AMA (Ask Me Anything) – Where Is My Soul?

Q: I have wondered about this for a long time and I am hoping that you can shed some light on this. Where in our bodies can we find our soul?

A: Thank you for your question and I am honoured that you have asked!!

The term soul is often times referred to as being the essence of who we are, and, we are all an expression of infinite intelligence. Our soul is an integral part of the whole so to speak.

The dictionary definition of the soul is “the spiritual part of your body that gives life to your body”. However, the dictionary does not indicate a physical location of the soul. I used to think that the soul lived in the heart area, but obviously by getting a heart transplant that wouldn’t necessarily also give you a different soul or make you into another person.

Usually when someone refers to his or her soul, they usually touch their heart area, and this would be more of a metaphor than an actual physical location.

Some ancients believed that the soul resided around the second chakra area – this would be the womb/gonad area (ovaries for women and testes for men) as this is where the physical life force and reproduction comes from.

Some writings (Vedic and otherwise) locate the soul at the base of the brain, and this conclusion was determined through observing the base of the brain as the hub of electrical activity.

Descartes, who was a French philosopher, mathematician and writer (mid 1600’s), felt that the soul was in the pineal gland area as it is in the geometric centre of the brain. Hence, the saying, “the seat of the soul”. The pineal gland is also located directly in behind the eyes and correlates to the biblical saying “the eyes are the windows to the soul”.

I feel that we are an extension of Source energy, and that extension is our soul, which is the reflective energy that is housed in our entire physical body. Our body is the vehicle, the instrument through which the soul experiences itself and expands. The human body has a developed mind and in its current physical existence, it can experience and review its actions if it so chooses (activating the power and Universal Law of free will/choice).

All in all, I feel that the soul is present and located by pinpointing our thoughts and desires. Attention (soul) goes where energy flows. Our soul is the breath of life; our soul is an essence just as the scent from a rose cannot be held in our hands, but its essence can be detected. The same would apply for the emotion of Love – it too can be felt and detected but not held in our hands.

I hope that this answers your soulful question, and in the meantime, let the wisdom of your soul guide you throughout your journey!

AMA (Ask Me Anything) – Moments of Doubt

Q: I am so grateful for my life; I am a stay-at-home Mother of two amazing children and we homeschool. We spend our days outdoors in nature, learning, laughing and playing. There are days that I feel totally grateful for my life, and then there are days when I feel unappreciated, totally exhausted, and I begin to question my path. Since I am home full-time with my children, I don’t work outside the home and at times I experience feeling frustrated and financially limited. What should I do in these moments of doubt? How do I know I’ve made the right decision? Can I have the best of both worlds and stay sane?

A:Thank you so much for having the courage to share your most excellent journey and questions!

Your phraseology is magnificent, and I can feel your loving intentions embedded in your experience. You are absolutely on your path and it is natural to feel doubtful, indecisive and overwhelmed at times, after all, you have chosen to undertake the most challenging and currently one of the most unrecognized “vocations” on the planet!

There is no official training for what you have chosen, rather; it is fresh and new adventures every day. As of today’s writing, there is little, if any preparatory, official edification or coaching course work available that can prepare anyone for the level of undertaking that you and many others have bravely stepped up to the challenge for.

What you are doing with your children is a gift from your soul to theirs. As your journey unfolds, any feelings of frustration or doubt about your choices will be alleviated when you observe that you are a teacher, and a student, to and with your children. This is new territory and experiences for you and them every day!

Isaac Asimov who was a prolific writer having written and edited more than 500 books and countless letters said it best when he stated “Self education is, I firmly believe, the only kind of education there is.”

Release all doubt that you have as doubt only serves to hinder your experience. Choose to challenge yourself whenever you find yourself experiencing any doubt or misgivings of your journey and doubt the doubt. Doubt can easily be shifted to a sense of wonder and curiosity rather than maintaining a fixed sense of unease and emotional-intellectual discomfort. It is natural to feel what you feel as there isn’t exactly a crowd at the leading edge of homeschooling, however, there are more and more joining you every day!

