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.

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.

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!”

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.

Balanced LifeHow does one become or remain balanced in an imbalanced world?

With so much negativity and suffering happening in the world, it can be a challenge not to get drawn in and affected by it. You only have to switch on the TV or listen to the radio to hear about all the negativity and bad things happening in the world. Mainstream news is usually roughly 90 percent negative and 10 percent positive, which is very unbalanced reporting.

It also isn’t an accurate reflection of the majority of humanity; most people are inherently good.

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.

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 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.

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.

Develop Listening SkillsPeople often ask me why spirit guides don’t talk to them.

I really believe that they do, it is just that we have forgotten how to listen.

Think about your listening skills

Often when we are in conversation with others, our idea of listening is to think about what we wish to say next to top their story.

We are thinking about our response and not actively listening.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Living With AbundanceI would like to share with you my thoughts on gratitude and how powerful this can be in your life.

Gratitude is a key factor in attracting abundance and happiness into your life.

When we come from a place of sincere gratitude our energy is one of acceptance and harmony.

This energy attracts positive additional energies to us.
