Why isn’t spiritual guidance more direct?

As someone who works with Spirit Guides on a daily basis, I spend a lot of time thinking about guidance: how it’s transmitted, how we can seek it out, what forms it takes, where it comes from, and so forth. Fascinating stuff. Yesterday, I was thinking about the ways in which I receive guidance and […]

Sometimes Guidance Looks Like a Total Jerk

In my last post, I talked about some hairy interactions I was having with an acquaintance. If you missed it, you can read it here so you know what the heck I’m talking about in today’s post. Midway through the situation with this acquaintance, Petunia, and shortly before writing my previous blog post, I realized […]

Shine On, You Crazy Diamond (Haters Gonna Hate)

That’s me at age four, totally unconcerned about being “too awesome.” Whew, the last few days have been intense. I’ve been getting really triggered in my interactions with someone whom I’ll call…Petunia, and that has brought up some very interesting lessons on childhood, insecurities, shining bright in the face of criticism, and synchronicity. Let’s just […]

Are you actually helping…or are you energy vamping people?

Story time: I met someone some months back who is teaching me a lot about the true nature of helping. Let’s call them Veronica. When Veronica walks into a room, she has a big smile on her face and it’s beaming out to everyone in the room. Nice, right? For some reason, this put me […]

The True Secret of Self-Help

I’m a total self-help junkie–books, workshops, you name it. A few years ago, I started feeling a tug o’ war between my never-ending self-improvement project and the idea that we are inherently divine and possess something that can never be wounded or defiled, something that doesn’t need fixing. So, which is it? Do we need some […]

A Super Awesome Benefit of Meditation

I’ve written before about choosing conscious change over chronic pain, and this concept has been on my mind a lot lately. I spent some time with family over the holidays, and it was fascinating to see generational patterns and how they exhibited in someone who has been doing pattern x for ten years versus someone who has been […]

Using Synchronicity to Light Your Way

In magic and spirituality, there’s a lot of talk about synchronicity, but what’s the big deal? First off, what is synchronicity? It’s a term coined by Carl Jung, and to condense a few of his super-smart, verbose definitions into my own, it means a joining of events that are not apparently linked by cause and […]

So, you’re afraid of turning into your parents.

Yeah, me too. This fear motivated the vast majority of my choices throughout my early twenties, and looking back, I was like a ping pong ball, violently reacting and bouncing from one thing to the next, always accompanied by the sinking sensation that, try as I might, I was turning into my parents. A full decade […]

How I Stopped Sucking at Money Management

My relationship with money sucks. Or at least, it used to. Thanks to help from my Guides, that suckiness has faded dramatically over the past few months, and there’s one Suckiness Removal Strategy in particular that I want to share with you here. Through a number of meditation sessions, my Guides helped me to see how impossibly […]

When Waiting Is Making You Crazy

I’ve been noticing a theme in conversations with friends, recent tarot readings, and my own internal dialogue as of late. It seems that, for most of us humans, it’s really, really hard to wait. I think all of us, at one time or another, have had thoughts along the lines of, “I want this thing […]
