Life, Love, and a New Moon in LibraWe may be beset with all kinds of desires, passions, certainties and non-negotiables at the moment. Ice cold clarity is in the air.

From Darkness Into Light: This Solar Eclipse is a Wake-Up CallThis solar eclipse highlights the adventure of living in the material world whilst embracing the unseen realms of energy and essence.

Our Sacred Duty to Choose Well: The Message of Mercury Retrograde in Virgo

Our Sacred DutyIf there are difficult conversations to be had, the next three weeks may just be the time to have them, even though Mercury retrograde is usually characterised as bad for communication.

Could We One Day Heal The Mind By Taking Control Of Our Dreams?

Could We One Day Heal The Mind By Taking Control Of Our Dreams?About 50 per cent of us will at some point in our lives experience “waking up” and being conscious while still in a dream – possibly, we may even be able to act with intention in it. Such “lucid dreams” are not only a vivid and memorable experience for the dreamer, they are also of huge interest to neuroscientists and psychologists.

How Ability To Control Dreams May Unravel The Mystery Of Consciousness

 Sleep paralysis. My Dream, My Bad Dream, 1915. Fritz Schwimbeck/wikimediaWe spend around six years of our lives dreaming – that’s 2,190 days or 52,560 hours. Although we can be aware of the perceptions and emotions we experience in our dreams, we are not conscious in the same way as when we’re awake. This explains why we can’t recognise that we’re in a dream and often mistake these bizarre narratives for reality.

What One Sees Without Eyes

What One Sees Without EyesIn order to adapt to the world of the seeing, blind people are obliged to declare themselves unable to see — and, believe me, I know what I’m talking about, for that has happened to me even when I knew very well that it didn’t correspond to reality and was not true.

Seeing Auras Is Normal

Seeing Auras Is NormalSeeing colors is considered normal for sighted people. Yet, to the visually challenged, ordinary colors do not exist. Those who are blind to the auric field also have a disability, for seeing auric colors is as normal as seeing colors through the eyes. We are all born to perceive subtle energies.

Becoming One with Your Soul

Becoming One with Your SoulYou think you have a soul and your soul is separate from you. The truth is the opposite: your soul has you. Your soul (you) is attempting to master living in a three-dimensional physical reality in the same manner in which it lives in four-dimensional reality— with love and a deep sense of connection to everything. There never was any separation. It was an illusion.

Following The Path of Least Resistance

Following The Path of Least Resistance“It seems to me that this dream, since you don’t believe it to be a vision of your future, could just be Spirit talking to you about your present moment in life. I don’t know much about your life, but have you recently traversed a difficult moment where you had to let go of things and surrender to a higher force? Have you had to burn away some beliefs and venture into an unknown land?”

Sensing, Understanding, and Using the Flow of Energy

Sensing, Understanding, and Using the Flow of EnergyEnergy and its flow is being unconsciously experienced by everyone, all of the time. We are all surrounded and impacted by the action and movement of energy twenty-four hours a day. When the hair raises a bit on your arms upon entering a room, you are experiencing the residual electromagnetic energy of an event that occurred there, or of a person who was once in that place.

Connecting with the Magic of Your Intuition

August 2015: Small Acts Carry Great Power and Profound Influence

August 2015: Small Acts and Tiny Steps Carry Great Power and Profound Influence‘Gently does it’ is probably the best advice for the coming month, not to be confused with ‘don’t do anything’, which is most definitely not!

August may begin to feel like something of a ‘back down to earth with a bump’ month!

Independently Entwined: Venus Retrograde 25th July – 6th September 2015Venus in Leo is flamboyant and demonstrative, passionate and radiant, but in the subtle shaping hands of Virgo she knows that the most reliable self-confidence is born of detailed self-knowledge: familiarity with the twists and turns of one’s psyche and their influence upon our well-being and relationships. When retrograde, Venus reveals the underbelly of those relationships...
