Choosing Love And Expecting Miracles

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comI begin each day with the affirmation, “I focus my attention on the love that is around me, and I expect miracles.” After saying this affirmation of faith, I step back and watch the many miracles of the day unfold.

I learned this, and many other spiritual techniques, from the author and speaker, Gabrielle Bernstein. The daily result can be as simple as coming across a favorite book in a second hand shop, knowing it is Universe’s way to tell me that it’s time to read it again… or realizing that I hit every green light on my way home!

When the Universe blesses you with such miracles, big or small, it’s important to say thank you. Your relationship with Universe should always be an ongoing conversation, in the same way you would with a close, loving friend. Connecting with the Universe daily, is the key to receiving these miracles.

If you want to be on a powerful spiritual path, meditation is the best way to get there. Even if you have to start by sitting silently and simply listen to your breathe for a few minutes, you can begin to feel the benefits almost immediately. Continued meditation can lead to amazing miracles in your life, and also offers you less stress, reduced chance of depression, calmer mind, and the ability to have successful relationship.

I argue less with my husband since I started meditating, for example, and our relationship has grown stronger (another miracle). In times of crisis I have also been able to reduce my stress significantly, compared to what it used to be before I chose to meditate (another miracle).

Meditation Is Easier Than You Think!

Click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comNo doubt you’ve heard of the many benefits of meditation, both physical and spiritual. But how does one start a meditation practice? It doesn’t have to be intimidating. According to the Zen master and teacher, Shunryu Suzuki, approaching meditation with a beginner’s mindset is actually ideal.

It’s important to clear up a common misperception about meditation. Meditation is not simply ‘thinking of nothing.’ Rather it is a spiritual process in which we learn to center, breathe, and achieve clarity.

Meditation is practiced by cultures all over the world and does not have to be associated with a specific spiritual tradition or religious belief system. It also does not have to involve sitting passively with a ‘blank mind.’ Rather it can be anything from coloring mandalas, to a walking in nature.

So, how does one begin, if you’re new to the practice? Consider the goals you wish to achieve with meditation: stress reduction, taming your thoughts, physical relief from pain, spiritual growth? Tailor your practice to build toward your personal goals. Remember, it’s a journey and not a destination.

Keeping a meditation journal, as you go along, can be very helpful. The most important thing is consistency. Make meditation a part of your daily routine, and ideally at the same time each day.

Once you have the basics in place, it’s time to begin. Choose a pose or stance which is comfortable, and a space which is calming, private and quiet. If playing comforting music or lighting candles, or incense, relaxes you, then do that!

Honor Your Ancestors As The Wheel Turns

Click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comThe Wheel of Fortune in the Tarot signifies change and transformation in our lives. We are now moving into a new season, but also other changes are coming. We can feel them! When we live close to the seasons and cycles of life, nature assists us through this transformation.

As the wheel turns, we come into the time now of Halloween, Samhain, Hallowmas, and then All Souls’ Day to honor our ancestors. Our elders are many: the ancestors, the wisdom keepers, our inner wise one, as well as those who give counsel and pass it on to those who seek them out. They are the healers of old and can come through as ancestors or guides.

These wise ones can slip between the worlds, transforming inner reality into outer reality, reminding us that we can too. They ask us: what do you want? What is your dream and vision? What’s holding you back?  What are you willing to give up for something greater, a bigger vision? What needs to be healed? What would you do if you tapped into, and trusted your own wisdom?

Our European sister, the Baba Yaga, Hecate, the Greek Goddess of the Crossroads, is someone I deeply connect with, as is Mother Mary and Archangel Azrael. In my practice one of my specialties is working with those going through transitions and metaphorical crossroads of all kinds. Crossroads are places of power. It’s a place where we can give an offering of gratitude, or petition, or prayer.

At this time of the year the veil is thin, a time when we celebrate and honor our ancestors. There are many ways we can do this, for example by changing up our altars or creating a sacred space where we can display pictures of our loved ones, friends, pets, and adding things around it that they loved in this life, along with candles, and flowers.

The Spirit Rituals Of Life – Part 3

click for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comPain can just make things downright miserable. We can have the best of everything: a great job; a wonderful, caring spouse; a wonderful home; wealth and luxury; the list goes on, but if you’re in emotional pain, or suffering from a chronic illness, it is very difficult to connect spiritually… let alone do anything uplifting every day.

