What I have found of late is that, in this new found age of authentic expression, there is less naive sympathy and simplistic expression. Everything has become very complicated. Even relationships of two’s have become gamed.
Now in sympathy of couples that do love each other, we need to go back to the basics of not morality, but of what makes us not human, but of one world. One world being not just humane, not just human, but also expert communicators, not of strategy, but of love. Not with a start or an end game, not with the result of being able to outwit one another, but without the expectation of anything, but with the simplicity to exist just within being.
The simplicity to exist is simply thus; in just being able to breathe in the fresh air. In being able to simply not outlive the other. In simply being able to remain still and outwit the other, to be the self. 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 »
What does it mean to ‘pay it forward’ from a spiritual perspective? On a simple level, paying it forward means we take a gift of kindness and pass it along to the next recipient, almost like a karma chain. We’ve all probably experienced such a gift, whether it was a cup of coffee, or a new car. But why do it in the first place? We’re all told that humanity is selfish, not selfless.
If we look at paying it forward beyond the superficial ‘it feels good,’ we see that it really does make us feel better on a physical and psychological level. Stress and depression rates are much lower for those who regularly volunteer, or perform acts of charity and kindness. Our brain experiences a ‘happiness boost’ almost immediately. Life expectancy is also higher for those who volunteer, compared to people who don’t. Doing selfless things simply does make us feel good. Read the rest of this entry »
Many years ago I had the blessed experience to work with a Native American shaman. I had to travel deep into a canyon in Arizona. This particular canyon cannot be accessed without a tribal member as escort. I was picked up in a jeep and whisked off to an area surrounded with red rock cradled in Aspen trees.
The canyon cliffs shot up hundreds of feet into the sky, eagles flew overhead, trees whispered the message of the wind, and streams of clear water bubbled over the river rock.
Amidst the beauty of this place there was also great poverty. Children stood in the streams selling beads and various artifacts made from the surrounding nature. Packs of wild dogs ran wild, seeking food. I had one thing on my mind: enlightenment. Yet, I was disturbed by what I saw around me. Read the rest of this entry »
It is also very close to another age-old axiom, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Again, this sounds easy enough. And what if you are one of those people, as many of us are, who are not in the habit of treating yourself very well at all?
How do you typically treat yourself? Do you like yourself? Do you love yourself? Do you approve, care, and not judge yourself harshly? Are you kind and encouraging to yourself? Or is your internal mental chatter and expression riddled with thoughts like: Read the rest of this entry »
The next wave has moved through and is now beginning to settle around you. Structures are beginning to collapse and break down. Structures that lack integrity, honor and justice. So, even though it might look chaotic, trust and know that there is a higher order taking over.
You are needed now. Step into your power as a lightworker, because whether you realize it or not, you are assisting in this new, higher order that is being created.
As the energy on this planet continues this process of transformation you may begin to feel differently in your physical human body. Some of you are experiencing feelings of heaviness, or being in ‘sludge.’
You might teeter totter between that feeling of non-doing and simply wanting to be, with no agenda and a feeling of lightness, as if you are floating freely. It may be difficult to concentrate, whether it’s reading a book or engaging in conversation with others. This lack of focus is simply a symptom that your body is trying to assimilate the new energy that we have brought. Read the rest of this entry »
As you are on this spiritual journey, and as you are bathing in the New Earth energy, you will find that you are becoming more and more aware of all of the energies that surround the planet. There are many, many light energies, but there are also dark energies. These are nothing to be afraid of, they gain their power from your fear. Imagine your fear dissolving now and standing in love and the truth of your magnificence.
As you become aware of all of the energy that surrounds you, it might trigger different emotions and different feelings. Some of those emotions and feelings will be pleasant and positive. That’s when you can be assured that you are connecting and tuning in with the light energy, the beautiful angels, the master teachers, your loved ones who are here to assist you… your Spiritual Counsel that guides and guards you always.

There is no end to learning for humanity. There is no one, really, who ‘knows it all.’ We are meant to keep on learning; there really is no limit or ceiling on how much there is for us to learn. We are always advancing. This is the whole purpose of our universal lives.
No matter how hard we work in this life, there almost always seems to be something missing… something we tried to reach for, but just seems to be out of our grasp. Maybe we tried a few times, but were disappointed, and eventually gave up. Then maybe we became depressed about this. It is a normal emotional reaction to become depressed, but it really doesn’t do us any good to give in to negative emotion. Read the rest of this entry »
