    Surprise Gifts from the Universe + A Freebie from Me

    I have decided to engage a little experiment with the Universe this month.  I am asking it to open up the field of possibility and shower me with gifts, and I am expecting that, just as I might know with strong certainty that a light switch will give me light, the Universe will open up to what I need and desire.

I set up my blog post so that I could easily just slip this portion in at the end of the day, sharing what…

    Spirit of Giving with Lucid Waking Radio

    I had a great time sharing my story about the Spirit of Giving last night with Rev. Shar of Lucid Waking Radio.  A few months ago I had an epiphany about what giving meant to me.  I would love to share it with you in more detail. WHY?  Because giving in this way has brought me more joy than I have felt my entire life….ever.  And if my experience and what I have learned could bring some higher level of joy to you, that would be an even bigger gift. Speaking of gifts, I make a special offer on the call that I would love to share with you.  By…
