The Total Solar Eclipse: A Powerful Tool To Reset Your Life

The skies are gearing up for a celestial spectacle on Monday, April 8, 2024, as we anticipate the arrival of another total solar eclipse.

This awe-inspiring event will cast its shadow across a path from Mexico through the U.S. and into Canada, offering a unique opportunity for reflection and renewal not just for those directly in its path, but for observers worldwide.

A total solar eclipse is more than a rare astronomical occurrence; it is a moment steeped in spiritual and esoteric significance.

As the moon veils the sun, we’re invited to consider what aspects of our lives might be ready to undergo a transformation.

This cosmic alignment beckons us to embrace change, urging us to leap forward into new possibilities as we let go of the past.

The anticipation of the eclipse has the potential to stir the soul, propelling us towards our true destinies.

This upcoming eclipse is not just a phenomenon to be observed with special glasses; it is a moment to be felt deeply, connecting us to the greater cosmos.

The alignment of the sun and moon can act as a powerful catalyst for awakening, offering a time to realign our inner selves with the universe’s vast energies. As these celestial bodies converge, their influence can illuminate the paths we are meant to tread, revealing what must be released to make way for growth and fulfillment.

On April 8, 2024, as the day momentarily turns to night, let this eclipse serve as a reminder of the cyclical nature of existence and our part within it.

The temporary obscuration of the sun invites us to delve into our own shadows, to explore the parts of ourselves that need nurturing or change. It’s an opportunity to reflect on our journey, reassess our direction, and renew our commitment to personal and spiritual development.

Consider the eclipse as a cosmic pause, a time to meditate on your life’s narrative. What chapters are concluding, and what new stories are ready to begin?

How can this moment of darkness rekindle your inner light, guiding you back to your purpose?

Use this time to journal, to set intentions, and to connect more deeply with your inner self and the universe.

As we stand under the eclipse’s shadow, let us also remember our collective responsibility to our planet. Inspired by the perspective gained from space, let this event remind us of Earth’s fragile beauty and our role in its preservation.

Let the eclipse of 2024 be a turning point, not only personally but also for our global community, as we seek healing and harmony with the natural world.

While this is a powerful event during which we can’t help but to look to the skies, the astral realms can offer us wisdom beyond belief at any given moment. You just have to know how to ask. Learn to seek beyond space and time to get the guidance you require at any given moment.

And you can learn to do just that in our bestselling Astral Wisdom course. Learn all about it right here >>

Exploring Easter: 10 Facts Beyond the Chocolate Eggs

Easter brings a whirl of color and joy, doesn’t it?

Ever pondered why an egg-bearing bunny becomes the season’s star, delivering treats to children under the cover of night? Or where the tradition of egg decoration, letting both young and old unleash their inner artist, originally came from?

And perhaps most intriguingly, how did the profound celebration of Christ’s resurrection intertwine with the whimsical tale of the Easter Bunny

Easter, rooted deeply in Christian tradition, blossoms today as a vibrant fusion of narratives, rituals, and customs drawn from a multitude of cultures and belief systems, some even tracing back to times before Christianity’s rise.

Yes, many Easter customs we cherish today carry the legacy of ancient celebrations.

Despite the modern-day commercial whirlwind of Easter — think oceans of plastic grass and a deluge of sugary Peeps — the core symbols and practices retain their profound meanings, celebrating life’s renewal and the awe-inspiring power of rebirth.

As someone deeply immersed in the realms of spirituality and energy healing, I find the rich tapestry of Easter’s cultural and historical layers utterly captivating. I invite you to join me as we delve into ten surprising truths about Easter, hoping to illuminate the deeper connections and meanings behind our beloved springtime rituals.

  1. Easter’s Ancient Fertility Roots

    “Easter” springs from Eastre, a spring and fertility goddess worshiped by ancient Anglo-Saxons. With the vernal equinox celebrating day and night in equal measure, these early festivities honored the renewal and promise of fruitfulness that spring embodies.

    This intertwining of rebirth and regeneration pre-dates Christian traditions, laying the groundwork for Easter’s association with new beginnings.
  1. The Easter Bunny’s German Heritage

    Surprisingly, the Easter bunny hops all the way from German folklore into our Easter traditions. Initially a symbol of prolific fertility due to their rapid reproduction, rabbits, or hares, became entwined with Easter celebrations.

    Merging pagan symbols with Christian traditions, the Easter bunny evolved from a deliverer of eggs to a bearer of sweets, a transformation credited to German immigrants’ tales of “Oschter Haws.”
  1. The Emblematic Easter Egg

    Eggs, universally symbolizing new life and rebirth, resonate deeply with Easter’s theme of resurrection.

    This tradition of decorating eggs, which spans cultures and centuries, embodies the spirit of renewal. From the red eggs of Orthodox Christianity symbolizing Christ’s blood to the intricately adorned eggs of Poland and Ukraine, these practices highlight the egg’s role as a vessel of life and hope.
  1. The Tradition of Hard Boiling Eggs

    The custom of hard boiling eggs during Easter has medieval roots, born from the necessity to preserve eggs laid during the Lenten season when their consumption was forbidden.

    With Lent’s conclusion at Easter, these preserved eggs became integral to Easter meals and celebrations, laying the foundation for modern-day Easter egg hunts and rolls.

  1. The Cross: A Symbol of Sacrifice and Victory

    The cross, central to Easter’s narrative, symbolizes not just the crucifixion of Jesus but also his victory over death.

    This powerful emblem reminds us of the transformative power of sacrifice and the triumph of life over death, encouraging us to find strength in our struggles and hope in our hardships.
  1. Easter Lilies: Purity and Resurrection

    The Easter lily, with its radiant white blooms, represents purity, hope, and the resurrection.

    Traditionally used to adorn churches during Easter services, these flowers embody the renewal of life and the purity of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice, offering a fragrant reminder of the season’s deeper spiritual significance.
  1. The Paschal Candle: Light of Christ

    Lit during Easter Vigil services, the Paschal candle symbolizes Jesus Christ as the light of the world.

    This candle, marked with the symbols of Christ’s wounds, is used throughout the Easter season and during baptisms and funerals, serving as a beacon of hope and a reminder of Christ’s enduring presence.
  1. Easter Breads: Sharing in the Bread of Life

    Across cultures, Easter is celebrated with special breads, such as Hot Cross Buns in England or Paska in Eastern Europe.

    These breads, often adorned with symbols of Easter and the resurrection, embody the sharing of the “Bread of Life” with the community, fostering unity and reminding us of life’s cyclical nature and the nourishment of the soul.
  1. The Washing of Feet: Humility and Service

    Commemorated on Maundy Thursday, the washing of the feet is a re-enactment of Jesus washing his disciples’ feet.

