Quiet Genius: NO ROOM IN THE INN FOR CRITICISM

templeH20.24
The author Don Miguel Ruiz reminds us to be impeccable with our word and to speak with integrity.


Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

Too many companies and work environments are highly impacted by the gossip at the water fountain or conversations behind closed doors. Perhaps you remember the old axiom, “We change, we accept, or we leave.”

If we are unable or unwilling to accept what we hear, then we need to empower ourselves to not constantly rehearse the pros and cons of the individual that we are having difficulties with. It makes us appear as if we do not have an interesting life.

Everyday Oracles

colette10.20

Do you ever wish that you could talk directly to your higher power – asking for guidance and receiving clear signs and signals to keep you on track along your journey? 

Whether or not we are aware of it, Spirit (the Universe, God, the Divine, or whatever you choose to call it) is always looking out for us and keeping us on track for our highest good. Even in our most challenging times, Spirit is there for us. 

But so much of the time, we miss the communication that is available to us every single day through the conscious Universe. Whether or not we choose to pay attention or listen, Spirit is always communicating with us and is there as our partner to protect and guide us. 

We just have to learn to slow down, tune in, and receive the guidance and the messages that are all around.

If you’ve ever found yourself craving messages from spirit or signs from the Universe, you will find immense value, meaning, and peace in learning to understand and recognize everyday Oracles. 

Recognizing the presence of everyday Oracles 

There are countless ways the Universe sends you messages. It could be a series of repeating numbers, a song on the radio that catches your attention, a symbol you ask for and recognize, a dream, a meaningful coincidence, or even a message in your soup bowl… 

In fact, these communications from the Divine are so common and so meaningful that I wrote an entire book about them! My book, Messages From Spirit is all about the many ways in which we can communicate with our higher power through the world around us.  

In the book, I share a story about Tasseography, a type of divination that my father shared with me as a young girl. He taught me to read messages in leftover coffee grounds, an ancient practice found in Slavic and Baltic nations as well as the middle east. It’s closely related to tea-leaf reading, which actually had its known beginnings in China although no one knows 100% of its origin.

The story goes that a close friend of mine was visiting and we had discussed the idea of going out to dinner, and then going home afterward to share some Turkish coffee and read the messages in the leftover grinds. 

At dinner, we both ordered a thick squash soup. As I ate my soup, I kept seeing images popping up in the bowl! I saw a swan, a pumpkin, and a baby.

Addiction to Spirituality: The Spiritual Bypass

margaret10.12
Are you using your spirituality as a "spiritual bypass" to avoid feeling your feelings and taking responsibility for them?

Lian had been meditating for many years before consulting with me for his depression. He had been part of a spiritual community that encouraged their members to turn to God through prayer and meditation whenever they were feeling any difficult or painful feelings such as anger, hurt, anxiety or depression. He had been taught that Spirit would transmute his feelings for him and bring him the inner peace he sought.

Yet Lian was depressed. "I have faithfully practiced what I've been taught, so why am I still depressed? What am I doing wrong?"

Lian was suffering from what is called "spiritual bypass."

Quiet Genius: THIS AMAZING LIFE

templeH10.11
Since I was a little girl, I have been told that my great grandmother was Native American.

Through the years, if I liked chanting and Native American memorabilia, my mom would say it was because of my heritage and the reason why she has darker skin. It was our story. When I began to learn and commit so many years to Shamanism, my mom would remind me, once again, it was because of my indigenous ancestral ties. In 2015, we all took the DNA test which revealed we were not ancestrally Native American. My mom was and continues to be in shock that she had believed a story all her life  which turned out to be simply untrue. We had told ourselves this ancestral story all of our lives, only to find out we had been giving the wrong information.

To me, this is the value of New Thought teachings. We are able to free people from th false stories they have been told all of their lives in order to create a new, bright, and dynamic existence. A person can clearly move from "impossible" to "I’m possible."

Floating in Kindness

peggy10.8

I have read that patients hear everything that is said or felt in the hospital room even when sedated or unconscious. Anita Moorjani writes of watching and hearing the doctors and nurses and her family members from “above” and seeing the connections between everything as she went through a near-death experience. I have always believed this to be true. Recently, I had my own experience of something similar, though not at the edge of death. I was sedated for a breast cancer operation, and as I came out of sedation after surgery, I had the vivid experience of writing a very detailed letter describing how extraordinarily kind everyone was in the operating and recovery rooms. I lay there feeling it all intensely as I slowly returned to conscious awareness within the “real world.” But I ask you, “What is real here?” There was no doubt in my fully conscious mind that I was remembering what I experienced during surgery and immediately after. I had felt surrounded by Bodhisattvas.*

My invitation – for a moment, embrace What Is and Be Bliss...

drsue10.8

There is so much unfolding for so many in the world right now. My invitation is to embrace, with loving presence, what it is you are feeling in your body.

Do you desire to walk, talk, live, and breathe as one who allows life to unfold magnificently, no matter what is happening "out there?" You have the ability to integrate, live, and manifest as the Essence you are so that you consciously receive deep truth from the universe.

