This was written by Jack Clarke and is an amazing description of what it means to be a “New Ager”
What do you think?
For me personally, this really encompasses the beliefs & practices I tend to live my life by…..
What is New Age, Anyway?
It’s people taking conscious responsibility for their own lives, not blaming others for their problems.
It’s people who deliberately decide to learn and grow.
It’s people that don’t have to be right, except for themselves.
It’s people seeing problems as lessons, perhaps in a long series of lives and lessons.
It’s people who believe we are what we think we are, and can change ourselves by changing our thinking.
It’s people that feel they can change the world by changing themselves, not by trying to change others.
It’s people who search for strength from the universe by going inside themselves.
It’s people that recognize love doesn’t have to have conditions attached.
It’s people loving and knowing themselves in order to better know and love others.
It’s people who see others as not better than or less than, but rather different than, themselves, yet part of the same whole.
It’s people that choose their own path rather than follow dogma.
It’s people honouring your right to your own path, not theirs.
It’s people who realize that now is all we have, since yesterday is just a thought and so is tomorrow.
It’s people interested in owning themselves rather than things.
It’s people who see joy in life rather than pain, having experienced enough pain already.
It’s people curious about extra sensory perception and all it implies.
It’s people in all walks of life, from business persons to flower essence healers, psychologists to UFO investigators.
New Age is not a new religion with a hierarchy of priests and rituals, seeking converts, though some new agers choose some ritual.
New Age is not often gloom and doom, though many are concerned about ecology, the economy and other forces that affect our world.
New Age is not a movement based on guilt, anger, fear or hurt; it is a journey toward the love that is God.
New age is not allegiance to one master; it is learning from many masters in the quest for the oneness of God.
New age could not become a cult because of what is said above.
New Age is not just humans doing, it is humans being.
I’ve been having such amazing sessions with so many new people lately it has inspired me to create some new readings/healings and expand my work. Here is one I’ve just finished practicing & developing.
Aura, Energy & Chakra Reading/Mini-Healing:
This is an email healing/reading geared towards educating & healing your body, mind and soul. I combine some of the major principles & techniques used in Theta Healing (& other forms of energy work) to clear your energy of any negative entities & energies that do not belong in your space & may be affecting you physically &/or emotionally. As a Theta Healer & medical intuitive, I do an overall scan of your body to see what areas may be coming up as problematic . After checking in with you & getting your permission, I drain negative and stuck energy from your body while replacing every cell with unconditional love. As part of the healing I balance and align your Chakras and also read your Aura. When I’m done with this healing you will receive a report detailing the work I did on your body and energy as well as a short reading of your Aura & your Energy as a whole.
So this is like a mini Theta Healing Session & general reading of you aimed to make you feel better emotionally, physically and mentally while also giving you insight as to what is going on inside and around you energetically.
How it Works:
In an email, briefly describe how you currently feel and have been feeling physically, emotionally and mentally. Are their any major aches or pains you are feeling? Where? Are you going through a difficult time emotionally or are you under more stress than usual? Let me know what you are conscious of as being imbalanced or off.
I will do a scan of you and see what comes up as problematic or imbalanced & do the healing described above. I will see more into issues or problems maybe you are not conscious of that are affecting your life. I will also do an overall read on you and the vibrations your body are giving off in your Aura and energy field and after I am done send a report/reading outlining what I did and describing what I saw, felt & sensed during your session.
Until I get the button set up you can either send 65$ via Paypal’s “send money” option to firstname.lastname@example.org OR
Book it through my website choosing the 30 minute reading and adding a 5$ tip at checkout where prompted.
If there was ever a time to watch your dreams manifest, the time is now!
Change is HERE and it is INEVITABLE….With two eclipses this week energy is accelerated & transforming in every persons life.You can dictate what changes and how it changes, but first you have to recognize what needs to be changed and what is not working for you.
This can be very difficult & is often the reason people live in unhappy situations. By admitting whats not working for you it is harder to lie to yourself to get through the day. At some point just making it through the day in as little emotional pain as possible became being satisfied or even being happy.
