The Liberation in Epigenetics

I don't buy that we are a slave to our genes. While we may not be able to change our eye color, we are able to re-write our genetic predispositoins to physical maladies. It is much easier for us to deal with physical illness than to deal with the emotions they might mask so this... Continue Reading →

​ Demystifying the emotion-body connection

I think both lifestyle and trauma both contribute to physical maladies. When we are traumatized (this includes even medical procedures and surgeries) as children, we cannot deal with that level of physical or emotional pain so we split off and detach from it to survive and the unresolved unprocessed trauma along with the associated grief...

There Is No Magic Button

The age old positivity movement is about magic buttons. There's the... Let it go button. The Just be happy button. The Don't worry button. The Forgive button. The be grateful button. The Calm down button. The Love yourself button. The Think positively button. The Quiet your mind button. The Get over it button. The Move... Continue Reading →

The “They Are Imperfect Humans” Excuse

​"They are only human" "Nobody's perfect" ...in defense of child molesters and those ​complicit? OK. Fair enough. I really do think it is important to see we are all imperfect humans who make mistakes. But if they are mistakes, then we need to own them by resisting the temptation to justify them and apologize by... Continue Reading →

Mental Illness and Spirituality

Those who understand higher spiritual truths will often be cast as mentally ill to the spiritually materialistic. The truth is that there is a world greater than we can imagine or comprehend that goes way beyond the physical. We all have some level of spiritual insight and experiences, we just doubt them as we have... Continue Reading →

Demystifying Psychic Awareness of Others

Reading people is normal. Maybe not common, but normal. We are all hardwired from birth to see people beneath their mask and into their subconscious mind. Babies do this. Children are wildly aware of everything. It is not woo to see the depths of people with clarity. We are all connected in spirit; this is... Continue Reading →

Women on Women Sexism

I think the worst sexism doesn't come from men, but from other women. I see women tearing other women down all the time. Women who post selfies, for starters.... So many women feel uncomfortable when other women post their selfies often. The prettier, the more self-assured and the happier these women appear to be, the... Continue Reading →

Is it impossible to heal completely?

Today, I challenge the notion that we can never heal completely. I think it really depends on if we are talking about getting it all done in this lifetime or at all in terms of eternity. My opinions are based on the belief that our souls are eternal and that reincarnation is real. From the... Continue Reading →

What Are My Dreams About?

I think your dreams stem from the subconscious aspect of yourself that exist to help you become more aware of the issues that you need to work on. Dreams, if we pay attention, help us become self-aware and more in tune with how we feel inside the deeper aspects of ourselves. Dreams show us what... Continue Reading →

The Problem with Gratitude

Gratefulness can be another spiritual bypass trap. I think gratefulness IS a divine virtue, but like forgiveness, it's got to be authentic. I can sit around here and tell you all what I am grateful about, but unless I really mean it and unless I am TRULY embodying it through my own ACTIONS, it's just... Continue Reading →

Addressing Ego-bashing

The more we bash the ego as bad, the more time it might take to heal and disidentify with it. The ego is not wrong. It's our inner child. It came to life to hold on to our traumas so that we could function in the world. The only reason you're still breathing now is... Continue Reading →

On Being Seduced by Power

We all say we love authenticity, but then we celebrate, applaud and may even get turned on when other's authenticity and free expression is shut down and censored by banhammer mentalities. Authority is SEXY. Power is SEXY. Iron Fist Rule is SEDUCTIVE. I sit back and observe this human phenomenon and other's seduction to tyrannical... Continue Reading →

Double Standards and Authority Worship

Outside the universal problems and implications of authority worship I have is that so long as one is in a position of popularity, status, hero-ship or authority, they can have all the boundaries they want, all the discernment they want, and all the quirks they have. They are allowed to have flaws. In fact, their... Continue Reading →

Our Inner Guidance System

Did you know that we are all born with a built-in inner-guidance system? The only reason we might not realize it's there is because we have been programmed to blindly submit to authority. Authority worship was taught in school and at home from when we were impressionable little people. Now as adults, we don't know... Continue Reading →

Oh no! I’m not angry.

​ I've seen this all my life. Something unfortunate happens and this person is angry. I'll say "I understand; it's OK to be angry" and they'll respond saying "I'm not angry" or something to that tune when clearly they are angry. They are obsessing over the event and continue to rant about it or project... Continue Reading →

Anger

I often feel shame after using my voice firmly. ​I was raised to be a "nice girl" (polite, lady-like, quiet, docile, and people-pleasing). Many of us women were raised this way, yes? When I express my voice firmly, ​I always feel like I have done something terribly wrong. The shame is crippling. People don't even... Continue Reading →