    This act, symbolizing humility and the call to serve others, challenges us to embody these virtues in our lives, encouraging acts of kindness and service as expressions of love and respect for humanity.
  1. Easter as a Spiritual Awakening

    Easter, with its rich tapestry of traditions, invites us to delve into its historical depths and spiritual essence. As we navigate these customs, we uncover layers of meaning that not only enrich our celebrations but also inspire us to reflect, renew, and reconnect with the profound messages of rebirth and redemption at Easter’s heart.

    Easter’s message of renewal and rebirth extends beyond physical realms into the spiritual. And it extends beyond any single religion. It’s a prime time for self-reflection, meditation, and chakra cleansing.

Embrace this season as an opportunity for spiritual reawakening, leveraging the inherent energy of rebirth to realign and rejuvenate your inner self.

Spring Equinox: 7 Methods to Clear Your Chakras

As the last snow of the winter season disappears from the ground and green stems start to push through the soil that has protected them from the harsh elements, the cycle of life begins again with the annual spring equinox. During the spring equinox, the plane of the Earth’s equator passes through the center of the Sun, resulting in the day and night being equal in duration — an astrological event of absolute balance.

The spring equinox is a time of rebirth for all life on our planet: plants sprout from the ground and colorful flowers bloom; animals emerge from hibernation to mate and give birth to new generations; and birds migrate north for nesting and nourishment opportunities. As winter places us in a life of darkness, the spring equinox is a time of joyful celebration as all life on Earth receives an extra dose of nourishing sunlight.

When the day and night are in equal balance, it’s no surprise that your body, mind, and spirit feel naturally energized (probably more so than you have at any time during the dark winter months). You may already have plans to spring clean your home — changing the batteries in your smoke detector, donating accumulated items that you do not use to goodwill, and cleaning behind the refrigerator — so, what better time to take stock of your spiritual house and do a bit of spring cleaning. Just like your physical home, the debris of everyday life can accumulate and cause clutter in your energy field; use the natural energy boost that the spring equinox gives you to clear away stagnant energy in your chakras and ensure you start the cycle of rebirth both healthy and happy.

The annual spring equinox: a time of balance, rebirth, and rejuvenation

March 19th marks the vernal equinox and official first day of spring, and the weeks before and after this significant date are a time of balance, rebirth, and rejuvenation.

Equinoxes happen twice a year (in the spring and fall), giving you the opportunity to use the natural balance of solar-lunar energies to achieve balance in your own life. Working in alignment with nature’s vibrations boosts your spiritual efforts, and this time of reawakening is ripe for clearing and balancing your chakras and energy field. Harness this power of renewal to purge the unnecessary from your energetic closets and vacuum up any emotional residue. It’s time to spring clean your soul!

Clearing your chakras = cleaning debris out of your pipes

Your chakras are invisible (but vital!) energy centers that are designed to move energy between your personal field and the universal field, and, when spinning correctly and unencumbered, these chakras are the means by which you replenish your energy and restore your health. If you’ve been studying energy medicine with me, you know that your body is made from your energy field — and that anything that goes on (or in) your energy field has a direct impact on your body. So, if your chakras are blocked, energy is unable to flow freely in your field; eventually, the clog will result in physical symptoms, which can be anything from headaches to chronic disease.

One way to visualize your energy flow is to think about it in terms of the water pipes in your home (your energy = water / your chakras = pipes). Just like your chakras, if there is a clog somewhere in your home’s pipes, there will be water back-up…which eventually has to go somewhere and will likely cause damage to the pipes and structures around it. Just like that water, your energy has to go somewhere…and keeping your chakras clear and your energy flowing is the best way to keep your body from experiencing injury or illness as a result of clogged pipes.

Clear away old traumas and release built-up emotions

So, how can you keep your chakras clear?

Clogs and blockages in your chakras are caused by traumas that aren’t fully released or emotional build-up (that can be two days, two months, two years, or two decades old). And just as it’s never too late to tackle the often overlooked places in your house (like the chimney or under the couch cushions) that can go years without a thorough clean-up, it’s never too late to clear out old traumas with energy healing. Every bit of work you do toward improving the flow of energy in your field and body is going to make you feel better.

There are activities that will do a general job of clearing negativity from your field, like meditation, but there are also targeted methods for balancing each of your seven main chakras. To find out which of your chakras is dysfunctional, you can work with a spiritual teacher or energy healer, or have a friend check your chakras with a pendulum.

Energy healing methods to clear and balance your chakras for the spring equinox:

Together, your chakras govern all areas of your life: relationships, weight loss, stress, career, self-esteem, love, spiritual progress, and everything else. When they are in balance, you are in balance, and your whole being is lighter, freer, healthier, and happier. So take advantage of the days getting longer and the blossoming of nature this spring, and rejuvenate your soul with the clearing, charging, and balancing of your chakras.

Your first chakra is all about security and feeling safe in your environment. To ground yourself and strengthen your connection to Mother Earth, try walking barefoot in freshly grown grass or on a sandy beach.

Your second chakra governs how you experience pleasure, and a common issue for this chakra is shame. Water has cleansing and healing properties, so immerse yourself in water for 20 minutes — in the ocean or a clearing bath with sea salt and baking soda.

The third chakra is where your will and self-esteem resides, and physical movement, especially outside in the early morning sun or in the evening before sunset, really recharges this chakra.

Your fourth chakra is the heart chakra, and when it’s open, you can give and receive love easily and in a healthy way. Practicing love with a pet who loves unconditionally is a great way to heal your heart and become open to trusting love again.

The fifth chakra is about speaking your truth, choosing to express the real you. Journaling with total honesty can clear and charge this chakra—and help process old traumas. Journaling is a major part of energy medicine and is incredibly freeing!

Your sixth chakra, the “third eye,” is where your higher intellect and clarity of vision reside. Daily meditation—another essential part of energy healing—helps to awaken this chakra so you can increase your intuition and inner wisdom.

An open seventh chakra can be attained through meditation and prayer since the crown chakra is what connects you to spirit. Here you can ask your higher self for guidance.

From Captivity to Liberation: St. Patrick’s Influence and My Own Transformation

In the vibrant tapestry of global celebrations, St. Patrick’s Day stands out with its distinctive emerald hue, echoing the rich history and folklore of Ireland. It’s a day when the world, regardless of ancestry, embraces the Irish spirit.

This time, as I adorn myself in green, paying homage to both the saint and my Irish lineage, I’m compelled to delve deeper into the roots of this day, intertwined with my personal journey of transformation and healing.

“May God, Mary, and Patrick bless you.”

This traditional Irish blessing captures the essence of St. Patrick’s Day, a tribute to the saint who wasn’t born Irish but became an emblem of the nation’s identity.

My connection to this celebration is twofold: honoring St. Patrick, guided by his inner visions, and acknowledging my own battles, including overcoming alcohol addiction—a shadow that contrasts sharply with the day’s festivities.