Acknowledging one area of your life needs to change can be harder if you don’t understand your role in your life & guiding change.
Part of understanding your life is understanding you from every angle begins with accepting who you are & asserting tiyr beereleasing what you do or dont want. This often begins with shedding burdens placed on you by others from the past & communicating your feelings to someone else. When was the last time you were able to just talk and talk and talk to someone about your deepest fears, secrets, hopes and desires?
For many its hard to ever examine our feelings because the people we confide in have some sort of opinion or their lives are affected by your decisions. Your friends may subconsciously be afraid of you changing because that could mean they change too.
What if by making change work for you, you inspired others to seek happiness too?
One person being there for another with no judgement, no alterior motive & no intentions other than to support is extremely theraputic and healing.
As a Clairvoyant, Theta Healer & trained counselor, I can help you heal from the past while creating your best future.
I can help be the catalyst for making your dreams come true as soon as tomorrow.
Here are a few specials I am having in honor of Change, New Beginnings & Focusing on yourself for once!
The lunar eclipse last night is the perfect catalyst for change just because the moon is so closely tied to womens bodies, emotions & nature.
So I am offering longer readings for half the price in order to give you the time to work on yourself at a cheaper price,
Recognizing and Communicating with Angels
How are you all? How did you’re manifesting go? I got some amazing emails from some of you who were offered new jobs–met boyfriends or found money within days of my post–and everyone had the same story about how “out of the blue” the phone call about the job was & how perfect yet odd the situation that came to them was. I was thrilled–and reminded to do manifesting for myself –I get so busy I forget to do it but I’m the one talking about how great it is! It can work for you positively or negatively–whatever you are vibrating–you will receive.
So anyways-this month I wanted to talk about Angels.
Angels are a topic I love but haven’t always known much about or done much work with. I have been reading up on Angels and thought I’d share some information on Angels that I not only found to be interesting but-but also believable-as this type of information is usually greeted with skepticism…Its information I could verify for myself as being true or making sense–and I thought maybe it would resonate with you too.
I have seen some things in my house lately that made me start thinking about angels…We used to joke that we have a ghost-a nice ghost-who seems to be here to- misplace my boyfriends things (angel with a sense of humor-it is funny to watch him searching) or to swing in Miles’s swing/sit on the couch and/or take items from the center of a table that are still and make them fly off and land in various places. We would comment on our nice ghost until I realized–maybe its an angel? A somewhat new duplex in San Diego just doesn’t scream “ghost” to me-and there is nothing scary about this presence….An Angel willnever feel creepy–while a ghost may.
Then I remembered how I would go see my old spiritual counsellor Dorothy-she would talk about how when I came over the room was filled with spirit guides, angels and animals. She would point to the open seat next to me on the couch–and say– “Elisabeth-see how that cushion is indented? Its because Angel ” ” is sitting next to you–” or her cat would freak out and she would mention how many beings were in the room. Ummmmm to be honest—I thought she was either full of it–off her rocker–or trying to make me feel good about myself at the time…..But now I find myself recalling things she said and finding it to correspond to other information I’m learning about Angels or to just be something I ignored then but seems significant now.
S0-what are some signs of Angels being around? Well we all have Angels & Spirit Guides that are there with us while we live our lives. Sometimes we have more-if we invoke them or ask for their help. An important lesson in working with Angels & asking for divine guidance is that Angels will not help you or assist you unless you ask for it-its considered meddling otherwise, unless it is a near death experience and then there is a different way of letting them assist you. So-if you want to know more about your angels or want their help with a certain problem-make sure you let them know you WANT their help! I was stunned when I read this–Whoops~ I assumed they just “knew” when I wanted help. I read this last week in one of Doreen Virtues books–an expert and author on Angels who I highly recommend.
