81natural-health2“The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature affects the cure.”
– Voltaire

The best thing we can do to create good health is to feel good emotionally. When we think positively, we feel good, and when we feel good, our vibration naturally rises. A high vibration means a high state of health! So whenever we’re not feeling well, it’s especially important to think positively and to do whatever will make us happy.

  • Weekly Astrological Forecast for October 16, 2017

    subscribe-horoscopes

    October 16 through October 22, 2017

    A new Moon in Libra and two planetary sign changes will make for an active week, so stay alert and keep on your toes as the days unfold. Mercury starts off the action when it leaves Libra for the more penetrating Scorpio. Under this influence, our thoughts will turn to the supernatural, occult and more spiritual side of life. Scorpio is also the sign of karma, indicating that during this three week cycle, anything you “think” can easily become reality! Thursday’s new Moon in Libra can encourage us to start new ventures or make sweeping changes, but we’ll need to proceed with caution to be sure all our ducks are in a row before making a move! Luckily we’ll have a Virgo Moon on Friday and Saturday to help us take a closer look at the details of any changes we’re considering. On Sunday, Mars will move into Libra, which is sometimes a difficult position for the planet of assertive action. While Libra appreciates a more balanced, softer approach, Mars wants to move now and repent in haste, so you could find it difficult to make any solid decisions over the next six weeks. No worries though, as it will be similar to waiting for the light to turn green. Translation? You know you’ll be moving at some point, you just have to let Spirit show you when!

    Introduction to Perceptual Intelligence: The Brain’s Secret to Seeing Past Illusion, Misperception, and Self-Deception

    by Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler.

    With the rare combination of lucid verve and solid scientific grounding evocative of Oliver Sacks or Malcolm Gladwell, Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler guides readers on a fascinating tour of the bedrock of our existence the way our senses perceive everything and everyone in the world around us.

    Dr. Brian (as he’s known to his patients) has pioneered treatments in vision correction, has published more than 100 scientific, peer-reviewed journal papers and book chapters, and is the first choice of many doctors for their own eye treatment. In his new book (October 2017), he offers a fascinating, accessible description of how we see what we see and why this affects every aspect of our lives.

    Montel Williams, whose MS (multiple sclerosis) was misdiagnosed for years, has provided a foreword and shares: “Dr. Brian has done a masterly job of exploring the underpinnings of human perception, along the way helping us understand our motivations and behavior.” He goes on to say that “Dr. Brian has taught me a lot about illness perception and why maintaining a positive outlook is critical to effective treatment and eventual outcome.”

    This is just one of the areas Dr. Brian addresses. As a surgeon and ophthalmologist who has devoted his career to the field of vision correction, he is fascinated by the connections among our five senses — sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch — and how our brains register and interpret them to distinguish reality from illusion.

    Defining Perceptual Intelligence (PI) as how we interpret and occasionally manipulate our experiences to distinguish fantasy from reality, he explains that PI relies heavily on our senses and instincts, but it is frequently influenced and distorted by our emotions and memories. As with other forms of intelligence, some people have higher PI than others, but PI can be improved with both awareness and practice and can be used to make desired changes in our lives.

    Exploring the brain’s ability to interpret and make sense of the world, he explains, with concrete examples and case studies, why our senses do not always match reality, and how we can influence the world around us through perceptions, inward and outward.

    Brian Boxer Wachler, MD, is the world’s leading authority on keratoconus, refractive surgery, and creator of the revolutionary I-Brite® Eye Whitening procedure. He has devoted his career to the field of vision correction. For two decades, he has been a pioneering doctor with a thriving career in clinical, academic, and laboratory settings. He boasts an unparalleled history of awards and accomplishments — many of which have singlehandedly changed the practice of ophthalmic surgery. He is currently the medical director of the eponymous Boxer Wachler Vision Institute in Beverly Hills and a staff physician at Los Angeles’ famed Cedars Sinai Medical Center.

    "Life happens. Life in the flow."

    We learn over time that nobody can solve our problems, but someone can guide you how to solve the problem. You may receive guidance through a teacher, a guru or even strangers that you run into every day. As we practice yoga we learn that the more we know, the less we truly know. Every day I am reminded how much I truly do not know; a very humbling experience.
    Yoga teaches me to be present. To just live for being and enjoying life as it is right NOW. Not ten minutes from now, no five days ago, but right now. We are taught to get out of our heads, to release worries and fears of the past or the future and to only live for this very moment. Presence.

