Breathwork for Increased Well-Being

The way you breathe affects your emotions and vitality since it sends signals to your autonomic nervous system–a component of the peripheral nervous system that regulates automatic body functions such as blood flow and your heartbeat. Breathing exercises can balance and relax you, leaving you calm and centered. They can also provide an energy boost when you are weary and enliven your mind…

Four Fast Ways to Improve Your Life (Which You Keep Forgetting)

Your brain holds a vast array of self-help techniques you’ve picked up over the years. Many of them affected you positively when you first encountered them. Sometimes, you even thought, “from now on I’m going to use this method and my life will be better for doing so.” In reality, though, you forgot to do all kinds of things that would have made life easier and happier. Here are four vital tips you need to remember from now on if you are to reap the rewards they offer…

Mindfulness in Meditation: Learning Not to Scratch the Itch

If you practice mindfulness, you might understand what is meant by not scratching an itch. When witnessing your thoughts and feelings, you detach from them. To reach this state, you need to overcome the urge to engage with sensations or your internal voice.

What does the Healers of the Earth Oracle Have to Say about Climate Change?

The first card I draw from the Healers of the Earth Oracle is the “Fungi Funeral” card. This card points to humanity moving away from a consciousness of self-indulgence to replace it with moderation. Many people are embracing more environmental lifestyles or are becoming simpler so this is a process that is already in motion. It is a card of releasing addictions and temptations…

Becoming Collectively Conscious: Understanding the Law of Supply and Demand

In today’s world, many of us may have a hard time believing that our well-intentioned choices can affect a larger picture in a positive way. Likewise, in the same theme, we find it hard to believe that our less well-intentioned choices matter in the greater scheme of things. However, our choices may have more of an effect than we think, such as in the case of changing trends, which occur all the time. The force behind those changing trends is the public, usually starting with one person. We, the public, have the power to change and inspire trends due to a law we can learn about in any economics class: the Law of Supply and Demand.

If Your Relationship Moves Too Fast It Might Not Last

Are you feeling disillusioned in love because you find yourself attracted to ardent admirers who sweep you off your feet, move a relationship forward really fast, but before you know it its over or they are giving you the brush off? Recently I had someone ask me for advice what to do in this kind of situation. Here is the best advice I could think of…

Watch Out For Being The “Transitional” Lover!

Be on alert if someone asks you to “wait” for them because they are “not ready.” A transitional love may say they need “time,” or may only seem ready for a “friends with benefits” affair. Some may go through periods of contact followed by withdrawal; leaving you wondering what happened.

Twin Flame Philosophies And The Potential Problems That Arise

Working as an advisor in the new-age industry, I can end up talking to many individuals, both as clients and friends. As a result, I’ve listened to a multitude of individuals and seen how certain new-age ideas have been employed. I’ve also observed the detrimental effects they have had (if any). If consistent patterns arise, I may begin to question, “What is it about certain beliefs; that instead of bringing people more peace and contentment, they are making a great number of individuals feel ungrounded, codependent, addicted, anxious, depressed, etc?”

Common Traits of Individuals Who Are In An Unrequited Love Relationship With A Perceived “Twin Flame”

Many individuals who tend to idealistically romanticize about a “twin flame” relationship with someone who “runs” or is an unrequited love can have similar characteristics. Some of these include: a romantic at heart, very trusting, empathic and naive, prey to people who use, deceive and take advantage of them, feel swept up easily, attracted to strong personalities that create a lot of drama for them, feel bored or restless in a settled relationship, and more…

“Twin Flames” & Fast Food Spirituality

In today’s world, the internet is overflowing with information. All of this information we receive can be overwhelming, or even hold us back, if we do not know how to filter it through discerning what truly serves our best interests and what does not, including when it comes to forming healthy relationships….

11:11, Biblical Prophecy and the 11th Hour Workers

Many people from all walks of life have begun to see 11:11 in various places, especially on their digital clocks, phones and computers. As this begins to happen more frequently, many of us may begin to ask ourselves “What does this mean?” and “Why am I seeing this now?” While there are many explanations for the phenomenon, what kept coming to me was that it was connected to the idea of an 11th hour and the parable of the 11th Hour Workers (Matthew 20)…

Disinformation in the New-Age

Disinformation is nothing new, even in the new age. Due to the fact that many of us hold the ancient masters in high regard, it is natural for us, as new-agers, to want to portray or believe that our ancient teachers would support the new-age movement. After all, we founded this movement, in part, based on the wisdom of their teachings. We’ve done this through taking a little of one masters teachings, a little of another’s, and we’ve packaged it all together as a philosophy that we feel is good to live by. Yes, there are huge differences; but, we circumvent around these differences through rationalizing that we live in different times…

When Criticism and Slander Are Used as Weapons

Sometimes, when slander is used as a weapon, the intention is to psychologically “isolate” a person so that receiving support will prove difficult. This can happen in dysfunctional families, abusive relationships, divorces, political campaigns, or corporate takeovers. The main intention of the person doing the slandering is to get the public or others to lose faith in a person; to stop supporting them so that support can be maintained for the person who is engaging in slander.

“Ascension Symptoms” and Finding Balance

Ascension symptoms (see a list here>>) are typically symptoms that happen as our kundalini rises. But, these conditions shouldn’t need to become permanent fixtures in our lives, leading to diagnoses such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, food and chemical sensitivities, ADHD and more. So, what else might we need to know if we find ourselves experiencing “ascension symptoms” over a long period of time?

Law of Attraction: Entering A Collective Consciousness

We have been falling into the illusion that we are powerful because we are manifesting “things” and “creations” within a “box.” What does this “box” serve and manifest? Only when you attempt to break free of that “box” will you realize exactly what you are manifesting yourself into.

Finding the Lotus in the Muddy Pond

If we were to see the lotus as representing our purity of self and the muddy pond as representing the thought forms that clouds us from accessing that purity, then one great way to weed through the mud would be to employ some form of meditation. While breathing exercises and blank-mind meditation have much to offer, the below offers a guided meditation for those who feel more comfortable using visualization as a tool…

How Does Our Collective Way of Living Keep Us Stuck At A Child-like Level of Functioning?

When thinking about how we live at a personal level, it might be easy for most of us to place ourselves in the “adult” category. However, this article concerns how our collective way of living, being and believing keeps us stuck in the “child-like” category. How so? Because how we function as a collective tends to leave us completely dependent upon external parents without being able to “grow up” and gain independence and true freedom from them.

Heaven is Where the Heart Is: Finding the True Meaning of Abundance in Our “Enoughness”

We live in an age of overconsumption, over-activity, and over-promotionalism. Sometimes, it appears that almost everyone has something to promote, buy, or sell. Of course, our advancement is complicated by a multitude of spiritual books and gurus who tell us how to thrive and survive in this age–and how to become a product for sale within it–rather than how to transcend it. Thus, we end up subliminally taught that to be unsuccessful in the material world–according to this consciousness of consumerism—means that we are “less than” in some way. We are taught this means that we have “blocks” to clear as if it were a disease….
