When We Volunteer... We Understand That We Are One

female-volunteer-bringing-groceries-to-a-senior-woman-at-home-picture-id1214126038 Building relationship and communion with Source

No one can deny that there are a lot of challenging things going on in the world right now. 

Here in the United States, unprecedented wildfires are spreading so quickly that containment seems out of reach. Racial unrest and political tensions show no sign of diminishing. Across the globe, coronavirus cases continue to spike while explosions, collapsing mines, earthquakes, and monsoon rains are overpowering our human desire for stability and safety.

It’s no wonder that a lot of people feel at a loss as to what they can do to help or make a difference. But there’s always some way we can assist another or nurture our planet, and when we decide to offer ourselves in service, it’s always a blessing, never a sacrifice.

Your unconscious is more powerful than you know

nature-woman-picture-id487484235 Become more powerful than your most powerful limiting programs

Have you heard the saying, “You are what you think”?  

That simple statement is more true than you know!

Everyday you experience unconscious thoughts that sabotage your success… 

Energy blocks that lay the groundwork for dis-ease… limit your capacity to access your authenticity, soul gifts, and joy.

Every day you are unconsciously reacting to these unconscious thoughts - these energy blocks.

They control your actions by keeping you 

Feeling small

Lacking in confidence

Afraid to make the big decisions and take the next steps…

They steal your joy by reminding you of past mistakes, preventing you from forgiving yourself and others.

A One-Minute Lesson In Higher Consciousness

healthy-young-black-woman-exercising-picture-id157685437 When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.

Although meditation has become widely popular, higher consciousness baffles and intimidates people. It seems like a faraway exotic attainment, and perhaps more myth that reality. But higher consciousness is just a convenient catch-all for expanded awareness. Reaching any higher state depends on a simple, very basic axiom: You cannot change what you are not aware of. Grasping this statement takes only a minute, but the point is critically important.

To be aware is also called being mindful. It is very desirable to be mindful. It keeps you in the present moment. It involves being alert and open to new experiences. Mindfulness is detached: you are open to the present moment but are not attached to any outcome that you either desire or fear.

Yet mindfulness has a built-in catch. How do you remind yourself to be mindful when you have drifted away from the present moment? Mindfulness is the very state you are not in. Telling someone to be mindful is like saying “Don’t forget to remember.” Fortunately, you can get past the catch. It involves the simple act of noticing. Your mind is designed to notice things all the time and sending the signal to you.

When you notice a friend in the crowd or something appetizing on a restaurant menu or an attractive stranger, what actually happens? You flick a switch and start to pay attention. The thing you notice is selected from lots of other things you are not noticing. When you see a friend in the crowd, you ignore the other people all around.

Changing the Darkness Into Light

Blog-dark-light-9-4-20 You matter more than you know.

You are here to feel. You are here to bring into completion everything that every human being before you that did not have the courage to resolve or complete. 

Your purpose on this planet is to embrace everything within you that needs to be embraced. By liberating your personal vibration and frequency, you become one less place in the world that perpetuates separation. The reason you are so sensitive, and so deeply empathic, is because you are here to feel, not just on behalf of yourself, but on behalf of a planet of people who have yet to remember who they really are. 

Your role here is to give up the need to understand what's happening and to just simply be available, to feel what there is to feel within you. Recognizing that every time you are feeling an emotion, you are setting humanity free. Every time you are thinking, you are setting humanity free. Every time you're examining a belief or a story, you are setting humanity free.

Caretakers of Consciousness

IMG_2536-1200x900

We have a responsibility, those of us born on Earth at this key transitional moment in the planet’s history. A powerful and sacred responsibility. And that is to hold the dream of a harmonious world and a loving human species in our hearts at all times and to act accordingly: with love, with kindness. To keep our minds clear of fearful thought forms and influences, which are becoming more and more prevalent and strident now. Conspiracy theories of all kinds are beginning to dominate social media, and hatred of “other” is growing. Divisiveness is encroaching on compassion in the human experience. When we separate off into smaller and smaller groups, suspicious of one another, we are falling further and further away from our purpose in being here.

How to Tell If You’re Using Your Innate Psychic Ability

woman-in-an-ancient-temple-looks-at-the-cross-picture-id1209246894 Are you opening your awareness to your natural abilities?

Did you know that you were born psychic? It’s true. In fact, we were all born psychic. Some people have more extrasensory abilities than others, yet we all possess this innate natural power.

You don’t have to be a transcended master or meditation guru or a TV celebrity. Being psychic isn’t about fortune-telling, crystal balls or predicting the future, it isn’t just something we possess—it’s more a way of being.

Let me tell you a little about what the word psychic means. Put simply, it comes from the Greek word psychikos that means “of the soul.” By definition, this means that as spiritual beings, we’re able to access, receive and transmit information that reaches beyond our natural five senses.

