Journey into Mastery: The Integrative Wisdom of Suffering and Heartbreak in Advancing Our Soul

We are here to experience suffering, not avoid it.  Take that sentence into your heart for a moment, and see what it feels like. It’s a big statement that holds great truths and promises filled with paradox, complexity and nuance, ones that may be uncomfortable to integrate into your heart, but that, if you let in, set your soul free. We do not journey as souls to do everything we can to avoid suffering; to avoid bad and only stay on the side of good; to avoid darkness and stay purely in the light. Suffering is freely chosen as a soul as part of our spiritual evolution through many worlds of form; not as something to escape, but something to experience that serves a larger […]

A Crisis of Identity: Mass Formation Psychosis and the Awakening to Truth

We must have the courage to see things as they are, not how we want them to be. That is spiritual maturity, that is leadership, and that is what these times demand.  Truth is devastating to the ego that must hang on to its perceptual world in order to survive.  The push from the conditioned multitude against the mounting clear evidence for mass manipulation, oppression and corruption is, at its root, existential — a crisis of identity. Accepting the hard, disturbing truths is a death blow to the limited, false self that survives by believing imaginary or false things convenient to its own survival. Akin to the submissive, don’t-speak-up child who, in order to survive, must assume his abuse is for his own good, the […]

The Body is the Speaker, The Soul is the Music ~ The Subtle Journey of Embodying and Broadcasting Your Power

The body is the holder of frequency. And the frequency depends on how much trauma and programming is stored in the neurobiology and how anchored the soul, or higher self, is into the DNA. The soul longs to use the body as its tool for broadcast — to express its gifts and purpose through, held in the soul’s consciousness, as accumulated through many incarnations. For me, that broadcast is my gift of transmitting starlight to heal and empower. How powerfully I do that depends on the frequency I hold at my cellular level. As I embody my soul power more, that frequency increases and my broadcast becomes that much stronger. Though there may be exceptions, the soul generally doesn’t override the body. It doesn’t push […]

Healing Your Inner Star Child and Liberating the Innocence and Power of Your Soul Star Essence

“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” ― Carl Sagan, Cosmos We are all children of God, the Universe, Christ, Buddha Consciousness, Brahman, whatever feels right to you. And each of us has what I call a soul star essence; for, we are, along with everything else, made of stardust! Hydrogen, nitrogen, your computer and clothes, everything is made from this magical and primordial Source! Knowing, embracing and shining our star nature is essential to our fulfillment, to realizing our soul purpose. And healing our inner star child is a big part of that.  Disconnection from divinity The root of all […]

Nurturing Goodness in Children and Ourselves ~ The Indigenous Nature of Soul

Years ago, while in the final moments with a life coaching client, I said something I’d never said to anyone: “You are goodness.” I was surprised at the spontaneous words that poured from my mouth. It was as though something in the far reaches of my soul knew exactly the unique acknowledgement my client needed to hear. For, at that moment, this erudite man of determined reserve leaned forward and began to sob. How dearly he needed to be seen. How dearly had he longed to touch his forgotten goodness. There is goodness in each one of us. Goodness is our true nature. Yet, for many, if not most, we have forgotten it. Inculcated with false ideas of what it means to be a good, […]

The Darkening World Needs Less of Your Fight and More of Your Light

“You cannot change the world. You can only allow it to be changed through you.” ~ Lynda Austin As the darkness of this troubling world only gets darker, the old mechanisms you’ve dedicatedly hung your hat on may no longer work or be enough to be the change agents our world needs. While helpful and necessary, it won’t be enough to simply advocate for change, to protest with your impassioned speeches, to spread your important messages on social media. It won’t be enough to continue pushing and fighting in the way you always have in your community, in your vocation. Certainly not without an imperative inner shift. Something more is needed of us now that is far from personal, and beyond our understanding. Only light […]

There is Knowledge, and then there is Knowing ~ Learning to Trust and Make Space for Your Inner Wisdom

“Never mistake knowledge for wisdom. One helps you make a living; the other helps you make a life.” ~ Sandra Carey There is knowledge, and then there is knowing. Knowledge is finite. It is the facts of life: a butterfly has two wings; Earth is round; the sky is blue. Knowledge has defined edges, beginnings and endings, a specific this is it; it is information the mind grasps in completeness… until it doesn’t; for our understanding of things evolves. One day we live in a geocentric solar system, and then the next day it is the sun, not the Earth, the planets revolve around. One day our knowledge informs us that we must spank children. The next day this is considered cruel. Like a monkey, […]

When You Can No Longer Dance the Dance of Roles in Your Relationship

“It takes more courage to examine the dark corners of your own soul than it does for a soldier to fight on a battlefield.” ~ W. B. Yeats Roles have been around since man first graced the planet. I’m not talking about outer roles such as butcher, baker and candlestick maker. Rather, I’m speaking about inner roles such as Pleaser, Controller, Stablizer, and Go-To-Person. Also knows as emotional functions, they are ways of being in the world not unique to us. Anyone can be an Accommodator, Cynic, Peacemaker, Good Girl/Boy and Bad Girl/Boy. We have all at one point been these characters, for within us there is a bit of each. But not everyone can or will be a police officer, legal assistant, rock star […]

Yes, Trouble’s Brewing Out There, but Are You Playing, Living, Despite it All?

There is a lot of turbulence in the world, and it is very easy to dwell on climate change, the US election, Brexit and more. Don’t turn a blind eye to it all, but do notice how much you are turning towards the doom and gloom versus what makes you come alive, here and now. For those on the healing journey, the “spiritual path” as some like to call it, you may be inclined to inner-work yourselves to death, endlessly processing the fine far away corners of your psyche. And for all of us, we may find it easy to focus more on bleakness than beauty, folly than fun, problems than possibilities and play. Yes this is somewhat dichotomous, I’m aware, for there can be […]

Beyond the Need to Prove Yourself in Sports and Life ~ A Journey of Healing “Not Enough”

Those doing soul work, who want the searing truth more than solace or applause, know each other right away. Those who want something else turn and take a seat in another room. Soul-makers find each other’s company. ~ Rumi Like many boys, I participated in organized sports. I had my name on many rosters including those of soccer, rugby, hockey, basketball and volleyball. It was soccer, though, that was my first passion. I was a goalie, a good one. I generally excelled in most sports, and my bedroom was graced with a collection of trophies to prove it, but it was in soccer that I shone the brightest. And like many kids, I was competitive. Very competitive! I was hard on myself. A goal let […]
