The Oil Spill, Suffering & the Heart of the Matter

I recently posted some information on my Facebook group page about the oil spill, suffering and grief. It was my point that I am of little use if I am heavily grieving and if I lose my center. I had some very intense responses to this including being accused of lacking emotion and even being heartless! Being an sensitive person and a strong empath, this couldn't be further from the truth.

The great spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle speaks a lot about the NOW moment being the truth, the point of power and really all there is. He also talks about the "pain body" both individually and collectively, which has been highly activated by this recent environmental event.

I was suggesting that we remember to stay in our center and find the best ways to be useful in this crisis. Some people will be compelled to travel to the gulf to help in person, like the many kind souls did in the Katrina situation. Others will donate funds, raise public awareness or like myself, lead a daily prayer vigil. Moaning and wailing, playing the "blame game" and going on about BP and corporate greed will not get us out of this situation. In fact, these type of actions lower our energetic frequency and further activate the pain that we may carry. If we take that attitude and energy as far as it might go, it renders us useless to do anything to help whatsoever.

Of course I am deeply touched by this tragedy, we all are. I also know that in the midst of terrible events great miracles and healing can occur also. We can use this event to wake up to the destructive impact of oil dependency, spiritual bankruptcy and greed in America. We can stand together and be the "Rainbow Warriors" of the Native American prophecies and work side by side to heal and transform our beloved Mother Planet. We can get out of pain and into the NOW and be the hands, eyes and ears of Spirit on this planet. The choice is ours.

Wishing you peace and light in these magical and challenging times. Love and blessings to you all.

The Million Dollar Question.

Hello dear friends, I hope this post finds you well and happy. What do you think the number one question asked of psychics and intuitive readers is? The answer might surprise you: "WHEN will I meet my soul mate?" or "Who is she/he?" It surprises me that this question often surpasses other spiritual questions like, "Who am I?"? "What is the Divine Purpose of my life?" or "Why am I here?" This just goes to show how strong of a desire and drive it is for many people to connect with their mates.

I don't think this is a negative desire so to speak, but I have often seen the negativity that can arise in the frantic search to attain this goal. For example, some people are so obsessed with finding this person that it erodes their peace and happiness in the moment. They can also be so fixated on what this person will look or be like that they might be missing someone that could be wonderful for them right under their nose!

The Keepers (guides of the Akashic Records) have distinguished the difference between soul mates and what they call our True One or Mate. Soul mates are often(but not always) fellow travelers that we share karma with. The attraction to them is often very strong but the experience does not always promise to be pleasant! Soul mates show us our soul truly and shine a light on our fears, inadequacies and other dark places. They can be a blessing but sometimes this can feel like a curse! Exposing our vulnerabilities to ourselves and others is never easy, but tremendous growth can come of it. Many soul mate relationships are short-lived and are not life partnerships. They are like shooting stars, beautiful and intense, but not designed to last.

It has been said by many spiritual teachers that it is our job to love and appreciate ourselves first and foremost and this is wise advise. Looking for anyone else to "complete us" is a misguided quest. We are full and complete within ourselves having a friend, lover and confidante to share our bounty with is a most worthy goal. I have seen it so many times over the years with clients that when they stop obsessing and truly start living their lives and expressing the gifts and beauty of their own soul, their mate appears soon thereafter. Their joy and abundance is like a beacon that pulls their True One to them. It is also important for us to know that if we do not attract our mate to us that we have not failed in any way. There will be some people where remaining single is more in alignment with their karma and their soul's journey.

Wishing you all joy & peace in these magical times.
