A Powerful Advice on How to Live a Meaningful Life, Given By a 24-Year-Old Dying Man

BY SOFO ARCHON

Living Life

Sometimes we don’t start living to our fullest potential until we’re faced with our own mortality. When we realize that life is temporary, we begin to feel grateful for all the gifts that existence has open-handedly given us, but which we didn’t appreciate before. In those moments we are reminded of how precious life is, and we become motivated to make the most of out of it as long as we can.

The text that you are about to read was written by young man who was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Just a short time before he took his last breath, he decided to put down his thoughts on reddit in order to offer his empowering advice on how to live a meaningful life. It is a very moving text, coming straight from the heart, which has inspired millions of people from around the world to make positive change.

A Powerful Advice From a Dying Man

I am only 24 years old, yet I have actually already chosen my last tie. It’s the one that I will wear on my funeral a few months from now. It may not match my suit, but I think it’s perfect for the occasion.

The cancer diagnosis came too late to give me at least a tenuous hope for a long life, but I realized that the most important thing about death is to ensure that you leave this world a little better than it was before you existed with your contributions. The way I’ve lived my life so far, my existence or more precisely the loss of it, will not matter because I have lived without doing anything impactful. Before, there were so many things that occupied my mind. When I learned how much time I had left, however, it became clear which things are really important. So, I am writing to you for a selfish reason. I want to give meaning to my life by sharing with you what I have realized:

  • Don’t waste your time on work that you don’t enjoy. It is obvious that you cannot succeed in something that you don’t like. Patience, passion, and dedication come easily only when you love what you do.
  • It’s stupid to be afraid of others’ opinions. Fear weakens and paralyzes you. If you let it, it can grow worse and worse every day until there is nothing left of you, but a shell of yourself. Listen to your inner voice and go with it. Some people may call you crazy, but some may even think you‘re a legend.
  • Take control of your life. Take full responsibility for the things that happen to you. Limit bad habits and try to lead a healthier life. Find a sport that makes you happy. Most of all, don’t procrastinate. Let your life be shaped by decisions you made, not by the ones you didn’t.
  • Appreciate the people around you. Your friends and relatives will always be an infinite source of strength and love. That is why you shouldn’t take them for granted.

It is difficult for me to fully express my feelings about the importance of these simple realizations, but I hope that you will listen to someone who has experienced how valuable time is. I’m not upset because I understand that the last days of my life have become meaningful. I only regret that I will not be able to see a lot of cool stuff that should happen soon like the creation of AI, or Elon Musk’s next awesome project. I also hope that the war in Syria and Ukraine will end soon.

We care so much about the health and integrity of our body that until death, we don’t notice that the body is nothing more than a box – a parcel for delivering our personality, thoughts, beliefs and intentions to this world. If there is nothing in this box that can change the world, then it doesn’t matter if it disappears. I believe that we all have potential, but it also takes a lot of courage to realize it. You can float through a life created by circumstances, missing day after day, hour after hour. Or, you can fight for what you believe in and write the great story of your life.

I hope you will make the right choice. Leave a mark in this world. Have a meaningful life, whatever definition it has for you. Go towards it. The place we are leaving is a beautiful playground, where everything is possible. Yet, we are not here forever. Our life is a short spark in this beautiful little planet that flies with incredible speed to the endless darkness of the unknown universe. So, enjoy your time here with passion. Make it interesting. Make it count! Thank you!\

16 Parents Share the Creepy Things Their Kids Have Said About Their Past Lives

By Caralynn Lippo

“My 3-year-old said, ‘I was your mom in heaven. 😱

Past Lives

Kids are prone to saying some pretty wacky shit. Usually, toddlers’ random outbursts are either nonsensical or funny. But sometimes, they veer into legit terrifying territory.

In a recent AskReddit thread, readers were asked about times their child has done or said something to indicate that they were remembering a past life (a phenomenon observed semi-frequently in children). Whether they were sharing things their own kids had said or moments that they were told happened in their own childhood, some of the most popular responses will seriously creep you out.

