Spiritual Purging? 10 Tips on What You Can Do To Ease The Transition During The Cosmic Shifts

Feeling tired? Been sick? Not sure if you have a cold, the flu or just something in between? Experiencing a storm?

You are not alone. This blog is dedicated to share my personal journey through these recent cosmic shifts and what you can do. Many of us have been experiencing quite a bit of cosmic purging with ascension symptoms that are becoming physical manifestations of a cold or something flu-like. If this sounds like you, I’ve got it too. It feels flu like, but it is not.

Curious?

But how do I know the difference between being sick and a spiritual purge? Well it could be one or the other or a manifestation of both. I personally experienced both.

First of all, if you have any physical, mental , or emotional ailments, make sure you seek proper medical attention as necessary. If everything is ruled out or something seems grander than your diagnosis, then consider your experience one of cosmic proportion.

Well let’s take a quick review of recent cosmic events. For the last several months we have been reviewing, redoing, purging, and letting go of what no longer serves us so we may ring in the new us. 

If you have been watching or reading any of the astrological or cosmic reports lately, the kind of changes we are experiencing are of grand magnitudes like we have never experienced before in our lifetimes. We are all experiencing these changes including Mother Earth as I wrote about on February 25th on the Spiritual Paradoxes After A Storm.

 

The last few weeks may have felt like emotions to extremes as I wrote about on March 2nd with Lessons During The Bipolar Ping Pong Match of Emotions To Extremes. We have experienced a multitude of solar flares, soulful upgrades, planetary shifts, super full moons and super new moons, and the like.
Today I surrender to what is.
I let go of what was.
I have faith in God in what will be. – Laura Healing With Spirit

I like most of you have been doing my work to let go and let God … to purge whatever resistance is holding me back from receiving all that I deserve … to let go control and fears … to trust more and have faith in the my divine purpose … to believe in my divine purpose … and then suddenly, on Friday March 20th, 2015 on Super new moon, spring/fall equinox (depending on which side of the equator you are on) and the Solar eclipse, wham I get hit with a flu-like illness. It started off Monday, March 16th with overwhelming fatigue that grew throughout the week.

I found the timing of me getting sick with the most recent new moon, solar eclipse, and Spring Equinox is quite interesting. I was aware of what this manifestation could be and resorted to my holistic methods to treat the physical ailments while doing the spiritual work to treat the mental and spiritual components.

 

“After a storm rises lessons of renewal”
– Laura Healing With Spirit (c) 2014

The roller coaster of symptoms I’ve personally experienced over the past week with onset of cold-like/flu-like symptoms on Friday were puzzling.

From fatigue and insomnia to fatigue and oversleeping to flu-like break out to quick recovery in 48hrs to relapse with increase in body aches, sinus headaches, and ear aches to understanding that this is part of what I am supposed to experience right now in order to clear the path for the new to having some deep conversations with a trusted confidant. 

I do practice what I preach, but I am still human like all of you. I am aware of the energy vibrations I that are reflected back from the Universe and the energy vibrations I send out. I am getting better every day like all of you. Whether good or bad, the chaotic energies we have been experiencing have exaggerated some things in our life to bring attention to unfinished business, and in some cases exaggerated things to a point of non-reality.  I wrote about how to safeguard yourself from these kind of issues on March 19th with  10 Tips To Get You Through The March 20th Equinox, Super New Moon, and Solar Eclipse.
Like many of you, I told myself “But I did a lot of purging and acceptance and letting go, there is not anything left?” Can you relate at all? If that were true, then my recent illness would not have resulted. Sometimes the biggest lies we tell are to ourselves. No one is immune to this.
“Dear Universe, Please help me to find and implement
solutions to life’s difficulties. Thank you”
– Laura Healing With Spirit (c) 2013-2015

It is important to remember as we journey to the next phase of our life, remember what shifts we are wanting to create. This is a journey to be taken inward right now. All the answers we seek lie within. However, some external guidance from someone who has your highest and best interest at hand can assist you with identifying those shifts as it was deeply helpful for me.

