May 2021: The Veil Thins

May 2021: The Veil Thins… Most people don’t think of late spring as the time when the veil thins, but we are at the other side of the wheel from the end of October, and the veil thins here too. While in the autumn, everything is dying, in spring it comes alive, glorious and bursting…

Like A Fish Out Of Water

Looking toward classes for 2021

As I tend to do around this time of year, I’m weighing and evaluating my offerings for the next calendar year (actually, looking through the archives, I may not have made a post like this since 2017). It’s going to be at least…

I feel like we’re in wrap up and catch up energies currently. I’m sure part of it is the fact that we’re coming up on October, which is a grief month for me, so my own personal energy is more sluggish. Not to mention everything that’s going on in the world. You’ll remember, a few…

Five Minute Meditations

Meditation is important. If you have been following me for any length of time, you probably know that. A number of people offer five minute meditations and I have, up until now, resisted that idea. The body responds to physical, mental, or emotional pressure by releasing stress hormones (such as epinephrine and norepinephrine) that increase…

Sun Rerun: Why Is the Internet Important for Change?

Considering how much time all of us are spending online right now, I thought this might be a good time to repost this article on using the Internet for change. The Internet is a manifestation of the Fourth Dimension, what some people call the Astral. There is no time, no space, and you are not…
