It isn’t your fault you’re ill

Illness happens to everyone. Sure, it helps to lead a healthy life, but severe physical trials can strike anyone at any time. People ask me if they are to blame for their poor health.

Intuitive abilities aren’t evil

My transcendent night with the spirits in the Goldfield Hotel opened my third eye. Suddenly, I found myself receiving divine messages, and started seeing and hearing energies. I thought I’d lost my mind. But even worse, I’d believed I was destined for hell. Why? Because a church I’d once belonged to preached the evils [...]

Grieve even though you know your crossed over loved ones are well

The more you release, the more you’ll receive

Free will presents the illusion of power The Supreme Being gave us free will—the opportunity to choose our own way of thinking and acting.

Living in faith means embracing the unknown

When I was 20, I planned my entire life. I’d marry at 25, have my first child at 27 and my second at 29. Later, I’d own a successful public relations firm and easily juggle my blissful marriage and kind children. And that’s how it turned out. NOT! Instead, my life veered in directions I [...]

But miring yourself in depression and projecting your fears on an already-tragic situation won’t help anyone. Not those facing monumental challenges. And, it certainly won’t improve your well-being.
