My recent intuitive reports made a few things clear: #1  I need to stay in the physical (get out of my head and into my  body) and #2: I need to be with people.  In particular, I need to care about others more than myself.  Yeah. . .  The akashic records are straight-up honest like that!

So, I’ve been trying more to put others first.  I’ve tried to give from the heart.  However, I’ve noticed that I often have to force myself.  And this has frustrated me.  I’ve seen how others give so selflessly, so easily.  I want to be one of those people.

Today I realized an area of my life where I am beginning to give in that way.  Being a metaphysics teacher.  My heart opens every time I am with my students.  I always experience such a great love for them, a joy in teaching them.  Today I called them to see how their week had been.  And I loved that, too — and I’ve learned so much from them!  So, I know that at least in this area, I know what I am doing.  Despite my confusion along my life’s path — this is part of my life’s purpose.  I am grateful.

The best part of this is that now I know how it feels.  I have tasted selfless love.  (I’ve received it plenty, but it feels good to be on the other side!)  Opening my arms, I allow myself to step into the loving arms of the universe. . . Wishing all of you love, and the joy of giving and receiving.

On top of the world

Understanding what it all means

In the moment



At Peace


At war within



Lost in my head

Confused and scattered

At the bottom of the pit


In just one day!

Gratitude is key.  It is the magic switch that can bring joy from despair.  It turns frustration and fear into peace and understanding.

I am grateful for spiritual focus sessions.  I received my Atlantean report this past weekend.  It was not what I expected — my reports never are! — and it was a wonderful weekend.  I went on three spiritual focus sessions this summer, and I see a common thread between all three.  All three express the importance of the physical, in remaining grounded and being connected through physical experiences.  Today I reread Dr. Laurel’s book Concentration during book club and got the same reminder.  How often are you fully involved in your experiences?  Do you use all of your senses to experience the present moment?  Or are you living in your head, removed from the opportunities in front of you?

I am grateful for reminders to keep my attention in the present.  Everything I experience is reminding me to be present-minded.  This morning I had another great conversation with my life purpose coach, Cindy Dove.  I kept resisting the direction she was taking today but ended the conversation so relieved that I almost cried!  I saw that I was sabotaging my progress with my thoughts again.  I was worried about years into the future without fully allowing and experiencing the present.  I was berating myself for not being on the “perfect life path” and had forgotten all of the potential opportunities for growth in my current experiences.  Romantic imaginings can lead to confusion and devastation.  What is reality?  By placing our attention on the moment, we can know truth.

I am so grateful for people! I have a new morning bike buddy who lives just a mile or two from my house!  We’ve met up because of a strong desire I had to include people more in my life.  This has also led to me joining the Plainfield BNI group to learn more about networking and supporting small businesses and also to educational activity visits at the Joliet Public Library.  Today was a day full of people, starting with a morning bike ride, continuing with a BNI meeting and library visit, and culminating in a delightful dinner with my family and an insightful book club.

I am grateful for faith, hope, and joy.  I am continually reminded that there are two sides to every perspective (at least!).  It is so easy to flip back and forth between extremes.  All it takes is a little present-mindedness and appreciation to get my thoughts back on track, to see the world as it is, right here, right now.  There is beauty without.  There is beauty within.  I just need to stop, be still, and receive it.

I didn’t have the will this morning.  I couldn’t recall my dreams.  I could have.  They were on the tip of my consciousness, but I let them go. :-(  Had a dream recently about computer games/video games.  I feel this symbol and everything else in my life is pointing to my mind being overly cluttered.

I will be disappearing again for the next 4 days because I’m going to one more Spiritual Focus Session this summer — Atlantis!  I will be learning about thousands and thousands of years ago when my soul first became entrapped in my body.  Very exciting!  I’m still trying to figure out what questions I want to ask.  (More to follow.)

And finally, I am branching out!  I am now also an author on Lifehack!  So, please check out my articles:

11 Small Things Anyone (Including You!) Can Do to Make the World Better


Have a wonderful day and weekend!

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

I’ve heard so many personal stories lately of synchronicities.  It’s enough to give me goosebumps!  It’s neat when you hear it from another person —  they are giving you a summary of all the signs, minus all of the distracting, unrelated stuff along the way.  It’s a reminder to keep alert, keep still.  Keep your eyes (and eye!)  open after you set that goal, after you project your desires to the universe.  Your answer, the completion of your creation may come from anywhere, in any form!

Do you have a recent synchronistic experience?  (An amazing aligning of your experiences that matches your plans and desires?)  Please share below!

I was looking for a parapsychology/graphology club meetup that I’d visited some months ago when my classmate had given a metaphysics lecture there.  I remembered that they met the first Friday of the month at the Panera right by my house, so I checked it out today.  Pretty much no parapsychology people today, but the graphology club was there.  Brian went with, and we learned a bit about handwriting analysis and the history  of the group, and then they analyzed our handwriting samples to see if Brian and I were a match.  (Turns out we’ll be fine.  Phew! :-))

My favorite parts of the analysis were 1) When they identified that I would not be the type to want to sit behind a desk; I would want to be mobile and 2) When they said Brian was the type who needed some time to himself, and I was the type who wanted a lot of activity.  (Yes and Yes!)  Somehow that gave me a bit of a perspective on things, helped me understand why we keep butting heads — him wanting to stay home and me wanting to be out.  Not sure yet how to compromise on #2.  As they analyzed — I can be pretty stubborn!  What has ended up happening has been that I’ve been out quite a bit, and he’s been home quite a bit.  This seemed like the perfect solution to me,  but has not been ideal for him. (It’s a process.)

It was funny and cute the way they asked us if we were still going to stay together after what we’d learned about each other, when really — we’ve been together so long that it’s pretty much as if we’re already married. . .

So, as much as I was hoping for more parapsychology, I do also enjoy any kind of personality analysis.  Brian and I both had a good time, and I plan to check out some of their future meetups.
