Angels Surround Us: Stories of Mystery and Hope

Whether you are young are old, chances are you’ve experienced an Angelic encounter in your life. The Angel may send you the right person at the right moment to get you out of a difficult situation. You may hear a voice in your head warning you to remain vigilant, or you may be told that everything will be alright.

Angels are not bound by a material body like we are and so they can move super fast, the speed of “thought”…much faster than Superman. So if you ask your Guardian Angel to help someone else out, they will be back at your side before you realize.http://www.philipkosloski.com/5-facts-you-need-to-know-about-your-guardian-angel/

The Internet is full of stories detailing encounters with Angels and Guard20151228_143154-1ian angels who have saved people in dangerous situations. Here are just a few stories that you may find interesting. To read more, simply click on the link.

If you are looking for inspirational stories about Angels or Angelic interventions, the website www.angels-online.com has many stories on Angel encounters. I came across a story from 2005 called The Fire, which details a woman’s experience with a house fire. As she ran through the house, she heard a voice telling her that her son had already run to the neighbors to get help. Three weeks later, a little boy that lived 45 minutes away recounted the exact sequence of events and said he had seen an Angel carry them to safety.

CONNECTING WITH YOUR ANGEL

At times, people wonder if they have a Guardian Angel or another Angel presence protecting them. I believe that each of us has an Angel that is “assigned” to us to help us in times of need. So how do we connect? The first thing to do is to ask. The website http://askanangel.org/angel-stories/ recommends the following steps when connecting with Angels.

  • Ask for help
  • Realize yourself as fully worthy of Angelic assistance
  • Connect with your inner child
  • Hand everything over to the Angels
  • Express Appreciation and Gratitude
  • Know that it is done
  • Act quickly on the guidance you receive

ARE ANGELS AROUND YOU NOW?

You may not see a large white light and a pair of wings, but there are other signs that may give you an indication that an Angel is nearby. There are a lot of ways to 20151228_143137-1-1tell – some people may feel a warm presence or warmth around them in an otherwise cool room, or they might hear spoken words, there may be a spark of light, or the person may feel a brush against the shoulder, they may smell a scent that doesn’t belong there (such as chocolate or flowers), or see a bouncing ball of light, or a perfect white feather before them. Oftentimes, the air may tingle, or there may be a tingling sensation down the spine or on the top of the head as well as an overwhelming sense of peace.

If you look back in time you may recall an event or two where you wonder even now how you got out of the situation alive. Perhaps it was an Angel helping you that day?

Take time to be thankful for the little things in life that have brought peace and happiness to you throughout the year as we reflect on 2015. And take a moment to thank your Angel for protecting you! On an amusing note, I’ve concluded writing this article at 2:22 p.m., and according to sacredscribesangelnumbers.blogspot.com, 222 is a sign from your Angels to have Faith and Trust in your Divine Life Purpose and Remain Positive.

Wishing You Many Blessings in 2016!

Does Knowledge of the Future Change the Outcome?

If you know an experience is ahead of you can you avoid it? Maybe yes and maybe no. As a psychic I listen to the “small, still voice within,” as often as possible. Recently, I was given a 15-minute heads up that someone was going to run into my car. Despite evasive maneuvers on my part, my car was hit. Advance knowledge may have resulted in less extensive damage, but the outcome was the same.

I ran through possible reasons for the wreck: Was I thinking negative thoughts thereby bringing negativity onto myself? Nope. Had I recently directed negative energy towards another person (KARMA)? Nope.

I came to the conclusion that sometimes events just happen.

If you’ve been through a traumatic experience and have asked yourself, “Why me?” “Why now?” The answer may simply be that you must go through the experience as part of your life progression. It’s certainly understandable that you may be angry, frustrated or sad, so by all means feel those feelings but then let them go. Rather than blame others or beat yourself up with negative self-talk, shift your focus and ask: “What can I learn from this experience?”

Oftentimes, the answer may be something simple. An experience may illustrate the need for greater patience, allow you to see the value of the present moment (Whew! I’m alive!), or encourage you to shift thoughts towards an “attitude of gratitude,” recognizing that while events happen from time to time you still have good people in your life and fun experiences that bring you joy.

Other times, the life lesson may be unclear. If that’s the case, it may be best to accept the experience for what it is so you can move on to better things.

