become personalized when they are a part of our individual psyche.
Archetypes provide us with the means to interpret our reality without

can directly interpret our belief system bypassing subjective processes
of thought, logic and reasoning. Find out how to use archetypal energies

Fat Is A Spiritual Issue
Every part of you is perfect, whole and complete. Your appetite is no
exception. Food cravings and a voracious appetite don't mean that
something is wrong with you or that you are weak in any way. Rather,
they show that your appetite is operating exactly as intended. Once you

never overwhelm you again.
Find Your Voice
Communication is often a frail thing, yet, it is at the very essence of
how we express and experience our human "beingness". We are
"broadcasting" at all times. Even when we don't realize it, we are
announcing ourselves and our intentions to the world, equally with what
we do and say, as with what we don't do or say.
The Role of Sacred Sexuality In
What will be uncovered is that the real thing, at any price, is just too
good, too fulfilling, too healing and too magnificent to miss. When we
step into awareness that every time we engage in anything but sacred
