Halloween – Is It A Trick Or A Treat?

Happy Halloween Black Cat

IT’S MY FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR AGAIN~ HALLOWEEN

This is a fun and also at times a very controversial holiday as it is  often debated by some religions that  a lot of mischief and mayhem occur on this day,  so we question:

“Is Halloween A Trick Or  A Treat”?

HappyHalloweenTrickorTreatCandyPump

FOR ME IT WAS AND WILL ALWAYS BE A TREAT!

Growing up on Manhasset Isle in Port Washington, Long Island, New York,   Halloween was a magical time for me as neighbors, family and friends opened their doors not only to give candy, but to make a connection with everyone in good spirits.

(No pun intended)

A NIGHT OF INFAMY…

There was the infamous “Mischief Night” on Halloween Eve, the night before…  Manhasset Isle was famous for this and was in the news…

Ahhh… yes, I can still smell the aroma of freshly thrown eggs on cars and houses, along with the toilet paper being strewn in trees and also houses with the occasional spritz of  a fire extinguisher filled with soapy water on my back , especially in the brisk autumn weather!

Sometimes you have to taste the bitter with the sweet…

Life goes on…

There hasn’t been any incidents like this in over 2 decades, I believe the kids of this generation have found better things to occupy their restlessness, like the internet!

I remember filling at least two pillow cases with candy and marveling at all of the magical decorations that were in the surrounding neighborhoods.

Halloween is the SECOND most decorated holiday after Christmas.

I usually have my house lit up like a Jack-O’-Lantern for Halloween, here’s a peek:

Halloweenhouse

I always wanted to be a window dresser for some big department store, every Halloween is my chance!

Here’s a “frightful”  Witches Brew…

The videos below show some frightfully computerized special effects on these haunted houses:

This holiday to me was a yearly quest not only for candy, but to connect with other people and have fun, let go of any shyness or inhibitions that my normal daily life involved .

Trick -Or-Treating helped me get over my shyness and allowed me to express myself freely more as an artist.

SAFETY FIRST ALWAYS!

With some common sense and safety,  fond memories of

Trick -or-Treating will prevail.

THE BUDDY SYSTEM ALWAYS WORKS…

NEVER  Trick-Or-Treat alone, only go with parents, friends and relatives…

As always, stay in neighborhoods you know and feel safe in.

Carry a flashlight for nightime Trick-Or-Treating…

Inspect treats before eating them and NEVER eat anything that’s unsealed.


SCARY MEMORIES OF HALLOWEENS PAST…

When I was  kid in the 70’s there was a big scare about people putting things like drugs or razor blades  into the candy and other treats, talk about a real – life SCARY situation…


HAPPY MEMORIES FROM HALLOWEENS PAST…

My favorite Halloween memories are of my  mother Phyllis helping us to make  costumes that would range from the Koogle Peanut Butter monster to a California Grape Guy and we’d all get involved and have some quality family time.

My mother Phyllis made this Ariel costume (from Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”) for my neice Barbara…

She looks so “Bootiful”

Ariel Babs

We’d watch some scary and funny movies such as “Young Frankenstein”, along with “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and listen to Halloween songs like “Monster Mash” as well as making Halloween treats like Halloween shakes and cookies… And of course making our costumes!

My Niece Barbara makes Halloween Cookie Houses… One of the new classics… Here’s last year’s Halloween Cookie House:

WINNIE THE WITCHWinniewitch1

AT  DAVID L. WICKS FARM IN SAINT JAMES,

LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK

Winnie The Witch stands at over 20 feet tall and can be seen all year ’round at David L. Wicks farm in this quaint antique town and has been around since the 1950’s…

EVERY OCTOBER, THIS FARM TURNS INTO A “DISNEYLAND” FOR HALLOWEEN…

Hayrides, horse rides, a haunted maze and a petting zoo make for a fun Halloween Extravaganza!  There’s also homemade pies, candy apples as well as popcorn, mmm… I could just smell it now…  And of course, everyone wants to take a photo next to Winnie The Witch!

Winniewitch2

These memories will stay with me for a lifetime…


Halloween goes way back to Celtic times as the Celts would honor nature and harvest time.  Samhain was the original name, then it turned into All Hallow’s Eve and then finally Halloween to shorten the name.

Here’s a link to an excellent blog about the history of Halloween from The History Channel…

http://www.history.com/content/halloween

I highly suggest watching The History Channel’s “The Haunted History Of  Halloween” as you’ll be taken on a journey from the very beginning of this holiday from Celtic Times to the present, it’s chock full of  information that really explains the evolution of this fun and at times very controversial  holiday.

Other Halloween favorites I watch are :

New York has a HUGE yearly  Halloween  Parade that is second to none!  It’s a real treat to see this parade in person and there’s always a need for volunteers, artistic and otherwise to man the gigantic puppets…

Below is this extravagant event which takes place in

Greenwich Village, New York City, sneak a peek to see !

Who can forget Martha Stewart’s  Halloween How -To Specials for those of us who love to make our own spooky costumes and decorations?

Great Halloween music is a complement to any party or just for atmosphere.  Below are some of my favorite videos to create a festive mood:



As for myself,  I still get into costume and enjoy the parties and of course handing out candy to the smiling costumed faces of the children and sometimes adults and remember way back when I was a trick-or-treater…

For The Ladies : The Pain Body – What It Is And How To Calm It Down…

astral-body1

The Pain Body is a part of us that is ethereal in nature and is triggered by how we respond to the people and events in our lives.

