The Hidden Face of Cyber Bullying


by Cherokee Billie.

When cyber bullying is mentioned people, often think of teenagers on the internet. Well, it goes far beyond teenagers playing around on the internet. Cyber bullying has become a hidden evil that sick, weak-minded people use to exert power, fear, and control over someone.

For quite some time I have been following on Facebook a Native American Elder, who is terminally ill and is spending his last days leaving messages that he is receiving from Spirit. We have become good friends and speak on the telephone. I have never seen such courage and commitment to help others as this man has given during his short time left on this planet. Every day I look forward to going to his page and reading the messages he is receiving from Spirit. The visions he is receiving are far reaching into the future, and I do believe the messages he is channeling are coming directly from the Divine Spirit.

His health is fading fast, and he only has a brief moment left to his life. A few weeks ago people started attacking him on his page and accusing him of being a liar about being terminally ill. I know how sick this man is because he has written his diagnosis to me, and I have spoken to him. They also started attacking him about his visions and his Native American heritage.

This has stressed him beyond what he can take, and he has removed himself from Facebook. This is a sad loss to the thousands that followed him daily. I called him the other day to see how he was doing, and he was struggling to talk, but he was so confused as to why he was targeted for such attacks. I told him the ones who attacked him are nothing and they have to exert their power over someone, so, of course, they pick on the weakest. I said prayers with him and we hung up the phone. Often when you are dying, your mind becomes confused, and this beautiful brother has managed to stay focused despite being on heavy narcotics for the pain that he is in. I admire him tremendously.

Cyber bullying does not just hurt someone’s feelings; it is also attacking someone’s spirit. Spiritual attacks are very real because of the negative energies that dwell in many people’s soul. We are spirits inhabiting our bodies, and when something attacks us personally, it goes down to the very core of our existence.

The Beautiful You


In an American history discussion group, the professor was trying to explain how, throughout history, the concept of “beauty” changes with time. “For example,” he said, “take the 1921 Miss America. She stood five feet, one inch tall, weighed 108 pounds and sported a 30-inch bust, a 25-inch waist and 32-inch hips. How do you think she’d do in today’s version of the contest?”

The class fell silent for a moment. Then one student piped up, “Not very well.”

“Why is that?” asked the professor.

“For one thing,” the student pointed out, “she’d be way too old.”

Good point — she would be way too old. But really, beauty is a peculiar thing; it changes with perspectives and means something different to everyone. The beauty that should be most notable is authentic beauty.

Authentic beauty is something deep within — the real you. It is the YOU that is being rediscovered with each new experience; the YOU that is so vividly reflected in those precious few who love us with all their heart.

For inside, you are more beautiful than you may ever know. It would be a waste to never realize that.

An elderly woman noticed that her granddaughter felt embarrassed by her freckles. “I love your freckles,” she said, kneeling beside the girl and admiring her face.

“Not me,” the child replied.

“Well, when I was a little girl I always wanted freckles,” the grandmother said, tracing her finger across the child’s cheek. “Freckles are beautiful.”

The girl looked up. “Really?”

“Of course,” said her grandmother. “Why just name me one thing that’s prettier than freckles.”

The little girl peered into the old woman’s smiling face. “Wrinkles,” she answered softly.

She knew about beauty. Do not close your eyes to the beauty that exists within you!

Happy Friday!

A Mother’s Love


A little boy came up to his mother in the kitchen one evening while she was fixing supper, and handed her a piece of paper that he had been writing on. After his Mom dried her hands on an apron, she read it, and this is what it said:

For cutting the grass: $5.00
For cleaning up my room this week: $1.00
For going to the store for you: $.50
Baby-sitting my kid brother while you went shopping: $.25
Taking out the garbage: $1.00
For getting a good report card: $5.00
For cleaning up and raking the yard: $2.00
Total owed: $14.75

Well, his mother looked at him standing there, and the boy could see the memories flashing through her mind. She picked up the pen, turned over the paper he’d written on, and this is what she wrote:

For the nine months I carried you while you were growing inside me:
No Charge

For all the nights that I’ve sat up with you, doctored and prayed for you: No Charge

For all the trying times, and all the tears that you’ve caused through the years:
No Charge

For all the nights that were filled with dread, and for the worries I knew were ahead:
No Charge

For the toys, food, clothes, and even wiping your nose:
No Charge

Son, when you add it up, the cost of my love is:
No Charge.

