Helping a friend in their unfolding while incarcerated

Jeremy has an interesting story. Unbeknownest to me, when we met he was awaiting trial, which he never mentioned.  He told me he might be going to Haiti on a mission with his church.  In reality, he was awaiting trial in Florence, SC for stalking a woman and was convicted of indecent exposure and placed in the sex offender registry.  But I didn’t know any of that at the time. He is the son of my neighbor of 20 years, who never mentioned him. His story to me was that the Christian community he was involved with ignored him during his troubled times and he came to me for meditation. We began metaphysical discussion and reading Rumi, Hafez nightly and his mind blew open. While he was incarcerated in SC for 6 months,I introduced him to Bo Lzoff’s book We’re All Doing Time, which instructs inmates to use their prison time s self imposed monks doing sadhana, spiritual practice.  He began meditating and having revelations and writing them to me.  He was gaining insight from time spent contemplating and I witnessed the evolution of thought via his daily writings.  I could see his beliefs evolving and morphing.  I watched the light bulbs as they went off. Below I share from what I sent him. It’s way long. Continue reading

Are You In Spiritual Emergence-y?

I have met many people who have been treated for depression and other conditions when they were, in fact, in the deep stages of spiritual crisis. ~ Caroline Myss
Are you in turmoil in relationships?  Have you been fired, or betrayed? Do you have a total sense of abandonment? Is your emotional life like a roller coaster? Are you moving between feelings of numb blankness to darkness and despair? Are you hurt, angry, irritable, fatigued, restless, resentful, melancholy, mentally foggy, over or under fed,  sleepless or overslept, using addictive substances?  Are your spiritual needs not being met in churches and temples?  You know your spiritual needs are being met when you have a sense of stillness within you, and a feeling of connection to the Creator/ Source/ Universe/ Energy/ God/Goddess of your understanding.  Spiritual crisis a/k/a “spiritual emergence-y” is a form of identity crisis where you experience drastic changes to your belief system. A spiritual crisis may cause disruption in psychological, social and occupational functioning. This crisis is a sign that deep work and purification are unfolding. It can feel uncomfortable and painful. The higher Self of you is emerging. Some would say this is the Christ Self rising within you.

How to Make It All Right

“If you knew everything was really all right, and that it always has a happy ending, then you would not feel trepidacious about your future. Everything is really so very all right! If you could believe and trust that, then, immediately everything would automatically and instantly become all right.” ~ Abraham-Hicks

I get asked about electronic voice phenomena and why the succubus won’t communicate

An email I just got:   Andrea, hi, I’ve been dabbling in the paranormal since I was 12 after a demonic experience. I see your a pro and just have a few questions if you would be so kind to answer.

1. How can I communicate with positive energy while keeping the negative away? For example. On my last paranormal journey I picked up many evps (electronic voice phenomena, nonphysical voices on tape )and some photos of a young child named Anna. But also had evps of what seemed to be a negetive or demonic spirit not wanting me around. I believe this young spirit is in need of something. The last evp tho was her saying “can I help you?”

2. I’ve been dealing with a succubus (Andrea’s note: a nonphysical entity that takes the form of a female to have sex with you in dreamstate) ever since I moved to my new house and since I’ve mentioned “it” or her. It’s stopped messing with me I.e having sex with me while sleeping. But also will not communicate. How can I get communication with this spirit?

3. What is the best advice to give to someone asking for help to communicate with passed relatives who linger? Continue reading

I join Planet Fitness the day before Thanksgiving

The day before Thanksgiving, I joined Planet Fitness.  It was cool that they were open Thanksgiving Day.  I spent yesterday morning getting familiar with the equipment and the routines.  It feels good to be back in a gym. I can’t pretend I’ll stay strong if I don’t work on it, I’m 50 freaken 9. I do daily yoga but I can at least walk the treadmill each day, too.  Like you, I’ve belonged to several gyms off and on through the years.  I like something real close.  I don’t like commiting to a contract.  I’ve got friends who have never been in a gym and say they wouldn’t know what to do when they got there. Well, that’s it, you ask and they tell you.  You tell them what your goals are and they tell you which muscles that involves and show you which machines work those muscles.  They suggest which muscle groups to work together on the same day, which muscle groups to work on other days and how long to rest in between.

I was too quick to judge

I judged someone before meeting them, as being too slick and a real player. It was confirmed upon meeting them. It took me some time to get over my initial judgment enough to see them clearly. I’m sorry. Forgive me.

Crazy for God
