About Transition

written by Julie

“In the space between chaos and shape there was another chance.”

– Jeanette Winterson

I want to dedicate these thoughts, especially to three people who reached out and shared their personal story of transition with me. (- You know who you are! R, M, R)

I would like to thank you for your trust and the inspiration I found in your stories, so I might be able to hand my thoughts out to everyone who is in the same situation at the moment. That someone who is in need of some comfort, understanding and guidance during this very special phase in life. Keep going, you are nearly there!

Transition describes a passage or a state of being, maybe circumstances that could be seen as in between. The space between worlds, the stillness between the old and the new. A very special place, where there is no wind, or rain, no sun or blue sky. It is just as it is and holds within all that has ever been and all that is yet to come. A part of nothingness with the potential of all possibilities at the same time. I meet you there.

Through our lives we pass through different stages. From one position to the next, from one place to another, from one state of being into the next. This is a natural law and it does affect everyone and everything. We more than often been asked to progress even if we don´t want to, but life is calling us. Into another direction, another purpose or to change our concept. We are asked to give up the old, that we can grow into the new. Sometimes it is our decision to do so, sometimes it just happens and even somehow we always knew it, but we ignored it. Suddenly we are there, to be asked to let go. Leave it all behind and step into the unknown. During those times we often feel very vulnerable, we walk in little baby steps as somehow we not sure where we going to. We often not sure if we progress at all, as it doesn ´t feel like so.

Depending on your personal circumstances the state of transition can be experienced differently and more than often is followed by one or more of these emotions: fear, anxiety, guilt, shame, blame, self-doubts, but also joy, release and excitement. It is a shift of energies and happens all the time, everyday, but so subtle that we hardly aware of it.

If you go through the stage of transition at the moment, I would like to invite you to experience this very special state of being in nature. As on a very profound basis, transition takes place everyday when the sunrises and the sunsets, When the yin energy changes into the yang to become the yin again. Night is followed by day is followed by night and so on. It is a natural rhythm, such as the sun rises in the morning, reaches its peak and then slowly sets down over the afternoon till it disappears in the evening. So transition and change takes place everyday all the time and it is not a fixed term. Furthermore it is a movement. When was the last time you have taken some time to watch a sunrise, or sunset? When was the last time you spend some time at the sea and saw the ebb and flow playing their endless game of coming and going? Becoming and letting go?

In our personal lives, transition can be experienced in days, weeks or even years. A slow process of growing out of the old into the new you. Its seems as suddenly we need more space, or less, more inspiration, energy or less. It does not matter if you expand or reduce, it is always a change of the old into the new.
You might decided to quit your job, because you don´t like it, you want more free time, but you have not found a new one yet. This time can be really scary. As our minds or ego longs for security, safety, for the so-called known.
You might just stopped an addictive behaviour and you still feel that wanting to be high and numb. You are frustrated as you are not totally free yet. Or you feel so scared as suddenly all the emotions that have been suppressed for such a long time are coming to the surface.
You might split up with your partner and thought you have gone through it all. Suddenly something makes you feel frightened, that you might never be able to find love again.
You might have gone through financial struggles, now you back on track, but you still got racing thoughts about, what if this happens again?
Our disconnected minds are desperately projecting the future, judging the past and not able to rest in the now. But our soul knows better, our soul is connected to the natural rhythms of nature.

Breath! Stop for a moment! Transition takes time. Digesting the experienced, stepping slowly into the new you is a process. Even if you chose to be happy from now on, it doesn´t work from one day to the other. Be patient with yourself!

Growing passes through critical moments, the moment when you slightly fall back into old belief systems, patterns and behaviours. When you struggle, stumble, you nearly fall and in the last moment you don´t. Because history does not always repeat itself, especially if we decided not to do so. Growth holds within the opportunity of change, the change for the better. If you decide to take it on. You need to be the change, you need to make it happen, but in between, find some rest in the state of transition.
The transition state is there for a reason: To reflect, observe, not to judge. Let it be there, just as it is. You don´t need to wish it any different, the past won´t change. Embrace it in all the pain, the despair, the hopelessness and negativity. It was there for a reason, you might don´t see it yet. Stop asking, don´t look for logical answers. Furthermore accept it. Let it go. Step into the emptiness of the unknown.
Call it void, blankness, emptiness or bareness. Allow it to empty you. And then allow it to fill you. Be silent. Be still. Feel. Experience. Stop for a moment, breath, hold on and then let it go.
In this state, there are no plans to be made. No decisions to take. No options to choose from. It is the state of nothingness. The silence between the old and the new you. The space between one world and another. Allow yourself to float around, to be carried by the promise that there is a new dawn, just waiting for you. But for now, its time to heal. Let existence heal you.

Just be.

Past Lives – The unresolved mystery

written by Julie

Do you believe in past lives? You think you have lived before as someone else? Or do you think, it is impossible and there is absolutely no reason to believe in previous lives?

