Side Effects from Cutting Cords? Guest Post Dialogue


Blog-Buddies, I’m posting a series of interesting questions from “Mitzi” related to cutting cords of attachment. Originally, she sent one long post with a few parts to it. For clarity, I’ll respond with a comment, then post her next chunk of question like a comment, and so forth. I’m calling it GUEST POST DIALOGUE.

December Comment Contest


Ooh, my first year as a blogger ends with December, even if that “year” didn’t contain a full 12 months. To end the year in style, I have a challenge for all of you readers. Starting today, until the end of the year, I’ll be counting how many blog comments you post.

Are you spacey or grounded?


Grounding means taking reality checks. If you’re metaphysically minded, you might want to put “reality” in quotation marks. Okay, by “reality,” I  mean the shared reality that equates with being “sane” here at Earth School.

Grounding requires that each of us must be aware of what happens physically here: My body, my environment, plus any people who are near me.

Which Aura? Cast Your Vote


Yes, Blog-Buddies, I’m back. Not fully unpacked, nor caught up with the huge piles of mail on my desk, I’m still back. This means I can start reading people for the blog, again, whether auras or faces or, usually my fave, empathic merges.

Political ones will wait until the new year. Then, of course, I’ll be reading all the major presidential candidates.

Anger Management Opportunity, GUEST POST by Dianne






Blog-Buddies, Dianne Eppler-Adams reads life deeper from a huge vantage point, the solar system. Yes, she’s an astrologer.  

Dianne, pictured here, has guest posted here before. This time her inspiration was how Mars went retrograde (optical illusion from earth) in Nov 15. You may have already started to experience what she discusses in this Guest Post. Since this retrograde period lasts for 2 ½ months, her advice may help you now and for several weeks to come.

Float Boat, Fly High


Flying back to America from Japan, I read the most surprising article in my flight magazine. Did you know that round-the-world tickets are available now, with as many stops as you choose, for as little as $3,000?

You can make from 3-15 stopovers. Just fly in one direction only from your point of origin. Information is available here. And this book is recommended for planning: Rough Guides’ First-Time Around the World. 

The Big Blue Blob, GUEST POST by Lilylady


This morning I started my day by looking at a huge blue blob of shaving cream and some rather large globs of yucky tooth paste decorating my bathroom sink. Not that this was, at all, unusual–actually it’s so routine that I’ve almost become “accustomed to his space”, my husband’s that is.

This is not a tirade, however, about “guy stuff”. I’ve learned to roll with that. Amazingly, enough, it brought about one of those quirky “aha moments.”

Three Tangerines


My friend Kaori has brought me a gift of tangerines. Her father-in-law grows them. Anything from Kaori would be a treat for me, but frankly I don’t have high hopes for these tangerines. Never had I tasted one that was anything special compared to my real wonder foods, like strawberries or artichokes.Still, I put them in a bowl and try to arrange them nicely.

Mystery Money


Ever collect coins when you were a kid? Not me. Being math averse, I was satisfied to tell pennies from dimes.Money handling has grown more complicated since I began to travel abroad. My first week in Tokyo, for instance, I realized that some of the coins I was carrying weren’t Japanese at all. Nor were they American. How was I to make sense of all those jangling round things? They should be taken seriously. Yet they were baffling.Yowza, could this be how singles today feel about dating?

Sweet Potato Man


It sounds like a steamboat. Instead of passing by, however, as a normal steamboat would, the sound continues. Low, sweet notes repeat for how long, 30 minutes?I’m doing client sessions. All day. In fact, I am doing my final day of personal sessions for VOICE on this trip, working with a bubbly and bright young interpreter named Sayaka Kai.

After the client leaves, I run outside to the balcony at my sixth floor apartment. No boats are in sight. Actually this is not terribly surprising, since my apartment is, and always has been, located on a city street in downtown Tokyo.
