  Did you know there are pain free and inexpensive options besides in vitro fertilization for getting pregnant? Listen to Lisa’s 3-minute story.

How to Find an Exceptional Therapist, Healer or Coach

How do you know if you’re working with someone who is actually helping you? How do you know how to trust someone else’s perspectives more than your own? How do you know if what a therapist is telling you is true?   It’s challenging to find a therapist, energy healer or coach who can truly help you. read on

CHARACTER STRUCTURE AND THE LIFE FORCE

At its most basic level, the body runs on energy. Everything we do– from eating to working to exercising– requires energy. Without a current running through us, we wouldn’t get up in the morning and we wouldn’t get anything done. The more freely our energy runs through the body, the easier it is to do read on

My First Kiss

What you think in your mind, you become like that.   The first time I heard that quote, I got really scared, because wow…the thoughts in my mind are often negative, limiting and critical. When my mind was so busy finding fault with others, I began to realize how true that quote was.  As soon read on

How Are You at Receiving?

  You may be hard-wired as a natural giver; a parent, teacher, medical professional or service-oriented person.  As such you may also be a person who can dish it out but can’t take it.   When a young child draws a picture with crayons and proudly hands it to Mom, Mom might typically respond with, “Oh read on

The Irony of Detachment

  I’m in a state of expansion, new professional opportunities, more public exposure and more being s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d out of my comfort zone! At my age, I was sure I would quietly slip toward retirement but it seems my destiny has a different idea.   Being an energy healer, my physiology is quite sensitized.

Healing hate

Healing hate begs the question, what is hate?

How to Tell if You’re Making Spiritual Progress

Twenty years ago I attended a lecture with a famous spiritual teacher from India. A woman in the audience asked him a question. I never forgot the question, or the answer.

Dancing with your shadow

There is a topic often untouched in publications about conscious spiritual growth. This is the power of our shadow or lower self.

Fear and Faith

How do we regard such an incident as the massacre of dear school children? There are 3 primary realms of existence, the material, emotional and spiritual.

How skeptics become believers

  FEELING is BELIEVING.

How to break a bad habit

Transitions are tough. Everything in our physiology naturally goes into resistance when facing a transition. The brain loves to create patterns. With patterns (even, unfortunately, negative, destructive patterns), you find comfort simply because the pattern is known to you. Patterns help us feel stable. But what about the patterns that start out as healthy and read on

I promise to love you – hate you – for the rest of my life

That’s what the marriage vows should really say, “I promise to love you/hate you for the rest of my life.” That would be more honest. Or perhaps the vows should say, “I promise to stay in the ring with you even when it’s hard, even when I want to bolt.” Or how about, “I promise read on