Sighs of Angelic Presences:
1. Indentation on the couch or the seat is already warm like someone was just sitting on it-but no one was
2. Seeing flickering lights or flashes
3. Smelling wafts of smoke or of flowers when there are none of either around
4. Watch your animals-If you feel a presence in the room and your pets are acting funny and almost looking at people-chances are there are Angels or Spirit Guides around
5. Finding Feathers-Feathers are messages from Angels
Your Guardian Angels & Their Purpose:
We all have Guardian Angels-some of us have 1 some have more than 1. Some clairvoyants are good at seeing who your angels are and what their purpose is. I enjoyed doing this when I learned Theta. How would you know what you may have an angel for? I was surprised by the range of purposes they have–but,, is there a specific incident that’s happened to you multiple times–that could go very badly–but suddenly changes course with almost a miracle saving you–and it turns out fine or great in the end? You might have an angel who protects you from ______fill in whatever is your experience. I was SHOCKED at what one of mine was but it makes sense…
During my first Theta Healing Class I was told by the teacher I had 3 Guardian Angels with me at all times….She said I had one above my head-two above each shoulder. I loved hearing about the purpose of each one–and was shocked when she told me one was there to keep me safe from…….–OK you ready? Creepy men. Yep. Creepy Men. She was stern-and older, my teacher said –and gave them a swift kick if they looked at me funny or wanted me inappropriately apparently. The Angel told my teacher that because of my openness & empathic skills-and being young to be that developed but also seeming older than I am—I attracted a lot of “Weirdos”—SO TRUE! I attract so many weirdos–anyways, and she said that I often have men that are too old or just bad people having impure desires or thoughts about me- This Angel is there there to shoo them away or protect me from their thoughts and from them having any effect on me-and protect me from their energy. At first– I laughed-thinking that was weird–and funny–then I remembered how many scary or close encounters I had had with strange men following me–or harassing me–& how terrified I was but how I always was saved at the last second in a mysterious way. Just last night I had a man approach me in the parking lot of 711–oh my I have chills–whose energy was sooooo horrible, I felt sick….The cashier at 7-11 came out instantly and told him she was calling the police. I guess he had been banned and I can see why. So-I guess it does make sense–I can think of a couple examples of this being true for me:
….I had a stalker when I was 15 & freaked out when I saw him steps behind me late at night around Mission Beach. I ran from store to store hiding and he followed me…A family on vacation asked me if I was OK and we called the cops & I never saw him again. Days before this-he had approached me while I was walking home from the grocery store. I started running and running and every block I ran down-he seemed to be at the bottom waiting for me…I finally knocked on peoples houses screaming & one house had a loud dog that began barking when I knocked & he disappeared….
I had two other incidents that come to mind-these two while on vacation with my parents–once I was 12, once I was 15. I had two occasions where waiters at the hotel I was staying at got a key to my room and let themselves in at a time they had seen my parents leave but knew I was still up there. Needless to say–I was terrified–I feel sick just thinking of how I felt then, especially when I was 12. He had seemed like a nice guy, this waiter, but not someone I ever considered in that way–I mean I was 12 and he was at least in his mid-twenties-it would have never crossed my mind that someone that old could like me. He opened the door- shut the door behind him and came towards me…And started saying things I did not want to hear–when—although I had watched him shut the door & watched it click shut (my heart sank when it did)-all of the sudden, when he walked towards me–It FLEW OPEN on its own. A manager happened to be walking by–and see this waiter–and I yelled that I didn’t want my ice cream anymore (that’s what he brought to my room.) The waiter ran out and I never saw him again. The second time-my mom had left to go to do something but turned around on her way and came back to the room. She was none to pleased to find this guy in the room only moments after he came in, I told her he just let himself in and he was fired the same day.
How Your Angels May Communicate with You:
I’m sure many of you have had near death experiences maybe where you KNOW that some sort of being was there to help you. I know I have. I can think of 3-4 car accidents where I should have died and even though when these happened–I didn’t believe in all this stuff–I remember commenting to friends afterwards “OH MY GOD I could almost see the Angels guide my car to safety and move the other cars out of my way”–it was an odd thing for me to say every time…I also remember that my friends said every time “I am so glad you were driving-there is no way I would have kept the car under control had I been driving and we’d be dead.” They don’t realize they have angels too-and that it probably wasn’t my driving skills but the fact that I listened to my angels.
