I don't often make blanket statements or recommendations. I believe we are all on our own path with our own purpose and live lives that honor that. However, I have found one thing to be true across the board no matter what. Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say that I have yet to come across an exception.
Your first thought at the end of this post might be that you are the exception. And who am I...
How much time do you spend reflecting on your past?
If you're like most people, reflections tend to fall on all of the times you misspoke, misstepped, misunderstood or simply missed out. Our present can be plagued by I should have done _____________ differently from the past, which has a grave effect on your future (not to mention ruining the present moment).
Does your mind wander into the future?
For many, this brings worry about the unknown. Stress over that which...
I believe there are many options for paths to travel here on the physical plane that we call Life, Reality, Earth. I reckon they each come with different roles and reasons.
I can only speak for what I've learned on the path of the sacred warrior, that which I travel this time around. If that is also the one you are walking in this lifetime, here is one of the most valuable lessons I've gained that has helped make the journey smoother.
There have been times in your life when you've been treated unfairly.
Someone hurt you when they should have protected you.
Your cries for compassion have fallen on deaf ears.
Somebody told you "I love you" but their actions didn't agree.
When you needed to be embraced lovingly, you've been treated cruelly.
That may be common knowledge, but it is something I learned not long ago. After I got sober, fun was one of the many parts of my life I had to reexamine. It was one of the most surprising parts of my life I had to reexamine.
It never occurred to me that fun is a conscious choice just like every other area we talk about in here. There are no objective fun activities.
I think reading about spiritual growth and self-development is super fun,...
I learned some invaluable lessons during this difficult time that resulted in gifts I can carry with me for the rest of my days (which will hopefully all be spent somewhere safe and comfortable).
That may sound a little strange. Your first thought...
If you've come across any kind of healing work, whether that is with a shamanic practitioner, coach, guide, reiki master, and sometimes even with a traditional therapist, you have likely heard the word "container" used. It is a somewhat elusive term that is the cornerstone of what makes healing work possible.
Put simply, a container is a safe space created and protected by...
It's not something I share with a lot of people. I thought I'd switch that up today by telling you a bit of my dream.
I have many personal aspirations, such as becoming a published author, traveling the world as an exceptional speaker and facilitating life changing retreats in amazing destinations. However, my BIG dream is a lot quieter than all...
Self-love is wonderful all on its own. It will change your life, your relationships, your finances, your desires, pretty much everything. If there is only ONE thing to invest in, I'd say self-love hands-down.
As we discussed in an earlier post, a big part of self-love is knowing your Self. I always say "you can't love it if you don't know it, and you can't...
We are the last ones who had to use fat, heavy encyclopedias to get facts and information.
My generation is the final one to have to remember phone numbers, birthdays and how to get around town without GPS.
We can remember a childhood where imagination and innovation were our source of entertainment not...
