3 Subjects Schools Could Teach to Improve the World

1071 words (before bio) 

As a former teacher who spent 7 years in the system, one of the things that really bugs me about today's schools is the undercurrent of fear and control-based social conditioning that they subject our children to.  Yes, our children do learn valuable skills and information, but often at the cost of their overall health and prosperity.  Our schools, while they do indeed try, ultimately fail to fully harness the power of today’s young minds because…

When there is darkness, there is light…

In Toltec wisdom, you are the artist of your dream. Your dream being your life here on earth. It is you that has the gift to brush the colors you desire across the canvas. Although, if this concept is new to you, there are details and work to get to that wonderful place. Many of us are already on our path of enlightenment, empowering ourselves to be open to higher levels of awareness and mindfulness. There are many belief systems and practices available to us, that resonates with each one of…

Unheard Sounds - Do they Bless us or Curse us?

Unheard Sounds

Do they Bless or Curse us?!


Vibrations constantly change us! Many are so tiny in volume or out of our hearing range, that we are totally unaware of them.


Tiny sounds may only change us a tiny bit, but when we are constantly bombarded, their impact adds up. Think of the “seemingly inconsequential” influence of the Colorado River, having no effect on the rocks, until you look up and see…

Limpieza de tus Espacios para Renovar la Energía

Nuestro hogar debería ser nuestro espacio físico seguro y sagrado, un lugar de remanso en donde pudiéramos descansar, recuperarnos, renovarnos, inspirarnos y sanarnos, ¡nuestro oasis en medio del desierto!

Sin embargo pocos sabemos cómo crear y mantener este espacio limpio de todas las energías que promueven el…

Healing Your Relationship to Food

     Food is energy. A poor diet affects your physical body in detrimental ways and it affects your energy health as well. The physical body absorbs necessary vital life force energy from the energy body. If your energy body is weak, the physical body will eventually become weak and out of balance. An unhealthy diet creates a vicious cycle as it weakens both the physical self and the energy body.  

     Live food has an…

The Epicurean revival

As the annals of history have it, in the sixth century Emperor Justinian had all the schools of philosophy that competed with Christianity finally closed. This was the last we heard of the Epicurean School, whose tradition had remained culturally vibrant for seven centuries. Epicurus had been among the first to propose the atom—2,300 years ago—the social contract as a foundation for the rule of law, and the possibility of an empirical process of pursuit of happiness: a science of happiness.…

Peace in the Springtime

We are rounding the corner towards the celebration of Earth Day.  

For me, Peace and the Environment are closely tied.

Discover Your Sun and Discover Yourself

In some ways, discovering who you are is a lifelong journey, and no matter how much you think you know about yourself, there is more to be found. Astrologically, this endless journey begins with your Sun.

The Sun versus the Moon and Rising

The Sun represents your inner, true self, the you that comes out when you're around those you know best. This is different from your Rising, which represents your outer self, the way you come across, and the facade…

Clear Mind, Clear Mission

“To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” ~ Buddha

You are working on a project with a strict deadline, but you just can’t seem to focus. Maybe thoughts about your next big idea, the weekend ahead, or even longstanding family issues start creeping in. Then you begin to worry: how will you finish this project on time?

It can be very disconcerting and it can happen to the best of us. Although chronic…

4 Opportunities to Heal Into Wellness

Each one of us has the potential to heal into wellness. I recognize this is a huge proclamation. Personally speaking, I know this to be true. The proof is in the pudding. After being diagnosed at the age of fourteen, undergoing eighteen surgeries and forty years of a disabling neurological disease, I stepped out of the medical box and opened to the world of spirituality, metaphysics and alternative healing modalities. Today, not only have I transcended the physical manifestation of…

Do you feel like a puppet? Lost control of your own life?

Is someone else holding your puppet strings?  Do you feel sometimes like that person has control over you?  Just by the way he or she makes you feel?  If so, then you are likely in a controlled and abusive relationship with a person who is emotionally manipulative.

It isn’t always easy to spot the signs.  But if you think back, do you find that you have ignored your own feelings as a result of the emotions someone else is delivering?  That your feelings about the situation don’t seem…

Thoughts Are Energy

Most of us spend much of our waking hours deeply in thought. We think about the things that confront us on a daily basis, we recall events from the past, and we contemplate the future. But most people regard their thoughts as a private conversation they have with themselves—something that has no effect on the world around them.

But my spirit guide Albert, who took me on a series of out-of-body adventures to explore the universe, as described in…

Choosing The Light of Your True Nature, Part 1


I grew up in a house full of chocolate lovers. My dad was the main catalyst in this desire, encouraging me, my mother and my two sisters to choose something chocolate any time dessert was an option, be it in the form of ice cream, cake, pudding or cookies.

Until my mid-teens, I was convinced that chocolate was the best choice for me in any…

Well-Wishing and the Wishing Well

Well-Wishing and the Wishing Well

By Kathy Custren


Reach back, way back into the recesses of your being. Depending on your soul age, you may have to reach back a few lifetimes or two, to the point where most useful water was obtained from a well. In the very olden days, entire settlements grew in number around the town well, where most everyone would go to retrieve a few containers of the precious resource.


Perhaps it…