St. Patrick’s tale begins in the late fourth century in Britain, where he was born into affluence. His life took a dramatic turn at sixteen when he was captured by Irish raiders.

This period of captivity in a land then unfamiliar to him sparked a profound spiritual awakening. His writings recount visions that led to his escape and eventual return to Ireland as a missionary, a story of resilience and faith that resonates with my own path towards healing.

Contrary to popular belief, St. Patrick’s mission in Ireland wasn’t about expelling snakes—a metaphor for indigenous practices of the time—but about spreading Christianity.

His legacy is a testament to the power of transformation, a theme that deeply influences my work in energy medicine and personal growth.

St. Patrick’s Day, marked on March 17th, commemorates his passing but is celebrated with much more than a nod to Irish history. It’s a day when prohibitions are lifted during Lent, allowing for feasting, dancing, and, historically, a lot of drinking.

This last aspect hits close to home, as alcohol once played a significant role in my life, a facet of my Irish heritage that I’ve since learned to view through a lens of awareness and self-care.

Reflecting on my own journey, I recognize the fine line between celebration and excess. My battle with cancer in my twenties was a wake-up call, highlighting the destructive path I was on due to alcohol.

Addiction is a struggle many face, and in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day—a day of transformation—I share signs of alcoholism, hoping to offer guidance to those who might see themselves in my story.

  • Worry from loved ones about your drinking habits.
  • Drinking alone is a common practice.
  • Drinking despite promises to stop.
  • Being late to work because of drinking.
  • Feelings of guilt related to drinking.
  • Experiencing headaches or hangovers after drinking.
  • Morning drinking to ease hangover symptoms.
  • Irritation at comments about your drinking.
  • Thoughts of needing to reduce alcohol consumption.
  • Experiencing blackouts.

For those recognizing these patterns, I urge you to seek support, as I did with Alcoholics Anonymous—a decision that transformed my life, allowing me to embrace each day, including St. Patrick’s Day, with clarity and joy.

As we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, let’s remember the deeper meanings behind the revelry—the stories of change, the strength found in faith, and the personal battles fought and won. It’s a day that reflects not only the spirit of Ireland but also the universal capacity for renewal and healing.

In this light, St. Patrick’s Day is more than just a cultural celebration; it’s a reminder of our ability to overcome adversity, much like St. Patrick himself, and to find strength in our convictions and the journey towards healing and transformation.

Perhaps this St. Patrick’s day will be the day you decide to take the first step on your own personal healing journey.

One step we might recommend is an introduction to energy healing via our bestselling LifeForce Energy Healing Level I course, which you can access by clicking here. Through this course, you can learn a number of techniques to begin to overcome the traumas that may be holding you back and start stepping into your true self.

But whether or not this is the right step for you at this time, we wish you a St. Patrick’s day full of love, positivity, and movement towards your destiny.

A Holistic Approach To Women’s Wellness

International Women’s Day on March 8, 2024, is when society reminds us to celebrate and honor women and their achievements. I say we do that every day. We honor the special women in our lives who have gone before us and paved the road, fighting for women’s rights, and modeling what empowered womanhood stands for.

On a spiritual level, this means celebrating the Divine Feminine in every woman and learning about how we can access and embody this vital source of energy every day.

In our busy and chaotic world where demands and responsibilities often feel overwhelming, it is critically important to empower women to take great care of their health and well-being.

Women are the nurturers, the caretakers and they can only give to others when their cup is full and running over. For centuries, our health choices as women have been under attack. This war on women continues to rage on today putting your health at risk. It is time for us to make our health a top priority not only on a day when society reminds us to celebrate but every single day!

A holistic approach to women’s wellness includes physical, emotional, and spiritual support. We tend to put our well-being last while we struggle to balance career and family needs. This often goes on for years and even decades.

When a woman’s health is being neglected like that, inevitably there comes a breaking point. Society has coined it “Burnout.” That’s when her system shuts down completely and she becomes unavailable to everyone because, on her list of priorities, she has not put herself anywhere.

If this is you, here are some potent tips about how to fill your cup and take better care of yourself and the other women in your life who are close to reaching their breaking point.

Physical Well-Being: Look After Your Body

  • Make regular health checkups and preventive screenings non-negotiable and encourage the women in your life to do the same.
  • Embrace an active lifestyle. Take up mind-body exercises like yoga, and Pilates, or commit to going on regular walks. This way you are more grounded and feel better physically while improving your emotional well-being.
  • Eat healthy, non-processed foods and drink plenty of water throughout the day. Our body is 80% water, so keep it that way by staying properly hydrated.
  • Avoid unhealthy habits – say no to smoking, alcohol, drugs, and other self-destructive behaviors.

Emotional Well-Being: Look After Your Emotion

  • Incorporate meditation into your daily routine to cultivate inner peace and self-awareness. Once a day even if it’s just for twenty minutes. You will notice an enormous difference. And if you don’t know how to meditate, or would like to learn a simple yet amazing meditation technique, please check out my Vedic Meditation available here.
  • Prioritize getting plenty of quality sleep to manage your stress level effectively. By the way, if you are falling asleep during meditation, you are not getting enough sleep. Your mind and body need rest to recuperate before you start conquering your day and tackling your busy to-do list. So, take care of yourself and make sure you are getting enough restful sleep.
  • Avoid stress by setting effective boundaries. Learn to say ‘No’ to prevent overwhelm. Hint: NO is a complete sentence. It does not require an explanation.
  • Bring joy back into your life. Start engaging in activities that fill your heart with joy and happiness. That could be a hobby or people you love to spend time with because they make you feel happy. Make this commitment to yourself and be sure to follow through on it. Having joy in your life is vitally important to your emotional health.

Spiritual Well-Being: Look After Your Higher Self and Connect to Your Source

  • Reconnect with your Higher Self by grounding in Mother Nature. Take walks on the beach, or in the park, embrace forest-bathing, hiking, or swimming in the ocean; those are all wonderful places to be in tune with the Divine and Mother Nature.
  • Sleep under the stars, under a canopy of trees, or underneath the billowy clouds to fill yourself up with a big dose of nature. Let Mother Gaia hold you gently in her soothing arms while feeling deeply connected to Source.
  • Journal about your thoughts and emotions. The act of writing is one of the most powerful and uplifting tools to discover your inner truth. It’s your opportunity to be 100% honest with yourself and get to know yourself better. When you are more honest with yourself, you can be more honest with others. This creates deeper, more meaningful relationships and draws you closer to Source.

Make your wellness a habit today and every day. A wonderful way to take care of yourself is to retreat from the world and go within to experience deep transformation and healing. This Spring, I am hosting a powerful spiritual retreat in the desert where we do just that: connect, heal, and transform. You can learn more about it here.

