Struggle, Strife, and the Stinkin’ Thinkin’ that Often Causes It

How much stinkin’ thinkin’ have you been up to lately?

You know what I mean . . .

  • Complaining about the lemons the Universe seems to have sent to you recently,
  • Having an interaction with someone that didn’t go the way you were expecting and obsessing or gossiping about how “wrong” the other person is,
  • Getting all caught up in how you feel victimized by “the system” – whether that be government, your job, or something else,
  • Immediately jumping to conclusions about why someone said or did something that contains a negative opinion about the action or the person, or insists that it was evil forces or some diabolical scheme to keep you down,
  • Saying “I could never,” or “It will never happen,” or “that’s not how life works,” or some other statement that shuts down all the possibilities the Universe is sending your way,
  • Thinking, saying, or doing something that results in you feeling bad,
  • Getting angry or upset about what those people are saying about the politician, political party, religion, or other group you feel aligned with,
  • You get the idea.

Its not easy walking the high road. But it is required if you want to heal your pain, live in joy, have harmonious relationships, achieve your heart-felt desires, or experience enlightenment.

Most people live in struggle.

And then they complain about it . . .  


Focusing on what you don’t want only causes more of the same.  If you know anything about the Law of Attraction, you already know that.

Instead of treating the next little disaster in your life like a horrible “bad” thing, why not look at it for what it is – a lesson.  Perhaps you are in the middle of a lesson about learning to flow with life, forgiveness, being kind to others, overcoming fear, staying calm despite your circumstances, letting go of people or situations that disempower you, cause you confusion, regret, or stress.

There are a lot of lessons in the classroom called earth. Every moment of every day is there for you to see who you are and what you believe. Every person you encounter has been very strategically placed in your path for you to experience something. Each one is a gift – not a curse.

Life happens. Hiccups in plans happen. Relationship issues happen. People have bad days, they misinterpret the meaning behind your words, they often see life from their own perspective and it is usually not the same perspective that you hold.

You can blame something or someone for all the struggles in your life – or you can simply realize that life unfolds the way that it does – perfectly. You can perceive situations as being evil and dark. Or you can choose to accept what is and respond calmly to whatever shows up in your life.

I believe that all things happen for a reason. And I also believe that I am Divinely guided in every moment. I trust that when one door closes, another one will open. And the other one is always better than I could have figured out on my own. I try to look at unexpected hiccups in plans as opportunities. And I try to learn from them. What could I do differently next time? What did I learn about myself, someone else, or how life or business works by experiencing this?

The bigger your dreams, the more you have to change and walk the high road. I’m not talking about just embracing new concepts with your logical mind and trying to force new habits of behavior. I’m talking about fundamental permanent shifts physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. You also have to shift octaves vibrationally. If you were already the person you need to become in order to attain your desires, then those desires would already be realized.

There are a few caveats to what I just said – like Divine timing and how to know if a desire is in your highest and best interest, or whether it is simply your ego’s need for recognition, approval, or something else. We’ll save those for next time . . .

Have a deLightful day,


P.S. One of the fastest ways to get to the root of your issues and raise your vibration is a daily practice of deep meditation. Peering Through the Veil offers insight into numerous forms of meditation and how to make each meditation deeper and more profound.

Psychic Healing Meditation

David J Adams(c) David J. Adams


Greetings Dear Friends

Our Spirit friends have been telling us that from time to time this year they will be lifting ‘Pearls of wisdom from the past’ to our awareness, that we may look at them again through our awakened eyes. On Monday evening the Pearl of Wisdom was a total meditation gifted to me and through me back in 1992 by Beloved Germain.  I offer this Meditation to you below for your discernment. Please feel free to work with it or share it as you desire.





Greetings Beloved Ones

Change is always a time of much turbulence, a time when emotional clouds all too often conceal the true worth and value of the new, and as yet unseen, road ahead.  Some change is of your own volition, and some a reaction to moves that others make, each has its own blessings and its own problems.  The only constant is change itself, and no one can remain aloof from it unless they have determined to turn aside from their journey of growth.

Allow yourselves the emotions of the moment, but do not grip them so tight that you prevent the flow of the life essence within them, for the emotions themselves have a vital role to play in the growth process, as they allow you to see yourself in new and different ways.

It is important to realise, however, that changes currently in evidence are not solely of an individual nature, but changes to the fabric of the Earth reality itself.  This will become clear as the emotions are worked through.  Have faith in yourselves and the vision of Light that brings you together at this time, as both have a role to play in the tomorrows for each of you.

Now, however, we have much to do together, for the many Dimensions cry out for the healing energies of LOVE and LIGHT, and what we create in one Dimension flows through to all the others.   Blessings be upon all Light bearers.

I ask you to focus on the four crystals that lie before you, draw each in turn into your aura and into your physical being.  The CLEAR QUARTZ for clarity of vision,  the AMETHYST for balance of the energies, the ROSE QUARTZ for the empowerment of the Love essence and the CELESTITE for the unification of all the crystal vibrations.  Feel yourself begin to pulse and vibrate with the crystal energy.  Allow that feeling to grow and expand until the whole room is alive with the spark of your Loving Light.  Ask for that energy to flow to all parts of the world, to touch and empower all other Light workers within your human Dimension and within all other Dimensions.  Your Loving Light will become a part of each and every one of those Light workers, and through them become a part of their Planetary healing also.  So the circle grows.  So the Mantle of healing is strengthened and expanded ever wider.

