Once again welcome to the latest edition of our newsletter!
I wish to extend a warm welcome to all new members on behalf of our site administrators and myself. Please take time to browse the forum and groups, blog as you wish, but above all enjoy your time on the site.
This week United In Spirit upgraded the widgets that we use. Widget box who we used previously tended to be some what unreliable in regards to maintaining active content feeds from our site. Widgets are a great promotional tool which permit many people to view the content of various sections of a site. United In Spirit has several widgets which run feeds from not only the discussion/ forum , but from the various groups also. Some of the widgets are on the main page, however their most important role is on several other networks and sites. Therefore, it is imperative that our widgets are reliable. When people subscribe to our widgets and place them on their own sites, they expect reliability and regular content additions. So the search was on to locate a widget provider where I could design widgets of the same or better quality then we already had and of course improve the reliability factor.
Spring Widget, the the home of our new widgets, provides a much more sleek design and greater reliability and this equals increased exposure for United In Spirit.
Another developmental addition to United In Spirit Ning and our home site incorporates our own library. The library provides Ebooks, PDF's and various articles which are available for download for all members. The link to access this facility is on the main page for both sites.
The home site now has a great introductory page incorporating all the necessary links for the site. With many thanks to Shade Law for its creation! Now people can read this and click on a link and go directly to the relevant section!
Our site guidelines were also reviewed and some additions made, so when you are next on site, please take a moment to familiarise yourself with these.
The Spiritual Warrior~
Life offers us the opportunity to become a spiritual warrior. A warrior is one who bravely goes into those dark areas within themselves to ferret out the truth of their being. It takes great courage, stamina and endurance...
The path is narrow, the terrain rough and rocky. You will walk alone through dark caves, up steep climbs and through the dense thick forest. You will meet your dark side. The faces of fear, deceit and sadness all await your arrival. No one can take this journey but you...
There comes a time in each of our lives, when we are given the choice to follow this path. Should we decide to embark on this journey, we can never turn back. Our lives are changed forever on this journey. There are many different places we can choose to slip into and hide, but the path goes on. ..
The spiritual warrior stays the course, wounded at times, exhausted and out of energy. Many times, the warrior will struggle back to their feet to take only a few steps before falling again. Rested, they forge on...continuing the treacherous path. The journey continues. The spiritual warrior stays the course. Weakened, but never broken. One day, the battle, loneliness and desperate fights are over. The sun breaks through the clouds...
The birds begin to sing their sweet melodies. There is a change in the energy. A deep change within the self. The warrior has fought the courageous fight. The battle of the dark night of the soul is won. New energy fills the warrior. A new path is laid before them. A gentler path, filled with inner knowing of one who has personal empowerment. ..
With their personal battle won, they are filled with joy. A new awareness that they are one with the spirit beams as they go forth to show others the way...
They are not permitted to walk the path for others. They can only love, guide and be a living example of the truth of the being...
Which Path is Right?
The crossroads of transformation is where we stand at every moment of our life. The future is never determined in advance-it unfolds with each decision and choice that we make. The energy we resonate at and connect with determines the opportunities we will see as possibilities for choices. What feels right for us at one point may, upon review, seem like the worst possible path we could have taken. After what can seem like so many dead ends, how do we know which path is right?
What is right and best for us at one moment is not always the same over time. For example, the choices you made when you were 18 are not the same ones you would make at 40. But that is only because you have lived with the results of your past choices and know the outcome of certain decisions. When those outcomes do not bring us what we desire we judge them as wrong and that creates even more problems for us because no decision is ever wrong-we can only choose what we think is possible for us at that moment in time. And that always changes.
There is no 'right' path on our spiritual journey and our path will not be straight, it will twist and turn, wind through different experiences with the goal of ensuring that we learn the lessons of our soul contract. Instead of judging our experiences, we gain insight, move towards enlightenment and increase our range of options by reviewing what we learned, how and why we chose that particular option and what our expectations were at that time. Then we have information we can use for the next decision. Another crossroads of transformation will always be available and we can choose differently the next time.
It can feel like we make decisions that take us backwards, re-visiting experiences and going over old ground that we thought we had already covered. Perhaps we did but we may need to learn another aspect of that lesson. We can't be in a hurry with this process, there is no timeline or deadline, there is no end of the journey. As we approach each crossroads of transformation we can take our time, review our options, expand our vision of our power and possibilities and then choose something that will serve our highest good at that moment. When we are ready for a different turn on our path, to move in another direction, we will have an opportunity to choose again.
Balancing, Grounding and Integrating
1. Using your breath to meditate!
Meditating and breathing are spiritual disciplines that help you to balance your energy fields and to ground. Learn how to meditate using your breath as a focus. Sit on a chair, feet to ground, spine erect, hands clasped and eyes closed. Take five deep breaths and begin to focus on the rhythm of your breathing. Say "In" as you inhale and "Out" as you exhale. If you become distracted, don’t beat yourself up. Just return to your focus as soon as possible. THERE IS NO RIGHT OR WRONG WAY TO MEDITATE. Meditation will eventually calm your mental body if you do not give up on it first.
