I’m Afraid To Die

I’m Afraid To Die

It’s so interesting, young kids sometimes are spiritually drawn to me when I do readings. At a recent fair a 10 year old boy came to me.  His mother paid for his reading.  I asked him, “So, how can I help you?”  He confided in me, “I’m afraid to die.”  At first, I was taken aback by what he said.  I asked, “What do you mean?”  “You know, I just don’t want to die”, he replied.  Upon checking in with spirit I got the sense that he had died young in his prior life.  In fact, he was about the same age as now.  Thus his current age was the trigger for his unresolved death causing his fear. I explained to him what I sensed and told him that he wasn’t going to die, at least not any time soon, upon which he replied again, “I don’t want to die.” I saw that my explanation just wasn’t enough to help him with his fear.  As such I asked him, “How would you like me to help you heal it right now?”  He replied, “Yes.” I took both his hands into mine, closed my eyes and engaged in a process of healing with him in spirit.  I saw the time of his death in his prior life.  A car ran into him as he was riding his bicycle.  As I called in the proper healing energy, I suddenly felt his quivering stop.  I now felt his calmness. I opened my eyes and asked him, “Are you feeling better?”  “Yes”, he replied.  I once again closed my eyes and completed the...
What Most Supports Life In This Moment?

What Most Supports Life In This Moment?

The Boat   This is my new painting called “The Boat”.  It is inspired by my own personal spiritual journey, as learned through the workings with my mentor Erika Niemann. As we move into living life from the inside, rather than from the outside looking in, controlling every aspect of it becomes nearly impossible, as it is much like swimming in a river.  Overwhelming and impossible to control.   Life is rich, colorful and multifaceted with a lots of currents that can pull us into different directions.  However, if we learn to work with life, trust and allow life to support and carry us, we may find an unprecedented peace, impossible to experience by living life from the outside looking in, fending for ourselves. The best way to be in a symbiotic relationship with life and allow life to support us is by asking ourselves: “What most supports life in this moment?”   The question puts us into the boat.   The key to being supported by life is being in the boat.   Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)MoreClick to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Like this:Like...

What is Abundance, Really? Part II

In Part I of my blog I concluded that abundance has nothing to do with money, as I have observed that even in the presents of a lot of money we can still experience fear of not having enough. So, what exactly is abundance?  Where does it come from?  And how do we acquire it? Consider for a moment that abundance is a sense of knowing with certainty that there is enough, unaccompanied by any fear or worry.  Much like how we feel about the air we breathe.  Do we worry every time we take a breath whether there will be enough air?  No.  We just breathe.  And every time we draw a breath, indeed there is enough.  Could we have the same sense of knowing about love, friends, water, food, clothing, shelter, beauty, resources, success, fun and even money? Consider the possibility that abundance is available to us as part of our natural flow of life, much like the air we breathe.  Now consider for a moment that our spirit and the divine energy we are a part of is the source of life that nourishes us and is our timeless and limitless resource we will never run out of!  When we are connected to this life force we have access to all the abundance that already exists.  Thus our sense of knowing that there is enough comes from our connection to our life source, our spirit. Why then do some of us not experience this sense of knowing, but rather to the contrary?  Why do some of us experience fear of not having enough or fear of...

What is Abundance, really? Part I

    By its own virtue abundance seems to suggest that there is enough.  I always thought having abundance meant having enough money.  But just how much money is enough?  Think about it.  How much money would you need in order to feel that you have enough?  What’s the magic number?  How much is enough? I have met people who make six figure incomes and still don’t feel they have enough.  What about corporate America and its millions in earnings and all their greed?  Incidentally, greed comes from an attitude of scarcity.  Why then all the greed in such a sea of abundance? Some time ago I met a life coach who was also a big believer of “The Secret”, which is all about the “Law of Attraction”.  She told me I needed to change my attitude and the way I spoke.  How do you ever expect to have abundance when talking about not having enough?  Your attitude projects scarcity.  She had a point.  In the process of building my business I tended to voice my frustrations.  We manifest what we think about, she continued, and invited me to listen to some tapes intending to help me acquire an attitude of abundance.  Ok, it made sense.  Maybe I had something to learn here, I thought, and accepted her invitation. As I listened to the first tape, a male voice started talking about an organization that, upon my joining, would teach me all the secrets of building wealth.  I couldn’t wait!  He stressed the importance of listening to those who have walked before me.  At the same time he elaborated about...

My Thoughts on Independence Day

I’ve been contemplating our recent holiday, 4th of July Independence Day and the history behind it.  Undoubtedly it has been a big holiday for the United States.  So, what exactly did we become independent from?   Apparently the 13 colonies back in 1776 were not pleased with the new system which required them to pay taxes on imports of paper, paint, lead, glass and tea.  Ah yes, the popular Boston Tea Party!  From what I can gather our independence was all about freedom from taxation, taxation without representation and freedom from governmental control.  As such in 1776 the 13 colonies declared their independence from the British government, which ultimately lead to the establishment of the United States. In my contemplation I asked myself just how much of that freedom do we still own today while celebrating our independence?  When looking at what we are being taxed on today, the more appropriate question is “what are we not being taxed on today?”  I wonder just how many people feel properly represented by their government these days?  Just recently I was taken aback noticing how many taxes I was paying on a basic commodity such as food.  I recall a time when that wasn’t the case.  I thought to myself, I don’t remember voting for that.  What happened?   Obviously somebody had thought it was a good idea.  What’s happening to our freedom amidst all the laws, regulations and taxation we keep putting into effect?  Consider the possibility that every time we vote for a new law we give up just a little bit more of our freedom.  It doesn’t matter...
