You Are a Star – Speak Out!

A spiral in AndromedaThe other day one of my friends on social media shared a 2014 video of a tearful young North Korean woman who delivered a compelling account of her perilous journey to what she thought was freedom in China.  As they navigated by the night sky, Yeon-mi Park described how she felt that only the stars were with them. This is one of the feelings that oppressed or abused people deal with throughout their lives, because they have been separated from the harmony within that was meant to exist. In speaking out about the tragedy that she and others in her country have lived through, this brave young refugee exemplifies the need to talk about abusive experiences in order for self-healing to take place.

One thing that I’ve had to learn as a survivor of childhood sexual abuse is that I’ve had to deal with not only the self-destructive feelings in the aftermath of the abuse, but also with the physical repercussions of feeling isolated from everyone else in my life. My own experience, although not nearly as tragic as Yeon-mi’s, once brought me to the same place: looking up at the stars and wondering if anyone anywhere even cared about me.

One thing about keeping secrets is that, for the purpose of keeping someone else’s confidence, such promises ‘not to tell anyone’ are proper morals in our society. However, when someone has abused you and threatened you not to tell anyone, the corrosive nature of that twisted confidentiality gradually eats away at you from within. Too many people are walking around today, like I used to, with self-destructive tendencies because of the shameful secrets of victimization that have led to withdrawal, depression, self-medication and uncharacteristic behavior.

We survivors of abuse must speak out, because it’s the only way to stop the deterioration 0105-4x5color.aiof our being and start the healing process. We did nothing wrong, but bear the shame and guilt of having been violated, often by the people we were supposed to have trusted most. Unless we break through the fear and finally tell a friend, family member or seek professional help, the hurt will keep festering away within. Not only does the aftermath of abuse cause emotional and mental difficulty and ongoing trauma to our bodies, it also impacts our spiritual selves in a vicious cycle of pernicious negativity. Fortunately I found a way to work within with my spirit, so that I was able to stop the cycle to regain my self-esteem, dignity and self-heal over time.

It’s clear that, no matter how difficult it is to come forward, we must speak out loudly against abuse and oppression, so that depravity and corruption of power can be exposed and curtailed. And equally as important, instead of being judgmental, we must listen to others and be understanding of their experience. Otherwise, at the planetary and personal levels, we could all be complicit in allowing such atrocities to continue to happen to the world’s children.

The next time you look up at the stars, realize that you’re not the only one who has gazed upon them either in wonderment or for solace – we are all stars in the mesh of humanity!

Infusing Change Into 2017

Trampler 14: Glittering star cluster.At this time of the year many of us are reflecting upon our past year, and find ourselves speculating about how to approach 2017. I always think of each New Year as an opportunity for a brighter future, when we can let go of past fears, be grateful for who we are right now, and renew our efforts to make the kind of positive changes we want to enhance our future.

Before we start any new endeavour, we first have to clean our mind slate of all the unpleasant memories of past difficulties, so that we can initiate our fresh start in full confidence. Once we identify that we are capable of succeeding and breaking through the boundaries that may have deterred us in the past, we can be creative in effecting the changes that we want to make in our lives. While visualizing a realistic outcome for our uniquely remarkable goals, we can use our higher-level skills to remove lingering doubt and apprehension, so that we can boldly and strategically execute our plans.

As we regularly acknowledge our appreciation for who we are and what we’ve accomplished so far, we can be more NGC 248 in Small Magellanic Cloudinnovative as we forge forward into uncharted territory. If we recognize that our spiritual existence impacts us at the physical level, we can begin to reconcile the disparity between suffering and extravagance in our world in a more fundamental way. Rather than accepting divisive social and economic boundaries, in our plans we could include bridges to assist those who are making efforts to get to the other side of their struggle. Furthermore, when we work at the spiritual level we work in the immediacy of the present, at the precise time in which we can receive inspiration that nurtures our ingenuity to bring effective solutions to complex problems at all levels.

Through making firm commitments to both ourselves and to our individual spirits, we initiate the higher-level processes that stimulate our mental capacity to effectively bring about the positive changes that we desire. Strong commitments at the higher level inevitably result in a more focused and deliberate approach toward our goals. This high level of commitment perpetuates the strength and stamina necessary to help us through the process of implementing our unique vision in the coming and future years.

Sun Brightened CloudsIn addition to our individual efforts toward positive change, we can also celebrate our diversity as global participants in a challenging world in which we are unique spiritual beings. If we were to view our existence as a tangible expression of our spirits’ pursuit of knowledge, we could better understand and care about each other and the world in which we live. In effect, we could view each New Year as a symbolic steppingstone within our personal evolution toward spiritual progress.

Let’s infuse 2017 with ongoing positive changes at all levels of our being!

Preserving the Spiritual Self

hs-1995-44-b-webEven as we strive to better our human condition through science and technology, inside each of us is a largely untapped reservoir of wisdom that has been neglected, ignored or dismissed throughout modern history. Within each of us is a unique sentient being who is either allowing negativity to interfere with us, or who is waiting for us to wake up and start utilizing the higher level skills that could improve our wellbeing at a grand scale.

While we all begin our lives with inherent spiritual knowledge that could extend into adulthood, too many children face neglect, bullying and abuse that interferes with their happiness, health and spiritual strength. Few can grasp the extent to which a child’s life changes after they’ve suffered abuse, and the way in which these scars heal can determine how difficult one’s life will be. Moreover, the effects of abuse on children is more than psychological, reaching into the very essence of their being and, more often than not, resulting in a spiritual malaise that can further deteriorate their wellbeing on an ongoing basis.

When children bully other children, we becomeBalloons on the Ground outraged because their behaviour is unacceptable.  However, the behavior of adults who bully, accuse, criticize, threaten and abuse children with the excuse of protectiveness or discipline is not only inexcusable or unforgiveable, it also causes irreparable damage at the spiritual level. Once a child’s innocence has been shattered by the frightening experiences of abuse, it can either bring a lifetime of shame, guilt and low self-esteem, or it can trigger a self-preservation instinct that results in constant restructuring, adaptation and determination toward self-preservation. Once their trust in authority figures has been shattered, many survivors of childhood abuse find it very difficult to ask for help and they often become alienated while their spiritual strength weakens over time.

Leo Jean's Starlike© paper sculptures atop colorful glass on resin baseThose of us who have been mistreated in this world under so many different circumstances struggle not only to overcome the mental, emotional and physical aftermath, but also to deal with the ongoing negative interference that occurs at the higher level. Through my many years as a spiritual problem solver, I’ve learned to identify and eliminate the negative elements extending from higher levels that linger and interfere with one’s wellbeing long after an abusive event that are not recognized or treated through other means.

