Does Prayer Really Work?

 

61903882-praying-hands.jpg

Hi everyone, I hope you are well.I read an interesting blog recently which caught my attention. It was written by an ordained minister. He believed prayer didn’t heal, but let people collectively know they care as a community. He believed that God has a plan. There is nothing anyone can do but offer support. I thought about it, and I decided that as a spiritual person, I am disappointed in his negativity and lack of perspicacity. He missed the essence of prayer itself.

Now, I know that some things are part of destiny. Yes, people die, bad things happen. But I also believe we often have a choice. I have been told by many people who’ve crossed over, that you have several times that has been written in your chart for you to leave or to stay. I myself, can think of at least two times that I could’ve been killed. I could just let it happen, but I chose to stay. Maybe to write this article like I am right now.

That’s where prayer comes in. It’s positive energy being focused in on a person or thing. We are a piece of God, with the capability to create or destroy. Don’t tell me positive prayer doesn’t work; study after study shows it does. What I think happens in prayer is two-fold: 1. It’s positive energy helps heal and 2. It’s about knowing someone cares about you, and you are needed on the planet. Prayer gives you the will to fight adversity.

I know positive energy heals. As a avid gardener, I’ve seen the affects of mean and negative energy on plants. I even did a study where I watched a plant die by saying cruel things to it. There have been numerous studies done that support this also. We can help make things happen by aligning ourselves for the good or the bad. All that positive energy has to go somewhere, and it goes to the recipient, in the form of healing or the will to live.

Prayer also sends energy to the person who is thinking of opt out, and not wanting to be on Earth anymore. Just knowing people care and are giving positive energy to show they care has saved more than one person from giving up. I know this works, because it’s worked in my own life.

My granddaughter nearly died of pneumonia a few months ago. She was in the hospital for over a month. I had about 5 thousand people praying for her recovery. She not only recovered, but has no lasting affects, and hasn’t been sick since. Coincidence? I don’t know. Would she have gotten better without prayer? I don’t know that either. But there is one thing that i do know is that knowing that you have that many people care, there is no way that positive energy can’t be sent through thought. Thoughts ARE things. If someone is thinking of giving up, there is no way that they couldn’t be feeling that energy of love coming from those prayers. And love is what we crave, isn’t it? That’s why we long for home; to feel the love of God. That’s we some DO leave. But if we were to feel love right here on this Planet, it would make our decision to leave harder, and make it easier for us to stay.

I cannot ever express how important prayer is for everyone. I myself pray for people all the time, if they know it or not. I am just hoping they can benefit from my loving energy. When it’s all said and done, love is all that matters, isn’t it?

Is It Manifestation or Alignment?

20190128_1543411785096485.jpg

Hi guys,  sorry that I haven’t blogged much, but my youtube channel has taken up a lot of my time as it grows and grows.(  Please visit Lana-The Comedian Medium).  But I’ve been thinking of writing some of these things for a while, and other things I’ve been thinking of have been spurred by other blogs.

If you are into New Age spirituality, you have to have heard about manifestation.  Seems like it’s the ‘hot’ word in every Self-Help book in the last 15 years.  The theory is; that we are small pieces of God, and this, we can create whatever we want, by thinking and doing things that allows us to complete our desires.  As if by magic, things seems to happen magically, almost like divine intervention.  We put our intentions towards our wishes, and it just kinda happens.  Well, I am here to tell yo, that I don’t agree with the theory of manifestation.  I believe that when things happen in our lives the way we want, it’s not manifestation, its alignment.

Now don’t get me wrong.  Yes, I believe we are miniature “Gods” in our own universe.  I believe we create our lives, and follow through with what we planned.  But things don’t just happen out of the clear blue, as if by magic.  We planned these things to happen before we came here.  We merely align ourselves with our life paths that we planned before we came.  No real magic here, but very Spiritual, yes.  We planned things to happen that we wanted in the way we wanted, and we align ourselves in a way so that they happen.

