An Honest Prayer

Two young boys were spending the night at their grandparents.

At bedtime, the two boys knelt beside their beds to say their prayers when the youngest one began praying at the top of his lungs, “I PRAY FOR A NEW BICYCLE. I PRAY FOR A NEW PLAYSTATION. I PRAY FOR A NEW DVD…”

His older brother leaned over and nudged the younger brother and said, “Why are you shouting your prayers? God isn’t deaf.”

To which the little brother replied, “No, but Gramma is!”

The time has come for a while as I’m moving forwards.

The good news is that whatever  the life situation or whatever life throws at us, we can always turn it around once we decide to make it happen, my time now has now come to say bye bye for a while from blogging as I have said all I need to say for now. I only hope you decide to have a more happy and fulfilling life the way you deserve. Wishing you all a luscious, sensual, warm, loving, joyful and restful life ~A Path To
Enlightenment… god bless you and take care Joanne! xxx

Here are some last tips to orchestrate the turn around :

1) Believe it is possible to succeed

The only real danger is your belief that there is no solution for your problem –
that you are indeed helpless. You need to first remove this belief if you want
to make any progress. The fact is that all power to find that solution lies
within you – you are just not seeing the solution yet.

2) Your past is not equal to your future

Your future has got nothing to do with the past. By taking correct action in the
present moment, you can create anything you want. Learn from the past but do
not get stuck in it.

3) Practice Persistence

Success takes persistence. People who stick around longer without giving up open themselves to success more than people who give up easily when they fail a few times. Successful people never stop trying.

4) Do it better each day

While persistence is good, one needs to always look for better ways to solve the same problem. Get creative and see how you can solve the same problem in a better way, that you did not attempt yesterday.

5) There are no real failures

Each failure is a stepping stone to future success. Failures brings us much needed knowledge and experience that was lacking the last time around. If the correct lessons are learnt and applied from past experiences, success if not far away.

6) Consult with an expert

It is good to get some fresh ideas from other people who have experience and skill dealing with the challenges you are facing. For example, some relationships that you could not improve by yourself for over a decade can be turned around
in a couple of months with help from a skilled relationship coach. The same goes with other areas of life such as your career, health and finances.

7) Stay positive and appreciative of what you do have

Just because one area of your life is not working the way you want, do not fool yourself into believing that your entire life has gone haywire. When we are focused on what is lacking, we just tend not to pay enough attention to what is working. Practice genuine appreciation of the areas of your life that are doing great. Whatever the situation, each one of us has a lot to be grateful for, that some others may not be blessed with.

8) Know that this too shall pass

No problem remains forever. Most of us have faced problems that perhaps felt like the end of the world many years back, that hardly cross our mind at this time. With continued right effort, you will find the solution much sooner than you think.

Twin Lives – A Tale of Heart

A little story: Once there were two children who lived in the inner city in  Dublin. They were twins, a boy and a girl. They had no chance in life. Even as  babies they were addicts – even before they left the womb. Their mother was  addicted to heroin. The father came and went bringing violence and abuse with  him. The children lived in squalor. They had no education, barely enough to eat,  and resorted to thieving to feed their mother’s addiction. At last they were  taken into care but nothing could change the pattern of their childhood. They  ran away and spent long periods on the streets. The boy developed his own drug  habit by the age of twelve. The girl broke away. She experienced abuse in the  guise of help and realized there was no authority under the sun she could trust.  But then as if a voice inside her had spoken she decided she would build her own  life, from the ground up. She managed, with difficulty, to  find a job and a room. After some time she took literacy classes, and  then progressed to night-school. Finally she enrolled in college and gained a  qualification. As the years passed she married, bought a house and had children.  One day she was walking over O’Connell Bridge and she saw a figure hunched  inside a sleeping bag, begging with a plastic cup in front of him. It was her  brother – her twin. He didn’t see her.

The brother never made it. He didn’t have the same opportunities. And yet  their opportunities were exactly the  same.

How is this possible? It wasn’t nature and it certainly wasn’t nurture – both  things had failed them completely. They had no chance in life. So how did one  rise up and the other didn’t?

I have no answer to this. One could look for little sociological clues or  say, perhaps, that the father had managed to spare an ounce more love for the  girl than for the boy. Somehow it feels as if you have to say something: find  some excuse for life.

I pondered over this and came up with one or two contributory elements,  apparently unrelated. The first was that, ‘You only receive what you can cope  with’. I believe this – that life gives you what you can handle, whether it  seems fair or not. It’s not a question of what you deserve but what you can cope  with. This doesn’t quite fit in, in terms of finding explanations, excuses or  justifications. Even if the shoulders are weak they carry the burden up to the  last breath. I could go on and say, the greater the heart the greater the load,  until there is a universe to bear. If a god’s own steps are slowed with the  burden he has to bear, then a human love might step in to help. I think we’re in  this position in life: that we bear the burden we can cope with in order that  the divine can carry the universe. In other words, by bearing the load – often  without any explanation or help – we perform a service for the divine in us.  Even if we don’t know there is any divine there at all.

The second element is the question of heart. In the story the girl seems to  have more ‘heart’ – in the sense of being able to lift herself up – than the  boy. Why is this? Both are like people lying on a bed of burning coals with feet  pressing them down. Why does one have the heart to get up while the other  doesn’t? This is just the original question put in a different form. Is it that  one is born with the heart while the other isn’t? We’ve already established that  both were born addicted. For me the answer is that the heart has to be given. In  this case it has to be given by the divine: the divine returns the help it has  received through the human being carrying its burden. This again brings up the  question, ‘Why does one deserve help and not the other?’

