Tea Time: To Experience Awareness

“Delightful and earthy steaming balm in the cool air med-tea-tation time.” ~ Suresh Gundappa This month we have been looking at ways to incorporate meditation and mindfulness practices into our daily routines. For individuals who have difficulty sitting in silence or even for those of us who need to switch it up to slow us down, how about a morning, afternoon, or evening tea break? For those of us with a strong Air Element or predominant Mercury in our charts, it can be difficult for us to slow down – our minds are always running and thinking! Thanks to our friends with Taurus and Cancer clout who naturally know how to do this, we can learn from their Moon and Venus attributes of sensitivit

Living with Less and Having More

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci In 1995 after establishing a successful residential construction company with my then husband, I found that although we were doing well financially – I was crashing. Or as a good friend of mine said, “I don’t really know what a nervous breakdown is, but if you’re not in one, you’re very close.” I had everything that was supposed to make me happy. The big beautiful home, cars, vacations, but something was faulty. After all of the new home building I had contracted in the outside world, something monumental was building inside of me. Something wasn’t right. It was time for a renovation, and for those of you have been through one

Labyrinth: Walking Into Ourselves

"If you have time to breathe you have time to meditate. You breathe when you walk. You breathe when you stand. You breathe when you lie down." – Ajahn Amaro I recall hearing the late Wayne Dyer comment that our lives could be lived as a meditation. Simply stated that the goal is to be fully present in all that we do, to recognize that everything provides an opportunity to become more deeply aware. However, as simply as this can be stated, why is it so hard to do? There appears to me to be three reasons: distractions, distractions, and more distractions!

Nurturing Natural Gifts

Each natal chart is like a snowflake, divinely individual! I have no doubt that each one of us comes to the planet with a special gift, something only we can bless the world with. The big question for each of us is; do we have the courage to share it? Unfortunately most of us were not brought up to follow our passion, but instead were brought up to conform to the best means of making a living. Parents are the first and most influential teachers of children. Joan Beck, author of How to Raise a Brighter Child states, “Every youngster comes with different inborn characteristics, and temperaments, and potentialities to which a parent must take into consideration in rearing him.” As an educator,

Star Fusion 2017: Resolve to Be Authentically You

As an Astrologer and Lifestyle Design Coach, what gives my life meaning and purpose is helping others to realize their “star” quality. It’s really quite a miracle how stars are born and it relates, I believe, to how we as humans come to live out our own light. In short, each star begins as clouds of dust and gases, and over time these particles fall into itself and the center grows denser. As the particles get hotter and hotter they start to stick and fuse together. This fusion becomes the energy source which switches the star on, and it begins to shine. Why is this significant?
