Join us Thursday on Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit to learn how veterans and communities can heal and turn pain into strength and wisdom.  Recently I was listening to a news report that about 4% of Drone pilots suffer from PTSD. This seemed to surprise the newscaster since the pilots are not physically on the battlefield. It did not, however, surprise me. These pilots are still responsible for the deaths of fellow human beings. Regardless of the reasons for their actions, the fact remains that the person pulling the trigger or guiding the bomb or drone is still taking a life. They are aware that the person killed was a son or daughter, possibly a sibling or spouse, parent, friend, co-worker, relative, neighbor. Lives are changed because of their actions. Even if their actions were necessary and even if they don’t develop PTSD, the taking of a life affects a person’s mind, heart and soul. The returning warriors may even question themselves as the moral and ethical human beings who they thought they were.

Prophecies to Help You Be Prepared and to Heal the Earth

This episode of Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit is a perfect example of how we can all find the silver lining in challenging situations. Psychic Dawon shares with us, among other things, some predictions about the natural disasters that seem to be increasing with more earthquakes, tornadoes and flooding being reported almost daily. Our purpose is not to cause fear, but to create awareness and to be realistic. From that perspective, we can be prepared but even more importantly, we can choose to help prevent some of the predictions or to lessen their impact. Hope and positive action is our silver lining, and Dawon tells you exactly what you can do. You need to listen to this on-demand show and share it widely.

From Fear to Freedom By Paula Joyce

Fear puts roadblocks in front of us that keep us from doing the very things that would bring us the most joy. To let go of fear, remind yourself:

  • Your fears rarely manifest.
  • Fear creates the same bodily sensations that excitement does.
  • Irrational fear dissipates when you take the first action step.

Our logical mind tells us why we are doing something or why we shouldn’t do it. Often, those reasons sound something like: I don’t have the time, I can’t afford it, I’m not capable of it… These are rarely the truth. They are, however, concepts that are society has come to believe and that throw a net of fear around our desires.

Sometimes the voice of fear is so loud that we can’t hear the “still small voice within.” What do you really want to do that you haven’t done? If you’ve lost touch with your desires, think back to your childhood dreams, joys and gifts. What do you want? Commit to doing it and you commit to yourself.

Here are some techniques to use when fear grabs hold of you.

  • Thank the voice of fear for sharing and ask it to take a seat on the couch. Often it just wants to be heard. It’s your choice whether you act upon the fear or the joy.
  • Hold hands with the fear and let it walk beside you as you move forward with your desires. Mark Twain said: “The only way around it, is through it.”
  • Listen to the words the voice is using. “I should” is a red flag warning you to avoid getting caught in fulfilling other people’s expectations that are not in your best interest. “I want” is a green light unless your actions will cause real harm, versus imagined harm, to yourself or others.
  • Perform a ritual to banish the fear. A common one is to write your fears down, tear them up and throw them away. An alternative is to burn them and spread the ashes in your garden to symbolically fertilize your dreams.
  • For those of you who have worked with me, you can discover and dissolve your hidden fears by doing the crayoning and writing exercise. When the voice of fear gets very loud, insistent and intimidating, you’re just a step fromfreedom. Take that step and feel the joy.

Creating Positive Change By Paula Joyce

Remember Random Acts of Kindness? What happened to the craze that swept the world? It captured our hearts and minds and then vanished as quickly as it came. How do we create a society that supports and practices kindness? Currently our media seem to focus on the very opposite–murder and war. Even our politics is overrun with who said or did what terrible thing. A while ago I wrote a letter to our local newspaper’s editor asking why there wasn’t balanced reporting. The letter wasn’t printed and the reply said I was incorrect. My thought was, well maybe if you count the want ads. How can we create positive attitudes and thinking within ourselves and our children if we are bombarded by negativity? I don’t mean we should deny the injustices in the world. We need to know about the horror of a young girl being bullied to the point of suicide so it never happens again. And that’s the key. Let’s use tragedy to make the world a better place. Join us Thursday June 5th 8am Pacific Time for Paula’s new episode “Creating Positive Change” on the Voiceamerica 7th Wave Channel.

Learning to see life from a spiritual perspective can change the way we think, which changes everything. As we let go of fear, worry, regret, blame, anger, guilt, resentment, jealousy and shame, we can create the loving, joyful, prosperous, healthy life that we want and deserve.  The best or worst place to live is in our own mind. You will learn how to weed out the negativity and to be grateful and positive in word, thought and deed, resulting in your ever-increasing happiness. Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit is broadcast live every Thursday at 8 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica 7th Wave Channel.

Yes, You Are Creative By Paula Joyce

creativeThere is a creative intelligence within you that has been imprisoned since childhood, sentenced to a maximum security prison for the crime of self-expression. It’s desperate to break out from behind the four electronic doors that keep it hidden from you and the world.

The lock down began in your family when you first heard messages like: color within the lines; grass isn’t orange; people don’t have blue faces. Then there was the hysteria that ensued when you thought the living room wall would make a great canvas. Or maybe your sibling or parent was the real artist. You were supposed to hide your talent so they could shine.

The second door was locked by your teachers. In the process of helping you become a real artist, they taught you that you were no good. There was a right way to do it, and if you couldn’t or wouldn’t do it that way, you were no good. The so-called “best” pictures were put on display and held up as examples for everyone to honor. The rest of the students were the “have not’s.” They were made to feel bad about their work through benign neglect or direct criticism.

Our society shut the third door. It tells us what good art, music, writing, acting, or dancing is. There’s legitimate theater, experimental dance, fine arts versus arts and crafts. Then we have the critics who make sure we don’t color out of the lines or dance in the aisles.

Finally, we locked the last door on ourselves. Creating became a high risk venture. Fear of criticism coupled with self-doubt separated us from our own creativity. It was much safer to be the audience than the creator. Now we love going to concerts, seeing plays, attending art openings. We try desperately to feed the artist within ourselves through viewing and critiquing someone else’s art, all the while knowing that we are hiding. Like Rip Van Winkle, everyone thinks your artist is dead. In fact, it’s pacing incessantly inside a tiny cell, waiting desperately for an opportunity to escape.

Today is that day. The guards are so sure you’ll never have the courage to escape that they’re all playing cards in the coffee break room. Their music and chatter are so loud that they’ll never hear the electronic doors or your footsteps. Your job is easy. You just have to push the button to open each door and walk out into the freedom of self-expression and artistic creativity.

What has this article motivated you do? I’d love to hear from you about the steps that you are taking or questions about how to take that first or next step.
