EMBRACING the BULLY WITHIN

March 2018 AWAKENING FROM THE WOUNDED CHILD EMBRACING the BULLY WITHIN We usually think of a bully as someone outside of ourselves.  What about the one on the inside? We all live with a bully to a greater or lesser degree. The bully is that feeling that shows up when you begin to doubt yourself. Or, when you have a negative reaction to someone or something.  It is the inner critic who is ready to tell you what you should and shouldn’t do or feel.  It likes to remind you of your failures, create doubts and self-judgments. The bully can also be waiting to take itself out on others. Since the bully considers itself to be right, it has to find something wrong in others. The Bully Takes Its Toll The bully is always lurking in the shadows of our mind, not willing to leave until it…

MANY FACES. ONE SPIRIT

January 2018 Awaken From The Wounded Child MANY FACES. ONE SPIRIT Greetings from the Spirit within me. We have just passed through a year of seemingly constant turmoil.  And so, we may find ourselves entering the New Year with a hangover from last year’s world news and environmental disasters.  In the words of Winston Churchill, “History is one damned thing after another.” Ultimately, we can never find happiness if it is invested in the idea that the world around us has to change. If we look deeply into the root cause of conflict we’ll see that throughout the ages, we humans have been socially conditioned to focus on our differences.  Focusing on differences creates distance between individuals, communities and nations, causing conflict and stress. Stress has become the norm for many of us.  Yet, there is a lingering longing to live in a state of peace.   But…

LOVE IS THE HEART OF ALL EXPERIENCE

LOVE IS THE HEART OF ALL EXPERIENCE

  AWAKENING FROM THE WOUNDED CHILD  Magazine Circle Member & Visionary Leader September 2017  Article  Love Is The Heart Of All Experience Can love be present even in the midst of personal rage and social violence? Or, is love only present when things are going well?  Can we find true love, the love that doesn’t come and go with circumstances? The Divine Heart As I look back over the fluctuations of my life, from childhood to the very moment that I am writing this article, I notice that something has always remained constant … an underlying, aware presence that has never been affected by the tides of change.  Now, reflect on your life.  See what’s always been present in all situations. Aware presence sees all fluctuations, yet remains unchanged. It is the alive presence within which all thoughts, feelings, sensations and perceptions are watched.  Like the space…

Inner Peace Is Always Present

AWAKENING FROM THE WOUNDED CHILD   Magazine Circle Member & Visionary Leader August 2017  Article INNER PEACE IS ALWAYS PRESENT If inner peace is always present why do we not feel peaceful all the time?  The short answer is because our busy mind is veiling the peace that is our true nature.  The mind is a circular activity that consciously and unconsciously lives in the past and worries about the future. The mind is in a constant state of flux, striving and never arriving: it’s always searching for a moment in time that is better than the present moment.  The mind is like a hamster on a wheel … lots or motion, yet going nowhere.  The difference is the hamster enjoys the ride. We suffer. The futile search for inner peace The greatest addiction is the addiction to thinking.  For the constantly striving mind – except for fleeting…

True Simplicity Is To Live From Heart and Not From Mind

  Magazine Circle Member & Visionary Leader  March 2017  Article True Simplicity Is To Live From Heart and Not From Mind The mind is complex. The heart is simple. Appreciating the difference between mind-based simplicity and heart-based simplicity can mean the difference between a lifetime of struggle or one of happiness and inner peace. In our daily lives mind-based simplicity can have many meanings: decluttering our home, cleaning up e-mails, eliminating “stuff,” consuming less, trying to stop multitasking, incorporating technology to replace manual tasks (only to have to deal with technical problems). On and on.  All of these are worthy endeavors. Yet as time goes by, we find ourselves working more and more in the attempt to do less and less.  How ironic. You can’t downsize your way into True Simplicity. I’ve tried it and it doesn’t work for long. True Simplicity has a much more profound…

The One Promise That Can Never Be Broken Featured in Sibyl Magazine

Radavie is a Sibyl Magazine Circle Member & Visionary Leader February 2017  Article  The One Promise That Can Never Be Broken We’ve all experienced broken promises. Not only promises broken by others, but also promises we’ve made to others.  We even break promises to ourselves.  Remember that unkept New Year’s resolution?   Relationships are fertile grounds for broken promises. If it weren’t for broken promises, I’d imagine the world’s library of love songs would be half the size. Broken promises can leave wounds One broken promise I experienced left me with a wounded heart.  It was the morning of my 8th birthday.  My mother promised me a soft drink for my gift. I felt so happy that she acknowledged me. As children we all want to feel important and loved. I was overjoyed and couldn’t wait for my soda. Hours went by. It was late and my brothers…

Awakening From the Wounded Child Series Featured in Sibyl Magazine

Sibella Circle Member & Visionary Leader January 2017 Article Embrace Your Wounded Child! Until we embrace our Wounded Child, our search for Spiritual Awakening will be elusive. Due to parental and social conditioning our Wounded Child has been covered with defensive behaviors, protective personalities and blame. So often as adults, our continuing “self talk” may sound like this: “If this never happened to me, I would be… .” We live from a longing to be free, while blaming our past. My Loss of Innocence Through my childhood experiences, I have come to understand that all this “self talk” is the voice of human conditioning. For me, it all started when my mother went through a difficult child birth. I had to be extracted by the midwife because of an unusual breach. We both could have died. Throughout my childhood my mother often told me, “You have come…

How Healthy is Your Relationship?

If what you have been striving for is a relationship that can bring love and harmony into your relationship with your mate, remember that when we set a goal to have joy and feel the constant state of love for each other. To experience this we must face the shadows inside ourselves. If you are unable to maintain peace and love,it is because the imprints blocking you must surface and be released.The absolute best thing you can do for yourself is change your mind about all of this by doing a simple exercise: Find a comfortable quiet space and connect with your breath, then feel what is really going on inside of yourself. Feel into the energy of where you are right now and I guarantee you that you will become more aware of your true feelings that are covered over by your beliefs. It is the…
