When Bad is Good

Obligatory disclaimer: My alter ego is a novelist. Now the rest of this will make more sense. Last month, I applied for a coveted and highly competed-for spot in an advertising newsletter for one of my novels, and was turned down. When something unpleasant happens like that, it’s always a big fat message from the […]

April Fool’s Day, Tarot, and Quantum Physics

That’s right, this blog post is going to compare a Tarot card to a physics lesson. I promise, it’ll be simple and easy to understand because, contrary to popular belief, I am not a particle physicist. A photon is the smallest particle of light we know about. In experiments, a single photon exists in many […]

Spring!

It’s here, it’s here! The Vernal Equinox was yesterday. Today is the first full day of spring. Daytime and nighttime are equal, and from now on every single day will be a little bit longer, and every night will be a little bit shorter, until the longest day of them all, the Summer Solstice. To many […]

Self-Sabotage Made Easy

Humans like to bitch. Actually, we love it. Our favorite pastime, I think, is complaining about all the things we don’t like. The politicians we don’t like get way more airtime than the ones we do like. And then they get elected. Because that’s the way the Universe works. What you focus on grows. It […]

Imbolc! Break’s Over!

Imbolc (2/2)is the Celtic holiday that celebrates the creative fire. And I feel it. This time of year I’m on fire, writing like a madwoman, feeding from a bottomless well of creativity. It’s the festival of Brighid, Goddess of the Forge and of Poetry, a Fire Goddess who inspired artists and creators of all sorts. […]

Manifesting Maniac

I knew this was coming. I had that moment last summer. I was meditating pretty regularly, out by my pond. Some days I was too entranced by my Koi to close my eyes, and just spent the time adoring them instead. I’m told that kind of appreciation is better than meditation, because that’s when you’re […]

Evolution Resolutions

The news hasn’t been very uplifting, of late. Everyone’s angry. The world is divided. The latest climate reports are dire. And no one seems to be doing anything to make anything better. Mostly, I think, because it’s hard to know what to do. What power does one little individual being have among 7.7 billion? That’s […]

Deepening the Solstice

The meaning for us this time of year goes deeper than we generally treat it. It’s bottomless, really, the well of knowing we can tap into right now. You feel it, don’t you? There’s nothing else like that feeling we call Christmas Spirit. Our hearts swell bigger, and we get choked up at the drop […]

How Vibration Creates Reality

This sounds like it’s going to be a long and complicated post, doesn’t it? I used to think so too, but it turns out the science behind the notion of vibration affecting the physical world can be understood very easily with some visual aids. We are told by spiritual teachers that we create our physical […]
