What is inspirational writing?

Today I added 2 new categories to the blog Psychic Events, and Inspirational Writings, and I would like to explain why. As the 2 are inter-related, I will explain both in one single post

Has it ever happened to you that thoughts just flooded your mind, and you started writing them, and continued writing them until they end?

I guess this is what artists refer to as their "muse", or inspiration.

Many works of art are actually derived like this, they are inspired to talented individuals who then express this inspiration in their art, whether it is poetry, fiction, painting, sculpting, or whatever form of art they use.

People like me, who are not very artistically inclined, get inspired too. Their expression of this inspiration will however take a different form; it could be philosophical, mathematical, engineering, or whatever their mind is capable of expressing.

But where does this inspiration come from? For example, sometime I write something, and I feel like I am simply a typist, with some proofing skills, and while I am writing words, I cannot take the credit for what I write. A good example of this are the articles I wrote on Mental-Emotional-Spiritual (and Physical) balance

It has been quite a few years since I have been inspired in this way, mainly due to my life commitment and lack of time (and interest) in writing.

Lately, however, I have restarted to take an interest in my spirituality, and everything that comes with it, as my life commitment had taken me to a path that was denying me the degree of happiness that I used to enjoy when I was more spiritually inclined.

And while years ago I wasn't interested in where the words that I was writing came from, I am now older, and hopefully a little wiser, and I have started to wonder. Where does inspiration come from?

Moon by day
I have read around many of the most influential "alternative" suggestions, but the one that struck a chord most is the explanation of a medium and psychic that I am coming to learn and appreciate more daily. This is how she explains it to her student psychics and mediums (yes, psychics and mediums have schools too, to learn how to harness their gifts, and to avoid falling foul of scams!):

"One of the ways that you can work with spirit is through Inspirational Writing. This is done through a mind-to-mind link between the person doing the writing, and a person in spirit, and what happens is that the communicating spirit will blend their thoughts with the thoughts of the medium that is working. So what the medium is experiencing is usually that thoughts seem to pour in to their mind and those words are then written down.

Usually, those in spirit who work this way take this opportunity to share words of philosophy and uplifting inspiration. On occasions actual facts can be given which can be checked out later on. However, in my experience and to my understanding, that is rarer. I gather the reason is that those in spirit may use other forms of mediumship to give facts and details like that [Ed. Such as trance mediumship].

It is spirit guides and teachers that share these teachings with us and there are many developing mediums who find themselves inspired to work in this way in the beginning of their development too.

Personally, I think this is a result of how so many of us upon first starting to think about the possibility of the world of spirit actually being a reality find our thoughts fill up with questions; we wonder and marvel, we question, and so on.

And there are many in spirit who are only too happy to assist a mind in that frame of thinking by giving it more food for thought" 
[Ed. If anyone is interested in learning more about psychic school, the best I found is, and I highly recommend it]

As I find this to be the most reasonable explanation that I can relate to, I have decided to set up the new categories to the blog: Psychic Events, and Inspirational Writings.

The first will simply be a chronicle of my psychic experiences, some that I witness, and some that are completely mine. The second one is really just so that anyone reading will know that I cannot, and do not, take any credit for whatever is written in this section.

I hope you will continue to enjoy my blog, and please don't hesitate to leave comments below each post

The REAL meanings and uses of the Reiki symbols

Master Usui has indeed been gone for a while now. Yet, his teachings have preserved and informed generations of loving practitioners to continue his journey of spreading Healing throughout the world. Regrettably, when wisdom is passed down from teacher to student, and as in the case of Reiki from thousands of teachers to thousands of students, these tend to be re-interpreted and slightly changed according to the teacher’s own understanding and construal. Undesirably, this has caused Reiki to have become watered down, and not as effective as one would wish. This is why, when we read about the benefits of Reiki in most of the publically available and in the most popular articles, we are mainly told about the calming and soothing effect, and about some very limited therapeutic outcomes. This is very unfortunate. Reiki practitioners are very loving people with an extremely strong desire to help in general, and to Heal in particular. Because of this, many practitioners reso

Is the Enlightened Soul Lonely? Join our Spiritual Awakening Support Group

I was reading an extremely interesting article regarding the loneliness of the awakening mind, and I would like to expand on it. The first elaboration would be to replace the word “mind” with “soul”. This is because to us the mind’s understanding is simply a tool, a bridge that helps us to put into words, to rationalise, to make sense of all the information that our soul provide to us. It is what helps a Spiritual Being to communicate, and make sense of a Physical World, or rather the opposite, it is what allows a physical body to live and operate coherently with a spiritual entity within it. For all intents and purposes, the soul and the mind are one and same. There is also ample scientific evidence that the mind is not within the body, as thoroughly explained and referenced by Dr Hogan Craig, is his book Your Eternal Self , which is available as a free download . I passionately recommend this publication to anyone who would like to understand the scientific evidence behin

