Our Hearts Are Made For Love

Our hearts are made to love. Love is our soul’s assignment. There are so many opportunities to experience and express love each day with family, dear friends, and even in kindness shown toward a stranger. And although we may feel perfectly complete and whole in who we are, for many of us, the love of and for an intimate partner is where we find love’s most complete expression.

If you are looking to attract the love of your life this year, here are some tips you might find useful… […]

Listening To The Still Small Voice

Have you ever called someone you haven’t spoken to in a while, only to have them say, “I was just thinking about you!”  Have you ever had a ‘gut feeling about something, only to find out your were right?  Have you ever had a hunch you should bring your umbrella with you on a perfectly clear morning, only to get caught in a freak rainstorm in the afternoon?  That is your intuition at work. […]

My Already Existent Oak

This past weekend I had the distinct privilege of sitting at the feet of Jean Houston’s magnificent teaching.  She is a remarkable woman, a brilliant mind, and an extraordinary communicator.  One of Jean’s great skills is her ability to create an experience in your whole body that shifts your entire heart, mind and soul in such a way that you are never the same.  She did that for us this weekend when she invited us into an encounter with our future Self, standing before us with love and compassion, inviting us to become that One.

The Power of Imagination

The mind is such an amazing instrument.  When we harness the power of the mind, the possibilities of what we can create for ourselves and our world are infinite.  However, like any other instrument, it takes practice to learn how to use the mind well.  To give you an idea of what the mind is capable of, imagine this.  If you stand with your two feet together – the area covered by your two feet represents the amount of our mind that most of us are using.  But if you draw an 11 mile radius around yourself, that represents the amount that the mind is capable of. Needless to say, most of us have a lot or growing room. […]

Let’s Get Creative

Wallace Wattles in his classic book on abundance, The Science of Getting Rich, says that, when it comes to creating a life of abundance, ‘You are to get rid of all thought of competition. You are to create, not compete.” Learning to develop and operate from our creative mind, he says, is key to creating abundance in every aspect of our lives. […]

A Brother Like That

The following story touched my heart and I believe, captures the true spirit of the holidays.

Paul received an automobile from his brother as a Christmas present.

On Christmas Eve when Paul came out of his office, a street urchin was walking around the shiny new car, admiring it. “Is this your car, Mister?” he asked. […]


Nothing frees our heart more than forgiveness.  I have been learning a lot about forgiveness lately, and it has brought me to a whole new understanding and perspective.  Many years ago, I used to think that there were some things that were just plain unforgivable.  People can do some pretty awful things sometimes and in my mind, there were some things that just didn’t seem ‘worthy’ of forgiveness.  But one of the important things I learned along the way is that, as long as there is someone ‘jailed’ their has to be a ‘jailer’.  Forgiveness frees the one jailed, but most importantly, it frees the jailer to a life of greater freedom, fullness and joy.

Nothing gets our joy on faster than gratitude. That’s because gratitude shifts our perspective, it shifts our focus, and that shifts our feelings and attitude.  When our feelings and attitude shift, that shifts our vibration, which means that not only do we see and experience things from a new perspective, we also begin to attract a whole different set of experiences to us.  Wallace Wattles had some amazing things to say about gratitude in his powerful little book, The Science of Getting Rich. Listen to this… […]
