A Row of Tombs: Sabine Lucas on Past Lives (Part 1 of 2)

Dr. Sabine Lucas was born in Germany and raised there during the Second World War. She studied German and English language and literature at Heidelberg University. For eleven years,  she instructed undergraduates at Reading University in England in German language and literature while acting part of the time as a German language consultant in the educational programs of BBC London. In the throws of a midlife crisis, she entered a Jungian analysis in London which lasted five years. During this time, she got deeply involved with the many inspiring Jungian events organized for the public by Jungian analysts and theologians in London. This led to a career change and, initially, to a psychotherapy training with the Guild of Psychotherapists in London. After two years of eclectic studies with this experimental group she transferred for a more specialized training to the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich. Here she supported herself financially with dream workshops and the German translation of Jane Roberts' Seth Speaks,...

Welcome to 2014: Insights for the New Year with Elaine Marolakos Edelson

I can’t believe it’s already 2014!  The 2013 year passed so quickly—and with many ups and downs—that it feels great to settle in to a new year and being again. I always love the time of year when we let go of what came before and envision a new way of relating to the world, perhaps expansive, perhaps introspective, but always moving forward and (at least for me) with intention. I don’t use the world resolution, and for many reasons. With each passing year, I learn some new things, I have grown in knowledge and wisdom, and have experienced important moments that I’ll remember forever. Time passes quickly—now more than ever before—and I felt it important to spotlight this fresh start in a new way. This month’s blog post features Elaine Marolakos Edelson, intuitive channel, empath, and astrologer. Elaine is also the author of the highly acclaimed Minutes to Manifesting, which she now uses in her Bodhi System ~ Intuitive Mastery Mentoring Program....

M.J. Rose on Writing, Reincarnation, and Aromas

In the last post we learned about M.J. Rose and her adventures in the publishing world. In this post, we'll learn more about her writing style and inspiration. What is the one thing that always puts you in the space or frame of mind to write when you’re working on a project—even if you’re not feeling particularly inspired? "I have a talisman for every book…an object that belongs to the main character. All I have to do is focus on it. Right now it’s an old silver and amethyst ring that I believe my character, a 16th century perfumer, wore on his forefinger all his life." How do you approach plot when you’re writing a new novel? Do you use an outline in your process? "I spend a long time on my main characters, creating scrapbooks for them filled with all the mementos of their life. I give about three months to this process not writing a word, but finding my characters in the...

Sahvanna Arienta: Author, Entrepreneur, Lightworker (Part 3 of 3)

In this third and final installment, Sahvanna talks about Lightworkers and their healing abilities as well as the importance of the greater community. Here's what she had to say: In a chapter called “Your Most Sacred Conduit” you mention that challenges, problems and issues are ways that the universe brings situations that provide experiences for spiritual growth. What reminders, sayings, mantras or techniques do you employ when you’re experiencing challenges in your own life? “When my heart chakra is wounded, I accept it. I embrace it and I feel love for the experience. We all experience pain, and without owning it, we cannot heal it and release it. Harboring pain and toxic energy in your heart chakra will inhibit your relationships, healing abilities and expansion of your light energy. There are so many books out there that tell you how to be happy, how to have this perfect life, to me that is only setting yourself up to fail. You know the...

Colette Baron-Reid on Coaching, Oracle Cards, Playing Nice in the Sandbox, and The Softail Deluxe

When I first decided to start a blog, I thought about how great it would be to include interviews with people I wanted to support, people whose work I felt was interesting and important, and those I didn't know, but felt compelled to learn more about.  It seemed like a lofty goal, but one that I held in the back of my mind for months. I recently had the opportunity to connect with Colette Baron-Reid and I immediately got the signal that I shouldn't wait any longer to begin a series of interviews for this blog. I emailed her and she quickly responded that she'd be delighted to chat!  I was very excited to have a conversation with her, and I'm delighted now, to bring that conversation to you. Colette Baron-Reid is an intuitive, coach, educator and author.  She's given talks and taught workshops and intensives in the U.S., Canada and Europe. With a background in metaphysics, transpersonal and Jungian psychology, she's worked...