3 Simple Ways to Activate Your Healing Powers

One of the greatest miracles of the human experience is our innate ability to heal. Whether it’s healing a physical injury or healing from heartbreak, throughout your life’s journey at some point, you’ve experienced a healing – the incredible power that restores, renews, and makes whole again. Think about how your body, mind, and spirit have healed in your life. Have you ever wondered if you could heal others in the same way? Are you called to awaken the healer within?

Trust that everything in your life is part of your Divine plan and serves your higher purpose. Revisiting your story, all the obstacles, traumas, failures, and successes of your life are a necessary foundation for your personal growth and development as a healer.

Take a moment now and ask yourself what are the events in your life that may have prepared you to heal yourself and possibly others.

So what is a healer, you might ask. A healer taps into their expanded consciousness and channels healing energy to help others resolve their physical, spiritual, mental, or emotional ailments.

Since ancient times, healers and shamans worked closely with the spirit world to benefit their communities. They healed physical and mental diseases, facilitated greater interpersonal harmony, and connected humans closer to nature.

They also were the messengers between the human and the spirit worlds. Today’s energy healers provide the same value. They are innately gifted individuals and it’s usually a profound life event that awakens their desire to study energy medicine. Many seek in-depth training through coursework so they can help friends and loved ones and those who are in need of healing from emotional and physical pain.

Does healing align with your life purpose? You know that you’re on the right track, living your life on purpose when you are passionately following whatever you feel you were born to do in this lifetime.

Are you a thoughtful, sensitive, and compassionate soul who loves spending time in nature, meditation, or prayer? Have you been working through traumatic past experiences? You might already have what it takes to be a healer. The power is within you. All it needs is an awakening, loving care, and practice.

Ready to discover if you already are a healer? Here are 3 simple ways to activate and awaken your inner healer.

  1. Expand Your Consciousness
    Have you ever felt that you are more than just your mind and body, that you are connected to the vastness of the universe, connected to your Divine Source? You might have felt like that while in nature, watching the sunrise in the morning while taking a beach walk or hiking in the mountains. Nature can ease us into an expanded state of consciousness.

    Maybe you felt it practicing yoga, praying, listening to music, or being deeply connected with another person. The fastest path to a heightened state of consciousness is meditation.

It is the state from which you receive guidance and direction for your life, where your energy field is recharged, and where you get the information and instructions for healing.

When you access higher consciousness, you connect to your Higher Self and the infinite field of all possibilities. All the knowledge and healing power that ever was or ever will be is present in this quantum energy field.

The moment when you can access this unified field intentionally, you gain the ability to discover the secrets and mysteries of the universe – past, present, and future. And this information can be the basis of you healing others and helping them transform their lives. This is the very foundation of energy healing.

  1. Take A Look At Your Beliefs
    Begin a daily journaling practice and examine your beliefs and values. You’ll get to know yourself and expand your awareness. Why is it so important to gain clarity on your belief? They might unconsciously be holding you back from reaching your full potential – especially any beliefs that stem from fear-based thinking. Fear stops us in our tracks as opposed to expanding and moving forward. Over 90 % of our beliefs are rooted in our childhood. We accepted them at face value from our parents, caretakers, teachers, and society. Beliefs shape how we see the world and act in it. Therefore they run our lives pretty much on autopilot.

Your subconscious beliefs may hold you back from becoming the best version of yourself that you can be. It is almost impossible to expand, grow, and make new choices when your internal operating system is confined to limiting preexisting ideas.

Part of the work that you do in life is to break free from this conditioning, open yourself up to new possibilities, and express yourself as who you truly are. When you are living as the most authentic expression of yourself, you can be a clear channel for others.

  1. Spread the Love, Extend Your Light
    It’s important to balance your inner work (meditation, prayer, and journaling) with your actions showing kindness and being of service to others.

    For healing to take place your inner and outer world must be in harmony.

    Real connection is one of the most powerful forces of healing. And every day you have countless opportunities to demonstrate kindness, compassion, and love with the people you meet.

Smile at the overworked cashier at the checkout lane, be patient when you stand in line waiting your turn at the bank, be kind, and allow that car on the freeway to merge.

Simple acts of kindness go a long way. When you are being of service you put energetic credit into the universal bank and in return, you receive more of the expanded energy from the higher realms.

When you become more loving in your everyday interactions, you heal yourself and others. Spread your light wherever you are called to service.

“There is a force in the universe, which, if we permit it, will flow through us and produce miraculous results.”
–Mahatma Gandhi

We have an innate power to heal that is very real. This has been common knowledge in many cultures over millennia.

Energy Healing is an exciting field of study allowing you to expand your consciousness, tap into the powerful life force, and be of the highest service to others.

An energy healer shows us that we are powerful beyond what the eyes observe, fully able to create the life we desire to live.

5 Compelling Reasons to Embrace Energy Medicine

Do you want to enhance your vitality and bring more balance into your life?
Could energy medicine hold the key to your well-being?

But, first, what exactly is energy medicine? It’s a dynamic approach to healthcare where energy is the primary healing force. Energy, boundless and universal, permeates everything, including you, me, and the vibrant roses in your garden. Within this expansive energy field, everybody possesses their own unique energy systems—a personal energy field within the larger unified field. Blocked or distorted chi in your energetic pathways and energy centers (your chakras, focal points of energy within the field) is the reason why you may not enjoy radiant health, mental clarity, emotional balance, or inner peace.

Here are five compelling reasons why embracing energy medicine could be important for you:

  1. Energy Medicine Addresses the Root Cause
    While conventional medicine tackles symptoms and illnesses through surgery and pharmaceuticals, energy medicine gets to the bottom of why you got sick in the first place and works to clear the root cause of your ailment.  Your physical well-being reflects the state of your energy field. For instance, unprocessed emotions like anger and grief over a divorce or a betrayal from your ex,  affects your heart chakra and might manifest as heart disease or breast cancer later on. Energy medicine aids in identifying and releasing buried emotions safely. It also complements conventional treatments like radiation and chemotherapy  for more effective outcomes and minimizes difficult side effects.
  1. Energy Medicine is an Emotional Clearing House
    Energy medicine serves as an emotional clearing house, allowing you to identify and safely release emotional traumas that disrupt your energy flow. A trained energy healer can spot issues in your energy field before they manifest physically and can help you break up or dissolve any blockages.

    Practices like journaling can further assist you discover painful emotions that are buried deep inside of you and help process them. Think of journaling as a modern-day shamanic technique to transform yourself and your emotions.

