I used to have a bucket list of things I wanted to do and places I wanted to go, but my bucket list has changed. It now contains three entries:
Surrender to God’s Will
Live in the Present Moment
How can we use relationships as a path to enlightenment? The answer may be in how we handle conflicts when they arise. Is the answer to give in to the other person? Is it to hold fast to your beliefs? Is it to negotiate? The answer may be all of the above depending on the situation. The first step, though, and the purpose of this blog is to identify the role of your ego.
How do you value yourself and your partner in a relationship? Do you feel that you support each other or do you feel spent? This was the subject of a vision/message that Continue reading
We all want peace—inner peace, outer peace, world peace. I can’t tell you exactly how to achieve these states, but I can share with you what I am taught by Spirit. The first time St. Thérèse of Lisieux appeared to me she had this to say about peace:
It is time to craft your spiritual home—a metaphorical tower to God. It is not a home that gets enclosed by doors and windows, walls and a roof. It’s a skyscraper that you keep building—around and up, around and up. As you build it you also get to explore and play on it. No part is ever closed off to you. It’s metaphorical because you don’t need a tower to reach God. God is in every facet of the building process.
I heard God say to a client: Don’t let your sight blur My Vision. This one little sentence is loaded with meaning.

I heard God say: You are a child of God. He surrounds you and He is in you. Rest in this knowledge that you and He are one. There are no mistakes, there are no buts—there is just this clarity of being. You being Him and Him being you. And you are being asked just to accept that with no questions, no buts.
I heard in a session recently: All your anger disappears with the words ‘I forgive’ so if that resonates with you, you can silently forgive whomever in your life you need to forgive just by putting that thought out into the cosmos. The deeper that ‘I forgive’ is—the more that it’s from your heart not your head—the deeper the release of the feeling of injustice.
Shamanic traditions believe that we should pay attention to animals that appear to us repeatedly as they are carrying special messages for us. This was in the back of my mind when hummingbirds kept reappearing in my herb garden. According to Ted Andrews in Animal Speak, hummingbirds remind us that joy is an essential element of Continue reading
I tend to resist surrendering to Divine will because, on the one hand, we are told God is loving, and on the other we’ve heard stories like the one about Him asking Abraham to sacrifice his son. So which is He, and why would we risk our future with one as Continue reading
