5 Ways to Heal Yourself Spiritually

Wise people often say that this world leaves no one untouched. Right from the moment you are born to the moment you die, you go through countless experiences in life. Some of these are good, some of these are neutral, and some of these are heart-breaking.

Naturally, we all get hurt and experience a lot of pain in our journeys. And we try to heal from all of this in a myriad of ways. One of these ways that most people are beginning to turn to these days is spiritual healing. This type of healing happens when you experience something greater than yourself and understand what life is all about. As such, it paves the way for greater peace, happiness, and fulfillment in our lives.

But how do you heal yourself spiritually? Well, there are many ways you can do so. Below, we are going to look at five of the most popular ones.

1) Meditation

Meditation is one of the most ancient spiritual practices in the world. It also happens to be one of the most powerful ones. When you meditate regularly, you naturally learn to connect with your inner self. This gives you great insights into your thoughts, emotions, values, and feelings. It also helps you understand what is bothering you and why. You’re able to get to the root of things and address them once and for all. Meditation also trains you to anchor your attention in the present moment. Suffice it to say, this practice is a great way to heal yourself spiritually.

2) Tarot Reading

Tarot reading is another spiritual tool that can help you gain insights into your thoughts and emotions. It can also help you better understand the situation you are in right now and ways you can get out of it. Not only that, tarot reading can make a murky future a lot clearer and provide a sense of direction in your life. It can even help you understand who you are as an individual. This helps you release any negative energy or past trauma that may be holding you back.

3) Gratitude

A lot of spiritual practitioners will tell you that the best way to live is with an attitude of gratitude. This is because gratitude is a great way to shift your attention from what you don’t have to what you have. This might seem like a trivial thing but it is one of the best ways to live a happier and more content life. It takes away the immense pressure you might feel in the modern world with all of its complexities. And it naturally gives you a more positive outlook on life and helps you enjoy the little things that life has to offer.

4) Yoga

Yoga is perhaps as old as meditation. And contrary to what many may believe, it is not only about physical movement. In the spiritual world, yoga means union. It is the profound experience of feeling a sense of oneness with something greater than yourself. When you experience this oneness, you are bound to move away from all the pain in your life and into a state of bliss and happiness.

5) Service

Spiritual gurus often say that human beings are at their best in a state of giving. There is immense wisdom in these words if you think about it. When you serve others selflessly, you feel a warm and fuzzy sensation in your heart. That is because it helps you connect with other people on a higher level. This connection transcends the physical and ventures into the realm of the spiritual. It gives you a taste of what the true nature of reality is. It also helps you realize that you are not alone in this journey. There are countless other beings all playing out their story. This brings in a sense of comfort and peace.

Reiki – How This Energy Healing System Can Help You

Reiki is a holistic system for balancing, healing, and harmonizing all aspects of the person-body, mind, emotions, and spirit-encouraging deep relaxation and the release of stress and tension, and promoting awareness and spiritual growth. 

In the past decade or so, spiritual practices and healing techniques have gone mainstream. If you think about it, that’s not surprising at all. As people constantly look for natural ways to deal with the increasing pressures and complexities of modern-day lives, they inevitably find their way to the spiritual world.

Take, for instance, Reiki healing. This ancient energy healing system dates back thousands of years. Its knowledge was eventually lost to time, only to be rediscovered in Japan in the late 19th century. Since then, it has spread across the globe, changing millions of lives for the better.

Reiki And Its Benefits

Reiki is based on the idea that there is a fundamental life force energy that permeates the entire universe. In fact, it is said to be the force that animates all living beings. The ancients figured out that this energy can be channeled to promote healing and balance in the body. Not only that but it can also be used to make progress on one’s spiritual path. This knowledge was passed down through the generations and today, millions of people reap its benefits.

Reiki practitioners use a variety of techniques to channel this energy, including hand positions, visualization, and meditation. The recipient of the treatment remains fully clothed and typically lies down or sits comfortably during the session. In order to understand how Reiki can help you, it’s important to learn about its benefits.

1) It Brings Balance And Harmony

Reiki healing can bring the different dimensions of your being into balance and make them work in harmony. Essentially, this means that your body, mind, emotions, and life force energy achieve a certain alignment, which helps you live a happier and more balanced life. This particular benefit shows up in almost all aspects of your life such as health, career, relationships, well-being, and so on.

2) It Helps You Relax

This is one of the first things people experience during or after a Reiki healing session. Since Reiki removes energy blockages and knots from the body, your fundamental life force energy is able to flow undeterred. When that happens, you experience a deep state of relaxation. In fact, this can also help a person deal with mental health issues like stress, anxiety, depression, etc.

