In her 1951 cult classic Esoteric Astrology, Alice A. Bailey describes Gemini as one of the most important signs of the zodiac. If you took a survey, most people would probably not say this. It's not Aquarius, of Age of Aquarius fame. It's not Aries, of Aries Point fame. It's not the ever-infamous Scorpio, and it's not Capricorn, the Moon sign that Augustus Caesar proudly revealed about himself to assert how powerful he was, had stamped into coins, then tried to hide. I think that A.A.B. knew what she was talking about, and that it's more relevant now than ever. More

Omega Institute Step Into Your Power, Part 1: An Interview With Gabrielle Bernstein
An Interview With Gabrielle Bernstein
Omega: As a New York Times best-selling author, motivational speaker, and the social media-savvy founder of HerFuture.com, you’ve been hailed as a next-generation thought leader and a role model for postmodern spiritual seekers. What is your advice for stepping into your power so you can lead with authenticity? Gabrielle: Stepping into your power is about getting real.

Omega Institute Free to Forgive by Jennifer Thompson
My name is Jennifer Thompson. In 1984, I was a college student, 22 years old, and was brutally raped at knifepoint in my apartment. During the attack, I made a very concerted effort to pay attention to the facial features and anything I could remember to bring to the police department later on, hoping that I would survive. A few hours later, as I was sitting in the police department, it became very clear that I had gotten a very good look at the man who had raped me. And I hated this man with a vengeance and a blind hate that I can’t even articulate. More
Omega Institute 9 Steps to Forgiveness by Frederic Luskin
1. Know exactly how you feel about what happened and be able to articulate what about the situation is not okay. Then, tell a trusted couple of people about your experience. 2. Make a commitment to yourself to do what you have to do to feel better. Forgiveness is for you and not for anyone else. More
Omega Institute The Power of Forgiveness by Sharon Salzberg and Robert Thurman
How do we forgive those who have hurt us? How is it possible to reconcile our differences with individuals who have done us harm or hurt our families or those responsible for committing deliberate acts of violence? Is forgiveness imperative in all cases? Or is forgiveness a spiritual absolute we wrestle with but nearly always fall short of, unable to leave grievances behind or let bygones be bygones? More

Omega Institute How To Use the Complete Brain by Deepak Chopra
Thanks to Dr. Dan Siegel, a psychiatrist whose work combines therapy with intimate knowledge of the brain, I took a completely different approach to how I spend my time every day. The goal for Siegel is a healthy brain that sustains a person’s well-being. As he sees it, the brain needs proper nutrition every day. I had never heard it put this way, and by heeding his advice, I found that I could activate parts of my brain that could only thrive if they were awakened. More
