In this modern age, with stress being all around us, it’s hard sometimes to find our own happiness and maintain our sanity. Everyone wants to make their relationship last and everyone wants to feel loved, happy and in harmony with their partner, but few experience it.
What makes a relationship work? What can couples do to keep their relationship in harmony and happy?
Harmony is about a mutual agreement of giving and receiving in the most…Continue
Pain, rejection, loneliness, abandonment are one of the many things that couples feel when struggling in relationships. It’s difficult indeed to ignore such emotions, especially when they become a pattern. Many of us are unaware of their root cause and that the key to having a truthful, loving relationship with our partner is to mirror the nurturing relationship we have with our inner child.
The inner child is a very powerful voice that resides deep in our being. It talks to us about…Continue

I thought it might…Continue

Many people have the gift of medium-ship within their dreams – lucidly encountering the deceased, aware of their telepathic communication experience, and helping deceased souls during their transition to the afterlife. This night shift work of afterlife communication, healing, and guidance takes place during the same hours as we sleep--when our physical body sleeps and our soul astral travels through…Continue
What is real? Realities vary from one person to the next, depending upon one’s view. Our realities change from day to day, moment to moment actually and our respective realities are not always shared with others because of variations in views. Views can be seen, felt, or both.
For instance, a red rose can be viewed as beautiful. To one, this beauty is felt on the heart level. To another who perhaps doesn’t like the color red, does not view the same beauty,…Continue

Unification of Old Religions
Merciful Buddha, gracious Confucius, and loving Christ; here these three great holy figures are combined (Maan Bup Ttong Il).…
Where ever you are you can always keep a calm, centered, peaceful place within you. Through our connecting to that spirit within us, we can face anything. How do we grow that place within us? One way is by enhancing the space outside of us. One of the best every day spiritual practice you can do is to create your own sacred space which becomes your own mini Sacred Power Place.
Sacred Power Places are holy, magical places which have the power to heal the body, inspire the mind,…Continue
There are times when doing yoga at work can be inappropriate. Yoga pants and built-in bra tops might not fit within the scope of your employer’s dress code. Bending over backwards, literally, might be taking it a step to far in you quest to get promoted.
But there are plenty of yogic…Continue
Discoveries being what they are (i.e., obvious), it sometimes takes a little while before awareness sinks in--no matter much we absorb. The quality of information taken in may be part of the situation. We wonder why we make mistakes, when so many of us are considered…Continue
A group that I was in recently was asked why we should be in the moment, in the now. How to get there and how we stay there in our day to day life. Some of the responses were things like :why is this important?” and “it's too hard”. The one the really made me realize that the group was not “getting” the concept was when someone said, “I have to get out of the now to let my mind rest and to stay sane.”
The fact is that staying in your now will do just that. By allowing your…Continue

“It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity."
- Albert Einstein
The first thing that comes to mind when we think about genetic engineering is their use in food production. From Round-up Ready crops to Golden Rice, genetically modified organisms (GMOS) have been part of a national debate for more than three decades. In the wake of prop 37 being voted down in California, an initiative that would have required labeling of genetically…Continue

Living in an imperfect world is stressful. Imperfection can look many ways. It can look like an argument with a loved one, being let down by a friend, losing a job or even not being able to pay the bills. When things do not go how we want them to the imperfection seems to mock us and get us twisted into a bundle of nerves. Many of us walk around in distress much of the time due to our circumstances. Most of the discomfort we experience is from negative…Continue

In the past, many of us were accustomed to celebrating the holidays with reckless abandon. Over spending in the name of holiday cheer was quite common. At times, our decorating turned into neighborhood contests to see who could string the most lights without tripping the circuit breaker. Our biggest holiday challenge may have been what to buy a distant relative we saw once a year. Oh yes, those were the days.
It is now 2012 and for some of us, our financial resources as well as our…
Are You Living with Ghosts?
By Judi Lynch
There is more than one way you might be living with ghosts in your life. We all have shadows and perceptions of a place that exists where things seem hollow, gray and empty. It is a place where everything seems frozen in time, without resolve, growth or change. This is where ghosts of every kind can take up residence without paying rent! They can block the light energy that is constantly available to you, making you dim your own light…Continue

I am just back after the most enchanting visit to the land of Mayan Wisdom, the Wisdom that shook the world with the end of their calendar on 21 December 2012. My visit to Mexico reaffirmed my deepest conviction that the Vedic Seers of India and the Mayan Sages of Mexico were able to realize what could destroy the world or what could sustain it.
Blessed are you all to be here on this planet to connect to all of humanity through your positive vibrations of unity and harmony. Blessed…Continue
The Mystics of Modern Music
By Judi Lynch
They exist in every form of the music we listen to. They are magically creative souls who are gifted spiritually, humanely expressing their innermost feelings and inspiring others to heal by simply listening. They can be so tuned in to channeling the light which brings connection that they tune out everyone and everything else for long periods of time. It can be difficult for them to ground themselves in the reality of life here on…Continue
Happiness is something we are all pursuing. We all want to be happy, or just be happier. As we begin our lives as young adults, we find material things bring us ephemeral happiness that doesn’t last. When we get older, we find intangible things bring us a deeper happiness, such as a good laugh with friends, or visiting a place that brings us peace and contentment. But again, that happiness is fleeting. How do we maintain the state of happiness?…Continue
Have you ever wondered why “the ancients” knew so much that seemed impossible to know, such as the purpose of our bodily glands? I have wondered, for many years.
In this modern age, with its rational, physical, “scientific” explanations of things, any presumption of advanced wisdom for ancient people is viewed with skepticism. And yet, the evidence is growing, that such esoteric knowledge seems truly to have been prevalent among primitive peoples.
I had never…Continue
And then the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. -Anaïs Nin
There is nothing quite like the comfort of your own world. Everything is going along how your think it should be. You know exactly how things are and what to expect from yourself and those around you. At least most of the time. And then, all of a sudden, something changes. And you…Continue
