Sense-sational Blogging Challenge

Thanks to all for making this marvelous Blogging Challenge such a success. I always enjoy meeting new folks and cementing bonds with “old-timers” through this endeavor. We are expanding into December for those who are still interested in participating. My post is still in draft form so we shall see if we can extend the party a bit longer.

love to all, litebeing


Sink Deeper Still

Hey litebeings,

Just fell in love with Sue’s poem and want you all to feel the profound power of this piece. I felt such a shift just reading the words. I bet you will too. Have you reached the portal? Let me know in the comments section.

love you Sue!

Dreamwalker's Sanctuary

Close your eyes and sink into the velvet dark

Now concentrate, can you see that spark

Of light, that pin-prick hole

Sink Deeper Still, to the centre of your soul


Shut out the din, that constant clatter

Of who said what, and media chatter

Flick the switch, turn off the noise

Sink Deeper Still, into inner poise


And when you reach those velvet depths

Allow your heart, in beats get swept

With Cosmic waves of Peace and Love

Sink Deeper Still to float above


And as you rise up out of self

Your body’s functions no longer felt

That pin-prick hole now expands

Sink Deeper Still, to far off lands


For now, we’re free to fly afar

Remembering we are made from stars

Each holding codes of long-lost Light

Sink Deeper Still, now out of sight


And so, it is we ebb and flow

Poetry ~ Gratitude

wikimedia free domain

We celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States today. Gratitude practice is a large part of my life every day, in personal reflection and in my work as a therapist. So I am re-posting my gratitude poem from 2013 for you all to enjoy.

I have so much to be thankful for this year. It only took me a few weeks to obtain a new job, one that actually found me! I shed the victim persona, practiced Dr. Joe Dispenza’s chakra blessings meditation, and kept the faith.  I am grateful for renewed purpose, new friends and old, my beautiful nieces, and some improvement in health.

I am also thankful for my new mittens, that I found when I was shopping for something else. They are colorful, warm and very cozy, a pleasant alternative to my beloved gloves that did not last long as a pair in my possession. Life is about choices, compromise, and the willingness to dream a new dream. I am blessed to be able to dream again and allow new visions to take shape. Hint, hint, that is a thinly veiled reference to my blogging challenge taking place NOW.

While my life is far from perfect and it may appear that the planet appears to be imploding with negativity and regressive attitudes and actions, there is always hope. Every breath is a new beginning.

Where there is darkness. the promise of light is certain. Where there is light, there is love, and lite.

namaste, litebeing


G – Generosity of spirit manifesting in each moment, with each inhalation

R- Resilience in the face of darkness, supporting me through many a storm

A- Ability to share myself through writing, teaching, healing, BEING

T- Twinkle of light in a child’s eyes, the sunset, my heart

I – Inspiration that never ceases to amaze me and warm my soul

T- Treasures that unfold effortlessly and in a multitude of forms

U- Unconditional love , from Dexter, family of choice, my friends near and far

D-Dreams manifesting mysteriously and magnificently, especially here at WordPress

E- Eternal miracles, just waiting to be discovered, right under my nose

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holy-day. Maybe that’s because it arrives so close to my Midheaven, or perhaps it’s my mother’s incredible stuffing. Then again it could be the ability to include anyone you want at the table, without the pressure of gifts or material constraints.  Less hype, more substance.

I personally am not a fan of holidays in general. The Quakers were right in saying that every day is holy. It can be if we choose to live and love in each moment. What makes Thanksgiving sacred to me is the idea of a tribal feasting and gratitude practice. Frankly there have been some years where I had difficulty reciting my blessings round the dinner table. Life has not always been kind or simple. Tomorrow it will difficult for my family to shut me up when it is my turn to share my blessings. With tears in my eyes and a glow in my heart, I am so aware what a remarkable year this has been! No, it has not been without challenges, mishaps, losses, and delays. But this is the first time in decades where I have realized so many of my original dreams and desires. Sometimes I just have to pinch myself. I never knew life could be so incredible…

But then again, it’s probably the stuffing, yummy!