Some of God’s Greatest Gifts are Unanswered PrayersGarth Brooks

When we focus on something we truly want and ask or pray for it, but the universe fails to deliver as requested, it may be that having that thing (improved health, wealth, lover, job, car, and new home) was not meant to be. Instead, your life path may involve other praying childpeople, places and things that you do not know about and have yet to experience. It’s possible that the people you will meet and future life experiences you will have could not happen had you been granted those wishes.

Be Mindful of Your Thoughts
You probably know of someone who has experienced a tragedy in life but is able to push past it to accomplish great things. At the same time, another friend or acquaintance may become stuck in the “would have, could have, should have” thinking cycle and just never seems to bounce back.

One way to move past a tragic event is to be mindful of our thoughts. This can be done through meditation or shifting focus to the present – even if it’s a simple task such as washing the dishes or enjoying a cup of tea. Certainly, those that have experienced a tragedy think about it from time to time, but they don’t dwell on the event or let it define the future.

Observing your thoughts and acknowledging them is the first step towards greater self-awareness and change. Renowned Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh in his book, “The Miracle of Mindfulness,” writes about mindfulness and meditation:

“We are both the mind and the observer of the mind. Therefore, chasing away or dwelling on any thought isn’t the important thing. The important thing is to be aware of the thought.”

The benefits of mindfulness are numerous. In a 2013 study, Wendy Hasenkamp, Ph.D., discovered that those who practiced meditation had better focus and less anxiety and depression. For more on the study, click here.

Life Lessons Learned from the Experiences of Others

Why doesn’t he change? Why does she ask for my advice and not take it? Why can’t she see she is making the same mistake again? Why does he insist on being so mean?

Ever ponder these questions?  Perhaps it’s time to step back and look at these situations in a different light. Take time to reflect by asking yourself: What am I learning from this experience? What area of my life does this situation highlight, and how can I address it? Is this a life lesson, and what should I do about it?

arguing coupleRealize that people choose their own path. While it may not be the path you would take, it’s the path they have chosen to take, so it is the right path for them. If someone is mean to you, realize it’s not about you (unless the individual is simply providing a verbal reflection of your own self-doubts or internal struggle). Listen to what your heart is telling you so you can learn from the experience. Accept the new knowledge you have gained and move on. We cannot change others or what they may think about us, only our reactions and the way we think about them.

The frustrating people with which you interact may just be the opportunity you need to learn acceptance, self-understanding and unconditional love.

What is the Right Path for You?
When you realize you’ve reached the pinnacle of success or a dead end and wonder what it is you should be doing next, look inward instead of outward and ask yourself: “What do I love to do?” Think about your day … when are you the happiest? The most motivated? The most satisfied? Be honest and realistic about the opportunity you are seeking. After all, it’s highly unlikely someone will pay you to lay on the couch, eat popcorn and watch movies all day. Besides, that would become pretty boring after awhile.

Once you figure out what “it” is, declare what you want to the universe by describing your specific desire aloud, and then watch for the signs, as these are the instructions you will need to make your dream happen. You may see advertisements pop up which suggest classes you could take, a passage from a story online may pop out at you, or you may get a call from a friend requesting your help. You may be asked to volunteer, which could place you in the right place at the right time for the opportunity you are seeking.

“Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work.” – Steve Jobs, Founder of Apple Computer.

You Were Placed on This Earth to Fulfill a Lifetime of Joy Not Sorrow
Does fear keep you from doing what you love to do or being who you want to be? Then find the things you truly love in what you are doing NOW and keep your focus on the prize.  When people transition from this world, one of the first things they realize is the amount of time they’ve wasted worrying about things that didn’t happen. In the afterlife they realize: worrying is a waste of time, life is about unconditional love for everyone, and there is true joy in being free of pain/sorrow.

Ask yourself: “How does this worry benefit me?” Reposition the worry into something more positive such as: “This downtime or pattern of thought provides the perfect opportunity for me to gain perspective and insight so I can move forward.”

“Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.” 
― Jim Morrison, The Doors

The key is not to allow fear to rule your life and decisions. Remember when you were in elementary school and worried about tests you had to take or whether other kids in the class liked you or not? Do the fear-based decisions you made then impact your life today? Probably not. While it’s healthy to analyze situations in order to proceed to the best possible outcome, realize too, that life is designed to throw you a curve ball every now and again so you can learn and grow.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. You’re playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” 
― Marianne WilliamsonA Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”

Do you want to change careers or scarier still–start your own business–but you are afraid of taking the first step because of fear of failure? You are certainly not alone. Thankfully, there are a lot of methodologies out there to help you. Here’s a great article from Forbes magazine on ways to conquer the fear of failure: http://www.forbes.com/sites/glassheel/2013/04/23/5-ways-to-conquer-your-fear-of-failure/.

Oftentimes, it’s better to try and fail than not to try at all. Many great inventors realize this fact, take the time to learn from the mistakes then try again.

Thomas Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. Instead of viewing these experiments in light as failures, he told a reporter, “I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”

Take the time to look at situations from a different perspective–learn what you can–and see life’s little bumps in the road as a way to do it better the second time around.

What is My Life Purpose?

This is a question many of us ponder at one point or another in our lives.

There are many who believe that we enter into a sacred agreement/soul agreement with the Universe to accomplish specific goals on earth before we are born into this lifetime. One of the challenges we face is remembering what we promised to do in the first place. It may be that you agreed to bring certain people together, raise a family, make a discovery, or share knowledge locally or globally.

In this Abraham-Hicks YouTube video, the concept of the sacred agreement is explained.

Souls that reach out to us from the other side often exclaim that heaven is all about love, Angel-Cherub-with-Kitten-Garden-Statue-12-inch_37811not judgement, not anger – just love. Unconditional love for EVERYONE and not just for some. Those that have passed on tell us the true meaning of life is to love one another and all things.

Adrian P. Cooper, in his book Our Ultimate Reality, writes:

“To practice Unconditional Love is to see and love the Divine essence of absolutely everyone and everything without any exceptions, not only the superficial shell that is the temporal physical vehicle by which to experience earthly matter, but in particular the immortal Spirit within, the true image of God. You must know beyond any doubts in your very heart and Soul that everyone without exception, regardless of race, creed, culture, personality, individuality, characteristics and earthly status is an integral and equal aspect of God, our Divine creator who has given us all the precious gift of immortal life.”

true loveSo where to start? Why not set a date and make a pact with yourself to be kinder, more loving and less judgmental? After all, it’s not your role to judge the robber for robbing or the killer for killing another. It’s your job to live in harmony with others to the best of your ability while having the goal of reaching an ongoing state of unconditional love for all.

“Pure Unconditional Love is the very Energy behind all creation from the very beginning out of which God created and sustains the entire Universe in all spheres of life and reality; Pure Unconditional Love is therefore the very highest and most Divine expression of God.”

The Four Agreements
If jumping into the practice of experiencing Unconditional Love at all times is too challenging to conceive and achieve, consider another path to getting there. Consider instead The Four Agreements.

  1. Be impeccable with your word. (Say only what you mean in truth and love and avoid gossip.)
  2. Don’t take anything personally. (Be immune to the opinions of others.)
  3. Don’t make assumptions. (Ask questions and clearly express what you want.)
  4. Always do your best. (Always doing your best eliminates self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.)

While it’s challenging to keep all of the agreements all the time, making an effort in that direction can pay dividends. When you realize you’ve gone “off the wagon” and are filled with self-disappointment or self-loathing, simply acknowledge it and move on to the goal of personal freedom – freedom from self-judgement, anger and hate – to a state of love. If you are filled with anger over someone or something that was said, take time to be introspective. Ask yourself why do you feel this way? If you say, “but I need this because …,” ask yourself is this a real need or a perceived need. Is it a need of the soul or an external need for power or prestige? Authentic needs (such as being loved) are met by the universe and perceived needs (those that reside in the ego/personality) are met by obstacles and negative emotions. Ask yourself – what are my real needs? For more on the subject of The Four Agreements please refer to don Miguel Ruiz’s book The Four Agreements or visit www.toltecspirit.com.

Becoming Authentically Empowered
Experiencing unconditional love for all things allows you to take back your personal power and provides you a better understanding of your life’s purpose. In his book, The Seat of the Soul, Gary Zukav talks about the connection between personal power and health, saying that the “way of the heart is one of compassion and emotional perception.”

