When Do We Lose Sight Of Our Authentic Selves?

This past week I’ve been fortunate to have six of my grandchildren — ages 1 to 7 — with us. In addition to the days being filled with fun and love, I am inspired and amazed by their ability to truly know themselves. They know who they are, what they want, what they need, and what they feel. They are great at expressing emotions. When do we lose this ability to know ourselves??? Knowing who we are, what we want, what we need and what we feel — with the ability to express it all clearly. What happens between childhood and adulthood to cause you, most often, to lose your authentic Self? {Your authentic self [...]

Wake Up to Your Dreams in 2021!

Your 2021 Transformation to Positively Impact the World! We made it through 2020, a year full of unforeseen, uncertain, and unexperienced challenges. Now, how are you (and how am I) going to face the challenges in 2021? We hoped the new year would be easier, but so far it's difficult to see. Merriam-Webster defines transition as "a movement, development, or evolution from one form, stage, or style to another." There is not a clear map in any transition process. In personal and collective transformation, we can’t foresee the individual challenges and changes we will need to make. It’s not easy ̶ as a matter of fact, it’s HARD! If we want to see change in [...]

Pandemic Interlude

If I ever needed my dreams, I need them NOW! As I face the challenges regarding Health – Economics – Career – Environment – Politics – Relationships, my dreams bring balance each night. Well, sometimes they bring a wake-up call! I am incubating dreams for wisdom in how to live my life and make wise, intelligent decisions. It’s hard to know with so many messages bombarding us. I never even dreamed that we, individually and collectively, would be in the position we are in. I encourage you to bring your questions, decisions, and challenges to your dreams. You probably already know that your brain, during dreamtime, is your most creative problem-solver. You might want to [...]

Are You Waking Up To Your Dreams During Your Time Of Isolation?

During this pandemic our relationships, career, and health are being challenged. Due to our individual personalities, past experiences and current circumstances, we are acting and reacting to the current Covid-19 crisis in different ways. Thankfully, our dreams will give us a glimpse into our personal ways of coping with our emotions and life in general. I believe listening to your dreams is more important now than ever, and the skills and perspectives available through dreamwork are essential to both personal and collective health and evolution… I often wonder… If the COVID19 Pandemic miraculously ended now, what would I have learned? How will I live my life differently? This uncertain time is certainly an invitation to [...]

My Adventure At NYC Publicity Summit

The past week has changed my life. It was time to promote my new book Wake Up! Use Your Nighttime Dreams to Make Your Daytime Dreams Come True. I took a big risk and made a major investment to increase the audience for nighttime dreams. I travelled to NYC last Tuesday with much anxiety about how dreams would be received by the media that I was pitching. I know the incredible overlooked gift of dreams, but would they? Would they consider it sort of hocus pocus, especially the very mainstream media? Out of over 80 people I met from all aspects of media, I only ran into ONE person who was not interested. Some of [...]

Does Remembering My Dreams Interrupt Good Sleep?

Often people are concerned about the interruption of their sleep if they pay attention to their dreams. I find the opposite is true. From my personal experience and from reports of dream studies clients, I find that being aware of dreams, journaling dreams, and finding meaning in dreams actually leads to better sleep. Sometimes people have physical conditions that prevent a good quality of sleep and need medical attention, but often our sleep is interrupted by reviewing and worrying about situations that trouble us. We may be caught in the daily emotional impact of our waking lives. By paying attention, listening and trying to understand our emotions and our lives’ journeys, we are relieved of [...]
