No one is born Self Confident

As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.”

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

No on is born Self-Confident even some people tend to believe that. As if self-confidence is a gift that was given to a few by birth and others have to work hard for it, some of us even a life time. This believe is a myth and has created a lot of confusion and misunderstanding within our personal expression of ourselves.

After years of self-development and also walking and exploring the spiritual path, I honestly can say: No one was born Self-Confident furthermore that the growth of self -confidence has different stages we go through. There are internal and external factors that do play a very important role in building self-confidence by understanding this we gain a lot of insights and can change accordingly.

google.com

There are many studies and even more opinions about the subject of self-confidence and many of them teach us a totally wrong picture what it actually is.

The concept of self-confidence is commonly used as self-assurance in one’s personal judgement, ability, power, etc. One increases self-confidence from experiences of having mastered particular activities. It is a positive belief that in the future one can generally accomplish what one wishes to do. Self-confidence is not the same as self-esteem, which is an evaluation of one’s own worth, whereas self-confidence is more specifically trust in one’s ability to achieve some goal…” – Wikipedia 2018

I wonder how many people do truly know what self-confidence is, how many of us do still believe the media’s opinion that confidence can only increase if we buy this or that. Only if we possess certain things or follow a certain method we will finally gain self-confidence and can achieve anything we want in life.

Internal and external factors that shape Self-confidence

There are many different factors which play an important role in building self-confidence early in our lives. Most important probably will be our parents and how much they encouraged, supported and loved us. This relationship is the foundation for the rest of our lives and determines very much on how we see ourselves. The more we grow up the more we come in touch with other external factors such as teachers and other children at school. The teachers opinion about our performance in school has a huge impact on our self-confidence and can break us. In that period of time we also confronted with media’s idea about our self-image and especially as a teenager we are so vulnerable to the opinions of others. These early external factors play an important role in our person development of self-confidence and can have an impact we will feel a life time. Unless we become conscious and aware enough or shall I say brave enough to heal and break through childhood or early teenage trauma.

The role of our parents towards Self-confidence

While we are children, we are totally dependent on our parents and what they make us belief about ourselves. Some people say that children have developed a sense of self-esteem by the age of 5. Dependent on our parents and how much they supported us during the early ages we will grow rich or poor in self-confidence. If rejection, abuse or the inability to express love towards children has taken place, the child will suffer a lot more than other children. In addition to that its not only what our parents do think about us but also what the parents do think about themselves. How can a parent give a good idea of self-confidence if its not present within themselves? The parents inability to love themselves or being proud of their own achievements will also be reflected towards the child. Especially that happens if the child in its innocent nature strives to be better and learn new things. If the parents then hold on to their own lack of self-confidence it doesn’t allow the child to make new experiences that help him/her grow. This is often how problems and belief systems are passed down from one generation to the other, to the point where one family member finally breaks free by seeking actively help regarding these problems.

Performance and the fail of the education system to offer true support

Performance is everything, parents are still believing that only if a child performs good in school it will make it in life. Teachers thinking the same, but for them it is more important if the child does perform good in a certain subject. Because for the teacher it is a sign that he/she is doing the right job. I wonder how many teacher actually do ask themselves if what they teach is actually needed in life? In addition to that I want to raise the question how many children nearly break under the expectations of parents and teachers to perform rather than be themselves? We still do believe only if we achieve something with the highest scores it would build up our self-confidence, this is only half true.

hindustiantimes.com

Yes, achievement has something to do with building self-confidence but it can be an achievement in anything. Something we do like, something we do have a passion for, something we set our minds to and we achieved it with our own two hands or with support of others.

In schools and education the achievement mostly includes to repeat what has been said or to achieve the highest mark so we are able to get a better job in the future. As statistics have shown how many world class students are still out of work. On the other hand side how many famous or successful people are truly depressed?

It is a myth and we still go for the idea that happiness is found on the outside, based on this believe we run around a life time, continuously asking ourselves when it will finally come. The day we achieved to be content and at ease with ourselves?

Real Self-Confidence comes from within

Let me say again, self-confidence is not something we are born with but something that we gain throughout life. It is very important to understand the difference, furthermore it will help to build a solid foundation on which self-confidence finally can grow.

From a spiritual perspective the problem arises already with our birth. The moment when the spirit incarnates into a physical body and sets itself the challenge to experience the world through the eyes of its own. From the moment we are born we are totally dependant on our parents, or at least on our mothers. We need to be fed, looked after and told how to do things. Dependant on our parents this can be a tricky path and very much is up to them what they think is really important to us. But also what they think about themselves. Then we are forced into an education system that makes us believe that our performance on how to repeat what is told will get us what we need in life. Unable to understand ourselves, the world around us we do suffer from an early age from an alienation what life is really about.

Its not about how good you perform in life but what you gain from life. How good you learn to express yourself in many different ways in this life time. How brave you are to truly explore and be who you are. Furthermore how capable you are to deal with life difficulties without losing the belief in yourself. This often is not taught to us by our parents or in school. Media and news do as well fail in building a strong foundation for people to understand life of what it truly is.

In the last instance many people turn to spirituality around the age of mid 40’s. When we have lived through some difficulties in life, we might gone through childbirth, marriage, divorce, experienced loss, and death in one way or the other, we made it in a job or even lost it once. We suddenly realize that all this somehow made us stronger and more experienced at the same time we do feel more vulnerable. Feeling that life can hit you very unexpected and nothing much you can do about it. One day we are self-confident and we think we can achieve anything the next moment this conviction is gone with the wind. All that is left is the question what is next? And how we are going do deal with it?

