It’s Time to Begin

It’s Time to Begin There comes a time when you know you must just begin. And though you may be caught in old habits that leave you treading water in half-hopes – you trust. You trust that what you desire has been placed on your heart by the Beloved and is therefore a...

A Soul Promise to Yourself

A Soul Promise to Yourself

  Last holiday break in December 2019, I took off some time to be with family and to chill. But I went back to work the day the kiddos went back to school - like January 2 on Thursday. On the following weekend, I thought, “Why didn’t I take the full two weeks...

Having the courage to face your fear and take a soul risk

Having the courage to face your fear and take a soul risk

Last night, I was talking to my sister.  I was feeling down, but I couldn't put my finger on what it was about.  In talking to her, I realized something: I have been playing it safe.  Yes, even though, as many of you know, I am writing (now editing) my second book,...

A Sacred Antidote to Anxiety

A Sacred Antidote to Anxiety

Resting in Her In meditation this evening, I laid down on the floor and I cradled my head in my hands – cupping my head ever so gently as though I were holding a newborn. Slowly, I touched the back of head, sides of my head, and forehead. The image of my mother...

Savoring a Break

Perhaps today you can hear the invitation of this "holy now" to take a break, drop into your body, evoke your senses, and feel the aliveness of this moment. It's my delight to be playing with creating poetic experiences for readers and clients.  In today's world,...

For Hope to Blossom

For Hope to Blossom

At the beginning of this pandemic, I went outside, stood on our deck overlooking the mountains, and I asked the Divine, "How can I help?  What do you want me to do?" Later in the day, when I was in the kitchen fixing lunch, I felt/heard it, "Lisa, use your poetry to...

Beside You

Beside You

Beside You I walk beside you. No need to worry. I am here with you, at your side. You do not go alone. When you breathe in, breathe in my peace. Let it flow into every cell in your body, softening what has been bracing for too long now. When you breathe out, breathe...

A Fresh Perspective on the Pandemic

A Fresh Perspective on the Pandemic

When I first heard that the coronavirus affects the lungs, I tuned in. I was concerned for my mom because she is almost 70 and she has only one lung. When she was in her early twenties, she lost her mom, her dad, and her grandma within the span of a short time. Within...

Today is a New Day

Today is a New Day

Today is a New Day Today is a new day. I begin this day with my hand on my heart – breathing in kindness, breathing out kindness. I choose to softly smile. Relaxing my shoulders, I know that God accompanies me wherever I go. I am loved – deeply, tenderly, completely....

With You

With You

With You Maybe the Universe is asking you to trust even more deeply to surrender even more fully to not know and still take a leap into the darkness and find that not only do you have wings but a thousand angels and ancestors are with you. Lisa McCrohan, MA, LCSW-C,...
