How to Find Happiness Medicine-Click Picture For Article
Would you like to wake up every morning feeling happier, fully alive, and more connected to life than you already are?

Of course you would. We all want to be happier. In fact, Aristotle said that “happiness is the goal of all goals—the be all and end all of life.”

Unfortunately, we don’t always feel happy. But we can change and here is how!

Once a man from a tribal culture had become troubled and unhappy. The villagers had taken him to the local shaman (medicine man). After the suffering man poured out his troubles to the wise spiritual leader, the shaman sat quietly for a moment. Then, instead of giving him advice or prescribing an herbal remedy, the shaman simply asked him four questions:

1. When did you stop singing?
2. When did you stop dancing?
3. When did you stop being enchanted by story?
4. When did you stop being comforted by the sweet territory of silence?

Across all cultures, the healers and medicine people know that if someone is unhappy, they are inevitably missing one or more of these four crucial ingredients for happiness.

Without song, movement, story-telling and silence, we begin to experience a loss of soul or spirit.

Let’s take a closer look at each of these:

1. Singing: Singing can be as simple as humming or chanting or it can be a full blown aria in the shower. You don’t have to have a great voice or be on key—just singing opens the heart. Research shows that the sound of your own voice singing, chanting or humming strengthens your immune system. Even though we often think of singing as an expression of being happy, it can actually help you recover your inner peace and well-being if you’ve lost your joy.

2. Dancing/Moving Your Body: Every culture throughout history has had some form of movement in dance, sport, and exercise. Moving your body creates endorphins, the feel-good hormone. Movement and dance bring you back into your body and help you trust your body’s deep wisdom.

3. Storytelling/Sharing with Others: Storytelling is one of the oldest healing tools igniting our heart and imagination and re-enchanting the world. Make sure to share your story with others—not the victim version, but the empowered one.

4. Silence: While silence is something that’s hard to come by in our culture, it is one of the most important allies you have in raising your happiness level. Being silent, even for 10 or 15 minutes a day, allows you to touch the great mystery of life and remember who you are.

So, the next time you find yourself a little down or in a funk, remember the shaman’s four questions. Then add a bit of singing, dancing, story-telling, and silence into your day. I guarantee you will find this powerful medicine working in your life.

Take A Journey Into The Spirit World-April 22, 2014-click picture for radio program information
Most people are familiar with the concept of channeling the deceased. In the past I did channeling for many years. I became more and more uncomfortable doing this process as I felt it was wrong to command a spirit to come on demand. Sometimes I had departed souls tell me to leave them alone. I stopped channeling two years ago because I have found a better and gentler approach to communicating with a deceased loved one, Spirit Guides and even Angels, which I call Guided Journey into the Spirit World. Using this method I am able to take people into the spirit world through astral projection. In this process you are able to see and talk directly to whoever is waiting for you in the spirit world. There is no demand on who will come to you on this journey, but it will be whoever has messages for You.

I am doing a radio program on this subject Tuesday, April 22 at 9:00 PM ET, 8:00 PM CT, 6:00 PM PT. Join me for this exciting program and I will explain this different approach to spiritual communication. CLICK HERE FOR RADIO SHOW INFO.

If you do not get to hear the program live please remember that you can listen to this program 24 hours a day as it is archived. Just click the link above and it will take you to the program.

The History of Easter Eggs!  Click picture for full article
It’s common knowledge that Easter is a Christian celebration of Christ’s rising, but this holiday also has pagan origins. Where did the colored eggs, cute little bunnies, baby chicks, leg of lamb dinners, and lilies come from? They are all symbols of rebirth and the lamb was a traditional religious sacrifice.

Easter falls in the spring, the yearly time of renewal, when the earth renews itself after a long, cold winter. The word Easter comes to us from the Norsemen’s Eostur, Eastar, Ostara, and Ostar, and the pagan goddess Eostre, all of which involve the season of the growing sun and new birth. The Easter Bunny arose originally as a symbol of fertility, due to the rapid reproduction habits of the hare and rabbit.

Long hard winters often meant little food, and a fresh egg for Easter was quite a prize. Later, Christians abstained from eating meat during the Lenten season prior to Easter. Easter was the first chance to enjoy eggs and meat after the long abstinence.

The egg is nature’s perfect package. It has, during the span of
history, represented mystery, magic, medicine, food and omen. The
egg represents the rebirth of the earth. The long, hard winter is
over; the earth burst forth and is reborn just as the egg
miraculously burst forth with life. The egg, therefore, is believed
to have special powers.

It was buried under the foundations of buildings to ward off evil;
pregnant young Roman women carried an egg on their persons to
foretell the sex of their unborn children; French brides stepped
upon an egg before crossing the threshold of their new homes.

It is the universal symbol of Spring celebrations throughout the
world and has been dyed, painted, adorned and embellished in the
celebration of its special symbolism.

To many Pagans, the golden yolk represents the Sun God, while its
white shell is seen as the White Goddess and the egg as a whole
represents rebirth.

Traditionally, the eggs were marked with brilliant colors along with
various types of bands drawn upon them which represented the cycles
of life, death, and rebirth. Other symbols representing the triple
Goddess, the Sun, and such shapes as triangles, squares, circles,
and dots can usually be found. The drawing of special signs upon a
symbolic object as with the eggs is a form of magic, as is done
when creating a talisman or amulet.

Many condemn pagan traditions and yet so much of what is celebrated stems from these traditions. People are often surprised when I tell them that Native Americans are pagan in origin. The traditions are about celebrating The Creator and creation.

