posticon Life Is An Inside Job by John Cali

Many of the recent readings Spirit and I’ve done have an increasingly common thread: The people coming to us have a hellishly hard time believing they create their own realities with their thoughts.

This has always been an issue in the readings we’ve done over the years. But today it’s a much more common and difficult issue for many folks. Maybe it’s something to do with the intensifying energies most of us are feeling these days.

But whatever it is, it’s really grabbed my attention.… Read more

posticon Walking the Path of Death by John Cali

Last week I was watching wonderful documentary on Ram Dass. What a magnificent man, a gift to us all! A true spiritual pioneer.

In part of the film, he was counseling a young woman whose boyfriend had just been brutally murdered. He mostly listened, and she talked.

When she was nearly done, he said, simply, “The death of a lover is a path.” (Meaning a spiritual path that will ultimately bring much good to the person on that path.)

Several days after I watched the Ram Dass documentary, a dear friend wrote me about her beloved cousin who’d just been savagely slaughtered by her own son, stabbed 111 times.… Read more

We received an intriguing question from one of our readers recently. Here it is:

Having given this quite a bit of thought, I am still unable to grasp what part our soul plays in our earthly experience.

Can you shed some light on this?

Spirit

First of all, friends, it’s important for us, at the outset here, to get clear on the relationship between you and your soul.

Your soul decided, before you incarnated into this lifetime, the where, the how, the who, etc.… Read more

posticon Toxic Teaching by John Cali

One of our friends recently wrote us about the religious teachings she grew up with. She speaks of a “different slant” on creating your own reality. I grew up with that same “different slant.” So I can easily relate to what she said.

Here’s an excerpt from her letter:

In my background is a religious teaching that has a little different slant on creating your own reality. The way it’s taught there is frightening and discouraging, more like “It’s your own fault when anything goes wrong.” Especially for the young and inexperienced, this can be quite toxic.… Read more
