Do you have days when all you want to do is to shut the door, close the blinds and curl under a blanket? Me too. On the days when nothings feels right and you feel sad/mad/unmotivated/full of doubts, it’s the natural tendency of the mind to fill in the blanks, conjuring up stories about a thousand things that are going wrong in your life. It may be easy to believe that those stories are the…

LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE ON SOUNDWISE Most of us are driven by two conflicting desires: on one hand we want to feel we’re special. The whole mission of the ego is to maintain an individual identify that makes you feel separate from the rest. Being special feels good in that sense. But on the other hand, most time we’re unwilling to make the choices which make that specialness come out and shine. There’re lots of…

LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE ON SOUNDWISE Many people who’re experiencing internal awakening told me they felt tired and trained all the time, to the point of not being able to complete daily routines, let alone doing productive work. And human interactions feel especially draining. Every physical experience has a spiritual aspect. The so-called “chronic fatigue” is no exception. In this episode, I talk about a common reason of why you feel drained all the time.…

LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE ON SOUNDWISE Different cultures and human societies have used rituals and ceremonies as a tool to manifest changes and usher in new energies, for thousands of years. Creating your own rituals can be a great way to bring your conscious mind and your subconscious into alignment to bring about desired changes in your internal and external worlds. In this episode, I explain the four essential elements of any powerful ritual and…

I’m sure you’ve noticed…you behave differently around different people. Each relationship of yours fulfill specific psychological and energetic needs for you and the other person. There’re implicit contracts we have with everyone in our life—most time we’re not aware of it—regarding what we give and what we receive in the relationship. That’s why most relationship dynamics are quite stylized— we tend to interact with someone in the same way over and over. Even when a…

Hey guys, this is episode Eight of the True Voyage soundcast and today I want to talk about…delays. Have you had the feeling that going through life is like being stuck in traffic? You’re never going anywhere that you want to go fast enough and you wonder, well, when exactly is this going to happen? When am I going to finally reach my goals? Or is this ever going to happen at all? Sometimes life…

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…

For the light of your consciousness to illuminate the world, For you to become the healing presence you came to this planet to be, first you have to BE HERE. That sounds plain and simple. But for many energetically sensitive beings walking the path of liberation and authenticity, we are never fully “here”. Because we feel so much and the world can be so damn painful and overwhelming. So we keep one foot out of…

Most people think of happiness as the passive reward one gets for doing something right or getting one’s way. But happiness is in fact one of your fundamental responsibilities to the world. If you want to make a positive impact on this earth, then start with actively pursuing happiness–not as a byproduct of your other worldly or spiritual goals, but as a state of being that is your new default. In this video I talk…

Many believe that the solar eclipse that’s ongoing today (Aug 21) has been affecting both the world affairs and individual lives in creating chaos, conflicts and disharmony. Personally I’ve had a turbulent week emotionally and energetically. When I mentioned it to a friend, she immediately went, “oh, it’s because of the solar eclipse!”. Is it? When things don’t go our way, most of us instinctually reject the situation as unacceptable. And in order to make…

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…

Many claim they want more freedom. But few are actually able to handle real freedom. The truth is whatever constraints and limitations we have in life also provide security, predictability and comfort. Most people would rather have that…than freedom. Though it may seem otherwise, what’s really stopping you from having more freedom is not external constraints. But rather, internal alignment.

If you want to achieve something that’s bigger than who you are right now, you need to be bigger than who you are right now. That seems pretty obvious, right? But few people actually manage to do that. And there’s a reason for it. In this video, I talk about the internal shift that will give you so much more courage, resilience and creativity in pursuing your dreams. It’s four simple words, yet infinitely powerful.…

If you want to stay fit physically, you should go to the gym and exercise regularly. If you want to stay fit spiritually, you should go to the gym also– to the gratitude gym. Gratitude is a powerful state of being. It expands your existence, opens your heart, lifts your spirit, and makes you an all-around cool person. It also creates the internal alignment for you to make whatever dreams of yours come true. I was feeling…

Lots of my readers ask me when they will find “the one”. Recently I got this message from a lovely person: “I want to meet a love partner, but it just doesn’t seem to come my way yet. Mind you I am not desperate. But I have a lot of capacity for love. I don’t know where to direct it except to my family. I’d love to have a baby, but that’s apparently not coming my…

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…

“Ego” is the scapegoat word that some people blame every undesirable human quality on. It’s a concept that, more often than not, masks the lack of clarity in awareness, rather than helping to create constructive internal change. In this video, I talk about what ego is — the part of your consciousness that is programmed to preserve the most recent version of an isolated individual identity. I also talk about how most “self improvement” schemes center…

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…

Do you feel like others don’t understand you? Are you frustrated for not being seen? Welcome to the club. We all long to be seen, and feel bad when it doesn’t happen. Do you know why they don’t see you? It’s simple. You’re HIDING. It’s not them. It’s you. Before you say, “But…”, watch the video. I’ll explain what I mean, and tell you what you can do to change it. “Most people are in perpetual hiding…

Is “working on yourself” working for you? A reader who’s going through a tough period in her personal transformation asked for help. She felt “as if everything I’ve ever worked for internally and spiritually has been efforts for nothing at all”. Sound familiar? Then watch the video. In this video, I talk about–obviously–whether “working on yourself” is a useful pursuit. Hint: the answer is yes and no, because I’m excellent at dodging questions. I also talk about: why…
