Fear-Busting Rehearsal, by Jaden Phoenix
Author of
Beyond Human: Claiming the Power and Magic of Your Limitless Self

When something frightens us, our body is conditioned to respond with a cascade of responses. We refer to this set of responses as "fight or flight." When visualizing, the physical body does not know the difference between a real or imaginary situation, so it responds as if the situation is real. We can use this tendency to shift our reaction to something that usually causes fear. This is a way for us to face our fear prior to the actual event.

Three Ways to Make the Most of Women's Intuition
By Sherrie Dillard,

For generations the term "women's intuition" has been used to describe the unexplainable, non-logical, sometimes quirky wisdom that women often possess. No one quite knows how or why intuition works. But it does.  Intuition has been defined as simply knowing something without any reasonable and logical way of knowing it. Associated with the right side of the brain, intuition resides in the elusive realm of emotions, creativity and imagination, the domain of the feminine.

Everyday in ways that normally go unnoticed, our intuition is at work. We intuit the unspoken feelings and emotions of our partner, co-workers, children and even the check out girl at the grocery store. We know when a loved one in the other part of the house or even miles away is struggling or having difficulties and we can sense the honesty or dishonesty of our children's excuses and the car mechanic's estimate with surprising ease.  Click HERE to keep reading.

Finding Your Buffalo
By Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche

There is a story about a farmer who owns a buffalo. Not knowing that the buffalo is in its stable, the farmer goes off to search for it, thinking it has strayed from home. Starting off on his search, he sees many different buffalo footprints outside his yard. The footprints of buffalo are everywhere! The farmer then thinks, "Which way did my buffalo go?" He decides to follow one set of tracks and they lead him up into the high mountains, but he doesn't find his buffalo there. Then he follows another set of footprints that lead way down to the ocean. However, when he reaches the ocean, he still doesn't find his buffalo. His buffalo is not in the mountains or at the beach. Why? Because it is back home in the stable in his yard.

Rebel Buddha Rebel Buddha: On The Road to Freedom
By Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche

Rebel Buddha is an exploration of what it means to be free and how it is that we can become free. Although we may vote for the head of our government, marry for love, and worship the divine or mundane powers of our choice, most of us don't really feel free in our day-to-day lives. When we talk about freedom, we're also talking about its opposite -- bondage, lack of independence, being subject to the control of something or someone outside ourselves. No one likes it, and when we find ourselves in that situation, we quickly start trying to figure out a way around it. Any restriction on our "life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness" arouses fierce resistance. When our happiness and freedom are at stake, we become capable of transforming ourselves into rebels.

How Your Soul's Plan was Born
by Robert Schwartz

    May 7, 2003.  I remember that day well, because it was the day on which my life changed, the day that launched me on the path to writing the book Your Soul’s Plan: Discovering the Real Meaning of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born.

     I was 40 at the time, working as a self-employed marketing and communications consultant and feeling profoundly unfulfilled with my life.  I often had the feeling that if I were to fall off the face of the Earth, none of my clients would notice.  They would simply plug someone else into my role and continue along. 
Yet, at the same time I had a feeling that there was a higher purpose to my life.  I just didn’t know what it was.  And so, in my search for that higher calling, I did something on that fateful day in 2003 that I had never done before: I had a session with a psychic medium.  (Click HERE to keep reading.)

Be the Change Can Meditation Transform the World?
By Ed and Deb Shapiro,
Authors of Be the Change: How Meditation Can Transform You and the World

Mahatma Gandhi famously said, "You must be the change you want to see in the world." In other words, change has to start within ourselves; we cannot expect the world to change if we do not. If we want to have more love in our lives, we must become more loving; if we genuinely want to end terrorism and to bring real and peaceful change to the world, then we must start by ending the war within ourselves. 

This brings us to the importance of contemplation and meditation.  Meditation gives us the space to see ourselves clearly and objectively, a place from which we can witness our own behavior and reduce the ego's influence.   Click HERE to continue reading.

