New Energies Of Possibilities

Since life does not go backward, we wake up and get in touch with the possibilities of how we can begin to honor who we really are right now. We pull out the list in our shielded and protected heart and allow the memories to resurface of the individuals we longed to be when we used to play on the playground.

Trust In the Perfection of the Design

Human beings in general have been convinced that they are not capable in one area or more than one area. That programming and conditioning began when you were born. You were born into a family, a religion, a spirituality, a way of living, a community where the messaging, you are incapable, was continually reinforced.

6 Tools For Spiritual Alignment

The beginning of a new calendar year holds a sacred and potent energy.  January may be over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t continue to use this inspiring energy to continue navigating your spiritual journey with confidence throughout the whole year. 

February is the perfect time to reflect on your intentions, what you want your year to look like and how you want to feel about your life. In my Vision Board Challenge last month we focused on cultivating a feeling state in order to bring our visions to life. But beyond creating a vision board, how do we consciously work toward that desired feeling state in a way that feels abundant?

Enlightenment Is Totally Normal: Here’s Why

In surprising ways, the notion of enlightenment is important in everyday life. In the West, the word “enlightenment” remains fuzzy, and most people would consider it exotic, foreign, difficult to reach, and reserved only for people with strong spiritual motivation and tremendous self-discipline.

If all of these assumptions are wrong, everything surrounding enlightenment would have to shift. In fact, each of these assumptions occupies a spectrum. There are yogic teachings that require strong motivation and enormous discipline, but there are also paths to enlightenment that are much easier, and these fit everyday lifestyles quite well.

The Most Involved Are The Most Evolved

I have always loved the statement “The most involved are the most evolved.” I have experienced this as truth so many times in meeting people throughout the country and learning how valuable their spiritual path is to them and the energy they put into it.

Stephen Covey says, “It is easy to say ‘no’ when deep within there is a burning desire to say ‘Yes.’” A number of years ago, I realized that I longed to have my spiritual path be a priority to me and yet I always had reasons to be BUSY and put it off. I lived in the them / me world. Let me get everything else in order and then I will create this special time for myself. Let me help them and then I can help myself.

Resolve to S.N.A.P. Into Self-Compassion

Try This Practice for More Calm, Less Stress in 2022


Practicing mindfulness in everyday life can help us feel less distracted, reduce anxiety, improve memory and concentration, and better manage crises like dealing with the pandemic, research shows. Could it even help us keep New Year’s resolutions?

I believe the answer is yes, when we make self-compassion part of our mindfulness practice.

Studies show that people who are compassionate toward themselves are more likely to try again when they fail to achieve a goal. They don’t see failure as a blow to their self-concept. They recognize that everyone fails, and view failure is an opportunity to grow.

Your Body Is One Big Psychic Antenna

Did you know that you’re already equipped with one of the most fundamental pieces of equipment to provide you with an endless supply of psychic information and guidance?

It’s your body! You need look no further than your own physical body for answers.

I got my first real lesson in listening to my body when I was involved in a near-fatal automobile accident. You probably remember me talking about this in my first book Born Knowing. The shock to my system from the accident resulted in my energy centers or chakras being forced open. I soon realized that my abilities, which I’d so often pushed away, were back with a strength and intensity that I’d never experienced before.

Inside the Rainbow—Book Excerpt*

There are at least 7.8 billion ways of seeing a rainbow, each one perfect and true. A scientist sees refraction of light. A poet sees transcendent beauty. A child sees magic. A spiritual seeker sees the gateway to heaven. Someone who has suffered great loss—a loved one, a home, a job—may see a sign of hope in the midst of their pain. What if our individual experiences of the world, of Nature, are how we discover meaning in life, how we connect with our souls and find God, or Spirit? What if spiritual connection is not about struggling to understand mysteries but instead just opening our eyes to the extraordinary beauty before us? Step inside the rainbow itself, and a world of vibrant color and divine light opens up all around you.

Let Your “Higher Self ” Be Your Guide

We’re all here to develop as individualized expressions of God. We gather and commune with others in different ways to remind ourselves of that very nature. We remind each other that we are Divine and that we’re God’s Beloved. And we recognize the crucial nature of being true to ourselves, and of becoming that authentic self.

Spread Your Wings And Fly!

Are you now at a point where you have broken free of the prison of the personality? If so, you are swimming in this ocean of potential and possibilities and from this place the highest manifestation of your life. 

I don’t know about you, but I’ve heard spiritual prophecy in my life and I believe we are actually alive at that pinnacle point of prophecy, that time on the planet where individuals like you and I, will once again return to our natural state of being. And in doing so, we shift the course of our collective history as a planet.

Breathing Lessons

If God resides within the breath, what does it mean when you are “short of breath,” with inflammation in the lungs? That was my status, post chemo—another one of the side effects, which it takes 4–6 weeks to resolve. Meanwhile, my breathing was slower, my walking slower, everything slower. Was this God’s way of getting me to slow down (even though my life is not fast-paced)? Perhaps, the message here is “press the pause button on everything and just be in the stillness of the breath, in which God is ever-present.” Nothing is more important. “You’ve dropped all the pieces of your identity; now just rest in the absence of identification, the presence of divinity.” This is what I am hearing, what I am receiving. Another gift of this experience. Because when you find yourself struggling to breathe (as I did one night recently), you are awakened to the slender thread that holds you to life: one single breath at a time is your lifeline to aliveness. And to God.