According to Eckhard Tolle in his book ” The Power Of Now”, women are affected by The Pain Body especially a week or two before their menstrual cycle.

powerofnow

I  for myself, have experienced this phenomenon especially a week or two before my cycle.

We all have Pain Bodies, mine would surface and make me in extreme physical pain, (my abdomen and lower back)  especially sensitive to people and situations, more irritated and scenarios would play out in my head about

Things I “thought projected” out about situations that didn’t even exist…

The best way to calm it down is to treat it the same as the Ego, identify and acknowledge it’s presence in your mind or out loud (if you’re alone and more comfortable!) and you’ll notice a big difference in the way you physically and mentally feel…)

You’ll get your power (and sanity) back…

In Gary Schineller’s Chelson Award-Winning book

“How To Have A Nice Day”

Gary talks about not taking ownership of  a problem or illness, great advice, i’d say…

how-to-have-a-nice-day

Here’s my interview with Gary Schineller about his book and techniques on “How To Have A Nice Day”…

This is part One of a three part interview…

This is part Two of a three part interview…

This is part Three of a three part interview…


So remember, when you’re feeling especially cranky and irritated, meditate on this and try to focus on where the source of this is coming from.

Are you in physical/emotional pain for no apparent reason?

Do negative people and/or situations play out in your head like a broken record player or “memory” tape player

Go to a quiet place and meditate on this, find the source, acknowledge it and most of all:

CHANGE YOUR THOUGHTS TO HAPPY ONES!

How To Make Peace With Our Egos And Progress Spiritually Into Our True Selves: Our Force…

What is an EGO?

An ego is that part or fragment of our soul that constantly negates and questions things and is based on fear.

With a little time and patience, we can make peace with this part of ourselves and make spiritual progress.

ego41

Sure, it is alright to question and debate things that happen to us and others in this world, however, sometimes the ego really gives you a struggle when you’re really trying to move ahead spiritually as in my case when I was learning reiki.

The whole time I was in class, I would hear constant comments like “Oh, you really believe in this garbage, are you crazy?”

I could also feel like someone or something very dense was standing behind me the whole time, shadowing me and every positive thought that i had…

It was getting to the point that I was getting extremely annoyed and was feeling the internal and external struggles and fears of learning something so spiritually progressive due to my ego, which to me at that time was the size of Mount Rushmore.

“The ego is like a rebellious teenager”…

My friend and mentor Aveana Deerheart said this to me as I was trying to figure out why it was so hard for me when I was learning reiki to listen and be still and also when we went to a metaphysical church, I got a psychic reading and got constant interference and couldn’t listen there, either.

The ego doesn’t like when we grow spiritually, as we get closer to the “source”, God/dess and further away from it and the illusions of this material world…

ego

On a funny note, the woman that was giving me messages was a very small framed woman and wore a long, robe-like sweater and walked with a cane.  She looked a little bit like Yoda…

yoda

All of a sudden, I hear “HMMMM, STRONG THE FORCE IS WITH HER…” like Yoda from the Star Wars movies. 

yoda-dancin

Folks, I gotta tell you, it took all of the strength I could not to bust out laughing after this. Yes, the ego can have a sense of humor too,  to deflect you from learning what you need to learn spiritually as it takes power away from it and brings you closer to your “source” or God/dess…

Yoda is a symbol to me, of fearlessness and truth which is a total opposite of the ego… In ” Star Wars, Episode One – The Phantom Menace” where he tells a young Anakin Skywalker that he has much fear in him and i’ll quote him:

Fear leads to greed

Greed leads to hate

Hate leads to anger

Anger leads to suffering…

Pretty much entails a lot of what our egos are made up of…

“You have to acknowledge your ego, don’t ignore it”

By acknowledging your ego say in your mind or out loud “yes, I know you’re here”, you are letting that part of yourself to be recognized and that’s the first step to calming it down.

The ego hates to be ignored…

The ego works on fear and is so afraid of us letting go of it as it’s been a part of us all of our lives.

When we incarnate here, the ego attaches itself to us and makes us know we’re in the real world, the material world and it’s job is to make challenges for us by illustrating the illusions of this world.

Our job is to unlearn every fearful thing that the ego has shown to us…

Aveana explained that when we fight our ego, it fights back and causes disharmony. This is so true. Before my second reiki class was to begin, I felt a big shove on the back of my chair and doors were slamming in my house, I got up, cursing and yelling at this “entity” which was really my ego, and sure enough it was fighting me back.

Gail Quigg, another friend and mentor had told me when I called her up scared at what had just took place, to just acknowlege that it’s there and start thinking of pleasant things…

I did that and sure enough it worked. The doors stopped slamming and I felt more at ease.

The moral of this story is that you must acknowledge your ego, let it know you know it’s there and that everything will be alright.

Before you know it, you’ll have tamed your ego and also achieve success with your spiritual growth…

Spiritually Inspired Thought:Creating Quicker Than A Ray Of Light:Where Does It Come From?

