Can You Become Such a King? (Poem)

  Can You Become Such a King? I want that kind of grace from God that when it hits I won’t get off the floor for days. And when I finally do stagger into a semblance of poise I will still need a cane and shoulder to help me walk, and I will need great patience from any who try to decipher my slurred speech. You should forget about knowing the Friend unless you are willing to kiss the world with great abandon. Locked like a pair of dogs, openly making love in the streets, impervious to shouts and pails of water being thrown and glares from eyes that pass. Can you become such an ego-less king? -Rumi Taken from Love Poems from God; Twelve Sacred Voices from the East and West...

The Sacraments by Francis of Assisi (Poem)

  The Sacraments I once spoke to my friend, an old squirrel, about the Sacraments — he got so excited. and ran into a hallow in his tree and came back holding some acorns, an owl feather, and a ribbon he found. And I just smiled and said, “Yes dear, you understand: Everything imparts His grace.     Poem taken from Love Poems from God; Twelve Sacred Voices from the East and West Daniel Ladinsky Poem attributed to St. Francis of...

Quick Affirmation for Leaving Behind the Old

I have a new affirmation — feel free to borrow it. I am using it often now and the power of it is incredible. Ready? Say it out loud as you read this and FEEL the energy of it as you speak it … “That was so yesterday.” A friend called me, she wanted to know if I’d heard anything on the condo I’d put an offer on almost six weeks ago. I have experienced bouts of anxiety with the wait. My response to her was, “no news, and the anxiety surrounding it was so yesterday.” Laughing loudly she said, “I’m going to use that.” A client had a long history of making herself frustrated. She could take a little speck and very quickly turn it into a boulder. We dissected her pattern together and then found ways to reorganize her thoughts and actions to align with her new intention. I said her pattern “was so yesterday,” and her face lit up as she said, “you’re right! I’m different...

My Free Lenten Gift for You!!

    This past Sunday I spoke on the Metaphysical meaning of Lent. Leading up to my talk I decided to dive head long into transformation and transformations that we choose to initiate; versus ones that feel as though they are hoisted upon us. This inquiry led me into creating a workbook to be used throughout the Lent season beginning with Ash Wednesday, tomorrow. I would like to gift this workbook to you. It requires choosing something you would like to change about yourself in the next forty six days (forty days plus six Sundays). I suggest you do this with someone else for High Watch support (always adds potency), although it isn’t necessary. It is a day-by-day workbook, so you will be engaged in daily reading and spiritual practice. Just think, forty six days from now you could give up smoking for good, make new friends, have a job you love, heal your body, shift your body weight, open to love … it is your choice. Just click...

A Day Surrounded by Dr. Ernest Holmes

  Yesterday I had the privilege of being at Founder’s Church. THE Founder’s Church where Dr. Ernest Holmes, founder of Science of Mind, blessed the church at its dedication, ministered in it for four short months and then was the focus of the first memorial service. Dr. Holmes’ writings have been influential to my spiritual growth and unfoldment. Here is a taste of his early writing from Creative Mind and Success (1919): From selfish motives alone, if from no loftier reason, we cannot afford to find fault or to hate or even to hold in mind anything against any living soul. The God who is out of love cannot hear the prayer of the man who is not love. Love and co-operation will yet be found to be the greatest business principle on earth. “God is Love.” I re-read this passage yesterday out of a book signed by Dr. Holmes and it along with several others passages felt as though it entered directly into my bloodstream. Within Founder’s Church...

Until It’s Done: Celebrating a Big Completion

I pinch myself giggling. Close to twenty years of holding an idea and deepening into it, and two years of dedicated writing and rewriting, my book A Year of Go(o)d: Daily Lessons for the Mystic in Training is written, re-written, edited, re-written, published, and now available for sale. Pinch, pinch, pinch, pinch. Giggle, giggle, giggle. I stop, take a big deep breath, send an email to each of my friends, and celebrate this moment. It’s a big deal and I acknowledge it to myself. Until it’s done, was my mantra with this book. First came the idea. I was in a class studying the roots of the New Thought philosophy in the mid-1990s. I read Self Reliance by Emerson and felt like I was known. I read Judge Thomas Troward’s Edinburgh Lectures and had dreams of energy spirals, experiencing expansion and illumination. Then, I got to Emma Curtis Hopkins work and my body tingled, trembled, and experienced a cellular shift which I couldn’t ignore. Many in my class dismissed...
