Changing focus infuses more joy into our lives

Our days can be filled with more “must-do” than “want-to-do” tasks. After all, someone has to grocery shop, pay bills and earn a living. And while we might choose different activities if we could, appreciating even the most menial chores can lighten our mood and that of those around us. Recently, I realized I’d [...]

We can’t force our spiritual journeys

When I want something, I take steps to achieve it. But in my quest to get closer to spiritual enlightenment, I’ve found the harder I push toward that goal, the further back I slide. That’s because God decides where I’m to be and that’s all that matters. There’s a reason I’m where I am. [...]

It isn’t your fault you’re ill

Illness happens to everyone. Sure, it helps to lead a healthy life, but severe physical trials can strike anyone at any time. People ask me if they are to blame for their poor health.

3 steps to fully living: release, accept and receive

Everything that comes to us is on God’s schedule, not ours. And to get the most from every day, we can benefit greatly by regularly practicing three actions: releasing, accepting and receiving. #1 Release the past, limiting thoughts and the notion that you’re in control We can’t meaningfully enhance our life until we let [...]

Intuitive abilities aren’t evil

My transcendent night with the spirits in the Goldfield Hotel opened my third eye. Suddenly, I found myself receiving divine messages, and started seeing and hearing energies. I thought I’d lost my mind. But even worse, I’d believed I was destined for hell. Why? Because a church I’d once belonged to preached the evils [...]

The more you release, the more you’ll receive

Free will presents the illusion of power The Supreme Being gave us free will—the opportunity to choose our own way of thinking and acting. The Great I Am doesn’t force us to seek the divine, but instead waits with patience for us to say, “I’m listening. Please guide me.” It can be monumentally difficult to [...]

Living in faith means embracing the unknown

When I was 20, I planned my entire life. I’d marry at 25, have my first child at 27 and my second at 29. Later, I’d own a successful public relations firm and easily juggle my blissful marriage and kind children. And that’s how it turned out. NOT! Instead, my life veered in directions I [...]
