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.

Be it the weather temperature, your sleep amount, your food intake, your action/repose pace…The point that feels satisfying, enough but not overtaxing, just right is truly a sweet spot. One of my… [Read More]

On the Cusp…Three Ways to Step into the New Season Mindfully

As the Winter Solstice approaches, we anticipate her arrival, bringing our consciousness to the shift and change of the season. Through various practices, we honor and celebrate Nature’s beauty and gifts – the fiery setting of the sun, the white landscape of newly fallen snow, the crisp wind on our cheeks, the solid earth under… [Read More]

Thankfulness & Gratitude

Attitude of gratitude may be an over-used phrase, but it’s such a catchy one that it bears repeating.

It’s well worth the effort! Thanksgiving’s focus on… [Read More]

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]

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]
