This is my cat, KitKat J. Snorington, binge-watching his version of Nature NetFlix. Just outside, a whole world of squirrels, chattering birds, and two raccoons (such frequent visitors, we’ve named them Rocco and Enrique) mesmerize him for hours. Until it’s time for his catnap (which lasts for most of the day, just FYI). At that point, he lives up to his name, and starts snoring – a ton.:)


New Day

66H“When you wake up in the morning, the cells of your body have pushed the reset button. And if you don’t reintroduce negative beliefs that you have about your body or about your ability, as soon as you wake up—then you have a fresh start.”

Esther Hicks, the Teachings of Abraham

“The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.”

Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams


Off the Hook

August 23, 2015

Tell everyone you know: “My happiness depends on me, so you’re off the hook.” And then demonstrate it. Be happy, no matter what they’re doing. Practice feeling good, no matter what. And before you know it, you will not give anyone else responsibility for the way you feel — and then, you’ll love them all. Because the only reason you don’t love them, is because you’re using them as your excuse to not feel good.

Esther Hicks, Teaching of Abraham


Three Little Words

August 10, 2015

My recent post on the blog I co-write with Sue Bradford Edwards and Lori Strawn, praypower4today, led to my writing an incredibly short e-book on Kindle called Three Little Words. The catalyst for writing this teeny, tiny collection of three-word affirmations was inspirational blogger, the Lady Calen, of the wonderful blog, Impromptu Promptlings. I wrote this as a lark, and it’s so tiny I can’t even call it a book, more a booklet! So I wanted to thank Lady Calen and offer her these three words: you’re an inspiration!


Accentuate the Positive

June 3, 2015

Deep Truth

Anytime you feel negative emotion, stop and say: Something is important here; otherwise, I would not be feeling this negative emotion. What is it that I want? And then simply turn your attention to what you do want.

In the moment you turn your attention to what you want, the negative attraction will stop; and in the moment the negative attraction stops, the positive attraction will begin. And—in that moment—your feeling will change from not feeling good to feeling good. That is the Process of Pivoting.

Esther Hicks, the Teachings of Abraham


Goodbye Ritual

May 17, 2015

Wonderful post from a blog worth visiting, Impromptu Promptlings!

Impromptu Promptlings

Yesterday I reblogged a post by Ruth Williams from praypower4today. She mentioned in it remembering how her dad used to stand outside his garage when she was coming over for a visit and remark that she was late. She said she finally realized it was his way of saying, “You’re the highlight of our day! Couldn’t wait for you to get here.”

The light bulb went on and I remembered something I’d written about MY dad on the anniversary of his death. Thinking about it made me wonder if that’s really some kind of “parent” thing. If we all have our little rituals that give our lives continuity.

If you do, I’d love it if you’d share it in the comment box!

Goodbye Ritual

I don’t remember when it started, when my father decided, consciously or not, that saying goodbye needed to…
