The Truth About Closure After A Break-Up

Click Here for a FREE psychic reading right now at PsychicAccess.comSymbolism is strong magic. Creating a ritual to achieve closure, when we have suffered a loss or disappointment, offers us strength and healing through symbolism. It is symbolic, for example, to write letters to people who have wronged you in some way. Burning that letter is then a way to start the healing process. Once burned, the energy that is released from your being is the start of healing for you.

Instead, we often tend to run through many a scenarios in our mind. We tend to rehash the past, over and over. We repeat conversations with a former partner, trying to find understanding and closure. But it does not release the pain, for you are talking to them in your mind, and not really having a conversation with them. Depending on the level of trauma you have experienced, this exercise only cements the fact that it was a traumatic experience, with no real closure.

Closure is a word that is too often thrown around without truly understanding its meaning. If you have your heart broken by someone, and do not know the reasons why they had done what they had done, it leaves you in a place of bewilderment. Many people then think that if they can find a more in-depth, or subconscious reason for the break-up or relationship failure, they would be able to close that door once and for all.

Time To Follow Your Heart

Click Here right now for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comThe Covid-19 pandemic has been causing many of us to face some of our life issues that may not have come up otherwise, had we not been under so much stress, while isolated from external social support.

The times we are going through remind me a lot of what the United States went through after 9/11. People were scared, and our lives changed. Some of us questions our purpose and our future: our lifestyles, our goals, our dreams. Many homes overnight became fortresses of self-isolation. Air travel became an issue. Many things we took for granted changed literally overnight. Sound familiar?

At first it was a matter of fear, anxiety and self-preservation. Then the effect on our emotions, choices and attitudes kicked in. Many people became more humble, patient and kind. We were more unified than ever, similar to our mindset during World War II, when a nation came together with one goal: to protect and defend what they loved.

Back then, people planted gardens, and bought bonds to support the cause. Industry became a place where women could play a more significant role in manufacturing and engineering. All for one thing, and one thing only: to secure our freedom. Covid-19 has brought with it similar challenges and adversity. What remains to be seen is how we will choose to respond and what good might come from it. I believe we will ultimately beat this crisis in the same way we have done in the past, both as individuals and as a nation. We have done it before, and we will do it again.

From Believing To Knowing

Click Here to get a FREE psychic reading right now at PsychicAccess.com“I wish I believed in the spirit world like you do,” my best friend commented many years ago. I then told her that it wasn’t so much a case of believing, but more of a matter of knowing.

Last week, a new friend asked me to teach him how to have this ‘knowing’ that I have. But I really have no idea how to do that? I never experienced a transition from believing to knowing. The ‘knowing’ has always just been there.

I have always felt that the spirit realm is our true connection to home. As the years passed, I began more and more to view planet Earth as our schoolroom. And boy can we get some lessons while we are here!

When I think back, I have recollections of spirit activity around me from when I was about five or six years old. My parents and I were living in Ottawa, Canada, at the time, where my dad had recently been employed. We were temporarily living in a creepy rental home, until my father found his feet and we would be able to move to a house with better vibes.

I recall seeing and hearing shadow beings in the hallway of that eerie house in Ottawa, and I remember telling my mother about the paranormal activity I sensed there. But she thought I was just imagining things, or seeking attention. I also recall lying in bed, scared, listening to what sounded like chattering voices. The energy in that old place wasn’t malevolent, but it didn’t feel benevolent either.

The most profound experience occurred when I was just nine years old. We had moved back to the United Kingdom and were visiting family friends. They were hosting a party, and the kids were sent off to bed, while the adults carried on with their social event below.

A Time To Nurture Your Spiritual Self

Click Here for a free psychic reading right now at PsychicAccess.comAs the world comes to grips with the unique stressors foisted upon it in recent months, you might find yourself looking for answers, and wondering what lies ahead.

In challenging times, spiritual sources of nourishment and protection will help you carry on. Now, more than ever before, you may need some form of spiritual anchor in your life, to remain steadfast and hopeful.

Spirituality means different things to different people, but generally constitutes the belief in a higher power, or something unseen or greater than ourselves: God, Goddess, Spirit, Source, Universe, the Divine. Spiritual practice, such as prayer or meditation, serves to expand our consciousness and awareness of this higher power.

Spirituality is always a reliable source of hope, inner strength and courage, helping you look past trying circumstances, and focus on what you can be grateful for in your life. Ensure that you remain consistent and diligent with your spiritual practice, in both good times and bad. Whatever spiritual tradition you follow, it will bring about mental solace and prevent emotional drain.

