Old, Romantic “Paranormal” Movies to Watch this Halloween

Tags

, , , , , , ,

I love movies. Especially romantic, sweep-me-off -my -feet movies, with hot chocolate and rocky road ice cream. I love the first kiss, the bittersweet good bye, the whole lost you and found you happily ever after thing.

I’ve read that some people believe romantic comedies are very bad for a girl. They are like the binge of the mind. We get so fat with the fantasy that we forget the real thing. But I disagree. I believe a good romantic comedy should be just as rich and magical as chocolate cake. It should have laughter, and magic and a happy ending. Real girls (and women) love fairytales, it is like taking a mental bubble bath.

Some of my favorite romances laced with the mystical and magical elements that represent the power of love. These films took love beyond our imagination, love that transcended the ages. It showed love as the power that binds throughout any dimension you happen to be on.

The following are some of my favorite romantic movies with a paranormal flavor. I’ll admit some of these movies are a bit “old” but still spark the imagination.

jordanHere comes Mr. Jordan (the remake is Heaven can Wait. with Warren Beatty and another remake was with Chris Rock, in Down to Earth)  This is a delightful film with Claude Raines as Mr. Jordan, and Robert Montgomery as Joe the Boxer, who is mistakenly taken to heaven before his time. Mr. Jordan has to give Joe a second chance. However Joe cannot take his own body back, he has to take the body of someone else. (Robert Montgomery was the father of Elizabeth Montgomery, star of Bewitched. ). That someone else is a crooked millionaire. So Joe rights a wrong and gets a second chance.

What is Clarivoyance?

Tags

, ,

goddessClairvoyance is a French word that literally means “clear seeing.” This is what clairvoyants are able to do, is see things that others cannot. Clairvoyants have a highly attuned psychic awareness of their environment and the people they meet.

Clairvoyants believe that everybody is psychic to some degree. For example, have you ever known something off the top o your head without understanding how or why or been aware of who was calling you on the phone before you answered it?  Clairvoyants are still different from the rest of us, however. It is believed  they either are born with a higher level of these powers, or have developed them over a number of years. It’s like someone being born with a keen sense of sight or smell, a clairvoyant is someone with a higher developed “sixth sense.”

witchonbroomSince the beginning of time, witches have been around. In old civilizations they were known as the wise women, or healers. The word “witch” actually means “‘one who has knowledge of plants.” These healers were the first doctors of the village who diagnosed illnesses and healed with natural elements.

These wise women and men would create talismans, charms, potions, spells and spell incantations to ward off evil spirits; therefore it is ironic that these women would later be portrayed as evil, burned at the stake and persecuted for trying to heal people. From these medieval beliefs rose what we now see as a “wicked witch” green skin, warts and all.

Throughout the ages people have been fascinated by witches and have added to the lore of what we see now as a witch. Some very familiar nursery rhymes, plays and stories are said to come from the witches themselves.

Who was the Goddess of the Soul?

The Goddess of the Soul and Mother of All Psychics

The Story of Psyche Explains Psychic Abilities

psycheThe hard definition of the word “psychic”, according to Webster’s, is a person who is sensitive to nonphysical or supernatural forces and influences : marked by extraordinary or mysterious sensitivity, perception, or understanding. The word comes from the Greek Psyche, meaning soul.

Psyche earned her title as the Goddess of Soul because of the various feats she had to accomplish to prove her worthiness as the bride of the Greek God Eros, or Cupid in Roman mythology.

Anyone who is familiar with the story of “Beauty and the Beast” knows the story of Psyche and Eros. The story is about the journey into the mind and soul connection. In the story, Psyche is a beautiful mortal princess. She is known everywhere as the most beautiful woman in the world, thus making the Goddess Aphrodite angry and jealous. Aphrodite sends her son, Eros, to shot an arrow into Psyche so that she can fall in love with the ugliest man on earth. Eros sees the princess sleeping and is so overcome by her beauty that he accidently pierces himself with his own arrow and falls desperately in love with Psyche. Eros then disappears knowing his mother would be angry when she found out that he didn’t do his job.