Now, bring your attention back into the centre of the room.  See in your mind’s eye the healing table that has been placed there.  Upon the table you see a person resting and relaxing, and you know that they are awaiting your healing touch.  Imagine that you are approaching them, joining your aura with theirs and preparing to share with them the most powerful healing that has ever flowed from you.  Open yourself to the infinite power of Cosmic energies, call upon your guides, call upon the healing energies of all your own multi Dimensional aspects, call upon the Loving, healing energies of Light Beings of all Dimensions.

Each of you will find a modality appropriate to the healing you need to perform, for each of you will be working on a different person with different healing needs.  Focus on those needs. Embrace them and caress them with all the Love you can create.  Leave no part of the person untouched by your Love and Light, the physical, the emotional, the spiritual and most importantly, the Soul.  Feel the energy pulsing through your hands and through your Heart, let it flow unfettered into the person on the table. Bathe them with the Rainbows of Light that form the divinity within each one of you.  Love them unconditionally. Now begin your Healing.

Now, disconnect your aura from that of the person on the table and return to your original position. The healing table and the energy body relaxing upon it fades from sight.  Have you enjoyed the healing you have just shared ?. Too often you give Love and healing to others and ignore your own need of that same Loving , healing energy.  Tonight, however, you have given yourself the benefit of that beautiful Loving healing energy, for the person on the table was YOU.  It is important from time to time that you give YOURSELF Love, give YOURSELF healing, give YOURSELF recognition of your true worth, and I ask you to make this a regular part of your healing regimen.

The healing of the Planet begins within each one of you, nurture the seeds of your own Divinity, for you can only give that which is within yourself.  Let that be LOVE and LIGHT of infinite power.  Blessings be.

I embrace you with the Rainbow of my Love.

I am the GERMAIN, the I AM THAT I AM

How Do You Stay Focused Amidst the Chaos?

AnnaMariah Nau Bold Bodacious Jewelry(c) AnnaMariah Nau

Chaos? What Chaos? What are you talking about?

If you have to ask that, then you’ve been sleeping somewhere in a cave for awhile or have reached a state of enlightenment way above the rest of us.

Almost everyone I talk to is experiencing chaos in their lives or watching the lives of those around them spin off into a dozen directions. If it’s just the lives around you, you’re probably lucky, but the consensus from most people I’ve been talking to is that most of us are feeling extremely challenged, overwhelmed and having a very difficult time keeping focused.

There is one combination of stones that is especially good for combating the feelings of chaotic overwhelm and that is smoky quartz and onyx. This is a good example of the whole far surpassing the sum of the parts.

Smoky quartz is grounding, removes negativity, helps with manifestation of dreams and inspirations and enhances organization (and that’s just for a start).

Black onyx brings increased inner strength, focused attention, willpower, discipline and wise decision making. But the magic really happens when they are brought together. They merge into an energy that is much more powerful than either stone together.

I’ve intuitively and visually loved this combination but was surprised recently when a customer put one of the necklaces on and asked me to tune into what it was doing for her. My answer surprised even me when I truly stopped to look at what I could see. The power of onyx and smoky together brings clarity to your vision. Once the vision is clear, they help your energy connect with what looks almost like tendrils to the things, events, people, energies that you need to bring that vision to manifestation.

Since that time I’ve sold quite a few necklaces and beaded chains in smoky/onyx and a few people have reported almost magical synchronicities happening in their lives where the resources or people they needed just appeared almost as if by magic. Yes, they were looking for ideas or solutions, but they felt that the gemstones helped them to be focused enough to be in the space to recognize the opportunities when they came.

If you are an HSP (highly sensitive person) or empath, this is a good combination to wear as well, especially in combination with a Shield. Negative energy is deflected and absorbed and a sense of calm and happiness can come in its place.

Smoky quartz also absorbs electromagnetic smog and pollution. This is a great stone to wear if you are extremely sensitive to EMF radiation or are going through a period where you are spending extra long hours in front of a computer or on your cell phone. If you need to have x-rays, radiation therapy, MRI, or are going through airport scanners wear smoky. (You may not be able to wear it during, but put on immediately after it can help absorb the radiation.)

If you are desirous of stepping out of the feeling of spinning through chaos, try a little smoky and onyx and see what happens. Please let me know what happens for you [email protected] I’ll be looking for your email.

AnnaMariah is a gemstone empath, Reiki Master, and guardian of the stones who listens to the guidance of the stones to create transformational gemstone jewelry. Each stone is reactivated with the original energy of creation and is tasked to assist the wearer or recipient of its energy to awaken to full consciousness of who they are and what is theirs to do. In this way you step out of the darkness and into your full light of being.

Sacred Space

Millie Stefani(c) Millie Stefani

Our homes are like an extension of ourselves.  Maintain them respect them and appreciate them and they will serve you well and provide shelter from the storms of life.

Treat everything within your home with respect and gratitude for its usefulness and the beauty and harmony it provides, and you will have balance in your day to day environment.

Be conscious of what you are doing and how you do it.  Haphazardness often times results in clutter and damage.

As you develop mindfulness you can appreciate how this extends to all of your world and its many abundant creations.

Choose wisely what you bring into your home, your space, your environment. Nurture it, maintain it and love it, and it will serve you gratefully, respectfully and lovingly.
