The Intersection of Politics and Spirituality

(Image: thebridgetofreedom.org)   By now, many of you will have heard of the Law of Attraction.  This spiritual principle teaches us that what we focus on – intentionally or unintentionally – is what we manifest.  The manifestation occurs more quickly when there is great emotion associated with the thoughts upon which we are focused. I’m guessing I may not have to tell you how powerfully this law could be affecting our political reality right now. In particular, I continue to be aware of the enormous emotions one particular man is stirring up in our country right now.  His supporters are…

Creating a Shining New Life

It’s time.  Time for big changes. I’ve been known for making some big changes in my life.  One of the first was when I moved across the continent from my lifelong home in southeastern Pennsylvania to Oakland, California to get my master’s degree.  I was the first in my family to get a master’s degree and the second of five children to move out of state.  It was all a very big deal for me.