How to Write a Eulogy
By Roberta Temes Ph.D.,
Author of Solace: Finding Your Way Through Grief and Learning to Live Again

It is an honor to commemorate the life of a person who has recently died.

The eulogy serves many purposes for those in the audience:

    * It fulfills the human need for ceremony to mark an occasion; the death should not go unrecognized.
    * It comforts the listeners to have their feelings put into words.
    * It comforts the listeners to know that the deceased was understood.
    * It provides a cathartic opportunity for the listeners; they can weep with no censure.
    * It is a way to immortalize the deceased; your words will live on.
    * It is an opportunity to educate listeners about some personal traits of the deceased.
    * It is an opportunity to bring some respectful levity to a sad event.

A Time of Great Permission
By Laura Berman Fortgang, Author of Now What: 90 Days to a New Life Direction

Jobs are hard to come by, layoffs have been slower but still prevalent, industries are shrinking and disappearing and all that we have has lost a lot of its value. It's been called a recession, it's teetered on a depression, but what has failed to be mentioned is that it's also a time a time of great permission.

When the rules change and the status quo is gravely interrupted, it is actually a time of great opportunity for those that are not too terrified (or paralyzed) to act on it. If we give ourselves permission to follow our own hearts and inner road maps instead of waiting for a new status quo to take root, we are looking at making new rules and shattering preconceptions about what can and can not be accomplished.  [Click HERE to keep reading.]

On Meaning: The Silver Lining of The Recession
By Laura Berman Fortgang
Author of The Little Book on Meaning: Why We Crave It, How We Create It

Human beings have often engaged in the search for meaning, but today's economic downturn has brought the subject to light in a new way. People are re-evaluating whether their financial power to accumulate possessions and wealth is the only determining factor of their happiness and success. Some are being forced to shrink their activities, their budgets and their ambitions and many report that it is not all bad.  Sure, economic woes are scary and many are frightened of how long they may last, but those that can keep their wits about them are also re-discovering what really matters to them.  Click HERE to continue reading.

Finding Grace
When the Wheels Come Off
By Donna VanLiere
Author of Finding Grace: A True Story About Losing Your Way in Life . . . And Finding It Again

Like me, as a child you probably hoped for a life that would exceed your dreams but as those dreams collapsed along the way you've simply wished for a soft wing of hope but instead have gotten life in a culture of ungrace. That's not a word but it should be.  If you don't know what ungrace is just listen to most people who didn't vote for any sitting president, watch how fast Hollywood turns on a star who no longer sells at the box office or turn on the news anytime during the day. Ungrace pulsates in our workplaces, communities, and in the media and tells us that regardless of what has happened we must do better, look better, and make ourselves better.  Click HERE to continue reading.

The Energy of The Financial Meltdown
By Carole Lynne,
Author of Cosmic Connection: Messages for a Better World

We are in a time of financial crisis.  People are anxious. People are seeking solutions. People are scared. With all of this activity, tremendous bursts of energy are being expended, some positive but mostly negative.  But the energy that we project into the cosmos is not an isolated event. Your energy and my energy either merge or conflict. All of the negative energy that is coming from you and from me and from everyone else from our anxiety, only increases the negative energy in the cosmos and that reduces the likelihood of us finding solutions for a better world.

Right now both positive and negative energies are being sent out. Which energy stream do you want to contribute to?  Click HERE to continue reading.

Heaven, Hell and Happiness
by Emi Kiyosaki and Robert Kiyosaki,
Authors of Rich Brother Rich Sister: Two Different Paths to God, Money and Happiness

Sunday School taught us that heaven was a place in the sky where people sat around, floating on clouds, playing harps. Hell was the flaming center of the earth, where the devil (with horns, a long tail, and carrying a pitchfork) lived, waiting for sinners.

As adults, we do not know if there is a heaven or a hell after death. There are heaven and hell here on earth, and one person's heaven can be another person's hell. A secure job with the government would be our father's heaven, but Robert's hell. Being an entrepreneur is Robert's heaven. For our dad, having to become an entrepreneur at the age of fifty was his hell.