Dr.Wayne Dyer talks about inspired thought and where it comes from in his book ” Inspiration – Your Ultimate Calling” and talks about acting on inspired thought quickly…

 

 

soul-searching

Spiritually inspired thought is incredibly fast, almost like a download onto a computer,  from  our “Higher Self” along with our Spirit Guides directly to our dna.  I guess you can say “Instant downloading of  thoughts and ideas into our DNA”.

Meditation, calming the mind to receive these messages is essential for clear, concise information to flow through us.

Raising your vibratory rate is also essential to channel higher beings of light such as your spirit guides and angels.

This can be done by positive thinking, eating higher vibrational foods such as Raw Foods and chakra clearing.

 

Below is “Ray Of Light” by Madonna where she sings:

And I feel like I just got home

Quicker than a ray of light i’m flying…

If you have an artist or writer’s block,  just focus on meditating for awhile as it clears out the debris in your mind so you can put the focus on whatever project you’re looking to start or finish.

In the picture below, visionary artist Alex Grey shows here how he gets his inspiration from his spirit guides and the universe.  Notice the swirling of  the vortex above and inside the artist’s body as he paints. That’s the instant downloading I was talking about.

divine-art

http://www.alexgrey.com/

If you become frustrated with a project, just walk away from it and meditate, calm your mind and take a break from it or start another one and just come back to it later. You’d be surprised how much information will be instantly downloaded to you when your mind is at rest and not stressing the project and you will be creating quicker than a ray of light…

We Are Spirits Living In A Material World: The Grand Illusion

 WE ARE SPIRITS HAVING A “HUMAN EXPERIENCE” IN THIS “SCHOOL OF LIFE”, WHERE THE ILLUSION OF MATERIALISM IS ALL AROUND US… WE NEED TO GET BACK TO OUR DIVINE SELVES THROUGH SPIRITUALITY, TO SEEING THE BIGGER PICTURE THAT ALL THAT GLITTERS IS NOT GOLD BUT THE NEED TO FULFILL OUR SOUL’S PURPOSE HERE IS TRUE WEALTH…

material-world

SURE, WHO DOESN’T LIKE MATERIAL “STUFF”, I DO, BUT I DON’T LET IT RULE ME OR MAKE ME JUDGE ANYONE WHO ISN’T MATERIALLY ABUNDANT.

SPIRITUAL ABUNDANCE MAKES YOU HAPPY IN ALL AREAS OF LIFE, NOT JUST THE MATERIAL SIDE…

heart-and-soul

MANY TIMES WE READ THE PAPERS OR SEE ON THE TELEVISION NEWS OF SOME AFFLUENT ROCK STAR OR MOVIE/TV STAR DYING FROM A DRUG OVERDOSE. 

 I HAVE TO ASK, DID THE MATERIAL THINGS THEY HAVE  SAVE THEM FROM THEIR UNHAPPINESS???

STARVATION OF THE SOUL – THE NEED FOR SOUL SEARCHING – FINDING OUR “CENTER”

IF WE’RE NOT HAPPY WITH OURSELVES FIRST AND FOREMOST, WE’RE GOING TO LOOK FOR IT IN SOMEONE ELSE, DRUGS ,  ALCOHOL  AND MATERIAL THINGS, WHEN WHAT WE REALLY NEED TO DO IS LOOK WITHIN OURSELVES AND FIND WHAT WE NEED TO MAKE US HAPPY…

I KNOW, EASIER SAID THAN DONE.  I USED TO BASE MY HAPPINESS ON WHAT I’VE ACQUIRED IN LIFE, THE PROOF THAT I WORKED HARD AND SUCCEEDED. DID THAT MAKE ME HAPPY?  NO, IT DID NOT!  I WOULD CONSTANTLY BUY THINGS TO PROVE MY SELF WORTH AND I WAS NEVER REALLY TRULY HAPPY.  I’VE COME TO FIND IT ONLY PROVED HOW SOUL-DEPRIVED I WAS.

I WAS ALWAYS A HAPPY PERSON, HOWEVER THE NEED TO “PROVE MYSELF” AND BE A “PEOPLE PLEASER” NEARLY DESTROYED ME.  TAKE IT FROM ME, YOU MUST LOVE YOURSELF ENOUGH TO STOP THIS ADDICTIVE CYCLE OF APPROVAL FROM OTHERS.  YOU MUST ACCEPT YOURSELF RIGHT NOW, THE WAY YOU ARE, FLAWS AND ALL AND DECIDE WHAT HEALTHY CHANGES YOU WANT TO MAKE FOR YOUR HAPPINESS WITHOUT PLEASING OTHER PEOPLE OR HAVING TO BUY YOUR HAPPINESS OR A BAD HABIT…

LOOK DEEP WITHIN YOURSELF… WHAT DOES YOUR SPIRIT LONG FOR???

soul-searching-1

SOMETHING HAD TO PUSH THESE ENTERTAINERS  OVER “THE EDGE” AND I FEEL IT WAS THEIR UNHAPPINESS, A BIG GAP IN THEIR SOUL THAT CONSTANTLY GOT FED THE ILLUSIONS OF LIFE THAT YOU HAVE TO BE WHAT EVERYONE ELSE WANTS YOU TO BE,  TO GET THEIR APPROVAL AND NOT THE REALITY OF THE SOUL… THAT WE ARE LOVE AND TO RECEIVE THAT LOVE WE MUST FIRST LOVE OURSELVES IN A HEALTHY WAY.

