MA-losophy: Goin’ on a Poop Walk

Working with clients in the mind over matter field, overall health is one of the keys to increasing willpower to overcome any dis-ease. My message today? Poop is important.

Your Reflection may be My Reflection: How Ho ‘oponopono can get Perceptions to Zero if Unproductive

Having a family breakfast one Saturday morning my niece confessed, “I really didn’t like you, Aunt Michelle.

Regardless of audience, an idea floats into my consciousness during a walk; while I’m in the shower; taking a quiet tea time; while I’m driving (where this blog topic was born). Right brainchildren find themselves on tattered, torn, tea or water-stained pieces […]

My 21-year-old niece moved in with my family to get acclimated to Asheville and within one week decided she was going to do a detox; cut out caffeine; stop smoking and drinking alcohol (a trigger to her smoking).  And she started her moon cycle that same week.  What was my household in for?

A few days ago I found myself in a mind fog and found it difficult to get out of bed.  My thoughts snapped to “Crap! Am I coming down with something again?” A 70-year-old business associate and friend called me a day or so later (and I paraphrase), “I have never been this bad.  I […]
