Eyes of the Soul

Eye in the Sky

If you think of life as a spiritual journey, then at sometime you will find yourself at the proverbial fork in the road. You have to make an important decision. Seeing clearly, so that your choice is congruent with you inner truth, is vital to your soul’s progress on its evolutionary path.

So, I offer this reminder—because you know this—guidance is always there for you as to every decision on your journey, no matter how large, or how small. Trust that. Trust yourself to know what is right for you. You have the answers inside of you. Guidance is not only for those who are somehow special, or psychically gifted. Intuition, or inner knowing, is a common sense that is associated with your natural state of being. It is normal, not paranormal; ordinary, not extraordinary. Your inner self—the invisible side of you that is one with all of life—provides you with information to direct and guide you. The Universe is always communicating its wisdom, if you are willing to listen and be guided.

Beyond Fear

Beyond Fear

Spring is a time of new growth and of new beginnings. It’s also typically viewed as a time of renewed hope. After surviving the harsh, cold of winter, the arrival of spring, with its gentler climate, pale green buds and tender blossoms, is thought to be a herald of better times to come. This year it seems, however, that some people can’t shake the winter chill.

In my healing practice, I see people who deeply desire change and wish to participate in the renewal of spring. They want to take a step forward in their lives, to stretch beyond their comfort zones, to heal and to grow. Yet paradoxically, they also fear change. I think this can be true for all of us, at one time, or another. Each of us has experienced fear. Our fears can stem from past trauma, relate to the unknown of the future, or be a combination of both. When innate desire to evolve and fear of change push and pull us in opposite directions, we get stuck.

About Reiki

Reiki

Because a lot of people ask me questions about Reiki, I want to share a little bit more about it with you.

Reiki is a natural system of healing dating back to the late 1800s. Practitioners channel healing energy —“Rei” means universal and “ki” means life force energy—to the recipient through the palms of their hands. As Reiki is an intentional healing method, you can send healing remotely. 

Be the River

It’s been said that life is a river. Like the continual flowing of the water, the only constant in our lives is change. The changes come, whether we’re choosing them, rolling with them, or resisting them. There are endings and beginnings, death and rebirth, release and renewal, creation and destruction.

Nothing is real, and nothing endures but change. (Kabbalah)

Sometimes, we’re of two minds about making needed adjustments, or facing the inevitable changes, in our lives. We may desire something new, or recognize an inevitability, and yet, at the same time, resist it. But, resistance is exhausting. It’s simply not a good way to manage our energy, because the energy tied up in anxious thoughts, denial, judgment, fear or attachment—all forms of resistance—is not available to create with. Like wanting to sail your boat while dropping anchor, or driving with the parking break on, it requires more energy than we have to move ahead.

The Paradox of Acceptance

The Paradox of Acceptance

Instead of taking the present moment as it is, how often do you expend a lot of energy struggling with it? Do you think, or say, things such as, “I don’t like it this way.” “It shouldn’t be this way.” This isn’t right.” “Why is this happening?” “I don’t want to deal with this”? Responding to life experiences in this way sets up a very unproductive and disempowering mind-loop. Because no matter how much we try to avoid life in this moment: It just is. Our protests do nothing to change things. Yet, they deplete our vital energy.

So, what’s the alternative? Say yes to life and embrace it!
