Inspiring Authors Message

Author, Randi G. Fine 

Living Life to the Fullest

Inspirational Author’s Message

The most difficult people in our lives end up being our greatest teachers.   The hurdles they place before us and the challenges they present to us are only lessons that we must learn for our greater good.   Think of the oyster…without the irritating grain of sand there would be no pearl. ~ Randi G. Fine

We all experience times of joy and times of suffering as we move through our lives. Life is a breeze during the happy times; we get to sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. But we must ask ourselves how good joy would feel if we had no adversity to contrast it? The phrase, “nobody said life was easy,” was coined with good reason. The truth is, life is hard work…but the beauty of life is that it has many facets.  We are constantly challenged to learn and grow.  And as we rise to those challenges we become stronger, wiser and better human beings. The universe holds all the answers we will ever need. It’s all there for the taking if we watch, listen, and trust our intuition. I invite you to follow me on my journey as I explore the many paths to happiness, and the many avenues that will lead us to living life to the fullest. I wish you serenity and joy in your life. ~ Randi

Loved One Beyond Sends Hopeful Message

Hopeful Messages From the Afterlife

Article Written by Randi G. Fine

As I stated in my article, Is There Life After Death, for many years I have had an insatiable curiosity about the infinitive properties of consciousness. That curiosity has led me to fill my personal library with books written by noted, and in some cases scientifically tested, psychic mediums such as John Edward, James Van Praagh, the late Sylvia Browne, and George Anderson.  I have seen three of them, as well as psychic medium Lisa Williams  and Brian L. Weiss, M.D., author of Many Lives, Many Masters, speak live and in person. I have had several mediums on my radio show, A Fine Time for Healing, including my fabulous monthly guest Spiritual Medium Laura Lee.

There are several intriguing accounts of the life after life phenomenon in books that I have read such as near death survivors Betty Eade’s Embraced by the Light, and Paul Perry’s Saved by the Light.  I have read fascinating, eye opening books written by respected physicians Raymond Moody, M.D., the world’s leading authority in the field of near death experiences, and Elisabeth Kubler Ross, M.D., a pioneer in near death studies.  My bibliography could go on and on. My belief is unshakeable.james van praagh6

I preface this article with these references primarily to suggest that my investigation into the life after death phenomenon is fairly extensive.  Not only have I read more books than I can recall on this controversial subject matter and witnessed a plethora of evidence through others before my very eyes, I have also had a few undeniable experiences myself.

The phenomenon that I am referring to is not ghostly or ghoulish. Most often these are loving experiences, not frightening ones.  Our loved ones on the other side do not want us to be fearful; they come out of a love that is purer than we can ever begin to grasp.

In one of my own experiences, in addition to the messages lovingly meant for me, I was given an important message to pass on to someone else.  That “someone else,” the spirit’s parents, were as far removed as one can get from even the tiniest inkling of the concept I was about to share with them.

The dilemma weighed on me. Many questions ran through my mind. “How am I going to deliver this message to those who lacked belief, who I was sure could not conceive of what I was to tell them?  Was it cruel to pass this message on to parents who were grieving the finality of the loss of their child? How would I present the difficult but important message that I had been entrusted with? Would they receive it with anger, resentment, pain, or distrust?  Would they embrace me as a loving messenger, sink deeper into despair, or never speak to me again?”pensive_woman

I wrestled with these questions for a few days, my conscience torn between the possibility of hurting someone deeply, of appearing like I had lost my mind, and the responsibility I felt to fulfill this loving request from the beyond.

My spiritual friend had gone to great lengths to prove his existence and to assure my belief in his authenticity. Though I wasn’t ready—I could never be prepared for something like that–there was only one acceptable answer to my conundrum.  Though I may have not personally understood the importance of his message, I had to trust the sender’s intentions in reaching his loved ones.  That would take a giant leap of faith on my part.

To be as effective as possible, I felt that the message delivery must be done face to face with his parents.  I conjured up a believable pretense for my need to see them, then I made the telephone call and scheduled a time to visit.