3) It Complements Your Immune System

Reiki complements your immune system by getting rid of the toxins that might be stuck in your physical or energy body. This is why some people cough or even cry during Reiki healing sessions. Also, Reiki allows your body to let go and releases it from being in a fight or flight mode all the time. This promotes faster healing and strengthening of the immune system.

4) It Hastens Your Body’s Natural Healing Ability

One of the most important features of life force energy is that it knows the fastest and best way to heal any ailment in your body and mind. However, this process is often hampered due to blockages, negative energies, and some types of disorders. Reiki can remove these blockages and allow your life force energy to function at its best. This supercharges your healing ability and you’re able to get rid of your ailments much more quickly.

5) It Promotes Deeper Sleep

In today’s world, where every other person seems to be sleep-deprived, this benefit is really relevant. Reiki can bring a sense of ease into your system by releasing suppressed emotions and thoughts. It also allows your various systems to relax and let go of stale energy. This helps you feel a lot lighter and deep sleep becomes a natural byproduct.

With all the stories and events around, maybe it’s time to listen “When God Whispers”

When God Whispers Your Name, based on best-selling author – MAX LUCADO

Just a day after a series of mass shootings again all over cable news. Just as it was a time for celebration for Lunar New Year, the air waves opens up again on this tragic chaos not to mention with all the politics that goes with it.

So on a time like last night, I pulled one of my favorite authors books, “When God Whispers” by Max Lucado and open the book marker I had left. Page 2 on his acknowledgement says, ” And so may I introduce you into this book? It’s a book of hope. A book whose sole aim is to encourage.”

It continuous in saying am anxious, bad news outpaces the good. Problems outnumbers solutions. And we are concerned. He ends by saying that God knows my name. Many chapters auditioned for this book, but not all were selected. So as we read Max’s books and interpret them as laymen, religious or even poet’s, he creates that inspiration that we need through his writings.

In this book we discover the path towards hope and God’s care in everyday life stories and examples. Listen closely as we read the pages, what God may whisper that may erase doubts, pain, sorrow, despair and even fear. Yet the author do reference some of the Old and New Testament so we can connect better in understanding the numerous ways God is there for us. Max Lucado is a pastor, speaker, and bestselling author who, in his own words. Max has a way of writing it is a mixture of lesson and life all at once for us the readers.

Chapter 23, The God Who Fights For You starts, “Here is a big question. What is God doing when you are in a bind? When the lifeboat springs a leak? When the rip cord snaps? When the last penny is gone before the last bill is paid? When the last hope left on the last train? What is God doing? I know what we are doing. Nibbling on nails like corn on the cob.

In the Heights: Finding Home

The eagerly awaited follow-up to the #1 New York Times bestseller Hamilton: The Revolution, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s new book gives readers an extraordinary inside look at In the Heights, his breakout Broadway debut, written with Quiara Alegría Hudes, soon to be a Hollywood blockbuster.

In 2008, In the Heights, a new musical from up-and-coming young artists, electrified Broadway. The show’s vibrant mix of Latin music and hip-hop captured life in Washington Heights, the Latino neighborhood in upper Manhattan. It won four Tony Awards and became an international hit, delighting audiences around the world. For the film version, director Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians) brought the story home, filming its spectacular dance numbers on location in Washington Heights. That’s where Usnavi, Nina, and their neighbors chase their dreams and ask a universal question: Where do I belong?
In the Heights: Finding Home reunites Miranda with Jeremy McCarter, co-author of Hamilton: The Revolution, and Quiara Alegría Hudes, the Pulitzer Prize–winning librettist of the Broadway musical and screenwriter of the film. They do more than trace the making of an unlikely Broadway smash and a major motion picture: They give readers an intimate look at the decades-long creative life of In the Heights.
Like Hamilton: The Revolution, the book offers untold stories, perceptive essays, and the lyrics to Miranda’s songs—complete with his funny, heartfelt annotations. It also features newly commissioned portraits and never-before-seen photos from backstage, the movie set, and productions around the world.
This is the story of characters who search for a home—and the artists who created one.

The Hoax, Lies, Realities and RAGE

Bob Woodward’s new book, Rage, is an unprecedented and intimate tour de force of new reporting on the Trump presidency facing a global pandemic, economic disaster and racial unrest.


Woodward, the #1 international bestselling author of Fear: Trump in the White House, has uncovered the precise moment the president was warned that the Covid-19 epidemic would be the biggest national security threat to his presidency. In dramatic detail, Woodward takes readers into the Oval Office as Trump’s head pops up when he is told in January 2020 that the pandemic could reach the scale of the 1918 Spanish Flu that killed 675,000 Americans.