I’LL QUOTE “THE GRAND ILLUSION” SONG BY STYX:

DON’T BE FOOLED BY THE RADIO, THE TV OR THE MAGAZINES

THEY SHOW YOU PHOTOGRAPHS OF HOW YOUR LIFE SHOULD BE

BUT THEY’RE JUST SOMEONE ELSE’S FANTASY

SO IF YOU THINK YOUR LIFE IS COMPLETE CONFUSION BECAUSE YOU NEVER WIN THE GAME

JUST REMEMBER THAT IT’S A GRAND ILLUSION AND DEEP INSIDE WE’RE ALL THE SAME…

WE ARE NOT SEPARATE FROM “OUR SOURCE” OF LOVE AND LIGHT, WE JUST NEED TO RECONNECT AND LOOK WITHIN OURSELVES TO FIND WHAT’S MISSING FOR OUR HAPPINESS…

THE KEY TO RECONNECTING AND “LOOKING WITHIN”  IS LISTENING BY MEDITATION, THAT’S THE FIRST STEP.

HERE’S A VIDEO SHOWING MEDITATION TECHNIQUES:

YOU WILL FIND YOUR “INNER LIGHT”

THIS SONG WRITTEN AND SUNG BY GEORGE HARRISON FOR THE BEATLES SINGS ABOUT FINDING YOUR INNER LIGHT THROUGH MEDITATION:

 LOOK DEEP WITHIN YOURSELF AND YOU’LL SEE YOUR INNER LIGHT…

innerselflightonheart

WE ARE SPIRITS LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD…

STING AND THE POLICE SING ABOUT THE ILLUSIONS OF LIVING IN A MATERIAL WORLD AND HOW WE’RE SPIRITS COPING WITH IT…

MATERIAL WORLD

GEORGE HARRISON SINGS ABOUT HOW WE LIVE IN A MATERIAL WORLD

I got born in the material world

Got worn out in the material world

You’re never gratified

Only swelling like the tide

You’re drowning in the material world

Say, what am I doing here?

I hope I can see much clearer

After living in the material world

REMEMBER, MATERIAL HAPPINESS CAN ONLY GO SO FAR… FULFILL YOUR SOUL, SEEK YOUR OWN TRUTH AND MOST OF ALL ACCEPT AND LOVE THE PERSON YOU ALREADY ARE AND YOU’LL BE A MUCH HAPPIER PERSON. 

DON’T FORGET WHAT THE TELEVISION AND RADIO TRY TO IMPRESS ON US ABOUT THE FALSENESS OF A SO-CALLED “GLAMOUROUS LIFE”.  ALL THE GOOD THINGS CAN’T BE ENJOYED UNLESS YOU LOVE AND ACCEPT YOURSELF FIRST, THE WAY YOU ARE AND THAT MATERIALISM IS JUST :

Love: Is It Cupid’s Arrow, Compatible Astrological Signs or Bio-Cosmic Energy? Twin Flames and Soulmates Explained…

Ahhhh…Love…How Do The Right Couples Attract Each Other In The First Place?

Also, what are Twin Flames and Soulmates and what is the difference between these karmic and past life loves?

kissing-lovers

Since Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, I thought this would be a great subject.

What brings two people together? Is it fate, maybe… Is it chemistry/bio-cosmic energy, or both?  Or could it be that they have Astrologically compatible signs?

YOUR MATE IS A TRUE MIRROR REFLECTION OF HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT YOURSELF, GOOD OR BAD…

Let’s also take into consideration The Law Of Attraction, like attracts alike.  What are we putting out to the universe to attract these relationships to people, especially our romantic interests?

Bio-Cosmic Energy is both within us and the universe, we have the innate, unlimited, divinely given ability to manifest into our lives anything we wish.  It’s programmed into our dna and we need to clear any negativity from ourselves and others before anything positive can be manifested.

FIRST YOU NEED TO RAISE YOUR VIBRATIONS…

Chakra Clearing is a great start, you need to not only clear your heart chakra from past and present life situations that has blocked healthy love relationships, you need to clear the rest of them for balance.

I highly suggest Doreen Virtue’s “AM/PM Chakra Clearing Meditations” book and cd combination, as the book will show you a diagram of the seven chakras and what function they each serve also the cd contains a 20 minute chakra clearing meditation in the morning and another 20 minute chakra clearing meditation before you go to bed… Very powerful, I heard my Higher Self after my first day of doing this and she said “Hello there, stranger!”  Once you have reunited with your Higher Self, you are on the path to reuniting with your Twin Flame.

yab-yum

WHO KNOWS, YOU MAY EVEN ATTRACT YOUR TWIN FLAME OR SOULMATE ONCE YOUR VIBRATIONS ARE UP…

twin-flame-chakra

This video to the song “I will find You” by Clannad describes what a Twin Flame is :

TWIN FLAMES EXPLAINED…

twin-flame-golden-ring

SPIRITS HAVING FLOWN…

twinflamesmaria

This Bee Gee’s hit “Spirits Having Flown” is about this special love taking you to new heights spiritually, a Twin Flame kind of love…

In the beginning of time, there was a great, firery, white ovoid in space and from this space sprung forth souls that would agree to divide into two parts – Male and Female as the lower density of  Earth would separate the soul. These two counterparts would then spend many lifetimes together or apart and when both have balanced their karma, only then will they be together forever…

HOW WILL I KNOW IF I’VE MET MINE???

