Spirit is always there loving and guiding us on our journey through life. We all have spirit guides that are there helping us learn lessons, protecting us, and yes communicating to us. Communication through spirit guides comes in many forms. Spiritual communication can come in the form of symbols, colors, numbers, songs, nature, feelings, emotions, animals, finding a book, and meeting new people. Many times spirit uses synchronicity and irony to get your attention. This is how spirit guides ring your bell. The more you pay attention and listen to your environment, the easier it is to realize and strengthen your spiritual connection! The key is to pay attention to the ironic coincidence and synchronicity that occurs in your daily life. Timing is everything!

“This bill we are introducing seeks to right decades of wrong and end unnecessary marijuana laws,” Booker said at a Capitol news conference, where lawmakers were joined by veterans and other patients who use marijuana to relieve pain or suffering. All said they fear prosecution if they move to a different state or if the federal government decides to crack down on medical marijuana use.
“Our federal government has long overstepped the boundaries of common sense, fiscal prudence and compassion with its marijuana laws. These laws must change,” Booker said.
“Otherwise law-abiding Americans — bankers, business people, veterans and families — are fearful of unnecessary, expensive, life-disrupting investigations and prosecutions,” Booker said. “Today we join together to say enough is enough.”
The Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States (CARERS) Act, introduced by Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), is a bipartisan bill to extend the principle of federalism to State drug policy, provide access to medical marijuana, and enable research into the medicinal properties of marijuana. In other words, reclassifying marijuana from a Schedule I drug to a Schedule II drug. A schedule II classification is for less dangerous drugs that have an accepted medical use. To date, 23 states, along with the District of Columbia, have legalized medical marijuana and 12 others have legalized the limited use of low-THC marijuana for medical purposes.
One of the most significant goals of the bill is to allow for patients, doctors and businesses to participate in their states’ medical marijuana programs without fear of being prosecuted by the federal government.
Points of emphasis of the bill are as follows:
1. Protection from federal prosecution
2. Reclassifying marijuana as a less dangerous substance and descheduling low-THC strains of marijuana (CBD oils)
3. Banks can work with medical marijuana businesses
4. Makes it easier to do research on marijuana
5. Allows access for veterans to receive medical marijuana treatment
Since being introduced, the bill has gained two cosponsors: Republican Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada and Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer of California. Despite bipartisan support for the bill, it remains unclear whether it will be taken up in the Republican-controlled Senate.
These are the 24 Runes of the Elder Futhark
Dealing with the loss of a loved one, can be a very difficult experience that we all will go through in our lifetime. Grief will effect each of us differently and it is a common and natural emotion that can effect you mentally and physically. The loss of a relative, friend, or a beloved pet can be a very emotional and traumatic event in our lives. Sadly, there is no quick fix or a specific amount of time it takes to recover from the loss of a loved one.
Grief is often described to have 5 stages. These are not in any order and can be experienced in different stages.
1. Denial, Numbness, Isolation, Non-belief
2. Anger, Blame, Guilt
3. Bargaining, Deals with God
4. Depression, Sadness, Crying
Family and friends can be a source of emotional comfort as well as outside sources like clergy, spiritual healers, social workers, and mental health specialists. For some people, grief can be debilitating and may not improve even after a significant amount of time has passed. This can be a sign of complicated grief which can lead to major depression that requires medical attention.
Faith can be a great source of strength when dealing with your grief. Death is part of the great circle of life, but I find comfort knowing that Spirit never dies. Spirit is eternal. For many, death is a morbid thing to talk about because it is associated with so much grief and finality. I like to look at death as a new birth or beginning for the deceased. In that context, death isn’t so final or morbid. Once again, I find comfort knowing that Spirit never dies. The body is just a vessel the spirit uses. We may not have the physical presence of the deceased to hold or do things with, but Spirit is eternal. Spirit transcends death and can be with you lovingly, long after death.
Since the spirit of a loved one transcends death, you may feel their presence in many different ways. You may smell aromas that remind you of them. You may start to experience synchronistic events that can seem ironic in nature that trigger memories of them. Many times the spirit of a loved one will visit us in our dreams. These occurrences may be perceived as paranormal, but I see them as natural ways for spirits to remind us that their spirit lives on. These spiritual events are more common than you may realize.
My maternal grandmother had a magnet on her refrigerator that read, “God is Love”. It is through love that we are all connected. Love is eternal and everlasting. In my book, Metaphysics and Lore, I write about my own spiritual awakening. In the book, I write about being visited in a dream by my uncle the night he died. In my dream, he told me he was dead. I now know spirit transcends death and you don’t have to be a shaman to communicate with deceased loved ones. You only need love. It is through the everlasting eternal love that spiritual communication happens. It isn’t difficult as some would have you believe. You only have to change your perception and awareness for you to feel and communicate with the spirit of the deceased. Remember it is a true love connection and that connection is eternal and everlasting.
There is a time and a season for everything. There is no such thing as a coincidence, so pay close attention to the ironic or synchronistic events that take place. That is the spiritual telephone trying to get your attention. The more you take notice of these events and really try to perceive them, the more spiritually aware you will become.
Many times people feel the need for a psychic reading and that is okay, but it isn’t always necessary. A psychic reading can help give someone healing or validation of things, but try to remember that every person is psychic. It is all in the awareness and perception we use. We all have the spiritual telephone from which to communicate. It is called love. Love is the eternal connection that allows spirit to transcend death and it is through love that spirit can communicate with us.
Grief from the loss of a loved one stems from our love and it is through love that we can conquer our grief. Love truly can conquer all.