Upon my arrival on the day of the visit, I sat down with his parents on the sofa in their apartment and we had a lovely chat. During the course of the conversation I gently eased into the delivery of the bomb I believed I was about to drop on them. I slowly began revealing the details of my odd but profound experience.old lady

As his mother focused her attention on my words, her eyes got wider and wider.  She asked me many questions, trying hard to comprehend the largely inconceivable concept of talking with “dead people.”

I explained that her son, as well as two of her other loved ones who had passed on, were very concerned about her state of mind. They knew, just as I had known, that she had slumped into a long-term depression and given up her will to live. I explained that they had been trying to reach her and get her attention, but had been unable to.

She was surprisingly receptive and open to the news; though I am not sure how much she understood. But that did not matter. She seemed happy with our conversation and I was more than relieved to leave the visit on a high note.

As I share this experience with you today, I wish I could report that this story had a dramatic, earth-shattering ending. I cannot. But maybe somewhere down the line it will, then again maybe it will not. But that is irrelevant. We are all called on to be messengers of sorts many times throughout our lives; sometimes consciously, sometimes not. And messages of hope and love should always prompt a call to duty, no matter how uncomfortable we may find them. We may never know the serendipitous domino effects of our actions and reactions in life. All we can do is trust in these loving messages and act on them as we are asked to.

fb182

Our loved ones who have passed on want us to know that they are very much alive and happy. They want us to know that they that they love us and are always with us, so acknowledge their presence.  Give them the most beautiful gift you can; let them know that you have moved on with your life and are doing fine.  When our loved ones know we are happy, they are at peace.

Our loved ones on the other side know with certainty something that many of us in the physical world remain uncertain of. They know that they will be joyously reunited with us before long, and that there is, without a shadow of a doubt, life after death.

angelsAn Invitation to Love

A Daily OM Article by Madisyn Taylor

A meditation with your angels can provide a new gentleness into your normal meditation routine.

Though your host of spirit guides encompasses many diverse beings, all of which willingly watch over you, meditating with angels can be a uniquely insightful experience. The angels stationed at your side are both powerful and knowledgeable—they possess a limitless understanding of your needs and desires, your strengths and weaknesses, and your purpose. However, angels take an active part in our lives only when invited to do so. Meditation allows you to make contact with your angels and lovingly request that they participate actively in your day-to-day life.

To begin, retreat to a solitary place where you won’t be distracted by concerns. Incense and candlelight may aid you in achieving a meditative state but are not necessary. However, laying an image of an angel, angel statue, or item symbolizing your angels before you can focus your thoughts. Sit comfortably, breathe deeply, and let yourself relax. When you feel peaceful, invite your angels from the highest of light to sit with you as you meditate. Mentally repeat your request and reiterate that this time together is important to you. Then, in your mind’s eye, visualize a bright-white light floating above you. As you breathe, draw this light first into the crown of your head and then into the whole of your physical self. Allow this light to spread through your arms and hands, your core, and your lower body. Repeat this integration of illumination with a violet light.

Once again, ask your angels to be with you. Let the stillness surrounding you enter your soul, and open your heart to your angel guides. If they wish to communicate a message, they will do so now. Allow them to wrap their wings around you and infuse you with their bountiful love. Breathe them in as you did the light. As the meditation draws to a close, you may feel a presence, fluttering wings, or billowing fabric, or you may see an angel in your mind’s eye. Thank them for providing you with love and light, and being with you as you meditated. If you don’t sense or feel anything, there is no cause for worry—you can be certain your angels are with you. Don’t be surprised if you start to see signs throughout the day that your angels are near, perhaps a feather at your doorstep. As you practice this meditation, you will become increasingly adept at recognizing when your angels are near and sensing their presence.

Inspirational Quote About Truth, Perception and Intuition

Words of Wisdom by Randi G. Fine

Always look deeper…beyond what you see is what is real. ~Randi G. Fine~

We have all heard the expression, “What you see is what you get,” meaning that the person saying it is honest, upfront and has no hidden agenda. In that context the idiom may be true. However, though it may seem so, that statement does not actually apply to life as most of us perceive it.

We cannot trust the limitations of the perception of our five senses. When we learn to look deeper, to trust our intuitions, our subtle senses, we are likely to arrive closer to truth than if we do not.

