Message from the Universe

Shari, long weekend?

I get it… politics, chaos, a polarized world.

You probably won’t believe this, but I’m as powerless as you when it comes to living other people’s lives.

On the other hand, you are as powerful as I am when it comes to living your own life. You decide what’s meant to be. You can have anything you want and everything is possible – whether you lean left or right, are in the top or bottom 1%, read fake news, or dispense covfefe.

Don’t give away this power waiting to see what happens to the rest of the world, when you can decide what will happen in yours.

In awe of you,
The Universe

Full Moon today

On July 8th at 9:06 PM PT, the full moon will bloom at 17° of Capricorn. Sitting within a degree of Pluto, the deity of the underworld, this full moon is aiming to take us on a journey. One that asks us to purge what cannot support us in the long-run. One that asks us to acknowledge the systems and the structures that cannot support the weight of our potential. On that asks us to accept the difficulties in our lives so that we can be part of discovering the solution to it.

Message from the Universe… again

Lately, my messages from the universe have been kinda blahhhhh. I will read them and then delete. But every once in a while, one hits home and this one did…

Contrary to popular thinking, Shari, being worthy isn’t something you earn, it’s something you recognize.

And once you do, you won’t be able to think, speak, or behave in any other way than as if what you most wanted was meant to be.

You were born worthy,
The Universe



4th of July Pledge

The Pledge of Allegiance to Each Other

We the people are committed to our neighbors next door and miles away. We pledge to one another to live into a visionary American story of unity in diversity, and hope over fear.

To myself:
I pledge to love myself so that I might better love my neighbor.

To my neighbors:
I pledge to meet you at the table of community in which we can all thrive.

To those around the table:
I pledge to listen deeply to understand where your story intersects with and diverges from mine.

To each other:
We commit the time and energy needed to create a greater future. I will walk beside you, knowing that we may not get there quickly but we will get there together.


This 4th of July, do you pledge to stand with each other? To listen deeply and walk alongside one another — even in moments where we disagree?

Take the pledge for this 4th of July and beyond

Summary for June

On June 1, I started a new regime. I was going to re-start my 14 Secrets practice of doing a collage a day (except for Sunday), and make more blog posts here.

Success! I have made 27 collages during the 30 days of June so that was good! and I have made 19 blog posts in June. So. both of those are good things.

I was also going to try to exercise more, which I have done, but not to the degree that I wanted to. We have started our annual Water Aerobics in the pool, but my schedule has only let we work out or lead the class for a few times. And I have not been able to do regular exercise without pulling a muscle! Oh well… there has been some progress.

And I have made progress on the “manual” (i.e. non-digital) art front. I am enrolled in three different on-line art classes (the Continuing Metamorph with Erin Faith Allen

{which I have not been able to rejoin…}, a free Retreat with Amber Bonnici, and Ordered Chaos with Dina Wakley) and have another one with Erin Faith Allen that starts in late August. So the manual art front is looking good!

I have rejoined the writing group at the Senior Center and so my writing practice is starting up again. Bridge continues, at an accelerated pace…

June was a success all around!
