New Moon + Solar Eclipse + Magical Fire Ceremony = Big Love

I’ve learned that some days are more auspicious than others for attracting our heart’s desires. Fourteen years ago when I was actively manifesting my soulmate, Brian, I created a specific fire ceremony to release my “soulmate wish list” and I purposely did it on a Friday when there was also a New Moon.

Women Need Time To Get Their Sexy On

Women Need Time To Get Their Sexy On

If you are a woman you can relate to the fact then many men always seem “on.” They may work all day, come home exhausted, but if you mention sex, most of them are ready and raring to go. Women are not like this. We need time to make a transition into sexy.

Self Care for Summer

Can you believe that it is the middle of the year! Summer is upon us and it is hot, hot, hot! I remember the summers of my youth in North Carolina, with no air conditioning, with fans in the ceiling and window. Staying inside wasn’t an option so I spent many days outside on the porch or running up and down the street. Looking back on it, summer didn’t seem as hot then. We’d have ice water and sometimes lemonade to keep us cool. The living was easy!

Expanding Relationship Consciousness

Expanding Relationship Consciousness

     I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the basic philosophical difference between people who think in terms of “either/or” and those who think in terms of “both/and”.
