Lugh was a Celtic god of many talents. He journeyed to Tara, where Nuada was king, and asked to become part of the court. However, the doorkeeper told Lugh that only a craftsman, someone with a special gift to offer the court, would be admitted.

Lugh told him that he was a skilled blacksmith. But they already had a blacksmith.

In our modern day, many people tend to believe that all thinking is done through the mind, and that the heart is the source of all experiences of heartache; that it’s the heart that lets us down, or guides us into situations that open us to the risks of disappointment, hurt and betrayal.

However, the ancients believed that the heart was not only the emotional center of our being, but that it was also in charge of the decision making process. And in yogic traditions it is considered the center for the internal guru.

The Heartmath Institute in Colorado, a facility dedicated to scientifically exploring the activities of the human heart, has discovered that the heart has its own intelligence, and the heart actually sends more information to the brain than the brain sends to the heart. And, a peaceful happy heart enhances the brain’s creativity and problem solving skills.

I’ve really been focused on learning the practical steps to peace so that I can embody peace, no matter what’s going on around me.

Let’s face it, things have been really hard. We are experiencing division and conflict more intensely than we ever have before! There is so much drama!

And guess what! This drama is all self-imposed. I know you don’t want to hear that – I sure didn’t! But it’s true. This is because we experience drama to the extent we feel disconnected from our Source.

The problem:

“What you seek is seeking you.” ~ Rumi

This is one of my favorite quotes because it reminds me of when I’m trying too hard to find that one perfect thing that will make life amazing.

We often think we are seeking something to make our life better:

The perfect partner
Vibrant health
Abundance
Power
Recognition
Appreciation
The perfect career

However, this puts us in the position of seeking outside of ourselves, which may temporarily feel amazing, but it’s not sustainable.

What we are truly seeking is the feeling we think those things will bring us; peace, contentment, happiness. Love.

The term highly sensitive has become a popular catch phrase for people who feel highly emotional or overwhelmed with the normal challenges of life. However, in all my years of working with energy, what I believe is that many of these highly sensitive souls are light workers; people who are highly sensitive to the energy that makes up all living things and have a great desire to be part of the process of helping others connect with their divine nature. This sensitivity allows them to express profound healing energies through a variety of modalities; vibrational or holistic healing, the arts, teaching, you name it!

Here are what I think are some of the most common signs of being a highly sensitive soul.

When I first decided to practice being non-judgmental, I thought it would be pretty easy. After all, it was just about letting people have their own opinions, and not calling them an idiot when they didn’t agree with me, right?

I later discovered that was only the tip of the iceberg.

Movies like the Exorcist, A Haunting in Connecticut, and the Exorcism of Emily Rose, tell the stories of people who, against their will, have been possessed by spirits. Stories about such spirit activity are frightening. But, in many ways, the scariest thing about these stories is the utter unpredictability and randomness of the spirit possession; it seems that it could happen to anyone.

Scary, yes! But in reality, you have much more power than you may think, because spirit possession is not a truly random occurrence. There has to be a specific set of circumstances in place; usually it’s that someone’s energy field has been weakened through some sort of trauma, which makes them vulnerable and unaware.

It’s a common mis-perception in the new age community that if you set an intention that is too detailed, you may limit the good that the Universe can give you, and that it’s better to ask to have your expectations exceeded. 

But I disagree. We really need a clear intention!

Why is setting a clearly defined intention so important?

Many spiritually minded people, especially those who fervently study the law of attraction, find themselves very frustrated when their life doesn’t unfold the way they’d hoped it would – especially when they believe they’ve taken all the required steps to manifest something special!

Through my own experiences (ie., failures), I have come to believe that there are many reasons we may not be creating the life we want to create, and here are a few of them.

In the early 1990s I started my training as a Holistic Health Practitioner. It seemed like such an exciting field to be working in, and everywhere I went, practically, I could talk to people about one method of healing, or another, and gather an audience.

Mostly I did massage, followed closely by energy healing, and on occasion, I got to do hypnosis sessions, or flower essence consultations. I was having a blast.

Or was I?

I did love having my clients, because they were all such amazing people, and I loved how people thought that what I did was so cool.
