Today is a strange day, and not just weather wise. I’d need another page just to chat about that. Seriously though. I’ve been seeing videos of fighting, a woman verbally attacking another woman just because she’s not white. In fact, that same woman was in another video being nasty to a black man.

The comments on Twitter are normally pretty disgusting, but lately… especially today…what’s going on?!?

A blue-checked person on Twitter was calling other people out on their beliefs and behaviour…by calling them names and making fun of them.

Then my cats are fighting, the baby geese are at it.

Enough already. Seriously. Enough.

I’m tired of all the hatred. It’s been amplifying steadily all week. And now I see it in my happy place.

It’s time for love. Only love. You can’t fight hate with hate. No you can’t. Only love can vanquish hate. Only light can eradicate dark. Love is light. Light is love.

I will look for love. I will search out the light. I will amplify the light and love. I will be a beacon of light.

There is more light and love in this world than there is darkness and hate.

There are more good people than not. I will look for the good.

Tails are forming!

Faith Believes Nor Questions How

Faith.

For some reason I was blessed with a deep faith in God and Jesus. I have a close connection with the spirit world, the ascended masters and the angelic realm. Since I was a child I’ve had this connection. It’s something that’s always been there and it’s something I don’t know how to describe except to say it’s a knowing. I just know he exists.

It’s true I was raised in an Irish Catholic family, which would make you assume that’s where my deep faith comes from. Actually it doesn’t. Being Catholic gave me the tools I needed to learn and develop, but my foundation was already laid before I came into this world.

There was a very short time when I doubted that God existed. I was taking a mandatory philosophy class in college and suddenly a whole new world was opened up to me that not only shook my Catholic upbringing but was cracking my foundation as well. It was a dark and lonely road I needed to travel, the only way I would be able to discover my own personal beliefs away from the influence of the church and my parents.

I came to the light at the end of the dark road and was comforted that I was never really alone on my journey, Jesus and my guardian angels were with me the entire time, providing comfort and love, yet giving me the space I needed.

Although my beliefs about organized religion have changed, my belief in God has not. In my darkest hour, I am not alone. I feel love. I feel comforted.

I don’t know how people who don’t believe in God – or a higher power – get through difficult times. What do they hold onto? Do they really believe they walk alone?

They ask me how I know God exists. What proof do I have? I don’t need proof. I know, deep down inside of me, that he is real. I don’t know specifics, but I know his love.

They say: If there was a God why is there so much hate, loneliness, sickness and war? Hate, loneliness, sickness and war come from humans, not from God. I believe people learn compassion, forgiveness, healing and love from these things. When terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Centers, the phone calls made weren’t about hate; they were about love, people reaching out to tell their families they love them. After the buildings collapsed, people of all colours, races, and nationalities came together to help. It was a time of bonding, of love, and of healing.

In times of distress comes hope; in times of loss comes comfort; in times of sickness comes healing. God is love. It’s all he knows. Only love is real. When you’re confronted with something other than love, look closely at it and find the truth behind the action. Perhaps someone is acting out because of fear? loneliness? hopelessness?

How do I know God is real? Witnessing the miracle of child birth; watching nature unfold: trees budding, grass growing, flowers blooming, birds flying to and fro, butterflies migrating…

I am comforted in knowing that I am surrounded by benevolent beings that are here to help me, console and comfort me, and to guide me. I am blessed to believe in a higher power – for me that higher power is God and this belief helps me through the dark times.

I know I never walk alone.

Competition

A couple of years ago I decided to put myself out there and what better way than joining the psychic fair circuit. I was dedicated to deepening my connection with spirit; developing and fine-tuning my skills as a medium; and connecting with like-minded people.

I was excited, nervous and had no idea what to expect so I just dived in and hoped for the best.

