You’ve reached a point in your life where you have thought about having children. Chances are, you have already passed other milestones in your life, such as finishing your career and getting married, and you see having children as the next logical step.
Forget the fact that children are expensive. Keep in mind how much you make at your career per year. Children cost around $250,000 to raise over a lifetime. Divide that by 18 years and you get $13,888.88 per child per year.
It adds up pretty quickly if you have more than just one child, and can quickly put a strain on your already fragile finances. With the current divorce rate at around 50%, never assume that you and your spouse will be together forever to help split the expenses. Read the rest of this entry »
I was nine years old when I saw three beautiful Angels, in what you could call a rather ‘unlikely setting’. My parents were visiting some friends one Saturday evening and when the drinks began to flow, they put me upstairs on the bed, in their friend’s master bedroom.
The adults were making quite a lot of noise downstairs, and I found myself lying on the bed looking up at the ceiling, when lo and behold, just like a sliding door, the ceiling opened up and there were three magnificent beings with the night sky in the background. Today I know they were Angels. Read the rest of this entry »
Early in life I looked for comfort in nature. As a rejected only child (my parents wanted six sons), I was often wandering on my own in nature’s garden. Long-term friendships did not exist, because my dad was in the military. We moved as much as seven times in nine months. Nature was my trusted playmate and my elder teacher.
My strong religious upbringing gave me cause to read a great deal, but dual faiths in one household sent me mixed messages, so I questioned everything related to the patriarchal faiths of my parents. Read the rest of this entry »
Ironically, there was a psychic lady who lived about four miles down the road who told her she was going to meet someone who lives nearby, that he also does psychic readings and that we were going to get married. She told her several other things too. She said this man you will meet went to the same high school, you have a past work connection with his family and he will one day help your sister in a time of need.
A year after we got married, we discovered that my wife used to work for my cousin Charley and that her brother is the supervisor at the same workplace. So, later that night I called my cousin and he confirmed all of it for us. Read the rest of this entry »
We all know people who have come in and out of our lives at just the perfect time to say just the right thing at just the right time. Some of these wonderful people may have stayed in our lives, or perhaps left just as quickly as they came.
I have had several experiences with Earth Angels, but looking back maybe they were not of this earth at all. When I think of Earth Angels, I think of one person in particular and that is my Mother. My mother has taught me many things that has helped me in my life. She has taught me the fruits of the Spirit by applying them in her life.
So, with this blog post I simply wish to thank my mother for being present in my life. Read the rest of this entry »
My student, Alison, had called me years before, because her first-born son, Jeffery, had died. The doctors called it a natural abortion, but they already knew he was a boy. Therefore, to her he was her son, whom she named Jeffery. After that incident, the doctors advised her, “You will not be able to have children.”
Sharing her grief with her father one day at work, as they were employed in the same office, a co-worker, who had a fundamentalist faith, overhead them. She immediately offered her unsolicited opinion to Alison, “You had bad thoughts and killed your baby. God is punishing you by not allowing you to ever be a mother!” Read the rest of this entry »
I had many paranormal experiences as a child. I felt I could speak to animals and I had dreams about future events that came true. I remember specific dreams of numbers that came in the lottery the next day. I was only five at the time, who knows about the lottery at that age?
How can you determine if your own child has psychic abilities? If a child shows signs of great knowledge beyond their years, if a child can sense what will happen before it does, or recognizes a place but has never been there, then you should pay careful attention.
If you have noticed your child speaking to imaginary friends or looking off into areas where there is nothing there are also signs of your child having a sixth sense, or psychic ability. Read the rest of this entry »
Native Americans first called horses “Medicine Dogs.” There was no word at the time for these strange animals that seemed to heal with just energy. Today all horse aficionados know all too well how easily these animals heal.
As an equine therapist, I have seen so many children and adults with disabilities, who often appear very uncoordinated on land, look perfectly graceful when they are on the back of a horse. I have also observed terrified children becoming calm within just a few seconds of touching a horse. Horses really are strong animal medicine.
They say that every horse deserves the love of a young girl. I also think that every child deserves to have a horse as a friend. These giant animals have a sixth sense about children. It is like a switch is flipped when a horse and child meet. Horses run in herds, and therefore, being alone is terrifying to them. However, the majority of them will ignore their own fears when carrying a child. Read the rest of this entry »
