Personal growth requires pain and peace

The most productive, rewarding lives come from balancing cycles of pain and comfort. Like blacksmiths use fire and water to shape metal, we need both pain and ease to transform our lives. It is only through surviving tough times and then recuperating afterwards where we are forged into the people we are meant to be. [...]

God gifted you a body

“Not all who want to come to Earth and take a body are allowed this opportunity.” I stared at this passage that I’d free written in January. I had no idea what it meant. I prayed for divine guidance to better understand what I was being shown. After a few weeks, I received the [...]

9 ways to banish energy vampires

While working with a healer, I was told I had a strong, one-way attachment to an acquaintance who was siphoning my energy. While the practitioner did some work to lessen the cord’s connection, she said it was something I needed to work on. My energy level was low, leaving me weak, and this was [...]

Accept the love others give to you

Love—the ultimate super power—dwells in each of us. We create this powerful energy every time we think of those most special to us. With each adoring thought, we transmit emotional, physical and mental healing to the object of our affection. Allowing love to do its magic. However, since we possess free will, we must consciously [...]

Suicide won’t bring you peace

This post was been on my heart for years. I’ve been afraid to write this as I don’t want to upset those who have lost loved ones to suicide. If you’ve lost someone, I don’t recommend you read this. However, it’s time for me to be frank and share why no matter how hard my [...]

Get off the self-judgment wagon. Perfection is not attainable.

Like many of you, I’ve pushed myself to be better: a more loving, less judgmental person; a reliable friend; and a more enlightened being. I’ve learned to have grace and patience for others. That sounds positive, right? A good way to live one’s life. But I’ve found that I’ve missed a central point: compassion [...]

Don’t push away the darkness. Be with it instead.

Some suggest that if you are truly spiritual, you’ll eliminate your dark side so that nothing upsets you. Others believe that challenging times and dark emotions are signs that you are not good enough and are being punished by God. These ideas ring false to me as there is a purpose to our light and [...]

Don’t Wish for an Easy Existence

Some equate living a good life with living an easy life. This is a myth. We can’t live great lives—our best lives—without monumental loss. The hardships we endure steer us onto different paths, scenic and arduous treks we’d never make had life been comfortable. If we didn’t experience that devastation—whether it be the passing of [...]

Faith is powerful

When the mind embraces hope, it unleashes a powerful force: faith. When the heart relies upon faith, we develop a knowing that the Universal Power—God—is always present, always loving, ever patient. Faith frees us to live to our potential, to understand that all challenges bring growth and that we are never alone on our earthly [...]

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. They wonder if they’d still be sick if they possessed a stronger faith or if they’d just learn a specific lesson. [...]