1. “The car hit me, my other mummy cried, then I came to you.”

“He was 3 and pretending to run over his Lego men. When asked to stop, he said, ‘That’s how I died isn’t it?’ ‘No, you’ve never died.’ ‘Yes, I have! When I was 2 last time. The car hit me, my other mummy cried, then I came to you.’ He’s a teen now, doesn’t remember a thing about it.” –Nodgenodgewinkwink

2. “I’m sorry I left you before, mommy.”

“My friend had a miscarriage before she had her first daughter. A few years ago, when her daughter was about 4, a group of us were at a party. Her daughter was sitting on her lap and said something along the lines of ‘I’m sorry I left you before, mommy. I was hurting really bad and I wasn’t ready.’ My friend asked her was she meant, and her daughter said she left her before she was born but came back. Super creepy. Daughter doesn’t remember this conversation and still doesn’t know about the miscarriage.” –workbidness

3. “Oh, that’s where I died, isn’t it?”

“My family took everyone on a trip to see their old neighborhood. They drove by a house where, about 15 years earlier, a little girl was hit by a car and died. My cousin – who was about 4 at the time, never had been in the neighborhood, and never heard this tragic story – stopped what she was doing and said, ‘Oh, that’s where I died, isn’t it?’ She then resumed playing with her dolls (or whatever it was she was doing).” –westsideHK

4. “The teacher told my mother that it was spooky.”

“My mom loves to tell this story: When I was young, I really wanted to learn Russian, so they got me into a class. In general, Russian was very easy for me to pick-up and use. It sort of ‘made sense,’ and I could construct complex sentences. The teacher told my mother that it was spooky, because I could speak it in a way that they hadn’t been teaching me (I could figure out colloquial phrases). To this day, I still have it and haven’t lost my Russian.” –PippenRedux

5. “I’ve been here.”

“My 3-year-old niece, in a hotel near her home, said ‘I’ve been here. I used to sit in this chair and knit.’ Wouldn’t say anything else when pressed further. Another time in an antiques shop, we looked at an old school desk with a flip-top lid when she, bemused, said ‘Where’s the inkwell?!’ It just seemed strange that she’d expect there to be one.” –blinky84

6. “He gave a description of what he used to look like, and then how he died.”

“While chatting with my 4-year-old son, he started going into vivid descriptions of being a friendly old man who his neighbors were fond of. He gave a description of what he used to look like, and then how he died, how he felt once he died, and how he woke up again while being born. The way he talked made it seem like he was recalling going to the zoo the previous weekend. He was so casual about it that when he looked at my expression on my face he said ‘What? What’s wrong?’ I don’t believe in past lives, but that was strange.” –wokeupsoaked

7. “It wasn’t a dream, I remembered.”

“My daughter, right before she turned 5, was in our hall in the middle of the night, still asleep, whimpering and crying. I got her to come lay down with me, and when I asked her what the dream was, she got very upset and said ‘It wasn’t a dream, I remembered.’ She told me she remembered when she was a bad dog, and they made her go to sleep. I asked her about it again later and she got very upset, said she was a bad dog and started crying saying she didn’t want to remember it again. She has no idea what it means to put a dog down, let alone that it is what happens to ‘bad dogs.'” –leather_and_lead

8. “When he turned 5, he told me he had never made it this far.”

“First, when my son was 3, he told me that he was once kidnapped and the police accidentally shot and killed him when they were trying to rescue him. When he turned 5, he told me he had never made it this far. Also when he was 5, we drove past my grandparents’ old house (they have been gone 16 and 18 years now). He told me, ‘I used to play in that house with Pappy (my dad) when I was little, except the house used to be white.’ The house did indeed used to be white, and it had been painted an ugly gray. My dad also had nine siblings, three of which died in infancy.” –4theloveoffiber

9. “That sounded like my real Mommy’s voice!”

