Happy Paint

Posted by Jo Leath on Wednesday, January 10, 2018, In : The Miracle of Physical Life 
Happy Paint 

Abraham Hicks  teaches that we are Spiritual Beings who have elected to come into the physical form and live a human life.
While in this physical world, we are able to explore, to use our bodies in an infinite number of ways: we can climb mountains or smell the roses or sleep until noon.
We are also able to scrutinize our limits and potentials on the mental plane, using our brains and the thoughts they can generate to reach into imagination and fantasy for new ideas and novelty.

Nothing Without Consent

Posted by Jo Leath on Sunday, December 10, 2017, In : Synchronicity 
Nothing Without Consent
When I first began travelling around and offering readings, I thought I would be travelling and giving readings. I learnt a lot.
In those early days I encountered -- and sometimes I still do -- firmly held and mistaken beliefs about the nature of my work.
I have met people who claimed they were afraid of the idea.
"You might read my mind" they would say, and I was never comfortable enough to ask them what it was about their thoughts that created such a concern. 

For th...

The Freedom of Spirit 2/2

Posted by Jo Leath on Monday, November 20, 2017, In : The Miracle of Physical Life 
The Freedom of Spirit (continued)

Each of us is a Spiritual entity having a Human Experience, and that identity is formulated in all four of the planes of life: Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual.
As a child of the last century, I was born into a population which spent a thousand years with a predominant One energy.  Every birth-date included that vibration. 
One carries an understanding of self, the ability to connect with a core identity and ego, it is with One that we can say "This ...

The Freedom of Spirit

The Freedom of Spirit

       When we, immortal and eternal souls, arrive in the physical world, commencing our Human Experience, we get labeled according to obvious physical attributes. 
   
  Yet we are not merely physical beings, and even before we have spoken language, we are able to access the unseen Emotional Plane. We feel when we are safe and when we aren't. We recognize the physical senses like hunger and cold, and can feel fear if nothing happens to feed and warm us. We are capable of f...

The Path which Contains

Posted by Jo Leath on Tuesday, October 10, 2017, In : Numerology 
  The Path which Contains

     For anyone who believes, as I do, in the immortal and eternal nature of the Soul, it is logical to think of a lifetime as a finite event.
       Each of us is living a physical experience which had a beginning and will have an end. All of our activities, relationships, learning and emotional responses will take place inside that enclosed event.
     Each individual human physical life, then, is self contained.

    I have a great many conversations with my clients about the eternal nature of the Human Soul. I have lengthy discussions, too, about the role of challenge in life, and the instinct some people have to avoid situations they perceive as difficult. Very often this topic comes up when we are discussing the Numerology of the Number Seven, and the teaching energy that it can unlock.

         In the village where I am located, the sun will rise at 5:15 Eastern time on Wednesday, June 21, 2017, and remain until a 20:55 sunset, offering 15 hours and 40 minutes of daylight.

Grasping Gratitude

    Learning to maintain an attitude of gratitude is at the centre of many modern teachings, and Seekers are encouraged to be mindful about every day miracles and be grateful.
    Giving thanks as an expression of faith is a familiar idea. Prayers, mantras and chants have been written to be said with meals, for the day we are starting or closing, and for other events which have kindled feelings of gratitude within us.

Cooperative Components

Cooperative Components

    I first heard the phrase Cooperative Components among the teachings of Abraham Hicks.  It is a way of understanding the interconnectedness of all things.
       When we notice a particular event or circumstance we are invited to see how the universe has cooperated to provide that experience in order for us to move towards our intentions.
    One of the simplest ways to locate a 'cooperative' message is by drawing an oracle card. When I was working in Nova Scotia, the...

Breathing in Three Dimensions

    Our breath is a constant companion, quite literally from birth to death. The automatic rhythm is very easy to forget. Breathing happens whether we think about it or not, and in fact when we think about it, we change the pattern.
We can pay attention and adjust our breathing deliberately, and when we do, we can impose (and expect) particular outcomes.
    Understanding how the constant and consistent flow of breath works, and what it does, can help us to be more ...

Those April Powers

To calculate your Personal Year Number for 2015, see below.
    
     To make the most of monthly Number information, consider your dominant Number of the month as a fuel – fuel that permits you to drive more easily in one direction than another.
     For example, there is no ‘wrong time’ to engage in service, and yet when Six is vibrating strongly in our personal field, serving will feel easy and rewarding. At times we will not even notice the advantages we have provid...

Facts about Eight

     This calendar year the Numerological vibration, underlying all monthly and daily changes, is Eight.
     2+0+1+5=8. Regardless of the Numbers in our names and birth-dates, and over and above the Personal Year frequencies that immerse each of us, Eight is ever-present.
     Numerology divides the human experience into four ‘planes: Physical; Mental; Emotional; and Intuitive. The Number Eight is identified on the Mental Plane, alongside the Number One.

     It is not news that I am fascinated and inspired by the Number Cycle and the elegant patterns of Numerology charts. I am also thrilled to have found the book by Daniel H. Pink, A Whole New Mind: Why Right-brainers Will Rule the Future.

     My teacher Alicia Power works with Spirit Mentors and tutors, and she channels Creative Beings who teach that Love is an electromagnetic force-field.

Numerology. What is it?

     In the early 1980s I was living in Kamloops, in the semi-arid desert area of British Columbia. One day I was driving from home into the town, listening to a noon-hour radio phone-in show. The studio guest was a Numerologist. Callers were invited to announce their full dates-of-birth, and almost instantly the Numerologist would deliver a short, pointed sentence about them.

