    One of the biggest challenges in life is

    learning to release those things that no longer serve you. Bless them as they leave and embrace the new as it comes. Everything comes into your life to teach you something. When a person, situation, or thing has taught you all it can, it will be replaced with something that...

    Anyone know a thing or two about past lives

    or past life regression? I find it very interesting and want to learn more about it. I think I feel sensitive to it and want to know if it's something I can be more practiced in and what things one can do.

    Isn't That The Beauty Of Life?

    When you least expect it people come into your life. Some stay, some go, but you can't deny that if you watch and listen closely, many will have a profound impact on your life. The best are the ones who stay for the long haul and begin to understand the darkest crevices of your...

    Silent Meaning

      Each person comes into your life for a reason. Some, to stay a moment then leave. Others, to become meaningful and special to you. Finally, there is the other type who slips into your soul almost unnoticed.   Unnoticed and silent. They are the one you see...

    The title speaks for itself. I believe people come into one's life in order to push them to the next level, even if it's only a small favor, when you're down they pick you up, if you need help with the smallest task, you get assistance. Others are there to influence you either...

    it may take a long time for the story to unfold. But I do believe that some people are meant to be part of our life, that there is a reason our paths crossed. Sometimes the person is only in our life for a brief moment, but long enough to change us, to make a difference...

    Everyone that comes in your life is a lesson, a potential friend, a potential partner, a potential enemy. But, no one is there to take to simply take up space.
