Circle of Life by Michelle S
I know we are soul mates and just are meant to be together.
We are all energy beings connected through auras, chakras, and character traits that draw one person to another. A strong attraction to another feels like you “know” the person or have seen them somewhere. The question really should be which one of our past lives? Something so familiar yet meeting this person for the first time. How can that be a possibility?
Living in a parallel Universe
It really is a Circle of Life. We are all part of a bigger Universe continuing through the centuries and into our present time. Ancestral charts, Akashic Records, Past Lives, and Channeling our Loved Ones are tools that figure out all of our past and our family’s history. We weren’t all famous American Indians, English Royalty, or Famous Artists. There are murderers, prostitutes, witches and other darker pasts and don’t forget those that died at a very young age. The point is all those past selves became part of our makeup and I believe intertwine all of our energies from past to now. We feel some affinity for certain people and repelled by others not necessarily by looks but through their very essence.
Everyone was given a contract before they are brought into this world. This includes who our parents, siblings, friendships, marriages, etc. When presented with our actual “life”, unfinished business from past lives (and these can go back to the very beginning of time) have to be completed before we move on to our next life. This may sound silly but is it really that farfetched?
How many times have you met someone and you just “know” them or straining to remember where you have seen this person? These people are part of our long ago past so we just keep re-acquainting over and over until they move or we move on with new contracts to complete a new cycle.
Changing Your Energy Now by Sunhee
You have to remember that in your DNA, you are used to seeing dysfunction, abuse or people who had chaos in their lives. Try to look back and see why the feeling of mental illness, depression, anger, sadness, fear are all emotions that you are used to feeling. Once you do the internal work and you work on yourself to forgive, you will feel a huge force lifted off of your chest. You are setting yourself free. Its liberating to take those emotions off of you, and putting it into the air to fly away.
Like energy attracts like energy, so remember that if you were in a dysfunctional relationship, most likely you attracted the same people as friends, in a job, and family members. It’s healthy to take the time to clean out the closet and re assess what really makes you feel good. The GOOD feeling is what is going to give you energy, make you more motivated, smile and laugh more and on and on. You are in charge of what energy you want to surround yourself with, and you are in charge of doing the internal work. If you stay at your job and stay miserable, your body becomes numb to that feeling. If you have friends that are all about them, then you get drained because its a one sided relationship. If your family expects you to run to them all the time and you do; then you will feel drained once again. Its time to buckle down and organize your energy. Energy is time, and time is money. Everything gets affected and it spirals downward before you know it.
Awakening Inner Spirit By Angel
Some may ask, How do I know when the Inner Spirit is awakened? The human mind is complex, having many
beliefs. Beliefs that are conscious and others are hidden in the unconscious. Some beliefs activate the Inner
Spirit and others put it to ‘sleep’.
When the human mind dominants by over thinking and you give it power, it controls your life, creating many
complexities through its familiar belief patterns. There are beliefs that trigger the ego control and those that
activate the inner Spirit. When the ego is running your life, that area it’s running it’s running have dormant and
active beliefs that are not serving the inner spirit. The Ego reacts through a flight, flight, protect mode where
it feels it has to shield itself from lower frequencies.
If you allow the human ego to control your life and identify with it as you, you create separateness and
experience struggles. The stronger the human ego control, comes in the forms of resistance. judgment,
force, and hate the greater the level of struggle creating more struggles and negative influences. Habits and
beliefs that are not in alignment with your Spirit being attract lessons, in the form of challenges in the area
necessary to evolve, to help you become smarter “spiritually. As you start to Awaken the inner Spirit, you
expand spiritually and become more playful, loving with a peaceful expression.
Choices we make are based on the most Dominant belief System-Transform the Belief System-Transform
Judgment is a label of right and wrong, good and bad based on inward beliefs. Any feelings you are
experiencingas a participant you then identify with those feelings, thereby trigger behaviors that are
self-focused, in insecure, fear- driven, and needy. Quiet the mind and calm the emotions. Put your attention
on love, appreciation, gratitude and celebration not on fixing, correcting the dramas in the world, Move you
out of judging the situation or person and avoid attracting negative influences. Focus and keep your attention
on what you would like to create, rather than what is annoying you. In other words go above the condition
rather than underneath it.
Embrace any feelings of Fear, insecurity, rather than resist, persist through complaining or judge it.
Be the observer rather than participant of the human thoughts, unpleasant situations or chaos in order to
diffuse its power over you . This will allow you to move into an inward calmness to respond vs. react to the
thoughts,situation or chaos.
