Becoming In Tune With Your Inner Self / Higher Self

How does someone become in tune with their inner selves?

          This can be pretty hard to accomplish at times, because we're so caught up with our false realities of this world. All the technology bombarding us constantly. We cannot get a moments rest from it. So how do you know you need to become in tune with your inner self? There are a few key factors to let you know. Well basically everyone should know themselves spiritually. But if you are at constant odds with yourself this is a key factor. Perhaps you have an addiction problem, depression, anger, emotionally unstable, self doubt, self abuse, self discrimination, etc. Yes some of these problems should be taken to a doctor and addressed accordingly if they are severe. But knowing your inner self can stop these things from taking a hold of your life and controlling you. 

What can your inner self do for you?

          Your inner self or you may also know it as Higher Self can do many beneficial things for you if only you learn to listen to its voice. First of all you will have to take a moment each day to dedicate to silence. How can we expect to hear a small inner voice when we constantly have technology screaming in our ears. You can take this moment of silence and reflection while your driving in your car, on a bathroom break, or any time of the day where you can find a quiet area to sit and relax. You don't have to do anything special. Just sit down and enjoy being by yourself and in the company of yourself. Thoughts will begin to manifest themselves. This is good, just let the thoughts come and go as they please.
          Your inner voice can help by telling you things that are wrong. Perhaps you find yourself in a sticky situation. Your inner voice may be able to help you see a way out of it. It will shed light on the places of your life that seems darkest. The more you listen to your inner self, the more beauty you will end up finding in this sometimes dreary world we live in. The silver linings of life will soon become easier to spot. You will also end up having a fond love for yourself and find the longing to love yourself that so many of us have lost. 

What steps do I take to developing this inner voice?

          Like I said before you have to start with taking yourself away from technology for a period of time each day. You can explore various meditations, listen to calming music, spend time out in nature, etc. One very good way to become in tune with yourself is my writing. This is a technique I began to use from an early age. I was in 6th grade when one of my teachers shared this experiment with us. He said to take a moment each day to sit and write. Even if its just 5 minutes a day. Just sit down with a pen and paper and write until your hand hurts so bad you cannot stand it. You write anything that comes to mind. It will be gibberish at first, but the more you continue without stopping the more you will see. You will realize the words that are coming from your hand are streaming from a spot deep down inside yourself. This is the spot where your inner self resides. The words will slowly turn from gibberish into amazing messages.

          I am sure these tips will help you realize how much you need your inner self. Its that small voice deep down inside that can tell you miraculous things. If you follow these small little tips I am sure you will find yourself becoming more in tune with your inner self or higher self. These tips are intended for beginners. If you would like to know more tips if you are advancing with your inner self or have any questions simply ask. I would love to be of assistance to you.

Thank you very much for reading
Much Love & Light To You

My Journey Into Spiritual Truth

        Witchcraft and Spells are two very controversial subjects. And I will admit its very easy to take them to a bad place. I've lived through this. But let me explain! I'm not bashing "witches" and the craft. Actually I'm taking up for it, which is something I thought I would never do at one point in my life. Let me begin with my my story of what happened to me through the course of my life thus far. 

        When I was a teenager for a short time I was into Paganism and witchcraft. Mainly one of my close friends and I would practice together. My heart was never fully into it at the time but I enjoyed it. At the time I never fully understood why my feelings were so conflicting. Eventually this path led to some dark times in my life, and I always blamed it on the witchcraft and Paganism. But it really wasn't those things. It was how my close friend was doing it. She would often take it to a bad place and didn't even know it. By me practicing with her that bad energy was rubbing off on me. Later as I became an adult and totally stopped all ties with that kind of stuff, I would always find myself drawn to it. On and off throughout my life I would always find myself stumbling across something that would remind me of it. That side of my would always call. At one point it was driving me crazy to ignore it. Soon I would find myself on my true path.

         No I am not a Pagan and yes you could consider some of the things I do "witchcraft", but I don't really see it like that. I'm not doing spells to make someone love me. I would never cast a curse on anyone or do anything for revenge. Actually you shouldn't cast a spell on anyone without their consent, because it will backfire on you. Even good intentions can go wrong. Mainly what I do involves the natural elements around us. Stones, Herbs. Plants, etc. Its these energies that were once seen as the medicines of old. The old healer in the village who everyone would go to if they had an ailment. The wise woman of the forest who people would go to for spiritual help. Yes all of these practices involve nature and the things this earth was blessed with. Modern day medicine is based off the practices of old. Plants offer nutrition and vitamins that can boost your immune system to heal you. Stones in many cultures are use for meditation and cleansing of the body and spirit. These could all be considered forms of magic, spells, and witchcraft. 

