The meditation is suitable for any time we wish to have inner peace. We have all experienced the perception of crisis at one time or another. It can be a moment or a period in our lives. This is when circumstances suddenly or unexpectedly give rise to a pivotal turning point. Its level of difficulty or intensity can bring us into distress, and we can feel ungrounded, disoriented, worried, anxious […] Read more »

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 »

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 »

Grieving Our Losses and Humanity’s Fall

I remember it. More accurately I would say that I’ve felt it – the fall of humanity’s consciousness. I have felt the excruciating anguish, the pain, and the intense cosmic rage. This trauma is in the collective memory. It’s resided in our cells all along, but now, it’s more accessible than ever before, creating both liberation and challenges. The planetary consciousness is awakening into soul embodiment, the 5th dimension of […] Read more »

The Gift of Discouragement

Discouragement can feel awful. It’s heavy in the body and it can seem like your life force is being siphoned. (Sometimes it is!) It can be enmeshed with grief, anger, disappointment, confusion, despair, and other painful emotions. The thoughts that pervade your mind can be stuck in a mental looping of futility. You may replay a story: “I’ve tried and tried and nothing seems to work. I have persevered and […] Read more »

The Ego’s Defense of Feeling Unsafe

While there are many different types of ego defense strategies that keep us from embracing our highest expression, the one that I come across most often in helping others, and have known well myself, is “feeling unsafe”. Feeling unsafe manifests in varied ways. We mistrust others and avoid emotional intimacy. We can push people away to pre-empt being hurt again, and even isolate. We may prefer to control life with […] Read more »

Feeling Overwhelmed?

When we are feeling overwhelmed we are out of balance. Anything can take us in this direction and it’s easy to say, “Well, it’s just life”. But some reflection and a closer examination can reveal what is contributing to the feeling that “it’s too much”. Another word for ‘overwhelm’ is ‘overpower’, meaning that something is taking over our mind and/or emotions. So this then means that we are giving our […] Read more »