Remember also that the mind is like a sponge. It absorbs information and soaks up environmental cues. But you have full control over your mind, and you can release what’s taking up space inside it, if it doesn’t serve your emotional health or personal well-being. You also have a choice in what information you pay attention to, or decide to focus on.

An ‘Awareness Yawn’ For The Whole Truth

Click Here for a FREE psychic reading right now at PsychicAccess.comThe majority of human beings believe they tell the truth most of the time. Few will admit they lie. And none will disclose just how often, when, and how they twist the truth ‘a little’ to suit their needs. They convince themselves they are not really lying, when they know very well that their distorted versions of the truth are deceptive.

We are curious creatures. Adept at swindling ourselves to favor a certain idolized self-image we have created. One that we must maintain consistently in as much as our sovereign power allows. Hah! How utterly ridiculous and futile are our attempts to portray an untruth so vividly transparent. We can’t hide from our true self, for that’s who we live and die with.

It’s all a matter of unconscious perception. An awareness yawn would serve to do the trick of waking us up, but we’re simply not interested, especially if it involves ‘disturbing our self-indulgent illusions.’ We want to continue to believe how wonderful, well-informed, funny, intelligent, attractive, spiritually evolved, dedicated, hard-working, honest, caring, decent, committed and interested we are.

We walk around as if we not only have an ace up our sleeve (an extra added edge), but can make it magically appear at will. We sincerely think no one can see through our considerately, deceptively masked, incognito ‘what’s in it for me’ personality.

These deceptively constructed guises are particularly prevalent when we are entering into new relationships. That’s when we really put on the ‘dog and pony show.’ We come across so deliberately ‘put together’ and manicurely maintained. It matters not, if that ‘face of the hour’ is nowhere near the panoramic view of incalculable distortion occurring on the inside. We are on a personal quest; we want something. And, nothing will deter us from our conquest.

Spiritual Attachment And Detachment

Click Here for a FREE psychic reading right now at PsychicAccess.comThe physical world is not the only realm in which some of us struggle with issues of detachment (alienation), or attachment (codependency). The same holds true in the spirit realms.

If we experience spiritual attachment, this usually happens as a result of an addictive personality. In life, one could be addicted to unhealthy relationships, various substances, shopping, food, and so on. The driving force behind all of these is basically the same – the attempt to fill a perceived void with a substitute.

This inclination can then lead to the presence of negative spirit attachments with addictive energies. Perhaps the spirit entity had the same kind of addiction when it was in physical form, and still needs to experience that ‘high.’

When this happens, the victim in the physical world, to whom the spirit entity has attached itself, may become more stubborn and in denial over the need to change their habits. Many friends and family members who have had to deal with addicts, will tell you that addiction changed their loved one’s personality. From a spiritual perspective this is very true.

Spiritual detachment, on the other hand, happens when someone is the victim of abuse or trauma. A part of themselves ‘detaches’ or becomes distant from their core self, which may unintentionally invite a more powerful spirit presence to enter, to ‘protect’ or ‘guide’ the victim. Aristotle’s phrase ‘nature abhors a vacuum’ comes to mind. It means every space or void in nature always needs to be filled with something. The same holds true in the spirit realm.

Home Is Still Where The Heart Is

Click Here for a free psychic reading right now at PsychicAccess.comThis is a traumatic, stressful time in history for many of us, especially since there is so much confusing news and information to process and assimilate. We can, however, do a number of things during this extremely stressful period to make our lives easier, instead of cowering under the bed until it all blows over. Most importantly, we can choose to face reality with gratitude, courage and fortitude.

There should be precautions put into place certainly, but also there should be some joy and happiness, as well as planning for the future. We should be taking advantage of this blissful and happy downtime inside the place where we usually love, hope and live – inside our personal domicile, our home.

Never before have we had such ample opportunity to get to know our loved ones in a more intimate and connected way. Never before have we been reminded so deeply of the many reasons we have to be thankful for. This is a unique time in our lives, during which we can teach our children, as well as each other, that what appears to be a bleak and dire moment can certainly be turned around and changed into one of joy, appreciation and merriment.

Instead of sitting around feeling miserable, many parents have, for example, been contriving makeshift toys, contraptions and activities to help children continue to be happy and carefree, as they should be, whether it be indoors, or in their own backyard.

There are also many adults who are taking advantage of this ‘alone time’ to reconnect, not only with others whom they may have been unintentionally neglecting, but also getting to know and understand themselves on a deeper level.
