“It strikes me as ironic that the coronavirus was given the name COVID-19 by the World Health Organization. Strangely, COVID bears the same consonants as Cavod or Kavod, the ancient Hebrew word for glory, honor, or divine Presence.”  Rabbi Tirzah Firestone Fellow Pilgrims, And yes, I do believe we are all pilgrims now. In the past,…

Note: (From Notes in the Field, published 4/12/2020) I think it’s not an accident that today is Easter, commemorating a sacred transformation of love from death to life. At the same time Passover is ending, honoring an incredibly difficult pilgrimage of an enslaved people walking in faith and trust toward freedom. And Ramadan is coming,…

Greeting precious friends, Time is moving in such a strange paradoxical way. If we consider the outrageous flow of information, especially misinformation, and the constant breaking news, and the tsunami waves of panic and fear, then time appears to be moving at a whole new speed. And it doesn’t feel like the speed of love.…

Greetings precious friends from my home to yours, Everything has changed, hasn’t it? In a blink. How many days has it been since your world was completely upended?

On December 5, 2016, I was ushered into a room in dimensional time—a room neither Lauralyn Bunn (the brilliant Akashic Record consultant) nor I had ever been in before. The room was lit only by the flicker of tall candelabras. In the hush, I was ushered forward to a chair surrounded by masters and teachers—beings…

Mystical awareness comes in pieces. In the moment, you might think you understand what is happening, but in truth, you don’t. It may take years for an experience to unfold sufficiently for you to see the depth and breadth of what happened then, and is happening still. That’s why I track important dates. Year after…

Today is such a fun day. It’s the numerology joke of the century. Actually, several centuries. Today is a palindrome. When you say “February second” you might miss the fun, but when you look at the date written out like a credit card expiration: 02-02-2020, you can’t miss it! Today’s date reads the same backward…

This has been, and continues to be, an astonishing Solstice, Eclipse, new year/new decade moment. And it’s all culminating today in a conjunct of Pluto and Saturn that hasn’t happened in 500 years. What!? Five hundred years ago we were birthing the Renaissance. So now it looks like Pluto—the underworld, the unknown, the unseen, and…

If you’ve read my books, you’ve probably noticed that my understanding of and relationship to asking has changed. Dramatically. ASKING A decade ago, I believed what all the books and teachers on the so-called law of attraction taught: get clear about what you want, focus on it, smell it, taste it, see it, and it…

“Consent draws down grace.” I am proof that it does, because with my one-word consent, the intensive itself comes to life. It starts to take over, and it leads me where I need to go. And lately, I have to run to keep up.

I drive two hours every Thursday to attend a devotional yoga practice that activates the divine feminine.

I’d like to share…

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…

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…