When the boy finished reading what his mother had written, there were big tears in his eyes, and he looked straight at his mother and said,”Mom, I sure do love you.” And then he took the pen and in great big letters he wrote: “PAID IN FULL”.

Advice: IF your mom is alive and close to you give her a big kiss and ask her for forgiveness. If she is far away, call her. If she passed away, pray and talk with her.

Mardi Gras history


Mardi Gras is February 21st this year, and with it comes music, parades, krewes, beads, and celebration! You can find a mask or create a costume and head to New Orleans, or you can look for splashes of the holiday to show up in towns like yours. It’s a big celebration, but what is it exactly and how did the whole thing get started?

The “Fat Tuesday” gala started a long time ago, actually way back in 1857. Mardi Gras marks the last day of the Carnival season, a period of rich feasting and frivolity which follows Epiphany and is the day before Ash Wednesday when Lent begins. It’s a floating holiday and the date of Mardi Gras varies slightly because it must fall 47 days before Easter Sunday.

The traditional Mardi Gras colors of purple, gold, and green have their roots in political and religious arenas. Purple stands for justice, green for faith, and gold for power. In 1872 some businessmen invented a King of the Carnival festivities named Rex and the first Rex selected the colors and the significance they hold today. A new Rex is chosen each year by the School of Design in New Orleans, the sponsors of the Rex parade. In the “city that care forgot,” the parade champions make sure that visitors and natives alike follow Rex who will always set their hearts to music with “If ever I cease to love.”

Here are some extra Mardi Gras fun facts:

• Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday”

• Mardi Gras celebrations have their origins in the ancient Roman festival, Lupercalia. It is considered the last great indulgence before the 40-day fasting period of Lent.

• Mardi Gras migrated to the United States by way of many French influences, including French explorer Pierre le Moyne d’Iberville in the Louisiana territory in 1699.

• The first Mardi Gras parade in the United States was in 1837.

• The official colors of Mardi Gras: green (faith), purple justice), and gold (power).

• Krewe: a non-profit organization or club participating in a parade.

• The first “throw” (beads or small trinkets) happened in 1871 when a krewe member dressed up as Santa Claus and tossed gifts to parade revelers.

So, how are you going to celebrate Mardi Gras? Try making a famous King Cake, decorating fun masks, or throw a party!

Heal your grief for Whitney Houston and Others


So many people feel they do not have a way to express their grief over the loss of Whitney Houston and I am going to share ways that will help you deal with grief. It’s important that you continue to live a full life and be thankful that Whitney shared a portion of your life. It does not matter who you are grieving for, the techniques I have given below are going to help. So here are some thoughts that I have put together that I would like for you to focus on to get over grieving.

Focus on Whitney Houston’s music, and videos, not her shortcomings or the rumors about her death.

Don’t believe everything you hear and read. Respect her for what you hear of her music and her videos and don’t listen to the gossip. The pain will ease but never lift.

Whitney shared a magnetism and connection to her fans that transcends any physical place or structure.
Whitney could give you a smile that would melt your heart or make you believe you were the most special person in the world. Remember her presence will always be with us.

The best way to remember her is by literally paying attention to the message that she conveys in her music videos and songs.

To me music is a therapy, and I listen to music that has a positive message and it heals my spirit.

The Important Thing Is Learning How To Cherish A Memory Without Getting Stuck There.

A Healing Meditation

Sit in special place that you make your sacred space and prepare yourself with your own special opening ritual—for example, a prayer or the lighting of a candle or incense. You may want to spend time voicing your emotions, releasing feelings and balancing your energy—so that you can focus on the pure intention of giving your love to Whitney.

