State of Emergency

Happy Hurricane.
No, I'm not being sarcastic.
At the core of your being - brothers and sisters - please remain calm.
Facebook is brimming with lighthearted let's go to the liquor store to stock up and party tweets but I do believe that this situation is a tad more serious.

Tonight the local gas station - which was just stocked with fuel this morning - ran out.
New Yorkers who have left the city have landed here in the woods.
People are in a wide spread panic - especially in light of the earthquake that has people shaken to their core here in the east.

Your theories as to why "God is mad" or "The Earth is pissed" are probably all valid.  Just sayin.
But at the end of the day or the beginning of tomorrow shit is about to hit winds of one hundred plus miles an hour. Lights, camera, and action.  It's on.

Please prepare in a calm manner.
Take stock of water for cleaning yourself, drinking and a bit more in case strangers find their way to your doorstep.
Put any valuables in plastic bins.
Fill zip lock freezer bags 1/2 full w water and stick em in the freezer in case the power goes out you have more ice to give life to your food.
Have flashlight, candles and batteries on hand.
Stay away from windows. (says the girl who lives in a glass house!)
Have an emergency raft if need be. (air bed?)
You know the drill.

But of most importance should you find yourself in dire need of assistance and you must rely on your neighbor for help or vice versa - just breathe.
We are all one. We are all in this together.
Be kind. Be gentle and be the best you that you can possibly be.

To all my people in New York my door is open. If you must evacuate you will find hospitality here. I will do my best. Same for my philly freaks.  Much love to you. Stay safe. Stay on course.

This is only a test.
I repeat.
This is just a test.......

On the bright side, this will boost our economy in ways we weren't headed in. No?

Final thoughts:
God the Father, Goddess Mother we ask that you bless us with your divine protection.
Keep us safe in your favor as we embark upon stormy weather.
Let us be kind to each other and get through this in peace. Amen.

A Suicide Berceuse.

This is for you the broken hearted.This one is for you who can’t get out of bed and for you who may be finding it so damn hard to return the texts, emails and phone calls from anyone. 
This one is dedicated to those who having a hard time showing up because even thinking about showing up is too much energy. 
This one is for you who can’t seem to move on after the loss of a beloved. It’s for the ones whose days gone by are better than the days you’ve been wading through.This is for all of you who can’t catch a break financially, romantically or dream wise and wonder what it's all for.
The world has an immeasurable void in it. Constant pain inflicted from headlines or bylines is palpable. You’re unsure of your footing on our planet because the ground beneath you is unstable even when the sun shines otherwise. 
This one is for you who have contemplated at least once, perhaps even more than once about pressing the eject button on life. It’s here that you are in good company. It's…

4 Reasons Why Badmouthing Others is BAD For YOU.

I was talking today with a friend about the importance of words.  How you use them, positively, negatively any which way.  Words are like weapons.  Once you put them out there, they are pretty much impossible to take back.  Sure you can say you are sorry but it doesn't wipe the blood and guts off the floor from the initial bullet wound.  Forgiveness is key, but let's be mindful of our words from the get.  Dig?

Here's a repurposed blog to go along with those thoughts.

Everyone gets hurt. No one is perfect. People mess up. Mistakes are made. But the cross you bare when you badmouth someone else's questionable deeds or good fortunes, their life advances or personal tragedies is a very heavy one.

When you engage in loose lip service per say "warning" peers or anyone within earshot about someone or someone's "drama" or perhaps you seem to regurgitate the pain someone has caused you over and over to friends, strangers, clients, family members....wel…

The Sum of all Jitters

Monday, I leave my precious, beautiful and sacred bubble of Jim Thorpe for New York City to embark on my first week of Kundalini Yoga teacher training.  This learning adventure will stretch over the course of the next eight months. It's something that has been pulling at my heart for the last five years in terms of spiritual and physical evolution.

 And naturally with most new personal mega shifts or changes comes a tinge of fear. 
Yes, it's normal.  Don't use my words against me. But the 17 year old who lives somewhere inside of me sits up, batting her eyes so that I take notice.  She thanks me for honoring our future. She is excited for possibility and for helping others, always. But she bites her lip "even though we've come so far regarding our body image, even though we've done so much self love/self esteem work over the years, I'm still scared to wear white pants."

And I feel her..

It's not because I stain every white piece of clothing I o…
