COVID and the Toltec Masteries, Jasmine Gold

As Songbird navigates reopening, I have found myself drowning in a sea of differing beliefs about how to proceed. There are those who don’t want to go out until there is a vaccine, those who don’t think masks are necessary, and everyone in between. It’s […]

Cocooning and Transforming, Jasmine Gold

How often have you longed for the opportunity to relax and get away from the day to day stress of your life? Are you taking advantage of it now that you have it? The coronavirus is transforming the world. You have a choice how you […]

Fear and the Coronavirus, Jasmine Gold

There are two major responses I see to the new coronavirus – panicking or blowing it off. This is true for many things in our lives. Rather than go to one extreme or the other, the best approach is to be prepared and know the […]

Self-Love, Jasmine Gold

As Valentine’s Day approaches, many people start thinking about love and romance. Usually this is in connection with a romantic partner. When was the last time you thought about loving and romancing yourself? Here are some ideas. Spend time thinking about what love looks like […]

Stepping into 2020, Jasmine Gold

Over the last month, I have started regularly walking about 30-40 minutes several days a week. For me, walking is much more than physical exercise. When I walk, my mind can relax. When I’m relaxed and not focused on doing, ideas come to me. At […]

Priorities, Jasmine Gold

A few weeks ago I found out that a friend of mine, Robert Labensart, had passed away in July. It was a startling reminder to live life fully. We never know what is going to happen in our lives. The unexpected can occur at any […]

Mirror Work, Jasmine Gold

Have you ever looked into your eyes in a mirror and said to yourself “I love you”? This is a very powerful tool for discovering the limiting beliefs that hold you back from manifesting what you want in life. When you love yourself, the universe […]

Dandelion Filters, Jasmine Gold

What do you see when you look at this picture? A patch of dirt? A patch of beautiful flowers? A patch of weeds? Healing herbs to harvest? This is a great example of how we all have different perspectives. The lens we look though affects […]

Heart Harmony, Jasmine Gold

I recently returned from my ninth power journey to Teotihuacan, Mexico. I had intended to come back with concrete next steps for Songbird and me. Instead, the journey turned into a reminder to focus on being and not doing. This is the lesson that Spirit […]

Labels, Jasmine Gold

Is it spring, or is it winter? The plum blossoms are blooming at the same time as we have flooding from an atmospheric river. Often we have a tendency to slap a label on something, but sometimes labels get in the way. What would your […]

New Year’s Inspiration, Jasmine Gold

Happy New Year! What are you inspired to create this year? It is important to regularly check in with yourself to see if you are heading where you want to go. You may be surprised by what you discover. I recently realized I was inspired […]

Gratitude for Songbird Support, Jasmine Gold

The holidays are a time of gratitude for me which is why Songbird holds a Winter Gratitude Celebration. This month I continue the history of Songbird through expressing gratitude for some of the wonderful people who helped shape it in the days before we moved […]

Listening & Feeling Heard, Jasmine Gold

As I watch the Kavanaugh drama play out, I have been pondering how different it could be if both sides felt they were being heard. Even when you strongly disagree with someone, you can still listen to what the other person without making them feel […]

Success, Failure & Alignment, Jasmine Gold

What drives your actions? Are you afraid of success? Afraid of failure? Do you live your life in a New Age flow? Do you take action based on alignment with Spirit? Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference. When I am acting based on […]

Freedom and Spirit Signs, Jasmine Gold

With Independence Day coming up, I have been thinking about freedom. We have many freedoms that we can celebrate. What is a freedom that you are grateful for? I am grateful for the freedom I have to choose the life that I desire. This life […]

Reflections, Jasmine Gold

Over the last month I have been reflecting on the many unexpected ways my life has flowed over the years. The timing may be connected to Songbird moving upstairs right after my birthday as well as the upcoming summer solstice, astrology, and the many natural […]

Combining Songbird & Stones Throw, Jasmine Gold

When I bought the Songbird building five years ago, I thought I was done with remodeling and moving. Then Spirit called me to open the store 3 ½ years ago and to move it 1 ½ years ago, right before a fire in the building. […]

Love, Fear & Guns, Jasmine Gold

Since the Parkland mass shooting, my Facebook feed has been filled with posts trying to convince the reader that the author’s viewpoint is clearly the right one. Almost all of these posts are one sided. They do not take the time to compassionately explore and […]

Perspectives and Assumptions, Jasmine Gold

There are many ways to view life. A child sees life differently than an adult. A millennial and a senior see things differently. Men and women look at life differently. There are optimists and pessimists, liberals and conservatives, introverts and extroverts… These broad differences tend […]

Changing Views, Jasmine Gold

How has your view of the holidays changed during your lifetime? Do you have different views of Christmas and giving? Different views of New Year’s? Just like nature, my views are always evolving. The fires have brought another shift for me, just like the field […]

Moving Forward from the Fires, Jasmine Gold

On the night the big fires started, there was another fire that started in a field next door to me. It could have spread like the others did, but fortunately was put out quickly. I sometimes wonder why my home was spared when others lost […]

A New World

A year ago, my 21 year old child Quinn told me that they were transgender. This year, they transferred to UC Santa Cruz and are living in transgender dorm. Using the pronoun “they” like this is foreign to me, but seems totally normal to their […]
