The Eclipse-Supermoon-Equinox trifecta has come to pass, our cosmic distillation has now moved into a new cycle where we will begin again with a new story.

The eclipse itself was a sight to behold, and unfortunately many of us on this planet were not able to experience it because we were facing the other direction (through no fault of our own).

In case you missed it, or want to relive the experience, here are some of the BEST taken photographs and videos of the eclipse in action.

How to Share a Root Chakra with Everyone

Alright, so we just did this piece here, which very specifically focused on the transformation from friend to partner… and now I would like to expand the fractal to the bigger picture as it relates to everyone, and all of our other relationships that we have.

Brother, Sister, Mother, and Father, Daughter and Son.

I have found that with many of the people I’ve engaged with, we often find ourselves in one of these categories in relationship to each other. It doesn’t always depend on age either, but more so the wisdom and vibration that someone is emanating in relativity to another.

For example, if you were to meet one of those spiritual-super-kids who constantly acts with a complete whole loving energy to everyone, far better than you or anyone you know… You sort of go into a submissive role, don’t you? You become the listener, the learner, the Daughter or the Son.  This also happens with those who you recognize and acknowledge have a greater sense of understanding when it comes to any particular area that they excel at. 

You wouldn’t go up to Einstein and start telling him how physics works, right? Continue reading

How to Share A Root Chakra with your Partner

This morning, I find myself contemplating some really big concepts and trying to wrestle and wrangle how things are supposed to fit together properly…

yinyangIt only makes sense that our supreme form beyond the physical is both a combination of Male and Female energy, in complete union with each other, able to ebb and flow freely with each other in a dance of cosmic light.

And while this concept may seem airy fairy, let me bring it down to the earth and make it physical.

I see relationships failing everywhere I look. It has got to the point where I am truly coming to recognition with the state of the world, there are not many lasting relationship that happen beyond the borders of “Partner and Lover”, that realm of intimacy where two souls collide and become one.

Typically, the most stable relationships that are formed are in the realms of the casual:  ”Brother, Sister, Mother, Father, Daughter and Son”. When I say those, I mean them more as descriptions of the energy. Two best friends could have a real brotherly energy without needing to be brothers. Sometimes you might find a mentor and the two of you have a healthy parent-sibling relationship without actually being genetically related.

So when two come together to be partners and they do cross into that realm of intimacy, it seems to me like there is a chaotic struggle that happens in the root chakra at some point.  You see, this is a shared intimacy with another being that is shared at the root: The base foundational level of existence.

Using the word “Chakras” right

I just wanted to write a quick piece to get this thought out there…

I feel this idea that we need to get the terminology (or more importantly, the vibe) right if we want to keep using some of these words in the communities that consider themselves “new age” or spiritual in some way.  Continue reading

Having a Sense of Purpose Improves Quality of Life

death-and-transformation

Here’s a story that will just make you smile.

A team of researchers at Mount Sinai’s research Centers (both St. Luke & Roosevelt) have been analyzing 10 studies collecting data from more than 137,000 people about life purpose and mortality rates… What they have found is rather poetic, and also completely obvious when you stop and think about it.

The data thus far shows a very clear connection between having a sense of purpose, and living a longer, healthier life.

“Our study shows there is a strong relationship between having a sense of purpose in life and protection from dying or having a cardiovascular event. As part of our overall health, each of us needs to ask ourselves the critical question of ‘do I have a sense of purpose in my life?’”

Could a Psychedelic make you a Billionaire?!

If you’ve been paying attention lately, you might have noticed an in-surge of reports, studies, data, and studies about the use of Psychadelics in all manner of ways.

It’s likely I don’t have to tell you about all of the effects of these substances, there are enough reports to back it up now. There is seriously something amazing about them, and if we can approach it with care and respect, we can learn a LOT about ourselves.

But lets focus this topic in a little bit more, after all, what does this have to do with becoming a “billionaire?” Of course, lets observe it from the perspective that we can use resources to grow and build communities, just so that we don’t get off on the wrong foot about being a money-grubbing fat-cat in a suit.

So… generating resources to change the world with… How exactly does LSD help with that?

In the video you’re about to see, CNN actually covers and discusses what specifically happens in the brain when you are doing LSD, and how it can lead to the building of synaptic connections. In this state, many new ideas and mental pathways are formed, allowing a greater cognitive sense of awareness over the many problems we face in our daily lives.
