Self-Love and The Role of The Intuitive Empath

Last weekend, Vola and I took our first trip back to Los Angeles since moving away from there a few years ago. We were there to attend Kyle Cease’s Evolve Out Loud weekend workshop at the Dolby theater. It was also an opportunity to meet up with friends and acquaintances I’d met from a Steve […]

Disengage Your Cybernetic Appendage

More often than not, whenever I sit down to write, the endeavor becomes an unfolding dialogue between myself and my Higher Mind and/or Spirit guides. This has been going on for many years now, before I really had any understanding of what was happening. I would write a question, and allow an answer to come […]

Emotional Avatars

I’ve been exploring the idea of emotional avatars recently. What do I mean by that? Well, some examples would be our favorite TV show characters, movie characters, book characters, including those in video games. Virtually any fictional or sometimes even actual historical figures can be thought of in this way. These all represent emotional touchstones […]

Belief Comes First

For anyone involved in self-development, transformation, or self-actualization circles as I am, inevitably, discussion comes around to the concept of our beliefs. Obviously, our beliefs have a powerful, direct impact on what each of us will experience, and I would say it directly affects what we can experience, as I’ve discussed here and here. On […]

Reflections in Subjective Reality

I am presently halfway through a very unique challenge that I was inspired to create based on Bentinho Massaro’s 2-hour challenge. Essentially, this involves a two hour period wherein, at the top of every minute, you intentionally think the best feeling thought you have access to, for a minimum of 10 seconds. The difference is, […]

My Last Day on Earth

I woke up yesterday knowing that I would be writing this post. I didn’t have any idea what it was going to be about. But I knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that a message was here within me and needed to be expressed. And as I sat in the park to write it, […]

The Chipped Glass

“In feng shui it’s said that even a chipped glass in your home is something you should repair or replace immediately; otherwise you’re shirking your duty to maintain a beautiful, stress-free living environment. You’re also signaling to the universe that you feel unworthy of non-broken items and that you only deserve that which is flawed.” […]

Basement or Penthouse?

It’s been almost a year since my last entry, and what an amazing time of spiritual expansion and intuition and creativity it has been. Rather than attempting to properly and contextually summarize here, I’ll kick off this return to form by diving right in with one particular automatic writing session I experienced recently. I’ve experienced […]

Let Go and Allow – Let Go and Align

There’s been so much happening in my journey as of late – so many rich experiences and breakthroughs that the living of them has required my full, active focus.   Only now have I had both the moment to express myself and the overwhelming urge to do so. In the last two months, I have gone […]

Luminosity

So here we are, a month after the purported end of the world, and well, we survived.   So much energy surrounding the expiration of the Mayan calendar on December 21, and what it supposedly entailed, and we are still here.   Sure, there were of course lots of imagined doom and gloom scenarios, and movies and […]

Holy Water and The Placebo Effect

I have, this year, written many posts on a wide range of topics – different concepts I’ve come across, found particularly useful, and felt a strong resonance with.   It’s always fascinating to find myself coming back to things like meditation, lucid dreaming, and crystal healing, and to see how each has played a role in […]

Lucidity

Lately I’ve found that as I continue to follow my bliss, let go and trust, and allow my intuition to guide me, that I’ve been led to some familiar ground.   Certain rituals and practices and fields of study that I had visited many years ago have begun folding back into my day-to-day life, only now […]

The Dark Side and the Power of Expectations

A few weeks ago, at the beginning of this three-part series on expectation, I offered a strong statement: In my experience, I have come to understand that expectation is both the most powerful tool we have for changing our lives for the better, and the root of everything that’s going wrong for us.   It’s  up […]

Who’s Behind Your Wheel?

In cleaning up our present misunderstandings in an effort to heal a rocky relationship with the concept of expectations, this second post in my three-part series addresses the area where I believe most of our issues on this topic arise from – our expectations of others. Whether we realize it or not, so much of […]

Greater Expectations

In my ever-widening understanding of my spiritual nature and the means by which I may live the life of my dreams in this physical experience, I have come, over and over and over again, to one concept that I have until now been loathe to face directly: Expectation. I’ve mentioned expectation briefly in this blog […]

Everything is a Cooperative Component

This week I’ve been searching for and learning how to use some advanced editing software to put together the shots for my demo reel.   It’s yet another steep learning curve for me.   Time is on my side, however, and no one is expecting a completed reel by any specific deadline.   So any pressure I feel […]

Blue Moon Rising

August has been a whirlwind of activity for me.   Lining up all the production elements for my demo reel, bringing together the co-creators, charging forth through the fast paced shoot, and immediately diving head-first into for back-to-back mini-vacations.   The month went by in a blur, and I’m grateful for every moment of it.   Today,  I […]

The Universe Multi-tasks Better Than You

A lot has been happening recently – and I’m thoroughly enjoying the serendipity of it all.    My friend’s short film “Recession” that I had a hand in has been accepted into the Holly shorts film festival coming up next month. The web-series I was cast in months ago, La Verdad, is seeing forward movement again, […]

If You Build It, He Will Come

Every time you re-read your favorite book or watch a movie again, despite knowing how it ends, the experience is different, because you are different.   You’ve changed, you’ve been around longer, hopefully you’ve picked up some wisdom along the way, but regardless, you’ve experienced more life.   You’ve expanded beyond the person you were when you […]

Limitless

“You look younger.” I’ve been hearing this recently, from people I haven’t seen since moving back to Los Angeles.   Some of them I haven’t seen in 2 to 6 years, and yet, these are often their first words after recognizing me.   Sure, I could easily attribute this to losing 30+ pounds a year ago, but […]