A Buddhist said if you don’t accept the gift it is not yours. So if someone behaves in a manner that you don’t
feel connected to, bless them and know it is perfect. Yon don’t have to entertain it, by teaching, giving your
opinion, judging, etc. That moves you out of a inner Peace and Love and then the Ego control of fight,
flight and protections kicks in.
A Peaceful-Joyful-Loving Approach to the Inner Spirit mind is simple. Its focus is on gratitude, innovation and exploring new tasks at hand. This educates the human mind and you become smarter in a more joyful manner.
When the heart is focused on appreciation and love first in your life, it triggers the Inner Spirit to become
more active and there is a more loving flow with life and all decisions. The Awakened Inner Spirit has a sense
of freedom, an aliveness, higher sense of love, joy, peace and harmony. You feel vital and accepting. A sense
of being in the moment and enjoying life.
You “awaken your Inner Spirit” when you transmute enough of the beliefs that no longer serve. As these beliefs are transmuted, more of your inner Spirit ‘awakens’ and can express in a fuller manner. Eventually you experience a level of Spiritual Freedom, a heightened frequency level of inner peace, greater joy and pure love. where you are so connected to love that there is no shielding because the lower frequencies cannot touch this vibration.
You enjoy sharing from a ‘we’ focus and flow with life in a calm, peaceful, harmonious, humble, happier and more positive manner.
Proactive vs Reactive by Terri
It is always best when one can be Proactive and not Reactive.
When one is faced with a situation that throws us a curve our immediate sense is to react. This then puts us into fear and panic, but if we can flip the switch, think, and be proactive we WIN.
I always like to teach my clients that when we are faced with a situation it is best if one can learn to put it in their hands, which then allows them to look at what it is. When the situation resides in our emotional place or our heads it seems to feel like a ten-headed monster, but once we can place it in our hands and look at it outside of our inner self then all of a sudden that ten- headed monster reveals itself to be a small little insect. Wow, all that anxiety, fear and discomfort over something that is totally manageable.
When we React to things, people or situations we are putting ourselves at a disadvantage.
When we are Reactive this means that we are acting in response to a situation rather than creating it or controlling it ourselves.
When we are Proactive we are creating or controlling a situation by causing something to happen rather than responding to it after it has happened. An example of this is to be Proactive in identifying and preventing potential problems. It also means that when something has happened that we stop and examine what just occurred so that we make a positive choice.
I do believe that we are all intuitive, and if we listen to that little voice in our heads or that feeling that grabs our tummies when we are being altered to be mindful of something or someone than one can more easily make the choice to be Proactive and not Reactive to whatever that situation is.
It is also so very important to remember that we have CHOICES. We sometimes make a choice that turns out not to be the best choice or in our best interest. If one can do their best not to view this as right or wrong, but rather as an opportunity to make another choice we will be well on our way. This will allow us to grow and learn from our experiences which will then allow us to make Proactive Choices and not make choices because of Reacting in the moment.
Why do psychics readings fail? By Vaishali
Psychics are considered to be “seers” – they can foresee the future. They possess the ability of clairvoyance or clear vision to be able to see into the future using ESP or a sixth sense. Depending on the psychic, they may also possess clairaudience meaning psychic hearing or hearing in a paranormal manner. Claircognizance or knowingness allows a psychic to connect to the Universe and just know the answer. These are just a few “clairs” a psychic may possess.
A lot of people think psychics are phony or cannot give them a clear or proper answer. There is some truth to that. Some psychics may be phony and make things up. Some psychics may not be able to give the clients a clear answer. However, genuine psychics do exist. It is like any other trade, you may need to go through several bad ones to get to a good one. Also, not every psychic is right for every person. You can go to the best doctor in the world, but if he cannot cure you, he is of no use to you. On the other hand, you can just go to an ordinary doctor, and if he can cure you, then he is worth gold to you. The same theory applies for psychics. At the end of the day, you have to find the one that is right for you.
In addition to finding the right psychic, you also need to be able to ask them the right questions. Otherwise, you may not get a proper reading. When people come to a psychic, they generally have an issue that is hounding them or are looking for some information about how the future will turn out.
Here is an example of how you can frame the right question for the psychic:
Let’s say Mary has a question about her love life. She goes to a psychic and asks, “Tell me about my love life.” When you approach a psychic with a general question, you will get a general answer. It is like saying “I want food” which is too general of a statement.
However, Mary is already in a relationship with John.
When you first ask a psychic a question about a relationship, the first question they will ask you is “Is it about an existing relationship or a new relationship?” So, Mary can save some time by asking about Mary and John. It is like saying “I want to get some Italian food” instead of just asking for food.