This is a telepathic bond, one that will transcend miles, space and time, a soul-fulfilling love that nothing else can compare to…

You will feel an intense magnetic field, almost pulling you two together. The female feels it in her abdomen and the male will feel it in his mind as they are polar opposites, yin and yang…

yingyangfirenice1

You will be able to “see into” each other’s minds

You will be able to see a special “white light” in the other person’s eyes

You will feel each other’s pain, emotionally and physically…

When one is happy, angry or sad the other twin will feel it… Each twin can see holographic images of each other, whether it will be in a dream state or awake, the bond is everlasting. You are essentially the same soul. Not all twin flames get together in this lifetime as one or both may have karma to clear up, such as raising a family with a soulmate,  however they will be brought together to help heal and balance the earth and each other through helping others through healing modalities, like reiki, art, music and poetry…

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, YOU MUST HONOR AND RESPECT WHATEVER KARMIC MARRIAGES ONE OR BOTH MAY HAVE.  IF YOU ARE TRULY MEANT TO BE TOGETHER, DIVINE TIMING WILL DO JUST THAT. FOR NOW, LIVE YOUR LIFE IN THE PRESENT MOMENT AND DO YOUR OWN THING.

twin-flame-ignited

A Soulmate shares a karmic debt journey with you, like raising a family.

You help each other through the ups and downs of life and balance out both karmic duties in this lifetime.

Similar to a twin flame relationship though a completely different entity, you’ll find an extremely strong bonding in this relationship, too.

In this video, Natasha Bedingfield  sings “Soulmate” about wanting one and wondering what it would be like to have this kind of love…

First we have to love ourselves just the way we are. Sure, there’s always room for improvement, however, self-acceptance is the the first step as we will project whatever we are feeling about ourselves out to the universe and the mirror image of us will manifest in our mate.

In other words, like attracts alike.

If you’re not feeling good about yourself, you may end up with someone that mistreats you.

I know this as fact as I have had many relationships like many other of you out there that we ask ourselves “Why in the heck did I choose him or her, I didn’t ask for this treatment”… Well, subconsciously we did.

In the song “When Will I Be Loved”, the 1970’s song by Linda Ronstadt, these lyrics describe what it feels like to constantly attract the wrong guy and wonder “When Will I Be Loved”?

I’ve been cheated

Been mistreated

When will I be loved?

I’ve been put down, i’ve been pushed ’round

When will I be loved?

When I find a new man that I want for mine

He always breaks my heart in two

It happens everytime…

If we constantly put ourselves down about weight, height, looks in general we are projecting out to the universe that we just don’t like ourselves and we get a reflection of our negative attitude, like a mirror in the mate we have at the time of this negative thinking…

The universe says “Okay, we know you don’t like yourself, however, you must give us a positive affirmation of what you do like about yourself so we can start to make the change together so you can learn to love yourself and start attracting what you want in life”…

Start with anything:

“I love my smile”

“I love my hair”

Anything you can think of that you’re happy with yourself and look in the mirror and either say it in your mind or speak it out loud, whichever works.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND WATCHING “YOU CAN HEAL YOUR LIFE” BY LOUISE HAY, THIS VISUALLY DEMONSTRATES HOW POWERFUL POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS ARE AND HOW YOU CAN HEAL ALL ASPECTS OF YOUR LIFE…

Below is a video of the trailer for this movie:

REMEMBER, YOUR MATE IS A MIRROR IMAGE OF HOW YOU FEEL INSIDE ABOUT YOURSELF…

Focus on a positive goal whether it’s career or hobby…

Doing this will make BOTH your conscious and subconscious mind focus on something positive as like i’ve mentioned in my previous blogs, if the conscious mind doesn’t have a positive goal, the subconscious mind will pick a lesser one like a bad habit, bad finances, bad relationships, etc…

When we take up a hobby such as art, writing, music or dance we are putting out something positive into the world by projecting our joy out so we are going to get positive things back ten-fold… including attracting the right people and situations into our lives…

We’ll attract “High Energy” people like Evelyn Thomas sings in this video below:

“I thought love like this happened in fairytales, it hit me right between the eyes, with your high energy, your love is lifting me high….”

BRING ME A HIGHER LOVE…

“Higher Love”, this hit 80’s song by Steve Winwood talks about yearning for that higher love sent from the stars above.


ASTROLOGICALLY COMPATIBLE LOVE SIGNS

Astrology is the study of how the planets affect our daily life by how they’re positioned, especially in our natal (birth chart) which determines our Astrological sign by what house or placement of  the planet is in at the time of our birth.

