Forgiveness of yourself and others

I celebrate Yom Kippur but a little different then tradition. Most who celebrate spend time in Temple or in constant prayer. Some believe that prayer is the only way for forgiveness but I think good deeds trump prayer. I feel that GOD would rather you help someone else and create good energy then sit and say a prayer over and over. There are many people throughout history that did negative things and thought by going to Temple or church and saying prayers that they would be forgiven. While they may be forgiven, which always depends on the acts committed, I feel the best way to talk to GOD and the best way to get forgiveness is by doing good deeds everyday not just on holidays.

I fast all day long from the night before on Yom Kippur. I do brush my teeth and get ready for the day. Many times in the day I reflect on my sins and what I could have done different or better. I reflect on all my faults as a person and the learned behaviors from my life experience. I reflect from the outside in. I can see what needs to be evolved and this reflection helps keeps me focused on advancing my soul to make better choices in my life. One of the things I always reflect is about thinking before I act and speak. Sometimes I may say the wrong thing at the wrong time. This is something easy when you think about it but sometimes hard in the moment. Not too many people reflect on becoming better, they just focus on asking for forgiveness to what they had already done wrong.

If I was GOD, and for a minute pretend you are as well. Would you rather someone go to a place of worship and say sorry by repeating prayers or would you rather your child go out and help another child in need. If you are not doing good things in your life for others, how do you expect to advance as a good person? When you are doing good deeds every day you are counsciously in the light of GOD so it is that much harder to do something wrong. You have to live everyday like you were in Church or Temple. Live to help your brothers and sisters in need.

One of the biggest obstacles some of us have to endure is the forgiveness of others. This type of energy can stay for a lifetime. Regardless if that person is in your life any longer, forgiveness of that person and that act is crucial to your well-being. Me personally, I forgive people before they even do anything wrong. After the act, I forgive them instantly and never hold a grudge. I may choose to not have that person in my life any longer but I let that relationship dissolve with love. Forgiveness does not mean you are a sucker, it means you are strong enough to put your energy first and that your health and mind is the most important factor.

I have had many close relationships but if that line is crossed, that is the end. I know who I am as a person. The closest people know who I am as a person. Knowing that, if my line is crossed it mean they do not respect you in such a way, and once someone does it once, most likely it will happen again. Just like a spouse hitting another spouse. Once it happens, the pattern just begun. This does not make them a bad person for crossing the line, just means the time has come to release the relationship. People are in your life for seasons, reasons and lifetimes. When their message is delivered, the time will come to move on. Sometimes that time is delayed because of attachment and sometimes it is quick.

On a personal note, I had a huge miracle this holiday. I love to fish. I always wanted to catch a Cobia fish. It is one of the best fighting fish but also one of the tastiest. I have never caught one and have been trying for 10 years now. Today I caught one, a nice size about 20 pounds. When I was bringing it in, the line brook as soon as I was lifting it up in my backyard. I was devastated. Right at that point it was high tide and the best time for fishing. Also right at that point my wife called and asked me to bring her a change of clothes that was 20 minutes away. I felt frustration for a minute then realized it is all good. I know things happen for reasons as long as you are doing the right things in life. After I dropped off the clothes, I came back home to fish.

About 15 minutes in, my line said zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, I caught a big fish. After 20 minutes of fighting the fish, I reeled in not only a 40 pound Cobia but the biggest fish I ever caught. I was so happy and immediately reflected on my frustration after the fish fish. My time delay had to happen. I was using live fish so think about it. I had to throw the line in exactly at a certain time, the fish had to swim a certain path and the Cobia had to swim in a certain area. It all worked out just as it should be. So since I fasted all day, I got to break my fast with a miracle fish. It was delicious!!!!!!!!!

So the lesson of Yom Kippur and really in life itself is to do good deeds everyday, reflect on becoming a person soul everyday, talk with GOD everyday whether in conversation or prayer and forgive those who have wronged you and all the miracles with fill your life with happiness. May be all be filled with so much love that their is no room for any type of negativity. Namaste.

Robin Williams, suicide & demons


There are always two sides to every story but there is also two sides to every event. For every event there is a logical reason and a spiritual reason for the event. For example, if you run over a nail and get a flat tire, logically the nail caused the flat. Spiritually, the reasoning is the same but different. Yes the nail caused the flat but your Angels, GOD, Buddha or whatever you believe in caused the flat. What if down the road you were to get into an accident? This event that was caused by a logic but had a spiritual conclusion. You in that particular space and time had to be delayed. Most people get upset when they have a flat because they will be late to work or the fact that they have to pay money to fix a tire. But what if it really prevented you from an accident. Now instead of getting hurt, paying a $500 insurance deductible and being without a car, you are only 15 minutes late and it costs $10. When you compare the two, one is frustrating while the other is thankful. Now lets take a look at Robin Williams and the two sides.

