Feeling Overwhelmed

Daily OM: Sometimes we may feel like there is just too much we need to do. Feeling overwhelmed may make it seem like the universe is picking on us, but the opposite is true: we are only given what we can handle. Difficult situations are opportunities to be our best selves, hone our skills and rise to the occasion.

The best place to start is to take a deep breath. As you do, remind yourself that the universe works in perfect order and therefore you can get everything done that needs to get done. As you exhale, release all the details that you have no control over. The universe with it's infinite organizing power will orchestrate the right outcome. Anytime stress begins to creep up, remember to breathe through it with these more>>>...

A Return to the Mystery

Because this incredible mystery has raised its head once more, there is a compelling to resume the Daily Merlin's on A Light In The Darkness. This will be an occasional theme on these pages, just to assess the where, what, how and why of the mystery in its current phase.

Using a recent new addition, 'The Arthurian Tarot' ... 

Firstly, the question 'Is Madeleine still alive?' 


Spear 3 answers with 'established strength and intuitive understanding gives and expansive outlook';
Spear 7 answers with 'courageous ability and defence of strongly held beliefs';
Stone 10 answers with 'inheritance, wealth, ancestry and enduring prosperity';
Sword Hallow answers with 'the dispelling of illusions, love of truth & justice, and light in dark places';
Grail Queen answers with 'she impacts the gifts of love to all who encounter her'

 A confusing bunch of images to perfectly illustrate an apparently very confusing situation. The intuitive answer to the question is 'yes, MM is still very much alive'. It still appears that someone is gaining financially by having M in their possession. Their situation is very strong and unlikely to change in the near future. They have her, and are using her in some way to gain wealth. The Grail Queen impresses the meaning of the personality of MM at this time. M is probably unaware she has been abducted, and that there is a major search for her. Naively she lives and is ignorant of her previous life.

Choosing True Connections

Daily Om: We are often lured by the promise of new technologies to make our lives easier and help connect us to others. While they do so in many ways, they also present each of us with opportunities to make new choices about how we spend our time and invest our energy. Most gadgets are generally meant to improve the quality of our lives, but it is when we spend too much time with them that they actually do the opposite. By always using our portable emailers, cell phones, video games, and surfing the Internet, we actually become less connected and more distracted. By becoming aware of these tendencies, we harness the power to overcome them and make better choices for ourselves and our families.

Once we decide to consciously put our gadgets to work for us, we become masters of our time. We can give our full attention to whatever we are doing and not let phone conversations and other distractions take the place of human contact. Each of us has the ability to consciously choose to be more present in our lives more>>>...

Fighting Against Our Gifts

Daily OM: As human beings we often have a tendency to fight against using our natural gifts. Many stories of success start with an individual who is ignoring the call of his or her inborn abilities. There are many possible reasons for this resistance, from fear that the calling will be too difficult to a disbelief in the very work one is being asked to do. We may feel too small, too distracted by other people's ideas about what we should do, or too uninformed. Whatever the case, the resistance to actualizing ourselves has very concrete consequences, and many of us have been called out of hiding by an illness or a twist of fate that unequivocally dismantled our resistance. In other the words, the universe knocks, and if we don't answer it knocks louder.

For example, if you are meant to be a psychic or a medium, and you aren't using that gift, you may get headaches. If you are meant to be a healer and are trying to be a lawyer, you may have trouble getting or keeping a more>>>...

Clear Your Home, Clear Your Life

Daily OM: Here's the thing about clearing. It is not about the "doing" at all.

It's not about the issue or your desired outcome. It's not about what you observe as a problem, or the solution.

It's not about the mismatched socks, the mountains of paper and store catalogues teetering your desk, or the to-do tasks that never get done.

It's not about the juggling of a million things all at once, the fact that you're not getting enough sleep, or have zero time for your self.

It's not about your family that doesn't pitch in to help out, your crazy boss, or your neighbor's dog that barks all night ...

It's not about fixing something, managing, getting rid of...

