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.

Easter Blessings

I was watching an OPB special about Jerusalem today and once again felt extraordinary gratitude for the opportunity to visit there in February. The sacredness of the city, the richness of its history and the holiness of the revered sites have opened my heart in a most amazing way.

Blessings for a most holy and sacred Easter. May the sacredness of this day continue to shower love and joy on you and your loved ones.

Ask Amy

I just returned from Voices lecture series and heard Amy Dickinson of the "Ask Amy" column. She was a warm, humorous and sensitive speaker. A joy to listen to. Her stories about growing up in a small town in upstate NY are priceless. And it was moving to hear her talk about the women in her family that influenced her life and helped shape her values.

She wrote The Mighty Queens of Freeville: A Mother, A Daughter and the Town That Raised Them. I am looking forward to reading it.

It was great to laugh tonight. It was great to hear someone's humorous portrayal about the ups and downs of life.

The story is engaging, suspenseful and is a gift of love. This teleclass is an enticement to look more deeply within and join in a discussion with other like-minded individuals. Please join us!

Accepting Happiness

When Michael J Fox was interviewed on Oprah last week he shared his observation, " Happiness grows in direct proportion to your acceptance of your condition and inverse proportion to your expectation." Powerful words to live by.
