Lately so many of my clients and Blog-Buddies have been loving their lives as never before. And the reason is simple. They are learning to commit to their human lives, relish the moment and savor the juicy details. They have become increasingly effective, playing in the realms of speech and action.
This is the glory of human life in the Age of Aquarius. If we stay interested in human life, without trying to fancy it up with energies, we can make that human life GREAT.
In this new age, with its different vibrational patterns, it has become so easy for us to move our awareness away from the human…

My choice would be Stephanie Meyer, the world-wide best selling author of The Twilight Saga Book Series.
I personally ADORE the whole series. Yes, I read all four books and was already on that gravy train BEFORE any of the movies came out but I was particularly interested in how Stephanie came up with the premise for the series.
She claims it came to her in a dream. More specifically, Chapter 13, the “meadow scene” from Twilight was her exact dream and she wrote the rest of the series around that pivotal scene. But I digress.
I am fascinated to find out what her “Magnetize Money” Snapshot looks like!
Relevant links for aura reading have been moved to the end of today’s article.
Magnetize Money Profile of Stephanie Meyer
Root Chakra Databank for Earning Money
Out to the moon. Stephanie is very tied into the astral world. She has a strong, integrated connection to it. Although this chakra databank is about being human, the bestselling author’s version is unusual that way. Actually any chakra databank about human life can function in a way that shows allegience to astral life. Exactly what is happening here! CONTINUE READING →
If you care about being a spiritual person, life can be way confusing. What does it mean to be spiritual? Lately we have been exploring this in a series of articles.
Comments coming in today have alerted me that many of you Blog-Buddies may be confusing several different things when evaluating what is spiritual and what isn’t.
As an Enlightenment Coach, might I recommend you that you learn to separate these three categories?
1. Authentic spiritual experience
I’ll define that as authentically, really, truly having a direct experience of the Divine.
Who decides when someone is authentically connecting to the Divine?
Personally, everybody has the right to an opinion. Besides that, various belief systems about religion can define spiritual experiences in ways that belong — to my thinking — in the second category. Or the third. So please keep reading. CONTINUE READING →
“As a kid, he was one of my favorite authors. He writes science fiction and fantasy and is probably best known for Ender’s Game. But he also spouts horrible homophobic rhetoric.
“This baffles me because his novels contain such nuanced explorations of being different, bullied, and even of close same-gender friendships. On a wider level, he always plays with the idea of the hero and the villain and how someone can call himself a hero while their actions are capable of a very different interpretation from another point of view.
“That difference doesn’t equal evil is one of his main points, and I cannot fathom how he could write the books he has and turn around and say what he does about LGBT people.”
Blog-Buddies, it has been more than 30 years since I read anything by this exceptionally prolific novelist. I used to love his work, too.
And now, between the shenanigans in Indianapolis related to same-sex marriage and my recently seeing the magnificent film “The Imitation Game” — the issue of simple fairness for gays and lesbians is very much on my mind. CONTINUE READING →
In Comment 11, Blog-Buddy JULIE shared how inspired she was by an interview with the Irish dancer Michael Flatley. He talked about how much resistance other people had to his choice of career. People wanted him to give up dancing, and his father wanted him to go into the construction business. At one point in the interview he said “Everybody’s got an opinion on what you should do. It’s what’s inside yourself that counts.”
By contrast, in Comment 16, Blog-Buddy RACHEL wrote, “I can’t help thinking that for every 100 people who want to be dancers, who feel it deep in their soul, only 1 of them is going to make it. The rest probably WOULD be better off going into construction (or some other alternative).” And she added another great comment that you can read for yourself as Comment #28. (I recommend you read that whole thread, either before or after today’s article. So many heartfelt depth comments! Really, comments from you Blog-Buddies are such a lively, wise source of information here at the blog.)
Both JULIE and RACHEL are right. Today’s article aims to add more perspective on making wise choices by adding the perspective of — what else — deeper perception.
Common Sense First, Please
Pay attention to objective reality, little things like how many people you know who make a living at dance compared to how many take dance classes, major in dance instruction in college, etc. RACHEL’s example of 1 in 100 was a try in the right direction. I’d guess 1 in 10,000. Do any of you Blog-Buddies know, realistically, the odds of earning a living as a professional dancer? CONTINUE READING →
Let’s play advice columnist today, Blog-Buddies. I’ll add my bit and then you can add your responses in the form of comments. Even if Carolyn doesn’t read any of them. (Sure, I will send her a link, but Carolyn Hax must receive about a zillion emails per day.)
Here was the original question from “Name Change”
“I’m in my 40s and heading to graduate school for a completely different career. I’ve always hated my first name — it sounds great for a child but does not transfer very well as a professional name. I’d like to change it as I embark on my new direction but I feel silly being my age and sounding like I’m having an identity crisis. Thoughts?” CONTINUE READING →
Well I, for one, am so glad to be nearing completion of our 6-part series about how to deal with difficult people, with insight from reading people deeper. That series began here.
Important and practical? Sure. Yet the topic isn’t exactly pure joy.
And hey, today is our first day of spring (in this hemisphere) (that didn’t begin with an eclipse).
I could stand some inspiration, and maybe you can too. Besides, who doesn’t really, really like Tom Hanks? Beloved as the A-lister is, maybe he hasn’t always felt that comfortable being Tom. Not so comfortable as he clearly is now. Let’s find out. CONTINUE READING →
Truth be told, I’m more familiar with a naughty pleasure, Kate McKinnon’s imitations of the superstar on “Saturday Night Live.” That’s all the Justin Bieber I have witnessed for years. Rather than, for instance, following him on Twitter (where he has 56.6 million followers). No malice intended toward the young singer. Just about anything Kate McKinnon does on “Saturday Night Live” makes me laugh really hard.
Yet the guy is still pulling in the moolah, and so I’ll lead off with Justin Bieber while pursuing our latest theme of wondering, “What makes some people tick?”.
The big-deal singer just had a birthday, March 1. Making him just 21. Think you could have handled all that celebrity any better than he has? CONTINUE READING →
