Category Archives: Spiritual Connection

Awakening to the spiritual value and lifeforce inherent in all of existence is a necessary part of transforming our culture into one that can sustain life. As we invite Spirit back into our awareness we begin to understand our lives in the context of a much greater unfolding. This relation to Spirit transcends the boundaries of any specific religious practice and embraces them all within the diverse fabric of our collective human history. Spiritual awareness and connection has, in fact, been the foundation of all human cultures besides the secularized industrial growth culture we now live in. Posts in this category will invite us to explore our relation to Spirit in unconventional and authentic ways, trusting our own unique and inherent relationship with the lifeforce that moves through existence.

The Inheritance of Love

Written on Father’s Day 2014 on the island my dad spent his summers as a kid. Dad…I’m here. Here on the island…sitting on the front porch of the old cottage in the sun and wind, listening to the planes fly close overhead and watching the light play on the water. These shores, covered in beach Continue Reading →

Spiritual Healing for our Earth and the Waters

I finally brought myself to watch Gasland this past week…(4 years after it was made) Even though I’m totally grateful that people are creating these documentaries to teach us about what’s going on in our world, I have a tendency to avoid them. It’s just too much for my empathic spirit to stomach. In fact, Continue Reading →

Overcoming Overwhelm with the POWER of your HEARTh-fire

As we face the daunting tasks of our lives…from figuring out how to balance a meaningful livelihood with our personal sanity and quality family time to facing the environmental, economic and political challenges on the global stage…it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and even powerless. Often, when I’m talking with people about the changes they want Continue Reading →

The Return of Spirit

Stop what you’re doing just for a moment and see if you can feel your breath moving in and out of your body…if you can feel your heart beating in your chest. Can you feel the LIFEforce in you? The energy that keeps all your bodily systems running. This lifeforce is more than a biological Continue Reading →

What’s it gonna take?

When the newsfeed and broadcasts get flooded with images and stories of violence, oppression, injustice and pollution…do you ever think to yourself… “What’s it gonna take?” What’s it gonna take for us to change our ways? To realize, once and for all, that this culture of disconnection and disrespect is a dead end street…to wake Continue Reading →

Hush Hush…

Hush hush quiet now… we are leaving the rush of things to get done and missions to accomplish… Journeying deep into the white woods, covered in crystalized snow. Crunching beneath feet and huffing of breath the only sounds now as thin streams of sunlight dance on the glossy surface of what was once a playfully Continue Reading →

knows not the language

the mountain grasses and wild flowers are a buzz with life this morning a whole universe at play amongst the tiny flying ones swarming and buzzing and fluttering in their own unique dimension pollinating the matrix of life and who knows what else busy and thriving, dive bombing flowers and barreling through the grass seed Continue Reading →

Mother River

Mother River, mastery of ripple and sound and light, casting moving patterns along the stony ground   Thank you…   For your endless generosity of flow dancing wildly over the rocks and sinking low and slow in the wide open spaces   For carrying the song and cradling the curling leaves  as they journey onward, Continue Reading →

Imbolc…the quickening

LIFE is stirring, churning, breaking the seals on reality as I have known it…on the fears and insecurities that have bound and tied me all these years. LIFE is rocking my boat…shaking me loose from this story that I have a say…that I get to direct and control its unfolding. It is simply unfolding, wild Continue Reading →

Let Gratitude Infect Your Soul

It’s the big Thanksgiving meal and everyone is gathered around the spread of turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy just like every other year. And it’s time to GIVE THANKS. That’s what it’s all about, right? But just like everything else of importance the gratitude tends to get lost in the hustle and bustle. Between the Continue Reading →
