During this time of year, we think about giving thanks. It is a great time to appreciate what we have in our lives: families, friends, pets, comforts, joys. Perhaps we make a toast at our Thanksgiving meal. It is a great reminder to put aside all that is not positive in our lives and to be grateful. 

Being grateful 365 days a year is a beneficial tool to cultivate contentment in our lives.  There are actually scientific studies to back this up. If you are one to experiment and take your own study to see if something is real or not, then put it into practice, that is great. If you need evidence, here it is:

“Feelings of gratitude activate the part of the brain that produces dopamine, a messenger molecule that stimulates your brain’s

This past week we honored and paused to remember the veterans of our country. They have made huge sacrifices for our freedom. Thank you for serving our country. We know your service was not easy on you or your family. So much trauma and memories that are very personal and will always be with you as part of your story. Know that we are here to help you recover to feel safe, whole and at ease.

Trauma is something a veteran may carry in their bodies. My colleague, Sarah Arikian, taught a

Learning to tap into your own inner wisdom is a lifelong journey but when the well springs open, you will find your purpose/calling. Follow your heart, it will not fail you. Life is full of trials and errors, try not to get discouraged when your path changes. Everything happens for a reason. It is through our daily struggles where we become stronger and resilient.

Before sitting down to write the column, I decided to clean our windows. Truthfully, because we will be sitting inside as the cooler weather arrives and you can’t help but see the accumulation of dirt.  There is nothing like sparkling clean windows. This simply task brought back memories of my dear Mom cleaning all thirteen windows in Brooklyn on our 2nd floor apartment, sitting on the ledge! She took pride in her beautiful home while raising seven children in a five-bedroom apartment. We

What do you think it means to have a new lease on life? 

Fresh start. Renewed vigor. Good health. Sometimes a restart is in order to get out of a funk or some heavy hard-to-process emotions and coming out of the long hibernation we all endured from 2020 to 2021. No matter how it hit each of us, we all have been affected in some way. Some have endured such loss and sickness; it is hard to fathom. Someone I know lives near a hospital and witnessed the lines of ambulances and other emergency

“Our ability to find something to love, and to love again for the first time, depends greatly on how we resolve and integrate where we’ve been before. A great model for us exists in the chambered nautilus, an exquisite shell creature that lives along the ocean floor.  The nautilus is a deep-sea form of life that inches like a soft man in a hard shell finding his prayers along the bottom. Over time it builds a spiral shell, but always lives in the newest chamber.

Just started getting into reading, watching interviews and offerings by Dr. Joe Dispenza. I had before but it didn’t resonate as much as it does now. And I realize I experienced one of his major illuminations over two years ago. Without realizing it, I put into practice one of his core teachings: clear intention + elevated emotions = a new energy.