For example, I always wanted to be an author.  I wanted this from the age of 6.  Not only did I always say that I would be an author, but I did the things necessary to be in the right place at the right time.  Did it just so happen that submitted my book to a publisher who just so happened to be looking for my type of book at the exact time?  No, not at all. But did I do the necessary work over the years, such as found a job that allowed me to spend extra time writing, reading all I could about publishing, drew until I couldn’t anymore so my illustrations would be fantastic, put my book together and edit it 100 times?  You bet I did.  I manifested it out of the clear blue?  WHAT A BUNCH OF CRAP!!!

A good friend has often told me that I shit rainbows.  “Things always seem to work out for you,”  she used to say.  But what was my reply?  “I make those rainbows happen.  It’s just not blatantly visible.”  And that is true.  No one has ever given me anything, but I appear lucky.  I lose a job, and a new one is waiting.  Just like magic, right?  No, not at all.  My soul has aligned to my chart, and is aligning  in the right way so things happen.  No magic, out-of-the-blue things happening there.

For those of you who do not understand, I believe that we write our chart when we come to this planet. A chart is a map of our life, what we want to learn and achieve in this lifetime. We come to this planet to learn certain things, and we create our chart, in agreement with God.  We plan it all, and have help from others, including those on a Special Counsel, meant to help us and who were appointed by God.  It’s by writing our chart, that we know what is going to happen.  While there is some free-will, most of it has been pre-ordained.(That’s what deja-vu is; it’s your life map and it’s markers telling you you’re on the right path.)

Now here is where you make things happen;  at a soul level you know what you need to be on the right path and where to get it; you planned it.  So instead of just creating it; the path has already been created by you for you.  Yes, it’s the same idea as manifestation, but here’s the difference; it’s not just being created out of the blue, but was always the soul’s intention in the first place.

Now I’m not saying that the end result may be different than manifestation, I’m saying that if you understand that you planned it, it frees you from the pressure to create something.  The theory of alignment actually creates a path of least resistance, freeing yourself from pressure, and wasting of energy.  It allows you to expand broader and use your energy in other places.  Alignment teaches you to trust YOU and the Universe.(Could this be where FAITH comes in?)  Hmmmm….just a thought to ponder……….

The Bullied Empath

20181119_072420-3.jpgHi guys, I hope you are well.  I haven’t been on here for quite awhile because I am now on Youtube, and it’s taking a lot of my time.  What I am doing now is writing a whole lot of articles, and then releasing them slowly so you can read them.  My psychic business has just exploded, and has kept me busier than a one-armed paper hanger!

So I though I’d write about something that is near and dear to my heart;  bullied empaths.  I know there are lots and lots of us out there, and I just wanted to maybe offer some suggestions, and to let you know you are not alone.

There are some people who do not know what an empath is;  if this is the case, please visit my youtube channel, Lana the Comedian Medium for some sign or characteristics that you may be one.  But for most of us, we already know.  I know that I am one.

Now there are some people that say that Empaths are made by experiences, and not created.  I feel this is partially true, but either way, empaths tend to be the bullied ones.  You know, the ones that people have a tendency to pick on because they(we) are easy targets.  Empaths are emotional, caring, worrisome, usually suffer from anxiety, stress, low self-esteem and almost always put everyone ahead of their own needs.  Yes, I feel that this can be created by circumstances, but I truly think that these people were born this way.  I would also care to say about 30%of the people in the world are also Empaths.

I know what bullying is all about.  I’ve been bullied my whole life; through childhood to adulthood.  I’ve tried not to let it bother me, but it does.  I think the worst is workplace bullying.  It’s probably the worst because you are an adult and yet, you feel like a helpless child.  I get it.  It never seemed like I could say the right words to make a dig back at them, and if I did, even though they were bullying me, I felt bad that I hurt them, even when they were torturing me. (Welcome to the world of the Empath!!!!)I’m in the process of healing, and these are some of the things that I’ve bending to help me heal.  I am currently writing a book about this, because I feel this is such a huge issue, with not a lot of help out there is regards to healing.

