How does one release fear?

How does one release fear? How do I release fear? Is it as simple as saying “I release fear”? Yes and No. I have tried saying “I release my fear of ….” over and over with little success. What I have discovered is that I have to go deeper. To truly release fear we must […]

Laughing at the dirty dishes

Each Tuesday evening I teach a class at Ryerson University.  Whilst I enjoy the class immensely, I am quite drained by the time I arrive home.   Typically, I am ravenous, having not eaten since lunchtime.  The thought of relaxing in my warm kitchen, doggies at my feet, happily conversing with my children ushers me down […]

Despite thousands of miles that separate us physically Donovan is still “my” yoga teacher.  And I am still his “oracle”.  We chat at least once per week on Facebook, gchat, Skype or phone.  Typically, other than a “hail up” (a Jamaican way for saying “hi – how are you”), our conversations centre around two things:  […]

Blogger’s block

“Writer’s block” is the well-known bane of many authors.  It has happened to the famous, the amateur and the occasional writer.  It is the inability to produce written work on demand.  The words don’t flow, or if they do, they don’t make sense, seem stilted and unreflective of the sentiment or ideas the writer is […]

The blessing of womanhood

This is a long post courtesy of my wisewoman Facebook friend, Pj Samuels.  Her posts are always amazingly deep and insightful and I look forward to them every day, for they typically cause a shift, a validation or simply a lovely feeling.  This one, received a few days ago really honored my womanhood, affirmed my […]

Entering the Next Top Spiritual Author Competition is really forcing me to step up and step out! I realize that to win, I need to think and act on a scale mega sizes bigger than what I am used to. The competition is big – over 2,000 authors have entered. 250 will move to the […]

There is nothing wrong with negative emotions.  Our emotions, be they negative or positive, simply exist.  When we learn to accept our negative emotions i.e. the emotions that do not serve our good, that feed on our fears (the ultimate negative emotion), then we can learn what this emotion is telling us about ourselves.  Negative […]

Ever made a mistake?

Mistakes are part of the experience of being human.  They are part of the learning of life and sometimes provide us with the greatest growth on our journey.  Mistakes can also be traps, keeping us stuck in the past, forever recalling and rehashing the experience. What is a mistake? The word literally means “wrong grasp” […]

“They don’t really mean it”

As I adjust to living in Canada, one of the things I am noticing is how nice people are.  They smile, they connect in brief conversations, they hold the door open for me, they say “Cute doggies” to my three princesses when we are out for a walk, and so on – lots of little […]

Today is Thanksgiving Day in Canada.  As I celebrated and gave thanks with friends last evening, I wondered out loud “Where did the tradition of Canadian Thanksgiving come from”?  Most present proferred that it is an adoption of the American custom. Not satisfied with this explanation, I googled “History of Thanksgiving in Canada” and learned […]
