Spirituality and religion are often clumped together into the same category. They are certainly similar in nature. For example, a spiritual person can be religious and their religion can intensify their spirituality, but that is not to say religion is the source of spiritual growth.
Religion, however is birthed out of spiritual experiences. Religious practices are often promoted by a specific teacher who has had a profound spiritual experience, or a prophet who communicates information about the spiritual realm, and how it influences the physical world.

Every psychic has told a client something that has made the client doubt the psychic’s ability, and perhaps even sanity. I remember predicting that a high school friend was going to lose something valuable to him, and shortly after he would get into a car accident. I told him I knew he wasn’t using a seat belt and the loss of the something valuable would be the universe’s warning to start doing so. He looked at me like I was crazy.
A few months later he told me he lost his wallet, and he remembered what I said and it scared him enough to start using his seat belt. A few days later he and friend went over a cliff in his car. The police officer told him that he would have died, had he not been wearing his seat belt. Read the rest of this entry »
Everyone dreams. Whether it is a daydream, meditative dream or when you’re sleeping, we dream all the time. Many dreams carry symbolic energy within them, often containing spiritual messages for the dreamer. Dreams are not always easy to interpret, whenever we manage to remember them, but dream analysis can be developed as a practice. All it takes is some patience and perseverance.
The daydream or ‘awake dream’ is simply those things that you envision for your life. You may dream of a life partner, family, new house, vacation, new car, promotion at work, and so forth. Awake dreams are important, as they are a way to bring your true heart’s desires to the surface. Read the rest of this entry »
Courage is a choice. It is available to all of us, not just a select few. Courage begins with the desire to want something different in your life, something more. Courage often comes when we get tired of being beaten down and are ready to rise up and claim the powerful being that you are.
In every moment you have the right, the power, the choice to be courageous, or weak. Sometimes courage is not bold, or loud, or executable. Sometimes courage is quiet, and graceful, and still. Courage is not always the bull in the China shop, but the mouse in the corner watching and waiting. Courage comes in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes it’s a word, a look, or the way you hold yourself. Sometimes it is the unspoken words, or the action left undone. It is easy to let ego overpower you and run rampant with your words and actions. It takes courage and grace to pause, and take a deep breath, and then proceed with thought and loving intention. Read the rest of this entry »
Continued from Supported By Spirit – Part 3.
At last, after another three months of recuperation, I was discharged from the nursing home. After more than five weeks in two hospitals located a thousand kilometers apart, followed by 90 days in convalescent care, I had no idea that the really hard work was just about to begin.
I was sent to see different surgeons for each of the injuries; shoulder, wrist, knee and foot. The severe whiplash was discovered by my chiropractor and she worked diligently for months to realign my neck and spine.
Soon, the plan was decided. Four days per week, I went to physiotherapy via taxi. It took three painful hours to get ready to go out each day and then I spent two hours in the gym, working as hard as I could to re-build muscle and regain my strength. Read the rest of this entry »
Many years ago a friend of mine told me simply to choose happiness. I was thoroughly frustrated with that statement, as there was so much opposition in my life. Like most people, I have had struggles that lasted not only months, but decades. I faced adversity not only once or twice, but repeatedly. I also had to manage all these challenges on my own, due to traveling on my own, starting my own businesses, and surviving immense loss, among other things.
At the time my well-meaning friend had simply not experienced any of these life challenges to the same degree, thus I did not believe her. To make the choice to feel joy seemed resolutely trite, in the face of such constant, episodic misfortune!
In truth, she was not too far off in that statement. Except, it was not a conscious choice, or something of cultish free will. It was more of an attitude that came over me after repeated misfortune, which led to a toughening up, a new approach, a singular mindset, a resolute focus. Read the rest of this entry »
As we wander through life, we often face many roadblocks, many stumbling blocks and many disappointments. There are many questions that arise as we walk our path and at times it feels like the entire world is against us, as we progress on our journey.
Many people blame God, Spirit, the Universe, or other people for the situations they are in, and cannot get past. This simply an illusion that we create in our humanness. Spirit does not want us to fail in life. Spirit does not want us to be unhappy. Spirit does not want us to live a pauper’s life.
It is time to sit down, take a look at all what has happened to you and discover two things about each situation. Why did it happen, and what was the lesson you learned from it? As you look at the examples of pain, suffering or disappointment in your life, what do you see? Were they life lessons from Spirit? Read the rest of this entry »
Labradorite is my favorite stone. It is powerful and beautiful. We can look toward Labradorite when we need a powerful protector. It creates a shielding force through the aura and it strengthens natural energies.
Labradorite protects against negativity and gives safe exploration into alternate levels of consciousness. Labradorite can also help with visionary experiences from our past or future. Wearing or carrying Labradorite helps facilitate one’s magical powers. It helps the mental and intuitive capabilities of clairvoyance and telepathy. It also helps us to communicate with Spirit Guides and to access the Akashic Record. Labradorite also helps us do psychic readings and remember past lives. Read the rest of this entry »
