MA-losophy in Paris: Museums of chocolate and masterpieces

I will have a dozen or so blogs about my trip to France in the Summer of 2013.  Expect the MA-losophy style while also getting tips that you may be able to use when traveling with family in Europe (in my case with 11 people total) and my ability to maintain my sanity (most of […]

MA-losophy in Paris: Conscious Connections to Differences

I will have a dozen or so blogs about my trip to France in the Summer of 2013.  Expect the MA-losophy style while also getting tips that you may be able to use when traveling with family in Europe (in my case with 11 people total) and my ability to maintain my sanity (most of […]

MA-losophy: Imperfectly finding a new normal

The academic semester ended and grades were assigned; my oldest completed her undergraduate degree; my son made it through another semester in his undergraduate program; my vegetable and ornamental gardens were planted; my business commitments were manageable and comfortable; I was weeks away from a family vacation so no rushing.  So, I observed myself.  Well, […]

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. If my kids have a stomach ache, are bloated, have cramps, or are a bit out of sorts as a result of stress or other ailments […]

Snuggling In and Thriving

I’d gotten home from being out of town for a few days – a teaching engagement on self-hypnosis – and my youngest said, “Mom, I hate it when you leave.”  My 18 year old, edgy, independent, college boy added, “Yeah. I hate when I get up and you’re not here.” This actually made me laugh, […]

What’s my purpose?

A movement is swirling that says the world is coming to an end; as soon as this year, maybe 2012, but many are set in this apocalyptic stone.  These thoughts have put people in a state of panic, and worse a state of depression saying, “What’s the point?  Why am I doing anything at all […]

If the Water Runs Dry

I’m looking at some new writing styles, and considering this format for my next book in the “Mainstream Metaphysical Mom” series (you can see my first two books in the series at http://www.michellepayton.com/Michelle-Payton-Books.htm).  This is one of my childhood stories.  Let me know what you think.  I will be teaching a class on “bibliotherapy”/journal processing […]

It’s Draining Breaking the Enabler Chain

My husband, youngest and I went out of town for one night. Our son (18 in five months) stayed home. I received a call at 10:30pm (the night we are out of town) from a neighbor that said there were numerous cars in our driveway (note that he was forewarned that guests were out of […]

Nosey Neighbors can be Pillars to our Communities

I was walking in my neighborhood with one of my neighbors and she said, “I don’t want to be judgmental, but I’ve seen a couple of teenagers in trucks driving through the neighborhood and…” Another neighbor drove by when I was planting flowers and stopped to say, “Do you want me to call about (blah […]

Is there Parent Enlightenment?

I received an angry comment from one of my videos at http://www.michellepayton.com/video-clips.htm titled “Are Today’s Kids Gifted? How to Educate our Children.” In a nutshell, this person was very bitter when it came to children and felt they are all misguided. As a mother of three dependent children at the moment while simultaneously seeking enlightenment […]
