The Mystic's Message

(un)Common Wisdom to Quiet the Mind and Soothe the Spirit

The Mystics Message is (un)Common wisdom to quiet the mind and soothe the spirit. I know how noisy it can be living in this world- the inside and outside voices all mingling. It’s hard sometimes to hear that quiet voice of your Soul.

The Mystics Message is that voice. Speaking quietly in your ear, yet somehow cutting through all the chatter. The other voices will blur into the background for just a moment, and you'll hear exactly what you need.

Maybe it’s an idea. Maybe it’s only one word, or a new perspective on an ancient truth. Whatever it is, it’s yours. Take it. Nurture it as your own. 

Look for the treasures. Even I don't know where all of them are because they weren't put there by me. I only write it, and I’ll be honest, I don’t know where this thing is going. I only know that it’s important.

Every post is written in the spirit of love, charity, brotherhood, and a deep longing to share the things we hold most dear.

That spirit guides me as I write to you every week. That spirit is the essence of The Mystics Message, whatever form it may take. 

So take a deep breath. Put your hand on your heart. You’re exactly where you need to be.

Welcome, my friend!

Emotions can be sticky. Especially when they take a dark turn...

Resentment, anger, frustration- they have a way of winding us deep into a story with no way out.

It's a simple method. Only a few steps...

There's a catch though. You'll need to set…

How to Know if You're Growing as a Person

When it comes to personal development, I play the long game. 

Flashes of insight and “Breakthroughs” are great, but they don’t always mean that something significant has shifted, and they’re definitely no guarantee of lasting change. 

You feel better for a little bit and then it's back to business as usual. 

I don't know anyone who is committed to their own growth who hasn't asked in a moment of self-disappointment and frustration, "Is this even working?" 

Trying to change a habit and see yo…
