BE Happy

ara Art-Be-Happy-Wallpaper

BE Happy

For too long we have believed happiness is external.  We will only be happy if our circumstances change, or people behave more appropriately, or if we finally obtain our heart’s desires.  We wonder why it is so hard.  We ask why happiness is so elusive.  In order for true happiness to manifest it must come through us and from us first.  That’s it. That’s all.  We either choose to open our inner door and effuse everything we see, hear, touch, taste and smell with our unbridled joy—or we don’t.  When we rely on external experiences to cause happiness within us the results are mediocre at best.  If we throw open our door of happiness then only happiness will result which changes experiences yet to be realized into happy ones as well.  Then, and only then will happy, external circumstances heighten our already existing happiness. It is counter-productive to rely on them to CAUSE our happiness. It’s just so simple.  BE happy.  BE happy for no apparent reason.  It changes everything. ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium, Author & Spiritual Teacher

Know Self

ara when-you-know-yourself-you-are-empowered-when-you-accept-yourself-you-are-invincible-quote-1

I am ever so grateful to know Self! I have no need to prove who I am to others. I have no need to point fingers and cry foul in my indignation and justification in how others view me. Remember who you are. Love who you are. Let others’ perspectives of you melt away. BE your Self. You are beauty, magnificence, power and love in exquisite motion. ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium, Author, Spiritual Teacher

Spirit Signs

ara signs-from-spirit (1)

Spirit Signs

Many of you have received signs from spirit and are aware that loved ones are eternally with us. Just as many others receive signs and dismiss them as ‘coincidence’. Still others are waiting for their sign they are not alone.

It might help you to understand that our loved ones in spirit have transitioned from physical form to non-physical. They are still the pure energy they were when on this plane just minus the physical body. Given there is not one place where energy is not it stands to reason our loved ones are ever-present, co-existing with us and not somewhere far away.

It is also helpful to know that there is no such thing as ‘coincidence’. A ‘coincidence’ is simply unaware thoughts meeting their manifestation. Therefore, the signs you may be dismissing are actually direct signs from spirit. A sign that lets you know you are not forgotten, still cherished and most of all loved.

Spirit will use the path of least resistance in order to convey their message. In other words, whatever is already around you that can quickly and easily be absorbed into your conscious awareness. Sometimes it is a feather—because birds are in your immediate environment. Sometimes it is a penny or dime—because loose change abounds. Sometimes—it will be an arbitrary call on your phone or lights going on and off. Televisions are known to go on after you shut them off. Electronics can certainly behave erroneously without a seeming cause. Yes, spirit will use whatever is around you to let you know they are still with you.

Often people will dismiss the signs because they believe, or have been told, that sometimes a feather is just a feather, happening upon pennies or dimes is just a coincidence and glitches with electronics are due to faulty wiring or lack of signals. The only way to tell the difference between a spirit sign and ‘common reasoning’ is in the way it makes you feel when the sign is noticed. If you know you have been asking for a sign then it is a sign. If a sign makes you remember a fond memory then it is from spirit. Pay attention to how it all makes you feel instead of allowing your limited belief structure to drive the bus. Be prudent and exhaust all the avenues to debunk the occurrence if you must as that will dispel your doubt. Just remember, there is always more going on than your senses can possibly tell you.

For those of you still waiting to experience a spirit sign take heart. Signs are present virtually in every moment. When the time is perfect your spirit sign will venture into your awareness. Have faith, trust that it can happen and be joyful that it will happen.

Believe. Trust. Most of all, thank your loved ones for letting you know they are not gone. They have not left you alone, abandoned. They walk with you in each moment.

