Why are Spirits closer now?

To help us learn from their past mistakes so we don't repeat them. To help us remember there is a bigger picture than the world and time we live in. To remind us we're not alone. To give us courage to speak up and be our authentic selves. To remind us life is short. To remind us one person can change the world. To remind us that miracles happen. To remind us we are loved.

When we feel loved, or part of a group, our confidence builds. When we feel others are paying attention to us, we feel more important, more courageous, more balanced, more peaceful and solid. These feelings help us move forward and bring us hope and motivation.

Everything happening in our world today is a repeat of humanity's past flaws and history. Governments taking more control of our individual lives for the "better good". Elite groups furthering their agenda and forcing their principles, philosophies on others. Widespread chaos and crime confusing our senses. Miracles and heroes surfacing, satisfying our thirst for what is good and right.

The only difference between what is happening now and what happened in the past is our knowledge and awareness of those things. The Information Age brings events, philosophies, knowledge, awareness to us quicker and with more detail - the good and the bad. The Information Age (Social Media, Press, Radio and TV programs) also brings natural and supernatural events to the surface that were hidden in the past. From global weather patterns, international news, global movements to ghost stories, spiritual guidance, and stories of individual empowerment - the Information Age floods our senses with data.

Sometimes the Information Age creates the illusion that uncommon, extraordinary events are common or mainstream. This is a new phenomenon for humanity. And it happens on a global scale, which can confuse us.

This new age of information flow beckons us to choose what we pay attention to. We cannot pay attention to everything happening while focusing on our individual lives. It's important to discern what is true and what is not; what resonates with us and what does not. It's also important to respect others' differences: remember that other people are following their individual guidance system (intuition, soul voice, destiny) and belief systems.

Remember and respect your beliefs. Reconnect with your internal guidance system (intuition, soul voice and destiny). These steps will make it easier for you to extract truths from fiction, respect those who disagree with you, and keep you Walking Your Sacred Path.

Others have been here before you. Their knowledge, grace, love, past history and attention surround us more today to help us move through the Information Age with more clarity and courage.

What is happening now has happened before. We can change the outcome. Each of us can make a positive difference in the world. Seeing the Big Picture, finding the courage to act on your individual principles, respecting others' differences instead of judging or changing them - these are the lessons from our past that will help us create a better future. These are some messages The Spirit Realm sends to us now.

Practicing your Free Will and following your beliefs and intuition are important. Not everyone will agree with you. And that is good. Personally, I don't expect everyone to agree with my posts, opinions or beliefs. If everyone held the same beliefs or had the same talents, our Earth life would become a very dull place. Variety is the spice of life.

Sedona Tragedies & Social Media

Last weekend, our small Sedona community (approx population 10,000) was struck by two fatal car crashes. One crash occurred on our main street in West Sedona when a local man, wanting to end his life, deliberately hit another car head-on, killing two passengers (tourists) in that car and fatally shooting himself after the crash. The other tragedy involved a local woman who stopped to assist another car on busy interstate I-17. She walked across lanes of the interstate highway to reach passengers in a rollover accident. While crossing lanes of busy highway, she was struck by an oncoming vehicle and died instantly.

We never know when tragedy strikes. Learning how to cope with death, loss, tragedy, disappointments is important. Fact of life, unfortunately.

Many people in Sedona, not connected to the victims, survivors or their families, are finding it difficult to deal with these tragic events. Tragedy rarely hits our town. Most Sedonans feel protected from the rest of the world's tragic events. Many locals call it "The Sedona Bubble." Our friendly, casual, Mayberry RFD-type bubble feels safe, secure, quiet by most society standards. Although we have different belief systems and opinions.

When part of that bubble breaks, it frightens people who haven't experienced major tragedies in their life. That's completely understandable. Their fear causes them to act out, be angry, blame others, cast judgements, question life, question their beliefs. It's caused a major fracture in our community, especially on Sedona's local community Facebook page. Judgments and anger run rampant on that page. Whether it's a discussion about the tragedies or other issues our town faces. Not everyone knows how to deal with tragedy. Not everyone knows how to deal with and accept opposing views. Part of the human condition.

Social Media can help or harm. Words can be taken out of context. When you type a comment, you never know the emotional state of a person reading it. Personal, physical communication prevents most misunderstandings. Seeing someone's face or body language helps you decide how to speak with them.

There is a lot of anger in the world today. Many people feel unsettled, uncertainty. Most of us want to cut through the uncertainty, negativity and bring more balance, love or understanding to ourselves or others. Sometimes we can do that effectively and quickly on Social Media. Sometimes we cannot. It all depends on the emotional or mental state of the person you're talking with.

When tragedy strikes and you're not personally connected with the victims, say a prayer for them and their loved ones who still walk this Earth. Feel whatever you feel. All emotions and responses are valid, as long as you aren't breaking the law! Once you've processed the tragedy from your own perspective, feel thankful & blessed for your life. Remember life is short and unpredictable. Do the best you can with the gifts & talents you have. Your life is precious. Your time here is limited. Make every day count. That's the real lesson with tragedies. Especially when you're not directly affected, connected to it. Survivor's Guilt is a difficult road to walk. I've walked it as a survivor of double-homicide. It's not necessary to walk that hellish road if you're not directly affected. Choose to stay positive. Appreciate the good things in your life. Concentrate on you. If Social Media brings you down, turn it off or change the channel.