Clearing in this program is not about any of those more>>>...

Gang Stalking: Directed Energy Weapon Mind Control Technology

Waking Times: Not satisfied with controlling the masses through guns, taxes, mass media brainwashing and by dumbing down… the government is using its agencies such as the CIA or DARPA as cover sources for secret energy weapon mind control technology.

Those likely to be victimized by the technology have a number of traits. Are you?

*Someone having high integrity, acting with conscience..?
*Having alternative views..?
*An awakened activist, seeing right through and exposing governmental corruption..?
*Seeing things from a higher perspective..?

-Having these qualities, you could be perceived by your government as a threat to the advancement of their New World Order agenda. Consequently, you could be victimized through becoming one of the government’s targeted individuals for mind control. Without giving your consent or even knowing that you’re being targeted and manipulated, energy weapon mind control technology could be used to taint, discredit, impoverish, silence, subjugate or even kill more>>>...

Starting Your Day Well

Daily OM: The choices you make upon waking can have a profound impact on your day. If, still drowsy, you hit the ground running, rushing to prepare yourself to face your worldly obligations, you will likely feel fatigued and overwhelmed for most of your day. A leisurely and relaxing morning, on the other hand, can energize and excite you, as well as give you the courage to meet the challenges waiting for you. By beginning your day in a focused and centered fashion, you make it your own. You set the tone of your expectations and choose the mood you will use to respond to your circumstances. A gentle, reflective, and thoughtful morning will prepare you to create a gentle, conscious, and thoughtful day.

The simplest way to eliminate the rush from your morning routine is to rise earlier. Getting children into routines and getting themselves ready as much as possible will also give you more more>>>...

Shocking study reveals your doctor is WRONG 88% of the time… second opinions rarely agree with your first diagnosis

Natural News: According to a controversial study from Johns Hopkins University, medical errors, including misdiagnosis, are the third-leading cause of death in American hospitals. ProPublica, however, noted that this number might be higher since doctors don’t list medical errors on the death certificate, so the actual number of fatalities might be inaccurate.

With thousands of diseases, some with similar symptoms, it is not always easy to get a straightforward diagnosis from the first doctor’s visit, hence why a second opinion is so crucial to one’s health and survival. If we can learn anything from the Mayo Clinic’s study, then it is the fact that medical practices and diagnosis should be a more collaborative process. Doctors and other health care providers should work more closely together to make sure patients get the right diagnosis and proper treatment as fast as more>>>...

A Call to Action

Light of Truth Oracle
Daily Om: Each of us, whether we realize it or not, moves through life in the company of beings whose task is to watch over us. These ancestors, and  guardians designated to serve as protectors and guides take pleasure in their roles yet cannot assist us without first being asked. Since the origins of our sacred sentinels differ, we may choose whom we call upon for help based on the situation at hand. However, in certain circumstances, particularly those in which time is of the essence or there is the potential for harm, we may feel the need to surround ourselves with our entire complement of benevolent, watchful guardians at a moment's notice. To do so, a great shortcut is to create and assemble a light team--a group of spirit helpers who will come to our aid when we utter a simple word or phrase.

The creation of a light team begins with the dedication of the words that will serve as a shortcut in your time of distress, signaling to your sentinels that you are requesting their more>>>...

Brexit fish wars: Denmark claims ‘ancient rights’ in British waters

As Britain attempts to assert itself over territorial waters, the Danes look set to invoke what they say are fishing rights dating back centuries.
Since the UK proclaimed it would take back control – including of its waters – the Danish government has delved into archives and records to build a case to keep fishing.

Their argument could be put to The Hague’s International Court of Justice if fishing restrictions harden as the UK leaves the EU.

Denmark currently fishes for a number of species such as cod, mackerel and herring in shared waters.
Officials say 40 percent of Denmark’s annual catch comes from within the 200-mile (320km) exclusion zone around Britain.Some fear that this area will be redrawn after Brexit.
This appears especially problematic given some Danish coastal towns are economically dependent on fishing in British waters.