My Father, the Witch Doctor
By Philip Smith,
Author of Walking Through Walls

One day, back in the early 70s, my father suddenly discovered that he had the astonishing ability to talk to the dead and heal the sick (for real!).

By day, he was a successful interior decorator with clients ranging from the Presidents of Cuba and Haiti to assorted mobsters and the illicit rich.  Mom was a brilliant, glamour-rama whose style lit up any room including when she was shaking the dice in some Havana casino.

Overnight, our Miami home became like Lourdes as people arrived with blind babies, in crutches or with bottles of medication only to leave seeing, walking and drug-free.   Click HERE to continue reading.

How to Take Out Your Head Trash

You’re standing on a gold mine. You know that treasure is buried in there somewhere. So you start digging away… with a teaspoon. How long is THAT going to take you?

Many smart, talented, motivated people are digging for gold using a teaspoon. Yet, if they’d look closely, a beautiful new backhoe sits untouched right under their noses.

Understand Why
by Bernie Siegel, MD, author of Buddy's Candle

How do we turn our afflictions into blessings? How do we use them to help us complete ourselves and our work and understand the place for love, tolerance and kindness? Justice and mercy must both be a part of how we treat those who terrorize because when you understand you can forgive and when you can forgive you do not hate and when you do not hate you are capable of loving and love is the most powerful weapon known to man. It is not an accident that we say, kill with kindness, love thine enemies and torment with tenderness.

Excerpt from On My Own:
The Art of Being a Woman Alone
by Florence Falk

The impact of cultural blockage on women's lives cannot be underestimated. For to the degree that we accept -- and abide by -- the rules of socially invasive, and false, doctrine about who we are and who we ought to be, we will continue to suffer from low self-esteem. The formation of self will be drastically, perhaps irrevocably, compromised.   Click HERE to continue reading.

Church of the Dog
Loving the Journey
by Kaya McLaren, author Church of the Dog

I love to paint, to feel the creamy goo under my brush. I spread it out like butter across canvas. I turn the music up loud and almost dance with my brush. I paint about simple things that make me happy, or simple things I find beautiful. Georgia O’Keefe is my hero for that reason-- for taking the simple beauty of a flower and using paint to make it obvious to even the busiest and most distracted person, for using paint to help everyone see the beautiful colors of dirt. I love how paint allows the painter to editorialize her perception.  Click HERE for Kaya's entire essay.

Excerpt from The First 30 Days
by Ariane de Bonvoisin

When we make a change in our lives -- going back to school, starting a business, pursuing a creative path -- we also provoke an identity shift. And even though the changes are external, often it's more of an internal journey that we are being asked to take. To ensure that we don't get lost along the way, we need to connect with the core of our being, the essence of who we are.  Click HERE to continue reading.

I Will Not Be Broken
Excerpt from I Will Not Be Broken
by Jerry White

There is much at stake. Embracing the patterns of victimhood has cost the human race a great deal. Headlines of terrorism, violence, and disaster assault us with increasing frequency. And the mass of victims grows daily. Individuals blame one another. Communities put up walls. Nations blame nations. How can we turn the victim tide, reaching out to the growing number of hurting individuals, providing the hope and support they need to transform into survivors who seek to fulfill their potential, who aspire to thrive?  Click HERE to continue reading.

That doesn't mean you don't get frazzled and frustrated. It does mean you can feel even better and more productive by attentively, purposely, and nonjudgmentally staying in the present moment.   Click HERE to keep reading.

A Church of Her Own
Excerpt from the book
A Church of Her Own by Sarah Sentilles

I once heard the rector of my church in Pasadena quote Frederick Buechner's definition of vocation in a sermon. Vocation, Buechner says, is the place where the world's greatest need and a person's greatest joy meet. Although selfless struggle is seductive, doing the work the world needs -- fighting poverty, racism, sexism, imperialism, environmental destruction -- is only half of the equation. The work that is yours must also bring you joy.  Click HERE to keep reading.