In 17 on-the-record interviews with Woodward over seven volatile months—an utterly vivid window into Trump’s mind—the president provides a self-portrait that is part denial and part combative interchange mixed with surprising moments of doubt as he glimpses the perils in the presidency and what he calls the “dynamite behind every door.”

At key decision points, Rage shows how Trump’s responses to the crises of 2020 were rooted in the instincts, habits and style he developed during his first three years as president.

Revisiting the earliest days of the Trump presidency, Rage reveals how Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats struggled to keep the country safe as the president dismantled any semblance of collegial national security decision making.

Rage draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand witnesses as well as participants’ notes, emails, diaries, calendars and confidential documents.

Woodward obtained 25 never-seen personal letters exchanged between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who describes the bond between the two leaders as out of a “fantasy film.”

Trump insists to Woodward he will triumph over Covid-19 and the economic calamity. “Don’t worry about it, Bob. Okay?” Trump told the author in July. “Don’t worry about it. We’ll get to do another book. You’ll find I was right.”


“Woodward has established himself as the best reporter of our time. He may be the best reporter of all time.” —Bob Schieffer, CBS News (2004)

In listing the all-time 100 best nonfiction books, Time magazine called All the President’s Men, the 1974 book by Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward, “Perhaps the most influential piece of journalism in history.”

“He has an extraordinary ability to get otherwise responsible adults to spill [their] guts to him . . . his ability to get people to talk about stuff they shouldn’t be talking about is just extraordinary and may be unique.” —Robert Gates, former director of the CIA and Secretary of Defense (2014)

“[Fear] is a remarkable feat of reporting. . . . There’s nothing comparable in American journalism, except maybe Woodward’s The Final Days (1976), co-written with Carl Bernstein, about the downfall of Richard Nixon.” —George Packer, The New Yorker (2018)

About the Author

Bob Woodward is an associate editor at The Washington Post where he has worked for 49 years and reported on every American president from Nixon to Trump. He has shared in two Pulitzer Prizes, first for the Post’s coverage of the Watergate scandal with Carl Bernstein, and second 20 years later as the lead Post reporter for coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Woodward recalled how much of the most important Post reporting on Watergate was published in September and October 1972. Nixon promptly went out and got re-elected, claiming victory in 49 of the 50 states.

As for how America will fare on and after Nov. 3, Woodward knows it will be less clear-cut.

Having allowed Trump to defame and disqualify himself, Woodward concludes that he is the wrong man for the job of president; I’d add that someone so thoughtless, so unfeeling and so orange-tinted hardly qualifies for membership of the human race. And come to think of it, my opening premise is an insult to the brave, fond, ever-faithful canine species.

At War with Covid-19 – Saluting the Health Care Soldiers

Deadliest Enemy
In today’s world, it’s easier than ever to move people, animals, and materials around the planet, but the same advances that make modern infrastructure so efficient have made epidemics and even pandemics nearly inevitable. And as outbreaks of COVID-19, Ebola, MERS, and Zika have demonstrated, we are woefully underprepared to deal with the fallout. So what can — and must — we do in order to protect ourselves from mankind’s deadliest enemy?
As COVID-19 sweeps across the globe, doctors and other healthcare workers are witnessing limited availability of personal protective equipment (PPE), particularly appropriate masks, and being confronted by difficult situations that pit their desire to remain safe against their duty to help patients.
In this book, A world-leading epidemiologist shares his stories from the front lines of our war on infectious diseases and explains how to prepare for epidemics that can challenge world order.
It is very disheartening reading this book and living with today;s reality on Covid-19, that part of the stemming problem now is we can protect the healthcare soldiers in the front line.
With the shortage of appropriate masks, healthcare workers have had to come up some work-arounds, including buying their own masks (when they can find them) from hardware stores. Guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on strategies to optimize the supply of facemasks even includes a recommendation to consider using scarves or bandanas as a last resort. “However, homemade masks are not considered PPE, since their capability to protect healthcare personnel is unknown,” the CDC states. “Caution should be exercised when considering this option. Homemade masks should ideally be used in combination with a face shield that covers the entire front (that extends to the chin or below) and sides of the face.”
We salute our soldiers in the front lines.
The sacrifice healthcare workers are being asked to make during this chaotic and dangerous time, often in the absence of appropriate protective gear. Safety for those on the front lines of the pandemic translates into benefits for society at large.
May God Bless these soldiers and their families.

