Each full moon is a time to celebrate fullness and abundance. It’s the culmination of a cycle of growth and expansion. Last month during the full moon I did something new and interesting. I was walking around my neighborhood, enjoying the sight of the moon through the trees, feeling the moonlight on my skin. The wind blowing from the ocean felt refreshing and healing. As I strolled under the moonlight, I was suddenly inspired to start reciting affirmations about fullness. I am full of love. I am full of confidence. I am full of abundance. I am full of compassion. I had never … [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.
The final eclipse of the 2017 cycle promises to be a dramatic event as the moon blots out the sun across the US mainland on August 21. I can feel in my bones this is going to be a powerful spiritual event for all of us, even if we won’t be able to view the eclipse event. The waves of energy created by this eclipse will affect the Earth and all her inhabitants for many months to come. Essentially, the moon will be disrupting the usual flow of energy for a brief period. As a result new codes of awakening and transformation will be unleashed by the cosmos toward the Earth plane. These new … [Read more...]
“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...]
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: Which guide or angel am I supposed to be working … [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. I opened a browser window on my laptop and typed in her website address, mamikomaridianna.com. A completely white screen appeared. No error message. Nothing. This was indeed a problem. 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...]
