A friend of mine once told me she read somewhere: “Fear comes from not trusting that we can handle whatever comes our way.” Never have I heard such basic words that ring so true. Right now, we are being challenged on all levels, and the fear feels very REAL. When FDR reminds us “We have nothing to fear but fear itself”, we can understand most fear to be a concept based on something that hasn’t happened yet. It exists in our minds when we are not present in the moment, and can
How are you feeling today...? This is a powerful inquiry that we invite you to ask yourself every morning, as a meditation opening. With all that is going on in the world today - protests, riots, the looming pandemic and economic downturn - our emotions can run the gamut. However, the more aware we are of our feelings, the easier it will be to organize our day in a way that serves us. Maybe you are feeling agitated and need some exercise to blow off some steam, or perhaps you

How do you come to terms with having your everyday world stopped in mid-track? - all your plans, hopes, dreams now having come to a screeching halt until the unforeseeable future?... Actually, if you think about it, none of us are strangers to this. We all, at some point in our lives are called to deal with a reset of some kind, perhaps through the death of a loved one, divorce, the loss of a job, the diagnosis of a terminal illness. Leaving us adapting to a "new normal" afte
Anodea Judith, renowned authority on the chakras says: “The rainbow bridge is said to be that which connects heaven to earth; that which connects the mortal to the divine; that which connects mind to body; spirit to matter— and the seven vibratory modalities of the chakras that are so often correlated to the rainbow colors, represents that rainbow bridge that exists within our very selves right at the core. So each one of us is a connection between heaven and earth. Some of t

"...Take steps towards your desire and allow the Universe to manifest it into your physical experiential reality in ways the Universe will take care of." I found the above quote one day while pondering something a friend had said about manifesting the life she desires. One of the laws of manifesting is to know that what you desire already exists. Now. We tend to think of time in linear terms but I don't believe the Universe works this way. It's so easy for us humans to see wh
It's very difficult, these days, to keep a stable ground in joy, while there is so much unrest in the world. War, famine, suicide, genocide, open fire shootings, untruths from the political systems, mass poisoning of our foods from corrupt corporations, depression, recession, pollution. Mother Earth herself seems to be in revolt with devastating fires, volcanos, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis... so much tumult and strife.
What we fail to remember is that, from the beginn