If brought, the case could be replicated by a number of other EU nations which fish within the more>>>...

Getting Back to What You Love

Daily OM: There are times in life when we are committed to pursuing our passions. Every molecule in our body is focused on doing what we love. At other times, necessity and responsibility dictate that we put our dreams aside and do what needs to be done. It is during these moments that we may choose to forget what it is that we love to do. There are many other reasons for why we may leave our passions behind. A hobby may lose its appeal once we've realize it will never turn into our dream job. Someone important to us may keep telling us that our passions are childish and unsuitable – until we finally believe them.

Forgetting about what you love to do can be a form of self-sabotage. If you can forget about your dreams, then you never have to risk failure. But just because we've decided to ignore our passions doesn't mean they no longer more>>>...

Scientists shocked to discover the human body is full of “mini brains” that function without using the Central Nervous System

Natural News: The human body’s peripheral nervous system may have the capacity to interpret its environment and regulate pain, a recent animal study revealed. A team of researchers at the University of Leeds and the Hebei Medical University in China examined ganglia cells in mice and rats for five years and found that nerve cells in the ganglia, a collection of nodules in the peripheral nervous system, can exchange information with one another using a signaling molecule called gamma-Aminobutyric acid. This process was previously believed to be restricted in the central nervous system. The researchers also found that when exposed to pain stimuli, ganglia cells appeared to communicate with each other and regulate signals that were being sent to the central nervous more>>>...

Importance Of Forgiveness

Daily OM: When someone has hurt us, consciously or unconsciously, one of the most difficult things we have to face in resolving the situation is the act of forgiveness. Sometimes it feels like it's easier not to forgive and that the answer is to simply cut the person in question out of our lives. In some cases, ending the relationship may be the right thing to do, but even in that case, we will only be free if we have truly forgiven. If we harbor bitterness in our hearts against anyone, we only hurt ourselves because we are the ones harboring the bitterness. Choosing to forgive is choosing to alleviate ourselves of that burden, choosing to be free of the past, and choosing not to perceive ourselves as victims.

One of the reasons that forgiveness can be so challenging is that we feel we are condoning the actions of the person who caused our suffering, but this is a misunderstanding of what is more>>>...

Reflecting the True Self

Copyright Matthew James
A common theme which has been discussed with clients recently is the startling fact that most of us our living a life of deception and untrue. So many of us are in relationships that are false and meaningless. Even though we are with the right partner, we are not getting the correct nourishment from the relationships we find ourselves in.

Think about it, it is true.

If you are not being true to your self or expressing your true self then every relationship you find yourself in reflects the false self you are being. If you are not true in your relationship to yourself, then every other relationship will reflect this deception. If you are deceiving the outside world by not being your true self, then every resultant interaction will reflect back to you that deception.

That is why most of your relationships with your partner, your family, your work colleagues, whoever you interact with, will be a deception. Simply because in all of those relationships, they will interact with you as a direct response to how you react to them. If you are not being your true self then you are denying them the chance to be their true self with you.

Think about it. It is time to acknowledge your own true self. Time to love your true self. Time to be your true self. And time to let your true self reveal how people are meant to be true to you. Some relationships may turn out for the worse, as it encourages you and others to express the negative emotions to each other. So be it, that is how the relationship is, at least it will be true and not a deception. Other relationships, however, will be permitted to become what they are meant to be ...

It is not easy to be the true self, our society is not geared up for that type of person. But once you become your true self, and express your true self, your life will evolve to one of the true reflection and suddenly you find your place in the world - Matthew James

Choosing Loving Care

Daily OM: Our bodies are like living temples, and deserve all the love and care we can give them. Amazingly flexible and strong, they allow us to experience the world. If we notice that we're not feeling our best, that we've put on extra weight, or that our favorite clothes don't fit, we can make the choice to be good to ourselves in a new way today.