4 Signs That You Have Reincarnated

4 Signs That This Isn’t Your First Life On Earth

Written by Steven Bancarz, the Creator of Spirit Science And Metaphysics

Reincarnation is the spiritual belief that souls leave the body at the death of the physical body and the re-enter another physical body after spending a brief time in the spirit world.  Some people come back to alleviate Karma, some come back for the purpose of further developing their souls, and some come back for the purpose of service and helping others evolve.  There is an overwhelming amount of scientific evidence for the existence for reincarnation, some of which is summarized in an article I wrote here.reincarnation2.jpg7

How can you tell if you have lived before in the past?  There are different ways you can tell if you have lived on earth before.  You can visit a hypnotherapist and receive a past-life regression, you can meditate and feel that you have lived before intuitively, or you can reflect on some of the characteristics you have as a person and see if they imply you may have lived before.

It’s certainly the case that you may have lived before and do not possess these characteristics, but here are 5 that I think are pretty universal and indicative of an old soul.  Here are 4 signs this isn’t your first life on earth:

1) You Get A Good Read On People

From a young age, you have been able to get a really good read on people.  From watching someone interact for just a few minutes, you are able to identify the characteristics that person would have and the lifestyle they live.  It’s almost like you have this software that allows you to look around and download the information on other souls.  This is because you have seen the archetype of that person before in a past life and are familiar with the general behaviour and psychology of that archetype.  You have interacted with thousands of people throughout the course of your souls history, so there is really no archetype you haven’t interacted with yet.intuition1

This doesn’t mean you are judgmental, it just means you are observational.  You may find yourself at parties or social gatherings looking around every once in a while checking things out.  Watching people interact, observing the exchanges of energy that are occurring during conversation.  You may even feel more comfortable as a distant observer than as a participant.  It feels natural to you.

Having the ability to get a good read on people has also given you a really good bullsh*t detector.  When someone is lying to you, you know it.  You notice the disassociation in their eyes, the shift in their energy field, the change in the way they pronounce words.  You’ve been through this place many times before, so you aren’t socially naive, even though you may have not had much social interaction in this life.  You’ve always been hard to manipulate because you can see into the real intentions and desires of other people.  You are just good at feeling people out intuitively.

2) You Enjoy Isolation

You enjoy time to yourself.  Not because you like being lonely, but because you like being alone.  You are content with just being by yourself.  You would rather been on a dock by yourself all night under the stars than at a party somewhere, and you would rather be in a forest alone all day than at a shopping mall.  This is not because you are a hermit, but because you don’t need society in order to validate your sense of self.  Your own worth comes from your relationship with yourself and your spirituality, not from peer-approval and social acceptance.alone

When you are thrown into this world for the first time, your inclination is to learn how to play the game and make a comfortable life for yourself.  When you have been here many times before, you already know it’s a game, so you don’t even bother trying to play it anymore.

You may still like to go out and be social, but it doesn’t serve you in the same way it does for others.  You are used to being around other people, and have been for centuries.  You know what to expect.  At the end of the day, the most satisfying thing for you is feeling peace within yourself, generated from within yourself.   This leads into our next point.

3) You Don’t Fit In…You REALLY Don’t Fit In.

You stick out like a sore thumb wherever you go.  School, work, family gatherings.   You’re whole life, you have always felt a little out of place.  Being human is still something you’re getting used to, and may never get used to.  Behaving “properly” in public seems forced for you, and trying to maintain a meaningless conversation is painful for you. You don’t quite understand why humans operate the way they do.

It’s kind of like being a lion who thinks he is a sheep his whole life.  He behaves like a sheep and thinks like a sheep.  After living a few lives pretending to be a sheep, he realizes he is something much more than that.  He discovers himself and transcends his sheep-hood.  When he goes back in to life again pretending to be a sheep, it feels unnatural for him because now he is just role playing.

