I was offered a complimentary astrology reading recently. I have a variety of feelings about astrology: On the one hand, it makes sense to me that the configuration of planets at the moment of my emergence into physical form would somehow reflect a vibratory resonance to the nature of my own personality quirks. On the other, I don’t understand how planetary formation can open the book into foretelling my future…or my past, for that matter. In this regard, I give full trust only to my own sense of “truth” and “rightness” of any conjecture made by the passing of planets through my “orbit.” But, hey, a free reading…I’m willing to give my time for the possibility of an opening into new insights and deepening understandings.
So, I listened, and it was all very entertaining. Who doesn’t love a block of time just about themselves? I know, right? Like finding out that I have, not only the same birthday as Edgar Cayce, but also the same rising sign and moon in the same sign as him. I don’t really know what it means, but it’s pretty cool, right? There was one area, though–and that’s really what this article is about–that engaged my mind to a new level of reflection.

Most of us keep a few. We call it our right to privacy or nobody else’s business. We tell ourselves it’s too complex for other’s to understand; perhaps we fear the judgement that accompanies the lack of understanding. Most of us believe we are successful at keeping some aspect of our experience a secret. It’s the nature of the belief that we are all separate, distinct and engaged only through the five senses of our physicality, that lends power to the idea that we can keep secrets.
The good news is: this belief is as accurate as the belief that the world is flat is accurate. The bad news is for the secret-keepers: in the subtle realms of emotion and thought, we are all connected; secrets are impossible. Continue reading “Secrets And Conscious Awareness – How Life Works”
“What’s done is done.” That’s what my momma told me. As a child, it was a concept bigger than my young mind could hold. Now, with decades of experiences behind me I understand.
There are words spoken in anger, and meant only to express distress, that can never be erased. They were said; and, reaching their target, linger long after the outburst. There are actions taken – to get even – that create more animosity rather than settling any score. There are the choices made that cause pain to others. There are those of us bearing the scars of someone else’s choices that cause us to speak and act in hurtful ways.
The list is endless, and the cycle can repeat forever.
For many years, I sat in a rocker and listened to individuals and couples and families describe past pains and the way they felt stuck in the repetitiion of hurting. I listened, and I watched as these patterns became the defining points of their personalities and character. Over time, I realized that the clients who spent the most time reliving and thinking about the harm done them in the past took the longest to find solutions in their present circumstance. And the people less inclined to delve and analyze were the easiest to help focus into the changes they desired.
They embody my mother’s early teaching: “What’s done is done.” Continue reading “Make Peace with the Past to Change the Future – Forgive”
This note is for you, my friend (and you know who you are).
I see you. Not your education nor the Life experiences that shape your perspective. I see you.
Peel away the layers of opinion. Wipe away the distortions of the personality that settle like grime on glass. Take away the defensive stances and declarations for limitation. Release the impulse to hide behind any of it.
Because I see you.
Clear and fresh, flowing like a mountain spring. Your clarity refreshes me and nourishes my sensibilities. Continue reading “I See You – the Clear Field of Ho’oponopono”
There are many versions of the ancient Polynesian practice, Ho’oponopono. This one is not those.
This version is what happens when a Jungian therapist/Meditation teacher who studies law of attraction decides she wants to fit the practice of Ho’oponopono into her daily ‘western civilization’ Life. There is also a broad worldview associated to the practice. You can search Google to read about it (or wait until I feel inspired to reflect upon it; >) That’s my disclaimer, and the rest is my $.02 to spend as you will.

OK, here we go.. First off, pick one of these shapes:
square triange circle squiggle
The shape you pick… the one that just popped out at you and into your head (without knowing it’s meaning; >) represents your core values. There is often another shape that you will resonate to when you hear its description; this would be your secondary shape. Continue reading “Fun and Easy Personality Game”
