This morning in meditation I heard the words, “you know why you are here.” Sometimes we are here in our earthly bodies and we enjoy our experience. At other times, we might feel like we are going through the motions of life without direction or aim. Yet, if we stop and think about it all, we know why we are here. Somewhere in our core, our heart is hearing a call from God to fulfill our purpose. Each and every one of us have a job to complete while we are here but many of us get distracted by life and forget. The chaos around us can pull us off our path until something happens to help us “remember” who we are and what we are about.
Distracting us from our path is easy. We have so many gadgets and so many material goals in life, we can often forget what is really important. If Satan exists, He is there tempting us with “stuff” every moment of our lives. Once we get those “things”, we often look for the bigger and better version. Though we think we are pursing happiness, being distracted takes us further away from our inner peace. How distracted are we? Where do we place our priorities? Do we think of God and what he wants us to do? Do we think of how we can help other people? Do we spend time praying and asking God to bring peace to our world? Do we give back? Is it in our consciousness every day that we have things we can do to help, even if they are small gestures?
Truthfully, we are all here to help and it is apparent that the world really needs it. As a whole, we don’t take very good care of the planet or of each other. There is no shortage of things for us to do to help. We are needed in abundance. When people ask, “What is my purpose?” The answer is to help whatever way we can. It may be a vocation or it just may be our way of life. There isn’t always a defined answer but it can become more defined the more we work toward giving back to God. The more we do, the more the opportunities for helping will open up to us.
Remember, our existence here is about us. It is not about “you”. The more we think of how we can help others, the more we become content with being whoever we are. We begin to develop a new sense of self. We get the benefits of being strongly connected to God and of living a God centered life. We have focus and we know each day is an opportunity to fulfill what we are supposed to do while we are here. We know this already but sometimes we forget. Now is a good time to remember.
Each day ask God to plan your day for you. Ask Him where you can be of help. Then be conscious of the opportunities in front of you. Are you being asked to listen to someone who needs support? Are you being ask to pray for God’s angels to help others? Are you being asked to use your skills to do something greater? Ask and the answers will come. As with most things, it is important to stay in today and do what is put in front of you. The rest will develop naturally as it is intended to be.© May 4, 2014, Nancy Hickman, M.Ed., LLC

A topic I don’t speak about often is that of spiritual oppression. I like to keep my topics focused on the more positive aspects of God and how we can all heal with his love and help. However, that is an incomplete picture to present to the world when there is so much suffering affecting so many people. Being intuitive, I see both the loving aspects of God and the negative aspects of other energies impacting the lives of people all around me. If we view that suffering from what we see on the surface, we see a lot of dysfunction, addiction, mental illness, crime and more. We can look at each individual and say, “They have a lot of problems.” We only see the individuals behavior and not any underlying spiritual factors at work. From a psychic perspective, it is more apparent that we need to look beyond what we see on the surface and recognize that a large portion of people are actually being oppressed in a way that prevents them from being the loving productive people they are meant to be.
What is spiritual oppression? It is the presence of negative spirits in the lives of people for the purpose of disrupting harmony and creating conflict. Spiritual oppression is characterized by symptoms that manifest as: addiction, anxiety, mental illness, unexplainable physical illness, bad luck, compulsions, suicidal thoughts, fears, insomnia, nightmares, uncontrollable anger and more. Many people may also experience the manifestation of sights and sounds related to paranormal activity, physical symptoms related to uncontrollable twitching or involuntary body movements and voices. Sometimes it is just the feeling that you have an emotional weight upon you that prevents you from feeling light and happy. The level and severity of the oppression can vary but left unhealed, it can grow in strength and in impact on the lives of those suffering from it. Though there are activities people can participate in that attract negative entities, they are around in our environment and can seemingly attack a person for no reason at all.
My purpose in discussing this topic is to create awareness so we can utilize our spiritual tools in a united way to create healing. It is important to know that positive spirits are just as abundant. They are there to help us if we seek their help. When we call upon the presence of God or God’s angels, we are in fact reducing the power and ability of anything negative to have an affect on those we love. A few minutes of prayer each day can create healing. It is important to know that inviting in God’s loving presence and help is essential to healing any condition or situation involving spiritual oppression. Always remember, God’s light and love are far stronger than any negative energies or presence. I’m inviting you today to pray with me for those that are suffering and for God to intervene in a positive way to prevent crisis in the world. When we join together, our prayers are multiplied and the healing begins. ©September 29, 2013, Nancy Hickman, M.Ed., LLC