We’re all equipped with a complex and highly tuned inner guidance system, which we can regularly tap in to, using our intuitive and psychic abilities. Believe it or not, you use these special psychic abilities all the time.  You’re probably not even aware that you’re doing it. Take a few moments and answer the following 6 questions:

Death is Not the End of Life

sunflare-on-road-picture-id94502345 Real life serves the living without end.

We live in a stream of a living light that never stops pouring down upon us, even as it ceaselessly wells up from within us. The first part of this opening comment is obvious: sunlight streams down moment to moment upon our earth, vitalizing and nourishing all that it touches. And while this order of light allows us to see all the marvelous forms and colors that our physical eyes behold, there is another kind of light that is of a higher order. 

In much the same way as sunlight reveals the world around us, this interior light illuminates the worlds within us and more. It is through the revelations that it alone makes possible—as it discloses whatever may be concealed within us—that we find and are nourished by an ever-expansive understanding of who and what we really are. We begin to realize our possibilities in life are as endless as this light that reveals them. Slowly it dawns upon us that standing in this light is the same as realizing the promise of an always new and self-liberating revelation.

The Alchemy of Intention ~ We are changing the world

water-drops-on-green-leaf-picture-id125143094 We are all here to play our part!

Last week I wrote to you about how the choice we make to be in true, conscious Relationship with the Divine manifests not only as a covenant with the One Presence, but also with one another. 

I also talked about how being in conscious Relationship inspires a decision to be in service to all of life—including other people, nature, our planet, and our own Divine Self. 

Ever since I put those words to paper (so to speak), I’ve wondered about the people in our community, and in the world, who aren’t yet sure what that broader view of service looks like.

They may sometimes feel uplifted and inspired…

They may have experienced an inkling of personal transformation…

They may even have developed a mental strategy of what they might do.

But do they have the willingness to go from a deep feeling of Relationship and a personal plan for change into a mature and disciplined life of consistent asking, receiving, and giving?

Sitting Shiva for America

woman-yoga-sitting-lotus-position-with-shiva-goddess-figure-picture-id672950304 Sitting Shiva for America

I woke up this morning feeling a sense of great loss, loss for so many things…the loss of civility in our country, the loss of life from Covid, and cancer, and guns, and innocent black men and women being killed, innocent protesters being gunned down, the violence in our streets.

The seemingly impossible divide between left and right.

The loss of stability and security.

The loss of freedom to hug our friends, and so much more.

Later, when I looked at my Facebook feed I found more loss.

Friends mourning the loss of loved ones, beloved pets, careers that were once promising that have disappeared.

Grief. Mourning. Fear. Uncertainty.

Are You Codependent With Your Higher Power?

feng-shui-balance-daybreak-picture- Are you expecting your higher power to do for you what only you can do for yourself?

Hilary wrote:

I am eating very clean and working out five days a week. I try to meditate every day. Despite this, I feel disconnected and unloved by my Higher Power. I know this is just how I FEEL and not reality. I tell my little girl it’s not true…but I can’t seem to change this belief. I know connection will help me. I need some guidance from you to hear my Guidance!

It’s wonderful that Hilary is eating well, exercising and meditating. But taking loving care of herself involves much more than that. The fact that she feels disconnected from and unloved by her higher power indicates that she is disconnected from her feelings and not loving herself – that she is operating from her wounded self.

Telling her inner child that something isn’t true is not at all the same thing as living from the truth. If she is abandoning herself by ignoring her feelings – staying in her head rather than in her heart – by judging herself, by turning to various addictions (even meditation can be an addiction if the intent is to bliss out and avoid her feelings, or to control God), or by making others responsible for her feelings, then she is operating from a closed heart. There is no way to connect with her guidance when her heart is closed.

Be the Master of All Moments of Resistance

gold-light-sphere-ball-with-glitter-sparkles-burst-and-glowing-picture-id1194831233 Beyond the resistance is the flow.

How would you like to live, literally, in a sphere of light that by its very proximity to you enables you to see every step of your path? Imagine how nice it would be to be able to see situations clearly before they went bad so that, for example, you wouldn't say those hurtful words. You wouldn't spend the money you couldn't afford. You wouldn't take the drug or the drink or the food, or participate in the entertainment that somehow compromises or contaminates you. You wouldn't fall into a depression.

We are each created to be in relationship with and have within us in that relationship a kind of golden orb whose radiance provides us with a protective sphere -- a shelter of refuge, safety, strength -- all in one powerful light. If you will work with what I am going to show you about negativity, you can experience the golden orb given to you by the same God that created you -- one that will take away forever the power that negative forces have had over you.

Let's begin by looking at resistance. What do you know about resistance other than that you run into it every day? Well, aren't negativity and resistance the same thing? And isn't it also true that in the moment that you resist something, you are absolutely certain about the fact that you must resist it?