From my own experience as a child who grew up in rather extreme poverty, I was subjected to various incidents of abuse, as a result of my vulnerability to and trust in the ‘pillars’ of my community. In elementary school, the fathers of some schoolmates made it clear to their wives in my presence that my impoverished appearance made me an unsuitable playmate for their children. (A great way to teach children social skills!) Not long afterward, I was sexually abused and threatened by the village parish priest. (Such a significant religious lesson!) Several years later, the high school counselor accused me of cheating on an IQ test, because he thought my grades did not match my high IQ score. (Definitely how to counsel and guide a child!) Although these other events in my life led to feelings of worthlessness and a state of confusion, I never ceased looking for solution until I found out how to work with my spirit.

BalloonsNasaIn order to protect ourselves at the spiritual level and to withstand the onslaught of negativity that many of us face on this planet, it takes effort and commitment to progress at the spiritual level. Even if spiritual ground has been lost, we are all equipped with a connection to our spiritual aspect that can be restituted from its idle state and put to use! While practicing to refuse and remove the elements of negative interference, we can develop a strong positive spiritual connection using the Light* that will continue to generate sustainable energy at all levels of our being.

As we properly preserve and nurture our spirits, we provide them with spiritual integrity and positive knowledge to help them progress on their timeless journeys.

Spiritual Orientation

LayeredSkylineOur mere glimpse upon life seems myopic, compared to the broad vista upon which our spirits gaze. Whether we realize it or not, each one of us is part of our spirit’s timeless journey, making our lives of paramount importance in providing and developing a positive spiritual orientation.

At conception a person’s spirit already possesses its positive or negative orientation from its many experiences in the timeless cosmos. Just because a child is born in physical innocence doesn’t mean that its creation spirit might not have been through many lifetimes in which it adhered to negative principles. In too many cases, a spirit brings with it a tendency toward negativity that can influence its physical body. If a child were to have a negatively oriented spirit, it could be easily inspired to accept and display negative behavior and malaise. However, if that same child were to be introduced to the positive knowledge of the Light*, they would have a chance to bring positive energy to their spirit and, over time, their negatively oriented spirit could change its ways and redirect itself toward a positive existence.

Even when a spirit is positively oriented at conception, there will still be work to do at the physical level to counteract the negativity that it faces during this lifetime. What I’ve learned is that a spirit can’t progress unless it’s in a body and, once in a form, a spirit is subject to the conditioning that is presented. Simply because of the overwhelming amount of negativity on our planet, there will inevitably be opposition to a spirit that is positively oriented.

As a small child I could see the twinkling sparkle of my spirit and marveled at the sight of it, even though I didn’t know what it was – how sad I didn’t even recognize my own beautiful spirit! It didn’t take long until I was being challenged by negative spirits in the guise of familiar or trusted forms, like those that entered my dream state, or like the priest who sexually abused me. That particular event threw me off course, and I began accepting negatively oriented activities that created even more difficulty. In spite of my disillusionment, I still had a sincere yearning for harmony within, likely as a result of my spirit’s desire to progress. Once I was introduced to positive spiritual knowledge, I began to infuse my spirit with positive energy and I became enthusiastic about helping my spirit to progress.

Star Cluster NGC 2074

While we would all like to believe that our spiritual orientation is positive, there are many elements of negativity that interfere with our personal and collective wellbeing. There isconstant negativity bombarding the airwaves, not just from the TV and internet, but from the negatively oriented people living on our planet who are incessantly bombarding everyone with their negative energy and spiritual malaise. While so many of us are striving to live in a positive constructive fashion, we are constantly being challenged and drained by those who thrive on negativity.

One of the deterrents to a peaceful existence is that there are so many higher-level destructive elements that attract negativity in the form of negative spirits and energy to our planet. Instead of promoting our collective progress as positively oriented spirits, we tend to neglect the very essence of our being and leave our spirits weak and vulnerable. A spirit that is positively oriented cannot consistently tolerate negativity and can lose strength, unless its form harnesses the ability to counteract negativity. If we were to become more knowledgeable and positively oriented at the spiritual level, we could bring lasting harmony to our planet.

The significance of our short-term existence can be measured in how we direct our spirits toward the positive spiritual progress they can embrace widely into their limitless perspective.

LOVE & Your Spirit

"Glowing Hearts" by Leo Jean (aka Leo's Logo)Even though Valentine’s Day might seem a rather trivial holiday, I really enjoy seeing the symbol of LOVE everywhere!

All the love we experience in our lives appears to be rooted first in our family, then our friends, eventually in a partner/spouse and, finally, in our children. It’s so natural and heartwarming to feel the positive emotions associated with love! Love is attainable by all, and each of us should have the opportunity to experience love in our lives.

Through my work I’ve observed many times that, when a child begins to love him/her self, they begin to start caring about how another child loves him/herself. This domino effect involving self-love impacts children, not only physically, mentally and emotionally but, most importantly, spiritually.

This is one of my favorite Starlike© paper art sculptures by Leo Jean. It represents self-love, as shown by the 3 stars on the heart: my spirit, my higher self and my body. The square is covered on 5 sides by stacked paper stars of various colors, the dimensions of my being into which I extend my self-love.

Once someone acknowledges self-love, they are then able to truly extend love to another person and to accept love back. Not only is it mutually beneficial at the physical level, it’s the knowing and acceptance of the self that increases our physical positivity, presenting our individual spirits with the platform from which to progress toward a positive state.

When someone experiences self-love, this positive state of being allows them to prepare their body for spiritual progress and to become more aware of others’ spiritual status. In turn, this awareness brings a greater understanding of the spiritual state of people close to us and, in the greater picture, of the impact of our spiritual progress as a whole.

fbheartstarlike1Hopefully, the spiritual aspect of our world can evolve dynamically from its incorrigible negativity into a fundamentally positive state. Perhaps, if love for oneself were more important, people could start caring for themselves, for each other, and for our planet.

Valentine’s Day is a great time to reflect upon those we love and the essential energy that love generates for us – and our timeless spirits ­– as we move through this existence together.

Spiritual to Physical Transfer

Tall Pink CloudPart of my work involves helping people to become aware of the ways in which they accept negativity and how they can properly refuse it.  It might be helpful to know how spiritual vibrations can pass from the spiritual level to the physical level, so that you can become aware of how to refuse the influence and avoid entangling yourself in this way.

When a spiritual vibration is summoned, it automatically responds, since that is a natural activity for a spirit.  When I remove spiritual negativity/spirits from someone, I remove the exact vibration of each spirit because I’ve acquired the knowledge to do so through my 30 years of work.  In the beginning, I learned to say the vibration/name out loud, and my partner would pick up that spiritual negativity/spirit.  Over time I  became so skilled that I now identify and remove the precise vibrations at the higher level.

There are other ways besides entering a person that a spirit can attach itself to someone.  One common way is for someone to place a spiritually negative vibration into an inanimate object and give it to someone else.  For instance, I was startled to discover this phenomenon many years ago when my ex-husband had offered his wedding ring for me to keep when we split up.  Fortunately, my partner, as the mediator of this transaction, had placed the ring inside of a small plastic bottle and, when he showed it to me, he asked me not to touch it.  In order to show me that the ring was housing some powerful spiritual negativity/spirits, he placed the ring on its edge on a table and asked for me to observe it.  When he let go of the ring, it suddenly began to vibrate with an energy that increased the vibratory pattern over the next few seconds.  I learned that, if I had touched it, I would have accepted some spiritual negativity/spirits and, in that way, I would have allowed the negativity to transfer to me.

