The human spirit is indomitable and miraculous.

Just when you believe life is at its worst, your spirit shows you a glimmer of hope and begins the ascent out of desperation and raises you to a level of understanding and wisdom you would never have thought possible. Miracle by tiny miracle, your spirit unveils the truth of who you truly are and begins to help you understand your greatness.

You are not a mistake. You were not created by accident. You were created to fulfill a great purpose needed on Earth at this time. Do you know what that purpose is? If not, it will be revealed to you when the time comes and when you are ready. Embrace the mystical, magical being you are for there is only one of you. You are unique and you are precious.

I write of the spirit because it is the forever part of your being. For many of us, our spirits have experienced human existences before and for many, our spirits will be back to experience more human lifetimes. This is a choice we make with our guide and mother/father god.

Always, the reason for experiencing a human lifetime is to learn lessons with the ultimate being forgiveness so we can live in the absolute state of unconditional love. Is it possible? Yes, it absolutely is and the question then comes down to how much are you willing to learn and heal to reach the pinnacle of your existence that is unconditional love?

There are days when I question my existence and the journey I have undertaken as this being called Sharon Joseph. Am I worthy of such an existence and of such understanding I have with the world, the universe and mother/father god? Without fail, I receive confirmation that I am indeed worthy as is everyone else that has ever been, is now, and will ever be.

A message from the goddess Brigid:
"The power to vanquish the darkness is within each and everyone of you. It is not reserved for the select few but it is wielded by a select few. Be the few and wield the power of love to conquer the fears lurking in your hearts. Shine the light and bring to an end the need to rely on others for absolution and for freedom. Seek it for yourself and grab it as it appears to you. This is your birthright. It is your birthright."

As I approach the big "5""0" birthday, I have come to the realisation that more years in my life are behind me now then the number of years ahead of me. This usually makes one stop and consider what we are doing with the rest our lives.

As part of my "live truth, speak truth" mantra, I am taking time to revisit certain events and understanding the lesson in those events and doing the necessary healing and forgiveness to release those events from my being. While there are decisions I could have done differently, I know trying to change the past is futile and irrelevant. I am simply to accept the decisions and continue pressing forward to live the best life possible with what I know now.

Perhaps I could create a bucket list of activities I want to do, places I want to go and people I want to meet. What about living in the moment and allowing adventures to take me to where I need to be to experience the best life ever? How about a combination of both? Having a bucket list and being open to whatever adventures come your way so it covers activities on the bucket list and not? Yup. That sounds like a winner.

I do giggle to myself often though that knowing what I know about reincarnation, if I do not complete everything I need to in this lifetime, I could choose to come back and finish off the rest. The only challenge to that is to leave myself messages in the future for what I have done now. I wonder if that is even possible...I shall explore that further. Think about it much fun would it be to push a message to your future self?

What would you tell your future self if you could do a human life all over again?

I will leave you to ponder that question. I wish you a blessed day.

With love
As a human being, I am constantly questioning my existence, why I am here, who am I truly, what purpose am I here to serve and so on. I am on the constant quest for growth and understanding. It started when I was young and trying to figure out why I was here. Believe it or not, even at a young age I knew I was different and I used to stare at my hands and the rest of my body and wonder who it belonged to. Funny, huh? I never felt like my body was truly mine.

I asked my brother one day if he felt the same way. He scoffed at me and said no. Actually, it was more like the long drawn out no ending with a question about my sanity. I walked away from that short conversation wounded and even more confused than ever. I began to feel isolated thinking I was the only weirdo on the planet.

I tried hard to fit into the world I chose to be born into and pretended to be happy and normal. I did a pretty good job of it. No one really pushed hard to get past the surface but my anger at being me would rear its ugly head in different ways and none of those ways were very pretty. I used food for as my drug of choice because I did not have access to money so could not buy any other stimulants and even if I could, I was too afraid of getting caught to do anything illegal. So, food it was and also constant activity. If I could succeed in my career, maybe I would feel some sort of belonging. Delusional was I and I deluded myself for many years. I was quite successful in my career but was still lost.

I have healed many fears and beliefs over the last 6 or 7 years and I have come to terms with who I am. I am still working on the wanting to be here because I have a great desire to go home and my life purpose is still a mystery so if any of you reading this blog have any ideas for me, I would love to hear them! (I do understand I am here to mirror unconditional love as part of my mission.) Anyways, a couple of years ago, Creator had asked me to call myself shaman and I had to ponder that request for a while because I did not understand what a shaman did and did not want to be different from anyone. Finally, I accepted direction from Creator and I labelled myself shaman.

Fast forward to this past Sunday. Allan and I and our dog took a drive to find a beach. Unfortunately, our favourite go to place has been cutoff from public access with a barbed wire fence and big red "Private Property" signs. Maybe they are afraid we will steal sand!? Anyways, when we go for a drive, it gives me plenty of opportunities to think and ponder. One of the questions I asked myself this day was "what does a shaman really do!?"  Be careful what you ask.

Shortly after I asked myself that question, I got a vision of Miramichi and was guided to go there. My husband, being the understanding and saintly man, simply shrugged and said okay. He turned the car in the direction of Miramichi and we were off. I listened for guidance on the way but heard nothing. We pulled over at a gas station shortly before Miramichi and then my husband says "We need to go to Black River Bridge." As soon as he said it, I heard yes, this is true. What is shocking about this exchange is my husband's constant claim that he is not intuitive. I often refer to him as my "non-intuitive intuitive Lallan."  As we change direction for Black River Bridge, I am called to stop at a small church and perform some healing to the indigenous spirits who feel slighted by the church's existence especially since they were unfairly killed for the land it sits on. It was an honour to be able to help them heal and move on.

Non-intuitive intuitive Lallan then says, we have another stop to make and continues to drive on. We drive up to Black River and pass over a bridge. "This is it," he declares. We pull into a small dirt lane leading us down to an old dock and the water's edge. "Heal the water" is the message I receive. As I get out of the car and advance to the water, I connect with its energy and feel the hurt and sadness. Standing on the dock, I visualize building a crystalline grid in the water to bring in love, light and healing for the creatures living in and around the water. Suddenly, fish are jumping, coming to the surface, birds begin to sing and fly in wonderful joyful patterns across the water and into the sky. I smile knowing I have helped in some small way and then I hear "this is what shaman do."

Yup. This is what shaman do.

With love
