As many new projects have come full circle and they are finally coming into existence, I have reached an exciting point in my career. My new book, My Life With Robin (How My Spirit Guide Saved My Life), will be available in less than two weeks. I am overjoyed with happiness. The book details my life and how my spiritual gifts helped me rise above all kinds of obstacles. Many people might think that the fact that I am in a wheelchair is the biggest obstacle I have had to face, although really, the wheelchair is just an extension of myself and has served as a blessing throughout my life rather than a hardship. The book also details my first true love experience and how to find the positive in the bleakest of situations. Despite my difficult past, I am forever grateful for it, because it has shaped who I am today and made for a very interesting book. One of the most important reasons, I believe, we are put on the planet is to teach one another and help others through this journey we call life. I was recently reminded of the importance of sharing knowledge when I attended a Kabbalah class in Miami. The rabbi who was teaching the class, told such an interesting story, I just had to share it with all of you.
He said that a friend of his called him up one day and was terribly upset because he was walking down the street in New York City, and some guy just came up to him and smacked him in the face. Needless to say, the man was angry, saying to the rabbi that he had done absolutely nothing to this man, and after taking a moment to think, the rabbi replied, “Well, maybe you got off lucky.” To which the man replied, “What? I was just minding my own business!” And the rabbi went on to explain, “Perhaps you deserve the smack for something you had done in a past life. What if, in a past life, you had killed his brother or something? It’s a perfect opportunity to learn to turn the other cheek and to thank God that you suffered no other harm.” The rabbi went on to explain, “This does not mean that you find the man and further question him about his actions, but take the incident as a consideration that we all commit sin and hurt one another, often unintentionally, all the time. So, this incident was really a lesson in humility, and one of the most important principles taught in Kabbalah, is that without suffering there can be no growth.”
To further illustrate the concept of embracing suffering, or committing sacrifice for spiritual growth is this quote that I heard while watching Dr. Wayne Dyer’s film, “The Shift.” The sun has shed light on the earth since the beginning of time, giving up its own energy to illuminate our planet, while never once asking the earth what it has done for it in return. Imagine the kind of world we could have if we spread love like that? In the darkest places, light could illuminate anything and everything, bringing a brighter future for everyone. No matter what we learn along the way, if we do not share it, we are keeping the light for ourselves, and eventually, that light could go out, because we are social beings who need interaction to survive. I know that many of you have a book inside of you that needs to be written. We all have a story with good and bad, happiness and sadness, the universe works in a cause-and-effect fashion. If you make an effort to tell that story, any way that works for you, in the end, I guarantee that you will receive many more blessings because you will be fulfilling part of your life-driven purpose. Teaching what you learn along the way can help you remember these lessons and possibly prevent others from suffering in the same way.
One of the other avenues that I have decided to take my career in, is to offer intuitive coaching services. This involves weekly or monthly sessions with clients helping them discover their purpose, reach their dreams, or gain greater understanding of their spiritual paths. I love this aspect of my practice because it has allowed me to work with all sorts of individuals, from businessmen looking to gain insight into which business deals to make, to women and men who are looking to increase their spiritual awareness or psychic ability, and I coach them based on their individual needs and goals. As I do this work, I am able to give them some of my energy and light to help illuminate their dreams, lighting the path to making them a reality. We all have light inside of us, so look within yourself, find your light and in whatever way you can, share it, because that is the easiest and best way to better your life as well as someone else’s.
