Law of Attraction and Spirituality for Non-Hippies

Law of Attraction and Spirituality for Non-Hippies

First of all, let me say that I’m kind of a hippie, and the title is not meant to be hippie-hating. I’m just making a joke that sometimes spirituality seems inaccessible because of the more extreme believers of the beliefs that exist. Know what I am saying? I believe in the law of attraction, but not to the point of being illogical or blind to my reality. I take what I like and what works for me, and I leave…

Sorry I’m Not Sorry: A Critique of SCOTUS, Hobby Lobby and Mainstream Christianity

Sorry I’m Not Sorry: A Critique of SCOTUS, Hobby Lobby and Mainstream Christianity

By: Kevin Mack My turn. I’m sorry I’m not sorry. I just couldn’t hold back anymore. This impacts of the SCOTUS decision are yet to be seen, but even before thinking about those, the issue itself is composed of 12 issues (that I can see): gender discrimination, the education system, the health care system, insurance costs, separation of church and state, income inequality, the working poor, plutocracy, religious freedom, corporate greed, corporate entity, and the (corrupted) judicial system (and appointee process)….

Tools for Manifesting Change in Your Life

There have been times in my life where I was not happy with the circumstances. Recently, I experienced a bout of unemployment. And prior to that, I was single for a long stretch. Sometimes I felt so powerless putting in effort to no avail. I brought in some ways to connect to The Universe to bring in the situations I desired and finally things started to move in a positive direction. When I was single and felt like I was…

Learning Contentment As a Single Mom

By: Kelly Elias  Contentment is something that I really struggle with as a single mom. Well, lets just lay it all out there… As a single mom, as a mother of two very energetic boys, as a full-time teacher and coach, as someone with papers to grade on my own time, as someone with limited income, as someone with dinners and lunches to make and laundry… Well, you get the picture. I’m a diner at a buffet who has filled…

Listening To Your Gut

Listening To Your Gut

By: Melanie Masterson As my job search continues, I face many options for making money and sometimes I just have to listen to my gut. Some jobs may be right for some people, but not right for me. We are each blessed with specific talents through our life experiences and sometimes we need to search to find the job that fits our particular personality. I have been waiting to hear back from an interview a couple weeks ago and in…

Don’t Miss These Messages From Numbers

Don’t Miss These Messages From Numbers

Have you ever seen 11:11 on the clock seemingly on a regular basis and wondered why? The Significance of 11:11 My journey with angel numbers started with this experience. I continued to wonder what it meant and one day I went to a workshop on consciousness at Centerpoint in Houston. The leader said when she was a child everyone thought she was crazy because she thought angels were communicating with her. She said she continued to see flashes of 11:11…

Breathing techniques for when you are having a mental breakdown.

As many of you have read in my earlier posts I am struggling with the whole job quest and the anxiety around what my new career will look like.

That is what I am currently looking for. In the midst of this…

By Sarah Gish, owner of Gish Creative, www.gishcreative.com I just recently returned from a two and a half week road trip that was supposed to be two weeks long but thanks to a fire, it was extended. Artist Amanda Smith and I set off joyously from Houston in my funky HUBBA HUBBA art car on July 23, 2013. Our goal was to work on our separate art projects – mine was my IGNITE YOUR LIFE! photo/video essay on how people…

Sometimes a Stitch in Time Really Does Save Nine…

By Loni Chambers Capshew Oh, not to worry! I don’t pretend to hold all of life’s greatest truths in a Dixie cup, but a lifetime of teaching adolescents and raising three of my own to adulthood has taught me a thing or two about basic human nature, and the funny thing is that I’d say 80 per cent of them are probably based on little truisms expressed by my parents when I was still wet behind the ears myself. Sheesh….

How I Got Rich by Investing in the Iraqi Dinar

How I Got Rich by Investing in the Iraqi Dinar

By Melanie Masterson A few months ago I had a friend tell me about the Vietnamese Dong and how they were planning on changing it’s currency value to match America’s currency value. She said that if you went to a bank and exchanged $60 for 1mil Vietnamese Dong you would end up with 1mil American dollars. They were writing a new jurisdiction that week to change the value of the Dong to equal the value of the dollar. I went…
