Throughout my life the majority of my spiritual and mystical training is from the Christian faith. I was raised in a very strict evangelical family that held a literalist interpretation of the Bible. I now come to the belief that literalism, holding the Bible as the ultimate truth of God, is actually the opposite of its intention.
If the Bible is the source of all knowledge and understanding, it then becomes God for us. It takes on a transcendent nature, answering any question that life has to offer. Becoming not just a method to point the way to God, but rather God itself. The Bible then becomes an idol for its readers. Idolatry is anything that is held above the ultimate reality and connection with the Holy Spirit. However, this does not mean that the Bible is innately bad. It can be a valuable tool that can point us in the right direction, as long as we view it as such. It is a tool or method that can promote a greater understanding and experience of that higher reality, the limitless love of God. Read the rest of this entry »
Over the last couple of years, I have noticed a lot of change in our world at a speedy rate. We are rapidly ascending to a higher dimension. And his wave that we are riding, though difficult at times, is carrying us to a better place – a place of more wonderment and joy than we have ever known.
This transformation that the spiritually aware are going through can be very trying at times, but we must keep moving forward with positive momentum. We must be very clear and specific with our goals and always keep an open mind. Let all the good information in and clear the bad, as it does not serve us well. Read the rest of this entry »
In Beyond the Postmodern Mind, Huston Smith writes that “Rationalism and Newtonian science has lured us into dark woods, but a new metaphysics can rescue us”. Mankind will never give up its quest to find spiritual meaning and purpose in this world. This quest is what has been driving both science and religion for centuries.
The Buddha said, “The teacher appears when the student is ready.” The same principle applies to the human species as a collective. We have been exposed to new esoteric and scientific insights as we evolved – always when the time was right and the world was ready. Prominent religions all over the world were all founded on esoteric guidance and metaphysical wisdom delivered at various times throughout history by great teachers and prophetic messengers. But as time passed and these religions expanded, they were often contaminated by human bureaucracy, superstition, doctrine and dogma, which distorted the original teachings.

Concepts of the Divine, with an ever-changing definition, have been part of the human experience since the beginning of time. Most of the world’s people throughout history continue to recognize a place for divinity in life.
Our spiritual journey, throughout the ages, has been steeped in mystery and often, superstition and dogma. Organized religions have historically attempted to answer deep questions, and have sometimes provided comfort and solace to people during times of upheaval.
However, the most important questions have been left unanswered. For example, we know precious little about ancient, prehistoric cultures that worshiped the Sacred Feminine. Earliest recorded myths and legends have been lost or destroyed, and most stories that remain portray not only a divine battle of the sexes, but a difficult, contentious relationship between the divine and human beings.

I have been pondering the idea of why during times of stress people emulate each other more. In context of historical or world proportions, what keeps us from being tossed into the fray of the masses to experience all their ideals, emotions and feelings at once, and what keeps us selective when under stress?
As a psychic empath, the most vital tool is still in trying to be selective in understanding ideas, mass media, ideologies and the emotions that drive them. It is vital to acquire self-esteem away from these masses to individuate, and that often is a lonely path. This is the most difficult, but the most honorable part of being a success: to distinguish oneself from the ideal – the team ideal – and to continue to invent. Read the rest of this entry »
Many years ago I read a story about the Nazi’s experimenting on prisoners of war. One story involved an experiment with two men who were strapped to tables and blindfolded. A researcher slit their wrists and they would bleed out, wanting to know who would bleed out the fastest. At least that is what the prisoners were told.
It was a horrible experiment with shocking results. One man’s wrist was slashed, the other had a piece of ice slashed across his arm that did not break the skin. Both men could hear the blood pouring into a bucket on the floor beside them. The Nazi’s poured water into his skin to give the sensation of bleeding. Incredibly, this poor soul died too! Why? Because he thought and believed he was bleeding. Read the rest of this entry »
In upcoming interviews on The Psychic Viewpoint, on Psychic Access Talk Radio, I will be interviewing several persons that have had experiences with aliens, or who have been contacted by aliens or extraterrestrials (ET’s).
Many of these experiences are accounts of events that have occurred in remote areas, probably so as to not frighten the angst ridden human populous. But many live to tell a good story on how they were first contacted by ET’s and how their lives evolved from these experiences.
According to many of these contactees, including scientists, engineers and government employees, there is also possibly some form of psychic contact with aliens connected to these encounters. This can come in the form of dreams, or occasionally some visions these people may have after the experience, though many of the contactees would be diagnosed as “mentally ill” claiming such communication.

Many self-help gurus will espouse the virtues, the sheer righteousness if you will, of deserving to be happy. You deserve to be happy? What does this truly even mean? (meant to be read in a most sarcastic tone of voice with a slight touch of incredulity thrown in for good measure).
I take umbrage, I cry foul to this so called deservedness. What makes you so special? For that matter, what makes me so special? None of us deserve to be happy any more so than the next guy or girl.
People, living breathing people, are being subjected to atrocities all over our planet in ways that some of us cannot even bear to think about, because we’d never sleep cozy in our beds at night if we did. Aren’t these people deserving of this ‘happiness’ also? They often times don’t experience it, because of someone else’s pursuit of happiness. Read the rest of this entry »
