Forget "Norms." How About Seeking What's Just and for the Good of All?

Sameness keeps us comfortable but do we grow and evolve and live rewarding exciting lives in sameness? Is sameness actually a square, a box we choose to remain in for comfort’s sake? Comfort to a point is good, for sure. But living inside the comfortable square all the time literally boxes us in and keeps us from exploring what could be.

What I Call the Eckhart Tolle Moment: Accessing the Pure Here and Now Moment Through Getting Present to OurSelves

Sometimes the introduction of a book is equally as powerful as the content of the book itself. Eckhart Tolle’s introduction in his book The Power of Now is one of those for me. I love when the author tells the story of how the book came to be because it’s vulnerable and allows us to connect with the author in a real and deeply spiritual way. The first time I read this introduction, I was wowed. Tolle had experienced the very thing I sought. Still, I realized I would have to find my own way to it since we are all unique and have written our own indigenous path.

How to Prevent Energy Vampirism

On November 7, 2018, the day after the mid-term election, President Trump held a press conference. He came to the podium very sombre and made a number of equally sombre statements and then the whole conference largely devolved. Accusations and hostility colored the entire event and he demonstrated in living color a behavior we’re extremely wise to be aware of and prevent—energy vampirism.

Our Leader Demonstrates What We Must Change Within Ourselves

Am I pointing out the obvious or can it really be that lots of people truly don’t see that when our president labels a black female reporter as stupid or racist or calls something fake news he’s really just pointing the finger at himself? Understanding that we almost always point out in another what is true in ourselves–the mirror reflection– is one of the first things we learn on the spiritual path. I know it doesn’t take formal learning to figure this out especially when we have such a loud and animated figure like the president demonstrating this to us every day many times a day. And this may be his true role—to make inauthenticity and dishonesty so unmistakably perceptible that we consciously choose to live the very opposite. Certainly, our world has been rife with dishonesty, cheating, lies, greed, hate, envy, pridefulness and just plain sloppiness. Maybe it’s time we come face to face with the ugly parts of our character that we deep down truly desire to transform.

Don’t Try to Make Me Take On Your Beliefs: How Mandating or Shaming Others to Adopt A Belief System They Don’t Feel Is Destructive to Our Societal and Spiritual Fabric

Whoopi Goldberg says it all the time on ABC’s The View. We are all free to adopt whatever beliefs we choose. If you don’t believe in or like what the person next to you is doing, then don’t do it yourself. Just don’t try to mandate how your neighbor should believe. Just go on and live your best life and stop trying to force feed your belief system into other people. You can offer what you believe to be true or right but it needs to stop at the offering. If your neighbor chooses not to accept your gift, then let it go.

If It's Drama, It's Ego: How to Live a Life of Serenity and Still Learn, Grow and Evolve

The bottom line is this: If it’s drama, it’s ego. In other words, if we have lots of anguish, quarreling, arguing, fighting, judgment, pointing of fingers, victimization, feeling sorry for self, arrogance, oppression, chastisement, need for self-importance and rigid dogmas in our world—it all comes from and is manufactured by the ego run amok. It certainly is not heart centered living. This is just what ego loves which is why it constantly seeks to create it. Ego dines on the negative destructive energies it helps us to create with our consent. But there is another way to live and live well.

Our Hands Were Made Not Just for Creating But For Healing

Our hands were made not just for creating but healing. We instinctively know this. It’s why whenever we or someone else gets hurt we place our hands on the wound without even thinking. The warmth and strength we sense from our hands can be soothing, yes, but there is something far more spectacular going on—light from within our beings is being transmitted to the hurt or ailing spot. The light constantly pulses through our bodies and is always available to us yet we rarely use it or even realize it exists.

Why Women Make Claims About Past Abuses Later In Life

I was a child of the 60s and 70s. My mom and dad came from worlds that didn’t look a whole lot like mine. My dad never spoke about his childhood and my mother grew up in a very sheltered religious household. By virtue of her upbringing, I was, too. She didn’t have any idea of what I would face as a young woman out in the world on my own in the 70s and 80s and because of this she couldn’t even conceive there was any sort of important advice to give me. I believe this may also have happened to many other women who are making claims of past abuses many years or decades later.

The Oversoul: Beyond a Limited Understanding of the Soul

Are you like me where every once in a while you come across a book you never want to end? I say to myself, “I’ll never find another book as great as this one,” and then I either start piecing it out to make it last longer or I just surrender and devour it nearly all at once. Oh, what the heck! Just go for it! And I do, staying up until 2 a.m. But every time I finish such a book thinking there’ll never be another… another one eventually comes along. That’s how life is, thank God. And that book has come to me and it’s putting concepts, ideas, feelings and beliefs into motion for me that are beyond the ones I had just yesterday.

Why Do We Apologize When We Cry? Tears Can Be a Sign of Strength and Authenticity

Do you feel uncomfortable when someone cries? Or does your heart just go out to that person? Do you cry freely or do you hold not just the tears but the feelings back? Do you see someone who cries as weak? Most of us have been trained since we were young not to cry, especially men, or at least to keep it to a minimum, but why? What is our belief system about emotional release? Could it be that the repression of emotions leads to imbalance and sickness? Any time we repress what comes naturally, this is unhealthy. It is widely believed repressed emotion causes cancer.

