Lucky Inner Connection

Connection with others is the 4th essential element in creating good luck in one’s life. It is the container that holds the other three elements of luck — confidence, vision, and action which were described in previous blogs.     The responses of those we care about, those we are connected to, can lift us […]

Creating Luck Through Positive Action

 Action is the third essential ingredient in the formula for manifesting good luck in one’s life.   The universe provides opportunity like a brass ring on a merry-go-round. We must reach out to claim the prize. We must buy the lottery ticket, make the phone call, book the hall, write the book, ask the question […]

Increasing Good Luck With Clarity of Vision

Good luck is attracted by clarity of vision. Confidence, as I explained in my last blog (see Invite Luck), is essential but not sufficient. Clarity, the details of our desires, is also needed if we are to get what we want. The truth is we manifest luck all of the time whether we are clear […]

Let Love Lead

In February, on Valentine’s Day, we celebrate love and relationship. Humans Need Relationships We are biologically wired to love and bond. This is one of the reasons why the loss of a loved-one can be so challenging. A significant bond is broken and its replacement is not so easily achieved. Connecting and bonding begin from […]

Finding Happiness in the Dark

Darkness is part of the seasonal cycle and also the cycle of life. There are good times and hard times. The secret of happiness is to learn to flow with the rhythm of these cycles. Often this is a lot easier said than done. Everything is going great and then suddenly BAM— your car breaks […]

Fears of Death Creates Fear of Life

We are biologically programed to fear death. All animals are. By fear I mean that automatic response of fight, flee or freeze when faced with a threat to survival. A shadow passes over and the lizard freezes. It passes again and the lizard scurries under a rock. If caught, the lizard will struggle and even […]

A Leap of Trust

This month’s illustration is inspired by a card I made for my sister who was born on February 29 — a Leap Year baby. Leap Year is an interesting name for a year that has one extra day. Specifically, it refers to the jump in the progression of calendar days that happens from year to […]

Embracing Love’s Challenges

The month of February bring us love and revolution. On Valentine’s Day, we pay special tribute to that human desire to bond and connect. The full moon in Aquarius, however, brings change and transformation. A significant relationship inevitably contains some of both. Loving another human is a journey with many challenges. It may start in […]

Discovering Your True Self

Inspiration for this month’s illustration came from a recent dream. In the dream a voice explains: Occasionally, sea turtle eggs find their way into eagles nests. When they hatch . . . The voice trails off as a baby sea turtle falls from the nest. The dream illustrates the ludicrousness of trying to live like […]

Cultivating Courage to Face Fear

Going after our dream is a little bit like a Halloween adventure. We don our costumes – a vision of ourselves — and set off to claim the promised rewards. Along the way we may encounter dark shadows and scary entryways. There may danger and unpleasant surprises. We are scrutinized and judged as we struggle […]