First let me say that he is one of the best actors ever! His ability to jump into any character is purely a gift. I loved just about all his movies and his presence will surely be missed especially by his family and friends. To have an impact in society as he did with his generosity is his saving grace. Some people have posted online with compassion while others have called him a coward. I personally use to have the coward type of view until I almost committed suicide myself at different  points in my life. Yes, I have thought about it and took steps to end it, however I had Divine intervention and I fought to live. This is another post I will write later.

Robin Williams as reported was battling alcoholism and depression for some time now. He recently went into rehab over the summer. Rehab is only as good as the person wanting to truly be helped and following all the steps to FIGHT their addictions. If you do not follow the steps everyday until you conquer the addiction then you will fall back into the same place and most likely a worst place because you did not make it the previous time. By not making it, you self doubt yourself making yourself fell worse. This is the logical side of things, now lets look at why people say “fighting demons”.

We all have guardian angels, at least 7, however some people have thousands. Depending on your life’s purpose depends on what protection and strength you need. But man and woman were giving the greatest gift, FREE WILL. With free will, your angels may not be able to protect and save you all the time. Sometimes you ALLOW the demons to come in.

When someone has an addiction, whether to alcohol, drugs, sex and many more examples, they allow the addiction to control their behaviors. If anyone knows a drug addict, they always say “you are not who you use to be”. This is true. You see when you are addiction free, you are the personalities of all your angels combined. You share their energy and you are all one making up the soul that you have. It is all the same.

There are good angels and bad angels and also demons or negative spirits. The good ones of course always try to follow GOD’s path while the other ones are attracted to the negative side. Your angels are always trying to protect and guide you to your destined path in life, that is their job. But when you are addicted to something and now your choices and behaviors revolve around the addiction, you allow your circle of protection to be open. When you are open, this allows other things to come into your circle of angels, like a negative spirit or worse a demon.

So why are your guardian angels not strong enough to keep them out? Because YOU ALLOW them in through your addiction. You invite them in unknowingly, or now, knowingly. Your angels at this point are still trying to save you and thats why you always contemplate whether to do your addiction or not. Every addict knows its wrong but the addiction FEEDS the negative spirit or spirits. When they are fed, they grow stronger because you are feeding them your energy as well. In return your addiction becomes stronger.

Just because you are a super athlete like Junior Seau or famous actor like Robin Willimas and have all the money you will ever need, addiction does not escape you. In fact, it is usually worse because of the lime light and pressure. How many times do we see famous people have addictions? Usually the first response is how can they be so stupid with all that money? Life is life regardless of money and fame. We are all equal to having addictions whether it is in your dna or not.

People contemplate suicide for many reasons, everything from breakups, addictions, depression, mental illness and much more. Me personally, I felt left alone. There were periods in my life that I felt alone in this world with no love and it seemed everyone left me. Some people can have all the material things in this world and still feel alone. Some may have a huge network of family and friends but still feel alone. It is not up to us to judge but up to us to try and help save the 38,000 people annually who commit suicide. They are not cowards, they need help. Need help to see the gift of life and what they can still do with their life. They need their life’s purpose renewed.

Many religions believe that one who commits suicide, they go to hell. Others believe that they get a worse life and are reborn while others believe that they go to Heaven regardless. Robin William did many great things for charity and children in need. Personally, I think we all have to beat our demons in our life. When we do not graduate to our life’s purpose whether it is by suicide or just simply not choosing the right paths in life, we try again. Again and again until we beat what we need to. Then we move up in levels and have different purpose whether here on earth, as an angel or whatever else is available that we have no idea or comprehension of. Either way, regardless of purpose, spread the love instead of judgement and negativity.

Show where your heart really belongs, in the grace of GOD or whatever your belief is. Show the highest form of compassion. Show your dedication to humanity and helping those beat their demons. Show the true you, the loving you, the you that you would be proud to call you. Be the bigger stronger brother and sister to all the children of GOD. Namaste to all.

Angels & addicts ÷ your soul


To fully grasp the perspective of this particular blog, please read “guardian angels”.

Addiction in a logical sense is a mental or physical dependency upon a substance, act, feeling and even a person. It could be just about anything. It is the lack of will and strength to fight the battle to the end and not to look back. Many addicts try numerous times and give up only to suppress the cycle even deeper. The longer you stay in the “addiction”, the stronger it gets. This view, while correct, puts you against you. You are trying to conquer yourself. Then when you fail to beat yourself, you only get weaker and give up even further.  You are literally beating yourself up. Imagine constantly punching yourself, there is no winner unless you stop. But the whole time you had the choice to stop but something is making you hit yourself. What is that “something” ?

Spiritually it represents something most people will never think of. From this one simple perspective, whether true or not, will definitely help someone take the battle till the end and win. There is not just one view on GOD, there are many ways to believe and think. The more we know and explore, the better choices we can make for ourselves. The choice and belief that suits our soul the best is the winner. In all perspectives of GOD, there is no loser.

First lets look how an addiction could start. You have your team of angels guiding you from birth. Their goal is for you to achieve your destined path in life and protect you. There are different angels and different strengths of angels. Some angels can not defeat “negative” things per se, they may need help. This also represents your will power, drive and strength of your determination and fight as a person. Some people are naturally stronger then others. This strength is the key factor.

