Osama Bin Laden Is Dead -- Should We Rejoice?

Osama Bin Laden is confirmed dead, and as news of his demise spread, videos and reports of worldwide cheer exploded across the media. Thousands of people flocked to the streets, carrying children on their shoulders and screaming victory over evil. I first heard of Bin Laden’s death last night, when one of my sons came downstairs and…See More

Death: Time To Start A New Chapter

As we saw in the last card of The Hanged Man, the Fool has come to a point of his journey in which he understands that some things just have to be accepted for what they are. Sacrificing some of his ways, and seeing the world from a different point of perspective, has allowed him the opportunity to notice aspects of his life in a different light, and he has come to understand that things aren’t always as they seem – indeed, changing one’s point of perspective can change his perception of…See More

Thank You!!!

The past week has been a whirlwind, but rather than feeling turned upside down, I feel absolutely invigorated. I have to believe that Universe knows when it is time for a shuffle, and when you leave yourself open for changes, wonderful things manifest.A couple of weeks ago, I decided to give something a try – after spending almost three decades doing Tarot readings for friends and family, I thought of spreading my wings to the outside world and I offered a few free sample readings on a handful…See More

The Hanged Man: A Different Perspective Can Change Your Perception Of Reality

So far, the Fool has gone through an amazing journey, and he has learned a lot. Yet, no matter how much he has absorbed, he is aware of the fact that things aren’t always as they seem – he has seen the world in daylight, and he has seen it wrapped in the shadows of the night, but he has never seen it upside-down. When he encountered t...he Wheel of Fortune, he discovered that some events are completely outside the realm of human control, and even if some things can later be affected by our…See More

Strength: Is Your Inner Lion Working In Your Favor?

In the previous step of his journey, the Fool understood that some things which unfold in our lives are out of our control. Our choice, at this point, is how to respond to them – since a natural instinct of survival is likely to be triggered, we are probably going to experience a rush of untamed energy in connection to being exposed to an event we weren’t expecting; may it be in the form of anger or lust, our animal instinct surfaces to ensure our safety and survival. In the card of Strength,…See More

The Wheel Of Fortune: What Goes Up Must Come Down, And What Is Down Will Go Up

After spending time to learn the mysteries of the night, and the messages of the shadow self during his Hermit phase, the Fool is now ready to step back into the conflicting energies of the world, and to approach challenges with a deeper understanding of how everything works. On his journey back to the outside world, he realizes that not all happenings are controlled by human choice – some things are simply brought on by fate. The Wheel of fortune represents the proverbial strike of good or bad…See More

The Hermit: The Fool Navigates The Pathways Within

After focusing so much energy in learning and conquering all that can be readily seen, the Fool realizes there are parts of himself and of this world he does not know – is there something new and undiscovered in the shadows of the night?So he takes it upon himself to find out: Armed with only a cane and a lantern, the Fool goes off on a nocturnal journey, and as he encounters animals, insects and plants that only come out or bloom at night, he understands how much he has missed so far.

Great to see you all again!

Hello friends,

First of all, let me apologize for the long time I have disappeared out of sight. I think I got a little burned out and needed some time to regroup.

The last year I have done just that. I have focused on my family, I have learned all I could about the publishing business, and I have written another novel which I have decided to publish on my own this time, under my new incarnation as publisher of Crossroads Books.

I have other projects I am nursing at the…

Please "Like" This Page...

Good morning, friends!

I have a little favor to ask...if you can, and if you are on Facebook, could you please "like" the new page for my novel? Facebook is archiving old pages that are not used much, so we created a new one, but it needs at least 25 "likes" to exist and earn a proper name. http://on.fb.me/jLjS1c

Thank you so much! Blessings,

History Repeats Itself: The Muslim Witch-hunt

Of the four billion people who died in the 20th century from all causes combined, 185,000,000 deaths were caused by other humans. At 8.5 millions, murders exceed deaths related to natural disaster (including floods, earthquakes and volcanoes) by five millions. These are scary odds. They get even scarier when one thinks that many of the 'manmade' deaths are the product of hate crimes.

Sadly, since the September 11, 2001 incident, and again since the killing of Osama Bin Laden,…

A Mother's Day reflection: What My Mother Taught Me Is More Valuable Than Recycling

One of the mantras my mother routinely used any time I asked her for suggestions to solve certain problems in my young life was: “Assess the resources you have and create a plan.” Of course, at the time I was stuck with an issue, I didn’t think I had any resources, so I distinctly remember spending a lot of time wondering what she truly meant; as I got older I realized those words were a gift I would use many times over, and I was proud to use many of my mother’s teachings in my book…

That something that is WRONG with you is really what is RIGHT!

When you have a problem, there is not something wrong with you. When you cant orgasm how you expect to...When you gain a little weight...When you forget something important...When you are scatterbrained...When you snap at someone...When you burst into tears...When you stub your toe...Yes, you are having a problem.

Ready to Tame Your Inner Critic?

We often focus on nourishing our bodies, with fitness and nutritious food, and forget that to function at our optimal level and experience overall well-being, it is equally important to nourish our minds.Years ago I wasn’t doing either, and eventually I got stuck, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Physically, I had low energy; mentally, I was not growing; and emotionally, I was bored, resentful, and lost passion for life.Life became a monotonous routine. I got lost in playing “safe” and…See More

We need more woman up in here.

We need womanness in our daily lives-- as women. We all need that nurturing. Not only as women, but as humanity as a whole. This "feminine", needs to counterbalance the masculine.I will use words from the Feminine Power Course to describe principles of the feminine. Words like emotion, integrity, nurturing, relatedness, flow,…See More