“My son went for over a year talking about his other mommy and daddy, with a completely straight and serious face. We have a blended family, so he has me (Mom) and at his father’s house his Dad, Stepmom, and brother. He said he had two fake mommies and a fake daddy, and then a set of real ones. When trying to get clarification (thinking he was having trouble adapting to new family roles), he informed us that we were the fakes and that his real parents were much older and lived far away on a farm, with his older brother. That story came up off and on, as well as weird side statements from him. We had him at the ER one time, in a private room. He hears voices outside which he normally wouldn’t pay any mind to. He perked up, looked at the door, and goes, ‘That sounded like my real Mommy’s voice!.’ He was very excited and animated about it (my kid is usually pretty deadpan, so that was off, too). I decided to just ride it out, but admittedly it did freak me out at first. He hasn’t done it in awhile.” –SerenityNeutraylis

10. “Now they will be gone for 1,000 days.”

“I am raised Roman Catholic. My son is raised Roman Catholic. But I was dating this Muslim guy who would play prayers constantly (that were on YouTube). This particular day, my boyfriend was playing a prayer that’s supposed to protect you from jinn. My 3-year-old son looked up from his coloring book and said clear as day ‘Now they will be gone for 1,000 days.’ My boyfriend looked him dead in the eye and was like, ‘How do you know that?’ My son smiled, shrugged, and continued to color. I don’t know if this is true, but my boyfriend explained that if you recited that specific prayer it was supposed to banish evil spirits for 1,000 days. To this day, I still get chills when I think about it.” –foufinha

11. “I cried to my mum that it was like when the soldiers on horses came to take us away.”

“When I was about 3, I used to tell my mum stories of being a little Chinese girl. Apparently, I lived at the bottom of a hill with my grandmother, and I died in a flood. When I was 6 or 7, I came home from school upset that I’d been surrounded by a group of boys, and I cried to my mum that it was like when the soldiers on horses came to take us away.” –the_procastinata

12. “I was your mom in heaven.”

“My 3-year-old said, ‘I was your mom in heaven.’ Multiple times. When I was six weeks pregnant with her, my mom died unexpectedly the day she found out the secret that I was pregnant at 40 with what would be her last and 21st grandchild. We were going to surprise her on her 75th birthday, two weeks later, but a niece let the secret out. When my girl was 4, we were looking through pictures boxes. I have no family pictures posted in my house. Later that night, I realized my girl took three pictures of my mom and put then in her room. She’s never seen pictures of my mom before. I asked her why she took those pictures and she said, ‘Because I’m pretty.'” –capnvontrappswhistle

13. “And that is how I realized my son was magpie in his past life.”

“I asked my son once who he was before he was my son. He was small, maybe 3. He looked at me sadly and said, ‘It was dark and cold, and I wasn’t anything. Just all by myself.’ And then be perked up and said, ‘And before that I had black wings and I flew! And I’d take shiny stuff, because all shiny things are MINE!’ And that is how I realized my son was magpie in his past life. And gave me a clue where to find my missing earrings. He had a hidden cache of jewelry in his room, the little imp.” –Froggyloofa

14. “She knelt in front of it like a Templar praying to the cross of the crossguard.”

“The first time my 6-year-old step-daughter got to handle my practice broadsword she knelt in front of it like a Templar praying to the cross of the crossguard. It was weirdly solemn, too.” –ispringer

15. “She jumped into a small low spot in our yard and yelled ‘Foxhole!'”

“My then 2.5-year-old daughter heard a loud boom, then jumped into a small low spot in our yard and yelled ‘Foxhole!’ with a terrified look on her face. She had never seen any movies about wars or anything. Definitely had me curious.” –Jessabelle98

16. “Why! Why! I got married, I just got married…”

“My daughter would freak out and start crying and screaming while repeating, ‘Why! Why! I got married, I just got married, I got married.’ Over and over again, with this tone filled with grief that I never heard come out of a child so small. 2 and a 1/2 is pretty young to be sobbing your heart out. It was a cry that I had only ever heard from adults who have lost the love of their life.” –ViolentGrace

Feng Shui Bagua Cures

Feng Shui Bagua

Since most of us are aware by now that everything is energy, why not try out a little Feng Shui and see if it helps?  It for sure can’t hurt.

