Managing the Current Intensity

The current astrological influences, this week especially and this month, can test our ability to stay centered. The energies have been building to the Saturn-Pluto alignment this coming Sunday but before then we have a powerful Lunar Eclipse on Friday. This will have a high impact on the emotions. Here’s a link describing the astrology this week. For the empaths, and especially females, it’s also worth noting that in the […] Read more »

Break Through Your Barriers in 2020

There are times in our spiritual journey when we find ourselves grappling with the most intense inner conflicts. Rather than confront them, we would sometimes prefer to hide under the covers. We can try to deny that there’s an issue waiting to be addressed, or pray to be rescued, but deep down we know that we’ll have to choose. We can soften the strain by remembering that our power to […] Read more »

Only Compassion

If you’ve ever suffered any sort of trauma, whether that’s a serious accident, a sudden loss, betrayal or illness, you know how much pain that can bring. Experiences like these can be quite devastating, draining your life force. If the painful energy isn’t released, it lingers with regret, guilt, confusion, self-doubt, anger and many other imprints. So it’s important to do one very simple thing: acknowledge to yourself, “This hurts.” […] Read more »

Reconciling Our Relationship with Mother

Humanity has had a conflicted relationship with our Divine Mother. We’ve needed her and refused her, been devoted to her and distorted her. Divine Mother, Earth Body and Our Lightbodies With the macrocosm reflected in the microcosm, what happens in the Earth body is what we feel in our physical and energy bodies. If we’re to truly reclaim our inner feminine in sacred balance, we must welcome the return of […] Read more »

Synthesizing Fears of Abandonment & Engulfment in Relationship

Opposites attract. While this can be very complementary and balancing in intimate relationships, it can also be very challenging while the pain body is healing. This means that two people can come together with gifts that offer the opportunity to build great synergy between them, but what can stand in the way of that creativity are the core fears that are opposing each other: fear of abandonment and fear of […] Read more »

When Togetherness is Too Much

Finding the balance in togetherness can be tough. You want connection but sometimes it just feels like too much – too much talking, too many questions, and too much closeness. You feel anxious when you’re required to spend too much time with your partner/spouse. It feels smothering. If this describes you, then unlike many people who fear abandonment, you fear being engulfed. For you, the childhood wounds of not having […] Read more »

The Key to Healing Abandonment

It’s quite common to feel abandoned. Whether you were separated accidentally from Mom/Dad as a child, felt left behind during their divorce, or shaken by the death of your parent, the trauma lingers. Perhaps you felt alone and unsupported when your needs weren’t met repeatedly. Abandonment remains emotionally painful if what you learn as a child is a mis-trust of others, uncertainty that someone will be ‘there’ for you when […] Read more »

A Simple Act of Love

Children need to hear it. Animals rejoice in hearing it. Spouses, partners, friends and cherished ones certainly appreciate it when it’s said. And so it’s no less important to say this to ourselves – “I love you”. But do we? It’s fairly commonly understood that in our spiritual journey the primary lesson we’re here to learn is self-love. Self-forgiveness comes a close second and they are braided together with grace […] Read more »

Pressure to Flow with the Natural Laws

When we’re flowing with life we know it. Tasks seem effortless and things go smoothly. We feel light, and we take things in stride, no matter what comes our way. I distinctly remember one experience where in one afternoon I prepared a workshop, created all my materials to display at a separate conference, and wrote another presentation. I chanted and danced too! Despite the deadline, the hours of work ahead […] Read more »

Choosing Life or Anti-Life

There are times when we have to choose between what’s going to move us forward or what’s going to hold us back. Often, we do want to move forward. We want to be free of the wounding, the pain, the dogma, the “small me”, the matrix and that which simply makes life dull. But then when it actually comes time to choose, we hold back and think that we’re better […] Read more »
