Spirituality in a Secular World

Very little about spirituality seems appetizing in this secular world.  Besides Evangelicals and the GOP in politics at the moment and their need to push women’s rights back to the Victorian age or prior, missionaries knocking at doors at odd hours, there are the role models who either preach abstinence but live like rock stars or who live an ascetic lifestyle outside of the mainstream disconnected from world in the main. …Details

The Akashics through hypnosis

“Akashic in Sanskrit means “space,” and Indian philosophy uses this term to describe a space representing a universal filing system that records every thought, word, and action in our lifetime. While people in trance may be influenced by a conscious memory of this well-known karmic term, more often than not in hypnosis, …subjects recalling spiritual libraries thing of these records as their life books, diaries, or as representing a kind of celestial television set for their utilization.” -Michael Newton…Details

Healing may not mean well

Western culture medicine seems to look at health as a competition.  The unhealthy aspect of a person is something ‘other’ that is attempting to take over, modify, or destroy the person.  The medical establishment is a competitor that wants to ‘win’ by stopping the ‘other’ in their tracks and restoring the patient to life. …Details

Self Hate

There Is Nothing Wrong With You by Cheri Huber is one of the best books I’ve ever read.  It’s very simple but profound in the most down to earth way.  And I came across it in the most random way.  An internationally known dance instructor was using it in class as a way for dancers to get out of their own way and find the way back into that joy they felt as children when they danced. …Details

Vulnerability is the key to joy

I just discovered Brené Brown and her talks on Ted. She is a researcher who has spent a decade researching Shame and Vulnerability.  Her conclusions and her insights are wonderful and eye-opening and I really appreciate her candor.  She points to vulnerability as the courage to be authentic in the face of judgement and disconnection. …Details
