Healing Changes in Life

I cannot believe it has been over a year since I have posted a blog. OH DEAR.

But I do know why. I have been undertaking A LOT of changes in my life. I have been metamorphosing.

I have removed myself from a detrimental relationship, moved twice and was in a serious car accident (from which I am still healing). Now, I am in a new home that I love with my two most favorite people, my children. I am working at a job where I can use my skills (and keeps me very busy). I have seriously honed my psychic skills (OMG cool! If you are interested in knowing more, I have updated the Intuitive Healing section of this blog. I seriously LOVE my psychic friends.) And I am making time to paint what I see on the other side. (Here is my recent painting of what The Light looks like to me after death. The Light is way more sparkly, but this is close.) I am especially loving the time I get to teach metaphysics and heal others through past life regression and soul retrieval. I sit here typing as part of my therapy to recover from the serious concussion I have from the car accident.

Life IS getting better every day.

The Maharishi Effect – The Real Reason Meditation Feels So Good

(Previously posted on vedicknowledge.com which is sadly no longer online. Thank you.)

While you relax and meditate ... Focus on the soothing sounds of the waves hitting the sand on the beach.The Maharishi Effect is the phenomenon of the rise of coherence in the collective consciousness of any community. Scientific research has clearly demonstrated that when one per cent of the population of a city or town practices Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation Program, the crime rate significantly decreases. Similarly, when groups of individuals practicing Maharishi’s TM-Sidhi Program equal at least the square root of one per cent of a population, there is a significant reduction of crime and accidents, as well as an increase in stock prices, decreased pollution, decreased unemployment, and decreased hostilities between nations.

The basis of the Maharishi Effect is the rise of collective consciousness. Collective consciousness is the wholeness of consciousness of any specific group. For example, when we talk of community consciousness, we merely put together the consciousness of all the individuals who make up the community; for national consciousness we put together the consciousness of all the citizens of a nation.

There are innumerable divisions and organizations of collective consciousness, but among these there are seven principal levels: family consciousness, community consciousness, city consciousness, state or provincial consciousness, national consciousness, world consciousness, and universal consciousness, each created by the individuals within the group.

The phenomenon of collective consciousness can best be understood by examining the concept of a field, as described by modern science. Physicists delineate a variety of infinite, unbounded, and all-pervasive fields that operate invisibly throughout creation, governing the activities of innumerable Laws of Nature. For example, the electromagnetic field—one of the four principal force fields—permeates the entire universe, and enables radio and television transmitters to send signals by creating waves within the field. While the waves are unseen, they nonetheless create effects with which we are all familiar—the sounds and images of radio and television.

Renewed Life near the Halema'uma'u Crater in Hawai'i.Likewise, the other three fundamental force fields—gravitation, weak interaction, and strong interaction—also pervade everything and behave invisibly throughout Nature. Self-referral consciousness is also a field, though on an even more fundamental level, for it is the omnipresent, invisible, and unbounded field from which all force and matter fields emerge.

Just as a radio transmitter can create waves in the electromagnetic field, individuals constantly create influences on all parts of creation simply because consciousness permeates every aspect of the material universe. To illustrate, if a stone is thrown into a pond, waves are produced that travel throughout the pond. Each wave produces some effect in every part of the pond. Similarly, the wave of individual life, through its activity, produces an influence in all parts of the cosmos.We send out waves like a ripple in a pond

On the basis of this same principle, the direct experience of self-referral consciousness influences every aspect of the universe, enlivening it with the perfect order and harmony inherent within self-referral consciousness. For this reason, groups of individuals can create very powerful effects in the environment through their collective practice of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi program—through their self-referral practice, they enliven every aspect of the universe by stimulating its most fundamental constituent, consciousness, and they especially enliven the collective consciousness of the city or province or nation in which they are located.

