Somewhere Over the Rainbow

by Gia Dalton 

We all have dreams, which include thinking about what life will be like down the road. How much happier we will be when we get our degree, car, home or move to a new location. We continuously look over the rainbow, as it seems much more appealing than where we are, and what we have…

Living Life by Your Own Right

Who Is Flipping Your Switch?

We are born to live our life by our own right. But we often give control of the switch that determines our moods and happiness to those we are attached to, causing us much suffering in the end. Happiness that is dependent on how another perceives us, however exciting, does not last. True happiness is a state of liberty from dependence on others. The root is in our expectations.

If we expect recognition and gratitude from others for what we did for…

What I learned from surfing; patience and timing.

When I was a boy, about 12 years old, I wanted to become a surfer, but it turned out to be more difficult than I expected. Living inland from the shore, about a half hour from the beach, no public transportation and a busy family, I didn’t get to go very often. Any surfing I got to do was relegated to family vacations where I would beg my parents to allow me to bring my board on the trip, only later to end with my attempts at riding waves usually leaving me upside down in them, so eventually…

From Challenged to Fully Enabled

We have all had the opportunity to witness and be inspired by stories of people encountering significant personal challenges in their lives and came to overcome them. Some were born with a disability impacting their ability to see, hear, attend, read or learn. Some encountered life events which tore them apart physically or emotionally due to neglect, abuse or a life-threatening event. Some have succumbed to the influence of drugs or alcohol to create distance from their pain and misery.…

Master Your Mind – Chose to Share Your Best with a Weary World

It seems we are living in a world that has grown weary from all the bickering, fighting, and anger that continues to be expressed. Many people are ready to give up, many more already have. They are ready to allow someone else to take control of their life. They just want to be left alone. Are you feeling this way too?

Or do you feel your life has been hijacked? You are not in control. Life does not reflect what you want to experience and it just seems to be spinning more and more out…

The Most Accurate News You Can Trust


By Kathy Custren


Human Interest Relies on the Most Accurate News

As we meet the New Year 2017, so much of our attention is directed to the accuracy of the news we read, hear, and experience. For much of the last century, human interest has been drawn to the regular publication of news on which we can rely.

How Happy Are Your Children

“I had a very happy childhood, which is unsuitable if you're going to be an Irish writer.” ~ Maeve Binchy

The Nature of Time & The Human Soul

Most of Eastern philosophy and New Age thought feel that the world is an illusion, and to overcome this condition, humans must return to their source. I submit that these ideas should be flipped around because our source, is the major part of the illusion and already here. The illusion that we experience is not of Earth. The illusion is the empty space of the universe where Earth shouldn’t exist at all, and every tick of the clock saturates the far-flung dream with a sense of realness.…

Stop Struggling: 10 Tarot Cards to Move You Forward

  784 words

Often we think the external chaos we witness reflects our own internal strife, connecting us to the world’s pain when in fact it may be the opposite: the seeds of our discontent lie deep within us and we conveniently shift blame to others. Maybe life isn’t going right. We knock on locked doors: applying for elusive jobs, seeking moves without luck, stagnating in relationships, feeling alienated. We hit one more rocky patch or feel taken advantage of yet again. We then see…

2017: The Beginning of a New Consciousness

2017: The Beginning of a New Consciousness

by Daniel Mitel

A lot of people think that being spiritual means a complete detachment from the body, neglecting this world’s daily activities and isolating themselves alone in a cave. This is the wrong idea, especially after December 21, 2012.

On December 21, 2012 we witnessed a special event that happens almost every 13,000 years: for eight minutes the centre of our Galactic Sun, the centre of our Sun and the centre of Mother…

Jane Roberts, the Seth Books: An Overlooked Giant

“You make your own reality. There is no other rule.” The phenomenally simple yet powerful plainspoken statement comes from a gestalt awareness that has lived numerous lives and is older than the Earth itself. Eighteen volumes were dictated by an entity calling himself Seth through author Jane Roberts speaking in trance, from the late 1960’s until her death in the 1980’s. Her husband at her side transcribing her words, it came to be called the “Seth material”. Her books now in reprint,…

Where is Love & Acceptance ?

People spend a lot of energy pursuing love, approval and appreciation. Thinking that once found, it will make them whole, complete and give them peace. Does it?

I've noticed that when I seek love or approval it is elusive and hard to find. The pursuit itself leaves me feeling insecure, unloved or lacking in some way. Why is that? The more I want it, the less I find. If searching for something outside of myself leaves me aching then perhaps the solution isn't outside but…

Is Juice Fasting Really Fasting?

Just as there are different reasons for fasting, there are several definitions. Fasting is often used as a means of weight loss, detoxification of the body for medical reasons, or as a spiritual practice. Done as a spiritual practice, fasting is defined as abstention from food for the purification of one’s motivation.

Some people balk at juice fasting because it does not include the abstention from food. While this much may be true, juice fasting can have real benefits is practiced…
