It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.

Becoming a Vessel

“In order for me to become a vessel, to be used, I had to have my attachments broken. You can’t be a true vessel if you’re attached. You have to be emptied out.”—Julia Butterfly Hill


The idea of becoming a vessel, or conduit, for selfless love to flow through you into the world is part of many spiritual teachings. To be of service in this way can become one of the highest aspirations for those on a deeply committed spiritual path. Julia Butterfly Hill, who spent two years living in the branches of a 1500-year-old redwood tree to prevent it from being cut down, has described her own preparation for this dedicated act of service. She let go of all physical attachments in terms of possessions, but then Mother Nature emptied her of everything else in a fierce wind/rain storm that brought her face to face with the possibility of her own death. She was “emptied out” for the task ahead.

Life Without A Zip Code

You can go to great lengths to properly box your package, write your handwritten letter or send in a bill through the postal service.

However, if you do not have the five digits called the zip code or even if you have it one number off, it winds up in the ethers never arriving anywhere specifically and it may be months or even longer before your package is discovered. 

Often we are working with the law of attraction and waiting for our divine packages to arrive yet we are not fully aligned with the highest and best energy for our soul to deliver our full package

As a soul, you are coded with divine intelligence and all which is necessary to be you including all the experiences, the moments and parts to be absolutely complete in every way. When the orange tree is coming out as a seed, it is coded to be an orange tree, it is destined to be a tree as an orange not a lemon or grapefruit. Not as anything else but an orange. It does not spend  any of its creative time longing to be something different than what it is.

Finding The Blessing

Today is so perfect. Many of you have been able to find a blessing in what is unfolding. Has it been challenging? Of course. Has it pushed you beyond your comfort zone? Yes, it has. It’s important to remember that we are actually going to make it through this and find our freedom on the other side. 

Today is so perfect. Let’s get to a place where we recognize the blessing of life, knowing how fortunate we are to have this continuation of an individualized expression we call our life. I often wonder what happens when we end as a form. I understand we leave our bodies and merge with the Infinite, and go back to this incredible ocean of energy where we came from, but I often wonder what happens to reality. I find myself asking does it end when I end? Is it only happening because I am here to observe it? It’s really fascinating to me because the more science observes reality, and inquires about the nature of life, the more they are beginning to realize that life is as it is observed

Are You Pushing Miracles Away?

Creating miracles in your life, manifesting your desires, and co-creating your dream life with the Universe is available to all of us once you learn the simple, but not always easy, steps, to success.

Sometimes we get in our own way.

There once was a woman who saw on the television that her neighborhood was about to be flooded and officials warned everyone should evacuate.

She believed that God would save her, thus she ignored the warning.

Then a city emergency worker knocked on her door and told her to leave for higher ground and she said no, “God will save me.”

Then the floods came, and she had to run up to the second floor to stay dry.

A boat soon came to her second story window to rescue her and she said no, “God will save me.”

Then the second floor flooded, and she ended up on the roof of her home.

Open To The Universe By Integrating Your 7 Energies

When you start to strengthen your relationship to Spirit, you start to see the connections in all things. 

The connection between you and Mother Earth…

The connection between you and other humans…

…And the connection WITHIN yourself. 

The seven energies you contain within are discrete, sacred centers, linked to seven different story themes every human experiences throughout your life. These energies are integrated as well as separate, all part of the totality of your life’s story — the way you think, how you make your life choices, and what you encounter within yourself — as well as the conditions of your world as you journey forward. 

While I talk about the energies as separate, they are all part of a single, integrated system, just as we as individuals are separate, yet part of the Collective. 

When you work with these energies, you operate at two levels simultaneously: The individual and the whole. When you strengthen one, you strengthen the entire system. Each is independent and interdependent. 

Looking at each of the energies individually enables you to understand their importance, the related story, and how each impacts the whole. (If this interests you, there’s still time to join my FREE 7 Energies Challenge, going on right now!)

The Occupational Hazards of Being a Medium

Are some of you thinking about pursuing a career as a medium? I must warn you that this unique life could come with its occupational hazards. People will definitely look at you a little differently than if you worked in any other profession.

I remember when I was doing a workshop some years ago in Andover, Massachusetts. As I walked into the venue, I noticed two lovely, elderly ladies standing in front of one of the event billboards looking at my portrait. I felt quite flattered. At least until I heard the woman say, “Well, he looks normal!”

People do get a little nervous when they meet me and hear that I’m a psychic medium. I’m not sure what a medium is supposed to look like, but I guess they expect me to be carrying a crystal ball or looking a bit more mysterious.

There is a significant difference between being born and being birthed.

As I continue to celebrate the joy, power and privilege of life, I have made some great discoveries regarding being born and being birthed.

Being born is nature and natural and you were born due to the energy and effort someone was willing to put into carrying you and releasing you. Once you are supported and moving past your teenage years, you do not need to be carried by anyone else. Your soul purpose is to become a self actualized individual based upon what you agreed to before you showed up. As long as you are in bondage or needing to be carried or needing to be approved of by anyone else, you will never know true freedom. More than likely you will settle for mediocrity.

