One thing I would do if I had kiddos: read or listen to stories together that awaken values and virtues like empathy, compassion and kindness...like this audiobook (above/left) that I am looking forward to getting for my three nephews.
Advancements in technology have made it easier than ever to create a home-based biz. And with just 50% of the planet online (as of 2017), many fortunes are yet to be made.
However, if you're like me, you're part of the growing throng of humans that are attracted to working location independently... because you can:
A while back, I was thinking about getting a reiki initiation.
Then, out of nowhere, a mentor said to me: "Please don't get a reiki initiation. I know an older women who has cancer, is getting reiki, and it is hindering, not helping."
And then my teacher of 15 years said, "Reiki doesn't help, its just ego”.
Since then I have had several years to reflect on the question, "What is healing anyway?" And "Is reiki healing?"
Intuition is natural to all of us. Men have it and women have it too. It is a spontaneous inner knowing,
and it is your best friend.
Here in this article I will share some tips to increase your intuition, as well as illuminating some of the pitfalls that arise in working to live more intuitively.
"Don't create a business, create a mission, then build a business from your mission."
To make money, you need to serve someone. To make a lot of money, serve a lot of people, or serve a few high-paying people really well.
Find a need, and fill it. What do you notice is missing in the world?
Or that you could do better?
My sister and I both grew up in North Vancouver, a very straight suburb of Vancouver populated by mostly middle and higher income families.
But when we spoke recently, she was calling from LA. And what she said to me was, "Everyone here is into astrology!! Its like the first thing they ask you! It's freaky..." She was definitely not impressed by this. My sister is in her 30's at the time of writing the this, and is a very capable young women. I wouldn't be impressed either. In this blog I'll go first into the positives of astrology, then the negatives.
I've put the most important ones at the top:
CBD Oil - by far the most important one on this list, which is why I have already written 2 blogs on CBD oil, and have another one coming! For some people, ALL they do is take CBD oil once or twice a day, and they see a great reduction in anxiety, pain, inflammation, and sometimes even their mood lifts (helps relieve depression, and sleep improves. Yes, really! Plus CBD has other benefits, like to the brain and in cancer-prevention. See my blog CBD: the Great Brain and Body Healer for more. In that blog you'll also learn how to choose a high quality CBD oil.
That said, we live in a world of choice. We are always either participating in Giving (higher nature, Love, selflessness), or taking (lower nature, fear, selfishness...astral illusion). Not just in our actions but also in our thoughts and emotions - our states of being.
And we evolve from lower to higher nature over many, many lifetimes.

Now and then, I might have a drink, I won't have a glass of alcohol in my hand all day. But that's what we're doing with sugar."

Cannabis as a Medicine is Now Getting a Lot of Attention. But What About Cannabis as a Sacrement?
As a meditator, I find cannabis to be especially helpful, when used with respect and moderation, to help me experience states of deep love, peace, and illumination. But what does Cannabis as a Sacrament really mean? for meditators, for yogi's and for society as a whole?
It's been tried in parts of Canada, and parts of Europe. The Green Party has a form of it in their plan, and Elon Musk says it will likely be forced into being as robots take over more and more jobs and replace human workers. It's been called Universal Basic Income, Guaranteed Living Allowance, and Mincome.
It would go to everyone, but it would start by going to the under-waged. It means giving each person in Canada about $1400/mo, enough money to afford housing, food, clothes and medicine. And with no strings attached, and no obligation to seek work. It would replace welfare and disability with one new program, the GLA/UBI.
But some say "Everyone will become lazy!" and "Where will that money come from anyway?"
So have they all gone nuts? Or do they know something we don't?
Meditation is mostly about the breath.
To me, meditation should feel good. It is a time of relaxing, coming home to yourself, and allowing yourself to rest.
Here are my top tips for helping make meditation an enjoyable experience:
First, give yourself a quiet and beautiful space. Make it warm if you're cold, open a window if you're hot. Stretch for a minute or two, to get your body more relaxed.
