From Questions to Insights: Development of a New Worldview

Development of a New Worldview: From Questions to Insights
I'm old enough to have witnessed the deaths of several dear friends, family members, and acquaintances. Good people all, with very diverse characteristics. Yet, years ago I was struck by what I recognized as a similar thread woven through many of their psyches, a thread I hadn't noticed previously because I took it for granted as a condition of life.

Opening the Door to Trusting What You Are Feeling

Opening the Door to Trusting What You Are Feeling

The Power of our Emotions and What They Are Trying To Tell Us

The Power of our Emotions and What They Are Trying To Tell Us

Working with Your Inner Children
We like to think of ourselves as one congruent identity, one Self. Whether we are a forty-five-year-old businessman, a twenty-year-old college student or a seventy-year-old retiree, what we think of ourselves is based on what we are currently doing and who we believe ourselves to be.

Deep Listening to Receive Inner Guidance Requires Slowing Down

Deep Listening Requires Slowing Down
Each of us has our own beliefs about receiving spiritual help. I interchange the terms guides and intuition, for they are intimately connected. But whether we attribute the guidance we receive to angels or our own intuitive powers, we cannot hear it if we do not slow down and listen. Listening, really listening, is a holy experience.

Not In Contact With The Inner Compass?

Not In Contact With The Inner Compass?
The shocking truth is that many of us have lost contact with our Inner Compass – with our connection to this Great Universal Intelligence – and so we have lost contact with our own internal guidance system. And because of this, we are not truly in contact with how we really feel about things and so we flounder in our life situations and life becomes a struggle. I know this sounds strange, but it is true nevertheless.

How To Take Your Intuition Home With You

How To Take Your Intuition Home With YouA question I often hear my students ask is, “How do I stay tuned into my intuition and receive messages from my inner divine guidance?” They do very well in class and in the online sessions but when they go off on their own, life takes over and they feel disconnected.

Expanding Your Connection with Nature and the Cosmos

Expanding Your Connection with Nature and the CosmosYour body “knows” connection with nature when you hike, garden, watch the moon rise, or collect stones and shells.

The Solution Is Just A Stone's Throw Away

The Solution is Just a Stone's Throw AwaySome life situations generate feelings of helplessness or hopelessness and intellectual reasoning is not sufficient for figuring out what to do or what to change. Our patterns of behavior, thoughts and habits often unconsciously block new ideas and attitudes for fear of the unknown. In this case, other approaches are required.

Giving Your Intuition a Seat at the Table

Giving Your Intuition a Seat at the TableWe have two inner voices. One voice comes from the rational brain - the temptress, the rebel who wants what she wants when she wants it, the voice that is governed by "shoulds." The other voice is that still quiet inner knowing, what is called our intuition.

How To Ask Your Intuition the Right Kinds of Questions

If God Spoke Through Your Mouth, What Would The Message Be?

Are You Actively Imagining and Creating Your Reality?If reality is like a dream, we must act in it without suffering from it, as we do in lucid dreams, knowing that the world is what we think it is.

Without a Paddle: The Importance of Listening to Inner Promptings

Without a Paddle: The Importance of Listening to Inner PromptingsYou just never know when that little inner prompting will come… and how important it is to listen to it when it comes.

How To Connect To The Spirit Within

A Sixth Sense? How We Can Tell That Eyes Are Watching UsWe’ve all had that feeling that somebody is watching us – even if we’re not looking directly at their eyes.

There's Something More Going On... Imagination is Infinite

There's Something More Going On... Imagination is InfiniteIn some ways, imagination has gotten kind of a bad rap, lumped in as a kind of fluffy mental activity somewhere on the order of daydreaming or fantasizing... When I refer to the imagination, I am referring to that center of creative consciousness which is the portal to all ideas, to every discovery and invention.

The Cosmic Mass: Risking to Follow Inner Promptings

The Cosmic Mass: Risking to Follow Inner PromptingsJoyce and I have written before about the importance of listening to those sometimes subtle promptings that can change our lives.

What One Sees Without Eyes

What One Sees Without EyesIn order to adapt to the world of the seeing, blind people are obliged to declare themselves unable to see — and, believe me, I know what I’m talking about, for that has happened to me even when I knew very well that it didn’t correspond to reality and was not true.

