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.

Transforming the Trap…a la Groundhog Day

I have loved the movie Groundhog Day since it came out in 1993. This movie has a following – it’s still played in marathon showings yearly on February 2nd – and I can see its appeal. Bill Murray plays the lead role, and Murray’s dry, sardonic wit gives the movie the perfect combination of sharp-edged… [Read More]

A Blessing for the Turning of the Year

May you know patience and kindness, grace and laughter. May your hearts open and your connection into the Divine Within deepen with every breath. Together, may we create Right Balance with our blessed planet, her waters, air, earth, sun, moon, stars, galaxies and all her living beings. May we honor our Oneness while respecting our individuation. Blessings… [Read More]

C’mon, Inner Peace…

This blog was first published in January, 2014 It was the Christmas countdown…two days to the holiday, but I could tell I needed three in order to be ready. With so much to do, I wanted to be as grounded as possible. I wanted to be sure to meditate that day – a practice I’d… [Read More]

Transcending Habitual Discontent

Psychologist, author, and personal growth coach Gay Hendricks tells of a life-changing revelation in his book, The Big Leap. One day, Dr. Hendricks came back to his office feeling good after an enjoyable lunch and work discussion with a colleague. Pausing for a moment, Hendricks’s realization expanded – not only was work going well, so… [Read More]

Yes, It Was Worth It

During my career as a musician, I was intrigued with eurhythmics, a modality that teaches musical rhythm and expression through movement. Simply put, it helps musicians embody music. I first learned eurhythmics during my undergraduate years and it transformed my classically trained, intellectual approach to music into a more felt-sense, expressive one. Through its sometimes… [Read More]

Godspeed

As a child, it was with great excitement that I received a wood-cased metronome from my piano teacher. She showed me how to wind it up, how to set the weight higher or lower on the metal post so that it would swing back and forth, faster and slower. “Tick, tock, tick, tock,” it whispered… [Read More]

Decorative Clouds

Do you watch the clouds? I do. Looking up at the sky, I feel a connection with “above,” which simultaneously helps me feel grounded with the earth I’m standing on “below.” My eyes drift up as I walk around my neighborhood, drive in my car, sit on the shore at the ocean. I love the… [Read More]

It’s Never Too Late…for Some Things

What am I learning? What am I experiencing that is helping me grow spiritually? These are the questions I ask myself on a regular basis. They’re the starting points for my creative process when I write my monthly blogs and weekly Wednesday’s Wisdom posts, as I work out radio show content and develop workshops. Last… [Read More]

Maybe You Don’t Have to Set Aside Time…

Years ago, when my interest in spirituality deepened, I became intrigued with wanting to discover who I really was in my Essence, in my Highest Self. I wanted to read, meditate, contemplate. Seeking to create a spiritual life, I was advised over and over again to set aside time…time to meditate, to write in a… [Read More]

Crossing the Fa Bridge

Judith was explaining how she creates her own art and teaches her students to create theirs. “I’ve learned to recognize the point in a creative endeavor when an obstacle is first encountered. Prior to that moment, the project is flowing well; the artist is full of enthusiasm. But, inevitably, the artist hits what the early… [Read More]
