I awoke this morning remembering a dream that felt so real. Dreams are so mysterious. Like the deep sea, there is much uncharted territory in the dream realm. My dreams are special to me and I try to listen to their messages.
I’m not alone in my fascination with the dream state – nearly every culture throughout history has valued the wisdom and spiritual depth contained in dreams. Native Americans saw dreams as another form of reality and a doorway to spiritual awareness. They valued the messages dreams conveyed and saw them as guides for the living. Many cultures have tried to interpret the important messages dreams communicate about our lives and some cultures traditionally perform sacred rituals to elicit dreams. Read the rest of this entry »
Many people believe that we come onto the planet at a particular time and arrive at a particular place of our own choosing. There are diverse theories as to the accuracy of this idea, but let us pretend for a minute that it is a spiritual truth. Would it not then follow that we also choose when we will leave this earthly plane and where we will leave it from?
If this is the case, would we not also know when we are preparing to leave? Do we know before our own moment arrives? We may have a loved one be away on a trip when a fatal accident occurs. That would certainly prevent us from having the opportunity of saying our final goodbye. Others might have a long lingering illness before finally succumbing, but at least those remaining behind could endeavor to prepare for the grieving process that inevitably will ensue.

There are many people who want to be exceptional in every aspect of their lives, but who struggle to muster the courage to see it through. They want a better job, more love, more money, to be physically fit… the list goes on. They feel that they are here to do more and that they can do more. It is like an inner voice that “calls to them” to be more, do more. But often the call is ignored, or feared, due to a lack of courage.
The trouble is that during the formative years of our life someone rolled their eyes when we boldly declared, “I want to go to medical school and find the cure for cancer.” Or, “I want to be an astronaut or Olympic skier.” Our heartfelt declarations were maybe met with someone telling us our ambitions were stupid and annoying, or we were simply ignored.

I have noticed that all of us are unconsciously psychic in our creativity. The dreams and collective nightmares of our society can come out in any way we wish. In fact, doodles are the raw expression of a good idea, and sometimes can show even more detail than you feel you ideated over. A deliberate drawing, a design can even be divinely inspired.
Some of the Remote Viewing exercises that were done by agencies and organizations encourage vagaries – the art produced doesn’t have to be strong, or good, but how would you feel if you could ‘see’ another earth, or mankind in a few hundred years? What if your drawings, doodles and sculptures were a shadow, an imprint, a sign of a world or future to come? Would you draw more? Regard them, study them, they may images of your own futures. Yet, don’t try too hard, as those images do not come true. Do an art study, and you will see what I mean. Read the rest of this entry »
I feel as if I am going through a period in my life where I need to start trusting my own counsel and intuition. If I don’t, what good am I to myself, or anyone else for that matter?
I am also learning not to tell others too much about what is currently going on in my life. Unless I really trust their counsel, or know they have been through something similar, I keep things to myself. Does it mean I care for these individuals any less? Absolutely not. Sometimes I just prefer to enjoy my life and let my world be my own.
There are some choices I have made in my personal life about which some well-meaning friends have voiced their opinion. When I call them out on their opinion, I am met with the response of, “Well Amy, I just don’t want you to get hurt or make a mistake.” Really, I say to myself, who are you to judge me?

Yesterday, my best friend called me. She has been my friend since second grade. Her family moved to our island from the main land during the summer before our second grade year. Like me, she was witty, funny, and full of energy, and we became really good friends. She became the sister I never had.
Unfortunately, although she had always been full of life and fun, she has also always been very stubborn when it came to certain ideas and her belief system. Her family, like mine, was very religious and I was so sure she would end up a nun some day, but she did not. Her heart found love and desires like the majority of us. She married much younger than me, in her late 20’s, and she is still with the same husband today who also is the father of her three beautiful, grown children. Read the rest of this entry »

Many people ask how it is possible to remain positive, fulfilled, and have our needs met during times of crisis, despair, and uneasiness. The answer lies in meditation, creative visualization, belief and the realization that each of us holds power in our inner being to achieve that which we set out to do.
Our lives are not only physical, and emotional, but each of us has a spirit within that can do so much if we allow it to be set free. Sometimes that is not always easy. We, as people, would like to be logical, scientific, have some proof, or have the outcome right away. It is only natural. We are not only brought up this way, taught this way, but also have the brain power to feel a need for logic. Read the rest of this entry »
