It is a common tendency for people who are newly divorced to want to hurl themselves into a another relationship. So many factors are at work and the ego will use all of them to convince us that our current situation is unfavorable and should be resisted at all cost. It uses fear to get us to do anything but to accept our present situation at hand. Instead of dealing with the aftermath of the divorce, instead of facing our somewhat hidden and repressed feelings of fear, guilt, anger,…Continue
The past couple of weeks has been full of references to gurus and the guru-disciple relationship. What is a guru, if such a thing exists? The definition in the Oxford Dictionary states a guru is ‘a Hindu spiritual teacher’ or ‘an influential teacher or popular expert’ (from http://oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/guru, accessed 25 July 2013). These are the people that so many seekers flock to go and see, spending…Continue
Does “absent” healing work? In other words can you or I act as a healing channel sending focused energy to someone at a distance, someone not physically present, and still have a positive effect on them? Can a lessening of their difficulty or perhaps a cure for any discomfort they are experiencing be manifested?
Healing energy can be sent over great distances and arrive exactly as it was sent; however, there are a variety of things that can happen at the point of…Continue
Third in line to become the King of England, the new Royal Baby was born an 8 Lifepath. This number is associated with money, power, position, status and success. That seems quite appropriate. Rest assured, Prince George will be an ambitious person who will be goal orientated and self-disciplined. He has strong leadership abilities and even more so, problem…Continue

How do you know if you are in love?
1. It feels easy.
So often we get into a relationship for the wrong reasons and invariably there are constant questions or considerations that arise. Am I really attracted to them? Do I want to be "off the market" right now? Do I really want to introduce this person to my family and friends? Does he or she make enough money? We think and say things like, "We're getting older, after all, we have to think of the future." Is…Continue
When you were young did you ever play outside, in a world of your own making? A world where everything you wanted was there for your enjoyment, for your satisfaction? A world that adjusted to your script as you changed your story line to fit where you wanted it to…
I'll never get used to the anguish of a person grieving a pet's "death." We've all been there. We feel a physical hole in our hearts, in our auras; our homes feel hollow; we can take years to recover. This is where a reading helps a grieving pet owner. I act as a conduit between the human and the departed animal and people come to realize that not only does life continue after physical end, but our relationships with our departed loves ones continue as well. Grief-burdened people…Continue
If we really want a genuine organic nerve tonic that is free of charge, it is our deepest love for forgiveness. As long as we hold a grudge in the secret chamber of our heart, the nerves weaken. When we realize the power of forgiveness, we forgive as the highest form of self-love; the release of the poison of blame and guilt lifts us up into a world where we can hear the Universal footsteps and the music of the spheres as we are enjoy perfect health.
Forgiveness is simply an…Continue
We sometimes have these moments of clarity. Maybe it is from meditation, yoga, or just simple signs, but what I see is the opposite of what I should or want to be seeing. We engage in social media for several reasons, but it is also a very powerful tool in today’s society. We find out things before we even turn on the television or pick up a paper. What do you see? I see positivity, motivation, inspiration, and amazing things happening every day; however, I also see a great deal of tragedy,…Continue
“If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another." ~ Deepak Chopra
Do you find decision making easy or hard? Are you the type who makes a decision, acts on it, correcting as you go? Or do you brood over making an absolutely perfect decision so you don’t appear foolish? Did you know that you can improve your information gathering and decision making by…Continue
There is something very special about the human path. This is due to our ability to over-complicate it with planning and an abundance of thoughts and fears that simply fog up our real vision. In terms of realizing what we were put here to do, there is really no underlying struggle. The effects of an overactive, thinking brain can be crippling, as it tries to cling to every detail. At times, we build an external expectation; a rigid, rusty world in our minds that we think should become…Continue
As I shared in my article last month, Adding Color to your Day through Vedic Astrology, I had said that there is a specific deity and so much more that are all associated with each planet. Through the teachings of enlightened Master,Dr. Baskaran Pillai, www.pillaicenter.com, I have learned about these associations and connect with them daily. When you just acknowledge the…Continue
We have used the word hero to describe Olympic athletes, combat soldiers and people that have saved others from harm. These exemplify moments of heroism, but it is not an act or a single attribute of greatness that makes a hero. It is a journey, a connection to a collective myth. It is not another man’s story; it is the Human’s story. Once we make conscious this journey, we no longer require the external reward or the masses’ admiration. We see we are enough and we can seize the…Continue
It seems like so many of us have been dramatically changing in the past couple of months~ at least it feels like it on the inside. We can’t really tell if it looks much different on the outside.
It seems like often the most profound changes on the inside don’t look like much at all on the outside. Maybe you have an epiphany while picking an orange from a tree. You are standing there, clippers in one hand, orange in another. From behind your eyes, an amazing revelation alters…Continue
Imagine that you’re in Paris and you’ve just arrived at the Louvre museum. You’ve given yourself the entire day to bask in the beauty of this vast collection of art. First, you make your way through several rooms that display European paintings in chronological order beginning in the thirteenth century, and you observe the painting styles develop and become more sophisticated throughout the centuries, bringing greater sense of depth,…Continue
Something dawned on me the other day. It happened indoors, so it is not even attributable to being out in nature, as is usually the case. The idea crossed my mind that I like knowing. Curiosity does exist as part of our human nature, and we can choose to view it as a definite blessing in life.
If we are mindful, we find that it often does not take a lot of work to find…Continue
What would our world be like if every one of us was to be granted supernatural faculties?
A first glance at such a scenario comes up with a seemingly indisputable picture of an ideal society living in peace and harmony, with every person having boundless freedom in all aspects of their lives, being able to fully satisfy their every wish and desire, undo all of their mistakes and social faux pas, change the past and create a definite future.
Divorce is such a common occurrence in this day and age so cultivating the necessary spiritual tools to cope with divorce is imperative if we want to experience peace in our lives. Even if you personally haven’t been through a divorce chances are you have most likely been affected by someone else’s. If you are a child of divorced parents then you know the lasting emotional effects that it can have on a person especially if the emotions aren’t dealt with in a gentle and compassionate…Continue
