Luminous Beings Are We (Meaning of Yoda’s Speech)

Follow usOne of my favorite Star Wars quotes is Yoda’s “Luminous beings are we” speech. The meaning of this Yoda quote is actually a lot deeper than many people realize. In The Empire Strikes Back, Luke is talking to Yoda on Degobah. Luke has just failed to lift his X-Wing out of the swamp by using the Force, and Yoda explains that size does not matter.  “Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.” So, what is the meaning of Yoda’s “Luminous ...

Friday the 13th & Honoring The Divine Feminine

Many consider Friday the 13th to be an unlucky date, perhaps without really even knowing why. Viewed through another lens, Friday the 13th can be seen as a sacred date of honoring the Divine Feminine rising on Earth and within us all. I sense and feel there is a powerful opportunity available here and now, to reclaim Friday the 13th as time to honor the Divine Feminine – Divine Mother God. A time to experience Aliveness, Oneness, Unity, Love with the One Stream that is Divine Mother God Consciousness Shakti and Light. Why Friday the 13th? There are very strong correlations between Friday the 13th and the Divine Feminine. Throughout the course of the year there are 13 Moon cycles and a female on average experiences 13 periods each year. The moon itself represents feminine energy and is conn...

Surprising Ways Meditation Can Transform Your Work Team 

Follow usBuddha said, “Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.” If you’re the leader of a team, I’m sure you know the true value of teamwork. As a leader, your job is to keep your team members on the same page – sometimes with energy, sometimes with fun team-building actions. Surprisingly, there is still not much content and training material to teach managers how to get their employees to work in a team. Personal bonds created between team members really give your company a competitive advantage. Culture is one of the key factors associated with employee happiness. As a result, it is in your best interest to know how to bridge the gap between the team, other departments, and the entire organization via meditation. How does team building work? Everything is...

As we have seen even more keenly through the pandemic, our societies work well for some and poorly for many, and we find ourselves poised at a moment in history ...

3 Easy Meditations for The First Day of Winter — Amanda Linette Meder

Winter Solstice TraditionsThe winter solstice, the shortest day of the year, is approaching and it means the North Pole is farthest from the sun.

Set cosy intentions and manifest merrily with our November issue, on sale now

Your future starts with one intention… The day we began work on this issue, 1st September, was the sixth anniversary of Dr Wayne Dyer’s passing – in fact, it was the fourth anniversary of Louise Hay’s transition out of this life too. I wonder what Wayne would have made of this issue, which plays with the idea of intention, manifesting and co-creating, all while we’re tucked up and enjoying the cosy change of seasons. Autumn really is my favourite time of year, with the blue skies and red leaves, but still, life can feel overwhelming for us all, especially after the last year or two. My mantra for myself and my wonderful team on the mag: one thing at a time, one day at a time, one intention at a time. In our glorious guest edit this issue, Californian Reiki godd...
