The first step on the spiritual journey is to love thyself.
This is not about narcissistic self-aggrandizement. It is about truly connecting to the truth of the self, knowing and identifying the higher self. This is the purpose of our first course of the year.
It is amazing that we are almost at 2023, and the new year always fills me with a renewed motivations to address the goals, projects, and even those limiting beliefs and shadows that may be blocking me from living my best life.
For the past 3 years we have hosted our course Strengthening Your Spiritual Core, A Journey to Self Love. The purpose of this is to recognize the importance of knowing the true self when walking the spiritual path. It is easy to get caught up in some of the superstition or fears of a world that only honors the material. When we know ourselves, we can journey in the astral realms without fear of losing that connection to our core. We can always have discernment, turning back to ourselves for the answers when we are lost. But until we truly know our true selves, and love ourselves, we do not have that anchor to return us safely home.
Once again we will be coming together to explore the most significant person in each of our lives, ourselves. This year we will also have online content available for those who would like to go further in their exploration.
We have traditionally held our sessions either on or close to the new and full moons. The experience with this, from my perspective, is that using the earths natural rhythms in this work has power for supporting the awakening of self. Our ultimate goal is to become aware of our own inner desires, and to open up the avenues for constant connection to that higher self. Using the natural rhythms of the moon cycles will facilitate this.
If you are interested in joining us for our live sessions in 2023, please send us a message and we will add you to our email list.
Looking forward to seeing you all there with us.

Indeed we do have a purpose. There is nothing more certain in my own soul searching that to realize this truth. We are all here for a reason. To share our gifts. But what it is that I am meant to share?
I was listening to a lecture on the youtube channel Eternalised. It was speaking on the psychology of the Man-Child
The Psychology of the Man-Child (Puer Aeternus)youtu.be/9A7GTGSfrIU
I was curious about this topic, and it struck me that there are two sides of this experience of life. The one is that we don't grow up and instead act forever as the dependent child. The other is that we embrace the creative child within us and live a life full of creative expression.
On of the examples came through the story of Carl Jung's own inner struggles with feelings of depression. In his attempts to discover the source he connected to his innerchild and the things that brought him joy in childhood. Those thing for which he had great passion. In particular, his love of building.
He picked up this hobby, not as a grown man, and found he reconnected to the same feelings of joy. However, instead of building toy castles he built a real life stone tower. A functional work of art that could be considered a physical representation of his inner soul.-life. Hand carved inscriptions surround the building.
This one I like in particular:
Time is a child — playing like a child — playing a board game — the kingdom of the child. This is Telesphoros, who roams through the dark regions of this cosmos and glows like a star out of the depths. He points the way to the gates of the sun and to the land of dreams.
It reminds me that I must remain connected to my inner child if I am to find my way to the light and purpose of life. We so often believe that when we speak of purpose we suddenly have to get dark and serious, but the truth is that our light and joy is what will bring us closer to the highest vibrations and path of atonement (At One Ment).
So connect to your own inner child today. What is it that brings you joy. That is what you are meant to be doing. Create through your childlike spirit, and while you fill yourself up with joy, watch it spread to those around you.
I was listening to a talk by John Stuart Reid on sound and vibrational healing. You can listen to it here. I marked the section that I hadn't realized before. I love numbers, and came up with a system of math visualizing the base 10 system.
So when I saw this section (the video starts at this point), I was very intrigued. I hadn't realized the base 10 was in the sacred numbers. I thought that is was all about 6, or 12, or even 360. So when it was stated that phi - the golden ratio was found in all DNA. His visualization of DNA showed it as a ten-fold structure. Furthermore, he states that all five and ten fold structures contain phi! Although I developed this math for non-traditional learners, there is deep meaning in these forms. I am excited to start to share this math with our young learners. If anyone is interested in volunteering to help us, please contact me at
I was driving to Mason City and just gazing out the window looking at all of the shops and other ideas people had created in the world. I saw a place called “Steel Barn” and thought, “That’s an idea” and another place for Tatoos, “That’s an idea.” There were quite a few car wash places right next to each other. Do you think they stole the idea from one another? Or maybe they all had the same idea at the same time. By the time the third guy opened his shop, that might have seemed like less of a "good ideas".
We drove by a place near Mason City called Parr Farms. They had a giant 7 acre corn maze. I had to stop. What drives someone to create something like this? We spoke to the owner, John, and he was excited, you could feel his enthusiasm. He just said, he had an idea and then asked if we thought it was working. It seemed to be working to me. There was a live band, corn maze, petting zoo with baby piglets and goats, a fire pit, pumpkin and gourd patch, games, a haybale ride. It was pretty wonderful to be there.
Maybe the purpose was not as clear as someone who creates a carwash, but it felt good. There was goodness in his idea, and it seemed he was being true to his vision. He then told us about his plans for next year to create a 14 acre maze. I will definitely make my way over to experience this.
What drives us to create? Where does this drive to create come from. I was listening to a video on Free Masonry (see link below). I had heard of the G representing geometry, and God, but he further elaborates it as Gnosis, and finally the Generative Principle, which is the principle of co-creating with God.
I have often spoken of my belief about creativity as a way of pulling into existence something from a higher realm. But what about the drive to create? In this video, the author talks about CARE. I would call this a person's heart's desire. Care is what creates the drive that allows us to bring our hopes and ideals into reality. For me, the connection to the divine creator comes into play here. It is when we allow this creative force to flow, we co-create with the divine.
So I can see that the G = God and also G = the Generative Principle, and God = the Generative Principle.
I also like Sacred Geometry, if you have never see the math idea I co-created, check it out.
