Sometimes we have to look within ourselves and ask really hard questions. One of the really hard questions is: what are you willing to do or not do for your own self-worth.
This dilemma is often seen in situations where someone holds on to a relationship that has run its course. Many times in life we have people who come in for a reason or a season, and during the times that they come into our lives they are there to teach us lesson in life. But then the time also comes for them to move on, and for us to let them go. Read the rest of this entry »
Yesterday, I was honored to have a seeker say, “You need to blog about this. You have my permission to share my story: all of my story.”
Therefore, this blog part three is simply a true story of the love of humanity that people can share through sincere connections that we established on video chat. Everything here is true except names; I have not used my seeker’s real name.
The Joy of Success!
Meredith gained insight by speaking to her dead husband’s family and friends for additional emotional and financial support. She was able to pay the July rent. She also had a piece of property that sold, but it would be October before the money transfer would occur. The comfort of knowing some money for rent was coming made job hunting easier. Her psychic kept telling her that each interview would make the next one less stressful. Read the rest of this entry »
As the ‘back to school’ season approached yet again, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how I can best help my daughter with her studies and tests. I am in school as well, so we both have lot of studying and learning ahead of us. I don’t particularly get nervous about taking tests, but my daughter does.
I was asked recently if there was anything spiritual a person can do to help ease the stress of constant studying, focusing on homework and the anxiety that comes from having to take so many tests. I’m happy to report that yes, there is!
As a Reiki practitioner I often call upon Archangel Raphael for help with my healing sessions. I call upon him because he is known in the angelic realm to help with such matters. Just as Archangel Raphael helps with healing, Archangels Uriel and Zadkiel can help with studying and tests. Read the rest of this entry »
The word ‘choice’ seems to have that curious quality of making people feel that they have a future because there are many. If the wrong choice is made, they would have according to lore omitted an obvious answer and messed something up so badly by making yet another obvious and painful mistake, usually to the same obvious and painful detriment that most people would frown upon. According to the myth of choice, we all have the moral and emotional fortitude to steer clear from making the bad decisions in the first place.
I often worry about my clients self perception as it guides their future actions. They often seem to put themselves down and blame themselves almost exclusively for the ending of their relationships, and often their entire life. So it’s this moral clause of ‘She is alone because she chooses to’ or ‘is sick because she wants to be’ that is pervasive in our success oriented society. And with that they infer that we keep making the same wrong decisions not just once, but over and over again and are idiotically purposefully continuing to press the wrong button, over and over.

Many people wish there could be a ‘quick fix’ to solving all problems – love life, money issues, family traumas. We’ve all been there and long for the days of worry-free living.
There is no such thing as a perfect life, but many say you can achieve something close enough through positive thinking. When you dwell on the troubles and worries, you are turning your energy into a magnet for the negative.
It is said that cutting out negative keywords from your conversations and thoughts, will cut out the negative from happening. For example the thought: “I wish my love life wasn’t such a mess.” You are focusing on the negative of the situation. A positive spin would be: “I wish to find my one true love.” Read the rest of this entry »
In order to merely keep food on the table for this mob, the father and head of the household, a goldsmith by profession, worked almost 18 hours a day at his trade, as well as any other paying chore he could find in the neighborhood.
Despite their seemingly hopeless condition Albrecht and Albert, two of the elder children, had a dream. They both wanted to pursue their talent for art, but they were fully aware of the fact that their father would never be financially able to send either of them to the art academy.
After many long discussions at night, in their crowded bed, the two boys finally worked out a pact. They would toss a coin. The loser would go down into the nearby mines and, with his earnings, support his brother who would attended the academy. Read the rest of this entry »
Joy is the emotion evoked by well-being, success, or good fortune or by the prospect of possessing what one desires. Joy is a state of happiness that comes from knowing that all is perfect in your world.
Joy unfortunately is attached to perfectionism, which is unattainable instead of perfection, which is exemplified in excellence. If you are not in a state of Joy through the journey of your Life purpose it is because you are holding perfectionism in your god box whether you know it or not!
Joy is choosing your feelings every step of the way. It is taking responsibility for what you feel and how you think about it. Read the rest of this entry »
In my younger years I was very impressed by people from the past who left a big mark on history as well as people in the present who were living lives of fame and fortune. I spent most of my younger years believing that I had to grow up and become someone like these people whom I idolized or my life would be less than successful.
But, I was also raised in the Mennonite Church of the Brethren and understood Christ’s message about living unattached to ‘ things’. And then in my teenage years discovered Buddha’s teachings about living simply.
Through the years I pushed myself with my gifts of writing music and poetry, drawing and painting and tried to become a singer-songwriter and well-known artist. And through the years I read more and more about the Buddha and about the messages of Christ. Read the rest of this entry »
