The Best of 2014

Inspiration for a Flourishingly Healthy 2015

Medical Insights & News

The year 2014 is behind us, and so is Saturn in Scorpio, an astrologic transit (from October of 2012 to December 23, 2014), which had us turning over the deepest possible compost within ourselves in the areas ruled by Scorpio: sex, death, investments, taxes, and inheritances. Saturn is now in the sign of Sagittarius, which is—in its most exalted form—about the search for truth and freedom.

I’m willing to bet that any structures in your life that are preventing you from living your personal joy and truth will also undergo transformation in 2015. In my view, we’re here to live heaven on earth. But we can’t do that if we’re hanging on to outmoded beliefs and behaviors that don’t support our Divinity fully. What Scorpionic area went through transformation in YOUR life? To move forward, you truly need to take in and appreciate how far you’ve come and what you’ve accomplished. So think back on 2014 and everything that transpired and what you came through.

In that spirit, please check out my most popular blogs in 2014. Think of it as reviewing the best of the last year! And then, moving forward into 2015, remember the words of Louise Hay: Changes that are forced into being are always temporary. But changes that are loved into being are permanent.

As you read the most popular blogs from 2014, glean the information and inspiration you need to lovingly change or update your beliefs so that 2015 can be your healthiest and most satisfying year to date.

Three Drugs I Would Not Take

Three Drugs I Would Not Take

In Western Medicine, drugs are created to treat symptoms as opposed to the root cause of the condition. If you only suppress your symptoms, instead of also addressing the cause, your body will often protest by developing so-called “side effects” to medication or even by developing another dis-ease. This is how our bodies talk to us. But, there is nothing “side” about these effects — they are the direct result of the drugs. Continue reading…


Iodine and our Children’s Health

Did you know that iodine deficiency is one of the leading causes of cognitive delay in children? And despite the concerted effort by organizations like the World Health Organization (WHO) and The International Council for the Control of Iodine Deficiency Disorders (ICCIDD) iodine deficiency is on the rise, especially in women of childbearing age.

When Relationships No Longer Work

The primary relationship that needs updating at midlife is the one you have with yourself. All other interpersonal crises that arise at this time are simply reflections of this. Your new self is no longer willing to accept less than you deserve. Relationship troubles are not due to the crazy-making effects of their hormonal shifts. And midlife gives us new wisdom and the courage to voice it. Continue reading…

Listen to Your Inner Guidance

Self-Sacrifice Your Time is OVER!

Astrologically, we have moved through the eclipse tunnel and the Grand Cardinal Cross of this past spring. These astrologic aspects have transformed our lives on many levels, most especially all of our partnerships. Let me give you the Cliffs Notes on these transits: They have been in the service of our individual and collective evolution. In summary: Grow or die. Kind of like the menopausal transition, but on a global scale. Continue reading…


Goddesses Never Age: Worsening Eyesight Isn’t Inevitable

When did you start requiring glasses to read a menu, a book, or a computer screen? Or was your problem the opposite—the inability to read the blackboard at school? I was about 12 when I first noticed that I couldn’t read what the teacher wrote on the board in the classroom. This occurred within a year of getting my period. Looking back, I now see that I had a lot of unexpressed anger at the time. Continue reading…

    I am a Mom of a beautiful young tween that started her period. She knew it was coming but when she did finally start, she wished that she was a boy instead of a girl. I have enjoyed reading your books. Wish you would write a book for girls in this age group.