You know when you are in a Panic–lets say–fishtailing across 5 lanes of traffic on a busy freeway in Southern California on New Years Eve-and you cant get the brakes to work & its pouring rain and you are just spinning across lanes of traffic screaming–then see you are heading over the edge of the freeway and about to fall 50 feet onto another freeway. That type of panic–So I try stepping on the brakes–using the e-brake–turning the wheel–NOTHING–still going off the edge…Then you have a moment where a voice tells you to do something–and you either do it, or you don’t. that moment between life or death—and if you are alive–you’ve chosen to listen to your angels. Suddenly I stopped panicking-turned my wheel to the left while braking and the car suddenly stopped inches from the edge. I peered around me–we had both had our eyes covered for most of it–I was hunched over protecting myself because every second I braced myself to get smashed by a car–and smashed by another–and another–and when we flew across the 163 b back and forth I was shocked we weren’t getting hit. When we peered around–we saw that the entire side of our free way was EMPTY-except for a huge group of hundreds, thousands of cars–approaching us-and where we’d been fishtailing–but the entire freeway had been cleared in front of us and behind us for a good minute or two prior to this-and these cars coming all started in a perfect line—with no stray ones out of a perfect line anywhere.
The instructions you get when in a sticky situation ,where you are in panic mode, are instructions from your angels telling you how you can live. It is characterized by time slowing down-and the answer coming to you out of nowhere and you gaining this sudden strength to finish or fix whatever is going wrong…..And a miraculous ending.
Now-we don’t want to see our angels if these are the times we see them–near death? NO FUN!
This same concept applies when asking for help with ANYTHING. Can you think of a time you were crying or upset and said “God-what do I do?” or “What do I do?” or “How could this get better”……Did you stop to listen to your answer? Because I bet you got one! I can remember getting an answer soooo many times now–and ignoring it–because I wanted to wallow a little longer lol….
My idea to make my website was given to me by angels. I had just had back surgery and was miserable in every-way and in so much pain–I didn’t know how I could keep living in pain …I was crying and begging for help when I got “make a website. Practice connecting long-distance.”
Now this didn’t seem like it would help with my chronic pain and other situations I was upset about–but I listened….And I made a site offering free readings in exchange for letting me practice connecting……And….Here we are–its turned into something much more than I thought it would be-a career and something that makes me very happy–and I am no longer in any pain and have had a baby since then too-this was 1.5 years ago.
Listen to those strange ideas that come to you–or hunches you have. I think many people ignore anything that doesn’t seem obvious or that seems kinda different. When you are in traffic and say out loud “which way should I go” and you get the name of a street or freeway–follow it! Listen to that little voice…ESPECIALLY if you ask for help…Follow your intuition and listen to that little voice inside your head–it might be an angel!
Another way is through signs–has a song been stuck in your head for a few hours? What is it about? Do you keep seeing the same numbers or dates everywhere you go? Most likely a sign from your Angels or Spirit Guides.
So–for you to try this week…1st: .I’d like you to think if you can come up with any of the purposes one of your Guardian Angels may be here for….Don’t worry about how odd it may sound–Look at mine! LOL
Second: Ask your angels for help with whatever is bothering you or confusing you at that time. Say out loud that you request their assistance with ________ & then wait for a minute or two and notice what thoughts cross your mind….Write them down. Also-keep an eye on anything repetitive you notice in your life the next couple days–and see if it could be help from your Angels or Spirit Guides.
I’d love to hear your results if you want to post here or on my page-Lovelightandinsight.com
Thanks Again! Have a great week!
I don’t have time for the long post I intend to write on this subject but after speaking with another client, with chronic health problems, PCOS and low self esteem I want to bring this mental condition up to my clients.
Narcissistic Mothers Disorder, a mental illness almost impossible to treat because its almost impossible for a Narcissists to realize they are in fact, a narcissist. Now, Narcissistic Mothers raising daughters is a recipe for disaster and I experienced it first hand.
You’re never good enough. Your feelings, thoughts, wants, desires don’t matter. You’re not a person, your someone elses property. Everything is your fault and you’ve probably never heard the words “im sorry” come from your mothers lips. She may be over controlling or detached and either way, your worthless.
