In Honor of Mothers

A precious poem I found. Author unknown.

You filled my days with rainbow lights,
Fairytales and sweet dream nights,
A kiss to wipe away my tears,
Gingerbread to ease my fears.
You gave the gift of life to me
And then in love, you set me free.
I thank you for your tender care,
For deep warm hugs and being there.
I hope that when you think of me
A part of you
You'll always see.

Happy Mother's Day to all the women in my life.

Just Do It!

Didn't want to walk this morning. Talked myself into it even though it was raining. A this point in my walk I've been having a debate with myself about whether to do the hills or turn right and go through the park.

Normally it's not a problem, but lately with allergies, lack of sleep and adrenal weariness, I have this little talk with myself. Today I pressed through and did the hills and actually had more energy when I was done.

It's just like life. Press through the tough stuff and there is a blessing on the other side. It all takes practice...

This is your brain on God

Andrew Newberg is a neuroscientist at the University of Pennsylvania and is also the author of a new book "How God Changes Your Brain." The new research shows that "the physical and emotional benefits of spiritual observances dramatically accrue over years of practice." The researchers also took a group of people that had never meditated before and taught them a simple meditation practice. After meditating 12 minutes a day for eight weeks, their evaluation showed improvement in memory scores and decrease in anxiety and anger.

The article talks a lot about religion but primarily they are talking about spiritual practices. A fascinating article and research. We already knew this but it is always great when science catches up with spirituality!

Making Peace with Making Money

Who doesn't think about money today? It's on our minds and constantly in the news. When we are stressed our energy contracts and the flow of money seems to stop. When we are at peace, energy expands and more can be revealed.

Prayer of Protection

This is a busy travel time of year and there are concerns with the swine flu. It is good to take care of yourself physically by following the advice of the professionals. The Prayer of Protection can help put your mind at ease and release fears that can keep you stuck.

The light of God surrounds you,
The love of God enfolds you,
The power of God protects you,
The presence of God watches over you.
Wherever you are, God is.

Will miss you!

I attended the memorial service today for my friend Jae who passed away after a long battle with cancer. He was energetic, joyful, compassionate, caring and truly the presence of love. It was an honor to know him and walk this sacred spiritual journey with him. He will be deeply missed.