Who Has Seen the Breath?

     January is a time of new beginnings and startings over. Some conversations might feature blank slates, do-overs, and second (or third) chances. New Year may offer the option to put the past away and start anew.
     For me, this is a wonderful time to go back to the very basics of being here in the world now, and I don’t need a New Year for a new beginning: every day triggers a new possible future. Each day starts with breath in our body, connecting us to the mir...

     That sounds rather grand and at the same time rather vague: we can choose behaviours and attitudes and what to do ...

August will Change Your Life

Posted by Jo Leath on Wednesday, July 31, 2013, In : Numerology 
August will Change Your Life

     In this Six year (2+0+1+3=6) August, as the eighth month is vibrating to Five energy: (8+6=14; 1+4=5)
     Five is the midpoint of the cycle of numbers: there are four lower numbers and four higher. Five is the place of change.
     When Five is present, whether in the calendar or in our personal charts, then changes will happen. We cannot control the behaviour of the universe.
     Where we can assert ourselves is in how we respond, whether we try to resist, and...

Books Change Lives -- when we choose

Posted by Jo Leath on Wednesday, July 24, 2013, In : Synchronicity 

Books Change Lives -- when we choose

     When people discuss books that changed their thinking, my friends often hark back to books 20 and 30 and even 40 years ago. Certainly I read some life-changers back then.
     That said, though, there are some awesome books I have found recently that have challenged my way of being in the world, and changed my life.
     A book that changed my framework for living is Daniel Pink's _A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future_. It is much mo...

A grumpy old curmudgeon with the kindest of hearts

A grumpy old curmudgeon with the kindest of hearts
 
    I have been fascinated by archaeology since I was a child, visiting the Roman Fort at Housesteads near my home, and learning about Howard Carter’s discovery of the tomb of King Tutankhamen.
    Archaeology is a wonderful metaphor for a lot of the work that I do: looking below the surface; synthesizing a whole from fragments and parts.
    Perhaps it is this affinity that made me a fan of the television reality program Time Team, where a ...

Synchronicity; Inspiration; Remembering

Synchronicity; Inspiration; Remembering


    Although this website has my name as its domain, it is called Exploring Paths to Cosmic Wisdom. I have a Facebook page by the same name, and I don’t often talk about the nature of the title.

     When I was beginning to emerge from my grief at being widowed, I connected with a Spiritual Centre near my home. I was interested in promoting my long-standing numerology practice to their clients.

     The owner and I had some discussions, and I atte...

Time Bends

Posted by Jo Leath on Wednesday, April 24, 2013, In : Energy Fields 
Time Bends.

     April 23rd is an important date in my life. In 2007 it was a day that changed my life.
     On that day my partner of 17 years made the transition from this life to the next one, and I was faced with an unexpected and unclear future.
     I remember that day, that week, in fact several weeks leading up to that day in minute detail. Some of the memories feel only a week old they are so bright and present in my mind.
     At the same time the intervening six years have brought me ...

What’s My Motivation?

Posted by Jo Leath on Wednesday, March 27, 2013, In : The Miracle of Physical Life 
What’s My Motivation?

     I am currently involved backstage of a community theatre project. Watching the cast rehearse has reminded me of something Dr. Wayne Dyer said at the Wishes Fulfilled event I attended in Boston.
     We have each inhabited many bodies since we arrived in a seven or eight pound version of ourselves. We have grown and changed. We have inhabited a toddler body and a child body. We had a teen body and multiple others en route to the body we use today.
      The actors I a...

Six Natural Senses

Posted by Jo Leath on Wednesday, March 13, 2013, In : The Miracle of Physical Life 
  Six Natural Senses

   The Six Senses for the Conceptual Age are within us. They are ways of being and ways of seeing. Most of all, they are ways of knowing that are completely natural to us.
     How is it, then, that this is new?
     Why is this not how I have lived my life until now?
     I was educated in the Age of Information.
     I was educated for the Age of Information.
     There was no reward for innate knowing: my schooling did not develop natural human wisdoms. I was expected to ...

Personal Years Seven, Eight and Nine

Personal Years Seven, Eight and Nine

     My January blog posts are still accessible if you scroll down this page. I spent the month exploring how to make the most of the Cosmic Frequencies that moved in to our realm with the New Year.

     Understanding the Six vibration of the year (2+0+1+3=6) is an important part of finding your personal alignment with the vibrations of the Universe. It is not the single magic key for everyone.

     When each of us arrived in human life, we brought with...

Gratitude and Moving Forward

I am writing this on Day 16 of the Deepak Chopra 21 day Meditation Challenge.

Many of the people in my life, both on-line and off, are participating in this event.

The structure of this meditative challenge is thoroughly aligned with the calendar: I am feeling the benefit already.

The Seven Energy which is vibrating during November is aligned with meditation and Spiritual connexion....

2012 My Year in Numbers

Posted by Joy Leath on Wednesday, October 31, 2012, In : Numerology 
     2012 has Five vibration. I have written and talked about that a lot this year.
2+0+1+2=5, and Five is the Number of growth and change and adaptation. Five carries transformation

     There is talk of The Shift. There are discussions of the end of the Mayan Calendar.

     I am fortunate that in my world, people are very consciously finding ways to move society into a new plane that honours more fully the multi-dimensional nature of the universe.

     I think everyone I know has changed this y...
