Is Confidence Needed to Connect with the Inner Teacher?

What builds that confidence is validation over time—it requires duration plus positive experience with the inner teacher. It’s like anything else, you’re building a muscle.

There is no better time, there is no better place. There is only here and now–so get hopping.

Q: So, you’re saying to stop trying to game the system. Play it straight up. Here and now. That will make for a pretty big change after a lifetime of trying to see up ahead, around corners.

And where has that gotten you?

Q: That’s what fear and worry do though. When you feel that you have to watch out for everyone else and yourself–that’s a lot of responsibility. That’s a lot of moving parts. That’s a lot of things Read more

Do We Have Free Will?

Do we, as humans, have free will? 

As humans, no. 

Then why is it that we feel like we need to make decisions?

But so many of these dreams get shaped at times in our … Read more

How to Develop Intuition

Q: Does everyone have an intuitive ability?

Yes. Everyone is born with an active intuitive awareness, otherwise known as the instinct for survival. Because this is essentially an unused sense, which is typically not valued or is feared, most parents teach it out of their children at a very early age.

Q: Are you saying that intuition is nothing more than a glorified survival instinct?

Intuition is a refined version, yes. Before the modern age when humans were on an … Read more

The Shell Game

shell gameIn order to survive, we all build a shell to live in. For some, the shell is the athlete, the brain, the attractive one, the funny one, the kind-nice one, the in-control-get-things-done one. There are many shells. But that’s all it is; a shell game.  

But you won’t know this until you lift the shell up to see that there’s nothing underneath it. You don’t live in the shell, the shell is not you. When you are freed from that Read more
