Falling Into The Trap Of Being “Good”

We grow up being told to be the "good girl", "the good boy" and when we aren't "good" in the eyes of authority we are punished in some way - either through shame, avoidance, anger or some form of discipline whether it is physical or emotional. It is programmed into us at the very beginning: …

Living in Harmony

There are natural laws operating within us and all around us. Intuitively we know about them and try to work with them, but when we become imbalanced all harmony goes out the window.

Moving Toward Forgiveness

The burden, the crushing weight of carrying old pain. Over time, it becomes less noticeable, as it becomes something we are accustomed to carrying. We don’t even notice how heavy we have become.

It's been presented in a very dark and twisted way. But it's not like that at all! Magic is mystical but it is positive and there are rules …

What’s with all the F***ing Happy People?

So many spiritual people emphasize gratitude, I know myself as well have endorsed it.
