Uniqueness Through Almonds

Uniqueness Through Almonds

I’ve just been reminded of our uniqueness in an interesting way: an updated food allergy blood panel. I won’t bore you with the list, but there was one interesting finding.

 

The test revealed a high reaction to almonds. I’ve been eating almond butter (although I prefer peanut) and almond milk (although I prefer soy) on the advice of well-meaning friends who know food. Turns out my body is just fine with peanuts and soy, but almonds are a big “no thanks.”

 

Food is such a hot-button issue. I share this because here almonds illuminate a wonderful truth: we each have to find what works for us, no matter what works for others, in no matter what area of life.

 

Finding out may take some exploration, be it a diagnostic process or meditation on what you’d really like for your own true expression, joy, and peace. Sometimes we borrow someone else’s truth for a time when we have lost touch with out own. In my younger years, I became a computer programmer on my father’s advice. That worked for a while and then became unbearable as I found my own path.

 

If you’re operating on someone else’s information, you may notice if that is still working for you in present time. Borrowed truths must be released when it’s time (and not before it’s time).

 

If you aren’t sure what’s right for you; be it in your work, your relationships, what you eat, your celebration of holidays, or anything else; you stand at the beginning of a great adventure of discovery. What a great place to be!

Something like, “Manifestation isn’t attracting what you want, Manifestation is attracting what you are.” We are reality generators. We’re manifesting all the time without thinking about it. When we think purposefully, produce an image of a potential reality, and fuel… Continue Reading

The Problem With Predictions

When folks come in for a reading, they are often curious about their future. They ask, “When will I meet my soul mate?” “Where will I be in 5 years?”, “Will I get out of debt?”. Often there is fear behind the questions, with thoughts of the future tied to worry, anxiety, and worst-case scenarios.… Continue Reading

Turbulence

Last weekend we flew into Phoenix to visit some friends who’ve recently relocated there. On the descent, the plane hit massive turbulence. As we bumped along, there was a mixture of reactions among the passengers.   Some released excited hoots, as if on a roller coaster. Some held tight, trying not to move at all. A… Continue Reading

Life On Earth

Life On Earth

There’s a common misperception in spiritual circles that if one sets their energy “just right,” then nothing unpleasant will ever happen. When a challenge inevitably arises, the person wonders what they did wrong.   This idea has a large dose of that punishment and reward energy we see in judgmental, dogmatic paradigms. I think of it… Continue Reading
