Feeling Feelings? The Plight of Empaths

Because many Reiki practitioners are empaths, a common discussion among practitioners revolves around the suffering that is felt when a friend or client has an illness or is going through a situation that seems sad. Events Can't Be Judged As an empath, I always try to remember that what others are experiencing is not random and cruel. I have found,…

What Holds You Back Isn’t Real
Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It's a way of entering in two the quiet that's already there.

What Holds You Back Isn’t Real

We tend to see yogis, lamas, and other spiritual leaders as being in a class all their own. “That level of spirituality is unattainable for me!,” we may think. We may feel “less than” and unworthy. We lament, “For God’s sake, the sheer amount of work involved to get there must be an insurmountable amount of sweat and sacrifice!” We…

Acceptance — A Gift from the Universe

What if you accepted everything that came your way as if it were a gift from the Universe? What would your life look like, if you made this your daily practice?

Eye of the Storm

  We frequently find ourselves in the midst of an emotional storm. It can be through our own doing, or other people’s dramas that affect us. I’m going through one right now. Cleaning up a hoarder’s house is a disgustingly horrible task. Due to a death in the family, we find ourselves cleaning up the mess amassed over years of…

What Do You Believe?

Recently, I was asked what I believe. My first reaction was to say it doesn’t matter. But in my own heart, as I live my life, it does matter. If we are interested in more than just floating through our lives, with no rudder for steering our ship, I think we need some sort of idea or belief about what…

Blessed Release

  After many years of watching a case of domestic violence unfurl itself before my eyes, and having no way in which to extricate my loved one from its jaws of slow and steady death, blessed release has, at last, come, as she walked away. Watching injustices like this can make one bitter over time, but the challenge is to…

Who Are You?

  Who are we, really? Are we more than our labels, societal roles, familial roles or classifications? Why do we do what we do in our lives, truly? In other words, are we more than what we do or who we seem to be on the outside? Who am I? These questions can help us to get to the heart…

Share the Love at Christmas All Year Long

All There Is, Is Love I was thinking about how we crave love. As human beings, love is integral to our health and  survival as newborns and children. Hardwired into our psyches, the lack of holding and cuddling a baby can lead to failure to thrive and a host of other psychological problems, if the child survives the neglect. We…