Surprising Ways Connecting With Spirit Will Set Your Life On The Right Path

When giving a reading to a young woman a couple days ago, something slightly different occurred. This reading was special because, right away her loved ones used me to share directional messages.  At first, I wasn’t even aware.  In the magical unfolding of this reading, I was reminded of the surprising ways connecting with spirit will set your life on the right path.

My client has lots of unseen help leading her to the right path.  Her Grandmother came thru and was very determined to get my client moving.  Her father came thru with the direction of new work. She has an amazing team looking out for her.

Your loved ones’, angels and guides are just waiting!  They are there for you when you pause and listen.  It is important to note, that for today I am referencing spirit as the part of you that holds the energy of God.  This is the conduit to receive messages from your guides, angels and all high vibrational beings.

You can use a psychic or medium to help you make the connection, but you also have the ability to receive messages.

Keep reading and discover seven surprising things you may experience when being guided to your true path.

What Is God?

Who or what is God? A question without an answer really—or with an infinite number of answers. For God is not really a concept that can be explained or a puzzle that can be solved. God is an experience, one that is as unique as every individual on this planet or every soul in the universe. And it cannot be contained within any description or answered question. Perhaps metaphor comes closest to expressing what God is.  And we each have our own inner metaphors for the experience of the Divine.

For me, God is the seed at the center of all creation as well as the flower that arises from the seed. It encompasses creation itself. God’s essence is gender-free, formless. God is birth and death, inhalation and exhalation, shakti and shiva, yin and yang. God is the eternal harmony in which there are no false notes, the truth within which there are no opposites, the Oneness that holds everything. God is an endless ocean of love, a light that shines from each individual soul and from the collective Soul of the cosmos. There is nothing I can imagine that is not God, nothing I can experience that isn’t God.

Moving From the Hole into the Whole

You yourself are the eternal energy which appears as the universe. 
You didn’t come into this world, 
you came out of it like a wave from an ocean.
--Alan Watts


How and when did we lose our intimacy to our beloved Creator, to one another, to all living things but most importantly to ourselves?

How did we evolve by not evolving to forget that we are born out of this earth and therefore all of creation is truly one?

Where do we begin to die, live and be reborn to remember this quest of life we are so fortunate to be part of? 

Perhaps when we look at the word intimacy, this is the first place where we either could use more insight, more respect or maybe some deeper reverence. The word intimacy in the Temple Hayes dictionary which translates into--IN-TO-ME-SEE-- is a simplistic way to identify with our relationship with life. While so many people in the world are longing to grow up, longing to understand life’s meaning, perhaps aching to release addictions, not really wanting to die while they are living, feeling drained and disconnected, there is always going to be common truths no matter what anyone ever tells you--we all long to be loved, valued and respected.

The Science of Belief … In a Nutshell

Many people disregard the role of “belief” in shaping our lives as being some sort of “New Age” malarkey, meaningless nonsense. They emphasize the science of epigenetics that clearly states that environment controls genetics, which in turn, determines the character of our lives.

Consider this story: Mutt and Jeff are two twenty-something year-old friends, who grew up together in side-by-side houses. Walking down a sidewalk, all of a sudden, a harmless garter snake slithers out of the grass and crosses the sidewalk in front of the two friends. Jeff sees the snake and is consciously excited by the beautiful animal that crossed his path. Next to him, Mutt on observing the same snake, goes into a state of fear and releases a burst of stress hormones. Fortunately, Mutt’s heart is in good shape, if it had been compromised, the sight of the snake could have even caused him to have a heart attack.

Both Mutt and Jeff are in the exact same environment and see the same stimulus, the snake. However, their responses are radically different. Conventional insights describe epigenetics as the science of how “environment” controls behavior and genetic activity. Based on how the tissue culture environment controlled the behavior of my cultured stem cells in experiments are carried out over 50 years ago, I recognize this to be true. The big question is, “Why did these friends display such significantly different behaviors in the exact same environment?”

Outgrowing Your Created Self

If you are currently grieving the loss of who you used to be, you need to know that you are not that person any more. When you can’t continue to have the same old conversations that you used to have, and you can’t continue to hang out with people that you really don’t resonate with, and you can’t continue to perpetuate situations or scenarios in your life that aren’t loving, you are outgrowing the created self. 

When you outgrow your created self and your identities, you begin to discover who you are beyond it all. There is a grieving process that happens as you begin to break free from the identity and the confines of the limited self. In this phase of transitioning away from the created self, it’s not that it needs to be healed, changed, fixed or improved, it’s just that you have outgrown it.

Trusting Your Intuition: THE SIXTH ENERGY!

Intuition — our sixth energy — is a natural part of all of us — although many of us were raised to repress these “gut hits” in favor of logic and reason! 

But when you don’t honor and trust your gut, your creative energy can be misdirected and you will make choices that you may regret later. Instead of working on behalf of your imagination and vision, it shows you evidence of stories full of mistakes,threats and detours, contracting instead of expanding your view of what is possible. The key is to balance this energy so you can see infinite potential, picking up on ideas, vibes, and messages that might be otherwise lost.

