I recently heard someone say he was a passenger on “the train of life” and what immediately came to mind was what a glorious opportunity we have to evaluate our own particular role in coming into this existence.
So, let us start at the beginning. First of all we would need the individual who came up with the concept of a train, no more traveling long or short distances by foot or horseback or car, embark on your journey in comfort and ease, knowing there is someone who will endeavor to get you safely to your destination while you sit back and relax.
What manner of being would even venture to come up with such a plan? That would have to be the dreamers, or visionaries. They are the ones who often have their heads in the clouds and envision a better quality of life for us all. There is an abstract thought somewhere inside of them that must find a way of arriving at a viable workable plan. Read the rest of this entry »
Recently, during a psychic reading, someone asked me what their “gift” was. When asked why the person wanted to know this, their response was, “Because I don’t want to study or work on something, unless I know I am going to succeed and be good at it.”
My jaw dropped. That is like saying, I will only get married if there is a guarantee that it will last forever, with no mention of love. Even if you have a so-called ‘gift,’ it doesn’t mean you will be successful at it in earth plane terms. Jesus, Buddha, and so many other spiritual teachers, did not become rich and famous, in their lifetimes. They used their talents, gifts, and lives, for the greater good, because they believed in what they were doing. Read the rest of this entry »
Some people become great inventors, physicians, leaders, politicians or investors, among many other noble professions. They can measure their legacies easily from the many lives they have touched with their work. Often their identities are household names and the entire world is familiar with their efforts.
But what about those of you who are living day-to-day, doing the best you can to keep your life in balance, your children educated and your mortgage or rent paid? What kind of legacy do you envision for your own family and for the world in which you live? Read the rest of this entry »
The first step we need to take when we are doing deep spiritual work is to face ourselves. In mythology there is a story of a monster that dwells on the border between the physical and the spiritual worlds. In order to reach higher realms, we must face and conquer this monster.
Facing ourselves takes a lot of courage. Facing ourselves means that we stop blaming others and take responsibility for our own actions. It can also involve taking responsibility for the actions of others, by accepting responsibility for simply participating in certain circumstances through thought, word, action and feeling. It also has a tendency to annoy us, or make us very uncomfortable. That’s the price of spiritual growth and freedom. Letting go. I talk about this a lot in psychic readings about romance.

Since I was a very young child, I always believed I would become a teacher and held on to that belief until I was somewhere in my late 20s. It came as a complete surprise to me to discover that this was not where my life purpose was heading. It is so easy to see where misinterpretations occur as one tends to look back.
Teachers commonly resonate with the color brown. They are usually, calm, dedicated, certainly prepared for the unexpected, as this is sure to happen occasionally when dealing with children of any age.
Teachers and instructors are most often also the ones who will donate extra time and energy to outside causes and have a general concern for what is happening in their environment. Good teachers usually volunteer to assist with extracurricular activities and do not anticipate a payback relating to their time and energy. Read the rest of this entry »
Those things that you might view as imperfections or flaws in your physical make-up are all by design. Who you are is no accident.
It is like a beautiful piece of art and the artist is chiselling out the design. Within the piece of wood or stone that the artist is working on, lies magnificence and glory. The artist works day by day, carving out his design with patience, with trust, and the artist steps back in awe as the magnificence is finally revealed.
You are much like such a piece of artwork that has yet to be discovered, yet to be revealed. So, trust and know that there are no flaws, there are no imperfections. Things you do or don’t do, things you say or don’t say are all by design. You created a beautiful contract before you came into this physical being. Read the rest of this entry »
Love is not easy. Whether it be loving yourself, loving another, loving your neighbor, your country. Yet, love is also not difficult to indulge yourself in. At any age we can love, we simply need to choose it over everything else.
Do you remember as a child how easily we loved our friends, our parents, siblings, and pets. I had a cousin who was absolutely in love with her little Red Wagon, that classic toy cart produced by the American company Radio Flyer. She would load this metal contraption with her pillows and blankets, climb in, and hug it. She animated an inanimate object, and projected emotion and much love into her red wagon. She loved her wagon and brought it to life. Silly? Not really. People love their cars, clothes, purses, shoes, and ego-driven identities… so, why not love a red toy wagon?

Color therapy is a well-established practice when it comes to putting right what could be wrong in our lives – be it emotional or physical. The ways in which we can make use of color are broad and varied.
For example, we can wear color in our clothes and jewelry, burn gorgeous colored candles, cook beautifully colored foods, work with color while meditating and even bathe in color when we so wish.
Color therapy can also be beneficially applied in our romantic life. So, whether your are single or in a relationship, why not consider applying a little color therapy magic to your romantic life?
Maybe you currently feel you are never going to meet your soulmate. Are you afraid of history repeating itself and think that you may never, ever find ‘the one?’ Or maybe you feel you may have found your soulmate, but you are not exactly sure about this. Or maybe you would just like more passion and commitment in your life? Color therapy could play a significant part in bringing your romantic hopes and desires to fruition.
