7 Ways To Refocus On Life Energy

In today’s world of rush and busy-ness, we can easily become fixated on our work, priorities, and fascination with technology to the point that our relationship with nature and what is living, natural, and pure can become slightly eclipsed.

This said, we tend to think of the Law of Attraction as a law that states that we will tend to manifest from where we most place our “focus.” If this is true, is it possible that the external world is starting to communicate to us, and very loudly,…

Is The Focus On Finding A "Twin Flame" A Healthy One?

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…

11:11, Biblical Prophecy and the 11th Hour Workers

Many people from all walks of life have begun to see 11:11 in various places, especially on their digital clocks, phones and computers. As this begins to happen more frequently, many of us may begin to ask ourselves “What does this mean?” and “Why am I seeing this now?”

If you still do not know what the 11:11 phenomenon is, it occurs when a person begins to feel drawn to look at the clock whenever it is 11:11.  The phenomenon may start with the number 11 but can extend to seeing other…

Restoring Balance in the World through Learning to Bridge Heaven with Earth

Everything is symbolic. It is true life is an illusion or dream, but are you able to read it?

Right now, if you notice what is happening to water, it is being destroyed by symbols that represent fire and which are toxic. However, when we think of water and fire, we normally think of using water to put out too much fire. Now, we find that fire is somehow putting out water (or at least the life within it). However, in the natural world, fire symbols are eased by applying water…

When Criticism and Slander Are Used as Weapons

Most of us have been on the receiving end of criticism, to some extent, throughout our lives. Some of us have been raised by extremely critical parents or have been influenced by critical lovers, friends, or teachers. This type of criticism goes well beyond what is constructive. It may be labeled as nitpicking out of an inner sense of resentment, intent on finding what is wrong with a person rather than appreciating what is right.…

Disinformation in the New-Age

As a mighty flood sweeps away the sleeping village, so death carries away the person of distracted mind who only plucks the flowers (of pleasure). ~Gautama Buddha

Disinformation is nothing new, even in the new age. Due to the fact that many of us hold the ancient masters in high regard, it is natural for us, as new-agers, to want to portray or believe that our ancient teachers would support the new-age movement.  After all,…

Ascension Symptoms and Finding Balance

Ascension symptoms (see a list here>>) are typically symptoms that happen as our kundalini rises. But, these conditions shouldn’t need to become permanent fixtures in our lives, leading to diagnoses such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, food and chemical sensitivities, ADHD and more. So, what else might we need to know if we find ourselves experiencing “ascension symptoms” over a long period of…

Finding the Lotus in the Muddy Pond

If we were to see the lotus as representing our purity of self and the muddy pond as representing the thought forms that clouds us from accessing that purity, then one great way to weed through the mud would be to employ some form of meditation. While breathing exercises and blank-mind meditation have much to offer, the below offers a guided meditation for those who feel more comfortable using visualization as a tool:…

Collective Consciousness, Manifestation & the Different Carriers of Thought

If we were to define the word “collective conscious,” we might see it as a level of thought and belief that extends beyond the personal thought level and is shared by a collective of individuals. The thoughts within the collective consciousness can reflect more than our “language thoughts,” i.e. the thoughts that come from our minds which are composed of words. These thoughts have the capability of manifesting in symbolic ways; much like how our thoughts and emotions manifest within our…

Trademarks™ of a Separation Consciousness

Within the new-age there are many concepts that are pursued in a contradictory fashion. Not that it isn’t natural that this would happen as individuals begin to explore new ideas and new ways of thinking. After all, the new-age is still “new” and a baby in ways. Many individuals within it are still growing in their understanding and have not become fully enlightened. As a result, certain concepts may be espoused without a real understanding of how to implement them within our physical lives.…

"Growing Up" Out Of The Current Collective Consciousness

Right now, if we look at the collective world in an objective way, we will see that there is:  

  • a child-like way to function in the world
  • a teen-like way to function in the world
  • an adult-like way to function in the world

When thinking about how we live at a personal level, it might be easy for most of us to place ourselves in the “adult” category. However, this article concerns how our collective way of living, being and believing keeps us stuck…

Learning to Approach Spirituality from Outside "the Box"

We've been living in a box for so long. This box tells us what should be important to us, how to define certain concepts, how to live etc. The bigger picture reveals that this box doesn't really work for us in the end and is in some way self-sabotaging and self-destructive. But, we think we must ignore this in order to keep trying to make the old box we live in work through filling it with fancy ideas which are not fully grounded in reality.

For example, espousing ideas of Love that…

The Law of Attraction and the Ego

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…

Nature: The Missing Step In Our Spirituality?

There are many ideas that we hold as true within the new-age movement which developing an ability to connect with Nature might help us with. For instance, the more we can listen to Nature, the more we will realize that She has a mirror like quality that can reflect the predominant energy of the whole. The more we can realize these reflective qualities (both positive and…

The Colors of Abundance

Abundance can mean different things to different people. While defines abundance as “a great and plentiful amount,” “fullness to overflowing,” and “affluence; wealth,” each of these definitions is open to interpretation as well.  What is wealth to one person may be valueless to another, and vice…
