School Days

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, October 5, 2010, In : thoughts 
I am learning,
every day I go to school.
Sometimes I pass the test
with flying colors,
sometimes I fail miserably.
But I go, I know that
life will give me the lessons
I need to grow.
Even though I want to
play hooky every once in a while,
school is necessary.
The grades don’t matter,
it’s what I learn and understand.
I move through the grades,
lower levels to higher levels,
kindergarten to Ph.D level.
Wow, there is so much I know
but yet so much to learn.
I meet classmates, I learn how

Why Is There Karma Anyway?

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Friday, May 21, 2010, In : Articles 
Karma – it has fun teaching us our lessons. We go through a situation, discover characteristics about ourselves and others, and then our soul changes. It seems like a great concept. However, have you ever wondered why Karma even exists? Why do we need to go through these lessons? Couldn’t Spirit have us just walk around in bliss and happiness all the time?

Let’s review the concept of a collective soul. We all broke off from “The One” or the “Collective Spirit”. Eac...

Collective Karma - Can We Make An Individual Impact?

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Saturday, March 20, 2010, In : Articles 
One of my favorite spiritual thoughts is that we are all part of the “collective” or “the one”.  The theory is that there is one collective soul and all of us split off from that soul, incarnate into a body and have made it to earth.  Therefore, whatever I do affects you, whatever you do affects me.   It’s an interesting concept to me, especially when there are days that I interact with people that seem completely different than me.  Are we really from the same universal soul...

Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Saturday, January 23, 2010, In : Articles 

We're not good with change as humans.  We like things to be stable and when the unknown gets thrown into the mix, we struggle to find the solid ground again. 

This is understandable.  We work so hard to get what we have, we want to keep our families in the lifestyle they are used to and we have our routine down pat.   So when things start shifting, we worry that life is never going to be stable again.  We focus so much on the uncertainty, we forget this is a part of life.  Life is always goi...

If You Stay Here

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Thursday, December 3, 2009, In : Spiritual 

If you stay here

you will not learn

because knowledge comes

from learning the lessons

 

If you stay here

you will not grow

because maturity comes

from pushing your limits


If you stay here

you will not change

because shifting comes

from beautiful movement


If you stay here

you will not realize

because awareness comes

from opening your eyes

 

If you stay here

you will not shine

because light comes

from the universal flame

 

If you stay here

you will not breathe

because air comes

from the refre...

Regrets, I Have A Few

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, September 22, 2009, In : Articles 

I taught a Past Life Regression class last week.  It's amazing the breakthroughs people have - what they see, people they meet again, places they've been in another lifetime.  I usually check in with the attendees at the end of the class to make sure they are okay.


This time, one of the attendees said to me, "I saw a tough life but I knew I needed to see it to grow in this one."
 
Many people I work with see things in past lives that are outdated or outlawed in the life we know now.  The wo...

The Journey

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Monday, September 21, 2009, In : Spiritual 

The journey is never a straight path.

It moves in twists and turns,

rough terrains, bumps, potholes,

crossroads, detours and stop signs.

 

The journey is never a short trip.

Do you have it all?  Did you pack everything?

Make sure you have your umbrella.

You may need it for rainy days.

 

The journey is never without help.

You'll meet people along the way -

they may travel a short distance

or take the whole trip with you.

 

The journey is never without hope.

No matter what storm...

School Days

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Wednesday, September 16, 2009, In : Articles 

My four year old niece just started school.  She so far hasn't finished her lunch twice because she's been too busy chatting to a couple of playmates.  To everyone's relief, she likes it.

 

I started thinking about my own school experience and realized that my 20 year High School reunion is next year.  It seems like so long ago that I went through my formal education - back to school shopping, buying books at my college bookstore.  Fall officially started for me the first day back in school...