Self-confidence is a process from self-exploration and experiences, how we deal with them and how open we are to change? Some people are maybe born with a stronger will to live, some people got a thicker skin than others. A few people know that they asking for assistance or help to deal with certain circumstances is not a crime but very necessary to outgrow old belief systems about the self. Others might turned bitter and given up on life. In all of us there is the potential for greatness and it is up to us what we are going to make of it.

How much can we accept that life is full of unexpected changes? How far can we push ourselves to strive to new heights? Can we forgive ourselves and others for making mistakes? When do we realize that self-confidence is not something that we are born with but something that needs to be trained, brought back into life once it was lost and maybe restored when it has been broken. Understanding what role our parents, teachers, others, the media and society played in shaping the belief in ourselves. It is a slowly process of getting to know yourself better, day by day. Sorting out what you want and what you don’t want, allowing your limitations and dreams to guide you. Realizing a setback is not the end and every day we got the chance to start all over again.

Why Anti-Depressants kill your soul by Julie Jurgan

Did you know that over 61 million Antidepressants outside of hospitals have been described alone in the UK in 2015?

(The Guardian July 2016)

More and more people seem to follow the mainstream opinion of taking chemical drugs to deal with depressions, anxiety and panic attacks. Without knowing what they really do to themselves and their soul. People need and want a quick solution for their discomfort and even doctors are not really helpful in pointing out the source of depressions to their patients. I truly believe if we come to understand what kind of depression we are suffering from and take a realistic view on what is wrong with the world, we will come to understand that depressions are mostly not-self made. Furthermore the most of diagnosed depressions do occur as a result of an outside influence we suffer from and feel we have no control of or a lack of power to change it.

Knowing the reason, its source we may come into a better understanding of ourselves and what it means to be depressive. But even most important we will understand that depression is not a condition that we need to live with as we can make certain steps towards its release. We also need to come to see that taking anti-depressant doesn’t solve the problem it only helps in coping.

The question now is, do we want to cope with life or do we want to live it? How much of our control do we want to hand out to others and where can we take our own responsibility? Antidepressant have major side-effects and apart from that they turn you into an emotional disconnected being. If we really want to work with depression we need to dive deep into the ocean of understanding of the self and make necessary adjustments. Honesty and authenticity are the key elements to find the source of depression and suffering.

help

Most important is that we do understand that our soul is the most trustworthy guide in our lives, telling us when something is right or wrong. Taking anti-depressant will take that natural guide away and will take you even deeper into nowhere land. A place that couldn’t be any further from your true self.

The easiest way to be reborn is to live and feel life everyday” 
Munia Khan

 

Social Expectation Depression

A very interesting expression of a phenomena and I truly believe that 90% of people who have been diagnosed with depression suffer from. It means that we are depressed because we feel that we don’t fit into society. Furthermore it means that we suffer because we can’t reach social expectations that have been put upon us.

These kind of depressions are a natural outcome of influence of mainstream media into our lives. These media especially TV creates an illusion of how the “good life” should look like. In addition to that happiness is the ultimate goal. Once we realized that we will never look like the people on TV or magazines, we will never be able to be happy all the time and we truly believe that possessions are what we really need to be happy – we will suffer tremendously.

The feeling of abandonment, unworthiness, self-doubts will find its way into our lives and feeds on all the illusionary ideas that are shown on TV. The increasing use of smart phones and social media doesn’t help with that. Of course we can be in touch with someone in seconds, but we can’t touch them. Means we lose our ability to be with people, to be touched by people and furthermore to really connect with people. We fear the opinion of others, our own vulnerability and boundaries.

We forget how to make time for ourselves as there is always someone reaching out to us or telling us what’s going on at the moment. Looking at Facebook and other social media we start comparing our lives with the lives of others. There is no more space that we allow ourselves to stay in – thinking and feeling that we miss out on something.

The best advice and the most important step for this kind of depression is, to cut back on watching TV and overwhelming yourself with social media and other distractions. Learn to meditate and come into the space within yourself. You will need to learn to work with your soul and have an honest look upon yourself. You have to learn to be with yourself and enjoy your own company only so you will get to know yourself better. The buddhist Metta Meditation ( try here) can be very helpful in terms of increasing self-love.

 

Work Pressure Depression

In the workplace that indicates a job we don’t like and just do because of the money. Maybe out of fear or doubts that we never ever will be able to do a job we love doing and make money with it.

In addition to that these kind of depressions are also created by our working ethics against our inner clock. Our over productive society has created a climax that is more than unnatural for our well-being. We spend too much time indoors, eat just on the go and spend more than 70% our wake-life at our workplace to cover our survival costs. We work as much in summer as we do in winter and in a full-time employment we get about 5 or 6 weeks holidays a year.

depressedHour after hour we stare into computers, take one job load after the next, try to deal with sickness of colleagues and more time pressure at work. It’s up to us to cope with the consequences of staff reduction at work, the increasing of deadlines and the constantly growing amount of pressure.

Not that this would be enough, we also hear about the changes in the big wide world, how they might affect our job security or our future lives.

No wonder you are fed up, tired, overwhelmed and stressed out. How should any normal human being deal with all these things? Especially things that lay outside of our control, things that we have no influence on.

