Spirituality is one’s capacity to be guided. It is not about how much we mediate. Or how often we go to church. Or how many yoga poses or Sanskrit words we know. Or how much time we spend praying. Or how many Om pieces of jewelry we have. Spirituality is really about how much we get out of our own way and allow ourselves to be guided by God.

The truth is, happiness should not be our only focus, and continuously striving for it, to the detriment of everything else, can actually cause us to make lots of mistakes. Here are seven such mistakes, and how to fix them.
How does the radical shift beyond a life rooted in the habitual egoic patterns of the past–into a life propelled by the positive, conscious stance of the evolutionary self– really change things day-to-day? With access to the evolutionary self, what will you be able to do? And how will things be different?
If I ask you, “Quickly, in one sentence, what do you want most out of life?” I bet your rushed response is going to be something like, “I want to be happy, and have a healthy family, and a career I like that pays well, etc.” Your response is going to be so common and ubiquitous that it basically doesn’t even mean anything. Which is precisely why senseless, happy-go-lucky questions like this aren’t very helpful. And yet, this is precisely the kind of questions we often ask ourselves. So what kind of questions might you ask instead?
What the heck is the Matrix? The question alone invites intrigue and wonder. The Morphogenic Unified Field. The space-time continuum. The Wave. Oneness. Grace. Home. There are no barriers to the expression of this energy and there are no limitations for it. The limitations are in your own mind and with practice you transcend these limitations.

There are few things that most of us in this world seek and value more than health and happiness. In an attempt to attain health, we go through diet after diet, workout routine after workout routine trying to figure out what works best for us -and in many cases will keep us interested long enough to attain results. To find happiness we look externally for things such as a great job, the perfect relationship or an active social life to create the exact balance that best works for us in feeling good consistently. Rather than perpetually trying, why not learn by example? Even though we are all unique and no set thing works for all of us, here are 6 common things that healthy and happy people do every day.
Many psychologists believe that as we age, our perception of time begins to accelerate versus time actually speeding up. How can we slow down time? Studies indicate that biological changes in the human body that happen as it ages, such as reduced dopamine production in the brain, impact our internal clock. Furthermore, some believe that as we grow up, we have fewer emotional and arousing experiences – the first kiss, the first trip away from home, the first heartbreak. Such experiences are easier to remember and lead to higher time estimations.
Love is everything, and yet it can be so very easy to lose sight of its importance as we get bogged down with the stressors of daily life.

Here are my reflections as a psychologist and human being lovingly sharing this journey with you.