We are being given an opportunity to change our life and fully align with the Universe as long as we let go of all of the things holding us back.  The biggest challenge for many of us is about learning to let go and let God knowing we are in good hands. Hence, get out of our own way. A lesson I know ohhhhh too well, and clearly the Universe is reminding me to get out of my own way.

I write a lot about messages from the divine and one especially comes to mind Expansion Mode … Getting Unstuck … Moving Past Fear that I wrote about my connection to the divine and messages I received that day from a hawk. There is no coincidences in life … just synchronicities. This redtail hawk seen that day was a wonderful confirmation of where we are and how to move forward.

Basically, the Universe is reminding all of us once again, like Dorothy in Wizard of Oz, we’ve had the power all along.

Breathe in… Breathe out – Laura Healing With Spirit
Right now you are being asked to reach deep within and up your own in your inner reserve. Take a deep breathe. Quiet the mind and rise or lift above the emotional level that has been wreaking havoc in your life lately.
While calming the mind, you get clarity. While here, try to separate from any turmoil that you may find disruptive. So it is a matter of shifting perspective in this case.

After you do this, take some mental notes. Observe what is happening around you. Don’t partake especially if you sense any kind of opposition or hostility. Just become the observer.

This is a lesson about going within and learning to shift. You can take another approach to whatever has been resistant and still achieve your purpose. Hence the term, think outside the box. Success is closer than you think.

 

2015; The Year For Manifesting and Empowerment.
(c) 2015 Healing With Spirit

You just need to get out of your own way and partner with your higher self and the Universe. Try it. What do you have to lose? What do you have to gain?

Remember, 2015; The Year For Manifesting and Empowerment.  This is the year for mastering inner strength, leaving fear behind us and manifesting miracles for success. The Universe has been assisting us by clearing a path for us. However, are we too busy being busy to see … to hear … to feel?

So here are the tips to take with you today:
  1. We are being called upon to first listen. We say our prayers and ask all the time, but few actually take the time out to listen for the responses.
  2. Get plenty of restful sleep. Our bodies do most of its repair while asleep.
  3. Tune out and turn off electronic devises as all they create more static energy vibrations.
  4. Drink plenty of water. This will keep your body well hydrated as well as assist the body in removing toxins.
  5. Eat more fruits and vegetables and avoid processed foods.
  6. Be mindful of your energy … actions and reactions. Spring cleaning maybe called to order.
  7. Practice the art of forgiveness and start with the self. It is hard to forgive others if we first do not forgive ourselves. This is a topic that I am feeling to be writing more about for the month of April. So stay tuned.
  8. Allow yourself to grieve over anything that is still unresolved. It is time to give yourself permission and stop resisting. Resisting or ignoring will just breed illness and dis-ease.
  9. Get outside and into nature. This has a multitude of benefits including:
    1. Nature helps us to reconnect with the self;
    2. It grounds us
    3. It has healing properties and much more.
  10. Finally, let go and trust that the Universe has your back. This is a huge test of faith.
With Faith … anything is possible. – Laura Healing With Spirit

As always, I would love to hear about your experiences. Please leave your feedback as it helps me help you. Have a blessed day.

10 Tips To Get You Through The March 20th Equinox, Super New Moon, and Solar Eclipse

Tomorrow represents a big cosmic event and the shift we been waiting for.
Solar eclipse + Super New Moon + Spring Equinox = One Powerful Day
So as we continue through the day, remember “Every vibration you send out is mirrored back to you by the Universe”

Have you been feeling all the effects astrological weather and cosmic storms? How about what many of us are labeling the “ascension flu”? What about any energetic pulls? Do things seem to be spiraling out of control or do they seem to be balancing themselves out? Are your fears, insecurities, anxieties or the like heightened and not sure why? How is your sleep?