Homeschooling is becoming more progressive and common than it was even 5 years ago, let alone 10 or 20 when it was considered plain “weird”, even though the results of homeschooled children were (and still are) astoundingly successful. You are providing your children with the opportunity to be the creators that they naturally are, expressing themselves in “real time”, evolving on all levels, engaging in creative, imaginative and critical thinking processes. Everything takes time to unfold and cycle, so please be easy with yourself, think from your heart and trust in the wisdom of your soul as you continue with what you are doing.

The traditional corporate job arena is replete with yang aspects of performance, drive, achievement and competition, and these attributes are validated, encouraged and rewarded. Whereas the nurturing, creativity, integrity, support, wisdom, Love and 24/7 presence that is required to successfully do what you have chosen to do has all but been ignored, however, this too is shifting as more people gain awareness in their awakening process.

The financial limitations can be discouraging at times, but only if you choose to allow that to be your point of attention. When you weigh the pros and cons of going into the traditional workforce versus staying with your children, I feel that you will quickly realize your answer. Yes, money will buy you and your family more things, but is it more things that are required?

The days that aren’t quite what you had in mind in terms of “sanity” are simply catalysts for your growth as once you have one of “those” days you quickly shift into having days that are spectacular. Our lives’ cycle, and each cycle in and of itself is integral for our growth. A rapid way to ease yourself back into a place of effortlessness is to find something to feel grateful for, even if it’s a thought of gratitude for having the experience itself.

It is interesting that when you are feeling gratitude and joyfulness that any financial limitations are the last thing on your mind, and honestly, true abundance is having what you need when you need it. Choose thoughts and feelings that continue to uplift you and observe your children; they are natural indicators to how quickly an emotion can shift from one flashpoint to another.

Do what you can to facilitate engaging with like-minded souls, as they will provide a support system that will be of benefit to you as well as taking turns exchanging services, ideas, and time with one another.

You are a pioneer creating a pathway that someday your children and other children who are also being homeschooled will say, “When I grow up, I want to homeschool my children!” Your choices are deeply appreciated, admired and respected by more people that you realize. I wouldn’t be surprised to someday see the entire homeschooling concept become part of the “traditional” curriculum study, somewhat akin to the parenting classes that are taught in high schools today.

There is no training for this “career”; rather, this is live, real life, real time – every moment of it. What an amazing journey you have chosen to embark on with your children.

Releasing judging, comparing or criticizing yourself as well as releasing what you think the world expects of you and simply focus your energy on how you are fulfilling your path will bring you much relief. There is a powerful movement afoot, and it is chock-full of Beings that are embracing acceptance of themselves while simultaneously releasing what no longer serves them. Releasing the “other world” (i.e., corporate) that is full of rigid rules and expectations simply serves as an opportunity for you to create expansion of your desires and create an improved situation for yourself.

Keep on keepin’ on! You are shining bright and illuminating the path for thousands if not hundreds of thousands of others – these are beautiful gifts of intuition, originality, trust, courage, wisdom, Love and integrity that you have within you. Shine your gifts with resolution and radiance; after all, you are a magnificent expression of infinite intelligence!

An Epic New Year – Bringing Love Into the World

Yay – we made it!! It’s official over, and another new year is ahead of us. Personally I can’t wait for this year’s experiences to unfold, as I know in my heart that they will be epic ones!

Personal growth, awareness, and ongoing awakening are high up on the list of activities for this upcoming year, and this has already begun. Hang onto your proverbial chinstrap and get ready for an exciting roller coaster ride as your e-motional heart intelligence develops and guides you. This growth opportunity is to serve you in connecting to the truth of who you really are, and that is the physical embodiment of Love.

Many of us will experience significant shifts in our relationships as this governs how we interact with the world around us. Allow these transformations to take place with ease rather than resistance. I regularly shift my awareness to knowing in my heart that whatever is taking place is designed to happen. This knowing allows me to accept and then release any sense of controlling the outcome of a situation.

