How to Remain Centered Over the Holidays

Holidays, even in the best of circumstances, can be stressful due to family, work, school, and cultural expectations and responsibilities. A daily practice can pave the way to keeping you compassionately connected to your self, others and whatever Higher Power you understand or recognize. A daily practice can also reduce stress or anxiety and keep you focused on your journey to shift and transform even in the midst of stressful holiday encounters.

4 Intimate Love Connections: What Makes Love Strongest?

Why do some love relationships last for 40+ years while others fade quickly almost overnight or erode over a few years with blistering anger or resentment? I have had many people ask me over the years: “Why do many love relationships fail?” or “I feel so guilty about my marriage failing- especially when I think about the idea of ‘What God has brought together, let no man set asunder!

At this time, a shift takes place from the earth energy of winter (when we go within for introspection) to the airiness and Light of spring (a time of new creation and rebirth).
