Spring 2012 – Wow, how did I get here?

Blessings to you! It has been so long since my last blog. My life has completely changed and my spiritual awareness has magnified itself into all areas of my life. I have faced storms and triumphed; I have watched God bless my very existence with a new addition to my family. I have witnessed the growth of my “Self”, my loved ones and my pets.

I have opened myself to new experiences and surrendered my daily awareness to living completely in the Now. I have witnessed beginnings and endings only to become aware again of my purpose. To Inspire.

It’s time, I am ready to begin again; it’s Spring!

It’s time to generate and express the love that I Am, Again.

What are Spiritual Readings?

I am often asked what is a “Spiritual” reading, vs a regular reading. A Spiritual reading is based on the idea that we are ALL God’s Beloved’s and we sometimes need help in deciphering the internal messages that we receive. The person doing the reading strives to connect the personal path of your life with your divine purpose.

My readings are based on “Spirit”. What I mean by “Spirit” is, the energy that beats our hearts, the energy that we were created with;( the stuff God used to make us), the Energy that fuels our bodies, the energy that defines us. But what is Energy?

“Concerning MATTER, we have been all WRONG. What we have called matter is ENERGY, whose vibration has been so LOWERED as to be perceptible to the senses. There is NO matter.”
~ Albert Einstein ~

The Human Energy Field appears to exist in more that three dimensions. It  is a luminous body that surrounds and interpenetrates the physical body, emitting it’s own characteristic radiation which is usually called the “Aura”.

The Human Aura is that part of the Universal Energy Field associated with the human body. The state of “Ki” in your system relates to the body-mind harmony or disharmony you experience in your life. It’s the same energy that is inherent in you and I and it energizes us and our movements. This energy lives on after our physical body no longer lives and this energy individualizes us.

We all emit this energy, and when you are sensitive to this energy, you “feel” others by their energy fields and can relate to what you are feeling through your emotions. This is how a reading is done; we are “Reading your energy field” through our intuition.  Where thought goes, energy flows. Every thought you think creates an impression that lodges itself in your energy field. These are “read” to determine your state of mind and to expand your awareness of your “power” in the situation. (Some readers will offer to “remove” situations or change what is going on in your life, for a fee. RUN, don’t walk from them as you are the master of your own ship.)

All Beings are created equal and as a birth right, we are given the power of choice; called Free Will. No one can live your life for you or make any decisions about your life for you. If they are honorable, they will not try.

There is nothing fearful in a spiritual reading, no hocus pokus or magic is used, nothing out of the ordinary occurs. It is like sitting down and having a discussion with an old and trusted friend about the major concerns of your life, how these same concerns came to be and the options available to you to bring more joy into your life! This conversation is a little lop-sided in my readings because I ask that the recipient of the reading to refrain from commenting until I finish speaking. The reason for this, is that the recipient needs to view their life from a different more loving  perspective. It’s like thinking outside of the box. When you change your perspective, you most often change the outcome of the situation to a more balanced and loving outcome.

So in conclusion, A reading is like sitting down for a chat with a friend. It is learning tool, on your spiritual path.

Psychic – Child of God

Many people ask me what it’s like being psychic and I am stumped when I try to answer them. I don’t consider myself to be any different than anyone else, nor did I even acknowledge this “ability” as the “gift” that some people have told me that it is. I consider it a “calling”; it is something that has been with me since I was born. You see, I learned long ago that this is not my world, or yours; it belongs to The Supreme Being of Energy that made it, the moon, stars, and everything else. I am only following; surrendering to my path, my calling.
I never really remembered my childhood until I treated myself to “Life Coaching” and delved into my own shadow side. I remembered that as a child I loved nature; loved being outside. I had such a vivid imagination that I imagined worlds of fairies, elves and animal companions who always accompanied me on my adventures through the wilds of my back yard. Walt Disney had nothing on me; I could day dream for hours about these worlds, and I did. I remember laying in my bed at night, around 5 yrs old and seeing people outside my bedroom window. Not real people, but shadows. I was never afraid, but I always got up and stared outside, wondering why no one was there. My sister who slept in the bed with me never saw them. She was very practical and being 3 years older than I, found me quite annoying.
I was raised in the church. My mother was Baptist and my father was catholic, and I experienced and was taught both religions while growing up. My first profound experience was at St Thomas Episcopal Church, W. Philadelphia, PA; Father Anderson. It was carefully explained to me that I could not attend the catholic church because my father’s family had broken off relations and relocated to what was called “High Episcopal”, where the service was conducted in Latin. At 5 years old I was awed by the pomp and ceremony used in their expression of worship. I was in love with God and how he was worshiped. Father Anderson was my knight in shining armor, not because of his position, but because his aura shined like the sun when he did his prayers. I felt the angel’s wings of love around us as we repeated our verses after Father Anderson. It was my honor to kneel and cross myself when I entered and left this wonderful place that taught me how much my heart could fill up when worshiping “God”.
When I was around 7 years old (in around 1953 or 1954) I remember this vivid dream that stayed with me throughout my life. My mind always went back to this dream trying to figure it out; I realized later that it was not a memory that other people had or admitted to. I dreamed I was taken on this “ship” and shown around by people dressed in white. They had helmets on, much like the astronauts use now, but the seemed to communicate with me without words. They were adults, but very kind to me; they seemed to command authority as they talked to me and showed me around the circular ship. There were many doors to other compartments and as we went around to the many levels, I noticed each level had many doors and as they opened each door, there was a lesson to be learned. I trusted without question as they seemed so familiar. I never questioned the experience until much later in life realizing that in 1953 a “space ship” was unheard of in my world. Whoever they were, they have been with me though out my life, still teaching me. I never asked their names, I felt I knew them and it was not necessary.
I also remember being very conscious of something inside of me, with me but separate from me; so I talked to it. When I reached 9 yrs old, it answered me back. It was gentle, commanding and very much like a loving father. I knew it was not me because “Its” words vibrated throughout my being. It felt like a tight cap being pulled off my head and afterwards, I felt free and I experienced the openness of the energy around me. I knew that this was my secret friend and I never felt the urge to share this with anyone. It was my comfort.

