Last Friday night I went to one of those old historic Cathedrals where a woman leads a monthly labyrinth walk. I first learned about walking the labyrinth over ten years ago when one was constructed on the property of the church I was attending. The labyrinth is symbolic of our journey through life with its meandering path leading to the center, which represents our inner center. As we exit the center and walk the path back to the entrance it represents our returning back to the world.
How we walk the labyrinth says a lot about how we walk through life. When we walk with other people it is even more indicative of our journey through life and how we interact with others along the way. Some will walk faster or slower, some will spend more time in the middle and what I found is that some will never even enter the Labyrinth at all. They will remain on the outside, simply watching others walk.
Ellowa, the woman that lead the Labyrinth walk set up a beautiful environment with dim lighting, candles and her beautiful harp music. She sat outside the labyrinth and played the harp as we journeyed. Read the rest of this entry »
When the movie “The Secret” came out it spread like wildfire across the Internet and the cat was out of the bag about the Law of Attraction. Ever since we’ve been seeing all kinds of expansion on the topic, such as “The Secret Behind The Secret” and “What The Secret Didn’t Tell You!” And also there is the angle that “There Is No Secret! We’ve Know This Stuff for Ages!”
“The Secret” was based on the “Law of Attraction” which launched into a new awareness once that movie was released. The Law of Attraction is a universal law that says “You attract into your reality everything that shows up.” This means what you think about comes about or what you focus on you create. It also means how you feel on an emotional level will attract into your reality a similar vibration, meaning if you are feeling low and depressed you will attract depressive people and circumstances into your reality.

Finding A Soulmate Doesn't Necessarily Equal A Blissful Relationship
As we are approaching Valentines Day I thought it would be appropriate to discuss the topic of soulmates.
There is a lot of information out there on soulmates and much of it is conflicting, as in any subject. It is difficult to have a solid understanding that can serve us when we attempt to know what these heartfelt connections in our lives mean.
The fairy tale version is that there is that one special someone out there who is made just for you and when you find him/her your life will finally be complete. Your expectation is that when you meet your soulmate that life will go smoothly; you will be head over heels in love and support each other completely in your quest for a greater life. It is the type of love story movies are made about. It is why we love romantic comedies so much. It is why we love fairytales. Read the rest of this entry »
focusing on health and wellness
Most of my adult life I have been very enthusiastic about taking care of myself on a physical level. What I have found is that no matter what is going on for you on an emotional, mental or spiritual level, if you take care of yourself physically it will make the rest a whole lot better.
Holistic Health is the concept that our mind, body and spirit works in harmony with each other. We have to pay attention to all three. We need to learn to listen to our bodies, calm our minds and connect with our spirits. Only when we do this can we have true wellness and happiness.
The search for happiness outside of ourselves will always lead to disappointment, even when temporarily there may be something external that causes you to feel happy. A new love, an opportunity, or a vacation to a wonderful place can bring temporary highs and feelings of well being, but do they last? Most often when we are taken from our daily routines we can feel more alive, but when we return to or settle back into a routine the old feelings of restlessness, depression, insecurity, fear or whatever may be your struggle, will return.