Being specific about the question will save you some time.
For instance, asking “I would like to know more about the future potential of our relationship,” or “I would like to know why there is a communication problem between us.” Asking a specific question is like asking for a specific order. “I would like to get Linguini with White Clam sauce.”
Comparing the analogy, the two parties are John and Mary, or Linguini and White Clam sauce.
The next pertinent question is about timing. Do you want to know one week out in the future, one month or six months? Just asking about the future of a relationship does not say much. Maybe nothing will happen in a week, but in 3-6 months, you will talk about engagement.
So, coming down to our restaurant analogy, it would be “I would like to get Linguini with White clam sauce in the next 30 minutes” or maybe Wednesday of next week.
So, instead of going to a psychic and asking “tell me about my future,” think of what it would be to ask “John and I are seeing each other, where do you see this relationship in the next six months?” Do you think you will save both you and the psychic a lot of questions and get a clearer answer?
Now you have specified the following:
· The two parties in the question
· The query or information needed
· The time-frame over which this information is expected
Just noting these 3 points will save you about 2-3 minutes for the reading. Learning to frame a proper question is an art. The more specific the question, the more specific the answer will be. Usually, a client has something specific in mind that he/she would like to know. However, they lack the knowledge to frame a proper question. This leads to a back and forth round of questions between the client and the reader. In order to save time and get the most out of your reading, frame specific questions. A precise question will get you a precise answer. You will have time to explore further in the area of your question based on the response you receive for your question.
A good psychic may often ask you a few questions about your question itself or re-frame your question so that you will get a more accurate response. Generally, a client is always looking for a specific response, but has some issues in framing a question properly. So, the next time you are looking for an accurate psychic reading, make sure you are armed with a good set of questions for the psychic.
“To ask the right question is already half the solution of a problem.” Archetypes of the Collective Unconscious,1934 by Carl Jung.
Magic of Sound by Patti
This month I am going to talk about the magic of sound. Cultures the world over use sound to attune to, invoke, and transform consciousness. Sound is a powerful tool, because it is vibrational in nature, and we are vibrational beings. Modern science shows us that all life is vibrational in nature. This is in line with age old mystical thought of most cultures, which often alludes to the vibrational nature of Creation. We have all experienced it… whether an “AMEN” at the end of a prayer – or an “OM” at the end of a yoga class. I work with sound a lot in my magical workings. From banging a loud gong to powerfully shift energy to the ringing of soft chimes to gently awaken the senses or spirits.
My favorite use of sound magic is with our human voice. From chanting and singing, to the conscious use of specific sounds to evoke a specific outcome. It is called a HEKA. Heka means the Art of Sound, or Alchemy of sound itself. Here is a basic rule… Consonants are FORM – Form that Shapes. Vowels are FORCE – Forces that ignite. You can make up your own Hekas from that! Try just doing vowel sounds ahhh, ehhh, eeee, oooo, uuuuu – and see how invigorating it can be! Chanting vowels sounds is great before an important meeting or test where you need clarity and focus. Here are a few more meanings of sounds: U is dragon vowel (Nature into action). LOVE is the force / power. A is vowel that brings birth / life. L is Dragon in the land. Z is Serpent – Lightening strike between heaven and earth. (Divine wisdom) Try using these sounds in a chant. Note how you feel, what you experience, what sight and senses open up, etc… Pretty cool huh?! Powerful too! Now, go out and make up your own power chants and sounds… I promise, it will open up a whole new magical world for you! Remember, magic is EVERYWHERE! “Til next time. With love, blessings and big, big hugs from Hollywood! xox Patti
Dream School by Patti
This month I am going to talk about “Dream School”. Well, “Dream School” is what I call it! Night time is a wonderful time to connect to spirit and get answers and guidance from the universe. Plus it is a wonderful tool in developing one’s own intuition and psychic ability! One reason for it, is that it gives us the opportunity to get our “logical brain” out of the way for awhile! Many of us humans tend to “over think” things – and sometimes that is not the most advantageous mind set for spiritual growth and enlightenment.
