Service Is An Act of Love

Service. What is it and why bother? I seriously never hear this word from people any more. It’s as if it doesn’t even exist. There’s lots of talk about doing what you love, living in the present moment, and enjoying the now and the gifts we have. There’s talk of manifesting stuff we want. And there’s some discussion around sharing what’s…

Loving Your Inner Critic
Dear me, I choose a new inner voice...

Loving Your Inner Critic

Do you know your inner critic? The inner critic is that voice in your mind that tells you the irrational, fear-provoking thoughts that you’ve been rehearsing much of your life. This inner critic can shake your foundation with statements such as: “You can’t do that!” “That’s too scary. Better not go!” “You’re not lovable!” “Shut up! You don’t know what…

Silence is golden

The Portuguese Man O'War has no propulsion system of its own. Its top looks like a Portuguese war helmet. It moves with the flow of the ocean. It eats what comes into its path. It's the perfect zen master of the sea, powerful and silent, floating freely. I saw a few of these last week while kayaking among the mangroves…

Feeling Feelings? The Plight of Empaths

Because many Reiki practitioners are empaths, a common discussion among practitioners revolves around the suffering that is felt when a friend or client has an illness or is going through a situation that seems sad. Events Can't Be Judged As an empath, I always try to remember that what others are experiencing is not random and cruel. I have found,…

What Holds You Back Isn’t Real
Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It's a way of entering in two the quiet that's already there.

What Holds You Back Isn’t Real

We tend to see yogis, lamas, and other spiritual leaders as being in a class all their own. “That level of spirituality is unattainable for me!,” we may think. We may feel “less than” and unworthy. We lament, “For God’s sake, the sheer amount of work involved to get there must be an insurmountable amount of sweat and sacrifice!” We…

Incapable
Enjoy your vacation unless you're incapable of enjoying a vacation.

Incapable

Hello Anxiety, My Old Partner I awoke this morning with a pain in my upper belly. I am on vacation with a friend, about to discover the joys of Sedona. I have no apparent worries, nothing I have to do, nowhere I have to go! Yet, I awoke with this pain. Diving into the pain, I realized it was linked…

Acceptance — A Gift from the Universe

What if you accepted everything that came your way as if it were a gift from the Universe? What would your life look like, if you made this your daily practice? Imagine being thankful for the cold you got, that slowed you down enough so that you could rest. Imagine responding to a diagnosis of illness with a palpable peace.…

Eye of the Storm

  We frequently find ourselves in the midst of an emotional storm. It can be through our own doing, or other people’s dramas that affect us. I’m going through one right now. Cleaning up a hoarder’s house is a disgustingly horrible task. Due to a death in the family, we find ourselves cleaning up the mess amassed over years of…

All You Need Is Love

All You Need is LOVE!

What is Love? We expect that with our loved ones, we’d have deep, warm and fuzzy feelings coming from mutual unconditional acceptance and preference for each other. When those feelings are absent from our hearts, we may question if we truly love them. However, by that definition, we may not love very many, except perhaps our immediate families and cute…
