Dirt Happy

Dirt Happy

When was the last time you were barefoot on the grass? Or the last time you dug in the dirt with a stick? Do you remember how good that felt? It turns out that the microbes in dirt, especially dirt under grass, had the same effect on our brains as anti-depressants. Mother Nature has builtContinue Reading

Inspiration from Ancient Art

Inspiration from Ancient Art

What inspires you? What helps you get up in the morning and attack the day? What keeps you going when all the odds are against you? Art and ancient culture is deeply inspirational for me. We had the good fortune of getting to see the Mogao Cave Temples exhibit at the Getty. I studied theContinue Reading

Earliest Memory of Magick

Earliest Memory of Magick

What is my first memory of feeling magick?  I remember grinding up colored chalk into powders when I was young. I would save them in jars, then scatter them outside in protection or blessing. It was my fairy dust, my benediction. I would gather stones, smooth and colored rocks from various places. Then, when theContinue Reading

Thirst

I’ll admit that I’m starting out pretty basic here. Big topics reduced down to a few hundred words. And today is no exception! Because today I’m going to talk about water. More specifically, hydration. Do you think you drink enough water throughout the day? Many studies and people will tell you various details on whyContinue Reading

Today I’m going to talk about one of the best tools I have for dealing with stress. It’s not diet, exercise, or drugs. It’s gratitude. There’s been some fairly immense stresses in my life this past year. There is pressure from many sources, not the least of which is myself pushing to succeed. There areContinue Reading

Earliest Power Memory

Earliest Power Memory

Ocean spreads blue and wide, away from the white sandy beach. The white birds dip and skim along the water. Waves lap easily along the shore. People are dotted along the beach – either playing in the water, laying out in the sun, or searching for seashells. We gather sand dollars from the edge ofContinue Reading

Movement

Hi everyone! Today I want to talk to you about the importance of movement. It seems like a pretty simple topic, but it’s hugely important! I see many of my friends and fellow healers performing great acts of spiritual and mental discipline. However, so many of them don’t move! Energy flows though the body. IfContinue Reading

We’re having a bit of a heat wave here in Los Angeles. Normally the temperature is nice, even and warm, but the last few days have brought heat advisories and warnings. Temperatures are close to 100 degrees and the humidity is much higher than usual for our desert city. I bring this up because IContinue Reading