Many of us sensitive folk have been experiencing everything from headaches, sore throats, buzzing in the ears, body aches especially in the back area, sleep disturbances, chronic fatigue etc. This is not to mention the increase in anxiety, insecurities, fears, old traumas, old PTSD symptoms that you may thought have gone away.  If you can relate to any of these, you are not alone. Like what I wrote in my March post, much of the energies lately are about “Lessons During The Bipolar Ping Pong Match of Emotions to Paradoxical Extremes.

It may feel like a little of Pandora’s Box has been opened… the feeling of everything caving in around you or everything finally blossoming … the yin and yang … the feeling of everything ending or everything beginning … feeling of endless possibilities or endless perils … rebirth, renewal and regeneration or death, endings and regeneration … energy surges or energy purges.

So be extra mindful of the energetic ripples you are sending out to the Universe and the ripples that are being reflected back at you. Whether good or bad, the chaotic energies right now could be exaggerating some things in your life to bring attention to unfinished business.

It is important to remember as we journey to the next phase of our life, remember what shifts you are wanting to create. This is a journey is to be taken inward right now. All the answers you seek lie within.

Things to keep in mind while you experience these shifts

  1. Drink lots of water to keep your body hydrated and flushed.
  2. Be mindful of your energy … actions and reactions
  3. Get plenty of sleep. Sleep does a body good.
  4. Stay balanced and grounded. This means you may need to step up your spiritual protections and practices such as prayer and meditation.
  5. Journal your experiences. I am a big fan of journaling your experiences as it helps you to see what you may not have before.
  6. Watch the ego as the ego will want to pull you back into the place you want to leave behind you and will prey upon your fears and anxieties.
  7. Practice the art of forgiveness and start with the self. It is hard to forgive others if we first do not forgive ourselves.
  8. Allow yourself to grieve over anything that is still unresolved. It is time to give yourself permission and stop resisting.
  9. Learn to laugh and dance more. This raises the vibration and creates more positive changes not to mention the physiological energetic and chemical shifts within the body.
  10. Finally, let go and trust that the Universe has your back. This is a huge test of faith.

The journey we are now faced with has a lot to do with faith. You are asked to trust and take a step into the unknown … to walk off that cliff not knowing if you will fall or walking on the next step. … to leap off that branch not knowing what to do or trusting you have the instincts to know how to fly. However, you are also being reminded to be careful of the choices you do make.  Above all, remember … it is always darkest before dawn. The light always returns.

So for today, the Universe is beckoning you to do some introspection and to go deep within the shadows of the self to find the answers you seek. This is a message I have been stating all week with daily #CardOfTheDay draws which can be found on Pinterest or on my Facebook Page . Also, be kind and gentle to yourself. This is necessary if you wish to yield the results you seek.

I think Yoga says it well …

We are being given an opportunity to change our life and fully align with the Universe as long as we let go of all of the things holding us back.  Biggest challenge for many of us is about learning to let go and let God knowing we are in good hands. Hence, get out of our own way.

You have a choice here. We are all given free will. The Universe has been pounding on us to get us to see, but at the end of the day, we choose our fate.  What do you choose?

To learn more about the cosmic energy shifts, here is a good basic article on  “The Energetic Properties of the Celestial Alignment on March 20th”.

We are experiencing the ride of our lives. Let’s rock this world and enjoy it.

As always, I would love to hear about your experiences. Please leave your feedback as it helps me help you.  Have a blessed day.

Lessons During The Bipolar Ping Pong Match of Emotions to Paradoxical Extremes

Ahhhhhh March is finally here. February sure proved to be a struggle for so many. What we’ve experienced lately is what I want to call, “a bipolar ping pong match” of emotions to paradoxical extremes … And … if you live in New England, you know what I mean with the constant bombardment of snow storms right after another literally and metaphorically with the fallout of lots of anger, frustration, stress as well as peace, beauty, and grace. Many even experienced roof collapses, loss of work, injuries, accidents,or burst pipes.

