It isn’t even that some of us have an uncanny niggling that time is neither our friend nor foe. Or that somewhere, in an untapped part of our soul lies obscure memories imprinted from another lifetime of ancient civilizations like the Amorite dynasties of Babylon, circa 1894 BC; or the Aegean Neolithic farmers of the Bronze Age. Purpose will always outweigh time and your soul will always possess…


Is the echo of their soul.

Just as I sit down to write this message for you, Never Tear Us Apart by INXS starts drifting through my opened office window. The neighbours are using their outdoor sound system. At least they have the fortitude to play decent music.

Kirk Pengilly owns the saxophone that carries along the summer breeze. I begin to smile but it hardly forms as the music transports me elsewhere. Now, the half-buried awaken within me and I’m trying to catch the breath of eternal soul, making wine from love and pain.


A beautiful face will get you everywhere. Almost.

Beauty isn’t all that. We’re so conditioned by the “Halo Effect” that we are fast to assume that beautiful people are happier or that they’ve got it easier because of their above-average looks. How did we wind up so hyper-focused on youth and exterior beauty, anyway? As if being or possessing beauty makes the secret sauce for all of life’s pleasures. Maybe it isn’t fair that some of us come into the world with an advantage like perfect symmetrical features or a multi-million-dollar inheritance. …

Quite a few moons ago and hanging out at the beach, I was surprised when my cousin told me that she had never reached an orgasm during sex. As in, ever. It got worse. Apparently, she hadn’t ever experienced an orgasm — period. And had never actually taken the time to explore her own body and bring herself to climax…


Because life isn’t about to wait for you to get real.

So much noise. Life has a way of creating such a racket that it can be difficult to see where you’re going and who you’re meant to be taking with you. Especially these days when everything feels fast and expendable. Including people. Maybe that’s why we are so conditioned to cling onto relationships that have clearly run its course, and why many of us choose to stay with a partner who…

Honestly, I’m not a Valentine’s Day kind of woman. I won’t lie, there was a time when it might have meant something to me. When I fell for the “flawless” romantic Valentine’s Day hype we see in the media. You know, the pipe-dream feeding us the scoop about how important it is to celebrate love on this one particular day of the year. As if those 24-hours could actually determine the authenticity of your relationship. The bigger the bouquet, the bigger the love, right?

Wait. Don’t answer that. It was a rhetorical question and I was…

Sometimes the writing life can feel like one big hustle. I’ve got the tattoo on my left leg and the garter on my right. I’m wheelin’, dealin’, writing. I’m holding a wild deuce one day and the next, I’m folding, ready to walk away.

The Jack is my all-time favorite AC/DC track but I don’t always know how to play them fast, I’ve never actually contracted the Clap and I’m definitely not always holding a Royal Flush.

But that’s life. You get to play the full house. Count your money. Then, life plays a card that’ll bring you down. …


Some connections never die.

The idea of having lived before can be difficult to wrap your head around. As humans, we’re so ingrained in the here and now; caught up in our current life drama. That’s completely normal. It’s easy to believe that this present physical life is the only reality. It’s not as if we have tangible evidence to prove that we once walked the earth in a different skin in another lifetime, any more than we have concrete memories of knowing…

Love. Wisdom. Fusion. Power.

These qualities are what first comes to mind when I think of synergy. The word itself rolls over the tongue effortlessly; fluidly. As if by uttering the name is enough to conjure and connect with the divine nectar within. That’s the thing about synergy. It’s more than just a word; it’s a way of being.

Synergy is love

It’s the universal magic that dwells at the core of your heart. The vibrant energy within ready to unfurl and expand through remarkable collaborations. …

So, it’s magic time for your kid. He or she is all worked up, walking on sunshine and giddy in love. He even seems to have a glowing aura about him. You barely see him anymore because he spends all of his time with his new partner, until the inevitable happens — they move in together. You should be happy for your child but you can’t seem to find that place within. For whatever reasons, you can’t stand this person. …
