The Divine Mysteries Of Competence And Confidence

Click Here NOW For A FREE Psychic Reading at PsychicAccess.comHow do we hone a certain ability enough to be competent and confident with the knowledge gained, developed and demonstrated, without having to continually prove our ‘worth and merit’? And, should we feel the need to prove our expertise in any area of life, are we not placed in a defensive position, whereby the competence is then easily questioned and the confidence doubted?

Some may argue that confidence is an inborn trait and can not necessarily be developed by perfecting a certain craft, skill, talent or gift. But, those who takes this position often have not done their own homework in establishing, cultivating and maintaining their own expanded potential.

Competence comes through repetitious practice, until the act is perfected. Then, confidence rides piggy back on this polished competence. We no longer need to think about what is being achieved. Yes, too much thinking interferes with our competence, and therefore inhibits confidence.

In order to learn to ride a bicycle with ease, one must practice. You must also fall a few times, and learn to work with the Law of Gravity, until balance is more consistently maintained. But, even then, the magical fun of riding a bike instinctively happens of its own accord, without the rational interference or assistance of the rider. Once accomplished, no one can unlearn it.

Learning to play the guitar is achieved the same way. And one will have to practice a lot, sometimes with calloused, bruised fingers, for many tedious, seemingly ‘non-productive’ hours, to become even a mediocre musician. Ask any accomplished musician. Continue reading

From Believing To Knowing

Click Here to get a FREE psychic reading right now at PsychicAccess.com“I wish I believed in the spirit world like you do,” my best friend commented many years ago. I then told her that it wasn’t so much a case of believing, but more of a matter of knowing.

Last week, a new friend asked me to teach him how to have this ‘knowing’ that I have. But I really have no idea how to do that? I never experienced a transition from believing to knowing. The ‘knowing’ has always just been there.

I have always felt that the spirit realm is our true connection to home. As the years passed, I began more and more to view planet Earth as our schoolroom. And boy can we get some lessons while we are here!

When I think back, I have recollections of spirit activity around me from when I was about five or six years old. My parents and I were living in Ottawa, Canada, at the time, where my dad had recently been employed. We were temporarily living in a creepy rental home, until my father found his feet and we would be able to move to a house with better vibes.

I recall seeing and hearing shadow beings in the hallway of that eerie house in Ottawa, and I remember telling my mother about the paranormal activity I sensed there. But she thought I was just imagining things, or seeking attention. I also recall lying in bed, scared, listening to what sounded like chattering voices. The energy in that old place wasn’t malevolent, but it didn’t feel benevolent either.

The most profound experience occurred when I was just nine years old. We had moved back to the United Kingdom and were visiting family friends. They were hosting a party, and the kids were sent off to bed, while the adults carried on with their social event below.

Now Is The Time To Invest In Yourself

Click Here for a FREE psychic reading right now at PsychicAccess.comThroughout our childhood, we receive advice from family and teachers on how we should succeed in life. Study hard. Get good grades. Go to college for a quality career. Get married and have a family. Buy the dream home. Financial success and prosperity. Provide for your family. Send your kids to college. Become proud grandparents.

In reality, our real life experiences can throw us major curve balls, and impact what we envision as our dream future. In the same vein, life experiences create magnificent opportunities. Well-meaning guidance and suggestions from family and friends is beneficial. It is to be part of our consideration. It can give us goals, and affirm what we know about ourselves.

Careers can include being of service. A social worker, doctor, nurse, lawyer, first-responder, accountant, veterinarian, military, waitperson. A career in science. A researcher, chemist, biologist, architect, engineering. A career in entertainment. An artist, musician, dancer, playwright, author, actor, composer.

The career you choose is, however, to be one that nurture’s your heart as a priority. It should give you a feeling of passion and purpose, rather than financial security. Financial security is a goal one needs to have a degree of focus upon. We do need money to pay our bills, to support our family and lifestyle, to finance our dreams. Money being ‘the root of all evil’ is a fallacy. Money is a form of energy exchange. It has no judgment. It can influence or impede financial security. It is what you do with it that matters. But financial security is often temporary and based on your decisions and emotions.

Enter into your career choice with enthusiasm, passion, and a zest for knowledge. It may turn out that your career changes as you grow older. Jobs will definitely change through the years. You may be an individual who says, “Money does not matter or drive me.” This is a learned, mental paradigm picked up from your upbringing and childhood environment. Change it. Start thinking of how you can use financial security to benefit others.

Competence And Confidence

Click Here for a FREE psychic reading right now at PsychicAccess.comCompetence and confidence…how are they related? Or, are they? If we consider ourselves to be competent, does this so-called confidence arise naturally from the specified experience of validated competence? Or does the experience associated with confidence ‘stay on the surface’ of things? And does it then have to be renewed over and over, to continually prove the level of expertise, once the particular hailed experiment, or event, or situation is over?