How we relate to others will be a catalyst to seeing within ourselves and our truth of who we really are. Remember that you and all your fellow earth travelers are all playing staring roles in our development in this journey called life.

The ending of 2014 felt like a calming, gentle exhale. Upon awakening Thursday morning and becoming conscious of my first in-breath I felt the words “possibilities, potential, abundance and divergence” come bubbling to the forefront of my heart.

The words, “possibilities, potential and abundance” were very clear for me; however, I chose to relax with the word “divergence” until I received greater lucidity. I was shown that divergence would be the epic potential of humanity realizing and utilizing their gifts of freethinking and consciously focusing thoughts on letting go of the conditioned filters that have kept us enslaved to a system of beliefs that no longer serve us. Staying fully conscious, engaged with open thinking, unlimited possibilities and fluid creative experiences will become the new pattern.

Creating the space for what will serve us is critical at this point, and we do this by releasing what no longer serves us. As the saying goes “Out with the old and in with the gold!” Think in terms of creating space for new energies to manifest into the abundance that you are worthy of. I started the purging, cleaning and clearing out process here in my own home and I have overheard my family saying “Hide it or nail it down because Mom’s gonna find it and throw it out!”

Your intuitive self will always help guide you along throughout this journey. Be okay with observing through the eyes of Love when people, places, things and events begin to be shifted or removed from your experience. At first glance, it is a natural and reflexive response to experience feeling saddened at this process. However, once you engage with your intuitive insight you will see that there is a bigger purpose that is proportionally related to your worthiness that is happening. You will then begin to appreciate the magic that is happening for you and not to you.

The journey is always about soul growth!

The inner light within all of us is continuing to shine brighter and stronger every moment of every day. The truth of our magnificence and power of creating our realities is becoming understood as a natural way of Beingness.

The level of events that are coming into humanity’s awareness as being nothing more than a contrasting experience in order to serve us in our awakening hearts are increasing exponentially. Systems that do not serve us and have only enslaved us are quickly crumbling and falling apart. New ways of interacting with one another are becoming the norm; one needs only to take a quick look around and see that what used to be considered as rigid and dogmatic truth was only ever a distraction to keep humanity oblivious to their fundamental power and magnificence.

But back to the epic-ness of this year; some things that I am excited for and that is more personal growth. In the past, when faced with a situation that I found unpleasant, I would push against it, point it out and want to make a legendary “mountain out of a molehill” about it. Now, I simply and peacefully observe the situation and move through it without becoming attached to the outcome. All of this took quite a bit of practice and although there are still situations that will come into my consciousness I now recognize them as learning opportunities of grace rather than taking the situation personally.

As you reflect back on 2014 and the experiences of your past, consider sending yourself and all other earth travelers a heartbeat of gratitude for their participation. It is through our experiences that we awaken, heal, release and transform into bringing love into this world.

Leaving you with Epic Love!

“Make no mistake about it – enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It sees through the facade of pretense. It’s the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true.” – Adyashanti

“Once the soul awakens, the search begins and you can never go back. From then on, you are inflamed with a special longing that will never again let you linger in the lowlands of complacency and partial fulfillment.” – John O’Donohue

“For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.” – Cynthia Occelli

Remember Who You Are

We have just come through some very significant energy shifts again, and this last one was a biggy! Personally, my energy was scattered in a million different directions and then it dawned on me that I was experiencing energetic turbulence.

Things are rarely what they appear to be and exactly as we expect them to be! We are shifting, we are awakening, and we are remembering who we are.

The coding, programming and learning that we were given since birth is falling away and the truth of our magnificence is shining brighter every moment.

I was conditioned to think that I was only worthy of being loved if I was being loved from outside of myself. This is backwards to who we are. We are to love ourselves first, as we are love and then love comes to us; we become love.

We are love, we were born to love, and we are creators and powerful ones at that. We are here in this earth realm to do what we love to do and passion is our inspiration.

