Embracing Sensuality

IMG-20130111-00108

My pursuit of pampering continues with the exploration of sensuality. Sensuality, not sexuality. I might explore pampering through sexuality, but focus people …sensuality. Sensual: arousing or exciting the appetite or senses. It was quite accidental! Hubby and I went out for Date Night and selected a restaurant that was recommended to us. This landed us […]

Book Review: Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit

Full Cup Thirsty Spirit

It is pretty obvious I like Karen Horneffer-Ginter’s book Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit. I have already referenced her in these three posts: I Carefully Selected My Word For 2013 My Love Hate Relationship With Lists How to Regain Balance.

“Typically in order to bring balance to our system, we need the opposite of what we’ve been immersed in.” _ Karen Horneffer-Ginter in Full Cup, Thirsty Spirit Often it is the simplest sentence that brings me up short while reading.

Last week I announced my Word for 2013. It is pampering. I also vowed to consistently pamper myself through out this year and report back to you.So, my first pampering action was to go to a coffee shop. “Geez, Eliza, that’s it?” Well, yes.

Last night I attended the Loreena McKennitt concert. Not only was it an experience of her phenomenal music, but she told wonderful stories as well. In one of them, she said it always fascinated her how it is a very human experience to develop an affinity to trees. This one sentence jumped out at me. […]

Sometimes rules do not apply

Something comes up in every single Tarot workshop I teach. It is the “How do I” question. How do I shuffle the cards? How do I select a card? How do I store the cards? Consternation is written all over my students’ faces when I respond with “However it feels right for you.” Invariably, they […]
