“If only I had started doing yoga ten years ago, I would feel so much better about myself today.” “I should have learned how to touch-type in high school. Now it’s too late.” Have you ever had thoughts like this? Most of us do occasionally. We look into the past with regret. We wish we had had enough foresight or will power back in the past so that our lives would be easier or more joyful today. When I catch myself thinking it’s too late to start something new or wondering if I’m too old, I remember an old Chinese proverb: “The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The … [Read more...]

It has been said "you will never change your life unless you make a change to your daily routine." These articles and videos offer suggestions of simple practices you can integrate into your daily life and, hopefully, make some of them life-long habits.
I remember how thrilled I was when I began communicating with spirit guides and angels. During healing sessions and meditations, it was exciting to feel the presence of non-physical beings, to know I was talking to spirit and receiving messages from beyond the veil. But after a while, I started having doubts about what I was doing. Sometimes I'd get bored connecting with the same guide all the time (and then feel guilty that I was having such a thought!) Here’s a question many of us ask at some point in our spiritual journeys: Question: Which guide or angel am I supposed to be … [Read more...]
Mamiko knocked on my office door. “Sweetheart, we have a problem, “she said. “My website is gone.” It was 3:30am. Because we were both suffering from jet lag after our long trip to Egypt, we were working and sleeping at odd times. I opened a browser window on my laptop and typed in her website address, mamikomaridianna.com. A completely white screen appeared. No error message. Nothing. This was indeed a problem. Mamiko’s website is a cornerstone of our family business, and this was a critical time for us. We were in the midst of promoting and accepting registrations for half a dozen … [Read more...]
A few months ago I posted a message asking if people we’re interested in learning how to communicate better with their spirit guides. I was pleasantly overwhelmed by the response. So, I've decided to post a series of short articles to share what I’ve learned about talking to spirit over the last 20 years. In each article I’ll answer a common question or share a useful tip. My heartfelt goal is to help you feel more connected and more confident about your communications with your guides and angels. I talk to non-physical beings every day. Sometimes I speak out loud, especially when I’m … [Read more...]
I hurt my wrist doing a handstand in yoga class. That was four months ago, and I haven’t been back to a yoga class since then. It’s still a little painful when I put pressure on my wrist. Even yesterday morning, when I was doing some yoga stretching at home, I told myself it had been four months and my wrist was still bothering me. Why wasn’t it healing faster? I even rehearsed in my head what I would say to the yoga instructor next time I went to class. “I hurt my wrist a few months ago and I’m still . . . .” Wait a minute! What was I doing? I realized I had been … [Read more...]
