Post 40: Tap into creativity.

In yogic philosophy there is this idea that we are all trying to get back to how we were as kids, joyful and content in life! Most of us might be able to remember those days, some of us might not. It was before “life” happened and all the experiences, good and bad, were laid out for us that unequivocably changed our lives. What I love about having a 6-year old in the house is watching how content she is. She is a busy little bee, always building worlds in minecraft...

Post 39: What parenting reveals to us about God.

Parenting can reveal a lot to us about God. One thing I remember when my little girl was a newborn, was holding her in my arms and wishing that I could keep her safe from all the difficulties life has to offer. I knew I would do anything in my power to protect her but I also knew that she would have to go through life and have her own experiences and I would not be able to protect her from everything. I wished in those moments that I could...

Post 38: Build trust in your higher self through guided meditation.

When its summer time and I find the occasional house fly buzzing at the sunroom windows wanting desperately to reach the other side, I find it incomprehensible when I open the sliding glass door which is feet away, shoe them towards it, and find them miss the open door completely and fly right back to that window, the one thing separating them from their goal. But it made me think. Isn’t this what a lot of us end up doing? We figure out what we want in life or what we want...

Post 36: You are worthy exactly as you are as God created you!

Growing up with a perfectionist Mom, well, makes you a bit of a perfectionist. It has taken many years to let go of a few aggravating behaviors that I picked up, but I have learned a lot in the process. My mother and my older sister are both list-writers so I naturally became one too at an early age. At some point I found myself listing things just so that I could feel the excitement as I checked off another to-do. I mean, do I really need to remind myself to...

Post 35: The importance of expressing our creativity!

I was reading Dr. Christiane Northrup’s excellent book, Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom when I came across this profound passage that will really hit home for all of you creative people, which is EVERY SINGLE PERSON reading this—yes, we are ALL creative beings! Dr. Northrup is talking about a woman having a baby (the epitome of the female creative ability) when she says, “And once the child is born, she must acknowledge that her creation has and always will have a life and personality of its own, even though it was created from...

Post 34: Great ego expectations can lead to stagnation

The Bhagavad Gita says the following: “But even the most praiseworthy acts should be done with complete non attachment and with no concern for results”. When we can let go of our ego expectations of what will come of our actions, 2 things happen: 1. We free ourselves up for actually following our intuition (drawn to do things by Spirit rather than driven to do things by the ego). 2. We let go of the ego emotions (fear and anxiety) which sometimes leads to no action at all (stagnation) or the subsequent ego...

Post 33: Take the first step in spiritual awakening.

“Take the first step in faith, you don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” Martin Luther King, Jr. (www.brainyquote.com 2001) Take a moment to contemplate what this means to you. For me, this means that when we are called to do something in life, we take that first step with complete faith and trust in that intuition, that inner guidance that is urging us forward. Oprah calls them the “whispers” in life that are constantly calling to us and guiding us. When we learn to fully trust...

Post 32: What our anger is trying to tell us.

  Quick to anger like a red-head? Read this post to slow your roll! Dr. Christiane Northrup says in her book Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom: “Anger is energy—our personal jet fuel. It is telling us that something needs adjustment in our lives. It is telling us that there is something we want that we don’t know we want.” She goes on to say, “This emotion is dangerous only if we deny it and stuff it in our bodies. Anger and all other ‘negative’ emotions can serve us well when we don’t turn them...

Post 31: Do not confuse Holy Spirit with elf on a shelf!

Some people assume Holy Spirit is some ghost supernatural thing that may be watching our every move…does elf on a shelf come to mind for anybody?! (Love that little guy! Ours is named Elfy!) But seriously, let’s get it straight. Holy Spirit is another term for OUR higher self. Notice the same initials? Holy Spirit is an aspect of our collective Spirit that remembers this connection, this union, with each other and with God for us. It is not watching to see if we have been naughty or nice. It is ever...