I was quite the troublesome child, always pushing the rules and not paying much attention to the consequences. During this time, I continued talking to “It” and it became “my friend and “moral consciousness” and when I made poor choices or went against my mother’s rules it chastised me, more than my mother did. Then my years of life’s lessons arrived. I quickly learned that I could not go against Divine law; even as a child, every time I stole, or lied I saw the consequences immediately. Little by little, into adulthood this was magnified and little by little, I learned what “truth” is. I learned instinctively to look into the eyes to discover the soul; to follow my feelings, to go within to that voice whenever I had a dilemma or question. To say that I was sensitive is an understatement. I cried for everything. Even if I saw another person crying, I cried with them. In my early youth, I was wild and adventurous trying everything my peers said was cool. Thank goodness; during the wild period, there was this internal companion who kept me from harm’s way.

During my child bearing years the “voice” faded into the background; for a good 10 years. My time was spent going to every physic my mother came in contact with. They kept telling me that I would “do what they did”; I laughed in their face! Not me…… I continued to read the books my favorite psychic, Jean Quinn suggested and I learned everything I could about angels and God and direct communication with God, as they called it. I loved Jean Quinn so much. She opened my world to guides, guardian angels, masters and the idea of teachings design to get you “closer to God”. That was my motivation. Who or What is God? In retrospect, there was a force driving me. All during my life the “occult” as it was called then in the nineteen sixties fascinated me. At that time you couldn’t even find books on the subject at local book stores, and if you did, the selection was so small that it took up less than half a shelf. It was something that was done in “secret;” you couldn’t tell people what you were reading or studying; they would talk about you. Baptist’s did not believe in the occult. What happened was that people found me, people who somehow let their guard down enough to validate themselves and me by letting me know that they “believed the secret teachings” too and they then turned you on to their books, practices and that’s how you found out where to get information.

I was driven to learn. I studied Judaism, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, and every other primitive religion or practice that I could find. I remember finding myself in the rare book section of New York’s Public library, on 5th Avenue doing research on religion and the occult. I joined “Astara” Whose teachings of the occult matched my belief that we can heal each other as Jesus did, and I learned healing with the “White Light of the Christ” in my twenties. I knew that I was to become a healer but I didn’t know what a healer did. I even studied and received my minister’s license at the Blessed Events Spiritual Church, in Long Island NY. My teacher Lillian Brown taught me the wonderful world of herbs. In the 1980’s, she was the instrument for which I started doing “readings”; up until that point I didn’t even entertain the thought that I could. I never consciously “chose “ this path, but everything in my Being led me to where I am.
We are all just becoming aware of the “laws of the Universe” and as I watch the world awaken to the fact that: this time, this event, this awakening has been planned by the Universe since the beginning of time. We are all; each one of us exactly where we are supposed to be and are “opening” our consciousness to embrace the unseen powers that control us. Again, in retrospect, and through my various studies, I have learned that we are God’s children and all of us follow a path, willingly chosen by us to lead us into the perfection that we are. There are those who have walked this path before us and have graciously given us guidepost, or “tools’ to help us along our path. And I humbly offer this information to you on your path. Those fellow “children of God” help me give my consultations and each reading done is accompanied by that person’s guides and guardian angels to insure accuracy. I am grateful for their companionship. With God, anything is possible.
I look forward to offering my insight and readings to you on my web page: Sweet, Simple Inspirations.com .
So please, take the time to  visit us after June 1, 2011

Follow up to Last week’s Post:

World Peace Card Meditations
Wednesday, May 18, 7:30pm
(based on local time in your time zone)

Future Dates
Wednesday, June 15, July 13, August 17 at 7:30pm

You are invited to take part in the next World Peace Card Meditations. Please mark your calendar and forward this email to all your friends.

Thanks for Your Help!

Because so many of you forwarded this email to your friends, there have been almost 235,000 downloads of the World Peace Cards. This is a tremendous increase in the number of people using the cards. So far the total number of World Peace Card sets downloaded, received from our free offer and from our magazine has been nearly 250,000! I hope you have been using your peace cards as their use brings blessings to the world as well as to you.

