I Found the Culprit

By Echo Bodine / August 27, 2010

I finally figured out why it seems like all of us are getting dementia. Yes, the 25 year- olds all the way up to the rest of us. I cannot believe how many times in the last few years I’ve been to the doctor to get my thyroid checked, my hormones measured, gone through bottles of gingko and drank oodles of herbal tea, all to figure out why I had such bad brain fog. If you’ve taken a class from me in the last 7 -10 years, you’re probably someone who finished my sentences for me because I couldn’t find…

Last night I watched a DVD on Prophecy by John Van Auken (the author that wrote the Jesus book that I’m always raving about). It was so fascinating to me to listen to his mind talking about all the amazing things he’s studied this lifetime. He talked about the Mayan Prophecy’s. The Biblical Prophecy’s. Edgar Cayce’s and Nostradamus’s Prophecy’s. All these great people that had visions of the future. Accurate visions. Visions from hundreds of years ago that are still coming true today. It all got me thinking today about potential. What if those people hadn’t pushed themselves to keep…


Being True to Ourselves, Tough Stuff

By Echo Bodine / July 14, 2010

Forty-two years ago, I had the “opportunity” to marry a man I really loved but my inner voice was yelling loud and clear NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. He was everything I thought I wanted. Handsome, funny, very smart, and the “opportunity” part was that we had a baby on the way!!!! There in front of me was the life I thought I really wanted and yet, my inner voice, the voice I had come to trust with all my life decisions, was telling me NO. If you’ve read my books, you know how the story turned out. I placed our son for adoption…


Sunday in Minneapolis

By Echo Bodine / June 27, 2010

In my last blog, I talked about this really cool book called Jesus: His Words Decoded, His Mystery Teachings Revealed by John Van Auken. Many of you have emailed to say you can’t find it in the bookstores so I suggest you go to and go into their bookstore. A.R.E Press is the publisher of Van Auken’s books. He’s got another one coming out at the end of June. I’ve been tossing around the idea of having a book study on Jesus but there’s so much on each page, it would take forever to read it as a group.…


It’s Time To Get Back to Blogging

By Echo Bodine / June 7, 2010

I don’t remember the last time I blogged. It’s been an interesting 5 months since the Center closed January 1st. Winter was a good time to go through the grieving of saying good bye to such a sweet place. So many wonderful memories. So many special people came through those doors. One thing I became aware of is how burned out I was/am, which is why you haven’t heard from me in a while. I’ve been sleeping alot and laying low. Seeing my wonderful chiropractor, Marcie New, at least once a week to get my adrenals back to normal and…


Plan B

By Echo Bodine / January 3, 2010

It’s the third of January, 2010 and the new year is already feeling pretty good with the exception of the frigid temperatures outside. The sun is shining, the sky is blue and I’m finally getting some guidance about Plan B. I had a nice spiritual experience the other night at the urging of my inner voice. Wednesday was a tough day at the Center as we cleared everything out of there in the frigid weather. Thank God for Larry (Sparky), Marina, Cathy and Kay or that place would still be filled with stuff. They worked their butts off, filling their…


The Best Present

By Echo Bodine / December 23, 2009

The other day I blogged about my favorite gifts as a little girl and tonight I want to blog about my favorite gift as an adult. I’ve got Christmas carols playing on the stereo (do people still use that word?). I’ve got really pretty colored lights on my back fence that I see every night when I’m in my office. Just about everyone I’ve encountered In the last week has been very friendly. As we wind down the shopping, baking and wrapping, that very old familiar feeling that my soul has felt for hundreds of years appears once again. That…


Tiger Woods

By Echo Bodine / December 16, 2009

Today I was shopping at a place that had big screen tv’s and there on every screen was Tiger Woods face holding up a trophy. An odd sort of chill shot through my body and I wondered how many people are being affected by his infidelities right now. It’s actually my inner voice pushing me to write this blog. It’s been bugging me for a few days and then today when I saw his face on every screen, I thought “Okay, Okay, I’ll write it” If you’ve read any of my books, you’ll know that I usually try to find…


Christmas Magic

By Echo Bodine / December 16, 2009

The other day I was baking cookies, thinking about Christmas and the memories I cherish the most. The thought struck me that I wondered why I always reminisced about my childhood Christmases and not any of the Christmases I’ve had as an adult… After much mulling over, I realized that as a child, there was always a magic about Christmas. The memories that came up the strongest were the plate of cookies at my grandma’s house every year. She would do a cookie exchange with her church friends and it was always fun to see what was on the plate.…


The Plan?

By Echo Bodine / December 13, 2009

I’m told that my mind jumps from one thing to the next in a matter of seconds because I have Gemini rising. Whatever the reason is, I can tell you one thing. It’s very annoying (but entertaining). So here we are, 12 days from Christmas and my mind is all over the place. The Center is closing in 18 days. I was over there yesterday, taking things off walls, reminiscing as I held each item in my hand. Several times I caught myself wondering if this was really the next step in my life. Letting go of the Center and…
