Love IS Color

Posted July 8, 2016 in Healing / Self Care
In the wake of all the horrifying news of racial violence I have been seeing a bunch of "I don't see color" and "# all lives matter" social media posts. Yes, for sure, we are Souls having a human experience--but it is serious spiritual bypassing to pretend that being brown/black does not significantly increase your chances of being beaten and/or killed--BECAUSE OF COLOR. So humans, we...

Stay Tuned

Posted June 30, 2016 in Healing / Self Care
  I have been surviving between the worlds recently. Living between the ‘old way’ and the new, still-birthing thing. The old way is not, by any means, bad. This is why it is so hard to leave it behind. The old way is tried and true and culturally safe, understood and identifiable. The old way is my psychotherapist self—supporting safe boundaries and active reflective listening....

The intention of any terrorist act is to create a climate of fear and chaos in which to gain control. Looking at the recent news there is valid reason to be terrified: Over 200 injured and 43 lives lost in Beirut, 26 killed in Baghdad and at least 128 killed in gunfire or blasts in Paris. It is tempting in the wake of grief, fear and heartbreak to blame, prove and argue. Yet, the terrorist...

50 Ways to Replenish

Posted June 22, 2015 in Healing / Self Care
I often work with big-hearted, sensitive and burnt-out empathic clients. These are often extremely compassionate individuals who are good at achieving in the world but not always good at taking the necessary time for self-care. Of course we can't give water to others if our own internal well is empty.  So I compiled a simple list of 50 ways to replenish. All the things on this list are...

I recently spoke to a burned-out client who works long hours and lives right in the heart of bustling Manhattan. She had been super busy at work and didn’t have much time for self-care. At a crossroads, she was trying to decide if she should move and find a new job that was less demanding. I asked her one of my favorite ‘get clear’ questions to help her gain perspective: “If you had...

(experted from the forthcoming "Meet Your Soul"  Hay House, 2015)   Eye Gazing We often hear people say the eyes are the windows to the Soul. So if shouldn’t come as a surprise that eye gazing, an ancient and powerful practice, can swiftly peel back layers of the ego. The intention behind this exercise is to have an intimate encounter with the “You” that lies behind programmed...

The end of the year is a great time to take stock and evaluate how we spend our days and energy. When we clear out the old, we make room for what is new to manifest in our lives. We create the psychic space and breathing room to allow what is vibrant and Soul-alligned to be able to get to us. If we take the time to declutter, simplify, and consciously surround ourselves with the elements of...

  Vision Boards. Have you heard of them? They are everywhere. What used to be a more off-beat quirky manifestation tool is coming out of the closet and featured on Oprah. Basically, a vision board is a place to incubate and manifest your dreams.   What makes a good vision board? 1) The manifestations are coming from Soul and not ego fears 2) The vision board...

Make It About Love

Posted September 27, 2013 in Healing / Self Care
The other day I was spinning out.  I was about to give a speech in front of a large audience and was getting more nervous by the second.   ‘Will I say the right things?”   “Can I communicate my message?”   “What if I look scared or fall off the stage?”     And then I heard my Soul, Sophia, whisper to me:   “Don’t make this about you. ...