Wishing you and yours a Blessed Thanksgiving, even if you do not formally celebrate! Let the love and bounty into your heart and tell everyone that you love them…

Just a quick hiya! to everyone out there. I have been so busy lately with my new job and adjusting to my  longer commute and all that entails. However, I have a few posts patiently waiting in draft form, all for your reading pleasure.

In the meantime, a few thoughts: Did you know the Samhain, the cross-quarter holiday from which ( or witch) Halloween descended is meant to be celebrated at 15 degrees Scorpio? This means it really is the most liminal between November 6 – 7. Since my birthday is November 6, I find this somewhat ironic. This is because I am not really a fan of Halloween. As a kid, I enjoyed getting candy and going to Halloween parties, but trick or treating freaked me out a bit. I am not fond of masks and scary, bloody costumes or decorations. However, I recently visited a buddy of mine who creates an over-the-top Halloween  display and it was incredible. Visiting with all of his cats was also a highlight.  So you may ask yourself, what kind of Scorpio am I then?  Well, that is a good question..

The suggestion that the veil is thinnest at mid-Scorpio makes perfect sense to me as the middle of a sign is where it is most powerful. I am fascinated with medium-ship and most occult practices, as many of you know, but not into blood, gore, spiders, bats, et al.  I am writing about this now to let readers know there is still time to make connections with guides, loved ones, and any other spirits that dwell in other dimensions. We are still only a few degrees out of prime range, so if you want to do some inner journeying, go for it. I am not certain exactly why October 31st was chosen, but it may have to do with calendar system changes. I also read there could be a Pleiadian reference, which is very cool in my book. If you know the reason behind this date change, do tell!

It is winter here in Philadelphia, weatherwise, and I actually enjoyed putting on my winter jacket today for the first time this season. But then I thought about the gloves. I think I will seek out new gloves, or the very least, come to terms with the fact that I identified so strongly with an article of clothing that was not in my possession for very long. I am not certain at this point.

Before I go, allow me to give a shameless plug for my Sense-sational Challenge, which is in full swing.  There still are slots available so if you are on the fence, please get off of it and sign up.

Plus, you get to display this groovy badge on your site. What more could you ask for?

Until the next time, go ahead and embrace the unseen and mysterious a bit longer before we move ahead to full tilt Turkeypolooza mode here in the States.

With Jupiter in Scorpio, we can go deeper into mystery and find more of what appears to be missing. It could be the resurfacing of joyful memories, a hidden talent, messages from the ethers, or a missing glove! public domain

Sense-sational Blogging Challenge

Update: Tomorrow November 7th kicks off our challenge with the uber -talented, sweet, and incredibly creative Shree !

Keep checking here ( post will be pinned) for updates on the schedule and all things Sense-sational!

Hello Litebeings, I have concocted a simple yet intriguing blogging challenge for the month of November. In fact, it is simply sense-sational!


Since we all have decided to incarnate on planet Earth, one of the perks we get to enjoy is the use of our senses. The physical body and material plane allow us to experience sight, sound, taste, smell and touch. I am not certain if or how they operate on other dimensions, but let’s just shelve that question for now. It is quite phenomenal that we get to live in form and yet remain spiritually attuned ( more and more all the time!). I am theorizing that by focusing on the gifts of living an awakened existence while housed in form, we can become even more integrated and less scattered. Perhaps we can also have some fun at the same time.

Plus you also get this glorious badge to display on your site, courtesy of Sue!


1- Answer the following questions:

                   Which senses bring you joy and delight? 

                   How do they help you live a meaningful life?

 2- Choose a date in November and let me know in the comments section.                

3- Link to this post and mention  ” Sense-sational Challenge ” in your post.  Also link to the blogger whose entrie follows yours at the end of your post.

So that about covers it. If you want to showcase your art, poetry, music, culinary recipes, aromatherapy, bodywork, go for it. There are no limits to your creativity!

