Dealing with Grief is a spiritual process

How to deal with grief and loss is what my guest writer, Myste Lyn Anderson will share with you this week.

Dealing with Grief and Loss takes courage.

I’ve known Margherita for a good number of years now and I love how our paths continue to cross in this global online world. Spiritual healing is something we have in common and each time I meet with Margherita, I notice her grounded presence and immediately feel connected with her. Science has shown that everything is energy and I’d have to say that we have a similar ‘vibe’ (I love how what we intuitively knew in the 60s and 70s is now being proven by modern science.)

Watch Myste interviewed by Margherita Crystal Lotus (Myste lives in the Canadian Arctic, so the internet was not too good – we apologize for this.)

I was delighted when Margherita asked me to write about my program for her new website. I believe that spiritual healing and therapy tools, if used more frequently, could facilitate major shifts in world peace. For this to happen, we need to make peace within ourselves first. As each individual comes to fully accept themselves without judgement, then so it will follow that we will no longer judge others and world peace will ensue. Sounds easy? 😉

Let’s look at ourselves honestly; can you say that you do not judge yourself? If we want to heal, it’s time to start paying attention to our habitual thoughts and behaviours and release self-judgement.

Return to PeaceThis is the first step of My PEACE Process; The“P” in PEACE stands for presence. When we are present we notice, with a gentle, non-judgemental observance, what is going on around and inside of ourselves. We use the practice of attention to breath to facilitate this process.

Deep healing can begin when we take the time to notice our moment-to-moment thoughts about things. When we start catching ourselves in judgement, which is almost always triggered by unresolved fears, this opens a doorway to inner exploration. When we take time to explore inwards (and I show women how to do this in a safe comfortable way), what we find hidden away is not as bad as we imagined it to be.

Fears that trigger us to fight, flight, or freeze, can be noticed and explored. This act in itself, turning us to look at fear instead of running from it, diminish the power our fear has over us.

But, who takes time to stop and explore their fears and overwhelming feelings? When most of us are triggered, something happens biologically that activates strong feelings making us feel uncomfortable and shuts down our frontal lobe (the area of the brain in charge of higher thinking). Our primitive body then takes over to protect ourselves (as was necessary in our biological past) and we jump into auto-pilot and revert to our habitual coping mechanism with is usually one of the three: fight (argue), flight (leave) or freeze (shut down).

“The part I find interesting and what I believe is a divine gift, is that situations that trigger us often continue to show up in our lives… as much as we wish they would stop .” Myste Lyn

Now if instead of feeling like “Good grief, why does this always happen to me?” we saw it as an opportunity to heal, would this not make a difference?  This is where I believe the Divine IS intervening – it’s a way of saying “Hey, you haven’t figured this one out yet so I’m going to continue put it in front of you until you learn to approach it like the Divine being that you are.”

spiritual healingBeing human means feeling deeply. Why are we so quick to avoid strong feelings? Maybe we were told not to cry, not to get angry, to be a good girl and smile when we felt like crying and screaming?

The bittersweet part, I believe, is that these uncomfortable situations arise because they need to be healed. They are in fact a gift from a higher power presenting us with an opportunity to try again. If our reactions are hurting and not helping us, may it be that there is an easier way?

My PEACE Process teaches an easier way to deal with grief and loss

It gently guides women on an inner journey where they connect with who they really are at core, their Divine self, the person they were born to be, the person they were before they had fears. Once reconnected to this inner place of peace (which we all have waiting quietly inside us) we are capable of doing the inner work to explore and unearth subconscious fears that have been holding us back from living a life full of love and wonder. It is from here that you are guided to re-write your story from the perspective of your Divine higher self; it is from this place of peace that you revisit each of the things that trigger you and decide from your place of deep inner knowing how you will act the next time this happens.

Science has proven that the brain does not know the difference between when we imagine ourselves doing something and when we actually do it (this is why athletes are coached to imagine themselves performing great feats before the big event).

Scientifically we are re-wiring our brains to connect with a higher level of thinking, doing, and being and this allows us to release old habits and shift into higher and more joyous levels of consciousness.

Like all change in life peace is a process, and it takes practice. I hope you can join me as we begin this process on October 4th; this will be the first time I’ll be offering free live weekly calls to guide participants through My PEACE Process. Find out more here

A wise person once said: “It’s not situations that take away our peace, it’s how we respond to them.” Each of us have the power to change and practice the spiritual process of Peace.

