From the Desk of the Spiritual Vixen

Welcome to my blog. I am a writer. Which is funny because that statement comes with the same baggage that I felt when I admitted I was an alcoholic. This gentle admission feels risky. Why? Because I am a terrible speller, a reluctant rules follower and byslexic (dyslexic to you normies). 

Never-the-less, it is what I am. I am also a cockeyed poet and philosopher. I crave a deeper conversation, I melt for rhythms and riddles and romancing ideas. I like to peek beneath the hood. I celebrate Pandora and all the curious cats who what to pull things out of boxes. These things are not so much badges of honor but character defects. Still I accept them as I have accepted my alcoholism, and I hand them to my Higher Power to be used for a higher good. 

I invite you to read my “mad rambles” AND add your own. PLEASE! Tell me your stories. Write me back. Leave your mark. Be my pen pal. I think that would be cool so I hope you join me in the conversation and contemplations of all that is wild and wonderful. 

Write On!

Love,

Maureen

A Good Story

A Good Story

In every good story there are setbacks- obstacles that seem insurmountable- so that when the hero rises with the prize, our faith is restored. Plus the obstacles and setbacks just make the story more interesting. Tonight in Iceland many are celebrating Jólabókaflóð,...

Winter Solstice

Into His Presence would I enter now   “This is a day is silence and of trust. It is a special time of promise in your calendar of days. It is a time Heaven has set apart to shine upon, and cast a timeless light upon this day, when echoes of eternity are heard. This...

Your Divine Ideas

When a new concept comes do you negate it or embrace it? Do you hold it close to your heart? Or do you shove it to the back of the closet because you are too busy to see it through? Do you struggle to imagine how you will ever have the time or resources for the...

Unconditional Receiving

Unconditional receiving is the masterclass of acceptance. This month at SpeakEasy we’ve been talking about GRATITUDE and THANKSGIVING. It’s not surprising that all the appreciation began circling back on itself… and some of us may have found ourselves in a classroom...

What are you No-ing?

What are you No-ing?

Hey Beauties,  This past week, I cleaned and cleared my office, and then moved on to my spice rack, my closet, my calendar. In the minimalist climate stirred up by the likes of Marie Kondo, I am mastering the art of letting go and saying, “no”. Which is a small...

The End Of Seeking

The other day while in meditation and I found myself having an in-depth conversation with my Divine. I was struggling to understand the purpose of this world. "Why do I continue to fall asleep? Why do I need to repeat these lessons over and over? Why do I seem to be...

MY BEST T.I.P.

Getting ready to leave for Madeline Island I decided that I would bring my 20-year-old juicer and about ten bags of carrots. Not sure why. I had never taken my juicer before. But apparently, this would be the year that I would be drinking carrot juice on vacation. At...

No Limits to Love

No Limits to Love

This picture was sent to me this morning from my dear friend Kelly McGarry who was my roommate in my early acting days in New York. Me and the O-man were in Martinique traveling around with a jazz band. I played the role of nanny for the musician's kids. I remember...

I am LIGHT

Miracles are seen in Light. The miracle is always there. It is not special it is normal. But when things are heavy or when we are romancing a problem it is hard to see the solutions. We have normalized the problem and stigmatized the solution. Sometimes we romance the...
