What’s the deal with Karma?

Dear Woo-Woo Debbi: What are your thoughts on karma? From all the teachings I’ve studied, I pretty much dismissed it from being real, although I think the Golden Rule is just plain good sense. Diana S. Colorado Springs, CO Dear Diana, Great question!...

How to be Happy—a Geeky Perspective

Particles, Waves and Happiness Back in high school, my quirky but passionate Physics teacher introduced us to particles and waves in an attempt to explain physical matter and energy.  Is it a particle…or is it a wave?  The answer depended on your perspective—and...

Is your Heart Hankerin’ for a Healing?

LOVE is. . . the great substrate of the universe, the stuff that remains when all that other acquired hogwash is removed. At least that’s part of the definition we came up with during my week-long residential Heartline program at the Monroe Institute...

Single for a long time? Take heart.

Perhaps you can relate. I’d been single for so damn long that it started looking grim—like I was on a long bumpy road headed straight for Spinster City. But I’d sooner take a cliff-dive drive, Thelma-and-Louise style, than reach that destination. I’d become...

Let Magic Find YOU

During my Inadvertent House-Flipper days in Oregon  I was just bursting with creativity. In fact, that’s what motivated me to buy my very own ugly-duckling home: it was a giant canvas. The fact that I was engaging in house-flipping only occurred to me...

Taming the Wild Mind

Does the term “remote viewing” conjure up covert government spy activity? Developed by the U.S.  military during the Cold War (remember that thing?), remote viewing is actually a highly structured tool for opening our human apertures beyond the five physical senses, and it’s...

Emotional Detox with a Fox: try the 7-Day Mental Diet!

Have you ever tried to abstain from negative thinking for 7 days straight? No negative-speak for an entire week, in your brain or on your mental plane? I’m talking about derailing trains of thought like these: resentment, frustration, worry, dread, regret, jealousy, disapproval,...

Aliens and Channelers and Joiners, oh my!

Doesn’t it seem like everyone and their uncle is channeling these days? Maybe it’s true what they say about the veil becoming thin (not unlike the hair on your uncle’s head). Recently I went to see a channeled entity named Lazaris in a...

Tapping into Something Powerful (EFT)

A few years ago I discovered the EFT, the Emotional Freedom Technique . . . which involves physically tapping certain points on the body that correspond to acupuncture meridians while simultaneously reprogramming the subconscious mind.  It’s sort of an East-meets-West healing modality. You...

Those wacky paranormal ’70s shows

My fascination with the paranormal was kindled long before I started reading woowoo books—hell, probably even before I could read.  Mostly, I blame the 1970s for my strange obsessions. Besides devouring library books on ESP, that decade found me staring at the boob tube,...

My Weekend with the Hay House Cult

One of those insomniacal wee-hour whims had me perusing the registration page for the Hay House “I Can Do It” Ignite conference. The slate was chock full of potentially inspiring speakers, but mostly I was excited to see Anita Moorjani talk about her near-death-experience...

A Goddess Allows

I just love how everything in this life is turn-key and divinely orchestrated. One of my soul sisters had acquired a book which she attempted to read, but somehow it just hadn’t resonated with her. Years later, she had a sudden inspiration to...
