AN ANGEL WILL GUIDE US HOME




    Life can be challenging, and sometimes it can knock you flat on your back. Sometimes, when we are suffering, we do it alone. Those whom we thought would be there to support us, are nowhere to be found. When you find yourself in this kind of position, do not despair. You have helpers around you who will never leave you or forsake you. These helpers are your personal angelic guides. They have been with your soul before its conception upon this earth. Speak to them when you are in trouble. Ask questions when you don't have the answers. Ask for help when no one else is there to assist you. Ask for comfort when you're feeling fearful or alone. They will reach out, they will respond. But you must be receptive to the ways in which they will answer you. They may come to you in a dream. You may hear an audible voice speaking to you from out of nowhere. It may be an inner voice, telling you something that you need to hear. They may speak to you for the words of a song, a sentence or paragraph in a book or magazine. Something you hear in a commercial or TV show may be pertinent to your situation. You may see something in nature that just brings the answer to your consciousness or comfort to your soul. It is possible that they may even appear to you with a physical visitation. The ways are endless in which they communicate with us. You just have to have the eyes to see, and the ears to hear. Speak to your angels, they are listening; and they will answer.

THE PROOF DOESN'T PROVE ANYTHING, OR SO SOME SAY




    We live in a day and age where everyone wants proof of everything. Yet, many times, when you give them sufficient proof they still say that it proves nothing. This is especially true when it comes to spiritual or metaphysical matters. It's as if some people make up their minds about a certain thing and no evidence to the contrary can ever change their thinking. These are the kinds of people that sneer at, and even insult those whom they think are less educated than themselves. Yet their own facts are faulty and even in error. Just as an example, a number of these individuals will scoff at Christians and tell them that Jesus was a myth and that he never existed. But did you know, that there is no serious historian who will actually agree with that view. Even those historians who are nonreligious shake their heads at the nonsensical notion that many of the new hipster academics are perpetuating.

    If some folks are so brazen as to deny actual history, how will you ever be able to convince them that their is substance to your faith, and legitimacy to your personal experiences? The answer is, you can't. But you also can't let the nay sayers harpoon your belief system with their big words, endless discourses and so called facts. Remember, most of these individuals are cherry picking the evidences for their own belief, or non- belief, and turning a blind eye to many facts that contradict their point of view. Just as an example, I once had a conversation with two gentlemen on the Internet on the topic of life after death. Neither of these individuals believed in such a thing, and referred to God as the Santa Claus in the sky and the afterlife as a fairytale paradise. For their benefit, I painstakingly looked up two articles on the Internet that I had read about quantum physicists who believe they are on the cusp of proving that consciousness survives the state of death. The scientists involved in these studies were from prominent universities and some were considered as heavyweights in the field of quantum theory. I also provided them with links to articles, written by actual scientists and medical doctors who had some very interesting things to say about the near-death experience. In the end, both of these individuals told me that they were very familiar with quantum physics and that all the scientists involved in the study were quacks. And the scientists and medical doctors who studied and wrote extensively about the near-death experience, were just given a hearty... "LMFA" on the computer screen.

    So, if a couple of guys working in an office, claim to know better than the actual quantum physicists; where do we take the conversation with such people? The answer, you don't take it anywhere. Because I have had many very long and tedious conversations of this caliber, with people both on and off the Internet. I have presented them with quotes from historians, scientific research, and words from some of our best scholars and theologians. But none of it made any difference. The personal opinion overrode the facts, even though their mouths kept spewing the words, science and proof.

    Why write about such a topic today? The reason is, I have heard many stories of spiritual people becoming confused and even driven to tears by these relentless debaters with their so-called educated arguments against things of the spiritual nature. Maybe someone reading this blog today has had that experience themselves, or know someone who has. If so, there's one thing you need to know; and that is, these people do not have all of the facts and no matter what you tell them or what evidence you give them, they will sneer at it and say that it is a forgery, quackery or just plain BS. It doesn't matter what kind of impressive names of scientists or historians you give them. They will shrug their shoulders, and tell you that they're well educated in these particular fields and the proofs you have given them were written by a bunch of delusional people.

    What can we conclude with then, if the people in the laboratories and libraries whose names have appeared in important pieces of literature and journals are quacks and delusional; the rest of us must be pretty feeble then, in the eyes of these arrogant individuals. But don't let them frustrate you, damage your faith or reduce you to tears. Understand the kind of mind you're dealing with in these situations, and simply walk away. If you're like me, and find it difficult to walk away, just present them with a stack of well researched evidence and leave it at that. If they refute it and say that they know better, tell them to come talk to you when they are ready to stop fooling themselves and are brave enough to have actually read what you have given them. Because the truth of the matter is, many times they have not read what you have given them at all. They perhaps skimmed the title and content. Just like the religious person whom they accuse of being afraid to find out that there is no God, they are very much afraid to find out that there might be one. Either that, or they are educated fools whose rendition of critical thinking is to be hypercritical of everyone else's beliefs and opinions. Either way, they're not worth getting upset over.

PSYCHIC READINGS AVAILABLE TO ALL




    All psychic readings, distance healing sessions and spiritual counseling will now be done on a donation basis only. This means, that you only pay what you can afford or what you think the services were worth. And don't worry, if you're unable to pay for spiritual services, I will still assist you in whatever way that you need. Spiritual help and healing should be available to all people; the door should not be closed on some because they cannot afford the high prices that some charge.

