Befriending Time: MacGyver Style

clock with image of hand holding paperclip. text reads Befriending Time, MacGyver Style

Time is one of those concepts that would likely implode our brains if we ever fully grasped it. All my brain can manage to hold onto is a collection of little stories that secretly hold the definitions of time.

One of these stories comes from the show MacGyver, a 1980's American television program I loved to watch as a child. It was about a hunk of a man with a feathered mullet who always seemed to find himself in a room with a ticking time bomb. And yet, as the seconds counted down, he resou…

A Channeled Interview with Venus

We often think about love as a feeling: love for others, love for yourself.

But there's another sort of love that is not a human feeling.

Love that is a universal truth.

Love that is an energetic source.

Love that keeps our souls alive

It's the oxygen all around us that is there to nurture our connection to one another!

It's this kind of love that we got to explore in this special interview with Venus, the Goddess of LOVE.

We got to speak with Venus through an unconscious channel and are…

The Gates of Avatars

My most recent celestial interests [ok, ok…obsessions 🤓] are pointed at four fascinating areas of the sky called The Gates of Avatars. As with other “special” points in astrology, like the Galactic Center for example, these locations hold a gateway to a powerful energy source. An individual who has a planet (or their ascendant) at one of these points in their natal chart is born with the potential to access and utilize this source of energy during their lifetime. 

Although, just because one…

When You PUSH Yourself Too Hard

When You PUSH Yourself Too Hard: 5 Practices to get your life back. Image of woman with head collapsed on a desk

We all have a little Inner Drill Sergeant in us. You know, the voice that drives you along and tells you to push harder and do more?

While some might find benefit from more of the internal nagging, in many cultures it can be such a strong force that it drives us to dis-ease. In Japan there is even a name for it: karoshi, which literally means “death by overwork”. But no one works longer hours than the Americans. And this is nothing to brag about. 

Stress and fatigue are the first rebellious …

Are you a STARSEED?

Do you feel a longing for a far away home?

Do you feel inherently comfortable with topics like outer space beings, altered states of consciousness, or metaphysics?

Do you experience feeling "different" from most others?

Do you often find human behavior to be perplexing and counter-intuitive, "Why do they do that?!"

Do you seem to have an extrasensory awareness - seeing through situations and people to a deeper knowing? 

If these questions touched on a deep inner knowing YOU MIGHT BE A STA…

Guilt: The Misguided Crime-Stopper

It happened again this morning. I was scraping the ice off the windshield of my car and I noticed this all-too-familiar feeling inside me.

It was part anxiety, part guilt. The ominous feeling that I had done something wrong. 

And I was already punishing myself, imaginary whip in hand, deep in self-flagellation. 😔

Had I actually committed some egregious act? NO! Absolutely not!

But somehow, when I wasn’t paying attention, my psyche had been doing a slow rolodex crawl through the recent his…

A Message from Mother Whale

A few years ago my family gave me a special Mother’s Day gift - A Whale Watching trip!

I love the ocean and I love whales and dolphins, so I was thrilled!

Soon after we pushed off the dock I started to get seasick. UGH. 

On this rare opportunity to visit my underwater friends I found myself with my head between my knees! Lifting my eyes up and down as I could tolerate, I saw pods of dolphins jumping and playing in the water.

The Galactic Center and Your Astrological Chart

What is the Galactic Center in your astrological chart?


I have been fascinated by the Galactic Center. I learned that it was the center of our galaxy, and that those with aspects to it in their natal charts have a powerful ability to bring in Universal wisdom.  I searched the internet for some specific information so that I could apply it in my own and others natal charts, but found very little on the topic. So, I turned to an expert!

I asked Allice Haidden, an astrologer who has been p…

A Channeled interview with St. Nicholas

Greetings and Happy Holidays!

I asked my 10-year-old son, if he had a chance to ask Santa Claus anything, what would he ask?

At first he said, "I'd ask for an iPad" 😂

But I clarified: "Not to ask anything FROM St. Nick, but ABOUT St. Nick"

Aha! He got it. "I'd ask where he lives, what other names he goes by, and how he gets presents all around the world in just one night"

We each have life experiences that start to (or attempt to) awaken us at different points in our lifetimes.

Our own Soul has laid out a timeline for these awakenings to occur.

Though we often experience these as spontaneous events, they are well crafted and synchronized to take us along our intended spiritual path.

Sometimes these experiences stand out as “special”, like noticing that our Spirit Guides are speaking to us, finding profound spiritual inspiration while being in nature …