        I don't like to label myself. I am simply a Child Of God. I believe in God and accept Jesus. I was never one to go to church all the time, but I read my bible a lot. I pray daily. I believe I have found a good balance in my spirituality. I always try to be calm, and I dislike the way anger and aggression makes me feel. I normally don't openly speak about my beliefs with people and if I do its varied. But I have been feeling the need to share this. Perhaps it will help someone that comes along this post to come into terms with their personal beliefs. If it does I would love to hear from you. Please add your comments below. But if you have anything negative to say then just go somewhere else with it. You're not welcome. Thank you very much for listening. I feel lighter, haha.

Energy All Around Us

       Copyright © 2014 Melody Wilson - All Rights Reserved
          Energy is everywhere at all times. Its in the air, out in the universe, in plants, and even man made items. Energy is also within us! I've always been into Metaphysical topics. As a child I would stare into the sky and watch the clouds or I might stare across the way into a forest or whatever was in the distance. I remember doing this a lot. Most of the time I wouldn't be thinking about anything really. At times I would even be in a trance like state looking at what I was seeing. What was I seeing? Of coarse I saw the objects of the seen world in front of me, but I also saw something else. It was like waves in the air and static like on a TV that has the white noise. I never knew what it was. I even asked some people and they didn't know what I was talking about. My mom would always think that maybe I needed glasses. Later on into adulthood I would find out exactly what I was looking at as a child!

          I was seeing energy floating through the air. How I cam about this knowledge is a long story, but to sum it up... I've found myself on a path of spiritual progression through a wide range of means. But mainly it is through progressing my own abilities as a seer or "psychic". I really dislike the term psychic. It makes you sound like some weirdo on a 1800 number. Anyone can call themselves Psychics so be weary on who you trust in the matters of readings. Anyway, Metaphyiscal teachings led me to find out that many of the things I did as a child could be considered a "gift". But we'll get into those on a later post. Energy can be seen by anyone! Its all a matter of focusing your eyes.

          Here's how you do it. Focus your eyes on something in the distance. It may be a wall, tree, flower, the floor, whatever it is just focus. Make sure you won't be too distracted though. Now focus your eyes on the in between. So you're not looking at the object anymore. Your looking at the space between you and the object. You're looking at the air! You may have to practice this for a while before you can get it down perfectly. But it will get easier with practice. Now that you're looking at the air just watch. You may find your mind not even focusing on anything else in the room. It may even seen like you went into a tunnel like state of vision. You will soon begin to see waves and the white noise that's on a blank TV channel. You might even see glistening spec that almost look like stars. This is the energy that's around you! Once you see what I just explained you have now successfully saw the invisible energy that is alive in everything!

        The picture about is of a yellow poplar tree in my front yard. I took this picture with a regular setting on a day when I felt the energy levels were at a high. I then zoomed in on the picture with my camera and noticed the bluish light around the limbs of the tree. You will even see a blur around the tree and leaves. This is the white colored energy. So in this picture you're seeing the natural energy of a tree that looks blue and whitish.

          The picture to the left isn't as prominent as the first one, but near the right of the portable speakers and glasses under the remotes you will see the blue color again. This is the energy of the remotes and speakers working. Its amazing isn't it?!

        I hope you enjoyed this post. If you have any pictures of information to add about this natural energy please do so in the comments below! I would love to hear your thoughts on the matter. Thank you for reading! Have a blessed day!

Much Love and Light! Melody

Nature Infused Jewelry

As you may know I co-own two online shops with my fiance, Dwayne. One of those shops we sell handcrafted one of a kind jewelry. That shop is called Moonlight Jewelers. The shop is through a website called Etsy where many people sell handmade and vintage items and supplies. Through my travels on that website I've found some really amazing items. Some shops on there blow my mind away with the things people can create! This article is about an online shop owned and managed by my friend Whitney of the CraneGoose shop on Etsy.

This is Whitney her beautiful nature comes out in each of her pieces of jewelry. I got the pleasure of doing some business with her. I received a bangle style bracelet with bells and crystals hanging off. Around the entire bracelet wrapped with copper wire was faux leafy vines. The closure was wire wrapped. The bracelet is stunning and as the appearance of dew drop morning leaves. I also received a pair of dangle cuff earrings with a gemstone hanging from the bottom. That also has a leafy vine running through it. I am in love with earthy items and I am inspired by magic and fantasy. As many of you know I am also a writer and these types of items look like something that sprang straight out of one of my books. Below is the interview I had with her. She was very eager to get started!

Can you tell us a little about yourself and your shop?