Whatever you think, you probably right. Past lives are still an unresolved mystery and always good to start controversial discussion. Some people are convinced they have been here before, others are sceptic. Over the centuries many religious philosophical concepts have been created to discover the truth about the unchanging self, the soul. Some of these concepts strongly belief in the necessity of reincarnation and others totally deny this idea. To give you a brief insight, I tried to put some of main religious view together and compared their ideas. I am not responsible for the correctness of these information, I just searched in the internet and put together what I found:

Christianity: The Bible says, that man is created in God´s image, with both a material body and an immortal soul & spirit. So when we die we go to hell or to heaven, that depends how we lived and praised the Creator. Any memories of past lives must be from other living beings, souls of dead humans in purgatory or hell, or demons. The Bible is speaking of a resurrection to everlasting life as a spirit being— not simply a temporary restoration to life in a physical body. In several places in the Bible individuals were restored to physical life prior to the resurrection of Jesus. But they all died again. ( -ucg.org 2015)

Judaism: Its been said that souls go after bodily death to the World of Souls and the souls there do exist in disembodied states. Resurrection as such is not reincarnation, it is the reunification of the soul with the former body, into the world to come. Purpose of resurrection is the reward body with eternity and the soul with higher perfection. Resurrection is a time of reward, reincarnation is a time for preparing. Resurrection is a time of reaping, reincarnation a time of sowing. As long as a person is unsuccessful in his purpose in this world, the Holy One, uproots him and replant him over and over again.

Islam: When a person dies, God takes his/her soul. A soon as a human dies a is barrier immediately in place. This barrier prevents his/her from returning to earth. This barrier is maintained until the day of resurrection.

Buddhism: There is no eternal soul as such, but a stream of consciousness. There are 5 or 6 realms of existence including the human form. Any kind of animal and several types of supernatural being. In Tibetan Buddhism its been said that it is very rare to be reborn in immediate next life as a human.

Hinduism: Its been said that you reincarnate as another living being, that depends on your karmic inheritance.

So great, where we are going from here now? Many different point of views, how can we ever know who is right or wrong? Can science help by looking into the different aspects of Quantum physics?

If we do agree that consciousness is eternal, made and consists of energy so it can´t be destroyed nor created, it will always exist somehow. Somewhere.

There are people they say, it is not of any value for them to know if they lived before or not, others don´t care if their consciousness does survive physical death. That is alright, not everyone is interested or open for the same things. But once you start out on the road less travelled to explore whats inside of you, you will reach that crossroad and ask yourself this question. Who am I?

You will explore your physical self, its limitations and blockages, your limited mind and brain with all its belief systems, certain habits and behaviours. But you also will explore a lot of gifts and talents you have, things you like and dislike. All of that forms the unique you, or that what you think is you. Someone could argument now, well we all have been raised by our parents (or someone elses), been educated, programmed, trained since we were born. Of course we picked up on mannerism and characteristics, we might have certain genetic dispositional and our minds and brains have been shaped over the years. And still there is something inside of us that is not that easy to grasp, but that also is part of our very being. That something could be named as your soul and is with you since you were born, or maybe before?

It is very hard to explain, but your soul maybe creates something inside of you that is difficult to explain. Something that creates a dull, an urge, a calling inside of you and you have no idea why or where it is coming from. You feel drawn to something, a place, a person and you can´t explain why? You might discover gifts and talents, interests that have nothing to do with your family or relatives. You feel very much at home at places you never visited before, suddenly you remember things and you can´t explain why or where this came from. I am not talking about visions with your third eye, this goes deeper, this creates something inside of you. A longing, a desire and somehow it seems like not from this world, as you can´t explain it logically, but somehow it is calling you. Something inside of you remembers. There are a lot of books on the market about past lives and they are all different.

But I found the one very interesting which were about children who remembered and spoke about previous lives. There is a little girl in the USA born to american parents and never been to Japan and not connection to Japan whatsoever. Suddenly when this girl turned two, she started to speak Japanese and longed for eating fish and rice. The parents very obviously irritated.

There is another example of a little boy from Scotland who remembered his past life and really got upset and depressed because he missed his former mother that much. I put his video here: ( and if you want to discover your past life why not arrange an appointment with our Past Life Regressionist Sukirat?)

Prayer

Julie Jurgan – About Prayer

A prayer is a really powerful, spiritual practice. Unfortunately more and more people are stepping back from that kind of connection with the Universal Life Force as it is so close associated with religion.

“A religion is an organized collection of beliefs, cultural systems, and world views that relate humanity to an order of existence. Many religions have narratives, symbols, and sacred histories that aim to explain the meaning of life, the origin of life, or the Universe.”

– Wikipedia 2015

Over the centuries the missuse of religious practice has caused deep wounds in our own belief systems, hearts and souls. But the denial of the longing for a deep connection with the universe does not bring us any further. Its time to heal the wounds by stepping into a new form of connection. Walking away from blind belief systems but exploring what is all about by paving our own path. Our very personal connection with all that is. You don´t need to belief in any religion to practice spirituality or prayer. Furthermore finding your own words, truth and expression is the most powerful gift you can give to yourself and the world. As your soul is the unique expression of the Life force.

