• Self-Trust: The Magic Of Trusting Yourself

    In spiritual circles, the importance of trust has been drummed into us, as a fundamental practice to encourage ease and flow in life.  I too am an advocate of trusting in the Universal Intelligence.  More recently, however, I have discovered the power of Self-Trust, which I find to be the precursor of trusting in general.  Without self-trust, you can’t really trust in the Universe, life, your spirit guides, or anything else.

    Trusting yourself may be easier than you think.  I’ll show you how in this post.  But first, here are some benefits of practising self-trust:

    Self-trust is a big component

    Moving Beyond 3D Definitions Of Ourselves

    The other day, I was listening to a spiritual podcast when in the intro the host named a bunch of celebrities the guest had worked for.  That put me off, and it was not the first time.  When a spiritual teacher or healer whose work they say is to help people recognise themselves as divine beings, beyond our 3D facades, and then list a bunch of celebrities, it is a contradiction.  I continued to listen since I liked the guest’s voice and found the content to be good.  I gave him the benefit of … Keep reading

  • The Meaning Of Higher Consciousness: Why Is It Important?

    Every so often, I get asked by someone if I would help someone they know who is struggling but adamant they are not open to a spiritual approach.  There are those who have been struggling for years, yet unwilling to explore a different way of finding a way out.  They seem to think that spirituality is impractical and that they only want “practical” help.  They belief that if they ‘go spiritual’ they would ignore their problems and then their problems would escalate – and they would end up losing everything else they have.  What they fail to see is that … Keep reading

  • How To Get Unstuck NOW By Tapping Into Your Spiritual Truth

    During meditation a few days ago, I had a vision that left a profound impression on me.  I saw a small, pitiful creature lying on its side on the ground.  It looked a bit like a newborn puppy – hairless, pale, eyes barely opened, and as though it was born deformed such that it struggled to even stand up on its legs.  But what struck me wasn’t its physical helplessness.  I could see through into the creature’s inner world of mental anguish.  It was trapped in a state of suffering, capable only of repeating a series of debilitating thoughts that … Keep reading

  • What To Do When Nothing Is Showing Up

    Are you in one of those phases when you’ve been waiting for some changes but nothing seems to be happening?  As far as you know, you’ve done all the right things, according to what you know about the laws of manifestation.  You feel you’ve done everything that you’ve been taught – you’ve trusted, surrendered, taken inspired actions, etc. – yet nothing is showing up.

    You’ve even tried doing nothing.  You’ve tried sitting in the void, but the void can be a bitch when all you get is pain or emptiness.  What else is there to do?


    #1  Do something creative.

  • Elephant Medicine: Healing My Relationship With The World

    Only three months into the year, and 2012 is already looking to be a widly adventurous and creative year for me.  I am driven by a great enthusiasm to create – inspired by a curiosity to move into unknown territories.  In the material sense, it has translated into me taking up projects that test the boundaries of conventional thoughts/methods – allowing me to explore insights, knowledge, wisdom that may yield more exciting ways for people to experience the world.  It also allows me on a personal level to challenge my own beliefs and expand my perception of life.  All of … Keep reading

  • How Failure Can Lead You To What Your Soul Yearns

    In the horror film ‘Vanishing On 7th Street’ there is a scene where John Leguizamo’s character Paul is led into a tunnel.  As he follows to the end of the tunnel, he finds himself facing a dead-end.  He turns around and sees the light furthest to him black out.  Then the next furthest light dims, and the next….  What struck me most was not the sensations the producers of the movie must have wanted to evoke in the audience, ie. to feel Paul’s increasing terror as darkness inches closer and closer.  Rather, it was how the remaining light becomes increasingly … Keep reading

  • Spiritual Beauty In Vastness

    Someone once asked what inspired spiritual beauty for me.  I replied that it is when I see vastness – i.e. a huge monument, a magnificent mountain, a sweeping horizon, a large body of water, etc.  We ruminated about why seeing something huge would trigger our sense of spiritual identity.  The person suggested that perhaps it reminds us of how small we are and amidst such grandness we are forced to respect the omnipotence of the higher power.  I wasn’t sure if it resonated fully with me and I’ve been thinking about it since then.

    In the last five weeks, I … Keep reading

  • Trust Your Intuiton, Flow With It

    I love it when I get powerful messages through friends.  There’s something about being able to sense our spirits while we’re engaged in human interactions – it’s that sense of suddenly knowing that we’re not just two people sitting in a little shop drinking coffee but that on a spiritual level we’ve been communicating with each other all the time despite the physical distance between us; and that what we’ve been communicating has been so wise that only in rare instances can we let in the depth of those messages.  When the depth of such messages are grasped and understood, … Keep reading

  • Mission: Spiritual Joy At Every Moment

    Over the weekend, I was sharing with friends that I had just discovered a new life mission: to experience spiritual joy at every moment.  In the past, I had spent years figuring out my life mission, and in the end, I always came out with something to change the world or that involved making some unique contribution.  Those are all very well, but as I think about it now, they smacked of arrogance – which suggests that I had not reached beyond the ego in coming up with what I’m here to do.

    Spiritual joy is, to me, the most … Keep reading
