The Opportunity

What if I told you it was possible to find more time? More clarity? What if I could show you how to deal with stress better, as well as your emotions? What if I could show you tricks to organize your time better?   How would it feel to be more Compassionate (we all can do it, now can’t we)? How would it feel to think about your impact more with the planet and people, but just automatically and just as a habit? I can show you that being TRULY NATURAL isn’t hard or expensive and is actually easier and ...

Creative Visualization, Vision Boards, Dreaming…

Whatever you prefer to call it, it’s important to have a dream. But I have to be honest for a moment. The whole LOA “Law of Attraction” movement irks the hell out of me. It seems that every self-proclaimed guru or life coach I’ve known, barely has what they desire in life. They typically tend to be the unhappiest people I know, once you get to know them deeply. It’s not about material wealth…I’m talking life purpose and true happiness. They’re lonely, hate their jobs, or where they live. And openly express it, though it’s never direct (I’ve learned a ...

Planning Is Dreaming, Dreaming is Planning

Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities.   I recently saw that a connection of mine had been to Ireland one year and Greece another. There was a part of me that longed for that same storyline, because Rob and I have a passion for travel. We went to Italy in 2009, a cruise to the Caribbean in 2010, London, Edinburgh & Ireland in 2012, and Amsterdam in 2013. We have a much larger list of places to visit in the future. But that’s it for our overseas travel. Since 2013, we’ve set our sights ...

It’s Been A Whirlwind…

First, please accept a huge moment of gratitude from me. If you’re still with me and are reading this, you’ve put in effort I never expected. For that and so much more, I’m moved and am deeply inspired. You never know what to expect from friends, when you switch paths. Take a moment and take a deep breath in, feeling the gratitude I’m sending to you. I really mean that. Please do that for just a moment. Thank you! Now back to the journey from NY to ME. Moves are funny little incidents in our lives. However, I’m not sure ...

My White Blood Cell Nurses

This morning’s meditation involved a journey through my immune system. Ever done that? Keep reading, and I’ll explain the process… I’ve managed to come down with a cold of some sort, and I have a lil trick I use for expediting the healing process. I haven’t had to use it in quite some time luckily, but the stress of the move and work finally caught up to me. If you’ve been reading my story for the last couple of weeks, you understand what I’ve been up to/up against. What you may NOT know, is that I have an adorable tiny tattoo ...

Wellness First During the Holidays

BEFORE the most hectic part of the holiday season begins, start a breathing or mindfulness practice. I found two wonderful gurus during my cheffing days at Golden Sparrow, who are experts in mindfulness and have taught me the importance of quieting the mind – just in their presence. One is Dr. Michael Hynes, who is the superintendent for the PatMed school district. The other is Cory Muscara, who will no doubt be world-renown for his research and teachings. I’ve seen how their meditation and mindfulness practices have made them more approachable and calm in hectic daily interactions, so I know ...

P.S.A. (or Public Service Update!?!)

First, a moment of gratitude for you. I never could have imagined the outpouring of love since I announced my departure, nor the feedback I’ve gotten from friends about how I’ve helped them on their journey. Some are private clients, some are clients of Golden Sparrow, and some are people I’ve met thru the years of teaching or vending at various fairs and events. Second, with all that love, comes a host of questions that you have, as well as questions I have about the logistics of all this. To make this transition as easy as possible, I figured it ...

And Then I Made The Offer…

For the last two years, my husband Rob and I have been looking to move off of Long Island. We’re not used to being in the same place or job for too long – it seems a decade is our max on anything. When you combine two creative people with LOTS of goals, ambitions, drive, and things they like to dabble in and Master, there’s little room for stagnation. There’s a lot of impatience, honestly. We’ve travelled around upstate, visited PA, and toyed with the idea of North Carolina. I went to college in Mars Hill near Asheville, so I ...
