Enlighten: Uplift & Inspire

In honor of Indigenous People Day, I share a synchronistic story that unfolded for me this past week. From the invitation of a wonderful shaman, Reda Rackley, I looked up the Native People of the land where I live. How wonderful to know the name Lenni Lenape, the peace-keeping “ancient ones”, the diplomats and mediators, who lived throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey and southern New York. I highly recommend photographer, Lisa Levart’s stunning exhibit at Bergen Community College, called “Women of the Ramapough Lenape Nation”. I am deeply moved by what Lisa created: a visual,...

This week’s episode is a simple prayer to bless the earth. I share a free form meditation that I say when walking in nature, that focuses on my gratitude for the beauty and wonder of the land, waters and sky.

Many listeners commented on how grateful they were for of serendipities and synchronicities.

Enlighten: Uplift & Inspire

Today’s focus is on the profound power of serendipity and synchronicity. I’ve noticed that the more I tune in, acknowledge the presence of forces bigger than me, open my heart to everyday mini miracles, welcome in my angels and spirit guides for support, comfort, direction and guidance, the more they seem delighted to make magic happen. And the fun part of this is that the serendipity and synchronicity occurs in ways I wouldn’t have expected and from people I didn’t know could be a conduit of light. My recent experience while my Dad was in the hospital was packed with serendipity and...

Episode 175 Called To Dance show art Episode 175 Called To Dance

Enlighten: Uplift & Inspire

Hafiz's poem reminds me that we are called to dance. I’ve used this beautiful poem as oxygen, especially when I was feeling the darkness and uncertainty of life creep back in. I hear so many people bracing themselves that things are going to be getting worse, before they get better. I don’t want to get sucked into the darkness of hopelessness. This poem pulls me away from the despair, shifts my mood, brings me back to a deeper truth, a radiant light that I know lies within us. May we heed the call to dance, see life itself as a beautifully choreographed dance. We were created for joy, to...

In this week’s episode I share my recent surprise and delight in being immersed in a Summer Rain. Have you yet enjoyed being in and present to a summer rain? I highly recommend it!

My recent experience while my Dad was in the hospital was packed with serendipity and synchronicity that felt orchestrated from the heavens. I felt the sweet presence of angels all around us, particularly in the dark moments! May you open your thoughts and heart to make room for serendipity and synchronicity to tickle, touch and surround you with joy. May you dare to call in your angels. I know they are waiting for your invitation. May your angels sprinkle the magic of serendipity and synchronicity into your life.
