Cultivating The Sacred, Or Breeding Contempt?

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comLet’s imagine you own an exotic, stunning Bengal cat. Gorgeous markings, intelligent maybe, even psychic. It often acts more like a dog than a tiger and… it also poops. The whole package is the cat. Do you focus on the smell and inconvenience of the poop when sharing stories and talking about the cat? Do you always bring up in conversation what you know about the cat poop, and perhaps other unsavory behaviors? No, of course not! Usually you brag about your cat.

Yet, when it comes to humans, people will brag about how much they know the unsavory (in their opinion) underside of someone, especially if it is a movie star, or a well-known spiritual teacher or healer. It is as if you know some ‘gory details’ about someone of note, this is proof you are ‘in with the it-crowd’ because you know these private things.

If it is a spouse, and you do this, it can often be an underhanded way of control or expressing anger that you do not have the courage or maturity to express directly with the intent of healing and becoming closer with your partner. People who have learned to behave as victims often make this passive-aggressive choice.

All people have a ‘poop side’ to them. Why would anyone choose to focus on that? Are they too scared to stay on their own path, in their own lane? Do they feel the need to be better than others? Why do some people feel obligated to let others know they are one of the ‘special ones’ that has seen the ‘poop side’ of someone, especially if they bring it up in public in an inappropriate fashion? How does that feed their ego, or their wounded self-esteem? Why does that make them feel safer in their world? Do they use it as a way to avoid a direct problem-solving conversation with the person?

Has Your Astrological Sign Changed?

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comReports have been circulating in the media that scientists discovered that everyone’s zodiac sign has changed, due to a permanent shift in the constellations. The truth is this theory has actually been around since the mid-90’s, and has been causing quite a stir in metaphysical circles ever since.

A scientific study that measured the shift in the Earth’s axis (called the wobble) cites that the constellations are no longer moving in sync with the ancient dates and astrological positions originally assigned to signs of the zodiac in early times. This cast a lot of doubt and has been confusing people as to just what their actual sign might be. Of course, it also gave eager skeptics one more reason to point out why astrological practices aren’t valid.

Unfortunately, the scientists and skeptics who promote these claims base their entire theory on a misconception about how the signs of the zodiac came into being, and what they are really based on. In truth, the signs, degrees and divisions of the zodiac have no connection to the heavenly constellations that bear their same names.

The zodiac signs were originally assigned to an ‘elliptical belt’ that surrounds the earth based on the seasons of the year, rather than the stars above. An easier way to understand this is to remember that our seasons start on the first day the Sun enters a particular sign. The first day of Spring (in the Northern Hemisphere) corresponds to the onset of Aries; Summer to the first day of Cancer; Autumn to the first day of Libra; and Winter to the first day of Capricorn.

Inventory And Choices

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comPeople often ask me how to make more progress on their spiritual path. Unfortunately the answer is always the same: time, practice, dedication and money. Money? Yes, even in the days of tribalism, the Shaman was always paid. Communities supported the shaman, to enable her to serve the tribe while keeping her own spiritual practice current and vital. So, yes, the currency of support these days is not food or shelter, but it is money.

As a professor at an art college, I used to observe that the students who were true artists often practiced their art in every spare moment. The students that only wanted a career in art did all they could do just to get by with their classes and training, so they could launch their ‘career’ and get what they wanted and desired, such as money, fame, status or lifestyle.

One is not better than the other, by the way. But this is about looking at what choices you truly make, not what you imagine. Take an inventory of where you spend your time, energy and money, and then look at it carefully, and learn. Own your choices so you don’t convince yourself or others that you are a victim.

By owning your choices, you will have the benefit of not manipulating others (consciously or unconsciously) by presenting as a victim that must be taken care of, and therefore cannot be held accountable. Not presenting as a victim means you will learn to ask for help and support in an honest and mature fashion, rather than singing a sob story to get help and support.

The Power Of Perspective

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comAs a medium and spiritual development teacher, I coach a lot of people on their spiritual path, dreams and goals. Helping to provide clarity and insight is paramount for people seeking peace, healing or change.

