Do You Walk Your Talk?

Do You Walk Your Talk? - Dr. Margaret Paul

Many people who have been on a path of personal and spiritual growth have spent a lot of time talking. Talking with friends about what is wrong and what they want. Talking with therapists about their past and their beliefs. Talking with a mate about what needs changing. They have explored and explored and talked and talked - and not much has changed.

Perhaps it's time for less talk and more action - loving action.

Loving actions are those actions that support our highest good and the highest good of others. Loving actions are those actions that are motivated by love rather than by fear.

Exploring your limiting beliefs and where you got them is essential for opening the door to loving action. However, you can explore forever and nothing will change without loving action. You can talk and talk and learn and learn, but until you are willing to take loving action, nothing will change. It’s not that it is time to stop learning about our fears and beliefs, but it is time for all this learning to result in loving action.

Resolving Conflict Without Talking About Problems

Hope, Love, and the Web of Life

Hope, Love, and the Web of Life - Peggy Kornegger

“I don’t know about hope, but I know about love…. Our job is to love.”
—Robin Wall Kimmerer


In this time of heartbreaking political tumult and ecological grief, where do we turn for wisdom or comfort? For a reason to continue, in spite of how the world looks? This past weekend, I had the great honor and blessing of attending a program with Robin Wall Kimmerer, author of Braiding Sweetgrass. She is a botanist, professor, member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, and beyond all else, a wise and caring soul. Repeatedly, during those three days, she asked the question: What does Mother Earth ask of us? Not what can we get, but what can we give? We are living in a time of shifting focus: from taking to giving, from self to community. Earth herself teaches reciprocity and connection. This is our heritage and our guidepost, if we pay attention, if we drop the cloak of self-centeredness and don the cloth of humility.

How Wisdom Can Counter Fear

How Wisdom Can Counter Fear -  Deepak Chopra, MD

In anxious times the focus on fear seems constant and yet extremely unhelpful. Neither the body nor the mind can adapt to fear for long stretches of time without causing bad effects. If you feel fearful and you want to feel differently, what path should you take? 

People tend to be unsuccessful at finding a way out of anxiety.  That’s because the two most common responses to anxiety are denial and distraction. By ignoring your anxiety or doing something that takes your mind off it, you might find temporary relief. But is there something more permanent and effective?

Is Intuition The Same As A Gut Feeling?!

colette6.7.22 Is Intuition The Same As A Gut Feeling?!

Do you ever doubt your intuition? 

Learning to fine tune your inner guidance system takes time, awareness, and practice. As human beings, we have to learn to sort through our many emotions, our egos, and our thoughts and learn to discern what is true guidance from our intuition. 

You may have heard that your intuition is the same as your “gut feeling,” and while it’s true that your body is the instrument of intuition,  true intuitive guidance is so much MORE than just a gut feeling. 

Your intuition is kind of like a radio – tuned into a frequency I like to call “Soul Fm.” It allows you to pick up on the many signs, feelings, and factors that come together to give you guidance and direction from the Universe. It’s both deeper and wider than just the internal nudges you feel that guide you toward or away from something.

The Secret Gateway to Peace and Fulfillment

The Secret Gateway to Peace and Fulfillment - Guy Finley

Each spring great forces are released to work upon and within us. During this time of the year the possibility of making a brand new beginning in life is never greater. Why is this true? Because spring also “dawns” within us, and if we will align ourselves with the power of its presence, then working for us is the unstoppable principle of rebirth itself. But, if we would receive this new life, with all its promise, then we must be willing to sacrifice within us whatever stands in its way…

Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: Cascade

Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: Cascade

As soon as we can walk, we are
taught to run. In time, we think
we have to catch something out
of reach, when, if we let go, time
carries us the way a river carries a
boat with no oars. If we find our
place on the bottom, the noise stops
and time holds us in its soft cascade.

So jump into the current of time.
Sure, we will get wet. But that’s the
point. Important papers will dry and
seem less important. And the secret
maps no longer secret will free us
from ourselves. I once saw an old
woman leave her belongings on
the shore and wade in naked. I
feared she might be taking her
life. But she was finally giving
herself over to joy.

A Question to Walk With: Describe a race you need to stop running. How can you begin to stop?

This is from my book of poems In progress, The Tone in the Center of the Bell.

Speak Your Peace

Speak Your Peace - Dr. Sue Morter

In this Short Answer episode, Dr. Sue addresses how it's time for humanity to "mature" our consciousness on a global scale, to begin living from the Frontside of the Model of Consciousness as the creative and loving energy that we are. It is time for this evolution especially now in this moment in our planetary history with major conflicts taking place between countries, individuals, and within our own consciousness. It's time to tap our peace, and speak and live it out in the world for the benefit of all.

Does Parenting Crimp Your Spiritual Development?

Does Parenting Crimp Your Spiritual Development?

Over my years of working as a psychic and coaching other in spiritual matters, the challenge of raising children and having time and energy for a vibrant spiritual practice has come up often. It is not uncommon, when a person has a shift in their inner world, they suddenly want to jump 100 percent into the metaphysical world.

Occasionally seekers wonder how to continue the constant caring for children while honoring their spiritual path.

The frustration of not being able to commit to your new channeling ability or tarot reading skills, is not often brought up in children play groups. If anyone reading this has experienced frustration and guilt because you have very little time for your metaphysical practices you are not alone.

Finding Purpose Outside of Work

Finding Purpose Outside of Work - Rachel Tenenbaum

Life purpose is often misunderstood as some huge task and undertaking to which we must dedicate all our time, our lives, and ultimately our careers.  When we divorce the idea that our purpose has to be aligned with our “work” we avail ourselves to the myriad of micro-moments in which we can live out our purpose and find regular fulfillment.

Dawn, Dusk, and Midday

Dawn, Dusk, and Midday  - Peggy Kornegger

Vacillations in how we feel are part of life, particularly now as the planet lives through a pandemic. We have unexpectedly come face to face with potential illness and mortality, as well as the relative shortness of one lifetime. It can shake our emotional foundations. Yet, wherever we are on the timeline of life, most of us gradually reach some kind of resolution. We come to terms with life and death. The wisdom of the ages reaches into our souls and awakens awareness. We realize time is an illusion and if we don’t fully immerse ourselves in “now,” we miss both the mundane and spiritual impacts of life. This is the soul’s journey, right now being played out on a world canvas, as we pass from dawn to dusk and finally see the full illumination of midday (or the “present moment”).
