Happiness

Happiness has been touted as something outside of one’s self . It tries to get us to believe that we are these helpless victims and that if we’re lucky we will find happiness. What a bunch of crap!

I recently had a client, who really believed that he needed this one person to complete him and find happiness. If this client had been a woman, people would describe this as the prince charming trap. A lot of religions promote this mentality as well. This is why so many people are unhappy.

Part of learning about happiness is about learning about yourself! Who you are? Who you are not? Who do you want to be? Learning that being selfish can in fact be a very good thing, it helps you set up boundaries! It helps you to say no to things that you don’t want to do. It help you to grow and discover new things. It helps you to take back your personal power!

I always get a kick out of people who freak out over Tarot decks. The two cards they usually go nuts over are the Devil ¬†and the Death card. The Devil is the best one to get, it usually reminds you that you need to stop giving away your personal power and stop playing the starring role as the victim! It’s about set boundaries, be it with family, friends or co-workers. It actually gets you to finally participate in your own life. It helps you to move out of being stuck and unhappy. It allows you to let go of friends that aren’t where you’re at right now. This is in no way a rejection or a judgement on them. If your paths are meant to cross in the future they will.

Now to the Death card, people always assume this card means that someone is going to die! Well yes and no! It is the ending of how they’re life has been up to this point. It is the new beginning for how they want to move they’re life forward. ¬†Examples: Single person is getting married. It is the death of they’re single life and the beginning of they’re married life. The Death card is a blessing since it means that there is a new beginning coming.

Happiness is within all of us, it was never outside of us. I’m not going to say this is a mind-set. It is actually about self discovery and uncovering or pulling back the layers on yourself and finding those great things about yourself that you love and like. This is not about someone’s opinion of your or they’re judgement of you. They don’t get to have a say in this! Why? Because this is not they’re life! If your constantly surrounded by people who tear you apart or toxic people. You might need to start cleaning house. Caller Id is our best friend and so is voice mail, start screening those calls. These are the best ways to get rid of toxic people if your lousy at boundaries.

You will start to notice the more these people aren’t in your life, the better you start to feel. You will finally find out what it feels like to be calm. Most people find out that they’re less depressed. Once you find that calmness and inner peace you will never let someone take that from you again. Surprise that is what happiness is! Being at peace with yourself whether you have someone in your life or not. It about not having Drama in your face 24 x 7.

Unfortunately, they didn’t do a movie about this! Why? It wouldn’t sell! So start taking life one day at a time and start seeing how you start to feel. Oh and be sure to hit the off button on the cell phone it allows for sometime to yourself that you’re not being tracked down by the electronic age.

Demons

I’m going to touch on this topic, because my guides are prodding me to!

Demons can mean many things to many people, for some it can mean running away from themselves and their past mistakes. Others, it can mean an addiction issue. While for others it can be a mental illness or for some on a power trip it can mean trying to control a supernatural force by calling it up.

I’m going to address each of these in turn. When we run from ourselves, we are usually really running away from judgement. There is no such thing as a perfect person, there never will be. We make mistakes and that’s how we learn. FYI: There is no pass fail on the other side. You don’t get graded on how well or how miserably you performed here. The only requirement is that you actually participate in your life.

Those that are trying to chase things away with addictions, might be better served with a counselor or therapist that can help you get to the root cause. Some people are sensitive to the paranormal so figure if they can get drunk enough it will just go away. Not so, FYI: those things can out wait you. If your sensitive to the paranormal, take a class in psychic development. It doesn’t mean you have to become a professional psychic and do woo, woo stuff. It will give you some clarity that you are not alone.

For some it is believed that mental illness is a form of a demon. Believe it or not they aren’t that far off. In some instances people have been known to feel another presence when working with the mentally ill. This is not to say that all people with mental disabilities have demons around them.

Ego trip people who think it would be cool to call up demons. Guess what! Not so cool, these things are real and they can prey on you psychologically or physically. When people say that a depressed person has demons around them. That is true, they feed off of fear and insecurity. People that hear voices, might be schizophrenic or hearing demons. Voices from your spirit guides and angels. Will never tell you to hurt yourself or do destructive behavior. When I say demons prey on you physically. Here is what I mean, you can become possessed in rare cases or they can physically attack you. This is also rare, unlike what Hollywood would like you to believe. After all their world is all about ticket sales.

Speaking in tongues without protection not a good idea. It’s like putting out a shingle that reads body for rent. You will attract lower vibrational beings. Ghosts, spirits and possibly demons. If you are using protection before speaking in tongues your probably going to be okay. Always use protection when doing this. Same goes for automatic writing use protection. I know this is starting to sound like safe sex ed. class.

In truth, when I started this article; I didn’t intend for it to become this long.
