Making A Meaningful Change

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comMost of us have been struggling with stress, anxiety and depression over the past two years. Whatever your personal struggles are, they are real and valid. The pandemic has been affecting everyone differently.

It is important to acknowledge your feelings and deal with it. Ignoring your struggles will only allow it to become bigger issues. Stress and trauma takes its toll on all of us, especially if left unattended. The best thing you can do for yourself and the people around you is to process it and work towards healing.

It is also vital to understand that your joy and happiness is not dependent on other people, material things, or external circumstances. It can only be found within yourself. And often the only way to access this happiness and joy within is to make some real, meaningful changes in your life.

Many people never find their joy and happiness, because they do not know what brings them joy and makes them truly happy. This is the big question. Look within and find makes you happiest. Then concentrate on that. Make a plan and start working towards it. It may sound simplistic, but it will soon begin to manifest in your life if you believe it.

For example, if you want to be in a happy, healthy relationship and you are tired of the bad relationship you are currently in, decide to make the change. Simply choose to be happy. You deserve to be happy and to be loved. Decide that you want to make it happen. It really is as simple as that.

Take Better Care Of Yourself

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comI believe that we are given the opportunity to learn many valuable spiritual lessons by having many life experiences that bring us closer to enlightenment. I also believe that if we don’t learn a certain lesson, the Universe will simply provide another opportunity to learn that same lesson again, and this time it will be even more challenging and difficult.

A few years ago, I had been running at almost a break-neck pace. There was work; funeral arrangements twice; the birth of twins to one of my daughters; making sure the other daughter got to her radiation and chemotherapy cancer treatments; running my own household; helping my daughters with their children; and taking care of the two children who live with me.

I was worrying about everyone and everything, whether I had control or not over what was happening to them. The stress and lack of self-care took a toll, but I did what I always did: push through it as much as I could, getting as much done as I could, helping everyone around me as much as I could, and collapsing at the end of the day.

Eventually, I became severely ill with pneumonia. It got so bad my husband woke up one morning to find me passed out on the dining room floor. I have no idea how I got there or even why I would go there, I don’t remember any of it!

For months I was back and forth between home, the doctor’s office, and the hospital. I was not beating the illness and I was permanently fatigued, listless, depressed and kept losing my voice. But my solution was simply to drink more coffee, and push, push, push through it, keep going.

I became increasingly frustrated and impatient, more at myself than anyone else. I felt like a cat chasing its tail. I was not taking care of myself, and it got worse, because I pushed myself beyond my own ability to endure, unable to accomplish much, and failing all around. Then my doctor warned me in no uncertain terms that I am living my life with my thumb on the ‘self-destruct button.’ The time had come for me to make up my mind: live or die.

Embracing The Uncertainty Of Change

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comOne of the earliest life lessons I had to learn the hard way is that change is the only thing that ever consistently happens in life. We cannot avoid it. It is fundamental to our journey in this lifetime to learn to embrace change, as without it we cannot grow and evolve as spiritual beings.

Yet, change causes much fear and apprehension for many people. It can be daunting. This is in fact one of the reasons why clients contact me for advice and predictions. In life it is vital to always be prepared for change.

Being mentally and emotionally prepared gives us a greater sense of control over any forthcoming event and thus alleviate some of its stress. Who wants to remain stagnant anyway? It is vital to look for the good that change can bring, rather than dwell on any potential negative impact it could bring about. We need to take on board the necessity to learn and strengthen from it.

Change comes in many forms. For example, it is estimated some people change their homes up to eight times in their lifespan. How stressful is that?  But instead of focusing too heavily on the downside, such as the stress of buying, selling and packing, spirit advises we see a new home as a beautiful new chapter in our lives. Think of it as an exciting fresh start and allow yourself time to adjust. You may soon be happier in your new abode than you could ever imagine!

Beginning a new job is equally stressful. For whatever reason you find yourself in new employment, the very thought of walking into a new workplace on a Monday morning, meeting new colleagues in unfamiliar environment is always daunting. However, rather than be afraid, advises spirit, why not congratulate yourself for being there in the first place?

Practical Guidelines For Aromatherapy – Part 3

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comAromatherapy and essential oils are often used in spiritual and metaphysical practices, but it can also enhance our health and well-being in many ways, including relaxation, relieving tension, calming the mind improving concentration, and increasing mental clarity.

Below are five practical ways to use your favorite essential oils in your home, as well as personal health and beauty.

CANDLES

Any essential oil can be used in a candle to infuse your home, or any space where energy needs to be shifted, cleansed, or recalibrated.

Candle-making is an art and a fun craft for the entire family. You can use molds, tall fireproof glasses, dixie cups.  Just be sure to add the oil while melting the wax, not after the candle has been poured, I learned this the hard way!