  1.  Try to get away from situations that are causing the bullying.  I know this is hard and at times, almost impossible.  It can be even harder if you family is creating the issues.  Do what you have to do to make changes that takes care of your spirit.  I left a job that I had for 25 years because of workplace bullying(I don’t care what anyone says, teachers can be the worst bullies out there!)  Yes, I am close to retirement, but even after creating a new job for myself, I can finally see my worth.  I am no longer feeling defeated, worthless and unappreciated.  If you can get away, do.  If not these things might help you deal with these painful situations.

A.  I pray for those who persecute me. Yes, it’s Biblical, and yes, it works.  It seems    like it releases my pent up anger.  I am realizing that they are bullying because either, 1. they have been bullied by someone else,  2. don’t like themselves much or are  3. just insecure and lack self-esteem.  I always remember what a good Native American friend told me once.”Just remember, when someone insults you are belittles you, it is a reflection on themselves and how they are actually feeling about themselves.  It has taken me many years to learn to pray and forgive, but, yes it works.

B.   Talk to others who have been bullied.  Find support from a group a friend or a relative.  Everyone needs to realize that many people have been bullied.  Bullies seen to like to try to isolate us;  bullying at its core is the non-acceptance and isolation from a group dynamic;  humans are social animals that need to belong to a group, traditionally for survival.  Being removed or alienated in the past meant death.  That is why bullying is so traumatic;  you may end up dying if not in a group.  That’s why we conform, that’s why we want acceptance.  That’s why bullying is no painful.  Form you own group!  I did this in High School and ended up with friends I still have 30 years later.

C.   Acceptance that these experiences are what have made you into the person you are today.  I know this can be hard, because of self-talk and lack of self-esteem, but they are crucial for healing.  I learned over the years to just laugh at myself and some of my silly circumstances.  This seems to help.  It has taken me 52 years to be able to say that I like who and what I’ve become.  I practice saying this in the mirror to myself every single day.  I have a mantra that I say each morning;  I am a good person, I am loved and valued, I am important.  I say it in a mirror. It’s a form of meditation that I practice.

d.  Try some Rapid-eye movement.  This is controversial, but it is a therapy that worked for me.  Please search for this and someone can help you with it.  It helps you forget the emotions associated with the episodes in your life.

I know you are probably in pain about your treatment.  I’ve talked to people who are in their 70’s who remember vivid bullying.  But learning acknowledge it, accept it and let go of it is the key.  It may take many years, but but by doing this(speaking for myself), it has lead to release and use of energy to explore other things with my spirit and mind, not anger.

 

 

 

Does Your limiting beliefs Limit You?

Hello readers…..sorry I haven’t been on here, but I’ve been busy on youtube( Lana-The Comedian Medium). Thiught I’d share some blogging time with you.

Have you ever thought something was true, when it wasn”t, or Visa versa? Well, I’ll share an experience with you, and maybe you can identify.

I thought I had a twinflame. I was sure of it. All the signs were there. I KNEW that I had known him before; I had past-life regression and could remember him. He just had to be my true twinflame. He just had to be; all the similarities, coincidences, they all added up. At least in my perception.

But there were little things; callousness, never thinking about my feelings, narcissism. But I chose not to see them. Because I believed him to be my twinflame, I never saw the nasty, thoughtless things he did. I kept on believing we were perfect for each other Despite obvious issues in the relationship.

Then he moved away without telling me. I was heartbroken that he didn’t even have the balls to saying anything. He’d move away, and come back, three different times. I always let him get me excited about something, then he’d leave.

One day, I finally woke up.Maybe he wasn’t my twinflame. Maybe I had made too much about this whole thing. Slowly, the lightbulb came on. I had created this scenario in my mind. This relationship never existed.Yes, my concept of my relationship had created something that wasn’t even there.

