“If only I had started doing yoga ten years ago, I would feel so much better about myself today.” “I should have learned how to touch-type in high school. Now it’s too late.” Have you ever had thoughts like this? Most of us do occasionally. We look into the past with regret. We wish we had had enough foresight or will power back in the past so that our lives would be easier or more joyful today. When I catch myself thinking it’s too late to start something new or wondering if I’m too old, I remember an old Chinese proverb: “The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The … [Read more...]

As ever-evolving souls, we incarnate into human form first and foremost for the experience. We also come to assist our sisters and brothers in their own evolutionary journeys. Our spiritual growth is determined by how much we consciously choose learn from our experiences.
I remember how thrilled I was when I began communicating with spirit guides and angels. During healing sessions and meditations, it was exciting to feel the presence of non-physical beings, to know I was talking to spirit and receiving messages from beyond the veil. But after a while, I started having doubts about what I was doing. Sometimes I'd get bored connecting with the same guide all the time (and then feel guilty that I was having such a thought!) Here’s a question many of us ask at some point in our spiritual journeys: Question: Which guide or angel am I supposed to be … [Read more...]
Mamiko knocked on my office door. “Sweetheart, we have a problem, “she said. “My website is gone.” It was 3:30am. Because we were both suffering from jet lag after our long trip to Egypt, we were working and sleeping at odd times.

Mamiko’s website is a cornerstone of our family business, and this was a critical time for us. We were in the midst of promoting and accepting registrations for half a dozen … [Read more...]
A few months ago I posted a message asking if people we’re interested in learning how to communicate better with their spirit guides. I was pleasantly overwhelmed by the response. So, I've decided to post a series of short articles to share what I’ve learned about talking to spirit over the last 20 years. In each article I’ll answer a common question or share a useful tip. My heartfelt goal is to help you feel more connected and more confident about your communications with your guides and angels. I talk to non-physical beings every day. Sometimes I speak out loud, especially when I’m … [Read more...]
Earlier this year I was in the middle of a week-long road trip on the Big Island of Hawaii. I became very frustrated while driving. No matter where I was, it felt like everyone else on the road was driving too slowly. And every red traffic light was much too long. All I wanted to do was to drive freely and move forward, but it felt like everyone and everything was getting in my way. Have you ever felt like this in some area of your life? Thankfully, my higher self and guides gently reminded me that everything I experience in life—without exception—happens for my benefit. Even … [Read more...]
