From Stuck to Transformed: a Worldwide Journey of Self-Discovery Tuesday, July 26th, 2016
By Russell Heath
Let me tell you the story of my own stuckness. It starts in Tel Aviv, which, in 1980 when I was there, was a dysenteric’s paradise: It had public restrooms on every other block—the limit of my range.
I’d been a year and a half overseas—first in Italy, then, in the fall of 1979, I dropped down to Africa, crossed the Sahara, navigating the sands by compass. I traveled east through the jungles and onto the savannas of Kenya and Tanzania. From those great plains, I headed north across the eastern Sahara traveling old camel routes on the backs of open trucks.
Africa at that time was a place where you could still have adventures; where the reach of modernity was tentative, where life was raw, disease ridden, almost always difficult, and sometimes violent....
The Science of Happiness (It’s more than an art; it’s a science.) Tuesday, June 28th, 2016
By Gregg Sanderson
“There is no path to happiness: Happiness IS the path.”— Gautama Buddha
Peace, love, and happiness are yours for the taking, along with a long, healthy life. Stress kills, suffering is no fun, and misery sucks. It all has a single cause, and you have full control over it.
Last month we introduced a new paradigm for emotions: “Stimulus —> NEED —> Response.” The response no longer depends on a change in the stimulus. NEED is the ONLY cause of...

The Fire of HAPPINESS
Ah, sweet happiness! When you feel, express, embody, and experience this light and lovely state of being, all most certainly is right with the world. Life has more sparkle. Things that once ruffled your feathers seem inconsequential. There is a soft breeze of music that fills your moments with a sense of serenity and contentment that then gives way to waves of bliss and ecstasy. It is the pot of gold at the end of every rainbow, yet it is also the...
Healing Your Spirit: Say YES! to Your Soul Friday, May 27th, 2016
By Sarah Sparks
What if we had the opportunity to fall asleep one night and awake to knowing our soul’s true path? All we had to do next was to say YES to all the opportunities we were given throughout the next several days, and by saying YES we would jumpstart a healing journey for our spirit. Well friends, it happened to me just a few months ago.
During meditation, I was told that during sleep I would experience dreams and visions where my soul would reveal its path to me. In order...
The Science of Intuition by Doreen Virtue Tuesday, April 26th, 2016
By Doreen Virtue and Robert Reeves
Our intuition is an inner voice that speaks with an essence of love. As we connect to that loving energy, we feel supported. We feel relaxed and safe, knowing that everything happening at this moment has a greater purpose.
Begin with those small calls to action, the ones that say, Today reach out your friend—because who knows what that friend is going through at this moment? Understand that those gut feelings, and that sense of urgency behind them, may very well be lifesaving for that dear loved one of yours.
If you “hold on” to that intuitive guidance, it’s like a mail carrier receiving a parcel and refusing to deliver it. If you keep it to yourself, only one person is going to benefit from it, and that’s you....
UNconditional Dreams and Desires Tuesday, April 26th, 2016
By Natalie Rivera
Everything we want is because we believe it will make us feel the way we desire: good, or at least better. Everything.
And this is why desire has a bad reputation. Some even believe that desire is the root of suffering. This is true, but only if you define desire as “wanting something you don’t have.” Yes, that would feel like suffering. So, when we desire something, why does that feeling of “wanting” feel bad? Because we believe we must obtain certain wanted...
The Fierce Me: An Immigrant’s Journey to Self-Empowerment Wednesday, March 30th, 2016
By Mahal Hudson
This story starts in the year 2000, when I decided to impulsively restart my life in the wake of a broken relationship. I was naive but full of promise, and this opportunity turned out to be a “Golden Ticket” to travel into a world of great possibilities and opportunities—one that I could not even fully imagine at that time. You see, I came from a third-world country. I didn’t’ really fully comprehend what it meant to live in the Western world. “Disney World truly does exist!” I gasped, upon arrival.
I came to Canada from the Philippines 13 years ago to heal my broken heart, but I now know that this event was simply the catalyst to send me into flight—and I have soared high into a whirlwind of magical failures and awesome adventures. Along the...
