So you’ve been thinking about increasing your consumption of plant foods and perhaps even are considering becoming a vegetarian or a vegan but you feel like the process will be too hard. Or maybe you’re just not used to eating lots of vegetables and fruit and just want to learn how to incorporate them into your daily diet.
While most of us can agree that the majority of people out there are not ready or willing to embrace a plant-based diet, most of us do agree that increasing…Continue

Not so long ago, I needed to learn how to breathe. What?!? What self-respecting person doesn’t know how to breathe? Well, I have learned that there is breath and there is breathing. Think of all the ways in which we can breathe – rapid, panting, sighing, gasping – and slow, conscious inhalations and…Continue

Relationships are our greatest assignments. It is where we do the spiritual work on ourselves. When relationships are good they ignite a sense of joy, well being, and belonging in us. However, bad relationships can lead to depression, addiction, and physical illness. Sometimes the growth that needs to be done in a relationship isn’t by us but rather by the other person. In these instances we are the teachers for our loved one. I think a way to understand who is doing the greatest learning…Continue

What is your definition?
I think it is very personal. Each person will have their own spin on it.
Why am I asking this question? I have come to the conclusion that I have not been honoring myself spiritually. What do I…Continue

When I was in High School, one of my teachers said to our class, "There is a big difference in maturity between, 'it dropped,' and, 'I dropped it.'" This statement changed the way I looked at language and its effect on us. From that day forward I have made a point to own my "mistakes"…Continue

A few years back, I moved in with my then boyfriend (now husband). He owned. I rented. So it made sense to move into his place. The master plan was that we would eventually marry and sell the apartment. We planned to use the equity from his place to buy a home that we both liked and wanted. It sounded like a good plan so we went ahead with it. However, nothing is perfect. The biggest problem was that his/our apartment was far from where I used to live and much further from my where I grew up…Continue

From the desk of the Editor,Founder and President of csaccac:
Yesterday was the first day of Spring,___and I was reminded of several great American traditions while performing a few task late in the afternoon.

Truthfully, the book had been sitting in the middle of my bed for weeks. For reasons that only I could articulate or at least enumerate,I hadnt…

Many spiritual teachers and celebrities, such as Gabby Bernstein and Doreen Virtue, often promote abstaining from coffee. So this begs the question, “what does coffee have to do with spirituality?”
For many, the concerns over coffee are really concerns over caffeine consumption. Caffeine belongs to a family of drugs called Methylxanthines. Methylxanthines are commonly found in coffee, tea, and chocolate. In North America, on average, a person consumes at least 200 mg of caffeine per…Continue

Mr. Know It All
I suppose I should rewrite that as MRS. Know It All since I'm female, but you get the point....
Can't tell me anything. I got this. I'm right. I'll do it myself. My way is better.
Truth be told it gets exhausting. Especially being right all the time. It's interesting that folks with low self esteem fall in to this category, too. Wouldn't expect that, would you? The motivating factor is different,…Continue

Why Ask Why?
Do I need to know WHY something happened?
Do I need to know WHY I feel this way?
Do I need to know WHY you did what you did?
I’ve heard that those of us who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. I get that. This isn’t about turning a blind eye, though. It’s about identifying how I feel.
To me, spending time in the why is distracting me from my now. Keeps me in the past,…Continue

Don’t Let Go
Hang on! Don’t let go!
Fear of falling is a basic fear we come into the world with, and it apparently sticks with us throughout life. And so we hang on for dear life, don’t we? Even when it’s time to let go.
Not everything needs to be held on to so tightly. What are we afraid will happen if we let go?
Aaaah…that’s an interesting question…
Sometimes it’s about fear and sometimes fear has…Continue

“I would rather be alone than be with people who make me feel lonely.” ~Robin Williams
I see and hear people every day who are seeking their soul mate. Social media, online dating…we’re trying to find that person who can fill our emptiness. We’re diligently searching to find The One. Valentine’s Day doesn’t help…
You can relax. Call off the search. They don’t exist.
“You’re wrong! …Continue

Make My Day
Don’cha love Dirty Harry movies? Who can forget Eastwood’s grimace as he snarls at the bad guy, saying, “go ahead, punk….make my day.”
Who or what “makes YOUR day?”

Accepting chronic fatigue and low energy levels does not have to be your reality. I have had weeks where I couldn’t lift myself off of the couch, quite literally. I grew up with chronic disease of which the main symptom, after pain, was fatigue. I have lived with rheumatoid arthritis for over a decade but no longer…Continue
Lots of folks need that caffeine jolt to even open their eyes. This isn’t a coffee bash; I LOVE coffee! And don’t get me started on coffee ice cream…one of the seven wonders of the world, in this girl’s opinion.
This is about designing your day. Setting your intention.…Continue
