One of my favorite stories from Africa was about a water well and a crazy series of events that I couldn’t have made up if I tried! Once I became a member of staff for my volunteer organization, one of my many responsibilities was to oversee and dictate chores for…

17 Ways to Get Grounded

By | Intuitive Living | No Comments

We all have a higher mind, our consciousness, where our intuition sits. But we can’t see it, or grab it, because it exists, for the most part, outside of this physical reality. In my journey, I’ve been researching how to develop and utilize my higher mind, and I’ve learned some…

Wasini Island, Kenya

By | Kenya 2011 | No Comments

Living on an island off the coast of Kenya had me feeling a bit like Robinson Crusoe. I’m lying in bed, every muscle aching from the day’s work, but sleep eludes me. Flashes of bright light followed by a whip-crack of thunder keep me awake. The torrential downpour and strong…