February 2015 after receiving over 95″ of snow in Weymouth, MA (c) Laura Joseph, Healing With Spirit.

We came into the new year knowing it would begin with some challenges with stuff we still needed to work on that was residual from last year before it balanced out. However, what we’ve experienced lately was way above our expectations to say the least. Nonetheless, we gained many valuable lessons that will carry us through to the next chapter in our life if we paid attention.

I recently read a post by Abraham-Hicks that made me stop and think as it relates to everything that has been occurring in and around us.

“In the same way that the Law of Attraction is responding to the thoughts, words, and actions that you are offering here in your physical reality, the Law of Attraction is always responding powerfully to your Vibrational Reality. When the Law of Attraction, the Universal manager of all Vibrations, responds to the clarity of Vibration offered by your expanding Inner Being, the result is a powerful swirling Vortex of attraction.”

You may need to read that several times for it to truly sink in. We create our own realities by the very vibrations or ripples we create. Have you taken an assessment lately of the vibrations you are creating? Are you running ragged without a thought to what is being created vibrationally or are you taking time out to realize this is all part of the greater master plan to bring us closer to our divine soulful path to what we came in this world to do?

Are you focused on all the drama, chaos, and tragedy around you or are you seeing the silver lining through it all? Do you see the blank pages ahead of you? You are the author of your own life. You choose from this moment on what is written in those pages.

Is the path you seek visible? Blocked? or Open?
(c) 2015 Laura Joseph, Healing With Spirit

Over the past several weeks, we’ve seen an uprising of peace, beauty, and positive change mixed with sudden bursts of fury and rage. With each occurrence, we were tested … challenged … to become the master of our own ship. We were reminded to shift our focus and count our blessings.

None of us were immune. I know for me personally February was difficult on many levels. The challenges I have been attempting to clear, purge, and heal over the last 10 years were magnified over the past several weeks. However, we are all given choices. We could choose to wallow in our chaos or rise above it.

The first step is to always remain present no matter what life presents to you. Living in the past and the future if you have tried is like a hamster riding the wheel and can’t get off. Nothing changes.

The past is past and can not be changed no matter what you do. Staying there only holds you back and breeds depression. Ever see the movie Groundhog DayWell staying in the past, is like reliving the same day over and over and over again and no matter what you do. It is always the same. So how do you break the cycle? Start with acceptance and forgiveness of the past and all those associated with it.

Living in the future with all the what if’s, only breeds worrying and anxiety of things, people, and situations that may never happen which could lead to more negative outcomes. So what are your choices? Stay present and begin manifesting what you want.

So what did I do?

I chose to see all the chaos and fury that was around me with the beauty and magic in it all. I even devouted a series of photos called the “The 2015 Ice-capades of Icicle Craziness” as part of my journey and discovery. I chose to appreciate the beauty and the paradox at the same time of such destruction by mother nature from these recent winter storms. I can not recall the last time I saw such magnificent icicles in my lifetime. These were quite beautiful in the fury and destruction of it all.

Here is a sampling of my pictures from my icicle ventures …

What else did I learn?

I learned to surround myself with others who not only would see the bright side of things, but knew me well enough to remind me of the journey and path I am on. Hence, staying focused on the goal on where I want to be in my life. 

So I continued to engulf myself in these storms from their beauty in the fury to the life that emerges afterwards. I travelled to various parts of Massachusetts looking to see what Mother Nature had in store for me. I saw this as an adventure and an exciting one at that. 

Here is a sampling of images from my journey this past month.

 

For myself, I chose appreciate the small things and count my blessings through all this chaos. A lot of possibilities arose if we open ourselves to see.

Spring is around the corner. All the storms we have been experiencing literally and metaphorically will soon come to an end. The grips of Father winter are waning with the emergence of spring.  March is finally here and marks change no matter where you are on the planet. It also signifies a new season of life for those on the northern hemisphere. Right now it is important to keep the faith under all the blankets of snow.

