Everywhere are Signs

Everywhere are Signs

Think of your GPS this way: If you enter the wrong address into your car navigation system to take you home, it will take you where you told it but never get you back to your house. This is how so many people are living their lives. The Creator has given them instructions to get them to their place of destination, but like John Newton, they are not going in the direction they ultimately want to go. Your inner GPS will never lead you to a place where you cannot discover the home within yourself.

When I first started working with my teacher of shamanism, I understood two things: 1) A shaman practices wholeness and seeslife through the eyes of infinity; 2) A practicing, awake spiritual being cannot do deep spiritual work by being in a box or doing life the way he or she has always done it.

I was able to see that even though I believe in an infinite God, I was not allowing my infinite God to create new things for me. I had continued to pray about my same problems and my same challenges, and I was unwilling to use my trust muscle. I was continuing to be the chicken of old beliefs rather than flying in my eagle suit.

On one of my spirit journeys, which you might prefer to call a deep meditation, I was asking the question “How can I be free?” The answer I received was an elderly sage giving me a feather. I started to notice that no matter where I was, whatever city or country I might be in, when I started to go back to old ways of thinking and old ways of seeing, I would find a feather or feathers. They would literally fall down from the sky in front of me at times.

One time I was speaking at Bletchley Park in Milton Keynes outside London to an all-day class on stress management, and I was feeling sorry for myself. I doubted that I was where I needed to be, and I was questioning my path. Why am I here talking to these people about topics that are not very deep or interesting to me? How can I really teach stress management when I am not allowed in the courses to talk about being connected to a higher power? The company had made it clear that they wanted to approach the material from a corporate/motivational perspective rather than a spiritual one. I imagine they were afraid they would offend the non-believers. What’s the point? I took a break, and when I returned, there were twenty to thirty feathers in the spot where I had been standing to do my talk. It brought me to tears. I became awake and went from a near-life experience to being fully present and engaged in infinity. I became whole.

Looking for Love

Looking for Love

I believe God wants us to know….that love is not what you want, it is what you are. It is very important to not get these two confused. If you think that love is what you want, you will go searching for it all over the place. If you think love is what you are,…

Love is The Answer … Always!

Love is The Answer … Always!

Love is letting go of fear -Dr. Gerald Jampolsky- Love isn’t put in our heart to stay…love isn’t love until we give it away. It is crucial to the human spirit to love. Look at nature…all creatures have a sense of love and being loved. I have always remembered a story that Dr. Deepak Chopra…

Perhaps life is perfectly designed to be a mystery?

Perhaps life is perfectly designed to be a mystery?

Perhaps life is perfectly designed to be a mystery so we can allow the mystery to be perfect by design. Deep, right? But think about it: The mystery is a mystery for a reason. I remember talking to a student who was asking me why he could not know in advance that his prayer was…

Whole Self

Whole Self

When we live from a place of wholeness, then we are not experiencing life through the eyes of lack. Therefore, we can give freely of our time, our talent, and our love, for we know that the more we give, the more we will have to give. When we live from a place of wholeness,…