Since collective consciousness is created by the individuals within it, as individual consciousness grows, collective consciousness rises; and as collective consciousness rises individual consciousness grows. In other words, as an individual regularly experiences self-referral consciousness and enlivens it in his own awareness, the levels of collective consciousness in which he participates—family, city, province, nation, etc.—are simultaneously improved. This higher value of collective consciousness in turn affects, in a positive way, every one of the individual members of that level of collective consciousness.

Since individual and collective consciousness maintain this reciprocal relationship, a group of individuals practicing the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi program will bring a powerful influence of orderliness and harmony to collective consciousness, enabling an entire population to act more coherently, more harmoniously, and more in accord with Natural Law. On this basis, Maharishi has brought to light the potential for every nation to create invincibility for itself and for all its citizens.

Invincibility not only describes the ability of a nation to maintain impregnability to its enemies—both within the nation and outside of it—it also describes a state in which every aspect of national life is in perfect balance. Invincibility is a state of fully integrated, perfectly coherent national consciousness, in which the inner depth of consciousness is integrated with the outer values of life. Maharishi has described invincibility in his book Enlightenment and Invincibility in the following words:

The sign of invincibility of a nation will be from the integrated value of harmony in the country. The tensions and disharmonies will be less, the flowering of business will be there, trade and industry will be increasing, people will be happy, sickness will be less, seasons will be in time, crops will be abundant, the economy will be better; the nation’s influence in the family of nations will be greater and more appreciated. The internal growth of cultural integrity will be more, people will be functioning more in accordance with the Laws of Nature, they will not violate the Laws of Nature, and therefore they will not create problems for themselves and for others.

That country will be more and more loving to all other countries. The influence of good from the country will be purifying for the whole family of nations. So everyone will love the country. These will be the songs of the growth of invincibility of the nation. (p. 66)

When a significant number of individuals practice the TM-Sidhi Program, in a group (the size varies depending upon the size of the nation’s population), the infinite coherence inherent within self-referral consciousness is spontaneously enlivened in collective consciousness, and every aspect of national life becomes connected. National life not only becomes perfectly balanced, but no negative influences from outside or from within the society can disturb this balance.

Algebra vs. Intuition

algebra

I am torn on this.

It is hard convincing my kids that they need to learn algebra in school. They are often frustrated with math.

However an algebraic algorithm brought through this picture to me via a Facebook post  – and any other Facebook users who are also given the opportunity to see it. (Not everyone sees every post if you did not know that.)

But, think about this… what if we grew up in a world that valued and taught all children to use their intuition and to trust it from birth?

A mother’s intuition knows when her baby is hungry or sleepy or some other need when her baby just looks at her. Her baby knows this to be true and so, can communicate.super sweet baby monkey

If we all grew up able to trust our intuition, utilize our innate psychic abilities and have it be socially acceptable to see and talk to our spirit guides and passed over loved ones…

What then?

Life would be easier.

Fear would be lessened.

We would have instant answers and trust they were true.

Would we then need algebra? I wonder.

How to Break Bad Relationship Patterns from this Life and Previous Lives

Have you ever experienced a relationship that was not working in a positive way or even toxic? Are you looking for the path to healing?Path to Healing

How do you move on from this relationship in a spiritual sense …. ie. How do you break the unseen ties that bind you? Maybe you have not moved on yet, but you are looking for help. Maybe this person was not in a relationship with you, but possibly it was a hurtful, bad event (like molestation or rape) and you want to continue to heal from that.

We are all looking for love and acceptance from someone, but when harsh relationships, memories and emotional events keep resurfacing later in our lives, we are made aware of our need to heal from them.

We need to heal so that we can be whole …. when we are whole, we can bring our whole self into a new, healthy, loving relationship.

Additionally, when a relationship is ending or has ended, it is like a death. We go through the same stages as if someone close to us has died: Denial, Anger, Depression and finally Acceptance.

