LOVE

I keep hearing about LOVE from my Spiritual friends,and from my dis-enchanted friends (who had been madly in love).
Just what is this thing called LOVE? Why does it give some of my friends and family contentment and happiness and some of my friends and family such stress and disappointment?
Relating it to the Chakras, there is the Red/physical/all about me Chakra. The Orange, relationship, what can I do for you? How can I make YOU happy? Chakra. Opposite to the Red is the Green the peace and healing Chakra and opposite the Orange is the Blue, the devotion, communication and self expression Chakra.
When we FALL in love, we are seeing in the other person abilities and talents that we have within us but think that the other person has them.
We are really falling in love with parts of ouself that we have not been able to access. When a soft, insecure female sees strength and confidence in a male she will 'fall in love' with these abilities. He in turn may see softness and empathy in her that he needs. If she learns and develops her abilities because of her close relationship with him she could find that, because of the confidence she has developed she no longer needs it from him. This naturally causes conflict and she feels that she does not 'love' him any more.  In this type of relationship she is using the Red/physical Chakra and the Orange/need to merge Chakra.
My Spiritual friends who use the word 'love' hand out hugs and healing to as many people as they can. Their 'love' is going OUT to people instead of 'love' that is satisfying our insecurities. This is using the Green/Heart Chakra. They are also using their Blue/self-expression Chakra. Being happy as they are and knowing that they are being cared for by Angelic beings.
The English language has only one word for LOVE. Most other languages have several words indicating the different ways we can use this wonderful ability. 
It seems that LOVE that focusses on personal needs has more chance of causing distress and that LOVE that focusses on going out to others in a loving/caring and healing manner without the need for reward can help one to feel LOVE.

THE ETHERIC BODY

The Etheric Body is wrapped around us and is often seen as a white glow. It's job is to hold us together and connect us to our physical body. It is also connected to our Spirit or Soul. When drugs are used to force the Etheric Body away from us for an operation we cannot feel pain. We can only feel pain when it is wrapped around us. Many people report that after and accident they have walked on broken legs and have not felt any pain until later in the day. This is because of the wonderful skill the Etheric Body has to 'move away' when the body is in danger or might be killed. I was reminded of this skill when I was watching a DVD on the year 1012 and the many disasters leading up to it.  While watching a tsuami rushing up on to the land and over people one of my friends remarked  "well, they were probably all out of their bodies when the wave hit"!! WOW!! I knew about this ability that the body had but had forgotten. This was a wonderful thing to realise that God had given us this ability to separate from our physical self if we KNEW we were in danger of our lives. This means that in many of the terrible disasters we have been witnessing the people involved probably did not feel any pain. The same thing happens in a fire. When the smoke tells the body of danger the Etheric Body can leave so that the person does not feel pain. When young people think it is great to get 'falling down drunk' they do not realise that to do this their Etheric Body, which usually protects them, moves away. This leaves them in a position that attracts alcoholics on the lower level of the Astral. These souls who have died from their obsession with alcohol and who still crave it can 'latch on' to an unprotected body and encourage it to drink even more. When you see an alcholic walking down the street talking to himself, he is talking to these entities that have attatched themselves to him. The same thing happens when people abuse their bodies with drugs and pass out. Souls on the lower Astral who still crave drugs will be able to attatch themselves to that person, making it harder than ever to get over the habit.
Usually the Etheric Body dissolves three days after death. This is why in some cultures the body is not buried for at least three days. In some cultures the body is not even touched for three days.
If the soul has some urgent desire to stay here, as in people who have been murdered or people who do not want to leave their posessions the Etheric Body, which is exactly the same shape as the physical body will stay here. We call this a ghost. Sometimes when a person dies quickly they do not know that they are dead and the Etheric Body is in 'limbo', thinking that it still live here on earth.   It is a kindly gesture to show these lost souls to 'the light' as  this is where they should go.
Because the Etheric  Body is an outline of the physical body, if we have a limb cut off we feel that it is still there for as long as it takes that part of the Etheric Body to disintergrate.
At this time when we are witnessing disasters all over the world it can be a comfort to know that when God needs to take large groups of people he has provided us with an ability to be taken to the other side without pain.

THINGS MY MOTHER TAUGHT ME

My mother did not spend time on useless 'chit chatter'.  She had many sayings that usually fitted the current situation.  The family motto that my sister and I share with her is
THERE MUST BE A WAY!!   This was applied to all difficult situations in our lives.
The one I always feel like saying to the defeatists I constantly meet is
IF YOU THINK YOU CAN'T...YOUR ARE RIGHT!!
Her own motto that suited he so well was,
SAIL THROUGH LIFE GENTLY LIKE A SWAN, AND PEDDLE LIKE MAD UNDERNEATH!!
Because of my many interests she would often quote the Chinese saying,
HE WHO HAS OPEN MIND CAN OFTEN GET GARBAGE THROWN IN.
Another daunting one was
THAT LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL COULD JUST BE AN ONCOMING TRAIN.
She kept a plaque of the Serenity Prayer on the mantelpiece and tried always to live up to it.  Everyone who knew her would attest to this.
The little plaque was broken when I moved after she died but I have glued it together and it now sits on my work desk.

WHY WE CHANGE

We arrive in the world with a blueprint for our journey through this life in the form of our Natal Birth Astrology Chart. Then from the moment we are born Planets move and the days and years of our life create different numbers that can affect our lives. Many of my Astrological clients are surprised to learn this as they thought that what they brought into the world in the form of their date of birth would represent them throughout their lives. The constellation that the Sun was traveling through at the time of our birth gives us our Sun Sign. The Sun takes 30 years to travel through each constellation. How far it has traveled through that sign before it enters the next sign will indicate when your Birth sign begins to be influenced by the next sign. So if you were a Taurean and the degree of your Birth sign was ten degrees into Taurus you would be 20 years old when it started travelling through Gemini for the next 30 years. This will affect your personality so you could find yourself being more ‘chatty’ and outgoing than you were before. This would mean that 30 years later your Sun sign would enter Cancer and at 50 years old you would think you had become more ‘motherly’ as the Cancerian nurturing qualities began to affect you. All the other influences in your life will change as the Planets representing other aspects of you move on. The Moon is the fastest of all our influences and only stays in one sign for two to three years. No wonder our emotions and emotional attitudes change so fast. Mercury (the way we think and talk) is the most changeable as it retreats every now and then for a few months. When this happens it is called Retrograde. It is a time for looking inward and thinking things over.  Every time Mercury goes Retrograde it affects all forms of communication, letters do not arrive, phone calls get mixed up, people miss appointments, teaching (getting the message across) is difficult. Mercury is no further than 30 degrees from your Natal Sun sign. So whatever your sign Mercury will be in the same one or one either side of it. When your Mercury begins moving through the next constellation to the one it was in when you are born you will often change some of your ways of thinking. We put all this down to things that happen in our lives, and indeed they are connected with our experiences. When we are born we always have at least one guiding Angel assigned to us for life, our Doorkeeper. It is his/her job to steer us though life and push us to experience what we are here for. The planetary changes give us the opportunity to change, little by little. During our lives we have other Guides to help us to learn special things. They can show us the things we have come back for, to help us to evolve.  Throughout our lives the Planets and the Numbers move in order to give us the opportunity to learn.  It is up to us to take advantage of their help by watching for the signs and situations they present to us.
