[Monday Message] Regaining Personal Power

Dale Carnegie once said “Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.” These are the things that sap our personal power. All three are a form of avoidance of being in the moment. The overarching dilemma of life in today‚Äôs world is a disconnect from our power. The imbalance…

Mercury Retrograde in Libra (from the newsletter)

Mercury has gone retrograde in Libra. This is the third and final Mercury Retrograde of the year; all three have been in an air sign. Air is most often associated with the mental body. Mercury is a mental planet. So this retrograde may be a little extra. Also, we kick off in the same degree…

[Monday Message] The Habit of Distraction

It is part of the human condition to fall victim to the habit of distraction. It is part of spiritual evolution to guard against that. A Tibetan story tells of a meditation student who, while meditating in his room, believed he saw a spider descending in front of him. Each day the menacing creature returned,…

[Monday Message] Breaking through indecision

I talk about the Negative Ego a lot, because it is part of what defines our entire experience on this plane of existence. The Negative Ego generates fear, it creates indecision, it brings up control issues, and it confuses us with the illusion of lack. It all goes back to the chimera that the Divine…

[Monday Message] Do Not Sit Idly By

Far too often, we teach children that sitting still is the definition of being good. This translates, in our adult lives, into not interfering when interference is called for. Whether your personal boundaries are being violated or someone is doing something out in the world that is patently wrong, speaking up is the right thing…

Current energies, astrological and solar

There are some BIG energies going on right now. We are in the waning moon, coming out of the second Full Moon in Aquarius, headed towards a Mercury Retrograde, and we’re having some powerful solar activity. You may be feeling out of sorts, overreactive, sensitive, depressed, avoidant, and/or anxious. Granted, considering the state of the…

[Monday Message] Teamwork

Teamwork is the foundation of everything. The idea of an independent human being is a myth. The very fact that you exist means you had parents, unless you were created in a lab, by a team of scientists. You were not spontaneously manifested into existence by nothing. Except… You kind of were, when you get…

[Monday Message] Inner peace

Gandhi is often credited with saying “be the change you wish to see in the world” or “be the peace you want to see in the world.” What he actually said is “We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body….

[Monday Message] Lack of Perfection is not Failure

Perfection is an illusion created by the negative ego. First of all, what we think of as perfection is indefinable. When we do something really well, the negative ego tells us it’s still not good enough. So it serves to keep us separated from our joy, our heartsong, our connection to Source. Perfection can keep…

[Monday Message] Bringing goals into reality

The path to achieving your goals lies between the principles of idea and form. When you have an idea, a goal, allow yourself to sit with it before planning, let alone acting. Then create a plan of action, which includes breaking things down into the smallest baby steps possible, so the next indicated action is…