I firmly believe that forgiveness is always healing, however, I have found several additional ways to also help in the healing process. Please note that forgiveness is not saying that you are okay with what happened, but that you can release the attachment to it and not allow those memories or that person to weigh you down.

Below you will find many different ways to help you heal through whatever connection you have had in a relationship that you would like to release. By doing so, you will feel lighter, freer, more healthy emotionally and spiritually. It is shedding the dark, cloudy energy that formed. It is the releasing of the heavy, pent-up emotions that have been weighing us down – sometime for our entire lifetime or beyond. Use the tool or tools that resonates with you.

Know that it may take years for healing as we are always healing on many levels. By simply acknowledging that you would like to release the attachment to this relationship is the first step to healing. These tools may be your first step. There are many, many ways to heal. These are just a few. It feels like we are chipping away at a large boulder now, but you can do it with a lot of self-work and self-love.

My first suggestion is to ask your angels and spirit guides to send you healing unconditional love. Close your eyes right now and allow it to be so.One Little White Feather from an Angel

 

START WITH THE RELEASING …

 

Release the Patterns of a Past Life

Angelic Prayer from Mhairi at Angel Rainbow

Help provided by Archangel Raziel

Visualize yourself surrounded in rainbow colors.

I call upon Archangel Raziel to help my remember lessons and experiences from my past lives, that have an impact upon my life at this time. Help me to understand and heal from issues that I faced during any of my past lives. Guide me to recognize and release all that no longer serves me in this life, which is connected to a previous existence. I calmly and with love release and heal from all that you show me. Archangel Raziel, thank for this wonderful guidance and allowing me to realize how my past lives have influenced this incarnation.

 

Remember a Past Life

Go straight to the source of why you were attracted to this person in the first place or why you encountered them. By remembering a past life, you can be made aware of being with them before and why. Maybe the experience was similar. Maybe the past life experience explains the relationship. It can be extraordinarily healing on a lot of levels. I have seen a contract I signed to agree to come into this life with a person – all for the learning. Harsh, but I did grow from the experience. We choose all that we have experienced by our own free will.

 

Clear Your Blocks to Your Happiness and Abundance

Here is way to clear any blocks you may have by Joe Vitale. It is from his audio tapes, the Missing Secret:

“Spirit, Superconscience, please locate the origin of my feeling, thoughts of __________________________.
Take each and every level, layer, area and aspect of my being to this origin.
Analyze and resolve it perfectly with God’s truth.
Come through all generations of time and eternity.
Healing every incident and its appendages based on the origin.
Please do it according to God’s will until I am at the present, filled with light and truth, God’s peace and love, forgiveness of myself for my incorrect perceptions, forgiveness of every person, place, circumstances and event which contributed to these feelings, thoughts.
With total forgiveness and unconditional love: I allow every physical, mental, emotional and spiritual problem and inappropriate behavior based on the negative origin recorded in my dna to transform.
I choose _____ (What you want to be) ________________________.
I feel ________ (what you want to feel) ________________________.Heart in Hand-LOVE Thyself

 

Contract/vow Releasement

This is an excerpt from Owen Waters’ book:

“I now renounce and release all vows that I have taken which have outlived their purposes and which now limit my potential for growth. I reclaim my personal freedom and declare such vows renounced and released as of now. I replace old vows with the knowing that I am loved and that I am Love.”

 

Cut the Unseen Cords

There are unseen cords that attach when you meet someone. It is as though they physically attach to you. Some are good attachments and you feel positive and lifted up by the relationship – sometimes even a back and forth energetic exchange. Those are the healthy ones!

But… then there are those who drain us, literally, of our energy and we feel exhausted after talking to or being with them.