Seeing Auras Is Normal

Seeing Auras Is NormalSeeing colors is considered normal for sighted people. Yet, to the visually challenged, ordinary colors do not exist. Those who are blind to the auric field also have a disability, for seeing auric colors is as normal as seeing colors through the eyes. We are all born to perceive subtle energies.

We Are All Shamans on a Fascinating Life Journey

We Are All Shamans on a Fascinating Life JourneyI believe, as Ipupiara (an anthropologist, shaman, and healer) said, “We are all shamans. I am no different from or better than you are.

The Sixth Sense and the Seventh Sense: Part of Our Biological Nature?

The Sixth Sense 
and the Seventh Sense: Part of Our Biological Nature?

Of all the terms used to describe such phenomena as telepathy, “sixth sense” seems to me a better starting point than any of the others. This has a more positive meaning than “ESP” or “the paranormal,” in that it implies a kind of sensory system over and above the known senses...

Aligning with Your Higher Self: The Cosmic Hot and Cold Game

Aligning with Your Higher Self: The Cosmic Hot and Cold GameRemember the hot and cold game you used to play as a kid? Someone would hide an object, such as a pen, and you would try to find it... I believe God—or the universe—is really playing the hot and cold game with each of us.

How “Normal” People Experience Hearing Voices

How “Normal” People Experience Hearing VoicesWe all hear voices that don’t exist. As much as we may try to deny this, it is a normal human experience.

Mind and Matter: Is The World We Live in Real or Virtual?

Mind and Matter: Is The World We Live in Real or Virtual?

The most enigmatic aspect of quantum theory is that the observer cannot be separated from the observed. Both are needed to “create” what we commonly call reality.

Strengthening Your Intuition While Playing Spider Solitaire

Spider Solitaire & Intuition 

Oftentimes, we hesitate using our intuition because of the "risk" of being wrong. What if the "voice" we're hearing, or the hunch we're getting is wrong? In some situations, as in chemo or not chemo, operation or not operation, change jobs or not, divorce or not, it's a "life-threatening" or life-altering choice. However, if...

Testing and Validation

One of my children brought to my attention a TV program that he was watching. On the program, a scientist was testing individuals who had gifts similar to mine.

Communicating with Animals

Animals are always trying to get through to us. They are constantly sending us intuitive messages that we aren't aware of. However, in spite of ourselves, some of those messages are getting through.

The Power of Imagination & The Importance of Honoring It

The Power of Imagination & The Importance of Honoring It

by Robert Moss. When have you said to yourself, "It's only my imagination"? I've said it at a moment of strong intuition — intuition that subsequently proved to be correct — that lacked supporting evidence in the moment. I've also said it when I've had a glimpse of a wonderful future — and then betrayed that vision by diverting my energy to listing all the reasons it cannot be...

Awareness & Intuition

Our physical senses -- hearing, sight, taste, smell, and touch -- are powerful receptors, able to retrieve immense amounts of information every second. They send signals through the nervous system to the brain, which then processes and...

You Already Know

You Already Know by Alan Cohen.

by Alan Cohen. When we need to know a truth, we tend to look outside ourselves for answers, and the last place we look is in our own heart. Meanwhile, all that we could ever need to know abides at the core of our being.

It Ain't Me, Babe!

Someone is talking about this thing called truth, is communicating and demonstrating something about reality. You sit back and watch. If he makes it through your severe testing and, for now, you accept what he offers, then you applaud him, sing his praises, and use him as your argument and protection.

Beyond Cataclysm

Being a Closet-Intuitive: Choosing Between Security & Adventure

Being a Closet-Intuitive: Choosing Between Security & AdventureThere is widespread distrust and fear of our intuitive powers. For one thing, we are taught to be wary of our "fortune-tellers." However, true psychic or intuitive sensitivity is the exact opposite of "fortune-telling." It is our intellect, not our intuitive ability, that looks toward the future. Our intuitive sense, on the other hand, is most profoundly directed into the moment -- into the here and now.

Diversions on the Intuitive Path

Diversions on the Intuitive PathIf we all have access to intuition, information that would help us live happier, more creative, and fulfilled lives, what is it that keeps us from tuning in to, recognizing, and benefiting from it?