So how can you deal with all this? Antidepressant may help you to stay were you are but they won’t make you happy. They will assist you in staying in a discomfort situation rather than changing it. You will need to face reality and realize that you might working in the wrong job, that you are overworked or you feel not appreciated.

If this is the case, first of all speak with someone about it. Someone you would definitely support your decision whatever that may be, someone who encourages you to do what feels right for you. You might want to seek a chat with your manager as well and let him/her know how you feeling at the moment. That might lead to less work pressure at least for a short period of time. At the end you will need to face the situation and might think about going self-employed or change jobs.

Yes that can be scary and very challenging at the beginning but you will need to develop inner strength to work through it. Speak to your local job centre you might get some support, reach out for some empowerment healing from an alternative healer or might seek some advice from a counselor.

Keep in mind that change is a necessary part of life and we mostly suffer because we deny the fact that we need to change too. You might want to develop a spiritual practice, go to yoga and meditation classes to learn to let go of your fears and doubts. Furthermore to feel the flow of life rushing through you and gain back your flexibility. Trust me, little steps of change make a huge difference and suddenly everything falls into place.

But you will need to overcome your need to control things and learn to let go of the illusion that life is only safe if we stay in the job we have.

Loss Depression

The loss Depression is one of the profoundest we can experience because they are somehow unchangeable. We might be able to change our jobs, leave our partners and remove ourselves from unpleasant situations. But we won’t be able to bring back a loved one who passed. The pain we experience through the grieving process is absolutely massive and can really bring us to the ground. Even years after the passing we can still find ourselves crumbling, crying and feeling so deeply hurt when we touch that empty space within our hearts. There is no remedy for a heart that suffers from a loss of a loved one.

Thoughts of not being able to go on, to cope with all that lies in front of us and the emptiness we drown deep into the valley of depression and hopelessness. Some of us may even experience suicidal tendencies themselves especially during the first few months. Everything is so raw, so open, so vulnerable.

Once again our heart has been cracked open and it hurts.

walk-alone

Some people might argue that anti-depressant would be a solution at least for the first few months but to be honest. No, I don’t think so. Antidepressant maybe make you feel that there would be no pain and that is an illusion. The pain will be there no matter what you do, suppressing it is not a solution. Especially help with pharmaceutical drugs is no solution at all. Furthermore it is very important to feel the pain and do whatever is important for you in this moment. Withdraw from the world if you want to, hide, cry, shout, be angry but let it out. Surround yourself with supportive friends and other loved ones but give yourself time. You don’t need to open up if you don’t want to. There are grieving telephone lines available such as the Samaritans (look here) which offer an open ear and support anonymously. You might also want to join a grieving group or take upon a task that helps you to express your loss. For this reason Art Therapy or writing a diary can be very helpful, but also dancing can be an embodiment for your pain.

Make sure that you nourish yourself during these periods of grieving, get a massage, have a hot bath, go for walks and do whatever you feel like doing.

Traumatic Experience Depressions

These kind of depressions mostly come from a past event we have experienced. A trauma we had to go trough and we are unable to release. This kind of depression mostly is chronic and will occur over a very long period of time, it can also be experienced in intervals. A traumatic experience depression definitely will need therapeutic assistance to be worked with. Antidepressant in this case will only suppress the symptoms but will never help to release its source, furthermore it will give the patient the feeling that he has to deal with this the whole of his/her life. There are other empowering alternative healing strategies available such as holistic therapies which can help to reduce the physical expression and do its best to release the symptoms on a material/physical level. A shamanic soul retrieval or shamanic healing can help to release the trauma from the persons energetic body and also assist the soul to heal itself.

But don’t get stuck in the thought that life has been tough on you and its never ever going to change. You will need to work yourself through the trauma and its expressions, the pain, the anger, the helplessness. A trauma might have changed you, but working with it can also transform you and turn a traumatic experience into a healing work. Sometimes we are confronted with certain situations not only that we gain strength from it once we overcame them but also to offer other people help and guidance with similar experiences.

There is always something to gain from any situation no matter how painful it was or is. Don’t give up on yourself and open up to outside help and support.

 

Existential Depression

1a430fe973e38cf30174eb8eeb55c086This form of depression will feel everyone at one point in their lives and might be a summary of all of the above. It expresses itself in the hopelessness and helplessness of being a human placed on this earth. Confronted with our own mortality, through the loss of a loved one or other experiences to do with death, the question why we need to work for our survival, why we are the way we are and furthermore we question our purpose or meaning of life.

Normally these are quite normal expression and can be counted to a necessary feelings to deepen our connection with life. We can’t only live in happiness and pretend that we don’t have meaningful questions pressuring our hearts. We can’t deny the fact that life sometimes gives us a hard time and we do question ourselves or fear our own mortality. These days, sometimes maybe weeks of existential depression helps us to transform ourselves and reach a new level spiritually. Of course these times can be very intense in its feelings but normally we should be able to work through and know that we will come out at the other side of the tunnel with a different point of view on things.

Normally we try to suppress these times of discomfort with eating, drinking or other activities that distract us. But we can also use these times as powerful chances to grow into our own and reach a new level of understanding and inner strength.

If you want to learn to understand yourself and the course of time better I can recommend watching favourite Astrologer Kaypacha (see more). Every week he explains the influences of astrology upon us and our moods, feelings and expressions. He offers great advice and better understanding for temporary influences and helps to connect the soul on a bigger picture.
I hope I could help a bit in understanding and working with depression and shine a light on alternative routes to deal with that important subject. Let us not come from Depression into Suppression but into Expression and Embodiment.

