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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Feng Shui TipsSimple Feng Shui Tips to Improve Your Life

Many people these days are becoming more and more interested in the fascinating world of Feng Shui.

One of the really great things about the ancient art and science is that you can improve your life very easily by implementing a few things here and there.

Just a little bit of the right Feng Shui and you should notice the benefits quite quickly.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Path to EnlightenmentThere are many paths to enlightenment and no particular right or wrong way to get there.

Essentially it is about going within, working on your thoughts and belief structures and taping into your sub conscious mind.

There becomes a time where the conscious and sub conscious minds merge; whereas before the sub-conscious was hidden, yet still influencing your thoughts and day-to-day living.

To me this defines what enlightenment means, to have greater awareness.

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.

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.

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.