Many of you know how certain emotions or experiences or traumas create illness and many of you have gone through the process of healing from a certain issue with me, and may remember how I connect certain syndromes or illnesses with certain life experiences.
Many of you with PCOS know that my theory is it has a lot to do with GUILT and MOM.
As someone who used to have PCOS and am “cured” though they say its “incurable” i have a lot of experience in this area.
It goes further…..
We all want a mom…..many are best friends with their mothers & that is such a blessing.
Our mothers teach us everything in most cases, we learn from them what it means to be a woman…how to be a woman…how to feel about ourselves, our bodies…We watch our moms and learn everything about the world and life and how it works, whether we realize it or not.
Some mothers and daughters have very complex relationships or even terrible relationships, at worst, abusive.
Some mothers are there, but they aren’t “moms”.
I spent my life searching for my mothers approval. Instead I was at 7 she was putting me on diets bc I got chubby though wasn’t allowed to eat anything.
I had no mind or opinion…..I was an extension of her.
Until I was 21I thought it was normal to get diet pills in my Easter basket growing up. To have to wear the same two outfits every day of the week…
To have to return every xmas and bday present because it was meant for older ladies and for her to use the exchange for clothes for herself.
To be offered money to work out more often.
I often found “moms” in my friends mothers, in my adult years in my boyfriends mothers.
It was a friends mom who first picked up a pair of tweezers at 15 and said “its time to pluck your eyebrows honey.”
It was a friends mom who first put make-up on me, and told me I was beautiful. Made me feel beautiful, Deborah Cadoux.
She is who I went to about everything in highschool.
It was my Monica, my sons paternal grandmother, who held my hand while I gave birth to my son. She was the one who took me shopping for maternity clothes…for the 5 years I dated her son, she was the only mother to give me a birthday or Christmas present.
The last 2 years its been Alex’s mom, who hugs me when I cry and tells me she loves me, in the way only a mother can hug you and say i love you.
Shes the mom that picks up the phone when I call. After I had Miles, they blocked my number.
What happened to my mom?
Its a long story, but, growing up with my mom was growing up with guilt trips. I ruined everything…I got in the way of her work, her life. And I was her puppet, I was simply to eat what she told me to eat, do as she said & that was that. If i deviated from her control I was a horrible person….and at 25 when I decided to order what I wanted from a menu, not what she said I must order, the end of any relationship began.
When I refused to abort Miles, like she wanted, she was so furious it was the end of what mother daughter relationship we had.
There are two types of NM mothers, engulfing or detached.
Last year after years of extreme irrational behavior mixed with periods of estrangement, i googled my mothers behavior thinking ‘there has to be something wrong with her mentally, this isnt normal.”
Sure enough this syndrome came up and it was like a huge weight was lifted from my shoulders.
There was an exact description of my mom right before me and a mental disorder very hard to treat.
How does a narcissist realize they are a narcissist?
After speaking with a client tonight with a similar story, she googled NM and texted what a relief it was to have an answer.
After a lifetime of thinking your unlovable if your own mother doesn’t love you, its important to realize its not you.
Its not you.
I encourage looking it up if you’ve had a problem relationship with your mother and for the majority of your life was made to feel worthless, ugly, stupid and filled with guilt.
If you were never heard or allowed to be your own person.
Just knowing helps a lot. Its not you, you deserve the world….you just happened to be raised by someone who wasn’t capable of giving you the love you deserve.
usually, these mothers had mothers exactly the same and swore not to become them.
My mom swore she would never become like her mom, and is 10X worse.
I’ve broken the cycle. And so will you. Love your child unconditionally……
I was loved under ‘conditions,’ Thats not real love…..once you can recognize and begin healing, you will learn to love yourself unconditionally which is what matters most..
I had an interesting session today with someone that called me out of the blue insisting we speak in “4 minutes.” I could tell this man was very very intense and I had just woken up but thought “hey, I want all the business in the world why not.” I agreed and just asked for enough time to run his card and make a cup of coffee.
