In last week's blog post, I shared Albert Einstein's quote that "Everything in Life is vibration." Here's another brilliant insight by Einstein:
"We cannot solve our problems by the same thinking we used when we created them."
One of the comments I hear often from clients is: "I don't know what to do." If you've ever found yourself saying this, I'd like to offer a process you can use to help you get greater clarity, and I'll use Einstein's quote as the starting point.
If everything in Life is vibration, that means that your words and your thoughts also have a vibrational frequency. When you hear someone gossiping and speaking negatively about another person, their words and thoughts reflect a lower frequency. When you listen to the love poetry of Rumi or hear the lyrics of Pharrell's song "Happy," the frequency is much higher. You can tell the difference because the higher the frequency, the more joyous, expansive and free you feel.
Now, if you're experiencing a problem in your life, the problem is operating at a lower frequency because you're probably feeling angst and life-draining energy from it. If you've been trying to resolve your problem and getting nowhere, what's a person to do? Here's the answer:
If you're stuck on finding the answer to your problem, you have to raise the vibrational frequency of your question.
Do you feel the difference in vibrational frequencies?
The trick here is to keep on honing in and crafting the question so that it reflects a higher vibrational feeling in you. Sometimes it takes me 5 times until I come up with the right question.
Then once you have the high vibrational question, the next step is to brainstorm 20 possible answers to your question. There's no editing in this process. Just write down whatever comes to mind. And keep on doing it until you come up with at least 20 answers.
After you have your 20 answers, then circle the 3-5 answers that resonate with you and call for you to take inspired action. And here's the kicker: Start taking action on one of those items immediately!
I want to give a big shout out to Mary Morrissey for introducing me to this process. And a big thanks to Einstein for his inspiration behind this exercise by encouraging a new level of thinking to solving problems.
So here's your coaching assignment for the week:
This is a great process to do every time you feel stuck or don't know what to do. The higher the vibration of your question, the more in alignment and congruent you are with Source itself. That's why Mary Morrissey calls the process of answering the question "Sourcing Ideas." The ideas that flow from a higher frequency are ideas from Source itself.
For those of you who like to get extra stars and do some additional homework, ask yourself these high frequency questions: What can I do to live a freer, fuller and more expansive life? And how can I create a world where everyone can live freer, fuller and more expansive lives?
The secret to this extra homework is that this is your life's assignment. Imagine a life and a world where you and everyone else experience more joy, more love and more freedom. This life and world is possible. Namaste.

Albert Einstein once said, "Everything in Life is vibration."
If you were to shrink yourself down to an atomic level size (I know this isn't possible now, but play with me), you would notice that atoms are in a constant state of motion. Even things that seem to be very solid, like a chair, table or a rock, at this atomic level, are not as solid as they might seem. The atoms are moving, and are vibrating at specific frequencies.
Things that appear to be solid vibrate at lower frequencies, and the less solid things appear to be, the higher their frequencies. I like to use the example of water to illustrate this point. Water as steam has a higher frequency than liquid water, which has a higher frequency than ice. If you look at the atoms in each of these states of water, steam vibrates more quickly than liquid water and ice.
So what does this have to do with spirituality?
If everything in life is vibration, then you yourself are a vibrational frequency. Spirituality is a practice and movement to be more conscious and deliberate about the vibrational frequency that is you.
You've probably sensed vibrational frequencies before. Have you encountered people who've said they're feeling "heavy" with emotion? That heavy feeling is an indication of a lower vibrational frequency. On the other hand, you might have come across someone who's feeling joyous and "high as a kite." That high feeling reflects a higher vibrational frequency.
Many people are unconscious about the vibrational frequencies in their lives. Let's go ahead and start to move from the unconscious to the conscious. If you look at a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 represents a very low vibration and 10 represents a very high vibration, ask yourself these questions:
These questions are the beginning stages in understanding the spiritual law of vibration. The lessons first start with awareness.
If you're not clear on how to rate your vibration, a factor you can use is the level of joy you are feeling and experiencing. The more that you are feeling fuller, freer and more joyful, the higher your vibration is.
Here are the implications to understanding the spiritual law of vibration:
There are so many ways to use the spiritual law of vibration to create the kind of life and world you envision. I'll be talking more about some of these ways in future blog posts.
For now, here's your coaching assignment for the week: Let's play a game with your awareness of vibrational frequencies. Using the 1 to 10 scale above, silently rate yourself, the people and the environments you find yourself in this week. If you go to the grocery store, you might say, "This place feels like a 6." Or if you run into a bubbly person on the street, you might say, "She's definitely vibrating at a 9 or 10." Remember to rate yourself too. It's good to see the ranges you might be vibrating, and what affects your frequency. This week is all about awareness.

This past week, I had the opportunity to be interviewed on KPFK radio in Los Angeles on the topic of Spirituality and the LGBT community. Many thanks to Rita Gonzales and Ralph Radebuagh for hosting me on their show "The Out Agenda."
The interview came at an opportune time as Indiana had just passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. The backlash was swift as the LGBT community and allies, both individuals and corporations, took a stand against a law that would justify discrimination against people in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. To the gall of many, one pizzeria in Indiana proved this when the owner stated on television that she would not cater pizza to a gay wedding. (Okay, now what gay couple would want to serve pizza at their wedding???)
Because of the widespread uproar, Indiana (and Arkansas, which was following in Indiana's footsteps) re-worked their bills to ensure no discrimination would be allowed against LGBT individuals. But the fact that this bill passed, and that the pizzeria owner blatantly stated her own intent to discriminate based on her faith, feeds the feeling that there's a divide between being LGBT and being a person of faith. What about those of us that identify as both?
During the interview, I shared a deeply troubling story about a gay man in his 70s who stayed in the closet and isolated himself in his apartment, all because his mother told him that he had "the Devil" inside him when he came out to her at a young age. For over 50 years, he carried this deep shame. I visited his apartment many times to offer him spiritual counseling and support because he didn't want to be out in the world, for fear that people would find out his secret that he was gay. He shared with me that in his heart, he believed that God loved him just as he was, but his family and the world that he knew told him otherwise.
He had a seedling of belief that he was loved, but the soil around him was full of weeds, "hardened" stones and toxicity that prevented the "love seedling" from blossoming.
I'll be honest with you. This makes me angry.
I am outraged that this gay man felt that he had to live a life of isolation. I am outraged that many LGBT youth become homeless because of families that disown them. I am outraged at the ways our LGBT community is hurting, and the fact that suicide attempts among LGBT youth is higher than the general population. This is why I believe spirituality in the LGBT community matters.
The heart of spirituality is the practice to remember these things: You are loved. You are worthy. You matter. You are a gift, and the Universe would not be the same without you. Let go of anything that tells you otherwise.
Sometimes this is easier said than done. That's why it's important to find the people and communities that support you in remembering these truths. If you're in the Los Angeles area, come by the Tuesday night support group that I lead at Inspire LA so that you can be in spiritual community. If you can't find a local community or person who can support you, contact me and we can talk about how you can find that. The important thing to do is to reach out. No one should have to isolate themselves.
For those of you who are interested in listening to my radio interview where I talk about spirituality and the LGBT community, I'm providing the link for you. You can also download an mp3 copy to listen on the go:
This is my gift to you. I encourage you to listen to it, and to share it with others.
For your coaching assignment this week, think about an area of your own life where you could use some tender loving care to remember that you are loved, you are worthy and that you matter. Then, go ahead and give yourself that care. For bonus points, let others know that they are loved, they are worthy, and that they matter. You never know when someone might need that loving boost.
May you be surrounded with people and situations that lovingly remind you of the love and light that you already are.
