Holding Space For Others

Holding Space For Others

As the name and number lit up my iPhone, I felt a bulge in my throat and slight tickle of nerves fluttering in my chest.  Although our friendship lasted over three decades, a chasm developed between us. Alignment and soul connection to my childhood friend dissipated. In my younger years, I eagerly absorbed everyone’s problems and relished helping others.  Yet, as time marched on, the drain from...

I Don’t Hate Mondays Anymore

As the mist dewed my windows with its weepiness, I awoke with a bulge in my throat.  Rolling over in my bed, the melodious sounds of the birds urged me to rise.  Yet, the panic felt throughout my body froze my will to leave my bed.  Finally giving in to the unavoidable, I slid out of the bed and faced the reality of a new week.  This was my waking cycle prior to the pandemic. But now, I don’t...

Forgive But Never Forget What Happened

Forgive But Never Forget What Happened

Trapped in a seaweed web in the deep end of agony. The burden of bitterness tangled in its own salty debris.  As the anchor of resentment grounds the journey to a new beginning, freedom remains elusive floating in the sea of possibilities. Just above the surface on the ocean skin, the sun skates upon the glassy water shining down its warmth. Golden rays twinkle and reflect the beauty of being...

Don’t Flood Others With Your Stormy Weather

Everyone has off days for one reason or another.  Whether it is a lack of sleep or hormones, we all have days of discomfort, short-temperedness, or general unhappiness.  In order to take full responsibility for the energy we put into the world, a crucial choice surfaces.  We can scowl, project, and punish the innocent bystanders for our pain.  Or, we can be fully present in each moment to ensure...

Toxic Amnesia Distorts Reality

Toxic Amnesia Distorts Reality

The snarl on her face accentuated the deep bark of her punishing voice.  As she entered the room with her family, a cloud of negative energy enveloped her as she lashed out for no apparent reason.  These actions doused the room with her fiery rage.  Her words whipped the unsuspecting who felt their sense of peace immediately evaporate.  And, the happiness felt before her entrance vanished...

Genuine Joy Requires Deep Excavation

Inspired by the quotes, memes, and posts of our peers, educators swam to the harrowing deep end of the ocean and back to the shore.  As we finished the school year in 2021 with one final stroke, a deep, soulful exhale floated out of our listless bodies into the thick, summer air.  Although the heat blazed upon our shoulders as we start to climb out of the shallow end, we slowly found the edge...

Letting Go Creates A Flow

Letting Go Creates A Flow

At times, life appear effortless and easy flowing like beautiful white-capped billows of water dancing down a rugged mountainside.  In these moments, a sigh floats into the air and dissipates in joy.  But when the flow ebbs, iron fists forward push with all of their might to move things along.  Yet, the harder the push; the more resistance comes into our pathway.  If we unclench our grasp,...

Nourish Your Soul To Flourish In Life

Intuitively, we feel a magnetic pull to the outdoors. It is as if our heart tugs us into the open air in order to take a breath from pace of life. When in nature, putting down the burdens you carry occurs in a natural way.  Without thinking, you relax into the lushness of the flora and restore through soothing of the waters.  Yet, as hustle and bustle replace rest and relax in our hectic...

Being Imperfect Is Perfect

Being Imperfect Is Perfect

How many times have you scrutinized your decisions and wished you made another choice?  When you have an unfavorable outcome to your selection, reevaluation feels appropriate.  Yet, as you examine yesterday’s thought process with today’s mindset, you devalue the importance of appreciating where you were.  Looking back on yesterday’s choices with today’s presence proves to be futile. In...

Discernment as a Guiding Force

Discernment as a Guiding Force

One commonly used Jungian phrase in spiritual circles, “what you resist persists,” describes the phenomenon of avoidance, usually in facing an uncomfortable situation.
