THERE'S SOMETHING VERY SEDUCTIVE ABOUT SEASONAL TRIGGERS
When the leaves fall, I think of running. I used to run 4 km every day. In the morning. On a track.
I was a student at SFU back then, doing my undergrad work. I lived on campus, worked part-time on campus, and ran.CONTINUE READING
THAT'S WHY THERE'S A GREAT CALLING FOR COLLECTIVES RIGHT NOW
I'm thinking that this stage of the global pandemic will not last forever. But it will change things forever.
Our responsibilities are personal and global. We can't pretend it doesn't matter, it doesn't count, no one is looking. We're all connected.CONTINUE READING
I RESPONDED LIKE THE SHEETS ON THE CLOTHESLINE
Last week, a client told me that expanding her reality was really just denying the facts.
Yep, that would appear accurate from the three-dimensional physical-only reality perspective. I mean, how can you deny the physical reality? You can’t and you shouldn’t.CONTINUE READING
THE FALL, FROM AN ASTROLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE
I woke up and started doing my happy fall dance today. Don't you love fall?
But this fall is as strange and new as the summer and spring were. So, we need to tread carefully into this new season. And when we can’t see the future clearly, we can still look up - to the planets - for their guidance and influence.CONTINUE READING
I LOST MY NECKLACE YESTERDAY
It was my new one - a shiny sparkly dragonfly necklace from my bestie. It wasn’t even 2 weeks old yet.
You know the feeling when you reach your hand to your throat to fiddle with your necklace and you come up empty-handed? Right. And she was right beside me when I did this and asked me what was wrong.CONTINUE READING
2020 IS NOT OVER YET, NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU MAY WANT TO TURN THAT CALENDAR PAGE
It's the last weekend of August and you're trying to be respectful of the pandemic and stay safe. I get it. Staycation it is. But staying close to home doesn't mean staying indoors.CONTINUE READING
YOU'RE IN THE ENERGETIC OF CHANGE, RIGHT NOW
How ya doin'? If you haven't had a decent exhale in a few days, take a moment right now.
Isn't that better? 🙂
I had a virtual meet-up this morning with a group of bright and connected women who know that this global interruption is more than something to wait out.CONTINUE READING
IT WAS DEFINITELY ABOUT HUGGING
Someone stepped forward to hug me yesterday and I froze. Then I jumped back.
I didn't step back. I literally jumped.
Now I know that in the Age of COVID, we don't hug. And the person attempting to hug me knows that too...CONTINUE READING
I WALKED INTO THE BATHROOM WITH MY GLASSES ON
I didn't want to know what that sticky stuff was, so I walked past it day after day.
It was under the bathroom vanity - you know, those drawers you keep everything in.
One of mine is literally a junk drawer...CONTINUE READING
AND SUDDENLY ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE
So, it appears that a gang of raccoons had a party at my place last night. There's evidence everywhere.
Tied-down lounge chair cushions were ripped off the chairs. A metal and rock statue I call 'Kevin' was used to bowl through the garden (it didn't survive). My pond plants were pulled up and tossed around like an Italian chef tossing pizza dough.
The list goes on.CONTINUE READING
I AM NO LONGER THE INVISIBLE WOMAN
I had a playdate with my soul sister Cheryl, today, in my own hood. In the 25 years I've been friends with Cheryl, that's never ever happened.
Since moving to the coast 11 years ago, anyone who knows me knows I don't like to leave here, so if they wanted to see me, they pretty well had to take the ferry. And even then, I wasn't too keen.CONTINUE READING
IT HAD BEEN HIS IDEA TO PLANT SAGE
It's ThrowbackThursday and I'm thinking of a picture of my son, Connor when he was a little muffin top.
He wanted to plant an herb garden because he wanted to dig and hoe and water just like mommy. I guided him to plant his own garden so he could connect with the energy of life through creation and care. I knew him to be sensitive and wanted to cultivate that quality. I remember his favourite part of gardening was "cutting some (s)prigs for mommy when she cooked".
I'M FEELING SENTIMENTAL
I gave birth during a winter blizzard. Not IN a winter blizzard. But the blizzard was responsible for the black ice on the road when I lost control of the Honda Civic that night.
As my white hatchback started sliding sideways down down down the steep slope off the side of the road, the snow picked up and all I could see in the dark was my headlights illuminating the horizontally falling snow. That was my perspective.CONTINUE READING
VEGANS CAN EAT SUGAR, RIGHT?
I was a vegetarian when I met my husband, Blake, 12 years ago. Actually I was a pescatarian. (That's someone who eats fish).
I had been a vegan for many years (vegans can eat sugar, right?) - but I missed eggs. And I LOVE eggs. More than sugar. So I added eggs to my diet.
Oh, and yogurt. And then butter. And before I knew it, I wasn't vegan anymore. (it happens.)CONTINUE READING
THIS IS WHAT YOU WANNA KEEP YOUR EYES ON
Change IS happening, but it's slow. Almost plodding along.
We know the planets are influencing this (5 retrogrades? *thank you very much*) but it's also the EVOLUTIONARY energy rather than the REVOLUTIONARY energy.CONTINUE READING
I AM STRESSED, THEREFORE I AM
‘I am stressed, therefore I am’ should not be your mantra, should not be your belief.
Unfortunately, though, the fast pace of information and expectations in the world means stress has become more and more commonplace.CONTINUE READING
LOVE IS LOVE
I first met Romeo - the 35 lb male, part Maine Coon, part something from another species? - when he came out from behind a sofa and spread himself out across my feet.
He had been rescued by my neighbours 2 weeks before, but with a house full of dogs, cats, rabbits, and children he was not able to thrive.CONTINUE READING
I DON'T WANT TO FEEL THIS
There's a major emotional wave happening right now. It's an emotional tsunami.
And if you're feeling it too, you know that the intensity of your emotions can run ahead of you. They can even beat out your intentional actions. Ouch. But understanding the meaning of your emotions will go a long way...CONTINUE READING
