Me And The Moon

Comfort From Beyond

What Fills Your Cup? Do More Of That!

People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the […]

What I heard when I talked to the trees

  Listen with curiosity. Speak with honesty. Act with integrity. The greatest problem with communication is we don’t listen to understand. We listen to reply.

Searching For Elders

Long before I wrote stories, I listened for stories. Listening for them is something more acute than listening to them. I suppose it’s an early form of participation in what goes on. Listening children know stories are there. When their elders sit and begin, children are just waiting and hoping for one to come out, […]

Enrolment is Open for my Free 30 Day Challenge!

It’s Not Enough For Me to Have the WooWoo without the Grit

To my mind, ‘magic’ is the hard-to-define quality of the things that stir up mystical feelings like amazement, curiosity, imagination, and above all wonder. Magic is that which renders something beautiful in a spiritual sense. It is that which makes one feel as if the world is more than it is presently understood to be, […]

Getting Ready For A Mystical New Year’s Eve

A ritual is the enactment of a myth. And, by participating in the ritual, you are participating in the myth.

Totally Distracted By Crystal Grids

The Wounded Inner Child is the primary gateway to healing and integration. When you invite your woundedness out of subversiveness and into your awareness you finally begin to honor the past pain.

So, I Started My Own Book Club…

A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition. Like money, books must be kept in constant circulation… A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you. When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold. Henry […]

The Comfort Of Ritual

This is what rituals are for.

Is it really intuition, or are you simply afraid of the unknown?

Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness concerning all acts of initiative and creation.
