The Pretense of Perfection

July 6, 2010

While you discern that life is unfolding perfectly as you walk your spiritual path, you do not make the egotistical, spiritually arrogant assumption that you yourself are perfect.

There is no worse sickness for the soul, o you who are proud, than this pretense of perfection.

On a soul level, of course, you are indeed perfect, but your spiritual development in the physical world requires (more…)

Every Act of Kindness Is Noticed By the Universe

May 15, 2010

As you evolve into an instrument of God’s love, your mere presence becomes an act of service.

In turn, every advance that we make in our awareness benefits unseen multitudes and strengthens the next step for others to follow. Every act of kindness is noticed by the universe and is preserved forever.
Dr. David R. Hawkins

Others will be divinely directed to cross your path so that your beacon of love can set their flickering lantern ablaze.

Thousands of candles can be (more…)

Your Heart Can Heal the World

September 30, 2009

two-hands-holding-a-glowing-heartI had no idea that Jennifer, a woman I had just met, would be the catalyst for an incredibly powerful and moving experience.

Right before the lunch break in Dr. Ibrahim Jaffe’s workshop on Sunday, he asked us to choose a partner for an exercise in sending love. Jennifer was sitting closest to me so we partnered up, adjusting our chairs so that we were facing each other knee to knee. Per Ibrahim’s instructions, I began sending loving energy to Jennifer, who was supposed to describe what she was feeling.

Years before, I had participated in a similar exercise in a Reiki II class, an experience that erased any skepticism I had about my (more…)

Bathed in Loving Energy in Encinitas

August 13, 2008

The SRF Encinitas Temple

I first visited Encinitas, California, in June 2000 as part of the annual Self-Realization Fellowship Convocation. When I walked into the SRF temple where dozens of devotees were silently meditating, I was immediately enveloped in thick, palpable loving energy. I stopped in my tracks, transfixed. I wanted to stay right where I was, rooted to the ground, and let this incredible energy wash over me for hours. I forced myself to sit in a pew but was too (more…)

My Reiki Breakthrough!

August 12, 2008

I had always loved the concept of hands-on healing so I was excited to learn Reiki. As a massage therapist, I had always visualized universal healing energy flowing through me, concentrating in my hands, then flowing into the other person. And that, I learned, was the essence of Reiki!

For the first exercise in my Reiki Two class, the sixteen students split into eight pairs. Dee, the teacher, instructed those of us who chose to be “senders” to transmit healing energy (Choku Rei’s in Reiki terminology) to our partners, starting with our third eye to their third eye. I got impatient so I began firing off Choku Rei’s to my partner Jamie’s third eye before Dee gave us the green light. After a bit, I directed the energy to her heart, then elsewhere, and eventually back to her third eye.


Turning Adversaries Into Allies

August 6, 2008

coworkers-talking-smilingI loved my job but one of my coworkers didn’t like me much. I dreaded running into her—her disdain was almost palpable. But what bothered me more was knowing there was someone in the world whose mere presence made me tense.

Then it hit me. If I couldn’t change the way she felt about me, I would change the way I felt about her. I decided to change the energy between us by bathing her in love every time I saw her. The next time I encountered her in the hallway, I sent her loving energy from my heart and envisioned her surrounded by light and love.  

Such a simple shift in perspective made a world of difference! Instead of dreading the sight of her, I now looked forward to seeing her! That constant source of tension disappeared and I was free to fearlessly roam the halls once again.

Did she treat me any differently? Hard to say. I do think her attitude softened a bit. The point was, her attitude no longer affected me. And on some level, I know without question that the loving energy I sent her way had a healing effect. After all, that’s what loving energy does.