I believe the answer lies in my third element which is: Powerlessness.  Powerlessness soaks the argument out of you. It is the opposite of ‘world’. The  world is power. It has fullness, resources, opportunities. Powerlessness leaves  you like an empty, burnished bowl. It is the only time in life when it’s  justified to say that the human being is an empty vessel which has to be filled  up – when powerlessness has done its work. This is the great theme of tragedy:  catharsis. In drama the point comes when the gods say, ‘It’s done – that’s  enough’. In life it’s the same: the empty bowl can be filled with the flame of ‘heart’ which is the only real power in the world. I think this is the only  explanation why one rises up and the other doesn’t – the words, ‘It is  enough’.

All these ‘contributory elements’ aren’t explanations at all. But neither are  they excuses or justifications. Just try and find a satisfying answer to  problems like this that doesn’t include judgements or excuses for life: ‘He must  have deserved it’; ‘it was his karma’; ‘she had something in her that he  didn’t’; ‘there must have been something different that gave her a chance’. I  would personally like to find comprehensive answers that don’t impose further  burdens. Too often the feet pressing you down on the burning coals have some  connection to religion. And I like answers which belong within the spiritual  nature of the human being. To my mind those will have ‘heart’ and the chance of  personal responsibility.

However, all this circling around the question is just the way my particular  mind works. I would love to hear from anyone who has more experience or  different insights!

Healers and Lightworkers: 5 Keys for Healing at a High Vibration

Want to discover how you can ‘Shine your Light’ brighter and reach your full  potential as a Healer or Lightworker?

As a professional healer I am often  approached by other healers wanting to  find ways to heal their own wounds and self-imposed limitations, so that they  can ‘step out of their own way’ and really get on with using their healing gifts  and knowledge for the benefit of each other, humanity and the planet.

I  have observed 5 key areas that healers and lightworkers need to address to reach  their full potential and do their healing work at a much higher  vibration.

1. Become part of a community of like-minded people
Too  often, as a healer or lightworker, you may feel isolated in your family or  social networlightworkersk as being ‘different’, possibly even a little bit ‘weird’! Many  times that naturally high sensitivity leads to shying away from others and a  tendency to introversion. Nurturing, supportive relationships can seem difficult  to find. You may fear authentic expression of yourself for fear of ridicule or  persecution (something which may have been a very real threat to you in previous  lifetimes as a healer).

I have always believed in the importance of  creating a safe space and networking  opportunities, both personally and via the wonder of the internet, so that  likeminded souls can really open up and talk freely together about issues that  really interest them – a place, real or virtual, where others really ‘get’ where  they are coming from and can engage in deep, meaningful conversations and learn  from each other.

The benefits of such a community of like-minded healers  can be far-reaching. Not only are you actively-engaged in the like-minded  community, you can be happier and more confident about fully expressing yourself  as a healer or lightworker, your vibration naturally raises, allowing you to do  your healing work at a higher level.

2. Strengthen your connection to  Source
Some of the ways I recommend are by spending more time Being than  Doing, meditating more, being still and going deep within. Feel and write down  daily in a journal everything you feel Gratitude for. Spend more time surrounded  by the sights, sounds and aromas of Nature to feel your connection to the Divine  strengthen. Whatever gives you pure, natural joy brings you closer to the Divine  and ignites that Divine spark within you.

3. Put yourself as your number  1 priority
Healers and lightworkers are hard-wired to give to others! In  order to continue to give to others at the highest level, you must first give to  yourself and learn how to receive. Fill up your own cup first that you may give  to others from the overflow.

You must be willing to do whatever it takes  to care for yourself and to move beyond your own blocks and limitations, either  by self-healing or in a therapeutic environment. Self-care must cover physical,  mental, emotional and spiritual needs. As a healer or lightworker you are  probably already good at addressing your spiritual needs and clearing the higher  chakras, but how much physical exercise do you get and how nutritious is your diet? I think you get what I  mean….

Balance and attention to self-care in all areas of your life is  necessary to be performing healing and lightwork at the highest  levels.

4. Develop high self-esteem
The archetype of Chiron, the  Wounded Healer, is well-known and may be applicable to you. Often the best  healers are those who have developed deep levels of compassion for others  through their own personal life traumas.

If you struggle financially,  have vague feelings of ‘not being good enough’, of having to ‘prove’ yourself as  worthy or you hold back from speaking your truth, then chances are your  self-esteem could do with a major boost. 85% of people suffer from low  self-esteem in one or more areas of life.

5. Forgiveness
This is a  tough one for many people – including healers – who feel that ‘stewing’ in  unforgiveness and anger towards those you perceived as having wronged you,  somehow is getting revenge on them! The only person who is really getting hurt  is you, maybe leading you to physical dis-ease. Often the offender has forgotten  about the incident or never realized there was a problem in the first  place.

Let it go! The gift of forgiveness is for yourself, not for the  person who wronged you. Are you willing to hold your vibration low and risk  serious diseases such as cancer just to  be ‘right’? Forgive yourself, too, for having allowed yourself to be caught up  in the drama for so long.

Perhaps more so than in any other occupation,  as healers and lightworkers you need to constantly be working to clear your own  physical, mental, emotional and spiritual blocks and limiting beliefs. Focusing  on the 5 keys above is imperative for you to reach your highest vibration and  potential to do your healing and lightwork. You owe it to your self. You owe it  to the planet. As Mahatma Ghandi said, “Be the change you want to see.” Shine  your light brighter to raise the consciousness of humanity and for planetary  healing.
