Haunted By Past Lives

A lot of people are incredibly fascinated by the notion of having lived before. They want to know if they’ve been someone famous; Cleopatra is apparently a popular one. They want to know how their past experiences have shaped their current belief system. Are they paying for past life mistakes in this one? It’s a […]

There Is No Destiny – Only Evolution

Why are you here? What’s your purpose? What is it that you’re supposed to do? Chances are, you’ve asked yourself these or similar questions at some point in your life. We all have. We keep looking for that path, something pre-determined that we’re supposed to follow. And when we do, we’ll serve our purpose, we’ll […]

Stop and Hit the Reset Button

These past few weeks, I’ve been catching up on the TV show Battlestar Galactica (the 2004 version). If you haven’t seen the show and want to, be advised that I’m going to spoil the ending for you. It’s a necessary evil – I’ve got a rather important point to make. I found the series a […]

Why Artists Get Famous After They Die

About three months ago, a story came out about Vivian Maier, an 83 year old street photographer whose body of work was “discovered” to great acclaim only days after she passed away. This isn’t the first time that an artist toiled away, unrecognized for years, only to find fame and fortune (for the estate anyway) […]

How to Use LOA to Vanquish a Nasty Co-Worker

So, you’re working on this Law of Attraction stuff. You accept that you create your reality, theoretically at least, you meditate and visualize and you’ve even noticed that things in your life are getting better. You’re feeling lighter and happier and freer than you’ve felt in a long time. You walk around with a skip […]

Just Give Up Already

We, as a people, love to suffer. Oh sure, we say we don’t like pain, that we try our best to avoid it, but many of us will create immense suffering in our lives before we are willing to make a change. Suffering is the most powerful catalyst there is to change, and for a […]

Why You Should Totally Procrastinate

I never used to procrastinate. If there was something I didn’t want to do, I’d do it first, to get it out of the way. I used to work 18 hours a day, too. I was one of the most productive people on the planet. I got a tremendous amount of stuff done. Sure, a […]

How I Finally Made My Peace With Religion

I grew up Catholic. I even went to Catholic school and everything. Whenever I use to meet others who’d been subjected to the same fate, I’d give them a knowing look, followed by “Ah, so you know my suffering…” I couldn’t discuss religion in general without adopting a heavy, sarcastic tone. Religion, to me, was […]

Why Children Blame Themselves

Many of us carry enormous scars from our childhood. Some of these were formed by living through obviously traumatic experiences, but many resulted from seemingly mundane incidents that caused us to form life-long beliefs. At the heart of most of these beliefs is the tendency for children to take any negative event and immediately turn […]

Stop Blaming the Parents

It’s a parent’s job to worry. When the kids are little, they worry that they’ll screw them up for life. When they’re adults, mom and dad worry that they could’ve or should’ve done countless things differently. Could they have spared their children pain? Did their decisions cause irreparable scars in their offspring, forever condemning them […]

You’ve Disappointed Me! (Great Expectations)

A good friend of mine, let’s call him Ryan, has a bit of an issue. Or rather, many of his friends have a bit of an issue with him: He’s one of those people who, despite living in the age of technology and microwaves and “time is money”, doesn’t like to use the phone, email […]

Why Don’t We Remember the Law of Attraction From Birth?

A few weeks ago, I was asked a poignant question: “Why don’t we remember this Law of Attraction stuff from birth? Why do we have to relearn it? If it’s so important, why isn’t it hard-wired into our brains?” I thought this was an excellent question, and one which deserved to be shared. The short […]

Why Being Around Your Family Turns You Into A 16-Year Old

You’re an adult. You pay your bills. You live on your own. You’ve managed to keep a plant alive, have relationships, and maybe even raise kids. You hold down a job, maybe you’re even the boss. People look to you to be the leader. It doesn’t matter how much responsibility you carry in your everyday […]

Finding Enlightenment…Again

We all seek it. Whether we know it or not, we’re all looking for enlightenment, in our own way. A lot of people think that if they just study the right philosophy, find the right answers, figure out the right method, that they’ll finally “get” it. Understanding will lead to an enlightened state. I’d like […]

Authenticity Versus Radical Honesty

In the brilliant and funny June 2007 Esquire article I Think You’re Fat, A.J. Jacobs explores the concept of Radical Honesty, a “movement” started and being championed by Dr. Brad Blanton, a Washington D.C. psychotherapist. The basic idea behind Radical Honesty is that people should tell the blatant truth – all the time. Actually, it […]

Are You Good Enough for the Lover You Want?

In the article How to Visualize – The Secret to What Visualization Really Is, I explain that visualization is really just a way to test out your vibration before you let it create your reality. When you visualize your perfect love life, for example, you might find yourself taking the story into a dark place: […]