My pain strengthens my awareness.

My doubts remind me on my shared humanity.

My fears show me how to become stronger and my desperation teaches me about my vulnerability.

Now I know that I need to walk through the valley of hopelessness to allow my soul to guide me.

As this is the instant connection to the flow of life and the energy of the universe.

How to find the right medium/psychic?

I have been a medium and healer myself for quite a few years now and I really do love my work. The best thing in my work is that I am able to assist and guide people with my psychic abilities and my spiritual knowledge. It is really rewarding to see how peoples lives have changed after a Reading or a Healing Session.

Not one day is the same and so are not any of my clients are the same, they come to me with different concerns, issues and problems. Unfortunately I also hear again and again about other people working in the psychic/medium field and they do more harm than good. This gives the work of a genuine medium/psychic or healer a really bad name and degrades our honest and hard work to a very low level.

I do believe the problem in the work as a medium/psychic is that there are no standards as such which qualify you as a good or bad medium/psychic. Everyone can call themselves a medium or psychic without even having enough experience, qualifications or done the work on themselves.

Over the years I was lucky enough to work with and learn from some very great mediums. People who have been in the field for many years and also who are working to a very high standard. I have seen them working on platform and also in One-to-One Sessions as well as their courses and workshops when I was their translator. During those times I did learn a lot about what it means to be a good medium/psychic and a lot about myself. I also had a lot of readings from all sorts of mediums/psychics some of them are very well-known and some of the readings were really disappointing and a total waste of time and money.

If I had known what I know now, it would have saved me a lot of bad advice, a lot of time as well as a lot of money.

Based on my personal years of experience working as medium/psychic and healer I created this guide for you. It will highlight a few points that you should ask yourself before looking for a medium or psychic. Other points can help you to check if you found the right medium/psychic for you, so you get most out of your reading.

Questions to ask yourself before you start looking for a medium/psychic:

Ask yourself honestly, why you want to see a medium or psychic? What is your motivation? Are you just curious or you experiencing a crisis in your life and you want some further advice? You might have lost a loved one and you know that some mediums are able to give proof of survival after death, which can be very reassuring.

The answer to the above questions will lead you closer to what you are looking for. If you experience a difficult situation in your life and want some advice of course you can go and see a psychic.
Psychics are more focused on working with your energy, the energy of your soul or akashic records.

A spiritual medium in its classic sense, delivers proof for life after death rather than focusing too much on your personal energy in that present moment. The focus of spiritualist mediums is to give evidence of your loved one from the spiritual world and then to bring you a message (in churches) that would assist you on your way.

Unfortunately many people or even working mediums/psychics are not aware of the difference between mediumship and psychic work. This is often caused due the lack of qualification and standard in their work and dependent on the teachers they have learnt from.

Working on a psychic level is a totally different energy than working on a mediumistic level, but both of them are equally important or worth.

There are mediums who will ask why you contacted them and its okay to say that you have a certain problem or question (but don’t name the problem or question) that is the mediums/psychic job to find out. But say it might has to do with your life or you are in need to speak to someone who has passed over into the spiritual world.

Do you want to see a medium/psychic in person or would you be okay to do a Skype session?

Many people do prefer to see a medium or psychic in person rather than a Skype session and there is nothing wrong with that. But our modern technology offers some amazing opportunities we should not miss out.

In general for the medium it doesn’t matter if you sit in front of them in real life or on the other side of a computer screen. Energy doesn’t have any limitations nor boundaries and a reading can be as good as in when you meet in person. I do a lot of Skype readings for people all over the world but also in person and never felt that it wouldn’t work better the one way or the other.

Furthermore I do believe that if we only focus on a medium who lives close by we do limit ourselves and our opportunities to find the right medium for us. There is maybe a medium in Australia you really feel drawn to but you are based in Germany, so why not try a Skype session?

There are also areas around the world where there maybe not many mediums around, especially in some countries where mediums not really common. It doesn’t mean that you should limit yourself rather than opening up to new opportunities.

Hunting for the right medium/psychic

So here we go, you clarified what you expect from a reading if you are looking for a reading about yourself which is then psychic (Life Reading, Akashic Records Reading, Psychic Reading, Soul Reading).

Or you are looking to gain some proof for life after death and needed to hear from a loved one in the spirit world that would be a mediumistic reading. Now you can go out and look for the right medium for you.

1. Ask your friends for recommendations

Best and easiest way is to ask your friends if anybody has ever been to a medium/psychic and could recommend someone. Recommendations are direct experiences and always good to start with. But keeping in mind that not every medium/psychic resonates with the same person. It might was good for your friend but you think it is not the right medium/psychic for you. Trust that feeling and keep on looking.

2. Check the mediums/psychic website

Its important to do some research and best for that is online. You can use google for the start and type in medium/psychic whether in your area or somewhere else. Check out the websites you find and see if it resonates with you.

a) Does the mediums/psychics picture appeal to you?

b) Are there any testimonials or reviews on the website?

c) Does the medium/psychic explain the way it works or does it only talk about

itself and how great he/she is?

d) Are there any contact details to get in touch with the medium/psychic before

booking a reading?

e) Does the way the medium/psychic present itself resonate with you? Or is it

too spaced out?

3. Check the pricing

Often the websites don’t give away a lot of information on the pricing and that is totally fine. It often can mean that the medium/psychic only works with committed people who actually make the effort to contact them.
Or the medium/psychic wants to decide if she/he can work with you after speaking to you. It allows time to get to know each other before a session gets booked.