 “When energy leaves you in any way except in strength and trust, it cannot bring back to you anything but pain and discomfort. An authentically empowered human being, therefore, is a human being that does not release energy except in love and trust.”

So what does it mean to be authentically empowered?

  • Be humble and respond to the beauty of each soul and revere life in all of its forms.
  • Be content with the fulfillment of authentic needs.
  • Be who you are and avoid artificial standards (what you think others expect of you).
  • Find the joy of giving without reservation.
  • Forgive and release the baggage you carry from the experience and stop holding others responsible for the experience(s).
  • Stop complaining. Ask yourself, “Why am I sharing this? What do I hope to achieve?”
  • Be clear in your perceptions and thinking. With clarity you can learn through wisdom rather than through fear and doubt. Clarity helps you understand the causes and effects of behaviors and allows you to choose consciously. “Clarity evaporates fear.”
  • Live in a state of love. Bring harmony to others and show an active interest, concern and care for their well-being.

As you strive towards a state of authentic empowerment, your life’s purpose will begin to become much clearer, Zukav says:

“Whatever the task your soul has agreed to, whatever its contract with the Universe, all of the experiences in your life serve to awaken within you the memory of that contract, and to prepare you to fill it.”

So how do you know you are fulfilling your life’s purpose? Ask yourself, is what I am doing resonating with my heart and soul? Is my work satisfying, purposeful and fulfilling? Did the experiences I’ve gone through (even if there were perceived as being painful) provide further enlightenment and greater understanding? Did the experience/experiences help me reassess where I am and what I want to do in my heart of hearts?

“Let go. Trust. Create. Be who you are. The rest is up to your nonphysical Teachers and the Universe. Take your hands off the steering wheel and be able to say to the universe Thy Will Be Done.”

Becoming a Healthier Version of You

Can anger or negative thoughts influence your health? Or do you believe that factors outside Image of Paris Sculptureof you (stress, environmental issues) or inside of you (within your genetic code) cause illness to occur?

The answer may be a little of both. DNA within individual cells can mutate due to internal and external factors, which leads to a change in the way the cell acts.

Mutation is an inevitable and fundamental property of DNA: changes occur by chance when DNA is replicated and passed on to the next generation, and this process can be affected by factors in the environment. Fortunately, most changes have no effect whatsoever. A tiny fraction are harmful and can lead to cancer or genetic disease, and an even smaller proportion are actually beneficial, and provide the raw material for evolution. http://pub.nsfc.gov.cn/sficen/ch/reader/create_pdf.aspx?file_no=200901037&flag=1&journal_id=sficen

Thousands of changes occur to our DNA daily, but for the most part, mutation is corrected through a series of processes called DNA repair. In fact, less than one in 1000 changes in DNA result in mutation. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK26879/

The Mind/Body Connection

While the medical industry has not come out directly and said that your state of mind has a direct impact on your health, many acknowledge the mind/body connection.

“It is not a question of whether an illness is physical or emotional, but how much of each,” Dr. F. Dunbar, author of Mind and Body.

Does Anger Cause Heart Disease?

If you believe you are chronically ill or you believe you have a propensity towards a certain disease or condition, you will.

In an observational study of nearly 100,000 women, those with a pessimistic, cynical disposition developed more coronary heart disease, had more heart attacks, and died earlier than optimists. Cynical women were also more likely to develop cancer. http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2012/02/do-negative-emotions-stress-and-anxiety-lead-to-heart-disease/251540/

A Healthier State of Being Begins with a Healthier State of Mind

Lotus positionThe first step in your path to better health is to eliminate the stress factors in your life that cause you to feel angry. You are probably saying, “Easy for YOU to say!” Here’s the thing, if you can learn to react differently to these situations, it eliminates the “fight or flight Stretch syndrome,” (sympathetic nervous system) and creates less stress on the body. Instead of screaming at other drivers who have cut you off on the highway, why not try some deep breathing instead, or sing a song? Remember, reactions and feelings begin inside your brain, which creates a chemical reaction inside your body. A happy or relaxed state of mind causes the parasympathetic nervous system to engage, and the body can then begin to heal itself.

