Have You Talked To Them About It?

I grew up in a community where complaining and gossiping about others was a national pastime.  Small town, small school, plethora of churches with small congregations where there was as much daytime drama in real life as there was on TV.  Never a dull moment unless you found petty drama boring…  So one thing I’ve…

Deeper Understanding

There is theory and then there is practice.  What you think or the meaning that you make from what others think and express is different from what will actually come into being when you start doing or putting form on that thought.  Which is why there are lineages to Buddhism and Reiki, a rich tapestry…

What’s Best to Do

I’m commonly asked what a client’s life plan is or what they should do next.  They want to know what the next step is, what their spiritual goals are, to see everything laid out ahead of them.  And that would be comforting, in a way, because it takes the weight of responsibility off of us…

Contracts are Fluid

In physical life contracts are structured, formal ties between people or entities.  They are that way because we humans are full of free will, limited in our ability to see far into the cause and effect future that will come from our decisions now, and fluid in our decision making process so our minds change…
