Spirituality is unique to every individual. Some people experience an overwhelming feeling of the Divine within, while some do not get any feeling whatsoever. Many clients ask me how they can get closer to God, or connect with spirit, or even get that feeling of serene tranquility while meditating.
To experience a deeper sense of spiritual connection try one or more of the following strategies in your spiritual practice:
First of all, never get discouraged! Do not stop meditating just because to don’t feel a certain way. Don’t have a preconceived idea of what meditating should be like. Just being committed to the process and staying the moment is enough. Be present. Read the rest of this entry »
Self-hypnosis is also a potent tool for change. Hypnosis, the act of relaxing and dwelling in the subconscious mind with positive self-suggestions, helps to bring change to the body and mind.
We are a society seeking change. How can we bring change without changing ourselves? We set out to do the right thing, and then we find ourselves falling into the same old patterns. We need to accept change as part of who we are right now, and to accept that we are now whom we have chosen to become.
First, we must look at the past and accept it. Then, we may see the present and accept it as the now… and live in it. By living in the now, we create our future. We become who we want to through change and reinforcement. Read the rest of this entry »
Allowing yourself to open up to more of who you are and who you came here to be in the earth space dimension, is in a beautiful transition. But many of you may have been feeling quite sluggish in recent months. This is to be expected as the old energy fights to hang on. Your collective consciousness is rising up, gaining momentum, growing stronger and allowing the shift to be seamless.
Breathe deeply as you move out of your 3rd dimension reality into the 5th dimension. Many of you have ascended into higher frequencies all the way up to the 12th dimension. You will find yourself moving in and out throughout your day, between and amongst these dimensions.
When your body moves back into the 3rd dimension it might feel like a crash or an explosion. Your body is simply adjusting and attuning to being able to function here on this earth plane within your spiritual body as the driving force of your life. Read the rest of this entry »
“One of the things that can block you dear one is the ‘fear of here’ – your inability to be in the present moment. Instead of being in the here and now, part of your consciousness runs off. This is because you have thoughts that are stuck in past events. When this occurs part of your consciousness runs off to be somewhere else. That part of your mind relives the negative experience repeatedly.
It is like a hamster on a wheel, cycling through the same details but never really going anywhere. Often these repetitions are not even the whole truth of what happened in your life. Instead, they first come through your perception and then become manipulated and twisted through your fear and your sense of victimhood. Read the rest of this entry »
I wanted to set an intention for my evening meditation. I wanted to connect with my higher consciousness, and maybe even connect with my grandfather. I wanted to ask questions about death and what happens to our souls and consciousness. What do we perceive after we die?
After my meditation I took down some notes on things I wanted to share that I felt was important information. Before going to sleep I also set the intention to visit with my spirit guides to retrieve and receive any other information that could help shed some light on our life after death.
This is what I came up with. Read the rest of this entry »
Yesterday is history, tomorrow a mystery, today a gift from Spirit. That is why it is called ‘the present.’ The present is indeed a gift – one that is often ignored. At any given moment we can become miserable. Life is a constant series of choices and decisions. We decide what we want to pay attention to, and what we let go.
This can be a dangerous path. If you are in denial; unconsciously running away from your feelings; living in a fantasy world; using unrealistic thinking; or abuse drugs or alcohol; you can indeed ignore reality and red flags.
There is a balance. We live in the world, but we do not control it. A wonderful saying from the Twelve-Step Program is, “Do the footwork, let go of the results.” One can add to that… ‘don’t forget to smell the roses.’ Read the rest of this entry »
Only you know when it’s time to come out of the closet. Only you know when it’s time to live the life you have always wanted, or were called to live. Is your life like a hamster on a wheel, same old, same old? If you do the same old thing the same old way, you will always get the same old result. Step off the wheel and try something new in your life.
Get rid of the shoulds and should nots. You will always hear that little voice inside your head saying, “I can’t do that, I’m not smart enough… I’m not good enough… I don’t deserve that..” On and on, downing and judging yourself. Only you know when it’s time to clean house, get rid of the useless mental chatter and feel good about yourself. Read the rest of this entry »
Mindfulness basically refers to being fully aware, moment-to-moment, of our subjective conscious experience. But if we look at the components of the word itself, it might actually mean “making our mind full.” This in itself is a strange idea: because it is believed that most of us use only a portion of our mental power, how can we possibly employ it to its full potential?
To be mindful begins with becoming more aware of ourselves, our bodies, our surroundings. One of the reasons it is so difficult to grasp in our modern world is that we’re bombarded with sensory input. Think about the last time you went to the grocery store, or the mall. It’s difficult to concentrate, and that’s on top of all the incoming information on our smart phones and tablets! Read the rest of this entry »
