Reiki Master-Class: Stepping Into My Power

Reiki Master-Class: Stepping Into My Power

One of the students there, John, is a retired NYC FireFighter. He was there for 9-11. Very interesting to see someone change SO much with this kind of path. He’s studied Qigong, Reiki, and a bunch of other stuff, all within a small amount of time. He has lost 100 lbs, changed his anger issues,(…)

We must become love-benders

We must become love-benders

Thought: Wanting to cry, but not being able to, is more frustrating than actually wanting to cry…or crying itself. So it stands to reason, that wanting to love someone, but not being able to…..So that’s why we ache. Not because we need to be loved, but because we want to FEEL love for someone. We(…)

Personal Accountability Model

Personal Accountability Model

‘We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.’ ~ Carlos Castaneda One of my greatest challenges this year is to continually practice being accountable for my own happiness, rather than being a victim of my life situation, and waiting for something or someone to “save me”.(…)

If Not Here, Then Where?

I realized today that I have spent 90% of my life trying to avoid who or where I am. The problem is, I’m not sure who, or where, else I would rather be; because when I arrive, the pattern still persists. If not here, then where? If not me, then who?

Daniel Pinchbeck’s Poignant Digression

Daniel Pinchbeck wrote an article about how Burning Man is ruined now by rich a_holes taking it over, and diluting the major ideals it stood for, but the digression he takes into the future of humanity is so poignant and beautifully written. When he discusses the portion I have pasted below, it really did make(…)

What Facebook’s Awful Name Policy Did for Me, and Why I am Grateful

What Facebook’s Awful Name Policy Did for Me, and Why I am Grateful

Most of you won’t read this. TLDR is a thing. My¬†apologies, but cogitation is difficult when a attention span is limited to 150 characters or less. I was lazily scrolling through Facebook on my phone one afternoon, and suddenly I found myself kicked out. All my apps demanded I sign in again. Oh no! I(…)

5 Little Pieces, One Big Puzzle

5 Little Pieces, One Big Puzzle

Here are the 5 most-simplified lessons we have learned over the past 5 years: 1. Nothing is personal. No seriously, even when an aggressor thinks it is personal, they’re still choosing when/how to act based on their own inner workings (fears/wants/needs). 2. Emotions are our teachers. We need to stop stopping/hiding from them. Let them(…)

A Choice – By Daivet

A Choice – By Daivet

After experiencing another rejuvenation/blessing, Daivet shared with us this beautiful message: Through a lot of my own and others’ experiences in life I found so many ways to learn, love, and grow. I recently just came out of a very rough situation that trapped me not only in my mind but trapped me in a(…)

Eggs and Dollars

I think I finally understand why I hate money. People that focus on money are idolizing the wrong thing, and so are distracted from the path of enlightenment progression. And if the Egg theory from yesterday is accurate (hypothetically speaking), then those that are after only money are the spiritual slackers. They’re keeping us in(…)