Gentle blessings,

How can video games contribute to spiritual insights and well-being?

In this post, I will introduce my guest writer Dmitriy, who is a master of video games. I asked him how can video games contribute to spiritual insights and well-being. And he answered with this post!

Hello everyone!

My name is Dmitriy and this is my first guest post at Actually it’s my first guest post ever, although I’ve been trying to maintain my own blogs for quite a while.

I became acquainted with Margherita (who is the owner of this site) several days ago, through an online network the members of which we both happen to be. I usually introduce myself to a few members of that network every day by sending them a message explaining who I am and what do I do for living. The next day I check for any replies from the members and reply to them in return, after which the conversation usually ends. This wasn’t the case with Margherita.

Now, then, my area of expertise – if I can say so – is video games. Not any video games, mind you, but those that have the power to affect the lives of people in a beneficial way, either significantly or slightly. When I sent my message to Margherita, I didn’t expect anything special to happen, but as I checked back for the reply, I was surprised to see a question – and an offer to write a guest post on her Website.

Margherita asked me “How can video games contribute to spiritual insights and well-being?”, and today I’m going to try and answer this question with a short real-life story. Some of you may even heard it already.

Video games rarely receive praise from the people who do not play them, and are often perceived as being evil and having a bad influence on young people around the world. I’m not going to argue with that – at least not today, and not in this post. Instead, I’ll tell you about a family. About parents,  who lost their child. A mother and a father, who chose not to become lost in their tragedy, but to help others in the same situation – by creating a video game.

The game I’m talking about is called “That Dragon, Cancer”. It tells a story of Ryan and Amy Green, who discovered that their 1-year-old son Joel had cancer. It is a short game – to play it through will take roughly 2 hours, but those will be one of  the most emotionally intense hours in your life. Basically, the game consists of several scenes depicting the actual experiences through which the Green family went, while dealing with Joel’s treatment.

“That Dragon, Cancer”, was created, as a means of expressing and sharing the feelings of people, who’s fighting a battle that can’t be won. A means of letting others know they’re not alone with their own battles, to help them find hope, faith and peace. It is also a means to help people understand what does it take to be a parent of a dying child. It tells a true story, everything shown in the game is what happened to the Greens on their difficult and tragic journey.

You might ask how can such a game “contribute to spiritual insights and well-being”? The answer lies within the actual impact it did and continues to do on the real world around us. There’s at least one other family, who found comfort in understanding they’re not alone with their problem and I’m sure there are more like them. This article at Kotaku tells about that family – read it, they have a much better way with words than me.

I hope you enjoyed reading this and will see video games in a better light from now on 🙂

Spiritual Healing Energy

The universe pours in spiritual healing energy in increments depending on the currents in the universal matrix. How does it affect you and me? You may feel you are not worthy and cannot make sense of what is happening to you. The moon also affects our emotion with the tides up and down, and for women and their moon cycle it can be rather cumbersome.

What effect does spiritual healing energy have?

The effect for many people is to face the boundaries of ones comfort zone. But, honestly that is in the end good. Because, how can we otherwise evolve as a species. A person don’t like to be in the pain of painful emotions. Most of us want to be happy, but some of of us do not know what happy is or how to get there. When spiritual healing energies increases, you have a good chance to get over the blocks and difficulties in your life, like being content, peaceful and have a balanced mind. But some of us react, or crave certain foods, and other not so good stuff. 

What if you do not agree to do spiritual healing?

It is up to you to believe all is as normal, but for some who don’t, they have the knowledge to deal with it. Or, at least search for a solution to their issues. You know when you have a pain in your foot when you twisted your ankle. You cannot think of anything else than that. You seek for an immediate fix. It becomes a priority above anything else. It doesn’t help that your cat jumps up on your lap, or your partner says something nice. You want ice on your ankle, and lay on the sofa with your leg up on a pillow.
It is the same is with emotional states, like frustration, grief, anxiety and foremost stress. To reduce those states we apply for example, our eating habits, or other harmful behaviour. And, our fragile heart gets further blocked. To be stuck in layers of painful stress, makes it worse. 
A simple solution is better than complicated medications and rigorous spiritual practice. Not, that they don’t work, but you want to fix yourself right now!
