No More Suffering in Silence

For much of my life I felt like a fraud.  On the outside, everything looked wonderful.  I was married to an amazing man, had a six-figure job, had two healthy kids, owned a home, etc.   On the inside, I was a complete mess. Although I was indeed “succeeding” according to the world’s standards, I never […]

Let Freedom Ring!

While in meditation on Monday of this week, I kept hearing “Let Freedom Ring.”  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. famously said this at the end of his “I Have a Dream” speech.  I believe this was my grandmother’s way of connecting with me as the 4th of July was approaching.  She passed away three and […]

The Art of Silencing the Mind

One of the questions I most frequently get asked is, “How do you quiet your thoughts during meditation?”  I remember wondering the same thing at the beginning of last year when I got serious about practicing meditation daily.  I tried many different types of meditation, and was always hoping the next technique would be the […]

The One Thing in the World that Offers Everything You Want

While we are momentarily walking the Earth, there is one thing that offers everything we want.  In the instant that it is offered and received, complete peace is the outcome.  What is this one thing that is so powerful that it can bring the Peace of God in an instant?  Forgiveness. I remember when I […]

A Powerful Way to Grow Your Relationship with God

As I was preparing for the next From Stress to Peace class, I ran across the following quote from A Course in Miracles: “The whole reality of your relationship with Him lies in our relationship to one another.” It was a line that I highlighted in the book back in 2007, around the time I […]

Peaceful Mothering

Happy Mother’s Day!  As I sit here in my office with Calm Meditation Radio playing in the background, I am reflecting on the significant shift I have experienced in my feelings about motherhood over the last year and a half. When I was at my lowest point, in January of last year, I was not […]

How to Be at Peace No Matter What

There is an unspoken belief in the world that suffering is required.  If something that we deem as bad happens, then we must respond in a particular way.  We must get angry, be upset, get revenge, hold grudges, and more.  That is a myth that must be released by anyone who desires inner peace.  The […]

Embodying the Divine

The memory of the time in my life when I was feeling stressed, out-of-balance, overwhelmed, worried about the future, resentful of past hurts, ashamed of my mistakes, annoyed with a number of people, and completely unsure of how to be at peace lies so vividly in my mind.  I am grateful that I haven’t forgotten […]

The Secret to Reclaiming Peace in any Moment

I used to be totally swayed by the occurrences of a given day.  If the news of the day was about a terrorist attack, I would immediately step into fear.  If someone disagreed with me, I immediately began to judge them and run down a list of all the reasons they were wrong and I […]
