Discover Challenge: The Things We Leave Behind

Whether you realize it or not, you can haunt a house while you are still alive.

There are some who believe in ghosts and some say hauntings are just evil spirits mimicking the dearly departed to cause problems and anguish.

There are those that believe strong emotions leave behind psychic imprints long after incidents have occurred and cause these so called “hauntings.”

If you have ever been around those with bad tempers or those with divine kindness you know there are indeed “vibes” that come from most one way or the other. Most of us are fairly spiritually weak and others vibes, or energy, does not appear to effect us one way or the other or so we think. Others are highly sensitive and can be very offended and even traumatized by just being near someone else’s “disturbed” spirit or bad mood. Prayer works wonders in balancing and calming the spirit and attracting that which is good in the world.  That which is Godly.

Being constantly upset and angry does the opposite and some believe brings other bad things. Jesus spoke of the “house well swept” after exorcism and advised that your temple needs to be filled with the Word of God so you make yourself inviting to that which is pure, holy and peaceful with the positive energy of prayer.  Dwell on good things constantly. Philippians 4:4-9.

God bless us, everyone.

Monsters Are Real

skulloutlines2

When you watch a horror movie about monsters or psycho killers, they all have one thing in common that is supposed to bring fear to your heart.

These “things” will stop at nothing!  Is that a character flaw?  That alone, no.  The reason they don’t stop is they are focused on one thing.  Obsessed, if you will, single-minded to get what they want.  Problem with scary movies is they usually want to harm or kill someone.  Usually it’s some innocent person that doesn’t even know the perpetrator of this evil.  Never met them, never wants to meet them and hopes it will crawl back into hell from whence it came!

Complete and utter lack of compassion and empathy is shared by all.  I guess that’s why I have no sympathy for murderers of any kind.  I don’t compare those that have had to kill in self-defense or for the good of all as murderers or even killers.  They did what they had to do against what their personal beliefs were for the good of mankind or to save themselves from someone who didn’t give them a choice in the matter.  That is very different from having the heart of a monster.  In fact many of those people are heroes.

The real monsters are many now because most don’t believe in God.  That belief alone says you have no faith.  Faithless people are capable of anything and it’s not likely it will be anything positive.  They are empty vessels and all vessels will be filled with something whether they know it or not.  Jesus spoke of this when he referred to the body as the house and it was well swept after an exorcism but must be filled in a way as to not invite more evil spirits.  He also made reference to serving.  Everything a man does reflects his true heart and who he serves.  Who do you serve?

All God’s children fill their vessels with love and they share this love in all that they do.

My mother lied to me as a child when she told me there was no such thing as monsters.  Every time we listen to the latest horror fest on the news, we know for certain that monsters really do exist.  But much like the monsters in the movies, they never win.

POPPING MEMORIES

I’m not talking popping them like pills, but popping like in bubbles or balloons.  Can you do this?  I have always managed to keep most of my unpleasant memories completely out of reach in my mind.  I am not really sure how my psyche actually did this to protect me.  I do know that I never ended up completely destroyed or addicted from my sad/bad life like my siblings or others I know that have gone through the same kinds of experiences.  I have not become angry and self-destructive in a way that has completely ruined my life.  My life was ruined, but not completely. 

I have actually experienced selective amnesia for some of the really traumatic incidents that occurred when I was young.  There was one act of evil that I had absolutely no recollection of, even when my sister brought it up and I asked my mother later if my sister was losing her mind in saying this.  My mother was naturally shocked and only when she confronted me with the fact that I could not have actually forgotten something that horrible, I remembered and then was almost angry at them jogging this awake again for me.  Is that fair for people to speak of things that never need to be thought of again?  For what end would someone bring up something painful? 

This is why I have avoided most of my family, most of my adult life.  I didn’t want to admit I came from a freak show.  Many of us do, I realize this.  In fact I love reading other people’s biographies, especially those of people that are not celebrities.  It makes me feel so much better about my life and less a freak.  I prefer to live each day the best I can and I have always gotten great satisfaction that although I am not perfect, I do most things well.  I have always worked hard and have numerous talents that I have used at various times in my life.  When I was young my talents afforded me many of my friendships because of shared interests or some that were just impressed with my skill as an artist or dancer.  These are the kinds of things I put my attentions on.  Positive works because I cared about living and found that there actually was so much good in the world if you only cared and tried.  I never knew this is having hope.  I had a friend once tell me that she was jealous of me.  She said it in a nice way, but after a while it did kind of show. 

Since I have been in menopause my memory has become worse.  I would forget about anything and not have to play some psychological mind game in my brain to do so.  So getting older does have its perks if you need to forget.
