Science and Spirituality Unite – The Miracle That is You

Is there really a place where science and spirituality unite? I believe they are intertwined and trying to understand either alone just leaves a lot of gaps and confusion.

We are living in a magnificent new age of compassion, forgiveness and spiritual awareness. The Human race is more connected than ever before in history. It is an exciting time to be alive and experience this shift in consciousness.

The technological advancement that allows us to carry a super computer, on our person, wherever we go is simply amazing. At any given moment, we have the ability to connect with anyone, anywhere on this planet. The wealth of knowledge and wisdom available to us with the touch of a button is staggering.

Yet, somehow, all of this advancement may have actually dumbed us down. Many of us live a life of disconnect. We spend less time in nature, under the stars, absorbing the energy of the heavens and the earth. We have become blinded to what is actually available to us.

If we spent more time looking within, we might better see how science and spirituality unite.

We spend endless hours in front of a television screen filling our heads with the fictional lives of others rather than living our own. We may not even be watching the program, but the TV has to be playing in the background anyway.

Choosing to sit quietly with our own thoughts for any length of time simply doesn’t happen anymore. In fact, it seems we go to great lengths to keep our minds otherwise occupied at all times.

I have often wondered how the great scientists of our past knew so much without the technology we have access to today. I believe it is because they were much more in tune to the Universe and themselves. They valued and instinctively listened to their inner voice, their inner wisdom.

Albert Einstein, possibly the most famous scientist to date, won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921. Some quotes by this extraordinary individual show that his knowledge and wisdom extended well beyond the confines of science:

“Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.”      Albert Einstein
“A human being is part of the whole called by the universe.”  Albert Einstein
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”      Albert Einstein

At the other end of the spectrum, we have great spiritual teachers embracing science.

His Holiness, The Dalai Lama spoke at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in late 2005. You can read Science at the Crossroadsan article based on his talk to learn more.

His Holiness, The Dalai Lama has also written a book on the subject of how science and spirituality unite. The book is The Universe in a Single Atom: The Convergence of Science and Spirituality.


I haven’t actually read this book yet, as I just discovered it myself while doing the research for this post. It has great reviews on Amazon and is currently in my cart. I am really looking forward to this read.

I found many quotes by The Dalai Lama relating to the unity of science and spirituality. I absolutely love the quote below:

“With the ever growing impact of science on our lives, religion and spirituality have a greater role to play reminding us of our humanity. There is no contradiction between the two. Each gives valuable insights into the other. Both science and the teachings of the Buddha tell us of the fundamental unity of all things.”            His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

It may seem, right now, that science is “catching up” to what the spiritual community has “known” all along, that science and spirituality unite in truly miraculous ways.

Of course, beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. Most mainstream scientists will continue to reject anything they cannot understand by using their five human senses and many spiritualists will continue to ignore the science that could disprove their old beliefs.

I have to admit that I am a science and mathematics geek, so this blending of science and spirituality has become a bit of an obsession for me. Many scholars of the scientific field are now embracing the spiritual realm and I find the result of this to be super impressive.

So, you want to learn more about how science and spirituality unite, right?

I am thrilled to share with you some of the theories out there and the scientific minds behind them. There are so many new discoveries coming into play. We have a wealth of knowledge and wisdom available to us. See if any of these resonate with you.

Nassim Haramein is an amateur physicist and founder of the Hawaii Institute for Unified Physics. He is also the director of research for Resonance Science Foundation. He and physicist Elizabeth Rauscher collaborated to develop a Unified Field Theory that they have named the Haramein Rauscher Metric.


Dr. Bruce Lipton, PhD is an American stem cell biologist who believes that our mind/body connection is stronger than our genes and DNA.  He teaches that our thoughts and beliefs can override our genes and lead us to greater health and well-being. He is also the author of several books including The Biology of Belief, Spontaneous Evolution and The Honeymoon Effect.


Greg Braden is a New York Times best-selling author, former computer geologist and pioneer in bridging science, spirituality and the real world. He has spent more than 25 years searching high mountain villages, remote monasteries and forgotten texts to uncover their timeless secrets.

Some of his books include The Divine Matrix, The God Code, The Spontaneous Healing of Belief and his newest offering, Human by DesignGreg is also a 2015-2020 Templeton Prize nominee.

If you enjoyed any of these clips, I encourage you to explore further and grow. There is so much to learn about what we are, why we are here and how we can connect on a much deeper level.

Wisdom Wednesday

I am so excited about this audio! It is Everyday Wisdom by Wayne Dyer. I’m not sure how it came to me but I am compelled to share it with you. I have been listening to this amazing wisdom daily for about ten days and I have become quite attached. I hope you enjoy!!

Gratitude 2.0 – Going Deeper

Being grateful for the good things in your life is one thing, but have you ever considered expressing gratitude for the things you aren’t so happy about? Let’s explore this concept together.

In my post How to live a happy life – 13 actions you can take today, I invited you to take a thirty-day gratitude challenge, where you would list three different things you are grateful for, each day for thirty days. If we look at our lists I’m guessing we will find mostly pleasant experiences and things that make us feel really good. That’s fabulous, but now, let’s go a little deeper.

