Are You a Healer?

Over the last month, I have had 6 different ladies arrive on my doorstep. I did not go in search of them. They showed up for seemingly different reasons. Some of the women were strangers stopping to chat for a moment and stayed for hours. Others were here for a business meeting and left with a new lease on life. One thing they had in common...they were all healers and I knew it within moments. I am Lady X. I AM a healer, but that is not my main purpose. One of my great purposes in life, which I've accepted as a wonderful gift, is to guide other healers. ...more
Hi Lady x.... I'm really not sure what has drawn me to obsessively research healing lately. I ...more

Daydreaming Makes You Unhappy ... Even If You're Thinking About Ryan Reynolds

So here I am, reading this New York Times article, "When the Mind Wanders, Happiness Also Strays." The point is basically that some smart scientists have found that a) daydreaming doesn't make you happy and b) not even if you're daydreaming about something awesome while you're sitting in the dentist's chair, no, still not happy and c) yeah, your mind is actually wandering 47 percent of time. Hello? PAY ATTENTION. ...more

Are some people evil?

A client asked a question lately that is very relevant to most of us:I was wondering if people know when they are hurting others or manipulating them? I notice that some people feel justified and right about manipulating and taking advantage of others. Are they aware of what they are doing? Are people like that – or do they have no idea that they are doing crazy stuff?...more

The Birthday-less Years

Wow.  It’s been awhile.  I’ve been off trying to earn a living, parenting and figuring how not to get committed to an insane asylum before my hormones even out.  They do that, eventually, right?  Yesterday I kinda thought a nice stay in…wherever they put menopausal women without good health insurance…might be restful and, therefore welcome.  If the asylum has a jetted tub, it could even be, you know, preferable to where I’m staying now. But I digress.  What I really what to say is HAPPY BIRTHDAY.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY to all you older moms of youn...more

The Real Housewives and Their Poopy Yards

I am about to reveal a deep, dark secret.  Every week, twice a week, I DVR Bravo's so-called reality series The Real Housewives of Whatever City.  I've been tuning in for years and I just can't get enough.  What is it about those "housewives" I feel so drawn to watch.  I figure it is kind of like a car crash, you just can't look away.  The premise of the show is to see life where the "grass is greener".  You know what, as I watch each episode I surely don't see greener grass.  No their beautiful, well manicured grass is full of dog poop!&nbs...more
