Don’t Flood Others With Your Stormy Weather

Don’t Flood Others With Your Stormy Weather

Everyone has off days for one reason or another.  Whether it is a lack of sleep or hormones, we all have days of discomfort, short-temperedness, or general unhappiness.  In order to take full responsibility for the energy we put into the world, a crucial choice surfaces.  We can scowl, project, and punish the innocent bystanders for our pain.  Or, we can be fully present in each moment to ensure...

Toxic Amnesia Distorts Reality

Toxic Amnesia Distorts Reality

The snarl on her face accentuated the deep bark of her punishing voice.  As she entered the room with her family, a cloud of negative energy enveloped her as she lashed out for no apparent reason.  These actions doused the room with her fiery rage.  Her words whipped the unsuspecting who felt their sense of peace immediately evaporate.  And, the happiness felt before her entrance vanished...

Genuine Joy Requires Deep Excavation

Genuine Joy Requires Deep Excavation

Inspired by the quotes, memes, and posts of our peers, educators swam to the harrowing deep end of the ocean and back to the shore.  As we finished the school year in 2021 with one final stroke, a deep, soulful exhale floated out of our listless bodies into the thick, summer air.  Although the heat blazed upon our shoulders as we start to climb out of the shallow end, we slowly found the edge...

Letting Go Creates A Flow

Letting Go Creates A Flow

At times, life appear effortless and easy flowing like beautiful white-capped billows of water dancing down a rugged mountainside.  In these moments, a sigh floats into the air and dissipates in joy.  But when the flow ebbs, iron fists forward push with all of their might to move things along.  Yet, the harder the push; the more resistance comes into our pathway.  If we unclench our grasp,...

Nourish Your Soul To Flourish In Life

Intuitively, we feel a magnetic pull to the outdoors. It is as if our heart tugs us into the open air in order to take a breath from pace of life. When in nature, putting down the burdens you carry occurs in a natural way.  Without thinking, you relax into the lushness of the flora and restore through soothing of the waters.  Yet, as hustle and bustle replace rest and relax in our hectic...

Being Imperfect Is Perfect

How many times have you scrutinized your decisions and wished you made another choice?  When you have an unfavorable outcome to your selection, reevaluation feels appropriate.  Yet, as you examine yesterday’s thought process with today’s mindset, you devalue the importance of appreciating where you were.  Looking back on yesterday’s choices with today’s presence proves to be futile. In...

Discernment as a Guiding Force

Discernment as a Guiding Force

One commonly used Jungian phrase in spiritual circles, “what you resist persists,” describes the phenomenon of avoidance, usually in facing an uncomfortable situation. In many contexts, the idiom captures the essence of allowing fear of change or discomfort to influence your decisions.  Yet, in some cases, tapping into your intuition reveals that making a choice may be detrimental to your...

Finding Comfort in Discomfort

Finding Comfort in Discomfort

Everyone experiences tragedy, disappointment, and misfortune at some juncture in their lives.  Yet, the how, when, who, and what of these events varies depending on the individual’s familial background, soul journey, and ancestral lineage.  While some people experience hardships from birth, others may be relatively unscathed from external events as children and adolescents. Subsequently,...

Hope is All We Have

Hope is All We Have

Disappointment over time creates limits on what we believe we can create in our lives.  To compound the situation, social media depictions of others’ fortunes can lead to a focus on lack.  What is not happening for you but is happening for others directs your attention to what is not there. Staying in that space only generates more of what you don’t want (lack). Rather, focusing on what you have...