I will keep a schedule for everyone and serve as official cheerleader.  I am also hoping those awesome folks ( Rara, Shree, Ka, and company) at NanoPoblano will get inspired and use this challenge for one of their November blogs. public domain

Let me know if you have any questions and don’t forget to give me the date for your blog.  Thanks in advance for participating. 

Let the games begin!

Scorpio ~ ahhhhh

The sun moves into the sign of Scorpio Monday 10-23-17. With Jupiter in Scorpio to join him ( Exact on 10-26-17) this will be an especially incredible “season”. So I re-introduce this old chestnut to get you in the mood. Namaste to all ❤

Ahhh Scorpio, where to begin..  Well, let’s start with the featured header. It is a picture of purple chrysanthemums I took near my house. Notice how at first glance these scorpio flowers sporting scorpion fuchsia are out of focus, mysterious, difficult to get a fix on. Now move your laptop or device further away and notice how the image becomes clearer and better defined. This is part of the Scorpio nature. We are difficult to assess, but can become better known if you persevere and change your perspective. Now mind you, I planned to take a clear picture and it looked fine on my phone. But it translated differently and served me well to prove this point about Scorpios.

Guess who’s back?

Hello litebeings! How have you all been? I took a brief hiatus and made the blog private for a little while. It is not a long story, but it requires a long explanation, so for now let’s just say it is great to be back!

I have been ruminating about identity and how it affects my growth potential. I have been busy researching my family tree and learning more about the various cultures that appeared in my DNA sample. This is a work in progress that I suspect will influence my writing for at least a few future posts.

Another sign of identity morphing is when the outside world works hard to get your attention.  I had two incidents occur back to back that definitely caught my attention. First I cracked the glass on my MSS diploma from Bryn Mawr and this really stung. I must admit I am still attached to my association with Bryn Mawr and that attachments can interfere with one’s forward evolution. Finding a balance between appreciation and over-identification with achievement is my objective here.

Then the following day I get notified that someone may have made a fraudulent charge on a credit card. I did not recognize the charge so I cancelled the card and froze my credit reports with all 4 US credit bureaus. I told myself I will probably meet someone at the bank since I was destined to change my plans and go there to get a new card. So within seconds of leaving my car to approach the bank, a woman smiles at me and calls my name. She was a former supervisor at the City who I have not seen in many years. She is a lovely person and I was happy she recognized me. You may recall that these ” collisions” don’t faze me anymore. I still appreciate them, but they are no longer a surprise. So later that day I get an email from that “fraudulent” vendor and realize that I made the purchase after all! So all these worries about identity theft were a waste of energy. I experienced such a reversal that it made my head spin! Yet I am glad I froze all my credit in light of the Equifax data breach. I am also glad I ran into my former supervisor. But I wish I did not get caught up in such paranoia as a result of a phone call from the fraud prevention service. They have a system for deciding which transactions are suspicious and it was up to me to figure out the details. If I was calmer and more grounded I may have recognized the charge as legitimate, but that did not happen.

What does this have to do with identity? It has to do with victim consciousness. I felt like a victim and acted accordingly. I  can see that now. This is a trap for those with heavy Neptune energy. In my case a Pisces south node in the 1st can appear as a victim mentality. So I have more work to do in this area.

Reading Leigh’s fascinating musings on identity truly helped me formulate many insights about my own journey, some of which prompted completion of this material. Please check them out for yourself, starting here.

It is great to be back in business here at WP doing my blogging and keeping it real. Thanks for listening! public domain

The Liteness of Being

A while ago I hinted at a new post where I would describe my emerging intuitive process. I am ready to do so now, with the awareness that this may have to be re-imagined at a later date. Somehow I know it is important for me to put my thoughts down and share them with you, before I forget… Do you know what I mean? Have you ever felt that way yourself?

Here is a soundtrack to accompany my musings:

It is the truly interesting how subtle my guidance is most of the time. Since my goal is to expand my awareness and notice as many signs as possible, “capturing” each experience seems like a good idea. What I have recently pondered is that these instants are more real then “ordinary” routine living.

