Thought for the Day: Raise your awareness to your inner chatter

Some start the day by pulling a tarot or oracle card, and I very frequently do that. But I also practise a little bibliomancy, randomly opening a page in one or more treasured books.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Most days I work with either Embers: One Ojibway’s Meditations by Richard Wagamese, or Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic… Continue reading Thought for the Day: Raise your awareness to your inner chatter

Trust Your Song

I am reading Julia Ostara’s book The Girl Who Dances With DeLight, which guides the reader through a one-month journey with the moon. And I love the synchronicity: my online Moon course, published earlier this year, is Dancing with the Moon. Clearly LaLuna inspires rhythm and movement in us all. Today I’m working with Day… Continue reading Trust Your Song

Divine Imperfection and Repeated “Mistakes”

Last January, I shared my thoughts on Divine Imperfection: the Joy of Making Mistakes, inspired by a Neil Gaiman quote from 2011. The original post resonated with many people, and I received several private messages and emails with thoughts and comments that folks hesitated to post publicly. And that’s okay too! A common thread in these private… Continue reading Divine Imperfection and Repeated “Mistakes”

The need for an Anam Cara, a Soul friend

I often turn to John O'Donoghue's beautiful book Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom for inspiration.

For more info about bibliomancy, click here. This passage… Continue reading The need for an Anam Cara, a Soul friend

Connecting​ with Mama Earth in liminal times

This weekend in Canada — and many other countries — we celebrate the Labour Day long weekend. For me, especially in my school years, that weekend marked the end of summer and the return to school the day after Labour Day. In many ways, it also marked a new year... new school clothes, new books,… Continue reading Connecting​ with Mama Earth in liminal times

My body is a wilderness

Oh how I love these words from Ojibway author Richard Wagamese, who left us earlier this year to walk with The Ancestors. His words inspire me daily, especially in his book Embers: One Ojibway's Meditations. "My body is a wilderness. To understand that I need to inhabit it. I need to contemplate, meditate, and reflect… Continue reading My body is a wilderness

The Full Moon in Capricorn is a few days away on Saturday, July 8th at 9:06 PM Pacific Time.

My theme for this month's lunar journey is Authentic Self… Continue reading Reconnecting to the Inner Fire of our Authentic Self

Embracing the Waning Years of your Journey

And know this: even though one may be in the waning years, the journey still has far to go. And if you are in the waxing years, know that there is still much to learn and experience, and that spending time with the Mothers and Crones can illuminate your journey in ways you might not have imagined.