I always made excuses, I always justified his crappy behavior. Could he be my twinflame? Yes, there could be a chance, but by my sgetting my beliefs in way that I did, I allowed him to treat me like garbage for years, instead of cutting him out of my life years ago, like I have done now.

Do you have a limiting belief? One tthat has kept you miserable? Why is it there? Is the belief imposed on yout by your family or religious beliefs? How has it hindered you? Tthese are things to think about, and to let go of. I did and my life seems much bettet.

What to Do When You Get a Negative Message from a Spiritual Teacher

20190717_090839Good day, all!  I’m sorry I haven’t posted as regularly as usual, but I am now also on youtube as Lana-The Comedian Medium.  Please hit like and subscribe!  I am putting tarot reads, advice and the like on there!

Today I’m writing about something that has been on my mind a lot lately;  the negativity bestowed upon you, namely through religious advisors and teachers. Now I’m not saying just mediums and psychics;  this refers also to pastors, healers, and even teachers.  It’s happened to me and I’m pretty sure it’s happened to a lot of you also.

i’ll never forget the reading I got one time from a fellow psychic.  We were friends at the time.  She did a read for me and told me I was a mean and nasty person, among other things.  She told me how horrible I was.  I was surprised and disappointed.  If anyone knows me, I think they would not say that.  At least i hope not.  Everything i do is in service to others.

Well I later found out why.  She was trying to discredit me as a psychic.  She also started spreading rumors about me, some that were texted to people who showed me what she said.  yeah, i was angry and hurt.  I hadn’t done anything to anyone.  That reading even made me wonder if maybe I REALLY WAS a bad person.

I thought about it and did some soul serving, which I truly will give her credit for. When listening to negative information,  always remember that it is a reflection on the person who is speaking.  I got that advice from a wise Native Americans woman one time, and have truly taken it to heart.

Some people feel badly about themselves, and will try to bring positive people down.  That’s including spiritual gurus and teachers.  That is includes all religions, also.  These people are letting their egos get in the way, not staying grounded and remembering why they do what they do.

I’ll never forget a pastor that I had that married my husband and I.  (That was when I was still buying into dogma).  I shook his hand at the end of the service and he said to me, “Gee, you guys are still married?”  WOW!!!!!  (Found out later he was having an affair and embezzling money from the church.  HMMMMM….go figure.)

I had a woman one time who was reading at me house one time, and she did a reading for another friend of mine.  The reader was extremely unhappy, overweight and kinda slovenly.  The client was very attractive, neatly dressed and very happy.  Well, needless to say, the client/friend left crying.  The reader was absolutely horrid and said hateful things to her, like how selfish she was for being attractive and etc., etc.   That reader was never asked to my house again. I think she’s divorced now.

Here’s some things to do if you ever run across someone like that;

  1.  Stop the reading if it becomes negative.  Walk out and don’t pay!  You have the right.
  2. Go release the negative energy by doing your favorite hobby, like gardening.
  3. Lay on the ground if you can.  It releases negativity into the soil.
  4. Meditate.
  5. Burn some sage and swipe a bundle of it around your aura.
  6. Let go, and forgive.
  7. Talk to a friend, but do not talk negatively about the person.  The negativity will return to you.

I hopeThat helps, and I hope you never have to deal with a negative spiritual teacher!  Namaste….God Bless……

 

Finding Crystals that Work for You,, Without Crossing Out Each Other’s Potency

20190713_153324.jpgHowdy. y’all from the Deep south of Fort Myers, Fla.(Notice that Southern Accent!, lol). I hope y’all are awesome!  I just had all this time on vacation, and thought I’d write A little bit about my life and things that happen as a psychic so that you can attune your life in the same way.