The Empath's only line of defence

I have been reading many articles about empathy lately, and I must confess I am quite disappointed by their content. These have clearly not been written by true empaths. A list of relevant articles is included at the end of this post While I find that all of these articles have, to a greater or lesser degree, a certain amount of truth within them, they all fail to see the world from an empath's perspective. Firstly, there is a difference between an empath, and a person with empathy. And, although in my mind an empath is clearly also a psychic, there is a difference between the typical psychic, and an empath. Let us start by looking at the definition of empathy on the Oxford Dictionary : The ability to understand and share the feelings of another I would like to emphasize the point that empathy is different from sympathy. Borrowing from the notes given in the Oxford Dictionary: People often confuse the words empathy and sympathy . Empathy means ‘the ability to u

Alzheimer's and Dementia

By  +Cathy Freeman I have been working as a Psychic Healer and Life Coach for many years at home and abroad. While doing so I have helped clients who have a parent who suffers from Alzheimer. When I explained to them how their relative viewed their world (as detailed below) it helped them to understand. This put to rest the hurtful feeling that they had been forgotten, unloved or were being punished for something they had done. This changed the caring or visiting of the parent from dreading it into a joy for them as there was no fighting, crying or hitting. Actually one client had lots of fun and laughter as her dad repeated what chats he had had with various dead acquaintances and learned a lot from them. This applies to both men and women alike but for the clarity of this explanation I am going to use a woman. Everyone has the ability to be psychic but it is the strong logic in some that prevents them believing and trusting in something they cannot see and think it is only the

Duterte hero of a nation of staunch survivors

Hey there is typhoon, I better bring an umbrella! As I am cowering in the relative safety of my cement house during typhoon Nina in Laguna, Philippines, watching the torrential rain and gale winds of a signal 3 typhoon on the other side of my window, there are many thoughts racing through my head. Back home, we would probably be declaring a state of emergency. People would be crying foul over the lack of government intervention, the absence of emergency services in the stricken zones, the refusal of insurance companies to provide cover for those affected. There would be countless stories on the news about this or that person losing all their belonging, being made homeless, damaged cars … and a list of tragic stories to make our sensitive perception overwhelm with indignation and sorrow. Yet here life continue as normal. Nothing stops a Filipino from doing everything they can to put food on the table of their over-sized extended family. The shaky sari-sari store (the loca

Thought of the day: HAPPINESS

Some say happiness is fleeting. Happiness lasts just an instant. Live in the moment, or you will lose it. How dim such view is. How sad a life that is made but of fleeting moments of happiness.  Happiness comes from within. Happiness is a state of being. Happiness is from inside your soul.  Let your soul shine through, and happiness will overflow.  No difficulty, hardship, or sorrow can contain the happiness of the soul.  For it is the sadness, the gloom and doom of our lives that is fleeting, temporary, and that will soon disappear.  The happiness of our souls is eternal.  Leave in the moment, but learn from your past and look forward to the future with your soul guiding your every step of the way. That is where real happiness lies

Thought of the day: DEEDS

Nothing disappears.  From matter to matter. From Life to life. From Soul to Eternity, from Deed to Deed.  When we die, our body turns into food for the creatures of this earth, and earth will provide new matter for a new life in the mother’s womb.  When a flower wither, its life will go to another flower to blossom and let us enjoy its beauty.  When we pass away, our soul simply goes to another plane, and then to other planes still, for eternity.    So our actions do not disappear. Whatever good or evil we do, they do not disappear, but become new deeds from someone who has received our own act.  We may forget, our friends may too, but a lasting legacy is left from anything we do. What legacy that is, it is up to us.  Choose wisely.

Spirituality vs. Spiritualism

A couple of months ago I wrote the post we need a new religion . I would like to progress on my thinking in this article. In my last post, I wrote: "We need a new Religion. A Religion that transcends all other religions, while encompassing all the commonalities. A Religion that emphasises how little we know. No certainties. No Dogmas. No Saints. No infallibility. No blind belief that the words of some people are to be taken at face value and are more valuable than the words of others. A Religion that does not insult our intellect, our sensitivity, and our sensibility. A Religion that lets us explore, study, share with other faiths, worship, and live what is the reality of God." Well, this is something that I have been pondering on for many years. When asked, I always used to remark that I am more spiritual, than religious. And yet, this is not entirely true. While it is true that I am spiritual, that I pursue activities that are highly spiritually charged, such as

Different Ways to be Psychic

Everybody has the ability to be psychic. We all have gut instinct, intuition, or spidey senses which are all psychic information. Just building up trust each time we are right about what we know helps us to develop our psychic abilities.  We can get information in two ways, one is by picking up energies, such as residual energy left in a place, or connecting to someone's aura.  In this way we can pick up events that have happened in a certain place, or even understand animals and plants, or can be aware of what happened to a certain person, what they feel, or what they wish for. Another way is to get information from Spirit.  Spirit are more aware than us of what is happening, and they are less tied to time and space than we are, so the information that we can get from them is much more detailed, in-depth, and can even include glimpses of the future.   There are many ways in which we can get information, but below are the most commonly known and used ways that we g
