We all tend to be terribly upset when blamed for something we haven’t done, or said. I have also found myself in situations of being blamed unfairly. This made me wonder… if everything happens for a reason, as many spiritual teachings suggest, then what is the lesson here?
My conclusion is that, perhaps, we can help ourselves by acknowledging the lesson in the unpleasant situation, as well as forgiving those who knew no better, in order to let them off the hook. Seeing things in this perspective can shift us to a place where we feel we’ve learned from the experience, and that we don’t need to attract the same pattern again. Read the rest of this entry »
What is spiritual serenity, and how does one get to such an enlightened place? I’ve put forth this question many times throughout my life, and I’ve also had it asked of me. People hear what I do for a living and they immediately assume I walk around chanting Buddhist chants, or waving sage throughout my sacred space 24 hours a day. If only!
I don’t have the answers any more than the next person does. There are some things I have learned and seen, as I am sure I have yet more to learn and see. It is an endless cycle of not knowing and then knowing, the same cycle we all go through. The same lessons. It is only in how we apply them that we become different. We grow differently and start to use parts of ourselves that perhaps someone else, who is growing ‘at their own pace’ may not be using yet. And that is okay. Read the rest of this entry »
The bonds with your Spiritual Council are strengthening and as each and every day passes they become stronger and stronger and within this strength lies your own strength, your own power, your own fearlessness. For when you remove fear from the equation of living your passion, anything is possible.
Simply imagine walls dissolving, barriers evaporating. You hold this much power within you. There is nothing outside of yourself that you need to accomplish anything that you desire. We cannot say this often enough. Read the rest of this entry »
Have you ever considered the fact that you always have a best friend around you – at all times, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week? You do! But you may not ever have thought that way. We have no reason to ever feel isolated or lonely.
I remember growing up never having a best friend. Or having one, but then losing that friend to other, more normal, interesting or sociable people. And then I always wound up feeling sad.
But all along I already had a best friend: the Divine Presence, the Universe, God. This presence manifests itself through people, places, things and events in our everyday lives. This is how we know it is there. Read the rest of this entry »
When I first began to converse with Spirit, I didn’t really know what I was doing. I was receiving these messages and listening to them, but I never really put much thought into it. It wasn’t until I consciously acknowledged this conversation was happening, that the momentum really started to build. It was then that I realized my guides had been with me all along!
In my experience, the most important step you can take in opening a conversation with Spirit, is to acknowledge that this is your intent. Your angels and guides are always with you – but they need your permission to help you! Remember to ask them often to be near you and to help you and guide you.
When you need direction, ask them for a sign. Then be patient and watchful. Spirit communicates in many ways, sometimes using number sequences, or animals, maybe a song you hear over and over again wherever you go. These are just a few examples, but Spirit will try to get your attention any way it can and will typically use signs and symbols that will be meaningful to you specifically. It’s important to be open to receiving these messages, and not to dismiss any ‘coincidences’ you may encounter. Read the rest of this entry »
As you absorb and align with the new consciousness, the new energy on your planet, you might be experiencing an array of emotions, feeling unbalanced, teetering between discourse and harmony. Part of what you are feeling is the collective consciousness breaking through.
There is some resistance within the collective and you are helping all to rise up. There is also some resistance within your own circle of influence. There are those that are moving with this transition easily, staying grounded in their light, but there are many who are feeling an influx of fear, feeling overwhelmed by the disharmony that the unknown brings.
All is well.
Whether you are picking up from energies outside of you, in the collective, in your circle of influence, or from the ethers, it does not interfere with your own ability to stay attuned and aligned within your own personal power. Read the rest of this entry »
As I began to approach my teen years, I became more eager to develop my intuitive abilities. It was important for me to start finding my purpose. I had become a part of this adolescent spiritual group, where kids from different cultures and religious backgrounds came together to find common ground.
On the last night of a camping retreat, we gathered around a large table with magazines and art materials surrounding us. Our teacher instructed us to put our vision on paper, so we could have a visual tool to motivate and inspire us for the future.
There was much laughter in the beginning, but then the room became more serious and quiet. Everyone began filling their paper with colorful images and commenting on how awesome the project was. In the final hour, we all went around the room and shared our vision boards with humor and emotion. Overall we learned that each one of us is unique and driven to make our imprint in this world.

Perfect alignment with the peace and harmony that are at the core of your being, eradicate fear completely. It is no longer necessary. There is no value. You are then instantly able to access your spiritual resources to navigate your life – always in a state of decisiveness, clarity and love. Move this instant knowingly into all that you do.
Let us focus on your career, your work, your job. Many of you are feeling disconnected, hopeless, or filled with despair, or not seeing the meaning in what you are doing, the value. This is energy from the collective consciousness. Let go of the fear of the planet and focus on your own love and joy. Infuse it into all that you do in your work. Do even the most mundane tasks with presence, with peace.
As you become aware of the inner critic, the incessant need to judge, and compare, and criticize, you release and let go of earthly attachments to the ego and you choose again. You choose to be the love that you are. You choose to lift the veil and reveal the truth. Read the rest of this entry »
