How to Start “Thinking” With the Heart

By Johanna Bassols, The Mind Unleashed

For far too long, but particularly in the modern, Western world we have thought of the heart as simply a pumping mechanism responsible for bringing blood to our organs.

The heart’s physical importance not to be underestimated, it supports life, sending the blood of life to the tree-like limbs of our vascular system – but this is an overly simplistic view of what the heart is capable of.

Gregg Braden’s latest research elaborates on the ancient technique of using the heart as an intelligent organ. Continue reading How to Start “Thinking” With the Heart

Glass Ceilings that Hinder Evolution

By Samiksa Love, In5D.com

Are you hindering your own spiritual evolution unconsciously with invisible chains? If so, you are gloriously human!

For so many of us on the spiritual path, while we seem to be from time to time facing obstacles “out there” in the external reality, the most pervasive limitations have mostly been laid down by ourselves through our lifelong conditioned beliefs and our daily habits.

Patterns of Resistance

By Steve Beckow, Golden Age of Gaia


Kathleen is coaching me on getting deeper into the practice and wisdom of forgiveness.

I was meditating on what prevents me from forgiving when I suddenly had a thought that left me feeling self-righteous. That led off into interesting paths of inquiry.

I used Kathleen’s technique of turnaround and imagined I heard a mother say, “How would you like it if he treated you that way?” (1) Continue reading Patterns of Resistance

Portable Spiritual Practice

I’ve always wanted my spiritual sadhana or practice to be portable. So that I can practice wherever I find myself.

So I don’t want to carry a load of books around with me or a directory tree full of information in my laptop or in my brain. I want the whole matter to be simple and manageable. Continue reading Portable Spiritual Practice

Placing Letters Together To Make Words

By Will Harader, Galactic Free Press

Sometime I would just like to be “done”, “finished” with all this 3d illusion. Then I wonder what illusion I am in? There is no “done” ever. The universe is always creating brilliance by taking a whole lot of small things and putting them together to make much bigger things until the bigger things start to glow. Then, I wonder why I would ever want to let go of this kind of magic. lol

I wonder why I ever give any energy to anything unreal? I am just a whole bunch of small things brought together to make a big thing which glows. The glow is the brilliance of the universe, within me. Could be the glow is just a feeling of awareness of the Life of creation and I feel that. lol Continue reading Placing Letters Together To Make Words

The Company of Heaven repeats certain themes over and over.

Gosh, it seems to take me that long to see some of them – I mean, to get them not just intellectually but experientially?

Two questions the Company of Heaven asks I’m just starting to get. (1) Is it of balance? (2) Is it of love?

The two questions function in different realms. Continue reading Meet You at the Intersection of Balance and Love

By Steve Beckow, Golden Age of Gaia

If what I’m writing is an Ascension ethnography – a day-by-day account of some of the more significant events that are part of our gradual Ascension – then I need to give more prominence to what happened yesterday. (1)

Yesterday, I moved, as a result of minor realizations or “Aha’s!”, from what I’d call negative territory to positive. Continue reading Bookmarking a Significant Passage

Accessing Your Higher Mind

By John Holland, OM Times, Thanks to Body Mind Soul Spirit

The more we stay connected to our higher mind – which we also call the universe, the source, or spirit – the more we strengthen and build that crucial bridge between ourselves and our higher consciousness. While we are all born connected to this divine awareness, we have a tendency to pull away from what was once natural. It’s reasonable to assume that when we become disconnected from our higher mind, the source that once nourished us will be replaced with another source or substitute.

In other words, the connection could be with food, alcohol, nicotine, co-dependency to someone or even work – hence the term workaholic. Many of us spend our lives trying to fill that void which was created when the link was broken. Continue reading Accessing Your Higher Mind
