Awake and Aware
One day in the mid-1970s a freckle-faced nine-year old boy walked into an unremarkable public school classroom in Taree, a small town on the east coast of Australia. He sat down by himself. He was a quiet, shy boy who had been taught that his voice did not matter. These things he had learned from […]
Instead of telling you a bunch of good habits to pick up (hey, that takes work), we’re focusing on the ones you should break instead. Here, six really bad travel habits to put the kibosh on before your next trip.
Spiritual growth is not another thing to put on your to-do list. It is not something that can be forced. Like everything in our lives, it requires balance. Be forgiving with yourself and with the process.
We all experience empathy to some degree. Empaths, however, struggle to distinguish their own emotions from those of others. Highly Sensitive People are born with a physical sensitivity, that of a brain that is overly sensitive to stimuli of emotions, thoughts or activity. In many cases, HSP’s are so sensitive to subtleties within their environments that it allows them to feel the emotional changes within other people as well. However, not all HSPs are Empaths.
To love, trust and honor yourself is the ultimate foundation for any relationship. Real freedom is not necessarily doing whatever you want, whenever you want, with whomever you want. This is simply to be a slave to your desires. Remember that desires are fleeting and often endless. Real freedom is to be connected to your authentic self and making choices that are in alignment. Real freedom is a discipline of the heart. Real freedom is to sacrifice what is lesser for what is more. Real freedom is a commitment to love.
We are all energetic beings, made up of light energy, and the movement of this energy creates what is known as our frequency vibration. Our energy can move at a very high vibrational frequency, which will bring us more health, happiness and prosperity, or at a very low vibrational frequency, which will bring us the opposite. With that in mind, there are a few symptoms of a low vibration to let us know when our energy has dipped too far.
As humans, we have all sorts of needs – physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual. In fact, we have one major need in each of our chakras. As we meet these important needs, we naturally feel more fulfilled. Unfortunately, if we’re not consciously aware of our basic chakra needs and are not fulfilling them, our subconscious will try to fulfill them in ways that may be counterproductive to what we consciously want.
In honor of World Water Day, I invite you to take a moment to acknowledge the magnificent substance known as water. Water makes up over 70% of the Earth and over 70% of our bodies. Water sustains us, nourishes us, cleanses us, purifies us, and heals us. We don’t simply require water to live, we are water. Water is the life force energy of creation, the consciousness inside of us, and the key to universal truth. If you know these things, it is because the water inside of you is awakening. It is opening up and revealing itself to you. Express your gratitude to water for all it is doing for you and for the planet by saying a water blessing today.
As a life coach (a self-described “intuitive” one) and published writer of many books related to human psychological and spiritual development, I often get emails from people seeking clarity on certain issues. Sometimes these people book online sessions with me, but just as often I simply respond by email as fully as I can. So, […]
Like most of you, I have always been fascinated by water. Water has existed on this planet since the very beginning. For billions of years, water has witnessed everything on the Earth. I have often wondered, what does water know? What has it observed? What secrets could it share with us? Years ago, these questions led me to read the “Messages from Water” series by the late Dr. Masaru Emoto. After seeing the conscious response by water to words, music, and even thoughts, I knew water would be the next big scientific breakthrough. What I later discovered was that water would be the next big breakthrough in everything.
Health and well-being require a balance of the physical body, but also of the mental and emotional bodies. We are souls in physical shells. True health comes from nourishing all aspects of ourselves.