The Enlightened Rebel: BUMPER STICKER TRUTHS

This story changed my life and I trust it will offer some insight for you as well. It calls us to a greater purpose as an Enlightened Rebel.


A lady was driving down main street, rushing because she was having a very busy day. She was coming upon a traffic light which was turning yellow and when the guy in front of her slammed on his brakes, she was furious. She blew her horn a few times, did some obscene sign language out the window, and acted extremely rageful. By this time a police officer saw what was going on, pulled up behind her, and ultimately pulled her over and took her to jail. In a couple of hours, he came to her jail cell and told her she was free to leave. She said, “I appreciate it, sir, however I still don’t know what I did wrong.” He said “Well, you have to see the experience from my point of view. On the back of your car, you have all these bumper stickers like ‘Let there be peace of earth’, ‘Global oneness’, ‘Love the world’, ‘Mom’s club against anger’ and I assumed whoever was driving could not be the cars’ owner but a thief who was driving a stolen car.”

Your Never Ending Truth

Even though presence is becoming an experience and reality for so many people, there are still many points of resistance or rejection.

Another entry point into the truth is that the absolute nature of reality, meaning the total truth about life, is that you are an infinite presence. You are infinite energy.  Even though this is the truth, the never ending truth or foundation of who you are, many of you are resisting it. 

Here is the main point of resistance you may be experiencing:

The Enlightened Rebel: ACTION WHEN IT MATTERS

Through the years, when someone asked me if I was a person of violence, I would be very quick to say ”no.”


I had only hit one boy when I was in elementary school and it startled both of us so much that we both remember it to this day! I have come to understand through the teachings of Gandhi and his grandson Arun that so much of our violence is passive. It’s the way we are unwilling to speak when we see something absolutely wrong or not in alignment with our values.

It’s when we get angry about a situation and we allow it to take us to the level of the violence, rather than approaching our anger as an Enlightened Rebel. Anger is good medicine. When used as a spiritual human practice, you learn to transcend the emotion
to a place of proactive action. That is when you have discovered the mystery of what life is longing for.

Body and Soul

The body sometimes assists the soul’s journey with quite dramatic insistence. After I completed a third chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer, my body let my doctors know very clearly that it had reached its limit. I had allergic reactions in the form of an inflamed rash/bumps all over my body, edema (fluid retention), and breakthrough bleeding beneath the skin (to name just a few). Treatment 4 was cancelled. This particular segment of my spiritual “firewalk” was complete.  My body is now being given time to reestablish equilibrium and prepare for radiation in a few weeks.

Importance Of Community As The Year Comes To A Close!

Community is one of the most valuable aspects of a full, spiritual life. The people we surround ourselves with can support us in our growth and transformation and can help us live as our highest selves. 

As the year comes to a close, it’s a great time to reflect on your relationship to community. Do you have a community you can lean into during this time, or is it a time for you to prioritize making and nurturing new connections?

Find Stillness

What doesn’t change?

The Practice:
Find stillness.

Why?

Things keep changing. The clock ticks, the day unfolds, trees grow, leaves turn brown, hair turns gray, children grow up and leave home, attention skitters from this to that, the cookie is delicious but then it’s all gone, you’re mad about something for a while and then get over it, consciousness streams on and on and on.

Many changes are certainly good. Most people are glad to put middle school behind them. I’m still happy about shifting thirty years ago from single to married. Painkillers, flush toilets, and the internet seem like pretty good ideas. It’s lovely to watch grass waving in the wind or a river passing. Fundamentally, if there were no change, nothing could happen, reality would be frozen forever. I once asked my friend Tom what he thought God was and he said “possibility.”

The Secret of Life

Every time you inhale and exhale, you are breathing the spirit of life, which is God. That’s the secret: The breath is God. In many languages, the word for spirit is the same as for breath. We hold this wisdom within the depths of our souls because it is what we are made of. Yes, we are human, but our humanity is composed of divine spirit. Your physical form is a sacred temple within which God experiences life on Earth. When you breathe, God is breathing. When you look through your eyes, God is seeing. When you look in another’s eyes, you are both gazing into pools of divinity. The only problem is that we have forgotten. We think that breathing is merely a physical phenomenon that arrives and departs with birth and death.

Enter the Peaceable Kingdom of Now

Either we are at peace wherever we are -- because this peace goes with us -- or what we call our peace is a product of some pleasurable condition over which we have tem­porary command. In situations like the latter, though largely uncon­scious to us, we sense that our peace is conditional. We know that we must work to keep certain prevailing conditions in place in order to remain at peace. And this, of course, means that we will resist any movement that threatens our desired estate. Clearly such a ten­tative peace is not true peace at all, because it dwells side by side, in league with an unseen conflict that is a basic requirement of its very existence!
