We Are In The World, But Not Of It!

click for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comNone of us want to be here. In the midst of all the possible effectual luring, substantiated commitments, and convincing amicable distractions, we still exist as unsettled, dissatisfied manifestations of deeply unresolved confusion.

We awake in continued perplexity and sleep in shrouded mystery. No matter how much we pursue avenues of supposedly purposeful, meaningful, productive, and prolific highways of verifiable efficiency, we remain discontent. Why? Because we inherently know that none of it really makes one bit of difference…and much less sense.

We try to say that it does, go to great lengths to make ourselves believe that it does…even to the point of creating all sorts of beheading scenarios of compelling, persuasive emotional intellectual arguments to prove it does, when it fact, the inescapable truth stands while the rest falls away. We are not the least bit interested in being here, on this planet, alive, taking up space, breathing.

We realize with full certainty that it’s either a harsh cruel joke on the part of the Divine Creator, for our being born simply to die; or that in order to get through it, we had better invent every possible employing situation as an ever evolving, turbulent, unsuspecting state of affairs to engage our minds, implode our hearts, and invest our bodies…while through these ineffectual, purposeless actions, our precious ruthless soul stimulates us to go on. Bottom line: she must be entertained while the band plays on.

The Secret Stepping Stone Towards Positivity

click here for a free psychic reading right now at PsychicAccess.comI used to have a sign on my desk at work that said, “No negativity!” I found that most of my co-workers responded well to this message. The majority of my interactions, even the challenging ones, were pleasant.

Naturally, there were inevitably a few contrary folks who would see my sign and say smugly, “Isn’t no negativity a negative message?” To which I would smile and respond, “Two negatives equal a positive.”

Sometimes, people would approach me and say, “I respect your sign, but I’m just not feeling positive today.” I would then do my best to be sympathetic. “It’s okay,” I would say, “I’m not asking you to be positive. I’m just asking for you to not be negative.” I would then try to remind them that most things are not simply black or white.

People typically only think in terms of positive and negative, and completely forget about the third option, namely neutral. There is no need to fake being happy when you are not. But there is also no need to choose the opposite reaction, by jumping into the arms of misery or gloom.

No matter how naturally positive or optimistic a person may be, there will always be times in everyone’s life, when they just aren’t feeling upbeat or enthusiastic. Telling them someone to “think positive” or “just smile” doesn’t really help in those moments. In fact, it can make a person even more upset or frustrated, because it seems like other people don’t realize the extent of their pain. It can also make a person feel depressed or guilty about even having natural human emotions.

Self-Care Life Hacks For Empaths

click here for a free psychic reading right now at PsychicAccess.comAs we go about our everyday life, enjoying or loathing our experiences, we are always surrounded by an entire realm of energetic interactions. These subtle energies are not easily palpable, and cannot be perceived by the regular senses.

For example, many people have experienced a fleeting feeling that some presence was in a room with them, when no one was actually present. Similarly, most people, even when blindfolded, can sense a person standing next to them. Or sometimes, when we buy a home or car, for example, we become aware that something ‘feels off’ about it, but we just cannot quite put our finger on it.

In such cases we are perceiving energy with our so-called ‘sixth sense.’ We cannot physically see, smell, hear, taste or feel the energy, but we ‘sense’ it intuitively. It is also known as clairsentience or extra-sensory perception, which is perception beyond the five normal senses.

Every person perceives energy in this way, however, some people are naturally more sensitive to it. The spiritual or metaphysical community uses different terms for such individuals, including psychic, intuitive, sensitive or empath. The empath is a sensitive person who specifically has a higher level of awareness of other people’s feelings and emotions.

Empaths are often judged from a young age as being ‘too sensitive or ‘overly emotional’ by family members or care-givers. Sadly, this often promotes the false belief that emotional sensitivity is somehow a ‘weakness,’ or the opposite of inner strength, self-confidence, or even intelligence.

Feasting At The Relationship Banquet

click here for a free psychic reading right now at PsychicAccess.comRelationships, relationships, relationships. It’s all about coming to terms with our salivated, gluttony-induced emotional relationships. The undeniable fact that we are ravenously grievous in our pursuit of sexual gratification, romantic adoration, harmonic communication, instantaneous accumulation, and committed accommodation goes without saying.

Deep down, at the esoteric-psychological level, we are in pursuit of what we think we ‘lack.’ We are, no doubt, over-gorged with incessant thoughts, desires, needs and actions flooding our insatiable sensual appetites, while demanding fulfillment – which is not a bad thing, unless we deny it.

