Establishing Yourself in the “Void”

I was watching a movie the other night and one of the characters proclaimed, “I don’t know what is wrong with me, I feel so empty.” In the story line she was in transition. Her life had a pending new decision which meant letting go of all that is for soon what will be. In the mean time, her life was void, empty, seemingly stuck. I nodded as I listened to her mostly complain and cry. Drama will be drama. I understood her statement though. I think we have all been there. In “the void”. The void is that place where we think is dark and empty. It seems that way when we are there. In truth, though, it’s a place filled with expectation and creation. Remember, God created from that which was void and made beautiful things. The void is a place of learning to let go of what was for what will be. It’s a place of utilizing our faith and imagination to create new things. Yes, it is also an exercise in …

What’s Your Problem?

Now there is a million dollar question, right? I guess I should entitle this post, “What Problem Are You Dealing With Now?” I can see your wheels turning. Maybe you are dealing with many problems. Welcome to my multi-tasking world! Let me interject some reality here. Everyone, I mean everyone, has problems! In fact, if you don’t have problems I would think you are an alien with some sort of super powers to overcome obstacles and leap tall buildings at a single bound. Bottom line, you can not escape them! Yes, I know, they make life a pain. Life is supposed to be a pain. In fact, life is supposed to be one pain after another. Life is like labor pains; problems and labor pains. Before you click off and proclaim me too negative, think about this. Without problems there is no reason to solve anything. Can you hear me in this? If there is no reason to solve anything then there is no way to grow, no need for intuitive insight, no reason to …

Handling Difficult People

No doubt we live in a world that is filled with so many diverse people and personalities. In all honesty, this is what makes life worth living and exploring. We are “about” relationship. Without others there is no true evolution of our souls or healing of our scars. Keeping this in mind, there is one real truth that tends to bring grace, mercy, and understanding to the difficult personality. Here it is. Are you ready? People act out of their own personal pain from the inside and they project it outward toward a person or situation that they feel is unfavorable. Usually it all comes out in anger or blame. Some people are consumed with their anger and resentment. Have you ever met the “perpetual walking bad mood”? They are difficult to say the least. The real truth is, the walking bad mood has deep scars that create a vacuum or blockage for anything that resembles peace and harmony in life. They appear to just project their bad mood outward but what they really are …

Are We Trying to Teach People to Transform Into the Image of God or the Image of Ourselves?

Recently, I found myself becoming very frustrated with others “teachings”. It seemed like no matter what I did it was WRONG in someone’s eyes. Bottom line, I know by now to do what I feel God says is right for me but the question of so many conflicted communications haunted me continually. I asked God, “How do we become as One with one another and also One with You if we have so many conflicting ideas?” The question perplexed me because there hardly seemed to be a way to even come to a happy medium on the subject.  I found myself entrapped in so many “don’ts”. Don’t wear this. Don’t say that. Don’t pray this way. Don’t preach as a woman. Don’t this and don’t that. I found myself in sorrow because it caused me to feel that there was no place I could possibly belong with so many RULES and don’ts. It was not until I sought God for the answer alone did I truly find my answer in this question. “Are we, as …

Love Trumps Rules

Have you ever heard the expression, “rules without relationship bring rebellion”? A person can try to enforce all the rules upon someone else but if there is no relationship all the rules in the world can not make someone love or obey. I can’t say why we get so caught up in rules in the Christian faith but it sure does not bring good relationships. Jesus’ way is the way of the Father’s love. His love is a love that covers even when we fail or make mistakes, and we all fail. Jesus came for the sick not the perfect. The irony is there is none who is perfect, so in the divine design he died for everyone. It’s our personal choice if we want to accept His ways or not. To be in Christ is to be in love. Honestly, who cares how a person prays as long as they do, or how a person dresses because it is God who dressed man and woman first in the garden of Eden. When someone opens …

Are You Living Outside of Yourself?

Do you find yourself continually affected by other people’s actions, attitudes, or things that happen to you? If you are, then you are not alone. We all tend to do this and for some reason make our lives harder than it has to be. Have you ever noticed if you walk into a room filled with people in a bad mood your mood tends to change to align with theirs? Or maybe your relationship partner will get to you by their actions or personality now and then. We all do affect one another’s lives but we are not meant to live outside of ourselves to the point where everyone and every other thing affects how we are or feel inside. For some reason, people tend to be like sheep. We follow others instead of being our own leader. Jesus referred to people as sheep a few times in His conversations. I certainly can see why. The hard thing about living in a way where we are always affected by others, is that we never really …

Christian Energy Healing: Emotional Energy Release

Energy is What Moves All Things. It’s Motion Energy is a part of God’s created universe and is a part of every living thing. The Bible tells us that there was nothing created that Jesus did not create from the beginning. Energy describes motion of what God has created.  Thousands of years ago people discovered the healing properties of moving energy in the human body. This process also can facilitate emotional release and therefore emotional healing. Our bodies were created to work as one unit; body, mind, spirit/soul. One part of us out of balance can create problems in other parts of us and keep us out of balance. A body that achieves more balance is a healthier, happier, body and therefore person. ​Much to the error in belief of many in the Christian faith, energy healing is not of the occult, nor is it demonic. It is only that, if it is used in that manor. In fact, there is no religion or belief system that is attached to energy healing accept that energy exists and God created it …
