The sacrament of baptism is a Christian ceremony of washing away ‘original sin.’ Most Christian religions believe that every soul is born into the world with such sin. It is believed that baptism must be performed, and if it is not done, and the person dies, then the spirit of that individual will go to a place called Limbo, which is described as the upper region of the state of Hell. Personally I do not buy this.
I believe very much in the Christ Spirit. He is very much alive and well, working on this planet we call Earth. I think that the Christian religion was meant to be a good thing in this world. It is good for family values, and gives children a good structure, and a sense of right and wrong. It is meant to bring a message of peace, hope and unconditional love to humanity. But I don’t feel that anyone has the right to condemn an infant to Limbo, just because his family didn’t make it to baptism yet. Read the rest of this entry »
“They don’t listen to anything I say,” are words we often hear. People long to be acknowledged, and from my experience this is something people in many parts of the world are missing, as we all rush from place to place. The inhabitants of a modern day home tend to become like passing ships in the night to their loved ones, and hardly communicate with one another.
Really listening to another goes straight to the heart. It opens the empath and the medical intuitive’s eyes to that which any X-ray or computerized tomography (CT) scan cannot. Active listening is the most powerful catalyst for change in any healing therapy. Read the rest of this entry »
You have the opportunity, the choice to begin anew in each moment of your experience. Take a nice deep breath into that idea, that concept. Feel yourself rejoicing, rejoicing as you imagine as you feel and witness a beautiful cleansing occurring throughout your entire soul, your entire being.
Again, breath in deeply and exhale completely. Breathing in a fresh start and exhaling old baggage. Breathing in renewal, exhaling pain. And now simply allow yourself to embrace new beginnings, fresh starts, opening, opening, opening and allowing yourself to go deeper into this beautiful connection with your soul.
Your soul is pure love. Draw from the strength of your soul, all that you need. Your soul is never empty. It is always full. Full of love, full of light, full of blessings. Read the rest of this entry »
Ah, forgiveness! Such a misunderstood word. Many people assume that, although it sounds noble to forgive someone, forgiveness is often impossible. They feel that certain sins are so severe that the transgressor doesn’t deserve any forgiveness at all.
Also, there is a pervasive feeling that if you forgive someone, you are somehow excusing their infractions. Do not be confused. Whether you are forgiving someone who has hurt your feelings, stolen from you or caused you bodily harm, the reasoning is the same.
You are not letting the transgressor off the hook, or turning a blind eye to the wrong that was done to you. You are not condoning said transgression or justifying it in any way. Nor are you giving the wrong-doer a free pass to re-offend, or making an exception for him or her. Read the rest of this entry »
Charity does begin at home. Whether you think of charity as alms for the impoverished, or kindness to strangers, or perhaps non-judgment in times of questionable behavior by others, it is still imperative to look within first. Before you can be truly charitable to others, it is important to be kind to yourself first. Ultimately, you cannot give to others freely and easily that which you do not give to yourself.
You are a loving and giving being. However, sometimes you are your own worst critic and have nothing but fault to find when you come up short regarding lofty expectations of yourself.
Sometimes you have set this bar so high that you are incapable of reaching the goals within your estimated timeline. Sometimes life intervenes in your best laid plans and deadlines are missed. Sometimes you self-sabotage from fear of success, or failure. Each of these instances can cause undue stress, which is not only harmful to you, but also to the people in your circle.

Firstly, to attain lasting fulfillment it is necessary to actually live your life. This is especially important for anyone who feels stuck in their life or circumstances. I sometimes come across clients that are so bound by their routines that they are unwilling to see a different way.
To have a fulfilling life we must be willing to engage with life in a dynamic way. Take a proactive approach and shedding some of your routines. There are often very simple ways to engage in shifting stagnant routines. It can be as simple as taking the long way to or from work and appreciating the scenery of the new way.

Angels are here to support, guide and comfort us in our daily lives, not to live our lives for us, or make decisions on our behalf. We grow in strength, wisdom, character and self-esteem when we face and overcome challenges.
There are of course many stories of angels intervening in life-threatening situations, which is wonderful. This phenomenon has been well-documented.
Over the years, I have seen time and time again that some of the key primary purposes of the angels in our lives is to remind and reinforce for us that we:
- are not alone;
- we can and will overcome the challenge that is in front of us at the moment;
- we can link back into the best part of our hearts, which is where our true strength lies. It is that part of us which they hold sacred for us.
You are enough. If only, as we grew up, we had heard more such words, even if there was an additional “… and yet strive for more”. The fact is we were raised in a world where competition is prevalent; where our insecurities are often emphasized to us, or used as leverage (intentionally or otherwise); where our personal beliefs about ourselves potentially delays our soul evolution.
As partners in the Universe we say to ourselves, “Everything has a reason, we each have a soul purpose, all is in Divine Order.” Yet, when a tragedy or life shattering moment hits, we are so intimately impacted that we have to dig deep to console ourselves and try to reframe that that tragedy has a Divine purpose, and that you have enough and are enough in that moment.
