How to Leave Judgment Behind and Experience Compassion

When was the last time you judged someone or something based on limited information? A first impression? By something someone told you? It may have made you feel outraged or shocked. It might cause you to form an opinion in ways that are inaccurate and wastes lots of energy making sense of it or feeling that an injustice has been done. Exhausted from anger and resentment that the judgment created, it sucks energy that could be used to better purpose. The energy of judgment causes misunderstandings, false hatred, false love, and other misconceptions about people, places, things, and experiences. It …

The Importance of Being an Independent Thinker

These days it’s hard to know what to believe. The need to critically consider and personally investigate and analyze information is more important than ever. Each of us is charged with being our own authority, with seeking truth and then applying it in a way that is appropriate for our circumstances. It is essential that we develop our instincts that alert us to when something is off, when something may be a threat, and then dig a little deeper to validate or to disprove that feeling. “Freethinkers are those who are willing to use their minds without prejudice and without …

Using Compassion to Promote Peace in the World

by Diane Wing, M.A. With each new year comes hope that humanity learns from its mistakes of the previous year and that things are bound to get better. The optimistic view is to believe that all people have at least a glimmer of light within them, yet the incidents of hate crimes, abuse, animal cruelty, shootings, terrorism, and bullying continue. The recent news story about Chicago teens who tormented a special needs classmate brought this forward once again. Their mistreatment of a fellow student who thought they were his friends and their live streaming of the incident showed a blatant …

Achieve Patience Through the Power of Acceptance

How many times have you feverishly prayed for patience so that you could tolerate waiting for your plans to come to fruition, for that big break, or that right relationship?  Those who exemplify patience do not outwardly react to their frustration; they give no indication that they are anxious for their will to manifest.  Or we see those who patiently tolerate destructive relationships in their lives, waiting for the disruptive person to come around, realize they need to change, or allow someone to help them.  The patient person is resigned to what is.  But it need not stop there. To …

My Thrilling Love Affair with Books

My Thrilling Love Affair with Books A lifelong obsession With the exception of my grandparents’ black German Shepherd dog, books were my first love.  Before I was able to read, the magic of story time, the way the hardbacks decorated the shelves near the fireplace, and the mystery of what the words meant intrigued me.  It prompted me to want to learn to read, and thankfully, my journey began in preschool. My favorite Christmas gift was always a book.  I still have the giant size version of The Snow Queen and other tales that I was given when I was …

How to Use Trust to Increase Your Intuition

The most common roadblock in developing your intuition is a lack of self-trust. That is, not believing the messages when they come through. It just doesn’t seem possible that the divine download could be right. The task becomes differentiating between your regular thoughts and an actual intuitive message. Everyone has intuitive ability; it’s a matter of discovering the way your unique gift works and how to recognize intuitive guidance for what it is. Some “see” a vision, some “hear” a little voice, and others experience a “knowing” that comes gently into mind. At times, it may come through physically, as …

What Influences You?

The Emotional & Creative Impact of Your Surroundings Remember when your parents categorized your friends as those who were a good influence versus a bad one? As a teenager, it’s difficult to see how others impact your decisions and your mindset. In adulthood, it becomes more apparent that those you choose to have in our circle definitely hold sway on the choices you make and the way you feel. Awareness of how you feel around certain people and in particular circumstances is essential for understanding how they influence your life. This is just the tip of the iceberg, for everything …

It’s Waiting For You

When you look out on the road ahead, what do you see? Do you see the potential of what awaits or do you see the difficulties of the present that block the vision of the future? The troubles currently in your life may include financial issues, challenging relationships, or a lack of motivation. While staying in the present and focusing on the task at hand can be a valuable technique to clear the anxiety and address the issues before you, the proper use of anticipation motivates you toward the larger goal of creating your future.

Starting the New Year Right

Insight Stones Message for 2016 I asked for a message for us for 2016 and tossed the stones.  The photo above is the actual throw.  Given that I was asking for our entire community, I’m interpreting this from the perspective of the energies that are available to use this year and what we have the potential to manifest by taking appropriate action. The center of the board where it says “Insight Stones” is where the aspects of the stones landing here are likely to manifest.  Amazingly three stones landed here: Aventurine, which holds the energies of luck, money, health, and …