Dr. Lissa Rankin, MD, author of Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself, and The Fear Cure, breaks down the self-healing process into six steps:

  1. Believe you can heal yourself.
  2. Find the right support.
  3. Listen to your body and your intuition.
  4. Diagnose the root causes of the illness.
  5. Write the prescription for yourself
  6. Surrender attachment to outcomes

Appreciating the Present and Defining the Future

Earth from Nasa NASA satellite mosaic of Earth

Sometimes we look back on our lives and can see the milestones, the turning points, where we made a decision that created the track we are now on. Ever look back at that moment and say, “What if? What if I had chosen that job, taken that trip, accepted that invitation?”

Do you realize that when you are in the present moment you are actually experiencing the past? For example, when you look at a page in a book, it takes a nanosecond for your eye to register the words on the page. So the moment you see the words on the page, you are seeing the words from some point in the past.

Another example: When a group of artists gather around a studio and simultaneously draw a still life, each image is different. That’s because the artists see the objects from their own unique perspective, drawing from their own set of experiences, based on their own capabilities (how they depict what they see) and ideas as to what the fruit should look like at a particular moment in time.

“Since no brain is the same, every person will have their own limits of time perception and their own sphere of now. In fact, every brain, be it biological or mechanical (light-sensitive detecting device), has a different processing time and will have its own sphere of now; each one will have a distinctive perception of reality. “ – The Island of Knowledge: The Limits of Science and the Search for Meaning by Marcelo Gleiser

So if the present is actually the past, that means we can change the future, doesn’t it? Instead of dreading what’s ahead (fearing the future), why not create what you want instead? In her book, Future Lives: Discovering and Understanding Your Destiny, Gloria Chadwick writes:

“If you could pull the future into the present, what would you do with what you learned and how would it affect you? What would you bring back from the future as a gift to yourself in the present? What corresponding changes would ripple through the past, present and future? … Look into future lives to observe your soul patterns and to see the talents and abilities you have, then weave them into the present and the past.”

Granted, we cannot change the past, but at the same time, the past is in fact, behind us, and should no longer define our present reality. Forgive yourself and forgive those that have found fault in your actions, thoughts and deeds, then redefine your view of those past experiences. They are your personal experiences, so it’s no one’s business how you view them. Each person sees a situation from their own perspective anyway, so there is no right or wrong way to view the past.

So how do you redefine the future? Start with what you know. Take a moment to list your positive attributes, i.e.,  the talents that you were given in this life. Are you a writer, an artist, a poet, a dancer, a chef? Are you a great listener? Place the list in a place where you can reflect upon it regularly. After a while, you will come to realize that you are as unique and beautiful as a snowflake. Appreciate the “you in you.” No one else is quite like you, and that is something to be proud of. Then visualize how you could use those talents in your life to make it better.

Louise L. Hay, in her book, You Can Heal Your Life, writes:

“In the infinity of life where I am, all is perfect, whole and complete. My life is ever new. Each moment of my life is new and fresh and vital. I use my affirmative thinking to create exactly what I want. This is a new day. I am a new me. I think differently. I speak differently. I act differently. Others treat me differently. My new world is a reflection of my new thinking. It is a joy and a delight to plant new seeds, for I know these seeds will become my new experiences. All is well in my world.”

Empathic Challenges for the Nurturing Soul

Are you a naturally giving person? Spiritually attuned? A nurturer? Do you have difficulty in crowds because you seem to be tuning into the feelings of others rather than your own?

If so, you may be an empath. Empaths feel everything around them – including the moods of others.

If empaths are around peace and love, their bodies assimilate these and flourish. Negativity, though, often feels assaultive, exhausting. Thus, they’re particularly easy marks for emotional vampires, whose fear or rage can ravage empaths.
Dr. Judith Orloff http://www.drjudithorloff.com

So how can you tell you are an empath? And what can you do about it once you have the knowledge? Here is a 30-point list published by themindunleashed.org.

signs you are an empath

If you have checked yes to at least 3 of the items on the above list, chances are you are an empath. No worries, as it is not the end of the world for you, but a great starting point for the future.  Rather than stop the flow of information coming to you, channel it instead. Or in the case of an energy vampire – give the feelings back.

  • Get grounded. Plant your feet on the ground and picture roots tying your feet deep into the soil.
  • Give yourself time to check in with nature.
  • Give yourself some alone time.
  • Channel positive energy through you to the people in your path.
  • Assign a color system to alert you as to whether the feelings are yours or someone else’s.