MonkeyHead Nebula PillarAnother similar example of a spiritual to physical transfer brings to mind a request by a young man who phoned from Scandinavia several years ago.  While I spoke to him, he was beside himself with desperation as to how he could rid himself of the negativity that he realized he had accepted.  He told me that he had gone to a party in a neighboring country several weeks before and that someone had passed an object around the room and everyone was supposed to hold it for a moment.  Immediately upon holding the object, the young man told me that he never felt the same again.  He had been having nightmares, headaches and aches and pains all over his body.  He could no longer rest, let alone sleep and he was unable to go to work anymore.  His story was dramatic, but very plausible, given the nature of spirits and how they can be transferred to people in the manner he described.  I asked the young man to call back in a couple of hours, when we would be able to help him over the phone.  When we worked with him to remove the spiritual negativity/spirits that he had accepted, he had been so overcome with pain that he actually screamed out as we did the healing.  This never happens and I could tell that whatever he had accepted was tied to a much larger source of negativity.  While this young man had a great sensitivity to such spiritual negativity, those whose spirits are negatively oriented would be largely unaffected by this higher-level transfer.

Leo Jean's Starlike© paper sculpture atop flowing bottle

Spirits especially like to inhabit materials such as metal, crystal and minerals, but can enter practically anything.  People can unwittingly or purposefully summon spirits that can enter objects, so it’s important not to accept them by refusing them at all levels.  I used to think that no one would willingly want to bring spiritual negativity/spirits into objects, but many are influenced at the higher level to do just that.  A good rule to follow is to ‘hit’ objects with the Light* (i.e direct the Light into them) when you sense there might be something about it that interferes with you.

While no one should be afraid of spiritual negativity/spirits, you should be aware of how to refuse them properly.  By learning to work with your spirit and the Light, you will protect and free yourself from negative influences.

Why NOT to Summon Spirits

PinkEdgedCloudwpPeople summon spirits for different reasons and, while some call in spirits deliberately, others do it inadvertently.  Either way, there are many misconceptions about the summoning of spirits that can lead to unintentional consequences.

If you’re naïve enough to think you can summon a spirit or spirits for some useful purpose, you need to give it a lot more consideration.  From my experiences of helping people to remove persistent negativity, I can tell you that any spirit that you think you’re calling in might respond in a manner completely contrary to your original intention.

Lots of people are interested in the practice of summoning a spirit guide, ‘angel’ or other supposedly beneficial being, because they think they’re going to be provided with assistance or needed information.  The practice of inviting a spirit to act as one’s spirit guide or for any other reason is a precarious spiritual practice that can potentially cause harm.  So-called spirit guides can offer little for your wellbeing, but are masters at deception.

Spirits exist in a realm of existence where they often act in very unpredictable ways.  Most act in unity with other spirits with definite goals, but there are many that act in a random manner.  All target people that are vulnerable.  If you summon a spirit for any reason, you will attract an idle spirit or group of spirits to your invitation.  And you wouldn’t know the difference!

People are conditioned to summon spirits, likely because it’s an accepted ancient practice in every ‘place of worship’ on the planet.  Although people think their prayers are beneficial, the practice is actually an open invitation to an unlimited number of spirits to enter their presence.  A single spirit or groups of spirits will continue to hang around each of the attendees long after they’ve left the building.  People pray because the spirits that respond will often give them temporary relief from their problems but, in actuality, those spirits will remain with them indefinitely, often with much different outcomes.

My Sky Golden

How do those who are summoning/praying/chanting know which being they’re actually summoning?  In reality, they have no idea! Even if someone is calling on a specific deity, angel, deceased person or other spiritual being, anyone in the spiritual realm can respond.  Spirits around the earth are negatively oriented beings, and any number of idle spirits is just waiting for the chance to attach to unsuspecting people.

Once a spirit has been summoned it’s extremely hard to get rid of it, because it’s their negative nature to make every attempt to attach to the person that summoned them.  The consequences of this negative interference is even more detrimental to your spirit and can cause it to be increasingly isolated from you.

From the perspective of someone who has spent many years learning and teaching positive spiritual knowledge, I can advise that the only spirit that you should associate with is your own spirit, because it’s the only way to safely interact with the spiritual world.

Working with your own spirit and the Light* is the only reliable method to obtain positive results from spiritual interaction, so why not learn how?

Spiritual Strength | The Benefits

Planetary Nebula NGC 2818, Hubble Space TelescopeThe recent discovery of the fossilized remains of Homo naledi in a South African cave suggests that our primitive ancestors displayed burial practices long before previously thought. Rather than having developed this behavior over millennia, are we innately spiritual beings who have always contemplated our timeless spiritual journey beyond this finite physical existence?

We could even speculate that our spirits had lives before ours, perhaps somewhere else in the grand cosmos, and that they were once powerfully and positively attuned within their former bodies. Were that true, then what’s happened to our spirit-body relationship? Why don’t we let go of the negativity we drag around and allow our spirits to work in healthful unison within us? And what should we do with our spiritual strength, after we’ve put so much effort into helping our spirits increase their positive knowledge and power?

It’s my belief that our lives are inspired by higher-level guidance from our spiritual selves. If our spirits are positive when we come into this world, but we’re ignorant or closed to their direction, then our consciousness would become clouded with the input that we do allow to infiltrate our minds. If we become cut off from positively-oriented inspiration, then our mental and emotional impressions could become inundated with negativity that interferes with our wellbeing at all levels.

From my own perspective as someone who had extricated myself from the complacency of religious conditioning at a very young age, my spiritual weakness only became apparent after I hit rock bottom. From a very promising childhood with a positively oriented spirit I had descended from being a straight A student in elementary school to becoming a victim of domestic violence. Childhood abuse had caused a downslide in my spiritual strength that continued into adulthood, until I reached a state that threatened my health and safety.

Sunlight in Cave

I had continued to allow people to take advantage of my good nature, abuse and otherwise mistreatme, until one day I read an article in Psychology Today (c. 1985) in which the author noted that rape victims who were not treated soon after their abuse event would continue to suffer worsening symptoms over time. Over a matter of hours that thought led me through heightening anxiety to a profound realization when I said to myself: “I’m going to fight!”

I believe it was at that moment that I gave my spirit the go ahead to start helping me. Instead of just accepting all the negativity that was being hammered upon me, I was suddenly inspired to make my escape from a severely abusive relationship. Until then I had not taken any action to defend myself against the onslaught of negativity that had been weakening me, not just mentally, emotionally and physically, but especially, spiritually. Thankfully, soon after the abrupt turn in my determination, I found my mentor (and later, partner) who presented me with the means by which I was able to climb out of the depths of my sorry situation.

