Wherein we have the natural places in which we sequester our spirits – in sundry spaces such as temples or churches; within the bowers of our trees in nature, within our souls when there is no place to hide; in the suns open glare in the open deserts; or in the cold stare of the crowd – there you will still find the deep sequestered self of your soul. It is your own, not to be shared, never to be sold.
Even if one is not able to, for whatever reason, express one’s faith or reason within a world that is unreasonable, to not only a god, but perhaps one’s idea of it, whether it be of art, of love, or science, there within the sequestered self, there resides the natural spirit.
When you feel there is no place wherein you find a place to whisper your deepest prayer or desire, or your sweetest secrets or confessions to your God, where you feel there should be no man who can intervene, there should be a place where you can find a place of solace, where you can express your spiritual self and inclinations, deep within your mind.

The Law of Uniqueness
Yes, you really are one of a kind. From your DNA to your personality traits, individual experiences and life skills, they are all unique to yourself. To develop understanding and empathy for other individuals, this law requires us to recognize their special uniqueness.
The above said, you, me and everyone else on the planet is made from the very same ingredients, i.e. sulphur, iron and carbon, and so on, which the stars themselves also consist of. Therefore, we are all star material in our own right! Read the rest of this entry »
Have you ever noticed that whenever you really enjoy what you’re doing, it’s as though there seems to be an energy flow or undercurrent carrying you? Don’t you wish you could live this way all the time?
Unfortunately, it seems too often we fall prey to worrying about what others might think of us, or we choose the practical path or the road most traveled. We get caught in the trap of following the opinions of others, rather than tuning in and listening to our own inner guidance.
When you follow the flow of what is true for you, it doesn’t mean you are shirking your responsibilities. It also doesn’t mean you are being selfish. It simply means you are choosing moment to moment what feels right. We are influenced every day by society’s standards of what’s right, and we seldom do a self check-in instead.

Black Panther has the gift of shape shifting. The Black Panther is a leopard or jaguar. Just as you must get close to a person with this animal for a totem, you must get very close to see the variations in color or spots of the Black Panther.
With people that carry this energy, it may be difficult to get close to them as they do not reveal much of themselves to others. They are loners and usually connect with other loners.
Panthers are swift and graceful. They move swiftly. People with this energy may make decisions quickly and they may have no trouble making spur of the moment choices. However, a panther can’t maintain such swift speed. Read the rest of this entry »

I love plants and enjoy sharing space with them. I several in my home and take very good care of them. I’m mindful to water them around the same time every week and I even talk to them. In many ways, I look at them as my friends.
I live in a home that doesn’t get much sunshine, so I have selected plants that require low light. While they never receive any direct sunlight, they are thriving like champs and are healthy and happy.
Plants are much like people in that sense. Some of us require a lot of people around us to be happy, the same way some plants need lots of sunshine. But some of us require lots of quiet, alone time, like some plants prefer the shade. We all recharge and thrive in different ways. Read the rest of this entry »
Remember when you were a child and you couldn’t wait for the new day to come, so that you could begin again exploring, learning, experiencing so many new and joyful things?
As you get out of bed and firmly plant your feet on the floor, feel the change in your energy. Instead of dreading the million and one things you are to do for today, choose to be joyous, free and excited to begin again.
This past year has been the best! It is amazing to see what happens when we live with eyes and heart wide open. We experience more synchronicity, calmness, joy, and peace. We go from go, go, go, and do, do, do, to being fully present.
We too often choose to ignore the little voice inside that tells us things like, “Don’t go out, stay in!” or “Don’t do that, do this instead.” That inner voice is what most people call your intuition or inner guidance. I think of it as God within.
When we are clear-headed and keep from chaos and drama, and set healthy boundaries with others, we actually can hear that voice much more clearly. Read the rest of this entry »