Assigning a color system:

I have found that the color code system has been the most helpful for me. My own information is painted purple. While my family comes in as blue. Other people’s stuff comes in as yellow from strangers and green from friends. With this information, I can then make an informed decision as to what I need to do with this energy. I usually, just send it “return to sender”, attached with love and light (or repainted in purple love).
                                                                                                                                                   Trevor Lewis

And a final thought on keeping your empathic energy in the best possible light.

“You are a conduit of Divine Energy. Channel it and send it out to the people in your environment. This is important – if you send your own energy out it will be exhausting for you. It will drain you and weaken you even more to let in their energy when your defenses are down. You are only a conduit for Universal Light. Visualize it coming in through the top of your head, your crown chakra, and out from your heart (and, optionally, all your other chakras) to them. The flow of Divine Energy through you and out to your environment will help to push their energy away from you. In addition, just as a water pipe cannot channel water without getting wet, you will be energized by the flow of Divine Energy through you. … Tell your subconscious that this is what you want to be doing 24/7 and then let go.”

Healing with Color – Tips for Self and Home

It’s been a long winter this year, and some find it hard to break out of the winter blahs and into the glory of spring. Sometimes, a little color can help. Your body is an energy system. You can slow down your heart rate or speed it up, simply by getting centered, breathing deeply and visualizing color. You can also train yourself to detect colors by taking your hand and placing it over a “color” card to determine if it’s a cool or warm color. With practice you can determine the nuances of each color.  You can also work with your hands to visualize sending out the color through your hands to help someone or even yourself.

Healing a Headache
Visualize the color yellow then take your hands and place them over your temples than place one hand on your forehead and the other on the back of the head. Picture the color yellow streaming through your hands.

Everything in moderation, as the saying goes. And so it applies to color as well. Too much of one color can have a debilitating effect.

In Ted Andrews’ book, Healing with Color, he talks about the basics of different colors, and how they can impact the human body.

  • White – Awakens creativity
  • Black – a protective color, it can be used to ground and calm extremely sensitive individuals. Use black in conjunction with white.
  • Red– stimulates. It energizes the base chakra. It energizes the blood and helps with colds and mucus ailments. Too much red can be over stimulating.
  • Orange – the color of joy and wisdom. It stimulates feelings of sociability. Orange can assist healing the spleen, pancreas, stomach, intestines and adrenals.
  • Yellow – stimulates the mental faculties. It stimulates the solar plexus. It reawakens enthusiasm for life. Helps treat depression and can benefit digestive issues.
  • Green – balances energies. Can be used to increase sensitivities and compassion. It has a calming effect for inflamed conditions of the body.
  • Blue – is cooling and relaxing. It quiets energies and has an antiseptic quality.

Shifting Energy In Your Home: The Art of Feng Shui
Sometimes the home can feel stuffy. Air seems to stagnate and there is no energy flow. Changes can be made by introducing color. Feng Shui is an anccolor wheelient Chinese art used to balance energy and create harmony in the home. Depending on how your home is positioned (does the front door of your home point East, West, North or South?) will determine how rooms should be decorated and how they should be painted. While it may seem odd that a darkened hallway should be painted orange, you will be surprised at the joy you will experience with this delightful color. Gray is a great color for an office because it energizes the individual working in it. An easy-to-read overview on Feng Shui can be found here: http://fengshui.about.com/od/fengshuicures/qt/fengshuicolor.htm. If you have not introduced Feng Shui into your environment, I highly recommend it. It’s fun to try new colors and room layouts to change the energy of your home. One tip worth considering: if you have a long hallway that has a door at the end, hang a crystal at the entry point. The reason is energy gathers at the entry point and shoots full speed to the end of the hall. Years ago, I had moved into a refurbished house and noticed a long dark hallway. I thought “this hallway needs a crystal.” When I looked down, I noticed that the floor was buckled. I was told an earthquake (this did not occur in California but Georgia!) occurred and damaged the wood floor in the hallway.  Take a look around your home and see if there are any long hallways that could benefit from a crystal to break up the energy.

To enhance energy flow: fans are good for moving energy as are pets (the ones that run around, not the ones that lay around), wind chimes can imply air flow, and there are other remedies as well. Welcome spring with a splash of new color and energy flow with yourself and your environment.