I’ve been “into” Feng Shui for about 20-30 years now.  And while I can’t say I always remember to follow its principles, when I do, I notice things changing.  Sometimes the things change in subtle ways, and sometimes they change in sudden and sharp ways.  Thing is, they do change.

SO…. if there’s an area in your life that could use some sprucing up, pay heed.  Address the problem areas with the colors and solutions mentioned above.

In Feng Shui your front door is the entrance to this diagram.  So, if your front door is in the center of the front wall of your home, it represents your Career area.  If over to the left of center, it is your Skills & Knowledge sector.  Obviously too, if it’s over to the right it falls in your Helpful People & Travel area.

What you do is stand looking at your home’s front door.  Then you look at everything as you’re “looking into” the space.  NOT from standing in the room and looking out… rather, looking in.  The correct alignment is your view as you enter the doorway for the different rooms or areas of your home.

Meaning, if you walk in your front door the far left back of your house, again, as you’re looking in, is the Wealth & Prosperity area.

Have fun with it.  Seriously though, it does help.

Free Will Choice & Fated Happenings

By Calleen Wilder

Free Will
This is SO true.  This is also why I always tell people that they have the power to alter nearly any outcome I might see in a reading.  I also tell them they have the power to really screw some stuff up too, as well as fix it.

It’s my firmest of beliefs that we come here to exercise our Free Will.  We come here to make decisions and choices, good or bad.  AND… for every choice we make we learn something.  Sometimes something great like how easy life can be if we allow it to be.  Sometimes something hard like wishing we’d have just left well enough alone.

Too though I also think there are things and situations that are just fated to happen to us.  I also believe there are many people who are fated to come into our lives.

And on occasion, I believe we can’t change our fate.  Yet other times I believe our choices alter how these fated things affect us.  Mostly how hard or easy it turns out to be.

As for the future people, I am certain that our choices decide if they become lovers, friends, enemies, or something far more neutral.  Plus, our free will choices can speed up or slow down the timing of these future meetings.

Not always though.  And that’s the tricky part.
We don’t know what is assured and what is assured with altered possibilities.  

In my mind the reasoning behind not getting to know all of these things is simply that if we did know it would almost certainly influence our free will.

I mean why chose one thing when you know another is a certainty?  Yes, it’d be SO much easier if we could know.  But, I guess, that isn’t the point.  You know, life lessons, hard knocks, and all.

This is why I ALWAYS tell my clients that I can see what is most likely to happen if they continue forward as is.  BUT… if they change something, maybe even one small little thing, everything might work out in a very different fashion.

Again though, it might not too.

Here’s the thing, I read energy.  I also talk to those in the Spirit World.  As a result, sprinkled throughout every single reading I do there are “fated” things.  The things that will happen no matter what we do.

Trick is, I have zero way of knowing which of the things we speak of are those fated things.  It’s my truest belief that no one does.  Well… no one living anyway.

So does that mean we’re all basically screwed (sorry… best way to say it)?  No.  It just means we have some power, some control, and are nearly always given a choice.  It also means life isn’t for the faint of heart.

Still…. I do so love that Quantum Physics is really digging into some of the more intricate layers of our beings.  It helps verify what I’ve been telling people for years, even if only in my mind.

In the end, some stuff is going to happen during the course of your life whether you stay put or move to the North Pole.

Other things will also happen, but there’s a variable in the event.  Meaning that the outcome is entirely dependent upon what you’ve done until now, as well as what you’ve decided to do going forward.

And still there are other things that will never happen to you in this lifetime… precisely because they weren’t meant to.

People like me can help you sort out a whole bunch of this, but never all of it.  We just don’t have that kind of power.  Truth be known, we probably don’t want it as it could seriously alter your life to the point that you just quit participating in it… and that’ no fun.

Still… I find this very interesting.  Hope you do too.

BEING SPIRITUAL DOESN’T MEAN YOU’RE ALWAYS POSITIVE

Spirituality

There is a massive misconception in the self-help, personal development industry that the teachers are all riding magical unicorns, manifesting rainbows, followed by butterflies and leaving footprints of glittery sparkles with every step they take.

