The very first, and rather touching description of humility that I ever heard was during my earliest days of following a Twelve Step Program of Alcoholics Anonymous. I was read out by a man with 16 years of sobriety:
Humility is perpetual quietness of heart. It is to have no trouble. It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore. To wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me. It is to be at rest when nobody praises me, and when I am blamed or despised, it is to have a blessed home in myself where I can go in and shut the door and kneel to my Father in secret and be at peace, as in a deep sea of calmness when all around and about is seeming trouble.
My mentor in that program told me to try kneeling in prayer. She told me this humbling posture would strengthen my intention of any prayer I was reciting. Read the rest of this entry »
A young Cherokee child gets into an argument with one of his peers whom, until now, he felt he had been on good terms with but on this occasion, however, felt that the other boy had been most unjust to him.
In anger, the Cherokee boy runs off to seek advice from his wise grandfather, an elder of the Cherokee tribe, who loves teaching his grandchildren all about life. After telling his grandfather of his injustice, the old man wistfully looked at his grandson and said that he too, in his life, had similar experiences that resulted in him feeling great anger. “It is like there is a fight between two wolves going on inside you,” said the old man, “and indeed a terrible fight.” Read the rest of this entry »
So, you have that empath pal. Your ‘BFF.’ You know, the perfect girlfriend, the person who understands you through and through? Well, think again! That cute acquaintance, co-worker or online friend, may seep into your life and soon control everything – the material you write, the art you produce, the life you live, the people you see, the work you do, the people you date, the people you talk to. And I am talking people you never chose to meet.
A good number of aggressive stalkers are female, in my opinion. I have found that female stalkers are almost as prevalent in number as men. There is however much more awareness and activism when it comes to violence against women when committed by men. I also agree that more can be done to mitigate violence against women, but nothing has been done against perpetrators of violence by women against women. Why is that? Read the rest of this entry »
It is okay to say no. As a matter of fact, it is imperative to learn to say no, and stick with it. We observe that many of you try to be all things to all people. You run yourselves ragged, physically and emotionally, trying to please other people.
You put others ahead of yourselves and then become frustrated and angry when you have no time left for your own personal lives. This is exhausting, stressful and becomes completely unrealistic over time.
The challenge in setting healthy personal boundaries often arises when it becomes difficult to prioritize your own needs and desires against the expectations of others. Since when do these people rule your roost? Since when are their expectations more valid or important than your own peace of mind, ideas or schedules? Why do you give them such power over your dreams, goals, ambitions and life? Read the rest of this entry »
There is a special group of beings currently living on our planet. These remarkable beings are not human. They are angels living among us. These earthly angels are currently taking on a special mission to help mankind through the confusing, and sometimes troubling times we are experiencing here on Earth, as we are going through the ascension process.
It is said that the Earth is evolving from a three dimensional world into a fifth dimensional planet. Many humans will be evolving at the same time.
The Earth Angels may appear to have normal human bodies, like the rest of us, but they are actually still in their light bodies. What makes this pretty special is the fact that they do not age, and they are not subject illness or disease like we are. Read the rest of this entry »
Do you wonder if you are an empath? Many people are empathic and are not aware that they are. An empath is someone with the strong ability to feel the thoughts, emotions, feelings and energy of others. It is a person with the ability to sense, connect and understand on a soulful level with the spirit of another individual on Earth. Below are some of the traits you may have if you are an empath.
You may have a hard time separating between your own feelings and the feelings of others, at times. This is because empaths absorb other people’s emotions and energy subconsciously. Because most untrained empaths do not realize when they do this, it is often very difficult for them to distinguish between their own feelings and the feelings of others, causing them to feel sad at times where there is no apparent reason for it.

With so many unexpected world events recently, a lot of people are feeling stressed, dismayed, worried and anxious. In such perilous times as we are currently facing, it is vitally important to practice self-care.
What do I mean by self-care? From an intuitive’s point of view, after years of working in the psychic field, I have learned that it is important to take care of yourself first and foremost. Is it selfish? Definitely not. It is selfish to take care of everyone else around you, without taking care of you first. You will not have anything to give of yourself if you do not give to yourself first.
It is like being on an airplane, and when the plane is going down, the oxygen masks come down. If there is a child with you or a frail, elderly person, it is best to put the oxygen mask on yourself first and then the child or other person. Because if you don’t, you will probably not be able to help them. Read the rest of this entry »
Karma is a tricky word to define. And no, it doesn’t mean ‘revenge’ or ‘payback!’ In the simplest sense, karma is energy. We get back what we put forth. Or, to paraphrase Mahatma Gandhi, we become the product of our thoughts. And, like other forces at work in the Universe, karma follows a set of basic laws:
Great Law – We reap what we sow, every cause is related to an equal cause.
Law of Creation – Our intentions and desires are related. In other words, God helps those who help themselves.
Law of Humility – It is what it is. We must first address the root of our issues and accept things at face value, before we begin to change. Read the rest of this entry »