I’ve recently noticed two areas of my teaching where the concept of ‘perspective’ has been coming up a lot. Most notable when I work with people on Manifestation and the Law of Attraction, and during the Intuitive and Mediumship development classes in regards to giving readings.

Let me explain first, why it’s important to understand the power of perspective. Perspective can be the difference between success and failure. It can mean continued pain, or the path to healing. It can be seen as opportunity or challenge. A perspective can be confusing, or offer you complete understanding. The thing with perspective is that it is 100%  personal and individual!

Perspective is the story we apply to a situation or event. Several people can witness the same accident, yet each will have a different version or perspective on what happened. Several people can read the same book and give you a completely different explanation of what they believe it was about.

The Wounded Inner Child

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comA wounded inner child will wreak havoc in your life, control your emotional reactions, and flavor all of your life situations and choices. In the extreme, every abuser, pedophile, sadist, emotional abuser has also been abused, but more importantly, remain unhealed. The damages from their own past remain unexamined and is usually still alive in the unconsciousness, and therefore unhealed.

The magical, spiritual, loving, hopeful, optimistic, healed or never wounded inner child does the same: runs your life, controls your heart chakra, and therefore your emotional reactions, and makes healthy choices that support you as an adult.

Simply knowing about the state of your inner child, or making blithe comments about your inner child, does not imply a healing. Simply saying that you have learned some information is a bit like ‘monkey see, monkey do.’ It is a start, but information is not knowledge. Information applied, worked with, integrated into your learning styles, and into your life experiences, becomes knowledge.

Knowing you love someone is different than loving them. People who regularly abuse their spouse psychically, will fall on their knees proclaiming their love, even as their victim lays there waiting for the ambulance. And in their great sorrow, they actually mean what they say. And yet they will do it again, and again, and again. The information is in their head. They did a bad thing, they love their spouse, however because there is no knowledge, there is no healing. Their behavior will continue, until perhaps imprisonment, or some other extreme circumstance occurs. Continue reading

Nature Spirits And Elementals

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comIn ancient times, untouched by technology, humanity was exceedingly close to all of creation. In the earliest spiritual traditions people universally believed in elementals and nature spirits, which today is known as animist religion. Although modern society has for the most part lost touch with these ancient beliefs, they remain very much relevant in neo-paganism, new age spirituality, the occult and modern mysticism.

Nature spirits, including elementals, are believed to be various types of beings or spirits which inhabit nature. Nature spirits abide in trees, flowers, and all other plants, as well as oceans, rivers, lakes, mountains, and minerals. They exist in many forms, and many of them have a human appearance. They are believed to exist as the life force in all living things, as well as the planets, and stars.

Elementals are ruled over by the angels, archangels, and the deva spirits. These spirits are thought to possess supernatural powers and are usually invisible to humans, except for those who possess the psychic ability of clairvoyance. They are the spirits of the four elements air, fire, water, and earth. Continue reading

The Path To Happiness

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comHappiness is something which all sentient beings strive for. Yet, we, as humans, tend to miss the mark on this, more often than not. The paths we choose often aim us towards our ideals of fame, glory, wealth, and power, as we believe that if we can succeed in finding these things, we will finally have the happiness that we have always longed for.

However, none of it really matters in the end. Fame and power both swell and fade like the tides; past glories fall silently on the deaf ears of youth; and even great fortunes can be lost in the blink of an eye. So, then, how can we ever be sure that we have actually found the path towards true happiness?

The ancient Greek philosopher, Epictetus, once said, “There is only one way to happiness, and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.” Several centuries earlier Gautama Buddha said something similar, when he taught about the concept of dukkha, or suffering which is born from craving things which are not in harmony with our highest good. This includes a wide variety of imbalances, which are caused by an ignorance of cause and effect, and a greed for the wrong kind of pleasures. Likewise, in the Jewish faith, this concept is expressed in the teaching moments provided by God’s “afflictions of love” (yissurin shel ahavah), which are meant to provide mankind with the chance to cleanse themselves before rejoining the Divine.