    "Lead me from untruth to truth, lead me from darkness to light." ~ Buddha

    Through yoga we are reminded that we do have a dark side as well as a light side. We are not to repress the dark side, but embrace that side of our Self. We are the yin and the yang. We ultimately cleanse the dark stuff we hold inside. We shine the light on this. We must make friends with dark side. Both positive and negative balance out the whole. Daily practice refines and improves our inner vision to see our Self more clearly. We no longer need to run from fears. Face them and say I'm not running from you anymore. So much is in our heads, so much dark is only in our heads, self-doubt judgment betrayal. Yoga grounds the body so that the light and dark sides of ourselves become clear. So much is truly untrue. But as we diligently practice we are able to find the middle ground and walk our centered balanced line in life. We gain balance in centered lightheartedness. We can have harmony in both light and dark.

    "Yoga tells us that the world is actually a projection of our own thoughts and we can modify our inner world to manifest into our outer world. When our inside realm is at peace and in harmony, our outer world shines this projection back at us."
~ David, Jiva Mukti Yoga co-founder

    Yoga is observation.

    We can observe our world and see what part that is in us is begin reflected back to us. We can then see what part of us needs modification or adjustment in order to have our outer reality reflect back to us the peace, happiness and love we so greatly desire and deserve.

    Yoga is already inside of you. Happiness is there. Yoga helps you peel away the onion layers to get to the core. To freedom. The deepest Divine connection to the Ultimate Light Source.

    Come out of wanting and back into acceptance and Joy. A yogi or yogini can turn any situation into bliss. That is a yogi. Yoga is being now. Ultimate yoga is meditation. Just BE.

    Yoga is love.

    "Love is the light that dissolves all walls between souls." 
~ Paramahansa Yogananda

    Through a dedicated practice of all forms of yoga we can participate in the world with a sense of freedom, unaffected from trauma, depression, anger, etc. The freedom is balance in both.

  • Double Vision: Can Angels Help with ADD?

    three_angels-9451

    I was born on July 10, 1965. I am very psychic/intuitive and sensitive in every way. This can be burdensome and exhausting, because I take in so much visible and invisible stimuli. I do realize it is a gift, however, and I am trying to figure how I can best use it for myself and others. I also have Attention Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder, and while I can focus on the spiritual realm within, I have a hard time focusing on my job as a night auditor at a hotel. My work is very detail-oriented, and I am constantly getting interrupted by guests and the phone ringing. I get off track easily and it takes me too long to get back "in the groove" and refocus on what I was doing. It can be very overwhelming at times, but I believe I do have the potential to do a good job. I've been here for five months, and am getting pressure from management to "get it together." I am wondering what I should ask my angels/spirit guides in order to get the help I need to do a good job. Right now my intuition is telling me that I might be getting fired soon, even though many of the guests have praised me to management. Do you think angels/spirit guides can help with ADHD?

    Patty

    Dreamchaser:

    I know you don't want to hear this, but I really feel you are in the wrong job. Each one of us has to find work that suits our personal strengths and weaknesses, and your current situation is just not ideal given your ADHD issues. This work is too detail-oriented, and you are just interrupted too often. Towards the end of the shift, it is practically impossible for you to get back on track. As a result of all of this, you are under tremendous stress every time you go to work.

    Patty, you are SO good with people. The guests even comment on how kind and helpful you are. This is one of your strong suits. I think you should consider working with people instead of numbers and details.

    I am a HUGE proponent of using our guides, angels, God, helpers of all kind, etc., to help us find the perfect job for us. I am living proof of the wisdom of this approach. By now most of you know I worked as an accountant for many years. I could not stand going to work, and would hit the snooze button at least twice every morning.

    It was what most people considered a "great" job: I made a lot of money and I was "in the game." I had a good reputation for being thorough, and everyone thought I had a very bright future. I was in line to become a partner. Despite all of this, I dreaded going to work. I finally asked the Universe (and all the helpers in it) to put me where I belong, and I wound up at Psychic Chat.

    Your destiny gave birth to you; your destiny will find you if you allow it. I strongly advise you to start asking out loud for help from the Universe. Ask your angels to lead you to your perfect working situation.

    I don't want to sound naive and I'm certainly not a doctor, but I believe if you are in the right position for you, your AD/HD will not be a glaring problem. The old cliche "if you have lemons, make lemonade" keeps coming to mind. Even if you suffer from ADHD, you can find a good job for you. Instead of asking your angels to help you with your AD/HD, I would ask them to help you find the place where your unique gifts can do you and the world the greatest good. It worked for me!