These Astrological signs are listed below, I put them in birth order and who is the most compatible with them.  There are also other factors to consider such as the rising aka sun sign where the sun is in the natal chart because that’s the personality that people see you as…

Aries:  March 20-April 19th:  Most compatible with: Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius and Aquarius

Taurus: April 19th – May 20th: Most compatible with: Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn and Pisces

Gemini: May 20th – June 21st: Most compatible with: Aries, Leo, Libra and Aquarius

Cancer: June 21st- July 22nd: Most compatible with: Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio and Pisces

Leo: July 22nd- August 22nd: Most compatible with: Aries,Gemini, Libra and Sagittarius

Virgo:August 22nd- September 22nd: Most compatible with: Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio and Capricorn

Libra: September 22nd – October 23rd: Most compatible with: Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius and Aquarius

Scorpio: October 23rd-November 22nd: Most compatible with: Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn and Pisces

Sagittarius: November 22nd- December 21st: Most compatible with: Aries, Leo, Libra and Aquarius

Capricorn: December 21st-January 20th: Most compatible with: Taurus, Virgo, Aquarius, Pisces, Scorpio and Sagittarius

Aquarius: January 20th-February 19th: Most compatible with: Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Pisces and Aries

Pisces: February 19th-March 20th: Most compatible with: Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio and Capricorn

Here’s a 70’s classic done by The Floaters named “Float On” in which each singer tells which sign he is and what he’s looking for in a mate:

“Cancer, and my name is Larry, I like a woman who loves everything and everybody”…

CUPID CAN’T DO ALL OF THE WORK…

cupid1

REMEMBER, WE ARE THE PILOTS OF OUR SOUL, WE MUST TAKE CREATIVE RESPONSIBILITY FOR OURSELVES AND DO THE CHAKRA CLEARING AND OTHER ENERGY WORK NECESSARY TO RAISE OUR VIBRATIONS FOR OUR HIGHER LOVE MATE…

If we are emotionally unavailable, we will then attract emotionally unavailable, sometimes really needy  people to ourselves, in essence, we are saying to the universe “I’m just not ready for any soul-fulfulling, loving relationship”…The universe will reply “Okay, we’ll send you someone who is emotionally unavailable until you are ready to love and be loved”…

Here’s an example of unrequited love in the form of this song “Cupid” the remake of Sam Cooke’s legendary classic by the multi-talented Amy Winehouse

” I love a man who doesn’t know I exist”

Talk about being emotionally unavailable love…

Only when you learn to love yourself  and learn how to create happy situations  by doing the things that give us joy, you’ll see a world of difference.

Distance yourself  from negative people and their situations as they will attract bad things to you…

I know what you’re thinking “shouldn’t I help these people”?

Sure, you can try, but if you find you’re being physically and mentally drained and there’s no progress in this situation, then my advice to you is DISTANCE YOURSELF, don’t cut yourself off completely.

Trust me, I was like a bug attracted to a bug zapper in these situations, they only hurt you in the long run…

We must remember, these people are on their life’s journey, too and they must learn from life’s bumps.  We can’t take those experiences away from them…

Here’s a poem i’ve been given as a little girl and it still stays true today:

GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE

GIVE ME THE COURAGE AND WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE…

This is so true…

Once we learn how to love ourselves in a healthy way, we attract our healthy mirror image of ourselves in our mate, and before we know it, we’ll be with someone worthy of our love and who knows, even have a love greater than Cupid himself and Psyche… A twin flame kind of love…

Golden Solar Ring Of Fire: Stargate Of Awakening And Enlightenment To 2012

On Monday, January 5th, I had a dream of a ring of fire, with a black planet in front of it, I knew it was a solar eclipse as I could see the flares shooting up and out that dream symbol had a very significant meaning to it. I was dreaming of the Golden Ring of enlightenment and how it is beckoning starseeds and wayshowers to educate people about healing each other and the planet..

ring-pass-not

Here’s a video explaining what exactly the Golden Ring Of Fire is and how it will affect us all:

What does this ring of fire mean for starseeds and wayshowers?  The video below describes exactly this:

This video will explain about what wayshowers are, visionary people who “show the way” to a better life:

This video shows how the Golden Ring helps wayshowers :

Through the very powerful media of  computers, television and satellite radio, music, art, photography and writing starseeds will be the wayshowers, or educators for people to heal themselves and others by “showing the way” of a more peaceful, healthy society.

A lot of people such as myself have already been “awakening” into their “initiation”, this new era of psychic and spiritual advancement and in 2009 have seen or dreamt of this intense Golden Ring Of Fire, a solar eclipse that is a symbol of a gateway opening up, a portal of amazing size and strength that will give us the education we need to take this world into a better, more peaceful state for 2012 by reprogramming our dna.  This is our sign that the ascension process is already beginning.

On December 21st, 2012 as a lot of you know, the planets will align themselves and create a force field that amplifies our latent gifts and talents that will help others.  I don’t feel it’s anything to fear.

We must get rid of fear and negativity to the best of our abilities as when this shift does occur, our thoughts, both good and fearful will be amplified. We will have even more of this ability like we already have to create our own heaven or hell on earth, it’s up to us what we decide…

Below is a video about the awakening process starting from 2008 to 2012, this explains a lot about what is going on now…

After seeing this Golden Ring Of Fire, a lot of us will notice number sequences like the time 11:11 which means the universe is taking a “snapshot of your thoughts” and will manifest them…

Since tonight, Sunday, January 25th, will be an eclipse, I thought this blog would be symbolic of my dream and how much information i’ve acquired since about it’s meaning…

May your journey of awakening and enlightenment give you all of the tools for transformation you’ll need for the 2012 shift of consciousness…

Life’s Journey: If You Don’t Know Where You’re Going, Any Road Will Take You There: How to enjoy life’s little “twist and turns” along the way…

Life’s little “twist and turns” are not always easy, as we have to learn to enjoy the journey, not just the end goal…

twists-and-turns3

Do you find yourself  worrying about life’s twist and turns on your path and how far along you’ve progressed?

