Enlightened means ‘being in the light.’ It is the space where empaths, lightworkers, intuitives and healers practice and serve, but to become enlightened is something that all can enjoy.
Enlightenment represents attributes of behavior and lifestyle that embodies a high spiritual evolution. Traits of an enlightened person include humility, acceptance, compassion, lack of judgment and selfless service to others. There are so many positive traits in the enlightened individual that we should look up to. Read the rest of this entry »
A friend and I were chatting the other day of our personal experiences about the realization of the nothing-ness, or the eternal. Just like in the movie The Matrix, the mind can have little moments or blips in time where it pauses long enough for us to clearly see the comings and goings of life are merely that… they’re coming and going from our awareness.
During these pauses something opens up that allows us to notice the obvious – what is blatantly there when we see through the busy mind and how it clouds over the eternal. Our mind gets fixated on whatever is temporarily happening, and it rarely notices the backdrop or container that remains the same or constant amidst the change.
Satsang is a Sanskrit word that breaks down to Sat, which means ‘talking about the truth of my being,’ or the recognition that ‘I am the truth,’ and Sangha, meaning ‘with my community.’ Read the rest of this entry »
Devotion is a part of every spiritual path. Before you recoil in horror, it would be good for you to understand you already practice devotion.
You are devoted to many things, many people, and many concepts. You are devoted to your children, mate, friends, pets. You are devoted to a career, getting ahead, losing weight, working out, or practicing yoga. You are devoted sometimes to drugs, alcohol, self-hatred, self-loathing, unforgiveness of yourself, the relentless worship of punishing yourself for your perceived or sometimes real misdeeds.
You worship. You do. You spend hours on your practice. It comes naturally now, but did not at first. At first you had to spend hours on your practice, until it became a habit. Not only a habit, it morphed into your very identity, essential to you, your way of being, how you make decisions, how your prioritize your life. You have been doing your practice so long you forgot you created it, and carried it out until you and your practice have become virtually inseparable. Read the rest of this entry »
Remember when you were a child and you couldn’t wait for the new day to come, so that you could begin again exploring, learning, experiencing so many new and joyful things?
As you get out of bed and firmly plant your feet on the floor, feel the change in your energy. Instead of dreading the million and one things you are to do for today, choose to be joyous, free and excited to begin again.
When you were born you came to this planet operating in the higher dimensions. But as you grew up as a human, you began to function mostly in the 3rd dimension. So, if you are having a difficult time in this adult experience, remember what it was like to be a child.
Call forth those experiences of joy, of laughter, running through the sprinkler in the summertime, eating an ice cream cone in the hot sun, splashing in the lake, enjoying your life and being present. As a child no one needs to stop you and tell you to be present and breathe. Read the rest of this entry »
Whilst on a sojourn in the tender land of parochial goodness, I have found nature to be preferential and discerning, not at all encompassing and sappy, mind the pun! It has been as if there has been an awakening in the last few months of communication between all the species that has revealed intelligence far beyond ours, and it chooses whether it wants to talk to us.
What I have found is that they are profoundly annoyed by some humans’ attention. As an animal empath, I have found it profoundly disturbing to see the neglect against animals by their owners, whilst they can understand and not appreciate the messages from their pets. Read the rest of this entry »
As your ego is in the process of transformation, you will often find yourselves in the throes of fear or depression, or unrest. When the ego feels threatened, it is like a child throwing a temper tantrum, digging its heels in even more, wanting its energy to be expressed at a louder level.
We invite you to ground yourself now, feeling the roots growing out the bottom of your feet… deep, deep into Mother Earth. Feel her energy supporting you in this transformation. She is here to assist you. As you honor and respect her, loving her, she will become your ally, your trusted true friend and will assist you in unending ways. Read the rest of this entry »
As the months pass, we are being given more and more opportunities to decide on which side of the divide we stand – the side of the world, or the side of the Divine. I believe that September was the first apex of that decision-making on a soul level.
Our souls speak to us in many different ways, and they have many different instruments to use. Whether we like it or not, last month so many of us were being called to re-assess our relationships, our jobs, our health, our lifestyles, and, ultimately, our relationships with ourselves and with the Divine.