A shaman taught me how to detach these cords. Close your eyes and visualize the cords extending from your stomach area (which is via the sacral chakra). Then visualize yourself cutting the cords. In your mind, visualize yourself using a large pair of scissors, a flaming knife, sword or even a chain saw. Whatever makes you happy. Cut them like you mean it. Then, visualize yourself taking back all parts of your energy from their (whoever they may be) portion of the cord. Put your energy back on and in you. Then, send their cord portion back to them. I visualize them burning back to the others … to really cut them off. Offer forgiveness to any person that comes to your mind while you do this. You are not being mean, it is necessary. Then visualize your opening (from where the cords came) being sealed back up with unconditional love.

I have seen this done with people using real tools like a knife (uh, made me very nervous) and learned you can use any physical object like a stone or anything meaningful to you. While doing this physical, in the air, cutting, you can scream out to this person that: ‘you are finished, you are done, you are mad, you are cutting them from you’. It is very healing.

You do not have to sever every cord with every person, some are built on love – like your child or parent. Do this exercise as often as you feel necessary. I did it several times. The shaman said, some can be sticky and it may take a few times to release them completely. Every once in a while, do it again. I did it every day, then once a week, etc. at first. You’ll know what to do intuitively. I rarely feel the need for cord cutting now.

I started to notice that when I felt drained after talking to someone … I had to disconnect. After a while, it becomes obvious who drains you.Love bracelet as a daily reminder we are LOVED

 

Writing

You can write a letter to this person and tell them that you are done, disconnected and finished with the emotional attachment they formed on you. You can then burn it for finality.

 

NOW FOR THE HEALING …

 

EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Tapping

I offer this affirmation for those who have been traumatized:

Even though terrible things may have happened to me, and my impulse may be to suppress undesirable thoughts, emotions, or bodily sensations, I am loveable and acceptable just as I am. Even though I may feel devalued by traumatic occurrences, I know at my core that I am whole and good, and I now choose to lovingly align myself with that truth.

 

Protect Yourself

Each day or as often as you feel the need, visualize a shield around you. I visualize a golden light. Say, “The golden light surrounds and protects me. No harm can come through my light, only goodness.”

 

Write the Story You Want to Hear

Now, focus on you. Write down how you want your life to be. Write things that only state the positive – use NO negative words/thoughts. For example: Say- ‘Only loving people are in my life’. Don’t say- ‘No mean men in my life’. Say- ‘I know what I want in my life’. Don’t say- ‘I am a lost soul’.

The reason I tell you this is because: the story you tell about you, becomes you. Tell the story you want to have in your life (even if it sounds crazy or outrageous now). Say things like- I have lots of friends who love and respect me. There are nice people everywhere. People do nice things for me every day and I accept them with gratitude. The men or women I meet love and respect me. I am confident in everything I do. I have courage. I am open to receive loving relationships.love wave

 

Be Inspired

Read or listen to the teachings of The Secret (Rhonda Byrnes) (and any of the authors featured) as well as Esther & Jerry Hicks writings on the teachings of Abraham-Hicks and the Law of Attraction. Very cool info.

 

Visualize the New You

Make a vision board – it is a poster collage filled with things you want to see in your life. If you are a visual person, this is a great reminder of what you want out of life. It is fun to do. I add stuff all the time. You can make a paper one with pictures clipped from magazines. The website Pinterest.com is a great place to do this online. Or you can copy pictures and paste them on a document you keep on your computer. The more you look at the vision board, the better. I have a couple. It is a fun reminder of what you want in life. And – when you look at it months later and see that some of the things have come to fruition… well…. life can be fabulous.

To Love Yourself…

Love.Heart in Hand-LOVE Thyself

Love thyself.

Love myself first.

I love me.

Look in the mirror. Can you say, “I love you” to yourself?

Seriously. Look in the mirror and try it. Don’t be shy. Say it like you mean it.

It took me a long time too. If you practice it enough, it becomes easier. You get more confident. You like yourself more.

You love yourself.

As women, we are taught to give, give, give and to constantly take care of others. It was hard for me to stop living that way. (Like it was a bad habit, it was hard to break.) When you give, you should be able to receive. I was always being told to be open to receive, especially by my open-minded and psychic friends. (Love you all.)

