Problem solving skills for kids (that keep everyone happy). October 28, 2013

It’s true what they say: our snot-nosed little angels come into our lives, bringing out the worst in us, so that we can be healed. Still, it’s embarrassing to admit, but at times, my ten-year-old son has me going loco. Sure, he’s just doing his job blaming and trying to get away with things, but […]

How to accept yourself as a good parent, and trust. October 27, 2013

The other day my husband and I discovered some candy stashed away in our son’s desk drawer. He knows he’s not allowed to keep candy in his room (which is obviously why he was hiding it). We dug a little more, and found a bunch of empty candy wrappers, some gum, and a few lollypops. […]

Learning to accept yourself: Your looks aren’t everything, sweet pea. October 27, 2013

Well, it looks like from now on I have to wear my glasses. I have been wearing contacts for forever, but one of the lenses really began irritating my eye. I tried everything—wetting solutions, allergy pills, and different brands of contacts. When none of those worked, I tried an expensive energy healing process and then […]

Get clarity by breathing in. October 27, 2013

I find that sometimes clarity lasts for a while, and sometimes it doesn’t. It all depends on what’s happening. The more attached we are to a particular belief—even when it doesn’t serve us—the harder it is to let it go. (I was a diehard vegetarian for years, until realizing that my body craved meat every […]

Learn to accept yourself: The antidote to fear. October 27, 2013

Have you ever noticed that whatever you are afraid of, rarely happens? Sure, the dog barked, but will it really bite? Still, we do it all the time—give away our power to an imaginary event, to an illusion. Personally, I try catching my reactionbefore I react. I don’t always succeed, but when I do I know […]

In her recent blog post about finding true happiness, Martha Beck wrote that you don’t have to know exactly how your ideal life should look, but that you only have to know what feels better and what feels worse.

Ain’t it the truth: fear can make us think anything—even that it is our intuition! I recently responded to a blog post about this in Spirituality and Health Magazine, and the writer, Eve Hogan reminded us that following our intuition empowers us to take action—and I’ll add, to get in touch with our passion, whereas fear paralyzes […]

Follow your heart, your intuition guides you step by step. October 27, 2013

Will Donnelly, an awesome blogger from Spirituality and Health Magazine, shared a funny story: a new age thinker died and went to heaven. Upon entering the pearly gates, he saw two signs directing him to his final destination. One said: “This way to God,” and another: “This way to a workshop to find God.” Out of […]
