Breathe in Light – Transcendent Choice, Care and Healing in the Time of Corona

These are beyond troubling times.  In these – the current word to describe coronavirus’ world-wide outbreak is pandemic – and peaking times, we acutely search for meaning as keys to responding and resolving.

To uncover meaning and transcendent ways to cope, heal, protect, and grow through and beyond is all of what I want to offer – and as as a working definition of empowerment and transformation.

The Hamilton cast decided to plea to humanity and that’s the kind of courage we need in era of metoo, and the rise of hate groups

We are once again in this season of thanksgiving and miraculous divine rebirth.  May we all offer each other and ourselves our highest vision and trust in our owen real capacity to greatness – and not imagine restoring, but correspondingly recreating, that reflective world for us all to experience and share in the greater good.  We are all worth it.

Trip to Molokai reminded me that spiritual capital, human decency are the cost of rampant exploitation

Where love isn’t, inhumanness is; and suffering arises and inflicts terrible cost – on everybody.  To me what is really worth praying for is to recover our core strength to each stand up for our common humanity and hold ourselves accountable to behave accordingly.

Now: Merinda Empowerment and Recovery Audio and Guided Meditations for Children and Adults

I see the story as a key “handle” to self-healing, recovery, empowerment, and transformation. It is a simple metaphor that offers centering inner “links” to children and adults who feel they have lost their sense of self to be able to develop truly greater selves, and the wherewithal to successfully meet and transcend life’s challenges.

Bullying has finally become a key topic and recovery focus for our times. Merinda is fundamentally a story about understanding that bullying only continues to occur when we believe ourselves to be victims, which directly creates an inner “giveaway” of ourselves along with a covered-up “inner bully.” Like Merinda, we “please to survive.” Dysfunction creates and perpetuates unending power struggles in relationships endlessly ricocheting between dominance and submission. I am excited to tell Merinda’s story in all settings that commit to teambuilding, interdependence, new leadership skills, and healing partnerships.

Can You BE at Peace This Year?

It is so elusive – and how could it not be in our violent world – and yet it remains the great message of this holiday season – of every holiday season every December. Peace . . . peace . . . we are told to seek, in our hearts, in our world . . .The “present” of becoming more greatly present, aware, and empowered is all you can offer a world desperate to transform and transcend dysfunction.

Peace, Intimacy, Freedom

When peace, intimacy and freedom are missing or fractured, dysfunction, codependency, entanglement, addiction, hopelessness, blame, and violence result. These results extend their poisonous effects terribly, horribly into ours and others lives; and great suffering results and continues until recovery can occur. We functionally recover and transform into our higher selves whenever and however we heal and develop.

Self help exercise: acknowledge what you’re grateful for during times of loss

What truly satisfies our souls? When we are able to arrive at a fundamental place of unconditionally acknowledging what we are truly grateful for – past, present, and future (all really one source connection!) – we gracefully let go and let be . . . and come to an inner place of rest and opening to become.