Here’s an example: For me, meeting people in odd places and hearing songs that are connected to my thoughts have now become ordinary. This doesn’t mean that they are irrelevant, just that they don’t strike me as novel anymore. It is also getting to be the same with spotting 111 and 1111. So when  I observe an event that is both subtle and novel, it makes a stronger impression.

So if I am looking at the red chicken curry in my freezer while a tv commercial broadcasts “red chicken curry” simultaneously, I take pause. Or when I am uploading a Poplar painting by Monet to the blog, then switch to Facebook and see the exact same painting on my news feed, I may get goosebumps. Or when a day or so after a psychic designates caterpillar as giving me a significant message and about 30 caterpillars fall from a tree above me and bounce on my head and my car as I prepare to drive to  last week’s  job interview, my heart beats faster. All these events did happen to me exactly as described. When I saw all these caterpillars rain on me, I was in such awe. It felt similar to when I am in a dream and get that knowingness that I am indeed dreaming.  Space and time were frozen and all is as it is, and it is simply divine.  Caterpillars are harbingers of transformation and I clearly am in the midst of a major one.

So what do I mean by “real ” ?  This is where it gets a bit challenging. When I discard the constant chatter and analysis in my brain, I am left with a feeling of completion. It is a sense of resignation, of inevitability. I do not have the why figured out, it is a feeling of being temporarily taken out of one’s “story” and placed in a dimension where circumstances are natural and in the flow. Am I describing the 5th dimension ( my analytical mind wants to know) ? Maybe.

I do wish I had pictures of the caterpillars, but I did document the traveling grasshopper last year, so that’s something! I realize this proof is unnecessary, just a crutch until I learn to accept the unusual to be the new normal.

Tell me what you think. I would love to hear about similar experiences or your take on how one recognizes “reality.”

Pluto station – purge, clear, forgive, release

Howdy litebeings! Pluto stations direct this Thursday 9-28-17. This occurs right before Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish Calendar. It is called the day of atonement, aka at-one-ment. This station is a BIG deal! Do the work, I promise to do it alongside of you.
Namaste, litebeing

litebeing chronicles

On September 20, 2013 at 11:29 AM EST, Pluto goes direct.

Here are keywords for Pluto – the masses, underworld, regeneration, crime, rebirth, obsession, slow growth, undoing, transformation, power, control, redemption.

Depending on where you live,  you still have at least a few more hours to work with the Pluto energies.  I checked first to make sure everyone has some time! With so many international friends now, I am more cognizant of the ” movement” of time….   see

I would not worry about where Pluto resides in my birth chart or where it is transiting currently. Pluto makes its presence known and for the purpose of this post, I want to accentuate tools over technicalities. What is crucial is to find the proper tools that suit you.  I like dreamwork, prayer, chanting, letter writing, meditation, rummaging through both literal and metaphorical closets and drawers, griefwork, exercise, journaling, drumming and…

Got the 1111?

UPDATE: I gifted a free tarot reading to my 1111th follower Tatjana, who blogs at Congratulations! I look forward to providing you with a reading soon.

Hey litebeings!

It is a gorgeous fall day here in Philly and I have 2 job interviews lined up for next week. I am so grateful to have received positive responses to my resume and am hopeful I will attract the employment setting that is for the highest good. I am also grateful my phone camera is now uploading so I can use my own images for this site. But that is not why I am posting today.

I am posting because I have , drum roll please, 1111 followers! Keep in mind that the number fluctuates according to social media and other factors, but the bottom line is that the number 1111 is radiating on the home page, doing its mystical thing.

I have a special gift in store for a lucky follower, so stay tuned! I realize that my stats will change so I want to capture this moment in time.

Thanks to everyone who reads my offerings, partakes of my services, and leaves comments on my blog. I am so blessed to have so many wonderful litebeings in my orbit.

love, litebeing
