Awareness: Learning Love's Language.

Image
“Real love" - "This kind of love is emotional in nature but not obsessional.  It is a love that unites reason and emotion. It involves an act of the will and requires discipline, and it recognizes the need for personal growth.” 
― Gary Chapman


Last week I attended a lecture by Dr. Gary Chapman. He is the author of the popular book, which has sold ten million copies titled The Five Love Languages. I was pleased to find Dr. Chapman to be extremely animated and hilarious. He discussed love of course, and the ways people communicate their love to each other. Over the many years as a marriage counselor, he discovered there are five ways couples communicate their love. 
They are:

Words of Affirmation
Acts of Service
Receiving Gifts Quality Time
Physical Touch
If you are curious about what your main language is you can take the quiz here. You will be pleasantly surprised at what your results will be. And it will help you to communicate love more effectively with not only your signifi…

Spiritual Awareness: The Truth About Oneness.

“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.”
― Herman Melville

When I read Maria Shriver’s M-Powered piece for the week, I was pleasantly surprised. Just as she, I was oddly deeply moved on the thirteenth anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 attacks. I usually take a moment to cover all my social media pages with a memorial of sorts to honor the innocent victims who lost their lives that day.
I am not sure why but I started crying the night before the anniversary and on my way to work the day of. All day I lived in this place of melancholy and mourning. Then to take matters to a whole other level, I subjected myself to hours of footage that evening, reliving the days that has changed so many lives.
As I was sitting in tears watching people retelling their stories of that fateful day, I asked myself, “Why was I doing this?” And s…

Spiritual Awakening: Thoughts on Shifting!

Image
Everyone has an opportunity to raise their awareness. It’s not limited to a few. It’s a choice. If you choose to make the effort, there is a tremendous amount of support to get you there.
The thing is most people don’t really realize they are “asleep” until they “awaken” and in truth many will meet resistance within the Self when they even consider waking up. And they have reason to be skeptical and to raise the question: “Is this the latest New Age craze?”
It’s not anyone’s job to encourage or force an awakening on others, however this experience is somewhat unique and that is why many people are sharing what is changing in their lives. As one person makes the shift, it creates a shift in others. Because we are all connected, you will feel the effects. So whether or not you want to awaken, you will feel that there is something happening to you on some level. It is openness and lack of fear that allows for a full spiritual awakening.
You will either start shifting by association (y…

Awareness: Collective Observation -What's Happening NOW!

Image
“A lot is happening. But you won’t see it if you are living in the past or fretting about the future.
Once you sit in the Moment of Now, in this moment you’ll start to wonder:
What IS this life I am living all about and is it really good to my soul?” -DPM


Today, people are becoming more aware of what is in front of them and are acting with decisiveness. If you don’t have a clear vision or an idea of what you want in life, or the experience you want to have, then you are going to falter through the rest of your existence. If you don’t have the courage to take a risk, then you will lose. If you are not brave enough to speak up, you will lose your voice. If are afraid to move forward and grow, you may lose your place.

Recent conversations with friends and strangers alike have really opened my eyes to the pace at which people are grasping the importance of living and acting NOW. The energy that is motivating many is growing. The shift that people are feeling in their lives is very real.…
