Crazy. Spiritual. Cool.

Caught in a Prison of Your Own Making?

Posted on | July 20, 2011 | 2 Comments

Breaking Free

Breaking free from analysis paralysis… or the delay tactic of procrastination.

Getting yourself back to good.  This recipe could be applied to anything as we tend to get ourselves caught up in the pleasure and/or conversely the pain (we do have the propensity to become addicted to trauma drama)… relationships, working through divorces, jobs and career paths, quitting an addiction, improving health matters, exercise, or just plain following through with those endless projects that don’t ever seem to get finished.  Ever wonder where the middle ground is?


Ask for guidance in choosing what is in your best and highest good?  Stop struggling.  The more you struggle, the faster you go down.  Calm yourself.  Breathe.  Now, follow your guidance… guidance from the body (you can feel what you are to do – you just KNOW)…guidance from your guides, guardians and God/Spirit/Source… and guidance from within, your own High Self.


You made a choice.  Now it’s time to commit.  What is in it for you?  What is in the value that you are choosing this option/opportunity?  What is it really worth to you?  Commit yourself to this choice from your very core and don’t look back.  Commitment only takes a firm yes or a no.  You decide.  So DECIDE.  You can or you can’t.  You will or you won’t.


Now that you have made your choice, and you have decided to make your commitment.  It’s time to also be receptive to guidance and prayers, or the Universe, God/Spirit.  Support comes in many different forms when we focus our energy to that of our best and highest good.  When we choose to eliminate a habit, or something that which is no longer serving us, we have to ASK and RECEIVE.  We have to ask for support from our friends/family/Heaven.  Any time we ask for help in our best and highest good, answers and support comes pouring in.


Get the heck out of your way!  Stop the self sabotaging behaviors!  You ARE worth it!  You CAN do it!  Trust.  Do all that you can.  Do not block yourself by creating expectations or demands.

All too often we can find ourselves caught up and stuck in the woulda, coulda, shoulda.  Have compassion and forgive yourself for things you blame yourself for, the things that you think you should have done or didn’t do.  Let them go.  Don’t judge your experience.  Surrender.  Know and trust that you are where you are and who you are because of the path that brought you to exactly where you are… and more often than not… it will NOT look like the brochure you had in your head!  If viewed from a higher perspective, it’s often even better!!

Today’s song of the post – 06-back-2-good-1

To be, or not to be… Insulted.

Posted on | July 14, 2011 | 1 Comment


Buddha explains.

One day Buddha was walking through a village.
A very angry and rude young man came up and began insulting him.
“You have no right teaching others,” he shouted.
“You are as stupid as everyone else. You are nothing but a fake.”

Buddha was not upset by these insults.  Instead he asked the young man, “Tell me, if you buy a gift for someone, and that person does not take it, to whom does the gift belong?”  The man was surprised to be asked such a strange question and answered, “It would belong to me, because I bought the gift.”

The Buddha smiled and said, “That is correct. And it is exactly the same with your anger. If you become angry with me and I do not get insulted, then the anger falls back on you. You are then the only one who becomes unhappy, not me. All you have done is hurt yourself.”
“If you want to stop hurting yourself, you must get rid of your anger and become loving instead. When you hate others, you yourself become unhappy. But when you love others, everyone is happy.”

The young man listened closely to these wise words of the Buddha. “You are right, O Enlightened One, “he said.  “Please teach me the path of love. I wish to become your follower.” The Buddha answered kindly, “Of course.  I teach anyone who truly wants to learn.  Come with me.”

I saw this beautiful little story on my friend Michael Robinson’s Facebook wall today.  Thought it relevant to share in the moment.

Big Love!


The Song of the Day – by my friend Colette Baron-Reid09-love-is-the-answer

Let it Be

Posted on | June 7, 2011 | No Comments

Let it

Just Be.

Life inevitably brings change.  Change can be very abrupt, and very scary for even the strongest of us.  Change brings the fear of the unknown.  What next?  Why me?  Why NOW?  Oftentimes I find the great power of Grace and Healing through lyrics of great song writers.  I am convinced that these song writers divinely channel these powerful lyrics from a Higher Plane.  For example… the great Beatles, John Lennon and Paul McCartney, who I believe to have been far ahead of their time when it comes to so many messages brought forth in their lyrics/melodies.  What is hugely resonating with me at this moment in time is “Let it Be.”

