God?s Eyes- If These Four Walls Could Talk?
Can you imagine being sent out into the wilderness for forty years like Moses? If Moses would have lived his life up until then differently would God have spared him the discomfort? Was God trying to prove some point to Moses by making an example of him? What can we learn about this story?
When was the last time you drove down the road with out the radio in your ears? When was the last time you just listen to your kids, your spouse or a friend and not said two words? When was the last time you just stopped and listened to the coffee pot making coffee early in the morning? Whether by design, life or nature most of us during our lives have built up barriers (walls) in our minds and around our hearts. By doing so most will never reach the full potential of what God has for their lives. Inside each of us are minds of brilliance and hearts of gold. Yet it's our walls that prevent us of experiencing life seen through God's eyes.
Over time with life's up's and down's and disappointments from others we harden like walls of cement. Our walls have been constructed to protect us from fear. Fear of failure, fear of success, fear of expectations. Our rooms become smaller and our thinking becomes stale. A good example of this is children. The bible says, "Child like faith." Children have no fear. They walk right up to a strangers and have a conversation, with out thinking they will take a leap off a table to get to the couch.
As adults, why do we find it so hard to get back to the simple things in life? Why is it so hard to quiet our minds? Have we become so scared of realizing who we have become that we fill our heads up with meaningless things? Has the walls of our hearts been built right before our blinded eyes? I started a new company in May of this year with a friend of mine. About a month ago we happened to be talking in our lecture hall. I said to her, "Somewhere within these four walls is a million dollar idea. The question is, "Are we willing to look for it, and are we willing to ask God for help guiding us to it?" In other words, "what if these walls could talk?"
What if today your walls could talk? What if your barriers and fears didn't exist? How would your life change? Would you forgive easier? Would you have a different career? Would you worry less? Would you have a better relationship with others or even with Jesus? I guess God could ask us the same question. "Somewhere within your four walls of your life, mind, and heart is your relationship with me. Are you willing to let your walls down, ask for it and seek it with all you have? Are you willing to just trust me that I will guide and protect you?" Would Moses life been different if his walls could talk? Maybe not. But maybe so!
Today we have a choice to allow our walls to talk. Today we have the chance to make a different in our own life and touch another. Will you take down a wall and live a life God has always wanted for you? Will you give yourself a chance to see life through Gods eyes? All you have to do is look and listen for him and be willing to ask for his guidance. Let your heart and mind talk this week. Let your true brilliance and your heart of gold shine from behind those walls. Make a difference in yours and some one else's life.

The Five Essential Secrets of Managing Your Energy Successfully
Inspirational author Vernon Howard wrote, "Would you be worried over a $300 house payment if you had $3,000,000 in the bank? Spiritually, that is the way it can be for you."
Is Your Pursuit of Money Robbing You Of Complete Fulfillment?
Do you think it's acceptable for people to make millions of dollars selling us and our kids on the idea that pre-marital sex, adultery, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, selfish ambitions, drunkenness and things of this sort are O.K.?
Using Your Spiritual Path Against Yourself
In looking back at my process over the years I have noticed an interesting phenomenon that I refer to as "using my path to go against myself." This behavior may be a surprise to many of you?.but as programmed ego minds we have been trained to use our life situations to go against ourselves since we were small. We have learned from those around us to use other people to raise our blood pressure, prove that we are not good enough, affirm that we will never be loved or that life is unfair. Unfortunately, the list of way we use others to hurt ourselves is endless.
Are You a Microwave or Crock Pot?
In our fast paced society we often want everything done quickly or your boss wants it done yesterday. In your spiritual life are you a Microwave or Crock Pot? I think often we want God to answer our prayers in Microwave fashion. I prayed a specific request today and I want it answered today. If our prayers are not answered quickly, we often wonder, "What is God doing?" We also decide to go it on our own and not wait for God's direction. Often it is difficult to wait on God's timing.
Mystic Vision Opens Mind Body Connection
Worldwide extensive research is being published related to the mind-body connection, and many investigators have come to the conclusion that the mind is simply not confined within the brain, that the brain is a vehicle for the mind, and not the source of the mind.

