To become more, to expand, and to seek more complete expression is inherent in our human condition, because it is an innate quality we possess due to our original spiritual nature. ‘Increasing’ or ‘becoming’ is what drives the expansion of the entire Conscious Universe.
We are each of us a mirror reflection of the Universal Source; we are created in the image of the Divine. We are a perfect imprint of the magnificent Holographic Web of Consciousness. And because we are spiritual beings who reflect the Divine in physical form, we also possess the innate qualities of Divinity. We are self-aware and conscious; we have the capacity for reason, sentience, imagination and creative thought; we command creative freedom and the metaphysical power to manifest; and we have the capacity for complete self-actualization, individuation and transcendence. All these qualities are the expression of our inner Divinity, a direct reflection and extension of the Higher Self. Read the rest of this entry »
This is a letter to my daughter – if I had one, that is. But I don’t. So, this letter is to her, the daughter I might have had, and also to those young ladies I have known over the years who I have felt were like daughters to me.
My daughter’s name would have been Chantal-Marie, should she have been born. I suppose I could have had her, but life took its course and time slipped away. I was too busy mothering myself, I think, and I couldn’t have mothered her, in retrospect. But hindsight isn’t always 20:20 – don’t let anyone fool you.
So here goes. Strangely enough, I feel as though I were on the edge of a precipice as I write this. It is a most unexpected feeling. Read the rest of this entry »
As a visual artist I have always been fascinated by the imagery on traditional Tarot cards. My first Rider-Waite Tarot deck felt so solid – 78 cards in a one-inch stack. They were thin, but sturdy and smooth so it was easy to shuffle them. Over time a Tarot deck picks up energy and can grow in thickness to two inches or more.
The earliest appearance of the cards arguably occurred in the 14th Century as playing cards. The symbolism had to be kept secret, because doctrines outside of church law were prohibited.
From the first time I used them my intuition immediately pinged on different energies when I looked at each one of the cards: optimism, excitement, balance. It was a spontaneous, deep spiritual energy coming from my core to consciousness. I used this method of relating to the cards long before I bought any guidebooks. Read the rest of this entry »
Time, as we know it, is an incredible thing. It heals all wounds, it mends fences, faces and most cuts and scrapes and bruises. It helps marinate things to a tastier level than previous. Time is also money. The list is endless.
I watched a movie the other day, In Time with Justin Timberlake. What a trip that movie was! The basic premise is that time is the only currency. A person is given 25 years to live, and then after that their own personal ‘time clock’ on their wrists starts to tick-tock away. There is no money – everything is bought and paid for ‘in time’.
What would you do if you had all the time in the world? It made me ponder, and it made me look to the past and go around times in my life where I thought for sure this was ‘it’. Although, in retrospect I’m not entirely sure what ‘it’ even was. I certainly never knew it, even when it was right there in my face! Read the rest of this entry »
Awakening, reconnecting and realigning with the Divine Self is no doubt the most important first step in personal spiritual growth, individuation and ultimate transcendence. To rediscover your Higher Self and tap into your Higher Consciousness is usually a very awe-inspiring and life-changing experience. But your new found spiritual awareness and rediscovered Divine origins may soon lose its power to transform your life if you do not adopt a new lifestyle that includes some kind of consistent spiritual practice.
Divine Living and spiritual practice goes hand in hand. A Divine Life is impossible to achieve without some form of regular spiritual practice, in order to increase and maintain your connection and alignment with the Divine Self. What you come to know and believe about your own spiritual origins is meaningless, unless you have a direct and personal daily experience of receiving guidance from your inner Divinity. The only way to achieve this is to practice your new awareness and beliefs on a daily basis. Read the rest of this entry »
Can you imagine how wretched you would feel if you kept trying to wear a pair of shoes at age 30 that fit you when you were 6? The pain would be unimaginable, excruciating and intense. You would cripple yourself and in all likelihood be unable to walk, be unable to move.
But you wouldn’t do that, right? That doesn’t make any sense, you say. Well, of course it doesn’t make any sense. And of course you’d never try to do that, because they wouldn’t fit you anymore!
At certain times in our lives it becomes really important to acknowledge that something or someone just doesn’t fit us anymore.
Is a person any different from a pair of shoes in this context? Of course not. Yet so often we keep on trying to make a person fit into our lives. We bend ourselves out of shape, trying so hard to make this person fit, when in fact their time, just like the old pair of shoes, has by now long come and gone. Read the rest of this entry »
There is quite a lot to know about interpreting dreams. And there are many schools of thought on this subject from psychoanalysis to shamanic journey dream vision quests. A person could spend a great deal of time in a class room environment studying dream interpretation. Researching this topic could become a lifelong hobby as well.
For years I have been curious about interpreting my own dreams and have read many books about it and have also spent a lot of time researching this subject on line. I prefer the less complex methods of unlocking the mysteries of dreaming and will share with you what I have learned about basic analysis of what dreams mean and how to interpret them for ourselves.

I find myself advising my clients to play more in order to move themselves out of feeling ’stuck’ in their lives. I especially recommend this to people who are having serious financial issues because it lightens the load and it is usually either free or not very expensive to be playful. I also recommend this to couples who are not getting along because they usually are not having fun with each other anymore. This is not meant to be a simplistic remedy for complex issues. Advising people to remember to play is just one of the ways to get people back into the flow of life and out of the ruts we all fall into.
There are many ways to play that cost nothing. For example, if you live near a body of water you can skip stones and see if you can keep beating your own distance record. If you live near the woods you can collect wild flowers and place them between book pages in plastic to dry them and flatten them – they make wonderful book marks. Take your shoes off and wade in the water or mud. Read the rest of this entry »
