Bringing It To A Head

One of the effects of any visit to the Akashics is that, most of the time, you will experience what is most relevant to you in that moment in time.  When we experience this in our normal lives we think of it as synchronicity or forces at work that are looking out for us and what we receive or experience is usually acting on us on one or two levels, mental and emotional, emotional and general well being, that kind of thing. …

Unintended Consequences

Something we learn about as we mature is that, even with the best of intentions, some actions have unintended consequences.  Some things affect people in dramatic ways even though that’s what we were trying to avoid or that’s the last thing we would do, etc, etc, etc. …

Explain Yourself

One of the biggest blocks to setting boundaries with people is that we don’t want to get into a discussion about “Why?”  Many times the whole point of the boundary is to limit certain interactions, but setting the boundary provokes the interaction we don’t want to have. …

Emergence

In the spiritual community there is a lot of focus on going within.  Go into your depths to find yourself.  Go into the dark to discover who you are.  Go inwards to find the truth.  And I’m all for it.  My family and friends will tell you I have no fear of going inwards, looking in the depths, getting my hands dirty and digging deep to find the richness of life. …

We are all spiritual beings living an embodied life.  These bodies that we are in are neither a natural form for us to exist in nor a symbolic emanation of our spiritual selves.  They are not a meat suit we are wearing over our true selves nor are they meat cars we are driving around in. …

A New Bottom Line

When we think about setting a new bottom line we think about it in context of having a ‘discussion’ with someone.  We are “drawing a line in the sand”, “taking a stand”, or clarifying our boundaries, perhaps for the first time. …

I’m a Leaf On the Wind

Too much of anything is usually a bad thing and everything can be taken out of context and therefore make a hash of things.  Being overly flexible can be a liability.  It can leave you twisted into shapes you aren’t meant to be in or make you into a doormat for others instead of leading your own life.…

Internal Logic

Sometimes the logical way to do things, the prioritized, makes everything make sense, gets it all done method of life just doesn’t cut it.  Sometimes we just have to do things in our own order, in a way that feels right vs.…

Blame vs. Responsibility

People confuse blame and responsibility all the time.  Blame is what we use when we are emotionally charged about something.  It’s the word that comes to mind when we are angry or hurt or aggrieved over something.  We want something done about the situation.…