2. Drink LOTS of Water
One of the biggest energetic weaknesses that most people have is that they are dehydrated. We drink so much soda and alcohol and even juices when what our bodies want and need is pure water. Our bodies are comprised of around 70% water and water supplies the juice to keep everything flowing. As you grow spiritually and evolve, you begin to release toxins and your body becomes and feels more electrical in nature. It is very important to drink lots of water to make sure this heightened amount of energy can flow easily throughout your body.
3. My Two Favorite Energy Healing Techniques for Grounding
My favorite way to ground is to just find a peaceful place outdoors and lay down on the grass and look at the clouds roll by. A simple, fun and very grounding practice. Kids do it all of the time.
Another very powerful way to ground is to visualize colored cords of light connecting you into earth. Then visualize energy pouring from earth up the cords destroying them. Then bring in new colored cords... Repeat this process several times until you feel grounded and stable and connected to earth.
4. Energy Healing Technique to Balance Your Mind
The quality of our lives depends to a large extent upon the beliefs that we hold in our minds. Our conscious thoughts really represent the tip of the iceberg; we have millions of unconscious and subconscious thoughts every day. Anyone who has tried to meditate for over five minutes quickly realizes how busy our minds are and how hard it is to still them. We talk to ourselves all the time and what we say has a huge impact on how we experience life. The great masters stress the importance of detachment and becoming serene and the key to this is to clear your negative self talk and to still your “monkey mind.” A great exercise is to buy a small notebook you can stash in a pants pocket or pocket book and write down everything you say out loud about yourself. If you do this conscientiously for even a week, you will become aware of what your negative mental patterns are. The first step to healing your mind is to understand your thought patterns and belief systems. Some of my most powerful energy healing sessions are dissolving dysfunctional belief sessions, where I help clients to clear hundreds of thousands of negative beliefs at one time in areas such as self love, deserving, money/finances, personal power, etc.
5. What are the best ways to integrate energy healing?
Often the best thing you can do is to sleep. This allows the body to integrate the experience as quickly as possible. Having a strong intent to accept the healing and to let the past go also helps. After an energy healing session, you will be detoxifying your body. It is very important that you drink lots of water for the next few days to help your body to flush out the toxins that are released after one of our sessions. Many people find that jello helps people to assimilate because of its high calcium content. You can mix two tablespoons of jello with a cup of hot water and drink it before the jello congeals. Salt water baths are also very helpful.
6. Energy Healing Technique for Grounding
One of the quickest and easiest ways to ground your energy is to close your eyes and take ten deep breaths. Visualize your favorite tree. Pretend that you are a tree and visualize your arms being branches. Anchor your feet firmly into the ground and visualize thousands of roots extending deeply into the earth. This is a great exercise to do whenever your energy feels really scattered or you feel spacey.
7. Energy Healing Technique to Balance Your Emotions
Emotions naturally have a very short lifespan. They are meant to flow through us not to be held within us. What happens though is that often we feel an emotion and we get caught up in it and it stops the flow. Whenever you get angry or agitated or upset or anxious or stressed or tense, immediately stop what you are doing and try to figure out what emotions are you feeling. By breathing deeply into your heart while you experience the feeling, you can allow the emotion to flow through you and leave. If you hold on to anger or tension or anxiety, you are imbedding this pattern into your cellular memory and over time it will begin to manifest in the physical body as pain or disease. I have found that many negative emotions are stored in the DNA. I offer clients around sixty DNA reprogramming sessions – which is one of the quickest and easiest ways I know to assist people in clearing negative emotions.
8. Energy Healing Technique to Balance Your Physical Body
Human bodies are really energy fields. Three key elements are required to maintain a high energy level. They require lots of pure water each day to function optimally. Also vitamins are needed to provide the body with all of the nutrients they do not get from the typical American diet of fast food meals and processed foods. I strongly encourage people to use liquid vitamins because this is easier for the body to process – often the body cannot absorb all of the nutrients in a vitamin pill whereas it can if the vitamins are delivered in a liquid format. Our bodies really need to move a lot – walking is great and any form of movement from yoga to dancing to swimming is great for the body. Deep breathing is also very important in insuring that the body gets enough oxygen to function well. I have found that the physical healing sessions from Serenity Vibration Healing that I do for clients are very helpful in assisting the physical body to come back into a state of balance.
9. Balancing Your Body, Heart, Mind and Soul
Balancing your body, heart, mind and soul is key to becoming whole and realizing your full potential. I am an energy healer who has worked with hundreds of people from around the world helping them to release negativity so that they may embody their inner divinity. Many of my clients focus so intently on spiritual growth that they ignore the needs of their bodies; experience out of control emotions; and operate from the ego mind. We are here to ground the energy of Spirit into our body, emotions and mind as well as to evolve the soul. Each body is like the leg of a chair; it is great to grow one leg but if you don´t grow all of them roughly at the same time, your seat gets awfully wobbly and eventually collapses. If you want to focus on one thing, focus on love for love heals the body, soothes the emotions, slows down the mind and advances the soul. The path I prefer is to heal the body, then work with emotions, then the mind and then the soul and then back to the body to repeat the cycle all over again. This way I feel I grow in an ever-expanding spiral. This is really how the universe functions: Stars are like spirals of energy - like Van Gogh´s picture, Starry Night. One of the angelic healing sessions I offer to clients (angelic healing templates) works with all of these bodies and helps clear out negativity and re-balance and recalibrate them.