Aphrodite gets tired of waiting for Psyche to fall in love with a beast so she casts a spell so that no suitors would come looking for Psyche’s hand in marriage. Psyche’s mother is distraught and goes to the oracle, which tells her that her daughter would never marry a mortal man, but is destined to marry the one on the mountain where a fearful God and monster lived. The family tearfully takes Psyche to the mountain where Eros secretly waits for her. He marries her while he is in disguise. She is not allowed to look at Eros’ face, and feels she has married a monster, whom she falls in love with because of his kindness. One night she looks at Eros by putting the candle over his face and discovers she’s actually married to the most beautiful man she’d ever seen, the monster story had been a sham.Beauty and the Beast

Aphrodite finds out and puts Psyche through a series of almost impossible tasks to prove she is worthy of marrying a God. After much suffering, Psyche proves herself worthy and becomes the Goddess of the Soul because of the “insights” she gained during her journey towards true love, which is actually universal love.

The word “psychic” has come to describe a person who sees beyond the physical world. To be psychic doesn’t mean you have supernatural powers, but that the “insights” of this individual are enhanced because they see space, between material things. Psyche’s experiences revealed insights into true love as she went through each feat.

Among one of her challenges was to spend the night in a room filled with assorted grains and to have them all sorted and bagged by daybreak. Realizing the enormity of the task, Psyche huddled in the corner weeping, when an army of ants took pity on her and came to her aid, getting the job done for her well in advance of the deadline.

This example shows how we can communicate to other living things, whether ants, dogs, cats, trees, and we can manifest what we want by being in the ONENESS of everything, by going with the flow.

psyche-goldenramIn a second challenge, Psyche was ordered to bring back the Golden Fleece belonging to a fearsome ram that had already killed several heroes who had tried to acquire his fleece. Terrified that she too would be crushed, Psyche took the advice of a nearby reed that whispered to her to wait until nightfall when the ram slept before entering the field and to gather the fleece that had fallen off the ram and clung to the branches of the blackthorn trees.

This example is a perfect illustration of how psychics gain their information. Psyche listens to a REED that whispers to her. Just like psychics quietly stop and “listen” to what is going on around them. They listen to the “voice” in the head coming out of nowhere, giving them the information they need.

Everyone is psychic because everyone has a spirit. As Dr. Wayne Dyer says, “we are spiritual beings, having human experiences.” As spiritual beings we can see the meaning of the “space.” For example, if you go outside and try to look at the space between the trees, the leaves, the ground, to see the space between the material, you can then begin to SEE and know how everything is one, and everything is connected. You also begin to see what you’ve never seen before, or gain insights during this exercise that is extraordinary, even supernatural.

A true psychic sees what others don’t see because of this “space” because in space there is oneness. The space between our cells, between the table and chair, between a pen and paper, it’s all “spirit” or soul, which is exactly what connects everything.

A person who is “sensitive” to this space is one who can see what “normal” people can’t see. Others who say psychic abilities do not exist, or who claim they have no psychic abilities have not been “awakened.” They are blinded by ego, by cultural traditions and religious dogma and cannot see what is there. People born more highly “sensitive” or those who go through near death experiences, like Psyche, are more in tuned to what is not physically there, they see in four dimensions, not in two or three as regular people do.

 

Autism, Indigo, Crystal and Rainbow Children in the New Age

Tags

, , , ,

Every year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issues an autism prevalence report. The report concludes autism has risen to 1 in every 88 births in the United States and almost 1 in 54 boys.  The awareness of this condition has grown in the past 10 years. Some people think vaccines, or food allergies cause autism and others believe that as we’ve grown in technical advancements we’ve come to recognize autism or the autism spectrum which includes anything from ADHD to a catatonic state of being to people with incredible strokes of genius. Many spiritualists and mystics have come to see the increase of autistic children as a generation of people who may very well be ushering in the New Age.

There are a lot of special souls out there, some with mild Autism, some with severe but all here for a spiritual purpose. These souls are advanced in wisdom and compassion and vibrate at a high energy.
They help us calibrate our consciousness so we can function in a more “attuned way” and recognize our inner oneness with God or our Source. They do this in a variety of ways. Even those souls in the most catatonic state are able to bring those around them to a higher level of compassion, understanding and patience thus creating for a closer walk with source to those who know them.

Mystics and psychics have come to see these special children as Indigo or Crystal and Rainbow children. Each has their own set of theories or traits to help a parent recognize if their child is exhibiting new age traits. For example:

Indigo children may be the square peg that everyone wants to put in a round hole. They usually act out in classrooms particularly because they are not “fitting” in with an old standard of education that doesn’t fit everyone anymore. These children are revolutionaries; they have a warrior spirit that smashes old systems that no longer serve us.  Educators are most likely to change education just by finding new ways of teaching to accommodate these special children. Many are diagnosed or misdiagnosed as ADD or ADHD kids. Yet spiritually they are here to make changes in government and politics and systems that are outdated and don’t fit our new high tech world.

indigo

Indigo children have an indigo blue aura. This is the color of the “third eye chakra,” which is an energy center inside the head located between the two eyebrows. This chakra regulates clairvoyance, or the ability to see energy, visions and spirits. Many parents of Indigo children may experience telepathic messages from their kids. The parent and child communicate without speaking. These children are highly intelligent, particularly when it comes to exercising their sixth sense.

