What’s Missing in Most Manifestation Regimes

For those of us who are into manifestation – and even those that aren’t – there are a few common elements we’ve all come to expect. The vision board. Affirmations. Visualization. But there’s one element to manifestation that often gets left out. This neglected element is crucial to the manifestation process. Indeed, the omission of […]

Do You Have to Meditate to Be Spiritual?

Dear Meli, This may be a silly question, but do you really need to meditate if you’re on a spiritual path? I ask because I really hate to meditate. I have a really hard time sitting still and quieting my mind. I’m a runner and that seems to be my preferred form of meditation. But […]

How Can I Be Myself Around Others?

Dear Meli, This might seem like a strange question, but I have a hard time being myself. I’m a total chameleon, and I tend to act like whoever I’m with. This makes me really easy to get along with, but sometimes I don’t know who I really am. I also tend to not stand up […]

How Do You Handle a Complaining Friend?

Dear Meli, I have a friend. She’s one of my oldest and dearest friends. We went to grade school together. She’s always had my back, and in many ways she’s one of my biggest supporters. But – and this is a big but – she’s a big complainer. Like, half of what she says is […]

Do I Have to Be Spiritual Because My Partner Is?

Dear Meli, I’m not spiritual. Really, I’m not kidding. My partner of ten years, on the other hand, is super spiritual. When we got together, we were both atheists, but since then she’s totally gone on a spiritual kick. First it was yoga. Then meditation. And now she’s going to a spiritual center. And – […]

Thoughts and Feelings and Fears, Oh My! (Video)

Are you a good meditator? Or a bad meditator? That was a trick question! There’s no such thing as a bad meditator. Everybody thinks. A lot. And meditation is the process of watching our thoughts. So meditation, by definition, tends to involve lots of thinking. Because when we’re meditating, we start to notice how many […]