You’re the one who will start a discussion about things like lucid dreams, animal rights, and spirituality while everyone else wants to talk weather and sports.  They’ll sometimes initiate the conversations because they are interested or intrigued with you, but most of the time it’s you who will break the film of social convention.  But it’s not only a difference in interests that makes you stick out.goldfish jumping out of the water

It’s most importantly the fact that you don’t really know how to fit in.  Maybe you have tried before, and it felt awkward and failed.  And that’s OK.  You don’t understand how some people are happy as carbon copies, and it’s unnatural to you to be conventional.  You may do things that other people will call “weird” such as meditate on a bench in public somewhere, or maybe you’ll stop yourself in the parking lot to soak up the sun rays.  You have more “quirks” than the average person, not because you are trying to be different, but because you don’t know how to be “normal”.

4) You Have An Evolved Soul

People may come to you to seek advice, even though you may be younger than them by decades.  They value your inputs because you have a good deal of insight and wisdom for your age.  Without getting egoic about it, you seem to have more understanding and a more universal outlook to life’s challenges than the average person.  Perhaps this is why you are here: to help others reach that same place.

You’ve lived a few lives here, so you understand the importance of things like patience, self-honesty, and introspection.  What takes some people 10 years to learn it may only take you 1 year to learn because your soul has already went through this before and is used to recognizing the signs. Having “heart to hearts” with someone who is struggling seems natural to you, because you are almost always able to assist them with what they are going through.  You will still encounter your own adversity in life, but you approach it with maturity and level-headedness.  You are a quick learner when it comes to the lessons of life, and you are very good at listening to what life is trying to show you about yourself.evolved soul

And quite frankly, it’s acquiring more wisdom and experience that you value the most in life.  You aren’t really concerned with social status, fame, or making a nice cozy nest for yourself.  You desire to grow spiritually, to evolve into a better person, and to help other people do the same.  This feels most natural and rewarding to you.

There are of course many more characteristics of people who have lived on earth before, but I think these are some of the most prevalent ones.  If there are any I missed, let me know in the comments!

Here is a video of a 9 year old who is way beyond his years.  This is a perfect example of someone who has lived here at least once before:

Inspired by Life

Article Written by Randi G. Fine

Article Originally Published on Life As A Human on January 17, 2013

If I was asked to name all the things that inspire me, love, generosity, spirituality, and kindness would rank high on my list. I consider them fundamental to my happiness.

I am also inspired by beauty—a beautiful sunset, the innocence of children, flowers, and all of God’s amazing creatures. Wisdom shared and growth oriented books inspire my intellect. I rarely read fiction or novels because they contribute very little to my personal growth.

But there is one form of inspiration that brings every day of my life to completion–creative expression. I thrive on it. Creativity flows through my veins. It is my nature—it is who I am, who I have always been.

I begin each day with the compulsion to express myself artistically. Excitement over what I will create in my waking hours gets me out of bed each morning.

I come from a highly creative lineage of artists, musicians, and writers. Each of us has varying abilities and a unique combination of talent.

Musicians abound in my family. Having grown up surrounded by music, it naturally played a major role in my young life. Without any formal training I played piano and guitar, sang, and composed several songs.

Over the years, for a variety of reasons, music has been relegated to the back burner. Other creative outlets have taken its place.

In 2009, practically out of the blue, I felt compelled to write a book about my life. It was an urge completely out of character for me. I did not know the first thing about writing nor did I ever enjoy the craft.

For some reason I was undeterred. My intuition told me to forge ahead with the project and I listened.

Before I knew it the writing bug bit me. I realized how much I loved the craft and discovered that I actually had some talent. I started writing and never stopped.

Though I added writing as a creative outlet it did not overshadow my passion for art. There is something magical about an intangible vision materializing into tangible form.

My preferred medium has changed over the years. Jewelry artistry is my current mode of expression. I have also turned it into a business.

The drive to express myself creatively dates back to my childhood. I do not remember ever being bored. I had very few toys, though I did not need or miss them. My imagination always occupied me.

I had a set of multicolored blocks in different shapes that I would arrange in various patterns. That activity kept me intrigued for hours.

It probably sounds strange but sometimes I played with dry beans on the kitchen table. Their variance in color and shape leant well to mosaic design.

My most favorite activity was one ingeniously created by my grandmother. She would give me a bucket of water and a wide paint brush, and then let me “paint” the wall of her back porch. The grey wood shingles darkened when water was brushed over them. It was so much fun—I could paint that wall all day.

