Purpose Of Suffering # Lady Gaga

“If … you’re suffering in any type of way, just know that suffering within itself is a sign of your humanity and you are NOT broken. You are connected to the whole world and we are one giant body… And the whole you is having a whole human experience and there might be parts of your life that feel completely shallow or robotic or ancillary and unimportant, and that’s OK, but suffering is a sign that you’re real and it’s a way to ground yourself.”

– a recent quote from Lady Gaga, singer/entertainer.

Once again, a pop star’s quote (Lady Gaga) has caught my attention not because of its raunchiness or vulgarity but for its wisdom. Often we don’t get nuggets of wisdom from entertainers. Lady Gaga’s aforementioned words are similar explanations I give to my clients of my healing profession. Apart from channeling energy to balance my clients’ body through reiki (i.e. divine life force), I also provide counselling by sharing all the things I have learned from my own challenges and the spiritual messages I had gathered from other sources, over the past decades.

Often I explain to my clients that life on Earth is usually not like a walk in the park, although it can be. Challenges in all forms can take place and suffering is part of the human experience. As a human, we get to feel a vast array of emotions and that itself is enriching, as we learn what it is like to be human. The ups and downs of life help create so many lessons that a fairytale life (where everything is perfect) cannot. Many parties have surmised before that we live in a perfectly imperfect world and I concur. And out of that comes growth from overcoming the human suffering. Hence, I believe we ought to treasure life , as Life Is Facilitating Experience… the human experience.

A United Effort! ✨🌎✨

The above song, entitled ‘We Are The World’ was originally released in 1985, as an American benefit single for African famine relief. Amazingly, 35 years later, the lyrics (partially reproduced below) still seem so relevant in Year 2020! Over the years, there have been other singers who did their own rendition but in my opinion, this version certainly ‘packs a punch’. The singers’ voices are so powerful and I am truly impressed.

I believe when meaningful lyrics are sung with passion, it can certainly move people’s 💓 Heart 💓! And so, may this version open our hearts and unite us as One ☝🏼, to overcome the many challenges facing us now.

“There comes a time,
When we heed a certain call,
When the world must come together as One.
There are people dying,
Oh, and it’s time to lend a hand to life-
The greatest gift of all.

We can’t go on
Pretending day-by-day
That someone, somewhere soon will make a change.
We’re all a part of God’s great big family,
And the truth, you know, love is all we need.

We are the world.
We are the children.
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let’s start giving.
There’s a choice we’re making,
We’re saving our own lives.
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me”

Looking Past World Drama

During these times of quarantine or lockdown, I believe many people have received a lot of ‘forwarded’ videos on their electronic devices, especially their hand phones. Sometimes, the videos are ludicrous or seem to be tainted with fake news. On other occasions, the videos are uplifting , inspiring or even enlightening. An example of the latter is the one I have enclosed above. It’s supposedly about a parent telling his children a bedtime story… but then as the messages clearly refer to our real life situations, perhaps it’s an an eye-opener for the masses, instead of just a fairytale.

I believe the slowing down of our pace of life is purposeful, though not always enjoyable. Over the past 20+ years, I have learned so much from the messages relayed by mediums (people who can communicate with the spirit realm), survivors of Near-Death Experience, people who underwent hypnosis , trance channelers, etc.. All seem to point to the notion that nothing is really accidental. In other words, everything happens for a reason. So, instead of lamenting about dire times, perhaps it’s better for us to expand our perspective, and explore other possibilities of why things are unfolding as they are.

Interestingly, even the mega successful entertainer, Madonna gave her own opinion of the predicament we are in. Apparently the following were her views…

“That’s the thing about Covid-19…. It doesn’t care about how rich you are, how famous you are, how funny you are, how smart you are, where you live, how old you are, what amazing stories you can tell. It’s the great equalizer and what’s terrible about it is what’s great about it…. What’s terrible about it is that it’s made us all equal in many ways — and what’s wonderful about it is that it’s made us all equal in many ways.”

(Note : The above video and Madonna’s opinion have this uncanny similarity to the messages I received from Archangel Michael recently, which I wrote on my previous blogpost. Synchronicity at play? 🤔)

I Believe We Will Win!

Although, I am not exactly a hip-hop fan, I still would like to emphasise on the lyrics of the latest inspirational song, by the successful Cuban hip-hop singer, Pitbull. (See YouTube music video above). It’s not too preachy, but short and to the point. Exactly, what we need to change our belief and attitude towards the challenges the whole world is facing now. The pertinent lyrics are…

“You know what spreads faster than any virus is Fear.” And when it comes to fear, you can either forget everything and run, or “you can FACE EVERYTHING and RISE!”

“I believe that we WILL WIN!”

During these times of great challenges, I support all forms of positive advocation. Over the past few decades, I have learned through my personal experiences and teachings of spiritual people as well as highly successful people, that a positive belief will lead to a reverse in passive attitude, which then translates into affirmative action. Fear based action usually have limitations/shortcomings, whereas action based upon a winning attitude usually dissolves challenges (real or perceived) faster and more efficiently. In fact, such action can even inspire others to do the same.

In this new Astrological Age of Aquarius, individuals are prompted to look for the POWER … from within. Ultimately, we are what we believe ourselves to be.

Smile Always!

“Let your smile change the world. Don’t let the world change your smile.”

– Will Smith, actor, rapper and entertainer.

Mantra – Consciousness Of The Supreme One

The purpose of this blogpost is simply to answer a request from Archangel Uriel who made its presence known to me, today. It was suggested I write specifically about the aforementioned mantra. I don’t claim to know the reason behind this but in the past , there were a few times my writing was prompted by these multidimensional divine beings. A gifted friend of mine, whose 3rd eye chakra is active, has described her vision of this angelic being as a big yellow orb of light. As for me, this angelic being’s energy is so strong that it previously triggered my dormant alarm clock to ring its alarm bell, just to get my attention to help someone.

There are many mantras which spiritual people recite around the world but Archangel Uriel is specifically referring to the aforementioned Gayatri Mantra. So, I inserted the above YouTube video which displays the meaning of the mantra. The disclaimer I would like to put forth is that I am not an expert in mantras. However, I have been told to ask a group of people who are into health and healing modalities, to recite this mantra in our healing circle sometime ago. The outcome of that recital was good, to say the least. Hence, I am not resistant to writing this blog post. Considering the fact that this video has been viewed 91 million times, as of this writing, I suppose many people in the world resonate with it. Here’s hoping the reader of this blog benefits from viewing/reciting it. 🕉

Be Brave!

Songs can really inspire if the lyrics are positive/meaningful and are coupled with a great tune. The aforementioned music video features one of such songs. The very famous singer Taylor Swift even admitted she loved it, when the song was originally released a few years ago. The following is an excerpt of the lyrics…

“You can be amazing

You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug

You can be the outcast

Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love

Or you can start speaking up

Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do

And they settle ‘neath your skin

Kept on the inside and no sunlight

Sometimes a shadow wins

But I wonder what would happen if you

Say what you wanna say

And let the words fall out

Honestly I wanna see you be brave

Everybody’s been there, everybody’s been stared down

By the enemy

Fallen for the fear and done some disappearing

Bow down to the mighty

Don’t run, stop holding your tongue

Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live

Maybe one of these days you can let the light in

Show me how big your brave is

Say what you wanna say

And let the words fall out

Honestly I wanna see you be brave

Innocence, your history of silence

Won’t do you any good

Did you think it would?

Let your words be anything but empty

Why don’t you tell them the truth?

Say what you wanna say

And let the words fall out

Honestly I wanna see you be brave”

…And with courage, ALL things become possible in Life.

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.