When you feel centered, close your eyes and visualize Whitney’s face. When the energy of this experience is at its height, send a beam of unconditionally loving energy out of your heart to Whitney. You can imagine a beam of light or a color, but pay special attention to the sensations of power in your heart moving out towards Whitney. Hold this feeling for a few moments, leaving your own concerns aside in order to devote all of your energy to simply wishing Whitney the best.

When it feels appropriate to end, ask for help on your own journey ahead. Give thanks for the love and support that you know is always there from your loved one, your ancestors, and your spiritual guides and teachers. Give thanks even if you can’t see the way ahead and even though it may be hard to know what to feel thankful for.

Asking for help calls energy in; giving thanks sends it out. Your heart is the doorway for this universal rhythm of loving. By keeping it open you stay connected to the most powerful healing of all.

I pray that everyone who grieves for Whitney Houston be touched by the healing Angel Rafael. Remember Whitney doesn’t need healing as she is whole and complete in spirit.

Share your thoughts about Whitney Houston


Whitney was so loved worldwide and her untimely death brings feelings of sorrow to so many. I felt it would be good for you to be able to express your feelings and thoughts at this time about Whitney. I thought it was really beautiful last night that LL started the Grammys with a prayer for Whitney. Before he did anything else, host LL Cool J addressed the crowd about the death of Whitney Houston. “We’ve had a death in our family, and so at least for me, for me, the only thing that feels right is to begin with a prayer,” he said. And then he read a prayer in honor of the late singer: “Heavenly Father, we thank you for sharing Whitney Houston with us,”

For many of you I know that it reminds you of the passing of Michael Jackson. These wonderful people came into the world to bring light and happiness. Let us always remember how fortunate we have been to have them in our lives.

Take time to remember all of the wonderful artists that have passed, but left us with so many wonderful memories. The heavenly choir is filled with beautiful sounds that we will all be able to hear one day.

Feel free to share your thoughts and heartfelt tributes to Whitney.

What Happens When We Die?


by Cherokee Billie.

When a famous person dies suddenly it stirs up people’s thoughts about life after death. With the sudden passing of Whitney Houston I felt that this article would be appropriate for many. Death is a universal experience. No one can hope to escape it. It is only a matter of time till it comes to each one of us and those we love. Most death beds are peaceful when the time comes and few go out struggling. What, then, is it we fear in death that it should be for us a thing of grief and dread?

Firstly, we fear the unknown. To quote Shakespeare, “For in that sleep of death what dreams may come-When we have shuffled off this mortal coil?”

Secondly, we dread the separation from those we love.

These are the things that make death terrible. How differently should we set out to cross the Threshold were our minds at rest on these two points. What I have written will help you not have such fear.

My Personal Experiences

First off I want you to know that what I write about comes from my personal experience. I was brought up with basic religious beliefs that there is a heaven and hell. Starting at a young age I was seeing colors around people and apparitions, although I did not know what any of this meant. In my early twenties I finally became an atheist because I felt, based on religious teachings that I would never be perfect enough for God, so why bother to even try, although I continued living a life where I harmed no one. What helped me change my mind was attending a metaphysical school for six years. How I started going to this school was an elderly lady asked me if I would drive her because she was afraid of driving at night. I volunteered and had never been in a metaphysical church before and was surprised at how there was no condemnation in the teachings. I continued taking this lady until she passed away and then I kept going on my own and started attending their classes.

What I learned there could never be captured in a book. Not only did we study we were taught how to practice such work as, meditation, hypnosis, sensory touch and feel, astral projection (out of body experience), crystal therapy, and energy channeling.

You may ask why that would change my view. The more I practiced this alone, the more it became natural and real for me.

I used many of these techniques as a Naturopathic doctor. I ended each session with the client by putting them in a hypnotic state, so that they could relax and accelerate their healing. They would always exclaim how good they felt afterwards.

