Positive IntentionsA guest post by Karen Ellyard.

I would like to share with you some thoughts on ‘intention‘.

Intention is an invisible field of energy, and every part of us lives within that energy whilst we are connected to ourselves.

When we disconnect and work from ego, we transfer the dominant force that moves us either backward or forward from ‘intent’ to ‘outside forces’, like; possessions, achievements, reputation … and allow those things to define us and where we go.

Intention can never be accessed by ego, so when we work from ego we cannot move forward on our path as we are not using intent and our path is not clear.

We can either move with universal spirit force, or away from it, towards ego.

Munay-Ki RitesI’m a nature lover. For me it’s the canvas on which Mother Earth expresses her beauty – and to connect with that natural energy both purifies and energizes me. It’s my happy place. When connected to nature – I am free to be my spiritual-self.

So whenever I hear of the opportunity to deepen my spiritual connection with the divine, feminine, nurturing energy she provides my ears prick up and my interest is held captive.

Energy AwarenessI would like to talk to you about your energy awareness – and how it can help move us forward or stand in our way.

What we need to understand is that our mind creates our physical reality. As we think and feel, our energy reflects this and creates the pictures of our thoughts.

There are many things in our lives that distract us and draw our energy and hold us from moving forward.

Drama in our lives really does not need our attention, it just wants our energy and awareness.

Life LessonsYou may have heard the saying that ‘life is a game’ – and come to realize that everyone plays a different role in the drama of life.

While we are in the game, it feels very real and sometimes hard to detach ourselves from it emotionally.

Throughout our sojourns as a spirit pretending to be human, we experience many roles. We do this to expand our awareness and experience as a spirit and to evolve.

Meditation can be a great tool to learn to silence one’s mind to hear the soft whispers of spirit. Spirit is always there to help guide us in our life, but it is often subtle and easy to ignore.

Path to EnlightenmentThe path to enlightenment is often called a path because it is a journey through time and space … You don’t simply wake up one day enlightened.

It takes time and dedication to the spiritual path over many years and lifetimes. Everyone is at different stages of enlightenment on the planet. Some are more advanced in areas and some are still in infancy in areas.

Life on earth supports enlightenment through the challenges, tests and trials we are faced with throughout our life.

Gift of LifeI would like to remind you of something I often remind myself of.

Life may not be wrapped in bows, and it’s not always pretty … but it is still a gift.

We need to be willing to take delight in the unwrapping each day and taking pleasure at each stage of the unwrapping until we get to the center.

The core, the power of the gift of life, is the portion that is ourselves.

If we have a belief that life is hard or a trial then every step of it will be.

In the end it is up to us to either see the gift or see a problem.

Healing with CrystalsCrystal Healing is a very ancient form of therapy and at this moment it is experiencing a new enthusiasm.

Crystal Healing uses the innate and natural ability of Crystals to induce healing, by focusing and balancing our bodies, amplifying our minds and thoughts, and raising our vibration.

I know what some of you may be thinking… Seriously, does Crystal Healing work???

Yes, yes, and YES, it definitely does!

Spiritual GrowthMountains are symbolic in life of overcoming one’s challenges – and rising to the top and succeeding.

We all have different challenges in life to overcome that we have chosen from a spiritual level. As we overcome a challenge, we don’t have to address it again, and we can move onto bigger and better things.

This is also the nature of ascension.

Like a mountain, the journey becomes steeper and more challenging the higher you climb; but the rewards are also greater.

Clearing Subtle BodyMeditation is the basic practice to attain balance within our physical, mental and emotional bodies.

Meditation enables us to live with greater happiness in today’s stressful atmosphere.

Keeping yourself in balance should be a priority, but it can be a very tough task without Meditation.

Meditation provides the opportunity for everyone to receive joy and happiness in all aspects of their lives.

Making a differenceI would like to share a story with you that I have come across over the years – which never fails to touch me and remind me what is important.

“As she stood in front of her 5th grade class on the very first day of school, she told the children an untruth. Like most teachers, she looked at her students and said that she loved them all the same. However, that was impossible, because there in the front row, slumped in his seat, was a little boy named Teddy Stoddard.

Mrs. Thompson had watched Teddy the year before and noticed that he did not play well with the other children, that his clothes were messy and that he constantly needed a bath. In addition, Teddy could be unpleasant.

It got to the point where Mrs. Thompson would actually take delight in marking his papers with a broad red pen, making bold X’s and then putting a big “F” at the top of his papers.

At the school where Mrs. Thompson taught, she was required to review each child’s past records and she put Teddy’s off until last. However, when she reviewed his file, she was in for a surprise.

Life JourneyAs a child I use to read a series of choose your own adventure books. For those that aren’t familiar with them, basically it was a children’s story that allowed the reader to choose what the character experienced.

Similar to life, in the book, you could make choices based on free will.

There were usually three different endings in these books. Some of the consequences the character in the book experienced could be considered good, bad and ugly. It was a novel idea; as just in life, we are all living our own choose your own adventure story.

EmpathEmpaths are affected by others’ energies, emotions and often physical pains.

They can often know the intentions of people and they hear the heart as they can feel what the other people feel. They don’t necessarily read the future but they can read people.

‘Cool’, you might think – but if left unprotected empaths can often suffer from constant fatigue, headaches and unexplained aches and pains.

Empaths feel more comfortable in the spiritual word and often struggle here on the Earth plane.

MindfulnessIn today’s post, I am asking you to consider the absence of stimulus.

The reason being is that I am attempting to live without television for one month.

Why? Because they were digging a new drain several blocks from my house, the cable got cut, and the suburb was without TV for about 24 hours.

Now, my place is quite small – so I usually have the TV on a music channel for background noise. But when I picked up the remote and clicked the button, it was an eerie feeling to see a blue screen with the ‘No Signal’ message.

It was like an old friend didn’t like me anymore.

learning lifes lessonsHeaven and Hell; they both live within us.

This may be a challenging thought but I really believe we create our heaven or our hell based on our perception.

We will all have difficult times to face on our journey.

I believe the trick is not to dwell there any longer than we have to. We need to just stay in the light with our thoughts and try to move forward.

The problem often is that people look for success in the wrong places and then get disgruntled when they don’t find what they are looking for.

During the hard or painful times in my life, were the times where I learnt the most about myself and what I needed to change to move forward.

DestinyDestiny – Kristina Gailiute interviews Brad Austen

Q – What guides our destiny?

A – It is our soul that ultimately guides our destiny, but also our ego personality and free-will choices play a part in our life. For many of us, our soul is only a faint whisper, unless we learn to quiet our minds and go within.

One way of doing this is through meditation.

We also have a team of spirit guides that guide us on our journey in life. We have free will, which is a gift, but there are universal laws such as cause and effect that allow us to experience the results from our choices and actions. We can then reflect on the choices we have made. If we aren’t happy with the outcome we can strive to make wiser choices in the future.

On a Spiritual PathA guess post by Karen Ellyard.

I would like to talk to you about your spiritual path. When I am doing a psychic reading I am very often asked “Am I on the right path?” or “How do I know if I am on the right path?”

It seems a lot of people think that to be on the right path they need to be doing some world shattering, huge humanitarian work.

I find that if people are questioning then this in itself is a great sign. When we get lost we often stop questioning and just get pushed along with the flow. Not happy but not questioning why.
