Have you ever wondered about where your family, your friends and your business partners belong in your life?
The answer is yes - if, and only if, there's emotional maturity in those people. And this is where all the gray zones are created, and you may end up feeling confused.
Let's talk about family members and friendship first.
I see many people feeling guilty about having to get along with difficult family members. They think it's their fault and that they should be doing something about it. My focus on this blog post today is specifically on the family of origin, which refers mostly to your parents and siblings, and closer relatives.
According to the Bhagavad Gita - our family members are inevitable.
They're part of your life. You cannot avoid your family members.
Spiritual Gourmet Chef Robert Hurley is one of my dearest friends. One of the things I love most about him is his ability to see and create beauty in the smallest details.
Robert specializes in creating soulful environments for us to enjoy artistic meals.
In today's world, when there's so much controversy and neurosis about food, Robert provides a soothing, comforting relationship with it. As an artist designer, he creates Beauty, and as a Spiritual Gourmet Chef, he also creates
Our interview with Robert was awesome! Check out the highlights:
Robert, tell us a little bit about your love for beauty and design, and how that led you to become a Gourmet Chef who also works with flower design and decoration - and tell us especially about "The Hurley Touch" :-)
I would have to say that my love for beauty and design really started out when I was...
There are different types of connection between parents and children. Some are great, but unfortunately, some are painful.
I've been observing this systematically for the past 10 years in my practice and research, and I've come to realize there are three basic types of bonds, or connections, between mothers and daughters, fathers and sons.
One of them is natural, and it's the type of bond we need to fulfill our destinies. It's the natural bond in which
In this natural, healthy bond, the mother connects with the daughter, passes her strength to her, gives her her life force and aligned energy, and the result is a beautiful mother-daughter connection.
It seems pretty obvious, right?
The mother validates the daughter as a daughter - end of the story.
Unfortunately, however, many of us have been wounded in our childhoods without realizing it. Precisely in this "natural bond" aspect. And this...
Have you ever stopped to wonder if you're trapped in the past?
What does that even mean anyway?
It's much more subtle than we think, and many of us are trapped in the past without realizing it.
How can we find out if we're living in another time frame?
First, it's important to understand that being trapped in the past means we have not updated our emotional timing.
And this state of mind can have many implications.
It can go to a range of memories that is beyond the focus of this blog post because it involves the possibility of being trapped in the memories of our ancestors (to understand how this works, click here).
There are two other "symptoms" that indicate you may be living in the past without even realizing it, and this is what we'll focus on today.
The first and maybe a most groundbreaking indication that I've observed empirically with my research and database I've been building for years is that
There are many ways to look at Forgiveness. From a simple act of erasing past pain from our hearts to complex theological - and often thought-provoking - discussions.
Is it an act that brings emotional relief? Is it an indication of virtuous nobility? Can it be a daily spiritual practice?
What no one can deny is that Forgiveness plays a huge role in the quality of our lives, and recent studies have confirmed that
And on a soul level, what about the meanings and the implications of Forgiveness?
There are many sources of information and interpretation of what Forgiveness really is.
The first thing we need to understand is that it's something that you do on a vertical line and not a horizontal one. This means it's not about forgiving another person immediately. Forgiveness is about accessing your Higher Light and Higher Self and asking for inspiration to release the...
Did you ever wonder about the relationship between your mother and the abundance of your life?
Since today is Mother's Day (yay!!), we're celebrating Life!
Our Mothers are a huge source of Life Connection and THE greatest source of Abundance in our lives.
I remember I was really surprised when I first heard this information in my training for certification in Family and Business Constellations.
I found out that, on a structural or functional level, everything related to the Mother shows up in our lives when it comes to Abundance (if you want to dive deeper into what the functional or structure level is with more detail, check out our Crystals & Chakras Online Course and our A Course on Human Nature Membership).
But how do we define Abundance anyway?
Since Abundance is what the Universe gives us freely...
One day, years ago, in a training of one of my many energy healing certification classes, my instructor said the human mind has the ability to fragment itself in different processes.
Up until that point, it felt fairly easy to understand and verify in my own life path. What I was not expecting was what she said next:
And that's one of the main reasons why many of us lead such confusing, recurrently unhappy lives.
Because our different mental processes are disconnected, and disproportional in our capacity to use them harmonizing and allowing them to co-exist in a healthy way can be a huge accomplishment that puts our general well-being and personal fulfillment on a ...
Did you ever wonder about the difference between Science, Philosophy, Religion, and Spirituality?
Our topic today is about how they differ.
Science is very much about facts - proven facts. It follows processes, measures results, requires long and deep research, and a consensus of many brains understanding that process to reach a temporary conclusion - until it evolves into another conclusion or confirms what has been said in the past.
In today's day and age, we seem to have two approaches to scientific development and thinking : Materialistic Science and Energy Science.
What I call "Materialistic Science" explains how matter functions.
This relates to our physical bodies, Nature and the world in the material sense.
As an example, let's look at the physical health of the body. The science of contemporary western medicine, also know as allopathic medicine, treats...
Did you ever think about how you live your life?
Are you surviving?
Or truly embracing life and living it?
So today I suggest we think about three things.
Number one ... are you just surviving?
Are you living from hand to mouth? Are you just struggling to get by?
Do you love what you do for a living?
Do you love your life as a whole?
Do you feel nurtured by the people around you - friends and family?
Are you happy with your job and income?
How do you feel about your home?
Do you just struggle to get by and survive without free time, and without freedom in general?
Ask yourself these questions, and know that
It may seem weird that our...
Hi, we're talking to awesome people today! And our guest is Priya Lakhi, a lawyer and a healer.
Since I’ve come across so many awesome people in my life, those who really call my attention are the ones I invite for this experience.
I met Priya at a Magnified Healing Third Phase Workshop and we sat across from each other. I'd never seen her, and anyone who comes to a Third Phase Workshop is a very special person, in my opinion.
So when Priya told the class a little bit of her story, I was very moved and I felt like her story was something that belonged to the world.
The reason I say this is that I'm very influenced by Native American Wisdom, and one of the things these traditions say is that
(for more on this, check our session 5 of our Course on Human Nature Membership program). So
I also believe awesome people are...