How To Experience Renewal

Renewal holds an immediate appeal. In marketing, it is the magic word motivating buyers of vitamins, diets, skin creams, and exercise machines.  But in reality, your existence depends on every cell in your body knowing with perfect precision how to renew itself. There are hardly any cells in your body today that were there when you were born, and certain types of cells (skin, stomach lining, and red blood corpuscles) renew themselves very quickly, in a matter of weeks.

These well-known medical facts point to a hidden secret, for it isn’t physical renewal that holds the key. Imagine a house where the bricks fly in and out of the walls, yet the building is always standing. Its blueprint remains intact even as physical objects constantly change. Your body’s blueprint remains intact thanks to the invisible intelligence contained in every cell.

Instead of looking to DNA for the source of this intelligence—DNA is just another piece of the physical picture—the secret lies with how your body uses its intelligence. You can renew yourself by consciously using the same principles that keep your body in a natural state of renewal.

Learn to Go Quiet

We can learn to go quiet in the middle of what would ordinarily be a psychological riot going on within us. The frantic search for any answer – being suddenly caught up in a stream of thoughts and feelings trying to figure out what to do with some frustration – turning to those frantic answers, looking for them, is like turning on a fan and hoping to straighten out the papers on your desk.

We mustn’t be afraid to Go Quiet in those moments. In much the same way as we look out and see something beautiful, we can look interiorly and see that inside of us there is a scramble going on for some kind of security, and to know in that moment that it is not who we really are that’s afraid of what’s going on.

Here’s something that’s stunning. I remember the first time I heard it and what it did to me, and how my mind actually went quiet when I heard it. Listen to this idea.

Internal Weather

What if the weather outside your window is actually a reflection of the weather conditions inside you? What if your perceptional framework for viewing life shapes everything, including how you see physical conditions such as rain, snow, clouds, and sunshine that appear to be outside you? What if nothing is quite as it seems to be to the mind? What if the world is as you are?

Ever since I was a small child, I have carried within me an at-times-overwhelming grief about the nature of life, death, and eternity. The “human condition” terrified me; infinity terrified me. Late at night, I described my fear to my mother as “the world goes on forever and ever.” She comforted me and tried to help me learn to distract myself with happier thoughts. But the core unease never really disappeared. In college, I found infinity hiding inside my astronomy and philosophy textbooks. Fear of death and whatever came after was always hovering in the back of my consciousness. In my 30s, I turned to a spiritual quest to try to resolve it. That was the beginning of a shift in my perception.

The Meaning of Resurrection Especially in These Times

First you must realize you are asleep, then you wake up, then you die so you may be born. You cannot be born until you die and you cannot die until you wake up.
  -  
Jungian psychology


There are traditions across the world which celebrate Easter and the joy of Christ being risen. Storytelling is one of the most ancient natural medicines we have for the healing of our hearts and our soul. The Easter story is so powerful yet it deepens who we are in our humanity when we allow the story to be personal for ourselves. How can we allow the Christ consciousness to be born within us? 

During these unpredictable and uncertain times we are living in, we are all called to rise up. We have a profound, once in a lifetime moment to seize this window of a universal time out to quiet the noise in our minds and allow a greater connection of God to be experienced in our lives.

Rest in Center

Are you all over the place?

The Practice:
Rest in center.

Why?

Gravity and entropy are powerful processes in the natural world. Gravity draws things together, toward a center, while entropy scatters them into disorder. In much the same way, in our own lives, some things bring us to center, while others disturb and disperse us.

In terms of centering, be aware of your whole body as you take a long slow breath, or think of something you’re glad about. You’ll probably feel more at home in yourself, more drawn into your own core rather than feeling like Garfield the cartoon cat, spreadeagled up against a pane of glass.

In terms of feeling scattered, notice what it’s like to do multi-tasking, the mind drawn in several directions at once. Or what it’s like to open your email in-box and see twenty or more new ones calling to you. Walking down the street or through a mall, see how your attention moves out to various objects of desire: this attractive person, that shiny car, this pretty sweater, that cool new cell phone, and so on: for a few seconds at a time if not longer, you’re dispersed out and away from your calm, clear, autonomous center. And if you have any tendencies toward over-eating, -drinking, -sexing, -shopping, -etc., this dispersal gets more extreme.

You Are an Answer, Not a Problem

We need to talk. 

I know that running around, having people buy into your limitations, or even you buying into your limitations has been your way of fitting in. Why? Because everyone around you is suffering and this is how you find a way to belong.  

I see you beyond these limitations and I see you as love. Who you really are is light beyond description, the most beautiful golden sensitizing light you’ve ever seen, emanating out of all that you are in every direction. What you represent on this planet is a unique possibility and potential that only you can fulfill. 

You are at a crossroads of either continuing to pretend that you are limited, that you are a problem, and, either you’re going to apologize for your presence on this planet, or you are going to finally allow today to be the day to accept who you are, accept what dwells within you and set yourself free.