When we receive, we allow others to feel the joy of giving.

Last summer, I started using the mantra: I am open to receive.

When we receive, we allow others to feel the joy of giving.

Now that the summer solstice is upon us, I know it has been a year that I have consciously practiced receiving… and by doing so loving me.

It is really about loving yourself first. I know, it sounds selfish… but it truly is not. When you love yourself, then it will become easy for others to love you too.

You see, by being open to receive is just another way of being open to receiving love.

Yes, love for you … for your own self. Everyone wants that.

Children Can Easily See Angels … more Proof

Today I was going through my daughter’s old drawings and came across one that caught my attention. A lot. I had to share.

My daughters loving spirit

She had drawn an angel and told me that, this was her “Loving spirit (one of 12 or 13) that came to her to make her feel better and filled her heart with LOVE.”

I am so glad I wrote it down as she told me.

Kids say the most interesting things. My daughter certainly did then and still amazes me today. (I love you darling.)

At this point in my life I was not in touch with how angels and spirit guides are always here for us. I am sure I wrote it thinking, “Aw, that’s sweet.” And then did not think about it again. As I read it now, I am sure she was seeing an angel. She drew this when she was only four years old.

You can see for yourself that her drawing has angel wings and a halo of light around a heart above the crown chakra. It looks like they may be singing too.

I showed it to my daughter again. She said, “Look, see they even have a third eye too.”

WOW. She was four and could not only see this, but knew that they filled her heart with love. The amazing part is that this angel was only one of the 12 or 13 that came to her… for her.

Kids are soooo connected with Heaven, that angels, spirit guides and passed over loved ones are easily seen and can be talked to by children.

I obviously dismissed this experience as just an interesting drawing with an interesting description at that time in my life. I had been living for many years without much faith in anything and I know at this point in my life I was just beginning to understand that there is so much more. I now know that we are so incredibly loved by our angels, spirit guides and passed over loved ones it is incomprehensible.

PLEASE remember that all babies and children are so close to having just been in Heaven that seeing angels and being able to talk to them is so easy for them. Please, please, please support them and acknowledge this true God-given ability they all (we all) have so that it stays with them throughout their life. How wonderful to feel supported everyday and to know it.

I know I will be reviewing both my children’s drawings to see what other treasures I can find.

In the meantime, my daughter remembers this experience and offered to redraw this angel. I will post it when she does.

Love to you all,

xoxox

In Time … In the NOW

Time.

It’s elusive.

Wished for.

Asked for.

Yet, not really there.

It is so relative.

You want more time when you are having fun.

(Of course.)

You dread the time when you wait or have to endure something that is boring

(Who doesn’t.)

Time nearly stands still as each nanosecond is painstakingly drawn out when something scary or life threatening happens

This relative thing called time moves along in its synchronistic ways

Moment to moment

Connect each second to second

And then the minute to the next minute

Hours soon go by

Days

Weeks

Years

And soon, a millennium passes us by

As time marches on

And on

And on

A moment in Time

So take some time to try living in the now.

NOW – is literally focusing completely with all of your senses in what you are doing right now. The way that chair feels as you sit here. The temperature of the air you breathe in and out. Your heart beating. The smell of baking cookies in the air. The sound of music playing in the distance. The words that you read, the font being used, your eyes focusing on the text, all being processed quickly by your brain. All in perfect harmony.

All in this time right now.

Love to you all.

A Declaration of Self Esteem

I was given this …. um … I won’t say, since then you will know my age. I feel 25, so we will go with that. I was given this a very long time ago, way before I truly found myself (my whole self). I was going through a very difficult time in my life at that point.The Garden of Adonis by John Dickson Batten 1887. Angels always watch over us.

I came across this declaration again while organizing paperwork recently, so I thought I would share it with you. I was given many other helpful things that I will soon share.

I am not sure who to acknowledge as the author, since none was given, so I send my thanks out to the one who wrote it.