10. Energy Healing Technique to Balance Your Soul
I really do believe that I AM decrees are one of the most powerful ways to balance your spiritual bodies. Just spend five minutes each morning before work, five minutes after work and five minutes before you go to bed saying OUT LOUD, with FEELING: “I AM Love. I AM Whole. I AM THAT I AM,” etc. It makes a huge difference. Meditation is also helpful for many people but for many people, meditation may be walking in nature, swimming laps, immersing yourself in music… There are many ways to meditate but the key thing is to get into a state of consciousness where you are able to still your mind. It takes a while to do this so work up to it in small doses – even stilling your mind for two minutes is GREAT for someone who has never meditated before.

excerpted from Creating Money with the publisher's permission
Miracles come from love, are created by love, and are magnetized to you through love. Think of a miracle you created for someone else. Perhaps you gave someone something very valuable to him or her that you knew he or she needed. Remember the sense of love you felt for that other person. The miracle came from the love within you, and gave you love also. The other person had to be willing to receive your gift for there to be a completion of the energy. If he or she hadn't been able to receive, there would have been no miracle. You need to be open to receive before the universe can bring you miracles.
When you want to give or receive love and miracles, all you need do is intend to do so. Reach for the highest and biggest vision; create quality in your experiences. Each one of you is a bundle of loving energy, capable of creating anything you choose. Miracles come from your love. If you are willing to open your heart, to love yourself and others, life will always be a miracle. The degree to which you are open and loving is the degree to which miracles will come your way.
You may have seen the parents of a child with physical or mental problems produce miraculous results through their love for the child, overcoming handicaps that were supposedly not medically curable. Miracles happen when you are willing to receive and give love. A miracle is a demonstration from the universe and your soul of their love for you. If there is anything you want, use your mind to visualize it, and then open your heart.
When you spend and give with love, you create even more ways for money to come to you. A state of love is a state of receptivity to the abundance of the universe. The more love you send out to the world, the more abundance and miracles you will receive in return. Every time you pay a bill or receive money, see it as a gift of love. Make every exchange of money an opportunity to radiate love to those around you.
Sometimes your mind stands in the way of miracles. The mind is good for planning, setting goals, and visualizing. To speed up the process and create miracles after you have magnetized something, open your heart. Trust and believe in yourself, love others, and demonstrate that love with action every day.
Give people as much love as you can. Be gentle and kind, speak loving words, extend forgiveness to those who haven't honored you, and hold loving thoughts about others and honor them in all you do. Do not judge or criticize. Instead, at every moment, find a new opportunity to love. Remember, it is easy to be loving when people around you are loving; the challenge is to be loving when those around you are not. As you treat others with love and compassion, you draw to yourself opportunities, money, people, miracles, and even more love. Love puts you in a higher flow and draws good things to you. As you open your heart in new areas, you become magnetic to increased good and abundance.
Miracles are unexpected occurrences that bring you far more than you expect. They are synchronistic events that usually occur when you let go of attachment and trust your inner guidance. Often they come because of a call to the deepest part of your being for help. Crisis frequently creates miracles, for it calls the deepest part of your soul into consciousness. Your soul is always looking over you, sending you love and guidance. As you get quiet and go inward, you connect to the part of you that has the answers. When you go inward, reach your soul, and ask for help, answers come and miracles happen. You want to learn how to go to the depth of your being without crisis. Miracles are the result of reaching inward to your soul.
If you want something, ask your soul to provide you with a demonstration of its faith in and love for you. Then, open to receive and be willing to recognize your request when it comes. Every time you accept love from others, every time you open to receive love from the universe, you set in motion the creation of miracles in your life.
When you are not receiving money from your usual sources, ask for it from unusual ones. Let it come from other places in the world, from other people, from unexpected sources. When you look around you and do not see yourself receiving what you want, begin asking that all channels of money open to you. When you are determined to have something only through a certain source, you cut off all the other ways it can come to you.
Remember also that the circumstances of your life can change for the better overnight. It does not need to take time to change the circumstances surrounding your prosperity unless you believe it must take time. Perhaps you can remember a time when you were worried one day about money and something good happened the next day that took away your worries. If you are feeling depressed about money, remember that this is only a temporary situation and circumstances can change.
Think of all the times you can remember when you received money or something you wanted in a totally unexpected way that seemed like a miracle. The more you are willing to hold positive thoughts, to listen to and take action on your inner guidance, to trust and believe in yourself, and to commit to your higher purpose, the more miracles you will attract.
The great miracle is life itself. You are the miracle, and you can create anything you want, which is another great miracle. There are no barriers, no limits, to what you can have. The only limit is what you can picture for yourself, ask for, and believe you can have.

"Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.
What you see reflects your thinking. And your thinking but reflects your choice of what you want to see."

The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood,
and I--I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Hoping you have enjoyed this volume and found the articles of interest.
In Love and Light Always,