The Five Secrets You Must Discover Before You Die
Excerpt from the book
the five secrets you must discover before you die
by John Izzo, Ph.D.

Is your life missing the mark?

As a young man, I attended a Protestant seminary and studied ancient Greek and Hebrew. In the Bible, the word "sin" comes from an ancient Greek word taken from the sport of archery. The word literally means "to miss the mark," as in your arrow missing the target. The greatest sin is to miss the mark of what you intended your life to be.  Click HERE to continue reading.

regrets are best let go

Many people told me that it was important not to focus on regrets or to be too hard on one's self. John, who was almost 94 when I interviewed him, made some wise observations on the subject of regret. He had spent the first 35 years of his adult life working as a journalist with the communist party in Canada . As a very idealistic young man, having from his early teen years been deeply disturbed by the injustice he saw in the world, he decided to devote his life to working for "the Party," which he, like many others at that time, saw as a vehicle to social justice. Over the years, he saw many reasons to doubt the Party's goals and its methods, but he continued to work in it with the hope that it would change.

An excerpt from the book
Speaking of Faith by Krista Tippett

In a small, captivating essay about Genesis, Creation and Fall, Dietrich Bonhoeffer described biblical stories as "ancient, magical pictures that we need alongside modern technical, conceptual pictures if we are to become wise." In England , I began to see in these ancient, magical pictures a response to the deepest real-world confusions of my years in Berlin . I was aching with spiritual and moral questions I could scarcely articulate. I was reading mystical texts and Buddhist texts and they thrilled me. But this Bible on the bookshelf, long unopened, was the foundational text of my spiritual homeland and mother tongue.

How Big is Your God? Do You React or Respond to Life?
by Paul Cotinho, SJ, Author of How Big is Your God?

Emotions are not caused by situations. Emotions are caused by our beliefs about situations, beliefs that color our perception and our understanding of events.  Beliefs cause emotions that trigger behavior. If we feel angry about a situation and react in anger, it is because we have angry beliefs about it. 

So how do we handle stressful situations?  How do we choose to respond under pressure?  Fr. Cotinho discusses how to Pause, Question and then Respond, allowing us to live more freely and in greater harmony with our true identity in every situation.

Please Forgive Me
by Joe Vitale
Excerpted from his book, The Key

If you feel stuck in any area of your life, if you're not attracting the car, house, job, mate, or anything else you really want, it could very well be due to a lack of forgiveness. Maybe you didn't forgive the other person. Maybe you didn't forgive yourself. It doesn't matter. Holding on to past emotions, memories, or stories is guaranteed to tie up your energy and block your ability to attract what you want. What you have to do now is forgive.

I had read so many books about robber barons in history, and about survival of the fittest, that I felt unless I became greedy and cutthroat in business, I'd always fail. However, I refused to become something I didn't like. I refused to become one of "them." So I lived with my pain and resentment.   Of course, the only person this hurt was me.

The Fire and the Rose
The Key to Real Choices, by Bud Harris
Excerpted from his book, The Fire and the Rose

Honestly knowing ourselves is no simple task. To begin with, it means accepting who we are, including what we don't like about ourselves. However, this kind of acceptance isn't real until we've constructed a good idea of who can be at our best and at our worst. Getting to know ourselves also brings the startling realization that while we may think we are adults living a unique life, we are really living scripts written jointly by our society, families, churches, traditions and friends. Experience teaches us that building self-knowledge leads to authentic living, self-love and the awareness that something within us -- whether we prefer to call it our true self, the Self or the Divine -- cares about us and wants to guide our lives toward their highest potentials.

The Path of Unconditional Happiness
By Michael A. Singer
Author of The Untethered Soul

The highest spiritual path is life itself. If you know how to live daily life, it all becomes a liberating experience. But first you have to approach life properly, or it can be very confusing. To begin with, you have to realize that you really only have one choice in this life, and it's not about your career, whom you want to marry, or whether you want to seek God. People tend to burden themselves with so many choices. But, in the end, you can throw it all away and just make one basic, underlying decision: Do you want to be happy, or do you not want to be happy? It's really that simple. Once you make that choice, your path through life becomes totally clear.

