I Am A Tree Today


View this post on Instagram Today was all about trees. I started my yoga practice amongst the trees, then I walked through the most beautiful neighborhood full of trees. I felt their amazing energy. Trees are the quintessential observers of life. We are very much like trees. We stand up tall, we have a crownContinue reading “I Am A Tree Today”

Making Days Count!


The first month of Quarantine proved to be frustrating–up and down and all around in emotions. I developed some bad habits and I don’t feel good. I’m happy to report that the next round of 30 days is going to be far different! Instead of watching the news on television, reading news on the internetContinue reading “Making Days Count!”

Angel Activity


I remember a time when if I were to read that title, “Angel Activity” I wouldn’t even bother reading the rest. I never believed in angels. It sounds really sweet and spiritual but I never gave it much thought. Our beliefs are sometimes hard to bust through, but it’s pretty incredible when they BUST! Recently,Continue reading “Angel Activity”

Malibu Hikers!


“What do these women wish to achieve by hiking up these hills in Malibu?” Imagine a very proper Brittish accent with a sort of chronic, cynical way of being in life asking this question, I was telling her about the out of town visitors I’ve been leading on private hikes in Malibu. Her words and the toneContinue reading “Malibu Hikers!”

Love Hurts


I remember my first date EVER–the song playing on the radio was “Love Hurts” by Nazareth (https://youtu.be/6pHNkOQCIzkLove Hurts) Nick picked me up in his classic Oldsmobile, can’t remember the year but it was old.  When he backed out of the driveway,  his car wouldn’t go into forward drive! It was quite a scene. So, weContinue reading “Love Hurts”

Their View Mirror


I have noticed something that I just keep getting clearer and clearer about it.  Every time I get down or go into a depression, it is almost always because I am viewing my life from someone else’s view of me. To say it another way, I love my little life.  I live in a funkyContinue reading “Their View Mirror”

Learning A New Body Language


If your body could learn a new language that could supersede everything you’ve ever believed about health and all the limits we set up around it, would you want to know about it? What if you had an energetic intelligence within you that would allow you to transcend all of your physical ailments?  Would youContinue reading “Learning A New Body Language”

Your Body–Friend or Foe?


I massaged a woman yesterday who was so rushed and stressed and oh so attached to her pain!  She ran in complaining about the parking situation and she did not seem ready to lay down on a massage table and receive. She is a former therapist at the clinic I work in so I knewContinue reading “Your Body–Friend or Foe?”

18 And I Like It!


A strange phenomenon has been happening for me–slowly, the more I am focusing on me with no male distractions, the more I seem to be reverting to my 18th year. This feeling comes in glimpses and memories pop in sporadically… The more time I spend ON MY OWN, the more I take on the meContinue reading “18 And I Like It!”

Your Body–Built To Move!


As I’ve been recovering from straining some ligaments in my foot, I haven’t been exercising very much at all.  My yoga practice is not happening because that involves lots of foot work.  I haven’t been huffing and puffing up the hiking trails and the biking I’ve done is pretty tame.  I’ve just really wanted toContinue reading “Your Body–Built To Move!”

Caged Animals


I went to see the movie, “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”.  It was a really good movie and I noticed something that we are all subject to–limited access to nature. Whenever we enclose ourselves with limitations, it creates a bit of frustration and sometimes rage!  No question about it, even though humans areContinue reading “Caged Animals”

Yoga–Open Heart Surgery!


I’ve been meeting many people who really want to develop a yoga practice.  Their first couple of experiences, though, have been challenging. When I hear this, I always ask them, “how bad do you want to practice yoga, what are you willing to go through, are you up for being annoyed, how about feeling frustrated?”Continue reading “Yoga–Open Heart Surgery!”

Diary of A Massage Therapist


I feel fortunate to have learned the skill of giving massage.  I am a nurturing,  compassionate person so being a massage therapist is in sync with those natural qualities. I am so very impressed with people who trust enough. When you think about it, a perfect stranger is entrusting their body to me, another perfectContinue reading “Diary of A Massage Therapist”

Define The Moment


DEFINE THE MOMENT I saw those bold words on a T-shirt as I was passing 2 guys riding my mountain bike.  I had been in my head about life, love,  and friends and that phrase just hit me hard at that moment. I decided to DEFINE THE MOMENT. There I was on a Sunday morningContinue reading “Define The Moment”

3 Questions Shamanic Healers Ask


We were on our way to the Hollywood Bowl.   While picking up a friend, I broke into  song.   I was singing it with heart.   My friend said, “that is one of the questions Shamanic Healers ask their patients…when is the last time you sang?”   Cool, I was doing something right. Then,  driving inContinue reading “3 Questions Shamanic Healers Ask”
