Tweet May 1 is the beginning of Beltane according to the Celtic calendar. Beltane is the season of summer: the time of lush growth, fruit and flower, pleasure and sensuality. It is the season for celebrating the joys of being embodied. Conscious embodiment, the intentional and full engagement of our bodies, is critical to Conscious [...]
The most healing thing you can do when faced with challenging emotions is to stop. Notice how you’re feeling. Breathe. Find your center. Connect with your Essential Self. Know that help is yours. Let love fill you. Be peace.
When you remember who you are, you don’t need to change anything outside your self. Everything you need is right here.
And here’s the really beautiful part: when you let yourself feel your feelings, when you create a compassionate space inside yourself for all of who you are, you no longer need to dump your dense energy into the Collective Unconscious, where it might result in someone uttering an angry word, or hitting a child, or picking up a gun, or dropping a bomb.
Never underestimate the power of a little self-compassion.
For me, Celtic music is near the top of the list for healing and uplifting music, probably because I love Ireland so much and offer workshops in western Ireland. Of course there are many types of Celtic music. I love tapping my toe to a reel or a jig (ideally at a house party or in a small pub for a live performance!) When it’s calming or healing I need, though, I look to sacred music.
Two of my favorite healing performers from Ireland are Noirin Ni Riain, whose unique and exquisite voice has brought her international acclaim (including singing three times for the Dalai Lama) and Brother Seamus Byrne, a monk who brings ancient Celtic Christianity to life.

Tweet The fourth step of my Cornucopia Method of Manifestation is “Raise Your Vibration.” Quite simply this means to shift your energy so that it is more aligned with your Authentic Desires. How do you do that? You can move (dance, walk, run). You can chant or sing. You can spend some time in nature. [...]
Tweet Two quickies today…I ran across a couple of wonderful resources to share with you. 1st, these videos from Vinca von Muhlenberg about Money Walls on Heather Gray’s Soul Filled Cafe blog: http://www.soulfilledlife.com/2011/04/20/vinca/ So powerful and thought-provoking! Then, I got an email from Victoria Castle, author of The Trance of Scarcity, with a little audio [...]
Tweet How well do you know your inner critic? You know, that voice that finds fault with much of what you do, picks apart your ideas, and cautions you to do the “reasonable,” “safe” or realistic thing? My inner critic and I go way back. In fact, when I became aware of my inner critic, [...]
