What If Your Soul Drove Your Life?

I have a confession. After completing an intensive 40 day meditation plan, I realized my soul--which I believe is God individualized--wasn't completely driving my life. My soul had one foot in the driver's side and my ego was straddling the console grabbing and grasping at the wheel. You could imagine how difficult it could be to drive! There was a constant standstill...

We All Have Professional Shortcomings

Many times- sometimes daily- my human wants to give up on my dream and calling of being a spiritual light. I think, "who am I?" and " I FXXXed that up yet again." I'll never forget when I was only a couple of months into starting my spiritually based practice when I sent out my first-ever group email advertising an event. Sadly, there was a processing error. O the things I didn't know and still don't know!

What to Do During a Crisis of Faith

Recently a friend and I shared our crisis of faith stories. Both of us do rigorous, self help work, magick, and energy work on ourselves and our lives. We believe, believe, and believe...

But what many metaphysical practitioners don't tell you, is what to do when you have a crisis of faith. What if you are doing your affirmations, processing, doing rituals, reading cards, connecting with your Higher Self and loving spirit guides, and putting all of this hard work in, but still not seeing the results?

How to Endure the Things We Can Not Change and Find Lasting Peace

Shit happens. Yes, I a self proclaimed new age and positive bandwagon person said it, and it's worth saying again--SHIT happens. 

The world is full of crazy, irrational, unstable, and challenging chaos. Let's get real. Even us powerful beings can't wish it away (at least not yet:) ). We live in a realm of good, bad, light, dark, and every shade in between. How ever can we find our footing? Or stability? 

Buddhism tells us to take the middle path or look at the gray. Positive psychology and metaphysics advise re-framing to a positive paradigm. And, most recently, I've been working with Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT) for some of my clients, and DBT encourages us to have radical acceptance.

Dear Universe,

I wanted to say hello...I figured we don't say "hello" enough...why not?

Why hello beautiful, precious being of mine! I've been waiting for you.

O yeah? Why is that?

Because you and I are one in the same. You are me and I am you. You were birthed from me, and I've been oh so missing you.

You have been missing lonely, old me? Really?

Don't Feed Your Monsters

An amazing supervisor, mentor, and I like to think friend, recently encouraged me to not feed my accomplishment monster.

What she meant by accomplishment monster is that I have an insatiable hunger that wants to perform. The more it's fed, the more it demands!  

While accomplishing can be good and fine--and in many instances required--the accomplishment monster craves for the outcomes and adds extra, unnecessary stress and pressure; thereby, making manageable projects overwhelming and taking much, more effort. It creates a downward spiral.  

Perhaps this obsession with accomplishing originated in elementary school, where I was diagnosed with dyslexia and often felt stupid. Thus, the birth of the accomplishment monster, who insisted, "If I'm not as smart, then I'll try 150% harder and accomplish the world to fit in. If only then, I'll be good enough."
