What are dreams? Are they just random thoughts, images, sounds, and emotions that play themselves out during sleep? Is the unconscious mind actually producing and directing these high definition occurrences as a means of putting the mind in a restful and relaxed state? But that wouldn’t quite explain the reason for our nightmares, now would … Continue reading
I’m one of those people who do not believe in coincidences. Everything is relative, having a distinct reason and purpose for being. Déjà vu is one of life’s most thought provoking experiences. It makes me feel as though a specific moment from my future life has been recorded and replayed at just the right time in my present life. But how could that be?
The experience envelopes you in a strong sense of familiarity and foreknowledge that you couldn’t possibly have about a time that has yet to occur. Or has it?
In vivid and intricate detail you’re able to recall and feel as if you’ve already lived in that moment. Every touch point of a déjà vu experience, the conversations, sights, smells, and colors seem to be so real and surreal all at the same time. If it’s a memory, from what timeframe does it emanate?
Is it a trick of the mind? Maybe. Or is it something other?
I’m quite sure that the scientific community has some plausible explanation for why we have these déjà vu experiences. But I choose to believe that these occurrences may actually be something more meaningful and purposeful.
Sometimes they make me wonder if I could have possibly lived in that moment at some other point in time. And that specific moment, replete with the associated experiential sensations, is now being recalled and brought to my immediate attention again for an express reason.
Maybe it’s for clarification or corrective purposes. Or maybe that particular moment in my life is so significant that it bears repeating and triggers its own replay.

Faith is a spiritual gift. It’s having a blind belief, confidence, and trust in a person, place, or thing without having the tangible proof to support or validate your conviction. Faith is a very distinct part of our daily lives and reality. We exercise our faith, to some degree, in everything that we do. From taking your next breath to relationships to getting on a plane your faith is being actively and spiritually being called upon and utilized. We’re spiritually trusting and believing that everything will be okay as we journey forward on our individual life paths. From faith to faith we grow stronger and more confident in our belief and conviction. Meaning that the same faith we exercise on the little things can also be called upon and applied to the greater things in our lives. Faith is a spiritual seed that grows in steps and stages as we experience challenges, adversity, and triumphs. It’s the ever present hope for things unseen.
If I could delete a memory I’m not sure that I would. Like pieces of a puzzle, all of our memories are integral components towards our emotional, spiritual, and intellectual growth. Those fragmented and composite bits and pieces have shaped and molded the people that we were and the people we are to become. Over the years I’ve often found myself digressing (just a little) and reflecting on some of the more painful or distressing memories that have punctuated my life. However as I’ve matured I’ve come to realize that the life events which incurred those memories have only served to make me that much better and stronger.
Sometimes it may seem as though you just can’t win no matter what you do or how hard you try in life. At every turn you seem to be besieged by the adversities, obstacles, and challenges that permeate and plague your personal life path. You find yourself wondering why these things aren’t happening to Sharon, … Continue reading