My kids like to tease me about “playing with beans” as a child. What they do not realize is that it was the creative stimulation in my childhood that got them “A pluses” on every school project I completed for them.

The creative gene has passed on to my children. On and off through the years they have each expressed their creativity through music, art, and writing. Still they are well-rounded. They focused much more on academics than I ever did. I am prideful—that is a balance I never managed to achieve.

Our children may grow up in a fast-paced world of computers and instant gratification, but we would do them a great disservice if we do not teach them to find inspiration in life’s simpler things. After all, our children are the creative generation of the future—the artists, musicians, and writers.

The beauty of life will always inspire when we allow ourselves the time to enjoy it. And we need only go within to discover the infinite wealth of inspiration that is always there for us. That is what we should teach our children.

Curing Cancer Gently and Naturally

Cancer: Your Body Your Choice

Written by Randi G. Fine

Through the years I have had minimal success with traditional, Allopathic medicine, so for most of my life I have sought out alternative, holistic therapies for healing my body and maintaining my wellness. I have achieved phenomenal results for my health related issues from Acupuncture treatments, Chinese medicine, Osteopathic manipulations, meditation and a healthy lifestyle.

Fortunately, thus far, I have never had a personal encounter with a disease such as cancer. I do not know exactly what to attribute that good fortune to; whether genetics or conscientious health maintenance. I have however experienced cancer through loved ones and some of the hospice patients I have seen through years of volunteering. It is a devastating process to watch.

After giving a great deal of thought as to how I would proceed if given a future diagnosis of cancer, I can say for certain that I will never submit my body to chemotherapy.cancer5 It is a deadly poison, falsely promoted by pharmaceutical companies and the majority of Oncologists as a remedy (but not cure) for cancer. Granted, besides radiation and radical surgery, chemo is the only “remedy” that traditional cancer doctors currently have at their disposal. But various polls have shown that the majority of doctors would refuse chemotherapy for themselves and their families if given other options.

In the article 75% of Physicians in the World Refuse Chemotherapy for Themselves the author S.D. Wells states the following:

“Research using polls and questionnaires continue to show that 3 of every 4 doctors and scientists would refuse chemotherapy for themselves due to its devastating effects on the entire body and the immune system, and because of its extremely low success rate. On top of that, only 2 to 4% of all cancers even respond to chemotherapy or prove to be “life extending,” yet it is prescribed across the board for just about every kind of cancer. Polls were taken by accomplished scientists at the McGill Cancer Center from 118 doctors who are all experts on cancer. They asked the doctors to imagine they had cancer and to choose from six different “experimental” therapies. These doctors not only denied chemo choices, but they said they wouldn’t allow their family members to go through the process either! What does that say about their true opinion of this archaic method?”

I have read these facts before in various publications, yet every time I do I find them just as startling and alarming. The good news is that there is a wealth of information and resources to guide us through the process of naturally, gently curing cancer should we be confronted with that diagnosis.cancer6

Yes, it is true; cancer is curable. The pharmaceutical companies do not want us to know that because chemotherapy drugs make them a lot of money. I wonder if those responsible for turning a blind eye to the truth have seriously considered the number of people who will die or have died from cancer, or if the billions of dollars they make each year off the sales of cancer drugs somehow justifies that reality. If so, I do not know how they sleep at night. This year in America alone about 564,800 are expected to die of cancer—more than 1,500 people a day.

The public keeps donating their hard earned money to foundations and scientific institutions, desperately hoping a cure for cancer will be found when in actuality the cure has already been found. Where is all the donation money going?  What will it take for the drug companies and the FDA to finally admit the truth?

Knowing that alternatives exist in the treatment of cancer is one thing, but unfortunately when confronted with the “C” word many people panic. They turn to their doctors for advice, who will then refer them to a medical cancer specialist (Oncologist) for a treatment plan. Uneducated about the disease, shocked, frightened and desperate, the patient puts his trust in the Oncologist and then follows whatever advice he is given. The average person does not know what else to do. No one wants chemotherapy, but when it is recommended many feel they have no other option.

The first and most important thing to do when confronted with cancer or the suspicion of cancer7it is to not be rushed into making any decision; not even a biopsy. There is some evidence that once the encapsulated tumor is punctured, the risk of the cancer cells spreading may be increased. (Read Dr. Mercola’s article Cancer Trials Can Lack Clear Information on Biopsies) It is your body and you have to live with the consequences, not the doctor.

