Today, start sensing your connection to those around you and those at a distance, those incarnate and those in spirit. Close your physical eyes, breathe in the peace around you, and see with the eyes of your heart. Feel yourself part of the Oneness that is our true reality. Namaste!
Just show up. That is one of the first rules of being a writer. Show up. Pick a time, every day, sit in your writing place, position your writing tools, and write. It works. Sometimes resulting in a word, and sometimes in several pages or more. And sometimes in silence. Showing up is the practice that opens the writer and releases the words to emanate into this plane. This is also true of life. Just show up. Whether practicing writing, or running, or painting, or gardening, or meditating, or simply breathing. Just show up with your mind and heart open, and you will find that in this is mindfulness and in this mindfulness is your purpose. Namaste!
I was asked about the circumstance of spirit who when incarnated perpetrated gross injustices and cruelties on members of humankind. Some thought has been given. The answer would appear to be that this is the place of mundane learning, as in that of the tactile and physical held within the grip of illusion. In reality, this is the place of seeking to find a higher awareness and that can be brought on by the practices of meditation, kindness, service, love, etc. It can also be attained by witnessing the inhumanities inflicted on others, as in stirring the attributes of compassion and empathy. This lifetime is transient. What happens here, stays here, except for the growth of the spirit, which is eternal. When we become discarnate and move on to the between times, we reflect on our service or disservice to ourselves and others. The awareness of this knowledge creates the growth we sought while in the body. When we no longer have the body, we become unencumbered by our actions and motivations and instead only retain the lessons learned in the incarnation. Thus, even the most inhumane who walk the earth do so to learn and to teach, though we may not recognize the lessons while we are incarnate. Namaste!
I believe the time is not coming, but is, rather, here now, when we must face the idea that the civilization we are living in is anything but civilized; that we are who we are because of the conquering and massacre of many indigenous peoples, many of whom carried much wisdom and knowledge, based in the recognition of the duality of our reality: we are both physical and spiritual at the same time. That duality is the basis for understanding that we cannot rely on violence and cruelty to solve problems and conflicts. We need to live not in a mean-spirited way but, rather, in a nurturing-spirit manner, where each and every one of us is the caretaker of our fellow beings, whether human or animal. We need to understand that we are all a part of the Creative Spirit, and we exist as aspects of her vision of this expression, best categorized as love. Namaste!

All days are magical, or at least have the possibility of being magical, but there is something especially extraordinary about Summer Solstice when the sun is shining, with the potential of seeing stars lighting up the shortest night sky later. Take a moment today and stand barefoot on the planet and soak in the earth’s energy and let it cleanse and energize your own . . . and give thanks! Namaste!

People are very concerned with their privacy, either their sense of it or the protection of personal data that could be used for nefarious purposes by others. I understand these desires for personal protection, but, on the other hand, it occurs to me that none of us is ever alone or separated from others because of our interconnectedness via the interdependent web. While I would not like my personal data to be shared, I do not think I mind the rest of me being known. As spiritual beings having a physical experience, we are at the same time individuals and part of the One. Namaste!
Today, try to take a moment to focus on breathing, which oftentimes occurs without much conscious thought. For the space of three breaths, close your eyes and feel the breath entering and then leaving your body. In this, be mindful and gentle. When you open your eyes, your world will be more centered because you are. Please join me on www.facebook.com/TobieHewitt.IntuitiveConsultant. Namaste!