Some indigo children may show an incredible amount of talent in mechanics, mathematics or science. Others may have a particular talent for growing food or cooking it, sewing and creating useful items.

Crystal children also have high levels of telepathic gifts, so much so that some may not talk until they are three or four-years old. In the New Age these children are highly intuitive and sensitive, unlike some labeled “autistic” some are extremely affectionate and loving.

crystal

The first thing that most people notice about them is their eyes—large, penetrating and wise beyond their years.  If you ever look into a baby’s eyes and see an old soul then you’ve just met a crystal child. The Crystal Children’s eyes lock on and hypnotize you, while you realize your soul is being laid bare for these children to see. This special new “breed” of children is rapidly populating our planet. They are happy, delightful and forgiving.

This generation of new light workers, is like no previous generation, they are more intuitive and higher thinkers, some display an incredible amount of genius particularly in the arts. They lead the way when it comes to caring for animals and the planet. Ideal in many ways, Crystal Children are the pointers for where humanity is headed . . . and it’s a good direction!

Rainbow children as the name implies, the Rainbow children come to earth with a few more gifts other spectrum of ray color. They are born on the ninth dimension of consciousness, the dimension of collective consciousness. It is believe this is their first time on earth and are spiritually highly evolved.

rainbow

Doreen Virtue, a popular author on Angels and special children says, “The Rainbow children are perfectly balanced in their male and female energies. They are confident without aggressiveness; they are intuitive and psychic without effort; they are magical and can bend time, become invisible, and go without sleep and food. The Crystal children’s sensitivities make them vulnerable to allergies and rashes. The angels say that the Rainbow children will have overcome this aspect… Rainbow children have no karma, so they have no need to choose chaotic childhoods for spiritual growth…The Rainbow children operate purely out of joy, and not out of need or impulse. The babies will be recognized, because their energy is one of giving to parents, and not of neediness. Parents will realize that they cannot out-give their Rainbow children, for these children are a mirror of all actions and energy of love. Whatever loving thoughts, feelings, and actions that you send to them are magnified and returned a hundred-fold.”

According to Virtue, the angels explained that the Rainbow Children were the generation after the Crystal Children, who came after the Indigo children. Rainbows are highly sensitive, loving, forgiving, and magical like the Crystal Children. The difference is that the Rainbows have never before been on earth, so they have no karma to balance. The Rainbows, therefore, choose entirely peaceful and functional households. They don t need chaos or challenges to balance karma or grow.

All three generations of children, Indigos, Crystal Children or Rainbow children are here to teach us something whether the child is severely disabled or an incredible genius, or anything in between. Physically these children may come with what the medical community labels as “disabled” yet many of them are far from that and are teaching us a thing or two. The best news is these children bring us all closer to God or our source in some ways.

10 Ways to Attract Romantic Love into Your Life!

loveLove truly is one of the most fascinating and wondrous experiences of our human existence. I believe we are here on this planet to learn what real love is all about. We are constantly seeking out love because it helps us rise to a higher level of self. And although there are all kinds of feelings we describe as love I believe we probably incarnate as humans just so we can FEEL the bittersweet bliss of real romantic love. But how do we attract real romantic love into our lives, how do we attract the soul mate we seek in this lifetime? Surprisingly enough it doesn’t require a lot of work. You don’t have to go on online dating sites or seek out social situations to find someone to love you. It’s not about that because we first have to believe that love is there for us and that we are worthy and deserve to be loved.

You must remember to have a bit of faith. Know your lover is coming into your life soon. Believe it and see it and then let it go.  Stop looking for him/her to come. Instead focus on these 10 ways to attract love into your life.