  1. Energy Medicine is Great Preventative Medicine
    If you are finding yourself in good health, energy medicine can help you stay healthy and prevent future illnesses. Along with its power to release any energetic blockages in your energy system, it also ensures that your energy functions optimally, safeguarding your physical, emotional, and spiritual balance.
  1. Energy Medicine Facilitates Self-Healing
    Built on the body’s ability to heal itself, energy medicine releases toxic energy from past wounds in your system, clearing the way for your energy to flow smoothly and gives your body the ability to self-correct.
  1. Energy Medicine Connects You to Source
    Energy medicine intertwines with your spiritual and physical health and happiness and your emotional balance. It harmonizes all parts of you, including your spiritual well-being, which is critically important. When you are so deeply connected to your Source (God, Spirit, The Divine, whatever word resonates the most with you), you will hear your intuition guiding you and you’ll know your inner truth. Also, your body will tell you what you need to be in optimal health, and you will be able to live in a state of clarity, compassion, and authentic happiness.

Self-Love is the New Love

As the romance industry gears up for the annual celebration of love on Valentine’s Day, a familiar wave of emotion may wash over you. Are you yearning for someone to send you flowers and chocolates, to express an undying love for the wonderful person you are, and not getting anything like that?

Maybe you are dreading seeing your colleagues receive flowers at the office from their one and only or are even secretly thinking about sending flowers to yourself to keep up appearances while that Miley Cyrus song plays on repeat in your mind.

Are you definitely staying as far away as you can from social media for the next couple of days, and watching someone’s romantic highlight reel makes you think that you could never experience that. Because deep down inside you think of yourself as unloveable and unworthy.

Society has a way of imposing standards that tie our individual worth to external factors like youth, beauty, wealth, power, romantic relationships, and status. If your self-worth is entangled in these external markers, a persistent feeling of inadequacy, the perpetual “I’m not good enough,” may run rampant in your mind.

This mindset can lead to constant comparisons and feelings of jealousy because you think the grass is greener on the other side.

Did you grow up in an environment where your siblings upstaged you, or your parents belittled your actions and dreams? Were you teased or bullied at school, creating a belief that you were somehow unlovable and alone? These early experiences can disturb your adult life, negatively affecting your personal and professional relationships.

Maybe now is the time to get emotionally honest with yourself and stop trying to numb your feelings through binge-eating, excessive drinking, or going on yet another expensive shopping spree.

Avoiding discomfort, sadness, and pain only perpetuates the cycle of self-deprecation. It’s time to understand what loving yourself really means.

Self-love isn’t a narcissistic focus solely on yourself without considering the feelings of others, or being on an eternal high where negative emotions are gone. Instead, it involves doing away with the incessant self-criticism and ending the harsh self-judgment about your appearance, identity, and life choices.

Loving yourself may entail making bold decisions—ending an abusive relationship, confronting those who have hurt you, seeking a job that validates your talents, or starting a recovery program for substance abuse. It involves acknowledging and feeling your pain, recognizing that healing often begins by addressing the wounds from your childhood.

Believing negative self-perceptions may seem easier than appreciating your worth because that is how you’ve been wired all your life.

Here is the good news: Changing your beliefs and consequently your self-perception creates a positive impact in your life.

Trusting your intuition and gut instincts is critical in this transformation. If you’re going to love yourself, it really helps to believe in yourself—to that intuitive inner voice that you may have been overriding all these years. Your Higher Self is a conduit of pure unconditional love, accessible to you at all times through meditation, prayer, nature, or any other method that works for you.

Tap into it and you will know that you are loved beyond measure by the Divine, the Source that created you; this pure unconditional love is available to you at all times. This way you’ll be able to forgive yourself for any perceived shortcomings – after all, do you know anybody who is perfect? And you’ll be able to love yourself and others.

We attract into our life what we are in vibrational harmony with. So imagine feeling good about yourself, loving yourself, doing kind things for yourself, and projecting that energy out into the world.

It won’t matter how you spend Valentine’s Day. It won’t matter if you bought yourself flowers because they are for a very special person – you.

NORTH, EAST, WEST, OR SOUTH:

DOES THE DIRECTION IN WHICH YOUR HEAD POINTS WHEN
YOU’RE ASLEEP DETERMINE THE QUALITY OF YOUR SLEEP?

According to vastu shastra, the traditional Hindu science of architecture,
the answer is YES!

You have probably heard of feng shui, the ancient Chinese art of arranging buildings, objects, and space to achieve harmony and balance within a specific environment. Feng shui means “the way of wind and water.”). But you may not be familiar with vastu shastra, feng shui’s architectural counterpart.

If you’ve experienced sleepless nights for days, weeks, or months on end, you don’t have to be reminded how crucial sound, restful sleep is when it comes to your daily functioning, mindset, and energy levels. Restful sleep helps heal your body, refresh your spirit, and give you the get-up-and-go you need to tackle your duties and your delights.

Ayurveda is the form of alternative medicine (and the traditional system of medicine of India) that seeks to treat and integrate body, mind, and spirit using a wide-ranging holistic approach that emphasizes eating with the seasons, exercise, herbal remedies, and meditation to establish and preserve robust health. It emphasizes three pillars of health: diet, sleep, and energy management. All three are crucial, irreducible aspects of wellness. Unless all three are addressed simultaneously at all times, disharmony ensues inside our bodies, paving a path toward malaise and ultimately disease.

If you find yourself unable to achieve a full rejuvenating night’s sleep despite doing all the usual things to decompress and deescalate prior to retiring for the night (turning off your electronics before 8 p.m., journaling, etc.), I suggest you try the sleep positions discussed below to see if any of them can help.

Vastu shastra’s goal is to balance the five natural planetary elements (earth, water, fire, air, and ether) by preserving and placing each element within its proper position and proportion. Whenever this is achieved, your dwelling spaces become harmonious, peaceful, and wellness-centered. And like creates like: your enhanced energy helps your surroundings and other beings in your orbit receive and radiate healing energy.

According to vastu shastra, the direction in which the top of your head points when you’re asleep truly matters!

NORTH

“Only dead people sleep with their heads pointing north.” — Vasant Lad

The Vedas teach that North is the route your soul will take when it exits your body at the end of your corporeal lifetime. So, only those interested in occasional lucid dreaming or astral travel should sleep with their head pointing in that direction.

In all other cases, it’s not a good idea because of the planet’s magnetic field. Because we, too, respond physically to magnetic poles — with our internal positive charge facing north and our negative charge facing south — those who try to sleep against this natural polarity are similar to two positive magnets being forced into face-to-face contact. Good luck with that! Those who sleep with their heads facing north regularly can expect to wake up feeling exhausted night after night, with no end in sight.

And because it is magnetic polarities that affect the circulation of your blood, sleeping with the top of your head facing north can cause stress, illness, and thought disturbances, none of which help you attain a restful night’s sleep. The result: potentially unhelpful emotional instability, frustration, lack or diminution of willpower, misery, and physical problems.

In a single sound bite, sleeping with the top of your head facing north withdraws energy from your body.

EAST

Academic students, listen up! Sleeping with the top of your head facing east is an excellent strategy. Doing so will boost your ability to retain what you’re learning, increase your ability to concentrate, and promote meditation-like sleep.

