We're All in this Together

It’s been just about a month since the Florida Shooting. Students marched on the Florida House, asking them to ban assault weapons, and were met with refusal when not a single Republican voted to even consider banning assault rifles. Of course, all the Democrats voted to consider banning assault rifles. I only mention this comparison as an example of how divided along party lines we’ve become, and I can’t help but feel like I’m watching a three-legged race and the participants are fighting about which way to go.Somewhere along the way, we’ve lost our connection to each other and to the world. I know this is not really “news,” but we’ve lost s...

Zen Space - The Office Bright and Fresh

Zen Space - The Office Bright and Fresh

Now that I’m done with the clean out, I’m ready for the setup. This requires planning as well. Like I say, my office space is set up in a Ω shape. Once this space is set up to my specifications, I can reach anything I need to work on quickly and easily. Your space will reflect your goals and your personality.Part of setting up this space comes in the form of a vision board which I’ll talk about next time, but first, I get everything else cleaned and polished, so I can clear my head by clearing the space. That way I can focus on what I want to accomplish this year.The first thing to do is to make sure all the old clutter is off the desk, and o...

A Spell to Draw Love

A Spell to Draw Love

Bellisana 19/01/2018 0
 With Valentine's Day coming up, our thoughts turn more toward love. If you’re in a relationship, you want to find the perfect way to celebrate. If you’re not, you may want to find one. Our next few spells will focus on love, and on drawing the right kind of love to you. Often, we get an idea in our head of a specific person we want, even though we know that person may not be the best choice. It happens to all of us, and it’s hard to let go of that much control, but if we can, we can find the love that's right for us. Naturally, what makes a love the “right” love is going to be different for everyone, so part of this spell involves thinking a...

Zen Space: The Office

Zen Space: The Office

Bellisana 27/12/2017 0
Everyone needs a space they can go to meditate and perform other magical workings, but everyone also needs a harmonious space to work on day to day matters. Whether you work from home or have a job elsewhere, if you have a desk, you can make it more peaceful and productive. I redo mine once a year to start fresh. For me, this happens in December because one of the things I do is teach English online at a local Community College. The semester ends in December, so this is the perfect time to recreate my Zen space. This is when I do the fall cleaning and rededication of the office space to prepare for the coming of the spring as we begin the jou...

Letting Go and Saying Goodbye

Letting Go and Saying Goodbye

Bellisana 21/12/2017 0
A friend of mine passed away recently, and at times like this, I know many people, myself included, who can’t help but think about all the good times that we’ve had with the person who passed, and we all find ways to send them our blessings and wish them well on their journey. We all know those people who are just great guys, and you can’t say enough good things about them, and this man was one of those people. He was the father of four wonderful children who are no longer children, and grandfather to two who are children. He’s been a friend for more than 30 years, much as I hate to admit we’re that age, but he was smart and funny and kind. H...
