Is There an App For That?

The frustration was in my shoulder. It felt like a block of wood. It looked irregular. That bothered me. I noticed that it bothered me and moved on, continuing to ask myself the same questions I do clients. There was improvement with each question and soon I felt relief. Energy is amazing. The ways in... Continue Reading →

Enduring Love

Kenny walked across the dining room to take his place at the kitchen table.“Ten years ago yesterday at four o’clock in the morning Betty woke me up. She had to use the bathroom. Her legs kept giving out and she couldn’t get there on her own, so I got out of bed and helped her.... Continue Reading →

Meditation For the Rest of Us

I’m not one to rush into the day. I need a translational period of solitude before hopping into the shower. I like to sip my coffee and stare into the darkness first. It might be the only opportunity I have all day to just be quiet. The Christmas season is a bonus period because there... Continue Reading →

Holiday Nostalgia

I have two more days before December, but I am ready. I'm ready for Christmas this year and I'm even excited about it. I have big plans to take my time, slow down, and enjoy the season. Nothing brings me closer to that then remembering all the holidays celebrated on my grandparent's farm. Their house... Continue Reading →

Expectations

It was a 7 a.m. flight. The older man sitting next to me had silver in his hair and was sipping a whiskey coke. He gently nudged me with his elbow and said in a Southern drawl, "My wife told me to take her somewhere she's never been, so I grabbed her by the hand... Continue Reading →

A Lesson On Grounding

I am quickly remembering who I am. I didn't think I needed that, but maybe I do. I am remembering through my senses, vibration and energy. Public transit is harsh that way. Homelessness, mental illness, business suits and brief cases. You see it all from the window. Some of it comes within feet. That's the... Continue Reading →

Who Are You?

I think it's safe to say I've done thousands of body work treatments in the past twelve years. In that time I've gotten many lessons on human nature. One of those lessons is about how people sometimes attach themselves to a story. The story always has one thing in common. It's dramatic. I attached myself... Continue Reading →
