I love me a good “rags to riches” story-especially when feeling the most raggedy!

I have to admit I notice a resistance to getting back to life after a week spent honoring the passing of not one, but two beloved people in my world. It’s as if, on some level, I erroneously feel I’m betraying the memory of Teresa Swanson Sielck and Glenna D Walden by diving back into life. But, I imagine, if they were alive they would say that they’d want me (and those of us whose lives have been tossed around because of their loss) to get back to life…that being fully engaged in life, while we’re alive, is what would honor them. I can’t imagine either of these amazing ladies/angels wanting me or any of us to dive into a cave of deep depression and […]

Hungry for a Persephone Burger? Mmm Yum!

I don’t get mad that often…but when I do…it’s not cute. I was furious—bordering on out of control Tasmanian Devil from the Bugs Bunny cartoons kind of furious (on the inside)—right before Christmas. I’d fallen prey to a family dynamic that I swore I’d mastered and become immune to—but, as it turns out, I hadn’t and I wasn’t (yet). As I was tossing and turning, grumbling, and cussing like a sailor in the middle of the night, I (thank God) had the sense to get out of bed, grab my journal, and turn to the work of Byron Katie. If you’re not familiar with her “Work” then this next part may at first blush seem strange…but you’ll figure it out. […]

Discover the drop-to-your-knees brilliance

I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that IT’S HALLOWEEN! The day/night when the veil between worlds is thinnest!For those of us Dream Questers, we are “thin wall” people anyway…but tonight…we take it to a whole other level of transparency!In the Toltec dreaming path, the word for shaman is “Nagual”, which is pronounced “No Wall.” Hmmmm…coincidence? I think not. And did you know that many indigenous groups consider the shaman “one who dreams”-with that in mind, I dub you a candidate! Seriously, when you remember a dream-it’s as if you are retrieving clues, data, important information, soul-edifying wisdom from another realm, and bridging it to this world (our collective waking dream). And, when you can learn to interpret […]

8 things I know for sure about dreams

After hearing thousands of dreams from thousands of people, here’s 8 things I know 4 sure about dreams… As you probably know, I’ve been a dream enthusiast, ambassador, cheerleader (geek) for my entire life, and professionally for over 20 years. I’ve had the privilege of hearing, literally, thousands of dreams from thousands of people. You could say I love and have a passion for dreams. And, as I’m sure you know, and have experienced in your life, if you love someone, listen and pay attention to them, over time they develop trust in you…and when they feel safe, they reveal themselves to you. It’s like that with me and dreams. Because I’ve spent decades in their service, I’ve been privy […]

Sharing this dream

Can’t believe I’m sharing this dream out loud, BUTT here goes (pun intended) Spoiler Alert: It has a little something to do with my derriere. There’s a part of me-the conservative, blushes easily part-that can’t believe I’m sharing this dream out loud, in public. I’m sharing because I was told by several teary-eyed people that this dream, and the subsequent poem I wrote about it in an attempt to heal my disease to please, could be helpful to others. Might this be you? If it’s not you, then please forward this to the recovering people pleasers in your life. In this video (, I share about one of my personal nightmares and how I was called to practice what I […]
