Learning to Forgive


Forgiveness is one of those words that has been hijacked by well-meaning parents, teachers and even religions. It is really a simple concept, but we may have forgotten that.

To forgive means that you would have said something differently, taken another course of action or allowed the other person’s view to be the guide.

Please join me as I talk about forgiveness, dogs and how to step into your abundance.

Isn’t it Time?


The two greatest needs every human has are to:

  • Be seen and
  • Be heard.

You can’t fulfill either need by looking for answers in your outer world. You have to go within and see your Self.

How? With meditation.

Heart Dancing is a way of life where you show up authentically. You are seen and heard, because you have first seen and heard your Self.

Heart Dancing MeditationsWhen you listen to the Heart Dancing Guided Meditations, you will discover that you can see your Self. Maybe for the first time in quite a while. You will also discover that your voice is heard, because you hear it.

The steps of the Heart Dance are easy. You knew them as a child, but you have forgotten. Allow these meditations to remind you.

The Universal music is playing – won’t you join me in the dance?

Relationships are a Container of Discovery


When you are in a relationship, it appears that you and the other person, object (or even a concept) is outside of you and separate. Continue reading

The Touch Point of Your Breath


Have you ever noticed that nature, when observed carefully, can teach you about how to live?

The rhythm of life pulses through nature unabated and Breatheuncurbed, flowing from Source into the physical and back to Source. Effortlessly moving from the infinite through the finite then back again. It is a cycle of energy that repeats itself effortlessly and continuously. You could even call it the cycle of renewal.

A colorful butterfly emerges from the cocoon, transformed from a slimy caterpillar. Trees are clothed in leaves of gold, red and brown when it is time to slow down for winter’s cold. Water evaporates from the ocean to form clouds that will eventually return the water back to the ocean.

What does anything of this have to do with you?

You are part of this never-ending cycle of life. You are the conduit for the same energy that moves the wind, creates elephants and touches the sky at night with color.

The only difference between you and nature is that you have a choice about how you express this life-force.

When you stay stuck in your emotions, the life-force is expressed differently than if you were at peace. When you choose to carry your anger or hurt into the next moment and the next, you react instead of respond to life.

Reactions spring from emotions. Response carries a deeper mindfulness and authenticity.

Emotions are really just energy in motion. They are a signal to you that your peace has been disturbed. E-motions are a tool, not a definition of who you are. Just like with any tool, you use it then set it aside.

What is a simple way to remember to release emotions? Just breathe.

Mark Nepo, a poet and philosopher, in The Book of Awakening, described the human condition this way:

Again, and again, we, more than any other life form, have this majestic and burdensome power

to harbor or release the impact of our experience.

Think of the breath as the bridge between the formless energy and yourself. Breathe in as you experience your life, breath out as you release.

Try it out now. Take a deep breath in through your nose and hold it, releasing it slowly through your mouth. Repeat two more times.

Don’t you feel calmer and more grounded? Your breath is the touch point for your peace. When you feel emotions that disturb your peace, return to your breath. It works every time.

The cycle of life can be found in the simplest of things. Welcome to another step in the Heart Dance.

What is your Success Mantra?


When I discover simple ideas that resonate with my soul, I share Success Mantrathem.

Gay Hendricks has written The Big Leap, a book that inspires, motivates and creates a guide for mastery of Self.

But the big take-away for me is his success mantra.

I changed it a bit and added a graphic that makes me happy every time I look at it. (Please share to inspire others to dance :-)).

Heart Dancing – It’s the Only Way to Live!

Mountains are Teachers


Mountains have been on my mind lately – probably because we just came back from a trip to Mt. Rainier in Washington State.

I actually devoted an entire Heart Dancing Radio show to what I learned during that trip.

Please give me feedback – was this 20 minutes useful? Did I give you any new ideas that perhaps made you think about something in your life a bit differently? Did you enjoy the show?

With the digital age, it gives us great freedom to express ourselves. I never thought I would host my own radio show (not in a million years!) But here I am, and I want to get better. So your feedback is very valuable to me.

Way of CreativeI truly am following the truth in myself, but what I don’t know is whether I am winning your heart???

Thank you, dear one, for sharing your thoughts, your hopes, your dreams and most importantly, your time.

I am honored to be here on the planet breathing the same air, hearing the wind and knowing that there is something bigger – for all of us!