We are quickly transferring through the levels of being wounded, to becoming warriors to emerging as the true masters of our own destinies.

Release judging yourself, this is old news. The moment that you let go of your perceptions of not being enough, of letting go of who you are not, you free yourself to remembering who you really are. After all, this is the greatest form of healing – waking up from what you are not.

Live your life big, love what you are. You are not separate from the Divineness, you are the Divineness!

As a Being of energy, you have the ability to perceive everything that is or is not, through your unique perspective. Everything that you are experiencing is part of awareness, part of the infinite ocean of all that was, is and ever will be. We are all an extension of Source consciousness experiencing in the world of duality, and this life experience is to allow you to create, release what no longer serves you, and transform into your authentic self. Do what you love to do!

Release keeping score with one another, not everyone is at the same point of understanding. Fill yourself with the power of remembering who you are … a magnificent expression of infinite intelligence. Inhale Love and exhale gratitude, your journey is getting better by the moment.

Choose thoughts, actions and words that are uplifting and of service to others as that is your true calling. Whether you are an architect, planting a garden, shoveling snow, providing consultations, paving a road, programming computers, taking photographs or coaching a team – do this from your heart.

Create an experience for yourself that is authentic by remembering who you are. Strip off the layers of conditioning that were given to you by the world, they are simply limitations and keep you in bondage.

Keep dreaming, keep going, believe in yourself, keep an open heart and mind to all possibilities, shine bright and remember who you are.

Leaving you with memories of Love!

“When I accept myself I am freed from the burden of needing you to accept me.” – Dr. Steve Maraboli

“The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness.” – Lao Tzu

“Relax, let go and remember only one thing; you are a witness.” – Osho

AMA (Ask Me Anything) – What Is The Spiritual Purpose of Dementia?

Q: My husband has recently been diagnosed with advanced dementia and now Alzheimer’s disease. I am his “soul” caregiver and I am struggling to come to terms with what is inevitably going to be his outcome. He was a brilliant thinker and gifted musician, yet to see him today, he is a mere shadow of who he used to be. Most days are very challenging for him and myself included, but once in a while he has moments of clarity and seems quite “normal”. Can you expand on what the spiritual purpose of this awful condition could possible be?

A: This is an experience that is essentially a call to Love.

There are many physical correlations as to the physical manifestation of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Many cases are found to be created from exposure to heavy metal toxicity (usually aluminum) that builds up in the physical body. This in turn become deposits, lesion-like onto the brain itself that creates a clogging effect on the neural net pathways. However, there are numerous other situations where the person was not exposed to these toxins, yet still created the outcome of their nervous system slowly deteriorating.

There is a deep desire from the soul for healing and completeness throughout this experience. Alzheimer’s and dementia help to reorder the fundamental personality that the person carried with them in this lifetime so that a new birthing process can take place. This will ultimately lead to soul development, evolution and expansion.

From your perspective it can be emotionally painful to observe the progressive unraveling of the personality of your husband. This now becomes a call to Love for yourself, and a perfect opportunity to practice being gentle with yourself, self-love and self-care. Please be ready to ask and receive assistance from others as this journey for both of you continues to unfold.

Your husband is ultimately teaching you to let go of the past (who he used to be) and to accept him where he is. Try to see this situation through the eyes of Love and understand that you can choose to be supportive of your husband’s transition and transformative experience. Although this may sound unusual, this is his opportunity to receive unconditional Love, as well as an opportunity for you to enter his world wherever he may be at that particular moment. Your husband is viewing the world through the eyes of a child and will soon release his awareness that anything is “wrong” and that everything is “right”. At that point, he will be very much present in the moment and very peaceful – a gift to be cherished.

When Love reveals its self as the natural instinct that it is, you will easily accept and honour your journey as well as that of others.

AMA (Ask Me Anything) – What is Happening to Time?