From my starting point 30 years ago, my consistent attention to my spirit as an essential part of me continues to yield significant improvements in my overall wellbeing. As a result of learning how to properly use the positive energy of pure white universal Light*, my spiritual strength has continued to build, and I’ve been able share positive higher-level knowledge with my clients around the world.

Some of the benefits of a dynamic positive spirit-body relationship include:

  1. Loving and accepting yourself completely for who you are
  2. Developing calmness and patience while increasing your focus, concentration and endurance
  3. Working with your higher self (the liaison with your spirit) to assist you with better decision-making and implementation of positive change
  4. Motivating and improving your creative expression
  5. Heightening your awareness to identify negative interference
  6. Using your spiritual sensitivity to deal with inter-dimensional influences
  7. Facilitating the adoption of positive habits, activities and relationships as you learn to counteract the obstacles
  8. Increasing your overall energy and enthusiasm
  9. Using the positive energy of the Light to bring balance and improve your health at all levels
  10. Emanating inner happiness into your present and future life experience

Sunshine thru RocksAt the end of the day, there’s only you and your spirit. So, why not acknowledge your spiritual self as an integral part of your present being? When you come to a point in your life when your understanding of your physical existence relative to your spirit’s timeless nature becomes important, you might want to begin working within with your spirit.

The remarkable results of gaining positive spiritual strength will enhance your wellbeing at all levels and promote your spiritual progress.

Spiritual Strength | Gaining It

M27 HubbleSitewpEven as we shape the pieces of our existential puzzle together relative to the apparent universe enveloping us, we remain lagging behind with the spiritual advancement that could alter our lives both individually and collectively when approached from a positive perspective. Gaining spiritual strength isn’t a competition – it’s a personal endeavor that requires focus and attention over a lifetime.

When we’re small children, working with our spiritual self is as natural as asking for something to eat or drink. As an essential part of our childhood, we naturally identified the positives and negatives of our spiritual activity and acted accordingly. We might have continued our spiritual savvy long into life, but most of us have been conditioned to leave behind our inherent spiritual knowledge. Many of us faced further obstacles like neglect, bullying or abuse and were adversely affected onward into our lives, and further separated from our spiritual selves.

The further a child drifts from his/her sense of harmony with their spirit, they lose a natural state of wellbeing and the ability to deal with the higher-level negativity that constantly bombards them. If someone continues to lose ground spiritually, the repercussions can filter through to the physical level in the form of physiological and mental malaise and/or financial and relationship problems. Not everyone finds strength of healing through traditional means because there are often spiritual issues at hand that can block and deter the healing process.

JulyClouds

From my own perspective as an intelligent enthusiastic child, my world had spiraled downward as I lost spiritual knowledge and strength as a result of a clergy abuse event. At an early age I recognized the inadequacy of available antiquated religious institutions and dropped my family’s traditions.  I felt lost and off balance for many years and remember searching for some sort of harmony in my life, but I didn’t realize that my physical problems had escalated into a spiritual crisis.

When I regained the inherent knowledge of how to work with my spirit and started working with the Light*, I began building up my spiritual strength and positive changes took effect immediately. I experienced a boost in my self-esteem and adopted a completely new perspective about how to look after my physical self. I discovered that my spirit needs a positively oriented body in order to make progress, so I initiated a continuously healthy lifestyle. I realized it’s my responsibility to strive to be as positive as possible in all aspects of my being, if I’m to continue to grow in spiritual strength and positive knowledge.

Sunlight Thru Ocean CloudswpOne of the greatest obstacles to gaining spiritual strength is fear. When you give in to fear of any kind, like fear of failure or success, fear of others’ acceptance or rejection or fear of changing your current situation in life, you’re succumbing to negativity. As you start being yourself and working through all the steps needed to overcome your fears, you’ll notice a boost in your ability to counteract negative thoughts and emotions before they give rise to additional difficulty.

Spiritual strength doesn’t come instantly – it takes effort and commitment. Some people have been duped into quick fixes such as accepting spirit guides, angels, or summoning the spirits of deceased loved ones, as a way to gain spiritual strength; while others have been invited to accept a stranger’s life energy.  Any of these ruses would be a clear opportunity for negative beings/spirits to be invited into ruining your life. Others have decided to join a religious institution with the hope it would take over their spiritual responsibility, but are often led into a false sense of complacency. It’s impossible to learn how to gain strength with your spirit in a few hours or by depending on others – you have to be committed to this very personal endeavor on a long-term basis, since spiritual strength intensifies over time.Mountain Vista

Everyone has the potential to be good at personal spiritual work, but becoming strong spiritually doesn’t come without effort. No one can hand you access to the positive energy of the Light. You have to earn its benefits on a daily basis by meeting negative challenges with determined positive reactions and solutions. Higher-level negativity can be much less obvious than what you already recognize, especially when it emanates from other people and their associations with others. Your perseverance in being patient and acquiring awareness of higher-level negativity will allow you to continuously gain stamina to meet new challenges.

Sunbrushed Lake CloudsOur spirits transcend this physical existence, yet it’s up to us to consciously promote our spiritual progress. While climbing each cliff to overcome negativity, then coasting conscientiously along the plateaus until meeting the next hurdle, you’ll grow stronger as your spirit gains strength due to your efforts.

Gaining spiritual strength is a process of learning, adapting and following through with a lifelong commitment to work positively alongside your spirit to enhance your life experience.

Sexual Abuse is Spiritually Devastating

calmbeachwpThe recent revelations by the dozens of women about having been drugged and sexually assaulted at the hands of the so-called ‘iconic family man’, Bill Cosby, brings to mind the plight of the thousands of children around the world who have been sexually assaulted by Roman Catholic priests. Because of my own experience at the hands of a middle-aged priest when I was a child, this ongoing saga of sexual exploitation of women rings especially loud and clear.

For the now dozens of women who have accused Mr. Cosby of these abhorrent acts, there has since been no peace in their lives. They all relate how they had lived with the pain of their experience, due to the way they had been lured into the sole company of the perpetrator then drugged into unconsciousness, so that he could have his way with them. However, they were either afraid to tell anyone because they were afraid no one would believe them or, as many of them have stated, even their friends, family or bosses never believed them when they did speak up because their stories seemed so incredible.  We should all be outraged at the behavior of this sexual predator and collectively defrock Mr. Cosby of his celebrity status as these women seek legal recourse after the Statute of Limitation has passed for a criminal proceeding.

When I listen to all of these women’s stories about being drugged and raped by a prominent celebrity, their intense emotions of anger and betrayal bring back the terror of my own experience when I was only 10 years old. I had been ‘drugged’ into the belief system of the RC church and then lured into a situation where I was alone with a 40ish revered man. I was raped by an angry priest for making prank phone calls in the church basement while I was teaching catechism (tenets of the faith) to younger children who were attending the village public school.

