We’re all human, doing our best in a challenging world. Despite our best intentions, there are times when we need a gentle reminder to be compassionate with ourselves. I’m not the only person who forgets to be kind to myself because I often see this story come up in the Alchemy card readings I do with my friends and clients. For example, while at the Gypsy Glampout at LeFleur Decor in Hadley, the Sustain card came up quite a few times. So much so that I made a little video about it. “This card reminds us to take really good care of ourselves because whenRead More →

The Lavender Festival at Blake’s Orchard and Cider Mill in Armada, MI, went incredibly well. I was glad to be a part of the crew from Rochester Holistic Arts. We offered a free massage, healing lotions, jewelry, crystals, essential oils for sale, and Alchemy card readings. Although it was a little breezy, the weather was comfortable as we set up for all three days from 10 am – 5 pm. The event was jam-packed, with tons of people stopping by to look at stuff and get a few minutes of massage from our generous and talented crew, David, Brooklyn, Buffie, Brooke, Lisa, Kathleen, and Nic.Read More →

This week’s song comes from the Avett Brothers. With a light, steady rhythm, the lyrics remind us to stay tuned into the truth within ourselves. “Ain’t no man can save me. Ain’t no man can enslave me. Ain’t no ‘mount of man that can change the shape my soul is in.” Each one of us has a soul with which we can sail through the seas of life. Don’t let the worry, fear, and drama from other people steal the wind from your sails. “There ain’t nobody here, who can cause me pain or raise my fears ‘cuz I’ve got only lo-o-o-ve to share!

I’ve decided to start posting an “inspirational” song every week to offer a jump-start to your spirit, giving you (and me) a kick in the pants, a boogie for your bunda, and a bit of swing in your swagger. “Music… will help dissolve your perplexities and purify your character and sensibilities, and in time of care and sorrow, will keep a fountain of joy alive in you.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer I hope you enjoy this song. Let me know if you have another suggestion in the comments below. Have an excellent Monday and a wonderful week ahead. xoxo Pam p.s. Follow me on Instagram to see theRead More →

This post is part of my cornerstone content, written years ago, updated for today, and still inspiring wisdom and deep understanding. Many years ago, when my son was in elementary school, and my husband traveled a lot for work, I volunteered in my community, putting on events including the Beets, Beats & Eats Farmer’s market. Although I stopped in 2013, the years I spent working with friends in my community were some of the best in my life. (2021) (Originally written in 2012) Every summer, I put on a coloring contest called Enjoy the Process. It’s the one where everyone fills in this shape and thenRead More →
