Awake and Aware
In celebration, honor and recognition of Independence Day, it seemed appropriate to write about none other than “freedom”. Now, freedom is a concept that can mean many different things to many different people. One might consider freedom only in the context of nations, war, government and politics. Others might narrow it down a bit further to a persona level and say that freedom is in fact a state of mind and that true freedom involves taking full responsibility over the choices you make in your life.
“Act as if.” It’s a great line from the movie “Boiler Room” (and if you haven’t seen that movie before, check it out because it’s great!). It’s also a great line to remember when you are trying to use the Law of Attraction to bring you what you want.
Allow me to present an important distinction that you must become aware of if you wish to develop your intuition to profound levels. Appearances can be deceiving. A true master of intuition knows how to suspend judgment and see behind the surfaces of people, places and circumstances. He can sense the true nature of things, that which is their essence.
Synchronicity is a term coined by famous psychologist, Carl Jung. It is the appearance of “meaningful coincidences” in your life that are unlikely, ironic and sometimes very helpful. This phenomenon is a “wink” from the universe, a sign of your intuition and connectedness. If you’ve been experiencing synchronicity, you’ve been in the right place, at the right time.
Are You Just Flat Out Broken by the LOA? It can be darn right frustrating watching people around you manifesting their hearts desires and there you are feeling like you couldn’t conjure a pig in a poke! What’s wrong with your Law of Attraction prowess? You’re so sick and tired of hearing that you bring […]
Walking along urban streets, I’m continually astonished at the blades of grass poking up through the cracks in the concrete, the songs of the birds as backdrop to the traffic noise, the light of the sun finding its way around the ninety-something-degree corners of aging, brick buildings. Evidence of the irrepressible pulse of life surrounds me, dismantling the arrogant notion that we can stop the flow.
While I understand that to “be” something, you must fit the criteria of what “being” that certain something actually means. But when it comes to Spirituality, who got to decide and why do we all just go along with it? I also get it that with increased self-awareness, intuition, centeredness, connection to Source, the Divine, God or whatever name you prefer to use there comes the draw towards certain activities, types of people and even thoughts, as well as the draw away from certain activities, types of people and again…thoughts. But when we start to invest our own perceptual opinions onto something greater than ourselves; something that is meant to encompass everything and be bias to none (see all in love and everything as connected), to me it seems to not only defeat the purpose, but chip away at what it such an incredibly and personally beautiful experience to each and every one of us.
Most of us would like to know how long it will take for the Law of Attraction to bring us the things we want. The answer to this question is different for every person and every dream because there are several factors at play that can speed up or slow down the manifestation process.
Most parents, grandparents, relatives (and teachers!) want the very best for their children. Caring adults want kids to thrive. Luckily, any adult can learn how to teach the Law of Attraction to young children, and this is a valuable skill that can help a child succeed in life with health, wealth and happiness.
When the Going Gets Tough Life get’s hairy — let’s face it. “Perseverance, secret of all triumphs” — Victor Hugo Let me paint a metaphorical picture: You’re standing at the checkout, waiting to pay. You’re going to make a beautiful meal when you get home and you’re salivating at the very thought of those steamed baby […]
We at CLN want to acknowledge the open heart and sheer balls that Jon Stewart displayed on the Daily Show the evening of the shooting in Charleston, South Carolina. The man who gets paid handsomely for his jokester ways put the humor aside to seriously address the deep, dark issue of racism that is ongoing in this country.
By Omar Cherif I always held that we can unknowingly inspire others just by being ourselves. We only need to believe it can happen for it to happen. The following is a simple illustration of how between inspiring and being inspired, the process of transference of inspiration works both ways. Last year, I watched […]
Are the theories true and psychic ability is no more than our wiring becoming a little frazzled, or is the discovery and presence of these gifts an integral part of our spiritual journey, one that should not be suppressed and ignored?
Rev. John Dear: Like millions of others, I’m grieving the death of the nine church folk killed in the unthinkable massacre inside Charleston’s Emanuel AME Church on Wednesday night. My heart goes out to the families and friends of the dead, and the church members, and I offer all my condolences, prayers, blessings and love.
