Let the Light of Awareness Transform Your Life

guy11.2

We are born hungry. We not only require food that we take in with our mouths, but we all have an innate need to take in impressions -- to take in the nourishment that stimulates our mind, that moves our heart, and that works to give us a sense of satisfaction in life.

When we’re young, we have a natural appetite for life, and we are educated by going out and engaging in the world. We meet other human beings, we find lovers, we find ways to make a living that will hopefully satisfy and stimulate us.

Then, as we grow older, our appetite becomes more and more refined, and we find we can no longer be satisfied by the life that we see around us. We realize that another relationship, more money, more food, more travel, isn’t going to fix things. It eventually dawns on us we can’t give ourselves what we’re hungry for through the things that we see in the world.

Quiet Genius: BEYOND THE SURFACE

templeh10.30
Within all appearances of plain and ordinary there is tremendous potential.


Ernest Holmes would go to the drugstore each day for a snack. One day, he saw a drunk man and offered to buy him a cup of coffee. The man accepted. As Ernest spoke with him while he was sobering up over his cup of coffee, he discovered that the man was a sign painter. Ernest asked the manager of the store for some paper and some markers and asked the man to paint some signs with letters and numbers. The store manager who was watching this stated that he actually needed some signs.


“How much are you going to pay him?” asked Ernest. The manager made an agreement with the man to create some signs, and agreed to pay him for his work and expertise. A few months later a man knocked at Ernest's office and asked to see him. He was clean shaven and wearing a nice suit he had purchased from the thrift store. He came to say thank you to Ernest. Ernest told him to get in the car and they rode around until Ernest saw a store for lease and made arrangements for the man to start his own business. The man became successful and repaid Ernest.


Ernest Holmes was a Quiet Genius. He could see the genius within others and make a difference in their lives. I still use this story as a guideline in my life of what small or sizable ways I may be of service to another living being. Some acts are small and happen quickly while other acts of a Quiet Genius happen over time. I have returned payments for services rendered and given away important things of value to me because spiritually I felt guided to do so knowing I may positively impact someone’s life.

Who knows who we may truly be if someone like Ernest Holmes or some other Quiet Genius would come along and see our further potential?

This article is an excerpt from my new book: Being A Difference Maker: A Guide For Living Life Out Loud.

Divine Infusions

Peggy10.29

I have straddled the worlds of western medicine and holistic health most of my life. As a child, I saw an Illinois allergist for many years who helped me with desensitization shots for my chronic multiple allergies. When I was 18, doctors in Venice, Italy, saved my life when my appendix burst on a trip with a student group. As an adult, I began to gravitate to alternative remedies like herbs, as well as acupuncture, chiropractic, homeopathy, massage, and meditation. I became an organic vegetarian. I continued to see my very supportive primary care physician for yearly checkups and prescriptions for migraines, but I was aware of the shifts in prevailing consciousness (and funding) that influence what is available at any given time. Every decision I made arose from my own intuition about which path served me best.

Shadow Work For Beginners!

collette10.25

The path to your unique, inspired, and authentic life is through your shadow work. The parts of us that are hidden in the shadows need to come to light in order for us to grow, evolve, and create lives that feel inspiring and exciting. 

But looking at your shadow can be scary! Your shadow is the part of yourself that you’ve disowned or cast away out of shame or fear. This part of you is born from the grief, guilt, shame, and pain that has accumulated throughout your life. Over time, it surfaces through your traits and patterns.

Shadow work is the less fun, less glamorous side of personal and spiritual growth and transformation. Diving into your shadow work isn’t always easy or enjoyable, but on the other side of it is a life where we get to be our true, unique selves. 

In this Ultimate Guide to Shadow Work for Beginners, I’m going to give you a taste of how to start shadow work – including why you might decide to explore shadow work on your spiritual journey, what’s in it for you, and a few ways you can dip your toes into the shadow work process. 

So let’s dive in!

How Does The Spiritual Path Work?

deepak10.25

Right now and in the recent past I’ve encountered more people than ever before who have set out on their own spiritual path. They have become inspired by higher consciousness; they’ve gotten excited about “follow your bliss.” But a cynic would point out that we have been hearing about the emergence of higher consciousness for at least fifty years, and yet collective enlightenment isn’t in sight. The reason for being discouraged is that with the evolution of consciousness, a straight-line path isn’t feasible.

Instead, the evolution of consciousness works differently from any other project, if I may call it that. When you set out to accomplish something, what is your course of action? No matter whether it involves building a house, reaching a peace accord between nations, or making dinner, the steps involved include the following: deciding what your goal is, setting up a plan to achieve the goal, assessing how long it will take, what materials you need, and making sure that you are ready and able to get to work.

