When my office moved to Bell Trinity Square, I was pretty annoyed. I had loved the place where I had been working for the past 4 years. We moved to this office about 1 year before me starting this spiritual journey. The space was nice and the grounds behind the building were even nicer. In the middle was a beautifully stoned Labyrinth with trees and bushes all around it; it was a place of peace in the middle of a chaotic, busy city. I had never taken advantage of this Labyrinth because I had no idea what it was for except that I saw people walking around it here and there; I figured it was just a maze that people walked to pass the time on their lunch hours. Not long after having my first spiritual experience (which was about a year after our move) I went to the Labyrinth Continue reading
Happiness is something almost all of us strive for in our lives and it’s something many of us don’t have a lot of and for some, never have. The definition of happiness is simply the state of being happy and the definition of happy is feeling or showing pleasure or contentment. How people see being happy varies across the board and different things make them happy; money, travel, children, cars, meditation, friends, flying and the list goes on and on. Some people don’t even know what makes them happy, all they know is they are flying through life on autopilot waiting or hoping for happiness one day, whatever form that may come in and that was pretty much me until about 3 years ago.
Unfortunately my father passed away when I had just turned 13 and my mother and I didn’t have the greatest relationship I guess. I ran away from her house and of course got busted by the police and returned back home only to leave when I turned 16 and never went back (though we still do talk). I was sexually abused Continue reading
On the 21st anniversary of my father’s death, I decided to head to Facebook and post a tribute to my dad. It was almost midnight and I was alone that night as Shaun and Kinsley were with his mom for the night. I submitted the post and sat thinking about him for a few minutes. As I just kind of stared, with no real thought, I hear the words ‘Take a picture’. It wasn’t audible and in my ear or coming from someone’s mouth, it was kind of like a thought that someone literally put into my mind, and I heard it.
At first I was confused – why in the world would I tell myself to take a picture and what am I supposed to take a picture Continue reading
A friend of mine and I had a falling out not long before my wedding. 2 years had passed and I reached out to her to just squash the issue and from there on, it was like nothing was wrong.
During the time of our absence from each other, she of course made other friends. She mentioned to me, not long after we started chatting again, that one of her friends had passed away in May (I think). As I’m those “if they want you to know, they’ll tell you” so I didn’t ask any questions as to what happened. I knew she was sad about it but didn’t want to push.
One night while we were out, she out of the blue asked me what I thought about what happens to people when they die.
“Are they just gone or do they go somewhere else?” she really wanted Continue reading
A friend and I had went out one evening and though we had been drinking, I was fairly sober as it wasn’t one of normal outings which often involve 20 drinks and Chinese food at a restaurant in Chinatown. I was waiting for the streetcar to come and since it was so late (around 3:00 AM), the next streetcar wasn’t coming for a while so I decided I was going to walk to the next streetcar stop until I saw one coming – they’re only a couple of minutes of a walk between each stop.
About 15 minutes of walking later, I found Tim Horton’s, grabbed a tea and continued my walk. Of course, a streetcar had passed by while I was in the store. Another 30 minutes of walking later, almost 3 blocks to my house, I noticed a van that was stopped at the side of the street in which I was walking but by the time I had noticed it, I was Continue reading
One night on a full moon, I was yet again pondering on what my life had become. Asking why I had such a desire to be a medium yet I wasn’t even close to being what I thought it was going to be like. I was frustrated and couldn’t understand why the universe wasn’t giving me what I wanted. I start talking to my people asking them if I was on the right track and if so I wanted a sign. I sat, and sat and about 10 minutes and finally said, “OK, if you don’t want to give me a sign, I’ll wait and if you want to give me one tonight, that’s fine, too. Just don’t scare me!” So I left it at that.
Seeing as it was a full moon, I decide to lay out all of my stones and crystals to re-energize. I lay them out and head to bed. The next morning I woke up and headed directly to my stones. I don’t know why I headed right to my stones, usually I head right to the bathroom before anything but to the stones I walked. My eyes immediately gravitated to one stone in particular which Continue reading
Everyone has intuition. As a young child, it’s strong but society helps us diminish our ability as we get older by beliefs, thoughts and ignorance. Regardless of the reasoning’s, it’s simply sad that such a powerful and amazing gift that has been given to you, is used to little or not at all. The less people use it, the less powerful it is and it’s unfortunate because it is such an amazing gift. I don’t remember having any intuition when I was younger, for whatever reason. It wasn’t until I turned 33 that a spark ignited inside of me and I realized how powerful mine was.
Here is my first experience with the power of my Intuition. My “just knowing”.
After my father had passed just weeks after I turned 13, I went to live with Continue reading