I send my love out to the woman who gave it to me while I stayed there. I wish I could remember her name.

I can hear the words that Morgana says in the movie Little Mermaid II. She exclaims, “Say it loud. Say it Proud,” to little Melody as Melody turns into a mermaid and becomes her true self.

With heartfelt love to all who read this …. for all the dear, sweet Humans (as my friend, Sheri would say) who share this Earth with me, this is for you to declare.

 

My Declaration of Self Esteem I am ME.

In all the world, there is no one else exactly like ME.

There are persons who have some parts like ME, but no on adds up exactly like ME.

Therefore, everything that comes out  of ME is authentically mine because I alone choose it.

I own everything about ME – my body, including everything it does; my mind, including all its thoughts and ideas; my eyes, including the images of all they behold; my feelings, whatever they may be – anger, joy, frustrations, love, disappointment, excitement; my mouth, and all the words that come out of it, polite, sweet or rough, correct or incorrect; my voice, loud or soft; and all my actions, whether they be to others or to myself. I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears.

I own all my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes.

Because I own all of ME, I can become intimately acquainted with ME.

By so doing I can love ME and be friendly with ME in all my parts. I can then make it possible for all of ME to work in my best interests.

I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle ME, and other aspects that I do not know.

But as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for the solutions to the puzzles and for ways to find out more about ME.

However, I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is ME. This is authentic and represents where I am at that moment in time. When I review later how I looked and sounded, what I said and did, and how I thought and felt, some parts may turn out to be unfitting. I can discard that which is unfitting and keep that which proved fitting, and invent something new for that which I discarded. I can see, hear, feel, think, say and do.

I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order of the world of people and things outside of ME.

I own ME, and therefore I can engineer ME.

I am me and I am okay.

One Feather from an Angel = Instant Mood Adjustment

The other day, I had a bad moment.

I let a little irritation get me down.One Little White Feather from an Angel We all have them once in a while.

I let a little frustration spiral out into other negative emotions, which begets other negative emotions and on and on.

It feels bad to be irritated. I would much rather be happy.

I am driving … well … sitting in traffic trying to drive through downtown (during rush hour… not always a smart choice, but I was heading towards my weekly intuition class so I was looking forward to the destination). I am slowly moving through a section of downtown where if you do not pay attention, you will end up on a highway in the total wrong direction … crossing over two lanes of traffic to the left … merging right … crossing back over two more lanes ….  trying to get in the left lane so I can enter one of our tunnels here in Pittsburgh … you get the picture. Not an easy drive.

Meanwhile, I am sitting there in traffic feeling bad for myself, trying to find something positive to bring me out of this icky mood.

At this point in the drive I am on a bridge over one of our rivers … just sitting and waiting in traffic. I worry I will be late to class. I hear the roar of cars drive on the overpass above me. I wonder why we are sitting still. I look around and think of all the concrete they must have used to build all of this.

I start flipping channels on the radio to try to find a song … any song … they (the radio stations) know we sit in traffic at this time of day … there are so many commercials!

Then, something wondrous happens. A little white feather floats by, just in front of my car. It wisps around.   It seems like minutes pass by in slow motion, although I am sure it was mere seconds.

The feather floats directly in front of my path – going from right to left across all four lanes … only to dance on a little wind and float up over the side.

POOF! Then, it was gone.

Just then, a song starts playing and I hear the words blare, “The Best Day of My Life.”

My lips form a smile as my scrunched up face softens. I am instantly happier. You see, I know when I see a random feather, it is a sign from above. It is a sign from an angel letting me know I am loved.

A simple reminder.

Just like that, I feel better. I let out a little laugh and wonder why was I so irritated and how did I let someone else decide how I feel.

I brush it of and start to sing the song.

Life does get better. Just … like … that.

One feather and the perfect timing of a song.

The traffic starts to move.

How Can I Help my Child Understand Metaphysics?

