Claire’s Rainbow Bridge Birthday Story

Telling a Rainbow Bridge birthday story is a Waldorf tradition that can be really fun and special as your child grows. It’s sort of like a birth story, but told in fantasy or myth-form. The Rainbow Bridge is the passage to Earth from the ether, spirit world, heaven, or whatever your beliefs may call it.… Continue reading Claire’s Rainbow Bridge Birthday Story

Energetic Hooks, Red Flags, and Charging for Spiritual Work

I got my third Reiki attunement from very dear friends back in 2016. These friends are powerful energy workers and healers, and I’m happy that we See eye to eye in many matters, both mundane and spiritual. That’s an uncommon friendship feature, when you stop and really think about it. Too many relationships seem to… Continue reading Energetic Hooks, Red Flags, and Charging for Spiritual Work

The Rainbow Bridge – A Birthday Story for my Boys

Written the first day of June 2006…in another lifetime…back when I felt the need to explain my choices to others. My spirituality is nothing to fear or worry about. It isn’t dangerous, or something to protect yourself from, and yet–it’s apparently very misunderstood by most people. Let me be clear: I didn’t “convert” to Paganism. This is… Continue reading That time I came out of the broom closet…