Whatever your beliefs are enjoy and celebrate them during this holy time and allow others to have freedom to celebrate what they believe.

Full Pink Moon April 15, 2014, click picture for article
There is a total lunar eclipse on April 15, 2014, which means we will experience not only a “Full Pink Moon” (any full moon that occurs in April, per Native American tradition) and a “Paschal Full Moon” (the first full moon after the vernal equinox, per Christian tradition), but also, thanks to the eclipse, a “Blood Moon.”

The full moon invites us to release all that dims our light, all that holds us back in the space of our heart and physical environment. The full moon is a time of positive opportunity if you use it correctly. It can increase your positive energy or conversely, it can wreak havoc on your emotions.

Since the full moon pours down a tremendous amount of energy, you must be in a calm state of mind to receive a positive effect. Remember that whatever is going on in your body, mind and spirit will be amplified

The Pink Moon received its name from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other names for this month’s celestial body include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.

Egg Moon: The full moon of April. Also known as the pink moon. Both names indicate the sprouting of seed and the explosion of bright beauty found in the phlox (pink) and other flowers rising for the spring debut.

April Moon Facts & Folklore

Some Christians attribute a prophetic significance to the Blood Moon of April 15, because it will be the first of a lunar tetrad — four total lunar eclipses in a row — occurring in 2014 and 2015, and because each of those eclipses will fall on an important Jewish holiday, Passover or Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles).

On April 20, 1972, the lunar module of Apollo XVI landed on the moon with astronauts John Young and Charles Duke aboard. Thomas Mattingly remained in orbit around the moon aboard the command module. This was the third exportation of the moon.

One day later on April 21, 1972, Apollo XVI astronauts John Young and Charles Duke drove an electric car (LEM) on the surface of the moon. It’s still up there along with some expensive tools and some film that they forgot.

The period from the full Moon through the last quarter of the Moon is the best time for killing weeds, thinning, pruning, mowing, cutting timber, and planting below-ground crops.

Enjoy the full moon!

Life Lessons from the Easter Bunny! Click picture for article
Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

Everyone needs a friend who is all ears.

There’s no such thing as too much candy.

All work and no play can make you a basket case.

A cute tail attracts a lot of attention.

Everyone is entitled to a bad Hare day.

Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits.

Some body parts should be floppy.

Keep your paws off of other people’s jelly beans.

Good things come in small, sugar coated packages.

The grass is always greener in someone else’s basket.

To show your true colors, you have to come out of your shell.

The best things in life are still sweet and gooey.

May the joy of the season fill your spirit with love.
God bless you and have a Happy, Holy, Healthy and Blessed Easter!

Have We Met In Past Lives? Click picture for article.
I am greatly honored to have my article on “Past Lives” featured in Psychic Guidepost Magazine for Spring 2014. The magazine did such a beautiful layout and you can view it by CLICKING HERE . You can zoom in and be able to see the complete article which is a four page spread.

Have you ever met someone and felt that you have known them before? Do you find that you know certain aspects of this person’s personality and yet you have never met before? There is a good reason for this. It’s a strong possibility that you have been together in a previous lifetime. That’s why the connection is instantaneous. The very fact that we are drawn to certain people and certain places is a reflection of the dim memory of previous lives we all possess.

The first time I had this experience was when I was an atheist in my early twenties and I met a man that I knew I had known before in another life. That was quite remarkable considering I had no spiritual beliefs at that time. Obviously I have developed spiritual beliefs and understand life after death since my earlier years. Since that first meeting with someone I felt I knew before I have had it happen on other occasions.

I discuss the significance of past lives with our current life in this article. If you have problems viewing it in the magazine you can CLICK HERE to see my original article on my website. I love doing past life regressions with clients and if you are interested you can contact me about this service.

I hope you enjoy this article and I am more than thrilled that it was published by Psychic Guidepost Magazine.

Music and Movies--Touching Our Spirits, Changing Our Lives. Click picture for article
Have you ever noticed how at times a piece of music or something from a movie touches your heart and mind in a profound way? Afterwards, you begin to realize how you have been affected both psychologically and spiritually. These are truly aha” moments. If you are really spiritually attuned, you may feel it as an electric current within your body or as a tuning of your personal radio signal. When we remember that we are beings of vibration, it all makes perfect sense.

Did you know that people can become mentally conditioned to respond to a set stimulus like a series of tone signals? It works almost like a telephone does in that you dial a certain combination of numbers, and then that special sequence keys the equipment to connect one instrument to another.

Some people can receive messages from Spirit through song lyrics or something they see or hear in a movie. Spirit can bring an apt verse to mind that provides the answer to the conundrum; hearing it in this way is a form of clairaudience. Songs and movies that resonate with an individual can be used to send information to that individual. Spirit resonates with the “tuning” that the recipient of the message has and sends the message with “the right vibes,” so to speak.

Please join renowned astrologer Leslie McGuirk and me as we discuss how Music and Movies touch our spirits. This Will Be A Live Internet Radio Program On April 8, 2014 At 9:00 PM Eastern Time, 8:00 PM Central Time, 6:00 PM Pacific Time. Click Here To Go To The Radio Program Station.

Remember if you cannot hear the live broadcast this program will be available to listen to 24 hours a day by clicking on the same link to listen to the program live on the Internet. It is archived permanently and always available.

After all, we are not humans having spiritual experiences, but we are spirits having human experiences!