There’s a saying “enjoy the journey, not the destination”, which speaks volumes and rings so true…

No matter what destiny brings forth to you, always remember that you are always in the right place at the right time. Even if we get off our path, our angels always put us back on the right one, it may be a different route, however, but nevertheless the right path…

Here’s a song about how “Any Road” can take you there by George Harrison, it goes like this:

“If you don’t know where your going, any road can take you there”

Below is the video of this song, enjoy it!:

YOU MAY FIND YOURSELF IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD LOOKING AT YOUR NEXT TURN..

This 80’s hit from The Pretenders has the classic line “I’m standing in the middle of the road with my pants behind me”…

This song sings about the different choices we can make in our life…

EVERY DAY IS A WINDING ROAD, BUT WE’RE ALL GETTING A LITTLE BIT CLOSER…

This video, “Everyday Is A Winding Road”  by Cheryl Crow is saying that step by step, inch by inch we are getting closer to feelin’ fine and most importantly, stay in the moment. Here’s a quote from this song:

Jump in, let go

Relax, enjoy the show

Everybody get high, everybody get low

These are the days

Where anything goes

Everyday is a winding road

I get a little bit closer

Everyday is a faded sign

I get a little bit closer to feelin’ fine…

YOU MAY ASK YOURSELF…”HOW DID I GET HERE”???

You got where you are today by the choices and baby steps you took to take them. This applies to both the positive and negative aspects of life… Everything is free will and even if we’re not where we would like to be, this can be changed by you being proactive in the changes and also your guardian angels putting you in the right place at the right time. Positive goals and affirmations are a must for the changes we wish to seek on the winding road of our journey of life…

This video is from The Talking Heads, their 1984 hit “Once In A Lifetime” says “You May Ask Yourself… How Did I Get Here???

TAKING THE ROAD TO NOWHERE…LIVING IN THE PRESENT MOMENT…

This Talking Heads classic sung by David Byrne  “Road To Nowhere” talks about the road of life and living in the present moment…

Think of these twists and turns as opportunities for something bigger and better for you, even if  something bad happens, there’s always something great waiting on the other side of  this, like a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow…

REMEMBER, IF YOU HIT A BUMP IN THE ROAD, IT’S LEADING YOU TO YOUR RIGHT DESTINATION…

There’s a saying  One day everything will all make perfect sense

So for now, laugh at the confusion

Smile through the tears

And weep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason…

THE LONG AND WINDING ROAD THAT LEADS TO YOUR DOOR (OF TRUTH)

paul-mc-cartney

I kept hearing “The Long And Winding Road” by The Beatles one day, like 6 times and I took it as a sign to paint Paul Mc Cartney and ponder where my long and winding road was taking me, I realized that it will lead you to your door of truth, your soul’s purpose in life no matter how many wacky twists and turns it takes to get there…

Here is the video for “The Long And Winding Road” by The Beatles:

It takes a little time sometimes to get your feet back on the ground…

When you get a huge life-changing event that just rocks your world, remember this as you must take baby steps towards your life’s journey…

Here’s a quote from the song “It Takes A Little Time” by Amy Grant

It takes a little time sometimes, to get your feet on the ground

It takes a little time to get the titanic turned back around

It takes a little time sometimes

But baby you’re not goin’ down

It takes more than you’ve got right now

So give it time

You can’t fix this pain with money

You can’t rush a weary soul

You can’t sweep it under the rug, now honey

It don’t take alot to know…

Take the time to feel groovy…

smiley-face

Here’s the video for “Feelin’ Groovy” by Harper’s Bizarre

teaching us to take time to smell the roses while we’re on this journey  called life…


Put one foot in front of the other and soon you will be walking out that door…It’s not a race!

Here’s the classic song “Put One Foot In Front Of The Other” by Mickey Rooney and Keenan Wynn  from the adorable Rankin-Bass claymation classic “Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town”

Go your own pace, don’t worry about how far other people have gone and what they think of you, it’s only your opinion of yourself that matters.

Your journey of life will be fulfilling throughout every twist and turn as you learn to live in the present moment and take one baby step at a time…

Healing Angels Of Light – How Angel Therapy Can Assist Us In Our Daily Lives

starseeds

Angels can assist us in our daily lives in so many ways, all they want is for us to pay attention to the signs they give us and to learn how to contact them… Here are some excerpts from Doreen Virtue’s book “Healing With The Angels” which shows you some of the signs angels give you to help assist you with daily living:

angel-healing

These are the ways angels communicate with us:

By showing numbers in sequences, below is what these sequences mean:

111- Monitor your thoughts carefully and be sure to think only about what you want, not what you don’t want as 111 is a sign that there is a gate of opportunity opening up and your thoughts are manifesting into form at record speeds.

222- Your newly planted ideas are beginning to grow into reality.  Don’t quit five minutes before the miracle! Your manifestation is soon going to be evident to you, so keep up the good work! Keep holding positive thoughts, keep affirming and continue visualizing.

