Jack and I watched the first season of the British T.V. show, Derek (starring Ricky Gervais), last week. I hadn't heard of it before Netflix sent a notice that it was now available for streaming, but what made me want to give it a try was the description of the main character. It said, "Derek… Continue reading Look here!
Have you ever just known that something was right? Even when it didn't make sense? Even when there was no way that it was possible? And have you ever held your belief anyway; persistently turning away from those voices of doubt and reason (the voices that were really in your own mind, but seemed to… Continue reading The open door of intuition: The Spirit of Truth
I've been hesitant about writing about today's topic/post for a while. I've really wanted to do it, but kept thinking, "Advice and suggestions are not the focus of this blog" and this seemed dangerously close to both. Yet, a little voice kept nudging me to do it. Last summer, Luke (our 5-year-old long-haired German Shepherd)… Continue reading Ask, wait, listen, trust…act
Most of us want to figure everything out. We want to squeeze this vast, incomprehensible "All" into something manageable and small enough to satisfy our reasoning, conscious minds, while there is a brilliant, genius Mind within every one of us just waiting to be given a chance. We are connected to (and an integral part of)… Continue reading Divine territory
8 years ago, I attended a retreat in Alabama and did a fire-walk. In the few days leading up to the actual walk, the leader kept encouraging us to listen to our inner voices, to be sure it would be safe for us (personally) to do. This involved getting quiet (both inside and out), settling… Continue reading Listening “in”
I was driving into my office on Friday morning and I saw a couple, loaded down with large backpacks, walking on the side of rt. 372. I knew them, (casually) and liked them very much, so turned around to see if they needed a ride. When they said yes, I knew that I was going… Continue reading The whisper
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote that Gordon Ramsay was coming to our little town (Cambridge NY) to film an episode of his new series, Hotel Hell. I also wrote that I didn't have any interest in watching it, which was true. During the buildup to the show, the town was buzzing with energy.… Continue reading What will my intuition toss up to me today?!
Many years ago, I was applying to graduate school and was trying to figure out which professors to ask for letters of recommendation. I kept feeling uneasy about one of them; a man who was very friendly and open around me, but something felt off. The night before I was going to ask him, I… Continue reading intuition: remembering the gift
Luke is our big, long-haired German Shepherd. He is a goofy, loveable guy who makes the most of his life with 6 cats, none of whom want to play with him. He was born different...he didn't even look like the other puppies in the litter, and by the time he was 6 weeks old, he… Continue reading Dissolving the fear in our minds
There is nothing more important than learning to listen to, trust, and follow our own inner voice. It is the best way to navigate the spiritual life, all of life. Many of us were told, growing up, that we didn't have the ability to decipher God's Will/The Still Small Voice within/Divine Guidance/Universal wisdom/Intuition, and were… Continue reading Navigating the spiritual life