My biggest learning experience had to do with my father’s dying. He was comatose and I knew that he had a great fear of dying. What I did was put myself in a hypnotic state and I projected myself to his hospital room and there I took his spirit and we traveled to the other side (the fifth dimension). I figured my mother would be the first one to greet him as she passed away several years before. Surprisingly the person that greeted my father on the other side was his army sergeant who had been killed in World War Two. My father was so happy to see him again. I waited at the entrance and my father went and visited so many people that he loved and loved him. I could hear him laughing and talking. When he was finished he came to me and we transported back into his hospital room and he went back into his body. The next day he died. I knew that he died without fear.

The following morning as I awoke my father was screaming into my right ear everything he wanted me to know. I woke up saying, “Dad, you’re hurting my ear. Stop talking so loud.” I then did my best to remember exactly what he had been saying. It amazed me. I had never had such a spiritual connection in my life. Over the next few days he appeared to me, each time with a message. Throughout the years he has continued to communicate and on rare occasions I have been able to see him. It’s absolutely fascinating. He’s definitely my main Spirit Guide.

It’s quite apparent that once you pass over you continue to exist, not in a physical body, but a spiritual body. All of the problems and thoughts you have on this planet drift away and you are just having an initiation period where you get to just enjoy being on the other side and seeing all of those that you have loved who were on the other side. Later you are taken and taught lessons about spirituality so that you are assigned to be a teacher, guide, or reincarnate if you have not completed everything you were supposed to in your previous life.

Even though I had studied religions and beliefs in the afterlife, it never became real to me until my communication with my father. I have absolute belief in life after death. I think this is what has opened me up as a Psychic Medium to be able to receive messages from people who are deceased.

I moved into a house in 1998 that had been custom designed by a paraplegic. He had died in that house. It only took a few days after moving in before he started manifesting his presence by turning on lights. Those who have passed on are energy and they often manifest themselves through electronics. From there a multitude of spirits started coming around. Sometimes as I would be sleeping there would be many walking around my bedroom quietly, but the sound of the carpet moving would wake me up, I could actually see them at this point, and I would ask them to please be quiet and they always cooperated. I continued to have many spirits visit me in this house.

Throughout my life Angels have manifested themselves to me. Being a gifted clairvoyant, which is the paranormal ability to obtain information about an object or an event without the use of the known senses makes it quite easy for me to see, hear, and feel angels, spirit guides, and the deceased.

One of my most incredible encounters with an Angel had to do with my deceased father. I was sitting in my living room and suddenly I saw my father walk quickly, manifesting only about ten seconds, through a wall. That in itself was quite miraculous. Next I turned my head to the left and there was a lady all dressed in white with long blond hair. We just stared at each other and it was as though we didn’t need words. I knew that she was observing me because my father wanted her to assist me as he is my spirit guide, and it was beyond his capabilities to give me the help that she could. This lasted for about one minute. We were communicating, but without words. Then she was gone. Within a week the most incredible miracles started happening for me. I know that she is one of my higher Angels and I often direct my prayers and thoughts to her. I feel her presence around me all the time.

One of my most recent astral projection experiences had to do with my best friend Kerry’s father who was dying of pancreatic cancer. Kerry confided to me that his father had a fear of death and that his time was running out. Because of my deep love and friendship with Kerry I spent three days in a state of hypnosis and took his father’s spirit to the other side. The first time I did this we were greeted by Paul Newman. I thought that was quite interesting and told Kerry about this afterwards. He told me that his father had idolized Paul Newman in life. I had no knowledge of this prior to the experience. I took his father over again two more times and on the third day he died. We know that he died happy and without fear.

There is nothing to fear about death, you’re just moving on into your next experience. Remember your loved ones who pass on are moving into a better life where there is no more suffering and rejoice that they are set free. Think of our lives rising and falling as a boat on the crest of a wave. Descending into matter through the gates of birth; now re-ascending to the invisible world through the gates of death.