What happens when we become grateful for those not so wonderful feeling experiences and people in our lives? Miracles happen!! Trust me, it is pure magic.

So you might be asking, how exactly am I supposed to be thankful for stuff that makes me feel lousy? Well, to start out, you don’t have to actually feel it. Fake it, if you have to. The more you practice, the better you will start to feel about it. Eventually, you will begin to believe it and before you know it, miracles!

My belief is that we are spiritual beings having a human experience here on Earth. We are here to learn, however, that part of us that is human, has allowed us to forget our purpose here and even that we are, at our core, spirit.

Spirit wants to know contrast. Without knowing pain, how could you know comfort? Without first experiencing fear, how could you experience courage? Without the feeling of grief, you would not be able to know delight. Without sadness, there is no happiness. Without blame, there can be no forgiveness. This list goes on and on and on.

In the book, The Language of Letting Go, Melody Beattie writes, “One simple concept can get us through the most stressful of times. It’s called gratitude. We learn to say, thank you, for these problems and feelings. Thank you for the way things are. I don’t like this experience, but thank you anyway. Force gratitude until it becomes habitual. Gratitude helps us stop trying to control outcomes. It is the key that unlocks positive energy in our life. It is the alchemy that turns problems into blessings, and the unexpected into gifts.”

In the book, Gratitude A Way of Life, Louise Hay writes, “We even want to be grateful for the lessons we have. Don’t run from lessons; they are little packages of treasure that have been given to us. As we learn from them, our lives change for the better. I now rejoice whenever I see another portion of the dark side of myself. I know that it means that I am ready to let go of something that has been hindering my life.”

Life on Earth will know conflict and opposition as long as we are still learning and growing. Cherish all of your moments, good and bad. Every one is required to make you who you are, and you are amazing!

Below is a great quote on opposition. I am not positive of who actually said it. It has been attributed to Winston Churchill, Henry Ford, William Wrigley Jr., and Ezra Pound. I suspect each has said it, in one form or another.

Love yourself, love your brother, love your life. Everyday say Thank You. Thank you God, Thank you Universe, Thank you Life, for everything, all of my experiences, because I know everything is a blessing, even those feelings, thoughts and experiences that don’t look like it at first.

When you are done being grateful, say “Something wonderful is going to happen today.” And it will.

Smiles and hugs!







Soulwork – find peace inside of you

Have you ever just looked around at your life and wondered “How did I get here?” I think most of us probably have at one time or another. This question hit me hard about six months ago. And it wasn’t the first time for me.

I was humming along just fine, happy and grateful for all of the blessings in my life, when something inside me shifted. The outer forces that may have contributed to my shift were that my fiftieth birthday was fast approaching and I had been laid off from the job I love due to lack of work coming in.

My transformation had begun. Who am I? Who do I really want to be? Is this the life I was meant to live? Who do I show to the world? What do I hide and why? Do I have a deeper purpose? I started using Google search like a magic eight ball. Every question that popped into my head, I threw at the search bar.

I couldn’t get enough information. I suddenly wanted to learn and know everything there is to know. I buried myself in a huge pile of books. I started journaling again. Why did I stop? Writing has always gotten me through life’s biggest challenges.

I started meditating and I was completely and pleasantly surprised at how great I started to feel shortly after beginning. I started remembering my dreams, so I now keep a dream journal on the night stand, next to my bed. I began taking nature walks that provide me with a powerful connection to life on this planet.

The answers started coming. I was led to books and people and blogs that could help me on my way. I would find one awesome resource that would lead to another, and that one to another after that.

I started listening to my intuition and taking actions I had previously feared. I ended a long-term relationship that wasn’t serving either of us, willing and longing to be alone so that I could truly discover the real me that lay under the layers of guilt, insecurity and repression.

We walk around blindfolded, unable to see our true reality. Everyone is searching for something. Everyone is trying to fill some hole inside of themselves. But when we are willing to look, very deep inside of ourselves, we will find the answers. The answers that can open our hearts and free our minds.

We are more than what we think we are!

We are spiritual beings having a human experience. All of the answers to all of the questions can be found within ourselves, if we are willing to search the depths of our soul. You have the power to be more!

The ego, or who you perceive yourself to be, is a master at blocking your soulwork and discovery of your authentic self. It will make excuses, fill you with fear and stop you from moving forward. The ego needs to be understood so that it can work for you, rather than against you.

Everything started moving in the right direction for me when I realized, without a doubt, that the only way I would truly be able to love others unconditionally was to somehow learn to love myself in that very way. Being able to accomplish this one task was the key difference between this journey and past self discovery missions.

When you can embrace EVERYTHING that you are, miracles happen. I realized, with great clarity, that we are all interconnected by the fabric of life. There is no separation between you and me. We are one. We are the same. When I look at you, I am looking in a mirror. If I see anything I don’t like, it is simply a reflection of myself. Something I must work on to improve.

When you love yourself, you love life, all of life, everything and everyone in it. You stop seeking to find happiness from external sources. Life loves you back. You will begin to attract the things that are required for you to shine your light on the world.

There is no one else quite like you. The world wants you just as you are. Fly your freak flag high in the air. Celebrate your weird, embrace your inner nerd, give your cat lady self a little kiss. You are already perfect.

Smile and hugs!
