Four Women Meet Old Soul

An Old Soul Archaeology parable on embracing intuition and creativity.


One dark and starry night, four women descended into the river of their dreams and met the Sage Feminine also known as Old Soul.

Somewhere in the ascent from the sacred waters the first woman, having seen Old Soul in all her wisdom, lost her mind and went walking, lost in the desert until the end of her days.

The second woman said to herself cynically, “What a silly dream. There is no ...

Go Jump Off A Cliff – Life is a Risk

“We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.” – Kurt Vonnegut

Every time we make a decision, not only do we stand to lose something, we stand to gain as well. Our job is to take the steps to ensure that we gain much more than we lose.

Living a better life means that we need to learn what risks are acceptable to live the life that we truly desire. Not leaving the house ...

Life with a Capital L

Are you LIVING?? REALLY LIVING? And not just dying a little each day? Because after all, we are all headed in the same direction. How we go is another story. Living with a lowercase l is more like dying a little every day.

Stoking Your Centered-In-Self Fire

Selfish? ME???

Oh gawd yes. I just didn’t know it.

Selfishness isn’t always about not being generous. It’s about being self-centered.

It’s the need to always be right.
It’s the need to be the center of attention.
It’s the need to be validated.
It’s the need to take credit.
It’s the need to be a martyr.
It’s the need to blame.
It’s the need to complain.
It’s an entitlement issue, and not a good one.

Being “centered-in-self” is the antidote.

Aren’t they the same thing? ...