Unfortunately there is no real guidelines with the pricing, some really expensive mediums are totally crap and some others very good mediums don’t charge a lot. So you can’t say that expensive is always good or cheap is always bad.

Most of the well-known mediums just got a good marketing company but it doesn’t mean that they do extraordinary work. On the other hand side I truly believe that being a genuine medium/psychic is a very valuable work and hard work but many people don’t see it as such.

If you want quality and you set your intentions towards it, I am sure you will be guided the right way.

4. Getting in touch with your medium/psychic

Once you made a decision and you found a medium/psychic of you choice its time to contact them. Do yourself and the medium a favour and have your questions at hand if you got any. So much time is wasted and emails been sent from people to us psychic/mediums with loads of unnecessary questions, pictures and asking for free readings.

Working in this field can sometimes be a bit tricky because people have all sorts of ideas about mediums/psychics.

A genuine medium/psychic will happily answer your questions when you make contact and will help to clarify your concerns if you have any.

If you don’t feel that is the case than you might not with the right medium/psychic then.

Once you happy with your first contact you can go ahead in booking a session via Skype or in person. Keeping in mind that mediums/psychics do this work for their living not for fun, means that you should keep the appointment you arranged or if you have to cancel as early as possible.

Some mediums ask for a deposit upfront as a sign of commitment for the appointment. Ask for their cancellation policy just to make sure you understood everything alright.

5. Be honest

It can happen during a reading that the medium might not picking up on your question or greatest desire. It is important to tell the medium that you are not happy with the reading within the first 10min of your reading. It gives the medium/psychic time to tune into you/or the spiritual world again to see what else is there to talk about.

You should be allowed to ask questions at any time and also keeping in mind that sometimes we hear things that we needed to hear but we don’t want to hear. This can be part of the reading as well. But most important, do speak up if you feel the reading is not for you or its going the wrong way!!!

In general just keep in mind the universal law of like attracts like. If you do your research with the right intentions I am sure you will find the right medium for you.

Why distant healing works and is more powerful than you think

Over the years there have been many names given to the phenomena of distant healing, such as energy healing, aura healing, shamanic healing, spiritual healing intercessory prayer, energy psychology, remote healing, non-local healing. It is truly a fascinating subject which sometimes can just go over our heads because it is hard to comprehend. Distant healing is a well established faculty and term in spiritual circles. Over the years even science showed its interest in distant healing phenomena and came up with some astonishing proof.

This new understanding on the power of distant healing will add some great value to our approach on healing body, mind and spirit. But it also opens our horizons for something that has always been around but we somehow forgotten about – the ability to actively influence energy.

For more then fifty thousand years shamans and other native healers knew about the abilities of being able to heal others, not only 1:1 but also via distant. They practised this form of healing

Next to their knowledge about plants and other herb medicines. They never doubted the power and usefulness of their healing practice.

If we do some more research in other cultures and religions we will find that the use of spiritual healing and its incredible results are recorded throughout history.

But we don’t need to be spiritual nor do we need to be religious to gain real proof of spiritual healing or distant healing experiences. Furthermore why not try a simple technique that Arthur Powell mentioned in his book ‘The Mental Body’ and see the results for yourself.

A strong wish for a friends good, sent to him as general protection agency will remain about him as a thought form for a time proportional to the strength of the thought, and will guard him against evil, acting as a barrier against hostile thoughts, and even warding of physical dangers. A thought of peace and consolation similarly sent will soothe and calm the mind, spreading around its object an atmosphere of calm.”

So why not send some loving thoughts to a friend or family member and find out how his situation or his feelings have changed by you doing that. The result will surprise you and I dare to say that you will try to convince yourself it was only coincidence and not your thoughts who made all the difference. At the early stages it is difficult to allow our minds to comprehend our full potential, nothing less please just give it a try for yourself.

More and more scientist are convinced that they have found the missing ling that would explain how spiritual healing or remote healing works. The answer we seeking for is hidden in the world of quantum physics lets explore this world a little bit deeper.

1. Quantum and remote healing how it actually works

To keep a complicated subject easy, its enough to know that: Quantum is the Latin word for amount and, in modern understanding, means the smallest possible discrete unit of any physical property, such as energy or matter.” (http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/quantum 2018)

Scientist do believe that everything is made of quantum particles and that these quantum particles can actually be influenced and change their physical behaviour/states dependent on how the method they are influenced by. In many experiments they found out that it is actually possible to influence matter only with our thoughts and also to transfer thoughts to another person via distance. Which is quite a powerful faculty if it is properly trained. You might experienced something like that in your life before, when you thought of someone and suddenly the phone rang and it was actually the person you thought of. This is not coincidence and unfortunately no kind of mysticism but real physics and does work.

In 1920 Arthur E. Powell published a book “The mental body” in which he states: “If a person thinks strongly of a form in the physical brain he makes the form in etheric (Subatomic or quantum) matter in the effort of making the image he also sends out etheric waves in energy in every direction.” Here we can see that even back then people were aware on how powerful our thoughts can be.

Bruce Lipton Ph. D. a former cell biologist and professor at the National Institute of Health states in an interview very interesting how spiritual healing works on a cellular level.

