Living The Authentic Self

To know and express our authentic self, it is necessary to take off the false masks. To survive a difficult childhood, fit in with our peers, hide our emotional wounds and vulnerabilities or to be part of a group, we often become who and what others want us to be. Overtime we may begin to identify with these false masks and we forget who we are. Eventually, these masks can feel more like a prison, than a coping strategy. No longer providing us with the safety and security we seek, we feel…

The Cosmic Jester and Coincidence

The phenomenon known as "incredible coincidence" seems to merge together all kinds of threads from different strands of life, in patterns most often whimsical and unpredictable. 

The same "whimsical" motif describes the modus operandi of the Cosmic Jester: A strange wrinkle in the universe who likes to play tricks on us. An impish rascal, the Jester is also known in different…

How Rituals and Routine can impact our lives

Rituals are defined by the Cambridge dictionary as: a set of fixed actions and sometimes words performed regularly, especially as part of a ceremony.[1] A routine is defined as a usual or fixed way of doing things.[2] They both require fixed actions. Elements of superstition,…

How Meeting Elizabeth Gilbert Changed My Life (Eat, Pray, Love & Beyond!) by Tonya Melendez

How Meeting Elizabeth Gilbert Changed My Life (Eat, Pray, Love & Beyond!)

by Tonya Melendez

“There’s a crack (or cracks) in everyone…that’s how the light of God gets in.”

― Elizabeth Gilbert

The "Eat, Pray, Love" story continues now as Elizabeth Gilbert and her beloved, "Felipe" are no more. The news of the split reminded me of the evolution she wrote about in the book, how she shifted, healed and learned to love again. Energy is always moving, like magic. We…

The Energetic Psychopath

How to Identify their Energy Pattern 

Since 2012 there have been more than 90 school shootings alone. That doesn't include other large-scale massacres like bombings. The violent nature of tragic shootings continues to make nightly news, and the aftermaths are increasingly televised, numbing our psyches.

We watch as parents and friends hide their faces in horror, as footage scans over a shocked crowd, and…

The Power Behind Beliefs

“Beliefs are seeds that will one day flower into realities.” -Harry Palmer

Many people are aware that their beliefs create their reality. But there is much more to this than simply positive thinking. The ability to create new beliefs that actually attract a new reality requires learning 3 foundational skills:

1) We need to be able to find our hidden…

The "Son of Man" May Not Have Been Jesus

Recorded in the New Testament gospels are stories of Jesus telling of the “Son of Man” to be treated badly and crucified, rising on the third day. The term “son of man” was originally an Old Testament term, Jews making distinction between the sons of ordinary men and the sons of Adam, the father of a new kind of man, cognizant of and giving obedience to a one God, manifested in the phrase: “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that…

Give Yourself a Psychological Do-Over

“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” ~ Viktor E. Frankl


Figuring out what life is all about can involve years and years of searching. In fact, if you’ve given up on that task recently, please re-consider picking up the last discovery you had. There is always so much more. It’s kind of what infinity is all about.

One of the things we learn about in life is who and what we are, and this job can be filled with…

8 Tools That Turn You Into a Business Writer

Most business majors graduate from college happy that they have put their essay and paper writing behind them. It’s time to move on to career roles. Unfortunately, their happiness is short-lived. No matter what career path they choose, writing will “rear its ugly head” again and again. They disliked it in school and here they are having to worry about sentence structure, grammar, punctuation, and more all over again.

At the opposite end are those students who loved and…

The Key to Inspired Action

We live in a world where the majority of us need to slow down and to take time to do less. To be less busy and not filling time with doing, but simply being. This concept is at odds with what society has been teaching us for years, that we need to do more, achieve more, be more. Eastern cultures however have long known the benefit of being, without the need to constantly be doing. The practice of mindfulness and meditation is being embraced evermore in the western world however, and finally…

How Having an Online Business Helped Me after my Divorce

Everybody said, after I got divorced, that I should take time out, find my feet, get myself together again. I didn’t listen to them. I’d just seen a friend go through a divorce and the longer she took ‘for herself’ the worse off she seemed to become. And besides, I had mouths to feed! The little ones still needed school supplies, packed lunches and the house to be heated when they came home.

So I decided to wait with taking the time and instead throw myself fully into building a new…

The Illusion of Information

The Illusion of Information


by Daniel Mitel


“In our very understanding we are free” (Osho)



            Osho said something really important: we cannot understand more than we experience.  Words are just illusions. In other words, we can turn ourselves into great scholars and get a lot of information but it is still an illusion. People really believe that information is knowledge but it is…

How To Let Go

One of the greatest skills that you could ever acquire is the ability to be able to let go at will. To be able to release a negative feeling, to be able to release a negative thought form, a negative habit, a negative perspective. Anything really that we feel is weighing us down, everything that is blocking us from our full expression in whatever form that may be.

Letting go is really at the centre of any healing or spiritual evolution. Nothing can be achieved unless you let go and…

Daily Stretches: How to Exercise Safely During Pregnancy

Overall, a vast majority of regular exercises are safe for pregnant women. What matters more than the action itself, is the health of the mother-to-be and the state of the pregnancy. Expecting mothers should always speak with a medical professional or trained therapist with experience in the matter if they have questions. If you were physically active before pregnancy, you should be able to maintain most of your regimen. Never attempt to manage your average level of exertion, though. Do…

Sharing a thought..

We have become so afraid to feel. We are guarded with our thoughts, our emotions, and our lives. We don't trust one another and we find ourselves competing with each other.

Yoga isn't a competition.

Yoga isn't about how many followers you have.

Yoga isn't about how many likes you get.

Yoga isn't about selling yourself through social media.

Yoga isn't a popularity contest.

We have lost sight as to what yoga is really about.

We have lost sight about what yoga… Continue

There's a Simple Way to Find Joy

Joy is an essential part of what we know as spiritual enlightenment—it is that tender and loving feeling towards ourselves and our life, most often experienced when we are one with the Universe, or our chosen Higher Power. It is a state of total transcendence where all the ebbing and flowing of life moves around the blissful individual, never impairing their divine state. Doesn’t this sound wonderful?

We’ve come to know that enlightenment does not always mean feeling great, but joy…
