From A Female Perspective

 “When the Yoga Sutra began to be taught by priests and scholars from a masculine Hindu tradition, one with the power of gurus and temples and decades of study behind it, the feminine aspect of Spirit, Devi, began to be pushed aside and a disdainful attitude toward women arose.” – Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D. Yoga, Power,Continue reading “From A Female Perspective”

Reinventing Ourselves

“Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.”  ~ Hal Borland ~ Art by Mark Duffin (shared from   ॐ Simplicity, Elegance and Grace of Nature ॐ ) *** As one who has spent decades reinventing myself career-wise or at leastContinue reading “Reinventing Ourselves”

How I Feel

*** “The beauty of the trees, the softness of the air, the fragrance of the grass, they speak to me. The summit of the mountain, the thunder of the sky, the rhythm of the sea, speaks to me. The faintness of the stars, the freshness of the morning, the dewdrop on the flower, speaks toContinue reading “How I Feel”

NLP and Reframing Situations

While listening to a Brandy Gillmore session this morning on healing a client’s self-blame/inner-guilt, I finally realized what techniques she was actually using with her client—it was a mixture of distant energy-work, combined with light hypnosis and some serious NLP (Neuro-Linguistist Programming) phrasing and reframing meant to shift the client’s current unhealthy ‘stuck-perspective’ and expandContinue reading “NLP and Reframing Situations”

Assessing the ‘Tapestry of Life’

Alberto Villoldo   “We have to become still in the midst of the turmoil so we can observe clearly how our actions and the actions of others, past and present, fit together in the tapestry of life. In the timeless instant when we stop moving and simply witness the moment, the dust settles and the bigContinue reading “Assessing the ‘Tapestry of Life’”

Becoming a Spiritual Warrior

I really didn’t want to blatantly rip off Alberto Villoldo’s latest newsletter, but what he mentions here is worth sharing in its entirety with others who might have some interest in the subject matter discussed. In some ways this does remind me of Buddhism’s “Eight-fold Path”—or “The Way to Enlightenment,” complete with the “Four NobleContinue reading “Becoming a Spiritual Warrior”

Sudoku Revelation

I was journaling a few days ago and mentioned that I’d just had a minor revelation while working a more challenging Sudoku puzzle, which was to “Keep working it,” until the correct number for that square became obvious (‘can be this number, but can’t be that one’, etc.). That one breakthrough puzzle piece then becameContinue reading “Sudoku Revelation”

Healing Our Collective Trauma

Because I’ve signed up for other FREE online psychology/spirituality conferences, I now receive numerous offers for additional conferences; and this is one I will definitely be registering for as I recognize a few speakers from other summits, etc.  I’ll admit that I am one of the most ‘dangerous of beasts’: an armchair psychologist with noContinue reading “Healing Our Collective Trauma”

The Universal Creative Force

(Sometimes a post is so spot-on appropriate, I only have to share it so that others can also absorb the higher energy from it.) Tao & Zen  “There is a Universal Creative Force connecting all beings and things, a source of love and wisdom that can be drawn from (and revealed through the creation ofContinue reading “The Universal Creative Force”

Reset

Tao & Zen “To the Taoist mentality, the aimless, empty life does not suggest anything depressing. On the contrary, it suggests the freedom of clouds and mountain streams, wandering nowhere, of flowers in impenetrable canyons, beautiful for no one to see, and of the ocean surf forever washing the sand, no end.”  ~Alan Watts   — Continue reading “Reset”

Telling Our Stories

I’m using myself as example here, but maybe you also have noticed this: Sometimes at night when trying to shut off my mind, it’s hard to know where one intruding thought ends and another begins. I mean they just seem to explode tangentially in first one direction and then another. So as I’m lying thereContinue reading “Telling Our Stories”
