Why Rejection Can Be a Blessing

“A rejection is nothing more than a necessary step in the pursuit of success.” — Bo Bennett The Fear of Rejection Rejection is not something we take to kindly. Rejection, for most, is something to be avoided at all costs and if encountered we tend to slip into self-doubt, shame, self-flagellation and a variety of […]

The Positivity of Objectivity and the Time of Transition

The Positivity of Objectivity and the Time of Transition

There also seems much confusion about what is supposedly “positive or negative”, “subjective or objective”. Some people claim that there is nothing like “objectivity” and all is subjective. Everything depends on how we look at things and quantum mechanics, so they say, shows us that there is no objective reality or truth, but there is only “my” or “your” truth and we create our reality by the thoughts we have, what we like to see and what we focus on. But is that really so?

Self Love: The Importance of Consciously Valuing You

Self Love: The Importance of Consciously Valuing You

Self-love is a relatively new concept. Until fairly recently, the idea that selflessness is best has reigned supreme. Many carry around a vague notion of unworthiness (sometimes unconsciously) and we attempt to prove our worthiness to both ourselves and others through altruistic pursuits. Putting others first is considered noble, while pleasing oneself is often seen as inconsiderate, indulgent, narcissistic or thoughtless. The burning shame of hearing the words “you’re selfish!” from someone whose opinion we care about is something not easily forgotten. I have heard these mortifying words in the past, and I was left bewildered, wondering how someone who I held in such high esteem could not recognise the consideration I had for them. Was I not showing it correctly? Should I have done things differently, paid more attention to their expectations?

Learn Life Lesson #2 from This Sedona Vortex Video

All of us to navigate these two polar energies in our daily life, especially if we want to use our lives to serve others. In this video – the third in a video series of little lessons I learned while hiking Cathedral Rock in Sedona, Arizona, I share why it’s important to balance these two sides of ourselves. It’s a tricky thing to balance our in-the-moment self with our goal-oriented self. The part of us that wants to experience and connect with our surroundings represents our feminine nature, and the part of us that wants to conquer and divide, or in other words, reach those goals, represents our masculine side.

Ferguson and the ‘Us vs. Them’ Illusion

Ferguson and the ‘Us vs. Them’ Illusion

What the governor did, in the tense uncertainty preceding the decision, was pre-declare a state of emergency and activate the Missouri National Guard to help contain the possibility of violent, anti-police protests. He also appointed 16 people, including several of the protesters, to a newly created “Ferguson Commission” to recommend solutions to the racial problems plaguing that community, which the killing of Michael Brown last August made unavoidably apparent.

Are the masses of humanity still having a love affair with the Matrix?  If so, the time has come to break up! If there is one thing that the now classic movie The Matrix illustrates, it is the blatancy of a template reality.  Though offered under the guise of fantasy, this depiction caused curious and […]

Sovereignty Series: Lost in America

5 Simple Ways to Be Spiritual Every Day

5 Simple Ways to Be Spiritual Every Day

Are you what people call a “spiritual” person? I think I am – I like to meditate, say affirmations, drink herbal tea and pray. However, I also like to dance to hip hop music, drink coffee and keep up with the Kardashians.

You see, if you’re anything like me, you’re a spiritual seeker in a modern world, carrying a yoga mat in one hand and a vanilla latte in the other. You may find it challenging to balance your joy-seeking side with your human side, however, the good news is that we don’t have to choose between our spiritual selves and our human selves, we just have to choose between what brings us joy and what brings us misery.

Keeping Your Spirit in Check: 5 Questions to Ask Yourself

Weaving our way through this journey we call life wouldn’t be something I call an easy task. I would say that it’s comparable to staying in shape, which takes a great deal of will power. However, with the guidance of the enlightened soul and identifying the boundaries of the ego, we are given these gifts by way of life lessons to keep ourselves aligned on a path of spiritual truths.

Who Thinks Your Thoughts?

Who Thinks Your Thoughts?

Many people like to imagine how they would have responded differently to an unpleasant scenario: perhaps some pithy and scathing repartee to put the aggressor in their place, or some supremely composed nonchalance in the face of adversity. But these mental re-hashings and rehearsals have several negative effects, including: further encouraging sloppy, undisciplined and counterproductive thinking; distracting us from the present, wasting our time and energy; and the internally generated fight-or-flight stress response needlessly releases more cortisol into our blood, aging us even faster and suppressing our immune systems)—even though the moment has passed.
