before you bust a move, pick up your psychic telephone

or: how to use your psychic powers on mice and men

I was working for an organization in New Mexico. Our office was an old compound of adobe buildings, off a bumpy side road, by a field. One summer, we were overrun with mice.

We couldn’t do traps. Cruel. Messy. Yuck. The humane traps (Mister Mouse crawls into a plastic house and a door shuts. He waits to be picked up. You then drive Mister Mouse forty nine miles away and set him free.) Not very practical when you’re dealing with an extended family reunion of mice.

So we did what any self-respecting cosmic team would do with a vermin problem: we meditated. Our plan: one fifteen minute meditation as a group at the end of a staff meeting, and anyone who wanted to keep sending out their own thought waves throughout the day, then, yeah! The meditation: “Dear Mice. We love and respect you. And, this is our space. Please leave within the next two weeks. If you choose not to leave within two weeks, we’ll set traps and kill you. Bless.”

I guess mice can tell time, because in two weeks, nary a mouse turd could be found. They va-moused out of our space.

The moral of the story, in three points:

USE YOUR PSYCHIC TELEPHONE. IT’S FREE!

1. Speak with your mind, grasshopper. Engage your inner resources first. Meditate before you activate. We exert so much physical energy and time trying to make things go our way. Memos, conversations, to-do lists and PLANS–all those damn plans. Try using a different channel to get your point across.

Another case in point: I needed to fire a staff member. It’s something everyone would prefer to avoid. So I sent her this psychic text, “This isn’t the right place for you. Find another job, or I’ll fire you in two weeks.” She quit, head held high. I didn’t need to say a word. Mind-email? We’ll never know, but it’s a lot more efficient than handing someone a box of tissue and their last cheque on a Friday.

2. Have a very clear intention. You can’t be all like, sorta kinda, maybe, possibly wishy washy. State your position and send a clear signal.

3. Intend for the highest and best outcome for all, and deeply accept that it is ultimately out of your hands. Speaking psychically to people (and animals) isn’t about manipulating them. That kind of mind screwing will give you much-deserved karmic migraines. The more win-win your wordless intentions are, the more you increase your chances of being heard.

Does this work for wooing men? “Call me by Friday or I’m dating Buddy.” Maybe. Does it work for getting your building superintendent to clean up the lobby? “Mr. Rogers, the foyer needs love so we’ll all feel better. PS, You’re awesome.” It might. Does it work for sending love, and light, and new possibilities in a potentially all-powerful instant? If you believe it, it does.

If you’d like to make a call…
please dial in to your solar plexus.
Speak clearly, kindly, truly.
Operators are standing by.

[LIGHT WORK] An intimate Q&A episode. It’s deep, it’s lite, I hope it’s alllll right.

If God is in the details, then the Soul is in a good Q&A. And that’s the substance of Podcast #4: Beliefs, Movies & Man Crushes. Your questions make it so easy for me to rant and offer some (hopefully) useful how-to’s and tricks of the trade. The “trade” being discernment and devotion. It’s deep, it’s lite, I hope it’s alllll right.

[LIGHT WORK] Beliefs, Movies & Man Crushes

In a nutshell: I’m hot for hot man feminists who work (in their own way) to make the world a better place. Service is a huge turn on for me.

[LIGHT WORK] The service of joy, especially in these times

I’ve talked to rabbis, and priests, and monks, and people who I consider to be high esoteric practitioners. I’ve figured out a few things about joy… and I’ve woven them into this week’s episode of LIGHT WORK.

[LIGHT WORK] We can’t get to the light, until we understand the suffering.

I’ve struggled for a long time with wondering if pain and suffering were essential to growth. Are they essential to me being a more expanded, clear minded, loving, joyous, sexy human being? Do I have to hurt to get there? Well, I fucking hope not… but I haven’t figured out a way around suffering yet.

[LIGHT WORK] The upside of suffering… sort of.

You see, there is suffering in the sensitivity. It hurts to feel. And we’re raised to strive—to desensitize—and it’s killing us. I think the strength is in opening. That opening to feel is where resiliency is born.

[LIGHT WORK, Ep. #1] Friends, Lovers, and Therapy5

[LIGHT WORK] The union. The bliss. The bind…Friendship is EVERYthing.

I want to go deep into this conversation about creating Fulfilling Friendships. I’ve got lots to say about engaged listening, self respect, breaking up (when necessary), and celebrating our friend-loves. I’ve also got plenty of opinions and practices for self-compassion, deep spiritual devotion, healthier relationships with our damn phones, and better quality sleep.

[LIGHT WORK] Friends, Lovers, and Therapy

I asked about a zillion people what they wanted more of in their lives. The #1 craving, by far: more fulfilling FRIENDSHIPS. We’re connection starved, we know this. Let me give you a peek into my own circle. In this first episode of LIGHT WORK, I use my own friends as how-to examples for creating radical support and sweetness in your life.

Do not doubt the wisdom of your rage

Do not doubt the wisdom of your rage. (inspired by recent events)

Popularity isn’t always true power. Money isn’t always success. Experience does not guarantee wisdom. Question it all. And do not doubt the wisdom of your rage.

GOOD MANNERS and some wuv. We could all use more of them-feature

GOOD MANNERS and some wuv. We could all use more of them.

There are still some basic good manners that should prevail no matter our generation, station, or affiliation. Here’s what it might mean to be classy, kind, and considerate whenever you are able (and we are almost always able).

I made something new for you. For US.

The LIGHT WORK series will unfold over six episodes. These are girlfriend-style sermons on serving the world while staying sane, cosmic connectedness over tech addiction, self compassion and more fulfilling friendships. Poetry. Hilarity. Peeks into the personal.