Here are a simple technique anyone can use. First, set a glass of water by your bed at night. Water is an amazing “dream enhancer”. Plus, as an added bonus, a glass of water by the bed actually collects any negative energies that may come in during the night – so you are getting two benefits from one simple glass of water! Please note, you should never drink the water right by your bed, because it has spent the night gathering up and collecting these energies. Ever notice how bedside water just doesn’t taste very good in the morning? That is why! Use it to water plants if you want, but keep your drinking water further away than your bedside table. Okay, back to Dream School… you have your glass of water by the bed. As you lay down, ask your guides or higher power (or whatever you believe in) to come to you in your dreams to help you with any guidance or questions you may have. Or, just let them know you are “enrolling in Dream School” and want to develop and learn in your sleep. Then just go to sleep! At first you may or may not remember your dreams… or they may not make sense – but after just a little while, you will notice a new clear direction or path or understanding is unfolding. It will get clearer and clearer and you can ask for any specifics as it develops!
Part two of Dream School is in the morning… if you have a set time you have to get up, set your alarm for 10 minutes before that. When your alarm rings, again ask for guidance from divine in your life path – or just in your day ahead… then hit the “snooze” button and know you have 10 minutes to travel to the world between awake and sleep for some final “schooling”. This is again a perfect time when you are sleepy and not focused on your left and rational brain. When you wake up at the next alarm, you will feel a slight sense of direction, clarity and focus to start your day!
Part three of Dream School… When you first get up, take a few minutes to think about anything you may have got. Think about how you feel, any thoughts going through your head. Don’t sensor yourself – just let the thoughts flow! Again, with just a little practice, new information and insights will come flooding in every morning!
I recommend setting up a little altar or “power space” next to your bed. It doesn’t have to be religious or spiritual – though it certainly can be. But put a few things there that empower you; a photo, a candle, a flower. Perhaps a crystal, statue or rock you found along a path. Things that help you feel good about YOU! Keep a pad of paper or journal there. Allow yourself at least three minutes every morning to journal your new expanding thoughts and understanding. Perhaps get some crayons or drawing pencils to draw what you see or feel if you don’t feel like writing. Either way, you are literally helping develop your intuition and psychic ability with every word or color stroke. Don’t worry if you don’t know what to write or draw at first… just let it flow. No one ever has to see it. You will be surprised in how in just a short time, more messages and clarity are going to come out of your writings or drawings or even from you Crayola color choices! Plus it is just plain fun and helps develop your creativity as well as your intuition! With only a few extra minutes every day – you can expand your universe by galaxies! Give it a try! I promise, it will open up a whole new magical world for you! Remember, magic is EVERYWHERE! “Til next time. With love, blessings and big, big hugs from Hollywood! ;o) xox Patti
Value by Isabelle
I recently received a little story on a post from a dear friend, in India. The story had to do with a man, who could not hold on to his pens. One day a friend suggested he buy a very expensive pen. Never in a million years, did he expect to pay that kind of money, for a 22K pen. After many months the person checked with the man, to see the status, of his pen. He cherished that pen, and it was still, in his possession. We must all think of ourselves, as a treasured possession. I am not saying to be self absorbed, or ego driven. What I am saying, is know your value. Think of yourself, as a piece of fine china, or a very expensive pen. When you know your VALUE, you will expect nothing less, than the very best treatment, from everyone. You will be handled, with care, with love, and treated , the way, you deserve. I do that, and I expect only the best treatment. I am not saying I’m a princess, but I ask all the time, to only align myself, with those people, and situations, that are for my highest good.Why would one allow themselves, to be in a relationship, be it a friendship, a marriage, or partnership, with someone , who is not coming from a place of treating you, with VALUE. People who know me , realize I cherish my friends, loved ones, and those people, I share my space, with. I would do anything, for the people I am connected to. Never expect any thing less, from the people around you. If they can’t cherish you, for the wonderful person, you are, then you need to re think, that relationship. Be it family, friendship, or business associate. We all have, VALUE. Please do not forget that. Do not allow anyone, or situation, to treat you any other way. You are all precious, to me, and I VALUE, each, of you.
