How Can We Build Enchantment Into Our Lives? - Part 2

Written by Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein

Continued from page 1

I am reminded of an article of Dr. Holstein's called Positive Spaces, which focuses alongrepparttar same lines. When you are surrounded by enchantment and things that really reflect your own personality and things that you love, you create new warm memories by bringing outrepparttar 110134 best ofrepparttar 110135 past.

For example, my love of New Orleans has inspired me to create a Creole-style kitchen and my love ofrepparttar 110136 Caribbean has inspired a soft bathroom with unusual colors. It is so fun to be creative and pullrepparttar 110137 best from your experiences.

A Play Date with Building Enchantment

You have now read two different accounts of making a house come alive with personal history. Take a few moments to reflect on what you have loved inrepparttar 110138 past. Was it what you saw on a vacation? Perhaps, actual household items, as I talked about. Perhaps a certain style or time period makes you feel great.

What else would you like to bring into your life ... new things ... a new home ...a garden ... new clothes? Perhaps it is nothing physical, but things like more music, or time with friends. Whatever it is, take some time to daydream. Let our stories wet your appetite and give you encouragement to bring more enchantment into your life.

Dr. Holstein is the originator of The Enchanted Self and a psychologist since 1981. She is the author of two books: The Enchanted Self, A Positive Therapy and Recipes for Enchantment, The Secret Ingredient is YOU! Dr. Holstein speaks on radio, and appears on television in NY and NJ. She gives lectures, seminars, retreats and audio interviews on and is in private practice in Long Branch, NJ with her husband, Dr. Russell Holstein.

Dear our beloved crying planet…

It is inrepparttar name of GOD, if you all believe in His or Her existence, that you insist upon fighting each other and have done so for so many years. To achieve what may I ask? Inrepparttar 110133 end, you all haverepparttar 110134 same GOD but believe in a different messenger. That’srepparttar 110135 only difference!! Think about it! Isn’t it GOD who created this planet that we call earth? If you are fighting each other inrepparttar 110136 name of that GOD then instead of fighting, why don’t you use that energy and effort toward protecting His or Her creation? Isn’t it that more rewarding for our GOD than fighting?

Please take a moment to have some inner reflection if I do not make any sense to you with what I am saying. You all pray torepparttar 110137 same creator so why don’t you then sit down and figure out how to save his creation and start making some pressure instead of fighting?

I believerepparttar 110138 leaders of all religions should really begin taking responsibility in making some changes. It is time to begin educating their people about truth ofrepparttar 110139 situation. Inrepparttar 110140 event of war, nothing, and I mean nothing will ever be solved. War only succeeds in creating more anger, hate, suffering and children growing up feeling lost, confused and bitter towards life. The only way we will understand this is when GOD shakes us up. Perhaps he might do so by giving us a few earthquakes or why notrepparttar 110141 odd hurricane or volcano all overrepparttar 110142 planet, in order us to ‘shake’ us up into seeing sense? Human beings need humiliation to make them stand up on their feet and begin bringing more loving energies and compassion to themselves and their fellow ‘soul mates’.

How many of you knowrepparttar 110143 name of your neighbors? Or, in fact, better than that, how many of us greet our neighbors when we pass them and give them a smile? Not many I’ll bet, but you’ll see, when disaster strikes and if there is a tragic event that hitsrepparttar 110144 whole neighborhood we will not hesitate to ask for help and assistance when we are shaking with fear and suddenly beginning to appreciate life and other people. Only under such circumstances will we ever be thankful enough to realize what we have in our hands. We will greet each other, hug each other and wish each other well for our safety, why not do these things before a disaster strikes? We probably need major disasters to hit every country before we will change our selfish ways. Maybe then we will wake up and facerepparttar 110145 reality of our existence.

Things really should not have to be made to go to that extreme. It is about time to waken up. We are in a world where our priorities have been tempered with power, greed, money and control. We have witnessed throughout history anything that goes up must come down. It is a cycle of life and no one can tamper with that! Why? A big part of those processes cause humans to become saturated with their greed, ego and pride. That’s a fact of life!

Your voice does matter just get up from sitting in your corner and start caring by taking responsibility for your existence as a part ofrepparttar 110146 human race. You are not just a statistic and you must allow yourself to be heard! This planet is becoming increasingly sicker everyday and it needs your help! Think about it! Life should be enjoyed regardless of allrepparttar 110147 hurdles that you passed through in your previous life experiences and lessons. Just use these experiences and lessons to your advantage, regardless of how bad they were. In reality your worst experiences are your best assets as they bring more growth. By using your own knowledge to help other people to get over their hurdles is a blessing because you know you have grown to become a better human being.

I am not trying to preach you here for you to join any group, belong to a religion or even convert to spirituality. There are already enough of those groups out there! I do personally believe in what we refer to as GOD. However, GOD to me exists as an illuminated, creative source of energy that brings us love and compassion in order for us to be happy. So I will refer to GOD asrepparttar 110148 “Great Energy Source”. What I am trying to show you isrepparttar 110149 awareness andrepparttar 110150 understanding that we are all human beings here! Perhaps it is hard to believe you are a human being, regardless if you are rich, poor, black, Jewish, Muslim, Christian, or which ever religion you belong to. We are all Souls manifesting in today’s world inrepparttar 110151 shape that makes us who we are as a unique being in regard to our universal consciousness’ growth. However, as a human being, in reality we are not different from anyone else.

You are here for your growth, in order for us as Souls to reach, touch and be surrounded with that “Great Energy Source”. That source is not far from us, but it is a part of us because it exists within us, as us and at all times. Acknowledgerepparttar 110152 presence of that “Great Energy Source” inside of us and not outside of us and that way, you will be able to allowrepparttar 110153 love and compassion to surface into your being for you to see that we are all fromrepparttar 110154 same source and will return torepparttar 110155 same source after our life having (hopefully) further progressed in our own evolution as individuals, but underrepparttar 110156 larger consciousness that is available inrepparttar 110157 universe that we are all a part of.

Please take a moment to reflect upon and realize your priority in this lifetime. You do have a purpose which should manifest itself in a way by coming back here again to make a change andrepparttar 110158 difference that is required of you and never doubt that responsibility. This planet needs help and needs you to waken up and realize just what is really going on inrepparttar 110159 world around you. It is time to make your life worth living!
