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.

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.

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 they 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.

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.

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.

Consciousness AwarenessA spirit-inspired guest post by Brad Austen.

Transcending victim consciousness is an interesting topic to contemplate.

On a human level our awareness is somewhat limited, in comparison to our soul’s level of awareness. We all have a soul, but it can be a faint whisper in our lives, unless you nurture this connection.

For many the ego and personality are the driving force in one’s life, but this is also gradually changing, as we go through the shift in consciousness. As human beings we have free will, so whether these inner and outer changes happen quickly or slowly is up to us.

In the spirit world before we are born and have decided to come to earth, a contract or soul agreement is drawn up with our guides.
This contract also involves other people, our family, friends and future partners, who we choose to grow and learn from. When we are born into this world, for the most part we agree to forget our real home, our past lives and our soul agreements.

Spirituality and RealityPlease enjoy this guest post by Sophia Gubb.

I’ve been on a spiritual path for several years now. It was a rocky road.

At about eighteen, I had a breakthrough. After 5 years of struggling to find an answer to my ongoing existential crisis, I realised that I had been wrong about everything.

I mean everything. I mean, the Universe.

Love and FearI would like to speak to you about love and fear.

Love and fear cannot coexist; we are either working from one or the other.

In a world where people spend so much of their lives focusing on what they don’t want to happen, which is fear based, love is often absent.

Fear is an extremely strong energy and can take hold in people’s lives and turn into a repeating pattern.

Fear can become our underlying belief and this exists as energy. This energy attracts additional similar energy which then manifests fear in our lives.

Even if a situation has passed we can still be connected energetically to that fear and we need to detach and move on from it for things to change as it can become crippling to our dreams, desires and lives.

Channeled InformationA spirit-inspired guest post by Brad Austen.

Reading or listening to channeled information can be a great way to receive new and higher knowledge that we don’t normally have access to.
Channeling can ‘fill the gaps’ in certain areas that our society hasn’t become aware of or discovered yet. But, just because this information often comes from a higher source, should we take it all in as gospel truth?

Just because information is claiming to come from a higher source, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s entirely correct or accurate.

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.

Energy Old NewA spirit-inspired guest post by Brad Austen.

There has been much prophesy regarding the times we are living in, and also a great deal channeled about these times.

The planet and its inhabitants on the surface have been gradually increasing in light over the past 70 years. But as we look around us, you wouldn’t be criticized for saying that it looks as if we are just at the beginning of the ascension journey.

In many ways we are just at the beginning, but nonetheless building a foundation and planting seeds for the future.

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.

Loving MyselfLife can be full of curve balls. My beloved dog Charley just had a lump removed from her leg. They have found it to be a rare and very quick growing cancer. They are confident they have removed all of it and its roots, so good news there. As I sat reflecting on what had happened (knowing that everything happens for a reason) I could not help but wonder why (don’t you just love being human), because when I Reiki myself in the mornings I also Reiki Charley.

Manifesting AbundanceI would like to talk to you about attracting abundance – in an economy which in many places is struggling.

I am not talking just about positive thinking here, as although positive thinking has its place, it does not matter how much you say “money is coming to you” if your underlying belief is worry and lack.

If that’s the case, that is the energy that will attract your circumstances.

The key here is creating the correct energy and then getting out of your own way. Here is an example.

What is the meaning of LifeA spirit-inspired guest post by Brad Austen.

Many great men and women over the centuries have questioned the meaning of life. This article will explore this theme and also encourage you to think about the meaning of your own life.

I believe the meaning of life is slightly different for everyone, because we all have different goals and aspirations we wish to achieve. But in a nutshell, we are here for our growth and the evolution of our soul.

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.

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.”

Dream SymbolsA guest post by Karen Ellyard.
I would like to talk to you about symbols in your dreams.

One thing we need to understand about symbols is they can mean different things, depending on the person, where they see it or how it was used.

Having said that – here are a few starting points that we can ponder.

Destiny or FateIs our Destiny pre-planned or do we have choice?

Human destiny is an interesting topic to explore, as many people in their lives will wonder what the future has in store for them.

Generally there are two schools of thought on this subject.

One belief is that we create our own destiny with our thoughts, words and actions, moment by moment, each day.

The other school of thought is that our destiny is already pre-planned; we created it before we were born.
