The Secret Of ‘The Secret’

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comThe Secret, a best-selling book and film by Rhonda Byrne, has popularized the concept of the universal Law of Attraction in mainstream society since it was published more than a decade ago. Yes, there is such a law, but most people’s understanding of this law is that it depends solely on the conscious mind – what we think is what we become. But in truth it has nothing to do with our conscious mind. If it did, all the Law of Attraction gurus in the world would be rich without working, skinny without dieting, have muscles without working out, and in love with a perfect mate without having to apply any relationship skills.

The conscious mind, our wishful thinking, our conscious desires and appetites, does not drive our lives. Mainstream Psychology knows this. Famous Austrian psychoanalyst and neurologist, Sigmund Freud popularized the concept of the unconscious mind and believed that it was a repository of thoughts, memories, feelings, which our conscious mind is reluctant to accept. Sigmund Freud’s theory of personality divided the human mind into 3 levels: the conscious, subconscious, and unconscious mind. The conscious mind, he believed, only represents 10% of our mental capacity.

Victims And True Feelings

click here for a free reading at PsychicAccess.comWhat is the difference between being a victim and feeling like a victim? Well, the first is identifying as a victim and making decisions from that base as a way of life. The other is going into the wounds of whatever happened to them, where they were a victim, and feeling those feelings, exploring them, processing them and allowing them to be released, as a part of the journey of healing.

Healing is waking up, coming out of denial. You finally admit you were hurt, abused, abandoned, raped, lied to, robbed, beaten up and that yes, it hurt. Yes, there was terrible fear and a loss of self, a loss of faith, depression, anxiety, and so much more. This stage is shocking, and it hurts. Your ego is demolished as you finally cave into the realizations and emotions that emerge as you face the truth about what happened to you, instead of minimizing it, explaining it away, or muscling through it.

Grieving, Raging And Learning

You will inevitably need to move through the grief cycle in order to find hope and healing. This process can take two years and longer. Many people will not understand that you are grieving, since you haven’t lost anyone to death. This process is not linear. It twists and turns through loops that overlap, moves forward, and then falls back again. Continue reading

Healing Your Life With Age Regression

42398487-hypnotherapist-holding-her-patients-wrist-in-therapists-officeHypnosis is increasingly being used by people seeking to change situations in their lives. Hypnotherapy is perhaps best known as a means to stop smoking, or to achieve weight loss. But hypnosis is also used effectively in medical settings, including for pain management, surgery anxiety and increased immunity.

An altered state of consciousness known as hypnotic trance is induced by hypnotherapists to help clients rearrange their thought processes and advance positive constructive actions. This enables clients to change habits and feelings, which produce the desired end result.

In hypnosis the client is always in control and it is the client’s mental processes that create the changes. The hypnotist is merely a coach or guide. The mind already knows the right way, but needs the opportunity to process and align itself for personal change.

Many of us find ourselves dealing with mental or emotional challenges rooted in our past. Memories are stored in the subconscious mind. Everything that you have ever seen, heard, smelt, tasted or felt; in other words everything you have ever sensed is recorded in the subconscious mind.

To clearly recognize the negative subconscious issues we may be clinging to, and to move on from it, we must look with uncritical eyes at thoughts and feelings stored in our memories. Hypnosis allows a person to use natural mental processes to bring clear understanding, and often forgiveness, to troubled or stressed aspects of our being. Continue reading

The Spiritual Teacher As The Enemy

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comIn psychology, therapists are trained to handle what is known as transference behavior in some of their clients or patients. Spiritual healers, readers, and teachers generally do not have much knowledge or skill in this regard, which can be detrimental for both the practitioner and those who come to them for services.

What is transference? When people go to spiritual professionals, they are often hurt and in psychological, emotional or spiritual pain, which sometimes also manifests as physical pain. People mainly are ‘hurt’ by other people in their lives, with whom they have emotional connections. When emotional connections are damaged (real or imagined) people feel hurt, betrayed, abandoned or experience various other emotions. When seeking healing or guidance (in whatever modality) those feelings of hurt are often transferred to the healer, teacher or other ‘authority figures.’

Needing The Love Of A Spiritual Teacher

click photo for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comThe love of a spiritual teacher is not human love and this is often misunderstood in our Western culture. Many people are drawn to spirituality because they are profoundly lonely. For those looking for the love of a teacher, you can count on that loneliness to be a profoundly unconscious desire to be connected to the Self and to Spirit.

On a dangerous note, this is how cult leaders thrive, by preying on those who don’t realize they are seeking spiritual love, and by offering a manipulative human love. Human love can never fill the gaping hole, and because cult leaders tend to be sociopaths, it can take years for cult followers to wake up. By then there will be a great deal of damage control needed in order to heal.

Live Your Wild, Precious Life!

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.com“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” These words by Mary Oliver is my favorite inspirational quote, which I even use as the postscript in all my letters and emails. No matter our age, we will always have desires. They are an important part of what our soul came here to learn and experience.

In this life we go through it all: love, loss, sickness, grief, anger, hope, and joy. Some of our challenges can knock us off our game and leave us in the land of the lost.  We can feel like giving up on love, our dreams and desires, and numb out.

Before the movie The Bucket List was released, I was planning a transition from a fast-paced engineering job. I was contemplating early retirement and I wanted to take some gap time before going full-time in my metaphysical business.

Your Life Path Number

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comWhen it comes to our birthdays, we may think of our zodiac sign first, but did you know numerology is just as insightful? Each of us has a Life Path number which can be easily determined by our date of birth.

For example, the Life Path number for someone born on January 14, 1974 is 9. January is the first month of the year (1). The 14th reduces to 5 (1+4). The year 1974 reduces to 3 (1+9+7+4=21; 2+1=3). When we add each of these together, we get 9 (1+5+3).

Everyone has a Life Path number between 1 and 9. Life Path 1 people are, not surprisingly, natural leaders and go-getters. Their 2 counterparts are usually peacemakers and diplomats, as in the phrase, “I am second.” A 3 person is usually creative and good at connecting with others, while 4’s are pragmatic problem-solvers. If you have a 5 Life Path, you are a compassionate person determined to better the world. Those born under 6 tend to be domestic and make good parents, while 7 people are known for being investigative and quick minds. If you have an 8 as your life path, you are ambitious and must guard against being a workaholic. And those under 9 are known for their compassion and warmth.
