In Springtime formerly barren, leafless tress begin budding.. The vernal equinox is March 21st this year. Before the month’s end millions will celebrate Easter, followed in less than another month with Passover & Unleavened Bread.. It is a time of New Beginnings.
So what does a spiritual teacher’s showing up alive after being publicly killed – demonstrating that physical death is not the end of everything – have to do with not being a table? Glad you asked.
Funny thing about Spring – it shows up every year – without fail. Always.. even after rough winters, long winters, mild winters. Could this be Nature’s way of reminding us that – no matter what else happens – we’re going to get through this? Could that be possible?
Whether you believe in a resurrection from the dead or not, you can’t help but notice that Life Goes On. Spring is evidence for even the most obstinate atheist that LIFE GOES ON.
One statement from Abraham-Hicks explains it: You are not a table. One reason people don’t like the idea of dying is they don’t understand what the process is. It is not “all over”. Many of us have some vague idea.. if we do good works, are nice to people, get saved, etc. we get to go to where we’ll have it easy – sit on a cloud and play a harp…
The truth is WAY better. To make a table, we get some wood, fashion it into legs and a top, fit and secure all of the pieces together, sand it down, apply stain and varnish, etc. and – after a certain amount of time and effort, we are done. Not so with you and me, my friend. We are not getting finished.
WHAT? You mean this whole lifetime of learning, improving, forgiving.. all this pain and suffering and so-called life lessons are not enough? We don’t get to end and we don’t get a break?
I didn’t say that. The point is that – believe it or not – even after we live an entire lifetime, we still want to grow. There is within consciousness this desire to improve, get more, do more, be more. It is what we ARE, my sentient sibling.
Solomon told us, “The eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear with hearing.” Even if drugged into tranquility with anti-depressants, et al, we yearn for more. We are Growth-Seeking Beings. And no.. it doesn’t stop with death.
In our work we access Grace. We tell folks that if and as they are willing, they can get better. Are we saying it depends on the individual how much love they can experience? That Grace, while totally free, can be inhibited by our resistance to it? Absolutely! So then, what shall we do?
II Peter 3:18 tells believers to “..grow in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ.” What that means is: Grace and Knowledge are not limited.
So Spring Forward. If not Knowing, at least being exposed to these two ideas:
Enjoy this Spring – it looks like its shaping up to be Your Best Ever

The question has been asked over and over, can energy be dark.
Easy answer is yes, it can. The question to be asked is, “How does it become that way?”
I will try and explain. Energy in its pure form is neutral; neither good nor bad. The energy from the sun gives life to the planet and all living things. Nothing bad there right? However as in the case of the ancient Greeks, the energy from the sun was used for great destruction. Remember they used huge mirrors to focus sun rays to burn advancing ships.
The same principal applies to energy workers/practitioners. We all pull in our energy from the same source. We all drink from the same well. What our “intentions” are, what we use this energy for, is what makes the difference.
A person, who is “dark”, will pull in neutral energy, same as a person who is “light”. When the energy leaves the person who is dark, it will carry energetic signatures or qualities (representing that dark practitioner). It is “tainted”, carrying those signatures. Energy has the ability to become layered in the environment over time. If we are to believe, whether in a micro to macro scale, the notion of this universe operating on a feedback system, then we can observe how this “dark” energy can affect its environment (us included).
That energy does NOT have to remain dark however. It can be made neutral or light again. It can be “cleaned” while rebalancing itself back into the environment. It must be re-mixed with the light. As an example, a gallon of dirty water poured into five gallons of clean water, will make the dirty clean again.The same rules apply with energy.
We can feel/witness this principle expressing itself over land, houses, etc. They can become dark with the use of dark energy, but when enough light energy is put in its place it becomes diffused.
When working with energy, ALWAYS, keep your hearts, your actions, and intentions toward good will and pure of cause!!

