By | Emergence, Spiritual Growth | No Comments

August is upon us. A name that means ‘exalted, acclaimed, renowned,’ among other things. To live an ‘august’ life implies being bold, grand, powerful – even legendary.

You’re Already in Heaven

By | Emergence, Spiritual Growth | No Comments

We’re conditioned to believe that so many things have authority over us. Even well intentioned teachers convey the idea that you need some vitamin, energy practice, karmic clearing, or astrological adjustment to handle Mercury in retrograde — or you’ll suffer.
