It is common to hear people complain about being lonely around holidays during the year when expectations are running high. This is especially prevalent if someone has lost a loved one or broken up with a spouse or friend, or if the family is not together.…Continue
Here we'll explore the connection between the spiritual Self and physical, mental and emotional health and well-being.
Spirituality in this instance does not necessarily mean religious. Although some articles will lean toward one certain religion or another, most will be geared toward spirituality in terms of living out your passion, expressing the divine energy inside you as a means of balancing your Self. If a part of you is being neglected or overworked, it can manifest in your…Continue

I have started to investigate and inquire into the lessons about rejection or abandonment in relationship that people I care about have experienced. This continues to be one of my biggest lessons, and I really am not sure what to do with it anymore. I have done the psychological approach to exploring it, with some success. I have done the spiritual approach to it, with greater success. But it continues to erupt in me, and it is triggered by things that make no sense. At this point, I…Continue
We are seeing a crisis in health worldwide; part of the world is still dying from poor conditions, while the other is dying of poor choices. It is time to ask ourselves why? As we stand here on the edge of expanded human consciousness, we each have the opportunity to choose differently, deliberately. We can choose to embrace this moment with clarity of mind, a healthy body and an open heart or we can stand in resistance. Just as each single celled organism has an effect on the food…Continue
Feeling the Energy of Spirit
As a child I remember seeing a movie in which an unseen spirit touched a woman's shoulder in a cold breeze and sent her screaming from the room. I slept with a nightlight next to my bed for a long time after that. Sometimes my fear was so great I needed to have the hall light on outside my bedroom door just in case. When I was a young girl, I communicated with the spirit world in a more solid form that I could see and hear.…Continue
Science is again and again affirming the reality about mindfulness and meditation that Eastern mystics confirmed millenniums ago. Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison recently showed that compared to non-meditators, long-term meditators had significantly increased gamma brain waves. Another study at the same university shows promise for using mindfulness to regulate how we react to stress. Other studies show that mindfulness improves the integrative structure of the brain that…Continue

Gratitude is, at its simplest, a celebration of joy in being alive.
Celebration is not something we have to put off for another day, or for a special occasion, it’s there at our fingertips, to be practiced equally when we think no one is looking or when we know the world is watching.
It’s a state of joyful abandon during which the love we feel in our hearts is sent out in…Continue
In a show of respect we honor each of the seven elements for their place in creation. The first six, the rising sun, our ancestors, the setting sun, our personal journey, Father Sky and Mother Earth all bring us things we can see and touch in this world. The last element that we honor is Spirit. We hold Spirit in highest regard by acknowledging that it…Continue
Does Ether Exist? Yes, it is “Spirit”
By William Bezanson
A question that has long puzzled me is “What is the medium through which electromagnetic (EM) energy propagates?”. In this article, I want to propose that the medium, even in outer space, is Ether. And further, its relationship to Spirit makes it very interesting to the spiritually focused conscious…Continue

To surrender one’s way of being can indeed seem frightening because of what it implies to the ego. To the ego the idea of surrender is basically correlated or entangled with the notion of losing or sacrificing something. The dynamic of the ego is such that it views itself as being involved in some kind of battle with anything and everything that poses a threat to its mere existence. It incessantly perceives every external circumstance as a form of competition and therefore it has the…Continue
What do you do when you wake up beside the man you love, the man you married, the man who not only fathered your child but lovingly participated in her birth, and realize that you are trapped? That you feel anxious, desperate, sad, and gradually like you are fading away? That you binge eat as a way of suppressing the ongoing feeling that something is not quite right and you have a horrible feeling it might be you?
When you are committed to a spiritual path, you come to joyfully…Continue
When the Law of Attraction surfaced in a pop culture way, it brought a lot of hope to many people that we could begin to control our circumstances. Though this is true, many of us are beginning to find that this process is not as easy as simply applying affirmations. There is also more that we can consider as "thought." Thoughts are everywhere, afterall; conscious ones, unconscious ones, personal ones, collective ones, etc. Which, all these thoughts are manifesting in direct and indirect…Continue