The perception is that people that ‘walk the talk’ need to be happy all the time, emotionally balanced, calmed, chilled out with not a grain of sand venturing out of their perfectly groomed Zen garden. This isn’t how it is at all and it’s not how it’s meant to be either…

The true teachers out there have a deep understanding that shit hits the fan in order for them to grow ‘spiritually’.

It’s a profound, sacred part of the deal that enables them to experience the fullness of life in order to teach new perspectives to their students and be of value.

BEING SPIRITUAL MEANS THAT YOU’LL SCREW UP BECAUSE YOU NEED TO. IT’S PART OF THE GAME PLAN.

Yesterday I had some pretty severe emotional upheaval to deal with. Let’s just categorize it as ‘family drama’. You know, the kind that pretty much 100% of the population has to deal with at one point or another in their lifetime.

Several ‘nasty’ (for want of a better word) nuggets of perception were hurled at me that were an attempt to discredit the work I do teaching people about ‘spirituality’ and creating a life they love. I was pretty furious. Fuming.

Things got really ugly and my energy went berzerko (AKA batshit crazy). It’s a space I don’t usually allow myself to enter into, but my energy was so out of whack that I succumbed to the dark side.

BEING SPIRITUAL MEANS THAT YOU’RE HUMAN

We’re all going to make mistakes, be in bad moods, make choices that hurt people and find ourselves in the quicksand-esque landscape of conflict…

After the storm passes we can then wrap it up in a pretty personal development bow saying things like…

‘it was meant to happen’

‘everything happens in divine timing’ (which it does, I’m big believer in this).

‘so and so isn’t as spiritual as me’ (<<this is bull crap)

BEING SPIRITUAL MEANS THAT YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE ANNOYING ABOUT IT OR BEAT YOURSELF UP. YOU JUST NEED BALANCE.

How The Old Soul Loves Differently

Via PositiveReminders.co

Old Soul

An old soul is essentially someone who is young, but prefers to be around older people, and has a more mature outlook on life than most people their age. Old souls tend to spend a lot of their time alone, and a lot of people seem to misunderstand them. Contrary to what people think, old souls aren’t lonely, they are just comfortable with themselves and enjoy their own company. When it comes to love and being in relationships, they also express their love differently, and here, we show you how.

1. Homebody. Old souls are homebodies, which means they are always looking for the person that will be willing to stay in with them on a Friday night, perhaps reading poetry over candle light with a bottle of wine.

2. Materialists. Old souls aren’t impressed by materialistic things, so if you’re hoping for that new set of diamond earrings, keep wishing. An old soul will likely choose to write you a love letter over buying you jewelry.

3. Communication. Old souls are great communicators, and will tell you what they are feeling. They don’t play games, especially when it comes to relationships. Don’t be taken aback by their honesty however, because they do mean well at the end of the day.

4. Emotions. Old souls aren’t capable of having one night stands because they get emotionally invested in whoever they are dating. They feel things on a deeper level than most people do, and don’t open up to just anyone.

5. Settling. Old souls think about life in the grand scheme of things. For example, an old soul won’t settle down with you unless they think there is some future potential in the relationship. They don’t do things for no reason.

6. Shy. Most old souls have a hard time fitting in with other people because they don’t seem to have a lot in common with others. An old soul might seem standoffish at first, but they’re really just shy. So don’t assume that because they aren’t saying much, they don’t like you.

7. Understanding. They value your opinion, and are good listeners. They are very understanding, and are good at seeing things from different perspectives. So if you find yourself in an argument with an old soul, they will try to come up with a solution for your problem rather than argue with you about it for hours on end.

8. Dating. They tend to go for people that are older than they are. The hardest part about dating for an old soul is finding someone their age that understands them, which is why they end up going after people who are older than they are.

9. Relaxing. Old souls might have a hard time loosening up, so it might take some prying to get them to relax. They have a tendency to take things too seriously at times, so try to have some patience with them when they seem on edge.

