DIMMING YOUR LIGHT & NEGLECTING YOUR COMMUNITY

When we dim our lights, we sell ourselves short and lose an opportunity to shed light where it is needed. The ability to go into any social situation and sense the level of consciousness in that situation is a gift. It enables us to move considerately in a world that holds people of all levels…

THE TORTOISE & THE HARE (AT YOUR OWN PACE IN THE COMMUNITY)

Like the tortoise and the hare, we all arrive at the same destination, together, eventually. The classic tale of the tortoise and the hare reminds us that different people take life at different speeds and that one way is not necessarily superior to another. In fact, in the story it is the slower animal that…

UNDERSTANDING OUR COMMUNITY ONENESS

Every thought we have and action we take becomes part of the collective energy of communities. Sometimes we look at the actions of others and find it difficult to understand what motivates them. But we are all doing the best we can with the information we currently have. We have all been taught how to…

FINDING OUR LIFE’S WORK (FEELING OUR COMMUNITIES)

Your most important work in this lifetime may not be your job – it’s a conviction within your soul, recognizable if you allow it to shine. Sometimes it takes us the better part of a lifetime to discover our life’s work, even though we may have been doing it our whole lives without necessarily realizing…

OUR INSECURITIES (LET OUR COMMUNITIES SHINE)

We all have glorious imperfections making us utterly human. At many points in our lives there will come times when we feel insecure about ourselves & communities. We might judge our ability to do something or feel self-conscious about the way we some make us look. It does not matter how this feeling manifests in…

IMPORTANCE OF LOOKING DEEPER (UNDER THE HOOD OF PRIDE)

After Pride Month ends, many of us start to feel bored or blue and this is often a sign of needing to dig deep and take time for some much needed introspection. We all know that it is so easy to get caught up in fun and festivities instead of really deeply examining what we…

DOING OUR BEST (BEYOND PRIDE MONTH)

Our best is always good enough, because it comes from us and we are always good enough. We often come into contact with the idea that all the positive work we did during isn’t good enough the moment July 1st reaches. If we examine this notion, we will begin to see that it doesn’t make…

RAISE YOUR PRIDE VIBRATION (FOCUS ON THE GOOD)

There are many ways to raise our vibrations, including thinking positive and uplifting thoughts. Everything in our communities is made of energy. What differentiates one community from another is the way it vibrates. Our communities vibrate at different frequencies, it’s thoughts and feelings can determine the frequency at which we vibrate, and our vibration goes…

ANYTHING CAN BE OVERCOME…PRIDE IN HARDSHIP

Even when it seems like you have nowhere left to turn, there is a solution waiting for you. Always. The journey that each queer individual makes through earthly existence can have hardship as often as it is touched by joy. When we encounter adversity, the stress we feel can erode our optimism, eventually convincing us…

FOR THE COMMUNITY YOU ARE ENOUGH…

Just being here, being ourselves, is enough for our communities. Most of us have the feeling that we are here to accomplish something big in our communities, and if we haven’t done something that fits the bill we may feel as if we are waiting. We may feel incomplete, or empty, as if our lives…
