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.

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.

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.

Trusting YourselfTrust is built with consistency.

If we want to trust ourselves, then we have to trust we have the capacity to change things for the better, and be consistent with those thoughts.

If we always limit ourselves with negative thinking and speech like; “I’m not” or “I can’t”, then that will result in not trusting ourselves.

Love Based DecisionsThe end of each year is generally a time for new beginnings. We evaluate our achievements, and plan a path to help move us forward.

But most people don’t strive for new beginnings – because the unknown is scary.

Even though people may not like where they are at the moment (job, relationship, anything), it’s familiar, comfortable, predictable and requires minimal effort.

It is often avoidance (not being honest with ourselves) and resistance (too hard to change – which is based on fear) that stops us.

What is Spiritual Growth‘Spiritual Growth’ as a definition will differ between people, according to their experiences, beliefs and personality characteristics.

Just like buying a t-shirt or pair of jeans – one size definitely does not fit all, thus I can only share my view…

The word spiritual alludes to that something within us which is above and beyond that of our physical reality.

Spiritual growth then is the path we walk to accomplish a greater awareness and alignment to this inner-force.

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.

Meaning of my Favorite ColorEvery color in the visible light spectrum has a different frequency.

It’s no coincidence that rainbows always appear to us in the order of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. It is a scientific fact that each color vibrates, or exists with a different energy.

As color is everywhere, we take for granted the effect it has on our lives. But just because we are not aware does not mean that we are not influenced by the powerful energies each color has.

The use of color with specific intent has been used for centuries – but at no time more than now.

DimensionsA lot of material has been channeled in the new-age community about the different dimensions and ascension.

But what are these dimensions?

The Earth has multiple dimensions, which remain invisible until you are vibrating at the same frequency as that particular dimension.

Dimensions aren’t so much a place, but a state of being and vibration.

The earth is still vibrating physically in the 3rd dimension, but its ethereal body is vibrating in the 4th dimension. Eventually the physical will merge with the spiritual and become a 4th dimension body and so on, until the earth becomes a 5th dimensional planet.

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.”

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.

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.

AscensionThrough practicing meditation and embracing a spiritual path, over time you will raise your energetic vibration. This is also known as ascension.

Raising your vibration while in a physical body is a slow and gradual process. It has to be a gradual process otherwise your physical body wouldn’t cope.

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.

Making ChoicesIn this post I would like to talk to you about choice.

One of the greatest gifts we have been given is the gift to make choices about everything in every moment.

What will I eat?  When will I go to sleep? When will I wake up? What will I do today? What will I think today? How will I react today?

We make choices constantly all day long which create and affect our life today and also create and affect our future moments.

The series of choices we make today affect our future, not some predestined writings.

NamasteI have heard “Namaste” in my spiritual circles over the years but did not really know what it meant. I asked a few friends who had strong ideas – but all of their ideas were different.

But then I remembered that little internet thingy called Wikipedia.

And no wonder I was confused! It’s worth a look just for the laugh … but I digress.

Namaste: “The Divine In Me – Salutes – The Divine In You!”

Exercises for your BrainThe brain is the organ in our body which allows us to think and interact with the environment; through perception and cognition.

Our brain constantly builds neurons while learning from the new challenges we face each day.

Just like the physical body, our brain also needs to be exercised, if it is to perform at its best.

It is very important to perform tasks that challenge your brain. This helps in building intellect, co-ordination, physical agility, enhanced memory and advanced cognitive behaviors.

Life DirectionA spirit-inspired guest post by Brad Austen.

There can be times in many people’s lives when they may find themselves at a crossroads and not know which direction to take.

Firstly, realize you are not alone! Many people question what to do with their life at one time or another.

Energy VibrationIf we strip everything back to the basics, everything is energy. Everyone has a unique energy vibration that is constantly changing with our mood and the food we eat. What is quite interesting is that we actually eat food on a subconscious level that matches our vibration at the time.

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.
