What is Your Soul Requesting?

Eleven years ago I went through a real rough patch. Real rough. I had a major medical procedure, an intimate relationship ended and my dad died. This is what was happening on the visible realm. On the inside of my being, the way I saw and interacted with the world was getting torn down, thought-by-thought, belief-by-belief, projection-by-projection, judgment-by-judgment and experience-by-experience. And it was rough and tough. The only thing I could do was enter into silence, meditation and prayer and listen to myself while feeling so much unprocessed old stuff and crying often. I had to close out the outside world and go deeper in order to hear the Depths of my Being. I had to. My Soul wouldn’t let me do anything else. I assigned myself a year to do this internal sabbatical, but the “I” that gave myself this timeline wasn’t my Soul. One year turned into two years. Then two years turned into three and then close to the end of the third year I finally...

The Spacious Present Now Vital Aliveness

Many years ago Amy, Dr. Michael and I got together weekly for two years to vision a new spiritual community in Scottsdale. It would be called ImpulsUS. This community came together to “experiment in The Field.” We would meditate, listen to The Space around us and between us, paint, write poetry, receive transmissions from anointed beings of Divine Light. It was magical, fun, and different. When the three of us were receiving The Community Values from our visioning process, Spaciousness was one of them. Why would Spaciousness be a spiritual community’s value? Because when one has Space within oneself, there is perspective, non-attachment, and lots of Love present. When there is Spaciousness between two people each person has their own sovereign self, gratitude exists, and often co-creating takes place. There is room for judgment to be in the space, afterall all is welcome, although ironically, judgment likes small contracted dark spaces so it doesn’t seem to take hold. This past week there has been a lot of news coming...

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...