The next World Peace Card group meditation has been scheduled for Wednesday, May 18 at 7:30pm. This is local time in your time zone. This method has been chosen because of the special effect it produces. As people meditate in each successive time zone the energy builds like a wave which gets stronger and stronger as it circles the planet. Because of the higher dimensional nature of consciousness, the energy of peace will be transmitted for a full 24 hours and continue long after this.

Reports from those who took part in the previous meditations indicate many had powerful spiritual experiences. As they united with those taking part in the meditation a feeling of peace developed within that stayed with each for a long time. Some saw beautiful golden light surrounding the planet and others felt that a web of fear was dissipating and being replaced with trust in others and for our future.

All those who have received the cards are being asked to meditate on world peace at this time. By taking part in this group meditation, you’ll be joining thousands of people who will be using the cards to bring peace to the world. By joining together, the affect we have will be greatly multiplied. This powerful experience and will help shift the vibration of our wonderful planet into a higher state of consciousness. As you use the cards to meditate on world peace, you will be a beacon through which peace will spread around the planet which will have a positive uplifting effect on all people.

Please set aside this time to meditate with the cards. The suggested meditation period is 15 minutes, but of course you can meditate longer if you’d like to. The technique I’d like you to use is based on allowing yourself to be a beacon of peace. The World Peace Cards hold the vibration of the World Peace Grids which have been placed at spiritually significant locations and are relay stations for higher consciousness. By simply opening to their energy, you’ll become a channel for their love and peace which will flow through you to all the people on Earth. To do this, hold the cards in your hands or place them in front of you. Then simply meditate on peace.

We are entering a new era. Our entire planet including all the people and living things are moving into a place where it will be much easier to solve our problems and to create peace, prosperity and happiness for everyone. The World Peace Card meditation will quicken this process, making it easier for people to experience this new quality of higher consciousness and will provide great benefit for all people. Since this benefit will be flowing through you out to everyone on the planet, you’ll be blessed by this experience as well.

Many have received the cards in the mail or in the Reiki News Magazine while others have downloaded them from our web site. If you would like additional copies of the cards, please download them using this link and print as many copies as you can use. Please feel free to give them to your friends. Also, forward this email to anyone you feel would like to take part in the meditation.

This Spring: The seeds for growing greatness in you….
1. Move to create a brain-body groove, to support growth of your brain, mind and body.
2. Integrate or disintegrate. Get out in nature and use your “Senses”, to grow in gratitude and spirit.
3. Avoid your comfort zone, to encourage growth in your brain and healing in your heart.
4. Life the wisdom that is your life, to express your gifts, beauty, power and love.

Reiki Always Heals…..

I remember when I first discovered Reiki and received my first attunement in 2000, ten years ago. After being attuned, I Reiki’d people, places and things, sending healing energy wherever my thoughts carried me. I went Reiki wild! At that time, I wasn’t familiar with the fact that as you Reiki others, you also receive Reiki, leaving you feeling refreshed, energized and calm. I only knew that it felt so good to do it.
As I progressed and “experienced” the energy of Reiki in my body, I found that whenever I hurt myself, my hands would “activate” and I would feel the flow of Reiki. As I became more perceptive, I noticed that whenever I encountered people who were ill, my hands again activated. My Reiki teacher’s mantra echo’s in my head; “Let your hands lead you; they will automatically know where the healing is needed most”. When you let your hands guide you, and not the symptoms being experienced a healing occurs.
I then learned that our body works in harmony; the organs, muscles, bones all work together, and when there are symptoms experienced as a headache, my hands would go to the heart area (chakra) to open up the flow of compassion thereby relieving the headache. Amazing stuff to me; Reiki has a consciousness, a self directing consciousness at that.
Reiki also can be used to heal the Earth. The: http://www.reiki.org/GlobalHealing website does just that.

World Peace Crystal Grid
Placed at the North and South Pole
and Jerusalem

The International Center for Reiki Training

The World Peace Crystal Grid program is a way for Reiki practitioners to promote peace on earth. Peace grids have been placed at the North and South Poles of the earth as well as in old Jerusalem. Their design allow Reiki to be sent to them and stored like a battery which is then made available to promote peace on earth. Their placement at the magnetic poles of the earth takes advantage of this tremendous energy source that also functions like the crown and root chakras of the planet. The Reiki energy emanating from the Peace grids is carried by the magnetic field around the planet to heal and balance the earth’s aura. The reservoir of healing energy it holds is available to empower all those working toward world healing and peace.

The World Peace Crystal Grids were placed at North Pole on May 3, 1997 at the South Pole on December 17, 1999, and in Jerusalem in October, 2004. This was a dream come true and each was an exciting adventure.
This set of peace cards includes pictures of each of the World Peace Grids taken as they lay in place at their respective locations, the World Peace Pendant and instructions. Their use brings peace to the world and into your personal life. They are offered to you completely free of charge.”

 You might want to check the website to find out how to use the Grids in your practice. I am attaching the Grids at the end of this blog, See if you can feel the Reiki Energy:
