Mother Earth’s Lessons in Love

This morning I was reminded that our greatest teacher, Mother Earth, sometimes has trouble letting go.We are a quarter of they way through the month of April, and it was 34 degrees when I bundled up in my full length, furry-hooded coat to take Mr. Darcy out this morning.

Peace Within the Chaos

"Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart." My personal approach to life has radically changed out of necessity for survival, and I'm just now realizing its effect.…

Full Moon Ritual for Release

The Full Moon represents a time for releasing the things that no longer serve us. It could pertain to projects, relationships, negative thoughts, beliefs, or behavior patterns – pretty much anything that might be holding us back from truly loving ourselves. This is my favorite full moon ritual that is designed to help you cleanse…
