What is spiritual serenity, and how does one get to such an enlightened place? I’ve put forth this question many times throughout my life, and I’ve also had it asked of me. People hear what I do for a living and they immediately assume I walk around chanting Buddhist chants, or waving sage throughout my sacred space 24 hours a day. If only!
I don’t have the answers any more than the next person does. There are some things I have learned and seen, as I am sure I have yet more to learn and see. It is an endless cycle of not knowing and then knowing, the same cycle we all go through. The same lessons. It is only in how we apply them that we become different. We grow differently and start to use parts of ourselves that perhaps someone else, who is growing ‘at their own pace’ may not be using yet. And that is okay. Read the rest of this entry »
Perfect alignment with the peace and harmony that are at the core of your being, eradicate fear completely. It is no longer necessary. There is no value. You are then instantly able to access your spiritual resources to navigate your life – always in a state of decisiveness, clarity and love. Move this instant knowingly into all that you do.
Let us focus on your career, your work, your job. Many of you are feeling disconnected, hopeless, or filled with despair, or not seeing the meaning in what you are doing, the value. This is energy from the collective consciousness. Let go of the fear of the planet and focus on your own love and joy. Infuse it into all that you do in your work. Do even the most mundane tasks with presence, with peace.
As you become aware of the inner critic, the incessant need to judge, and compare, and criticize, you release and let go of earthly attachments to the ego and you choose again. You choose to be the love that you are. You choose to lift the veil and reveal the truth. Read the rest of this entry »
I thought today of how certain expressions tend to stick in our minds; thoughts which we adopt for a while, or even a lifetime. It can be the words of a famous writer we have read somewhere, an expression in a song, or even just the ideas of somebody we just had a brief conversation with.
Internationally renowned author and speaker, Wayne Dyer, once said, “You will never get everything done.” It’s a good feeling at the end of the day, to know that we’ve gotten through much on our ‘to-do list.’ But for me, I also gain some comfort from such as words of wisdom as Wayne Dyer’s, as well as the poem, Desiderata, which advises us to, “Go placidly amid the noise and the haste.” Read the rest of this entry »
If you’ve been feeling stuck, depressed, or just in need of change, tap into the power of Feng Shui. This ancient Chinese art, of arranging the home for maximum energetic potential, is easier than you think to apply in your everyday life.
The best way to start is to create routines and rituals for yourself. Everything in the natural world exists according to a series of daily patterns or routines, and we are no different! Take time each day to meditate, incorporate gentle physical activity such as a walk or yoga, sit down and eat mindfully at each meal. It’s also crucial to create a sacred space to escape from the stresses and sensory input of the modern world.
Are you the kind of person who finds it difficult to start things? Make a dream board filled with visual representations of your hopes, dreams, and aspirations, then place it where you can see it multiple times a day. Read the rest of this entry »
When people call for a psychic reading, they sometimes forget that they have the power to change their lives. They tend to believe that everything has been established, or things are fated. But that’s not necessarily true.
I don’t believe that everything is fated. If our lives are fated, then one doesn’t actually need to do anything other than sit and wait for things to happen. Many things in our lives simply cannot occur without our consent.
For example, you cannot get drunk without ingesting alcohol. It is never ‘fate’ that someone becomes drunk and hung over. Similarly, we can reason that many things occur in conjunction with our personal effort. Our fate is in our power. I believe that we have a lot to do with creating what is and the circumstances in our lives. Read the rest of this entry »
“You really don’t seem to live in one place for more than five minutes,” said my cousin in her strong Liverpool accent. These words still echo in my mind from decades ago, when my parents and I spent a couple of years in Liverpool, United Kingdom. Soon after we were moving again! I have continued this way of life in my adulthood, moving to several different countries, and even other continents.
Perhaps I get my restless spirit from my father, typical Sagittarius that he was, just like I inherited his tendency toward alcohol addiction. A lot of moving around is not meant to be harmonious for a Cancerian female, like myself, but I recall a friend of mine compiling my Astrological chart a long time ago, saying that a strong Gemini influence in my chart was the cause of this. I am no specialist in Astrology, but find it fascinating nonetheless. Read the rest of this entry »
Hope is a representative of our dreams. Hope is what keeps us going when the going gets tough. We are subjects of hope, if we allow it. So, allow hope to rule your mind. Dream a little. Allow hope to infiltrate the many ways you wish for improvement and change. Have hope that you become the you that you wish to be.
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, “Hope is a belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in one’s life. Hope is the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best.”
When impatience takes over in your life, things become off-kilter. That’s when relationships break apart; jobs become unsettling, or they become impossible to find; money starts to dissipate. And all these things just cause more impatience, and more frustration.
When I tell you that someone will come into your life in Divine timing, it simply means that when you are able to be patient and let go of the edginess, the Universe will open the door an allow something or someone better to come into your life at the right time. This is all done on Divine timing – not yours, or mine. Read the rest of this entry »
