Would you like to like yourself more? and other juicy questions…

A few years back I created the Heal Your Mojo telesummit and one my guest speakers was Alan Questel, who is a star teacher in the Feldenkrais World. I’d like to share a bit about Alan and his work with you today. Alan got started in Feldenkrais through his own back injury. Most people don’t […]

Blending Opportunities: A Recipe for Renewal

Last week I gave you an example of looking for a pattern in your body so that you might identify it and decide how it is serving you. (Hint: Oftentimes, these patterns are NOT operating in your current best interests.) Before you seek outside assistance with old operating patterns lodged in your body or aura, […]

Gifts and Patterns

Here’s an integrative way of taking stock of a year. It’s based on a craniosacral concept which I use as a jumping off point for a Gifts and Patterns exploration with VIP Day clients. The concept is called The Significance Detector and cranial therapists know that when this pause in the cranial rhythm occurs spontaneously […]

Endings and Beginnings

Paradox in the Natural Scheme of Things For me, Winter represents a paradox. It’s both cold (temperature). The end of a year, a sometimes sobering completion or ending. And to some, it is a reckoning. On the other hand. Winter can be viewed as warm (holidays, family, friends). A joyous wrap up leaving you eager […]

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. […]

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 […]