Guest blog post by Kim Aluise, Intuitive

Growing up Positively

Growing up Positively

Many people, once they have begun to understand the metaphysical ideal, ask this question. I think it first helps to understand the meaning of metaphysics, and being metaphysical. This can be difficult, because it is often not defined well. If you do a search right now, you will find more than one definition. To the best of my ability, I would define it as a philosophy, where one would seek to know and understand the hows and the whys of the human existence. I think at the core, it is of importance for anyone, whether metaphysically minded, or not, to understand “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.” Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

I use this quote often and certainly with all of my clients.

Small children are born, like all of us, with this knowledge. If you have young children under the age of 7, the concept of where we came from is easy for them to grasp. They, unlike adults, remember and welcome talk of all things metaphysical. Never push a child with questions and answers, just speak very matter of fact. When they talk of “imaginary” friends, inquire about them, acknowledge how wonderful it is that a friend has come to enjoy in their day with them. Encourage them to be the human that they intended to be when they came here. It is often far too easy to “keep up with the Joneses and worry that your child is not “like the other kids”. As a parent, you are to offer guidance, but never push against the inner wisdom and knowledge of the age-old spirit that resides in that tiny body. Those little humans are spirits as old as the beginning of time, and they will happily co-exist with you in your joy.

As for older children, the pre-teens, and teens that have not been raised in the metaphysical ways of thinking, you will likely need a bit of a different approach. Some humans are just naturally more in tune with the spirit world in which we came from, and will go back to one day. Others, for their own spiritual reasons, are more disconnected from it. It’s important to lead by example. Speak kindly, and be open to non-judgmental conversations. While all the years of our human experience can have challenges, the teen years can be the most difficult in my opinion. They are a time when we feel we have no control, and we must answer to others for everything. Show your teen, or pre-teen that you acknowledge the unique, loving, wonderful spirit that they are.

No matter the age of your child, express to them what we in the metaphysical world know to be true. The spirit world is not counting your success by the number of years you live, the grades you get in school, or the objects you own, but by the joy that you have in this lifetime. That is it, just the joy. If you have joy, then all good things will come to you.

 

 

On Being Too Nice and Giving Too Much

On being too nice….

I was inspired to write this poem after reading Doreen Virtues book ‘Assertiveness for Earth Angels’.

This poem is dedicated to those women out there who give, give and give. For those who put themselves last. For those who depend upon another person’s happiness for their own happiness. For those who are learning to put themselves first, to do things that make them happy and those learning to be open to receive.

I send my love to you..

The Rag Doll by Karen Kubicko

“The rag doll has a permanent smile sewn on her face
Always appearing happy
She lets you touch her, squeeze her and hold her without complaint
Inside, her stuffing is turning moldy and grey
Yet her smile continues
She listens intently to all you say
Hears all the harsh words that you pour out
Keeping her lips sealed
Unable to open her tightly stitched smile
Day after day passes
Slowly
She is easily forgotten
Pushed outside in the cold, bitter rain
Her little piece of love
Her heart-shaped piece of material
Long ago placed inside
Begins to be crumpled
Broken
Emotionally thrown about
Torn and tattered
Finally, it becomes guarded
Protected
She becomes stronger
Tired of the loneliness
She musters up all her courage
Takes a deep breath
Rises to the challenge of knowing ones true self
The rag doll limps outside
Knowing that there is more
There is unconditional love
Somewhere
Out there”

Children Can Heal from Remembering a Past Life Too

My daughter was 3, going on 4 years of age at the time I found the book, Children’s Past Lives by Carol Bowman many years ago.At the top of the hill

At this time in her life, she was very insistent upon being called ‘Baby’ instead of her given name. She also said she had no intentions of turning 4 years old and wanted to stay 3 to the point of tears, especially if there was any discussion on either subject. From a parent’s perspective, it was very confusing and as a 3-year-old, she could not explain why.

