Yesterday I discovered that I am not the only one moving in the direction of living my dream.  On the one hand, a comment like that almost deserves a “duh” response. On the other hand, this is someone that I know, who lives close by, and with whom I occasionally communicate: someone who has chosen …

December 27, 2009 4 Comments

I recently saw a post that suggested the use of intentions for the new year rather than resolutions or goals for the new year. I like that. I tend to believe intentions are a very powerful force.

Someone else’s blog post got to me. I have been discovered. I have been exposed. I am a….a….word-a-holic. There. It’s out. I have admitted that I have a problem with wordiness. My blog posts are WAY too long for most people to endure. Admitting I have a problem….that’s the first step to recovery, right?   …

One of the cool things I have learned during my BrainGym years has been the power of setting an intention before doing any type of “energy” work.

Making a Difference

My Number Three child has made a significant contribution to my source of writing material. That is because she is such a gift to me in so many ways. She is wired much differently than her sisters. It’s not wrong or bad. It is just different, and it will most likely prove to serve her in ways …