When I reflect on my experiences that year only one thing stands out and that’s “competition”. I was surprised at how competitive this field is. I presume – because we’re all light workers who’s main objective on earth is to shine light and love everywhere we go – that events would be filled with peace, love and a sense of community and cooperation. However, that was not the case. With each fair I attended my energy – and positive expectations of the psychic community – dropped lower and lower.

I don’t get the whole competition thing. For one thing, we’re all different – our gifts and talents are very different – so comparing ourselves to other is a recipe for disaster. I truly believe we’re all needed in our own way and for our own talents and there is enough for all of us. Enough clients, enough studio space, enough money, enough of whatever we need.

We are all here to support each other on this amazing journey called life.

Do me a favour? The next time you’re feeling competitive remember that we’re all in this together. We’re all here to support each other on this amazing journey called life. There is a reason there are so many spiritual teachers today: there is someone for everyone. While Jesus may not be for you, but Budda is that doesn’t mean Jesus isn’t good at what he does. Perhaps you’re drawn to Doreen Virtue but not Sylvia Browne, that doesn’t mean Sylvia isn’t good at what she does. Do you see what I’m getting at? If there was only one spiritual teacher for all of us, then there would be a gaping hole in how we learn.

Trust where you are

Trust where you are – right now at this very moment –  is exactly where you’re meant to be. You are needed; your gifts are needed; your talents are needed. So, be the light you are and shine it bright for all to see!

In light and love,

Wanda

A side note: Not everyone who had booths at the fairs was in it for the money or had a competitive spirit. I want to ensure you that I met some amazing light workers at the psychic fairs who were there to shine and share their light with others. It was a positive experience in that I met and connected with some truly amazing people.

Faith

Faith is believing what you can’t see. Faith goes hand in hand with trust, peace, and freedom. To be truly free and have peace is to trust and have FAITH that God is taking care of you and you are exactly where you’re meant to be right now. The exact size, shape, job, relationship, situation…

To have full faith is akin to being a child and believing you are being taken care of.

Remember that feeling as a kid, you had no worries or cares. You knew your parents were taking care of you and you felt safe and loved. That’s where we need to go now, as adults. Have child-like innocence, once again. Have faith that God is taking care of everything and we’re free to feel safe and loved again.

Change comes from chaos.

It’s not easy, especially when we’re being bombarded by news of a declining economy and a recession looming above us, like a huge dark cloud. But change always comes from chaos. So, we have to go through some conflict, some chaos, some unsteady times, to come out the other side to change. Change is always a good thing. Keeps us fresh and growing. What good could possibly come from thousands of people loosing their jobs? Losing their homes? Well, for starters, people will slow down. Hopefully take time to look at their life, where they’ve been, where they are now and where they would like to be. They’ll see what’s truly important. Working long hours to make partner or get the corner office or make another $50,000 a year, will suddenly seem less important than making their son’s baseball game, watching their daughter’s ballet recital, eating supper with their family, spending quality time with their family, spending time with their spouse, getting to know and rekindle their relationship with their loved ones.

Remember the Mayan calendar and 2012. In order for us to achieve that new consciousness, we need to go through a lot of changes. They way we do business, the type of businesses we’re running. It’s all going to change. There will be more and more people working for themselves, being their own bosses, setting their own timelines. You’ll most likely notice a lot more “Mom and Pop” shops popping up and a lot less “box-type” stores.

Just for today…feel like a kid again. Sit on a swing, eat some cotton candy!

So try, just for today, to feel like a kid again. Go for a run in the park. Sit on a swing, eat some cotton candy! Do something fun and impulsive. Then take a moment to thank God for who you are and where you are. And thank him for making you feel so safe and loved. Then feel safe and loved! And have faith that everything is OK in your world.

I’m heading to Disney World in Orlando today. I’ve never been and I figure it’s high time. I feel like a little kid inside, excited about meeting Mickey Mouse and my favorite, Pluto! Of riding on all the amazing rides. Of feeling like a kid again and letting go of all the adult worries that drag us down! I can’t wait!
