I read an article by Sally Kempton some time ago, and this paragraph stuck with me: “In the Indian tradition, life is said to have four aims — wealth, pleasure, ethical conduct, or goodness, and enlightenment—and they are meant to be held in balance.” She then asks what your life would be like if you were to cultivate each of these areas equally?
So many thoughts came though my head when I read this. So many endless possibilities. What if we were to set the intention every morning to equally cultivate these four aims? How could our life experience change and be richer, more exciting, more fulfilling? Read the rest of this entry »
We are all vibrant beings made of energy. And so much more is always going on than we are aware of in our current state of consciousness – one of these things being energy chords. I was guided to spell energy cords with an “h” as chords, so the concept of vibration would resonate with you as you read this.
As beings made of light and energy, we communicate much faster and clearer through unseen phenomena like telepathy and energy chords. These chords can convey positive or negative energy, emotions, sensations, and so forth. It just depends on the person, the situation and the experience. Some chords can be as thin as a hair, and carry a quick burst of energy, while others are as thick as a tree trunk, carrying lots of varied emotions and energy. These thick chords would have grown over time. Read the rest of this entry »
Usually when I go for my walk, I listen to a podcast. As I left this morning, my guides reminded me this is my time to connect with whatever comes up – usually a conversation with them. But today they didn’t talk much.
Today it was all about the breeze on my face, the sounds in the air and the beautiful shining sun. As I took this all in, more beauty appeared. Several blue jays and cardinals with their beautiful colors and happy songs joined the kaleidoscope surrounding me. Dogs and cats of all shapes and colors also entered the scene.

Meditation. One simple word that makes many people uneasy. As soon as I mention it to people, I hear 50 different reasons why they believe they can’t do it. But I know what a wonderful, beautiful thing meditation can be.
According to the Chopra Center meditation offers benefits on all levels of mind, body and soul, including reduced stress and anxiety, decreased blood pressure, lower cholesterol, better use of oxygen by the body, increased production of the anti-aging hormone DHEA and improved sleep.
I personally know the difference daily meditation makes inside my mind, and out there in the real world. So, when people are bewildered by it, I find it difficult to relate. In a quest to better understand the struggle some people face in their meditation practice, I have therefore explored some of the more common complaints I often hear. In the process I have formulated some guidelines that may help to make mediation less intimidating. Read the rest of this entry »
The ancient Native American art of smudging is a powerful way to clear the energy of a space or person. You can use the traditional dried herbs, or try the oils – it’s ideal for those who are sensitive to smoke. Unfortunately, our modern lifestyle does not always allow for physical smudging using the herbs, but there is an alternative.
When I found myself once in a place where I was not able to smudge in the traditional way, my guides revealed to me the following mediation as a way to clear my space and mind using a smudging visualization. This is ideal when you don’t have a smudge stick available or when you are in an area where you can’t use it.
This meditation is a great to clear energy in your environment of anything you feel is negative, or doesn’t serve you well. So try it next time the air feels heavy around you. Read the rest of this entry »
