If Our Past Life Experiences and Spiritual “Truths” Differ – How can we still Journey Together? #BeLikeAChild

Why are you here? How often do you ask yourself this question? I think I ask myself this question countless times everyday…how to answer the unanswerable? I have started by reading the theories and research of those interested and experienced in metaphysical explanations for what and who we are in order to formulate a working hypothesis…

How My Daughter is seizing back her POWER in the face of Chronic Health Challenges: You can too.

When Hana woke up from her surgery with a damaged brain my first thought and only instruction to myself was “FIX IT. And don’t rest until you do.” You know the story. I spent 2.5 years trying to FIX IT  – I was prepared to fight to fix it until the day I died. And…

Are these “Proofs” of Reincarnation? And how do they relate to Health?

It still feels weird talking about reincarnation – it is a concept I was deeply opposed to only six months ago. However, as you know, I’ve been allowing my mind to open and  have even began past life regression hypnosis myself so let me share these recent discoveries with you: I’ve read of some of…

‘I want to go back to where the Angels are.’ The day my Daughter told me she wanted to die.

Do you believe in Past Lives? Why I (now) do and an intro to Dr Weiss…

The Price Young Brain Cancer Survivors pay for a Second Chance – Blog for “Cure Brain Cancer”

My daughter Hana is a brain cancer survivor, but her survival has come at a price. Every day I witness her suffering as she pays this price. Here is a piece I wrote about the cost of surviving paediatric brain cancer for the “Cure Brain Cancer Foundation.” ‘You can’t say that!’ My husband says, aghast.…

Time to Write the Violence OUT of Kids Books: Article for Generation Next Community

Below is the link to an article I wrote for Generation Next Community. It covers the issues raised in Violent Death in Kid’s Books and The Problem with Adults Choosing what Kids read and puts it in the context of my own writing. It also refers to the Hunger Games Trilogy, but it is worth noting that the Hunger…

The Problem With Adults Choosing What Kids Read. Or: The Desensitization of the Gatekeepers

I suggested in an earlier post that Authors, who are in a unique position of power, have a moral duty to ‘Do no Harm’ to their young audiences by thinking very carefully about what they choose to write about. My main concerns are the increasing amount of violence and graphic descriptions of violent and gruesome…