New growth is upon all of us.  March signifies the emergence of spring and the beginning of your seeds to emerge from the ground. This is a huge transformational month for all of us. How we choose our thoughts … How we choose to act and react … How we choose to move forward … How we nurture those seeds are crucial. So be aware and mindful, but make sure to keep the faith…. How we nourish those seeds we planted will determine the outcome.

(c) 2015 Laura Healing With Spirit.

What February has taught us was quite valuable even though you may not quite see it yet. Just like you don’t see the emergence of crocuses, tulips, and daffodils under the mountains of snow waiting to burst through.

The universe is asking you to get a grip of your emotions and step outside the box so you can look at things from a new perspective. It is time for you to surrender your anxieties and worries over to the Universe and let go of things you can not control.

So just for today, pause for a moment. Take a slow deep breath and focus on all the positives in your life. Stay present and begin to watch your life transform. You just might surprise yourself about what you will discover. You have a blank page and new chapter. What will you write? The Universe has spoken like the Great Oz himself. Now the choice is yours on what to do.

Have a blessed day.

Whether Things Are Good or Bad … Go Up

When in doubt … go up …

When nothing seems to be going your way … go up …

When emotions are fluctuating like a ping pong match … go up …

You’re not alone in this journey … so go up anyway …

When you are at peace and filled with love and gratitude … go up…

When you finally get that breakthrough you have been aching for … go up

Whether things have been difficult for you or great for you, go up and welcome the divine into your heart … your Angels, Spirit, God, Ascended Masters, the Universe …

Ask for their help and guidance and turn over your worries to them … be grateful and thank them for their assistance and especially for when things are going right.

This photo was taken Wednesday morning just after sunrise after our 5th major snow in 6 wks. The sun was shining, the sky was blue, the snow on the tree limbs beautiful, birds chirping. Spring is closer than you think.

Have a blessed day.

Spiritual Paradoxes After A Storm

“Never forget the beauty that rises after every storm.” The sun returns and this morning’s sunrise in #Quincyma after last night’s snowfall is absolutely magnificent. 

More snow?

Well there sure has been some paradoxical extremes lately … And … if you live in New England,  you know what I mean with the constant bombardment of snow storms and blizzards right after another over the past six weeks with the fallout of lots of anger, frustration, and stress. 

We came into the new year knowing it would begin with some challenges before it balances out. However, what we’ve experienced was above our expectations to say least so far, but with many valuable lessons if you pay attention. 

We’ve seen an uprising of peace, beauty, and positive change mixed with sudden bursts of fury. This sunrise is a reminder to shift your focus and count your blessings.  Spring is around the corner literally and metaphorically. How we nourish those seeds we planted will determine the outcome.  

So just for today, focus on all the positives in your life,  and watch your life transform.  You have a blank page and new chapter. What will you write?  The Universe has spoken like the Great Oz himself.  Now the choice is yours on what to do.  Have a blessed day.

I Appreciate You

It has been a rough few weeks for so many people especially for those bombarded with the recent snow storms, roof collapses, etc in New England. This is a picture I took a couple days ago after the 5th major snow storm in New England in the last month. I was in awe of the beauty of the sun setting against the cool snow. For myself, I am trying to appreciate the small things and count my blessings through all this chaos.

So today I wanted to let you know I appreciate you and I am grateful for you. You are special!

Have a blessed day.

Death Is Merely A Transformation …

#MessageFromSpirit:

“Death is merely a transformation, and shedding of the old and reborn a new. There have been many changes happening around you … externally, internally, and spiritually over the last several weeks and months. For some, this was like ship sailing in smooth waters. For others, it may have felt like the hurricane of a lifetime. You have been experiencing what a caterpillar experiences inside a cocoon. We have shredded a lot of the old and our fears so the new may emerge. We have merely experienced the natural process of the dying with many changes of a very deep inner transformation. Be open and be ready for the butterfly to emerge from the cocoon. We are here to guide you. We are here to help you. We hear your struggles. We cannot assist you unless you fully and completely surrender to receive the help and guidance to assist you in your divine purpose.”