A few months back, I had a reading done with a friend who suggested certain crystals for me.    I have been going through certain things personally, and certain crystals have been used.  Crystals really do work;  I used to be the biggest skeptic, but if crystals can conduct electricity in computers, of course they will work on a human body, which is mostly electricity.  All crystals give off different frequencies and each type is needed for different times or stressors in your life. The crystal combinations needed come from suggestions from your guides, angels and deceased family members, and is related to the reader. I’ve been trying to shut off some negativity lately, and was wearing some negative absorption stones, mainly, Black Tourmaline, Jet and some Aqua Aura.  But they didn’t seem to work when I was reading.  I was still absorbing negative energy from somewhere. I felt anxious and ‘out of sorts’.  So my friend told me to take off all my stones, and switched them slightly.  I went to Onyx, Shungite and Coral.

I didn’t notice anything really different until I had no stones on for awhile.  I bought a new piece of Onyx and put it on, and got dizzy and nearly fainted.  Yes, Onyx is one of my stones.  It may change later, but has helped keep me grounded.  So how do you know which stones to wear? There are a few ways.

  1.  Have a crystal reader give you a list of the stones you need.I know several psychics who can do that for you, as well as myself. (Remember I can read for others, but no necessarily for myself.) Readers can also give  you a list on what you are going through at the present time.
  2. Do a meditation and listen to yourself. You will know which stones you may need by the ones you are attracted to.  Then look up the properties.  Make sure that those stones don’t cancel out the other stone’s ability.
  3. Learn the properties of the stones.  That’s one quick way.  I had to go and relearn which stones cancel each other out.  I didn’t realize a couple of my stones weren’t even working because of this.

I hope you stay healthy and grounded.  Keeping using what works, and if you need help, visit my website, http://www.enchantedskye.com for a reading or more information.

Does Everyone Have Psychic Abilities?

Hi friends and followers!  Greetings from sunny Florida!(Actually, it’s been raining quite a lot!).  I hope you are sane, safe and well.  I, myself, have been busy trying to relax, and apologize for not writing more, but I really needed a break for awhile. Mia Culpa.

cropped-2017-06-27 20.08.25So I have been sitting here thinking, and reflecting on psychic abilities.  I have been wondering what and why I have the abilities what I do.  It is a special power?  It is a talent?  Why can I read for people, size them up and see right through them?  Why can I talk to ghosts, spirits and angels?  What makes me special?  Am I special? I have been giving this a lot of thought, and am going to relate what i think is happening.

First, i know many people who have my abilities, so I am not alone.  Is it a talent?  Maybe, perhaps.  Not everyone can sing, and not everyone can draw, so psychic ability is probably an inherited talent to a certain extent.  I know for a fact that I inherited it from my mother.

But there is more to it.  Those with acute psychic ability have awareness, not just about themselves, but all energies around themselves, including living and inanimate objects, and not only understand it, but how to use the energy, and balance it with their own.  Many psychics understand and are aware of all the things around them. These people are not only tapped or plugged into the world around them, they are also using more of their grey matter to pay attention to the things around them.  In other words, they are self-actualized.

Let me explain.

The definition of self-actualized is being all that you can be.  It is the highest potential that that certain human can reach.  They are using all of their energy, their brain and soul.

I, for one, am not only a psychic but also an animal communicator and serious green thumb.  I seldom kill plants; many people have done studies and and have proven that green thumpers actually give off energy from their hands.  So am I working with energy and are aware when plants need tlc and an energy boost?  I think that is accurate.

i truly don’t think us psychics are that special from other people;  I think we are just ‘aware’ and using more of our brainpower than the unenlightened human.  We notice more, we understand more and are constantly ‘aware’ of energy, and our surroundings.

And we are more willing to listen and accept esoteric information as fact.  We understand better.  We are not different, just evolved ands aware.  Can every human do this?  I believe to a certain extent, yes.  Just having awareness opens you up to the possibilities. Everyone has the ability for self actualization. Are you self-actualized?  Would you like to be?  This is my series of blogs teaching you how to do that…….
