EmpathyA guest post by Karen Ellyard.
It has been a sad time for me with the passing of our beloved dog, Charley.

It is times like this when being an Empath is really difficult and I have really struggled with this gift (or at times I think not a gift).

When Empaths have a connection we feel what the other soul is feeling. As Charley became ill I could feel her deteriorating which was far from pleasant.

At this time I want to honor our beloved Charley who brought us many years of absolute joy and all of you Empaths out there that struggle with balancing the emotions and feelings they absorb.

Spiritual Growth Ebb FlowI wear many hats. I only have one head, so I imagine from the outside I look like a fancy circus-juggler dazzling the crowd with my frantic hat-swapping abilities.

Is this a good thing or bad thing? Well, that would depend on the time of day you ask me. If I was full of positive energy and riding a wave – on top of the world; if I was spinning in circles looking dazed and confused – not so much.

But for people like me who jump from project to project, or idea to idea, where we place our focus is the direction of our life path.

Ego and SoulTwo natural parts of our human expression are the ego and the soul.

Although we all have both of these aspects in our nature, some people have more balance (or lack of) in their personality.

Our journey from childhood to adulthood can be challenging and our ego is designed to protect us. However the ego will never give us any long-term satisfaction or empowerment.

As a human with free will, we have the choice to nurture our ego or soul.

Being AdaptableI was walking off stage after busting out some reluctant Karaoke…

It was a Robbie Williams Kylie Minogue duet I was singing with a girl I had just met while flicking through the song lists.

My male friend who had been watching from the back of the room shook his head as I approached.

“Damn I hate you. You are good at everything you do,” he said.

You What Now!? (I was expecting a high-five).

Although he had said it with a half-smile, I could tell it was more than a passing comment. It was obviously something he had given previous consideration, and I quickly figured a large part of him was hoping that I had failed at my karaoke attempt.

It took me some time to realize the meaning behind his words…

Affirmations for WealthMoney is an important aspect of our lives, and allows us to have freedom and enjoy the pleasures of the material world.

Abundance can take on many forms, not only money.

We can have an abundance of friends, an abundance of health and happiness, or an abundance of passion and zest for life, to name a few examples.

These positive affirmations will help to reprogram your subconscious mind and beliefs from a limited state into a positive expansive state of mind.

Being PresentI often hear people say, “If only I had time to do what I need to do to grow spiritually.”

I have come to understand that people tend to compartmentalize who they are by ‘where they are and what they are doing’.

Who hasn’t tried to improve themselves by saying, “I will try to put aside some time every day to be present.”

Having been thinking on this I think, ‘Wow! What a way to load more pressure on yourself in a life that is often too busy – where time just seems to move faster and faster.’

I really believe that walking with spirit is the essence of who we are and not meant to be turned on at times.

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.

Power of Saying NoI’m not sure when you will be reading this, but I’m writing it not long after the start of a new calendar year. No this isn’t a post about the importance of setting New Year resolutions – I’ve never really gone for that.

I like to think that I have the ability to make important decisions for my well-being at any time of the year!

The reason this has come up for me now is that I went camping over New Years and really got back to basics. As I strolled knee deep in the crystal clear waters of Station Creek, with is golden sandy bottom and a gentle ocean tide making it perfect to lay back and float down, I re-realized how much I enjoy getting away from it all.

The computer, work, deadlines, expectations, commitments, the phone, the TV … all of it. It’s not that any of those things are bad by themselves, but for me, when they are a constant pressure for too long I get blinded from my life’s true joys.

So the solution would appear to be easy – Take more holidays and find my happy place.

But there is one major hurdle. I’m too busy.

KarmaA guest post by Karen Ellyard.

I would like to share this story with you – Author unknown.

One day a man saw an old lady stranded on the side of the road. Even in the fading light of the day, he could see she needed help. He pulled up in front of her Mercedes and got out. His Pontiac was still sputtering when he approached her.

Even with a smile on his face, she was worried as he approached. No one had stopped to help for the last hour or so. Was he going to hurt her? He didn’t look safe; he looked poor and hungry.

He could see that she was frightened, standing out there in the cold. He knew how she felt. It was those chills which only fear can put in you.

He said, “I’m here to help you, ma’am. Why don’t you wait in the car where it’s warm? By the way, my name is Bryan Anderson.”

Learning from MistakesA guest post by Brad Austen.

There is a saying many of us are familiar with; “Everything happens for our highest good”.

I believe there is some truth in this statement because on a higher level everything that happens to us supports our enlightenment and evolution.

On a human level, we may not make the highest choices as we have free will to choose our thoughts and to act on these thoughts. Most of us will make mistakes because this is how we learn and review those choices afterwards.

The key is not to dwell on our perceived past mistakes, because they have made you who you are today.

It is my belief that mistakes support our path to our highest good.

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.

Abundance GratitudeI was sitting to focus on the things I was thankful for. I felt emotion rise and tears started to flow.

This made we wonder … ‘What is Gratitude’?

I have often stated that it is the energy of gratitude that attracts abundance.

If that is the case, and I believe it is, then how do we use the universal law of Gratitude?

I could now clearly see the difference between simply saying ‘thank you’, or sitting to make a list of the things I am grateful for – compared to actually Being Grateful.

Setting Boundaries with SpiritBoundaries are important in all areas of our lives as they are a statement that we respect and honour ourselves enough to set one.

It is important to set boundaries in all of our relationships.

So if you are working with spirit, in any capacity, it is vital that you set boundaries for this also.

Spirit is drawn to those that can communicate and if we don’t set boundaries we can get bombarded constantly. No one like to be on call 24 hours, 7 days a week!

<Mystic TempleYou have a lovely, personal, private Temple.
We all do.

Inside your unique Mystic Temple…
you’ll discover all of the wonderful abilities, talents, energies, meditations, astral friends and tools you’ve accumulated over all of your countless lifetimes.

What you find will tell you a great deal about who and what you really are, what your purpose is and what your best tools and strongest abilities are.

Maybe you’ll discover your Mystic Temple inside yourself … Maybe you’ll find it in the Astral Realms.

It doesn’t really matter where your perception tells you it’s located – the process for finding and exploring your lovely Temple remains the same.

You will achieve the best results in these exercises by pouring vast amounts of love into each area as it appears. Love will bring it back to life. Love will protect you and heal everything you encounter.

Reiki HealingReiki is a very versatile tool for healing as it works on so many levels.

I would say that being attuned to Reiki Energy has been the biggest single influence in raising my vibration and helping me to be energy aware.

I use it always…

Whether self-healing, giving a massage, wishing someone well, on food and medicine, or to energize and give thanks to Mother Earth.

This post by Karen Ellyard lists many of the reasons when reiki energy is of tremendous benefit and discusses what would happen if Reiki was taught in schools.