Q: I have noticed lately that time just doesn’t seem to be like it used to be. What I mean by this statement is that lately I have begun to feel like time is collapsing in on itself and that the past, present and future are all happening simultaneously. There are days that feel like an emotional rollercoaster and I’ve had enough of this. Am I imagining this? Can any of this be true?

A: Your question is excellent and timely – grin! Humanity’s perception of time is changing and we are shifting as a collective consciousness from old ways of identifying our world around us to new ways. As Beings that are awakening, we are becoming aware of moving through time, as time is actually motionless.

This shifting of dimensional living is placing many people into challenging situations so that they are faced with the task of releasing what no longer serves them and experiencing evolution of their soul.

We are multi-dimensional Beings of energy and the shift that is taking place now is happening at an accelerated pace. There are many dimensions in which life exists, and we have been living in what was known as the third dimension. The third dimension was primarily energetically composed of inflexibility in thoughts and beliefs, rules, conditions, good vs. bad, and a high degree of analytical ways of living. As of December 21, 2012 (the 12-21-12 story of where the world would come to an end), the portal, or should I say energy point, of third dimensional living came to a conclusion. Any behaviour that continued after that point was simply like an echo, or a failing to notice that there wasn’t any energy to support that behaviour or thinking.

After 12-21-12 there was a steady energetic download that was being given to humanity for a year’s time and on December 31, 2013 (12-31-13) there was a significant re-boot, or re-set that took place so that all of humanity could integrate the downloads into their DNA (biological computers aka physical bodies). Now, people are becoming very aware that “life” is no longer what it used to be like, things don’t work the way they “used” to, beliefs are being explored with many more options available instead of the old third dimensional “either/or” mentalities.

Welcome to the 4th dimensional way of living and soon you will be migrating into the 5th Dimension. The fourth dimension is filled with opportunities of movement in thoughts and beliefs, forgiveness of self and others, and opportunities for self-reflection and inner enquiry leading to healing and transforming. In moving through the fourth dimension you become much more present and understand on all levels that the past, present and future are all taking place at this very moment.

We always have the power of choice of free will, always and all ways. One of the main trademarks for living in the fourth dimension is the awareness of observing, choosing and acting versus the 3rd dimension trademark of simply reacting. The fourth dimension experience brings with it many physical symptoms and some call these symptoms of “ascension” as we are metaphorically moving upwards, increasing our vibrational frequency and awakening through the dimensional shift.

Some of the physical symptoms of experiencing fourth dimensional awakening are memory loss, slight dizziness, tiredness, waking up at strange hours, excessive sleep and then not requiring much sleep at all, foggy thinking, heart racing unexpectedly, tears (lots), sudden emotional outbursts and then the all time favourite “releasing what no longer serves us.”

The fourth dimension is very thick, like a giant membrane that has a significant number of layers within it to help us to ease our way through the fourth to naturally shift into the 5th dimension where there is great peace. We can easily move about this world and others using our light bodies and we can choose to stay in our light bodies or move back and forth between our solid and light forms. At the moment, most of humanity is just beginning to consciously experience the edges of the lower fourth dimension, hence the awakening that is taking place.

When we live in the 5th dimension the experience of duality no longer exists and we are completely living the experience of love of self, love of others, love of the joy and happiness of others and love of all equally (non-attachment). The fifth level is beautiful and there are many levels above this as well, but I won’t get into them right now as a lot of the information that I have received is still very much conceptually abstract and I will need more experience to integrate it and test drive it to be able to explain it in “human” words. I did ask my guides to explain to me what the 6th dimension was like and they lovingly told me that at the moment it would be equivalent of explaining a computer to an ant, so, I will leave it at that for the “time” being.

Understand that most of humanity is consciously unaware that they are going through anything at all, yet they are sensing that something is different. Do your best to stay present, and in-joy the roller coaster ride; it just keeps getting better and better every moment. Honestly, there is no getting off the ride early unless you chose to — and then that would require you coming back and having a re-do and I know you don’t want to do that!!

