My perspective on life, death, love, growth and change.

We are human beings, not human doings. We need to rest and recharge our physical, mental and spirital batteries. If not, we find ourselves feeling rundown, cranky and ill at ease. We need to learn to listen to our bodies. When I was a teenager, I could stay up all night. Now I find that I need a certain amount of rest and quiet time to be able to channel people's loved ones and to give of myself in a way that's productive and not detrimental to my wellbeing. I need to fill my own cup before I can give from the overflow.
In doing the work of a spiritual medium, intuitive, and mentor, I find that paying attention to my own body's messages is essential. I can't teach what I don't practice myself. In order to be effective and to help other people, I need to keep my physical, mental and spiritual energy balanced. This means eating in a reasonably healthy manner, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep. I also need down time, which includes socializing with friends as well as spending time alone.
Life is busy for everyone. We have to find time to take care of ourselves or we won't be able to be effective in our own lives, whether that includes having a healthy relationship, taking care of children, or being a good employee or business owner. What it comes down to is balance. Everyone is different. Find out what works for you and stay consistent. You will improve the quality of your life and maybe even influence someone else in a positive way.

Growing up, I was afraid of change. If someone asked me to try something new, I would automatically say no. I didn't want to be a beginner at anything. Through many years of life experience, I have learned that change is inevitable, so I might as well learn to embrace it. When we say no to new experiences, our lives become smaller. When we say yes, our lives expand. I want my life to continue to expand and grow, so I say yes to new challenges and opportunities. That doesn't mean that I don't have any fear. It just means that I decide to do it anyway. There is a great book about this by Dr. Susan Jeffers called Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway. I never know where these experiences will lead me, but I know that I will learn and grow spiritually.
What I used to fear is now exciting. I have learned to embrace change and look at each new challenge an opportunity to learn and to grow. After all, that's what we are here for, to learn and to grow and to help other people. Don't fear change, embrace it!

I believe that everything is either a gift or a test. If something positive happens to us, we feel happy and grateful. If something negative happens, we tend to question why, and stress ourselves out by worrying about the outcome. Over a period of many years, I have come to completely trust that we have guides, angels and loved ones in Spirit who are watching over us, providing us with the lessons that we need to learn in order to advance spiritually.
If something happens that we perceive as negative, we can always ook at it from a different perspective. Something may happen to us in order to give us the strength and the tools to be of service to other people. If I am running late and there is a traffic jam, I know that I am either being spared from an unfortunate event or that I need to learn to be more patient and stay in the present moment. There may be something I need to hear on the radio that I would have missed had I left the house on time.
I believe that we are all here to learn and to grow spiritually. Sometimes the greatest lessons are learned by overcoming a so-called problem, getting to the other side of it, and realizing that it was for our highest good. The best learning comes from personal experience, and from personal experience comes growth and the ability to be of service to other people.