We are far too consumed with the ideals in our partners, which are supposed to matter, but don’t. Why are we so driven to have the ‘perfect relationship?’ Because we want to be constantly entertained and conveniently distracted.

If we were willing to let one sliver of truth into the current involvement, we may find that what we don’t have it too bad, after all. When we fixate upon the notion that our involvements are substandard and unfulfilling, the real culprit may, in fact, not be the other, at all, but actually ourselves.

What do we imagine our partners are supposed to do for us, really? Make us happy, pleased, and giddy, while showering us with undulating pleasure, by performing a miraculous vein flushing of ‘feel good’ endorphins whenever they come into our presence? What a heavy unnecessary burden to place upon another!

Love, Joy And Happiness After Years Of Hardship

click here for a free psychic reading right now at PsychicAccess.comI have a client who used to be extremely depressed. I recommend she speak to a therapist or counselor instead, because I felt that is exactly what she needed at the time. She had been harboring a lot of bitterness, grief, sadness, anger and other toxic negative emotions for a very long time. She needed professional help that I felt was beyond my scope of expertise.

So, she found a therapist and went for counseling, but months later she told me that the only thing she felt she accomplished was her spending thousands of dollars on help she never really received. She had still found no relief from her deep distress.

She had been bitter for a long time. While raising her children and attending church, her husband would cheat on her. She also worked the entire time the children were young, until they graduated. Meanwhile, he would leave on ‘business trips’ to go and gamble away their hard-earned livelihood, and spend time with other women. Then one day, he met someone he wanted to marry. So, they divorced and he moved far away to be with his new wife. He was a narcissist.

Her sadness and grief was also due to the loss of her mother, whom she had taken care of for 20 years after her father passed. She sacrificed a lot to dedicate herself to serving her mother’s needs. During this time she had no notion of self-care. She suffered on all levels: emotionally, physically, spiritually. She even gave up going to church. She was slowly dying inside and didn’t even know who she was anymore.

Extend Yourself The Grace Of Forgiveness

click here for a free psychic reading a PsychicAccess.comIf you are an empath you may believe that forgiveness should be easy for you, or at least easier than it is for others. But I’ve spoken to many empaths and highly sensitive people over the years who all struggle with forgiveness.

One of the main issues with forgiveness for the empath is that we feel another’s emotions intensely, literally as our own. This muddies the waters considerably, because it tends to blur boundaries. Blurred boundaries can often lead to a closed mouth for an empath. Why? Because it is difficult for us, especially in childhood or in romantic relationships, to know where we end and another begins.

It is easy for others to manipulate appropriate boundaries with an empath, or to erase them altogether. All the empath knows is that there is pain, sadness, a sense of frustration, or anger.  If you are an empath, then the question becomes are you angry with them, or yourself? Should you have been able to foresee the catastrophe happening, the relationship ending, job imploding, and so on. This leads to self-doubt and the rehashing of incidents that occurred years ago…with no resolution.

In the meantime, every time an empath thinks about the situation, past or present, we feel it…and the cycle continues.

Yes, you are empathic, intuitive, even psychic, but that does not make you immune to being human, neither does it make you all-knowing or all-seeing, especially when it comes to your own life, childhood or relationships.

‘Decoration Day’ At The Old Home Place

click here for a free psychic reading a PsychicAccess.comMemorial Day, which we referred to as ‘Decoration Day’ in my family, is full of precious childhood memories and nostalgia for me. My folks were of Southern heritage mostly, although I grew up in Oklahoma. We lived in the country, on an acreage we called ‘The Old Home Place,’ because it had been handed down for generations.

We had big ole vegetable gardens. In fact, we called one of them a ‘truck patch,’ because it was so large. Soul food, ya know. Nothing better! The truck patch covered five acres. A truck patch is when so many vegetables are produced, there’s enough to truck them out commercially, although we never did. We gave all our friends and relatives what we couldn’t preserve (can) and store in the cellar. In those days we all shared whatever we had.

We also had a small vegetable garden right behind our house, for every day fresh veggies, such as beds of lettuce. In front, we had a potato patch. In other areas there were blackberry bushes, a pecan orchard, a fruit orchard, plums, blueberries, and so on. We were pretty much self-sustaining.

All of the vegetable gardens were plowed by hand with mules, in rows for planting. I used to help with the planting and canning when I was just a little girl. We also butchered our own chickens, pigs and cattle, and made lye soap in a big ole iron pot outside on a wooden fire…all in the old ways. I don’t miss butchering the critters and to this day, I can’t eat animal flesh, except for fish and seafood.