As humanity’s perception of time collapsing continues to expand, we will recognize that heaven on Earth is already present and it is in the power of this very moment. Remember to take this inner power with you everywhere you go!

AMA (Ask Me Anything) – Back to School?

Q: My son is in his second year of pre-school and only goes two mornings a week (so only 4 hours a week in total). I can count the number of days on one hand when he does not become filled with anxiety, crying and very upset about going off to school. According to his teacher, once he gets to school he does very well in class, has a great time and is happy when I pick him up. The little break that I do get is nice and allows me to get a few things done, however, I am feeling so torn about this situation.

A: Wow, your question is pivotal at this moment in our calendar year and will relate to so many others having similar experiences. The children of the world are also awakening and very few of them can endure the system that we call education as it currently stands. Children are born ready and curious to learn about the world and their desires and interests are unique, just as they are. It is heartbreaking to think that your son leaves you distraught and then manages to conform (stuff his emotional stress) so that he can imitate the non-attachment behaviour of others. This early conditioning is just the beginning of how our culture and society has become so ill adept at living in a state of conscious wellbeing.

As adults we sometimes forget that school may not be the best place to learn anymore, especially in this day and age where so much information is now readily available. Between exploring outdoors, trips to the grocery store, daily house hold activities (food prepping, light housekeeping, organizing, etc.) and the internet which is by far the largest database of knowledge ever created in history as we know it, there is an infinite number of accessible ways to learn and educate.

There is a powerful wave that is in full tsunami mode and that being that traditional schooling is on its way out and homeschooling is on its way in, in a significant way! Hands on learning is by far the easiest and most proficient way of learning. As human Beings, we are experiential learners, it is how we are designed to grow and expand our knowledge, wisdom and love. Memorizing and taking a test to see what one has memorized is not learning, and it’s definitely not inspiring – this methodology did not work when we were children and it does not work today for our children either.

We are natural creators, born to explore and move our bodies in a physical way. Sitting in stillness for any length of time is simply conditioning and counter-intuitive to our nature. Allowing children to stay connected to their natural way of being encourages their creativity and innovation skills. Reading to children from a young age inspires a natural desire to learn, and to learn to read (and there has already been a number of studies that prove this to be an invaluable opportunity for ongoing and lifelong interests).

Many conventional schoolteachers are also becoming aware of the fact that the decreed curriculum that they are told to teach does not encourage critical thinking, rather, it teaches children what to think and not how to think. These schoolteachers are now withdrawing from the traditional education system, incorporating their conventional skills with what they know does work, and, are actively participating in the homeschooling domain with their own children.

If at all possible, consider home schooling your son and perhaps creating a small community of like-minded individuals who are also experiencing a similar situation. A co-op type of environment where other parents are willing to bring their skillsets to the “classroom” and share their knowledge with the children as well as each other. Having other adults in your community to rely on and to share the homeschooling activities will also help to inspire you as well as provide you with the much needed break in your day.

Follow your heart and let your creative energies flow. Your son will help to inspire you so that you can continue to nurture his creativity and growth. After all, he is one of many that are our future! Remember to teach from your heart and learn from the wisdom of your soul.

Authentic Response Ability

The reality of our purpose in being here is that we are an expression of infinite awareness realizing itself. That in and of itself is enough for the attentive earth traveller to continue experiencing through the expression of Love.

We are in an amazing time in our journey; this very moment is a perfect opportunity to embrace and understand our truth – our responsibility for our life purpose of being joyful and our ability to respond with compassion.  Think about this for a moment; the energies around us are shifting faster than we can knowingly imagine.  Summer has come and gone; fall will blend into winter and then it will be spring and all the while, we may be unaware that our journey is unfolding and quickening in pace.

Opportunities for our awakening are being presented to us every moment.  The prospects for noticing when we can act from our heart are happening more and more frequently. We can experience deep and profound transformation while still present in our earth journey, after all we chose to be here, to make a difference in our life and in the lives of others.

