The Other Side Of The Storm

No one is exempt from trying times. On more than a few occasions, I have been pushed to my limit. Once or twice, I have been pushed beyond. So, why do some people focus while others fold in the mist of the storm?

Being a retired crisis counselor of 20 years, I had the benefit of a front row seat watching people endure the worst that life has to offer. As fate would have it, I entered the hardest years of my life in my mid 40's to early 50's. I think the blessing is all those years of…

The Quickest Way To Control- By Vance Larson

  
A client asked me "what's the quickest way to get control over their life"? Don't wait to meditate. Don't asked to be loved, and be the first to forgive.
 
When you meditate, you are in the present moment. With no regard to the future or past, you simplify your thought process and act in the best manner for that moment. And as we mediate, no action is sometimes the best option. As we align our thoughts with our breath, we invite…

Walk Away

By Vance Larson C.H.H.C., M.ht, CTC

If walking away is going to bring you peace. Walk away. To stay in a relationship where communication is forced. Walk away. Arguing for the sake of being right is the way of prolonged pain. Relationships can survive disagreements. In fact, the disagreement often acts as a bridge to new and sacred ground.



Is pride inherently a bad thing? Does pride goeth before the fall? Or is it the fall that keeps pride going? To fall is to be…

Far Too Many People

Far too many people spend their entire lifetime looking for the love of their life. When in reality all they really had to do was look on the mirror. While it is true some people have self worth issues, the lesson is the way you love yourself is the way others will love you as well.
 
Far too many people say that until you love yourself that other truly can't love you. I tend to disagree with that. As we…

The Secret Is This

The love you have for yourself, will be proportionate to love you have for your significant other. In other words, if you feel your relationship is lacking, you must ask yourself "why am I not loving myself". We attract the people who will mirror how we feel about ourselves. The secret is this. No one can complete you. You are already complete.
 
Stop blaming your significant. Start awakening yourself. What are you worth? What do you allow? You set the tone on how…

Soul Survival- Staying Sane During Insane Times

Remove all the people from your inner circle who are not giving this life their all.
 
Embrace silence like it is your best friend.
 
Act on your…

3

By Vance Larson C.H.H.C., M.ht, CTC

 

Despite ongoing personal tragedy for the past couple of years, I repeatedly am asked how do I stay so upbeat and happy? I have written papers and have lectured on this subject many times before. I will break it down to 3 simple rules. I find that embracing theses 3 principles, it not only makes life more manageable, but it frees the mind which ultimately leads to happiness.
 
So without a deep mystical explanation {which is…

What They Didn't Know

 By Vance Larson C.H.H.C., M.ht, CTC
 
I saw a group on teenagers making fun of a homeless man. They didn't see a man. They saw a bum. What they didn't know is that he was a highly decorated veteran suffering from PTSD who lost his family due to his condition.
 
I watched a 10 year old boy who was caught stealing getting arrested. As a crowd gathered around I heard all their comments, which were…

It Wasn't Until

By Vance Larson C.H.H.C., M.ht, CTC
 
 
It wasn't until I hated- that I realized that I imprisoned myself.
 
It wasn't until I lost everything- that I realized what was truly important.
 
It wasn't until I was sick- that I realized the value of health.
 
It wasn't until my friend died- that I realized just how big of an influence they were to me.
 
It wasn't until I…

Self Love. Master It.

By  Vance Larson C.H.H.C., M.ht, CTC

 

The only true power you will ever have is self love. Master it. As you love yourself you are affirming to the universe that you are worthy, whole and complete. The relationship you have with yourself will set the tone for all other relationships. When we feel less than, we attract through our vibration what we feel. Despite what many feel, our relationships don't complete us, they…

The Flow The Tank

There comes a time when you have to get honest with yourself. What is your intention? What it the vibration that you are sending out? As we think, so we create. Our lives become a path that we co-create with thought. What is it that we are creating?

 
Gratitude and silence shape our well being. Constant motion and anger destroy it. Your existence is but a reflection of the vibration that you are emitting. Stop, breathe and elevate your…

Eternal

By  Vance Larson C.H.H.C., M.ht, CTC
 
 
To stand in indifference. That is liberation. Hate can weaken the soul only if you allow it to dwell there. Do not be harmed by others words. Although words hold energy, reaction determines if they hold you.
 
Fear is not real. Caution is. Seeking acceptance is the fastest way not to be accepted. Self acceptance leads to authentic relationships. If you…

The Well

By Vance Larson C.H.H.C., M.ht, CTC

Our spiritual well will overflow is we continue to add to it. However, if we drink the water and do not replenish its supply, it will dry up. Leaving us to thirst and eventually die. Our spiritual well represents our actions. We must give in order to take. It is the Yin and the Yang that complete the circle. And in the circle of life we all depend on each other.
 
Its a simple spiritual truth. We are all connected. And it is…

10 To Zen. 10 Lessons I've Learned Through Meditation

1. Let go. At the end of the day all that really natters is a mind at peace.
 
2. The only time we're powerless is when we act like a victim.

The Meditative Man

The meditative man speaks with his actions and not his words. He embraces the darkness because that is when he shines the brightest. He knows that pain is part of progress. The past, present and future matter not. Each breath leads to the door to "all that is".

 
The meditative man understands energy. Knowing that masculine and feminine energy can occupy the same matter. That they must exist in perfect harmony to reach…

Silence

Working from a place of higher conscious one must put more of a emphasis on silence. As we evolve in our spiritual studies, we will learn that verbal communication is the least effective way to establish connectedness. It is energy, not words which will indeed pave a path to enlightenment. If we operate from a higher conscious our energy will be pure. When we do this our actions will follow.

The old saying that actions speak louder than words proves true. Righteous actions create safe…

The Enlightened Way

 
We all suffer set backs. The enlightened soul understands that when life is working against you, life really is giving you an opportunity to grow at a accelerated rate. Although unpleasant, most will see this as a call for action. However it is not. Using this time to silence the mind in attempts to understand what you are supposed to learn from this experience is the enlightened way.
 
As you evolve…

You are not in the universe. The universe is in you

You are not in the universe. The universe is in you. The cultivated mind understands that conscious is connectedness. You are not separate from the source. Silence for so many…
