Home - Introduction
This website presents a new way to bring profound, lasting change into our lives. Learn how to open the door to healing, to spiritual growth, and to a deeper understanding of our true nature by working consciously with your spiritual companion/teaching guide. Doing so strengthens our ability to confront the truth about ourselves, our lives and our experiences. It has nothing to do with religion, and everything to do with the fact that we are children of the Universal Intelligence (God, Source, Creator).

The thoughts we "feed" ourselves (our spiritual nutrition) are every bit as important as the nutrients we eat and drink (our physical diet). A steady spiritual diet of fear, anger, worry or guilt is much like a steady physical diet of potato chips, candy and soda pop. Find out how to change a poor spiritual diet into one that is rich in positive thoughts, attitudes and emotions, belief systems and desires, and watch as our automatic responses to difficult people and situations mature and improve.

The importance of our thoughts cannot be overstated. Nothing exists in physical without first having existed in thought. Our thoughts drive our every action or inaction. The state of humanity is what it is today because of our thoughts. If we are ever to change the world, we must first change ourselves; we cannot change ourselves unless and until we recognize - and reduce and refine - our own thoughts.

'Our Spiritual Nutrition' is made up of the thoughts, attitudes, emotions, beliefs and desires we feed ourselves every day:

components of our spiritual nutrition

A healthy spiritual diet enables us to feel joy, love and optimism and frees us to be kind, generous, patient and tolerant not only with others but also with ourselves.

Spiritual malnutrition occurs with chronic negativity. A constant stream of complaining, fear, anger, worry, guilt or resentment is literally spiritual junk food, much like a steady physical diet of potato chips, candy and soda pop.

Spiritual malnutrition prevents lasting fulfillment, happiness, inner calm or peace, satisfaction, success or any other positive results; it will also create many of life's negative life experiences such as addictions, co-dependent relationships, chronic pain and diseases, repeated failures and always feeling like a victim.

Review the following self-assessment list. If three or more of the statements apply, then your spiritual diet may be placing your physical health at risk:
  • I want everyone to like me.
  • I pretend to be happy but I’m really not.I blame others if things don’t go my way.
  • I give up if things don’t work right the first time.
  • I’m always in pain.
  • I cry a lot.
  • I have lots of ideas about what I’d like to do, but no one will help me.
  • I have a hard time falling asleep and it's even harder to get up in the morning.
  • I fall asleep fast but wake up after a couple of hours and can’t get back to sleep.
  • I hate what my life has become.
What can we do about it?
Since we choose our spiritual diet, and since our spiritual nutrition creates our reality, we have the power to change our reality. Refining and reducing our negative thoughts, attitudes, emotions, beliefs and desires enables us to improve our health, our relationships and, ultimately, our lives.

Food for thought
Just think of the billions of dollars and vast resources that could be spared, if we were to forgive those who had harmed us. Chronic diseases could be avoided, along with harmful acts done to others caused by our despair, anger or hatred.

We live our reality, so let's make it the best one possible.