10. Sensitive. Old souls are extremely sensitive, so watch what you say around them. While they will always be honest with you about their feelings, they also expect the same from you, and if they find out you aren’t being completely honest with them, they might feel betrayed.

11. Creative. Old souls are creative and will put a lot of thought into a date night with you. Rather than your usual dinner and a movie, an old soul will make sure you have a memorable date night experience with them and will take things to the next level.

12. Intuition. Old souls are really in tune with their intuitions, and can tell right away when something is wrong. Don’t try to hide your real feelings from them, because there is no use in doing so.

13. Realists. They can come off as pessimistic at times, but in fact, they are just realists. They are constantly feeling disappointed by humanity, so sometimes they need their partner to help remind them that things aren’t always so bad.

14. Independence. While old souls love spending time at home with their significant others, they also value their alone time, so don’t feel offended if your partner requests some time apart.

15. Worth it. At the end of the day, dating old souls can come with some difficulties, but it’s worth it because they will be extremely loving, loyal, and understanding of your needs.

Dark Night of the Soul – Surviving Grief, Divorce & More

Calleen Wilder

Dark Night of the Soul

As the New Year approaches I wanted to share this, along with my interpretation of what a Dark Night of the Soul consists of. I wanted to look deeply into just how hard life’s tests can be. But also, why I think it’s set up this way.

After all, 2016 is a “9” Universal Year for everyone. Meaning, we all closed the door on something or someone pretty meaningful this last year. We also ended a 9 Year Cycle. Granted, our Personal Year Numbers are more prevalent, or perhaps better said, more personally relevant. Yet, the ending the “9” Year brings was always the backdrop for whatever personal was happening in your life.

For me, the last three years have felt pretty miserable. I’ve lost a lot, in nearly every part of my life. My daughter passed away unexpectedly three years ago this month. My oldest son and I lost our very close connection thanks to a woman who needed that connection gone. She is gone now, but the connection hasn’t been reestablished, and may never be… at least not in the same way, although I pray for more.

Everyone who knows me knows just how much those two children meant to me, and yet, I had to release both of them within the same year, and I wonder, “How is that fair”? I can’t say it is. What I can say is that it is.

At the end of 2015 my husband of 29 years said he wanted a divorce. Now, this wasn’t the first time he had toyed with the idea. But after the loss of my two eldest, I knew it would be the last. So, in January of this year our divorce was final.

This resulted in a need for me to once again support myself entirely, as a new house, and the subsequent new mortgage, were now all mine.  Not to mention the light bill, the car payment, etc… Having not supported myself entirely for the last 18 years (since our youngest was born) this created an immediate and urgent need, and yes, fear… inside of me.

With all of these endings, and the loss of my marriage, my home, my financial security, along with my two oldest children, I sincerely wondered if I had done something terribly wrong. If I were living wrong. If I was on the wrong side of the higher powers. I had far more questions than I had answers.

Yet I realize when combined, this was my hardest and scariest Dark Night of the Soul call.  It ended up I bought a house somehow (still not sure how I qualified).  I moved in earlier this year, along with my son.  Still, even after having managed that I still had no idea of how I would support us.  But I have… or perhaps “they” have. The money always shows up.

Today I’m in the process of opening an entirely different business, one I will go into more detail about on this blog in the coming months. Some of you will have interest, others will not. But this new business idea sort of fell in my lap.  I realized early on it will support us comfortably too, which is what fate and destiny have sort of ordained I now do.

I also realize how lucky I am that my youngest is still with me, still motivating my heart to keep on beating. Too, I’m so blessed that I have such a strong belief in that whatever happens needed to happen… regardless of how much heartbreak you go through to get to the other side of it.

In the end, I’ve had to rediscover who I am, outside of wife, mother, and part-time psychic/medium. I had to once again breathe life into that terribly independent side of myself.  The side of me that got put on the back-burner while I tended to the life I was living at the time.

What I found is that I really, really like having my own place.  One that is all mine. I like painting, weeding, shoveling, caulking, and doing what is needed to round off all the rough corners by myself too.

