Pain of Regret Healing.png

HEALING THE PAIN OF REGRET ~  FROM A MEDIUM’S PERSPECTIVE

Painful photo? YES as the pain of regret IS very painful. Everything I have learned from BEING a parent and everything I have learned from the messages of apology that come through from loved one’s in eternal life to their children still living has taught me: there is no such thing as a perfect parent. And there is no such thing as a perfect human being. At least I have never met such a unique creature. ( In fact those parading around as perfect spiritual guru’s frighten me the most.)

SOOOOOOOO, should we stop TRYING because we can’t be perfect? If you say “yes” to that –  it is the same as being on a healthy diet, having something not so healthy to eat and then deciding all is lost so you might as well food binge for the next month.

FACE THE PAIN OF REGRET: Think about that ONE DAY that changed your whole life, at least it seemed like it did. You made a mistake. If only you could take that day back. The movie of that day plays over and over in your mind, year after year. This was a day you made a mistake as a parent.  There may have been other mistakes on other days, but this one day looms large on the horizon of your visions of the mistakes you made.

Do those mistakes matter now? Of course they matter now, but if you have faced your mistakes, have become a more balanced person, apologized for your mistakes, then it is high time that you FORGIVE YOURSELF even if you are not forgiven by others.

FORGIVE YOURSELF AND PERHAPS YOU WILL BEGIN TO FORGIVE YOUR OWN PARENTS

Were your parents perfect? Most likely not. Did they make mistakes that you have never forgiven them for in your heart. (It goes without saying that if you have been brutally abused you may not be able to forgive.)  But for the better part of us who had parents that ranged from close to perfect to emotionally abusive due to untreated mental illness or personality disorders: we have parents who loved us but who make mistakes that changed our lives in the same way that our mistakes changed the lives of our children.  It is amazing how we begin to understand and forgive the mistakes of our parents as we begin to understand our own mistakes AS parents.

As a medium I can tell many stories about the loved ones who come through in readings with very specific apologies to their living children. And as these loved ones in spirit are able to apologize it appears to me that they are able to move on in the never ending spiritual growth in Eternal Life.

YOU reading this, are still living and so you have the opportunity to apologize NOW.  You have the chance to forgive yourself NOW.

FORGIVE YOURSELF AND PERHAPS YOU WILL BEGIN TO FORGIVE YOUR CHILDREN

If you have children who have reached adulthood, have they been perfect children? Have they always treated you and other members of the family well? Most likely they have not as they are human beings like the rest of us and they are not perfect. As you forgive yourself for not being perfect, you may begin to forgive not only your parents, but your children.

And if your grown children are parents, most likely they will not become perfect parents as they are human beings and there are no perfect human beings.

I DISAGREE WITH MANY OF MY COLLEAGUES WHO BELIEVE EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON

There are colleagues in my field who believe that every thing we do, we do for the reason of learning, and everything that happens is meant to happen. I am not able to go along with that idea, and from my perspective there is absolutely no way to prove that concept. When someone is brutally abused I cannot accept that this was “meant to be.”

What I do accept is that we do not have control over all that happens in life. What we have more control over is how we respond to what happens.  And if we have behaved badly it was not written someplace in eternity that we were meant to behave badly. We must face our actions, cope with our regret, change our behaviors, and eventually forgive ourselves.  And if others have hurt us, depending on the severity of the circumstances, we need to find our way to forgiveness as much as we possibly can.

Let us focus on forgiving ourselves, and forgiving others. And while facing the regret, also focus on facing the reality that no one is perfect: I am not perfect, you are not perfect, they are not perfect. No one is perfect. Accepting our imperfect reality brings HEALING.

DEAR READERS: This post cannot possibly contain all of the many stories about different kinds of mistakes: mistakes we have made ourselves and the many ways we have suffered from the mistakes made by others.  Not even a whole book could include all of the mistakes human beings make. The topic of mistakes can be overwhelming, but we can make a start by accepting who we are as human beings and work to become better people making less mistakes.

