Love Deep
JOURNAL ENTRY October 13: Choosing Good ❤️ We hear the voice of God (Source, Goddess, Nature, Divine, Humanity, Love) — we feel so sure about that in church or temple, during meditation and at sacred spaces or near moments of death. Why then must we deny it to each other? […]

appearance
JOURNAL ENTRY October 6: Progress Progress is a slow and steady thing — and when it appears we are going backwards, is when we harness the lessons learned to propel forward. 🔥 I don’t always know where these words come from. I’m glad they do. It feels like I’m submerged in […]

storyteller
JOURNAL ENTRY September 29 Fellow warriors, there was nothing weak about the moment in the elevator when Senator Jeff Flake was confronted by protesters who in more human terms have, for too long, been the victims of silence. There is no denying the impact of that interaction — of the […]

Conversation
JOURNAL ENTRY September 15: Geniuses — of Transformation We sing in…the freedom of dreams and desires — it’s only right that we write them down in history. ✨ I speak for those with a voice still unheard. For the one’s that life threw insurmountable challenge. ✨ For the brave whom have […]

Geniuses — of Transformation


spark
That Spark Keeps Lighting Other Torches Watching the funerals of the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin and Senator John McCain moved me, as they should.

dreaming
JOURNAL ENTRY August 4,2018 Andy Cohen and Jesus Christ These journal entries weave together, part dream, memory or stream of consciousness — messages, still coded waiting for our hearts to break them. I write these fictional, nonfictional “stories” because, well, they ask me too. So here we go. —RS ON […]

JOURNAL ENTRY JULY 28, 2018 Compassion, The New Pill 🌞 People are struggling. The news is making us aware of that. We are more awake than we’ve been in a while, that’s true. But, the conflicting message of taking a pill to make us happy or “better” leaves a bitter taste. […]

reflection
Our True Power In this moment (the now) we can see infinite possibility. And while it’s also true that only in looking back can we see patterns and connections (reasons or synchronicity’s) — our true power is in our decision today. Where we alter our lives. —————- #sippin Numi Organic […]

Our True Power

JOURNAL ENTRY May 12: Gut Instinct: Things that ring true —the words, the sentences, the people that vibrate within us. Goosebumps, Aha’s, those bells that go off — the gut, intuition…all this to wake us. Perhaps its Nature calling out “you’re not alone.” __________________ “Imagine. Becoming so aware and aligned […]

Beaches
Our Human Spirit, Lives Strong There’s a large sand dune that drops off into the ocean, it’s about a 50 foot drop. I drove there in my DREAM last night looking for my sister in law’s dark green Tahoe. Lisa passed away in 2014 the same year several others left […]

writing
JOURNAL ENTRY March 10 I call it “the world of dreams” because it’s the field of possibility where all things become possible. Settling into this inward observatory, I watch. I watch the words float by, I observe the events happening, just seeing them —without judging them. Writing, I listen to […]

freedom
“All things are possible. Love heals. Make your moments count — and include everything.” Mountains and Valleys “Sing from the mountain top” I’ve heard best-selling author, lecturer and activist Marianne Williamson say.

Loving the monster in the room I was guided through a meditation recently by a mentor who asked me to identify the fear I had about a certain experience. It showed up easily enough. A large monster, a big and puffy silent creature looming in the corner of my mind. […]

heart center
Unfold Like a Flower  🌼 At times my heart and my head are at odds. Thoughts, beliefs, and this ever so conditioned mind add confusion and distraction, short circuiting my mouth when what I really wish to do is MAKE the MOMENT COUNT. The intricate dance of life continues anyway.  […]

Why Am I Happy? We forge truth in the simplest things — needing not, a complicated life to find it because happiness is always alive in the raw moments. Happiness is our truth. Sonja Lyubomirsky, professor of psychology at the University of California, says happiness is, “the experience of joy, […]

“I’m everybody’s story of loss and grief —not unique or special.” GOODNESS Life is vast. It’s layered with what is both real and unreal, made up of thoughts that seem to come from nowhere —yet is the very energy we use to create what we believe to be true. Death, […]

birthday
My Mother had the gift — she knew things before they happened. She offered very wise words that sometimes didn’t match her behavior, however, she was an angel of love. I was close to her, we shared the empath factor. My spirit of freedom seemed at odds at times, but […]

Lush —Diverse —Breathtakingly Beautiful. If the world exists mostly in my mind — then it’s my thinking that I must save myself from.
