Whether we realize it or not, people communicate through brainwaves. Brainwaves are vibrations that travel in almost the same way as sound. The reason we don’t pick up on these vibrations is not because we can’t, but because we block ourselves by how and what we think. Rational thoughts—our left-brain intelligence—block us from our intuition, or right-brain intelligence.
The next time you want to tap into your intuition, let go of the fear of looking stupid, lack of belief in your abilities, egotism, and all other negative emotions—that normally surround your thoughts. Allow thoughts—right, wrong, or neutral—to just come to you. In this way, you can learn to achieve a level of telepathic ability, which emerges from a place of non-rational intelligence, in other words, from a place of intuition.
I don’t mean that you should concentrate on blocking your conscious, rational thoughts. The minute you do that, you’ve lost the connection. If you are busy thinking, “What am I...Read More
The Revelation of the Bible on Mount Sinai was more than just the mere giving of a book, a religion, or a philosophy. Instead, it was the fulfillment of every dream that humankind could ever imagine.
This all-inclusive Energy Force of the universe included the keys for eternal happiness; the tools for overcoming chaos, pain, and suffering; the power of total healing, both physical and mental; the secrets for achieving personal fulfillment; and the tools for achieving immortality. Kabbalah teaches that this Revelation was for all of humanity and not just for a select few. Because we all contain a spark of the Divine, we all have access to this infinite realm of unlimited potential.
The spiritual tools we need to overcome the physicality of this world are available to us, and it is time that we wake up to this fact.Read More
Our world is constantly evolving and changing, but with this change comes much chaos. The weather is going crazy, and so, it seems, are people.
We understand that just before the dawn is the darkest part of the night. Right now, we are at this point. Now, more than ever before, we have the ability to enact change. The Lightforce of God is the only Energy that can bring an end to the world’s chaos, and each one of us has that Energy inside of us.
When we share and treat people with human dignity, we reveal that Energy and thereby dispel the darkness, just as a candle brings light to a darkened room
Make no mistake. The dawn is at hand. It is up to us to usher it in with our love and caring.Read More
There are differing opinions out there as to what a spirit guide is. Some say it’s the higher self, while others say it’s a type of consciousness.
Define it as you will, but each and every one of us has heard a quiet inner voice at one time or another, even though we might have disregarded it. Oftentimes, we ignore it because it is telling us something that we do not want to hear.
It might be saying, “I know this man seems like a good match for you, but maybe you should wait and find out more before moving ahead with a partnership.”
Or it might be telling us, “Now is a good time to make that phone call.”
Although we don’t always want to listen to it, the information that is being revealed to us is well worth heeding because our spirit guide is always there to bring us closer to the Light.Read More
What we do on a physical level is not as important as our soul’s imprint--what we have done to make the world a better place because we lived in it.
Of all the things that we need to do in our life, the most important are those little efforts we make that allow our tiny candle to light the way for someone else.
A child who, hearing us sing, gives us a kiss.
An old person who, served by us, gives us true wealth.
A child whose crying is eased by our tender care, gives us a great deal of peace.
We all have opportunities to give of ourselves for the Light, and in this month of Cancer, it would be wise to take them; for at the end of the day, we are only measured by what we leave behind in way of kindness and of sharingRead More
Most of us do not keep a notebook, as the Creator does, of all the good and sharing deeds that other people do on our behalf.
For example, when a friend we’ve had for many years does something to offend us, we somehow suddenly “forget” all the good times we've shared and all the wonderful things our friend has done for us in the past. Our heart is hardened by the immediate situation and we can’t appreciate or even see all that came before.
The Creator, however, takes into account all of our actions, and our lives are measured by the net value of the love we’ve shared with others.
Today, soften your heart a bit. When you look at someone, try to see all the love and kindnesses that have transpired up to this point. Look at others with love instead of judgment. Whatever you give to others, you also give to yourself.Read More
Just as something as pure as the spirit of Rachel the Matriarch came out of the difficulty and negativity of her father Laban’s house, so, too, do our own trying times in life create openings through which we can receive the spiritual energy we need to push us forward on the path of our soul’s evolution and growth.
Light doesn’t come from Light. Light comes from darkness. Sometimes the hardest, most painful moments of our lives can lead to our deepest moments of serenity and connection to our own internal truths, and it is at these times that we can experience the beauty and fulfillment of the Divine.
Today, take a few moments to look back on the most difficult moments of your experience. Can you see how these times brought you to a better place?Read More
On our path of life, there may be people and situations that will test our values in terms of what truth is and what it is not. In fact, the road to spiritual growth is often paved with challenges that awaken us to what really matters in our lives. The key is for us to recognize the great opportunities that lie in the uncomfortable situations we face, rather than to fall into our usual reactive patterns of doubt and victimhood that keeps us stuck right where we are.
Today, when you encounter a difficult person or situation, ask yourself: What is this person or situation trying to teach me? What value of mine is being tested? If you can do that, then go ahead and embrace the situation for what it is: a beautiful opportunity to strengthen your direction in life, reveal your truths, and reconnect with the Light.Read More
When we first come to spirituality, we learn new things, feel new things, become more engaged with life, and experience enlightening moments that are both exciting and invigorating.
But sometimes, after practicing for a while with the new spiritual tools we’ve received and perhaps joining a spiritual community, we may wake up one day and realize that we’ve gotten into a certain groove, a routine that we do without much thought.
When this happens, it is difficult to know if we have made any spiritual progress at all or if we are just going through the motions and performing our spirituality with the same robotic consciousness we were trying to rid ourselves of in the first place.
In the process of working towards long-term spirituality, how do we know if our spiritual practices have become rote?
One point of reference is to note that if we aren’t different than we were six months ago or one year ago, then perhaps we are indeed in a rut. At the forefront...Read More
What is certainty?
Certainty is the knowing that whatever we encounter in our life, no matter how unpleasant or difficult, is there to benefit our spiritual growth.
Certainty doesn’t happen when things are great. After all, if everything is going well in our life, if we’ve got everything we need and all is “peachy,” then why would we need certainty?
Each one of us comes into this world with our own package: our own energy, job, and position in the Game of Life. For most of us, the road to achieving what we’ve been born to do is riddled with challenges. The value in having certainty is the understanding that the more effort it takes us to reach our place of growth, the more energy there is for us encased within the process.
Hopefully, through the lessons we pick up on our journey, we will gain the ability to step back, look at a situation and say, “Hmmm, though this situation appears to be difficult, I know this is somehow an opportunity for me to grow...Read More
