Forgiveness: Your Ultimate Superpower

Forgiveness: Your Ultimate Superpower

Angels, Spirituality
By Kim Hutchinson You have a superpower. No, it isn’t flight or invisibility (I’m guessing); it is your ability to forgive. Not glamorous enough for you? Trust me; there is no more powerful gift than forgiveness. It is your ticket to happiness, freedom, joy, robust health, wealth and wisdom. How can something so seemingly innocuous be so powerful? It’s simple, really. True forgiveness restores your innocence and faith, and allows you to fully enjoy life like a child...with the pleasure, laughter and play. Karma Dissolved What a person does or says is his karma; how you respond is your karma. If you are unable or unwilling to forgive, then you co-create karma that will need to be resolved at some point in your soul’s journey. Forgiveness cuts your negative ties…

Compassion is Still the Fashion

Compassion is Still the Fashion

Personal Development, Spirituality
By Steve Clayton Picking up where we left off last month, compassion for ourselves and for others is vitally important. Learning to overlook and forgive faults rather than judging them is important for our mental and emotional health. True Love, (God’s Love if this makes you feel better) does not judge. True Love is unconditional. I have heard it said that the only time we are loved like this is when we are born and are held in our Mother’s arms for the first time.

Honestly, I am not trying to be depressing on this beautiful fall day. Here…

This may sound trite, tired or tedious, but I cannot stress the importance of learning to love one’s self. We live in a world where we are constantly bombarded with judgments; how we look, where we live, what type of job we have, what kind of car we drive. The list of judgments is endless and, in the vast majority of cases, we are left feeling that we don’t quite measure up, that we are somehow lacking. More often than not we are made to feel that the reason we do not measure up is due to something wrong…

Healing Others Begins With Yourself

Healing Others Begins With Yourself

Healing
By Kim Hutchinson When we experience emotional pain, we often place blame on external factors, and on other people; however, if we were completely honest with ourselves, we would see that our own thoughts, feelings, and expectations, influence the manner in which we relate to others. As uncomfortable as that realization may be initially, it is also liberating. It puts us squarely in the driver’s seat, and diminishes our feelings of helplessness and victim-consciousness. But we can go farther than simply accepting our part of the blame. In fact, why blame anyone at all? Rather that expending negative energy, we should try to create a sense of well-being, balance, and happiness in not only our life but in the lives of those around us. Instead of finger-pointing, we would be…
