Stop striving. Start listening.

This is a follow-up to this post: On a mission (statement) I've written of Serendipity and Synchronicity before. There have been many examples of it in my life, such as the time two women showed up to one of my workshops out of the blue. It "just happened" that these two women were from the … Continue reading Stop striving. Start listening.

A Path to Publication, part 2: When the time is right

"What do I really want to do?" I asked my journal. "Finish your book!" it replied. "Yes," I exhaled in recognition of Truth. "I do want to do that." The Universe said, "OK, then!" And the Serendipities and Synchronicities began. Within hours, two conferences popped up in my Facebook feed, one weekend-long one dedicated specifically … Continue reading A Path to Publication, part 2: When the time is right

Again with the Tension?! (Or, It’s OK not to know)

It's happened again. An old theme has come circling around, adding another new level of understanding. June 2009: I wrote this post on a different blog, which I then re-posted here in July 2011. This is the gist: During a Journal Therapy training I wrote (well, it kind of wrote itself while I held the … Continue reading Again with the Tension?! (Or, It’s OK not to know)

Tolerating Fear

This is a recycled post from a couple of years ago. With summer in full , hot swing, the kids are home most days of the week leaving me very little chance to write (the beach and my laptop aren't great friends).

Although I am in a completely different life situation now (I left my job very soon after this post and started grad school a … Continue reading Resume the Stability of Tension

When opportunity knocks… and hands you a gift

Yesterday I received a card through the mail. Inside was a magnet that read: "When opportunity knocks don't be the one who says, 'Can somebody get that?'" This gift was from Kay Adams, founder and director of the Center for Journal Therapy, and it represents a bigger gift which she gave me¬†when she called out … Continue reading When opportunity knocks… and hands you a gift

It is connections that heal

Since I began grad school last August I have been particularly awe-struck by the twins, Synchronicity and Serendipity. Connections everywhere! Seemingly unrelated events, conversations, books, memories, people have suddenly fallen together like perfectly synchronized cogs. My life paths and how they have led to where I am and what I am doing today is the … Continue reading It is connections that heal

Trust the process, pt 5 (Everything is connected, 1)

Back in May I wrote in this post, Steppingstones to a new life, about how different paths of my life had suddenly come together at juncture, namely, grad school. I was shocked and gob-smacked how the Universe, Serendipity and Synchronicity got together presented me with this and amazing and timely opportunity. But these three tricksters … Continue reading Trust the process, pt 5 (Everything is connected, 1)

A prayer for my readers

This post was inspired to this article by Molly Gordon, "Why you should pray for your clients." As writing is my mediator to both the inner and higher sources of wisdom, I offer up this open letter as a prayer and meditation in honor of my valued readers and clients. Namaste! I do not know … Continue reading A prayer for my readers

Steppingstones to a new life

Yesterday morning in my journal I wrote: I am blessed with abundance. I am blessed with the answer. I am a magnet to all the resources I need. What is the answer? I need to know what path to go down today. This morning I wrote: Oh, lawd! I feel like a puzzle piece just … Continue reading Steppingstones to a new life
