Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) is recognized as the most documented psychic medium of 20th Century. Also known as “The Sleeping Prophet” he would enter a trance state of altered consciousness, to answer questions about diverse subjects, ranging from medical issues and holistic health, to past lives and philosophy. The majority of his channeled readings were recorded, numbered and archived.
Cayce’s life’s work is preserved and continued through the Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E) founded circa 1931. My last visit there was 20 years ago and I recall being told by a curator, “Spirit is the life, mind is the builder, and the physical is the result.”
When I pressed her about what she meant, she replied, ”Last week I knew my husband’s truck would break down. Not because it had been problematic, I just knew. Sure enough, it broke down on the way to work. It was just a thought I had before he left the house. I told him after the fact, now he thinks I’m crazy. But I can’t explain it. I just knew.”
This isn’t the first time I have had this kind of conversation with someone. I encouraged her to have faith in her premonitions, and the only way to do that is to write them down, and check them off as they manifest. This particular exercise is wonderful in that you get confirmation, not to mention lists like this make it apparent that is not an odd occurrence, but rather normal, for you.

First of all, what happens to this suitcase? Do we open it ourselves, wait for someone to come along and give us the combination that will release the contents, or perhaps we might just set it aside for future use?
Even if we undertake to open it immediately, does this secure our position? Allow me to give you a couple of examples in order that you might grasp how this all can work either for us, or against us. Read the rest of this entry »
Our society has successfully stripped itself of most of its metaphysical marvels. Yet, magic prevails everywhere for those who still seek to find it. Despite our cynical age of scientific skepticism, techno-futurism and neo-draconian politics, the mystical and miraculous continues to endure in the hearts and minds of those who choose to believe.
I have seen evidence of this everyday magic in my work with many people all over the world, as well as upon many of my travels. I have known it in the devoted spiritual practices and manifesting projects of my clients. I have observed it in the heroic metaphysical endeavors and healing miracles of my colleagues. And I have even witnessed it at almost every birthday party I have ever attended. Yes, most of us have at some point in our lives whispered a silent wish over the candles on a cake!

Our mind is our own worst enemy but it can also be our best friend, if we let it. Understanding simple concepts of universal truths can go a long way towards our mind knowing these truths and accepting them as fact into our world.
One of the biggest universal lies is that happiness is a permanent state of being or, worse yet, that everything has to be perfect for you to be happy. That’s a lie. The simple, universal truth is much easier and also much more freeing. Happiness comes in moments, happiness is where you are right now, with exactly what you have. Read the rest of this entry »
Many of us work hard on our personal evolution, self-awareness, and spiritual growth. Sometimes this takes us down the trail of intense self-criticism, often leading to disparaging thoughts that we will never get ‘better’ or be ‘good enough.’ I have traveled down this dark trail many times myself.
In addition to this being a very cruel way to treat yourself, this radioactive attitude leaks out into other relationships in our life. Even if it does not manifest in overt ways, we all know energy travels, and energy travels all the time. Self-hatred cannot be contained; it changes the orbits of our electrons.

In his allegory Plato describes a dimly lit cave in which a group of prisoners are chained to a wall, completely immobilized. The cave represents the sensory human mind. When we believe that knowledge is what we see, taste, touch, smell and feel, we are trapped in a cave of misunderstanding. We are the prisoners.
The prisoners know no other reality other than the wall in front of them which has projections of shadow images. Its appearance resembles puppetry, as the shadows are created by people walking on a walkway carrying things on their head. These images are actually cast by the light of a fire behind them. The shadows are our perceptions that have been created from our limited experiences. These shadows are in some way representative of what we believe to be truth. What we see, we believe is real and true, however, what we are seeing is merely a shadow of truth. Read the rest of this entry »
We can only evolve our awareness and experience of life through free thinking. Without it no advancement can be made in any field of thought. We would simply be stuck in the previous set of ideals and ideologies and perpetuating the experiences of the past. When we stay in these mindsets we give our power away to the past.
Albert Einstein once said, “Problems cannot be solved by the level of awareness that created them.” It is our freedom of thought that allows us to expand not only on the level of thought, but on the level of form as well.
I believe we live in an infinite universe that is constantly expanding. This is true cosmologically, but also experientially as human thought and consciousness progresses. Form is simply a result of this expansion. Read the rest of this entry »