Be easy about your choices, think them through and consider something as simple as letting someone in line ahead of you, holding the door just one moment longer, smiling at a total stranger or sending someone a loving thought of gratitude, love, compassion and encouragement.  Allowing others to express themselves without judging, criticizing or comparing them to your vision of how they “should” be.

Become aware of your actions, thoughts and even more importantly your words and the tonality associated with them.  When you are mindful you realize that you are contributing in some way towards the happiness of all others around you – like a ripple going across a pond.

We can no longer continue to engage in conflict of infinite degrees; enough is enough is enough – the expression of Love is the only resolution.  What if we just released holding the experience as being the reason for our suffering and understood that it was our interpretation of the experience that was creating our suffering.

Your response ability for participating is all you need be aware of, not guilt.  We agreed prior to manifesting into our physical form that we would come forth and experience, discover, heal, release and transform.

You are always being re-shaped and re-worked as you journey through this experience called life.  In spiritual and mystical  understandings, all words, thoughts and actions are influences and everything that we think or say cascades into reality; energy follows thought!  When we repeat to ourselves the thought that we are good enough, loving, compassionate and worthy, we are creating situations that bring these thoughts to reality.

Renew your commitment to your true response ability; shining your Love light on your path.  Let others feel your compassion and allow the wisdom of infinite awareness experiencing itself to flow through your very being-ness, think response ability – you won’t be disappointed!

Leaving you with Loving and authentic response abilities …

“Each person comes into this world with a specific destiny, he has something to fulfill, some message has to be delivered, and some work has to be completed. You are not here accidentally. You are here meaningfully. There is a purpose behind you. The whole intends to do something through you.” – Osho

“Today, more than ever before, life must be characterized by a sense of Universal responsibility, not only nation to nation and human to human, but also human to other forms of life.” – Dalai Lama

“The thought manifests as word.  The word manifest as deed.  The deed develops into habit.  The habit hardens into character; so watch the thought and its ways with care.  Let that thought spring from love, born out of concern for all beings.” – Gautam Buddha

Shining Bright

I was over at the grocery store the other day and my guides had the Pink Floyd song called “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” playing in my head (sometimes they have good taste in music). They kept the chorus repeating over and over again until I said to them “Okay, I get it, I’ll shine bright”.

I went about getting my groceries and just as I was getting close to reaching for some grapes, a lovely elderly lady stopped her grocery cart right in front of me and said, “Do you know where the cherries are? They’re supposed to be on sale today and I can’t find them.” I looked around and found them for her and chose a medium sized bag-full and placed them into her cart. She thanked me and then went on to tell me all about her low-lights and challenges in her journey.

Her husband had transitioned recently and she missed him terribly. She said she wouldn’t have missed him so much except they always got along so well. She also told me that her only child and best friends had also transitioned. Everyone seemed to be leaving her behind is what she told me. Along with her health history she told me her real name was Alexandra but that everyone called her Alice, just like Queen Victoria’s daughter and that her name used to be very popular when she was a young girl.

As she spoke I kept seeing little sparkles happening all around her, but I didn’t want to tell her about that, so I just listened to what she wanted to tell me. The details of her life came pouring out of her like a river over-flowing its banks, and when she was finished I asked her if I could hug her. Her entire Beingness lit up and she answered with a resounding, “Yes, I would love that!”

I hugged her fragile little body and placed my heart right up against hers and sent her a flowing pulse of loving energies and I felt her heart sigh with relief. She just stayed in my arms for a while, soaking in the feeling of being embraced, a feeling that I’m sure she hadn’t experienced for what must have felt like an eternity. After all, all humans require human touch, a smile, a gentle act of kindness and compassion; it’s the power that keeps us alive, thriving and connected.

When she finally stepped back for a moment and looked at me she said, “What do you do for a living?” I told her “I help people find their truth”, and she then said, “You must be a psychic or something like that.” I just smiled and told her that probably her husband and daughter and friends wanted her to be as happy as possible because they were going to be waiting for her with open arms when she makes her transition. Her entire demeanour shifted and she stood taller and said, “You’re right! I never thought of that before! I am happy now and I will stay happy every day until I leave this planet!”

