Chaos and anxiety having its way with us…

Social media, egos, and the missed opportunity.     The following may not have been your experience over the past few days. I hope it hasn’t been, even though that means this article will be confusing and meaningless to you. For those who can relate, you aren’t alone and this can change for us. You know, […]

You are always “doing your best.” And so is everyone else….

How Grace is the antidote to judgment when we allow it in Since embarking on this spiritual and personal wellness journey, I’ve come to realize that I used to talk a lot about concepts that I really didn’t understand because I hadn’t truly experienced them. Concepts like grace and faith and compassion. These aren’t just […]

Identification with thoughts – more on mindfulness

Identification with thoughts – more on mindfulness I’ve been talking a lot about mindfulness and meditation practices in my blog and just in general because finding, learning, and integrating these practices helped me learn how to be with depression, anxiety, and panic attacks differently. I know people want to hear how they can ERADICATE or […]

Crystal Healing Spotlight: Stilbite

Crystal Healing with Stilbite Stilbite isn’t a “sexy” mineral in the crystal healing world: it doesn’t garner the attention that say, Amethyst, Ajoite, Sugilite, and others enjoy. I don’t often hear people recommend stilbite to others or mention working with the mineral personally because, well, I don’t know. It’s a fairly inexpensive and easily obtained […]

If I hear “meditate!” one more time….Mindfulness in our healing work

If I hear “meditate!” one more time….Mindfulness in our healing work Two interesting messages came through over the past week. The first was a criticism that in recent posts, I have been too critical of the metaphysical community without providing much in the way of alternative options. I used to detest criticism. I was once […]

Being empathic is not a gift or a handicap – unless you need it to be

edited 6/18/17 – Before you read on…. Just today I was finally listening to a podcast from NPR’s Invisibilia, that had been sitting in my queue for a few weeks: And before reading on, I strongly encourage you to listen to it. It has everything to do with what I write below. It has everything […]

Working with Cathedral Quartz

Cathedral Quartz in subtle energy healing Cathedral Quartz Information Quartz are given unique names to help distinguish between different growth processes, environments, and appearances. Both the mineralogical community and the metaphysical community give names to different formations, for different reasons. Sometimes the names match, sometimes they don’t. And yes, that can be confusing. To make […]

When Spiritual-but-not-Religious is a load of crap

or, “How I found myself back in that damn box after clawing my way out” It’s ironic. Years ago an article came out decrying the “spiritual but not religious” seeker. I can’t remember who wrote it and it doesn’t really matter, but for a while it drew people into a debate about how SBNR folks […]

Joy and Grace in Nondualistic Healing

Joy and grace can be present in difficult experiences – healing from a non-dualistic perspective. I was listening to On Being’s podcast the other day, excited because Krista Tippett interviewed Richard Rohr. His newest book, Divine Dance, was recently released and Ms. Tippett asked him all manner of important questions and referenced his earlier works as well. […]
