Metaphysical Christmas — Joseph

    If we look at the Bible, not as a literal text, but instead as a book of the Soul, then we can sit in the energy of the Bible stories and ask what they mean to us today. As we do this, we can look at the characters that exist in the stories and the characteristics that similarly exist within us. This personalizes scripture and allows us to utilize scripture as Spiritual Food and insight. My last blog explored the Christmas story from the perspective of Mary; Jesus’ mother. This was followed by a meditation to connect with our own inner Mother Mary. Today’s blog will look at Jesus’ father Joseph, also followed by a meditation. What do we know about Jesus’ human father; Joseph? We know he was a carpenter. We know he was a good and observant Jew. We know he comes from the lineage of Abraham and David; which is important as both were faithful servants of God. We know that Joseph is the...

Metaphysical Christmas — Mary

Merry Christmas. I LOVE this time of year. I like the symbolism, the Christmas cards with long letters from friends I miss, the decorating, the music, the lights around the cacti, and the corny Christmas movies that end with fairy dust sprinkled lavishly across the tv or movie screen. And, I enjoy revisiting the story of the birth of Jesus through the lens of the Soul. For the next few weeks I am going to write about the metaphysical meaning of Christmas. In addition, I will post meditations to move us into the energy of the story of the the Christmas story; the birth of Divine Love in human form. Today, we are going to explore the role of Mary, the mother of Jesus. As a Biblical refresher, below is the story of the angel giving Mary a heads up on what is to come. Luke 1: 26-28 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged...

Meditating through Illness to Health

Let me give you the greatest gift I can ever gift you. Here it is … a reminder to enter into daily mediation. That’s it. Meditation is one of the most powerful practices on this planet, without exception. Saturday I attended a manifesting workshop at a local bookstore facilitated by a long time friend of mine whom I adore. She  ordered lunch for all of us, which included a beautiful Caesar salad made of crisp, green, Romaine lettuce. Within 24 hours I was writhing on my living room floor screaming as I held my stomach in pain. Shortly following was a fever of 104 degrees. Whammo. Fine one minute and delirious the next. My friend who was at the house tucked me into bed with five comforters as I shook in intense cold. Teeth shattering I made my way to the toilet to vomit for hours. Okay … I’ll spare you all of the following details; but suffice it to say, I’m guessing I had e. Coli. That nasty...

Who Am I Becoming?

I walked through hell for two months. Okay, I don’t really believe in hell, but if I did, I was walking through it. As an emotional empath, I was experiencing in my body the impact of shifts in the cosmos, country, and casa. And the shifts in my home were enough to take a weaker person down. Through the hellacious stroll, I continued to be grateful that I believed in a God of Good, not punishment. This meant while taking each deliberate step forward I knew I was surrounded by The Presence of Peace, Love, Joy, and Prosperity that regardless of my perception, I was completely and totally held. I also knew that this Presence was within me and would sync up to the outer Presence girding me with a promise of something new transforming and emerging from within me. I cannot imagine how anyone could walk through this physical, mental, and spiritual life without being aware of their connection  to the Source of All of It. So I start...

The Seven Spiritual Practices: A Path of Devotion

Mystics all share the common thread of having a direct experience of God that transforms them from one perception of the world to another; what Christians refer to as a born again experience. This experience includes a shift of living out of the mental realm of judgment, figuring things out, naming and organizing, linear thinking, living and projecting our thoughts onto the world to living from the Eternal Heart where Love directs the mystic. This shift happens in one of two ways — through Grace prompted usually by what we would refer to as a “tragedy,” like a near death experience or the death of a loved one. This is a wake up through a shock in the physical body which rearranges and completely changes how one sees their life on planet earth. The other way of transforming is a drip method where spiritual practice is engaged in as a discipline and little-by-little the individual becomes more attune to the Higher Dimensions and awakens as Buddhism would describe like...
