us and Fall is at our feet. May we step with consciousness and understanding into this new season, aware that our enthusiasm will wax and wane, as the moon does through her cycles. Given the challenges of our planet, our country, our own neighborhoods, we ask for patience… [Read More]

Spiral Energies Re-Opens for In-Person Treatments!

As of September 1, 2020, I am re-opening my healing practice for in-person treatments.

Wait. Don’t Wait.

A while back, I had a strong feeling that the spirit of my mother (who died nearly twenty years ago) wanted to give me a message. Sitting quietly, I connected with her. I barely got my question asked, “Mom, is there something you want to tell me?” before I heard: “Don’t wait to enjoy your… [Read More]

A Blessing for Summer 2020

We step with enthusiasm into the new season. Spring’s intensities and challenges were so difficult…we appreciate the purification of summer’s sunshine and thunderstorms to cleanse our energy fields. Yet, as we stand in truth, we know that challenges remain and we trust our Highest Self to bring the courage we need to carry on, to transform,… [Read More]

How Are You Doing?

Today’s world is challenging and inspiring us – all at the same time. My emotions and energy have run the gamut from fear to courage, shakiness to steadiness, vagueness to engagement. How are you doing? Ask yourself that question now. Where is your energy? Where are your emotions? Where do you feel them in your… [Read More]

Spring Equinox Blessing 2020

Dear friends, my thanks to the 30 people who joined me last week for our virtual Equinox Ritual. What follows is the blessing I’ve created using the Angel Card qualities we drew during that Ritual: Presence, Respect, Release, Peace, Light, Tenderness, Vision, and Wisdom. Additionally, I have incorporated several more qualities to enrich this blessing.… [Read More]

Hearts and Love

‘Tis the season…hearts, hearts, and more hearts. Valentine’s Day is upon us. I walk in CVS and am greeted with representations of hearts – perfect hearts – symmetrical, red, shiny hearts that decorate the store, the packages of candy, and the racks of valentine’s cards. I generally hold Valentine’s Day pretty lightly. But, beyond my… [Read More]

Winter Solstice Blessing

We stand with expectancy, calling in grace as we cross the threshold into winter’s season of quiet and introspection. Though winter turns us inwards, we do not contract our energy; we use our sense of adventure and exploration to dive into the inner expansiveness, the depth and richness of our spirit. We discover our inner… [Read More]

The Turn of the Year, the Balance of the Seasons

During the night of the storm, I come downstairs. The lighting is different than usual. I sense brightness even though the living room lights are off and the shades are drawn. The falling snow, accumulating on the tree branches, the ground the streets, has lit up the world, casting a glow everywhere. Nature’s balance is… [Read More]