Quiet Genius: NO ROOM IN THE INN FOR CRITICISM

templeH20.24
The author Don Miguel Ruiz reminds us to be impeccable with our word and to speak with integrity.


Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

Too many companies and work environments are highly impacted by the gossip at the water fountain or conversations behind closed doors. Perhaps you remember the old axiom, “We change, we accept, or we leave.”

If we are unable or unwilling to accept what we hear, then we need to empower ourselves to not constantly rehearse the pros and cons of the individual that we are having difficulties with. It makes us appear as if we do not have an interesting life.

A Camino: Firewalk and Life Streaming

Peggy10.2_20211019-121237_1

When I first heard the diagnosis “breast cancer,” I was lost in shock and fear. How could this happen in my life? To me?! After a few days, I gradually was able to re-center in the peace within me, to remember that everything that happens in my life is part of a soul plan that I was part of designing before my birth. Nothing is a coincidence, and everything is connected to everything else. I am one soul in one lifetime on one planet. Yet I am also part of the entire fabric of being in the universe. Sometimes it takes loss or crisis in our lives to fully realize this. When things fall away or apart, the long view becomes more visible.

Everyday Oracles

colette10.20

Do you ever wish that you could talk directly to your higher power – asking for guidance and receiving clear signs and signals to keep you on track along your journey? 

Whether or not we are aware of it, Spirit (the Universe, God, the Divine, or whatever you choose to call it) is always looking out for us and keeping us on track for our highest good. Even in our most challenging times, Spirit is there for us. 

But so much of the time, we miss the communication that is available to us every single day through the conscious Universe. Whether or not we choose to pay attention or listen, Spirit is always communicating with us and is there as our partner to protect and guide us. 

We just have to learn to slow down, tune in, and receive the guidance and the messages that are all around.

If you’ve ever found yourself craving messages from spirit or signs from the Universe, you will find immense value, meaning, and peace in learning to understand and recognize everyday Oracles. 

Recognizing the presence of everyday Oracles 

There are countless ways the Universe sends you messages. It could be a series of repeating numbers, a song on the radio that catches your attention, a symbol you ask for and recognize, a dream, a meaningful coincidence, or even a message in your soup bowl… 

In fact, these communications from the Divine are so common and so meaningful that I wrote an entire book about them! My book, Messages From Spirit is all about the many ways in which we can communicate with our higher power through the world around us.  

In the book, I share a story about Tasseography, a type of divination that my father shared with me as a young girl. He taught me to read messages in leftover coffee grounds, an ancient practice found in Slavic and Baltic nations as well as the middle east. It’s closely related to tea-leaf reading, which actually had its known beginnings in China although no one knows 100% of its origin.

The story goes that a close friend of mine was visiting and we had discussed the idea of going out to dinner, and then going home afterward to share some Turkish coffee and read the messages in the leftover grinds. 

At dinner, we both ordered a thick squash soup. As I ate my soup, I kept seeing images popping up in the bowl! I saw a swan, a pumpkin, and a baby.

Quiet Genius: OPEN HEARTED

templeH10.17
We are not ingenious. We are in the quiet of our genius.


The Quiet Genius is the path of deep imagination. It takes courage and faith to explore these depths and encounter your most profound sense of self—the Truth of who you are—and align with the soul’s intention.

The quiet genius always keeps the ability to stay in awe, like that of a child. The pure joy of welcoming the next moment or next experience ensures you remain ageless and never grow old.

The Wow of Being Human

pd10.15

At some point, we need to get to a place where we realize how magical life is. It takes your breath away. This morning I saw the sunrise and in that moment nothing else mattered. It was one of those WOW moments. My life wasn’t being questioned, no part of my existence was in the balance, I was just one with the sunrise, the emerging sunlight. It felt so good to be free of the cognitive burden of needing to understand or to figure it out.  

In that sunrise, everything just makes sense. I want to live my remaining days in the wow, to remain in the wow of being human. 

To live in the wow has been very challenging for so many of you. It’s time to align with this being human thing, so fully that there is no longer a need to understand it. We weave a story that we need to weave in order to reconcile the fact we are on a blue planet, spinning in an infinite universe.

What Belief Do I Serve?

SisterJenna10.14

We generally define ourselves by appearance, personality, dress, role, the car we drive, relationships, etc... However, all of this can change in an instant!  Our sense of self can be influenced by what people say, the situations around us and the problems we face. What is it then that defines who we are, and do we really know anything about ourselves?

Much of our insecurity in the world is a result of limiting beliefs which we hold. During this pandemic we are being stretched to go beyond our labels and identities, which for many, have been a distraction from the recognition of the real essence of the self. We are now internally searching more than ever for spiritual meaning and truth.

Addiction to Spirituality: The Spiritual Bypass

margaret10.12
Are you using your spirituality as a "spiritual bypass" to avoid feeling your feelings and taking responsibility for them?

