Themes and Prayer April 2020

Endurance, the Yoga Lady® theme, Jackie Valdez’s monthly word, empathy, and wisdom from the Attunement Transformation, a group devoted to healing via energetic meditation – a perfect  “holy trinity” of connected themes for April! I’m impressed, but not wholly surprised at how serendipitously these fell into place. […]

April 2020 Theme – Endurance

Like this flower, we'll find a way toward the light. We will seed and grow again.

April’s theme came to […]

Themes and Prayer March 2020

Kindness is the Yoga Lady® theme for March. Jacqueline Valdez, Intuitive Counselor and my spiritual mentor, has offered respect as the “word of the month” for her group, Saints in Training. And perseverance is the word from Attunement Transformation, the energetic healing circle I more recently joined. […]

February 2020 Theme – Harmony

Harmony is my theme for February. As I’ve been doing for some years now, I allow the theme to come spontaneously, opening my mind to “catch” the first thing which surfaces. Then I meditate on it and relate it to my circumstances. I start and end all […]

Theme Thoughts: February 2020

It’s February and once again I’m weaving together my theme of harmony and the “word of the month”  from my meditation groups. Jackie Valdez – Intuitive Counselor and Saints in Training Founder – has given wisdom as her “word of the month” with intellectualism as its saboteur. […]

2020 Theme – Courage

Recently I reviewed a 2013 Oprah interview with Maya Angelou in which Angelou emphasized that courage is the most important of the virtues. It takes courage to practice all the others and live a virtuous life. Courage comes from the Latin cor, which means heart. In one […]

January Theme – Beginner’s Mind

It’s a new year in a new decade and for this month’s theme I chose “beginner’s mind.” It came to me before dawn on New Year’s Day. Putting on my Uggs and wrapping myself in my warm comfy robe, I stepped outside before the sun peeked above […]

Serving others,
As I move toward the love and light of God,

Princess Warrior

Feet planted wide apart, she sets her stance
Grounding herself, with strength and focus
Legs weighted evenly, front to back
Feet and toes connected to Mother Earth

Arms reaching from heart center
Open, proud and courageous
Divine feminine willing her strength
Protective, watchful and powerful

Back arm reaching through fingertips
Cognizant of her past, inclusive of all
Looking beyond front arm fingertips
Projecting her domain and […]
