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…

Teaching Non-violence in a Violent World

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will. ~ Romans 12:2 I saw a post today on the importance of teaching non-violence in schools. However, when we [...]

Mother Nature Does Not Differentiate

Lately, I've been confronted a lot with "It's the 1% of rich in the world who are responsible for all the world's problems, environmentally and other ways."  There seems to be a lot of blame and not much responsibility for we, the public, as consumers. We are 99% after all. That gives us a lot [...]

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.

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.

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…

What is Miracle-Mindedness?

In essence, miracle-mindedness is the purified state of mind that the masters achieved, such as Buddha and Christ. Such “miracle-mindedness” is a way of viewing abundance and miracles in terms of having nothing to do with owning or having anything, because in the spiritual dimension there is nothing to own or to have.  Knowing this [...]

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.

Are You In A Relationship With Unpredictable Rewards?

In 2008, I had a client who explained to me there was once an experiment that was done with pigeons (I have since found out it the experiment was actually done with rats and that this process is called "Intermittent Reinforcement" see here >>). She explained that In this experiment, the pigeons were divided into [...]

From Chief Avrol Looking Horse

Humans are self-indulgent slaves to their desires. This is why nature is out of balance. It causes man to sabotage himself. This was posted to my page today (I removed the top part and just kept the message from Chief Avrol. The following is from CHIEF ARVOL LOOKING HORSE: Nov. 8th Tepco will begin moving [...]

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….

Have We Not Got Enough?

by Peaceful Warrior. It never ceases to amaze me just how much luxury we all currently have, both material objects and levels of longevity. Well of course that is not the case for the majority actually, though to us in the west it would appear to be the case. The real truth is that almost 80% of the world’s populations have very little of these commodities, and their lives are often cut prematurely short through hunger and disease. Kind of odd wouldn’t you say? That 20% of the people of the world have more than enough and may not even realize their good fortunes. A conundrum indeed, do we need more or do we need less (to share more)?

Nature: The Missing Piece In Our Spirituality?

There are many ideals we hold as true within the new-age movement, which developing an ability to connect more with Nature might help us better put these ideals into practice.  For instance, the more we can learn to connect with Nature, the more we can connect to an energy of ‘wholeness.’…

Redefining Abundance

In the world today there are many concepts being referred to which it is difficult to know what they truly mean or entail. For example; what does it really mean to be ‘love and light?’ Is it only something we think of or intend with our minds? Is it more than this? Is there more understanding we can gain through examination? It is the same with concepts such as Oneness, Higher Frequency, Unity, etc.

The Colors of Abundance

Abundance can mean different things to different people. While www.thefreedictionary.com defines abundance as “a great and plentiful amount,” “fullness to overflowing,” and “affluence; wealth,” each of these definitions is open to interpretation as well. What is wealth to one person may be valueless to another, and vice versa. So, if we could categorize each kind of abundance by connecting it to a color, what would that color be, and what would make each category different? What would each color type say about the individual who is attracted to it?