    You have to ask yourself why you want to keep this job so badly. Since it's causing you so much stress, perhaps losing it would be for the best!

    I wish you the ideal career for you.

    *****

    Astrea:

    ADD and AD/HD afflict so many people now. I often wonder what happened before these conditions were so readily diagnosed. I know that you are not trying to find excuses for what's going on in your life, and that you're challenged by a very real condition.

    However, it sounds to me like you're not just a night auditor - you're the night receptionist and desk clerk too! You seem to be doing YOUR job plus two more. No wonder you get scattered with all of those interruptions.

    While I'm sure it is much more pleasant to engage in conversations with the guests than to crunch the numbers tucked away in some office, you're getting in trouble just for doing your job. Perhaps you could have a calm talk with the person who hired you and discuss moving to a full-time desk position where your talents and abilities could be put to better use.

    If the hotel hired an additional person to be the night auditor, you could stay where you're most needed and do the job you most enjoy: interacting with the guests and serving as a representative of the hotel.

    Your Guides and Angels want to support you in this, but you have to help them to help you. They're not sure what it is you want them to do. Since you feel you need some help remaining focused, here is a short ritual that may help you access the information you need.

    The Japanese hold a festival for tailors called "The Festival of Broken Needles." A shrine is built from the broken needles that tailors saved through the year. These are intended as an offering and reminder of the work the needles have performed over the course of the past twelve months.

    In honor of this festival, ask your Guides and Angels, "What are my broken needles? What tools do I rely on now?" Once you have chosen them, build a little shrine of your tools to include your Guides and Angels in your work. Burn an orange candle to represent the "harvest" or what you must reap from your job. Burn a brown candle for new duties and endeavors at work. Carefully reflect on your job and ask your Guides and Angels to continue to be with you and support you in this area of your life. Before you blow out the two candles, say a prayer of thanksgiving, and ask for the highest and the best blessings to come your way. Then be on the lookout for positive changes!

    Astrea:

    Many times in life we hear, "You will always have what you NEED, but not necessarily what you WANT." Your spirit must have needed to experience the feeling of leaving your human body, and the suggestion in the next chapter of Sylvia Brown's book was all it took to get you there.

    Even though you hadn't read it yet, your SOUL recognized the title of that chapter as something it had been seeking, and your soul, knowing that you had that reference to read after your experience, got with it and out you went!

    While I don't usually recommend her books, Sylvia Brown has a wide reaching and powerful effect on lots of people. A Gemini like you would be able to relate easily to her writing and put it to good use. Synchronicity - you gotta love it!

    I like your description of "getting caught." That's exactly what it feels like, isn't it? One minute you're free and hovering above the room, and the next minute, ZAP! back down into your corporeal form you go!

    As a little kid, I loved that "feeling of return." With practice, most of the time we can control that event, but sometimes, when our physical ears hear a distracting noise or something else occurs to knock us back into reality, back we go. With practice you will be able to control your return better.

    I find it interesting that you were visiting your mother-in-law and not someone in your own genetic family. Evidently, you and your husband got married for reasons that are even deeper than love. His family's interest in "psychic stuff" will nurture your children in such matters and help them to grow into their own abilities.

    You'll never have to be concerned that when your daughter visits them, she'll be discouraged from exploring her own psychic life and power. My parents encouraged me to develop my psychic senses in a time when it wasn't nice to even discuss such things in public. Heck, it's STILL not considered a great topic at the dinner table in some families!

    Your kids will get to talk about it ALL and ask questions and read and study. This is going to give them such an edge in life! Talk with your husband about how you want to present this to your kiddos, so that you are united in your approach and ready to tell them their experiences are all natural and okay.

    A word or two of warning: Geminis often have difficulty staying grounded in REAL LIFE. Don't get so strung out on your ASTRAL life that you neglect what you're doing here on Earth.

    You are at the beginning of a long journey to learn where your power really lies. Try to be patient with this process and take your time.

81be_yourself“You cannot fix yourself because you are not broken. The more you try to fix, the more you find to fix.
Only wholeness heals.”

– Alan Cohen

I know many people who have had the experience of hating how they look in photographs, only to discover years later in looking at those snapshots again that they looked wonderful! The difference is merely one of perspective. We are so hard on ourselves in the now. What if we stopped seeking personal growth and self-improvement, and tried to relax and just like ourselves as we already are? What might life be like then? Perhaps instead of stalling as we might fear, we would actually discover that the path to enlightenment isn’t found by striving, but rather by seeing the perfection in what already exists.
