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.

<Mystic TempleYou have a lovely, personal, private Temple.
We all do.

Inside your unique Mystic Temple…
you’ll discover all of the wonderful abilities, talents, energies, meditations, astral friends and tools you’ve accumulated over all of your countless lifetimes.

What you find will tell you a great deal about who and what you really are, what your purpose is and what your best tools and strongest abilities are.

Maybe you’ll discover your Mystic Temple inside yourself … Maybe you’ll find it in the Astral Realms.

It doesn’t really matter where your perception tells you it’s located – the process for finding and exploring your lovely Temple remains the same.

You will achieve the best results in these exercises by pouring vast amounts of love into each area as it appears. Love will bring it back to life. Love will protect you and heal everything you encounter.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Life PathThis is a time for new beginnings. The past is behind us and it is time for us to move forward.

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 is still 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.

It is not possible to move in two directions at the same time, so whilst we are wasting our energy fighting against what we don’t want, we make no progress towards what we do want.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.”

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.

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.
