4 Spiritual Lessons for Finding a Path Through Loneliness

dcole8.1.21

As human beings we are all vulnerable to loneliness, especially during periods of grief. We want to feel safe, protected, and not alone, yet a sense of loneliness is quite easy for us to access. We may feel alone in our bodies, in our homes, or alone in the world. So how do we find our way through loneliness?

In my work as a teacher and spirit translator, I came to realize that in order to move through my own loneliness, I had to acquire a deep understanding of the pain that other people go through. It might seem as though connecting with other people’s pain would intensify my own, but on the contrary, it helped me to release my loneliness. Through physical and emotional pain, I was able to understand the suffering of others, and that profound empathy tied us together. It granted me the safety and protection that I wanted. If you feel this way, you are not alone!

Optimizing Our Experience

pdblog7.29

Everything is moving us to optimize our experience in being a human being. 

Optimizing our experience means you have to get in touch with what you need to figure out inside of you, getting in touch with what resonates with you and with what no longer resonates with you. For example, you don’t have to accept every invitation and go to everything everybody else is doing when you already know it’s not going to be in harmony with you, and you know it’s not aligned with who you really are. You know on a soul level that you are wasting time. For every moment, come into the acceptance of the moment. Our ancestors knew full well how to navigate our reality. 

We’ve complicated self-care and it doesn’t have to be complicated. You basically need to sweat, you need to hydrate, and you need to move to whatever degree you can. You need to provide yourself the fuel and support yourself in strengthening your foundation. There’s freedom in this.

Having the Courage to Express Our Vulnerability

pdblog7.23

Sometimes what we're missing is the courage to express our vulnerability. We're unwilling to be vulnerable. Sometimes we’re hell bent on powering through things, needing to prove things, or needing to assert certain things in certain situations. At some point we have to embrace vulnerability, especially as empathic sensitive beings. This can be scary because you've put yourself out there before and you've articulated your fears and concerns only to be shut down or not be embraced or not be heard. And so I get that vulnerability is really hard. However, I've discovered that it's the only way to truly make it.  


The more you begin to embrace vulnerability, the more your energy, frequency and your gifts expand. This takes being willing to be honest about how you're doing it. Be willing to be honest about what you're going through. The more you can be honest about what you're dealing with and what you're going through, the less of an issue it is.

Live in Peace, Not in Pieces, Free Guide from My friend, the Holy Woman

peacefulliving

If you’re anything like me, the last fifteen months on planet earth have been challenging, at times nerve shattering, and stressful to the max.

I’ve been craving peace.

Something that has really made a difference in returning me to a state of peace and contentment is a guide written by my friend, Sadhviji, who has spent the last 25 years in India as a holy woman studying the Vedas in English and Hindi.

She went from working on a Ph.D. on psychology at Stanford to running one of the largest ashrams in Rishikesh for the past twenty-five years, and she serves hundreds of thousands of devotees around the world as one of todays’ pre-eminent spiritual teachers.

Sacred Warrior: Living Truth

Man and eagle
The sky is not the limit; it is just the beginning of the Sacred Warrior path.
We start in the East with the strength of a mountain below and an aerial view of the endless sky. From here, we step into the now of the present moment. We see further and with greater distance to gain a clearer perspective of our lives. We understand the mission is greater than our egos. When we think of Sacred Warriors, we think of those who can communicate with presence and power—Gandhi, Mother Teresa and Martin Luther King. Fearless spirits who have shone light on the darkest places. Strong believers grounded in Truth who changed the world through the kindness of their actions.

You Are a Vortex

IMG_3526-1200x900

Most people are familiar with the word vortex in relation to energy centers at Sedona, Arizona, associated with various points in the physical landscape there, such as Cathedral Rock. These are believed to be places where powerful spiritual connections can take place. Other well-known energy spots, or sacred sites, are at Stonehenge, Machu Picchu, Haleakala Crater, the Great Pyramid, and the ancient Maya cities of Tulum and Tikal, as well as the underwater Atlantis Road near Bimini.

Not all vortexes are famous though. You may live close to one or more, as I do (I believe nearby Mt. Auburn Cemetery is a sacred energy vortex). Vortexes can take many forms and spark a variety of experiences, physical and nonphysical. At Mt. Auburn (and other places like Machu Picchu and Tikal), I have felt connected to something greater than my physical body, beyond time and space. Each sacred site I have visited unfolds into an interdimensional journey; the very quality of the light is extraordinary, heavenly. And this is how I have come to perceive vortexes: places where an intense flow of energy back and forth links the two dimensions of Heaven and Earth.

Harvesting Your Future

harvesting

What seeds do you want to plant now?  You need to start telling the truth and to start having your  life be a reflection of where you are now. What’s your story? Because if your life is a reflection of where you are now and how you are now, then ultimately your future harvest is going to be a reflection of your consciousness. Do you see how it works? 

