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.

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]

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]

Undiluted Potential – The Blessing of a New Season

Last week’s Spring Vernal Equinox occurred Wednesday, March 20that 5:58 PM and was followed a few hours later by a Full Moon at 9:34 PM. The auspicious proximity of these events prompted me to draw a Rune (an ancient Nordic divination system) for wisdom and insight for the coming Spring season. The Rune that emerged… [Read More]

Oh, those glorious days of perfect, balanced energy! You know them – they’re the days when it seems like you hit all the lights green as you drive along, the groceries you want to buy are miraculously on sale, your work is meaningful and satisfying, your relationships feel connected by good will and kindness. How… [Read More]

Enter the New Year 2019

This blessing was created from the qualities of the angel cards (italicized) picked by the participants in our Winter Solstice Ritual on December 21, 2018. The qualities represent Spirit’s messages to us as we step into the new year. Happy Solstice and Happy New Year to all. As the Light increases from day to day, may… [Read More]

Autumnal Equinox Blessing

As the days shorten and the light grows softer, may we connect even more deeply with the Light that shines within us. Standing in Harmony with our Selves and with each other, we appreciate the community of Sisterhood and Brotherhood that is made up of the people surrounding us and in other nations around the planet. The Enthusiasm of summer… [Read More]