Death is Nothing at All

A friend’s mother passed away today. She died shortly after being diagnosed with inoperable cancer at 2:22 p.m., a time of significance in the parlance of Angel Numbers. She had fulfilled her soul’s mission, and the angels called her home.

Some believe that when we die we simply leave the body behind and become spirit – going back to the source energy from which we’ve come. Other’s believe that we are called home to heaven, and that’s where we stay. Dr. Duncan MacDougall conducted experiments on the dying and determined that as a person passed there was a detectable loss in weight  of 21 grams; he called it the soul.

I believe that some choose to leave this plane of existence behind and literally go to another level, never looking back. Others who have passed learn quickly how to move among the levels of consciousness or planes of existence. Still others who have experienced trauma in death get lost along the way. Many realize who they can contact to get help, should they seek it, to cross to the other side.

Loved ones will sometimes send little reminders that they are still watching over us – it could be a strong scent, a bright coin or purposeful misplacement of something that was dear to them. If they cannot draw our attention in the present moment, they come to us in our dreams to let us know they are not so far away that we cannot still communicate with them.

Death is Nothing at All
by Henry Scott Holland

Death is nothing at all…
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I, and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak to me in the easy way you always used.
Put no difference into your tone
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort,
without the ghost of a shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was;
there is absolutely unbroken continuity….
Why should I be out of your mind because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you for an interval,
Somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well

Past Life Exploration: Have You Been Here Before?

Do you ever wonder if you have lived in the past or had a past life?

There are many people on the planet today that have lived a past life, even past lives. However, few recall these experiences. How can you tell if you have been here before? Ask yourself if a situation or place seems familiar even if you don’t recall having the experience previously. Turn off your logical mind-set for a moment and let your unconscious mind take over, prompt your unconscious mind to provide the answers – ask the question internally and then keep yourself busy doing other things to occupy conscious thought. Memories that do not exist within your conscious experience will begin to pop up. If that’s not possible, pose the question just before you go to sleep. You may receive answers – in pictures – in your dreams. Test your “memory,” and document what you see or feel. Try to focus on dates, events, the environment, weather or any catastrophic events that may have occurred during that period – see in your mind what people look like, what they are wearing, etc. Do whatever it takes to trigger a deeper memory. Then research your findings. See if there is any documented history around that moment that verifies what you’ve seen.

Try This Test
Here’s another way to discover if you have had a past life experience. You and a trusted friend should find a low table and sit cross legged on the floor on each side of the table. Turn the lights down low. Place a white candle between you and light it. Allow your gaze to relax and stare into your friend’s eyes for a while over the candlight. Talk about what you see. After a little while features will begin to change and new features will appear. Write down the things you see. Chances are you are seeing what your friend looked like in a past life. You may be surprised where the path takes you.

An Ending and a Beginning
In the mid 1980s, classes were taught in downtown Atlanta on psychic development. During one of the classes, a session on past life paris-riverseine9regression was held. The results were quite interesting. As a class participant, I was able to identify instances and experiences from a number of past lives. For example, I recalled an experience from the 1700’s in Paris. The love of my life was killed, and it was never clear to me what happened to him. By chance, I went to Paris for a weekend in 2011. Traveling on a riverboat down the Seine, I looked up as we passed beneath a bridge and almost fainted. A scene from the past played out before my eyes as my lover was robbed, stabbed in the back and thrown into the river. The next day, I returned to the bridge and released the man and the past. It was a healing moment. By letting go of the past, and any regrets, we are better positioned to welcome the present moment.

Why can’t I remember?
It’s acceptable for small children (up to age 4) to have imaginary friends and unique experiences (including thoughts of past life experiences), but as we get older those memories fade. It’s only natural to focus on what’s happening today and forget where we came from. That doesn’t mean it didn’t occur, only that we no longer remember. Because we have so many information sources available to us on the Internet today, we are seeing many more stories about children who are remembering past lives. Here are a few interesting ones:

The child who lived among the stars of Hollywood

Memories of a former life as a slave

The case of the fighter pilot

Death by fire, a woman becomes a little boy

Chances are you, too, have had a past life experience. Take time to explore the possibility.
