Magical Metaphysical Energy

All intuitive messages come through energy.  In one of my intuition development classes, a student raised his hand and asked, "What is this energy thing about, how do you feel energy?" This energy thing is metaphysical energy. It is thought to be the energy that connects us all and has created everything.

Sensing energy is actually not difficult to do, your body does it all the time. In fact, your body and your brain are built to tune in and feel energy exquisitely. Scientists have…

The Well Intentioned Ego: A Call for Ethical Standards for Holistic Practitioners

I have studied and practiced psychology for 20 years and I have been a Reiki Master for 15.  I have been a student of metaphysics for nearly 30 years.  And through out that time, I have been uncomfortable that there is no code of ethics for metaphysicians in holistic practice.  There are "little ethics"; a Reiki master will teach her students some standards, and there are associations that require you to adhere to a standard for membership.  A…

Beyond Limitations

There is a hunger in all of us that wants to be understood. To be fed. A core ideology that grumbles at any taste of freedom from the ache of longing. The soul knows what it wants. Without question. It was born to know. And We - YOU - put limitations on what your soul can have, what it can experience, and what it can express. And so it damns you. It damns you with guilt, with frustration, with anger, with fear. You have bound your soul up with limitations like sinew that is incapable…

The JOY of Self-Analysis

Oh! The wonderful Joy of self-analysis!

Just trying to peel the onion,

and see that there is only one truth

and that is the Silence of the Heart,

where all eloquence and creativity

are dancing all the time……Baba

The Vendanta (ancient Spiritual Text from India) uses the Sanskrit…

Self Actualization: What Does That Mean?

This question has long been the subject of various psychological theories about individual development.  Abraham Maslow described it as an individual's desire for fulfillment—an internal yearning to maximize one’s full potential by becoming everything a person is capable of becoming.

In a nutshell, self-actualization is about living life to the fullest. It involves that quiet internal voice that keeps trying to persuade us to make the most of the gifts and talents with which we are…

Money and Spirituality in the New Paradigm

So, ‘The Shift’ has come and gone, right? And yet money still exists and the world hasn’t come to an end. So what exactly has happened, and how do we make sense of working with old, existing structures in the new paradigm?


Too often lately I’ve heard people lament that they have to pay for services that they believe should be free – such as spiritual guidance from those who have chosen that as a career. There’s some huge anger and resistance around the idea of paying when you…

The Golden Ripple of Faith

Living on mother earth is filled with magnificent miracles.  They are wonderful occurrences that come through divine intervention.  Things just happen in the most extraordinary of ways. Just as you feel as if you have lost all hope, this surge of power runs through you. It is an electrical bolt of magnificent grace that showers upon your life. As Mahavatar Babaji says,” have faith. Everything depends on faith.” That means to be like a mountain;…

One of the highest form of ‘sadhana’ is ‘Sri Vidya Sadhna’, also called the yantra , tantra , mantra sadhna. One needs to get initiated by a Guru to venture into this divine union with the universal energy ; the abode of gods and goddesses and merging with the universe. It’s one of the most powerful sadhna to burn your ‘karmic debts’ and to re write the script of your life with the blessings of all the ascended masters, gods and…

4 Reasons to Be More Playful

At some point in our lives we have forgot how to play.  I was recently at the pool with my son and I watched the moms sitting dutifully on the edge watching their young happily play, but never getting in themselves. Do we really want to forgo an experience only to ensure the integrity of our hair and make-up? We seem to value appearance and/or outcomes over the experience in many ways.  Can we ever master the art of living from the pool’s edge or does it require us to dive in and risk the…

"The Tragedy of Captivity - Where did it all go wrong? Sacred Bonds with the Sea re-visited"

Whales and Dolphins


"The Tragedy of Captivity - Where did it all go wrong? Sacred Bonds with the Sea re-visited"



     With the unceasingly emotional debate and outcry about the tragic plight of whales and dolphins in captivity, it seems appropriate to revisit the sacredness of these highly intelligent and beloved animals. For eons, the indigenous people have revered whales and…

Beginning To Understand the Soul

The soul exists as part of a larger, interconnected dimension, which, belonging to an entire pattern of interconnected dimensions, makes up the world as we see and yet don’t see it. To exist in our own little world without tangible proof of other aspects of the larger world can mean to deny a fundamental truth of harmonious existence between the earth and the powerful presence of things yet to be discovered, things that mirror our natural world in…

Clarity of Singularity

“To understand one thing well is better than understanding many things by halves.”

--Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“A jack-of-all-trades and a master at none.” -- Unknown

The Conundrum tells us, in its own, unique way, that there is more to being one person. As confusing as that may sound, we can…