How To Make Your Meditations Effortless

meditation-is-how-i-stay-focused-in-life-picture-id954650780 When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily. - Deepak Chopra


Meditation has a built-in problem that needs solving, the problem of noncompliance. Countless people have taken up the practice, motivated by the benefits of meditation supported by literally thousands of studies. The first few sessions go well, which is encouraging, but it is only a matter of time before meditation becomes one more thing we don’t have time for.

Letting your meditation drop away seems to affect every kind of practice, no matter how simple, including mindfulness, mantra meditation, Buddhist Vipassana, and so on. Even sitting for 10 minutes following your breath, which is the simplest meditation of all, doesn’t manage to stick. The result is that the vast majority of people stop meditating and never go back, while a much smaller number meditate “when I feel I need it.”

Will You Choose Relationship with the Divine? - It is the simple path

Will You Choose Relationship with the Divine? - It is the simple path Will You Choose Relationship with the Divine? - It is the simple path

We all have our own term for that which is First Cause, Universal Intelligence, Eternal Peace, Perfect Joy, Love.

But words can only go so far, and no matter what term we use to express this deep, heartfelt knowing, the term itself remains beautiful in its limitation.

This is because we, as part of the Divine, are forever and eternally extending the Divine through our unique, blessed, ever-expanding Communication of Love.

Is there anything else you’d rather feel?

Is there any other way you’d rather be?

We have a choice.

The Big Shift You Still Need to Make for Life to Flow

The Big Shift You Still Need to Make for Life to Flow

So many of us have dived really deep to discover our connection to God, to examine our self-defeating patterns and to anchor into a co-creative partnership with life. And, it’s worked! There have been ahas, some real and tangible shifts and openings have taken place—heck, your life might look very different than it did when you first embarked upon this journey of self-realization.

And yet. (I’m sensing the heads nodding already.) Despite all the work you’ve done, all you’ve learned, you still struggle. You struggle with your finances. In relationships. To make impact.

Maybe you didn’t expect rainbows and kittens and sunshine every moment, but, c’mon, really? To still have to be dealing with [fill in the blank] (debt, insecurity, a soul-deadening job, one more failed relationship)?

Oh, I’ve been there, brother (or sister). And here’s what God told me: It’s not about you.

One Breath at a Time

serene-sunset-on-a-beach-picture-id1163593127 One Breath at a Time

Are you breathing?

The Practice:
One breath at a time.

Why?

[If for you the breath is associated with trauma and discomfort, you probably shouldn’t try this practice in its form below. But you might adapt it to something that is more nurturing for you, such as a saying or image.]

Breathing brings you home. Body and mind twine together in the breath. As soon as you become aware of breathing, you’re in your body. Speed up the breath and there’s new energy. Slow it down and you calm. Inhale and oxygen surges into your brain while the arousing sympathetic nervous system activates and accelerates the heartbeat. Exhale and activate the soothing peaceful parasympathetic nervous system, so the heart beats more slowly. In the breath you are home in this moment, this Now.

The Greater Evolution

You are a magnificent being. You have a light inside of you that is both dynamic and powerful. It’s time to finally have the courage to liberate this potential for all of the world to see and feel. 

Many of you have been wondering during this time of coronavirus how to best utilize every gift and blessing that you have for the betterment of the world. The greater evolution or ascension happens through the radical and profound acceptance of yourself. 

The more you end your resistance to your humanity, the more you realize that all of these things that you’re trying to bring about in your life naturally exist within you. We do this though relaxing into the parts of us that already is.

Are We Here Yet?

Are We Here Yet?

Like small children, those of us on a spiritual path sometimes want to tug on the sleeve of those walking nearby and ask, “Are we there yet? Are we any closer to enlightenment?” Perhaps the question should be rephrased: “Are we here yet?” Because as long as we see enlightenment as a goal and oneness with God as a destination, we will be forever on the path. “There” seems to imply an ending, the achievement of an intention, the reaching of a final destination, whereas “here” is more about the present moment, right before us. “Be here now,” Ram Dass wrote. In truth, we are always living in the “here” of eternity, an infinite present in which time does not exist. The problem is we can’t recognize it because our vision is blocked by visions of “there.”

Psychic Ability vs. Intuition: What’s the Difference?

portrait-of-sad-young-woman-with-face-protective-mask-looking-through-picture-id1217603648 Psychic Ability vs. Intuition: What’s the Difference?

I've had so many emails and messages about tuning in during these challenging times we continue to face. I know everyone is asking the obvious questions, such as: "How long will it last?", "Am I safe to go out?", "Can I go to the party my family is throwing?" ... and so many more. There are no set answers, but many of you have been asking how to tune into your own inuition at this time. So, I thought it was important to remind you of the primary difference between psychic information and intuitive information.

How do you tell whether you’re getting psychic messages or it’s just a hunch or your imagination? The words psychic and intuition are often used interchangeably. Is there a difference between the two? I’d say that psychic ability is simply the natural extension of our intuition.
