Story Of The Month – Bless Your Stress

blogstory
‘WHY YOU SHOULD BLESS YOUR STRESS’
Author – unknown
Although relaxation ought to be, um, relaxing, stress management has somehow become another pressing item on our to-do list. We’re made to feel like failures if we can’t balance ourselves. But stress is good. The discomfort of stress is a sign that you are tackling life’s problems head-on. Stress improves productivity and performance –at work, at the gym –and your body will be stronger if you alternate periods of calm & excitement.
Once stress reaches a certain level, however, productivity goes down. Too much stress leads to sleep problems and irritability and can lead to a weakened immune system.
Your goal is not to completely avoid stress & lounge in your pj’s all day. Not only is the couch potato life boring, it’s a classic sign of depression.
Know this: Sometimes stress will get the better of you. A crucial aspect of stress management is self-acceptance –knowing that you are, for example, a stress eater. There may be days when you are so frustrated that you eat everything in the fridge. It happens. Do what you can to prevent these reactions. Meditation is great, or keeping a food or personal diary –connect with yourself and then move on.

Ask Christopher Allan – Can You Communicate With Your Loved Ones in Spirit?

Ask Christopher Allan

Ask Christopher Allan


Q:Can you connect with your own loved ones & can you help your family the same way you’ve helped people like me?

A:

I absolutely can and often do connect with my loved ones in Spirit. Relationships we have with family are ones that will always exist even beyond physical death. I am no exception just because I’m a medium I hope you know. However, conveying this connection in a manner that helps my own family is not always as easy for me as it involves people I know so much about. So I don’t “read” myself if that’s what you think. I don’t connect always connect with my loved ones the same way I would do for a client of mine. It’s not that I can’t, it’s that its hard to trust the information I’m receiving. They have to come thru in other ways to me.
On a personal level, I feel very much attached to my family and friends who have passed on. When I do live events, I always try to invite family & friends to sit in the back row both who are physically present, and those in spirit. Often, messages that come through for other families have much meaning & inspiration to my relatives in the audience. To me, this is not coincidence.
I was inspired to work in the field of mediumship to put myself out there so those I care about the most could witness & become students of my work just like you. This also supports the benefit of experiencing mediums in a group setting. Although you may not get a direct reading, it can enhance your awareness to the process that I demonstrate & can greatly affect you in-directly.
When I can, I like to have fellow mediums I am blessed to call friends, sit down with my family who want a reading. My loved ones can come through another source, one that isn’t so objective as I am when reading them. Infact, I will be doing an event next month with two gifted mediums who have helped me greatly in this field. Check them out at BobbiAllison.com and Kimthehappymedium.com.

5 Minute Meditation ™ – Your Complete Breath

Christopher Allan 5 Minute Meditation

Christopher Allan 5 Minute Meditation

THIS MONTH: YOUR COMPLETE BREATH

This months meditation shouldn’t be called ‘Christopher Allan’s 5 Minute Mediation’ as I am respectfully sharing an important aspect of meditation & it’s actually from medium John Holland’s book ‘Psychic Navigator’. A great read that includes this wonderful exercise.

In order to meditate properly and effectively, there needs to be rhythm in your breathing. This is the Complete Breathe Exercise.

Sit down with your back straight. Breathe through your nose, inhaling steadily for 5 seconds. Slowly breathe into your stomach, letting the air move up to your lower lungs, & then into your chest area. Hold your breath for 3 seconds, then exhale very slowly from your mouth,- holding your chest in a firm position while drawing in your abs slightly, and slowly lift it upward as the air leaves your lungs. When all the air is exhaled, relax your chest & abs. You have just did one Complete Breathe.
This needs to be carried out in one slow, continuous breath, which will be distributed to all three parts of the lungs. Make sure you feel it in all of these parts when you’re supposed to. Some people prefer to practice near a mirror while placing their hands on their abs. You may feel a little ‘jerky’ in the beginning, but soon you’ll be able to complete this in one smooth breathe.
Soon you’ll quickly understand how it will benefit you in all your future breath work & meditations I will be writing about in the coming blogs. Remember “you are your breath.”

Story Of The Month – The Power Of Positive Thinking

blogstory
‘THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING’

Positive thinking brings inner peace, success, improved relationships, better health, happiness and satisfaction. It also helps the daily affairs of life move more smoothly, and makes life look bright and promising.

Positive thinking is contagious. People around you sense your mental moods and are affected accordingly. Think about happiness, good health and success, and you will cause people to like you and desire to help you, because they enjoy the vibrations that a positive mind emits.
In order to make positive thinking yield results, you need to develop a positive attitude toward life, expect a successful outcome of whatever you do, but also take any necessary actions to insure your success.

Effective positive thinking that brings results is much more than just repeating a few positive words, or telling yourself that everything is going to be all right. It has to be your predominant mental attitude. It is not enough to think positively for a few moments, and then letting fears and lack of belief enter your mind. Some effort and inner work are necessary.Are you willing to make a real inner change?Are you willing to change the way you think?Are you willing to develop a mental power that can positively affect you, your environment and the people around you?
Here are a few actions and tips to help you develop the power of positive thinking:

  • Allow into your awareness only feelings of happiness, strength and success.Try to disregard and ignore negative thoughts. Refuse to think such thoughts, and substitute them with constructive happy thoughts.
  • In your conversation use words that evoke feelings and mental images of strength, happiness and success.
  • Before starting with any plan or action, visualize clearly in your mind its successful outcome. If you visualize with concentration and faith, you will be amazed at the results.
  • Watch movies that make you feel happy.
  • Minimize the time you listen to the news and read the papers.
  • Associate yourself with people who think positively.
  • Always sit and walk with your back straight. This will strengthen your confidence and inner strength.
  • Walk, swim or engage in some other physical activity. This helps to develop a more positive attitude.
  • Always use only positive words while thinking and while talking. Use words such as, ‘I can’, ‘I am able’, ‘it is possible’, ‘it can be done’, etc.Think positive and expect only favorable results and situations, even if your current circumstances are not as you wish them to be. In time, your mental attitude will affect your life and circumstances and change them accordingly.

