From the darkest places comes the brightest of light…” When I first read this statement on a piece of community art, on display at a Yoga festival, I was astounded. I stood still, with my Yoga mat strung over my shoulder, my water bottle in hand, and a plethora of memories racing through my mind.
That moment instantly brought back my traumatic, abusive childhood, and destructive youth. I had come from some very dark places, until I ended up morbidly obese, depressed and suicidal at 30 years of age. I had to change my life and slowly I began to choose what I sensed was good for me.

Many spiritual seekers are looking for some sort of evidence of past lives, or an afterlife. Many of us yearn for a way to recover from the spiritual amnesia that we are apparently born with. I believe we are born with clues into our past lives. These clues are so much a part of our daily lives, we simply overlook them.
Have you ever wondered where birthmarks come from? Or, if there is any link between birth defects and reincarnation? I’m not referring to the marks that are hereditary. I’m referring to those brown or red spots, also known as ‘strawberries’ or ‘angel kisses.’ These marks typically appear at birth. Some are located between the eyes, or on the neck, stomach or lower back, essentially anywhere. Read the rest of this entry »
Most spiritual seekers are aware of the more well-known Universal Laws, particularly the Law of Attraction. However, did you know there are several other spiritual laws that govern the Universe? Yes, there are! These laws can help you get the most out of life. In the previous blog in this series we explored the first six laws. Below are the final six Universal Laws.
The Law of Attraction
I must say that after learning about this amazing Law and applying it to my life (with the help of Rhonda Byrne’s brilliant book, The Secret) my very existence has radically changed. Simply by focusing on your desired outcome, with sufficient belief and passion, you should surely attract it to yourself. Read the rest of this entry »
Back in the Fall I posted a blog, titled Autumn Wishes, where I mentioned planting bulb, while wishing for a beautiful flower and praying for the fulfillment of a desire. At that time in October, it was my invitation for us to pause and notice the inexorable pull toward Winter Solstice. The days were growing incrementally shorter, ultimately culminating in the darkest day of the year.
But here we are now, and it is Spring again. Yes, it is the beautiful season of new beginnings, renewal and rebirth! Fresh buds are blooming, hibernating animals have been awakening and the earth seems to be coming to life again. Farmers and gardeners are now planting their future harvest, as temperatures slowly rise. Read the rest of this entry »
Do animals reincarnate? As an animal lover and pet owner, I believe they do!
John Edward, the well known psychic medium, once talked about how his dog had come to him in a dream after it passed. Apparently the dog told him he would be the new dog “with the black spot.” Soon after, John went to a friend’s house who had a litter of puppies. He really connected with one of the little dogs – it followed him around everywhere he went. However, none of the puppies had a black spot on them. John’s wife took pictures of him with the puppy, because she too felt the connection. Later they left, without taking any of the puppies. When the film was developed, there was a black mark on one of the photographs! The black stain appeared in the image over the puppy he had such a special connection with. John immediately went back and got his beloved ‘new’ dog. Read the rest of this entry »
In the northern hemisphere the Spring season is now heralding warmer weather and new growth after a long, dark winter. With the blossoms that bring the promise of luscious foliage come the thoughts of new beginnings and infinite possibilities.
Every day you have the opportunity to create your own personal Spring. Yesterday has passed and tomorrow is but a thought. Today counts. This is the day over which you can have some control. This is the day wherein you can make commitments, keep promises and deliver expected results. Today is the day that you can help one another toward success. Today is the day that you can promote love and healing. Today is the day to listen, express empathy and support others. Today is the day you can be true to yourself. Today is the day wherein love triumphs. Read the rest of this entry »
Growing up as a Roman Catholic, I experienced Lent as a strong discipline to better my life. “What are you giving up for Lent?” The answers from my non-believer friends were “homework” or “obey the parents” or “saving money for rainy days.” Lent is one of those practices demanded of Roman Catholics to which non-Catholic believers may say, “Another great reason to be Protestant!” It never really occurred to my friends that Lent was something interesting, or beneficial, to a better understand our connection with God.
One day, I sat thinking of the many reason and faces of this season, and upon doing some research I discovered that Lent is in fact also recognized by millions of Protestant Christians, in addition to Catholic and Orthodox believers. The Eastern Orthodox Lent is longer than the Catholic or Protestant Lent, and it begins before Ash Wednesday. Read the rest of this entry »
Recent events in my life have led me to deep lessons of inner strength, patience, wisdom, and of course love. A very dear friend, whom I love with all my heart, has been going through an extremely tough time. This friend’s recent outbursts and meltdowns have, however, affected me personally in a very negative way – to the extent that I now feel I can no longer be around this person.
The negative energy and thought processes my friend carries is something I am picking up psychically more so than ever. I have had to shield myself frequently from this person. It is not to say I am leading my friend in the dust, but I must admit my well-being and welfare need to come first. Read the rest of this entry »
