A perfect time to pray…

Laura Story "Blessings"

Why doesn't sleep come when you feel you need it most? The past few weeks have been interesting. The middle of the night tossing and turning some nights could even count as a workout... and at other times wide awake in the silence of the night. At first I blamed it on the intense energy of the recent new moon and solar eclipse. Now almost two weeks later, I could blame it on the upcoming super … [Read more...]

Creating more of the life I desire…

Australia Shepherd & Tabby Cat

I've been looking at my life, and wanted to find ways to create more of what I desire, but also seeing what I already have that brings me the most joy and happiness and finding ways to help that expand more. So allow me to share with you... I spent hours drawing symbols and words, what I call my mini-coasters. I really connect with the energy of symbols.

Never doubt the power of prayer!!


What do you do in times of confusion... overwhelm... or despair? Do you give up? Do you scream out at just how unfair life is sometimes? Do you try and figure it out with your head, all on your own? Do you shrink away? Do you pray at times like this? A few days ago I was stuck in that place of despair, and certainly overwhelmed by many things in my life. I was feeling defeated. It was one of … [Read more...]

She knew that the serious part of me, was going along for the fun. Both my husband and … [Read more...]

Journeying with octopus medicine


I am taking an online class these days called Visual Quest, a Shamanic Painting eCourse with Pixie Lighthorse.

Grounding in nature

Grounding in nature

It's been a slightly stressful 30 hours or so. Mom called and asked me to rush her to the hospital last evening when something wasn't right. I hate those trips to a hospital when it feels that you can't quite drive fast enough and worry that something could happen on the way there. So I prayed... I prayed a lot so we would get there safely and so she would get the medical help she needed. … [Read more...]
