Especially for light workers, healers and counselors… Are you too compassionate?
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 healing process. Then I opened my eyes and asked him, “So, how is your fear of dying? Still afraid?” He replied, “No. I never was afraid.” I was once again taken aback. “Well, what about your issue of not wanting to die?”, I asked. He replied, “I don’t have an issue. Never was an issue.” I suddenly realized, his unresolved death was healed. Not only was he not afraid anymore, he couldn’t even remember that he once was. I smiled and wished him well.
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.
Wishing you a marvelous holiday weekend!
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 running out? Why do some of us experience lack in the midst of such abundance?
We all have experienced fear at some point or another. Interestingly, it seems that in the moment of experiencing fear we also feel most disconnected from spirit, the very essence of life that nourishes and creates. And when we act from fear we strangle the natural flow of life thus blocking our access to the abundance that already is.
Fear seems an effective survival mechanism in emergencies warning us of anything life threatening. However, it doesn’t seem to serve us as well in the long run. I’m talking about the fear we experience in the face of no immediate threat. Where does it come from and why do we feel it?
Throughout my years of spiritual healing I have come to learn that fear comes from our unresolved past and exists in the presents of pain. If we have previously been bitten by a dog, we now may fear dogs. If we have previously experienced starvation, we may now be experiencing fear of not having enough to eat. If we have previously experienced poverty, we may now be experiencing fear of not having enough resources to survive. You get the picture. While you are thinking about your own life experiences, consider the possibility that you may have lived more than once.
It is in the wake of our unresolved experiences we view the world through the glasses of fear and not only do we see the world as such, but we create the world as such. Consider the possibility that we manifest our reality and we do so energetically. Thus when we carry in our energy field unresolved experiences, we also create with them. In other words, if we carry a fear of not having enough, our reality will reflect it by “not having enough”. Our reality always reflects our spiritual energy because we create with it.
In conclusion, limitless abundance is available to us as part of our spiritual energy and natural flow of life. However, unhealed pain distorts our reality and disconnects us from our natural way of being.
In “Part I” of my blog I ask the question “just how much money is enough?” In light of our new perspective, I would like to answer that question by saying that no amount of money will ever be enough! Not if we are attempting to suffocate our fears and worries with money! How do I know this? Well, lets just say I’ve attempted this for years! Without much success, I might add.
We will never fix what’s inside of us with an external remedy. No amount of money will substitute the power of our spiritual energy. However, once we remedy what’s inside of us, we have a chance at seeing it reflected in our reality by actually experiencing having enough.
So, how then do we eliminate fear and worry, if all the money in the world can’t? How do we get back to our natural state of being where we are properly connected to our life source?
In my personal experience, spiritual healing will do just that. Fear exists in the presents of pain. I’m talking about the pain we have experienced but haven’t fully digested. In the process of healing, as we integrate our painful experiences and transform our pain into wisdom, fear dissipates. In the absence of fear and worry we can properly connect with our inner self, our essence, our life source and all the abundance that already exists with our natural state of being.
My wish for you then is that in your search for abundance you may find yourself and discover that you are the abundance you seek!
May you experience real abundance!