Following Carol’s advice, I simply asked my daughter what she thought would happen if she turned 4. She went into a very elaborate story (for a 3 year-old) talking about a friend of hers who lived up on a hill. She was laughing so hard remembering and retelling this, it was uncanny.

Then she got very serious and a little nervous. She spoke about walking in the woods and falling on a slippery rock. As she spoke, she started touching her head (where she had two small round strawberry birthmarks for the first few months of her life) and said she was hit with a ‘mean rock’ on her head. She was very emotional about the whole thing.

What was interesting and enlightening, is that a few days later, she was fine with turning 4 years old and decided she was fine not being called ‘Baby’ anymore. I could not believe it. She had been very adamant about not growing up and being called ‘Baby’ for as long as she was 3. It was quite a noticeable change in her. I truly believe she remembered a past life or two and they definitely made a change in her life, albeit a small one, but meaningful. It still amazes me when I think of this day. We were just standing there in the kitchen chatting, like it was a normal everyday conversation… then healing happens.

When she talked about a mean rock hitting her in the head, I immediately thought she was talking about being shot. It was the motion and the way she described it that made me think this way. The two strawberry birthmarks on the top of her head (that she had for a few months) looked like small bullet holes. Interestingly, she has a birthmark on the back of her head that almost looks like an exit wound from a bullet. It is still there though, now hidden by her hair.

How Children Can Inspire Us to Learn Metaphysics

In the past life classes I teach and in the radio interviews I have done, I always talk about my daughter. She is the one who inspired me to learn about metaphysics in the first place. (Thank you, sweetheart.) While she was the one who instigated this learning and healing that I have gone through since starting to learn and heal from past life regression, she also has healed through remembering a past life too.'The Great Love' by Robert Indiana

Here is the story of how it began for me…

After nursing my daughter and laying her in bed late one night, I awoke to see her being held by a man dressed in robes while holding her sweetly. He was swaying softly and looking down at her lovingly. I looked away and back and then he was gone. (For more on this story, here is the link.) I immediately checked on my daughter, who was sleeping just as I had left her. I thought it was very cool and I was actually excited about having seen a ghost, but a little freaked out that they were holding my baby.

The next morning, I called the local psychic that often spoke on our local radio station’s morning show.

A few weeks later, my sister and I went to see Mr. Charles, the local psychic. Of course, I brought my daughter since I was nursing her… she went everywhere with me. My sister watched her in his waiting room while I talked to the psychic.

I nervously walked in to see him. Mr. Charles said that my daughter has a very strong third eye and that I needed to learn about these things to help her in life. The alternative would not be good he said, shaking his head. In my mind, I am fretting and thinking, “What the @#$ is a third eye?” while he talks on about the possibilities of who may have been holding her, most likely her spirit guide.

As he talked, Mr. Charles looked to his left and then to his right thanking spirits for giving him the information. I see nothing standing there. I have to be honest, I was definitely a little skeptical at this point in my life. I am sure he could tell I felt this way. I listen to all he says anyway, trying to understand and be open-minded.

Once home, the first thing I do is to look up the meaning of the third eye and still do not understand. I find some books on being psychic and get a little scared at what I read. It was all too much for me at the time.

Over the next few years, I looked at a book here or there to try again. Nothing seemed to resonate. A few years later, I found a book called Children’s Past Lives by Carol Bowman in a metaphysical bookstore. As soon as I saw this book, I thought, “Oh, it is about children… I need to learn for my daughter…maybe this will help me understand something more on metaphysics.” I had no idea that this book would inspire me to learn more and more and then more.

The Quiet of the Soft Snow Falls Gently

It is snowing big, beautiful flakes of soft snow outside today!

I love to watch the snow fall gently from the sky.

It is quiet.

Serene.

It blankets the Earth.

It makes it appear like a large blank canvas …

just waiting for splashes of color to be added to the landscape.

Peaceful snow
