hi

 

We’re Elena and Eryn.

A mother-daughter team sharing our passion for spirituality and personal growth. We are not gurus or sages who have all the answers. Not by any means. Better said, we are eternal students of the human experience, our world at large, and beyond.

We meet regularly with a forum of great philosophers—divine beings of light, love, wisdom and humanity—who have joined with us to share their perspectives, insights, and [sometimes] playful discourse. We like to think of them as our spiritual think tank, our board of advisors.  

 

They have expanded and elevated our understanding of world affairs, our view of humanity, and what it means to live to our greatest and truest potential with purpose and joy.

 

They have expanded and elevated our understanding of world affairs, our view of humanity, and what it means to live to our greatest and truest potential with purpose and joy.

This site is devoted to sharing ideas and a different way of seeing things. We talk about events in the US and globally that intrigue or concern us. We question the status quo. We share our own personal experiences and insights that help bring perspective to our lives, and hopefully to yours too. Our hope is that you realize your uniqueness, your unlimited possibilities. To inspire in you a higher way of being and experiencing life. And in doing so, help restore humanity’s true reflection.

Honoring our collective origins
Honoring our collective origins
It’s the first week of July and we ended another week of more senseless violence: the deaths of Philander Castile in Minnesota and Alton B. Sterling in Louisiana at the hands of the police.  Then there was the shooting of the Dallas policemen, said to be in retaliation. And all of this came on the heels of the Istanbul airport attack, leaving 45 people dead and 230 injured, the coordinated bomb attacks in Baghdad, and the ongoing violence...
What does water symbolize for you?
What does water symbolize for you?
Water is an element with innumerable qualities. Water can be murky or transparent. It can drown or quench thirst. It can be soft as a trickle or forceful, removing obstacles in its path. It can destroy or spring forth new life. Today, we were each asked by our board to describe what water symbolizes. Their perspective, as always, was deep and meaningful. The words we use to describe water can represent the emotional energy we...
Restoring humanity’s true reflection
Restoring humanity’s true reflection
One of the most wondrous revelations I’ve had since I began this journey is spirit’s perspective of us— humanity—and the experience of our physical life. The expansiveness and richness of our experience in the development of our souls. The fact that we are all beings of light, each unique but part of the collective too. Last October, our dear friend Khaled expressed this ever so eloquently, “So let us leave you with this—find in the sky a distant...
Discernment: The impartial meditator
Discernment: The impartial meditator
The debates, the town halls, and the pundits hashing out e-v-e-r-y word spoken (and tweet tweeted) by the candidates. It can be exhausting, and for some, an entertaining ctraction from an otherwise mundane work day. Not to say the 2016 election isn’t important. It should be. But amidst the 24/7 news coverage of the elections, are we paying attention to other issues like the Panama Papers? Eryn and I talked about the current state of affairs, the never...
Co-creation (and creativity) in action
Co-creation (and creativity) in action
Our board may be viewed by some as atypical, we admit. There is no dissemination of documents or an agenda But we hold ourselves to some conventionalities. Our board is governed by the powers, duties, and responsibilities of, let’s just say, our bylaws of the highest consciousness. And when it comes to important matters, such as the idea of this blog, we confer with our board of advisors for...
The Alchemist: Exploring a recipe for happiness
The Alchemist: Exploring a recipe for happiness
It’s nearly March and for the first time in my life, I haven’t drafted up the “proverbial” list of goals to achieve this year: increase my business income by 30%, increase my retirement contributions by 20%, lose those extra 10 pounds, commit to working out at the gym, sign up for that sculpting class, etc. The list goes on; you know the drill. I’ve always been goal driven. It gives me a sense of purpose, knowing I’m...
The unconscious mind & overcoming self-criticism
The unconscious mind & overcoming self-criticism
If we look into the mirror with honesty, we would all admit to times when we have doubted our decisions, our abilities, perhaps even our character, and allowed that voice of self criticism to set in. I’m sure in their quiet moments, the likes of Richard Branson, Oprah, Warren Buffet, Mother Teresa and Obama have questioned their lives. After all, this is part of the human experience, right? Well it was one of those weeks for...
A New Year’s message to humanity
A New Year’s message to humanity
It’s the last day of 2015. Amidst the celebrations here and around the globe, Lauren and I set aside a few minutes to connect with our board members for a toast and a quick message for the New Year. They shared with us a personal message about what we each should release and embrace in 2016 (more on this to come). But before parting, they asked if they could offer a message to you. We pass this on with the hope...
Interviews with Khaled: Boarding the board
Interviews with Khaled: Boarding the board
Two months have passed since Khaled introduced himself. He had become one of our regular board members by now and always made invaluable contributions to the conversation, whether it be world affairs or personal matters. But today I had a mission. I had several random questions burning inside and was anxious to get some answers. Who decides to come on the board? Exactly how does the planchette move? Does reincarnation truly exist?...
Gratitude: An expansive muscle
Gratitude: An expansive muscle
It’s the day before Thanksgiving and we’ve been busy with the usual prepping, something I enjoy every year. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It’s doesn’t require lines at the mall to spend money you don’t have on gifts, just because it’s expected. Or two-hour waits at a restaurant for Mother’s Day. No, it’s about spending time with family, good food, and giving thanks for all that we have in our lives. I say this for those...
