This is what happens when you say YES

When I clearly heard “prayer artist” in the night 11 months ago, I had a choice. Even in the dark in the middle of the night, I knew I had a choice. But here's the problem: My body voted one way. My heart another.

The Romance is 10 years old and it just got better

My first book, Writing Down Your Soul came out ten years ago on January 1, 2009. Eleven days later I gave my first public talk at Wings Bookstore in St Petersburg Florida. I had taught a live course on deep soul writer at First Unity in St Pete a few months prior, so I had quite a…

A Winter Solstice Prayer

Last Sunday I spoke about how sacred December is for me. Every year, December ushers something in, something I’m not expecting or requesting. It has happened so often that I am certain that Something else guides each of my new beginnings. Something Sacred. Something Wise. Something most Holy. My job is simply to prepare.Prepare and…

Tune into December’s Voice with your body

You don't have to strip your holidays down as radically as I do. To find what's right for you, tune into your body. If you'lre not excited about something, turn to your gut and see if you really want to do it or if it's more of an obligation.

The Speed of Love

Things are moving so very quickly aren’t they? Everyone is talking about how things are changing in their lives and changing at a speed they’ve never encountered before. It does seem that the time ofconsidering change,contemplating change,incrementally moving in a new direction–that time has ended. Although no one knows exactly why or when. It just seems to have…

Are you ready to hear the Love Song of your life?

This year is turning out to be full of mystical surprises, isn’t it. And with each surprise we find ourselves travelling roads in The Mystic we have not walked before. Roads most of us didn’t even know were there. That is certainly happening for me. And I love it, even though I don’t often understand…

The Beloved is Singing a Love Song to Your Body

There is a current of love-energy that flows between Earth below and Sun above. The central channel of your spine is the riverbed. The streaming is as delicate and powerful as the tingling touch of lovers.The Radiance Sutras Dear deep soul explorer, Our bodies respond to the movements of the planets and stars whether we…

When the Soul Starts Singing Love Songs

Last week, I told you the story of how love found me lying on the floor in savasana in yoga. (If you haven’t read it, January 14 sets the stage for today’s Part 2. I have a feeling this is the opening chapter of a love epic.) There is one paragraph in that Notes from the Field…

How are you going to come alive in 2018?

I drive two hours every Thursday to attend a devotional yoga practice that activates the divine feminine. Even I think it’s a crazy commitment, but Kali Natha Yoga is an essential element in my mystical life. Last Thursday, the beauty and wonder of this yoga opened me to a cosmic experience. I’d like to share…

My son went to prison–and I learned to pray

The mystical practices of soul writing and Intention Mandala were birthed in trauma. As I began Soul Vows, there was no trauma in sight. Would I finally get to write a book without pain?  Trauma, as you’ve probably discovered, can be a divine invitation. Not one you want, of course, but a divine invitation nonetheless. That’s…

Am I the Mikey of the mystical life? (Are you?)

Thomas Merton said, “It is not we who choose to awaken ourselves, but God who chooses to awaken us.” In that case, our only option is to say yes. I confess, I’m getting pretty good at this game of yes!   When Writing Down Your Soul came out, I didn’t see any particular pattern. I was grateful to have…

Meet the Owl

Welcome from Janet The owl on the cover of Writing Down Your Soul and My Soul Pages is not an accident. It is not an accident that it is an animal and an owl in particular. This owl is so much more than just an owl. This cover is a sweet divine mystery. Let me…
