2015.. an 8 year!

by Administrator on January 1, 2015

The powerful 8 year is here, and January 1st is a one day. How cool. It’s actually a 10 day, the Wheel of Fortune. What auspicious numbers to start the year. Be prepared for opportunity. Center and get ready set go!

An 8 year will have us in a balancing act collectively. There will be a lot that will come together, and it will likely be fast and fierce. As a group, if we can come together and make adjustments in the moment when things occur before things get lost and we get distracted, we will swiftly move forward. A good thing to remember is to communicate directly and with lightning speed. Don’t get mired in minutiae, and keep things balanced. Act boldly and powerfully. Remember Ben Franklin, who warned about the danger of procrastinating. He’s a great example for this year. Check out his advice.

The last week of the year

by Administrator on December 30, 2014

Take some time before the new year even starts to take stock and reflect on the past year. Take a breath and exhale last year. Instead of a resolution, re-solve what is incomplete. Shining awareness here will open new possibilities.

This is a sober approach to the New Year before the champagne, so you don’t drag the old stuff with you! Instead of just hoping that things will be different or better, sit with yourself and reflect on the past year. It can be brief.

Take this opportunity, while the whole world is positioning itself, to acknowledge and remember where you’ve been, what worked, and where you realize you can do better. There may be many little things that you forgot to celebrate. You are looking at this as an observer so no judgement. With this commitment you will land right into the present moment. Just be with it all as it is. It’s like remembering scenes from a movie that you were in, and now you are watching.

Certainly write down what needs completion. You are facing yourself, and it’s very grounding. Alleviate the overwhelm and pressure of looking ahead by giving this practice its due. It’s a simple task that helps you find your own rhythm. What comes naturally is what you want to experience next year, and you can schedule and be on your way.

You can share some insights with your partner if you’d like, and see what is motivating both of you for the next year. That can be a courageous conversation.

As I did this I sat with anything that was troubling me so I could get a better perspective. So be done with it all, breath out and let go.

Fridays, day to recap and celebrate

March 7, 2014

So much of our time is preparation, so much is routine, and so much retrospect, that the path of a man’s genius contracts itself to a very few hours. -Ralph Waldo Emerson Interested in traditional medicine? Folk medicine is seen as alternative, even though it’s older and stores great wisdom. We are going to look [...]

Get Ready

December 22, 2013

Get yourself ready, and do your work. Sit in quiet contemplation, and stillness. Cast the net of your intentions beyond. See what you want. Prepare. Rather than being a slave to worry, be a warrior to certainty. Slaying the demons as they arrive. You alone are in charge of this. It’s time. No need to [...]

Why East West living?

December 16, 2013

It solves a problem for me. Forever I’ve been motivated and dedicated to some sort of spiritual calling, and teachings. I have taken some so literally that I’ve missed opportunities, here and now. I’ve thrown the baby out with the bathwater. Living more in those ideals. I’m aware that in the Biggest picture, you can’t [...]

Stick with it…

February 24, 2013

Currently attention spans are miniscule, as is happiness and peace of mind. When we stick with something- see it through, have integrity, complete it, even if it’s a mood, its power over us diminishes. That’s what I did. I sat still. It was a turning point as I had been physically and mentally running everywhere. [...]

February 15, 2013

A little story: I met a man years ago in NYC, Howard Wills, he looked like a golfer. A good ole boy from the south. Well, he was a Buddha. This is what he taught: You have to clean your mirror. How do we gauge our outer projection, albeit badly or incorrectly?  Likewise, there is [...]
