Pendulum: Yes or No?

By Sabrina Matheny • Rumble Contributor | A pendulum is a weight attached to a string that can be used in a spiritual practice for answering yes/no questions. I like to use gemstone pendulums because I enjoy having the property of the stone factor into my practice. 

The North Wind is Calling

By Sabrina Matheny • | I remember standing outside in my yard of my dream home, a house I thought I would never sell, feeling my spirit disconnect from the property. It was such a weird feeling, and so unexpected that I dismissed the thought. I gave it one of my usual “that was weird” moments and carried on with my evening. Two years later I listed that house and sold it a year after that. 

Black Sheep

By Sabrina Matheny • Rumble Contributor | We are all familiar with the expression “so and so is the black sheep of the family.” According to Merriam-webster’s definition; it is a disfavored or disreputable member of a group. We all have someone we can point to that upsets the applecart of our family. These people can’t seem to do life the way we do it, think like we do, or even relate to one another the way that we do. It’s almost as if they are from another world sent here to challenge the very core our belief systems, and honey, I got a news flash for ya…they are! 

Frenemies

I carry a little anxiety. When I say a little, what I really mean is that I carry a lot of anxiety. I can truthfully say, I’ve never felt the full force of it in my body before well… now. 

My Afternoon With Samson

By Sabrina Matheny • Rumble Contributor | I was recently in a store to get help with a cabinet door hinge. I couldn’t remove a stripped screw.

The Ripple Effect: Words have power, and so do thoughts

Have you ever imagined a different life for yourself? Do you spend a little time fantasizing? Do you ruminate on past experiences until the pain is once again real? Where do these thoughts go when you’ve wallowed long enough? Most of them (or a version of them) travel into the astral plain where they wait for other thoughts to join them and gain enough strength to make their way into your reality. Huh?  

Finding Light in Adversity

“Partner with adversity. The light of our highest potential is hunting us down to liberate us from our hiding spot.”-Matt Kahn

Law of Attraction

By Sabrina Matheny • Rumble Contributor | As human beings we exist in this third dimensional reality, running our experiences through our five senses and our perceptions. Our way of thinking is conditioned by our past experiences. When we use only the evidence of what we are currently living as our guide, we start to believe that this life that we’ve created is all that’s available for us and that life can be hard. What if I told you that more exists, and we can align with more if we are willing to be open to a new possibility? Would you want that? Ladies and gents, step into the world of co creating with the universe. Without further ado….

The Crush and Covert Agreements

By Sabrina Matheny • Rumble Contributor | I believe that when we have an interaction with another person there is a little bit for you and a little bit for me in terms of an opportunity for growth. However, the exchange is often not equitable with regards to where we each are on our individual soul journey.

Co-Creating With the Universe

How to Design Your Life: I grew up in a small town with three sisters. Wanting to indulge our possible talents and interests, my parents invested in a baby grand piano and piano lessons. Our teacher, Anne Scoggins, not only provided excellent instruction in her music studio, but she also insisted we go before adjudicators at Meredith College to get written critiques and a certificate of our progress each year. Not being terribly dedicated to honing our craft, these annual performance reviews became quite stressful.
