Sometimes it can be challenging to keep your vibration high and to stay positive, especially in what seems like great times of change and turmoil, however, staying positive is a key factor in creating the NOW that you choose to experience.
When you can stay calm and in your heart you can help those in need and also benefit the collective consciousness, which we are all a part of. When you silence your mind and connect with the present moment you connect what the vast intelligence/power of the universe itself. And it is that power which has the true ability to transform your life.

In this podcast they discuss:
Why doing your “Inner Work” is a must!

The moral of this story is, don’t let distance be a factor to keep you from meeting your soulmate!
Meeting the proverbial “girl next door” always sounded good, but let’s be realistic in today’s day and age – with the internet anything is possible!
In 2003, I started to try online dating for the first time. After 7 years as a single father I really wanted to meet someone special and like-minded to share my life with and my two young boys. I never knew that journey would lead me to meeting that special person all the way across the United States!
Patience is key! After several months of trying traditional dating sites like...
I have truly been moving through many deep levels and layers of healing, following the passing of my mother last March.
People often describe a complete transformation taking place in their lives after the death of someone close. Something about death causes you to reach deeply into your soul – as I said when my sister passed away over 4 years ago, your “heart gets broken open.”
Although my relationship...
The following is a vision that I received in October, 2011. It came to me in the evening before going to sleep while lying in bed. It was if I was actually there, living it. When I came back to this realm I took copious notes in my iphone which was on my night stand. After meditating the morning of 11/11/11, I felt guided to share this vision with our members in the form of a mass email. I got sooooo many responses from that email that I have now decided to post it on the site. I feel that this vision is waking up deep seeded cellular (and probably DNA) memories for those that read it, feel it and connect with it. I share this with unconditional love and a knowingness that we are all FAMILY. Sending you so much LOVE.
Here is the vision I was given:
Everyone on the planet instantly gets their memories back and we all remember that we are Divine beings. We realize that we all created...
This morning my Soul said this to me during a meditation and showing me as a symbolic image story of me as a precious gemstone lying buried just beneath the surface in the ground with a number of explorers looking to find me, that I, Janie, was a beautiful precious jewel that has been lying here buried in the ground.
Many have passed me by, walked over me even. I was within sight but they missed me........they missed me because they did not deserve me, they were not ready for me, they did not believe they would find me, they would never have appreciated me because they could not see my luster buried here all alone. I am centuries old.
I am waiting here for the one who does deserve me, for the one who will discover the treasure that lies within their reach. When I am found, the great value of that which I really am will be recognized, and then I will be cleaned off, polished up, gazed upon with loving eyes, and set in a precious...
It used to be common knowledge in consciousness circles that a person needed to be grounded both energetically and physically. People would talk about what foods helped them feel the most grounded, how spending time in nature helped them ground their meditative experiences and so on. However, I have noticed a trend in the last few years where people are getting very ungrounded, and are even encouraging others to engage "spiritual" practices that are very ungrounding. (Spell check says "ungrounding" is not a word, but I say that it is. )
Two of the adverse consequences of being ungrounded are that it can cause a person to be too easily swayed by the opinions of others, as well as be fooled by any of the many deceptions in our world. These are reason enough to put a...
The deeper connection of spiritual intimacy requires a dynamic interaction as well as moments of stillness and spaciousness. This constitutes the yang and yin of intimacy, the action and the receptivity. In a natural, harmonious intimate connection, there emerges a flow of giving and receiving, activity and stillness. This mirrors the dynamic nature of the Universe and all life.
Ancient Tantric yogis and Taoists intently studied this interplay in order to understand and learn how to be in alignment with life. They discovered that both the activity of creating intimate connections and the state of stillness require skill and conscious awareness. Such skills and consciousness form the essence and foundation of authentic Sacred Tantra practice. Furthermore understanding and facilitating the interplay between activity and stillness was an inherent aspect of the practices. The activity (practices) of creating intimacy are by nature initiatory -- they activate and...
Once in awhile, if we are fortunate, a simple, yet profound concept will appear in such a way as to fully command our attention, shift our understanding of life, and gift us with a more comprehensive core belief. This was the case with a wonderful little book by Gerald Jampolsky titled, "Love Is Letting Go Of Fear". Inspired (I believe) by "A Course In Miracles", Jampolsky quite simply and directly postulated that all of our experiences can be distilled down to either love or fear, and that as we release fear, love appears. I realized that this was such a fundamental, irrefutable tenet of human existence, and was amazed at how it began immediately to shift my perception of my life and life in general. I was also amazed that such an important core belief had not been presented to me from early childhood (which is a commentary on Western culture). Within a short time I was able to recognize the either/or...
