Productive Use Of Time & Energy

I just read an article concerning the lead singer of the successful band called Imagine Dragons, lamenting how bands often criticize one another. He couldn’t comprehend why people do such things. Although I am not really a big fan of this group, I am aware that cristicisms and crude sarcasms are so prevalent these days and it’s not just in the entertainment industry but also in the political arena. The lead singer, Dan Reynolds said “We have a finite amount of time while we are here to create change and to do great things, to do big things. It’s just to me, counterproductive to all of us as artistes to engage in menial, self-indulgent conversation..”.

Dan added that he attended a seminar whereby Oprah Winfrey described how she got to where she is today. Apparently Oprah expressed that it was all about our intention i.e. “Where do we spend our time?” , “How do we spend our words?” and “What are we going to do with our finite time on Earth?” . In my opinion many people don’t use their time and energy productively. Interestingly, this ties in with the messages channeled from the Other Side by Mr. Lee Carroll which described the general population as little kids in a playground making a lot of noises. Sometime ago, an Archangel described to me the Soul Age (not human age) of most humans here and it seems that the majority of people are just Young Souls, with lower levels of wisdom. Hence many humans are immature and their behavior tends to be self-serving. Lee Carroll’s channeled messages suggested that the more mature souls ought not force these inexperienced Young Souls to change as compulsion often does not lead to desired results. Instead, such people are asked to lead by example – by being tolerant, compassionate and peaceful. As one maintains calmness in the midst of chaos, it is going to cause others to wonder how such a person could achieve that. At some point in time, these younger souls may want to seek advice or help in developing these traits in themselves.

However, one needs to remember that a change in Consciousness takes time. For the moment, I believe it is better for us to do a Life Review of ourselves by asking ourselves questions like the following:

“AM I living to my fullest potential?” and if not, “How can I be the best version of myself?” Such contemplation may lead us to action that utilizes our personal time and energy more productively.

The Radiance Of Freddie Mercury!

“Never try to fit in…Try to stand out..Be true to yourself …Find your own uniqueness.”

The aforementioned advice was from the spirit of Freddie Mercury (of the legendary band Queen) as recently received by psychic medium Emamuelle McIntosh for musicians , singers & performers.

The advice makes a lot sense and I believe it is also applicable to anyone who seeks success in living out their dreams, whatever these may be.

The spirit of the late singer went on to explain that to succeed, one needs to believe in oneself. He asked rhetorically, “How can we expect other people to see the potential in us, if we don’t see it in ourselves?”

Freddie also explained that the AIDS he had was part of his soul purpose to plant a seed of compassion in the masses. Back then even certain doctors were afraid to be close to such patients and dared not touch them. In addition, the general public were so afraid of contracting AIDS that they literally shunned such people. However things have changed for the better since then as there is much more support now.

Freddie’s revelation doesn’t surprise me as we do come to Earth to live out our soul purpose. Deep within, we know what our mission is. Life is always purposeful and meaningful.. especially if we become the catalyst for growth of others.

Messages From Beyond – Michael Jackson

There are many gifted people who are able to talk to ‘the departed’ and the more established mediums are people like John Edwards, James Van Praagh, Lisa Williams and Teresa Caputo, who have all done live readings on TV shows and have written best selling books. However , not too long ago, a lesser known medium by the name of Emanuelle McIntosh has impressed me with her mediumship ‘talent’ . One of her more interesting sessions (recorded on YouTube) is her spirit communication with the legendary Michael Jackson. I was so touched by that reading and the information revealed by the late singer about his personal life. Interestingly, while watching the video, I received a divine nudge to write about that session. Hence, the reason for this blogpost.

As most people would already know, Michael was a talented but extremely private person. In the aforesaid spirit communication, Michael revealed that he had no one to really open up to during his incarnation and was also suspicious of the motives of those who appeared to be supportive of him. He explained that his strict and harsh upbringing by his father Joseph, had a huge negative impact on his character. He lamented that he didn’t have the time to grow up naturally like other children. He was forced to train hard and was put into the limelight at an early age. Because of all the scolding and beating by his father when he didn’t lived up to his expectation, he was in constant fear and his self-worth was diminished. He also felt guilty when his brothers were punished by his father, when they didn’t perform as well as him during training. All the trauma led him to become a guarded and reclusive adult. When he was alone, he spent a lot of time day-dreaming and that ironically helped him receive divine inspiration for his songs easily. As such, he didn’t need to sit down and struggle to write the next song, like other artistes.