As we pay attention to what's happening in the body and ignite circuitry, we discover how to live without being stopped by the hesitations, procrastinations, or self doubt we land in when our thinking mind simply doesn't “know” the answer.

Particularly right now, mass consciousness is powerful. When “the news” tells us how "things are going to be," and we believe what they say; it's what happens. The news precedes reality because our thoughts precede reality. I'm not saying to completely disconnect or ignore the world. However, when you plug in, pay attention to the body, notice where there is a charge, and build circuits.

Guided

IMG_3700-1200x900

Every moment of our lives is guided by an Intelligence that we may only partially recognize while we are in physical form. It has been called variously Infinite Consciousness, Soul Awareness, or more simply, God/Goddess. We are a part of that vast beingness, and before we move from formlessness to form (birth), we choose an overview for our lives that opens us to expansion and evolving. Our physical lives interweave with one another within a vast tapestry of intention and meaning woven by that Intelligence, which we are one with. There is no experience or event, however small or large, that is not connected to that cosmic interweaving.

5 signs you're entering 5D consciousness

biskind10.1

When you’re living in 5D consciousness, you align with your soul’s higher purpose to fulfill your destiny.

It’s just that simple.

As your consciousness leaves 3D and rapidly ascends towards the fifth dimension, it can feel like you’re soaring through the clouds, riding a wave of euphoria so intense, you may never reach earth again.

New information is pouring into your awareness and you become mindful of even the smallest signals from life that will guide you into new states of joy, peace, and fulfillment. 

Abundance flows freely and suddenly everything around you appears clearer and more vibrant. 

Higher Awareness and Intuition become your primary guidance system.

The Rise of the Divine Feminine

Photo by Gillian Hunter

Our world is experiencing a profound energetic shift. The Divine Feminine is rising and changing the very fabric of life, affecting the way we work, make money, relate to one another, and more. 

The old, primarily masculine way of operating in the world is no longer working. Years ago, hard work used to get us what we wanted. Nowadays, the harder we push, the less things flow.

Be Willing To Receive What You Deserve To Have

PD9.24

Is it time to go beyond your own resistance to allow and receive what you are asking for. Freedom is the ability to live in peace and to love your life. On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you love your life? Not just some parts of your life, but every area of your life. If it’s less than 5 or 6, it’s because you are not willing to receive what you deserve to have. 

You deserve to be in a respectful relationship. You deserve to be in a loving relationship with intimacy. You deserve to work in a place where you are valued, cherished and paid. You deserve to be at peace in your life no matter what you are going through, whatever that is. Why?, because that’s spirituality.

You Are Here

IMG_3608-1200x900

Do you recall the maps in public places that help you find your way? There is usually a circle or an X with the notation: “You are here.” X marks the spot where you are in the “real world.” From there, you navigate the path to your destination. In life, without maps to guide us from birth to death, our course is less certain. We tend to wander at first, gradually gaining momentum and direction, then perhaps pausing at some point to contemplate the big picture. Our minds often wish we had something as simple as a map to direct us on the perfect life journey. We sometimes question where we are going and if we have made a wrong turn, a fatal error in judgment. What we don’t realize is that there are no errors.

Living with the Unknown

IMG_3361-1200x900

Nothing is definitively known, ever. That’s why Native Americans, in their timeless wisdom, have called life the “Great Mystery.” No matter what scientists do to try to break the code—send vehicles to Mars, create life in a test tube, photograph black holes in space—the puzzle of human existence and life and death is never really solved. Any “knowledge” we come to as a species is a shifting illusion that changes with the years and with those who are “knowing.” That’s the realm of science and the mind—and belief systems.

Intentional Spirit: A DREAM IS MEANT TO BE REALIZED

Temple9.5
Dreams and visions are a beautiful part of this life. The emerging self is always seeking to accept the now moment, while at the same time welcoming the mystery around the corner.


I realized a few years ago the statement “I am waiting on my dreams to come true” was not a true metaphysical and proactive statement for me. This statement put the outcome on something or someone else outside of my own power and control. I have since learned to declare, “My dreams are waiting for me to come true.”

I am claiming my role as co-creator in realizing my dreams by deepening my own self-awareness and development in what I want to become in this future dream.

As I hold the space for my dreams to become realized, I continue to grow my consciousness, so when the dream appears I will be ready. Harry Potter was told, “Do not keep your focus on the realization of your dream, otherwise, you will miss your life.”

Meet Every Moment Awake to a Limitless Life

guy8.30

It’s safe to say that most us wrestle with some kind of frustration on a daily basis. This kind of dissatisfaction can be with ourselves, over what we can or can’t get done—or with others, who may deny us our wish or otherwise disappoint our expectations. Accordingly, we can feel as though we are blocked, incapable, unable, not strong or wise enough to move ahead as we would.

