One of the great benefits in believing in a higher power or angels is the peace of mind that one obtains when life brings us stressful situations. When we try to take on big challenges or walk the dark night of fear alone, we begin to feel overwhelmed and hopeless. But when we have faith that we are not alone, it brings a certain peace and clarity to our minds over time; and this is also when we get flashes of deeper insight that bring us solutions to our problems and we even see miracles happen. There is no need to go it alone and try to carry the weight of the world on your own shoulders; for there is a force greater than yourself out there. All you have to do is reach out to it and it will reach back... Often times, help comes when we're not to proud to ask for it.
In my personal spiritual journey, I have noticed something that I believe is very important. And that is; when I try to manifest something or obtain healing through spiritual means, it seems to come to me more quickly, faster and easily if I turn the issue over to a power higher than myself. I may entrust it to God, the angels or some Saint or ascended master; either way, it seems to have very positive results. There seems to be quite a difference in the outcome, (for me anyway,) between this method and perhaps some other techniques that involve my own personal will power, energy or elaborate magical ritual that tries to influence the universe. Perhaps there is something to the old saying, "let go and let God." Maybe most of us struggle with the idea of manfistation and healing because we get in our own way and try to "make" things happen by our own power. Perhaps we need to get out of our own way and hand the details of our needs over to a higher power that is wiser than ourselves... This seems to be the key ingredient that I have stumbled upon anyhow. Maybe it is the key that will unlock the door for some of you as well.
Wouldn't it be great if every person in the world just decided to do the right thing? It's strange how the simplest solutions to peace and prosperity are the ones that most individuals say cannot be done.
When you wake up in the morning, is your first thought about all the things you have to do that day? When you go to bed at night, are your last thoughts before sleep about all the things you have to do tomorrow? And how do you spend the hours between these two book ends of the mind? Do you ever think about the fleeting moments of magic you miss in a day because your mental eyes are never fixed on the present moment and all its wonders? Your very next step could be in a new direction, life doesn't have to be spent on the wheel; Yet some people spend their entire existence on the wheel because they feel it is taking them somewhere important. But is it? The true answer to that question lies within yourself; your soul knows if the life you are living is nourishing your whole being.... or not.
Religion is just man's way of trying to understand and define something that is beyond his limited scope of material reality. Instead of arguing, fighting and going to war over our beliefs, we should be happy that most of us believe in something at all. Maybe if we all came together in an honest and humble way, we could put all the pieces together and get a greater picture of the Divine.
Let us all pause this holiday week and contemplate what we are truly thankful for. The day that America will be celebrating this Thursday is about more than just turkey and pumpkin pie. It should be about remembering all the many blessings in our lives... and this tradition can reach beyond the boundaries of a country; it can be a tradition that the entire world participates in.
"Cast off fear and anxiety; do you not know that we walk with you at all times. The love and power that surrounds you is far beyond your comprehension. And God is not far off, the vail that separates the worlds is so very thin. You may not be able to see beyond it with the physical eye but heaven is as close as your next breath. Live your days in peace and rest at night in the serene comfort that your angels are always encamped round' about you. Those who are for you are far greater than any challenge that might befall you. Even death is but a doorway that leads the soul back to the land of its origin. To think of such prospects as dying may fill you with great fear, but in the end you will look upon it as a something that was very easily overcome. There is truly never any reason to fear whatsoever... you are safe, loved and protected at all times."
On November 15th, 1979, I experienced something unexplainable that changed the direction of my life forever. It was on that day thirty three years ago that I experienced what many call an angelic encounter. To commemorate that day, I have written A Prayer For Angelic Healing and have made it available on Amazon.com ... When I first entered into the digital publishing market, I used to put out electronic prayer cards that contained a prayer for healing, heavenly help etc. I thought that it was a great way for people who collect prayers to have some of the classics as well as some great modern prayers on their electronic devices wherever they may go. Many of those electronic prayer cards are still selling in great volumes today and are an abvious source of strength and comfort to many. Thus I thought that it would be a great way to honor the angelic kingdom and my own guardian angel by writing this prayer and making the healing power of the angels available to all.... May the angels touch each and every one of your lives today in miraculous ways.
This is a non-denominational prayer for angelic healing that
allows every person, no matter their faith or beliefs, to tap into the healing
power of the angels. The prayer card contains instructions on saying the prayer
and the prayer for angelic healing. Please note that this prayer was written and
designed by a certified angelic healer and has been blessed and infused with
angelic energies before publication; this will give those who use the prayer an
extra healing boost upon reciting the words.
