  • 12 Tools for Building & Rebuilding Trust in Your Relationship

    Rebuilding trust after a betrayal is difficult - especially when you feel like your heart is all caged up and there’s nothing you seem to be able to do to get through to it.

    As someone who has been there, I can honestly tell that this is not going to be easy... like forgiveness work, the exercises are simple but can be incredibly difficult to actually do.

    Likewise, you’ll hear people say that forgiveness and trust exercises are useless, which is true if your intention is wrong.

    Get your intention right and really mean for trust be granted again and it will happen - the exercises will work their magic.

  • 8 dangerous myths about Twin Flame relationships

    8 dangerous myths about Twin Flame relationships

    When you first hear about Twin Flames the idea is appealing - largely because it’s misunderstood at first.

    Most people make the mistake of thinking that a Twin Flame means guaranteed love - a guaranteed relationship.

    The second reason that Twin Flames appeal is this desperate need we all have to be special - at least to one person… The One.

    In this regard, ego has really screwed us over, as has society, with this idea of entitlement to love, a guarantee of love from Divine sources.

  • A Course in Miracles (ACIM) Daily Prayers for Lightworkers

    The two prayers below are daily prayers crafted from the A Course in Miracles (ACIM) text, and include what is instructed to be prayed for daily.

    An alternate way to use these is to use them as a dedication before repeating the Lord's Prayer or Ana B'Koach three times.

  • A Course in Miracles (ACIM) Prayer for Healing for Lightworkers

    This prayer is carefully crafted from the direct statements from A Course in Miracles, and can practically be used at any time, for any application. It's one-size fits all :)

    You can also use sections of the prayer alone for specific applications. Each paragraph or verse of the prayer can be used as a standalone, with Lord heal me, Lord atone for me as the opening line.

  • Accepting Death

    The ego or spiritual journey has as one of its goals that you accept death, the transience of life.

    This is one of the more vague pieces of the puzzle that doesn't readily make sense.

  • Advanced grounding techniques for spiritual journeyers

    Advanced grounding techniques to help spiritual journeyers deal with the new changes in energy as a result of the global shift.

    As the global shift pushes through and we’re beginning to experience the changes that is has brought, many spiritual journeyers are finding it difficult to deal with the new level of energy and awareness that’s arisen.

  • Arrogance & Humility in Spirituality

    It often seems like the more you evolve spiritually, the more people seem to misunderstand you.

    So why does humility in spirituality often get labeled as arrogance?

  • Battling with Cognitive Dissonance

    Battling with Cognitive Dissonance

    The conflict between what you know spiritually (internal) and your experienced reality (external)

    Cognitive dissonance is a constant struggle for us on the spiritual journey, and it's a more constant companion as you surge higher.

  • Betrayal, Empaths & Narcissists

    Betrayal, Empaths & Narcissists

    As empaths we seem to magnetically attract narcissists.

    I'm still in two minds as to whether there is a twin flame push pull aspect at play here: the purity of the empath further escalates the negativity of the narcissist maybe?

  • Christ Consciousness & the Religious Overtones for the Shift

    Christ Consciousness & the Religious Overtones for the Shift

    Like so many other lightworkers, I come from a strict religious background.

    My parents used to make us go to church sometimes every day of the week. My mom was in the choir and the church secretary. I grew to hate Christianity.

  • Coming back down to earth

    On 8 August 2016, we saw Lion’s Gate Portal, a release of the cosmic unity energy onto Earth’s plane.

    Since then however, for spiritual peeps around the world, there has been a sense of coming back down to Earth, hitting reality and feeling decidedly human again – after years of being on a non-stop spiritual surge.

    You’re not alone if you’ve been feeling this, and you’re definitely not alone if you’re battling to cope with moving back into human and secular reality.

  • Creating Hope for Love

    This set of exercises is designed to help you chip away at resistance and build hope that you can find love again.

  • Forgiveness – your biggest mistake

    According to a 1988 Gallup Poll, 94% of respondents said it was important to forgive, while 85% said they couldn’t do it with outside help.

    Even regular prayer was not found be effective in achieving forgiveness.

    So what is it that people get wrong about forgiveness that makes it seem like it is so far outside our reach?

  • Forgiving Yourself for Breaking God’s Commandments

    Forgiving Yourself for Breaking God’s Commandments

    Twin Flames Break Up Update 1 of 2

    I live a deeply spiritual life, and if you’ve even had the briefest of interactions with me, you’ll know that. I’ll irritate you with how obsessive I am - even if you are deeply spiritual by your own standards. LOL :)

    For me, walking my talk is paramount, and I am VERY self disciplined in what I do. I’m not afraid to tighten my belt, limit myself and stick within very specific boundaries on certain things. Especially in matters spiritual.

    When I first found out that my Twit Flame of four years had been married all the time we’d been involved, I was shocked at a personal level.

    I have all this background with infidelity… ranging all the way back to my very narcissistic father who was a serial cheater.

    So at first, the knowledge that I’d been made a mistress hit me on that level.

    I felt the shame and humiliation and anger and resistance and vulnerability of the experience. Out of character for me, I didn’t cycle this up to a higher recursion. Probably because I was guilty of personalizing it too much.

    So in the past 24 hours when this realization hit me, well, it hit like a ton of bricks to be honest.

  • Going Numb on the Ego Journey - Why you need to create drama

    Going Numb on the Ego Journey - Why you need to create drama

    Thomas Szasz has a few really good books worth reading, if you can get past the superfluous language lol :) One of my favorites is pleasure and pain.

    In the book, Szasz presents the following idea: pleasure is not a thing in and of itself, pleasure is actually the absence of pain.

    So in order to experience pleasure, you need the contrast of pain to know the pain has gone away.

  • How a Dark Night of the Soul challenges your growth

    From a spiritual point of view, the attainment of reaching the level of a Dark Night of the Soul is nothing to be sneezed at – in order to get there you’ve certainly had to earn your spiritual stripes.

    However, hardly anything in life comes easily and without effort, and the price for reaching this level of spiritual achievement is the difficulty and complexity of the lessons that will populate your Dark Night of the Soul.

  • How Spiritual Bypassing Breeds Narcissists

    How spiritual bypassing, and the accepted behavioral norms in society, breed narcissists, psychopaths and narcissistic behavior.

    Spiritual Bypassing is a really interesting term introduced by John Welwood, a Buddhist teacher and psychotherapist, back in the 80s.

    A spiritual bypass or spiritual bypassing is a "tendency to use spiritual ideas and practices to sidestep or avoid facing unresolved emotional issues, psychological wounds, and unfinished developmental tasks”.

    In a nutshell therefore, it’s how we use spiritual concepts to avoid dealing with the ugly truth of life that faces us sometimes.

    But the even uglier truth we’re facing right now is that we live in a world riddled with ego-driven narcissistic and psychopathic behavior - and so many of us are unhappy with it.

    So what are the beliefs and behaviors we engage in that enable narcissists and psychopaths to get away with the fraud and lies they are currently perpetrating?

    Cycling down to the rock bottom of lessons