Ask Christopher Allan – When Did You Learn You Could Talk To The Dead?

babyca

As a psychic medium, the most asked question I get would be, ‘When did you first realize you had this ability?’. So let me share.

It’s always been hard for me to figure out when exactly I realized I “could” communicate with the dead. And to me, if they communicate, they aren’t really ‘dead’, right? Ever since I can remember, I always had this feeling of never truly being alone, even when the house was empty. And I’m an only child, which may make that an even weirder statement. But I’ve always felt like I have a group of people behind me, watching every move I make, every step I take. And I’m sure it’s not Sting or The Police, but rather just a ‘feeling’ or ‘knowing’. It’s like having a spiritual studio audience. Maybe we all do have angels or “guides” watching us and this is why I feel the way I do. It was this feeling, that I’ve felt since I was a small kid, I suppose indicated that I could pick up on spirit. But, again, I can’t exactly pinpoint when I realized I “could” communicate with the dead, but here is the story of when I first “would” communicate with them.

I was 8 years old and I was at my grandparents house in Babylon, NY. It was the day after Christmas & my parents and I revisited them to eat some holiday left-overs . As soon as we were done eating, I raced to the living room to being coloring in my new Ninja Turtles coloring book Santa had gotten me the day before. Laid out on the floor, I was creatively at work when I heard a voice. It sounded like mine, but I knew it wasn’t my own thoughts. Out of nowhere I heard this voice say, “It’s Sal.The phone is going to ring, if your grandmother starts crying, tell her I’m just fine! Hug hard her for me. We’ll be together real soon.”

Before I could even process what I just heard, the phone rang and my grandmother went to answer. As she picked up the phone, I yelled, “SAL!!”. It’s all I could blurt out from the randomness of what I had just heard in my head. I looked up at my grandma & I saw that she instantly become emotional while replying on repeat “Oh my God. Oh my God”, to whatever the person on the other line was sharing with her. My grandma hung up the phone. Back in the kitchen, my mom asked “What’s the matter, Mom? Who was on the phone?” My grandmother replied “Sal. He died. Christmas Eve”. She then went back to crying near the edge of her couch. 

I thought to myself ‘How did I know that? How did I know that the phone was going to ring? How did I know she would become upset by the call? Was that Sal, the man who used to pick me up and sit me on the dining room table  amusing me with corny magic tricks? At 8 years old, it took me long enough, but I had figured out the old ‘I got your nose’ trick & understood that quarters didn’t grow in my ear, but how did he pull of this trick and get in my mind? And how could he be dead anyway when he was in my ear?

At the time, as confusing as it was, I didn’t ignore it nor question it further. I simply listened to what I was told to do and put coloring on hold. I climbed up to my grandma, who was visibly shaken. I gave her the biggest hug I could & then whispered, “Don’t cry grandma, he said you’ll be together again real soon”. She looked at me with a confused look. One where she was baffled by what an eight year old boy was saying. At least she stopped crying. I knew she had heard me blurt out his name as she picked up the phone. She just looked at me and said “I always knew you were special”.

I’ll never forget that moment, this sad situation somehow brought my grandmother & I closer. Many times when I read people, I think back to that day that to me, feels like yesterday, because it obviously had a profound impact on me. After that experience, whenever there was a famed “psychic” on television, she would call me in to the room to watch. She would leave out books about Afterlife communication out for me to read that she had. My grandmother was always considered in my family as a psychic herself. But because I was adopted & born from another country, this gift we both possessed couldn’t have been passed down. Maybe this is why I was adopted into this family. My family is the perfect blend of those who are spiritually deep, intuitive, but also includes those who question everything. But they never questioned their love for me. I do know that my grandma never judged me, but supported me & gave me love and was always eager to hear what I had to share. My parents always did the same. And it was because I always felt comfortable with myself, never feeling that I had to hold in my feelings or ‘ability’, that it made me develop into the medium I am today.

5 Minute Meditation ™ – Bedtime Meditation

Christopher Allan 5 Minute Meditation

Christopher Allan 5 Minute Meditation

THIS MONTH: Simple & Effective — The Bedtime Meditation

 During a busy day, it’s hard to find time to focus & meditate effectively. So as soon as you get into bed, try this simple mantra-based technique. Start with five to 10 minutes, it may even help those who struggle falling to sleep!

1. Lying on your back, close your eyes and notice your breath.
2. As you inhale, focus on a soothing phrase, such as “I am safe and whole.” You can say it aloud or in your mind. When exhaling, silently repeat the phrase. The specific phrase isn’t that important; the mantra’s purpose is to give your mind something simple to focus on.
3. If your mind wanders, gently turn your attention back to your breath and back to the mantra.
4: As listed above, repeat this mahntra for 5-10 minutes. You will notice yourself becoming more relaxed & your mind will become more clearer with each repetition.

Story Of The Month – Spiritual Spaces

blogstory
‘SPIRITUAL SPACES’ by Sue G, Malvern, PA.
(A GOOD VIEW)
catinwindow
My cats love my window seat in my house, even though the view isn’t spectacular. That’s where they watch leaves scatter, chat with birds, curl up for a nap in the sunlight, and wait for me to come home. Every day I take each cat for a walk on the patio while the other sits at the window & waits his turn. Seeing a cat on the window seat…for me, that’s the best view there is. It reminds me to be more like my cats –to be patient and generous and to see beauty in the tiniest of things.
