I’m Working So Hard My Chakras Are Sweating!  (or, thoughts about having a regular clearing practice)

I’m Working So Hard My Chakras Are Sweating! (or, thoughts about having a regular clearing practice)

Is it true?  Does the good life, the good stuff, the things we want and desire only come through hard, hard work?  I sometimes refer to difficult work as ‘pushing a boulder uphill with my nose.’ One of my clients, a delightful woman named Lucy (not her real name), recently told me that she was … Read more

What’s it Gonna Be – Resolution or Intention?

What’s it Gonna Be – Resolution or Intention?

Have you made your New Year’s resolutions yet?  How long is your list?  I remember doing a list in my 30’s that had about 17 things on it.  Within a month, I was 0 for 17.  And then I gave up resolutions altogether. Here’s a definition for ‘resolution.’  1. The process of resolving something, such … Read more

Another Damn Sunny Day in Arizona

Another Damn Sunny Day in Arizona

My mom used to laugh whenever she told the story of Hummy – my aunt – calling to complain about the amazing weather in Arizona.  In New Jersey it would be snowing, school cancelled, hours of shoveling behind us and more awaiting us – and Hummy would call and say, ‘It’s another damn sunny day … Read more

Anxiety – Stopping the Madness, Part 2

In the last post, I described the process for closing down an overactive vibratorium – the 2nd chakra oscillating magnet attracting energies that match your go-to emotions.  I’ve been using anxiety as the emotion of choice to illustrate the point about setting the 2nd chakra between 10 and 25% open.  (Most of us run around with our … Read more

Anxiety – Stopping the Madness, Part 1

Anxiety – Stopping the Madness, Part 1

Anxiety.  It’s a  7-letter word.  All of us experience it, some more than others. When I ask people to describe their anxiety, I often learn that it feels like a pressurized bubble located somewhere in the range of the neck to the groin.  The pressure and pushing increases, and the breath gets shallow, the butterflies … Read more

Zoe’s Lesson on Karma

Zoe’s Lesson on Karma

Sometimes people ask me about karma and how to know when a karmic lesson is in play. (Sidebar: I chose the word ‘play’ deliberately.  Even karmic lessons can be viewed through a playful lens.  Why does everybody get so damn serious about healing?  Sometimes it’s downright hilarious to see how skillfully we create our experiences … Read more

A story about The Void and Manifestation

A story about The Void and Manifestation

One day a woman woke up from her current state of awareness and realized that she was definitely doing her work in the world, but not in the way that she wanted. After a month or two alternating between a self-recriminating slug-fest and the terror of ‘what next’, she surrendered and entered the Void. Soon … Read more

Chakra Khan (aka Jill Leigh)

Chakra Khan (aka Jill Leigh)

It’s a big name to live up to, I have to tell you!  It’s my favorite nickname of all time, and I’ve had a few.  Most of them made me squirrely under my skin.  Like – ‘this is how you think of me?’  I guess I had higher expectations of myself than most of my … Read more
