It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.

Let Your “Higher Self ” Be Your Guide

Let Your “Higher Self ” Be Your Guide - Temple Hayes
We’re all here to develop as individualized expressions of God. We gather and commune with others in different ways to remind ourselves of that very nature. We remind each other that we are Divine and that we’re God’s Beloved. And we recognize the crucial nature of being true to ourselves, and of becoming that authentic self.

Spread Your Wings And Fly!

Spread your wings and fly! - Panache Desai

Are you now at a point where you have broken free of the prison of the personality? If so, you are swimming in this ocean of potential and possibilities and from this place the highest manifestation of your life. 

I don’t know about you, but I’ve heard spiritual prophecy in my life and I believe we are actually alive at that pinnacle point of prophecy, that time on the planet where individuals like you and I, will once again return to our natural state of being. And in doing so, we shift the course of our collective history as a planet.

Ultimate Guide To Guided Meditation For Beginners!

A regular meditation practice boasts seemingly endless benefits. It reduces stress, helps us stay balanced and grounded through life’s ups and downs, and is even associated with better health outcomes.

Breathing Lessons

Breathing Lessons

If God resides within the breath, what does it mean when you are “short of breath,” with inflammation in the lungs? That was my status, post chemo—another one of the side effects, which it takes 4–6 weeks to resolve. Meanwhile, my breathing was slower, my walking slower, everything slower. Was this God’s way of getting me to slow down (even though my life is not fast-paced)? Perhaps, the message here is “press the pause button on everything and just be in the stillness of the breath, in which God is ever-present.” Nothing is more important. “You’ve dropped all the pieces of your identity; now just rest in the absence of identification, the presence of divinity.” This is what I am hearing, what I am receiving. Another gift of this experience. Because when you find yourself struggling to breathe (as I did one night recently), you are awakened to the slender thread that holds you to life: one single breath at a time is your lifeline to aliveness. And to God.

The Enlightened Rebel: BUMPER STICKER TRUTHS

temple1.9
This story changed my life and I trust it will offer some insight for you as well. It calls us to a greater purpose as an Enlightened Rebel.


A lady was driving down main street, rushing because she was having a very busy day. She was coming upon a traffic light which was turning yellow and when the guy in front of her slammed on his brakes, she was furious. She blew her horn a few times, did some obscene sign language out the window, and acted extremely rageful. By this time a police officer saw what was going on, pulled up behind her, and ultimately pulled her over and took her to jail. In a couple of hours, he came to her jail cell and told her she was free to leave. She said, “I appreciate it, sir, however I still don’t know what I did wrong.” He said “Well, you have to see the experience from my point of view. On the back of your car, you have all these bumper stickers like ‘Let there be peace of earth’, ‘Global oneness’, ‘Love the world’, ‘Mom’s club against anger’ and I assumed whoever was driving could not be the cars’ owner but a thief who was driving a stolen car.”

Your Never Ending Truth

pdblog1.6

Even though presence is becoming an experience and reality for so many people, there are still many points of resistance or rejection.

Another entry point into the truth is that the absolute nature of reality, meaning the total truth about life, is that you are an infinite presence. You are infinite energy.  Even though this is the truth, the never ending truth or foundation of who you are, many of you are resisting it. 

Here is the main point of resistance you may be experiencing:

The Enlightened Rebel: ACTION WHEN IT MATTERS

temple1.2.22
Through the years, when someone asked me if I was a person of violence, I would be very quick to say ”no.”


I had only hit one boy when I was in elementary school and it startled both of us so much that we both remember it to this day! I have come to understand through the teachings of Gandhi and his grandson Arun that so much of our violence is passive. It’s the way we are unwilling to speak when we see something absolutely wrong or not in alignment with our values.

It’s when we get angry about a situation and we allow it to take us to the level of the violence, rather than approaching our anger as an Enlightened Rebel. Anger is good medicine. When used as a spiritual human practice, you learn to transcend the emotion
to a place of proactive action. That is when you have discovered the mystery of what life is longing for.

Body and Soul

peggy12.31

The body sometimes assists the soul’s journey with quite dramatic insistence. After I completed a third chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer, my body let my doctors know very clearly that it had reached its limit. I had allergic reactions in the form of an inflamed rash/bumps all over my body, edema (fluid retention), and breakthrough bleeding beneath the skin (to name just a few). Treatment 4 was cancelled. This particular segment of my spiritual “firewalk” was complete.  My body is now being given time to reestablish equilibrium and prepare for radiation in a few weeks.

