Living the Four Agreements: Be Impeccable With Your Word

When people ask for informational reading for spiritual growth and healing, among the top ten books we recommend is: The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. While most spiritual reading is centered on the self, this book helps us to cut through the dramas that have hurt us in the past and to create better, more positive relationships. The first of the Four Agreements is: Be Impeccable With Your Word.Our words are important. They not only give information, but they tell others who we are.

Shadow Work: Dealing with Your Dark Side

Most of us learn from a young age that there two sides to everything. We have yes and no, good and bad and light and dark. We see the “yes, good and light,” as the states we desire to achieve and the “no, bad and dark” as that which we should strive to avoid.

Saturn Retrograde and Karma

Saturn retrograde is here!  Unlike Mercury Retrograde, Saturn Retrograde will take up a good portion of 2018. One of the areas this affects is karma. Karma is not so much a punishment for bad deeds, but a learning experience: If you touch a hot stove, you will get a burn. With karma, the burn might not be instantaneous, but it is the inevitable result of touching the burner.

Negative, hateful actions will result in a negative consequence of greater intensity than the original action.  Have you been less than perfect? No...

Every Disaster Is a Chance to Rebuild

We all have them, those days from Hell, where everything goes wrong and you make the simplest of mistakes over and over. You are not being picked on by your guides and helpers, you are being invited to rebuild. Did you make a mistake? What did you learn from it to take into the future? Did you have disagreements an issues with friends and family? What  did you learn about yourself and your significant others and how can you use that information to improve your relationships? When things go wrong, there is something to learn, or somethincg that is not stable and needs to be broken down so it can be rebuilt on a solid foundation. Human beings make mistakes....