According to the spirit of Michael, his happiest moments came when he was playing with children, because he felt those children were just being themselves and had no filters like adults. He also clarified that he had never abused the kids. His biggest regret was that he never got a chance to find his true self, because he was forced to become an adult at an early age. Also, he was never taught to express his emotions and as such, had to keep his feelings all to himself. Despite the turmoil he went through, the millions of lives who were touched by his effort made his struggle worth it. His parting words were for parents to give ample room and time to their children to grow and discover themselves gradually. Even if the children made mistakes, he explained that every set back, should be viewed as a step up. This last statement reminds me of the advice by many holistic healers that it is imperative for everyone to nurture their inner child…to always live, play and grow at his/her own pace.

Music Heals

“Being human is hard and we need every tool and resource we can get to ease our fears and concerns; music is a very powerful medicine that can help us do that. So in the music that I make, I put into it the ingredients and the thoughts and wisdom and knowledge that I have acquired or heard in my life. I put it together in the song so that when I sing it, I can always drink that medicine of love, forgiveness, hope, patience and peace….

Because everybody needs a hug and I want my music to be a hug. The world is so competitive and the news can show us so many bad things. I want to use media as a positive tool.”

– singer/songwriter Jason Mraz

Death Separates Us Not

“Over Mountains,

Over Trees,

Over Oceans,

Over Seas,

I’ll be there.

In a whisper on the wind,

On the smile of a new friend,

Just think of me,

And I’ll be there.

Don’t be afraid, oh my love..

I’ll be watching you from above,

And I’d give all the world tonight,

To be with you.

‘Cause I’m on your side,

And I still care,

I may have died,

But I’ve gone nowhere.

Just think of me,

And I’ll be there.”

———

The above are part of the lyrics of a hauntingly beautiful hit song called “I’ll be there” by the group, The Escape Club. Its meaningful lyrics accurately depict how souls of deceased still care for the living. I say this with conviction because quite recently Archangel Raphael ( often known as the Healing Angel ) , visited and informed me that a male spirit requires assistance in crossing over to the Other Side. This spirit was the late husband of a friend of mine, whom I have not been in touch for some time.

To obtain more information about this predicament, I contacted a very intuitive lady who was closer to the wife of that spirit. This gifted lady confirmed that our common friend’s husband did pass away not too long ago. When I explained that the Archangel wanted me to assist the spirit, my intuitive friend said she sensed the spirit was reluctant to leave the human realm because the widow needed help. The wife misses the husband and was also worrying over certain issues. Apparently the spirit wanted to pass certain messages to his wife to help her before he leaves for the Spirit world. With this revelation, I subsequently explained to the said lady and she replied that it made sense. This is because she felt a ‘presence’ in her house was trying to get her attention lately but didn’t know its identity!

So the aforesaid lyrics “Just think of me, and I’ll be there” rings true in this particular case. And to those whom have lost loved ones and are missing them dearly, you may rest in comfort knowing that those souls STILL care for us and are just a thought away.

From A Distance

“From a distance, we all have enough,
And no one is in need.
And there are no guns, no bombs and no disease,
No hungry mouths to feed.
From a distance, we are instruments
Marching in a common band.
Playing songs of hope, playing songs of peace.
They are songs of every man.

From a distance, you look like my friend,
Even though we are at war.
From a distance, I just can’t comprehend,
What all this fighting is for.
From a distance, there is harmony,
And it echoes through the land.
And it’s the hope of hopes, it’s the love of loves.
It’s the heart of every man.”

– An extract of the lyrics from the song “From A Distance” as sung by Bette Midler.

[Songs which are meaningful can hold much wisdom and can stand the test of time. One of such songs, I opine is the aforementioned , which was very written. Words and rhythm of the song resonates with my soul.]

Persevere!

Now everyday ain’t gonna be no picnic
Life ain’t a walk in the park
All you can do is make the best of it now
Can’t be afraid of the dark

Just know that you’re not in this thing alone
There’s always a place… you can call home

Anything that’s worth having
Is sure enough, worth fighting for
Quitting’s out of the question
When it gets tough
Gotta fight some more

(The above is an edited version of the lyrics of Cheryl Cole’s morale boosting song, ‘Fight For This Love’.)
