I didn’t disappear on spring break … I took a little hiatus to work on my new show.
The podcast launches April 1, 2017 with a month’s worth of episodes!
I’ve been recording interviews, personal stories, and channeled messages for weekly shows.
Here’s a sneak peak of Episode 02 – The Magic Mother Mary Prayer Bowl
I hope you enjoy it.
Stay tuned for more…

Let it go.
Surrender this whole … grasping thing.
You’re spending way too much energy on what’s missing…
But, hold on — let’s make sure you spin this right:
It’s not “give up” because “that ship has sailed.”
This is about tapping into the phenomenon where the things you’re looking for usually show up the minute you stop striving so hard to find them.
Now, you can’t cheat this magic.
You can’t “pretend” not to look, yet really be looking…
Surrendering this constant “love hunt” is about redirecting your energy to the person you’ve always wanted to become.
That version of yourself is the same person as who you want to be when you meet the love of your life.
So trust that you can let it go.
You’re not going to “miss” anything that’s meant for you.
It’ll happen when it happens, and you can either waste energy on it or effortlessly allow it to find you.
Let it find you busy making other amazing things happen in the world.

You start by taking stock of what you still actually do have.
The ego is a great exaggerator, as well as a pathological liar.
Despair tends to communicate with tons of emotion, but with few facts and little accuracy.
Everything, nothing, always, never — these words are hysterically overused and rarely appropriate. When you hear them being whispered within you, alarms should go off — you are not listening to your spirit guides, your better angels, or your higher self.
These are angry, wounded words. Remove them from your vocabulary.
Here’s Where You Start:
Gratitude journaling. (Oprah)
Morning pages. (The Artist’s Way)
Sounds awfully simple — real cures usually are.
I have a personalized version you could check out called The Book of Faded Green.
List what you love.
What do you see in this moment that is good, no matter how small or how seemingly insignificant. What doesn’t suck?
Write 3 pages every morning.
It can be in a list form. You can do it in your head while driving or riding the train. The format doesn’t matter — but the thinking works miracles.
A little bit at a time — one word, one image, one right after the other, every day.
Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.
Leave yourself a trail of breadcrumbs, lead your spirit back out of the darkness, Lantern Bearer. Weave a rope, build a ladder. Rescue yourself with simple observations of gratitude.
Do this until you feel differently. You will. I can’t promise you an exact time frame. But I can promise you will.

When the tide is out, stop swimming.
The same actions that propel you when you’re in the flow can dig a hole on dry land.
Seasons and cycles determine environment and context.
Actions require context to be effective.
Timing can be everything — and time is outside your control.
If you’re not sure what to do right now, then maybe now is not the right time.
