Someone I knew once said to me, “I love you”.  I smiled and responded politely, “Thanks. I’m flattered”. I was telling the truth. My ego was indeed flattered to hear those words. Yet because of the actual dynamics between me and that person, I was unmoved, and even felt cynical. Deep down a part of me wanted to say, “If you love me, how come you’re so profoundly disinterested in knowing who I really am?…

If you want to make things happen faster in your external reality, get more sleep. If you want to embody the light of your highest consciousness and be a force of positive change in the world, get more sleep. If you want to attract the right relationships, opportunities, partners and clients into your life, get more sleep. In this episode I talk all about this simple tool to make the life of yours and everyone…

For most people, life is an inner war on a daily basis, from the smallest logistics…need to get out of bed, oh no!…to the paradigm-altering life decisions that you’re too afraid to make. There’s a firmly established command-and-judge program installed in almost everyone, to get the human self behave in such ways that the ego gets what it wants. These inner wars are exhausting (though you may not even be aware of it since you’re…

In this episode of True Voyage I talk about the relationships that don’t “work out”. As long as you’re human, you’ve probably had those. And sucky as they are, those are a primary tool life uses to help you evolve in consciousness. Heartbreak is life’s invitation to you to deepen the love affair with your precious self. And more importantly–for those who are ready–it is also a doorway to your inner freedom and authentic power…if…

Many on the spiritual path believe that they have to diligently work on their beliefs. Because beliefs carry vibrations and “change your thoughts, change your life”, no? While it’s true that beliefs impact your state of being and working on them can be incredibly empowering and life-affirming in certain situations, the belief about the importance of beliefs often becomes counter-productive when it instigates such fear that the ego thinks a witch hunt for negative beliefs…

For many light beings, the purpose of intimate relationships is not what it seems to be. And ultimately, the relationships are there to facilitate the healing and growth of your human self, by allowing you to see and heal what need to be healed in you and by helping you burn through layers of whatever is stopping you from being totally free. Sometimes relationships don’t “work out” because their purpose is to instigate you and to…

Have you ever taken an online personality test? Or believed that you have some inconvenient idiosyncrasies because of a childhood trauma? We live in a world that worships analysis. We like to analyze, evaluate, classify and probe into our own psyche, behaviors, emotions and habits, in the name of “self improvement”. And we like to do this to others even more. This kind of activities, though helpful to certain extent, can quickly become a total…

The other day I got an email from a reader who’s going through her version of inner purgatory. “How can one get through the day when everything feels so heavy and when months and months pass by and there is no relief in sight?” She asked. “How can one trust that a better life is out there, that a better version of me is getting ready to emerge?” Sometimes the journey towards an inner breakthrough…

If you’ve ever lost anyone you loved—to a breakup, a divorce, an illness, a death—you probably wondered, in the depth of those sleepless nights when you were engrossed in pain and enraged against the Universe…what’s the point? No matter whose “fault” it was– yours, theirs, God’s, and no matter how much the outcome could be justified, your pain is real. Your loss is undeniable. Why, indeed, were those precious connections given to you, if…

A common question readers ask me is “How do I find my purpose?” Just this week, someone emailed me and said, “Even though I trust the universe for finding my way. I still question myself so much about how, where, and when. What do I do?” Before we talk about what your mission is, I want to ask you this question: Why do you want to know your purpose in life? What is wrong with not…

↑ That’s a trick title. Gotcha! April fools! Yay! But sweetheart, what make you think it’s a good idea to get them back? In this video, I answer a million-dollar relationship question that’s as old as humanity itself, and that has recently manifested itself in my email inbox as a reader request. I talk about a common relationship pattern of many empathic and energetically sensitive folks, and also… the difference between energetic and earth connections and why…

Wherever there is life, there is pain. If you find that depressing, you’re missing the point of pain. Nobody likes pain. Yet if you spend any time living at all, pain will be as inevitable as the next Christmas. Instead of seeing it as your archenemy in life, how about trying a different perspective? In this video, I explain why pain is neither good nor bad, but merely information that your body wants you to…

A few years ago I was in Arizona one weekend learning horse whispering (just a fancy name for a style of horsemanship that focuses on building rapport with, instead of using force on horses. Actual whispering is entirely optional and probably futile). I’ve always loved horses but had little experience with them. To get things started, the trainer made me stand in a round pen by myself with a chestnut colored beauty. “Let’s first test…

What do losing weight and saving money have in common? The answer: a lot. First of all, both can be filed under the I’d-rather-eat-a-litter-box-than-do-this category. Also, the success rate of accomplishing either among the general population is equal to the probability that you’re Princess Leia’s twelfth cousin. And the most striking similarity between the two is the way we go about them—most people think that both require tons of self-discipline to pull off. The canonical…

The most dreadful time of the year is finally upon you, when you get together with those people you judge the most in the world, so that you could mentally bitch about all their obnoxious quirks while chewing your turkey to death. You don’t mean to judge, of course. You’re a good person. More than a good person, actually. Normally you are generous, kind, self-aware, open-minded, and capable of taking the high road whenever the…

We live in a society obsessed about fixing wounds and finding remedies. We judge, analyze, and create theories about our wounds. We think we are not ok because of our wounds. We take them apart and put them back together. We believe if we could just heal this childhood trauma and cure that emotional disorder, we would finally be happy and free. You can always find more wounds to heal, if you so choose. You…

“I realize I need to love myself more!“ I hear people say that a lot these days. Self-love is hip now. Even my 64 year old mother, who hates internet listacles, emailed me an article the other day called “5 Ways to Love Yourself Before You Leave the House”. “Read that,” my mom said on the phone. “And eat more salad!” Yet it seems nobody has a definitive answer on what self-love exactly entails. The…