But, committing to rituals that are good for us every day, can help relieve the pain. I have many clients who suffer from fibromyalgia, depression, and all kinds of pain. One thing that I can say for sure is that whatever may help or work for one person, may not for another. Each person needs to be helped on a individual level.

I have found that emotional pain is sometimes just as painful as physical pain.  Those that have lost loved ones sometimes don’t want to get out of bed, just like my client who suffers from migraines, she just wants to lay in bed most days with the shades drawn and to be left alone.

While I was alone in the woods, I asked some questions regarding pain, and how pain can help us to take action to connect with more happiness or contentment.

How can we relieve physical pain? Spirit says, “If it doesn’t kill you, it makes me stronger.” Do things that help alleviate pain. For example, one of my clients suffered from severe osteoarthritis and arthritis, so she took it upon herself to start taking supplements that build up the joints and help cushion the bones when they grind against each other. She said that this one little daily ritual is what has saved her from experiencing the pain on a grand scale. It has minimized her discomfort remarkably.

The Spirit Rituals Of Life – Part 2

click for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comI had just finished making the bonfire for the evening. The sun was setting and I had had a good day walking in the woods on what looked like a well-worn path. I was contemplating the day and reflecting on some things that came to me.

I was not remembering what my ancestor had said about an angel coming to visit me. I had just let it go, and felt if it was meant to be it would happen in the right timing. I was not going to obsess over it. I just wished to enjoy each precious moment and was looking forward to deep meditation after the sun when down.

When I went into meditation, I did as I normally do, connecting with the earth and doing my visualizations. In my mind’s eye my feet began to grow roots to the middle of the earth, and I was filling up with earth energy and light. I meditated for what seemed like an hour. Upon coming out of the deep meditation, I was feeling warmth, from the fire… but also from something else.

I looked straight ahead and on all sides of me was pure white light. It was the whitest light I have ever seen. It was so white that I think there had to be a different name for it. It evoked a serene feeling that was beyond anything I had ever experienced. The best way to describe this light was that it was that of a very powerful angel.

The angel was very tall, with huge wings. They were enveloping me while they stretched out what seemed to be very wide. It felt so healing and comforting.

The Spirit Rituals Of Life – Part 1

click for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comI recently had the opportunity to spend time in a cabin out in the woods. The best part for me was the bonfire at night, while listening to the wisdom of my spirit guides.

I had hoped to enjoy solitude there, but it turned out there were other folks staying in cabins nearby. I was on this three day vacation in the woods to meditate. I had planned to go on this trip alone to get some deeper spiritual insight into what brings true fulfillment in life.

I also knew in my heart I did not have to go to an ashram far away in India, or some other exotic destination. I knew in my heart going into the woods that true contentment and happiness can only be found from within.

Blessings come to us when we are willing to listen to that still silent voice within. Spirit always meets us halfway. The first blessing came on my first day there, when I learned that the people in the neighboring cabins were all leaving and I would have the place to myself soon, except for the people who run the camp. But they were far enough away and I could finally enjoy some serious silence and seclusion.

The first night was simply magical! If I walked a little ways from the cabin, I could see the entire sky lit up with stars. I walked to the camp store to purchase some odds and ends, and trekked back to my quiet spot in the woods to get a bonfire going. Then I just relaxed, peacefully watching the flames. I was surrounded with the elements of fire, water, air and of course earth.

Mastermind Manifesting

click for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comWe all love to create. That’s what we’ve come here to do. One of my favorite processes for manifesting is a type of ‘mastermind’ visualization exercise, which I have used successfully for over 30 years.

I discovered this technique decades ago at a Unity Church event, where my mentor, Jack, demonstrated many spiritual practices during a weekend retreat. The one that stood out I still use to this day, and even teach to others, adding my own spin to it.

The concept is similar to author Napoleon Hill’s concept of a  mastermind group. In his books, Hill discussed the idea of the ‘mastermind,’ which referred to two or more people coming together in harmony to solve problems.

It’s a very powerful practice, because many people around the world are using this process, or a similar one, which connects us and supports our visions. It’s a short process, it’s fun and I know you will enjoy it.

Originally it was done in a group, in a quiet space. As you would in meditation, we would close our eyes and hold an image or situation we want to manifest, along with also holding the visions of the other people in the room. You can do this on your own at home, but still co-create with other people all around the planet. You will be holding and building up the energy of their vision too, as they are for you.

To begin, relax in a chair, with your feet touching the ground, and close your eyes. Take a deep breath in through you nose and breathe out though your mouth. Continue to focus on your breath and relax your body until you are ready to proceed.