These messages from spirit and photographs are designed for the purpose of sharing the messages of hope and healing. Please share this message with those who need it. Have a blessed day.

After a Storm Rises Lessons Of Renewal

First Published: November 1, 2014

Every one of us experiences a storm.  No one is immune.

I wrote this a while back called “Reflections” and wanted to share with you the light at the end of every storm.

It is all about how we ride these storms which will determine how we emerge.  Please share this message as it is designed to give hope and healing to all who need it.

Have a blessed day.

REFLECTIONS 

Funny how life works … sitting here at Blue Hills thinking about how hard things have been over the last 10yrs for me, my family and many other wonderful people I know and all the beautiful surprises that are beginning to emerge. I am sharing this not to get sympathy, but to show that no matter how dire life can seem, anything can change in a moment if we have faith.

I was VERY successful in many past endeavours which in light of recent exciting events have been getting much reflection lately. However, some of my greatest challenges surfaced over the passed 4yrs w a brutal narcissistic abusive ex who has been relentless in attempts to destroy my life at all costs … and at a calculatable financial loss of over $600k. I can not control what he chooses to do. However, I can choose my reactions to his grievous and malicious actions.

Through these very difficult life lessons with a karmic past, I was forced to close a very successful health and wellness business and later laid off from teaching at a wonderful college with some of the most amazing people I have ever met. I have never had so many obstacles in life and career as I have since 2006 all as a result of NOT listening to my gut and marrying the wrong person. At times, losing faith that things would turn around.

The pendulum has swung. The Phoenix has risen. And karma is quite angry. As the saying goes, every dog gets their day. I am still waiting, but I grow more hopeful every day.

Of coarse I had to deal with these aweful things, and struggled many times trying to find ways to not let things out of my control, control my life and destroy all the successful potentials I had to offer life. I went back to my roots. Accepted certain gifts I have … many I am still working on accepting my abilities and talents. … Opened myself to ALL opportunities before me regardless of restrictions … confronted and overcame many fears (still working on many) . .. and stayed connected to my spirituality. .. The gutters have been cleaned, scrubbed, and ready for the water to flow freely once again through the channels of success in the spring.

I am grateful for all the blessings and surprised opportunities that have been rising over the passed few months. Many of these including celebrity events, charity events, volunteer movie set opportunities. However, the greatest opportunity was having the courage to come out of the closet regarding my psychic mediumship abilities which have been utilized in the past to some degree to help me in my work in health care with analysis, treatment, and patient care as well as my teaching style in the college, helping other victims of abuse to heal, my church, my spirituality and elsewhere.

I am even MOST grateful for those individuals who have entered into my life during the darkest of my days. Yet became my friend, supported me, and loved me unconditionally without judgement. You all know who you are. I am grateful. All the wonderful transformations happening in my life now, I owe to you. I love you all and hopes I can be there for each and every one of you as you have for me. I have never felt more like me again as I have over the past few months.

Thank you all and thank you spirit for finally placing my life back on track.

With lots of love and appreciation,

Laura

2015; The Year For Manifesting and Empowerment

“2015 – The year for mastering inner strength, leaving fear behind you, and manifesting miracles for success.” – Laura Healing With Spirit, Spiritual Medium, Speaker, Teacher

Welcome 2015. It’s a new day. It’s a new year. Let bygones be bygones. The sun is shining. We all woke up alive and breathing.

2014 was quite the year for change to say the least. We experienced huge emotional storms. H…owever, these storms set the stage of a solid foundation for great things to manifest and come.

Faith was certainly pushed to it’s limits this past year. However, at the end of the day, all we have is faith. With faith, all things are possible.

