You Are Not Alone

“Do not assume that divine guidance flows only when you are in need of help. Guidance continues to flow whether or not you have problems.   It...comes during times of tranquility or trauma...it is up to you to have the courage to acknowledge it.”  ~ Caroline Myss

You are not alone.

If there was only one thing I could convey to you, it is that you are not alone.  You are constantly being guided. It can be very hard to believe at times but I assure you-- you are not alone. If there is ever a time when you feel you you need help, please ask the Universe (God or whomever you believe in) for help-- and then listen. Often times we are too busy to wait for an answer and so we think that our prayers are not being answered. We also have a preconceived notion about what form our answer or guidance should come as. Please be open to everything and be patient. Everything is happening in divine timing.

You are being guided in various ways. The key is to always be listening. Guidance will come through friends, family, situations, and things. I have seen this so many times, that I no longer believe in coincidences. I call them synchronicities because guidance from the Universe is all about timing. Guidance will come.  It is in the timing of your listening and being ready to hear the message that will make all the difference.

When I first started out on this journey to energy medicine I was pretty clueless as to what direction I should go in.  So I began by reading several books based on the scientific evidence of psychic phenomenon. I read a book about 5 or so famous mediums who were put through a series of tests to prove their ability to talk to those who have crossed over. I was particularly impressed by one medium called John Edward. Reading about his gift made me wonder about what mine might be. At the time, I had many gifts that were developing and I didn’t know what to do with them. Was I a medical intuitive, psychic, healer, or medium?

At the time I finished the book about the 5 mediums, I found myself at a school fundraiser with many donated books for sale. Being on a budget, I hoped I could find the perfect book-- and I did. While perusing the plethora of books, I glanced down and saw a John Edward book right there!  When I looked at it, I knew there was a message inside it to me. I quickly opened the book and looked at the inside cover...nothing. Hmmm, maybe it’s on the last few pages. Nothing. I decided to take home the book anyway and thought I was silly for thinking a message for me was somehow embedded in the book. Maybe the message is in the text of the book, but that didn’t seem right either. It really felt like there was a message for me specifically.

Weeks later, I was sitting on my couch reading his book and decide to get a cup of coffee. I place the book down and out falls a note! At that point, I actually freaked out. This is what the note said:

Dear Amy,

This is not your gift.  It is coming in the mail.  We have subscribed to John Edward’s newsletter for you for a year. Hope you have a wonderful year!

Love,

Ellen and David

Holy moly!  You are probably thinking I made this up! But I didn’t! I promise. The amount of things that needed to be orchestrated in order for me to receive this message is incredible. This is the short version of what was orchestrated (it definitely entailed so much more). Amy (whomever she is) had a birthday, Ellen and David decided to give this book (which they felt wasn’t enough for Amy), so they decided to write a note, Amy decided to donate the book with the note in the book, I decided to attend the fundraiser, look for a book, wonder what my “gift” was, listen to the message of guidance about this book, buy the book, read the book and find the note.

You may be thinking why didn’t the Universe present the note right away when I looked for it? It’s because I wasn’t ready to hear the message. I needed to buy the book to learn from his work and get a better understanding of his gift. Only then was I ready to learn that being a medium wasn’t “my gift.” While I will talk to spirits who have crossed over, and enjoy it, I only use their information to help me with a healing.

Because of that experience I learned that I should always be open to and listen to the messages and signs that I’m looking for and to not assume the form that the guidance should come in.

In the course of my time working in the spiritual realm, I have learned, without a doubt, the Universe has got my back (and yours). Knowing that help is always available (if we take the time to listen) should bring some relief.

I hope this example inspires you to take notice and listen--I think you will be as amazed as I have been.

The Prayer

"Your mind can only hold one thought at a time. Make it a positive and constructive one." - H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

This time of year is beautiful!  It’s a time for reflection, granting wishes, and a time for sharing moments.  For some, this time of year can be a struggle--both financially and personally.

If you are someone who is finding it difficult to give monetarily, I have something to share with you.

The power of prayer.  Large scientific studies have confirmed both prayer and distance healing to have a greater effect than chance.  In a study published in 2001, a group of mothers in a fertility clinic in Korea were divided into two groups.  One group was prayed for and the other was not.  These prayers were sent over great distances (from the USA, Canada, and Australia) from people of all religions and cultures to the fertility clinic.  This effort resulted in nearly doubling the amount of pregnancies from in vitro fertilization in the group that was prayed for.  The pregnancy rates went from 26% to 50%!  No one even knew who was being prayed for in the clinic until the study was completed.  Incredible! And there are several other studies that support the power of prayer and intent! (The Human Antenna, Dr. Robin Kelly pg. 74)

What we are talking about here is energy!  Everything is comprised of energy--including thoughts!   Scientists have discovered (from EEGs) that our brains emit different frequencies of waves.  They are Alpha, Beta, Delta and Theta.  Each brain wave serves a different purpose in our life.  We learn in Beta, we sleep in Delta, we meditate in Alpha, and we transcend in Theta.  Quantum physicists are discovering that the Theta waves are linked with the feeling of Oneness.  They have found that this is the state that energy healers, psychics, mediums, and experienced meditators are in when they are sending and receiving universal information.  We know, from scientific research that waves continue endlessly through time.

This holiday season, wrap your thoughts in positivity and know that you have positively effected those near and far--and eternity.  What could be better?