Just as most of those women had had aspirations of furthering their acting careers in trusting Mr. Cosby, innocent young children like me have been placed in the hands of sexual perverts in the hopes of gaining spiritual favor through the RC church. We thought it was a privilege to be asked by such prominent people in our lives to spend time with them. We were sadly mistaken.

Stormy Sky

Even though it’s difficult to listen those adult victims talk about their nightmarish lives after their sexual assaults, children have much more difficulty dealing with the aftermath of such a breach of trust. From my own experience, I know how difficult it has been to overcome the enormous emotional pain and suffering. I understand their helplessness in not being believed, yet I had been threatened with the destruction of my entire family if I dared tell anyone what the priest had done to me. That was a massive responsibility, so I kept the event a secret until I couldn’t handle it anymore.

Thanks to the actions of the judge that unsealed Mr. Cosby’s 2005 deposition, I sincerely hope that the information now coming forward will vindicate these women and lead to some much needed healing, as their stories become believable in the court of public opinion. Rather than simply dismiss their stories, we all need to listen to women and children when they claim they’ve been sexually abused, because the vast majority of us don’t make up such sorrowful stories on a whim or to gain attention.

Relaxing SunsetLike these women I was a strong enough person to persevere through a hellish 20 years after the rape, but I was also a very spiritual person who had seen through the façade of religion and kept searching for an approach to spirituality that wasn’t tied to any organization or institution. It was only when I met my mentor that I was able to once again connect with my spiritual self and regain my dignity.

If you’re an abuse survivor, and the Statute of Limitation in your location has already passed, in order to start healing at all levels, you can:

  1. Forgive yourself. You’ve done nothing wrong. Don’t feel like you ever have to forgive the despicable brute that abused you.
  1. Love yourself. Start accepting yourself for who you are. Recognize and nurture your inner beauty.
  1. Practice calmness. Unchecked anxiety is detrimental to your physical health. Relax through regular exercise and quiet time in nature.
  1. Start self-healing by looking after yourself. Eat healthy and get proper sleep. Refrain from self-medicating through the use of drugs and alcohol. Find someone and/or a professional you trust to talk to about the abuse and allow their counsel as constructive, rather than critical.
  1. Start working with your spirit by actively bringing in the pure white Light* and using it to remove the negativity you feel mentally, emotionally and physically. Do your best to refuse the spiritual negativity that has accumulated from all the ongoing negativity you’ve experienced. I specialize in removing latent spiritual negativity and can help in this area.

Sexual abuse offends us at the highest level of our being and can potentially fracture our spiritual connection irreparably. Apart from the mental, emotional and social healing process, there is still a lot of spiritual work to do to emerge from the nightmare.

Positive Headway

WaveThe ideal morality we aspired to as children is constantly being challenged as we reconcile the discrepancy between an idyllic world and the reality we experience. If we were to instead view life simply in terms of positive and negative, it would help make sense of what happens at all levels of our being.

While most of us will generally agree upon what is positive and what is negative, much of our evaluation is subjective, based on our own values, conditioning and past experiences. We can more easily assess the remaining gray areas with the help of higher-level skills acquired through daily practice.

At a larger scale we see how corruption runs rampant in our government, religious and corporate institutions, and we eventually become desensitized to deception, hypocrisy and greed. Since we’re unable to do anything significant about their actions, we can only assess whether the institution makes a positive or negative contribution to our personal lives. There’s no need to become upset by the blatant negativity expressed by governments, religions and corporations – why not just evaluate them as either positive or negative and move on?

In our own personal lives, at this level we have the power to make positive changes to enhance our life situation. But it’s not always easy to rid ourselves of the lingering negativity of the past, unless we have some tools to help us remove those barriers to having a positive life. We’ve all been conditioned to accept so much negativity unopposed into our lives that we often can’t distinguish the difference anymore. Amazing changes can be made when we stop allowing its detrimental effect on our wellbeing!

On a daily basis we make decisions about the positive and negative nature of our relationships, our workplace environment and our general wellbeing. It helps to regard our relationships as either positive or negative to manage the emotions we generally feel about people. Evaluating a coworker or boss as a positive or negative in the workplace also helps to diminish their influence on our energy and concentration. We can make more intelligent health and wealth decisions based on the positive or negative nature of each consideration. In this way we can stop accepting higher-level interference and enjoy who we are, the benefits of what we’ve achieved and the reasons for what we’re doing at the present time.

Ocean Surface

At the spiritual level we are constantly swimming against the tide of negativity and devising ways of staying afloat in positive mode. As we progress and attain higher-level skills, we become more adept at maintaining our balance on the crests of the waves. As we find ourselves maneuvering through each trough, we swim with stronger strokes to rise up and continue riding upon a crest again. Each day on the ocean of life can be exhilarating, when we apply higher-level knowledge to facilitate our journey.

Ocean CloudsYour spirit is much more sensitive to and affected by the negativity you accept or reject at all levels.   When you learn to regard people, places and inanimate things as either positive or negative, it helps you to overcome unpleasant past occurrences, improve your present situation and move you into a brighter future. If you want your spirit to be more positive, then you have to put effort into identifying and refusing the negative influences that interfere with you at any given moment.

Making a commitment to be positive at all levels is of paramount importance to the wellbeing of our individual spirits, so being able to refuse the negatives and promote the positives in our lives makes us better navigators of these undulating waters of life.

Inner Essentials

Spiral Galaxy NGC 7742 Even as astronomers scour the galaxy for signs of extraterrestrial life in the billions of locations that are potentially suited to sustain complex organisms, there are so many questions about our existence that need to be explored and discovered at the higher levels of our being. Instead, we are still fighting the endless conflicts of religion and politics that continue to divide and create greater disparity between us. In the micro-cosmos that begins here within each and every one of us, there is still great progress to be made toward reaching a harmonious balance that includes all aspects of our existence.

As young children, when our emotional, physical and spiritual worlds were still melded in wholesomeness, our inner happiness and peace could shine through in youthful energy. However, for many of us there were rips or tears in our emotional world as a result of abuse that permeated our spiritual wellbeing. Just as a black hole rips through the fabric of the universe absorbing matter at an astonishing rate, an abusive event can rip through the structure of a child’s spiritual self, visibly eating away at their overall health.

Niagara Whirlpool Rapids

Each time a child is bullied or abused, the experience  weakens the framework thatbinds his/her spiritual self to their emotional and physical selves. Ongoing abusive experiences can further rip a child’s spiritual self from them, leading to mental and physical distress that can end in addiction, lasting depression or crumbling physical health. However, similar to how closer investigation of black holes in the universe can potentially answer age old questions about our very existence in the cosmos, peering into the spiritual void initiated during a traumatic event can bring understanding of oneself and allow the spark of inner harmony to begin.