“When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

To the Catholics, Mother Mary is the quintessential, unconditional loving ‘Mother’, or ‘Nurturer’.  Her counterparts with Eastern religions are Quan Yin, Kali, Durga, Saraswati, Lakshmi and other forms of the Divine Mother, or Devi.  All are the same nurturing, loving force.  Through the Divine Mother, all life comes to have form.

“And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be.”

Like any mother with a child in trouble, this nurturing, loving energy is instantly present when called upon for guidance.  When we ask for guidance, we ALWAYS get an answer.  It’s impossible NOT to.  They/The Universe always responds to what we put out there.  We just have to be prepared for the answer, without attachment to the outcome, and follow with faith.  Faith you say?  Believe.  Believe in yourself.  Believe in your Higher Power.  Believe in the Unseen.
“And when the night is cloudy,
There is still a light that shines on me,
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be.”

In perceived darkness, there is always a gift… that pot of gold in the dark.  All we need to do is shine our Light… even if all you can muster is that of a flicker of a candle within.  Light spreads.  Light shines.  Light attracts Light.

Macroscopically, I feel this is also a message for the vast majority of us given the nature of the times at the present moment with respect to the world economics, local and world politics, and global natural disasters taking place with such force.  Respectively and microscopically (individually), many of us are feeling the anxiety of massive transition and the burn of big change… loss of a job and/or career along with bankruptcy and foreclosure, or loss of a loved one (death or divorce) and the list just goes on and on.

L’eggo your Ego

As we are faced with what feels like monumental challenges and transformation in our journey, the ego will throw a FIT.  Be prepared.  Some of us have the tendency to withdraw and hide while some of us have the propensity to try to take control of an uncontrollable situation, only to find that it makes things worse.  Oftentimes, withdrawing and hiding is a form of attempting to take control, only in the opposite sense.  Feeling a lack of control, some turn to addictions to numb themselves and bury their heads in the sand.  Addictions come in all forms…from alcohol and drugs, to food, to exercise and even ‘work-aholism’- burying oneself in work or endless projects…all to avoid facing the emotional hornets nest of fear and pain that dwells deep within.

The ego kicks and screams.  The ego reacts.  The ego judges.  The ego is in FEAR.  The ego is unable to see through the illusion of it all and thinks it’s REAL.  The truth is that it is not.  It is merely an experience for our Soul to learn and grow from.  Without the experience of this fear, the doubt, the anxiety, and the misalignment of our energy, we wouldn’t be able to truly learn and recognize one of the most beautiful spiritual laws… the Law of Grace.  The Law of Grace states that through compassion and forgiveness, are we truly able to break through our own ill perceived prison and fear.  As Father-Mother God(dess)/Spirit/Creator/Universe forgives us by His/Hers/Its’ Grace, so shall we… forgiveness within ourselves and those around us.  Forgiveness for the things that we think we did or didn’t do.  Forgiveness for those whom we feel hurt by…family members, friends and even strangers who have committed crimes against against us.  When we are able to surrender and truly let go, we are able to stand centered and grounded and view the entire situation from a higher plane.  We are able to see the situation from a higher perspective allowing us to see the forest through the trees.

Guides, Guards and God

During what feels like ridiculously trying times, your Spiritual Entourage, your spirit guides, your guardian angels, the Archangels and/or God/Spirit/Source/Universe is/are standing by with bated breath (well, if they breathed oxygen where they are… they would be) just waiting for your cry for help.  They are with us through our entire journey here.  And we do!  We do cry for help!  “God, give me the courage to…” or “God give me the strength to…”

However… here’s the kicker…  our Angels/God/Spirit/The Universe don’t/doesn’t just wave a wand and *POOF* “You have COURAGE!” and *POOF* “You are STRONG!”  No.  The truth is, you are given opportunities to BE courageous.  You are given opportunities to BE strong!  This is frightening because we feel as though we are standing on the leading edge of a cliff.  And as the old saying goes…”If you are not standing on the edge, you are taking up too much space.”  LOL  Crazy huh?  But when you take that step forward, you realize that you ARE courageous, you ARE strong!  You DO have support and guidance from the very core of your authentic Self!  You have wings and you CAN fly!  And as that confidence builds within, your strength increases.  Your Light shines brighter and brighter.  Your self esteem strengthens and suddenly you are making your way forward.

Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway!!

Oh we have heard this a million times haven’t we?  Yet, there is Truth in this statement.  Deep in your gut, you KNOW what the answer is.  You might not like it, but you know.  As you move forward with your guidance, you have no where to go but UP.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… in the words of Mary Magdalene via an amazing channel and friend Michelle Eloff, “All we can do is BE in the moment.  Trust.  Do everything we can… and do NOT block yourself by creating expectations of demands.”

Our song for the day!  02-let-it-be

Uniting the Unseen Bridges

Posted on | May 5, 2011 | No Comments

In previous posts, I have often discussed Oneness, and the fact that we are all energy, connected to each other and every living thing in this Universe.  I have described the bridge between us and ‘the other side’, or Heaven, angels, guides, and each other psychically as that which I have related to as the ‘Spiritual Web’, very similar to that of the World Wide Web.

With the World Wide Web (the internet), we are all seamlessly connected around the globe.  We are able to talk to a loved one on the other side of the globe in real time video.  Millions of people are able to chat with others simultaneously via chat rooms on God knows how many websites… all within a split second.  How does this work?  Most of us haven’t really even thought about it.  All I know, is that my wireless computer is somehow connected to a wireless network which is somehow connected to the cable company and somewhere something is beamed from my computer to the router which is receiving information through the cable line, and somewhere something is being beamed to a satellite and then back down to the Earth… I mean really, we can’t see this happening with our physical eyes, but we know it’s happening because we are talking with friends in another country and experiencing this as reality today!  How amazing is this?  It’s awesome!  Truly a miracle in it’s own right!  In essence, the beauty in the internet is that it has truly provided a very real connection with everybody and anybody who has a computer anywhere on the planet.  It has brought us closer to recognizing the Whole… the Collective… the Oneness that we truly are, together.  In my experience, it’s very much the same thing in how we are all psychically and/or spiritually connected together.

Angelic Voices from Above

I recently became aware of an amazing composer/conductor through a posting on Facebook.  I was absolutely moved beyond words and straight to tears when I watched what he had created.  In a moving and madly viral video last year, composer Eric Whitacre led a virtual choir of singers from around the world.  In this video, he talks through the creative challenges of making music powered by YouTube.

Take a look at this incredible video!

Ok, HOW AMAZING IS THAT?  How can you not have chilly bumps from head to toe while listening to that?  I was blown away at the magnitude of what was really happening.  It is quite frankly one of the most beautiful undertakings I have seen.  The mere fact that Eric was able to attract thousands of participants wanting to contribute their voices was one thing.  The biggie for me was that these voices… these individual voices came together in such PERFECT harmony from people all around the globe as if they had rehearsed and listened to each other for months in the same choir room.

The truth is that these souls came together in such perfect unison on an emotional, mental and spiritual level.  While listening to the music of this virtual choir, one can actually FEEL the energy… the emotional intensity, the love and the passion coming from this within this one group… a group of people who never sat with each other in this physical world… a group connecting and working together with each other on an entirely different level rather than the physical.

Voices Become One

And this has been made possible by the World Wide Web as well as the Spiritual Web as Eric Whitacre put his intentions out there and attracted this amazing choir of individuals spanning the globe, coming together to form this one choir blending melodic voices into One.  Oneness.  A state whereby the sense of separation has dissolved and one experiences reality as a profound web of connection between all living matter.  There is no longer a “me” and a “not me,” but rather a division-less flow of the Divine, of intelligence, of love.

Thank you Eric Whitacre, for your vision and your creativity.  Thank you to the people around the world who became One with each other to display a beautiful opportunity once not even possible and showing us that there are endless possibilities that we can co-create together as One even when we aren’t in the same physical location.

Lux Aurumque.  Light and Gold.

Spiritual Awakening

Posted on | March 16, 2011 | 1 Comment

Red Rocks of Sedona, Arizona

Red Rocks of Sedona, Arizona

Sedona, Arizona is a major spiritual, energetic power center on Earth.  Hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world travel to Sedona to experience spiritual/physical healing and to expand their consciousness, or even just for the incredible beauty that the landscape of Sedona provides.  Many people are changed forever upon leaving Sedona, having experienced a miraculous healing or even from just sitting quietly in one of the many vortices.  Many people leave questioning life as they once believed it to be and feeling that there really is more.  But how can they explain it?  A knowing.

At least one point during our lives, we all receive that “call to action” by our Spiritual Entourage – our Guardian Angels and Guides, and/or God/Spirit/Source. Ultimately, it is all coming from the same place. Many of us hear it but choose to ignore it. Many are floating through life on auto-pilot with eyes closed and iPod’s blasting so loudly in their ears that they wouldn’t hear a thing Heaven might be trying to get through. They don’t notice the Divine communication. Many hear it but don’t understand what to do or how to do it. We initially resist with fear over the changes necessary to be made which do not fit into our original life design.

Others, like myself in Sedona, heard it loud and clear and weren’t quite sure what to do next, or how to make the changes, but discovered that by surrendering and just allowing, Heaven took care of ALL of the details. And it can be SUPER scary. Whoa. When Heaven has a plan for you, and you say, “Ok, bring it on.”, be prepared for massive shift in your life. It will look like nothing you could have possibly envisioned for yourself in your wildest dreams. And it will come with some growing pains… major growing pains. But in the end when you are where you are supposed to be, there is a level a peace within that just can not really be described with words.

However profound and however different it may look for each of us, we each experience this ascent of consciousness quite similarly.  And the ego will resist.  It’s like the movie, “The Matrix”, when Neo was presented with the notion that there is so much more to life than that which he had been aware.  He knows something.  He feels something more, something bigger… but he can’t explain it.  The metaphor he was presented with was that of a choice… a red pill or a blue pill.  The blue pill will leave him in his current state of mind, virtually asleep at the wheel, unconsciously living.  The red pill will deepen his awareness and expand his consciousness to the Truth.

But once we are presented with the mere fact that we even have a choice, haven’t we already begun the transformation?   This is what is meant by our “Spiritual Awakening” within… our ‘Call to Action’ from our High Self, or God/Spirit.  The death of the old and the transformation into the new, awakened consciousness.  Death and Rebirth.

A Big Welcome to Linda West, MA, CATP

**Note:  To make your comments or ask questions to Linda, please hit the title of this post, “A Big Welcome…” and scroll to the bottom of the interview.  One of you will be chosen to receive a signed copy of her new book!
I am honored to host Linda’s first day of her virtual tour as she promotes her new book,  “8 Keys – A Special Delivery Message From The Angels”.

8 Keys - A Special Delivery Message from the Angels

8 Keys - A Special Delivery Message from the Angels

She will be here LIVE with us all day, so please feel free to post questions and comments for her. Scroll to the bottom of the post and make your comments!  She is going to choose one special person from the day to give a copy of her book.  Comment, ask questions, correspond, and if you are the winner, I will be in touch with you to obtain your address!

Linda, you are known as a person who works directly with Angels to gain insight and inspiration to help us in our lives. If you can put it into words, what is the energy of an angel like and how would you describe them in terms of their personality when they interact with you?

L:  Angels definitely have personalities, depending on the energy of the person and what the person may need. My angels have a great sense of humor. They help me laugh at myself! They are loving, encouraging, very patient, and put in front of my face what I need to deal with. They are me in pure form. They help me see how special I am, while understanding as well that each of us has special and amazing qualities that make us unique. It’s all about Love!!
When did you have first contact with an angel, and how did you know it was an angel and not some other entity disguised as one?
L:  I have been in communication with angels my whole life. I just didn’t always know it but I was always guided. It wasn’t till I went to Doreen Virtue’s ATP course years ago, that I realized the angels were talking and wanted me to do the readings. I did struggle against that. As a matter of fact it was Archangel Michael that told me, “You need to do Angel readings.” I did argue at first but, hey, it’s the Archangel Michael. Needless to say I gave in.

How does this information from the other side come to you?
L:  I get information from all three “clairs:” clairvoyant, clairaudient, clairsentient. Information feels like it comes through the top of my head. It’s downloaded like you download a computer. I love how easily information can come to me after all these years. At least the Angels don’t have to hit me over the head to get my attention anymore. I am grateful for that.

Why should someone make a specific effort to connect with their angels?
L:  We all should connect. Let’s face it we all need help. It’s fun! The angels do respond and that makes life interesting.

Can you give us a synopsis of your new book, “8 Keys”?
L:  The book is a guide for an inward journey to create “the kingdom of heaven on earth.” The journey is in the 8 Keys. And interspersed in that journey is my journey. I grew up with a sexually abusive father and a bipolar and physically abusive mother. So this is my journey from being invisible with no self-esteem to who I am today.

What are the “8 Keys”?
L:  Believe, Trust, Detach, Love, Humility, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Connection.

What was your inspiration for your new book, “8 Keys”?
L:  The angels told me to do this. They gave me the “keys” and who wants to argue with the angels?

What can the average reader who is starting to feel the sense of spiritual awakening do to further develop their bond with their angels and open up to receive their own messages?
L:  Just ask. Then listen, or more simply. . . Believe, Trust, Detach.


Linda, it’s nice to have you here with us and wish you the best in getting your message out.  I look forward to reading your book for as you know from one fellow Angel Therapy Practitioner to another, this information highly resonates with me as well!

Linda is available for questions all day so please make your comments and ask away!  She gives an amazing reading!

I am also available for readings that can be purchased through this site as well!  Let’s talk!

Happy New Year everyone!  Make it a brilliant, gorgeous day!  And thank you Linda!

Big Love,

Spread the Love this Holiday Season!

Posted on | December 18, 2010 | No Comments

An evening spent with thePhoenix Metropolitan Men’s Chorus during this Holiday Season will undoubtedly leave one walking away feeling uplifted by the powerful energy of love through their incredibly melodic harmonies of holiday music, old and new.  The men of the PMMC volunteer their time in order to give the gift of their amazing talents through song.

Holiday seasons such as Thanksgiving and Christmas evoke a wide range of emotions within us as we are continuously reminded of Love, Gratitude, Forgiveness, Peace and Compassion.  Christmas concerts, holiday music, and holiday parties bring us all together towards the end of the year to celebrate life, love, giving and receiving. The energy builds during these two big holidays as we connect and celebrate with loved ones, friends and family alike.

Ultimately, Love in its purest form is all we are striving for.  Unconditional.  Nonjudgmental.  As stated in the Prayer to St. Francis of Assisi, it is in giving that we receive.  To be Loved is to Love.  During this time, make it a point to open your hearts to this energy.  Say I Love You to those closest to you before it’s too late.  Mean it.  Refrain from ‘lazy speak’ by cutting off the ‘I’.  When we say ‘Love you” and remove the ‘I’, it doesn’t hold the same energy, as it takes the commitment and accountability from a statement which is so powerful between us.  Bask in the loving energy of this Holiday Season, absorb it and pass it on.

Christmastime: a time for giving

Posted on | December 11, 2010 | No Comments

Christmastime, a time for giving.

Christmastime, a time for giving.


To many, the holiday season is filled with bliss, hope, renewal, peace and gratitude.  Family and loved ones come together to celebrate old time traditions passed down from generation to generation.  Friends, new and old, congregate together with holiday parties and celebrate with great food, spirits, song and laughter.  Charitable contributions in the forms of gifts, food, clothes and money seem to increase during this season.  In essence, this time of year is energetically charged with a big boost of Love… people across the world celebrating essentially the same ideals:  Love, Peace, Giving and Hope.

Whether it be in the form of Christianity celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, to Kwanzaa whereby seven days are dedicated to one of seven Kwanzaa principles, to the Jewish celebration of Hannukah, or to the old world Pagan celebration of Yule celebrating the winter solstice and a fertile and peaceful season to come, many cultures around the globe and hundreds of millions of people are in full on jubilation.

On the flip side however, this season isn’t so Light filled for some.  Many people are filled with depression and sadness, loneliness and sorrow or anger and resentment.  It can be nothing more than a painful reminder of loved ones they may have lost in the past year due to separation, divorce or death.  It may just exacerbate the notion that they feel alone in the world.  As with many in this current state of the economy, money isn’t as excessive as it once may have been leaving parents unable to provide as they had, let alone stocking the tree with presents for the family.  Like pouring salt in the wound, these unavoidable massive holidays can burn to some, leaving them focusing on and feeling what they perceive as a lack or absence… lack of love or lack of money in this case.

To those of you feeling the flow and filled with an abundance of Joy and Love… donate your time and those gifts.  Spread the joy to those less fortunate.  Volunteer for your favorite charity like the Make-A-Wish Foundation and give of yourself in the final gift of a terminally ill child, or for your local Humane Society and help walk or feed the dogs that are cooped up all day.

To those of you feeling the ebb and stuck in the doldrums this holiday season… donate your time and find it within yourself to give of yourself to those less fortunate.  Guaranteed, in volunteering for a local charity, you will find yourself uplifted as you give your time and energy to a sick child, caged animals, the elderly or the homeless.  As you give, you will receive.  It is a Universal law.  Not only will you be enriching the lives of others, but you will also be enriching your own Self from the inside, out.
