I wanted to explore the concept of cords. No, I'm not talking about electrical wires you use to plug in your favorite electronic devices, although those are cool too. I'm talking about energetic cords. Yes folks, get ready to gallop with me through another post filled with kooky esoterica.
In all seriousness understanding cordings is important to understanding our relationship to others and the world at large. On a basic level a cord is a mental and or emotional connection to someone or something other than ourselves that both gives and receives energy (very similar to an electric cord). We consciously and unconsciously create cords with numerous things and people in our lives whether we like it or not. If you think about it we're all like energetic versions of Spidey. Read More
Keeping your body clear of impurities goes far beyond eating and drinking pure and organic foods and staying away from toxins. Favorite media buzz words like "antioxidants" and "free radicals" would have us believe that staying healthy is primarily physical endeavor. And while yes, ensuring that what you put into your body is of high quality and has essential nutrients and vitamins is important, it's not the whole story. Read More
The human energy system is highly suggestible. So while your liver and kidneys respond to various toxins and process and eliminate them according to their level of functioning, the human energy field or aura can often do the same thing. There is plenty of evidence of the aura for those interested in the science of it all. Particularly experiments done to photograph the energy field around plants and their reaction to various positive and negative stimuli.
I wanted to write about self esteem because I think we often only look at it from one angle. However, I find that for myself that self esteem issues tend to be isolated in certain spheres or areas of our lives.
So while I may think I'm the "ish" at cooking eggs benedict or understanding people's motivations, I may feel like a complete loser when it comes to expressing my emotions or showing vulnerability (a very big problem for many men).
I like to look at things from a holistic point of view. So I thought, why not address self esteem in the same way. I hope others can find this holistic approach to self esteem issues as helpful as it was for me to write this post. Read More
It's that time: flowers (allergies), rain (allergies), bees pollinating things (which means more allergies), birds chirping. Yes, it's spring time. I have always preferred spring compared to other seasons because when you live in Oklahoma spring means at least 2 months of respite before the temperature reaches a comfortable 438 degrees.

I think most people, unless you live under a rock (which is totally cool, but my question is twofold: a.) how do you breathe under there and b.) isn't it cramped?), have heard of chakras.
Chakras are very simply energy vortices inside and around the human energy system that help us transmute incoming information about the world. Many cultures have identified these vortices and worked with the wisdom of the body this way for centuries. They are slowly becoming more popularized in the Western world as we get hip to the wisdom of ancient traditions.
Understanding how each chakra can be a doorway into health and healing and deepening our personal conception of spirituality is a great shorthand way to ensure we are caring for our whole selves. Read More
