Overview of the Latest Issue
The main article for the Holiday Season 2017 issue is, Remember to BREATHE! It's primarily a reminder to remember to love and take care of ourselves during the busy Holiday Season, when our attention is usually taken up with cramming as much shopping, running around, partying, and taking care of other people as we possibly can... just when the days are at their shortest, and the sun's energy is in shortest supply. Sometimes we just have stop, put our feet up, and remember to just BREATHE! The world won't fall apart if we just can't do it all! It's amazing how much we require and expect of ourselves—and how merciless we are in judging and berating ourselves when we fail to "live up"!
This idea that we can, and should, be able to do it all, control it all, etc., etc., was always ridiculous because, well, control is an illusion! That's just another symptom or by-product of the "Masculine Energies Run Amok" that we've been living in for the last many, many centuries. And now, the planet is being incessantly bathed with the energies of the Divine Feminine coming in to (finally!) rebalance things. The Great Revelations that we are all witnessing show that the Divine Feminine is making a comeback, and the old ways of doing things and interacting no longer work and—in some cases—are no longer tolerable!!
It's all to the GOOD, of course, but it does make for just that extra level of external chaos that we all have to wade through! And, of course, the external chaos is a reflection of the chaos—and, often, ambivalence and uncertainty—within US!
Taking good care of ourselves, taking time for ourselves, and remembering to just BREATHE, are crucial to preserving our sanity and our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being in these exciting times!

Welcome to my newsletter, Tunnel Vision! I periodically share observations, musings, and tips—based on what I learned during and since my Near-Death Experience—on where we are in the Great Shift of the Ages, how the Shift is manifesting in our lives, and how to navigate the waves of change, rather than getting dragged under, kicking and screaming! (Been there; not pretty!) The easiest way for us to make this great transition and transformation is to examine everything... what we think we know, what we believe, who we think we are, and how we act... and let go of everything that is no longer working for us, supporting us, or true. Letting go of judgments is the first step. I hope you enjoy my musings in the current or archived issues.

Read Tunnel Vision!
The two companion articles relate anecdotes and lessons from my own life about Learning to Release Judgments and How The Universe Talks to Us. To me, these are two of the most cumbersome issues to grapple with as humans! I was raised in an atmosphere of criticism and judgment—everything had to be judged and criticized, perhaps to demonstrate that we were on top of things, knowledgeable, and not likely to have the wool pulled over our eyes. Of course, it helped us feel superior, too, which made us feel better about ourselves. The underlying cause of all that was our not-well-developed self-love (actually, it was self-loathing but let's not put too fine a point on it!). I've spent many years trying to release my judgments, and my immediate inclination to judge, and the Universe and my guides have recently given me a few gentle illustrations and illuminations about how my judgments are often wrong anyway, and if I would just reserve judgment, and wait-and-see, I might find out that the very thing I thought was so wrong might turn out to be a good thing.
Those little illustrations led me to think about How the Universe Talks to Us, and how we can end up tying ourselves into knots trying to figure out what the message is or, if we get the message, what it means!! The Universe definitely has a sense of humor, so there is often humor in the messages it gives us. Sometimes a "sign" is an actual SIGN! Some people do really well at meditating for 20 minutes or more every day and get all the info and messages from the Universe/Guides/Higher Self/God that they could possibly want. For the rest of us.... not so much! Each of us has to discover the way the Universe talks to us. I get messages from dialog on TV and in movies, on billboards, and even on the sides of buses sometimes. It's like a little treasure hunt I play with the Universe!
They key, as will everything, is to relax into it, don't take it all too seriously, and just lighten up and play a little with it! It'll come to you!!
