Staying anchored

Staying anchored

This spring and summer, the simple act of drying flowers has become a ritual. It takes very little time, but I engage in it everyday. I look outside to see the flowers growing. Mainly, I enjoy their color, texture and smell, yet I’m also keeping watch to I know if it’s time to gather the […]

I feel the call of summer

I feel the call of summer

The summer solstice has just passed and the warm dry air is arriving, pushing away the gentleness of spring, the finicky nature of spring’s cold, then hot, then rainy days. I feel the heat on my body and the suns rays which can burn my sensitive skin. In some ways, I feel like I’m waking […]

Tricky Thoughts

My clients that do the deepest work with me know more about their thoughts than they did before. They learn how to be with them, observe them and even love them whether the thoughts are true or not, helpful or hurtful, positive or negative.

It’s been a crazy world swirling around me over the last few months

…I’ve got not time. …I can’t possibly get that completed. …There’s no way I can fit anything else in my day.   I’m sure many of you have had similar thoughts before, maybe even right now in your life, or maybe last year or last month.  Well, I’m right in the middle of crazy right […]

Everyday rituals

Everyday rituals

I’m not the kind of spiritual practitioner or person who can stick with the same daily ritual for months on end. I get bored, the rituals don’t fill me up as much, or my sleep cycle gets out of wack (thanks insomnia). And yet I crave those touchstones in my mornings and evenings, those bookends […]

Going analogue- aka playing outside this summer

Going analogue- aka playing outside this summer

I’ve been spending a lot of time in the digital realm. In the last 2 months I’ve held free webinars on email sanity, supported a bunch of people through the Take Back your Inbox challenge and created the Tame your Tech Chaos masterclass. I’ve done all this focused work so I can go analogue as […]

Emotions behind organizing- memories, loss and when to let go

Emotions behind organizing- memories, loss and when to let go

You can organize all the possessions that you already have. To do that takes patience and forethought as to where to store things and how to access them. You can sort and contain everything without ever getting rid of anything, but the emotional challenge in organizing comes from de-cluttering or purging.  Purging your stuff is the […]

Bye-Bye art calendars

Bye-Bye art calendars

I’ve always wanted to find the perfect solution for each need or circumstance. Huh? What do you mean? Well…I’m always collecting purses and bags trying to find the right fit and function for different situations. I’m always trying out new storage containers and I used to try and find the perfect paper calendar each year. But a few […]
