They say time heals all wounds, but that presumes the source of the grief is finite.” ~Cassandra Clare I lost my father to a heart attack when I was sixteen. I went to school on the morning of April 14, 2008 having a dad and went home that night not having one. I soon found myself dealing with an unfamiliar cocktail of emotions, pain so overwhelming that I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. Every time I thought I was pulling myself together, I’d notice his belt buckle sitting on the dresser, or a pair of his socks on...Read More

What is spiritualism? There are many different definitions to the term that it can get very confusing. Spiritualism is defined as “a religion postulating the belief that spirits of the dead residing in the spirit world have both the ability and the inclination to communicate with the living.” (wikipedia.com) Spiritualism to me is simply the act of being spiritual. What is Metaphysical? Parts of any philosophy that is beyond the natural. Metaphysical is also defined as “The rational science of the supersensuous or supernatural. The science of all that is possible, so far as it is possible.” (the religious...Read More
In 1967, John Lennon wrote a song called, “All You Need is Love.” He also beat both of his wives, abandoned one of his children, verbally abused his gay Jewish manager with homophobic and anti-semitic slurs, and once had a camera crew film him lying naked in his bed for an entire day.
Thirty-five years later, Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails wrote a song called “Love is Not Enough.” Reznor, despite being famous for his shocking stage performances and his grotesque and disturbing videos, got clean from all drugs and alcohol, married one woman, had two children with her, and then cancelled entire albums and tours so that he could stay home and be a good husband and father…

Love is the thing that most (all) people want more than anything in the world. To love and be loved. To feel in every essence of their being that they are worthy of love. And yet, it is the thing that we are most scared of, the thing that we are pushing away without realizing it. … Read more.

Why are we on the move all the time? What is it about traveling that appeals to us so much? Is a trace of some instinct from ancient nomadic lives, or are we just itching to get some sun? Emerson once said that traveling is a fool’s paradise. And I agree. It’s not all smiles, sunshine and happy music playing in the background. Mostly, it is though, but as in all things, there’s two sides to each experience, and traveling definitely has it’s double-edged sword moment. It can show you marvelous places and make you feel new and beautiful...Read More
Popular wisdom tells us that healthy self-esteem is a prerequisite for a healthy relationship—that without sufficient self-love, we’re not capable of truly loving others. Research suggests, however, that while our feelings about ourselves can certainly influence our feelings about others (and vice versa), the connection is more complicated than it may seem. There is actually ample evidence that feelings of worthlessness and self-hatred can interfere with relationships. People with low self-esteem tend to underestimate their partner’s love and view their partners in more negative terms, perhaps because they don’t believe that “a good person” could love them. As a result, they tend to also...Read More
”Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths.” -Joseph Campbell During these past few years I’ve been drawn more and more towards mythology, religion without the religion. Within it, you can find certain keys and lessons to your subconscious; you learn how to act and re-act in this experience, you face lessons that we have been stripped and disconnected from as time passes. You learn! At the fast pace in which everything shifts and changes, it’s all the more difficult to create new myths, nothing is really fixed and bolted down anymore. But we must create them, give birth...Read More