East is also the perfect direction for educators, scholars, and job and promotion-seekers. Sleeping in this position can help you feel more powerful, masterful, and energetic.

East is also ideal for anyone who is striving to overcome health challenges.

WEST

Sleeping with the top of your head facing west can be problematic for anyone who is experiencing sleep deficits. Although west is okay (not ideal, but okay), if you’re success-driven and striving for some form of world renown or domination in your field, the head-facing-west position won’t necessarily serve you as a reliable sleep-inducer. Although some sleep experts suggest that west is a neutral sleeping position, others claim it’s hard to get excellent rejuvenating rest because of the occurrence of frequent, unsettling action/adventure type dreams. (Type A’s are especially prone to sleeping fitfully, so East and South are ideal for them.)

Bottom line: Sleeping with the top of your head facing west or north opposes your goal to maximize the amount of rest and recuperation you want to achieve.

SOUTH

Ding ding ding ding ding! When it comes to achieving restful, rejuvenating sleep, south is the hands down, gold-plated winner.

If you want to sleep like the proverbial dead and wake up ready to embrace and enhance your life, turn your bed so its head faces south.

Recall the above magnetic pole information. Sleeping with your head facing south and your feet facing north draws energy into your body. Not only will your sleep be happy and contented, your health, happiness, and prosperity are likely to increase. Sleeping with head south means you’ll absorb the energy required to tackle what needs doing to advance you to the next level in your journey toward your life goals.

Are you neurodivergent?

Would you like to discover how “normal” your brain is or are you neurodivergent?

But before we get going here, let’s define a couple of terms.

Because there is no fixed definition of “normal,” researchers and educators have produced terms to help identify the different assets and challenges that human brains can include. The term “neurodiversity” describes a model for understanding how our brains function and takes the position that diversity is normal, that some brains just work differently.

Neurotypical is the term used to describe people whose brain function and development fall within the “typical” (most often seen and recognized) range.


Neurodivergent (ND for short) is the term used to describe people whose brain function differs in identifiable ways from the typical range. Those of us who identify as neurodivergent may recognize one of the conditions listed below. But since there aren’t any medical criteria or definitions of what it means to be neurodivergent, other conditions can also fall under this term. Here’s a list of what’s typically included:

  • Autism spectrum disorder (including what was once called Asperger’s Syndrome)
  • ADHD (Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder)
  • Down syndrome
  • Dyscalculia (difficulty with math)
  • Dysgraphia (difficulty writing)
  • Dyslexia (difficulty reading)
  • Dyspraxia (difficulty with coordination)
  • Intellectual disabilities
  • Mental health conditions (bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, etc)
  • Prader-Willi syndrome (a rare genetic condition that affects metabolism. PWS causes individuals to have a robust, insatiable appetite so they never feel full after eating)
  • Sensory processing disorders
  • Social anxiety (a specific type of anxiety disorder)
  • Tourette syndrome (identifiable as the result of uncontrollable movements and vocal sounds called tics. TS shows up in early childhood and improves in adulthood)
  • Williams syndrome (a rare genetic condition characterized by unique physical features, delays in cognitive development, and potential cardiovascular problems)

ND isn’t a disorder or a defect. ND folks aren’t broken and don’t need “fixing.” Their brains simply work differently, quite frequently in ways that enrich all those within their orbit.

ND folks are incredibly diverse. No two ND individuals, even identical twins, have the same experiences or requirements to be able to live successful, fulfilling lives.

Although some ND people have medical disorders, learning disabilities, and other conditions, vast numbers of ND people do not, and may also boast superior memories, the ability to mentally envision 3D objects easily, the ability to solve complex mathematical calculations in their heads, and other similar gifts.

ND folks may also have difficulty making eye contact or reading body cues, sometimes stuttering is an issue, may have trouble focusing and have issues with self-control and remaining flexible in changing circumstances. They may also have trouble with certain stimuli (light, sound, heat, cold, travel, etc.)

An example of ND versus a typical human brain in everyday life would be comparing the following two people with a talent for playing the violin:

  • Person #1: A pre-teen with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) who really struggles in social situations. His main ASD identifiers are social problems coupled with an unusually intense interest in playing the violin; it’s all he wants to do all day. Plus, his teachers say he is naturally better at the violin; taking classes and accumulating experience isn’t as crucial in further developing this extraordinary skill as it would be for a normal kid.
  • Person #2: A 40-year-old neurotypical adult; he is comfortable in social situations and makes friends easily. The adult consciously developed the creative skill of playing the violin throughout his life; his talent developed from much education, training, and practice, and took many years to develop.

    No one would say that the adult described above is abnormal because he (still) can’t play the violin as well as the pre-teen kid. At the same time, we don’t need to describe the child as anything other than “different,” or “neurodivergent,” since it’s natural for both the adult and the child to develop differently as they deal with their own unique abilities and struggles.

A great many ND people struggle in social situations, which makes it hard to find work because they tend to not have a stellar experience during the job interview. However, if they pass the screening and get the job, their attention to detail keeps them engaged in tasks that neurotypical folks might find tedious (record-keeping, accounting, data analysis, script-writing, coding, drawing, audio editing, etc.).

Some ND struggle simply because some systems and processes don’t give them the chance to highlight their strengths or don’t offer novel, ongoing challenges for them.

Also, some ND people can become overwhelmed in noisy environments or in chaotic, communal situations like open-office designs, emergency rooms, newsrooms, restaurants, backstage at rock concerts, and heavy construction sites. A pair of noise-canceling earpods (when safe) can help them sidestep the distractions so they can focus exclusively on their daily tasks.

Astonishing data point:

An estimated 15-20 percent of the world’s population exhibits some form of neurodivergence.

Are you “on the spectrum”?

The biggest category of NDs is found “on the spectrum;” this refers to the wide range of characteristics and abilities found in individuals with autism.

An example:

  • Unique strengths: Your vivid imagination and attention to detail make you an incredible artist. You create beautiful drawings that capture your imaginative world. You seem to have been born with this skill, so learning how to draw was never an issue for you. You’ve seemingly always known how to draw. (Savant: a person with an exceptional natural aptitude in a particular field, like music or mathematics or art, despite being impaired in other areas of intellectual or social functioning.)
  • Social challenges: You sometimes struggle to understand others’ emotions or to make friends easily.
  • Repetitive behavior: You have an obsessive interest in animals, and you love to learn about unusual species. You can spend all day reading books and watching educational videos about animals and then spend your evenings drawing them.

Every individual on the spectrum has their own set of strengths and challenges, which can vary greatly.

Difficulties with social interactions (understanding emotions or making friends) are common for individuals on the autism spectrum.

Many individuals on the spectrum exhibit repetitive behaviors or intense, even obsessive, interest in specific topics.

Although some ND characteristics (e.g., difficulty with organization, sensory issues) present challenges in traditional work or educational settings, countless ND individuals possess unique strengths that can improve productivity, quality, innovation, and engagement.

