Autumn, 2017 Message from the 12 Archangels

Autumn 2017 Message from the 12 Archangels Our message to humanity begins by saying, “all are in shock.” The primary divine law of Schoolroom Earth states “when one is harmed, all are harmed.” From the perspective of Heaven, every human being is feeling the trauma of the events of the past few weeks, months, years and centuries. The weather mirrors back to the human collective what the present emotional state is of the human collective. This does not diminish the… Read more

Spiritual Loneliness in Families

It shocked me that the ones I felt closest to—my husband, Steve, an agnostic with Greek Orthodox background, and my Jewish parents—had the hardest time adjusting to my Christian commitment. The more intense the bond, the greater was their sense of disorientation and betrayal. They simply didn’t see it coming. They knew only one facet of my personality—the familiar, verifiable, and taken-for-granted side. No one should ever presume to know someone through and through, especially a loved one. To their… Read more

Journaling as a Path to Your Spirituality

My spiritual coming of age happened against the backdrop of a loving, albeit quirky family–who cultivated their secular Judaism amidst South Carolina’s Bible Belt culture. The day I told my Dad that I had embraced Christianity, he said, “If you were younger, I could put you over my knee and spank you.” At thirty-seven, I had insulted my Jewish family and every generation preceding them. Remarkably, after thirty years of belief, I have assimilated Christian resolve with my personal identity and resumed a… Read more

How the Quaker Religion Teaches Contentment in a Chaotic World

According to published reports in 2016, out of the U.S. population of 324,118,787 people, a mere 76,360 were Quakers. That’s like siphoning a gallon of water out of the Atlantic Ocean. Also, according to reports in the news, we are a seriously divided country. By economics, religion, race, ethnicity, education, language, politics, you name it. And noisy. Everyone’s always yakking at each other and often in not so cordial ways. Frankly, it’s a wonder we ever accomplish anything. Within this… Read more

‘Conversations with Neale’ Helps us Apply Practical Spiritual Principles to Everyday Life

Neale Donald Walsch knows about uncertainty. He knows about the mental and emotional toll of dire circumstances. He knows what it is like to reach the “end of line” when you can’t go any farther because you’ve hit rock-bottom. He knows because in the early 1990’s Walsch suffered a series of crushing blows—a fire that destroyed all of his belongings, the break-up of his marriage, and a car accident that left him with a broken neck. Once recovered, but alone… Read more

The Quantum Physics of Donald Trump

Here in the U.S., one of the stranger things in American history occurred this past November: the election of Donald Trump as the next President of the U.S. I say strange on a number of accounts: because Trump is an odd and peculiar character, and because his election took a confluence of events to line up. On one level, Trump is a bundle of contradictions: a billionaire born with a silver spoon in his mouth who appeals to populist values;… Read more

What does it mean to pray? Lessons from Standing Rock

  A few weeks ago, I returned from a journey to Standing Rock, where three members (including myself) of the Brooklyn Center for Sacred Activism joined Oceti Sakowin for a few nights. But, I should tell you that I didn’t get back from a week of protesting and fighting for justice. I spent the week on a meditation retreat, a retreat during which I arose with the sun for morning prayers and walked in mindful prayer the rest of the… Read more
