inner peace

feeling at peace with oneself

The Current Ascension Landscape – September 2016 and forward.

Pillars of Light

This is a very brief and greatly simplified description of some of the significant ascension changes currently taking place for us. However, it is done so with the intention of providing some context of understanding, and therefore, greater inner peace. As the Sun travels its ecliptic path through the star constellations, our consciousness is exposed to the natural harmonics of the zodiac, and each of these provide an opportunity for […] Read more »

Patience is a Virtue for the Unyielding

patience now

There are times in life when we feel pushed to make a move. We are pressed against the edge of the familiar and our sense of safety. We may feel a nudge or perhaps intensifying pressure to expand!! But before we do, patience is required – to be fully in the moment to yield to the obstacles that have stood in our way for so long, so that they may […] Read more »

Peace Begins With Me

'Om mani padme hum'

* I breathe deeply and softly * I think gentle thoughts * I walk slowly * I give gratitude to all my experiences today, even the difficult ones * if I experience any challenge with another person today, I view life from their perspective and find my connectedness * I make an effort to extend simple courtesies * I do something kind and unexpected for a stranger today * if I find yourself in conflict I ask myself, […] Read more »

Tree Teaching

autumn misty morning trail

I am a tower of green set afire, pulling heaven’s sun to soil. When I drop my leaves my stillness is unadorned. I lay bare my winter prayers that you may remember. I do this in trust. I am no less a tree when my colourful alchemy ends, no less living with purpose.   Copyright 2014 (Amâeil) Melinda Urban www.MelindaUrban.com All Rights Reserved Read more »

How to Transcend the Search for Acceptance

waiting

– accepting the difference between ‘should’ve’, ‘could’ve’ and ‘can’t’ As a psychotherapist, I hear it again and again – the cry of the wounded, inner child: “if only…”, “I wish they had…”, “they should have…”, and “one day they will…” This wishful thinking about Mom and Dad is often at the root of much of life’s dissatisfactions – wishing things to be different than they are. Even if you have […] Read more »

Do You Remember Where You’re Going?

into the unknown

On the conscious path we are reminded that we are on a journey and there is no destination. Our experiences are continuous and fluid, each a causation to another effect, rippling into infinite expansion, and weaving together with multi-dimensional trajectories. I know this to be true. However, I also have experienced timeline horizons along the long road home – points of arrival in time and space. One could call these […] Read more »

May they serve as gentle reminders to those on a conscious path.    Live in the Moment – You can only be here now. The past can be a […] Read more »

Adapting and Accepting Change

sign - road work ahead

Last month I wrote about the three stages of transition (awareness, acceptance and action) to help you during these times of immense change on Earth. Currently the ego’s perception of reality is being dismantled, and corruption, mental dis-ease, dysfunction, enslavement, deception, and false dependency are becoming increasingly transparent. All areas of our lives are being affected: jobs, relationships, health, finances, material possessions and social status. This instability in our outer […] Read more »

Crisis to Christed – a love story

devastation in Japan

This article was written in March of 2011. Japan still needs our love and awareness of the truth of the situation. Like many people in the global community, I have been keeping myself informed of the multiple difficulties facing the people of Japan following the earthquake, tsunami and the nuclear crisis. In this dismantling and clearing of old energies they are surely bearing tremendous loss. Yet, in the face of […] Read more »

Peace in Simplicity

Driving in the countryside at this time of year feels like waking up from a delicious, afternoon nap; you know that you have to get up and move onto to other things but the cells in your body balk at the idea of any hurry. As you linger in the peacefulness, your senses slowly stirring, everything just feels good. That’s the way I felt as I let the open road free […] Read more »