The other day I was watching a documentary about the Greek islands1 and I found the description of the island of Kos especially interesting. In one location on the island, the ancient Greeks divided the focus of their healing process into three parts: the physical body, the soul or emotional body and the spiritual body, and provided different venues for healing each aspect. The Greek guide made it clear that the ancients’ meaning of the ‘soul’ was not the same as their meaning of the ‘spirit’. While the basic balances of a natural healing process have become increasingly complicated by scientific treatment, the ancient Greeks seemed to understand the need for an integrated approach to wellness.

As adults we’re still children within, striving to bring balance to our ongoing physical, mental and emotional experiences. It can be quite a juggling act to keep everything going with the right rhythm and timing, as we keep compensating for all the hurts, guilt, fear and other negative emotional waves that have caused imbalance within us. In addition to filling the spiritual gap with the positive energies of self-love, self-forgiveness and daily effort toward a brighter future, we have to get rid of the negative spiritual influences that obstruct overall health.

Tranquil PathA healthy spiritual self is paramount to all aspects of our wellbeing and our choices in how we approach our spirituality can make a difference. There appear to be spiritual extroverts who like to express their spiritual beliefs in the company of others and spiritual introverts who prefer to experience spirituality in solitude. While spiritual dependence on others can interfere with our spirits’ needs, our time alone is most likely the best test for overall balance, because our thoughts, emotions and energy are our own. In the absence of inner harmony, our individual spirits can be adversely affected by the influence of the cumulative negativity that can curtail the body’s ability to self heal.

When you work in harmony with your spirit, you’ll naturally be more mindful and capable of promoting wellness at all levels of your being.

Energize Your Spirit

EarthHorizonAlong with focusing on your physical, mental and emotional health, how much thought do you give to how you can further enhance your wellbeing by energizing at the spiritual level? Although you probably don’t realize it, your spirit has the amazing ability to revitalize and inspire you when you learn how to keep it properly recharged.

Many of us get tired from the tediousness of our daily routines and we can always use more energy to keep up with the pace. Apart from the many known physical ways to increase your energy, you can do more by decreasing the amount of higher-level energy draining and increasing your energy charge.

Through my work I’ve found that most people are unwittingly drained of their energy through higher-level sources that interlace our reality. You can be inadvertently depleted of your energy through your contact with people, animals, places and inanimate objects that absorb energy from you. There is latent negativity present almost everywhere on this planet, so learning how to detect, resist and deflect this inter-dimensional interference can bring renewed energy to you at all levels.

While there are plenty of obvious sources of higher-level energy draining, some seem less evident because they’ve become generally accepted practices. For instance, the sites of ancient civilizations where the inhabitants fought battles and made blood sacrifices are blatantly saturated with lingering negativity. However, we tend to overlook the sites of present-day religious institutions where those in attendance continuously feed off of each other’s energy. Another example of how negativity can be transmitted from one person to another is when an old friend keeps telling you all their problems, yet does nothing to change their habits or lifestyle to improve their condition. After your conversations, they feel elated, while you walk away feeling drained and off balance.

WildSky

Although we all try to be as positive as possible, some of us have been inflicted with the ongoing effects of early neglect, bullying or abuse in our lives that surfaces and causes a loss of vitality. During the many years in which I’ve been working with my spirit, I’ve progressively grown more energetic from the understanding of how to benefit from the positive energy available from my essential aspect. Through a systematic effort of infusing my spirit with positive energy over time, I’ve learned to strengthen not only my physical form, but I’ve increasingly enabled my spirit to overcome spiritual negativity on a massive scale. As I replenish my spirit from the ‘Light’, a universal source that is comprised of essentially pure positive energy, the beneficial effects filter to all aspects of my being.

There are many myths about how to increase your positivity through spiritual means. No one can give you positive energy, so I would never recommend that you allow someone to provide you with their energy, because you would never know what else you’d be accepting from them. And you can disregard any rumor that you can protect yourself with a bubble or dome of ‘Light’ – all light must travel or it ceases to exist. The ‘Light’ will not flow through a negative energy field so, in order to properly recharge your spirit with this positive energy source, it’s important to deal with and discard the negativity  that you’ve already accepted and learn how to avoid future acceptance at all levels.

Once we’ve removed the sources of negativity that interfere with our use of the ‘Light’, we can quickly deliver its energy to our spirit, so it can recharge its own energy as the Light passes through. Your spirit will appreciate your efforts to bring it this positive energy, since it relies on your efforts to progress while it’s with you.

When you energize your spirit with the ‘Light’, you bring positive energy to enhance all aspects of your being.

What is a Spirit?

MonkeyHead Nebula PillarMost of us assume that we know what a spirit is, but you might be surprised at how little knowledge we’ve retained about our spiritual nature – your own spirit quite possibly remains the least understood and most important aspect of your existence!

A spirit sparks the energy of life into an embryo in order to progress during that life experience, but relies on the conscious efforts of its form to conduct that progress. While we would like to think that all spirits have good intentions, a spirit doesn’t necessarily work in the best interests of its physical form. Over its timeless existence a spirit’s intent can be compromised and its knowledge of progress can be misinterpreted or forgotten, leading a spirit to create indefinite hardship for its physical forms.

A spirit’s character is a result of its timeless journey, much like we are the product of our own life experiences. A spirit that was once well-intended may have become frustrated with the inability of its forms to allow it to progress in a meaningful way. Another way that a spirit can become negatively oriented is because it relates its progress in negative instead of positive terms, so it nurtures negativity in its life experiences.

Through my many years of working with people to ensure their healthy connection with their spirit, I’ve found that a surprising number of people have allowed more than one spirit into their forms. In moments of weakness, such as when they’ve experienced emotional episodes of intense fear, anger, hatred or despair, individuals have unwittingly allowed spirits with negative intentions to enter their body. The life consequences of such spiritual negativity can be devastating at all levels of their being.

Shining Horizon.11.2013

A spirit creates a form with the expectation that it will be able to progress, but it’s dependent on its body for direction. Most of us are taught a religious notion of what a spirit or ‘soul’ is, so that we relinquish the responsibility for our spirit to some institution, rather than work with it. A spirit can become imprisoned in its body, accompanied by additional spirits that are permitted entry, or it will leave or be ousted altogether.

If a spirit exists solo in a body, then the positive activities of its form can propel it to a higher state of strength and knowledge. However, if the body is open to other spirits, there’s little chance for a spirit to grow stronger, and it will gradually lose ground. That’s what happened to my spirit when I was a child, since I was taught that my spirit or ‘soul’ belonged to a supreme being that would punish me with eternal damnation if I strayed from the doctrines of my religion. The very fear of that incredible notion, along with my complete spiritual dependency on an institution, made my own spirit idly unable to help me. Additional negative spiritual threats I suffered during a clergy abuse event opened me to more spiritual invasion and further obfuscated my ability to help my spirit progress. Years later, when I acknowledged that we are all responsible for and in control of our own spiritual aspect, I took charge of my spirit and remarkably improved my wellbeing.

