Inviting Miracle Mode

I was talking to a friend yesterday about the power that accompanies the habit of having conversations with one’s own body. She said “Oh yes, I think about what I want my body to do all the time.” “No, that’s not the same thing” I replied. She became confused. And I hear confusion like that […]

Create a Spontaneous Remission

You’ve heard about spontaneous remissions, right? In the context of Ripley’s Believe it or Not, you can imagine a woman limping — until she steps behind the magic curtain. And then comes out dancing a jig. Do you believe it? Maybe. Or maybe not. Frankly, Ripley didn’t care. But I do. Because I’ve seen truly […]

The Burnished Part of You

Lately my focus involves helping my clients get down to the burnished, formerly tarnished bits of themselves … and polishing those bits to a gleam. I’m reminded of the Leonard Cohen song about cracks being how light gets in. And of the Japanese art of Kintsugi, whereby broken pottery is repaired with veins of gold. […]

The liver who wished to be a gallbladder

Doesn’t that sound silly? And futile? And a little bit sad that a perfectly valuable liver would spend precious time wanting to be something else? You see where I’m going with this, right? No organ in your body wastes its precious time wishing to be a different organ. If it did, your body would feed […]

John of God or Drag Queen Bingo?

I’m turning 60 this year. And if you’d asked me yesterday, I’d have said I plan to go to Brazil to experience John of God for my birthday. Today? I’ve decided to stay home and book the Drag Queen Bingo folks in West Hollywood for a party. (I figure if I’m gonna be bingo age, […]

No One Is Fine and Yet All Is Well

When you ask someone how they are and they answer, “Fine,” what crosses your mind? Me? I think “Ugh.” Because no one is really fine. Oh, they may be ecstatic. Or over the moon. Or sad, mad or glad. But fine? When I try to conjure up what fine means to me, all I think […]

How to Invite a Miracle

Happy coincidences happen to people who expect them. So, why shouldn’t that happen with miracles as well? As a healer, I have seen miracles happen. I know they’re possible. Yet I confess, sometimes I struggle with whether they can happen for me. That’s nuts, right? Well, healing is a spiral … And while I may […]

What happens to your thoughts after they’ve been thunk?

There’s a lot of talk about mind-body connections. Most of the talk is stressing the importance of the mind and how you must control your mind. Some version of “feel the fear and do it anyway.” But if there’s an old story trapped in your body, as energy that does not dissipate…I don’t care how […]

Walking through Molasses, a Heavy Wind, a Crowded Train

In the sensory inner wisdom recovery work I offer — both online classes and to private clients — I underscore the necessity of fleshing out your imagery for maximum benefits. When a client tells me they are having difficulty moving forward I might well ask them to describe in a visceral way how it feels […]

Intuition Whispers

New clients often express frustration with the subtle tasks I start them exploring and playing with. I get it, I do. Our senses are so bombarded with demands to be faster, better and stronger that slowing down to increase authentic gain seems impossible. Yet that’s what I recommend. Tip of the Week: The Art of […]
