CAPTURE YOURSELF AS YOU CAPTURE THE DAY

Do you recognize your soul? Are you living in harmony with your true nature? I have discovered that we can go long lengths of time denying our core self. This may come at a cost, but can be a valuable learning experience. It is easy to get drawn away from what syncs us with the universe, those areas of personal bliss. This morning I purposefully made my way to the local lake at sunrise to soak up the sunrise. It is early November in Ottawa, Canada. Many of the leaves have fallen. The beauty of the sun emerging in the midst of the cool air and the song of the water birds struck deep in the heart of me. It...

THE CLOCK ON THE WALL

You can shift your future if you change your perspective. How times change. A number of years ago, I had a beautiful clock on my dining room wall. Despite its beauty, I found the constant ticking of the seconds rather disturbing. The sound symbolized seconds of my life slipping away through my fingers. I made a conscious decision to do away with all of the clocks in my home. The only place I could view the time was on my microwave, my phone, or from my daughter's alarm clock in her room. For seven years I enjoyed the peace of being free from the sound of tick-tock, until... Last evening I was shopping with my daughter. We came across a nice clock that I...

40 DAYS

The new year is just around the corner. How has your year been? I will bet that your year has seen its share of ups and downs. Some things that life throws at us are out of our control. Let go of what you cannot control. Much of our life experience, however, is within our control, yet we forfeit the responsibility and care; it is easier to mindlessly go with the daily flow. Before we know it another year has passed and we may be wondering if we should have taken advantage of opportunities for improvement. Taking charge of our health and wellness, for example, is often not a priority until it is too late. If we count forward from today,...

Healing. Ready. Set. Oh wow.

There are times in life when we are forced to heal. We have no choice. We do the work or we face dire consequences. Perhaps there has been a medical diagnosis that requires a change in lifestyle. Perhaps there has been a death in the family that must be grieved, and eventually the emotional pain subsides. Healing in this case being a natural progression. Other healings take conscious effort, such as removing the blocks in our lives that are holding us back from finding peace, or from living our soul purpose. Like many people, my personal healing has taken decades. Some of my healing has come naturally over time, with age. Other aspects of my healing has come with great...
