A new year, a new board

    We are nearing the close of 2017. For many, it’s a time of reflection, celebration and anticipation for the new year. It certainly is for Eryn and I. Just as one would do with friends, we have a tradition of getting together with our spiritual guides. We laugh. We reflect. We express our gratitude for each other. This year-end meeting was particularly special since it’s the first time we are using the new “Convergence Board,” which we designed and produced. Our guides joined together as a Collective to offer a special blessing for our new board, which they… [read more]

#MeToo: Should we shame or transform?

    Is social shaming productive? Or does it drive an issue underground, allowing it to grow and later emerge even stronger? This was the heart of our conversation today as Elena and I discussed the #MeToo movement, a social chain reaction resulting from the New York Times article last October, detailing decades of alleged sexual harassment by producer Harvey Weinstein. Khaled, one of our spiritual guides who regularly participates on the board, joined us to explore this topic further. “And what is your emotional response to these stories?” Khaled asked of this pervading shadow in our ‘collective conscious.’ I started by… [read more]

Scarcity: Mother nature suffers silently

    In just the past two months, our spiritual guides have invited other ‘beings of light’ to join us on the board.  Eryn and I sensed there was a matter of urgency for on both occasions they have expressed concern and wanted to “bring a message to earth’s children.”  Back in June, Arpad spoke about mankind’s fear of “scarcity” and how it is impacting our planet. You can read about it here. Today, we were joined with another new friend, Seriph. While I tried asking about the escalating threat of North Korea, his focus was also about fear of scarcity and… [read more]

Scarcity: The most vile of illusions

  I remember the day when my son brought home a stray dog, which he named ‘Charlie.’ Charlie seemed like a sweet dog, even though he was a little apprehensive with me. I knew he had been roaming the streets for some time; he was clearly undernourished. So I quickly borrowed a bowl from Bella (our four-legged family member), filled it with food, and set it down. Charlie gobbled it up in minutes. When Bella innocently approached the now empty bowl, Charlie attacked her violently. Even though Charlie’s belly was full, his sweet demeanor turned into anger and aggression. This story… [read more]

Our launch, our intention

We are truly excited to be launching our blog today, which includes a collection of many of the conversations we’ve had with our board members over the past year. At this auspicious moment, we held a special meeting with our board members—for the blog has truly been a co-creation with them. For the first time, they came together as a ‘collective’ [vs individually], an energy quite distinct, yet a resonance which was familiar to us. Here we share their intention [and ours] for the blog and celebrate with much joy the launch of what we hope will be a platform to serve others.… [read more]

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 in Syria to name a few. So we are in a particularly somber mood today, wondering why there seems to be an escalation of violence and terrorism… [read more]

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 star and hold it in your heart. You now hold all within you that has ever existed. Is this not magic? Delicious magic that permeates the… [read more]

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 distraction 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 ending political rhetoric and chatter, making it difficult to distinguish truth and deception clearly. We questioned if we can expect a genuine expose of the Panama Papers… [read more]

A New Year’s message to humanity

It’s the last day of 2015. Amidst the celebrations here and around the globe, Eryn 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 you will find the time to be in the silence of your wisdom. With all our gratitude and best wishes for you.        … [read more]

Turning inward as individuals, as a nation

The Syrian refugee crises continues to heighten. Now, more than 11 million people (half of the country’s pre-war population) have either died or been forced from their homes since the war in Syria began in 2011. And while there are many other refugees fleeing from their homes in other parts of the globe—Iraq, Democratic Republic of Congo, Gaza, South Sudan, and Somalia to name a few—our attention to the plight of the Syrians has been center stage. Sadly, it wasn’t until the tragic image of a Syrian boy washed up on the shores of Turkey that many of us began to truly feel… [read more]
