I believe being raised a Catholic is neither right nor wrong. However, I now look at life through a different lens. I am spiritual with a soul that is not religious but eternal. We are spiritual beings who may be living by a certain faith we grew up in, yet if we look beyond our religious beliefs, we may come to realize we are so much more than our religion.
A young girl came to me about a relationship she had been in for six years. Her reason to stay with this person was out of fear of ending up alone. Her fear is if she leaves him, she may never find another person to have children with.
My response: "What you focus on, you attract." Her subconscious mind does not know right or wrong only what we fill it with. I believe she already knows the answer. What I suggested was to sit quietly in meditation so that her intuition can come through.
As an individual who wrestled with my son leaving his beautiful physical form on earth, I come to realize it's only temporary so that we can perform the mission we came to do. When we lose someone and were not there when they pass, we become anxious about losing anything associated with their physical being.
I found recently someone who felt they needed their ashes in order to feel them. However, as sorry as I was for their loss, if I may say so without sounding harsh, we don't have to worry about having their ashes because you have his Spirit right beside you. He sees you and will bring you comfort if you speak with him. Remember, the body is a suit of clothing we chose before coming into existence, then when it's time to go, we shed the body but not the Spirit.
My goal is to inspire others to reach their highest potential by creating hope in the face of adversity.
