Sometimes people have poor health habits, such as smoking, a poor diet, or lack of exercise, and not until a diagnosis like diabetes or asthma are they motivated enough to make changes necessary for health and well-being.
Many cultural environments support misguided priorities, such as poor food quality, medicating the public, and rewarding greed. And just as with personal health, our communal well-being often needs to become extremely unhealthy before necessary changes become a prime concern.
My guides have always told me to stay current to address issues as they arise. But when problems and imbalances are left to develop over time, consequences have an enormous impact on us individually, collectively, and our environment.
Over the years, I have observed that many people feel overwhelmed by personal, political, and global concerns and as a result avoidance becomes a primary strategy for coping. Avoidance causes small problems to turn into large problems.
What do we do? The first step is to look and not avoid. Whether this means getting on a scale to monitor your weight, or being mindful of how you spend your money. All our thoughts, words, and actions have an impact. We all vote with our feet every day.
Last week I was driving to an important meeting while feeling some distress because I just didn’t feel physically well. I decided to pull into a parking lot for a short meditation. In the stillness of my mind, I asked for help. I reached out to my spiritual guidance for healing.
It didn’t take long before an elegant man in etheric form dressed in a dark colored robe appeared on my left side. I certainly recognized him, because this wasn’t the first time that he had come to give me healing and support. With my eyes closed, I soaked up the light and vibrational energy he sent my way until I felt completely rejuvenated and ready to enjoy and fully participate in the meeting scheduled to start in fifteen minutes.
My motivation in sharing this story is to remind all that read it, to reach out for help when needed. We are not alone. Over and over again I have been told that the beings of light in the spiritual realm wish to help those who help others. Just reach out!
In two days my new book THE INFINITE VIEW will be available to the public. The journey to bringing the stories, and ideas contained in this book to a wider audience as been a long one. I have had three literary agents and many opportunities for publishing that fell through at the last moment. My guides told me that they were holding me back until the time was right.
I received a wonderful confirmation of my guides’ message when I discovered that when my current agent, who was successful in bringing my book to publication, first came to NYC she lived on the very street where I had my spiritual awakening. What are the odds?
From a spiritually attuned place timing is essential. Spirit’s timing and our timing is so often different. Once I was told wait until all the dominoes are lined up and then only one push will be needed for a big impact. Working smart instead of just hard is often linked to timing
Let me introduce you to THE INFINITE VIEW! I would love to hear your feedback through Facebook and reviews.
My guides have said through the years, “Depth is a doorway to accessing direct spiritual connection.” Whether that connection is with one’s own spirit, spiritual guides, or the experience of oneness. Depth is the ability to experience any aspect of life beneath the surface. Spirit is always underlying everything, so when life experiences, relationships, or creativity are experienced deeply, connection with spirit and its sustaining principles are always a by-product.
A common obstacle to having direct spiritual experiences is rushing, pushing, and being caught in cultural expectations that generate a superficial quality of life. Listen to the rhythm of your own inner being this may take courage if it goes against the presumptions of those around you.
In the midst of challenging times I go back to a statement from my guides, “Attunement is the only rule.” What they mean by this is that whether we are in a difficult time or a time of smooth sailing, aligning our conscious mind with our spiritual essence through deep listening and deep focus will give us guidance about what to do.
An essential key to accessing deep listening and deep focus is to pause throughout the day to focus and listen. All to often in our modern world there is more to do in a day then we can accomplish. But when we pause to listen and focus we work and choose with wisdom. Take the time to attune!
Generalizations are inaccurate, unclear, and lead to confused attitudes and actions. When my guides first trained me, every time I spoke in a generalization I was corrected until I started to be self-observing and self-correcting.
Since then I’ve learned to pay very close attention to how others speak and write and have discovered that generalizations are all too common. In fact, generalizations are a problem. Whether they entail attitudes about a whole group of people, believing that gentleness is always best, or that if we are loving to others they will be loving to us.
My guides say, “Be like a zephyr, be like a hurricane, bend like a willow and steady like an oak,” Attunement is situational awareness. My guides say, “Only spiritual principles are consistent everything thing else must vary.”
My guides say positivity is our greatest protection. How do we stay in true positivity in the midst of great difficulty without getting caught in either discouragement or avoidance?
First of all, it is important to understand the difference between a desire and an attachment. A pure desire flows out of our spiritual essence and propels us forward into creativity, loving, and service. Attachment, on the other hand, is desire mixed up with the fear of not getting what we want. When we are attached to an outcome whether it is world peace or getting a new car and we don’t get what we want, discouragement can set in and/or overwhelm leading to a loss of confidence or avoidance as a way to feel better in the short term.
True positivity includes looking honestly at imbalances and problems with wisdom and compassion coupled with the desire to feel, express, and actualize the spiritual principles associated with our core and collectives natures. I define positivity as attitudes and actions based in spiritual principles, while negativity stems from attitudes and actions not based in spiritual principles.
From this prospective, how we experience our inner life and manifest our outer life is the key to true positivity. We can influence, but not control and if we become reactionary to our outer circumstances we lose our balance. Be in attuned action rather than reaction and know that karma comes from reaction while enlightenment comes from self-actualization. Our greatest service and personal fulfillment are one.
In traditional psychology, what influences human behavior is nature and nurture or in other words genetics and environment. Because our parents give us our genetics and most often our early environment, if we don’t like our conduct or quality of experience it really is our parents’ fault.
However, my guides say that our human behavior comes from four aspects, yes our genetics and environment, but also our past life traumas, talents, fears, and attainments and our eternal identity as Spirit.
They say that we experience our environment through the lens of our own karmic past, which includes both our past lives and/or our Spirit and that we are guided toward families that bring up both our strengths and weaknesses, so we can work with them to evolve. This perspective encourages self-responsibility and can simultaneously empower us to actualize our best through being guided by the wisdom of our own inner Spirit.
