Mates with SoulI am often asked by people, “Will I meet my soul mate?” … and my answer to that is, “You already have”.

So many people spend their life craving the perfect romantic partner to suit the ideal their ego has made for them when in reality; I believe we have many soul mates or soul connections, as I prefer to call them.

I believe we come here with lessons that we need to learn and there are many souls that have agreed to be part of our life here to help us with those lessons.

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.

Goal SettingA guest post by Karen Ellyard.
In this post I would like to talk to you about your Value Goals.

I find that very few people set these goals – but I truly believe are the most important goals of all.

They define who you are and what is important to you.

Some examples are; peace, love, joy, passion, wisdom, honesty, abundance, loyalty, compassion, generosity, integrity, kindness, responsibility, respect, tolerance, courage, acceptance, gratitude, forgiveness and faith, just to name a few.

Setting your Value Goals makes it very easy to make decisions.

Inner WorthWe have created a society that predominately values the outer landscape and has forgotten the inner landscape.

This is slowly changing and one-day society will value the inner landscape again.

We certainly still need the outer landscape, but it needs to be balanced and integrated with the inner landscape.

By turning inward, we begin to understand who we are as a person.

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.

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.

Spiritual AscensionAscension is a gradual process of becoming enlightened while walking around as a human being.

It is a process of changing from a disconnected human being, to a connected human being, connected to one’s higher self and the realm of spirit. During ascension spirit begins to merge with matter over a period of time, parts of our soul/higher self begin to merge with our body/mind/spirit.

While there are some similarities of ascension with everyone, it is also a very unique and personal experience. After all, we are all so unique and special in our own way.

ReincarnateWhen we reach the end of our life it is said that we get to review our life. For me this rings true.

Our spirit guides are there with us and we review our life, from start to finish, kind of like on a big cinema screen.

We see and feel how we have influenced others in positive and negative ways throughout our lives and we see the lessons we learnt or didn’t learn.

We see things from a higher perspective, how spirit views things.

How to Automatic WritingI’ve always enjoyed writing. It’s one way in which I can express myself creatively.

I like to capture the essence of a thought or concept and get it on the page so that others have the opportunity to see its beauty.

It’s a thrill to have a blank piece of paper in front of me and an hour to spare!

I’ve written poetry, stories, commercials, film scripts, sales copy and blog articles. They are all very different beasts – even though they are all crafted from the same 26 letters and a few bits of punctuation.

Something I’ve never had to deal with is writers block. (I actually have trouble getting the words down fast enough!) I would feel myself enter a creative zone – and the rest of the world would fall away. It was just me and the page … Or so I thought…

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.

Focus on the PositiveIt is easy to get caught up in the negative side of life with the rising cost of living, bad weather, struggling economies – not to mention the negative side of what we see on television.

It is important to remember that what we focus our attention on we become.

There are many blessings in life every day, but where is your attention; on hardships, stress and unhappiness (which are created by us) or the blessings and joy in our life?

Divine Will and Free WillIn our human experience we have chosen and been gifted with free will. We have the choice to do what we please in life.

Often our choices are determined by our beliefs and our state of mind and emotions. Spirit wishes to teach humanity that we have two choices, a higher choice guided by spirit, or a lower choice guided by the ego.

Spirit does not judge us by the quality of choices we make in life but on a higher level we essentially do.

When you walk the spiritual path, gradually your will becomes aligned with the will of spirit, god, or whatever you perceive it to be. Often this is a gradual process over many years, we still have an ego, but it becomes less of a driving force in our lives.

What Will Happen in 20122012 – Will it be the end of the world or the beginning of something beautiful?

Since the fall of Atlantis thousands of years ago, in our collective consciousness we have held a fear about Armageddon occurring and the end of the world.

Many souls that experienced the fall and apocalypse of Atlantis are also alive today on the planet.

Essentially we are here to create a new golden age and ensure that what happened in Atlantis won’t happen again.

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.

Cherokee Sweat LodgeI have just I experienced my first Native American Sweat Lodge.

It has been on my list of ‘things to do’ for some time, as my ears would prick whenever I would hear someone sharing their experience, but with divine timing, it was obviously perfect for me to experience it … now.
 
Bobby Runningfox is a full-blooded Cherokee Native American living on the Gold Coast of Australia.

I know that he is very well established and respected in the local spiritual circles, and after a personal healing session with Bobby several months ago, I felt very secure taking this step along my spiritual path with him as my guide.

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.

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.
