The Secret Diary of an Aspiring Meditation Master – June 2014 – Week Four, “Secrets of Abundance.”

We are back again, following Kevin Schoeninger’s messages on Spiritual Growth Monthly. This week, Kevin continues on the issue of Life’s Big Questions, and considers the question “how can I be more abundant”. What struck me immediately about this question was that it is about being abundant, rather than having or gaining abundance. In our […]

The Secret Diary of an Aspiring Meditation Master – December 2014, Week Four, “Meditation: Welcoming the Light”

Well, we have made it to the end of 2014, and Kevin Schoeninger has given us a final meditation on Spiritual Growth Monthly, which we can save and use again and again as we begin another year. I downloaded the audio file a few days ago, not only because it is worth repeating, but partly […]

The Secret Diary of an Aspiring Meditation Master – December 2014, Week Three, “The Secret to Tranquility and Trust”

While I always enjoy Kevin Schoeninger’s articles on Spiritual Growth Monthly, this week his message seemed to be exactly what I needed, at a moment when my mental, physical and spiritual batteries all seemed tapped out. As if all we have to do during the holidays wasn’t enough, I had taken on some extra projects, and […]

The Secret Diary of an Aspiring Meditation Master – December 2014, Week Two, “Four Ways to Stop Mental Chatter & Be Supremely Happy!”

This week on Spiritual Growth Monthly, Kevin Schoeninger continues his series on happiness. We can feel happy because of happy events, when we feel the love of our family and friends, when we hug our pets, or in any quick moment when we see something beautiful that brings us joy. All of these causes for […]

The Secret Diary of an Aspiring Meditation Master – December 2014, Week One, “Two Secrets to Happiness.”

Welcome to a new month and new topic from Kevin Schoeninger on Spiritual Growth Monthly. This month Kevin begins an exploration of the Pursuit of Happiness, a very appropriate theme for the holiday season, since we are all supposed to be especially happy this time of year, and we may feel more than a little guilty […]

The Secret Diary of an Aspiring Meditation Master – November 2014, Week Five, “SGM Special Report: Multiply Your Manifesting Power”

With five Sundays falling in November, Kevin Schoeninger has brought his Spiritual Growth Monthly readers two bonuses for the month; a radio interview, and a special downloadable report that ties the themes of “physical intelligence” with how we can include it for “10 Simple Tweaks” to reduce stress and improve how we feel in our […]

The Secret Diary of an Aspiring Meditation Master – November 2014, Week Four, “How to Get Out of Your Box, and Solve Any Challenge.”

This month on Spiritual Growth Monthly, Kevin Schoeninger has been exploring the fascinating book, “Sensation: The New Science of Physical Intelligence” (Atria, 2014), by Thalma Lobel, Ph.D., and he wraps it up this week by focusing on boxes, movement in open space, and light bulbs. When you think of boxes and light bulbs, do you […]

The Secret Diary of an Aspiring Meditation Master – November 2014, Week Three: How Height, Cleaning, and Fragrance Can Lift Your Mood and Empower Your Life

Do you store your clean bed linens with lavender or feel a little revved up from the scent of grapefruit juice in the morning? Have you ever noticed how ancient Egyptian paintings always show pharaohs as far taller and larger than the images around them? Well, it seems there is more here than just homey […]

The Secret Diary of an Aspiring Meditation Master – November 2014, Week Two: “How Light and Color Change Feelings, Judgments and Behavior”

Let’s look inside your closet. Do you have that little black dress that almost all women since Coco Chanel have been told was an essential ingredient for every wardrobe? Or maybe the red “power dress” or suit? A few decades ago women were told to wear red to appear as assertive as their male competition. […]

The Secret Diary of an Aspiring Meditation Master – November 2014, Week One: “What You Don’t Know Controls You”

No one likes to be under someone else’s control, right? That’s part of the growing up process. We just can’t wait to leave mom and dad and take charge of our own lives, to think and do what we want. Of course, grown up life is full of other controllers. Bosses, tax collectors, department of […]