    I chose this direction in my life to help people and bring healing and light into their lives. And so I am taking my private practice in the direction that my heart dictates, not what the "business" says I should do to make a profit. My services page on the blog will have all the details for those interested. The page name has also changed. It is no longer, The Fortune Tellers Parlor... It has been renamed, Angel Messages. I hope these changes will be a blessing to many!

A DISTANT THUNDER




    I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has read and shared the blog over the years. As most of you know, the articles here have generally been pretty lightweight, and mostly positive and uplifting. But over the years, much has changed in our world and not all is as positive as we would like it to be. I have always had an inquiring mind, and have done much research in the areas of religion, politics and the social trends in our world. Some of the things I have discovered have been both sad and anger inspiring. The lies and deception which permeate our governments, our religious systems, classrooms and society are unprecedented; and the voices that refute these untruths appear to be few.

    I feel the time has come where some of these things must be addressed on the blog. The ultimate message of the Minds Eye will always be one of spirituality and faith. But I, we, cannot afford to bury our heads in the sand anymore while the world is crumbling around us. If there is one thing that true spirituality calls all of us to be, it is a voice of truth in a world enshrouded with lies. As the old quote says, in order for evil to win, good people just need to do nothing. I feel that I do not want to do nothing anymore. That is not to say that the blog will be a continuous blurb of dreary facts and hopeless statistics. But occasionally, it will tackle some stronger issues that are affecting our lives and world. Again, I reiterate, the blog will continue to be spiritual and uplifting. But sometimes uplifting is to know the truth when no one else is speaking the truth. I believe that knowledge is power, and we have been stripped of that power for far too long.

    My goal is to plant the seed of integrity into as many minds and hearts as possible. I cannot, in good conscience, be silent on certain matters anymore. I hope you will all continue to read the blog and take this journey with me... This is the prelude of a distant thunder.... Blessings.

I BELIEVE




    I have studied and sampled many spiritual paths in my life. But no matter what road I may have travelled, or what label I had put on myself, there is one thing that I have always believed. And that is, that there will be a final day of judgment for the inhabitants of the earth. Most all religions have taught the concept of the judgment of the soul after death, and the judgment of humanity as a whole. The imagery may be different, but the idea behind these teachings is all the same: and that is, that each of us will receive payment for what we have done in this life. Not all rewards are the same, the murder and the terrorist will not receive the same compensation as the saint or the one who truly has goodness in their hearts. We may look at our world at this point, and be dismayed about what is happening in the political arena, the wars, all of the many evils done by man on both a large and smaller personal scale. But these things will not last forever. I truly believe that one day, reality will open before our very eyes, and mankind will see the world beyond this world and know that its greed, killing and heartlessness was a grievous mistake. I believe in the end, it will be as the Bible says, many people's hearts will fail them because of fear of what they see coming upon the earth. None of us really know how these things will take place or play out but rest assured, it is coming in some form, one day. Therefore we should not fret about the misdeeds of man... We should also be more mindful of our own actions in our personal lives. What we do does matter, and it is those actions of love that count the most...

INNER CHILD




    Too many times, we get caught up in the affairs of this earthen realm and rob ourselves of the simple joys in life. We act like all of eternity hinges on our hectic schedules and to do lists. As we continue this pattern day by day, we become anxious creature of stressful habit that loses its ability to play and see the wonder in our world. If you're living this kind of lifestyle, ask yourself, am I truly happy? Do I feel fulfilled in my daily life? When I lay down at night, do I have a sense of inner peace and feel thankful for my blessings? Do I look forward to tomorrow and the little plans I've made to season life with happiness and excitement? Is there anything I'm looking forward to, or am I in a constant state of worry and planning and have no time for amusements in my thoughts and life?

    Don't take yourself too seriously, if you do, you only succeed in stifling the energy of your soul. You will put stress on your body and be more susceptible to illness. Your mind will become stagnant, and you will become a statue of a person; meaning, you will be the same, unchanging, distracted and negative person every day of your life and bring no joy to yourself or those around you. No human being truly wishes to live this way. We want to enjoy life, we want to live, love, laugh and play. And you can only do this by letting your soul have free expression in your life by letting your inner child come out to play. You cannot let your cynical mind tell you that you're being immature, or perhaps wanting to do something that is only for children. If you do this, you've already defeated yourself and handicapped your soul... Don't let the world turn you into another lackluster drone who is constantly preoccupied by some worrisome thought, and getting little to no joy out of life. Open your heart, your mind and let your inner child lead you in the direction of your authentic self.

    And of course, this does not mean that we become people given to flights of fancy and take no responsibility for life. Of course, there are things we all must do in a day to survive and make a living. But when we become so mired in those things that there is little to no room for anything else, then we have an obvious problem. Life is about balance, and living to extremes on either side of the fence is not healthy or realistic. It takes some honest self evaluation, being mindful of our schedules and planning to keep things in a more healthy balanced state. But it can be done, and after while it will become second nature. As my grandmother used to say, "another day, another dollar, but make sure you use some of those dollars to make yourself happy." Life was not designed to drown us, it was designed to be lived.
