Treat Yourself During The Holidays

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comThe holiday season is a time when many of us are focused on family and friends. I have always found that this time of year brings joy, but also a little sadness. Feelings of grief tend to peak around the holidays, as we notice empty chairs at large family gatherings, or wrap gifts and find old tags with a loved one’s name on it. It cannot be avoided, but feeling grief or loss of a  loved one around the holidays is also a reminder of the depth of our love for that person.

The stress of the holidays can be quite overwhelming. We are worried about ‘having enough,’ or purchasing the ‘right gift.’ Did we forget something, or someone? At times we tend to go overboard and then regret it later. If you’re like me, you’ll set a budget limit per family member, and then find you’ve far surpassed it with one, and then struggle to make up the difference for the others!

For example, my daughter is probably the easiest person in the world to buy for, and I always go overboard with her gifts. Then I have to scramble to find things for my son to equal the value and number of gifts.

Strength In Frailty

click here for a free reading at PsychicAccess.comThe wise accept that it is sometimes best to give in when under pressure. Sun Tzu was a great teacher in the art of flexibility in leading his people, through teaching, education, art, poetry and the art of grace. To his people, this was magic. It meant listening to his opponent, pointing out his strengths, not cornering them, and letting them have a way out to continue their way of life.

He was a great artist and poet, and was known not as a warrior, but as a visionary and leader. Now little is left of this art of grace, the art of diplomacy, of delegation. This art requires a delicate balance of self-control and sacrifice, which need not always be exhibited by one person alone. There is strength in frailty, and showing humility and spirit in the face of great pressure. It will always demonstrate the greater need to preserve one’s people over the greed of self-preservation and ego, seen over the many reigns of the great emperors of past.

One could fight to the very end, but yet to what end? At what cost? So many people seem to feel one should take a small point of contention and fight it down to its last little molecule of dust. For what?

I Have Looked At Life From Both Sides Now – Part 2

Click here to get a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comContinued from Part 1

Did I mention that I have two beautiful girls, now both in their twenties? We call my oldest daughter Jersey Jean. This has been her nickname since childhood. And what a talented miss she is! She is into music. She plays the guitar and piano, and she is also a very good singer. Jersey Jean did college for one year, and then dropped out, and did much performing. I am grateful for this and proud of her for sticking with what she really wanted to do.

My younger daughter Lizbeth has a completely different personality. She is also artistic, but her talent is in fashion design. She completed her schooling and has been working for a famous designer for the past year. And we had some great news! She created her own special clothing selection, was noticed and now she is getting ready for her first showing. I know, with her artistic ways, that she will achieve her dream of being famous one day.

By now I have figured out that I am in the hospital. How and why I am here, is still not clear to me. I was talking to my friend Paula on the phone. The I felt dizziness and a searing, but brief pain up through my neck and head. After that I don’t remember anything.

Your Angels As Your Co-Creators

click here for a free reading at PsychicAccess.comWhen we think of angels, we typically think of spiritual wisdom, guardianship, personal serenity and metaphysical insight. But did you know angels can also aid us in our creative pursuits? Have you ever heard of being inspired by a muse or divine inspiration? That is the sure sign of angels at work.

Two Archangels in particular, Jophiel (Beauty of God) and Uriel (Fire of God) are known for their association with creative inspiration. If you’re a creative person feeling stuck, or at a loss, call upon these angels for their assistance.

One of the easiest ways to do this is to create a vision board with a series of images and sayings which relate to your personal creative hopes and dreams. You may also include these two angels in your daily meditations or prayers. Or try writing an open letter to them. They are always listening and willing to help, but only if we call upon them for assistance.

Inventory And Choices

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comPeople often ask me how to make more progress on their spiritual path. Unfortunately the answer is always the same: time, practice, dedication and money. Money? Yes, even in the days of tribalism, the Shaman was always paid. Communities supported the shaman, to enable her to serve the tribe while keeping her own spiritual practice current and vital. So, yes, the currency of support these days is not food or shelter, but it is money.

As a professor at an art college, I used to observe that the students who were true artists often practiced their art in every spare moment. The students that only wanted a career in art did all they could do just to get by with their classes and training, so they could launch their ‘career’ and get what they wanted and desired, such as money, fame, status or lifestyle.

One is not better than the other, by the way. But this is about looking at what choices you truly make, not what you imagine. Take an inventory of where you spend your time, energy and money, and then look at it carefully, and learn. Own your choices so you don’t convince yourself or others that you are a victim.

By owning your choices, you will have the benefit of not manipulating others (consciously or unconsciously) by presenting as a victim that must be taken care of, and therefore cannot be held accountable. Not presenting as a victim means you will learn to ask for help and support in an honest and mature fashion, rather than singing a sob story to get help and support.

The Healing Power Of Creativity

click here to get a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.com

Creative people have all sorts of ideas about what art is, or isn’t, and who is or isn’t an artist. Ironically this is especially true of artists themselves. So, what does this have to do with your Spirit and why am I talking about it?

Art is a powerful form of expression. It allows us to communicate complex emotions through various mediums, such as visual art, music, performance, and so on. When we are in the space of creating we connect with a subconscious part of ourselves. This can be a powerfully healing experience, and help us process and integrate our emotions on a deep level.

When we were children, we didn’t have any preconceived ideas about art. If you observe young children, you’ll see this very clearly. They don’t worry about how ‘good’ an artist they are; most kids just see art as a form of play. They love to draw, or paint, or color, and are typically pretty thrilled with their own creations.

The Deepest Burrows Of The Spirit

click here to get a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comWherein we have the natural places in which we sequester our spirits – in sundry spaces such as temples or churches; within the bowers of our trees in nature, within our souls when there is no place to hide; in the suns open glare in the open deserts; or in the cold stare of the crowd – there you will still find the deep sequestered self of your soul. It is your own, not to be shared, never to be sold.

Even if one is not able to, for whatever reason, express one’s faith or reason within a world that is unreasonable, to not only a god, but perhaps one’s idea of it, whether it be of art, of love, or science, there within the sequestered self, there resides the natural spirit.

When you feel there is no place wherein you find a place to whisper your deepest prayer or desire, or your sweetest secrets or confessions to your God, where you feel there should be no man who can intervene, there should be a place where you can find a place of solace, where you can express your spiritual self and inclinations, deep within your mind.
