An inherent part of living with Consciousness is to be able to understand what is going on with both ourselves and others, so we can act with mindfulness and compassion.
Under this general heading, we often face the issue of feeling supported in our endeavors, and how to best be supportive of others. As an active member of the global HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) community, one of the most common themes I see in forums, blogs or just hear from individuals is "I need support!"…Continue
Breath gives us life. In Sanskrit, that life force, prana, is considered the equivlaent of "chi" energy or the "ki" in Reik . It is the breath of life that permeates our entire being and moves up the spine touching and vitalizing each chakra, healing by its very nature. Various systems concentrate on the breath as a healing agent, from yogic breathing to holotropic breath work (rebirthing) to the science of LaMaze childbirth or rebirthing, which uses a series of uninterrupted breaths to…Continue
We become very accustomed to things, don’t we? We become accustomed to having oatmeal for breakfast. We get accustomed to having our clothes cleaned in a particular way. We are accustomed to a specific manner of interface with particular individuals. When we arise in the morning, we have an accustomed way that we move through our morning rituals. We are accustomed to receiving our paycheck on certain days. We’re accustomed to the way our home is maintained. Because we are accustomed, we…Continue

What is holding you back from reaching your potential?
Maybe you have a dream that keeps nagging at you in the back of your mind, but you brush it away. It keeps tugging at your heart, but you push it down again and again. What are you afraid of?
3 Big Fears
There are three main emotional fears all humans have in common. See if any or all of these ring true for you.
The system we live in is a slow burn into a personal and private prison of negative emotion perpetuated by antiquated ideals in regards to energy, government, and finance. Our society isn’t functioning from a place of teaching us how to live healthy lives and thrive in…Continue

Working as an advisor in the new-age industry, I can end up talking to many individuals, both as clients and friends. As a result, I’ve listened to a multitude of individuals and seen how certain new-age ideas have been employed. I’ve also observed the detrimental effects they have had. If consistent patterns arise, I may begin to question, “What is it about certain beliefs; that instead of bringing people more peace and contentment, they are making a great number of individuals feel…Continue

We live in a world based on the consumption and accumulation of stuff. This truth is even more exaggerated over the holiday season. But in a time when the earth and so many inhabitants are suffering, can we use this season as an opportunity to turn over a new leaf? To consume in a way that is better for all of us? It is so easy to use the holidays as an excuse to overspend, overindulge and overexert ourselves, however in this very tenuous time in humanity’s history it makes it even more…Continue
The gift of speech is so customary to human beings that we fail to appreciate the true magnitude of its power to bless or to harm. Words have incredible power. That power, how we can use it to bless ourselves and others, how we misuse it to hurt ourselves and others, and the thoughtless habits we fall into with regard to it, all offer us an immense resource for cultivating mindfulness.
The bottom line is, we need to be happy. That is our base instinct,…Continue
Do you ever feel exhausted and drained after spending time with another? Do you willingly give others your energy, in the hope that he or she will feel uplifted and more positive? Do you need to be in a relationship with another in order to feel alive and energized?
In most of our relationships we give and receive energy. It is natural and normal. Yet, if you rely on another’s life force energy or if another is…Continue
Faith is something we all have. We always have faith in some things at all times. Having faith in something is the act of believing in something so strongly that we don’t even consider it could be any other way. For example we have faith every time we take a breath that there will be oxygen in the atmosphere to fill our lungs. We have faith that when we eat our food our body will properly deliver all of the nutrients needed for our survival. We have faith that when we take…Continue
Being the Change in your life is not a magical, instantaneous event. Like Life itself, it is a journey and not a destination. Be the Change is a process that can be accomplished while you life your life, go to your job, raise your children, love your pets and take vacation. It is like playing an exciting game in the background while you do the things you merely do. It’s a colorful extension you can play with the “I” of you silently while your kids swing on swings, while you mow the lawn,…Continue
Entropic Healing and Chaos Therapy: ‘You’ve Got the Power’
By Kathy Custren
By definition, entropic--or the word ‘entropy’-- does not sound very appealing at all. It supports the idea of decomposition well enough: it can mean a degree of energetic disorder or randomness in [the] system; a gradual decline into chaos. Who would want that to happen? How would entropy be useful?
Alchemists in the know may identify entropy as part of a necessary natural, negredo (nigredo)…Continue
It’s no surprise that stress accelerates the aging process. Are there foods that help to combat aging and reduce our stress levels? So-called ‘comfort foods’ may not really be doing you any favors, especially since they are often high in fats and carbohydrates. When you feel stressed, your best choice is to feed your body the healthiest things you can find, because unhealthy foods will actually increase your stress level. Think about it. The last time you were stressed out, and you ate a…Continue
