In the late 70s Robyn Davidson came to Alice Springs for two years, trained camels, and prepared to make her journey across the Australian desert. This is her story.
Absolutely fascinating reading. In 2013 the movie came out.
I get a lot of clients who've seen other psychics. Those psychics many times told them predictive things that had the clients worried, sometimes for years.
This always makes me want to say, again and again . . . first, the psychic could always be wrong; second, things change. We all have free will. There may have been a strong trajectory for that direction at the time of the reading, but there is no reason the person hadn't changed their mind, their plans and thereby rendered that piece of the reading no longer viable or accurate; third, trust yourself first.
If something does not sit right with you, ignore it. It may be that the psychic is wrong, or possibly the timing on the information is not appropriate -- it could be any number of reasons that the information does not resonate with you. If it doesn't resonate, simply forget about it.
Whatever your lessons are in life, they will be back, and the timing for you to advance in those areas and learn will be appropriate, and at that point things will make sense to you.
The biggest reason I am writing this is because sometimes psychics predict the time a person will die, which is utterly ridiculous mainly because free will operates at all times.
I had a client in her eighties who was worried about what a psychic said to her 40 years ago!
Don't let a psychic or anyone determine your life! Even if you get information along these lines, use it to change things, not make it a reality. Defy them! You have free will. You can change things. You can change your future. Nothing is fated. Nothing is written in stone. Things are flexible.
Always choose the best possible direction for your life. Accept the most positive information; ignore the negative information.
I absolutely love Nan C. Merrill's version of the Psalms.
Here is the beginning of Psalm 59 (page 113, Psalms for Praying, Nan C. Merrill)
"Awaken me from my fears,
O my Beloved,
give me strength to face them
as they rise up within me;
Let your Love envelop me,
and direct my thoughts to
peaceful paths. . . ."
I think a lot the way we are One. It's a hard concept to grasp generally because our language is about discrimination to help us operate in physical reality. Yet, in Reality, all is One. We as humans are in God. God is in us.
The image that came to me yesterday was that of a sponge. A sponge is in the ocean and, at the same time, the ocean is in the sponge. There is no separation. Only different forms of expression, different energy states.
So, all at once, you are the sponge in the Great Universal Being, your individual human personality, and your God Self. It's quite nice :-)
Found another great, deep, meditative, super healing and relaxing yoga DVD.
Jane Roberts channeled the Seth books. She also psychically tuned into the world view of Paul Cezanne (besides Rembrandt, and William James).
I was reading the Cezanne book and came across this incredible passage:
"Generally speaking, most people express themselves through the world as it is: they let their existence flow through the available conventions, social and professional groupings, government or religious organizations -- and through these means they express themselves. To some extent, they disperse themselves so automatically into these ready-made cultural forms that their own inner feelings are never directly encountered. The artist is always making a new world that is his body of work. He is always encountering himself because he is not dispersing himself as others do. His stability, such as it is, is his work. It is not sanctioned by convention.
By taking himself out of that context, however, he is more aware of his sensations and reactions than others who have more or less automatic pockets in which to place them: love goes to the family or the church; hatred to the despoilers of church, property, life, or state; envy against the rich, and so forth. The artist has no place to put his emotions in those terms, and sometimes his own feelings astonish him. His emotional experience is more vivid in many ways -- for this reason; that he does not disperse it. With its energy he forms his world of pictures.
For all this, the artist's goals are often unknown to him except as they unfold. In this fashion, he goes on faith more than other men. His medium is not primarily one of words at all, so often even his thoughts are shaped and formed, without what is considered reason's substance. Not that his thoughts may not be reasonable, but that his intuitions and purposes are shapes to him rather than words; a vocabulary of pigment, light and shadow rather than letters. For his vision is concerned with inner substance, in a different way than say, a writer's is." (page 61-26, The World View of Paul Cezanne, Jane Roberts.)
This was posted by the White Eagle Lodge on Facebook without giving the exact source:
"You look around you in your world and you become disappointed by the disputes and misunderstandings between people and the conflict between the races and faiths of the world. You bemoan revelations of the things that are happening on your earth and forget that side by side with that darkness is always the angel of light. We say, do not give way to despondency when you read or hear about war and disagreement on the earth plane. It is all ultimately a sign of growth. Even when you see apparently terrible things happening, do not be pessimistic. We know that there are troubles in your land, whichever it may be, indeed all over the earth - but we see beyond your physical sight and we see a wonderful unfoldment... ... We say again that old conditions are being broken up and cleared away to make room for a fresh influx of life which is to come on the physical plane, and this life brings with it pure sweet air from those higher realms of life, which blesses all earthly life, and all humanity."