By Now You’re Probably Wondering…

If you’ve never thought about neurodivergence in these ways, you may be wondering if your brain is “typical” or if you’re perhaps an undiagnosed member of the ND tribe.

There are probably millions in the ND tribe who have gone unidentified because their unique internal/unspoken challenges haven’t been recognized or identified by their parents, teachers, partners, counselors, or peers.

Or, you may have discovered that someone you know and love may well exist in the ND world, which heretofore has seemed “off limits” or confounding to you.

Either way, here are some things you can do to embrace the ND individuals in your orbit, including yourself, if the above characterizes your lived experience and mindset:

Embrace neurodiversity. Recognize the unique perspectives and talents. Encourage/understand/accept yourself or your loved one as a unique individual.

Discern your/their specific needs so everyone gets the support required.

If you’re a ND type, develop ways to help yourself communicate effectively so you can advocate for yourself as the need arises.

Continue to explore and develop your unique passions so they can help you succeed in the ways you were designed to succeed.

Don’t be afraid to approach neurodivergent individuals in the same way you would neurotypical folks: with an open mind, empathy, and understanding. Ask questions. Get to know them. They will frequently surprise and delight you!

If you’re an employer or a mentor to ND individuals, proactively offer remote work flexibility, Zoom connectivity, noise-canceling earpods, and other options (examples: alternative lighting, full-spectrum, or natural lighting products; written forms, prompts, and instructions; recorded directives, messages, and materials, etc.) that will help them produce with the least amount of personal anguish. (ND conditions are covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act, so reasonable accommodations are to be provided.)

Finally, many who are ND are accomplished and successful. More and more ND people are coming forward and self-identifying, including climate activist Greta Thunberg, oscar-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins, musician Florence Welch, scientist Temple Grandin, and Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles.

Experts would also suggest that Nobel Prize-winning chemist Marie Curie and theoretical physicist Albert Einstein, artist Vincent Van Gogh, inventor Nikola Tesla, and author F. Scott Fitzgerald, would today likely identify as ND.

Finally, the Harvard Business Review published an article a few years ago that detailed the benefits of hiring those who are neurodivergent, stating it had been found it was a competitive advantage across many industries.

Revitalize your day: crazy busy and on overwhelm?

In these insane times, it’s easy to feel like you’re on the verge of tripping and falling flat on your face. That report for work is long overdue, but you had to take time off to plan for your dad’s care. Your teenage daughter is falling behind in school while your youngest has yet another appointment for new braces. And to top it all off, your ex is late again with the child support.

Your clothes no longer fit since you’ve been binging on ice cream and cookies (not to mention the wine) to calm yourself down. So why oh why do you have to volunteer to head the church picnic this year…?

Crazy busy and there it is again, that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach when you see your mile-long to-do-list. There is no way that you can get it all done and please everybody.

And where on that list does it say to make time for yourself? Who are you kidding? What does that even mean? Then you remember that old Simon and Garfunkel song: “Slow down, you move too fast.” But that didn’t really come with instructions of HOW can you do that…

Learn to meditate, that’s how!

And for that you don’t need to escape to a cave like a yogi. In fact, all it takes is a few minutes in your bedroom at the start of each day to make a significant impact. Despite my crazy schedule, I haven’t missed a single day of meditation in over 40 years!

Here are five tips to seamlessly incorporate meditation into your daily routine:

Start Your Day Right:

Make meditation the very first thing you do in the morning. Before checking emails, scrolling through your phone, or attending to the needs of others, dedicate just 20 minutes to meditation. You’ll find yourself in a calmer and more spacious mindset, setting the tone for a smooth day ahead.

Afternoon Recharge:

If you’re feeling frazzled in the late afternoon, gift yourself another 10-20 minute meditation break. Get creative—whether closing the office door or appearing to be peacefully napping on public transportation, create a space for tranquility. Remember, protect your meditative state from disturbances to ensure a seamless experience.

Create a Disturbance-Free Zone:

Safeguard your meditation space from disruptions. Equip yourself with noise-canceling earpods to drown out nearby talk, and consider putting up a “do not disturb” sign to ward off unexpected interruptions.

Embrace the Nod-Off Moments:

If you happen to nod off during meditation, celebrate it! Consider it a pat on the back, acknowledging that your body needed a brief moment of rest. It counts as meditation in those circumstances. However, if drowsiness becomes a regular occurrence, perhaps it’s a sign to adjust your bedtime routine.

Guidance Matters:

I firmly believe that the most effective form of meditation, one that reduces stress and elevates consciousness, is best learned from an instructor rather than a book, and involves a mantra selected just for you. I do just that in my teaching video which is a free bonus to the course I’m currently teaching, Master the Secrets of the SutrasCome join me and all the others who, like you, are looking for serenity now!

Unleashing Your Inner Power: Transforming Challenges into Triumphs

Are you feeling overwhelmed by the chaos and negativity in the world? The constant barrage of distressing news, political turmoil, and personal challenges might have you questioning if everything has taken a nosedive. Instead of succumbing to the negativity, consider taking a proactive step towards a more fulfilling life. If you find yourself stuck in a cycle of despair, it’s time to dig deeper within yourself to discover the untapped potential for healing and transformation.

I vividly recall facing a daunting diagnosis of cancer back in my 20’s, a situation that seemed insurmountable at the time. The prospect of invasive surgery loomed, threatening to disrupt not only my health but also my career and active lifestyle. As a young adult accustomed to life in the fast lane, the thought of slowing down for introspection was far from my mind. However, a pivotal moment at a bus stop, where an advertisement about meditation caught my eye, marked the beginning of a profound journey.

In that moment, fear and hopelessness gave way to an unwavering determination to seize control of my life and manifest a brighter future. Little did I know that the path to healing lay in ancient and modern methods designed to release the emotional burdens associated with trauma.

Acknowledging our true emotions is a crucial first step in the healing process. I started by honestly documenting my feelings, discovering layers of jealousy and anger that I had been suppressing. Journaling became a cathartic release, allowing me to shed the weight of years of abuse and speak my truth. The process, though challenging, was transformative, paving the way for emotional processing that was essential for both my mind and body.

Meditation emerged as a newfound ally, offering solace and peace in the midst of life’s chaos. Committing to a daily meditation practice became a cornerstone of my healing journey, unlocking a multitude of benefits that extended beyond my expectations., Once there, I was introduced to the transformative power of the sutras.

The Sutras, ancient aphorisms originating from the Vedas, became a secret weapon in my healing arsenal. Learning and practicing these short sayings led to the quieting of the internal screams—the echoes of childhood trauma—that had haunted me for years. As I delved into the world of sutras, I found a sense of completeness and profound healing. Remarkably, around the same time, my cancer went into remission, leaving medical professionals shaking their heads, and offering the typical refrain – “whatever you’re doing, just keep doing it.”

