Life is full of ups and downs, highs and lows. I’ve always struggled because I feel both so intensely. On the one hand, it means I’m fully living in the moment, but on the other hand, it means I frequently felt off-centered, out of balance. And then, one day, I woke...
Trusting the Path

Trusting the Path

For several weeks, I’d been struggling with loneliness. I wanted to meet the right person and share my life with someone. That’s a very human need. On a logical level, I understand that, but there’s always been a part of me that’s felt like it’s just beyond my grasp....

On the Other Side of Heartbreak

On the Other Side of Heartbreak

We’ve all been there. That relationship you thought was going to last forever takes a nose dive and the next thing you know, you’re alone and heartbroken. Your cry and grieve. Maybe it gets a little ugly. You stop eating or getting dressed. Or maybe you push yourself...
My Quest to Meet My Guides

My Quest to Meet My Guides

I’ve always been a spiritual person. As a kid, I was raised in the Jewish faith, but my mother had more Christian beliefs. She taught me to pray and seek a personal relationship with G-d. I always felt there was more…more than synagogue and Hebrew school; more than...