Calm MarshA spirit is a sentient being that seeks ways to progress through the direction and participation of its form. If you want a good strong spirit with plenty of positive energy to propel it through its journey with you, you can start by regularly bringing in the Light*, the pure positive energy of the universe, without associating it with anything else to prevent its flow. When you feel the difference, you can go a step further and ask me for help to get rid of the stronger spiritual influences that impede your spirit until you can gain strength yourself.

There’s a wealth of knowledge about the positive spiritual realm that has been usurped and capitalized upon or simply forgotten over the course of history. It’s time to start finding out how a positively oriented spirit can help you to achieve a meaningful and joyful life, while allowing you to enjoy its peace and beauty within!

Loving Life

This is one of my favorite Starlike© paper art sculptures by Leo Jean. It represents self-love, as shown by the 3 stars on the heart: my spirit, my higher self and my body. The square is covered on 5 sides by stacked paper stars of various colors, the dimensions of my being into which I extend my self-love.We know that when we’re happy, we beam positive energy outward. All of us thrive on the commingling of positive energy when we love someone and have that love reciprocated. Although love can trigger that positive force, happiness isn’t dependent on love…it really begins within…then we can allow that inner harmony to enhance how we experience love.

For many of us who were neglected, bullied or abused early in life, we might perceive being in love it as an obligatory precedent to being happy. Although love might seem unattainable, if we first focus on becoming happy, we will be more capable of and comfortable with loving someone.

From my own perspective, once I learned to work with my spirit, I was surprised that I was able to experience a more profound happiness. Prior to that I was like a lovelorn puppy, and the notion of love was confusing, disappointing and practically meaningless. Ever since I made a connection with my spirit, I’ve been truly loving life!

"Glowing Hearts" by Leo Jean (aka Leo's Logo)Last Monday marked the 30-year anniversary of the day I met the man who introduced me to my spirit and how it works with the Light*. Leo Jean taught me that, in order to love someone else, I first had to love myself completely – and that brought me the happiness I had been craving. Although he recently left the physical plane in which we shared our love together, Leo’s exemplary joy continues to shine as a beacon into my life every day. Since our meeting I have generated my own happiness, not as a reflection of my physical world, but as a measure of my progress toward harmony with my spirit.

The phenomenal way in which my spirit and I use the Light brings me essential and lasting happiness. When life gets difficult, I draw my inspiration from within and, with the help of my higher self and my spirit, I generate happiness from all aspects of my repertoire.

thermal emotions

Yesterday evening as I walked through the snow-covered streets, a neighbor’s dog that I’ve only seen a couple of times saw me from across the road. All of a sudden the big frisky Lab took off across the street, jumped right into the 4-foot snow bank up to his shoulders and made a beeline for me. Upon emerging from the depths of the snow to the cleared sidewalk, the frisky Lab shook off the snow and greeted me, happily his wagging tail, and nudged me for a pat on his head. His owner walked across the street toward me, shaking his head, and quite seriously explained: “I’ve never seen him do that before!” As the big Lab bounded back across the street to his driveway, still excited and happy, I laughed and called out: “That’s okay. I think he likes me!”  (Dogs are very receptive to happy spirits, too!)

When we’re happy within, we can freely and timelessly share love and exuberance with everyone!

Withstand

Trimmed TreesWhen we consider that our spirits are an essential aspect of our being, we can engage their energy and timeless knowledge to enhance our lives. As we proceed through life, we can each stand with our spirit as we constantly adapt at all levels to the ever-changing circumstances of our life experience.

Throughout our lives there will always be challenges to confront yet, if we work to refuse and eliminate negativity as it presents itself, we can more easily glide into balance at all levels. Although some of us continue to struggle with the ongoing aftermath that earlier neglect, bullying or abuse has inflicted upon our wellbeing, we can effectively reduce the negative baggage we carry by refusing its influence properly.

As we cope and deal with emotional turmoil as it erupts from time to time, we can take steps toward limiting the impact of its residual negativity upon our wellbeing.

The learning and implementation of fundamental spiritual principles can help you become aware of and counteract higher-level negativity, so you can get on a positive footing in stride with the highest part of your being.

As we learn to withstand and deal with all the negativity that attempts to undermine our efforts to enjoy our lives, we can move through life with a much lighter step. Once you let go of the negative tendencies you’ve grown accustomed to accepting as part of your burden, you’ll realize that you had been allowing it to weigh you down, rather than releasing its friction.

Solo Tree

When you…

STAND UP FOR YOURSELF…you develop strength at all levels.

STAND FOR SOMETHING…you bring strength of purpose to enhance your wellbeing.

STAND OUT AS YOURSELF… you’ll recognize the unique individual you are.

STAND WITH YOUR SPIRIT… you’ll establish unsurpassed energy and harmony.

As we position ourselves within this dimension of spacetime, we learn to stand not before or behind others, but beside them in our quest for greater meaning and enduring happiness in our life experience.

‘Real Solutions’ for 2015

Galaxy Cluster Abell 520 (HST-CFHT-CXO Composite) hs-2012-10-c-large_webAs we embark on another amazing year, many of us are thinking about what changes we can make to improve our lives in the coming months. While some of us will dive boldly into new endeavors, others will take more cautious steps forward.  No matter how and when we promote change in our lives, there’s always a strategy that will work for each of us.

Every commitment has starting and end points, yet every point along the way is just as important. Maybe you’ve had great intentions in the past to kick habits, lose weight or implement other significant changes but, after an initial burst of energy, your determination dwindled and the effort left you feeling defeated.  Instead of being tempted by quick fixes that promise immediate results, why not just make real commitments at suitable times to renew and adapt as you progress throughout the year?

As you consider making the positive changes you desire, you might want to think about developing some positive higher-level skills to help you along the way. As you apply higher-level strategies to increase your enthusiasm and endurance, there will be less stress about keeping the promises you’ve made to yourself.

Supernova 1987a hs-2009-18-j-full_jpg

Although I don’t make New Year’s resolutions, when I do make commitments I always take them seriously. My commitments are of paramount importance, because I don’t only make them to myself, but also to the highest part of my being. When I make a commitment to make my life more positive, my spirit reciprocates by helping me to achieve the outcome with such energy and ease!

Especially at this time of the year, when we’re looking forward to positive change, we can all benefit from a positive spirit-body relationship together with all the insight and inspiration it generates. No one can make changes for you…it’s up to you to be ready to make the effort and to stay motivated throughout the process.

As you build on your past successes and anticipate a brighter future, you can start making positive changes whenever you have the inclination – like now!

Let’s all have the best year ever in 2015!

Discovering Answers

Iguazu FallsThis past week’s landing of the ESA’s Philae lander on a distant comet was a realtime reminder of how combined human ingenuity can result in phenomenal accomplishments. The Rosetta spacecraft’s success in delivering its lander to the comet is an important facet of our collective search for answers to the longstanding questions about the origins of life in our solar system.