Understand that you do have options – explore all of them. Research. Do your homework.

I know of two experts who have substantial track records with successfully and competently guiding others through the process of naturally healing cancer. They are definitely worth checking out. I am sure there are many other qualified experts so please do your own research.

The first recommended resource is Bill Henderson, cancer coach. His website is http://www.beating-cancer-gently.com. I highly recommend that you read his eye-opening book, Cancer Free: Your Guide to Gentle Non-Toxic Healing.  Listen to the interview I did with Bill on my radio show, A Fine Time for Healing, where you can hear Bill cover a wealth of information about curing cancer in clear, concise ways that make sense to the average person.

The second resource I recommend is someone whom I recently met. Her name is Jean Sumner, cancer survivor and co-founder of World Wellness Education. Her website is http://www.worldwellnesseducation.org. Jean pursued alternative methods for treating her “incurable” cancer and completely cured herself. Now she guides others toward healing through nutrition, spirituality and exercise. Her mission is, “Teaching the world about wellness — one story at a time.”

I have recently stumbled upon Dr. Joseph Mercola online, and read many of his fabulous articles on alternative cancer treatments.  Dr. Mercola is an Osteopathic Physician, board-certified in family medicine who is trained in both traditional and natural medicine. He is an author of two books, as well as a recipient of several awards given to him for his innovations and contributions to holistic medicine and health journalism.  His website is http://www.drmercola.com/cancer8

In his article, “We Don’t Have a Cure for Cancer Yet – Or Do We?”, Dr. Mercola recommends the following list to get you started on a cancer prevention plan.

  1. Normalize your vitamin D levels with safe amounts of sun exposure. This works primarily by optimizing your vitamin D level. Ideally, monitor your vitamin D levels throughout the year.
  2. Control your insulin levels by limiting your intake of processed foods and sugars/fructose as much as possible.
  3. Get appropriate amounts of animal-based omega-3 fats.
  4. Get appropriate exercise. One of the primary reasons exercise works is that it drives your insulin levels down. Controlling insulin levels is one of the most powerful ways to reduce your cancer risks.
  5. Eat according to your nutritional type. The potent anti-cancer effects of this principle are very much under-appreciated. When we treat cancer patients in our clinic this is one of the most powerful anti-cancer strategies we have.
  6. Have a tool to permanently erase the neurological short-circuiting that can activate cancer genes. Even the CDC states that 85 percent of disease is caused by emotions. It is likely that this factor may be more important than all the other physical ones listed here, so make sure this is addressed. My particular favorite tool for this purpose, as you may know, is the Emotional Freedom Technique.
  7. Only 25 percent of people eat enough vegetables, so by all means eat as many vegetables as you are comfortable with. Ideally, they should be fresh and organic. Cruciferous vegetables in particular have been identified as having potent anti-cancer properties. Remember that carb nutritional types may need up to 300 percent more vegetables than protein nutritional types.
  8. Maintain an ideal body weight.
  9. Get enough high-quality sleep.
  10. Reduce your exposure to environmental toxins like pesticides, household chemical cleaners, synthetic air fresheners and air pollution.
  11. Reduce your use of cell phones and other wireless technologies, and implement as many safety strategies as possible if/when you cannot avoid their use.
  12. Boil, poach or steam your foods, rather than frying or charbroiling them.

I am not a cancer expert nor am I a licensed medical practitioner, so I can not offer you any specific advice on how to heal from cancer. I admit that I have never tried any of the methods of curing cancer suggested by the experts I have recommended. cancer9I am just someone who believes in holistic healing after having experienced its incomparable results for most of my life. I am also someone who practices natural, preventative medicine on a regular basis.

When I learn something I feel compelled to share it.  The recommendations of the above experts make perfect sense to me; much more sense than taking poison that destroys our immune systems and forever ruins our bodies.

I hope you found this information as helpful as I have. I know, without a doubt, which direction I will turn if ever faced with a cancer threat or diagnosis. It is my hope that you will be able to make an educated decision now as well.
