Jennifer Hoffman – How do we overcome the challenges of our life lessons? When do we get to the point where they are no longer obstacles to our growth, transformation, and joy? What can we do to make that process happen so we can get on with this ascension journey and have the joyful, abundant, peaceful lives that we crave? The answer is simple – we re-purpose the energy of the lessons so rather than repeating the past, we create a new and different outcome in the present. Lessons do not go away; they just transcend the karma to create a new level of divinity.
While we want to ensure that we ‘learn our lessons’ in this lifetime, mainly because we don’t want to have to repeat the lessons again, we also want them to end because they are painful, difficult, and make us unhappy. So we slog through them hoping to overcome their karmic past and energy. And we do that by trying to get the other person or people to change – we try to heal them and think that this is what we’re supposed to do. Then once they are healed, the lessons are over and we can all move on. Continue reading “Overcome the Lesson by Re-Purposing the Energy”
“Every Cause has its effect; every Effect has its Causes; everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognised; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the Law.” – The Kybalion.
Elva Thompson – Man for the most part stumbles through life like a sleepwalker. He is unaware that for every thought and action he takes in his life there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Our thoughts are energetic charges of energy which resonate on the unseen world of cause and bounce back into the manifest physical world of effect. This is called the Law of Return and it is just to beggar and king alike.
Our thoughts and actions are either aligned with life (harmonious) or misaligned (inharmonious) and, as a result of our thinking our lives are either fulfilled or unfulfilled. The thoughts we entertain and the actions we take have consequences which are inevitable and cannot be retracted, bargained with or bought off.
In the words of Omar Khayyam: “The moving finger writes; and, having writ moves on: nor all thy piety or wit shall lure it back to cancel half a line, nor all thy tears wash out a word of it.” Therefore, man alone is the master of his own thinking and the maker and shaker of his destiny.

The Angels – You have celebrations scattered throughout the year. You have your holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and more. You celebrate births, commemorate deaths, and even have a holiday dedicated to playing jokes with one another. You have celebrations for the seasons, the equinox, the solstice.
If you think about it, the human race has been very good at finding reasons to appreciate and enjoy the special occasions in life!
Can you imagine a life where every day becomes a celebration – one in which you awaken and say, “Wonderful!! I have a day of life! I have resurrected into this precious body! I can bring joy, laughter, good food, or at least a great attitude into every moment today. I get to spend time with my human family, the brothers, sisters, aunts, and uncles of my soul! How can I create a day of joy of celebration?” Continue reading “Don’t wait to celebrate!”
Jennifer Hoffman – To what extent are we obligated to others’ well-being, happiness, and security and do we have a choice in our obligations? In this article, which answers a question asked by a reader, I bring up the idea that meeting this obligations is something we can choose to do, or not and sometimes the obligation we assume can be the excuses we need to not move forward with our own lives.
Dear Jennifer: It has taken me a long time but I’m learning to put my needs first. I am a single mother, with one daughter and I currently live with my mother, who is having many mental and health problems and is on lots of medications. My mother wants me to stay here with her, my daughter is the center of her world and her only motivation for living and although I want to leave, I am afraid that my mother won’t forgive me if I do, or she will ‘check out’. I don’t know what to do or where to turn now and while I feel like I need to move on, I need to take care of my mother and make sure she’s OK. Can you help me?

Nicole Hind – Recently a friend told me a story about taking her seven-year-old to the circus. It was a wonderful mother-daughter outing. Just the two of them, no pesky brothers or dad tagging along and getting in the way.
They had the best time. They watched acrobats and clowns and all manner of brand new delights, gasping at one another gleefully at every new feat. They bathed in each other’s company without interruption, laughing and having fun. Literally all the things.
After this magical afternoon, as the two of them were leaving, my friend’s daughter spied the merchandise stand and wanted her mum to buy her a plastic fairy wand. My friend gently but firmly said no. Continue reading “Life Is Better When We Focus on What We Appreciate, Not What’s Lacking”
Owen K Waters – In the Old Reality, things were seen as opposites – hot or cold, black or white, good or bad, this way or that way. In the expanded view of New Reality consciousness, life is seen in a unified way. Opposite sides of the coin are viewed, not as polar opposites, but rather as just being different aspects of the one coin.
In the New Reality view of the world, the opposite extremes of hot and cold become variable degrees of warmth. Black and white become, instead, endless shades of gray. Good and bad become different shades of human nature and these can be viewed without the judgment and fear that comes with Old Reality, polarized thinking. Continue reading “Destiny and Free Will”
