Tying Up Loose Ends and Allowing Expansive Possibilities

In October 2021, I was feeling curious about what the near future would hold for me. I sat down with my journal for a co-created conversation with my spirit guide Holly. Here were her words of wisdom: Holly: Your blog post, Allow and Let it Go, is a good prescription for these next three months.Continue reading “Tying Up Loose Ends and Allowing Expansive Possibilities”

She is an Only Child by Choice

Toward the middle of December, I started looking at my new World Wildlife Fund calendar, and I put a notation for my daughter’s birthday in mid-January. It is an obviously impactful day, and comes just six days before my own birthday. I sat down to journal with my spirit guide Holly, and the birth ofContinue reading “She is an Only Child by Choice”

Seasons of Our Lives

As I mentioned in a post last month, my spirit guide Holly was continuing to send me metaphors through songs. At the end of that post, I mentioned that she went from Take it Easy to Seasons of Our Lives. She was particularly focused on these words: “Autumn leaves will fall, spring won’t save usContinue reading “Seasons of Our Lives”

If Not Now, When?: A Message From Holly and the Collective Wisdom

A few weeks ago, I was remembering what it felt like to be in my late teens and early 20’s during the marches against the military draft and the war in Vietnam. I remembered the songs of the time that supported and encouraged protest. There were definitely differing opinions globally about America’s role in theContinue reading “If Not Now, When?: A Message From Holly and the Collective Wisdom”

Take it Easy…Don’t Let the Sound of Your Own Wheels Drive You Crazy

My spirit guide Holly was back at it with songs. This time it was The Eagles’ song (written by Glenn Fry and Jackson Browne) Take it Easy. The words rang through my head: “Take it easy, take it easy. Don’t let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy.” It all started as IContinue reading “Take it Easy…Don’t Let the Sound of Your Own Wheels Drive You Crazy”

Angels Along the Road, Part I: Reginald Fitch

It seems most appropriate that my spirit guide Holly and I tell this story as we approach Thanksgiving. Junior high school can be a tough time for many kids. For me it was particularly difficult because for the first time in my short life, I was told that I was physically outside the norm, andContinue reading “Angels Along the Road, Part I: Reginald Fitch”

Holly and the Collective Wisdom: Their Guidance Expands My Awareness

Two years ago, on Day 76 of my 365 days of journaling with my spirit guide Holly, I wrote about a young client who I suspected had auditory processing issues. Holly gave me this suggestion: Holly: Listen to him read to see if there is a big discrepancy between his excellent reading comprehension and hisContinue reading “Holly and the Collective Wisdom: Their Guidance Expands My Awareness”

Self-Care Giving for the Sensitive Soul

There have been times in my life when I have read or heard something that touched me at the soul level and led to a profound opportunity for personal change. I wrote about one of those opportunities related to the detailed accounting of our finances (Be Self-Aware: Your Greatest Asset Might Also Be Your Greatest Detriment).Continue reading “Self-Care Giving for the Sensitive Soul”

Spiritual Bypassing? – The Bus Stop Metaphor

Six months ago, my spiritual sensibilites were triggered when I watched a video about a spiritual bus stop. There are many aspects of the video that could be helpful to those struggling with a “why me” mindset, but the bus stop metaphor itself didn’t seem useful. It seemed more like “spiritual bypassing.” The metaphor saysContinue reading “Spiritual Bypassing? – The Bus Stop Metaphor”
