Talking Heads

Talking Heads

You know that ‘my head’s so full it’s going to explode’ feeling you get when you have a bad cold?  That’s how your energy head feels when you’re a Talking Head.  It’s actually heavy to the hands of the healer.  (If the healer accesses energy through felt-sense or clairsentience.) Guess what?  We’re all a bunch … Read more

Is Your Energy Running Or Are You Running Energy?

Is Your Energy Running Or Are You Running Energy?

Week after week clients talk about pace, transitions and time.  The pace discussion sounds like this: “…”  Got that?  Yeah.  It went by too fast for you to quite get it.  Want me to say it again?  “…”  Right.  Crazy-making fast paced living is what we’re all up to. The transition conversation is like this:  … Read more

Hanging Out, Hanging In, Hanging On To Your Story.  A Strategy for Letting Go

Hanging Out, Hanging In, Hanging On To Your Story. A Strategy for Letting Go

Did you know CK has a classroom?  It’s true.  It’s a spacious place in Boston – top floor, skylight, open concept – and some great learning happens there.  I have the privilege of being the Teach at the front of the room.  Yet it’s often CK who gets big learnings from the students who gather … Read more

Clear Your Chakras – Avoid Pitfalls and Pit stops!

Clear Your Chakras – Avoid Pitfalls and Pit stops!

Warning:  The statement I’m about to make is a generalization. I like to think of chakras as the energy centers that metabolize life, moment by moment, experience by experience, interaction by interaction.  They’re informed by larger energy constructs such as the aura or electromagnetic field, the energy of the Earth and the Cosmos, by other people’s energy, and … Read more

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

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

The White Light Caper

The White Light Caper

You’re spiritual, you’ve got a practice that you’ve developed over time, combining skills and tools you’ve learned from workshops, your readings, perhaps including well-intentioned teachings from a yoga teacher or Reiki Master or other healing practitioner. Is one of the tools in your toolkit White Light? What do you know about white light and its … 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
