I can look at my life in a way that makes me hopeful about the future

Tough times come to pass, they don’t come to stay. Even when tough times are passing thru, it doesn’t have to be a bumpy ride for long. It takes practice to be able to expect and believe that something better is on the way.

Here’s 2 ways I can look at my life:

1. I for whatever reason find myself in a pickle or 3, things not going my way, not enuff $$ and I can see no way out. I can see that as a hopeless situation with no resolution OR I CAN LOOK AT IT ANOTHER WAY. A WAY THAT HELPS ME ATTRACT A BETTER RESULT. The other way I can look at the same situation is this:  Continue reading

Expect and believe you can find your place in the new world

This is a very sacred and holy moment in time. CERTAINLY KNOW that even as the world as we know it may be changing, a new world will be emerging that we can find our place in. EXPECT AND BELIEVE that you will not miss opportunities when they come, and come they will. The tarot card The Lightning Struck Tower depicts a breakdown in the current situation and something preferred emerging from it. DON’T FEAR the new world which now seems in chaos. It will come to order in a way that you feel comfortable with, I promise you.

You can be a Vision Keeper for loved ones in the path of the storm

The Weather Channel just reported 50 million people are at risk today from the approaching storm.  During times like this, it’s important to remember that if you’re in the path of it, prepare as well as you can, then know that it can pass right over you and NOT leave you devastated.  Your home can be left standing when all around it may not. Remember that is a possibility and it’s tied to your belief and expectation.  It’s possible for every one of us to experience the storm fully, yet be unharmed and un-inconvenienced by it. Knowing that and believing that helps.

BE A VISION KEEPER FOR YOUR LOVED ONES IN THE PATH OF THE STORM

If we’re NOT in the path of the storm but have loved ones who are, we can help them right where we are, sitting in bed in our pajamas. When The Weather Channel  shows the storm front moving closer and closer, we can watch the storm image on the screen with the sound muted, take it into our meditation and do some Vision Keeper work.   Continue reading

Easter 2018 ~ We Rise Anew Only When We Forgive The Past

What are you ready to roll the stone away from and release?

Today we celebrate overcoming being hung up, rolling the stone away and rise anew into the emergence of our Sacred Self.  We forgive ourselves and each other.  When forgiveness takes place, we enter into that holy space to accept healing, love, and joy. Healing takes place when we forgive and heal everything from our past, leaving no stone unturned, no person passed over.  We become healers when we have healed our own past, and made peace with all persons.  That makes us a very powerful force in this world. This Easter I am grateful of this reminder. I liken it to forgiving everyone everything before coming to the altar to pray.  It’s powerful stuff and it’s the stuff true unconditional Love is made of.  Only Love is real.  Everything else is illusion.  Adding to the confusion.

Spiritual hypocrisy or just part of the process?

Facebook Friend Durga Adriane writes, “I’m just gonna say it: As much as I LOVE my yoga, Ayurveda, Hinduism, and Eastern spirituality- (and don’t get me wrong, I do love my people in that community as well)- when it comes to hanging out and being around folks, 99% of the time I would rather be around a bunch of drinking, swearing, partying, sometimes-smoking musicians. “But why?” my yoga peeps ask… because, frankly, the rocker bunch is almost always more straightforward and authentic, you can be yourself without people spiritual-judging you about how “enlightened” you are/aren’t “acting” and they don’t have this thing that you have to be all rainbows and fairies all the time or you “aren’t being spiritual.” I got SO sick of that when I was doing kirtan 3-4x a month, dealing with yoga studios, so-called “spiritual” venues, and all of the B.S. I kept encountering so I stopped. The hypocrisy was burning me out to the point that I didn’t even wanna do it anymore. (Not that I won’t again, I definitely will- but way more selectively.) -And I’ve been happier ever since!

Spirituality is not about rejecting parts of your human experience- it’s about evolving through them. We all screw up. The point is, are you trying to do better or just judging everybody else? Or would you rather shut up and play some music? 😎 And also, I’m not gonna stop saying Fuck. Ever.”   Continue reading

Am I willing to pay the price?

So I put off until the last day to get all my employer’s federal tax return stuff in AND to compile the quarterly docs for my tax chick. And I wake up with a giant head cold. No matter, it needs to be done or I’ll pay the penalty. Early on, I used to decide what to pay late according to how much the late charge was. Sometimes it’d be worth it to float a week. Sometimes I had no choice, like if a bill was due on the 6th and I didn’t get paid until the 15th. Even now I don’t always make good decisions, but I ALWAYS consider my consequences ahead of time. Not in money matters, I grew up and straightened that out, but in life. Whatever it is I am considering doing, am I willing to pay the price for doing it?