Quick! Throw Me A Line!
I was reminiscing with a friend recently about his 'dark night of the soul' that he'd just experienced. During his pain, he turned his back on God. Raised in a traditional Catholic family he found himself very angry at God and at the church during an especially ugly divorce and custody battle. As he's coming back into himself, we've been talking and processing together through a lot of what happened and what he's been through. It took him three years to even begin to let go of the extreme rage he felt when she first left him. I had tried desperately to guide him through his hell with the help of my spiritual beliefs, but he was just too mad at God to hear any of it. His issues had nothing to do with me, but they just about ended our friendship because of his overwhelming anger at the entire world and everyone in it.
Jesus: The Greatest Scapegoat
It seems more people today are using the Christian god concept as a medication, a solution to all problems, and/or a drug that eases the most difficult of conflicts. The need for a god has never been more prominent than it is today. I was searching some things online earlier and found several sites dedicated to teens and Christ, and it seems that most of these sites were working within the ideology of "If you're hurting, let God help."
Look! Its Another New Age!
There's nothing new about "the new age" except the attitude of the souls participating in it. I bet every soul who chose to incarnate into this particular historical era shook their little energy heads and said, "Oh, no! Not again!"
Animal Spirit Guides & Totems
Animal spirit totems can be viewed in different ways according to each of us as individual people. The basic principle of an animal totem is an animal spirit who gives us insight into ourselves, a glimpse of the divine powers at work in our world, and can transcend us to a place of healing for ourselves and other people.
The World Revolves Around Me
Lately I have become aware of a new truth that is formulating in my life.
Achieving Spiritual Health
Spiritual health is generally an overlooked aspect of healing. However, it is actually the ultimate goal of holistic medicine, and leads to a heightened awareness of the Divine Spirit referred to by all religions. It doesn't matter what name you give it. What matters is that you come to know and attune yourself to its guidance in all areas of your daily life. Doing so will reduce your feelings of fear, and provide you with a greater capacity for loving yourself and others unconditionally. It will also help you reconnect to your special talents and gifts so that you can use them to fulfill your life's purpose."
Its Ok To Be Human
One of the things I have had to deal with since I was old enough to know the difference between good and bad was that it IS NOT OK to be human.

A Crash Course In Tarot For Newbies #1 - All About the Cards
The Tarot is not just a divinatory tool, but it can also be utilized in the appropriately trained hands as a tool for providing counsel and advice with which we can navigate life. It is an antique form of divination that predates popular psychology, but has been shown to have archetypal energies that work well from a Jungian perspective. Tarot becomes a book of wisdom offering you a living parable or myth that reflects your life journey in the hands of the right Diviner. It describes a journey that mirrors your path in life. Usually the story is a direct description of what is going to happen in a particular window of time although talented readers can tell you much more than that from looking at the symbols in the cards! One of the main purposes of the use of the cards is to construct a future narrative so that you can make decisions to change your fate.
Animal Spirits: Power Animals and Guides
We shamans are a strange breed.....often we tend to isolate ourselves from those around us. However, this does not mean we don't have relationships..........in fact we often have too many to handle at any one time. You see, we are connecting to many levels of reality and inter-relating with all of them at the very same time. So while we are in a group of people....we are also talking to the spirit world and often the animal guides all at once. It's a difficult balancing act..to say the least. Often we must decide which is the most important communication at that point in time. Sometimes the animal spirit guides are giving us very critical data, so we choose to stay focused on that for the moment.
One More Mile
I want to share with you something that happened to me just a few weeks ago. There is a place that I go to write, read and to simply relax. This place is in the mountains along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The scenery is beautiful and I go and pray and take in God's beauty. I love it there because it is quiet and the only thing that I can hear is the chirping of birds and the wind. I embrace the silence. That's peculiar of me since most of my life has been classified by business and noise because I never wanted the silence. I was scared of it. Months later, I love it.
Conquer Your Fears
I cringed lower into the seat of my grey metal desk, yearning for the faded yellow floor to swallow me into oblivion. A crimson heat spread from my forehead to my neck; my legs trembled uncontrollably. I struggled to bring my lurching stomach under control - vomiting all over my classmates was about the only thing that could worsen this nightmare.