Naturally, if I could have my children back I’d give this all back. Maybe then that’s precisely why I can’t have them.  Maybe the Universe had a bigger plan for me than I would have undertaken otherwise.

Maybe I was being freed up for something… perhaps something I planned to do during this life’s sojourn to this planet. I don’t know. What I do know is that most ties and encumbrances that have existed in my life for over 38 years are now completely gone. Even the new business I’m initiating will not require a lot of scheduled maintenance once up and running.

Perhaps then, this was my destiny, although I must have been drunk as heck when I signed up for it (lol).

Being a Virgo with a Capricorn moon (meaning I’m super organized and can plan something to death) taking a leap into the unknown was entirely unlike me. Sure, I’d been broke before. BUT… I always had a job that would cover my expenses. This time, I did not have that luxury. Yet as I said, it has worked out somehow.

Who knows, perhaps in taking this leap into the unknown, without any nets, is precisely what I needed to prove, if only to myself, that all the things I believe in are real. To actually have proven to me that we really aren’t ever alone in this life, in all of its pain and glory.

To also witness that if the need arises, provided we follow what we know we must do, the way really will present itself.

All I know is that even though my heart has been broken severely, many times, over the last few years, it’s still beating. AND… I still know how to love, how to forgive, how to believe, and most importantly of all, how to trust those I’ve always trusted to have my back (they aren’t mortal, by the way).

I fully expect a new life to unfold before me during the coming “1” Universal Year. I’m incredibly anxious to see where I’m headed… perhaps even being shown why I came here in the first place. That would be a just reward I think.  Still I’m hopeful… or delusional… either way, I’m still breathing I guess.

The reason I’m sharing all of this with you is so you can also know that even if life has punched you in the gut a few times this past year, you are not alone. And I believe strongly, if you keep striving to do the best you know how to do, a way will be shone. As an added bonus, your life will likely become far more authentically who you are as a result of walking blindly through the night.

Dark Nights of the Soul are hard… almost unimaginable until you get through it. Yet, keep walking… your path will find you. That’s the only thing I’m entirely sure of anymore.

God Bless.  My Hope is that you too have a Prosperous, Magical, and Love-Filled 2017.

Brilliant Insight About Being Different

I stumbled upon this and had to share it with all of you…. it speaks so loudly to me, and I know it will do so for a few of you too. What a brilliant summation of being misunderstood, and perhaps finally understanding that it’s okay to be misunderstood, just as long as you’re alright with you. I love this!

A SUPER Accurate Personality Test That’s FREE

Personality Test

You know I always share things that I find super interesting… so if you haven’t already taken the Myers Briggs Personality Test, take it here.  I took this test for the first time yesterday and it blew me away.

Obviously, I already know my Numerology and my Astrology, and they all fit.  But this adds a whole other dimension for me understanding why I act and feel the way I do.  I tested as an INFJ, which means I think out of my right and left brain almost equally.  Meaning, my being a Virgo (practical, anal, down-to-earth planner) with a Capricorn Moon (persistent, determined, level-headed workaholic), while also being a Psychic/Medium, finally makes SENSE.  I actually can do both simultaneously.  I mean I always knew I could… but even in my mind, I couldn’t make the numbers & astrology add up to what I’ve done for a living most of my life.

Plus, it went on to talk about how I’m a SUPER private person.  And, I am… ask my ex.  He drove me INSANE sharing every single piece of information he knew about him, me, our life, and anything else he stumbled upon with anyone who cared to listen.  Some days I seriously begged him to just shut the heck up… NOW.  This was something I believe we discussed rather frequently (hahaha).

Anyway, enough about me. Just hear that this test helped me put even more of my strange pieces together.  Do yourself a favor, take it.  Be SUPER honest though.  Don’t say what you think is right, say what is true about you.  Too, always try to stay away from the middle choice… go one side or the other and you’ll find out so much about yourself.

I didn’t end up paying the additional fee for the expanded version, although I’m sure it’s worth it.  Still what I did read hit this rusty old nail of a woman right on the head.

SUPER FUN!