You, too, can embark on a journey to heal emotional wounds and address their physical manifestations. By turning your attention inward and actively listening to your needs, a transformative path will unfold. With diligence and intention, you can become the highest version of yourself, living in alignment with your true destiny.

If you’re ready to reclaim your power, rediscover your voice, and stand up for what you believe in, it’s time to explore new avenues, take risks, and embrace the most potent force in the universe: love.

If that’s appealing, come join me in my best-selling course, Master the Secrets of the Sutras. Drawing on now 50 years of practicing the art of energy healing, I share invaluable teachings to guide you on your journey towards healing and empowerment. It’s time to refresh your perspective, transcend the challenges, and embrace a life filled with purpose and love.

Unveiling the Sacred Mysteries of the Vedas

The Veda was the most precious gift for which the West had ever been indebted to the East.
~Voltaire

In the 17th century, the sacred teachings of ancient India reached the West, opening a new path of wisdom for those ready to embrace it. As French philosopher Voltaire acknowledged, the Vedas became the West’s most precious gift from the East.

Translated by European scholars from Sanskrit, the language of the ancient Hindu scriptures, the Vedas stand as the world’s oldest literature. Comprising hymns, poems, and writings, these sacred texts were orally transmitted for generations before being recorded between 1500 to 1000 BCE, predating even the story of Moses.

The term ‘Veda’ in Sanskrit translates as knowledge or revelation, with authorship believed to be divinely inspired, akin to the Bible. The sages who recorded the Vedas lived and embodied the teachings, using the wisdom to connect with the Divine, the created world, and fellow beings.

Among those captivated by this ancient wisdom was American Transcendental philosopher Henry David Thoreau, who marveled at its power and beauty. Thoreau expressed, “Whenever I have read any part of the Vedas, I have felt that some unearthly and unknown light illuminated me.”

Thoreau’s sentiment captures the transformative experience the Vedas offer, containing universal truths that facilitate a profound connection to the Divine through study and practice.

Fast-forward through the centuries, and the wisdom tradition of ancient India remains relevant, offering keys to inner work that can bring about life-changing transformations.

If you’re ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery and spiritual growth, the Vedas hold the key to unlocking your highest potential. Whether you seek healing, personal development, purpose finding, or a deeper connection to peace and abundance, this ancient wisdom tradition can guide you.

Discover the power within you, as the Vedas impart:

  1. The power to face your fear: Move beyond limitations, exercise self-love, and contribute positively to the world.
  2. The courage to open your heart: Awaken your heart-felt connection to Source, freeing yourself to accept, forgive, extend, and embrace your purpose.
  3. The presence to live in the moment: Cultivate present-moment awareness and awakened intention to unleash the Divine creative power within.
  4. The faith to accept your life purpose: Embrace your strength and creativity, focusing on what lies ahead with divinely-inspired energy.
  5. The love to feel connected: Rediscover the joy of possibility through an unbreakable connection with the Divine.

The Vedas, with their collection of transformational Sutras, form the basis of my brand-new course “Master the Secrets of the Sutras.” This course teaches the skill of connecting to Ascended Masters and Spiritual Guides beyond this realm as well as delivers the most secret of the secrets, never before revealed.

Embarking on a New Beginning:
Navigating the Seas of Change with Archangel Michael’s Blessing

“I saw the angel in the marble and carved it until I set him free.” ~Michelangelo

Just as the great master found inspiration in freeing the angel within the stone, we, too, can draw strength and guidance from celestial beings. Imagine having a powerful ally in Archangel Michael, poised to provide divine guidance as you set sail for the new year and embark on a transformative journey.

Archangel Michael, whose name means “he who is like God,” is a formidable force of protection, guidance, and strength. In moments of uncertainty, he stands ready to shield us from negative energy and infuse our being with the energy of unconditional love. Whether you are a healer, teacher, or simply seeking a source of strength, Archangel Michael is a steadfast companion on your spiritual voyage.

To connect with him, visualize his vibrant blue energy enveloping you as you meditate on your path. Seek his protection and draw upon his unwavering strength to navigate the challenges that lie ahead. In times of darkness, call upon him to channel divine love and healing to illuminate the path for yourself and those around you.

Choosing Your Divine Companion: Archangel Michael for Strength and Protection.

Just as Michelangelo chose the perfect strokes to unveil the angel within the marble, we can invoke Archangel Michael.
In your healing and teaching work, call upon him to surround you and protect you from any negative energy or darkness. To counteract the darkness, ask him to channel divine love and healing to everyone around you. Connect with him when you need a little extra strength, faith, and determination to continue your work.

In the spirit of embracing new beginnings, I invite you to a powerful guided meditation where I connect you to Archangel Michael to seek his blessing and let him guide you toward higher consciousness as we begin a brand-new cycle at the start of this new year.

Join me tomorrow, Wednesday, January 3rd at 1:00pm EST for a powerful guided meditation to embrace the new year with clarity and purpose under the wing of Michael’s blessings.

Are You a Modern Master? Explore the Spiritual Science of Ancient India

Ever wondered what it takes to truly master something? Let’s not just talk about honing a skill or learning a new hobby. We’re talking about the big stuff, like conquering your fears, developing a robust meditation practice, or refining your unique healing abilities to reach new heights of accomplishment.

Mastering these aspects of life means acquiring new knowledge, gaining control of your inner world, and exhibiting great skill in your actions and relationships. As we strive for these qualities, we’re blessed with the advancements in technology, science, medicine, and engineering that bring these goals closer than ever before.

So, now the question arises — What does it take to become a master of your spiritual life?

Seeking Spiritual Wisdom Across Ages

Over centuries, seekers have trekked to spiritual masters in pursuit of wisdom. It’s akin to the classic cartoon of a pilgrim climbing the tallest peaks to consult with the solitary Master about life’s purpose. This pursuit of spiritual wisdom is deeply ingrained in all cultures and times.

The spiritual science of ancient India, venerated in the East and rediscovered by Western icons (the Beatles in India, anyone?) in the 20th century, has witnessed a bloom in interest in yoga, meditation, and musical rituals like kirtan.

During this transformative era, I had the privilege of immersing myself in this ancient tradition in India, amplifying my abilities as a spiritual teacher and energy healer. It was an intense journey demanding time, energy, resources, and the right teachers to unravel this precious knowledge and insight.

But the payoff? Absolutely worth it.

Embrace the Spiritual Awakening

Here’s an oft-repeated truth — the frequency and pace of spiritual awakenings happening today are mind-boggling, but exhilarating!

These traits embody the modern master, a path you can tread with the spiritual science of ancient India.

The Path to Modern Mastery: 3 Key Steps

  1. Master Your Mind: Ancient Indian spiritual science reveals the secrets of special secret words and phrases.

Our collective connection to the Source can bring about a profound transformation on Earth.