The personal storms are clearing. It is time to leave the past behind you and close that chapter to begin the next. The sun is returning. This is a perfect time to plant those heirloom seeds you have been wanting to plant. It is time to begin anew.

Have a little bit more faith and move forward without fear. Let’s go to work and make this year great. Happy New Year.

With lots of love and appreciation,

The Ripple Effect and Spirituality

By: Laura from Healing With Spirit 9/29/12  (From a lecture given at the First Spiritualist Church of RI)

How many of you liked to skip stones when you are a kid? How many of you still like to skip stones? How many still actually do it?

We are all here for a reason today in this wonderful church. But have you actually stopped to think what brought you here? Have you actually stopped to think about what is spirituality and what it means to you?

Spirituality is a belief that focuses on one’s understanding of natural law enabling the person to discover his/her inner path of being and it is an integral aspect of many religious experiences such as Spiritualism.

Wikipedia definition:  “Spirituality in this context may be a matter of nurturing thoughts, emotions, words, and actions that are in harmony with the belief that everything in the universe is mutually dependent; this stance has much in common with some versions of Buddhist spirituality. A modern definition is as follows: Spirituality exists wherever we struggle with the issues of how our lives fit into the greater scheme of things. This is true when our questions never give way to specific answers or give rise to specific practices such as prayer and meditation. We encounter spiritual issues every time we wonder where the universe comes from, why we are here, or what happens when we die. We also become spiritual when we become moved by values such as beauty, love, or creativity that seem to reveal a meaning or power beyond our visible world. An idea or practice is ‘spiritual’ when it reveals our personal desire to establish a felt-relationship with the deepest meanings of powers governing life.”

In Spiritualism, there is a fundamental belief in the continuation of life after the change called death as well as the personal responsibility for life’s circumstances.

With that said, in order to understand spirituality or spiritualism, you must first understand the human being and the ripple effects we create.

As human beings, we are energy in a physical body that creates energetic vibrations.

What allows your heart to pump blood throughout your body? Do you honestly know?

Think about it before you read on….

What actually triggers your heart to contract that enables it to pump blood throughout the human body to nourish every tissue and cell? Have you figured it out yet?

If not, that is ok. I will explain. Whether you call it God’s gift … the Universe’s Gift …Nature’s mastery…. you have two mini self generating electrical power plants in your heart called the SA node and AV node, otherwise known as the sinoatrial node and the atrial node. They self generate electrical impulses that stimulate the heart the contract and pump the blood throughout the human body. Now think about that. How amazing is that? You have a perfect natural machine like the engine in your car filtering and pumping the nutrient your body needs to stay alive. Have you ever wondered why we need two electrical paddles to stimulate the heart while jump starting the heart?

Everything we do, feel, see, hear, touch, happens due to an electrical impulse that triggered and sent to the brain for the interpretation of sight, sound, touch, etc.

When we understand the fundamental basis of our beings as energy and a one electrical conduction system, we can attune ourselves to be in vibrational alignment with the universe.
Remember I started off asking you about whether or not you like to skip stones? I am going to now explain why I asked that question.

 The Pond Analogy

Think dropping a pebble into the serene glasslike pond. What happens to the pebble? … It creates ripples.

Now what if your friend next to you drops a pebble into that same pond? It also creates a ripple.

What happens to your ripple? To their ripple? They eventually collide.

And depending on whose pebble that was dropped into the pond was larger will determine the magnitude and impact of the collision and whose ripple creates a greater effect. The vibrational alignment, just like sound can alter the tranquility of the water.

If our mind and body are as clear and smooth like glass on a lake, be careful what you toss in. Just like a pebble being tossed, you have the ability to create a small symmetrically balanced ripple effect with little disturbance to the overall lake. As it travels it magnifies in size the farther away it is from the original source but does so in a smooth fashion.

Now if you toss a boulder, the ripple can create what? An unbalanced volatile rocky big ripples in the lake that can take a much longer time for the lake to recover and restore itself to that quiet serene glass like appearance. So now these volatile ripples also magnify as it travels outward as well.