8 minutes passed, not 4. He was agitated. We began the session in the chat room (before hand I explained how my readings work, what I get, about Manifesting, Theta, etc etc.) and oh boy!!!! What an experience!
I dont know if I ever fully answered one question because I don’t think I was ever given a chance to.
Before he even finished a question within the first 3 sentences of my answer I was interrupted.
Basically this man had his heart broken 3 weeks ago when the girl he thought was his soul mate suddenly dumped him. He could not accept this.
I immediately got that she coudlnt’t handle him (nor could I), she’d met someone else, she was over it. Period. She hadn’t called since.
Ladies, if we like a guy, do we call?
Meanwhile he was hiring 4 different healers to work on her without her permission (which I find unethical and will not do) to make him love her again.
We agreed our styles did not connect and left our conversation at that.
The truth is, love can hurt.
And love is the best feeling in the world.
Though we can’t force romantic love or cast spells or do healings to force people to love us (don’t ask, I won’t do it! lol) , what we can do is send love….the more love we send to others, the more our cells vibrate love and the more love of all kinds enters our lives.
Love is the most pure and powerful emotion in the universe
- love does not degrade, demaean and threaten
- love does not constantly uncessearily blame others for mistakes they did not make
- love does not taunt or swear at
and finallly, love is the opposite of MALICIOUSNESS
So to all of you, remember what love is and remember that you deserve love……
I deserve the best. And I deserve love, so do you.

Who is the authentic you?
FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS humans have tried to understand the universe, nature, and mainly human nature. It’s amazing to observe humans in action all around the world, in all the different places and cultures that exist on this beautiful planet Earth. Humans make a lot of effort to understand, but in doing so we also make a lot of assumptions. We distort the truth and create the most amazing theories; we create entire philosophies and the most amazing religions; we create stories and superstitions about everything, including ourselves. And this is exactly the main point: We create them.
Humans are born with the power of creation, and we are constantly creating stories with the words that we learned. Every one of us uses the word to form our opinions, to express our point of view. Countless events are happening all around us, and using our attention, we have the capacity to put all these events together in a story. We create the story of our own life, the story of our family, the story of our community, the story of our country, the story of humanity, the story of the entire world. Every one of us has a story that we share, a message that we deliver to ourselves, and to everyone and everything around us.
You were programmed to deliver a message, and the creation of that message is your greatest art. What is the message? Your life. With that message, you create mainly the story of you, and then a story about everything you perceive. You create an entire virtual reality in your mind, and you live in that reality. When you think, you’re thinking in your language; you’re repeating in your mind all those words that mean something to you. You’re giving yourself a message, and that message is the truth for you because you believe that it’s the truth.
The story of you is everything that you know about you. And when I say this, I’m talking to you, knowledge, what you believe you are, not to you, the human, what you really are. As you can see, I make a distinction between you and you because one of you is real, and one of you is not real. You, the physical human, are real; you are the truth. You, knowledge — you’re not real; you’re virtual. You only exist because of the agreements you made with yourself and with the other humans around you. You, knowledge, come from the words you hear in your head, from all the opinions of the people you love, the people you don’t love, the people you know, and mostly the people you’ll never know.
Who is talking in your head? You make the assumption that it’s you. But if you are the one who is talking, then who is listening? You, knowledge, are the one who is talking in your head, telling you what you are. You, the human, are listening, but you, the human, existed long before you had knowledge. You existed long before you understood all those words, before you learned to speak, and just like any child before he or she learns to speak, you were completely authentic. You didn’t pretend to be what you are not. Without even knowing it, you trusted yourself completely; you loved yourself completely. Before you learned knowledge, you were totally free to be what you really are because all those opinions and stories from other humans were not in your head already.
Your mind is full of knowledge, but how are you using that knowledge? How are you using the word when it comes to describing yourself? When you look at yourself in a mirror, do you like what you see, or do you judge your body and use all those words to tell yourself lies? Is it really true that you are too short or too tall, too heavy or too thin? Is it really true that you are not beautiful? Is it really true that you’re not perfect just the way you are?