Comet67P

Another news event that caught my attention was about Barbara Bowman who revealed in a Washington Post article that the comedian Bill Cosby sexually assaulted her when she was a 17-year-old aspiring actress. On CNN Ms. Bowman explained that she had attempted to ask for help concerning Mr. Cosby’s actions from several people, including lawyers, but her allegations had been immediately dismissed as ridiculous. It wasn’t until more people started coming forward with similar allegations about Mr. Cosby’s behavior that Ms. Bowman again ventured forward with her story. As she held back tears during her CNN interview, she stated that during the 30 years since the incidents: “I was terrified of him!”

Not unlike Ms. Bowman’s struggle, I’ve been through the wringer of guilt, pain, shame and blame that accompanies such abuse. During the first 20 of the almost 50 years since I was sexually assaulted by a Catholic priest, I experienced a kaleidoscope of emotions that ranged from shock, fear, disgust and despair. Especially disheartening was the reaction of disbelief when divulging that such a ‘distinguished’ person could commit such perverse acts.

Pinks Floral ProfieWhile Ms. Bowman confronts her unresolved issue from 30 years ago, I can look back today and be grateful to have found a solution 30 years ago that has irrefutably contributed to my wellbeing. Leo Jean, my dearest friend, husband and mentor who passed away a year ago, had shared immeasurably helpful knowledge about my spiritual wellbeing that has enabled me to help not only myself, but many others, to meet the challenges that we face at all levels of our lives.

The astounding feat of the first landing on a comet to collect data from its ancient surface to shed light on our physical origins has required many minds and many billions of dollars. On the contrary, many of the answers that we seek about ourselves are not found millions of miles out there in the universe but, rather, right within us, in the essence of our spirits.

While the scientific community is making progress on solving the age-old questions of why we’re here and if there’s anyone else out there, some of us have to resolve the difficulty of coping with abuse in our lives.  Our timelessly knowledgeable spirits can help guide us through such complexities of life – we just have to make the right connection to discover how.

Sharing Smiles

PathEntranceAs I was rolling along on my inline skates the other day, I experienced some noticeably heartwarming interaction with the passersby who were out in numbers to enjoy some exercise on that particularly beautiful day. Too often there seems to be a tendency for people to avoid each other in our increasingly busy and impersonal world when, instead, we could be invigorating each other with pleasant purpose.

On the paved nature trail where I rollerblade, many of the people who usually looked straight ahead as I passed by on earlier occasions actually looked up and smiled back at me as extended my smile and greetings to them. I could feel their exuberance as we met eyes and smiles. It gave me a sense of community on that trail, where we were all out getting our regular exercise together, but where most usually kept to themselves, as if absorbed by a fear of strangers. The benefits of smiling are enormous to our wellbeing and can be contagious!

Of course, when I first started out on my new rollerblades almost six weeks ago, I had presented myself as a bit of a clown, as I reeled and corrected my balance almost the entire time I headed up the slightly sloping trail. On the way down I would stabilize my center of gravity by holding my knees, like a child when learning to ski or skate. Some people would giggle as we passed each other and I shouted out how much fun I was having. No wonder some of my fellow walkers, joggers, cyclers and bladers were hesitant to greet me…or had I presented a menace (?!) with my smiles and hellos?

skating1.Monterey

It might have been a different scenario if I had accepted the first comment I received when I first put on my skates in my building’s parking garage. It had taken me a few months to decide to get on some rollerblades, after my girlfriend had suggested we start getting out there in the spring. I had bladed with my husband about 20 years ago in California, where we had decided to buy inline skates because we wanted to try out the then new product. He had been a lifelong ice skater, figure skater and hockey player, while I had remembered my zest to run home from school every day as a child to enjoy free skating at my village arena. Together we enjoyed the most exhilarating experience of skating with some fabulously friendly crowds of people along the ocean seawall in Monterey!

skating12.Monterey

It wasn’t long after I had discovered a long winding paved nature trail in Niagara Falls that I decided to put some skates on again. However, as I was making my first pass around the smoothly finished parking garage, the first comment I received from a disgruntled resident pulling into their space was: “You must really need some exercise.” On the next pass around I was met with their additional remark: “Maybe I should just call the paramedics.” As always when confronted with negativity of any sort, I immediately refused their comment, and then continued to complete the rest of my projected 10 turns around the garage.

InlineSkating9.2014wpNow, after several weeks of almost daily practice I’ve gradually progressed to where I’m now confident as I gain momentum and speed and can self-correct my balance with remarkable ease. So, if I had accepted that naysayer’s comment on my very first skate in many years, it might have resounded in my mind and caused me to feel awkward, fearful or even hurt myself. Fortunately, so I never allowed it to affect my progress to become more graceful (?!) on my skates.

My rollerblading experience can be compared to our progress in life, as we learn, adapt and acquire the momentum we need to succeed at all levels of our being. While we’re making it happen, let’s share some smiles anytime, anywhere, so we can all enjoy this spectacular ride together!

Your Spiritual Uniqueness

M33 - Traingulum Galaxy  from  hubblesite.org

No one has the same spiritual experience. Just as you are a unique individual, your spirit is different from every other spiritual being in the cosmos, and its experiences can influence your life through its inherent nature and the memories it carries forward.

Since your spirit has probably experienced existences that are incomprehensible to us in our myopic universal view, it may have brought some memories with it into this life that can influence the way your life unfolds. This cumulative information is stored at the spiritual level and can be recognized and acted upon within the spiritual world. This in turn can bring spiritual influence from unexpected sources that can affect you at the physical level.

Since the spiritual realm differs drastically from our tangible experience, there appears to be a misunderstanding of what spiritual knowledge is. Even within your own spiritual belief system you still have a responsibility to help your spirit progress in this lifetime. Otherwise, it moves on into its next existence without having achieved the progress it intended.

Your spirit is unique in all aspects of its being, yet it may have brought with it encumbrances that can interfere with or enhance your life. Not all fortunes come without a higher-level price and not all misfortunes come without a higher-level reason. The term karmic debt has been used to describe what comes from past spiritual experiences, while curses are encumbrances that have been delegated during this current life. As part of my work, I remove the large groups of spirits that comprise such interference, so that my clients can develop and nurture their spirit in a positive spiritual environment.

Your spirit might have had life experiences that surpass your current level of understanding, so you might have to deal with influences that defy all physical means of dealing with them. Spiritual negativity presents challenges that can often create baffling circumstances with one’s life, yet there is always a way through, when you work in a positive way with your spirit.

Your basic spiritual need is to ask for the pure white Light* to come in to remove the negativity that has accumulated within you both spiritually and physically. When you do this regularly on a long-term basis, you should definitely feel the positive effects throughout your entire being.

When you become spiritually aware, that is to say, when you realize that your spirit has sentience and can interact with you, you can start to allow your spirit’s uniqueness to filter through into your physical reality. The most precious possession in life is your spirit, because its uniqueness can make your life a stupendous journey that will propel it into the positive realm.

Even as our civilization melds technology into the fabric of our lives, our spirits will always remain the advanced beings they are, patiently waiting for us to incorporate positive universal knowledge into our collective humanity.