I challenge you to an experiment. Print this article out and keep with you when you do the experiment. Go out and toss the pebble into a lake. Watch what happens. Then toss a boulder into the lake and watch what happens. Then toss two pebbles similar in size and watch what happens. I encourage you to take notes on this experiment as to what you observe when you do this. I would be honored if you choose to write in the comments below your results and what you witnessed and what was revealed to you that you learned about yourself.

Just like the pebble or boulder, what you sent outward, goes out like ripples in the water and magnifies as it travels.

Your attitude – Creates ripples

Your body language – Creates ripples

Your actions and reactions – creates ripples

Your words – creates ripples

Your thoughts – Creates ripples

Your feelings – creates ripples

So be careful what ripples you allow in and be careful what ripples you put out or send out.

Are your ripples positive or negative?

Negative ripples can give you a feeling like your finger is stuck in an electrical outlet … a sense of being fried and exhausted that you feel you really cannot explain or do not know how to explain.

Positive ripples have more of a feeling of being in vibrational alignment with yourself and the universe … Like a free flowing balanced energy source.

If you are not in vibrational alignment, begin by building a sense of awareness.

What do I mean by that?

To build a sense of awareness, you need to become intimately aware of your inner self and your surroundings using all of your senses.

Understand you cannot change what you can not acknowledge so you must begin here.

When you begin to master the sense of awareness, you choose the vibrations you are sending out. By keeping your vibrations high, you begin to start to enjoy life and begin to understand that it is possible to achieve your goals that you have been struggling so hard to accomplish. You start to create a surge of positive energy affecting everything around you.

For everything to change in your life, it starts with the self. Just as in spiritualism, you must take responsibility for your own life. It is a matter of yin and yang and the natural laws.

If your vibrations are low or you are exhibiting negative ripples, an avalanche affect can occur causing you to tumble into lower forms of consciousness and inferior ways of thinking. In many cases, you may be subconsciously self-sabotaging everything good you strive in your life without even realizing you are doing it. Just stop and think about that for a moment and digest what that really means.

So if your life is filled with fear, anger, and negativity and you perpetually live in that environment, this will eventually lead to dis-ease of all areas in your mind, body, and spirit. Your life will continue to spiral down unless you make a conscious decision right here … right now to change. The past is the past and can breed depression. The future has not happened yet and can breed anxiety and stress. All you have is the now so just be happy.

If your life is surrounded by lower vibrations, meaning your environment, you are allowing yourself to have these negative lower vibrational ripples impact and collide with your energetic core and your life. As a result, you will eventually cease to see yourself in a self loving, self nurturing, and balanced way. Someone once told me that if you are told you “no good” for so long and it is drilled into you, you start to believe it. In abuse, they call that “gaslighting”.

By mastering the art of awareness, you can self-correct your patterns of thinking and behaviors. Hence changing the kind of ripple effect you are sending out and receiving.

As we think of ourselves and others, we send out vibrational ripples in frequencies. We must nurture our inner child with self love, appreciation and gratitude. By doing so, the ripples we create, send out are of… love, appreciation and gratitude.

Spirit is always around us, and with spirit’s guidance, you have the ability to create endless ripples with a positive impact in your life and the lives of others. The choice is yours to make.

So I will leave you with a few thoughts and questions to ponder.

What does spiritualism mean to you and how does spirituality fit in your life?

What ripples are you creating right now … during this very moment?

What thought just passed through your head? Were your thoughts loving, compassionate, nurturing, healing and positive vibrationally aligned? … Or not?

Begin with building a sense of awareness. Choose a path for a self discovery of your inner being and a journey to enlightenment. Connect with spirit for guidance and help along the journey. Keep your life filled with love and compassion. And remember the pebble in the pond and the impacts it creates.

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” ― Mother Teresa

How are you going to change the kind of ripples you are allowing to impact you as well as change the kind of ripples you send out?
