• Choosing your signs

    Recently my son Cory asked a question during a meditation class. He asked, Can a person choose what their sign will be? I remember telling him that it is a good idea, to be open to signs from God and the Universe and I felt that it was better to be open than to just decide. My reasoning was that when we are open and aware, even somewhat looking, we leave room for it to be the one from God. But I must also admit as I think about it there has been times that I have chosen signs and been shocked at how incredible of a sign they turned…

  • Make Haste and Appreciate

    My teacher Mr. Ambrister used to always say “make haste while the sun is still shining”. He meant to take advantage of good times and good conditions, after all we never know when things will change. He meant this in terms of life situations and in terms of meditating.

Then I happened to wake up after going to sleep and my favorite television show, Being Erica, was on. Just before watching I had opened up Wise Words, the second book I wrote, based on lessons I learned from my teacher Mr. Ambrister. It…

  • Groundhog Day (Movie Interpretation) For Spiritual Holiday

    Groundhog Day is one of my favorite movies. People everywhere seem to love this film, whether they consciously notice its deeper messages or not. This of course is the movie in which Phil, played by Bill Murray, is stuck in a time loop, and has to live through the same day over and over again. It also happens to be the day that he hates the most, Groundhog Day. No matter what he does it seems as though he cannot get out of this day and this experience he hates so much. We’ve all felt at times as though we were stuck in Groundhog’s Day, repeating similar situations over and…