Someone depressed, angry at life, just had a terrible loss, etc., these things weaken your energy and your protection from your angels. You are in essence opening yourself up along with your energy to a path of the negative. All of these feelings are negative so you are going to attract that type of energy around you. Like a wounded fish around sharks. After a negative experience, that soul wants to forget and escape their reality. They are trying to be in another place and realm to escape life because they feel anything is better then where they are at the moment. They may take a drink, use drugs, gamble, self mutilate, anything to escape this reality and view of life. But this is only a perspective they take on. They take on a view in a negative direction.

At this point the pattern will continue because something happens to keep it going. Imagine a negative “angel”, bad spirit, just a bad energy (perspective) that comes into your team of angels. This energy is now sharing space with your guardian angels. It is there because you invited it in by the addiction. You are your angels and now this negative energy also. This energy is your escape from reality. But remember, it was “invited” in and will stay with you as long as you let it. It is a house guest that never leaves.

This energy could be more then one but either way it is something negative within you. You always hear people say this about addicts “Who are you? You are not the same person!!”. This is because you are now apart of this negative energy, and who likes negative energy? This energy needs to feed and like a dog it will eat until it can not eat any more and then it will eat agin. Food does not feed the negative but energy does. It is a soul sucker and leacher. It lashes on and no one can help you but YOU. You could go to the top rehab places in the world and have the best doctors and medicine known to humanity but that can not stop your will and desire to feed the negative energy of an addict.

Lets take drugs for example, but hardcore drugs like crack and heroin. Every time you use you are feeding that energy. Every time you steal, lie and manipulate for your drug, you feed the energy. Every negative act feeds this void and it only grows with you. The more your an addict (by choices and uses), the stronger it gets. Jail does not stop an addict nor does living in the middle of no where. Only you stop yourself but how?

On the logical side of things, you are fighting yourself and your body’s dependency. On the spiritual side, you are fighting a negative energy with the help of your angels. They will not help you unless you ask them to. If you were over a friends house and they had a bad house guest, you could not ask them to leave and even if you did, the owner of the house has the right to let them stay. We are in control of our own house and soul. Until the owner asks the negative energy to leave, your team of angels can only sit and watch. They will still try to help you see the bad choices you are making. They will still try to save you from the dangers of getting your fixes. They will always help YOU, but in the end you have to decide who resides in your soul. But you will always have signs and messages around you constantly guiding you to the right path. An addict ignores these signs.

If you are a person of faith, GREAT, you are one step closer to the right path. If not a believer, find it. Find GOD, Jesus, Buddha, Allah, whoever, but find that source and you will find your true self. All of these faiths believe in angels. Ask your angels for help. Ask them to give you all the strength to overcome this bad energy and to have enough will power to make it leave your team of angels. Tell this negative energy that you no longer wish to be an addict and that they have to leave. That GOD is the true source of life and that you want to live in peace and happiness.

Now comes an act, a physical act to seal your intention and will. The bible used sacrifices and animals but I love all life even the red ants who bite me at the beach every Saturday. Decide on an act, whether it is throwing sand in the air. Maybe digging a hole and throwing your addiction in and burying that energy? Maybe write it on a piece of paper and then ripping it up or burning it. Something to signify your intention and desire to beat this energy. Voodoo uses this same approach but usually for negative energy. We use it for the good, positive, loving energy we are creating.

Both of these perspectives gives a different fight and battle. One battle is you fighting you. The other battle is you and your angels fighting to kick a negative energy out of your soul and space. In either battle or perspective, I hope and pray that you will never have to face that type of energy and if you do, know that your strength and love from GOD can easily kick out ANYTHING negativity. Have faith, LOVE yourself and know that no battle in life leaves you empty handed. Each battle brings lessons of insight. This is the insight we are meant to share with others. If we all share our soul, there will always be more love and light then negative energies. GOD Bless every soul 😉



~Start your resolutions everyday~

~Start your resolutions everyday~

This time of the year some of us reflect about changes that we would like to make starting 2013. Is it only right to make these changes and intentions during this time? Then why are some waiting to 2013 to make and start change?

Everyday is the best time to start change for the better. Why wait till January 1 to start your diet? Why not change your life style today. Life styles never have diets because you are eating right and taking care of your body. Some want happiness. Why not do something everyday that makes you happy. Why not do 5 things that make you happy? Some may want to do more good deeds. Why not go to a soup kitchen tonight?

Waiting for tomorrow brings another day. You can start today and enjoy it a day longer. We are all students of life. The best students learn everyday knowing we can’t be perfect, but we can lead by a good example. In that energy comes all the benefits of faith. If you feel you need to evolve in a certain area, then do what it takes to evolve. Find the way to make the right choices that benefit everyone. Find it now. Knowing the issue is half the answer.

Thinking the thoughts of change starts the manifestation. You send out energy with every thought. Why not have these thoughts filled with Love and intentions to make your soul a little brighter? Start shining today. Be the light that does everything right.
