Intuition: Right or Wrong?

You’re trying to make a decision. You know what the options are, but not which is best for you. In the deeper part of your mind, and perhaps in your body, you feel that one option is more beneficial than the others. You know, without having to think about it, that this is the choice…

What Is Intuition?

I talk/write quite a bit about listening to your intuition. It occurred to me that I don’t think I’ve ever really explained what I believe intuition is. One definition of intuition is “a thing that one knows or considers likely from instinctive feeling rather than conscious reasoning.” It’s a deeper knowing than conscious thought. Sometimes…

Use Your Discernment

From Vocabulary.com: “The noun discernment describes a wise way of judging between things, or a particularly perceptive way of seeing things.” As humans, we judge things–and each other, unfortunately–all the time. But for some reason when it comes to receiving readings, channeled messages, etc., some of us suspend judgment and just go with whatever the…

Continuing Changes

As I wrote last week, I recently gave myself the gift of spending some time away. Although this was mostly to give myself space for my ongoing healing journey, I also did some work on RiverEvolutions while I was gone. I’ve blogged a couple of times in the past month or so about changes that…

In Hiding

NOTE: This is a revised version of a post that originally appeared on this blog in 2017. I am choosing to share it again because it is relevant to a situation I’m living through now, and because I’ve made strides in this area that I wanted to share. “Living your truth” is a big thing…

When to Walk Away

A few years ago, I was part of a group of people I considered friends. I socialized with them. Had online conversations. Told them things about myself. I liked most of them, and I thought it was mutual with at least some. Then I learned the sad truth. Some of them were not only saying…

Things Are Shifting

I’m realizing that a lot of things have shifted for me. I’m not sure whether depression is playing a role, or the current health situation (which may be leading to depression, honestly), or something else entirely. I was still working on my business, RiverEvolutions, when all this started, but I hadn’t had a paying client…

Unseen Effects of COVID-19

Note: This appeared as an article in my May 20 newsletter. I have chosen to share it as a blog post as well in the hope of reaching a wider audience. In Stephen King’s novel The Stand, about a manmade pandemic ravaging the world, he devotes an entire chapter to snippets about the people who…
