A Thanksgiving Story

Thanksgiving 1964. Four college roommates had decided to buy a turkey and trimmings for their Thanksgiving away from homes and families. This turkey dinner would not only feed them, it would also provide two or three days of leftovers for meals for these always hungry, borderline poor, men.

Thanksgiving

While eating this feast, there was a knock on the door. Answering it revealed a traveling family that needed a meal. They were offered food from the table and gratefully accepted. There would still be enough leftovers for a meal or so.

After everyone was finished eating, there was another knock and another needy family asked for help. It was late in the day and the only meal available was the leftover turkey. Once offered, it was accepted and quickly eaten.

The roommates had no leftover turkey for future meals. This was not as planned.

Instead of reheated turkey, all they had was the indescribably warm feeling of helping those less fortunate than them – and a memory that never fades.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PSYCHICS AND MEDIUMS

Tom Fitzgerald:

This is a great definition for everyone to read!

Originally posted on Spirit Contacts:

seance2I am often asked what the difference is between a psychic and a medium.  The simple answer, say many of my colleagues, is that every medium is also a psychic, but not every psychic is a medium.

Here is the breakdown: 

  • Psychics tune into your energy or that of others who are living and linked to you.They link to the living.
  • Some  can perceive certain physical conditions in the human body- these are known as medical intuitives. I do a great deal of this, but some of it is Mediumship.. more about that later.
  • They can focus on your financial situation and project- over a given period of time- how things will progress. The caveat here is that with Free Will always in operation, this is inclined to change. That is, any choice or action taken by you or another individual can create a different timeline…

Grow Your ESP

ESP (Extra Sensory Perception) is part of every human. We all have the ability to sense things in our lives through other than our five senses. And as with all talents, it takes practice, practice and more practice to utilize this sense to its fullest.

Most people do not want to spend time practicing because it feels too much like work and they live in a society where instant gratification is the norm. Practicing anything delays gratification and thus is put off in favor of something here and now.

Yet with practice most things become better and better. Practicing psychic awareness will give you insight into all forms of energy that surround you and enable you to be aware of any threats or events that may be negative so you can take appropriate action to avoid problems.

The easiest way to practice is to sit down, take several deep breaths to relax your body and tune into the energy you feel around you. Listen to sounds, feel air movement, smell the passing fragrances, note the feelings of your body as it sits comfortably at rest.

Then combine what you are sensing into a broader awareness. Smell the sounds around you. Hear the feelings on your skin. See the smells and hearing as they pass over you. The mixture of all of your senses will bring new awareness to your mind. With this awareness, you will start to notice another un-named input that will be your ESP.

It will come to you as a sense that has no definite identity and yet you will know with clarity that which is coming through. It will give you input into unknowns and mysteries and an openness that will permit you to make strong, positive statements about events that have yet to happen.

ESP will start relatively small in your mind and will quickly grow. With practice, the knowledge of that which is coming will soon be a common as your other senses. Do not expect instant awareness but accept understanding as it occurs. When you have practiced successfully, you will be able to look back to the beginning of your practice and realize how far you have advance.

Growing your ESP is fun and worthwhile. Try growing it now.

Common Sense

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

Knowing when to come in out of the rain;

Why the early bird gets the worm

Life isn’t always fair;

and maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers;

I Know My Rights

I Want It Now

Someone Else Is To Blame

I’m A Victim

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

Prevent common sense from being lost. Use your metaphysical skills in combination with common sense and see how strong common sense becomes!

Humans In The Cosmos

Creating the physicalness of the universes was an awesome event. Upon observing the explosion which had created the cosmos, the greaterbeings and Ultimate Source felt something wasn’t quite right.

They looked around and said in effect, “We’re missing something.” They knew what had been done by creating the cosmos, but they lacked the physicalness to appreciate the result of their actions. They realized the level of energy they were, but knew it was not the ultimate maximum level of which they were capable. They could have stayed at that lower level, but they knew that it was not enough. There had to be something more.

Essentially, the greaterbeings were bored. If they were going to exist forever and this was the middle of forever, what should be done? The Ultimate Source wanted growth and development.

The solution was much like the elements of oxygen and hydrogen. Separately oxygen and hydrogen are valuable and identifiable, together they are water. Together the two are more than they were individually. They do not need the other to exist, but they do need each other to be water. The Spiritual Side needed humans that would be a compound of the spiritualness and the physicality of the universe.

So humans were created as a physical presence in the cosmos.
