So maybe you already understand the Law of Attraction, and maybe you already do a lot of intentional positive thinking. You’ve probably seen a lot of benefits from it, but maybe you still have a bad day here and there. Maybe you’ve wondered “why do positive people still have bad days?“
The truth is, being positive is a relative concept. Even with focus and practice, our vibes still fluctuate. Regardless of our intention or effort, even the most skilled positive thinkers can have a few shaky moments here and there, and that’s ok! Continue reading It’s OK. Positive People Still Have Bad Days Too!

A few years ago, one of my teachers taught me a powerful breathing exercise that I’d like to share with you today.
Variations of this technique have been used for millennia to induce altered states of consciousness and connect more deeply with the divine. On the surface, it’s hard to fathom how breathing alone can take us to such great heights. I had doubts myself – until I gave it a try. As it turns out, I hadn’t given my lungs enough credit – the experience was cathartic in ways that defy description. Continue reading A Breathing Exercise to Take You Higher

IN BRIEF: The difference between maintaining your zeal for life and heartbreaking disillusionment during turbulent times ultimately begins with you and where you are placing your focus. Here are seven proactive life responses for the most common reasons why you might feel your passion for life slipping away.
Thanks to social media, you’ve survived the “me” generation. “Me” exploded into “we” and a socially conscious generation was born. What was once considered personal fulfillment has changed for the better. Continue reading 7 Ways to Revitalize Your Passion for Life in Turbulent Times

Good things do not come easy. Often the most difficult challenges in life provide the most successful results. The value of achievement is not qualified just by the end result but by the effort made to get to the finish.
If you are feeling defeated today, remember that by doing nothing, you get nothing in return. Stay focused, don’t give up and know that life is moving in the right direction.

Have you ever felt like you get in your own way? That, when working toward your goals, your path always follows the frustrating sequence of one step forward, two steps back?
We all get in our own way at times, particularly when it comes to the areas in life that we struggle with the most. Getting in your own way can make it difficult to take the actions that will improve your situation.
For example, if you struggle with your weight, you likely get in your own way by not exercising regularly or eating well. If saving money is the problem, you likely have adopted a mindset that isn’t conducive to creating long term wealth. Continue reading 5 Steps To Getting Out Of Your Own Way

Voted one of the happiest countries in the world for over 40 years straight, many have wondered how Denmark — a place with depressing weather, a soaring divorce rate and astronomical taxes — could possibly be to home to such happy people. The answer lies in high levels of trust, a vast social safety net, work-life balance, as well as a distinct way of parenting and overall positive approach to life. But one aspect is especially important for cultivating such contented people — in short, the Danish art of hygge. Continue reading The Pursuit of Everyday Happiness and The Danish Art of Hygge

I wrote the following for the 257th issue of the Weekly Awareness Guide, a written document distributed weekly via email that I offer for $11.11 a month.
Income from the guide helps me get by and ensures I can continue to offer free content, and every subscription is appreciated. The option to subscribe is given at the bottom of this post (learn about subscribing with cash/check here).
Do you know who you are or the incredible power you possess? Are you aware of the magnificence of the place you came from or the evolutionary process that will eventually return you there?
For the most part, I’m not. I like to write about it and encourage others to be open to it, but I have yet to glimpse it in a real or meaningful way. Nor should I yet, because the point of being here is to gradually rediscover the truth of who we are and how we can help this world before returning to that heavenly place we dropped down from to be of service.

Dr. Hester O Connor, clinical psychologist, shares her experience as a Mindfulness teacher and a Heartfulness practitioner.
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.’’
– Helen Keller
On the 30th of April 2016 I will celebrate twenty-one years of Heartfulness meditation. I trained as a Mindfulness teacher in the beautiful valley of Triginos in Wales in 2008. For me the Mindfulness practice of being present moment by moment softens me and takes me to my heart. Heartfulness satisfies the longing of my heart. I would like to share with you the love story of my route to Heartfulness. For it is a love story. Every day I get up to re-orient my inner compass to a heart-centered goal that started out long ago when I was a small child in a village near Cashel in County Tipperary, Ireland. Continue reading Heartfulness & Mindfulness: A Personal Reflection
When I think about women and Buddhism, the first thing that always comes to mind is the story of Tara’s vow. This story expresses our situation so very clearly and applies equally well to both ancient and modern times. It is a story that originated when Mahayana was integrating with tantra, ultimately forming what became Vajrayana in India. It is emblematic of a wave of stories that followed about powerful women who valued themselves as women within Buddhism.
Many of the stories from that era in India (around 700–800 CE) tell us what was happening both sociologically in the culture, and developmentally in Vajrayana. During this period, for the first time, Buddhism had women teaching men. It was also the dawn of female Buddhas and the feminine wisdom principle, which began with Prajnaparamita, the ‘Mother of All the Buddhas,’ in the Mahayana period.

In a world that has lost touch with its soul, the indigo child is here as a light-bearer, path forger, and paradigm shifter.
Although the concept of indigo children originated in the 1970’s, there have been groups of individuals all through the ages whose mission and purpose have been to awaken humanity.
If you’re an old soul who feels a strong and profound urge to create change in society, you are likely an indigo child. Continue reading Are You An Indigo Child? These 17 Signs Will Reveal The Truth
