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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

ConsciousMirrors are an interesting topic as everyone can relate to them on some level.

What is a mirror you may ask?

Physical mirrors aside, Mirrors are based on the principle that everything in the external world is simply a reflection of our internal state of being. It’s also the law of attraction in action.

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.

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.

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.

ForgivenessMost of us have, at one time or another, been hurt by the words or actions of others.

The problem is; if we hold onto the emotions of anger, bitterness, pain or sometimes even hatred, it can have a devastating effect on our own lives – both on our health and the circumstances we attract to ourselves.

Every thought we have turns to energy and fills our aura – thus affecting what and who comes into our life.

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.

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.

Becoming CrystallineHumanity is gradually becoming crystalline, or more crystal-like in vibration.

This is a process that is gradual and happens over many years. Those at the forefront of spiritual evolution are leading the way to hold a higher vibration in human form.

One of the easiest ways to become more crystalline is to wear and work with crystals.

Ask to make a connection with your body elemental to assist in healing your physical body.

Your body elemental is the consciousness of your body and is always trying to maintain balance. It communicates with you through feeling and intuition. Often we say, “I have a gut feeling”.

This is your body elemental trying to communicate with you.

Spiritual GrowthFrom the dawn of civilized society, man has quested for Spiritual Growth.

In tribal times the leader of the clan would look to the Shaman for direction and advice. The Shaman would interpret the signs of nature or vision quest into spiritual realms for insight.

The Pagans were a nature-based society with high regard for intuition. Sadly, much of their knowledge was lost in the Great Witch-Hunts of the Dark Ages, and those who preferred spiritual education to religious were forced underground.

But never has there been a time before now with greater interest and acceptance of those looking for spiritual growth. Community based Spiritualist churches and remote meditation and psychic development circles are flourishing.

Energy with IntentEnergy is contagious. We see and feel this all of the time.

For example, you just have to have one person gossiping or putting someone down in the workplace and the negative energy begins to filter into the environment – Or if you are in a room full of babies, one can start to cry and before you know it they are all crying.

The good news is it is up to us to decide what form of energy we wish to spread.