If you need healing today, ask Archangel Raphael to bring his curative energy into your physical body. You can do this by simply stating your need, and then ask Raphael to completely heal you of the malady. Then close your eyes and imagine a spiritual portal opening in your third eye chakra, which is located between and just above your eyebrows. This portal is allowing you to open up and be receptive to the angelic realm... Then just sit back and wait for the healing session to begin; this can happen by having vivid imagery start to play out in your mind, a healing presence, bodily sensations, gentle voices speaking to you, or even a full fledged angelic visitation. There are many ways in which you may experience healing from Raphael, and the experience will always be personal and different for each individual. The important thing is that you sincerely desire to make contact and be healed. During this session, you may light a candle, place angel items around the room where you will be conducting the session.. or even hold a favorite crystal or angel article.
Sam Jordan drove down the barren highway as the dawn began to
break over the horizon. The sun inched over the distant hills, sending a splash
of color across the October sky. It was three days before Halloween, and Sam
hoped that the nightmare world he was now living in would return to normal
after the passing of the day that celebrated the macabre. He watched intently
as the sun began to climb higher into the heavens, and then turned the hazy
yellow color that it had always turned since the earthquakes hit. The sky
turned grey and dark, like they sometimes did on dismal overcast days. The
black clouds with fiery linings then began to crowd the atmosphere and the cold
winds began to blow. It looked as if the world was dying and Sam wondered if
this was perhaps the end of time.
It had all started
about three weeks ago when there were massive earthquakes being reported from
all over the world. There were quakes in places that never had earthquakes
before; then there was one colossal quake that shook the entire globe. Everyone
thought that this was the moment that the doomsday prophets had been speaking
of for so long. Many expected that there would be tidal waves, tsunamis and
volcanic eruptions as the earth underwent a major pole shift. But the poles
never shifted, and the extinction level events never took place, at least not
in the way that everyone thought they would. Everyone seemed to breathe a
collective sigh of relief when the termed Globe Quake didn’t send all of
humanity the way of the dinosaurs. But then something perhaps even more
horrible transpired; the ground split open and the dead began to rise from
their long buried tombs.
Earthquakes rock the world, the sun turns a pale yellow and
strange weather patterns ensue. The inhabitants of planet earth believe that the
apocalypse is near; but the end of the world does not occur in a way in which
anyone would suspect. When the ground opens up and the corpses of the dead rise
up and begin to feed on the living, a new kind of terror is born upon the dying
In the midst of all the horror, Sam Jordan and his wife Angel
travel the desolate roads in order to take refuge with Sam's family in
Greenville, New York. But upon arriving home, the dead are not the only threat
as Sam's abusive father, Willard, begins to place increasing demands upon his
trapped family. As a religious fanatic, Willard believes that an event known as
the rapture will occur at any moment; thus he demands that his family convert to
his religion or be exiled into the dismal world outside where the dead await
their next feast of human flesh. The Jordan household then becomes a prison
where reason is abandon and freedom of choice is not an option for any who may
wish to dwell there.
"I am a big fan of the zombie genre; but when I
wrote the Rapture of Willard, I wanted to give it a different kind of feel. I
didn't want to make it about the typical group of survivors or military
personnel trying to rebuild society after the zombie apocalypse. I wanted to
trap the reader behind barricaded doors with the characters to experience the
events that transpire there. I also didn't want the zombies to be so much in
your face as I wanted them to be a looming threat whose presence is felt
throughout the story. There has been so much done and so much repeated in this
genre that I just wanted to give it a fresh kind of spin. If I had to describe
this project I would say it is diffinately different and kind of strange with a
splash of subtle dark humor; yet it also has its classic zombie story moments
sprinkled in here and there. The Rapture Of Willard was a short story that
eventually evolved into a novellette; it really was an experimental piece for me
and I hope people will enjoy it. " Paul James Caiden

Right before Halloween and the big storm I had written that I had an announcement that I wanted to make on the blog. So here it is; I am happy to announce the launching of my own book publishing company proudly called Mind's Eye Books. This is something that I had wanted to do for quite some time now and it has finally all come together. My next book, The Rapture Of Willard, will be released under Mind's Eye Books and will hopefully hit the internet next week sometime. I will keep you posted on the details.
Today, let us send our prayers and thoughts to all those who have been devastated by Hurricane Sandy. If just a couple of days without power can be trying for the average person; I can only imagine what the poor people feel that have been flooded out, homes ruined and still in the dark and cold. May the angels walk with and comfort them all.