When energy source entangles with another so that they interfere with each other it is called Entanglement….when one of the healers cells vibrates higher than the clients cells it becomes entangled, and the energy is lifted…”

This is a very profound and basic concept of the understanding in Quantum Physics. So Bruce Lipton says that the energy of one person can influence the energy of another person just by meeting each other. Or if we look at the statement above from Mr. Powell, that we can create powerful energy via thought transference.

The Persian physician Avicenna who is been said to have been one of the most significant physicians, astronomers, thinkers and writers of the Islamic Golden Age. Often was described as the father of early modern medicine stated, “The imagination of man can act not only on his own body but even on others and very distant bodies. It can fascinate and modify them, make them ill, or restore them to health.”

If we now look a little bit deeper into the understanding of quantum physics and its expression in distant healing we come across the term of non-locality. Dr. Larry Dossey speaks about this phenomena regarding Distant Mental effect in his book “Recovering the Soul”. In 1989 he created the concept of the non – local mind by stating:

 

“According to this concept, as we have seen throughout this book, consciousness cannot be completely localized or confined to specific points in space, such as brains or bodies, or to discrete points in time, such as the present moment.”

 

Wow, that is amazing, isn’t it? I mean, we have the scientist talking about quantum, we have others who speak about the power of thoughts. Then we have doctors and biologists who truly believe that we are able to transfer energy over a distance because thoughts can travel and consciousness doesn’t have the limitations of space and time. This is truly powerful and we can see all that which shamans and native healers knew already fifty thousand years ago, we are now able to have a proper scientific explanation.

How my distant healing & healing practice works

Even this new knowledge is absolutely fascinating I still have to say that the faculty of distant healing or remote healing needs to be trained properly. This is not only to make it more powerful and work properly but also that we understand the responsibilities and limitations that do come with it. It is very important to receive good and valuable training from a teacher to explore the possibilities of any healing but also to cultivate the faculty of distance healing.

Over the years I really had some amazing experiences in my healing practice that left myself stunned and surprised as well. Even I do know that spiritual healing, shamanic healing, energy healing and distance healing works, its power still amazes me. Furthermore the results and the healing progress of my clients make my work as a medium and healer so valuable.

On the other hand I also have seen quite the opposite when people start out being a medium and healer without even clearly knowing what they do. This can cause problems and more harm than good. I have created my own system in my healing practice which I follow with every client that contacts me to make sure that the healing can go ahead.

1. I speak to my clients before I arrange a healing session

It is very important to me to speak to any of my clients before I arrange a healing appointment with them. Only in this case I can find out if the energy of the client and my energy as a healer are in tune with each other. It also offers the opportunity to explain how I work and what to expect from a healing.

2. I don’t do any healing if the client is not committed

The healing progress can only take place if the clients is really committed to healing if that is not the case it is a waste of energy and time on both sides. This commitment can express itself in different situations such as sticking to the arranged appointment, paying on time for the session and following the advice that might be given after the session. A healing session/distant healing session takes a lot of preparation for the healer, the client should be aware of this too.

3. Distant Healing or other Healing Session don’t replace  seeing a doctor

Even distant healing or shamanic energy healing is very powerful and can really change your life, it is only complimentary. That means that you will still need to see a doctor if your health problems do require that. But a healing session will assist you to find deeper understanding of your issues as well as it will help you to activate your self-healing abilities.

4. You can’t be healed against your will and I will not heal anyone who doesn’t request it

This is very important to understand, because I frequently get emails and messages from people asking if I could do healing for this or that person. As much as I do understand that we do want to help someone in need, I will not and can’t interfere in someone else karma. People need to be open for healing if not, it goes against the morals and ethics I work with in my practice. I like to quote a statment from Arthur E. Powell from his book ‘The mental body’:

“Care must be taken not to control the patients will in any way. It is entirely wrong in principle for a man to try impose his will on another, even in order to make him do right. True growth is not helped by external coercion; the intelligence must be convinced, the emotions aroused and purified, before gain is made.”

Why not book your distant healing session  now and see how things will change?

My work as medium and healer is always based on the highest- good intentions for my clients. I am very committed to the standard of my work a follow a strict concept of morals and ethics.

Julie Jurgan – Medium – Healer – Soulactivist

Looking back after all these years of training, learning, studying and working as a medium and healer I know that I found my purpose. This is what I came here to do and even from an early age I was aware of my gifts but not sure how to use them. Born and raised in Germany, my mother a homeopath and my dad a business manager I found myself torn between my occupation and my calling. I already used my first tarot cards when I was 12 years and did “fun” readings for my friends but never thought that I was really gifted in that way. As much as my parents tried to give me a solid foundation in life and asked me to learn a proper job I soon found out that being a visual merchandiser wouldn’t make me happy at all.

I had to follow my own path and find out what my purpose here on earth was. When I was 18 I started travelling the world and meeting people I wouldn’t have met if I would have stayed where I grew up. It took me nearly seven years of searching, travelling and doubting my path till I reached the Arthur Findlay College. It was there where I started my medium & healing education on a serious level when I turned 27 which was in 2011.

Since 2014 I live permanently in the UK.

Medium Education:

Since then I learnt as much as I could possible gain from many different teachers at the Arthur Findlay College, many of them very well-known and acknowledged mediums and healers. I learnt from people like Paul Jacobs, John Johnson, Andy Byng, Stella Upton, Kitty Wood, Jacky Wright, Biaggio Tropeano, Lynn Parker.

In 2015 I finished my Mentorship program with certified “Medium of Excellence” from Tony Stockwell.

