Practice The Pause


Going from mindless to mindful   Last night I had a delightful dinner with a dear friend. It had been a while since we had gotten together, life happens and time passes. But we caught up and it felt so good to spend the time together.   One of the things we touched on is [...]

Staying in a mindful and spiritual state of being during the holidays can be challenging for many people.

Spiritual Technique To Forgive Someone


Late last night I received a text message from someone I'll call Sue, who I helped recently. I did a distance healing for her, smudged her house and also spoke to her deceased father. I was able to get her some answers to some of the questions she had for her father and then helped [...]