She then went over to her grocery cart and went on with her shopping. I am always so humbled when these experiences happen. Of course, when I got into my car after loading the groceries into the trunk and turned on the radio, the Pink Floyd song was just finishing …

Keep on shining!

“A healer’s power stems not from any special ability, but from maintaining the courage and awareness to embody and express the universal healing power that every human being naturally possesses.” – Eric Micha’el Leventhal

“Be glad that you have the opportunity to be alive at this time, and to be a part of that preparation for the coming influences of a spiritual nature that must rule the world.” – Edgar Cayce

“The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same.” – Carlos Castaneda

AMA (Ask Me Anything) – Trusting In The You-Niverse

Q: My question is around feeling stuck and having lost faith in the power of the universe.  It is challenging to trust that things will happen as they are meant to happen for the highest good of all when I am filled with doubt and wonder if there really is a purpose and deeper meaning to this journey.  Can you suggest a line of perspective, a mantra, a topic for meditation, an affirmation, or some sort of daily practice or thought that might assist in bringing me back towards believing in a deeper purpose to life?

A: Your question is very relative to what is happening in the world right now and will resonate with many other beautiful souls that are also having a similar experience. The feeling of being stuck and losing faith in the power of the universe is natural – especially when you continue to feel those thoughts. There is a great quote that I read the other day that seems quite fitting and it was written by Chuck Yeager who was the first pilot to have traveled faster than sound. His words of wisdom were “Just before you break the sound barrier, the cockpit shakes the most.”


Understand in your heart that everything is working out for you and for the highest good of all. It is important that you actively release all doubt and exchange the doubt with trust – trusting in the process.

Your life is made up of moments and how you choose to respond in each moment determines your reality. You are in the perfect place at this very moment to channel your beautiful energy by feeling your way towards only what you desire.

Release how you think things should be and keep your heart and mind open to the possibilities, potential and magic of this immediate moment.

The realm that we live in is a world of duality, and duality’s purpose is to create contrast. Through the realization of the contrast (of knowing what you do not want) you are able to create what you do want. Energy follows thought and everything that is form was once formless, it was once thought.

The deeper purpose of your life is to be joyful, and how you choose to reach the state of joyfulness is part of the co-creative journey with the power of the you-niverse. Practicing gratitude is an easy path to joyfulness and seeing your worldview through the eyes of gratitude will instantaneously transform your internal reality, which in turn will easily shift your external reality. Look for all that is good in your world and you will immediately notice the abundance and thriving that is available to you and your perceptions will also begin to shift.

A daily meditation practice would be extremely beneficial for you; set aside 15 or 20 minutes of your day to sit quietly without being disturbed by outside noises. As you sit comfortably, close your eyes and begin to focus on the feeling of your breath as it enters and leaves your body. Remember, the intelligence of the creator is in your breath and your breathing is what sustains your experience here in this earth realm.

The following mantras will support you as you consciously choose to focus your thoughts on a daily basis. I would recommend that you choose one mantra a day and write it out on multiple post it notes and place one in your wallet, on the dashboard of your car, in your bathroom on the mirror, by your computer and anywhere else that you feel you will need a gentle reminder of your thoughts:

* I am present to this moment – I am Love

* I am vibrating consciousness – I am presence

* I embrace the path of my highest potential – I allow

* I am open to the effortless flow of my life – I accept

* I am an unlimited Being of Love and infinite presence – I trust

* I am Love looking for ways to express itself – I Love

* I am a living light of Love – I radiate

* Each experience offers me a gift of awakening – I am grateful

Love is what we are all born with and the spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and the acceptance of Love back into our hearts. Remember to stay gracious and allow others to be who they are.

If you in-joyed this article and you are ready for profound personal and spiritual transformation, consider a personal intuitive consultation. Together we will co-create a journey of abundance, freedom, healing and transformation into the awesome Being that you always were!
