Are you a teacher or a student in your everyday life?
Notice which answer comes to mind immediately.
Look at the patterns of behavior you exhibit regularly and unconsciously: are you answering others' questions often or seeking information regularly?
Which direction do you tend to go in a room full of people: are you a speaker or a listener?
Confession: This is actually a trick question. You are BOTH a teacher and a student. You have the gifts of speaking and listening. You have the expertise to share and digest. You are equipped to play both roles: giving and receiving, offering and accepting. They are a balancing act within that we bring to the world.
The answer you choose first will reveal what voice is louder in your Being: your Soul voice or your Ego-mind voice. And before rushing to any judgments or conclusions that one is "better" than the other, keep in mind that both are necessary and valuable. Both are parts of you.
Teaching is a service that we offer to others looking for wisdom, understanding, and new information about themselves. Teaching is giving.
Studying is being open to new information and willing to apply it to life for greater growth and balance. Studying is receiving.
We often lean to one role over the other unconsciously because it is more comfortable, or more empowering, or more of a natural fit. Yet we must not lose sight of the need to balance both giving and receiving for our greatest possible growth. We are gifted with both abilities and have the power to use them for the highest good for All.
Honor your wise Soul as a teacher with qualifications, experience, knowledged and gifts to offer. Honor all who are willing and open to be students of your wisdom.
Honor your wise Self for being an open student eager to learn new information and expand beyond a known comfort zone. Honor your teachers for all they give to you.
Both parts of you are needed and essential. Both are gifts you can offer and share. Both have the potential to elevate you to higher levels of self-knowledge and personal empowerment.
What do YOU as a Teacher look like in the Real World:
- Teaching classes on a topic that brings you joy naturally
- Sharing tutorials and how-tos on a blog or website
- Offering additional insights in everyday conversations
- Writing "just because"
- Nurturing and encouraging growth in others
What do YOU as a Student look like in the Real World:
- Seeking answers willingly to any topic of personal interest
- Scheduling sessions with other practitioners
- Attending conferences around a passion
- Reading "just because"
- Planting seeds in any area of life and nurturing them for growth
Most likely both of these lists connect to your area of expertise and growing interests.
For today, simply hold the intention to grow in both areas. Balance yourself internally with the knowingness that you are a Master at giving and receiving. Honor yourself as a Master who is expanding and growing in each role.
You are gifted with the wisdom of teaching and the wisdom of learning.
Go out there and SHINE.

For the artists, inspired creatives, authors, healers, and spiritual teachers, I would bet you have creative passion in spades.
But maybe all of the numbers, data, and tech-y stuff of your business is causing you to struggle or get discouraged?
Business stuff doesn't have to be scary or intimidating.
Most authors and solopreneurs focus on their passion (yes!) but forget about the important business stuff (craaaaap) until it's too late. Or only when they have an uncomfortable meeting with their tax professional or financial advisor (gulp).
But before you even have to imagine a dreaded conversation about what you're NOT doing right, I can turn all of this business stuff around for you in a practical, easy-to-get it way.
Many people who are pursuing their creative passion don't know what it means to really run a business on their own - and honestly, it might not even be your strength.
But it is your responsibility to know it.
And I can make it easier for you.