Somehow I have the feeling that we are just at the turning point to step into the next ignorance if we turn our back against spiritual practice no matter if its religiously based or personally. By saying that I mean, that we closing ourselves up to any kind of connection with the universe and its expressions. But I do think its even the very most time to step into the power that lies within and without as these can´t be seperated. It is time to realize how powerful we really are, if we allow life to work through us.
There is a deep longing inside all of us, the longing to connect with all that is. The Whole, the One, the Source. Prayer can be a way to step into that power of the soul to remind us that we are always connected and have always been. Seperation is an illusion.
I am just in the process myself to open up to a new form of thinking and practicing prayers to allow them being part of my daily spiritual practice. From my own experience I can say, that miracles do happen..to those you do allow them to happen. To those who allow to be moved by life, God, the source, universal mind..whatever you call it.

At the moment I do read a very intersting book by Ernest Holmes – therefor I would like to share a prayer with you, I have been practicing today. It might inspires you…it might resonates with you…it might not. You can meditate on prayer, read them, speak them out loud. Let them become a daily practice to remind yourself how powerful and beautiful you really are. Because you are all that is and all that is is You!
The prayer for today from Ernest Holmes is called: I keep the promise

“I shall keep the promise that I have made to myself.
I shall never again tell myself that I am poor, sick, weak nor unhappy.
I shall not lie to myself any more, but shall daily speak the truth to my inner Soul, telling It that It is wonderful and marvelous; that It is One with the Great Cause of all Life; Truth, Power and Action.
I shall whisper these things into my Soul until it breaks forth into songs of joy with the realization of Its Limitless possibilites.
I shall assure my Soul”

All about a Psychic Medium

Do you think, that the work of a medium is contacting and talking to the dead?
You are right, it is an important part of a medium’s work, to prove the continous existence of the human soul. To give evidence of the survival of your Loved-Ones as well as to give messages from the spirit world. But not only your Loved-Ones can bring words of comfort but also other spirits (Spirit Guides) can deliver words of wisdom, give healing, guidance and support to you. A medium can beautifully connect the two worlds and help people recover from the trauma of missing their dear ones post their demise. In addition to that can a connection with the othe realm a very healing and profound experience as there is so much more than we can see with our naked eyes

This other aspect of the work that a medium can do, is, to offer spiritual guidance through a psychic reading. In this case, the medium connects with your soul, rather than with the spiritual realms. The session with a medium should be like, a look in the mirror and just reflect yourself as pure as you are. Considering the free will of everyone, the right to make choices and the understanding, that personal responsibility can never be given to anyone other then their own selves.
There are many different mediums, with individual abilities, aspects and tools they use for their work. There are two levels on which a (developed) medium could work:

Mediumistic Level – ( Connecting with the spiritual world)

On this level the medium connects with the spiritual world, it is important to have a reason, the right purpose before doing that, as well as good Intentions. These depends on the mediums personal development and Clients requirements as well as environmental factors:

Atmosphere is very important for any kind of energetic work

These reason or purpose to connect with the spiritual realms could be:

Evidence of Survival – Contacting with loved Ones
Channeling words of wisdom – Philosophy- Guidance – Inspiration
Healing energies – Healers/ Trance Healing
Phenomena – Physical Mediumship

While the medium connects with the spiritual realms,a download of wisdom, energies from another sphere happens. ( A lot of this depends on the mediums education, training and personal development stage).
The contact with Loved ones from the spiritual world is possible, but it is up to every medium, if they can provide evidence of the continuous existence of the human soul. This evidence could include: gender, relationship to client, age, name, how the loved passed over, personality, shared memories, hobbies, jobs. If this happens correctly the client is able to identify the Loved-One and also builds trust on the medium.
Environment has a huge impact on the quality of the session. A bond of mutual trust and acceptance between client and medium is most desirable. A good medium is a channel, through which the spiritual world is working. Hence a lot of session clarity depends on the mediums abilities and their stage of development.

Psychic Level – ( Soul to Soul Connection)

On the Psychic Level the medium connects with the clients soul. It is well-known as the Auric field, the energy body that surrounds our physical body also know as the Aura. The medium is able to read emotions, memories and happenings of client’s life by scanning his/her auric field. Emotions, thoughts, actions and memories are stored in this energetic body. I believe, that soul is on an eternal journey, therefore the auric field is continuously changing, with every new experience and thought we have.
A spiritual guidance adds more clarity of a situation or problem and offers different aspects how to deal with it. It also encourages client to follow their soul’s path, which we all know, but sometimes just need to be reminded.

The psychic reading can be for:

Finding your true potential
Becoming aware of obstacles and blockages
Raising personal awareness
How to unfold your spiritual potential
Reflecting yourself as pure as you are

The mediums work is never a future prediction in any way. The medium may just guide us with possible outcomes, however it is up to you to make the necessary changes in their lives. It is all about our personal responsibility and we can´t give this to any one else.

During a session both of the above mentioned techniques can be used to help the client. The client can make a preference of what kind of a session they would want.

If you are interested in gettting a reading with a medium you can do this via our website. Julie is great medium and uses her different aspects of her psychic abilities to assist people on their path.