Importance Of Community As The Year Comes To A Close!

colettw12.28

Community is one of the most valuable aspects of a full, spiritual life. The people we surround ourselves with can support us in our growth and transformation and can help us live as our highest selves. 

As the year comes to a close, it’s a great time to reflect on your relationship to community. Do you have a community you can lean into during this time, or is it a time for you to prioritize making and nurturing new connections?

Find Stillness

rhanson12.24

What doesn’t change?

The Practice:
Find stillness.

Why?

Things keep changing. The clock ticks, the day unfolds, trees grow, leaves turn brown, hair turns gray, children grow up and leave home, attention skitters from this to that, the cookie is delicious but then it’s all gone, you’re mad about something for a while and then get over it, consciousness streams on and on and on.

Many changes are certainly good. Most people are glad to put middle school behind them. I’m still happy about shifting thirty years ago from single to married. Painkillers, flush toilets, and the internet seem like pretty good ideas. It’s lovely to watch grass waving in the wind or a river passing. Fundamentally, if there were no change, nothing could happen, reality would be frozen forever. I once asked my friend Tom what he thought God was and he said “possibility.”

The Secret of Life

peggy12.24

Every time you inhale and exhale, you are breathing the spirit of life, which is God. That’s the secret: The breath is God. In many languages, the word for spirit is the same as for breath. We hold this wisdom within the depths of our souls because it is what we are made of. Yes, we are human, but our humanity is composed of divine spirit. Your physical form is a sacred temple within which God experiences life on Earth. When you breathe, God is breathing. When you look through your eyes, God is seeing. When you look in another’s eyes, you are both gazing into pools of divinity. The only problem is that we have forgotten. We think that breathing is merely a physical phenomenon that arrives and departs with birth and death.

Enter the Peaceable Kingdom of Now

guy12.22

Either we are at peace wherever we are -- because this peace goes with us -- or what we call our peace is a product of some pleasurable condition over which we have tem­porary command. In situations like the latter, though largely uncon­scious to us, we sense that our peace is conditional. We know that we must work to keep certain prevailing conditions in place in order to remain at peace. And this, of course, means that we will resist any movement that threatens our desired estate. Clearly such a ten­tative peace is not true peace at all, because it dwells side by side, in league with an unseen conflict that is a basic requirement of its very existence!

The Enlightened Rebel: FROM ANGER TO ACTION

temple12.19.21
In 2007, I attended a weekend retreat at Omega Institute with six Nobel Peace Laureates.

During this retreat, the 800+ people in attendance were updated about various situations that were currently occurring in the world. I listened to Nobel Laureates’ stories and felt their experiences and pain, as some described how they had risked their lives for the greater good of humanity.

At first, I questioned if I, Temple Hayes, was even making any difference at all for humanity. As I listened and processed what was shared, I became angry about our cultural values that condone greed and need. However, when I reflected and allowed myself to look at these talks from an Enlightened Rebel perspective, I began to see a common thread. I realized the “missing” within our society today is we have become desensitized to Life Rights. We are forgetting to teach our children the value of life in all living things. We need to engage ourselves in teaching our children the value of nature and life. We have policies that dominate over principles. We are bombarded with similar and repeated events in the news media that can leave even the most Enlightened Rebel feeling powerless, overwhelmed, and apathetic.

An Exploration of The Ten Illusions of Humans

NeilDW12.17

Everything can truly be on earth as it is in heaven, when the time of separation is over and the time of unification is at hand. Unification with God, unification with all others, and with every living thing. This is what God has come to tell us once more through the messengers of today. You will know them as God’s messengers because they will all be bringing the same message: We Are All One. This is the only message that matters. The fact that you have so far failed to receive it (you have heard it often, but you have failed to receive it) is what has caused every misery, every sorrow, every conflict, every heartache in your experience. It has caused every murder, every war, every rape and robbery, every assault and attack, mental, verbal, and physical. It has caused every illness and dis-ease, and every encounter with what you call death. The idea that we are not One is an illusion.

The human race has been living with illusions for a long time. This is not because the human race is stupid, but because the human race is very smart. Humans have understood intuitively that illusions have a purpose, and a very important one. Most humans have simply forgotten that they know this. And they have forgotten that their forgetting is itself part of what they have forgotten – and therefore part of the illusion. Now it is time for humans to remember.