When One Reading Is Enough by Kimberly
Being Psychic is intriguing, however, being a Medium makes life worthwhile. As a Certified Psychic and Medium my life is nothing more than fun and entertaining and I have been blessed so many times by the people who come into my life. At a recent Psychic and Holistic Fair is was business as usual reading for clients who had questions about relationship, career, finances and hoping to hear from someone on the other side. As I finished a reading a very nicely dressed woman with her young daughter approached my table and the woman asked if I was available and if her daughter could sit with us for the reading. I grabbed an extra chair and we all sat down at my table. As I reached for my cards I pushed them aside and said “you lost someone” and she nodded her head. I suddenly looked directly at her and said “Mother” and watched her lean in and answer “yes”. Suddenly so much was coming in. I said “Sister” and the woman looked at her little girl and smiled. I found myself looking at this little girl across from me and telling her “she loved when you brushed her hair and fixed it fancy with flowers” and I watched this little girl start to cry and her mother was smiling as a tear threatened to escape. I said “she loved dancing” and the mother said, no. I insisted she loved dancing and the mother continued to say no. I told the little girl that she had something hanging on her bedroom wall that she had made and that it was important. This is when they shared with me that the little girls’ 12 year old sister had died unexpectedly, they did not know she was going to die. The girl had made a picture to honor her sister and hung it on her wall. I told the little girl that her sister likes to visit her in her bedroom and listen to the music and thinks it is funny when she sings but likes it. The little girl also validated that she used to brush her sisters hair. I insisted again that she likes dancing and the little girl suddenly brightened up and told me that her little sister dances. They began to ask questions as I channeled this little 12 year old girl from spirit. Both of them laughing and smiling. I told the little girl her sister wanted her to pay attention to the little chickadee birds because they are her and she cried again telling me that the day her sister died there were all these birds flying around the big window in their house. As we finished up the reading the mother asked if I would like to see a picture of her daughter who had passed and she shared with me the girl had been injured at birth and had never been able to walk or speak. This was the first they had ever heard her words. And THIS makes what I do worthwhile. I am forever grateful for the gift of this mother and daughter visiting me that day.
Diary of a Seaside Therapist by Elaine
The atmosphere at the spiritualist church was highly charged with energy as eighteen people sat expectantly, waiting for their first ever meditation circle to begin.
We all shifted about on hard wooden chairs smiling nervously at one another.
I knew that meditation was the key to my spiritual development and was excited and anxious all at once.
Our teacher James entered the room, and asked us to introduce ourselves.
We were a diverse group consisting of people from young to old, spiritual wannabees to the just plain curious. Our common link was that none of us knew how to meditate. I had a rough idea of the Aura but needed to know how to open my Chakras.
James settled us down and we began some deep breathing exercises. This had a calming effect and I began to relax. He asked us to visualise each coloured Chackra as the tight bud of a flower slowly opening. As I followed his instructions I felt the temperature around me change. An icy blast of energy hit my face which became itchy as if there were cobwebs all around it. I felt light headed and disorientated. I tried to visualise growing roots from the soles of my feet to ground myself but it didn’t work. I felt as if the top of my head and blasted open and I was flying through the air in time and space.
Panicking I tried desperately to catch my breath. It felt as if a tidal wave of energy had hit me leaving me unable to breathe.
James took us on a journey to sit by an oak tree and then psychically placed an object on a chair in the center of the circle, asking us to try and pick up what it could be? All I could think of was trying to stay grounded. I was terrified and out of my depth. Suddenly a vision of a clear quartz crystal popped into my head.
Slowly he brought us all back into the room. I gasped for breath and was shocked to find out that I had been crying. How did I become so out of control?
James asked us all to tell him what we had seen in the center of the circle.
Many had seen nothing, someone said, rather oddly, “a sheep” and I said “a clear quartz crystal.”
James shot me a look. I was the only person to see what he had actually put there with his psychic ability. I don’t know who was the most surprised, him or me.
Later I asked why I had been in such a terrified state? He explained that when you open up for the first time spirit can be so excited to finally make contact they will rush forwards.all at once . I had virtually been knocked over by their terrific energy in their enthusiasm to connect with me. Flattered as I was the experience had left me feeling out of control and too frightened to repeat it.
From then on every time I tried to attend the circle something would happen to prevent me from leaving home. My car broke down before I set off, an unexpected event would get in the way or I would feel unwell. Later I found out that the energy in the circle was not being controlled by James and we were all in a certain amount of danger. Spirit had decided to prevent me from any more exposure to harm and were keeping me safe at home.
From that point on I meditated quietly and alone. I opened my Chakras cautiously and closed down at once if I felt overwhelmed.
Once I asked for a sign that spirit were close and when I opened my eyes a ball of violet energy with gold sparks flying from it was right there in front of my eyes.
“Whoah, back off ” I said!
That was too close for comfort. From then on I always asked for my guides to come forwards gently and in my time, not theirs. This may have taken me longer to develop my skills but it felt comfortable and right.
Once I asked if I would ever return to the spiritualist church and work from the platform, giving readings and messages from loved ones.
The answer boomed in my ear.
“NO!. You are to face a much wider audience and will help many to find love and happiness.”
Once again I was shocked by their response. Working from the church had been a lifetime ambition of mine. So just what dd spirit have in store for me?
Unable to fathom any of this information I decided the best thing for me to do was to surrender to whatever they wanted from me.
The most incredible adventure was about to start……..
