Leading from the heart rather than the head:

Leading from the heart rather than the head:

When we learn to lead from the heart rather than the head, we will have true leaders who can bring humanity into a deeper awareness of spirituality.

Maybe public speaking isn’t your gift. Maybe counseling or being a life coach isn’t your gift, either. Maybe it’s organization or a green thumb or the desire to be the logistics coordinator, giving people rides to your local event. Each could be your arena of leadership. And remember the one butterfly who flaps his wings across the globe is felt by us. We are all affected by the actions of everyone else.

Sometimes it seems we have too many people who truly need to help themselves before they can fully help others. Some people attempt to help others too soon on their own healing journeys. We all may know a few of these folks, who get a business card and a website and make great claims before they have completed their own life training program.

Anyone who wants to be a teacher should ask him- or herself the following: Am I walking my talking? Am I modeling my message? If I am making claims about relationships, am I in a relationship? If I am sharing advice about money, do I have some money? If I claim to understand The Secret (which is not a secret) by Rhonda Byrne, do I manifest what the book and the movie say? And will any secret be permanent if I do not allow God’s creation of me to become actualized? Will my life magnify my Creator if the discovery of my own potential remains a secret to myself?

Do you have any good news?

Do you have any good news?

One of the things I realized a few years ago is how people, myself included, would elaborate endlessly to others about all the bad things that happen… the drama, the misfortune, the inconveniences of day to day life, how much gas keeps going up, the cost of living, the way children are today, the spot…

Sacred Texts

Sacred Texts

I’ve always resonated with these words of Carl Jung, stated in Memories, Dreams, and Reflections: “My life often seemed to me like a story that has no beginning and no end. I had the feeling that I was a historical fragment, an excerpt for which the preceding and succeeding text was missing. I could well imagine…

Finding My Shaman

Finding My Shaman

When I visited a friend and congregant who had tragically lost her husband and found her filled with energy, I was astonished. She explained that a shaman had done a ritual on her and invited the energies of her losses throughout the years to come back into her being. In that moment and that space,…