I studied Spiritualism with the Spiritualist National Union from 2012 – 2015 to give me a good foundation and knowledge about the origins and phenomena of Spiritualism.

Philosopher – Real, Ideal, and Representation

 

Consider what lay in-between
two atoms in space,
two points on a plane,
two dots on a page.

Imprecision separates all points of certainty,
which remain meaningless unless connected.

Divide, partition, then segregate the mind,
isolate all that’s intangible, abstract, or undefined.
Then what’s left is a value which is equal to
the sum of what is understandable,
or convenient for you.

Pain and Grief by Franco Santoro

“Pain and grief have been kept buried for ages, bred in secrecy and shame, wrapped by an ongoing conspiracy of smiles and well-being. Pain and grief are most healing and ecstatic emotions. Yes, sure, they can be hard, yet what makes them most devastating is the perverted idea that they are wrong, that they need to be hidden and fixed.

The greatest perversion I can conceive is the idea that illness and pain are a sign that there is something wrong in our life, that we have unresolved issues, that we have made mistakes. In this world everyone is bound to get ill, experience pain and die.

The greatest gift I can give to myself and the world is the joyful acceptance of this. Today I want to be real, I will not hide my pain as well as my happiness. I will not care if my gloomy face or desperate words cause concern or embarrassment in others. I do not need be fed with reassuring words about the beauty of life.

The beauty of life resides in the full acceptance of All That Is.”

Moonphase in Pisces – when we feel too much

The moon in Pisces days are normally very relaxing and smooth going days. People will think and act far more selflessly than on other days and show more compassion. These days are an ideal to actively listen to what the other has to say without judgement and without giving that good advice. The Pisces energy is a very dreamy energy and so soft and gentle in its nature that we easily drift away into other realms. The spheres of magic, illusion and fantasy are opening their doors to all those brave enough to walk through them. We might feel our psychic abilities heightened and the longing to connect with others and life on a deeper level than the normal.

ted.com

Everything that is out there, and hard to grasp seems to be very fascinating and adorable. We wonder, what lies beyond and we are ready to find out.

These days are perfect to take some time for yourself and do some daydreaming. Different than making concrete plans like Virgos or Capricorn would do we are now into the no boundary state. We just want to play around with what is possible and not worry about all that could go wrong. Pisces in moon days hold the potential of accumulating of ideas and visions, supernatural experiences and others but definitely not good days for making long lasting commitments. Too easily we would say yes to something today that we later might regret because there are no boundaries, there is no self today. These days is all about floating along rather than getting things done.

 

Staying home with a good book, some chocolate and a nice cup of tea would be a perfect Pisces moon day. Watch a movie, have nice food and spend some quality time with your partner, you will not regret the openness and all that comes with it.

Our sensitivity is very much stimulated and we should stay away from anything that could bring us out of balance. Pisces love their peace and quiet and they need more of that than other star signs. Not clearly knowing where the path leads the Pisces moon days invite us to try new ways and experiment with what else is possible but more in our minds than in practical reality. Its not a time to make a promise nor to sign a contract or an agreement. We might experience some confusion and should put things off that would need our focus or clarity of mind.

huffingtonpost.com

Pisces in Moon days are for the dreamers and the idealist. Those who dream the world into shape when no one is watching.

These days might also shine a light on our insecurities and low self-esteem because Pisces just feel too much. They often have abundance of compassion and caring thoughts for others but for themselves they tend not to spend enough time. It is important on these days to return to ourselves with the help of spiritual practices such as yoga, meditation, tai chi, or swimming.

al jumuha magazine

A walk in nature, on the beach or near water is also very good and brings the influence of these days even closer into our energy field.

We will need to try to keep positive and not to get stuck in depression or the overwhelming feeling that we are unable to change the world. One step at a time would be a good advice for Pisces in moon days, so we can realisticly achieve our goals. When the moon passes through Pisces we might also in need of extra encouragement or support as subconscious feelings and thoughts might find its way to the surface. It is a great day to arrange an appointment with a therapist that can help us to find deeper layers of ourselves and how to deal with them. We are open and receptive and want to uncover all that is hidden deep within ourselves, if we can find assistance or guidance to do that this definitely would be very helpful.

Nick Kerry.com

It is a brilliant day to seek out some advice from a psychic or a healer because all these things are positive supported by the Pisces energy. Be creative, listen to music, explore the unknown and try something new. It is a great day to let yourself go, spend the day in bed or in a retreat. Let go of boundaries and experience yourself in a state of oneness with the world. Trance dance and any other kind of ecstatic expression can be very beneficial these days. Pisces in moon makes us long for more to see beyond the ordinary and let go of this earthly suffering.

shamanic trance dance.com

Pisces are also often associated with addiction and all the problems that do come with it. From Co-dependency but also the intoxication of the body and its side-effects. On pisces moon days we need to be mindful not to end up in a place where we didn’t want to be – because there are no boundaries and going with the flow is so much more fun. Drug addiction and comfort eating can be an expression of Pisces energy but also these days offer the opportunity to exactly do some great work exactly on these problems.

When the moon passes through Pisces it is very advice able not to drink or smoke too much. Because of the sensitive energy we will experience everything more intense as usual which can have fatal results.

The Pisces are ruling the feet in our physical body and we should spend extra attention to these areas during Pisces days. A nice reflexology, a foot bath or seeing a podologist is very beneficial and can bring a lot of good.