 

 

 

 

WASTED ENERGY TRYING TO FIT IN July 27, 2016

Looking in Our Own Eyes

LOOK IN THE MIRROR. Look into your own eyes. Realize that each time you try to FIT IN to a role, situation or relationship that you really do not want, you are giving up part of yourself. And as you give up part of yourself, that uses up a lot of vital energy within you.WHAT would you do with that energy that is now being wasted as you try to fit in? How would you “spend” that energy if you could free that wasted energy up from having to do the horrible job of trying to make you be someone else?

Of course there ARE some situations and relationships that you are not going to leave for good reason. But if you are like me and many of those I consult with, there IS room for improvement in your personal journey: the journey to become more of who you really are. And there ARE many roles, situations and relationships that you CAN change.

I think of myself as being very different. And perhaps this is a fantasy as maybe most people think they are different. Perhaps we are all the same in that we all think we are different. No matter what the answer to this riddle is: we can all become more of who we really are!

I have come a long way in being who I am. When I was younger never would I have imagined that as an older person I would be a psychic medium out there in the world: a working medium and a published author. I know many people who are psychic and mediumistic who are afraid to admit their spiritual gifts even to themselves. I remember the years when I was deciding if I was willing to write books, be on television and radio and be know publicly or remain a kind of closeted medium that very few people would find out about.  It was a bit scary to come out as a psychic medium. Not everyone was going to approve of me, some people would say I was a freak or wacko.

LET US ASK OURSELVES LIFE CHANGING QUESTIONS: What would my life look like if I was being more of who I really am? Would I still be working in the same kind of job. would I be working at all, who would I be spending time with, what would my schedule look like, what relationships would I let go of and what kinds of relationships would I be looking for? WHAT WOULD CHANGE? There are as many answers to these questions as there are people who are willing to look themselves in the eyes and ask the questions.

LIFE IS SHORT SO DO NOT WAIT: I kinda understood that life is short when I was younger, but with years of experience as a psychic medium communicating with the spirits of those who have passed on, I really know that life is short.  And with years of comforting clients who are mourning the passing of a loved one: I know now that life is short.  Of course I have also been in deep grief over the passing of my own loved ones, and each time another of my family or friends makes a transition into eternal life, I learn once again that life is short. 

Don’t misunderstand this message. It is not a message that begs you to turn your whole life upside down in a day. It is a message that says “LOOK INTO YOUR OWN EYES AND SEE WHO YOU ARE. BECOME MORE OF WHO YOU ARE IN YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE AS LIFE IS SHORT.”

 

The Vicious Circle of Impatience June 9, 2010

Do you want to live your life running around the vicious circle of impatience? You know that old saying “Rome was not built in a day.”  At times our lack of patience will cause us to give up something important in our lives because we want what we want RIGHT NOW!   We want to accomplish something but are not willing to go through the long process involved in reaching our goals.  What to do?

When you are in a rush to reach a goal, remember that once you reach that goal, there will most likely be another goal that you will want to reach.  You will become impatient about the next goal and so on and so on.   Do you want to live your life running around the vicious circle of impatience?

Many of us ruin the quality of our lives by fretting all the time about how well we are doing, or how much we have done.  We could be so much happier if we set goals, YES great goals: but at the same time created realistic plans for reaching our goals.  What ever happened to spending an afternoon by the river, without an iphone in hand?  Whatever happened to having a cup of tea on the porch and relaxing?  Many of us do not remember those days or perhaps have never experienced those days.

Let us step our of the vicious circle of impatience and into the vibrations of joy that we can be blessed with each day, if we work hard and enjoy our work. Let us develop deeper energies of patience within and feel the bliss that is part of each one of us, if we will only realize how happy we can be.

I am having a wonderful experience working with a book that I channeled from the world of spirit. It is equally satisfying to work with students as they read this book.  Following is an excerpt:

“I believe in you

You know what you need

While others can be helpful and you need their guidance, it is your body, mind and spirit that ultimately know what you need.

Trust yourself

Cultivate a deep friendship with your inner wisdom

Know that you have a Higher Self that is part of All Divine Wisdom”

Tough Love in Current World Crisis October 20, 2009

I do not believe the world is going to end anytime soon, but I do think we have some world issues that need our full attention.  This is a time when we need to look at our personal energy as if it were money in the bank and ask ourselves “what is the best use of my energy?”

