That’s not good enough!

Have you ever said or thought phrases like, “That’s not good enough?”
While there are people who can easily shove these occasional thoughts aside, there are others who are holding onto an underlying belief that they’re not enough.
When I was in grade school and the teacher would ask me a question, I would claim that I didn’t know the answer even when I did. I was afraid to speak up in class because my answers might not be good enough. There were times when I felt that I needed to minimize my success and downplay my accomplishments because I wanted people to like me. Otherwise, I just wasn’t good enough. These are just some examples of how this belief can show up for us in our lives.
However, this does not have to be the case for any of us. First of all, see this belief for the lie that it is.
After all, if we are infinite spiritual beings who happen to be residing in human bodies at the moment, how can we truly be anything less than enough? Also, it can be helpful to explore the reasons for adopting these beliefs. During this process, I encourage you to seek support in order to deal with the strong feelings that may come up. While I still have this belief popping up from time to time, I try to keep things in perspective and have lots of compassion for myself. Sometimes, this is the best that we can do.

needs, wants, and mediumship

When clients visit a medium, they’re likely to come with a certain set of expectations. Often times, clients expect to receive a message from a specific person.
However, mediums cannot guarantee that a specific spirit will communicate during the reading. There may be several reasons why this can happen.
I believe that clients are likely to receive messages from loved ones who need to come through. This means that clients may be more likely to hear from those people first. I believe that the spirit world knows what each of us needs on the soul level. In other words, clients will get what they need before getting what they want from a reading.
However, the spirit world has a way of delivering the perfect message at the perfect time. I understand that this can be extremely frustrating. After my father passed away, I wanted to hear from him. At the time, I attended a local spiritualist church, and I would silently ask my father to bring a message through one of the mediums.
For years, I heard nothing from my father. When I had worked through the worst of my grief, he came through.
Now, I understand that I needed to do some serious inner work before I was ready to hear from my father. I believe that everything happens in its own time. If you’re in a similar situation to what I just described, it does not mean that your deceased family member has stopped loving you. In fact, your departed loved ones love you enough to give you exactly what you need at the right time, and never before then.

how to beat the blues during life transitions

Life transitions are inevitable, and they can sometimes bring a case of the blues with them. Here are some suggestions that have helped me to navigate these times.
First, it is important to remember that these situations are only temporary, and things are likely to get better. You may have to remind yourself of this several times a day.
Also, take time to engage in your favorite activities in order to bring more joy into your life. Don’t forget to take some time to laugh. It may feel forced at first, but just go with it.
Another thing that helps me during these times involves engaging in my spiritual practices. For example, I like to use my daily walks as meditations. During these walking meditations, my thinking mind is out of the way. This allows room for insights, solutions, and a fresh perspective.
Also, make sure you get plenty of rest, even if that means sneaking a power nap into your day.
Don’t forget that it is okay to let yourself cry sometimes. It is healthy to allow yourself to express and release pent-up feelingsFinally, and most importantly, ask for support when you need it.

insight for today

During meditation, I received some guidance that I wanted to share, and I hope it is beneficial to you in some way. Focus on joy and success rather than fear and stress.
Yes, I can already hear some people telling me that this is easier said than done. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. Ask yourself these two questions:
How can I bring more joy into my life? How would my life change if I focused on joy and success for just five minutes each day?
If you don’t feel able to do this right now, that’s okay. Alternatively, you may want to start by asking yourself what is keeping you from allowing more joy and greater success into your life. Remember that you always have a choice when it comes to how you want to experience life. You owe it to yourself to choose a life of joy and success. Yes, it is truthat you may have days when nothing seems to go your way, but you can still choose your reaction to those experiences.

finding empowering solutions

While I cannot offer specific solutions to our political situation, I can offer my perspective. I will let you, the reader, decide what to do with this information.
As I see it, there are three ways to approach our political situation. There is the passive approach, where some may claim that certain issues do not affect them. However, this approach can be dangerous. Since we are all a part of the whole and we cannot be separated from one another or from God, these issues definitely affect each and everyone of us.
We can also approach our current political situation by becoming aggressive and disrespect one another. However, this approach is likely to inflame the situation and affect relationships.
However, why not explore a more empowering perspective? As someone who is invested in her own spiritual development, I cannot deny the power of spiritual practice. I also believe that there are peaceful ways to support a cause. If I were to come up with an empowering solution, it would include spiritual practice and supporting causes in a way that is respectful. Remember that if we want a peaceful world where our beliefs are respected, it starts with each and every one of us.

how to turn frustration into something useful

Have you ever been in a situation which caused you to become frustrated? I’ve been there, too, and it is not fun at all!
There’s good news, though. Our frustration can be turned into something useful. In order to explain this concept, I will give you an example from my own life.When I started my business, I couldn’t help but notice that there are certain resources that aren’t accessible to those of us who are blind or visually impaired. I have two choices: I could complain and become frustrated, or I can turn my frustration into an opportunity to learn to be more flexible and find more accessible alternatives.
However, you do not need to be blind or own a business to turn your frustration into something positive and much more productive. For example, let’s say that you are sitting in traffic, and you are going to be late for an appointment. In fact, there is so much traffic that you have to take another route altogether if you want to make it at all. Doesn’t that just frustrate the pants off of you?
Now, let’s look at your situation from another perspective. You were so frustrated by the traffic that you chose another route. Now, you just learned a whole new route that could save you time and money in the future. Isn’t that more exciting than remaining frustrated?

question series pt 1: Getting Started as a Psychic, Medium, or Healer

From time to time, I receive questions from clients as well as people who are interested in my work as a psychic medium. These questions range from how I operate my business as someone who is blind to how I receive information during a reading.
I will continue to explore spiritual and self-help topics on my blog, but I thought that it would be helpful to address these questions. Chances are high that some of you had them, too.Today, I’m going to try to answer one of these questions.
Question. How can I become a psychic, medium, or spiritual healer?
Answer. First of all, if you have been having consistent thoughts about this for a while, that is most likely your intuition telling you to go for it! Secondly, and most importantly, why do you want to be a psychic, medium, or healer?
This is important because like attracts like. If your intention is service, you are on the right track. However, if you want to be a psychic, medium, or healer because it seems like an interesting way to spend a Saturday afternoon, this may not be the right path for you. Also, if you want to be a psychic, medium, or healer in order to acquire fame and fortune, you may want to take some more time to think through your decision.
At any point during this process, it is helpful to do your research. Talk to a reputable psychic, medium, or healer who can guide you in the right direction. There are also several books, articles, and videos on these subjects. Then, if you’ve decided that this is something that you really want, seek out a spiritualist church or metaphysical center. I believe that anyone who is sincere and dedicated can develop as a psychic, medium, and/or healer. Lastly, be prepared to begin or continue your own self-work. Remember that in order to help others, you must learn to help yourself.
If you need help with this process, don’t be afraid to ask a trusted friend, spiritual teacher, therapist, or coach.
