Solitude & Spiritual Growth

Saturday, December 7th, 2013

For most people today finding time to retreat from their busy lives takes repeated effort and discipline.  Yet if you can find the time to do so, the rewards are many.

By allowing extended periods of solitude to enter our lives, we can grow closer to Source and begin to see ourselves clearly through a Divine perspective. In this way we can truly slow our thoughts, move deeply inward, confront and transform our core issues while creating forward motion in our spiritual growth.

Going for long walks in nature is an easy way to achieve at least snippets of solitude in our hectic lives. As you become more accustomed to silence in the woods, or the natural sounds of beach and wildlife, relaxation, sensitivity, and lack of self-importance become the norm, enabling us to discern common similarities between others and us and cooperatively engage with friends, family or acquaintances.


Embracing Solitude Allows You To

Speak from your heart

Deeply relax

Release your expectations of others

Transform your life

Feed your soul and spiritually evolve

Free yourself from constant action & companionship

Understand the virtue of silence

Be patient and cooperative with others.

Move closer to the Divine




Right Use of Will: What is it?

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

We all know that when we exercise our personal Will we are using self-discipline to motivate us to take charge of our behavior. Aligned with our ego and desires, this form of Will assists our intellect to consciously decide the best course of action.

When we align our personal will with Divine Will our life becomes infused with spiritual energy that works toward our spiritual growth, transformation and enlightenment. Allowing us to grow unconditional love embodied with Spirit, this Right Use of Will helps us move toward our Divine potential, by accelerating our evolutionary path, through an expanded consciousness and higher purpose in life.


How to Connect with Divine Will

Yearn to do so

Have Gratitude




Conscious Breathing

Surrendering to a Higher Power

Enjoying the Beauty in Nature

Connecting with your Higher Self

Following your Heart


Once you have achieved this spiritual resonation, you will be able to shine your Light within to others.

Trusting Your Inner Authority

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012
Cultivating self-knowledge, self-understanding and self-acceptance are critical to developing your Inner Authority. When we trust our inner knowing and act accordingly, we begin to align with our Spirit and embrace spiritual growth.

However, this simple action is sometimes difficult to grasp, for as children we are socialized to look outside ourselves for answers. Parents, teachers and advertisements give our lives direction by enticing us to disconnect from our inner guidance.

So How do we find our way home?

Because we are each unique in our needs, what is true for one person may not be true for another. By paying attention to your gut feelings, instincts and what your body is suggesting it wants, the process of uncovering who you are will begin. As you practice and discover what you need and want, you will develop more confidence, wisdom, and harmony in your life.

When we take the time to slow down and contemplate our priorities, we nourish, support and encourage our true nature to shine.   By fostering life-decisions with our Inner Authority, we open ourselves to living consciously, creating our own future and cultivating lasting relationships. We also begin to grow spiritually by aligning with the Divine spark within.