The feet are on of the most sensitive areas in the whole body even many people won’t believe that. All the meridians of the whole body are coming down to the feet where they find their final destination. This is also why reflexology is so beneficial because it can help with all the inner organs and its problems.

Pisces Moon Days are great days to find some form of creative expression like singing, drawing or painting, cooking or just listening to music. If you are gifted in writing, than get your pen and paper ready and try to write some poetry.

What ever you do today, it is important that you are gentle with yourself. Take more time for a task then normal and do it in your own pace. Don’t allow a fixed schedule or anything or pressure to interfere in your day and try to make enough time and space for yourself to retreat. An Epsom Salt bath can work wonders on Pisces moon days and helps the body to detox. Drink plenty of water and be mindful to take a good rest during the day.

discovery magazine.com

Withdraw into your own world if you want to and make space for some subconscious work. Stay away from any toxins if possible and if you do take medication or smoke, especially during Pisces Moon days it would be beneficial to reduce the daily intake because everything has a bigger impact or influence today.

Try to take it easy, if you are emotional than allow your emotions to come and go. Don’t force or overthink too much as these days lead to heightened sensitivity and it can happen that we feel more than we normally do. It also indicates that we might feel more of what others go through and can easily mix it up thinking it would be our own feelings.

Poet – Midnight Oil

 

Look out! Late night scufflings,
the urge to pick up a pen.

Reflections endure into a scribbled word,
a scratching.

The impulse of inspiration
flares and burns.

Combustion sparks the circuit
that a muse fulfills.

Follow this intrigue,
the enthusiasm awakens the god within.

Automatic, rhythmical semantic,
a grammatical ghost then guides the hand.

Pisces by Franco Santoro

Within the cycle of the year, Pisces is crucial for it represents the culmination of the gestation of any intent or process set in motion at any time in the past, including at birth.

It is a very delicate period, in which new talents and gifts take solid shape and prepare for their outer emergence, yet in a context where we may still be unable to acknowledge and see what is actually emerging.

pic by 8tracks.com

This requires focus, care and alertness so as to embrace the opportunity of giving fruitful conscious birth to what truly aligns with our authentic potential, including the current planetary transformational shift. Each one of us is dealing with a specific element in this wider process of delivery. Here I want to underline that these elements gain considerable clarity, perspective and definition when they move from our personal limbo out into the collective. We can become truly aware of our emerging gifts and talents when we allow them to be visible and acknowledgeable by others, instead of breeding them in isolation.

After many years of working shamanically with people I have realised that the majority of individuals are unable to identify their own talents and often even regard them as negative or harmful. Hence they may continue to bury them for ages, unless they accidentally or forcefully happen to disclose them and receive positive feedback from others.

pinterest.com

Hence, when you notice something beautiful in the people you meet, even when it is so obvious and you feel it may appear stupid to point it out, well, please be honest and appreciate them anyway. What is obvious for you may not be obvious at all for the person involved.

Pisces is a huge melting pot, thriving on connections and all forms of blending, inviting us to surrender to the multidimensional ocean of life and death, sharing who we are and receiving the sharing of others, in an ongoing process of giving and receiving, which eventually loses sight of the outdated difference between subject and object, ecstatically proclaiming the unexpurgated and immaculate wholeness of our nature. Deep breath…

Among all the signs of the zodiac, Pisces is the one closest to the experience of multidimensional realities. Placed in the last stage of the zodiacal path, it represents all potential peaks in human consciousness. Here the zodiac circle reaches its final stage and can either face a quantum leap, moving into a brand new definition, or get back to sector one (Aries), repeating the same cycle all over again.

vexingquestions.wordpress.com

Pisces holds the key to the forbidden threshold of the zodiac, the one that allows the shift into the multidimensional realm, the movement into the spiralling cycle and the release of the karmic wheel. Hence, during the period of Pisces, it is easy to experience confrontations with threshold situations, glimpses of alternative lives and parallel universes, together with feelings of bewilderment, confusion or fear, as they are perceived by our ordinary identities.

Alignment with the essence of Pisces bestows the capacity to unveil multidimensional portals or itineraries. This is possible or easier when blocks and grievances have been effectively released through journeys in the preceding signs. When this is not the case, Pisces may become an excruciating vortex of hallucinations and turmoil.

youtube.com

Pisces includes the whole spectrum of identities we employ to voyage in the intricate landscape of our multidimensional self. Hence in Pisces resides the possibility of either unveiling their common source or preserving their separation.

pic by deviantart.com

Pisces has a close association with Dionysus, also known as Bacchus, the god of ecstasy, trance and dance. Similarly to Pisces, its origins and nature are confused and assorted.

 

According to one myth he is the son of Zeus and a mortal woman (Semele), who is killed by Zeus himself while Dionysus is still in her womb. Dionysus is then exceptionally born from the thigh of Zeus. Given that Hera was furious about this birth, Zeus entrusted Dionysus to the Hyades, a group of nymphs who disguised the god as a girl and raised him as an androgyne. In the Orphic mysteries Persephone, queen of the Underworld, is the mother of Dyonisus, whereas in the Elusinian mysteries it is Demeter.

All major references in the Dionysian mysteries are common features of shamanic initiation practices such as dismemberment, trance dance, communion rites, vision quest, sacred embrace, sacrifice, including the Basic Ritual of the Sacred Cone. In the Dionysian and other mystery traditions, ordinary ethics, social status and comfort have never been an element of concern. Their primary focus is gaining multidimensional awareness, which often involves radically infringing ordinary taboos and conventions.
