Okay, here we go: Who are the people in your life who have hurt you the most? Maybe they’re alive, maybe they’re not — for this personal reflection that’s not the point. (The point isn’t about getting all riled up about it, as you will shortly see, so don’t be afraid to really go here.)
If you’re human, you’ve been hurt. At some point. By someone. Some of our wounds are deep. It’s within here that we repress aspects of ourselves. Did I give pause about answering the initial question? We disassociate from some parts of ourselves. I focus on my present, not on ancient history. We neglect and disown these parts of our psyches.

Please help me pass my driver’s license eye exam. Thank You for sending that kind person who stopped to help when I had a flat tire. Wow, my job has been going really well lately.
Experiencing everything together with Spirit is even more amazing. Read More
What is keeping you from having a closer, more intimate relationship with a Divine Presence? (Also known as God, the Universe, the FP [Field of Potentiality], Holy Spirit, stunt double, personal butler, etc.) Do you hold the concept that you created as a child? Does that still serve you?
As a child, my God was Read More
What is humility? I had always thought it meant realizing that I’m human, imperfect.
Now I have a fuller understanding of humility.
It’s a state of grace. One in which we not only realize that we are human and imperfect, we allow for that. We love and accept our human selves, in the face of our imperfections.
But wait, there’s more. Read More