The more we feel the unwanted presence of this limitation—accompanied as it always is by a host of painful dark thoughts and emotions—the more our attention is diverted to wrestle with them. Without seeing it, our struggle is no longer with wanting to understand the actual cause of our situation, but is now with these negative states that we don’t want. Feeling resentment over what we regret about ourselves only makes sense to the mind that believes soaking in a mud bath is the best way to get clean!

Intentional Spirit: THE UNIQUE PATH OF BEING

Temple8.28
The road less traveled is not paved with good intentions. It’s walked by Intentional Spirits.


The Intentional Spirit encompasses the expansiveness of the West because we often find ourselves here when we’re in the middle of something—midlife, mid year, a project, a night, or a crisis. It feels like we’re lost in a desert without water, wondering where we went wrong. How did we get here?
 
Instead of looking back to where we began or forward to where we hoped to be, we know there is another way. The Intentional Spirit looks inward at the patterns we carry and— like the trees in autumn shedding leaves—we too let go, surrender, and release things limiting beliefs, persons, places, etc). All the rules we thought we needed are gone. In this time of introspection and healing,  we begin to develop our own principles and values or successful living.

Intentional Spirit: BEING PRO-ACTIVE IN A CHANGING WORLD

thayes822
Whoopi Goldberg, in the film Sister Act 2, said repeatedly,
“If you want to go somewhere and you want to be somebody, you’ve got to stop and pay attention.”

An intentional person is often sitting in a place of saying, “Is this reactive or proactive? If I respond this way in a text, email, social media, or in personal conversation, would I want this to be my response three or four days from now? Would I want to see my response months from now and know it came from me?”

For every opportunity which presents itself, as Intentional Spirits we are required to assess how we are showing up to ourselves and to others. Often, as a challenge arises that feels similar to an occurrence in the past, we have a tendency to adversely affect our self-esteem by saying, “I thought I was done with this.

Why am I here again?”

A Unified Field of Potential

pd8.19

Anytime you get stressed out and overwhelmed and you wonder how it’s going to work out and how life is going to unfold, it’s because you’ve forgotten you are God. When you recognize this is not who you are and you make a shift in yourself, all of the obstacles fall away. 

When you actually stop dividing up your energy, meaning you stop creating your energy into a form and you allow yourself to stay in wholeness, you operate as the totality of your unified field. God has taken infinite forms. The formless has taken infinite forms. And, through those infinite forms it is waking up to itself.

What's The Deal About Being Psychic?

jholland8.9.21

As a boy, I was the one who saw things differently; I was the one who felt and heard things that others didn’t seem to notice; and I was never really understood. As I got older, I began to realize that I wasn’t that different after all—in fact, there were others like me!  Some chose to speak up, while others tried to hide it and push it away in a vain attempt to be normal. But being psychic or intuitive is normal. It’s something that we’re all born with to assist us while we’re here on this planet.

So, what’s the deal about being psychic and what does it really mean? Put simply, as spiritual beings, we are able to access, receive and transmit information that reaches beyond our physical body and our natural five senses.

Throughout history, cultures all over the world have honored their spiritual principles and maintained a deep belief that human beings consist of more than just physical bodies. Traditions were created with rituals (such as chanting, dancing and meditation) that are still used to this day to remain connected to Spirit and to fully utilize spiritual abilities.

What's Your Favorite Tool for Transformation?!

cbaronreid8.2

When you discover the right tool on your path to transformation, it can feel like discovering a “soul GPS” or a magic mirror that shows you everything you need to know about yourself and about life. 

On the quest for spiritual transformation, there’s nothing better than the feeling that you are being Divinely guided – like the Universe is showing you clues and signals that light the path home toward your higher self. 

This was the feeling I experienced when I first discovered Oracle Cards as a tool for personal growth and transformation. Initially, I was surprised to find out that Oracle Cards weren’t really about fortune telling at all, although yes they can be used to do that too,  but rather that they were like a direct line to an inner ancient wisdom and guidance from a High Power that knew me better than I ever could. From that moment on, I was hooked.

What Would Your Soul Do?

jholland7.25

Do you ever feel out of alignment and confused and then you start hearing a loud voice in your head saying: “What am I doing?” “I can’t keep living like this” or “Something’s got to change”?  When you’re asking these questions, it’s usually a big clue that your soul is trying to get your attention.

I call these moments: Soul Cry Outs. Your soul is yelling out to you: “Hey! I’m here! I can help!” That’s what’s great about your inner guidance. It sends up signals to both your psychic and physical senses.

When you need a wake-up call, your soul stops at nothing to get it to you. You may even meet a stranger who will somehow give you the message. Your inner guidance can bring up a thought, an action, or even manifest a situation in your outside life to get you to stop and think about what’s happening in front of you.

It’s easy to get caught up in our day-to-day routine and we have a tendency to focus only on our physical world and the issues in front of us - and forget about our spiritual self and its needs.  We pull away from the Source that infuses our soul, which only exacerbates our feelings of being tired, drained or confused. But now more than ever it’s important to force ourselves to check in and reconnect with our soul for its power, wisdom and guidance.