SOAPS AND LOTIONS

Soap making is also an art and especially useful in gift-making around the holidays. Making a personalized gift of soap, lotion or candles is inexpensive and always treasured instead of commercial retail products.  Soaps can be either in liquid form, or a bar form (or any shape you can think of).

Practical Guidelines For Aromatherapy – Part 2

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comAromatherapy and essential oils are often used in spiritual and metaphysical practices, but it can also enhance our health and well-being in many ways, including relaxation, relieving tension, calming the mind improving concentration, and increasing mental clarity.

Below are three of my favorite essential oils and the best ways to use them.

PEPPERMINT

I use peppermint oil regularly. It has a crisp, clean scent that is both energizing and soothing. It evaporates rapidly and has an intense aroma.  Peppermint is one of the essential oils commonly used for gastric issues and in muscle rubs. I used it for morning sickness and my mother put a few drops on a cotton ball pinned to her collar to help with nausea caused by chemotherapy.

It’s expectorant and decongestant properties make it excellent with upper respiratory ailments, colds, chronic bronchitis, sinus headaches, and seasonal allergies. Diffuse it in an oil diffuser, put 10 drops in a bathtub (4 for children), or make an alcohol plaster.

If you choose to use a tea light diffuser, be sure to put water in with the oil, or the oil will burn, and smell unpleasant. When using an oil diffuser start with 4 or 5 drops, then adjust as desired.

You will need a dish towel, or another rag that will fit around your person’s neck, rolled to fit, 2 or 3 inches wide. Pour 2 or 3 caps full of rubbing alcohol on a 2 to 3 inch square, put 3 or 4 drops of peppermint on the alcohol, place the square on the throat and pin to keep in place.  The alcohol will help the oil evaporate evenly through the night.

Practical Guidelines For Aromatherapy – Part 1

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comAromatherapy and essential oils are often used in spiritual and metaphysical practices, but it can also enhance our health and well-being in many ways, including relaxation, relieving tension, calming the mind improving concentration, and increasing mental clarity.

According to Dr. Brent Bauer of the Mayo Clinic, some studies have shown that aromatherapy might also have health benefits, including relief from anxiety and depression, improved quality of life, particularly for people with chronic health conditions, as well as improved sleep.

But I believe it is important to use only good quality oils. There are several ways the oils are extracted from the plant. Distillation and expression create the purest form of oil, which is the kind of the essential oils I prefer to use for health purposes. Other ways are infusion and extraction which create perfume oils, the ones you can buy in any store that also sells perfumed candles and related products. These can used as room deodorizers, but not for treatments.

Furthermore, not all oils are created equally. Most are easy to use, but some can be too strong and must first be diluted with other ingredients before it can be used. Some oils are simply too toxic and should never be applied directly to the skin. Before using any oil, please do some research online or talk with someone knowledgeable who can advise you.

Diffusion Methods

Light bulb rings. I recommend the ceramic ones, the metals in the brass rings aren’t good for the lungs, no matter how safe they seem to be, plus they’re harder to clean. The biggest advantage in using a ring is that the oils fill the room quickly. The biggest disadvantage is that it needs to be placed on a traditional rounded top bulb, but in my house I have energy efficient bulbs, which have a twisted shape.

Sleep Restores Body, Mind And Spirit

Click Here NOW for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comThere is a saying ‘our issues are in our tissues,’ meaning our stress, fears and worries show up in our bodies. Keeping our body, mind, and spirit back in harmony and balance is essential for all of us. It ensures inner peace and well-being.

The restorative power of sleep and dreams has been a specific pursuit of mine in recent months. It has been my mission to reach that sweet spot for my body’s wake-sleep-dream rhythm and I have been discovering more of the magic that sleep and dreams can offer.

I find when I have good sleep, I remember my dreams more often. This not only helps with daily problem-solving, since my mind is at rest and not resistant, but I also receive valuable guidance and spiritual reassurance on matters I am worried about. Sleep and dreaming also help us process our emotions from our experiences of stress and trauma during our waking hours.

The dream state is also a time when we are free to explore and find new inspiration. We are in a world of our own making that belongs to only us. And the possibilities are truly endless; even time travel, prophetic dreams, loved ones coming to visit.

In the Harry Potter book The Prisoner of Azkaban, Dumbledore tells Snape not to wake Harry: “Let him sleep. For in dreams, we enter a world that is entirely our own. Let him swim in the deepest ocean or glide over the highest cloud.”

I’m a bit of a technology nerd, so that makes sleeping and dreaming even more of adventure. There are many cool technologies available these days to improve our sleep time. There are watches and other devices to create a record of not only time slept, but even quality of sleep, heart rate and other interesting facts. There are also amazing phone apps streaming sleep meditations and white noise.

I keep a journal to write down my dreams before I rise, and I also to jot down before I fall asleep those questions and life challenges I need answers for. It has further been my experience that you can even reach out in your dreams to loved ones who have passed for advice or guidance, especially if they had a passion for something you need help with.
