The eye of a hurricane is a relatively calm center, with clear skies overhead. The outer areas of the storm circulate around the eye, stirring up content and bringing movement, chaos and darkness to the forefront. The metaphor of a hurricane is a useful picture to describe the evolution of consciousness. To find our own peaceful center in the midst of the seeming chaos of the outer world is one benefit of spiritual practice.
The various storms of our lives provide us with some practice. A ‘storm” can be a health problem, a career setback, relationship pain or financial distress. These personal ‘weather systems’ teach us about our own priorities and help us cultivate inner wisdom. Life’s lessons initially hone our coping skills and indirectly impart an intangible quality, self-trust. Trust is the intangible sense that in spite of the challenge at hand, ‘all is well’.
Spiritual practice offers us inner peace and resilience without the need for a storm! The ultimate preparedness action you can take is to deepen your conscious connection to Divine Trust.

This is when our self-trust must be firm and without doubts. This is when our spiritual tenacity is called forward to lead us through. Sometimes when we are at our most tender moments, it is our friends and family that try to call us back to the old patterns! Well-meaning beings who are not on the same journey, are...Read More »
You are commanding the light right now, whether you know it or not! Why not do this more consciously?
Many people talk about manifesting abundance, co-creating and the Law of Attraction. There are many methods that enhance your capacity to consciously manifest . And, there are indeed “laws” that describe how consciousness can be applied.
For example, there is truth in the phrases: “What you focus on expands” and “what you resist will persist”. These laws offer basic training, inviting each of us to pay attention to our lives. It can be useful to reflect on what is growing/expanding in your life?
