The Soulful Life, Issue 4: “Peace is in Your Heart”

“Find peace in your heart and you will create peace in your life.” –Sue Krebs The Essence of Peace Is Within Your Heart by Susan M. Castle “We all sit in a circle and suppose while the secret sits in the center and Knows” –Robert Frost The Heart is an infinite source of Intelligence. Many people think that the mind is the most powerful source within us. We’ve been led to believe that the mind is responsible for most of our knowledge and wisdom. When in fact, your Heart is much more powerful than your brain, 5,000 times more powerful. The electromagnetic energy of the Heart has been described as a creative, connective energy that seems to hold everything together. The life force that flows through the Heart is the strongest connecting energy in the entire Universe. This life force energy, strong and constant, functions to allow the Heart to pump nutrients to the body and Spiritual energy to nourish the Soul. There is a magnificent Wisdom within each one of us, an infinite intelligence, that knows just what to do, when to do it and even how to do it. This infinite intelligence takes care of us, guides us and flows through our entire being. You have, deep within you, a place where your inner Wisdom flows in abundance. A Wisdom so true that it will never fail you. A Wisdom that knows how to return your body to its natural state of balance and inner peace in any given moment. This Wisdom is found within your Heart. In this very moment Wisdom is flowing through you as...
The Soulful Life, Issue 3: “Visualize It”

The Soulful Life, Issue 3: “Visualize It”

“Dare to visualize a world in which your most treasured dreams have become true.” –Ralph Marston The Ten Steps of Visioning by Lucia Capacchione, Ph.D., A.T.R. Step 1: Make a Wish The Visionary begins by deciding to explore new possibilities in some area of life, choosing a theme on which to focus. This is like the designer’s first step of getting an idea. The first step of Visioning poses the question: What do I want? What is my true heart’s desire? It might be: “A new career direction,” or “Finding a place to live,” or Finding a mate,” or “Making more money,” or “Getting healthier,” or “Making a film.” Some Visionaries choose a broader playing field, such as, “A projection of the year ahead,” or “What areas of my life need attention?” or “What does a balance between professional and personal life look life?” Other Visionaries want to resolve a specific problem or situation and do a “before” and “after” collage titled “How it looks now” and “How I’d like it to look.” Step 2: Search for Images and Words This is the designers research phase. The task here is to gather pictures, captions, and phrases from magazines, newspapers, catalogs, or other visual sources. One’s personal collection of snapshots, postcards, or greeting cards can also be used. In this phase, the Visionary is tearing, cutting, amassing a heart’s-desire image bank. The emphasis is on what experience she wants to create in her life rather than simply picturing stuff to be acquired. It is a way of exploring quality of life, living by choice instead of default. The only rule...

Living the Authentic Life

Daily Soul Retreat “The more honest you can be–with yourself and with others–about who you are and what you need to be fulfilled, the more likely you are to create a life that’s right for you. But excavating your truth may seem like a daunting task. With all the busyness of our everyday lives, self-reflection may seem self-indulgent. “I don’t have time to sit around contemplating my navel,” you might think. “I’ve got responsibilities to meet.” But that’s the irony. If we move as fast as we can down a path that leads us away from our true desires, we end up backtracking anyway, or going around in circles searching for the place that feels like home. When we don’t take the time to tune in to what’s best for us next, we actually waste time with many false starts and journeys that might otherwise be avoided. An authentic life is built from the inside out…with attention to one’s inner wisdom. Perhaps you could simply begin each day with a question: “What is important to me?” Or spend 20 minutes in meditation each morning, letting your inner voice surface. You might try 10 minutes of journaling every day for week, and then see what wisdom surfaces. Maybe you could take one weekend a month and retreat to nature for an hour or so where you could reflect on what kind of person you have become and what kind of person you aspire to be. To live authentically you need not spend two weeks on a mountaintop in Tibet (although that might be terrific too). You simply have to make...

Creating Life Change

Creating Life Change

“Nothing happens until the pain of staying the same outweighs the pain of change.” –Arthur Burt Creating Life Changes by Carol Adrienne, Ph.D. Despite the fact that we cannot help but change, we seem to have a constant yearning for things to be different in our life. My guess is that this focus on changing something in our life is a corollary of other ideas invisibly current in Western culture. For example, here in the United States, we place a high value on freedom—freedom, I suppose, to make changes when we want to make changes. We also place a high value on having, and having more, whether it is leisure time, money, quality time with the kids, or a bigger house. The desire for change often accompanies the feelings of wanting more of something or less of something else. For most, the idea of “creating life changes” seems productive and beneficial—maybe even good for the planet. The list of the changes we desire, of course, is endless. Unfortunately, as much as we dream of change, we are just as likely to feel inadequate to the task of making any change, be it changing careers, partners, body weight, or income brackets. This is called resistance, which we’ll talk about in a minute.

The truth is, it does! Every single day, and actually every moment and every breath you take is an opportunity to...
