The very first, and rather touching description of humility that I ever heard was during my earliest days of following a Twelve Step Program of Alcoholics Anonymous. I was read out by a man with 16 years of sobriety:
Humility is perpetual quietness of heart. It is to have no trouble. It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore. To wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me. It is to be at rest when nobody praises me, and when I am blamed or despised, it is to have a blessed home in myself where I can go in and shut the door and kneel to my Father in secret and be at peace, as in a deep sea of calmness when all around and about is seeming trouble.
My mentor in that program told me to try kneeling in prayer. She told me this humbling posture would strengthen my intention of any prayer I was reciting. Read the rest of this entry »
It is okay to say no. As a matter of fact, it is imperative to learn to say no, and stick with it. We observe that many of you try to be all things to all people. You run yourselves ragged, physically and emotionally, trying to please other people.
You put others ahead of yourselves and then become frustrated and angry when you have no time left for your own personal lives. This is exhausting, stressful and becomes completely unrealistic over time.
The challenge in setting healthy personal boundaries often arises when it becomes difficult to prioritize your own needs and desires against the expectations of others. Since when do these people rule your roost? Since when are their expectations more valid or important than your own peace of mind, ideas or schedules? Why do you give them such power over your dreams, goals, ambitions and life? Read the rest of this entry »
Do you wonder if you are an empath? Many people are empathic and are not aware that they are. An empath is someone with the strong ability to feel the thoughts, emotions, feelings and energy of others. It is a person with the ability to sense, connect and understand on a soulful level with the spirit of another individual on Earth. Below are some of the traits you may have if you are an empath.
You may have a hard time separating between your own feelings and the feelings of others, at times. This is because empaths absorb other people’s emotions and energy subconsciously. Because most untrained empaths do not realize when they do this, it is often very difficult for them to distinguish between their own feelings and the feelings of others, causing them to feel sad at times where there is no apparent reason for it.

For example, the recent presidential election seems to have divided so many friends and family members. Not everyone seems to have the same thoughts as I do on this matter, since I feel we should embrace our differences, celebrate that we all have different views and respect others opinions. We should rejoice that we all have something different to bring to the table.
Not everyone appreciates a difference in opinion. Instead they wish to control others and they want everyone to see and think the way they do. If you don’t, well they might even become hostile and say and do hurtful things.
Recently, while praying, I asked spirit for a message to show there is still light, and love, and kindness, and compassion on this planet. I received a vision and a very strong message of affirmation. Read the rest of this entry »
Your soul family are those people you’ve probably known over many lifetimes, and whose auras and experiences are similar to your own. When you meet one, you may find yourself drawn to him or her, even if there are differences in background, age, or culture.
As with all good friends, a soul family member will instinctively understand and support you. When you meet for the first time, you might have a conversation that lasts for hours. And you’ll always be happy to see them, even on your worst days. It’s almost like being in love, but purely platonic…though you might wish you could marry the person, even when they’re not your preferred romantic gender. Read the rest of this entry »
With so many unexpected world events recently, a lot of people are feeling stressed, dismayed, worried and anxious. In such perilous times as we are currently facing, it is vitally important to practice self-care.
What do I mean by self-care? From an intuitive’s point of view, after years of working in the psychic field, I have learned that it is important to take care of yourself first and foremost. Is it selfish? Definitely not. It is selfish to take care of everyone else around you, without taking care of you first. You will not have anything to give of yourself if you do not give to yourself first.
It is like being on an airplane, and when the plane is going down, the oxygen masks come down. If there is a child with you or a frail, elderly person, it is best to put the oxygen mask on yourself first and then the child or other person. Because if you don’t, you will probably not be able to help them. Read the rest of this entry »
I’m a perfect ‘five’ on a scale of one to ten… and I love it! When we learn to be a five, we’re relishing the right to be okay, yet not to have to be a perfect ten. We would all like to be absolutely perfect. Yet, no one is. We would like our heroes, our crushes, our partners to be ‘the one’ by fulfilling all our needs, but we forget that in order for that to be, we too have to be a perfect ‘ten.’ Still, and perhaps, sadly, no one is.
The worst part is, when our beloved tries to change, we often doubt them. We wonder why he said this, or why he didn’t do that, because he always did before! We shouldn’t ask for changes if we don’t really want them. Changes hurt, just as pulling the splinter out sometimes hurts. It causes us to bleed, but in order to heal, the splinter has to come out.

Karma is a tricky word to define. And no, it doesn’t mean ‘revenge’ or ‘payback!’ In the simplest sense, karma is energy. We get back what we put forth. Or, to paraphrase Mahatma Gandhi, we become the product of our thoughts. And, like other forces at work in the Universe, karma follows a set of basic laws:
Great Law – We reap what we sow, every cause is related to an equal cause.
Law of Creation – Our intentions and desires are related. In other words, God helps those who help themselves.
Law of Humility – It is what it is. We must first address the root of our issues and accept things at face value, before we begin to change. Read the rest of this entry »
