Got Flu? A Must Have Itemized List When You Have The Flu

Let’s face it. You feel LOUSY when you have the flu. You want all your needs to be taken care of, the house to clean itself and the kids to have “Rosey” the Robot from the Jetsons to take care of them.

If you are lucky enough to have someone take care of you or you have children who ask “Do you want anything mom?”, there are a few things that are a must have… Continue reading

Communication Is The Key

Share this

One of the stressors in our life happens to be how we communicate with one another. Any of you have teenagers? (I know you are laughing right now). Most of us think we communicate very well. Those of us who are parents especially think this. Many times however, we ourselves fall short in communication effectively.

A secret of happiness is … Continue reading

Body, Mind, Spirit Integration: It’s Time

Share this
Share

An interesting concept has been creeping into our consciousness: body, mind and spirit integration. For many years the body-mind connection has been reviewed, studied, and researched. We even have medical degrees in them. I am wondering if at some point in the future we will see a dramatic shifting in “western” medicine/thinking and the concept of spiritual connections will be embraced. 

As humans beings  we  are really spirits having a human experience. At the moment of our death, we weigh the exact same as the moment before when our spirit was still in the body. Energy practitioners can feel the human energy field that surrounds the body and often when working in it feel the changes that take place. Kirilian photography has documented this very nicely . In fact, the earliest work on the subject was as far back as 1898 known then as “electrography”.

So, if scientists have “seen” with their own eyes what energy practitioners have been feeling, then why hasn’t there been … Continue reading

Pay It Forward in 2008: Changing the World With Intention and Action

Share this

In the movie, “Pay it Forward” many people were inspired by a young boy who set out to change the world because someone asked him to.  The seventh grader was asked “What does the world expect of me?” and he answered “nothing”.

These two statements really had me thinking at this time of year when people are renewing new year’s resolutions and listing goals to achieve in the months ahead. If we are under the impression that the world does not expect anything of me then it will be harder to reach the set goals. If on the other hand, you believe there is an expectation that each one of us carries to be a part of change and the movement forward in evolution then our hopes and dreams have a fighting chance.

 Ghandi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world”. 

Wow, if we took this to heart and belived it, then maybe we could make a difference… Continue reading

A Christmas Message of Gratitude

This Christmas I gave my nephew Anthony a tee shirt with his name and the word “University” after it with a college coat of arms. I thought it was a cool gift, and in fact, so cool that I gave the rest of the family one of their own as well. My dad especially liked it. When Anthony opened his, I realized that it was too small for him and as it was a custom order, it could not be returned or exchanged. Not only did the size run small but also he had developed a teenage muscular shape that I had forgotten about.

I talked with him privately and told him how sorry I was that I had gotten a shirt that was too small. After the third time I said it he looked me in the eye and said, “that’s okay Aunt Donna, I’m grateful that you gave it to me”.

It is not often that a 15 year old stops me in my tracks. The wisdom of this young man and the extent of his gratefulness instantly… Continue reading

Day of Thanks and Giving

As my first blog, I felt it only fitting for it to be on Thanksgiving Day.

When I look back on Thanksgiving Day, I remember what it was like growing up as a child. There were lots of Italian-American food, cousins, aunts and uncles. We were the only girl cousins in our family so we got lots of attention it seemed.

My grandfather made his own wine in the wine cellar. My grandmother made meatballs and ravioli or lasagna. Turkey was not what we looked forward to at all. It was the Italian culture, food and family.

As I got older, I tried to integrate these concepts into my life. What really mattered was family.

Of course, good food and wine too.

Thanksgiving is a time of… Continue reading
