I’m participating in a Free Virtual Meditation series organized by Soleil Wellness. The series runs April 16th through May 7th, Thursdays at 8pm Eastern. On April 23rd, I’ll be leading a Quantum Field Healing meditation. If interested, contact me for the Zoom link.
The world seems like it’s going crazy. Watch the news or scroll through social media and it’s easy to let disbelief and despair take hold of you. But I believe, at our core, humankind is essentially good. I believe that, under all the layers of wounding and societal programming, there is a spark of pure goodness in each human heart. This may sound like naiveté, but I prefer to call it faith.
I’m acting on this faith. Starting this Wednesday, January 15th at 7pm Eastern, I’ll hold a weekly Virtual Healing Circle to promote love and kindness in our world. This won’t be held in a classroom or other venue. There will be no registration, check-in, or fee. Each Wednesday around 7pm, you can join from anywhere in the world, wherever you happen to be at that time. Simply ground yourself, quiet your mind as best you can, and hold yourself in a state of love. You can remain in this state for as little as a few moments, or for as long as you’d like. While in this state, let yourself feel the inherent goodness of humankind, the true essence of who we are beneath the layers of dissonance. Let the love in your heart grow, surround you, and connect you with others who seek to heal the world. Together, we can do this!
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
What is a soul? There are so many definitions and theories and specifics, it can be overwhelming! It’s a huge topic, and worthy of all the attention and rumination is has received over the course of time.
But I think it’s really quite simple. Your soul is your eternal self. It’s the part of you that existed before this body was born. It’s the part of you that will continue to exist after this body dies.
Your eternal self isn’t bound by linear time, so it isn’t limited to just this one physical body that you’re using to read these words. It experiences life in many physical forms, in many different time periods, concurrently.
But even though your soul is eternal, that doesn’t make it better than this physical body that you’re now inhabiting. “Better” is a judgment, and souls don’t judge. Treat your physical body with the love, respect, and kindness with which you’d treat a precious loved one. Your physical self and your eternal self are on this crazy life journey together. Enjoy the ride!
This time of year, as the holidays approach, my thoughts turn to the topic of joy vs. obligation. Here’s what I mean…
We humans do stuff. All kinds of stuff. Our lives are full of stuff we “have to do.” But do we really? Are we doing things out of joy, or out of obligation? This crucial distinction can impact the quality of your life.
Yes, we live in this world (for now) and there are certain non-fun things we have to do. Let’s take laundry, for an example. I can’t think of anyone I know who enjoys doing laundry. It’s something we humans just have to do. But try turning “I hate doing laundry” into “I like having clean clothes to wear.” Or “I love it when my clothes are warm from the dryer.” Or “It’s a blessing to have a closet full of nice, clean clothing.” Take that obligation and view it from a perspective of joy.
If the majority of your activities are done out of obligation rather than joy, you may start to feel the strain of this in your physical body. Notice where in your body you feel pain or discomfort. What does this pain keep you from doing, or make it difficult for you to do? It’s likely a task that you don’t really want in your life. Can you take a break from this activity in order to give your physical body a chance to heal? Perhaps you’ll find a different way of accomplishing the task, one that is more in alignment with your joy. Or you may find that you didn’t really need to be doing the dreaded task at all, and were just stubbornly holding on to it out of a misplaced sense of obligation. (I speak from experience here!)
Trying saying this out loud: “I choose a life of joy, not obligation.” Then, one by one, look at each “have to do” in your life. Can you change your perspective on the task to take it from an obligation to a joy? Can you change the way you accomplish the task to make it more fun, more joyful? Can you give it up altogether? If you give this a try, let me know what happens!
The veil is thin this time of year. My latest meditation, Spirit Team Meeting, helps you reach out to your spiritual support team in order to open to their guidance and give them thanks. Your “spirit team” is unique to you, and can include angels, archangels, ascended masters, spirit guides, loved ones in spirit – even such creatures as fairies and dragons! It’s all about what works for you.
You can find this guided meditation here or on iTunes. Have a beautiful autumn!
It’s back to school time, so let’s go to Space College!
My son came up with the phrase “space college” to describe the concept of learning from the universe through meditation. I like the term, so I’m borrowing it from him. This guided meditation will help you connect with the educational resources of the universe in order to aid your intuitive development. You can find it here or on iTunes. Enjoy!
One of my kids is learning to drive. He doesn’t like it much, and didn’t drive at all for a while. (That’s okay with me. I don’t push my kids to comply with societal expectations.) Today, he got back on the road. He did fine, but felt scared. And then felt dumb for being scared. And then said something that moved me – “I guess it’s not dumb. I have a right to have fear. I just don’t need to have fear.”
We humans have a right to feel fear, along with all the other emotions. But we don’t need to carry our fears around forever. Recognizing and honoring our fears can help us to release them. That way, they no longer hold us back.
So how do you release a fear? My go-to method is tapping. Here’s a super simple process:
Gently tap on any of the tapping points (see image below).
Say “I release my fear of (whatever scares you).” Repeat this as many times as you’d like.
Stop tapping and take a deep breath.
Release the breath while letting go of the fear.
Repeat the process as needed until you feel the fear start to loosen its hold on you.
If you give this a try, let me know how it works for you!