Manifestation. We’ve read the books, practiced being positive and extensively visualized out outcomes. So why have we not achieved what we desire?
There can be several reasons. We may have manifested incorrectly. We might have aborted our own good. Or we may not have waited for the timing to be correct for the manifestation to occur. These, and several other reasons, are why we can’t seem to get what we want.
First and foremost, we cannot manifest methods. But, you say, everything is energy, and you are correct. However, many individuals find that manifesting money is extremely difficult. Why? We need to ask ourselves, “What is the end result?” If all you want is a pile of money, go for it. But money is usually the method by which you achieve (buy) other things (other energy). By working to manifest the money to do or buy something, we are putting restrictions on the Universe. We are telling It that the way we want to achieve this particular goal (for example, a new car) is via this method (money). That precludes all the other methods that the Universe can furnish us with our desire (a new car). It means we can’t win one, be given one or be fortunate enough to have one presented to us via another method.
I have found, from personal experience, that restricting the Universe in its vastness, only makes it much more difficult for me to receive what I desire. If I put no boundaries on how the desired item comes in, I leave it up to the Universe to give it to me in the fastest, most efficient manner possible.
This doesn’t mean that we can’t or shouldn’t be specific with our goals. What it does mean is that once we have a particular desire, we should allow the Universe to work its magic! We just need to get out of the way!
One of the main reasons why we abort the process of manifestation is that we are in a hurry. In our lives and culture, we want instant gratification, if not sooner! Timeframes are good to when you request the manifestation, but you need to be flexible and wait for everything to come to fruition. The Universe’s timing is perfect. Ours isn’t. We need to relax and LET GO. Instead of worrying if this is going to be done, if that won’t happen, we need to stand in secure knowledge of the outcome. This is one of the most difficult pieces of the process to manage.
Due to our being human (and who isn’t), we tend to replay prior scenarios in our minds. We focus on what didn’t happen, what is the lack, as opposed to knowing that our request has been heard and the Universe is working on it. When we can trust that we will have what we desire, we can allow the energy for the manifestation to flow and swirl around us. Then the miracles occur!
Trust in the Universe is one of the keys to the manifestation process. If you can’t or won’t trust the Universe, you’re going to have a difficult time with your manifestations. But, you say, I trust the Universe. Do you? Can you stand in the middle of a storm of emotion and Know, not in your head but in your being, in your soul, that the Universe will provide you with all you desire and more? Too many times, we say we trust, but we do it from our mind and not our soul level. Once you trust from a soul level, the rest becomes merely a process to follow.
Trusting the Universe is hard, especially when we see things going on around us that seem to indicate that our world is upside down and nothing is going as we’d like. It is during these times that we need to trust the Universe more than ever. If you can stand strong during these trying periods, you will see your dreams and desires manifest in remarkable and miraculous ways!

I have spent over 20 years reading and interpreting the Tarot cards to answer questions about romance and love, work and career, and general life path choices for men and women all over the planet. I have been working towards creating my own site, and have manifested my business, Metaphysical Matrix and Centerpoint Body Mind and Spirit, so I can continue to do the work I love– helping others find new perspectives towards their life, and the motivation to forge their personal destinies. When I am able to open someone’s eyes to a new, better reality, I am also fulfilled in my destiny. I do my best to offer encouragement towards following one’s dreams, compassion in times of great stress and, hopefully, a clearer understanding of the power each of us has to make our lives happy and fulfilling. I have been fortunate in my gift of accuracy, especially in being able to determine the timing of significant events that people inquire upon.
Over the years, I have intensely studied the cards, their history, and the thousands of interpretations that have been applied to them. I have been able to strengthen my interpretation of the Tarot cards with the knowledge of: astrology, Elements, numerology, Egyptian writings, Kabalah, Hebraic Texts, chakra energy, Spiritual Guides, and shamanism. In addition, I have a library of ancient and modern spiritual books, modern philosophical texts, and contemporary psychological references. I have meditated on the Tarot, using their teachings as a guide for my own life path and the cards have aided me in creating transformative rituals and magical works of art. The archetypes of the Tarot are mysterious, pulling long lost wisdom from the intuitive depths, and illuminating our deepest desires and hidden fears. Carl Jung understood the cards from that psychological aspect, and his writings on the subject of Tarot and using those for psychotherapy have added layers to the effectiveness of my interpretations and readings for others.
Many come to me with very simple questions, and I am able to get them the simple answers they are seeking. However, most times the solutions are more complicated, and I feel I have to stretch the Inquirer, so that they can see how their expectations may lead to disappointments. Obviously, the answers are not always what is expected by one who is inquiring, and it can be a challenge to help that person see that, though the answer is not what was expected, it is the right answer. I have had some leave a session angry, but interestingly, in response to the timing of an event I read from their cards, they have come back to me, claiming that I was accurate, even though it was not the way they wanted things to go. The spiritual and intuitive path I follow also influences my readings, intuitively drawing out the spiritual tasks that an Inquirer may not be aware of but are tasks necessary for them to complete before they can attain their desires.
My method of interpretation demands that the Inquirer be attentive to each card and its definition in their reading, and to the information I am trying to convey so that they understand their answer on material and spiritual levels. I approach each question openly, and in a non-judgmental way, and offer solutions in the same manner.
Life is a journey, and time changes the roads on which we all travel. I believe that Tarot card readings can help us map out our path to attain our goals, to navigate the crossroads and obstacles that we all come upon, and give us clear signs that will point us in the direction of our true destiny.
