Does Life Get in the Way of Our Spiritual Path?

In one of my recent weekly conversations a student asked me:

“I feel that a big part of being on a spiritual path is focusing on the divine, but how does one stay on that path when they are just trying to pay the bills?”

This is indeed an issue that arises in us all, and in many ways, it relates to a series of misplaced perceptions and clichés surrounding the nature of a spiritual path. The underlying truth of the matter is:

Destination….Destiny!

At the age of 32, I collided with my destiny.

After a life of searching for answers; secretly believing that love existed, but having never felt it; having spent many of my life years behind the heavy bars of very, very dark depression; having the constant experience of being aware I was asleep, but not being able to wake up; feeling like I was dying in a desolate and never-ending landscape of hopelessness… life brought me a gift.

BE The ONE That Cares about YOU!

Have you ever felt that you just so wanted someone, anyone to care about you?
Did you wish when you were young that someone would care about your talents, your gifts, or your pain?

Do you ever wish that someone would come along to help you? Really care and really help?

Gently Stepping Into Love

I talk about love often. I work very hard to create a vivid picture about love, the heart, what it all means and how it all works. The other day, one of my students exclaimed that it was simply too hard for her to figure out how to focus love on other people. She explained that her mistrust of people was too strong. Her heart had been broken too many times.

Be your Own Advocate!

Be your own advocate! Care about you and be grateful to yourself for your very own help!

In every single situation in your life, you are your own main resource for support, motivation, care, and consideration. Sometimes, we sit on the sidelines of life waiting for someone to care about us enough, so that we can care for ourselves.

Making Decisions

In order to really talk about how to know when and how we are making a mistake, we would have to talk about pre-destiny, the grand design and the role of the Divine.

This story is about the simple, yet difficult, choices that each of us face every day, and the process we go through to decide which path we want to take in any given moment.

Jumping Into The Abyss…And Learning How to Fly

In one of my favorite set of books as a teen, the stories always included a part where the main character was faced with the challenge of ‘jumping into the abyss’.

It was a powerful metaphor for permanently leaving behind an old unwanted self. Clearly, I mentally understood the wisdom of this. At the same time, I was controlled by my insane attachment to the problems, worries, and conflicts that I called ‘me’. Whenever they became threatened in any way, I immediately fell back within the cocoon of my own making.

Feeling Separate on the Spiritual Path

Today I received an email from someone struggling to figure out if they want to be on a spiritual path. This person suggested that if they were to truly undertake a spiritual path, they will be alienated from everyone because not everyone understands spirituality. They believe that if they truly begin to change then they will feel different, and above everyone. This is something that I have heard before, and not just in spirituality.

Making The Impossible, POSSIBLE

When I was 20, I was in a serious head-on collision car accident while I had my (very new) baby in the car with me. I was driving home from work, and usually, my husband (at the time) and I commuted together. But, for a reason I don’t now remember, that night, we drove home separately. My daughter was strapped into her car seat, next to me in our Pinto.

Growing your Healer Self

Growing your Healer self is a fun and adventurous process filled with questions, challenges and even riddles!

After I wrote about Empaths and practices for releasing pain, many people responded with what seemed to be a number one concern, This concern was stated very clearly – they do not want to release the pain they are carrying because they don’t want it to be available to harm anyone else.
