I remember promising myself when I was about ten years old and dealing with my father’s death that I would never lose that innocence, and wonder and joy for life.

The grieving process can be a powerful catalyst for our spiritual awakening. When we experience loss, such as the death of a loved one, we long for the connection we once had. We long for what was that isn’t anymore. In our longing, we are invited to surrender and let go of control of how we think life should have turned out. We are invited into a deeper relationship with the Divine as we let go and trust the great mystery of life.
Recently, I received news that my 97-year-old Grammie was on hospice and dying after a fall from her wheelchair.

One of the most common complaints that I hear from women about their male lovers is that they are just too genitally focused. It’s clear to me that many women want their men to make love more from the heart during sexual play. Many women use the term “sexual intimacy” to describe what they are looking for in sex.

Their craving for it is so deep that its absence insures her dissatisfaction at a deep, primal level.
Many of us today are called more than ever to be a Spiritual Messenger by using Spiritual principles in our everyday lives and work that embody the message of Spirit in the modeling of our life.