Lian had been meditating for many years before consulting with me for his depression. He had been part of a spiritual community that encouraged their members to turn to God through prayer and meditation whenever they were feeling any difficult or painful feelings such as anger, hurt, anxiety or depression. He had been taught that Spirit would transmute his feelings for him and bring him the inner peace he sought.

Yet Lian was depressed. "I have faithfully practiced what I've been taught, so why am I still depressed? What am I doing wrong?"

Lian was suffering from what is called "spiritual bypass."

Quiet Genius: THIS AMAZING LIFE

templeH10.11
Since I was a little girl, I have been told that my great grandmother was Native American.

Through the years, if I liked chanting and Native American memorabilia, my mom would say it was because of my heritage and the reason why she has darker skin. It was our story. When I began to learn and commit so many years to Shamanism, my mom would remind me, once again, it was because of my indigenous ancestral ties. In 2015, we all took the DNA test which revealed we were not ancestrally Native American. My mom was and continues to be in shock that she had believed a story all her life  which turned out to be simply untrue. We had told ourselves this ancestral story all of our lives, only to find out we had been giving the wrong information.

To me, this is the value of New Thought teachings. We are able to free people from th false stories they have been told all of their lives in order to create a new, bright, and dynamic existence. A person can clearly move from "impossible" to "I’m possible."

How Astrology Can Make Way For Better Relationships

KatherynG10.9

Relationships have strange ways. You meet someone, feel attracted to them, and decide to stay together forever. The most unconventional ones may last for a lifetime, and the seemingly perfect matches part ways after a whirlwind romance. You cannot be too sure about the strength and stability of the connection when you meet a person. You have to take a chance and let destiny do the rest.

But astrology can show you the direction to connect with the right person and build a relationship that lasts. Although it sounds surprising, you can rely on horoscopes and the zodiac to understand the potential of a bond. Here are some ways astrology can help you secure and consolidate better relationships.

Floating in Kindness

peggy10.8

I have read that patients hear everything that is said or felt in the hospital room even when sedated or unconscious. Anita Moorjani writes of watching and hearing the doctors and nurses and her family members from “above” and seeing the connections between everything as she went through a near-death experience. I have always believed this to be true. Recently, I had my own experience of something similar, though not at the edge of death. I was sedated for a breast cancer operation, and as I came out of sedation after surgery, I had the vivid experience of writing a very detailed letter describing how extraordinarily kind everyone was in the operating and recovery rooms. I lay there feeling it all intensely as I slowly returned to conscious awareness within the “real world.” But I ask you, “What is real here?” There was no doubt in my fully conscious mind that I was remembering what I experienced during surgery and immediately after. I had felt surrounded by Bodhisattvas.*

My invitation – for a moment, embrace What Is and Be Bliss...

drsue10.8

There is so much unfolding for so many in the world right now. My invitation is to embrace, with loving presence, what it is you are feeling in your body.

Do you desire to walk, talk, live, and breathe as one who allows life to unfold magnificently, no matter what is happening "out there?" You have the ability to integrate, live, and manifest as the Essence you are so that you consciously receive deep truth from the universe.

As we pay attention to what's happening in the body and ignite circuitry, we discover how to live without being stopped by the hesitations, procrastinations, or self doubt we land in when our thinking mind simply doesn't “know” the answer.

Particularly right now, mass consciousness is powerful. When “the news” tells us how "things are going to be," and we believe what they say; it's what happens. The news precedes reality because our thoughts precede reality. I'm not saying to completely disconnect or ignore the world. However, when you plug in, pay attention to the body, notice where there is a charge, and build circuits.

An Unconditional Relationship with Yourself

pd10.8

As human beings, we have a compartmentalized hierarchical relationship with ourselves. That means that certain aspects of ourselves are okay and other aspects of us are not. 

In the context of evolution, by virtue that you are a human being, you are here to be all of it. You can’t make the choice to be human and then fundamentally disregard fifty percent of the human equation. It defeats the purpose of why you came in the first place. It would be like going to Disney World and hating Mickey Mouse!!

How To Connect With Your Spirit Guides!

collette10.4

Have you ever wondered if there are spirit guides who are specifically looking out for you in this life? Maybe you’ve heard people talk about their spirit guides and you have an intuitive sense that you might have one (or even some) of your own, but you have no idea how to connect with them. 

Each of us has guides in the spirit world who are looking out for us and guiding us on our path. But like any relationship, if you want to connect with your spirit guides, you have to put in the effort. You have to develop a relationship with them.

Think of it this way – if you never call up your friend, they’re going to think you’re not interested in them! The same goes for your spirit guides. 

But how do you begin to develop a relationship with someone you can’t necessarily see, hear, or interact with in your physical reality? 

That’s what I’m going to share with you today!
