Dear Readers: This guest post by Loîs Talagrand demonstrates the point I’ve been making over the years about meditation. It can even enhance your golf game!
A few years ago, I heard about a strange practice that could take my golf to the next level.
If you’re anything like me when I was a kid, you would watch the PGA tour and your jaw would hit the floor. How were these people able to hit the ball so far and with that much accuracy?
Watching these pros was like watching modern-day magic being to me. I became instantly hooked and the desire to play the game has never left me.Continue reading
There is a spiritual war going on in the world today, and our future depends on how well we deal with it. What’s happening at Mauna Kea in Hawaii is a prime example of the problem.
So is Standing Rock, Native American land on which oil companies wanted to build a pipeline without Native permission.
And the desecration of Uluru in Australia by tourists for generations, even though it has been spiritual home to the Anangu tribes of Central Australia for 30,000 years. While tourists climb to the top of Uluru, the Anangu don’t.
Have you noticed all the sacred land being confiscated for use by corporations and oil companies? It’s not just for them to make money fracking or drilling for oil, or putting up a telescope.
All this sacred land that is being confiscated and defiled has been cared for by indigenous peoples for time immorial.
The land is sacred because many of these locations are portals to allow celestial energies to come through and help us. This is why indigenous people fight so hard to protect these lands.
By taking over the sacred lands, the corporations are shutting down the light and divine guidance coming to this planet. We simply must not let that happen.Continue reading
In the words of Charles Dickens, “it was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” Those words apply just as well today. How can we keep sane?
I have found meditation to be an excellent resource.
If you have a garden, I know you spend time weeding. Many consider it an inconvenience. But true gardeners can get in “the zone” while doing it – and that is actually mindfulness, or meditation.
When I purchased my first house over 20 years ago, I was pretty darn excited. About everything, even weeding.
I do know that, in the bigger picture of things, weeds are simply plants that we don’t know the use for. . . yet.
But sometimes they grow where we don’t want them. And what’s to be done, but … weeding!Continue reading
This year, autumn officially begins on September 23, 2016, at 2:50 a.m. EST.
Our ancestors celebrated all equinoxes and solstices, but the autumn equinox seems to have been a little less celebrated than the others. I’m not sure what the historical reason is, but for myself, I’m sad to see summer coming to an end and am not quite ready to say goodbye to summer and welcome in the fall.
But it happens. It’s part of the cycle of life, and to be in tune with the natural world, it’s important to honor these special natural events.Continue reading

Whenever I mention the 7thGeneration principle to most people, they think I’m talking about the ecologically friendly laundry detergent company. I’m always surprised that more people don’t know the origin of the term, so I felt it deserved an episode, particularly at this time in our history, where our very future is at stake. […]Continue reading

Do you ever look up at the night sky and feel a longing? A familiarity? As if perhaps you came from the stars? I do. Whenever I look at the Pleiades I feel a calling to home. Many indigenous tribes say they came from the Pleiades. And there’s a reason for that and […]Continue reading
I’m very excited that my podcast, The Molly Larkin Show, will be launching on Wednesday, May 8.
The first episode will be an interview with Bear Heart by journalist Mike Watkiss, recorded in 1988 after Bear Heart prayed for snow in Colorado during a snow drought. And, yes, it snowed, making headlines.Continue reading
The Wind Is My Mother, which I co-authored with my teacher Bear Heart is now an audiobook.
Read by Native American actor Larry Winters, the audiobook carries the same meaning and depth as the physical book.
The Wind Is My Mother; The Life and Teachings of a Native American Shaman was first published in 1996 and translated into 12 languages. Still in print after 22 years, it is considered an “evergreen” in the publishing industry: a book that goes on selling for years because of its timeless message.
.Here’s what I wrote in the Epilogue added in 2012:Continue reading
“Everything is part of the Sacred Hoop and everything is related. Our existence is so intertwined that our survival depends upon maintaining a balanced relationship with everything within the Sacred Hoop.” Bear Heart
Earth Day is the perfect day to focus on the Sacred Hoop of All Creation and how to establish a relationship with the natural world around us.
In indigenous cultures, the circle is sacred — when we sit in a circle there is a spirit of oneness and everyone is equal.
The elders teach that the universe is in harmony as long as the Sacred Hoop, the circle of life, is intact.Continue reading
“What if everything is a call to prayer?
These were the words my good friend and spiritual mentor, Rev. Marchiene Rienstra, posted on Facebook recently. Here is her full post:
“I grew up in Pakistan and India, where five times every day, the call to prayer would ring out from a nearby minaret. I have often wished that we had that kind of reminder to turn our hearts and minds to God in this country.
“But recently I was struck with this thought, one I hope you ponder with me:“WHAT IF EVERYTHING IS A CALL TO PRAYER?Continue reading
Marcus Aurelius, best known by his portrayal in Russell Crowe’s epic film, Gladiator, was actually a real-life Roman Emperor. In the film, we only saw Marcus as a dying old man who served mostly as a plot device to initiate Russell Crowe’s journey from beloved Roman legionnaire general to a slave gladiator. But in history, Marcus was one of the most acclaimed Roman rulers. And a philosopher as well.Continue reading
What can we learn from the legend of Atlantis? What is Atlantis?
Around 360 B.C., the Greek philosopher Plato wrote of a highly spiritual, moral society and a technologically advanced utopian civilization that existed 9000 years before.
But the citizens became greedy, petty and “morally bankrupt.” As a result, the gods “became angry because the people had lost their way” so the gods sent a “terrible night of fire and earthquakes” that caused Atlantis to sink into the sea.
There is no evidence to back up the legend of Atlantis, yet the story refuses to die!
Whatever the truth, Atlantis is both a warning and a hope as we enter an age of reawakened spirituality.Continue reading