  1. Laugh and laugh often. Raise your vibration with laughter. Watch funny movies, or hang out with friends who make you laugh. When you are joyful, love has a funny way of showing up. Everyone wants to be with the “happy” person at the party. So you attract others into your life when you are joyful, laughing or just generally happy with your life over all. Laughter truly is the best medicine.
  2. Learn to accept people for who they are. They won’t change, you can’t change them so accept them. The more patience you have with others who may not fit your standard the happier you’ll be. This also raises you to a higher vibration because with acceptance comes unconditional love. And you may not love these people romantically, but you’ll love them more fully when you accept them.
  3. Learn to accept love. You can do this by loving yourself first. and loving yourself enough not to take crumbs of affection from anyone. If a person is not that into you, then let them go and move on. Loving yourself is the first step in being open to accept real love, because then someone who matches your spirit and sees you for who you really are will be attracted to you. Also when you love yourself you send a signal out that you are quite ready to accept real love from someone who will respect you and adore you.
  4. Learn to be happy for others. The whole idea of attracting love is putting love out there. Being happy for someone one else’s happiness not only uplifts you as an individual it sends out the vibration of good will. That comes back to you in the form of love as well and attracts more love into your life. You can truly experience love and joy when you learn to make their happiness and well being a priority, then you can’t go wrong.
  5. Learn to believe in yourself and believe you are worth it. Sometimes we make the mistake of accepting the love we think we deserve. Some of us “settle” for the first one who asks, or just settles for someone because you feel that’s the best you can do or that NO one will ever want to love you in the way you would want. Love yourself enough NOT to settle, don’t fall into the traps of peer or family pressures, stick to your guns and believe and know the right person is coming into your life.
  6. Learn to look at the beauty in others: The true beauty of a person is their imperfection not their perfect points. When you can look at someone and appreciate them for who they are it makes your life so much more fulfilling. This includes friends and family members, those people who annoy you most are there for a reason. To bring you to a higher level of understanding and to learn to love them warts and all. They bring you to a higher level of wisdom and tolerance and when you have these qualities others begin to take notice. Always strive to find the good in people, finding faults is a waste of time and energy.
  7. Learn to have fun and be weird. Life is weird. Weird things happen, some are funny, some are sad, but the whole point is the journey. Have fun in this journey of life, learn to be adventurous and take a few risks. Dance like no one is watching. Enjoy the beat of your own tune. Explore social activities you’ve never done before, like ice skating or ball room dance lessons. Be crazy and enjoy your life. Everyone is attracted to the one who is in love with life weirdness and all.
  8. Be generous and never be afraid to express your love often. Be generous with your time when it comes to friends or family or potential partners. Tell your parents or kids you love them and do it often. Spend time with an aging parent or grandparent or someone else’s grandparent. Hug and hug often. Kiss the ones you love and who love you. Kissing is good in every form. Don’t take people you love for granted, remember to say I love you.
  9. Learn to avoid too much drama. When it comes to partners, families or friends, it’s okay to walk away and not be “right.” Sometimes people will bring you their problems or put you in the middle of things. It’s best to bow out. Know when it’s not your place to “fix” anything and walk away. You don’t have to be “right” allow your friends or loved ones to vent and just listen. Avoid drama keeps you at a higher frame of mind and open to attracting love into your life, simply because you feel good about walking away.
  10. Learn to let go. Letting go of the past can be such a relief! It’s like dropping the chains that bind you and looking at things in a whole new light. The fabulous Dr. Seuss once said: “don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened!” It’s so true because you can now look back, see what you learned from it all and gained in wisdom. To attract real love into your life, learn to let go of the past, embrace the change. Whether you’ve decided to break up with someone or someone has broken up with you, make up your mind to accept what happened. Forgive yourself and love the person you’ve become because of the experience.

3 Spiritual Steps to Weight-Loss

The way to losing weight is not about exercise and diet, it’s about changing your mind in the present moment and making the choice your body is dictating to you. The connection of mind, body and spirit is the first step towards weight loss, and even other addictions.

weightgainSome people believe they have to run miles every day to maintain ultimate health, or must lift weights daily or do push-ups. All these exercises have to be done in a certain amount of time, pedometers and stopwatches are turned on, as they have to pound the pavement to gain euphoria and “results”. These who follow the “rules” of exercise get results because of their dedication, but others who begin most exercise programs   develop injuries or blisters and other maladies that turn them off from exercise all together.

To a person who is overweight or never likes exercise, to get out there and follow a program is torturous. It’s not fun, it’s a chore. But it doesn’t have to be that way, all you need is to plug in to the spiritual outlet, through meditative exercise. It can begin with slow strolls, and yoga. And yes, overweight people can do yoga. Hatha yoga which concentrates on breathing and meditation is the best yoga practice to start when you want to get started.

