We are forever growing and expanding.

I have a confession to make: I tend to be a bit judgmental of people in the healing world who move from one modality to another, in an endless procession of new classes and certifications.  Today they’re a massage therapist, next year they’ve added Reiki and tapping to their list of credentials.

Enough, I always think.  Just practice your trade and stop getting, getting, getting!

But now I have another confession to make: I’ve begun to do the same thing.

I can’t speak for others about their motives.  All I know is that for me, it just feels right.

I never thought I’d be doing Shamanic Journeying.  Never.  Not once.  No way.  Not me. (In fact, I have a dear friend who’s spent the past 5 years making a film on the injustices to native people by the commercialization of their spiritual practices!)

And now I’m doing it?

Well, yes.  I am.

And the changes that have taken place within me – and within my work as a Healer – are stunning.

So what’s this all about, this thing that seems like an endless search for the “one right modality?”

Here’s the deal: In the end, we are all looking for the same thing.


With a capital L.

“Love that casts a widening pool of light.”

I might find it today through journey work, yesterday through Reiki, and tomorrow through sitting in stillness.  You might find it through Christianity, while the next guy finds it through whirling dervish-ing. That lady over there? Past-life-regression. And this one? Transcendental meditation.

The list is endless.

And that is a good thing.

It’s a testament to the fact that no two people are alike – and no one person remains the same from one moment to the next.

We are forever growing and expanding.  We cannot expect our spiritual practice to remain the same.

But through this web of differences – between people, and within the ever-evolving nature of Self – the one constant is Love.

It doesn’t matter how we connect to it – this Love, this light.

It only matters that we be with it in a way that feels fully right to us.

Deeply, genuinely, peacefully.