What You and I Might Do: How Shifting Our Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Posture Just Two or Three Degrees Can Create the Change We Seek In Our Lives

You probably can really relate to this: your life is great yet you have a desire to be and do more. You have more to give, ideas to materialize, and understandings to garner. But you feel a little stuck. You feel like you’re trudging through sludge. And you know you wouldn’t have these desires if you weren’t meant to accomplish them. So how do we shift our trajectory just enough to get us going again?

Today’s Goddess Is About Way More Than Fluff and Frou Frou

When we think of the term ‘goddess,’ we might think of a woman milling, maybe even sort of gliding or floating, about in wispy gowns wearing a crown of flowers in her hair.  We may think of a goddess as having loads of confidence, being a virtual fountain of advice, quirky and unusual. There really are many women who fit that stereotype, but the meaning of goddess as much for today’s world, as for the world of ages ago, is far deeper and far more multidimensional than pictures and images suggest.

Focusing On Your Positive Progress Can Change Your Life

I strongly suspect that if you look at the person you were one year ago and then look at the person you are right now there’s a remarkable difference. And the contrast is always for the better even if you’re going through a hard time right now. All this means is you’re going through an important life lesson that is ultimately going to evolve you by leaps and bounds.

Matcha—The One Superfood You’ll Want to Consume Daily for Longevity and Vitality of Life

If there’s one food we should consume almost on a daily basis it’s matcha–a powdered form of green tea made from the entire leaf and the most potent and healthiest tea in the world. Although it’s not a magic bullet, matcha stands out above all the other superfoods for many reasons. Its benefits far exceed those of regular green tea in drink form and a healthy lifestyle and the pursuit of quality longevity might not be complete without it even if you are already big on consuming a variety of superfoods.

Just Allow the Thoughts to Flow. Learn to Allow the Flow.

Meditation teachers always advise that when thoughts keep coming up while you’re in process of quieting the mind to merely allow them to pass across the mind. They say not to engage with or judge the thoughts. Just let them be until they eventually come to a stop. Most of what we think are thoughts are not actually true thoughts. They are usually no more than dredged up memories or anticipations of some future possibility—not true thought. In altered states, it can be a little easier for the mind to come to a full stop where we can richly experience the state of divine being. The first great experience with this is usually the most memorable so new and wonderful it is and there is one I have that will be lodged in my memory forever—it was so delicious.

Errors Are Part of Life: It’s How We Respond to Them That Transforms Them Into Light

With each life lesson that confronts us, whether it lasts for a moment in time, twelve hours, or several weeks or months, we can all agree that we learn and grow enormously. Each lesson enables us to slough off another sheath of density which may have been preventing us from clarity and infinite knowledge and wisdom. Before now we have thought we needed them for our protection but they really keep us from revealing our own brilliance. Read on for the inspiring example of one outrageous being who experienced life lessons much tougher than most of experience to become an ascended master.

Going Beyond the Surface Meaning of Trust: What a Divination Card Layout Showed Me

I’ve always been attracted to divination. Most of the time, I seek divine counsel in meditation and I do my best to remain connected to infinite thought throughout the course of my days, but sometimes I may use a tool depending on how I feel. Divination can be done with a dowsing rod, a pendulum, by asking for wisdom and then opening a book to a spontaneously “guided” page, by consulting cards (cartomancy) or remote viewing, to name only a few. (The Paranormal Encyclopedia lists more than 100 known forms of divination.) I have a deck of cards I love to use most when the feeling urges—Ascended Master cards by Doreen Virtue. Last night’s card reading was so interesting for me I felt to share it with you for the profound unfolding lesson it presents on TRUST.

Consciousness Makes Us Brilliant

Consciousness is like a sphere that has no bounds on how far it can expand–both inwardly and outwardly. We are all in that sphere somewhere. Where we are in that sphere tells us how conscious, awake, aware, and clear—even intelligent—we are. In fact, to become more conscious, we must clear away more ‘fog’ from our bodies, from our minds and from our auric fields. This is a continuous process because consciousness and our divine essence are infinite.

How To Express Your Own Indigenous Self in Sacred Ritual

On July 31, 2018, I wrote a blog post about a sacred moon ritual I entered into and the wonderful spontaneous experience I had diving deeper into myself. Through the years I have dipped into the sacred ritual experience now and again but since that night in July, sacred ritual has taken a more auspicious role in my life. It can be a high vibrational practice to assist you to make desired shifts in your life and to occasionally, hopefully more often than not, get more than a glimpse of your true Self.

Why Do Things Look So Crazy and Chaotic? These Are the Gifts Propelling Our Evolution.

Why are we faced with such enormous challenges on planet Earth now more than ever before? Because all of this is part of the necessary process of re-creation. Because the present way isn’t working and we have to see that it isn’t working very clearly in order to wake up. Because we’ve written all of this and we are destined to restructure and transform it.