Your future harvest is going to be a reflection of your consciousness now, and this is where personal responsibility and accountability become important because there’s absolutely nothing that you can do about where you were 10 years ago, 20 years ago, 30 years ago. You made those choices, you can’t go back and re-choose them. You needed to choose them. It’s a part of the unfolding of the divine world for your life.

Bridging the Divide: Learning to Tend and Befriend

bridge
One of the great sufferings facing us is the growing divide between humans with different views, different realities. This talk looks at several levels of divides—being at war with ourselves, creating separation in our personal relationships, and societal divides. We then reflect on how we can evolve consciousness from the trance of “Fight, Flight, Freeze” to the wholeness that arises with “Tend and Befriend.”

Becoming Infinite Fully and Completely

Becoming_Infinite

This is an insight into how transformation actually unfolds in every moment. So just in case you’re not good at math, don’t panic. 

When you introduce infinity into any equation, it becomes infinite. Why is this important? Because your soul is infinite. The parts of you that’s divine. The part of you that has God, is infinite and your presence exists outside of time. It exists outside of space. And so when we begin to have moments of transcendence, and we begin to have moments of experiencing who we are beyond the identity, beyond the body and the mind, and beyond the emotions, we begin to tap into the infinite within us. Once we have that experience, even for a moment, it begins to dissolve everything inside of us until eventually everything inside of us becomes infinite as well. 

So for example, if you’ve been coming to Call to  Calm, your relationship with your emotions, your thoughts, your body, and your reality has fundamentally shifted. Why is that? Because you’re no longer perceiving or experiencing your reality from a finite perspective or viewpoint. You’re now beginning to perceive and experience your reality from an infinite viewpoint, from an infinite perspective, meaning that you’re remembering I’m not these emotions,  I’m not these thoughts. I’m not this body. What I am is this infinite continuum, this infinite expression of energy.

How To Tap Into Your Higher Self

higherself

The Higher Self is our connection to Divinity – to God, Spirit, Source, the Universe, or whatever you choose to call it. 

You can think of the Higher Self as your soul – the Divine part that chooses us and chooses to experience life through us. Through our personalities. This higher consciousness is the part of us that doesn’t fall prey to fear, scarcity, comparison, othering – or any of the things that cut us off from one another. The Higher Self recognizes that all life is sacred.

There are multiple parts to the self… 

Although this Higher Self is the true essence of who we are as Spiritual beings, over time and through our life experience, another part of us forms as well – the smaller self or the ego. 

The ego or the small self tends to think it’s running the show, although it really isn’t at all. This part of us sees the world through a lens of limited or false stories about reality. Things we’ve decided are true about ourselves or the world through our conditioning and the beliefs that have been passed down to us from our ancestors. Through these stories, we create an idea of our “self,” an identity we attach to. 

This part of the self is necessary to our quality of uniqueness, but can also tend to trip us up. It’s a very triggered view of the world that is shaped and formed and also influenced through our wounding. And it has very little to do with our true, Divine self. 

When you’re coming from a place of woundedness and you need to heal, it’s very hard to connect to your higher self or to find Spiritual growth.

Evolving Out Into The Infinite

PDBLog6.3

I feel like we don’t acknowledge what it takes to truly make an impact in the world. And sometimes that’s the people around you, as much as this is an individual journey. This is a journey of awakening and a journey of evolving into who we are, the people around you are necessary as well, because God put them there. And, sometimes it takes a huge amount of vulnerability to realize that actually you wouldn’t do as well without those individuals.

And it’s not that you’re codependent, but it’s just that at some point you have to appreciate who played a part in getting you to where you are, how people contributed the time, how they put in the love, and how they put in the loyalty that they displayed.

I’ve been in this place of reflecting on how much of a role my wife Jan has played in me being who I am today and how, I don’t know who I would be in the absence of her presence in my life.

Being a Trapeze Artist without a Safety Net

trapeezeartist

When you let go of the need to be approved of, when you let go of the need to be understood, when you let go of the need to be liked, all of a sudden there’s an even greater freedom in the transmission and in the communication. So beyond ancestry, beyond generational patterns, what you are is a conduit. You’re a vessel and a vehicle. 

Freedom in its totality and the totality of its expression is being a trapeze artist without a safety net, which means in every moment, surrendering to God. And in every moment, allowing God to express through you. Sometimes there are no words, sometimes nothing’s happening and that’s great. You don’t need to always be in action. You don’t always need to be communicating. You don’t always need to be doing something. Sometimes in the silence, everything is communicated in a greater way than you ever could through words. 

It doesn’t matter how old you are. It doesn’t matter what your level of education is. It doesn’t matter what your life has been like, how you’ve lived your life. All of that was the unconscious manifestation of every pattern and every decision that was made before now.

True (TRUTH) Leadership

following-the-leader

All of us can help our society by holding ourselves to high standards. This does not mean holding someone accountable for what he or she said twenty-five years ago. This is unnatural and spiritually wrong. Who among us doesn’t have issues we have needed to forgive and asked to be forgiven from twenty-five years ago?