How to Bridge the Light and the Dark

drsue12.17

The Solstice is an especially opportune time for us to begin to recognize that we are the light. We are that which is revealing.

Life is not about seeking, it's about revealing. What is here for us to reveal is pocketed away in the darkness, which is the space where we come into contact with the rest of who we are.

We're here to bridge the languages of the light and the dark so that we bridge the worlds of the known and the unknown.

As we step into the wholeness of our being we no longer hold those worlds of light and dark as separate from each other. When we steward our creativity, an aspect of us beyond the logical, thinking mind, we allow the miraculous to occur with every breath, and step, that we take.

You recognize that you can't do it wrong, you can only take longer to consciously reveal the Essential Self. As you learn to trust the Self, you begin to step into your creative essence and live as you are intended to live – as Creator.

This is our time to shine. It is your moment to come forth as the light that you are and weave it into the canvas that is your life.

Cord Cutting Ritual To Reclaim Your Energy!

colette12.14

Some experiences and moments in our lives seem to just stick to us like dirty gum on the bottom of our shoe. 

If you’ve ever had an ex you just couldn’t get over, a fight you couldn’t get out of your head, or an experience or resentment that has stayed with you for years, you know what I mean. 

Sometimes we become energetically tied to another person or a situation from our past, and we have to find a way to reclaim our energy and regain our sense of sovereignty. A cord cutting ritual is the perfect way to do just that. 

When you know you’re ready to release, but the old pain, old thoughts, or old patterns keep haunting your mind, and still feel real in your body, these rituals can offer you some freedom. They will help you bring your energy back to yourself and finally move on for good. 

Why we get stuck with old memories or resentments 

It’s natural that certain experiences or people stick with us and are hard to shake. Some relationships transform us and make us who we are, certain memories mark pivotal moments, and some experiences become part of the way we define ourselves.

See It! Believe It! Become It!

johnH12.13

Is there really such a thing as good luck? Why do some people have all the good fortune, while others seem to miss it? Is there some sort of secret formula for drawing luck into your life?

Let me set you straight! There’s a force that works through your soul determining what’s possible or impossible, showing you the difference between success and failure and above all, helping you discover who you are. This force has no limits to what it can do for you—it’s the power of your belief.

Enlightened Rebel: THE POWER OF TRUST

temple12.13
I remember calling my father many years ago and asking him about the time change (Daylight Savings Time).
I wasn’t sure whether I needed to set my clock forward an hour or back an hour. After he so confidently gave me his answer, I questioned him, “Are you sure?” Being the subtle character that he was, my dad said to me, “Why did you call me if you did not plan to believe the answer I gave to you?” This experience has stayed with me most of my adult life, for I reflect about it
in a deeper way now. He was right, of course. Why would I call upon him if I did not have faith and trust in his answer? From various experiences with him in my youth, my father had rarely witnessed my total trust in him. I had seen him respond to so many events in such a reactive and insane way that I could never completely relax, let go, or be myself around him.

Precious Moments

peggy12.11

Whatever your current age or state of health, you have probably experienced moments when life feels exceedingly ephemeral, as if it could disappear in a split second. This is raw truth. We are here on Earth as human beings for a tiny moment in eternity, yet time itself is always relative—sometimes racing and sometimes “stopped.” As our lives move forward and evolve, we experience the various aspects of life and living and come to know both impermanence and loss. In doing so, our hearts may break, yet we grow wiser. And we begin to see beyond time to eternity itself.

Embrace With Love The Symphony of Your Emotions During This Holy Days Season

drsue12.11

What if you were to allow your emotions to become devotion, instead of being suppressed?

When the thinking mind is overworking, we have a tendency to generate a life of rigidity and fixed emotions. Our actions in the world become mentally driven, and we lose touch with the essence of what matters most in life.

We are in the midst of the Holy Days, a time of year when light is more easily accessible and, no matter our specific circumstances, we are each gifted with this light. We get to choose to receive this delight, joy, love, and presence that is so available to us now. 

Joy is present as we embrace all emotions – even the ones we don’t typically like to feel – because they are an attempt to ground the Self. All emotions are expressions of love trying to organize into a system of flow. Each is equal and necessary for your wholeness to land here, in a body.

Through the power of free-will choice, forgiveness, and our creative capacity, we each have the ability to take any energy – maybe you're experiencing life circumstances that feel black and white, rigid, or dull – and open into a full-color life experience.