Things I Overheard While Talking to Myself
What Was All That About?
By Alan Alda
Actor and author of Things I Overheard While Talking To Myself

[At the end of life], "shouldn’t I have some sense that my life had really counted? I wanted that feeling of satisfaction. What would give it to me?   ... I tried to figure out if I could have that feeling of satisfaction in a lasting way. By now, I had lived through most of the things that are supposed to give our lives meaning: love, art, family, money, fame, political activism, faith, skepticism, curiosity, mindless play, even pure motion -- just keeping busy.  And the list goes on. I wondered if any of these things had given me a sense of meaning that was lasting. All of them have, for a time; but no single one of them has been the solid peg to hang my hope for meaning on. It keeps eluding me."

In our own stories we mark the distinction between looking beautiful and feeling beautiful -- the part of us trapped by our culture and the part of us that knows our own value.

And a Sword Shall Pierce Your Heart
How We Mourn:
Themes, Phases, and a Myth
by Charlotte M. Mathes, LCSW, Ph.D.
Author of And a Sword Shall Pierce Your Heart

Most mothers have never been close to someone who has suffered such a life changing event, and even when they have, they could not have then understood its magnitude. Consequently, women now feel an urgency to find out everything they can about other mothers' reactions. They search relentlessly for information that will help with their immediate pain. Hungry for facts and statistics, they look for books to guide them through grief and find solace in hearing another stricken mother speak of a reaction similar to their own. Because they fear their grief will not abate or that things will only get worse, they search for help that will give hope or enable them to fend off further disaster. They want some predictability restored to their lives. Though nothing takes away their pain, many mothers later point to a bit of useful information or wisdom that made a positive difference.

The Magic of Appreciation
By Lynn Grabhorn
Author of Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting

There are only three states of being we run around in all day long. If we could be even a little more aware of which one we're wearing during each moment of the day, we'd have a big leg up to changing our vibrations

Victim Mode -- Flat-Lining Mode -- Turned On Mode

Victim Mode, Flat-Lining, or Turned On, we will always find ourselves in one of the three. Our goal, of course, is to make it the Turned On Mode as often and as long as we can, which is why we look to the high, high energy of appreciation.

"Head Songs"
(Sheila Martin Berry)
It happens to everybody. You're just going about living, minding your own business, when a song starts running through your head. It's so subtle initially that when you become aware of it, you may wonder how long it has been playing there inside your head. You may wonder where it came from, especially if it's a song you haven't heard since you can't remember when, and even more so if it's a tune you don't particularly care for.  Could there be something more to these "head songs" -- psychic messages, perhaps?

What's the Big Idea or The Long and Winding Road
(Shane Roberts)

Seth, who described himself as "an intelligence residing outside time and space," was channeled by Jane Roberts for over twenty-one years. The Seth material joins mysticism and physics and opens the consciousness to both its source and its destination. Shane Roberts follows the ultimate logic of Seth's teachings, that "there are no limits to the self" and "there are no real separations in the self," leading finally to identification with All That Is, to an understanding of Enlightenment and its meaning in individual experience.

Why do some psyches stay intact in the face of terrible traumas while others shatter in a benign environment into divergent, individualized personalities? Is it possible that some people are simply "born that way?" Could it be the result of spirit attachment or the expression of unintegrated past life personalities? Sheila Berry explores these questions and poses possible answers based on her experiences while sharing her home with a young woman who, in turn, shared her body with 45 other personalities.

Discernment: An Initiation
(S. M. Berry)

How thin is the veil between the third dimension of the material world and the fourth dimension of spirits who have passed to the "interbetween?" Vivid dream visitations from departed loved ones, a song with special meaning to the two of you, the scent of flowers and the feeling that he or she is there, with you - are these imagination, wishful thinking, coincidence, or real? How can you tell the difference? And what do you say to a spirit you don't know who asks you to pass along a message for him? Perhaps Sheila Berry's experiences will help you discern the answers.