Many of us who see ourselves as people who walk the spiritual path have soft hearts for those with problems, and we do more than our fair share as we try to help our friends through difficulties.  Many of us have also come to the point where we realize that it is a waste of energy to help some people because they are not willing to do their part: they are not willing to make choices to better their lives.

Especially during this time on the earth, it is more important than ever to evaluate how we spend our valuable energy.  With world communications as they are, we are now AWARE of how many starving people there are in the world. We are now AWARE of the problems in our ecological system.   So I ask myself and I ask you to ask yourself: “What is a better use of my energy: to try to keep helping people who are not willing to help themselves, or to spend my time on social projects that help communities who are truly in need?”   “What is a better use of my time: to help a friend who never learns or to help a child with his homework?”  “What is a better use of my time: to argue with people who are not willing to face the ways they are abusing themselves, or to work a few extra hours each week and donate the money to a community that has next to nothing?”   You and I only have so much personal energy.  How are we going to spend this energy?

There comes a point where we cannot help people who are not willing to help themselves. Of course there are exceptions as there are people who are absolutely not capable of helping themselves. But in this instance we are discussing those who CAN help themselves but do not choose to do so.

It becomes a waste of our valuable life energy to continue to spend energy on those who do not receive any benefit from continual attempts to be helpful.

I ask myself again “How am I going to spend my personal energy?” I ask you :How are you going to spend yours?”

Look as far as you can to find the larger view

When you feel trapped and caught in a corner

Find the larger view

When your perspective is as narrow as a solid line

Find the larger view

Gaze far beyond your own nose and find a whole world, a whole universe of knowledge

When I lived in California, I knew a man named John who lived out of his van. He sold old books and records and traveled from town to town. I was working as a musician then, and he knew all the musicians in the towns he visited. I would walk with him sometimes and he would look at a public park and say “welcome to my park.” He knew the world belonged to him even if he did not own much of anything. What a fortunate and wealthy man.

Sometimes it is easy for us to feel sorry for ourselves, but if we take a look at our lives there are many things to be grateful for.  If we have places to live and food on the table, we have alot that many people in our world do not have.  And yet, so many of us become despondent and greedy, always wanting more, more, more.  When this happens, we waste the precious time we have on this earth.

Moment of Prayer October 13, 2009

Our lives are full of work, family, cell phones to answer, and emails to respond to.  As we walk the spiritual path it IS possible to be as busy as we are and at the same time realize the spark of Divinity that is within each one of us.  Simply by creating a ~Moment of Prayer~ each hour though out the day, we can remain in touch with the Divine.

Take a moment each hour to focus your full attention on the Divine.  No matter where you are or what you are doing, offer a prayer of gratitude. Your life will be enriched and you will find yourself making better choices for yourself and your world.

As we take a moment away from the busy activity we are engaged in and focus on the Divine, we will receive the Light that we need.  We will feel healthier, better able to meet the challenges of human life, and more able to help others.

Take a day and focus on a ~Moment of Prayer~ each hour.  At the end of the day ask yourself ” How do I feel? Have a had a better day? Have I moved closer to wanting to improve our world?”

Bump in the Road? October 12, 2009

When you hit a bump in the road and go flying, remember that once you land safely on the other side of that bump, the road stretches far in front of you.  You may not hit another bump for miles and miles.  Don’t get off the road, because of an occasional bump.

On the spiritual path, we also hit many so called “bumps.”  When we hit a bump,  we become scattered and often feel like we are falling apart . It is important to know that often when one has survived a slight hiccup or bump, great progress is to be made.  As you fall apart, you may be letting go of old habits and behaviors that you do not need any longer.  Pray for Divine Guidance and you will find your way back to the spiritual path and keep moving forward.

When you feel trapped in a corner and no solution for escape appears

Create the Possible

When your mind gives you ten reasons why there are no good solutions to your problems

Create the Possible

When your logic traps you into depression because there is no way out

Create the Possible

Rise above your mind and listen to your heart

Allow your spark of Divinity to guide you
