It’s one of the central tenets of modern spirituality: if you forgive those who’ve hurt you, you’ll set yourself free. A Course in Miracles preaches it, and so do plenty of spiritual gurus.

Trying to stuff down your authentic nature in order to fit in with the mainstream is a recipe for deep dissatisfaction. Being OK with being different is a big theme this week, and so is the message to make time for enjoying your life instead of being overly focused on the hustle.

Or you put in a request for greater abundance, but your bank balance stays depressingly the same. In situations like this, it’s tempting to become furious with the Universe (been there!) – or worse, to quit spirituality entirely out of the belief it must be BS (yep, been there too!). But before you go down that road, it’s worth considering whether maybe the problem was you. Yep, there are a few ways we accidentally block ourselves from manifesting our goals. You might not have put in a clear order, for example, or you maybe didn’t play your part in bringing the goal to fruition. And sometimes, you’re asking for something that simply isn’t right for you… but we’ll get to that.
Let’s take a deep dive into my top five reasons your reality might not be matching your intentions.Read More
Just like last week, the angels are really hammering home the message that we need to take control of our lives and stop giving away our power to other people (through incessant complaining or blaming, for example). It's a really empowering message this week! They also highlight the need to let go of the past so that we can move forward. Boom!