Can you see all the judgments that you have about yourself? Every judgment is just an opinion — it’s just a point of view — and that point of view wasn’t there when you were born. Everything you think about yourself, everything you believe about yourself, is because you learned it. You learned the opinions from Mom, Dad, siblings, and society. They sent all those images of how a body should look; they expressed all those opinions about the way you are, the way you are not, the way you should be. They delivered a message, and you agreed with that message. And now you think so many things about what you are, but are they the truth?
You see, the problem is not really knowledge; the problem is believing in a distortion of knowledge — and that is what we call a lie. What is the truth, and what is the lie? What is real, and what is virtual? Can you see the difference, or do you believe that voice in your head every time it speaks and distorts the truth while assuring you that what you believe is the way things really are? Is it really true that you’re not a good human, and that you’ll never be good enough? Is it really true that you don’t deserve to be happy? Is it really true that you’re not worthy of love?
Once you learn a language, you can use the word to judge yourself according to everything that you know. That’s when you become the good human, the bad human, the guilty one, the crazy one, the powerful one, the weak one, the beautiful one, the ugly one. You are what you believe you are. Then the first question is: “What do you believe you are?”
If you use your awareness, you will see everything you believe, and this is how you live your life. Your life is totally dominated by the system of beliefs that you learned. Whatever you believe is creating the story that you’re experiencing; whatever you believe is creating the emotions that you’re experiencing. And you may really want to believe that you are what you believe, but that image is completely false. It’s not the real you.
The real you is unique and it’s beyond everything that you know, because the real you is the truth. You, the human, are the truth. Your physical presence is real. What you believe about yourself is not real, and it’s not important unless you want to create a better story for yourself. Truth or fiction; either way, the story that you’re creating is a work of art. Words are your paintbrush, and your life is the canvas. You can paint whatever you want to paint; you can even copy another artist’s work — but what you express with your paintbrush is the way you see yourself, the way you see the entire reality. What you paint is your life, and how it looks will depend on how you are using the word. When you realize this, it may dawn on you that the word is a powerful tool for creation. When you learn to use that tool with awareness, you can make history with the word. What history? Your life’s history, of course. The story of you.

Are you stealing or adding to the energy of others?
Everything is energy. All the events we seeing occurring in our lives and the lives of others are interactions of this energy. The part of this energy that we have come to know as ourselves is often vibrating at different energy levels. The higher we are vibrating the more we are connecting with our true source which is nothing less than unconditional love and abundance.
When we are vibrating at a high level our world is good when we are not it invites negative experiences. All negative experiences have come about because we have let our energy drop to a low level.
You have a store of energy. The level of this energy will determine the results and outcomes of the events of your life. The higher your store of energy the more positive the outcome will be.
The good news is we can increase our energy level. Thoughts of love and gratitude will increase our level of energy. We can literally create an incredible life experience just by concentrating on feeling love and gratitude.
When we are feeling fear, depression, or even just lethargy this is a sign we are depleting our energy levels. It is important that we constantly monitor our energy and always replenish it with thoughts of love and gratitude especially when we feel it lowering.
Unfortunately most are not aware of energy levels but still feel their effects and especially the effects of their energy interacting with others. Energy can be exchanged by others. You can use your energy to either add to or detract from another person’s energy. Many are unknowing competing with each other for their energy.
To feel you have to be right and to one up another person is to steal their energy. While you may be temporarily increasing your energy level, it is only a small temporary increase of energy taken from another person with a small energy level. The energy is nowhere near as powerful as concentrating on feelings of love and gratitude. Plus you are draining the energy level of another individual. Which is not something you want to do because you are aiding in opening their lives up to negative consequences.
Many of our conflicts with others are because we perceive lack. This lack causes us to steal the energy of others. When we become aware that we live in an abundant universe where we can have everything we want we will stop trying take the energy of others. Especially when we realize the energy we take from them in no way compares to the abundant source of energy we have access to.
Be aware of your energy level. Don’t let it drop. Replenish it with thoughts of love and gratitude and you will be amazed.
