I believe that all human beings have extrasensory, intuitive or psychic abilities. Though this ability will vary from person to person. For example, we can all draw; But there is a big difference between being able to draw stick people, to having the skill to create an accurate portrait of someone! Psychic ability works in the same way.
But it can be enhanced. Just as someone can be taught to draw better, so can individuals learn to develop their psychic senses to a higher degree.

It is easy to become overwhelmed by negativity these days. Natural disasters, global wars and a sinking economy not only envelop the news around the world, but also have a direct effect on our daily lives.
Family, friends, jobs, and home life are seriously afflicted with the bombardment of depressing, frustrating happenings every day. It’s all too easy to fall into the trap of actually attracting more negativity.

We all lead such busy and stressful lives. Almost every day we come into contact with people who ‘push our buttons’. Day to day events or situations can also bring up anger, fear, resentment and frustration. Even members of our family can cause all sorts of emotions to bubble and brew.
Many of us were taught we shouldn’t show anger or that it was wrong to fight back. Instead we were told platitudes like ‘Two wrongs don’t make a right’ or ‘It is better to turn the other cheek’. Although there is some truth to these statements, this doesn’t help us on an energetic or physical level, as we squash down our emotions, smother those feelings and try to pretend we are unaffected by what is going on around us.

How many times have you heard the saying, ‘ don’t let your heart rule your head’? A lot of people today think that it is better to make decisions using your head. Some people don’t understand intuition, or gut feeling, and believe that the mind is superior to the heart. It is true that the mind does have a lot of power over our lives; however, the heart can be just as powerful.
If you are a Christian, you will be familiar with the Bible and it’s message that love is one of the most important things in life. It teaches us to treat others as we wish to be treated, to love one another and to forgive those who have wronged us. All of these things relate to our hearts, not our minds. Our minds may help us to navigate through life, but our hearts are the ones in control. When you make a decision, do you do it because it will help you to think better or to improve your intelligence? Not usually, I would suspect. Most people make decisions because they want to feel happier and our hearts know what really makes us happy.
Some people argue that the heart and the soul are either one and the same, or are connected in some way. Others believe the soul lies somewhere in the brain. As we are spiritual beings living in a physical body, we can argue that the heart and the brain are both physical organs that have nothing to do with our spirituality, as we won’t need our bodies when we go to the Spirit World; however, as the soul is pure energy that lives on after death, then we can argue that the soul is a loving energy that resonates with the heart.

When you decide to further develop your spirituality, it is good to keep a daily journal. There are many things you can write in this journal; however, the main thing is that you update it, at least once, each day.
When you write down your daily reflections, it is probably best to do this before you go to bed; this is because you can give yourself some quiet time to think about the things that happened during the day and record them in your journal. You don’t need to write down every little detail, such as what you had for breakfast. The idea is to really think about why things happened and how they made you feel.
Some professions encourage employees to keep a reflective diary, so that they can learn from their mistakes and do more of what works. When you write down your daily reflections, it allows you to think about why you’ve made mistakes and how you can improve things in the future. Your journal is also a permanent record of things that are happening in your life, so you can see any patterns. We often repeat the same patterns in our lives when we have a lesson to learn. If you notice that you keep spending all your money a week after getting paid, you can use your journal to reflect on why this keeps happening. What lesson do you need to learn from this? How can you do things differently.

Life often presents us with personal and professional challenges, particularly within our personal relationships, professional and working lives. It is said, that the true test of a persons character comes, when faced with adversity in all its many different forms; And that it is those of us who manage to stand strong and steadfast, not running away from what is difficult that are the strongest and most successful of all.
But, is staying in a situation come what may, always the right thing to do? Can there be instances, where the most sensible course of action would be to walk away? Take the example of the business man who has done everything in his power to make a success of his company. Re-mortgaged his home and taken on too many expensive loans. There comes a point when an individual has to accept that in spite of their best efforts, they are not going to be able to save their business. But find it very difficult to make the decision to cut their losses and start afresh. There can be many reasons for this. Loss of prestige, fear of looking a failure to family and friends, or simply that they are unable to face up to the reality of the situation. If only they could see that it takes more courage and strength of character to start again, then it does to hang on to something long after it has ceased to be viable.
