The Hard Way


I have had a very trying week

I don’t understand what possible good all of this chaos could possibly serve

But I am trying really hard to remain strong in my faith

In the faith that I may not always see the good reasons behind the bad experiences

But I know beyond a shadow of a doubt

That You are orchestrating these events for a reason

Or maybe many reasons


I believe this with all my heart

But sometimes I find it hard to handle the assault of people being mean

Going out of their way to hurt me

And choosing to do the wrong things

So I pray that I will be enlightened

And I pray that I do not back slide into

Thinking that people treat me this way

Because that is how I deserve to be treated


I worked so hard to learn to love myself

And I know that pleases You tremendously

So I will continue on my path

With self love and respect

And I will be thankful for

All my lessons that I learn

Even the ones I learn the hard way

And perhaps the most important piece of this crazy puzzle

I will offer the people who tried to steal my joy


Because I think these people really need help

And therefore I will say a prayer for them


A prayer for healing






Oh…Little Girl

Oh…Little Girl

So tiny…so frail

I see you hiding

Trying not to be seen

Trying to meld into the fabric

of the walls that surround your heart

So many things you’ve witnessed

Been privy to the monster workings of the world

Chaos all around you

You can’t make it stop

Yet you need to find a way to control it

Because you can FEEL it all

The energy rises up

and it’s real

It smacks you in the face

As a punch is delivered

Bones crack


It doesn’t matter

For they are one

Oh…Little Girl

I can see how you tried to protect yourself

I can see the strategies you tried to employ

The things you did to try not to feel

The way you tried to numb yourself

Make the feeling stop

And when you couldn’t get relief that way

You thought you could control everything in your path

You could plan for every possible event

Head off trouble at the pass

Because if you could prevent the problems before they happened

You wouldn’t have to FEEL the resulting pain

Oh…Little Girl

I know how sad you can be at times

Because you failed

because you weren’t able to prevent the pain

and then once the pain ramped up and took hold of you

you weren’t able to handle the pain


Oh…Little Girl

I don’t have all the answers

But I do know what the problem is

and they say that is the first step to freedom

Take my hand and be not afraid

Walk to the light

The light of love

Vibrate at the level of spirit

The spirit that resides in you

The spirit that bathes you in white light

It is going to be okay

You are going to be okay

I promise I won’t leave you

and I promise I will help you any way that you need help

Oh…Little Girl




A Loud Booming Bellow


In the darkness

I sit alone


No sounds

No movement

Just a direct connection to my spirit…to my soul

A time to take solace

A time to examine

Look hard at the questions

Sit still and wait for enlightenment




I come away with the idea that the break was needed

That there wasn’t enough of a connection to the things that matter

That I was caught up in the wheel of life and I didn’t honor the path

The Way

The life that I am creating

The life that I want to live


So a self imposed exile was in order

A defined time out

A body that took control and said, “Hey, pay attention!”

With the little signs ignored

It had no choice but to make me sit up and take notice


No…it would not allow me to go back to old established patterns

Years of neglect

Unbelievable abuse

My body took the brunt of the emotional turmoil for years

It felt the pain that my mind couldn’t handle

It had its fill of silently suffering

Playing the martyr

Once strong and healthy it had a voice


One that could not be ignored


It has been a tough week

But I am starting my walk to the light that I see

Step by step

I cleanse my heart

My Mind

My Soul

My Body

I lay gratitude at my feet

I am filled with love and respect

I honor the relationship of mind, spirit, body

That even though tested

Will never be broken


A triumvirate connected




I has been a very tough, painful week.  A massive sinus infection persisted through two doctors and two medications and eventually landed me in the emergency room begging for relief from the pain.

A very dear friend…my Soul Mate…wrote to me and said, “Imagine it is a ‘test’ to verify your ‘inner’ sun is able to shine even when the weather is bad.”

The next morning I woke early and walked up to the ocean.  I thought the morning birth of my outer sun would spark my inner rays to reach out and cover my heart.  For once stimulated…gently nudged…the hearts vibrations can not be stopped.


The peaceful lapping of the waves reflecting the colors of the sky washed over my soul.  I could feel my inner child being held safe in the arms of love.


I thought about life.  I looked around, in fact did a complete turn to take the whole morning in.  And to my surprise, standing behind me was the waning gibbous moon that had been full of blood just the day before.


And in that moment I connected to the moon, to the earth, to the ocean, to the tides.  I felt the rhythm of life inside me and I wanted to dance. 


Yes…and somehow in the daybreak, what was broken started to repair.

Thank you my friends.  Your well wishes and support during this painful time is appreciated more than I can possibly put into words.  So I send you a message from my heart ❤

I have been selected to be a Featured Luminary On “Inspire Me on Oct 9, 2014.

My dear friend Melanie is going to be featured on “Inspire Me” as a luminary!!! I’m very excited for her and hope you will check her out! 🙂


As members of the human race,

we all have one thing in common,

and that is the desire to better our situation and improve our lives.

For many,

it’s far too easy to get sucked into the belief that we are limited,

that our dreams are impossible

and that the ‘good life’ wasn’t really meant for us in the first place.

Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we get caught up in the drama around us and forget who we are on a deeper level.

We forget that we are Divine beings having a human experience.

But all it takes is one little spark of inspiration,

and we can leave those fearful thoughts behind.

Inspiration reminds us that we are not our problems,

nor are we bound by our limiting beliefs.

When we are inspired, our spark inside turns into a flame

and our lives and those…
