Awakening is for Everyone

What's the difference between an awakening and enlightenment? As I see it now, awakening is more in our immediate grasp and has a more contained scope. We are here to evolve and being here helps us evolve. |

How does it sound to you when someone uses the word awakening? I used to get a bit tweaked whenever I heard someone use this word. I thought they were using “awakening” in place of “enlightenment,” yet now I see the difference between the two words and actually appreciate that one can lead to the… Read more

Looking Back To Move Forward

Looking Back to Move Forward by

Every once in a while I will hear about some healing modality that promises easy emotional transformation without pain, or without having to revisit the trauma from the past.

What happened was this vision changed her. Her new… Read more

Gratitude Changes Everything by Lotus Flower Living

My mom had a set of Rita Davenport tapes on success and time management that I used to listen to in my late teens. There was a small but powerful section in her program about gratitude. I forget what exactly she said that impressed me. Maybe it was the idea that gratitude changes everything or… Read more

I recently finished a three-week mentorship program I designed for our 20-year-old niece, a junior at Virginia Tech majoring in Psychology, who eventually wants to do something in the healing arts field, like me. She reached out last fall to share an email she was sending out to holistic therapists in her college town of… Read more

In This Energy So Much Is Possible