There are dozens of enlightened teachers and self help gurus who can help in awakening that “connection” in helping you learn HOW to change your mind to gain overall great health and wellbeing. These teachers and philosophers from Ram Dass to Eckhart Tolle, have been phenomenal in the spiritual awakening of millions of people, but none have really expanded on the problem of obesity and how to get out of a chained existence, but with persistence, one can use the principals that spiritual teacher’s line out for us and become free of the obesity cycle.

Preconceived notions of diet and exercise have to be changed.  A change of mind of how we see food and exercise has to happen. The first change of thought has to be that we will not lose weight overnight, there is no magic cure, it may have taken you 10 years to gain 10 pounds, and it could take you one year to lose it. Losing weight is not a race, but a slow change of mind and lifestyle.   We must get ourselves out of the brainwashing and fear to lose weight.Placeholder Image

There are many reasons why a person may not be able to stick to an exercise or diet program. There are mainly two reasons. Brainwashing and fear.  The brainwashing is happening constantly. Food is on every channel in almost 80 percent of commercials. Alcoholic beverages and the images of “parties” that go with it are no help in our society of obese individuals.  When we are driving into town, billboards of McDonalds are all over the place. This generation grew up with Twix (sugar) and MickeyD fat.  So an overweight person knows they’ve been brainwashed and just don’t know how to get out of it.

Fear is why so many people cannot stick to their diets. Fear of changing a lifestyle habit is what subconsciously chains so many to stay trapped in a fat body.  The fear of failure is one of the biggest factors in taking on a diet. So many have tried and failed, so many have lost and gained the weight back and we hear about it all the time, every day. No one likes feeling like a failure every other month, so instead they keep sitting on the couch and eating bags of chips.

  1. Prayer and meditationCloseup portrait of a young woman praying

The secret to weight loss is rarely explained, but it’s very simple. It’s called meditation. Yes that’s right. You read right, meditation. Now how do you do that?  Meditation is an act of aligning yourself to God, to the spirit, to that powerful source within you that makes you alive. That is meditation. Prayer is talking to God, and meditation is listening to God.  It’s not hard and a person can do it in many ways. You can meditate while you crochet, or while painting your house. Because in those “acts” you are in the present moment, your mind may wonder, but when you do it long enough your mind becomes blank, and that is when you are connecting to the stillness.  In the Bible it says” Be still and know I am God (Psalm 46:10). Being in stillness is meditation. This helps develop mindfulness.

When it comes to prayer you only have to say two things: “Please” when you wake up, and “thank you” when you go to bed. The universe/God already knows what you want so take the time to “listen” by meditating rather than praying meaningless words and chants.

  1. Mindfulnessmeditation

When you get in tuned with your divine self through meditation it becomes easier and easier to make the right choices when it comes to food. Instead of eating mindlessly, you start to see that hamburger and fries differently. You are paying attention to what you are eating. You may choose then to order and hamburger and salad instead of fries. Meditation puts you in the present moment, so you can be “mindful” of your choices and choose wisely.

  1. Gratitude

I had a friend once who lost 40 pounds by praying over her food and giving thanks for everything she put in her mouth. She would then eat slowly tasting every bite. She came to realize when eating slow, that the junk food she liked so much didn’t taste as good as she thought, so she’d try other foods and be grateful she could get it. Gratitude is key to obtaining anything you want in this world and the next. A yoga teacher I had once would drive it home after every session, she would say, “now thank your mind and your body for being able to do this practice.”Happy in the grass

If you can’t walk a mile–walk a block and thank your body that could do that, some people are not able to walk at all! If all you do is one “touch your toes” and one “push up” thank your body for that!  If you eat chocolate cake give thanks for that and don’t beat yourself up for eating it. Keep on a gratitude track with your eating and exercise regimen. If nothing else works this does.

If you are plagued by compulsive patterns of unwise eating, then this book is for you. In A Course in Weight Loss, best-selling author Marianne Williamson addresses the causal roocourset of your weight-loss issues: a place within you where you have subconsciously forgotten your divine perfection. This forgetfulness has confused not only your mind but also your body, making you reach for that which cannot sustain you . . . and reject that which does. As your mind reclaims its spiritual intelligence, your body reclaims its natural intelligence as well. The 21 lessons in this book take you on a deep, sacred journey. One step at a time, you learn to shift your relationship with yourself—and your body—from one of fear to one of love. And you will begin to integrate the various parts of yourself—mind, body, and spirit—to become, once again, and in all ways, the beautiful and peaceful person you were created to be.
