Do We Have to Eat Healthy to Be Spiritual?

Dear Meli, I am a really healthy eater. I do it because it makes me feel better, but also because I feel like it helps me spiritually. My best friend, however, doesn’t eat healthy at all. And, I have to admit, she’s also one of the most loving and spiritually connected people I know. When […]

The 3 Problems with Being Guided by Spirit

It sounds so romantic. I’m letting Spirit guide my life. I’m being held and sustained by a Power that’s greater than me. I never worry about anything, ever, because I know the Divine is always in charge. But, like any great romance, there’s a downside. No, it doesn’t involve discovering that the Divine chews with […]

The Most Important Element of Spiritual Practice

I’ve been doing this spiritual thang for over thirty years. In that time, I’ve learned a lot. I’ve also learned that I know nothing.

How Do You Handle a Road Raging Spouse?

Dear Meli, I’m a great driver. I’ve been driving thirty years and I’ve never even had a speeding ticket. My husband – that’s another story. He likes to drive fast. He also tends to get angry at other drivers who don’t go as fast as he does. Luckily, I have my own car and don’t […]

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 – […]

Are You Depressed or Detached?

Dear Meli, For a long time, I was totally enamored with spiritual life. Amazing things would happen in my life and I would be totally blown away. But now, I’m a lot more blasé about it all. Don’t get me wrong, my life is still great. But somehow, I don’t care. Things don’t impact me […]
