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 […]

A picture speaks a thousand stories: A client’s truth

I have to thank my client B. for allowing me to share this story. When she first started working with me, the concept of talking to and learning from her own body and inner wisdom was foreign. During our sessions together and also by participating in my Alchemy of Self Healing online class, B. found […]

Release Your Small Stories… Embrace the Bigger Canvas

In case you’re wondering, I’m referring to both the bigger canvas of the vast world around us as well as s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g into the bigger canvas of you. Yes, the fabric of YOU. Why is this canvas critical to embrace for optimal creating and/or healing? Your soul needs room to Breathe. To create a new job, […]

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 […]

Horse Reflections; Equine Mirrors

From pages 111-114 in my book, The Alchemy of Self Healing, the following essay incorporates working Craniosacrally with a horse, and Direction of Ease, Inner Wisdom and leaps on all Three Awareness Levels that are worked on in the book. Essay: From Tolstoy to Degas in Orange County I’m perched on the metal fence of […]

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 […]

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 […]
