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.

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]

A Blessing for the Autumnal Equinox

As the day Surrenders its light to darkness, may we stay in Harmony and balance, in grace, in peace. We set our Intention to keep our Enthusiasm, retain the Spontaneity that Summer inspired, even as we Release ourselves into the Depths of Fall’s richness. Summer felt lighter, more Playful. We were Awakened each day with the invitation to take Risks, to explore,… [Read More]

Savor

My husband and I love peaches. Every growing season, we count the months until the local peaches come in. As soon as our friend Kenny from Bolton appears in his booth at the Belmont Farmer’s Market, we start buying peaches and eating them with great relish. We love peaches over cereal, with ice cream, in… [Read More]

In These Intense Times, What Can You Do?

These are intense times – unsetting, deeply concerning – and they are affecting us all. Through our root chakra, we are a part of our culture, and even though we may not identify consciously with the negative actions and philosophies that are permeating our lives, they are in our energy fields.   As one incident… [Read More]

A Blessing for Summer 2019

In the fullness of Summer’s light, may your Enthusiasm for life know no bounds. May we allow the Inspiration of the Divine to lead us, guide us, direct us to live with love and in the Authenticity of our Essence.   Play! Dance! Sing! Walk barefoot in the grass! Bring Spontaneity and Flexibility into your day. Enjoy the whimsy of… [Read More]

Could Your Spirit Use a Tune-Up?

  You take quiet time, reflect on your blessings, ask the Divine for support through your day. But sometimes, you still feel “off.” Why is that? Well, as I am fond of saying, we are in human form, after all. But more than that, we need only acknowledge the intense pace of our culture, the… [Read More]
