The Value of Friendship

Many of us will remember as children being told what to, and what not to talk about with others.  Many times, I remember being yelled at by my mother for talking about, what to me, seemed like a small incident or occurrence in the house.  What made it worse for me, is that somehow the … Continue reading The Value of Friendship

When We Want a Different Answer…

Often in life, we find ourselves repeating the same behaviors every time certain emotional issues come up.  These behaviors can be damaging, both to ourselves, and to those around us.  We know that these behaviors are not working, and yet, we keep doing the same things expecting a different response - a change somewhere else … Continue reading When We Want a Different Answer…

The Dehumanization of the Work Force

Employers, have you noticed a change in your employees?  Are they depressed, upset, your statistics are dropping?  Is the workplace no longer vibrant and happy?  If this is the case, then I ask you to take an honest look at your employee policies and how you treat your employees.

Dealing With Hypocrisy

Before we started our path to healing, we were all just as guilty.  Now, hopefully we are learning to overcome it.  It's also something that we all love to hate.  I'm talking about hypocrisy.  Being angry someone else for what we ourselves are guilty of but will not acknowledge. Sometimes we will commit an act, … Continue reading Dealing With Hypocrisy

When It Rains…

...and when life hands you lemons, combine them and make lemonade. As with everything I write, this blog too comes out of experience, and very often, recent experience(s).  When I write, I am usually walking myself through the release/healing process of releasing emotions.  By writing I am opening myself up to the Spirit, and allowing … Continue reading When It Rains…

Changes Abound

It's been a rough couple of weeks, with more less-than-thrilling surprises, upheavals and changes than I could ever have expected.  I've seen drama, incredible strength through profound grief, was able to provide a gift I never expected to be accepted, and more. Change is a natural part of the cycle of life.  We are only … Continue reading Changes Abound

Emotional Manipulation of the Masses

We've all heard it before:  "She's just using him." or "He's just playing her", referring to one person manipulating another.  But how often do we stop and consider how much we are all manipulated on a minute by minute basis?  We can talk about, we can state that it happens, but how often do we … Continue reading Emotional Manipulation of the Masses