In other words, how do we hone a certain skills or ability enough to be competent and confident with the knowledge gained, developed and demonstrated, without having to repeatedly ‘prove’ our worth and merit? And, should we feel the need to prove our expertise in any area of life, are we not placed in a defensive position, whereby our competence is questioned and our confidence doubted?

Some may argue that confidence is an inborn trait and can not necessarily be developed by perfecting a certain craft, skill, talent or gift. But, whoever would take this position, has not done their homework in actuality to establish, cultivate and maintain expanded potential.

Competence comes through repetitious practice, until the act is perfected. Then, confidence rides piggy back on the polished competence, from the very fact that one does not have to ‘think’ about what is being achieved. Yes, thinking interferes with the competence, and therefore inhibits confidence.

In order, to learn to ride a bicycle with ease, one must practice, fall repeatedly and work with the laws of gravity until balance is preserved. But, even then, the magic of riding a bike happens of its own accord without the aid, interference or assistance of the rider. Once accomplished, no one can unlearn.

The Truth About Being Spiritual

Click Here for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comWhat has drawn you to spirituality? For some people it is just a source of fun, something to do over lunch. The New Age industry also offers so many cool things to buy and wear, and great retreats and seminars to attend. These are certainly much better recreational pursuits than drinking in a bar, and not everyone finds enjoyment in sports.

For others it has become a substitute church or religious community for those dissatisfied with dogmatic Christianity and other organized religions. It satisfies their longing for social interaction and having some contact with like-minded folks.

Others pursue what they consider a ‘spiritual path’ because they think it will make them a ‘better person,’ or offer them a cool new career, or because they dislike themselves and think (or hope) that by acting like a ‘good person’ they will somehow be rewarded and accepted. Due to low self-esteem they hope they might win the attention, good graces, or ‘love’ of some spiritual guru or deity, which will hopefully  make them feel better about themselves.

If you resonate with any of the above motivations for your spiritual pursuits, then this article is not for you.

First off, everyone is spiritual. Why, because they are alive, living a life as a human. All souls designed their lives in the state of their higher self, working with their spiritual guides before they incarnated. However, not every soul incarnates to become awakened. Each life teaches us, and is part of our soul evolution journey.

Is Your ‘Soulmate’ A Narcissistic Predator?

Click Here for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comHe must be your soulmate, or twin flame, because he knows you so well. He has taught you so many things about yourself. Surely, this means he is ‘the one.’ I don’t think so. You might want to say something like this regarding your therapist, teacher or healer, but even then I would still be careful.

If you are constantly looking for someone to ‘get’ you, or yearning to be understood on a ‘deeper level,’ you might as well have a target on your back that says: prey. If you are so wounded and empty that you need to be constantly affirmed by another, then you need some serious healing, prolonged growth work on your Self, your inner child and your relationship with your Higher Self and Source.

Even when working with a spiritual teacher or healer, if they are doing most of the work for you, telling you all about your Self, then they are merely telling you a narrative, a story. Stories don’t solve problems, or heal. Information or data does not heal. It can point you in the right direction, but ultimately information does not heal, action does.

So if your healer, teacher, therapist or counselor is telling you all about your Self and that is all they are doing, you might want to reconsider. Reevaluate how much help you are actually getting. It is only a mental boost to receive this kind of information. In other words, your brain feels temporarily happy with the excitement of words. But it is ‘drug’ that will wear off quickly. Soon, you will then trotting off in search of another high.

The Power Of Your Totems

CLICK HERE for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comThose of us who are metaphysically inclined often believe in the power of carrying a sacred object, symbolic item, or ‘totem.’ The totem is worn or kept on one’s person for various purposes, including healing, protection, guidance, or support.

This spiritual practice is known as Totemism. It is a system of belief in which humans are said to have a mystical relationship or kinship with a spirit-being, such as an animal, plant or symbolic object.

Believing in the power of a ‘totem helper’ gives one the kind of spiritual self-confidence that can make the difference between success and failure. Actually, I wear on my person a medicine bag in the Native American tradition, which contains various totems or ‘alliances’ I have found in nature.

Some of them were gifted to me, because they resonated with my energetic frequency and “wanted to be with me,” as friends and fellow metaphysicians have stated through the years. It is our custom to save special things of this nature for gifting to each other, especially at sacred times of the year, such as when we celebrate the solstices.

Right now, I am surrounded by all of these charming personal offerings. There are the great horned owl feathers that were gifted to me, for example. I used it to make a prayer stick, that I now make use of during meditation, and sometimes also as an altar piece. In the tradition of Totemism, I consider it to be part of a living being, which is the altar. Indeed, every altar has its own ‘being-ness,’ the same as any other sacred deity.
