This morning, I ran into one of my friends in our little Spanish town, and we decided to grab a coffee and catch up. I was delighted at how she took an interest in my Om/Aum pendant. She commented on how I seemed to treat my pendant as something rather sacred, and with respect – an interesting observation! She loved the flow of the shapes, and asked if the pendant had any specific meaning.
I had to remove the pendant and study it closely to try and remember what I was taught years ago, in order to give her a brief description to the best of my ability. One by one I tried to connect with each swirl in the design and was surprised that I had remembered quite a lot of what my mentor had taught me. It was a long time ago, when we used the Om/Aum chant in our meditation sessions.
With my pendant on the table I began to explain the meaning of the dot at the top of the symbol, and recalled that this related to the silence after chanting Om/Aum. It represents the Enlightened Self, and is known as the transcendental state of Turiya. Read the rest of this entry »
I thought today of how certain expressions tend to stick in our minds; thoughts which we adopt for a while, or even a lifetime. It can be the words of a famous writer we have read somewhere, an expression in a song, or even just the ideas of somebody we just had a brief conversation with.
Internationally renowned author and speaker, Wayne Dyer, once said, “You will never get everything done.” It’s a good feeling at the end of the day, to know that we’ve gotten through much on our ‘to-do list.’ But for me, I also gain some comfort from such as words of wisdom as Wayne Dyer’s, as well as the poem, Desiderata, which advises us to, “Go placidly amid the noise and the haste.” Read the rest of this entry »
Most people who set New Year’s resolutions don’t keep them. Each year we tell ourselves that it’s time to move on, to change, and to leave negative people and influences in the past, and yet we seldom stick to our resolve. Is it possible to finally let go of things that hold us back? Yes, it is!
The first step we can take is to be fully honest about what is holding us back, and why it’s so difficult to let go. This is best done with the help of a mentor, such as a counselor or trusted friend, who will listen objectively. Until we have a true understanding of all our ‘baggage’ and our own part in it, it will never go away.
It is a sad fact that so many people in today’s modern world are unhappy with their lot. However, most of us allow this to happen quite easily, because we have responsibilities, bills to pay, and so forth. We tend to just go with whatever life doles out to us and resist the change that leads to living a more passionate life. In fact, sometimes we do not even stop and think as to what our passion might be and, sadly, lead less fulfilling lives as a result. Thankfully, however, this does not have to be the case.
I know that I have fallen into this category of people myself in the past, until I found where my real passion lies, i.e. helping other people by doing psychic readings and offering spiritual support. As a result, I have never been happier and you, dear reader, can do the same. It just depends on where your particular passion lies. Read the rest of this entry »
From the very start of my spiritual career, my guides taught me that in life we are given three things: opportunity, choice and free will. Simply put, when we make our choice from the options put to us, we exercise our right to free will and determine our futures, largely, ourselves.
While for most of us this is quite an empowering thought, there are times in our lives when spirit feels that we are very much on the wrong path and therefore will actually change our circumstances for us. True, this does not happen very often, but I will use my own situation as an example of why they sometimes actually do interfere with our free will. Read the rest of this entry »
In the indigenous culture’s tradition, in order for balance to be achieved, one must consider all levels of being a human: the physical, emotional, mental, psychic, spiritual, soul and essence. Each spoke on a medicine wheel relates to one of these districts.
Every incarnation is a balancing ritual which is the purpose for that particular reincarnation. In each lifetime, we may achieve progress in one or more of these areas until, finally, after many incarnations, all the spokes are complete – all the way from the inner hub to the outer rim. At that point, we have completed our mission in the many incarnations in the myriad schoolrooms, and have arrived at ascended mastery. Read the rest of this entry »
What’s the difference between courageous people and weak people? Weak people allow their fear to hold them back or keep them frozen where they are at. Courageous people embrace their fear and keep moving forward.
What is holding you back from fulfilling your divine life purpose? Once you can specifically identify what it is that’s preventing you from taking action you can begin to dismantle the false belief system, heal, and move forward. For example, if someone in your life tells you your idea will never work it is often out of their own fear, than their disbelief in your dream. My husband told me no when I wanted to leave my career as a schoolteacher to pursue my dream of owning my own business. He had a million reasons why the whole thing was a bad idea and I have to admit he was pretty convincing, but I knew I had to do this. Read the rest of this entry »
Some refer to this as the ‘vibes’ we get from people, animals, places or things. Have you ever walked into a house and gotten great vibes, or maybe not such great vibes?
The concept of energy forms an integral part of our daily lives. We speak of the energy of dancers, athletes, supernova, and electricity. We soak up the Sun’s rays and it gives us energy. Deepak Chopra talks about it. We use energy to work, relax, cook and travel.
We can’t see energy but we can feel it on both conscious and subconscious levels, including psychically. We can see the amazing effects of it. We can see spaceships launch, lights go on, the effects of our investment in time and energy to get things done, and the lack of it when we’re feeling confused, depressed or under the weather.