333- The ascended masters are near you, desiring you to know that you have their help. don’t worry because the angel’s help is nearby.

444- The angels are surrounding you now, reassuring you of their love and help.

555-  Buckle your seatbelts, because a major life change is upon you.  This change should not be viewed as being positive or negative since all change is but a natural part of life’s flow. Maybe this change is an answer to your prayers, so continue seeing and feeling yourself being at peace.

666-  Your thoughts are out of balance right now,  focused too much on the material world.  This number sequence asks you to balance your thoughts between heaven and earth.  The angels ask you to focus on spirit and service and know that your material and emotional needs will automatically be met as a result…

777-  The angels applaud you- congratulations, you’re on a roll!  Keep up the good work and know that your wish is coming true. This is an extremely positive sign and means that you should also expect more miracles to occur.

888-  A phase of your life is about to end, and this is a sign to give you forewarning so you can prepare.  This number sequence may mean that you are winding up an emotional, career or relationship phase.  It also means that there is light at the end of the tunnel.  In other words, don’t procrastinate making your move or enjoying the fruits of your labor.

999- Completion.  This is the end of a big phase in your personal or global life.  Also, it is a message to lightworkers involved in Earth healing and means “Get to work because Mother Earth needs you now”…

000-A reminder that you are one with God and to feel the presence of your Creator’s love within you. Also it is a sign that a situation has gone full circle.

Below are some more ways that the angels assist us, but first here is a very healing video with some very nice photos of angels…It’s named “Healing Angels Of Light”…

Angel intervention in your love life…

Sometimes we are lead directly to our soulmate/twinflame by divine intervention, say if you’re running an errand and bump into someone or get invited to a party and meet someone there or if you’re visiting someone in a hospital and you meet someone there, it’s the angels leading you to your destiny…

Below is a video for Bobby Helm’s 1957 song “You Are My Special Angel” about his love sent from heaven…

Angel intervention in your personal safety…

Say you get stuck behind someone having a problem at a cash register or someone driving extremely slow and are wondering why it’s taking so long, maybe it’s because the angels are keeping you there for a reason, to avoid an accident or other undesirable situation…

Angel intervention in joy and creativity…

Sometimes we get our inspiration to paint, write, sing or play music from the angels as we get almost an “instant download” of  images and songs in our minds that inspire us to do these creative things…

One of my favorite ways angels communicate with us is by using actual signs or a saying on a license plate or bumper sticker to let us know we’re on the right path.  One day I was sad and alone when I seen a bumper sticker that read “God loves You” and I felt like I wasn’t so alone anymore…

Angels are always surrounding us and giving us guidance if we look for the signs.

Pure Imagination – Mind Over Matter: Creative Responsibility

You can “create your day” as J.Z. Knight explains in the documentary movie “The Secret”.  You can either have thoughts of what can go wrong with it or project happy, positive thoughts that can make your day great, creative and productive.  Worrying and constantly debating (like I used to do) just attracts negative things to you and this affects all aspects of your life.   You can do great things if you put your mind to it, even in the worst of circumstances… Focus on a positive goal. This line from the song “Pure Imagination” from “Willy Wonka”  says it all:

If you want to view paradise

Simply look around and view it

Anything you want to, do it

Want to change the world, there’s nothing to it…

pure-imagination2

Below I will list the steps of what can be done, but first I am going to present a video with Gene Wilder singing “Pure Imagination” from the movie “Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory” that has inspired me since I was a child, I hope it inspires you too!   ” Hold your breath, make a wish, count to three”…

The steps to creative responsibility:

1) Take full responsibility for our lives and not blame others for our negative responses to situations.  We are responsible for how we respond to negative situations, we can choose not to allow other people to affect us negatively because by doing so would give others power over our feelings and responses.  I choose to take negative situations with a “grain of salt” and consider these as “lessons learned” on my life’s journey…

2) Make the best out of a bad situation, like the saying goes ” when life gives you lemons, make lemonade”.  Know that every bad situation has a positive outcome /solution.  Sometimes it takes a bad thing for a good thing to happen.

3) Realize that if your conscious mind doesn’t have a positive goal, that your subconscious mind will pick a “lesser” or undesirable goal such as relationship problems, financial problems, bad habits such as smoking and anything negative as your subconscious mind stores bad experiences from this and past lives and puts these incidents much like a file cabinet into storage. 

4) Focus on a positive goal as this will train the subconscious mind to focus on a positive situation instead of pulling up old, cyclical problems from this and past lives.  Hobbies are great for this, you do something fun and positive and more positive situations come your way…

5) Positive affirmations – the same as mantras, they are either spoken or meditated on.  Positive phrases like ” I am loved” ,” I am getting stronger every day” ,”life is beautiful”, “I am losing weight in a healthy way everyday”, “my wealth continues to grow” amongst others and get index cards or paper, write them out and post it on the refrigerator, bathroom mirror, bedroom and anywhere else where you see them everyday so that you focus on positive things…

6)  Believe it and you’ll achieve it!!!  The power of the mind to change our environment is so strong and life – changing…

I love this techno version of the original “Pure Imagination” by Psychonaut, it makes me want to get up and dance!  Enjoy!!!

LET YOUR PURE IMAGINATION RUN WILD!!!

GO CREATE A GREAT DAY!!!
