We have officially entered Springtime and the winds of change are blowing in. Along with change comes new beginnings, and with new beginnings comes excitement, trepidation, and often times fear. We may be thinking about the many potential opportunities a new beginning brings, but, also may worry about any challenges or obstacles the future may hold.
During the winter months you spent time going within, both physically from the colder weather, and spiritually, to connect with your soul. Without even knowing, you instinctively entered the cave of your inner guru to get quiet so that you could nurture and cultivate something very precious inside of you that is about to be birthed this Spring.

The ‘Higher Self’ is a term associated with multiple belief systems, but the basic premise describes an eternal, omnipotent, conscious, and an intelligent being, who is one’s real self. We are after all spiritual beings having a human experience.
Helena Blavatsky, the famous spirit medium and co-founder of the Theosophical Society, formally defined the higher self as ‘Atma – the inseparable ray of the Universe and one self.’
It is important to discern the higher self from ego. The higher self is concerned with your spiritual development and the choices you make that align with your true spiritual self. I personally like to think of my higher self as my soul’s GPS – always giving me the right direction in life on the earth plane. Read the rest of this entry »
I wanted to set an intention for my evening meditation. I wanted to connect with my higher consciousness, and maybe even connect with my grandfather. I wanted to ask questions about death and what happens to our souls and consciousness. What do we perceive after we die?
After my meditation I took down some notes on things I wanted to share that I felt was important information. Before going to sleep I also set the intention to visit with my spirit guides to retrieve and receive any other information that could help shed some light on our life after death.
This is what I came up with. Read the rest of this entry »
The easiest way to define how they operate is to look at the soul as the essence of who you are. In other words, the soul is your ‘home,’ while the spirit is the circumstances that help shape your life, like a ‘neighborhood’ where you reside.
Our soul path is the gifts and talents that we come in with and make use of. Our spiritual path is the given set of circumstances that provide us with growth, learning and movement forward, towards our sense of awareness.
Let us examine an example to assist with the clarification. A young soul may enter this domain, take on a masculine energy and from his very early days may have plans to become a doctor. This will be the essence of his soul path. Read the rest of this entry »
A soulmate is often defined as the individual that we can completely resonate with, that we can truly love and that they truly love us back unconditionally. In reality, however, due to our humanness, this may not always be possible and then we may become obsessed with the search for a soulmate. In that search sadly we often miss truly wondrous opportunities to connect with love in the most unusual or unexpected places. Read the rest of this entry »
Peace is only attainable from within. Many souls go through life chasing what they think is the elusive dream of peace. They are searching outside themselves for things or people that will bring calm and balance into their lives.
Stop, look inside, there is no person and no material object that will bring you the peace which you seek. Take some time to understand that if you have a discontented soul, no outside source will heal that wound. It has taken me years to understand this concept myself. Empaths have an especially hard time reconciling with the outside world – feeling deeply can be both a super power and ones Achilles heel.
Healing your soul and becoming at peace with yourself is the most important journey you will ever embark on. It means being honest with yourself and not trying to be with or agree with others, when your very own soul is screaming no. Listen, release, accept, and be. Read the rest of this entry »
The energy that is moving through now is about strength, courage and conviction. Standing in your power never felt so good. There is no more guilt, no more ‘should haves.’ Only receiving of the inspiration you’ve asked for, and Divine execution.
Love is your middle name, or your first, if you are truly ready to rise up and glow. For choosing to glow means action and assertion. No more playing small. The world needs your gifts and they need them now, or yesterday actually. There is an urgency to our message today, as we cannot say it strongly and loudly enough. The time is now.

The ego is an identity that we have created based on experiences, thoughts and ideas we have formed. It is the thing we describe when someone asks us about ourselves. However, it is a false identity covering our true center – our Soul Self.
The ego is built upon past experiences. Its very foundation is steeped in emotional actions and reactions, and is comprised of beliefs about our self. Some of these beliefs we have accepted, while others are rejected. We have been forming and sculpting this false self since early childhood.
If we listed our beliefs about who we think we are, we would have the structure of the ego. The ego is our personality, achievements and abilities – or lack thereof. Although these achievements, abilities and gifts appear to be a part of the ‘self’ they are only characteristics of our personality – they are not our True Self. The ego is a construct of the mind. It is the false or artificial self. Read the rest of this entry »