"Three things cannot be long hidden: the Sun, the Moon and the Truth." (Buddha)
I love quotes, and there are a lot of them that speak to me about various phases of life, main themes, and different life lessons. That's true for all of us, right? But this one caught my soul's attention because it reinfornces that Divine theme of truth that is showing up in various parts of my life right now, and maybe yours, too.
In every area of my world, I am hearing that special little whisper inside asking, "What is your truth about this situation/person/idea? Are you connecting to that truth? Are you living from it?"
I used to kinda-sorta know the whisper was there and acknowledge it when my stomach started to turn abruptly or I couldn't find clarity about something. I was in a regular state of go-go-go and wanted to be doing what was convenient and known and planned.
But now I've regularly been allowing that truth whisper to step right up to the microphone and blare out its message as a soloist. Turning a truth whisper into a truth speakerphone is quite an incredible thing! (And I can tell you this much - it makes going to the grocery store a much longer trip because apparently Cheetos are no longer connected to my personal truth.)
With that whisper-to-speakerphone change, a new world view has taken shape around me: relationships, events, lessons and priorities all look different. Now there's so much more focus on what I love to do, and what I want to create, and new dreams to discover, and the fabulous internal chanting of "I can do that, oh yes I can." My inspiration is through the roof and barrelling ahead at top speed! If only there were 26 or 27 hours in the day!
But wait. That just puts me back on a fast-track and go-go-go. That isn't what I want. That isn't my full truth nor my full intention.
And that brings me to the other reason why this quote grabbed my soul's attention:
The Sun and the Moon represent balance and honoring the cycles of life.
The natural ebb and flow of energy in motion. The need for both action and stillness. Truth is only one out of "three things that cannot be hidden long." The Sun and the Moon must be allowed to shine equally as well. Movement and rest, action and contemplation, walk and sit.
When I combine these acts of balance with my connection to truth, the rewards are ten-fold and beyond. My intuition is more focused and accurate; my body feels stronger and more relaxed; my mind is clearer and calmer. Truth is more present and prominent. The balance is natural and easy. The Sun and the Moon keep Truth moving along perfectly.
So when I see the shining Sun in all its splendor, and then glimpse the beautiful Moon in all its glowing glory, I know between the two there is a Divine place for Truth to stand. And I want to be standing in that place of balance and living from it.
May this resonate with a truth for you right now, and affirm that you can trust what feels right in big ways.

Your current life is only a fraction of the energies you have experienced as a soul.
When viewed from higher consciousness, you open up to the fullness of your soul story and a broader understanding about who you are as a soul, as well as the energies you are experiencing in this incarnation.
You as a soul are composed of many stories, and through your life, the energies of those stories are activated with the intention of guiding you to higher levels of consciousness.
Surely somewhere along your path you have asked yourself:
"Why has my life unfolded in this way? Why do I experience certain themes, or repeating patterns, or ongoing relationship dynamics and lessons? Why are some emotions bigger for me, and yet not as prevalent for other people? Why do I carry specific dominant needs that other people in my family do not relate to?"
For example, if you have experienced a theme of betrayal or abandonment in your life, where did that energy begin? If you have felt deep fears around your emotional expression, how did that originate for you as a soul? If you have found yourself locked into many ego battles with others, what is being triggered within you that can be released now?
Or perhaps you have noticed a theme in your life around lower female or masculine relationships that you wish to inject greater consciousness into because you want more authentic connections with other people. Whatever energies and themes may be prevalent for you, you will find greater understanding to them in healing your soul imprints.

When my website (this one you're on) debuted in 2011, I was both ecstatic and anxious because there were no other websites on consciousness out there.
A lot of blogs were focused on self-help, lifestyle, food, inspiration, crafts, astrology, and more. But I hadn’t found a spiritual website on consciousness, so who knew what would come of this idea. No guarantees, but hey, give it a shot. Within months, people found the website, signed up for emails, joined the membership area (now closed), enrolled in astrology classes, and asked for personal sessions. All great feedback! Good to see that this content was useful and connecting with people.
Yet as my website grew in homepage views and blog sharing, I started to be targeted by someone with a bigger following who duplicated what I offered. It could only loosely be called “plagiarism” (in legal terms) yet it was all too close for comfort to me.
It smelled wrong.
I had never followed her, or even knew what she was doing; I never read her books or even visited her website. I wasn’t interested in her work because I had been there-done that years ago. In other words, she was never on my radar, but somehow I ended up on hers. I found out about it through other people. I paid it very little attention and stayed focused on what I could create, offer, and share in the world, including publishing my first book.
Then a trend started to emerge that would last for six years.

"The Souls of people on their way to Earth-life, pass through a room full of lights;
Each takes a taper - often only a spark - to guide it in the dim country of this world.
But some souls, by rare fortune, are detained longer - have time to grasp a handful of tapers, which they weave into a torch.
These are the torch-bearers of humanity - its poets, seers and saints - who lead and lift the race out of darkness, toward the light.
They are the law-givers, the light-bringers, way-showers, and truth-tellers, and without them, humanity would lose its way in the dark."
