What’s Your Sign-Off?

They say that we come here to teach the things we need to learn the most, and I couldn’t agree more with that. In my experience as a counselor, I’ve learned more lessons through my interactions with my clients than I would ever have if I were just bopping around in the world—and these are… Continue Reading →

Do You Have The Understanding?

The other night I had another spiritual experience (a moment where the hair on the back of my neck stood up and I could feel the divine nature of things). I was watching an HBO special called Vice, a documentary that included the Harlem Globetrotters. In it, they had been invited to North Korea and it was… Continue Reading →

The Time To Celebrate Is NOW!

One of the things I love about blogging for The Daily Love is that I get an opportunity every week to stop, take stock of my surroundings and what is happening in my world, and I get to share it with you all. Obviously, the season is upon us. In fact, in this week alone,… Continue Reading →

Make The Holidays What You Want Them To Be!

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what I want the holidays to be. In my earlier years, the month of December became a month of all around tension in our household. I am one of eight children and the span of ages ranges 20 years. This combination (and a tiny house in the valley)… Continue Reading →

Be Happy Anyway!

To begin today’s topic, I’d like to make sure I am clear about something here: normal is relative and there is no such thing as perfect. When my daughters were growing up, all they ever wanted was to be normal or to have things look perfect. They wanted their inside lives to match other people’s… Continue Reading →

On Death

  However, one of the things that inevitably comes up when we focus on what we have is the sneaking shadow of what we do not have. I think this element of this time of year is not necessarily a bad thing; it helps us reflect on the things that, while perhaps melancholy or somber,… Continue Reading →

Give Because You Mean It!

If you’re reading any blogs this holiday season, you’re probably inundated with messages about gratitude and giving. There’s probably nothing new I can offer you about these topics, other than reinforcing a significant component of this season:  authenticity. When I have exchanges with people, truthfully, I look most for evidence of their authenticity. If they… Continue Reading →

A Return To Nature

For the last decade or so (give or take), the self-help community has been lit ablaze with the word “abundance.” Everything is ‘think abundant thoughts,’ or ‘live abundantly.’ However, there’s just too much missing from the hype around this word. If I were new to this concept of manifesting abundance or feeling abundant, I’d be… Continue Reading →

MYOBW

This past week, one of my adult daughters relayed a story to me where she was experiencing tons of angst. In brief, two women that she works with have incredible tension between them, and one of these women happens to be her boss. As one of their colleagues, she relayed to me that she felt like she was caught… Continue Reading →

Less Daylight, More Reflection!

This time of year always makes me think about change. Everything around us is in transition from full, vibrant, explosive life, toward a recession of vibrancy. Fall is the season that encourages us to buckle down and push headlong into something new—both literally and figuratively. When the weather changes (at least in most parts of… Continue Reading →

Put Your Ego Where it Belongs!

The road toward seeking truth is an incredible journey filled with fantastic experiences, but it is also loaded with obstacles and moments of self deception.  No matter what tools or teachings we choose to focus on as we progress on our roads, we must remember that the ego loves to wait, in ambush, to appropriate… Continue Reading →

Generosity & Spirit!

Not long ago, I sat with a friend who is incredibly clever, funny, sensitive and able to see the world and the people in it with great empathy objectivity at understanding.  Something that always surprises me when we speak is her lack of judgment of others. Now this particular time, she was sharing with me… Continue Reading →