The War Before The War

How often do we hear it said that history repeats itself? And yet, we continue to make the same mistakes over and over. Or we allow our past mistakes to still effect our presence. Slavery, segregation, unequal rights, all have a negative impact on our society today. So. How did we get here?

The War Before The War, written by Andrew Delblanco follows the narrative of America’s biggest smear in history; slavery and the continued fight to keep slave states. With two parallel viewpoints to consider this epidemic throughout US history, the author delves into both the moral compromises and injustices made by our nation in a country that was divided in its belief of slavery and the direct outcome of slavery in America (i.e. the Compromise of 1850, FSA, etc.).

The Compromise of 1850 was apart of a package of five bills passed by Congress in 1850 that attempted to defuse tension between slave states and free states regarding certain territories acquired during the Mexican-American War. During this settlement with the territories, the Fugitive Slave Law was created. This law created a way for slave owners to gain back their escaped slaves. It required the return of slaves to their owners, even if they made it to a free state or territory at the dime of the federal government.

Delblanco takes this all a step further than timeline events, as the book looks beyond just the contradictions within the US Constitution and state laws. It examines the struggles of those trying to be freed and those who tried to aid them. This descriptive and captivating insight into what led to the Civil War is not just a great read for history buffs, but also a great read for every American to delve into the history of our country, how we faced this great injustice, and how it still effects us today.

The War Before the War focuses on the effect the Fugitive Slave Clause in the US Constitution had on American politics, economics, and culture from the Revolutionary War to the end of the Civil War. This book was an eye opening experience since it illuminated how complex the issue of slavery was for the fledgling nation. Instead of the oversimplified idea that some people thought slavery was good and others thought it was bad, the author discusses a wide range of point of views held by people all across America. Some abolitionist were not fighting to defend the African-American population but to support job opportunities for white men.

Becoming Ranks as 2018’s Bestseller


Former First Lady and Author, Michelle LaVaughn Robinson, girl of the South Side’s splendid memoir touches on a variety of issues beset by the First Black President and First Lady of the United States.  Her specific burden was such: A black woman campaigning alongside the first black man to secure a Democratic major-party  nomination for the presidency, she was unwavering in her support—and in her countenance—partly because she had no choice.

The jagged and derailed terrain of American politics with the added threat of American racism hanging over the Obama’s  is a punishingly Herculean task. It requires an uncommon resolve. It’s not surprising that Michelle Obama would have felt overwhelmed by the unrelenting negativity hurled at her and her daughters during her husband’s campaigns and presidency. The book, as titled Becoming, offers a sometimes surprisingly intimate look at the life of the former first lady, born Michelle LaVaughn Robinson. Beginning with her childhood years and ending with reflections on the current administration, Becoming covers Obama’s transformation from a young overachiever on the South Side of Chicago to one of the most formidable political figures in recent history.

Michelle Obama had not, however, condemned the current administration wholeheartedly prior to Becoming’s release. Her rebukes of Donald Trump’s agenda begin with his suggestion that Barack Obama was not a U.S. citizen, which Michelle Obama says in the book put her family at risk. This was partly on the credence perpetuated against her husband that questioned the Obamas’ Americanness and humanity. Although the current 45th President no longer mention’s his predecessor’s being born as a US Citizen, he continues to attack Barack Obama as an excused to blame for his own incompetence. His main goal is to completely repeal all Obama’s executive actions and legacy. An area of discussion which could also lead to Donald Trump’s defeat for a second term and be on the list as a one term President.

“Becoming is still a political memoir; it functions partly to solidify Barack Obama’s legacy as a complex and multilayered milestone for the country. The book makes the case for the Obama family as definitively American, for Michelle Obama’s concerns as worries that derive from the universal anxieties of marriage and motherhood. Still, Becoming is satisfying for the quiet moments in which Mrs. Obama, the woman who supported a black man named Barack all the way to the presidency, gets to let down her hair and breathe as Michelle LaVaughn Robinson, girl of the South Side”. quoted from HANNAH GIORGIS of the Atlantic.com.

In her memoir, a work of recollection and storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her own world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms.

In finally telling her story on Becoming, the Former First Lady is doing several things with this book. She is taking the country by the hand on an city and state tour of everyday African-American life and ambition, while recounting her rise from modest origins to the closest this country has to nobility. She’s meditating on the tensions women face in a world that speaks of gender equality but in which women still bear the greater burdens of balancing career and family, even with a forward-thinking husband like Barack Obama. And she is reminding readers that African-Americans, like any other group, experience the heartbreak of infertility, as she describes the challenges she and her husband confronted in order to become parents.

This is the reason why this book, “Becoming” has earned to be the Top Bestselling Book for 2018.
