This Aperture’s View Today

While this is not what I had intended to write about today, it must be what is internally pushing hardest to appear here now, so there you go. Similar to Popeye’s favorite slogan, “I writes what I writes.”  It’s like that Alan Watts quote, whatever has the strongest desire to transmit at the time throughContinue reading “This Aperture’s View Today”

Defining Your Identity

“Who ARE you?”   Can you truthfully answer that above question? I’ve identified myself so many different ways during all the phases of my life that I’m not sure how I would have answered that question during each of those growth phases, because to me IDENTITY has more to do with how we think ofContinue reading “Defining Your Identity”

The Things We Tell Ourselves

“Every fragment of self-talk is a little story in the head that goes around, and then you look at reality through the lens of the little story.”  Eckhart Tolle I didn’t title this “The LIES We Tell Ourselves” because sometimes those replaying thought-monologs aren’t really ‘lies,’ but are more likely residues of our optimistic ‘wishfulContinue reading “The Things We Tell Ourselves”

Transformation

To describe ‘transformation’ is like asking a butterfly to write an autobiography tracing its journey from egg larva to crawling caterpillar to the colorful ‘winged-goddess-in-perpetual-motion’ of today. THAT complete structural metamorphosis epitomizes ‘transformation’ in so many ways—biochemically, physically, and behaviorally; because the living being that it once was is suddenly no more, and what itContinue reading “Transformation”

Self-help Techniques for Healing PTSD and General Life Trauma

After rereading the previous posting I thought it might be helpful to mention again the techniques that I’m most familiar with to help deal with our own PTSD and lingering emotional trauma energies that we can’t seem to move past. In no way do I dismiss anyone’s emotional/psychological trauma residues. I’ve dealt with plenty ofContinue reading “Self-help Techniques for Healing PTSD and General Life Trauma”

Woundedness

Yes, “wounds”—we all have them—physical, mental, emotional, and even spiritual. We all have felt the sting of rejection or humiliation in our lives, or we still have unresolved issues that stem from previous childhood or relationship traumas.  That inner wounding aspect is simply an unpleasant but necessary part of this experience called LIFE.   IfContinue reading “Woundedness”

The Jungian Online Conference 2021

Hm-m-m, maybe I am more Jungian than I realized. I’m currently listening to James Hollis, Ph.D., and he is already talking about most of what I write in this blog…about Finding Your Truth: determining who we are, what we stand for, and WHY we believe that we are here at this time, and how weContinue reading “The Jungian Online Conference 2021”

On Personal Change Before World Change

Mystic Path to Cosmic Consciousness “Changing the world begins with the very personal process of changing ourself, the only place you can begin is where you are, and the only time you can begin is now.” – Gary Zukav WOW, …seeing the Gary Zukav name sent me back to my earliest period of externally expressingContinue reading “On Personal Change Before World Change”

Examining the Roles That We Play

Eckhart Tolle “Authentic human interactions become impossible when you lose yourself in a role.” – Eckhart Tolle Over the course of our lives we learn many informative techniques to advance our personal lives in one direction or another. We may even choose a role in life often associated with our strong need for personal satisfactionContinue reading “Examining the Roles That We Play”

The End of Victimization

I was listening this morning to a free promo video on Caroline Myss’ “The Mystical Truths Behind Radical Change”.  Pretty sure she has an entire course on the subject (“The Great Transformation”), and I can offer you the Myss promo to view to decide if you might want to learn more:  https://product.soundstrue.com/the-great-transformation/free-video/ It seems toContinue reading “The End of Victimization”

An Encounter with Reality

So what is ‘reality’ saying to you today? To me reality is saying ‘spring is finally here and new life is popping up everywhere.’ But if I were in deep meditation, that ‘reality’ might appear quite differently. This is one of the hardest concepts to consider: that what you perceive to be REALITY is simplyContinue reading “An Encounter with Reality”

The Body’s Many Systems

It is SO hard to find ONE picture that covers such an extensive subject as the body’s systems of operation, so this will have to suffice at present. At first I was only going to describe the Endocrine System and how that related to ‘energy work’ (like REIKI) in general; and then the more IContinue reading “The Body’s Many Systems”