There are times we become conscious of a deeper hunger that will not be satisfied physically. We can make a new, healthier choice for ourselves in any moment, regardless of the hour, day, week or more>>>...

Defining Spirit Awareness

SPIRIT AWARENESS is all about remembering about our true selves, our true potential and our true nature. We are not really souls trapped in a human body doomed to failure in a selfish world. We are so much more. We have been made to forget our spiritual ancestry, our spiritual part and the real reasons for existence.
Rediscovering ourselves starts right now. By exploring the hidden depths of our psyche we get to catch a glimpse of our true nature. Our true nature exists outside of this five sensory reality. By activating those senses which are preternatural to us, that are active outside of this limited reality, we can tap into those other parts of ourselves. We do this by entering what is known as an altered state of reality. Continued use of the extra sensory perception, and by comparing your state of mind when using those senses, with how you think within the limited five sense world, will give you an idea of the altered state of consciousness you enter when you use these extra senses. It’s as simple as that!
It takes practice, but it is possible to realise you exist in more than one state of reality simultaneously. Sounds scary, difficult … it is not. It is simple child’s play to reach that point … and that is what must be done to reach this realisation … PLAY with your ESP. We all have ESP and SPIRIT AWARENESS. It’s time to remember that fact.

How to stay SANE in an INSANE world (and why YOU are important for the rebuilding of human society)

Natural News: For those of us who are awake, aware and conscious, the world looks increasingly insane… perhaps even hopeless. The emotional whiplash of political elections, outbreaks of war, government lies and cultural insanity can take a real toll on a person’s sense of hope for our world, and far too many goodhearted, sensitive people are right now being driven to a sense of despair.

In fact, the truly insane people are those who remain oblivious to what’s happening in our world. Much of the world population today has retreated to living inside delusional mental constructs rooted in popular social conformity rather than physical or economic reality. Those people, by the way, won’t stand much of a chance of surviving once things really start to unravel. Natural selection sooner or later prunes delusional organisms from the Tree of more>>>...

What is the best strategy for attaining empathy?

S.O.T.T: According to a new study, we overestimate how well we can read emotions in other people's faces.

People often assume that a person's face will betray their true emotions—even when that person is trying to hide them. As we go about our days, we watch other people's facial expressions and mannerisms, looking for signs of stress, sadness, and happiness in our coworkers and our loved ones.

But if we want to understand the mind of another person, is that the best way?

Not always, according to a recent study. It turns out people tend to overestimate their ability to read other people's emotions from their facial expressions—which means that we may be missing out on opportunities for understanding and connection.

The study, published in the journal Psychological Science, compared observing facial expressions with a second perspective-taking strategy: putting ourselves in a similar situation, or "taking a walk in someone else's shoes." It's the first study to examine how effective people think these different methods are with how effective they actually more>>>...

Enlightenment At Home

Light of Truth Oracle copyright Matthew James
Daily OM: Many spiritual seekers feel called to far-flung places across the globe in the interest of pursuing the path of their enlightenment. This may indeed be the right course of action for certain people, but it is by no means necessary to attaining an enlightened consciousness. Enlightenment can take root anywhere on earth, as long as the seeker is an open and ready vessel for higher consciousness. All we need is a powerful intention, and a willingness to do the work necessary to moving forward on our path.

In terms of spiritual practice, at this moment, there are more tools available to more people than at any other time in history. We have access to so much wisdom through the vehicles of books, magazines, the Internet, television, and film more>>>....

'The Future Of Stonehenge'

Another disturbing image is illustrated here. I call this 'The Future Of Stonehenge'. It depicts Stonehenge being under water. The suggestion is of the Salisbury Plain of England being claimed by the sea. This prophetic image first appeared in my mind when I was 7 or 8. I've added the meteorite like fire in the sky, as I don't understand what I saw. It was a flash of light across the sky in my vision. 

For this vision to be a future reality the United Kingdom would have undergone a major earth change with most of the South West of England being overtaken by the sea. A scary thought. But this is an image which has stuck with me for most of my life.
