I saw a craft pass overhead last night. I was outside, it was around 8ish, and I was looking up at the stars overhead as I walked through my yard with my dogs. It was so clear! Then I noticed that one star was moving. I stopped, it kept going. Not an aircraft, it was… Continue reading Increased Clarity in Spiritual Messages
Spirituality and Real Life are not mutually exclusive. You can intertwine the two to enrich your day-to-day life, and expand your consciousness. I talked about mindfully following the breath in this post. The breath is the foundation. When life gets in the way – and it will – just come back to the breath. Maybe… Continue reading Can You Be More Spiritual But Also Have a Real Life?
We get so wrapped up in the day-to-day that it’s easy to let spirituality slip to the side, if you even consider it for half a moment. Most people say they don’t have time to exercise, let alone the luxury of contemplating their own consciousness and place in the Universe. Think you don’t have time… Continue reading Meditation Now!
I had a totally different post planned to put up, but then I found this trailer on Twitter. Have your tissues ready. I watched this and thought it one of the most heartwarming trailers I'd seen. It's based on the book of the same title by W. Bruce Cameron and it spent 52 weeks on… Continue reading Our Pets and Reincarnation
I think it was the Dalai Lama who said "Compassion is my religion." It really resonated with me. I tried my best to follow it, in what I thought were trying times. There was a co-worker who really tested my resolve on the path of compassion. This was an all-around unpleasant person - to me,… Continue reading Dragged Into Compassion
I loved the movie Galaxy Quest. . I loved it in all its cheesy glory. I mean, we all know what it wasn't, right? It wasn't exquisite art or high drama. It wasn't an Academy Award contender. It was quite unashamedly escapist entertainment. Every cliche, every nod to some other sci-fi production, they all generated… Continue reading Life Lessons in Unexpected Places
Even the little critters have decorated for the holidays. My spider friends have glammed up their homes with crystals and turned their webs to delicate lace. I'm not much of a Christmas person; for most of my professional life Christmas and other holidays have simply been another day on the job. I have lots of… Continue reading Finding That Christmas Spirit
It's that most wonderful time of the year. No I don't mean Christmas! Halloween! Yep, you're all nodding your heads and smiling right now. If you're a paranomo-phile (yes, I made up that word) you love this time. The veil between the worlds thins out and we all hope for that contact, a brush with… Continue reading Cat Ghosts And Halloween
The tour guide was only half kidding when she said "We aren't responsible if any of the ghosts follow you home." It brought back memories of The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland. I could almost hear the sonorous tones of the heavy male narrator's voice from the ghostly Disney ride override the tour guide uttering the… Continue reading Ghost Hunting Part Two – The Ghost That Followed Us Home
Hub and I went on a Ghost Tour last weekend. I love that sort of thing, and his daughter gave us a gift certificate for the tour for Christmas. We were lucky it wasn't raining, but cold and foggy, which gave the perfect atmosphere. Just the history part made the tour worthwhile, but we made… Continue reading Weird Weekend – Modern Ghost Hunting Part One
