Grounding Myself

As I mentioned in my last post, I have been super-anxious with all of the Coronavirus information swirling around, the uncertainty of what will happen from day to day making it hard for me to concentrate on anything but the news. After five days of feeling my nerves stretching thin from all of that frenetic […]

The New Year

2020 definitely started out with a bang for me, as you might be able to tell since I haven’t even started writing a New Year’s post until February. After a very enthusiastic start, I was shut down by a virus that sidelined me for three weeks as it slowly turned into pneumonia. Thankfully, I was […]

THE Voice

What an amazing time of year. I can’t get over how magical everything has seemed lately, but perhaps that is less about the time of the year than about the journey that I am moving into. Whatever is causing this feeling of wonder, I hope it doesn’t stop. It is a very blessed thing, being […]

I Don’t Want to Grind

I got a download from the universe one night recently. I was lying in bed at 3:00 in the morning, trying desperately to go back to sleep. These images went through my mind of a future that I have tried to envision for myself but have had a very hard time with. It was like […]

Deschooling the Mind

Not from this last full moon, but still beautifully out of focus Last year, I homeschooled my Piscean daughter. It was an interesting experience brought about by a lot of school stress. Before beginning the homeschooling process I had learned about a process called deschooling, and we actively used this process through the majority of […]

In This Present Moment…

There’s a trick I do any time I am stressed, or when my mind is racing in the middle of the night and I don’t want to get up to make some chamomile tea (which is pretty much every time it happens). It’s pretty simple, but it has had a profound impact on how I […]
