The power of the ability to recognize our heart’s desire in this life lives inside our dreams and actions. It can sometimes require great courage and faith to continue on without support from a friendly soul system surrounding us. Intuitive signs, messages and signals can get crossed especially if there is a dominant energy near defining us in negative or destructive ways. We have to…

Integrating Our Fragmented Selves and Society

Abstract: It is first necessary to go within and integrate the fragmented parts of our self into a cohesive state of unity, so that our mind, body, and spirit flow together in synergy. In such a state whatever we do is an act of worship, whatever we think is an act of compassion and love, and we are away from the grip of egotistical efforts. In this state of calm mind we can then serve the world selflessly as the very embodiments of God. Soul by soul we will move towards…

Telling the Truth Without Blame and Judgment

When we tell the truth in a responsible, respectful and non-blaming way that doesn't make the other person wrong, and acknowledges our part in a breakdown, a remarkable thing often happens. Judgments dissolve, resentment melts, and we feel closer to and forgiving of the other person and often of ourselves as well.  Sometimes of course, they aren't particularly happy to hear our feelings and may feel put down regardless of how careful we are to express ourselves non-judgmentally. If we can…

The Wider Definition

“People may spend their whole lives climbing the ladder of success only to find, once they reach the top, that the ladder is leaning against the wrong wall.” Thomas Merton.


The notion that money can’t buy happiness is deeply ingrained in the minds of most of us. Most of us have heard words to that effect since we were children, from parents, teachers, clergymen, and lots of other folks. There is a difference…

We Are Only Human After All - A Path of Self Discovery

If we believe in the evolutionary process, is it a fact that human beings would rank among the top of all species when it comes to the food chain, social interactions, complex reasoning, communications, cognitive thinking, mindfulness, perceiving and a very high intelligence scale overall? Are humans not at the top of the pile or the "peak" of intelligence for all life on this planet, as we know it? Some would argue or disagree with that perception or narrative,…

True Love

When we don’t love ourselves, we abandon ourselves in our relationship, because we think we need our partner to complete us, and we are afraid to lose them.  But if we are true to ourselves, we won’t lose anything that is real, and we can grow together in a way that supports both partners to be the best of themselves.  When our relationship is no longer based in need, but rather on a desire to give, we can allow the other person to evolve and grow, and then we gain the freedom to do the…

Free Yourself by Getting Committed

Corey and Maya were experiencing a great deal of tension and frequently fighting about issues both small and large. Their real problem wasn’t about the issues that kept cropping up. The root of their problem was that Corey was not really committed in their marriage. Sure, he tried to keep the promises and vows that he and Maya agreed would define their relationship, but that was more a matter of honoring the word than understanding the spirit of their agreements. For Corey, most of the time,…

4 Simple Words To Up Your Manifesting Game in '18

So, let’s not make any mistake-co-creation, manifesting, well this stuff takes a little bit of work. It’s not the watered down, "just feel good and think good" version so rampant in pop culture and these 4 words alone are not going to turn you into an all-powerful, infallible manifestor. BUT I have found that these 4 words have immediately shifted the flow of my manifesting to create a more open path.

These 4 words affirm our commitment. Our vision. Our resolution. They tell the…

Creating Space

Inhale. Retain. Exhale.


Breath is what sustains us, it’s what moves us, it’s a core pillar to life and yoga, but what happens in between the breath? What is left at the end of the exhale? Often it’s there we find space, and in that space truth.


As we enter into a new year we yearn to create change, we want to let go and move on, but in order for something new to be created we must first create and hold space. In the same way darkness needs light creativity…