          I am 24 years old, married, and am an aspiring work-at-home wife. My husband Crane and I don't have any children, but we do have an adorable snow cornsnake named Unicorn. She is full of personality and daintiness, and we love her like family.
          Currently I work part-time in retail, but I plan to eventually work exclusively from home, running this business. My hubby supports me fully in my goals and dreams, and he often offers helpful suggestions and ideas for my shop. He makes an awesome business advisor.
          Both of us us dream of one day travelling all of North America in an RV, in one huge road trip. My hope is that then that day comes, I can continue to bring in an income during our travels with this shop.

        Well, my shop started when I made a couple of flower crowns for myself, and one of my friends really like them and told me I should sell them! So I started making flower crowns and listing them on Etsy. Eventually, as I became inspired by other things, my interest in flower crowns waned and I began making jewelry with a botanical twist instead.
        Every day, I am inspired by materials, color combinations, even music. So many ideas build up in my head that I have to write or draw them down onto a piece of paper. Not every idea is successful, but I have fun trying them out.

          Even though I have ideas written down all over the place, I find that my favorite pieces are things I've created on impulse. With the materials in front of me, and even while in the process of making something else, I'm suddenly overcome with an idea and it has to be made immediately! Like my Gemstone Plant Necklaces. There was no planning for those, they just... happened.
           I also strive to reduce waste and use up as much of my materials as I can, so I save my scraps until I find a way to incorporate them. It also helps me save money by challenging me to use what I have rather than going and buying more and more supplies. I believe that creativity thrives when fed a healthy dose of challenge.

That's amazing what inspirations do you have for your shop, and how would you describe it to a customer?

        I'm inspired by the freshness and vitality of plants. Put a potted plant or a bouquet of flowers in a room, and that room will instantly become a happier, livelier place. Similarly, one would wear my botanical jewelry and feel brighter and better.
        I also love the idea of juxtaposing the delicate appearance of leaves against the hard roughness of natural stones and crystals. Together, I find they play well together. They are both gifts from the earth. I am also deeply intrigued by the metaphysical properties of crystals, and love to incorporate that into my work.
        To a customer, I would describe my items as nature-infused jewelry. I always try to include an earthy element into my jewelry be it crystals, feathers, twigs, acorns, or leaves. No matter what, each one of my pieces will have at least one of these things.

These are some of her items. If you would like to go check out her shop the link is below. Rest assure when you order something from her you will get what you pay for! When I ordered my items they came in the cutest packaging. She really does take her time to present her items so you're happy as soon as you open the envelope!

Stargazing: As Escape From Reality

Copyright © 2014 Melody Wilson All Rights Reserved
          The universe that all life calls home is boundless and beautiful. The wonders that are out there never cease to amaze me. I love taking photos of the night sky. The picture to the left is of the August 2014 Super Moon. The small stars you see around the moon are the actual stars that my camera caught. I simply used a photo editing software to make their light a little brighter for our eyes to see. Of coarse the large star in the top left corner is computer generated, but is still beautiful nonetheless.
          When I first discovered Astrophotography I was completely amazed at how easy it really was to capture these beautiful moments in time. I don't have a camera worth hundreds of dollars. My fiance, Dwayne, got me one a few years back. It was on a super awesome sale for a little over $100. He had a little money left over from college expenses and wanted to do something nice for me. My camera is a Fujifilm Finepix S with 18x optical zoom. I don't have any attachments to increase the lenses for further zoom or nothing. However, as you can see by the photo it does the trick.
          Photos such as the one above are outstanding, because they let us see places that we cannot go as humans. They inspire stories, invoke mystery, and amaze the senses. Even if your not taking pictures of our beautiful night sky you can still see all its wonders with your naked eyes. One good tip when stargazing is to look but try not to completely focus your eyes. When we look directly at something we're using the part of our eyes that are most sensitive to color. However, when we look at something indirectly we're using the part of our eye that's most sensitive to faint light. This is easy simply try looking to one side of the object rather then directly at it.
         So the next time its a clear night try to go outside and see if you can see anything. If you live in an area that has a lot of lights, then chances are you won't see much. But its as easy as taking a ride to a less populated area. Try to get at least 1 mile away from the bright lights of night. You will be amazed at how calming it is. Sure, to some it may sound boring. But that's only because in our lives these days we constantly have things to entertain us. We always have something in our faces telling when to laugh or be sad. Our emotions are beginning to not be our own. Its good to purge ourselves from these things if only for an hour a week. Getting out looking up at the wild yonder above us is the perfect way to calm your mind. There is even free apps for your phones where you can download sky maps. Try using Google Sky Map. That is the best one I've seen so far. Its simple, un-distracting, and easy to use. Now get out there and find something beautiful! Escape from our fake forms of reality and experience the true nature of being human!

Blessings, Light, and Love to you all,