These types of issues cause an insanity that saps our energy because they bring up the feeling (from a deep layer of the emotional body) that we do not deserve to be forgiven. It costs all of us the ability to believe that life moves forward rather than backward. And when we as a society are part of the process by publicly seeing people put down because of something they said more than twenty-five years ago, we are all zapped at our core because it feeds our own feeling that we are unforgivable and cannot move forward.

The Power of No Is My Inner Guide

enjoying-spring-on-my-balcony

The first time I took a drink of alcohol coming into my 14th year of life, I became very sick for a few days and the first time I smoked cigarettes, I stayed in the bed for several days. My inner guide shouted throughout every cell and fiber of my being, “This is a NO for you.” With my family history, I was destined some would say to be an addict. And yet, I fed the lion and rebel inside of me because I was too determined to not listen to anyone’s advice. You may think not taking the advice of other people would be admirable yet what I have lived to learn is you always want to listen and take the advice of your inner awareness. 

Spiritually, I suffered greatly for those 15 years because I heard No and kept going. I did everything I could to drink and drink better. I took speed and smoked pot and any supplements I could take to keep my high longer and yet at the end of every day, I still heard no. 

Intuition for humans is like instincts for animals. We have a natural rhythm which guides us with every choice and decision we make. When we do not listen, the pain is so much greater and over time the voice which once shouted becomes faded and dim. Intuition is like a muscle, the more you use it the more you have it. You become toned and tuned one would say and your inner advice will never let you down.

The Value of Embracing Your Intuition

psychicorintuitvie

My first question is, Are you intuitive? I also want to know, Are you psychic? What do you believe the difference is? I would like to dive into that and give you some tips to understand the difference.

What do you believe the difference is between being intuitive and being psychic?

How do you get your messages from the spirit world, from your angels, your guides, your loved ones in spirit?

Do you feel them? Do they just kind of pop into your head and you just kind of know? Are they visual … do they come through your dreams or through images or signs that you see? Or are they auditory and you just hear the messages?

So, do you see them? Do you hear them? Do you feel them, or do you know them?

I’m going to give you the definition of the word Psychic: A person considered or claiming to have psychic powers; a medium; relating to, or denoting faculties of phenomena that are apparently inexplicable by nature’s laws, especially involving telepathy or clairvoyance.

Now, Intuitive: Using or based on what one feels to be true, even without conscious reasoning; instinctive.

Here is what I’ve come to know: They’re not different. Your intuition and the word intuitive and the word psychic and the way they express are the same.

FLIGHTWAVE : Embodying the Universe

flight
We are a carrier wave of the Infinite,embodied presence of the Universe in every cell and every space of our bodies. In Unified Physics we can see through equations of connection and cosmic physiology that this is true.

All of us are a standing wave of infinite input/ output in direct conversation with all of Creation and beyond. I call it the Cosmology Biology Resonance. It is always present always activated, at times unknown yet fully experienced.

In this simple layered, ancient yet profound direct experience practice we tune in and activate more deeply the DNA of connection literally creating not only coherency but also the embodiment of Infinity, sensing it internally.

Spirit is Ready to Talk!

spiritguide

Did you know that the Spirit World is our real home? We all came from that Divine place made up of God, Divine Source, Angels, Spirit Helpers, Guides, our loved ones and our friends. They’re all made of the same energy as us, and that beautiful spiritual force that binds the Universe and heavens is also part of us. It’s the power of love that constantly keeps us connected to one another.

As you know, one of my favorite sayings is “Those in the Spirit World want to talk to us—as much as we want to talk to them.” They want to help us, gently guide us, and inspire us to be all that we can be here in the physical world. Sometimes we just have to ask.

How To Shift Your Karma and Get Into Flow

intotheflow

We all go through difficult times, when things don’t seem to work out.

It’s easy to lose hope and feel like you are facing bad karma or luck during these moments.

Your karma is the result of the sum total of your actions. For every cause there is an effect.

If you are going through tough times right now, remember that it is only a season, and no season lasts forever. Even your most difficult time will pass.

Trust.

Your challenges are gifts in disguise sent by the universe to strengthen your character. Your dreams chose you for a reason. And your dream will take you on a journey of having to become the person who is capable of fulfilling the vision.

It’s often when things are challenging that we grow the most. So trust that you wouldn’t be going through the difficult situation if you weren’t ready or capable of handling it.

In these times you can either feel like a victim or you can take the first step and take full responsibility for your situation.

Rather than asking “Why ME?”

Ask “WHY am I going through this experience and WHAT is my soul seeking to learn?”

Recognize that you are not a victim.

Your current situation is simply the product of the total combined actions, thoughts, feelings and intentions of your past. Everything you have lived up until now has contributed to where you are. So it’s no accident.
