Go on Vacation , or retreat?

At the time of this writing, it is middle of summer, and quite seasonal to think of, plan, and go on vacation. But let's explore the difference between a vacation and retreat. Vacation is that time that you take leave from work and regular activities for rest, pleasure, and travel is implied and assumed. There are many times we hear however, that the vacation ended up being very tiring, and people to need to catch up on rest from their vacation. This is often due to lack of planned buffer…

Conscious Weight Loss

In order to change our bodies, we first need to know our minds. Everything begins with a thought. We are dynamic beings, but through our thoughts we maintain the illusion of permanence. This is a truth almost always overlooked by people trying to lose weight. We put so much emphasis on diet and exercise, which are undoubtedly important components, but they are not the roots of the problem. They are the how of the equation, not the why. The why matters and to understand it, we need to…

How To Heal Your Mental Body And Transform Your Life

Our outer physical body is a manifestation of our inner consciousness. It is the product of the thoughts that make up our belief system. Whether consciously or unconsciously, our thoughts will eventually manifest in our outer world. In order for healing in our outer world to be anything more than a temporary fix we must transmute the origins of the dis-ease in our mental body. Otherwise, our outer symptoms will eventually return to reflect our inner turmoil. The bottom line is we must change…

Why Spiritual Practice Is Essential For Long Term Healing

What does it really mean to be healed? Healing is a form transmutation or transformation; changing form. When you heal yourself, you transform yourself, transmuting that which does not serve you. You take ‘dis-ease’ and transform it into health.

True healing is a lifetime endeavour, not a temporary fix. If you want to live a life of health and vitality it requires you to make a lifestyle commitment. You must think and act in a way that intends your highest good physically, mentally,…

“Four Ways to Cleanse Negative Energy”

When we are around toxic people, when we are around toxic environments with lots of negative thinking. When we touch people who have negative energies, and when we interact in general with those who are angry, greedy, and full of hate, we pick up negative energy. Negative energy can make us drag, feel depressed, and can start mind altering changes in our persona… and even cause challenges with our electronic devices…

“What About Karma and Physical Health”

We come to this plane to learn lessons and some of those lessons concern living life with physical difficulties. Some are born with all kinds of physical and mental impairments. When we are on the other side of  the veil we soon decide that we need to go back to the physical plane and learn more, and thus we decide the lessons we need to learn. There is no thought to how much pain and suffering we will endure, that’s of…

Egolessness: Unconscious Consciousness?

The self-development field is a fascinating place, filled with fascinating individuals.

As lifetime students of the Human Condition, we have always been rather intrigued by the highly diverse paths people take in pursuit of their personal journeys towards enlightenment, self-realization or whatever else it is they seek.

Which brings us to this thing called “Ego.”

Ego is perhaps the single most over-analyzed, over-discussed and over-used…

Light Thieves -- The difference between light workers and light stealers.

There are people who will claim to know you and act as though they are part of your tribe, using you for their own agendas as they drop your name in other circles. Their sincerity depends entirely on how much you can offer them in each moment. Their motives are selfish, not selfless. These are not light workers in any way, shape or form. Don't fool yourself into thinking that because they have light, they must be good people. There are many gifted healers who don't have an authentic…

“Spiritual Peace = Controlling our Mind”

In order to have whatever we want, we must first control our mind. Think about Sir Edmond Hillary the mountain climber climbing Mount Everest. It's a long arduous journey and there are many obstacles in the way, such as crevasses, icy cliffs, lack of oxygen, and with great heights every step feels like a person is moving tons of concrete. A person of normal mind would never make it to the summit. But a person with…

If you are reading this, it's likely that you are a "constant improver," a person who spends a lot of time and effort making sure that your work is the best it can be, a high achiever dedicated to your development, and at the same time may tend to worry about your performance and how others perceive you.

Triggers and Compressors ... Engaging the Activation Process.

     The evolution of awareness is an ongoing process, moving from a state of confusion to a state of health and stability. The activation of intense emotion, usually called triggering, has been associated with PTSD for the most part, but is actually a description of something that happens to everyone across the board. That makes it an evolutionary opportunity for all to engage in.

     Whether we have PTSD or not, we are presented with situations that engage us and activate…

Awareness and Self-Actualization Revisisted

The majority of those of us in the self-improvement, metaphysical or spiritual movement idealize a time when we are able to fully incorporate and live from the remembrance of the truths we have come to believe. Although we may disagree on the content of those beliefs, we are universal in our desire to become what Abraham Maslow has termed “self-actualized.” We believe it is possible for us to become all that we can be and remain in a state of awareness without the slumber of unconsciousness…

The Etheric Body

The lowest vibrational layer of your subtle body, that has direct contact with your physical body and sustains your life, is the etheric body. It is often referred to as your human atmosphere and contributes to vitality and health.

Your etheric body is the connection to the divine and absorbs and distributes the vital force energy of the universe to your entire physical body. It is the bridge between your outer physical world and your inner energy world.

Etheric comes from the…

How to Create Balance for Your Life

In our work-a-day lives, we are driven to achieve, to be successful. Work is just one focus in our lives. What about who you are in your own mind, what about your finances, and what about your vision for the future?

It would be wonderful to have a Master Plan for your life and to include all of those topics. If you don’t have one, why not take a few moments and create one? Floating along IS one method, but the results are not quite as predictable.

21st Century Enlightenment

Nowadays, we see many spiritual buzz words banded about such as ascension, golden age and 5th Dimension, all pertaining to a charmed and more enlightened life for humanity. But what really is Enlightenment?

In the Oxford English dictionary enlightenment is defined as "The action or state of attaining or having attained spiritual knowledge or insight".

Spirit sometimes refer to themselves as "Masters in their own essence" where they use this spiritual energy as a means…

The Magic Carpet Revealed

As a child, did you delight in the exotic, mystical stories of magic carpets, manifestation through puffs of smoke, and genies?  Most of us did, either through storybooks that unleashed our imagination or through colorful and hypnotic animation in movies and on television.  The names, the clothing,   The Arabian locales and cultural accoutrements increased the exotic appeal of the story, which appeared, like many other compelling tales, in the 1001 Arabian Nights.  Who wouldn’t desire a…
