Lucia Maya with Elizabeth Blue

Elizabeth Blue and Lucia Maya

Luminous Blue Blog

This blog brings readers along on my journey with my daughter Elizabeth Blue during her year of living with cancer, and dying in an incredible state of grace. It offers current insights and revelations, and combines my writing with Elizabeth’s poetry and memoir.  Read Luminous Blue Blog here

My Writing on Grief

I was invited to write a chapter in a beautiful book on the loss of a child. Each chapter details the story of the relationship we had/have with our child, and how we, as parents, have found ways to survive and thrive in the face of the immense grief of losing a beloved child. You can purchase Loss Survive Thrive in Kindle or hardcover here.  My chapter is titled “Losing Elizabeth and Gaining in Love”.

Healing Meditations

Lucia Maya reading “Grist for the Mill” Meditation written by Ram Dass and Stephen Levine
This meditation was recorded during a Oneness Blessing Circle on May 23, 2012.

Movies and videos with beauty and depth:

Talk by Dr Benjamin Asher, an amazing healer/physician in NYC. He talks about moving from fear-based medicine into the field of love, where we experience true healing.
This is the core of my own healing practice as well – I see energy healing/Reiki as a way of bringing Divine unconditional love through me, to my client. And the conversation/teaching always circles back to finding ways to be grateful, and loving what is, rather than what we think it “should be” or what we prefer…

Jill Bolte Taylor’s Stroke of Insight
