Releasing Materialism

Releasing Materialism

I have noticed a significant shift in the way I view material things since I said “yes” to living in the light.  The “proof was in the pudding” the other day when I was about to sit down for a family meeting with my husband.  He wanted to discuss the projects we wanted to complete around the […]

Waves in the Ocean

While on vacation in Costa Rica, I spent some time in the ocean.  The water temperature was perfect.  I was on my knees and fully immersed in it.  As I looked around at all of the waves, I was completely taken in by the symbolism.  I was reminded of what a great metaphor the ocean […]

Miracles in the Jungle

I just got back from vacation in Costa Rica with my husband.  Our two boys stayed with my in-laws while we enjoyed some quiet time together at a beautiful nature retreat.  Think hammocks…beautiful scenery…walking trails…the sound of monkeys howling…grasshoppers…crickets…bright-colored frogs.  It was so easy to just fall into a meditative state through just being still, looking […]

Freedom from Ashes

Note: I debated whether or not posting this today was appropriate given the tragic shooting that took place in CO leaving 14 people dead (at latest count) and 50 injured.  I decided it was indeed appropriate because this is an expression of how I was able to heal my own mind and live in peace […]

Living in the Overflow

On Sunday, we attended church service and the topic was “Interconnectedness”.  It was a great message and was a great reminder that we are not separate from one another…we are all one in Spirit.  One of the things the minister said that really struck a chord with me and, in particular, my husband was “we can […]

We Are More Than Flesh

On Saturday, my lesson in the A Course in Miracles workbook was “I am Spirit”.  I read it right after meditation, like I typically do, and this time I pushed myself to really practice the lesson for 5 minutes every hour as the workbook stated.  I was to repeat this statement as I practiced each hour: Spirit […]

A Poem:  Finding the Light Within

It’s been a long time (maybe 10 years) since I wrote a poem.  This one just came to me as I was driving my boys to the playground on Saturday.  I had to pull over to write it down.  I finally have an internet connection at home (we lost our cable due to the bad […]

From Darkness to Light

This week is the last of my 12-week Foundations of Spiritual Living course.  I just completed my final project, and thought I would share it with you all.  It’s a visual representation of how the course, and other spiritual development work I’m made a priority over the last 6 months, has impacted my life. The “before” […]

Perfect Storm

This weekend was truly a roller coaster ride…thrilling…scary…heart-pounding…and definitely had lots of ups and downs!  Here’s the rundown of events and the lessons I learned from it all.  Enjoy! In preparation for my husband being away for a week-long business trip, I went “big” grocery shopping on Friday so that I would have enough food for […]

Eternal Life, Part 2: My Path to Inner Peace

Earlier this week I shared my recent thoughts about immortality in a blog entitled “Eternal Life, Part 1“.  I also mentioned I would follow up with “part 2” and share the ways in which I am reminding myself of our real home (Heaven) so that I don’t get caught up in what I see “in the world” on a daily […]
