What’s your favorite thing about the Dalai Lama? His cute little smile? His snappy outfits? His unrelenting efforts in the areas of human rights and world peace? Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for world peace. But I just discovered something about the Dalai Lama that’s more amazing than that. Check it out: I recently [...]
Do you believe in soul mates? If so, do you have a vision of what yours looks like? Perhaps you’re married to your soul mate, so you have a perfectly clear visual. Or maybe you have an image of your ideal mate, but you have yet to meet. Or you already met, but it didn’t [...]
Remember the show Bewitched? Who was your favorite character? Was it Endora, the campy, bee-atchy elder witch? Or Darren – the guy who was so cool, he had to be played by two different actors over the course of the series? Or how about Gladys Kravitz, the nosy next-door neighbor who was always catching an [...]

When was the last time you were humiliated? How about mortified? For me, my last moment of mortification was just a few short weeks ago. It went like this: A neighbor of ours was standing in front of our home. She was walking her dog and had paused to stop and stare at our house. [...]
Have you ever been frustrated by affirmations and visualizations? Has your manifesting mojo ever been seriously stymied? You know the drill: You affirm it. You visualize it. You cut out little pictures from magazines and plaster them all over your face. Okay, not your face, but your wall. And your mirror. And the dashboard of [...]
How are you doing? It sounds so innocuous, doesn’t it? It’s right up there with What’s new? and What’s happening? All these questions require a reply, preferably one of a short, definitive nature: Fine. It’s going great. Super. Thanks for asking. As if. Here in America, we love snappy replies.

What do you do when you’re feeling crappy? If you’re like me, you have a variety of techniques to feel better, some of which work and some of which don’t.
