In today’s society people often view acceptance as resignation, giving up, cowardice, retreat, or other unappealing descriptive words. The society that worships, praises, and publicizes Yang energy, the energy of ‘doing,’ typically has little understanding for the power of Yin. Yin energy imagines, envisions, perceives. Yang manifests. We need both.
Yin is a warrior’s path. It is the path of acceptance, before reaction. As an example, the martial art Aikido is defined as a way of unifying with life energy or “moving Zen,” or as “the Way of harmonious spirit.” Aikido is an art that practitioners use to defend themselves, while also protecting their attacker from injury.

The moon may have a somewhat modest appearance, but it has a strong influence, both physically and mentally, on us human beings. When the Moon is full, some people tend to experience poor sleep, for example, and children may be noisier than usual.
The Moon is a feminine energy and therefore she hides, shines, waxes and wanes, and we all sense her influence, be that on a conscious or an unconscious level. But one can dance to the tune of the Moon and so experience all the energy and harmony it can bring.
So, how exactly does the Moon have the effect that it does? Read the rest of this entry »
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 »
It is okay to say no. As a matter of fact, it is imperative to learn to say no, and stick with it. We observe that many of you try to be all things to all people. You run yourselves ragged, physically and emotionally, trying to please other people.
You put others ahead of yourselves and then become frustrated and angry when you have no time left for your own personal lives. This is exhausting, stressful and becomes completely unrealistic over time.
The challenge in setting healthy personal boundaries often arises when it becomes difficult to prioritize your own needs and desires against the expectations of others. Since when do these people rule your roost? Since when are their expectations more valid or important than your own peace of mind, ideas or schedules? Why do you give them such power over your dreams, goals, ambitions and life? Read the rest of this entry »
Your energy is best spent this week turning inward to hear the voice of your soul. You have some big decisions to make (or little, regardless) and this is not the time to run headlong into anything, throwing caution to the wind.
This is the time to take a deep breath, step back and consider all of your options. Take the time to do your research and spend time in meditation and prayer asking for guidance from your Spiritual Council. When you take these steps before you make any decision in your life, you will be leading from your soul instead of your ego, and all of your life experiences will become aligned with your Divine life mission.
Many of you walk around dazed and confused crying, “Oh, I don’t know what to do!” This is because you do not take the time to slow down and tune in. You are mesmerized by the fast-paced, stressed out life of being a human. And as you stay caught up in this daze you will continue to draw to you experiences that are endlessly frustrating, annoying and less than satisfying. Read the rest of this entry »

I remember when first I came into contact with Apache Tears, a kind of Obsidian, when I was just a child. I loved it! Its translucent quality was captivating. At the time I did not know the metaphysical properties of this stone; all I knew was that it had a dream-like quality to it.
Obsidian is molten lava that has cooled very quickly. It is a type of volcanic glass and it is found worldwide. The ancient Aztecs made flat mirrors from Obsidian for use in divination. Obsidian may open a person to the gift of prophecy. Legend has it that Dr. Dee, a great mage and alchemist, hired by Queen Elizabeth I, may have used an Obsidian mirror in lessons of scrying.

Imagine for a moment that you have a radio, and instead of tuning in to a single stations, all of the stations are playing at once. That’s what life sometimes feels like to a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) – a designation coined by psychologist Dr. Elaine Aron, which indicates someone whose senses are more attuned than normal to the stimuli around them. The word “empath” is sometimes used to describe highly sensitive people, and other groups, such as those on the autism spectrum.
Aside from sealing themselves in soundproof rooms, or wrapping up in padded clothing, what can they do in a world which sometimes delivers sensory overload? It’s best for the HSP to avoid certain things and situations. Read the rest of this entry »