Many of us have had the experience of receiving signs from spirit. I would love to hear what your signs have been. Let’s hear from you! ~Ara Parisien, International Medium, Author, Spiritual Teacher

Food for thought on Affirmations

ara affirmations

Time and time again people ask me about affirmations.  Do they work?  Sure!  They ‘can’ work if your vibrational alignment is in keeping with the words of the affirmation. Saying you are healthy as an affirmation when you are not well typically vetoes any positive result. Why?  Because your vibrational alignment often doesn’t match the words you are speaking.  You can ‘say’ all the right words about being healthy but if your vibration is screaming there is a lack of well being or you ‘really, really want’ to be well then the vibration does not match the affirmation.  Affirmations must be true to you in order for them to wield any power whatsoever.  Start gently.  Perhaps say things like, “I am open to experiencing my wellness’—which typically would be a true statement because you ARE open to it.  You can also try “I am eager to experience my wellness,” which lends itself to an excitement that will lift your vibration to a place where the Universe can respond with a little more of what you desire.  Affirmations are not a quick fix.  Saying them over and over needing them to work is counterproductive. Remember, when the Universe responds it is responding to a vibration—not just nice words. One should always ensure the affirmation is in direct correlation to the truth they perceive within themselves.  When it is in alignment the results are always powerful and more in keeping with what you want. ~  Ara Parisien,International Medium, Author & Spiritual Teacher

Love Each Other

ara love each other 2

It was just two short years ago after my daughter and I watched the news I said to her that the US was gearing up for even more chaos.  I predicted race wars after the newscasts had started subtly introducing ‘racism’ and playing the ‘race card’ each day.  Two years later, here we are.  It is the typical “problem, reaction, solution” being played out before our very eyes.  The masses have been hypnotically conditioned and gently eased into hatred once again.  It plays upon the anger, righteousness and hatred that already exists within each of us and expands it, controls it, and amplifies it until we all cry out for the solution that will make us ‘safe’.  There is absolutely nothing that anyone can offer or do that ever affords the alleged security and safety we demand.  It all comes from ourselves. What is being witnessed  is a direct reflection of our zealousness to prove one another wrong, showcase the shortcomings/differences and beat our fists on others to be heard and agreed with.  Terrorism begins at home.  Your home.  My home.  Our homes.  It begins with anger, animosity and aggravation towards anything that we perceive not to be in alignment with ourselves.  Children are not ‘haters’ by nature.  They are taught and conditioned by their parents, grandparents, ancestral teachings and the media.  It is ludicrous to me that skin colour is even an issue.  Considering each and every one of us is scientifically empty space we need to be more cognizant of what we are fighting for or against!  And speaking of fighting against—whatever you push against, say ‘no’ to, and rally vociferously about when it comes to what you don’t want only makes more of it.  And it is that premise that is played upon and encouraged.  The moment anger and hatred rear their heads we are able to see just what is within ourselves that needs attention and healing. It isn’t just ONE person that is the cause.  It is the many who prey upon, rely on and toy with the facets of ourselves that have yet to be healed.  Those in the know, ‘know’.  It is about all of us.  Clean up your own inner backyard.  It would be a marvelous world if we all did just that. And Love one other—not just when it is easy to do so because you deem someone worthy of it.  Love one another–no matter what.~ Ara Parisien, International Medium, Spiritual Teacher & Author

Tools

ara loved ones in spirit

Mediumship is a tool that can assist you on your life journey.  It is one of many tools.  Grief, a powerful catalyst, is actually the acknowledgment of a greater part of yourself rising to the surface for your attention.  From the moment a diagnosis was made, or tragic news was delivered, you expanded energetically into more than you ever thought you could be.  Mediumship offers the evidence of life-after-life, that we do not die and love is still reciprocated between the veil.  This helps you to heal and step into the you that you came here to be.  Factor in the wisdom of the Council of 12 as channeled by Ara and you have a powerful force in assisting you to pick up the pieces, see through new eyes, feel with a new heart and take your life by the horns and direct it in a way that is more appropriate for you.  You are not alone on your journey or in your pain. There is always a way to uplift into the life you came here to live. ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium, Spiritual Teacher & Author

Bliss

ara bliss

Joseph Campbell once asked as all to “Follow your bliss”.

There was a time when I thought I understood what he was saying.

Then there was the day I absolutely lived what he was saying.

Bliss is something unmistakable. It fills you up inside and exudes an unfathomable power.

Most people believe that bliss is attainable only when one has garnered their heart’s desires. Or, if people around you behave in a way that is appropriate for your own comfort and in alignment with your own beliefs. As the Council of 12 has often said, “You all live it backwards.”

Bliss is a state of being. A state of being that bubbles up from the eternity you have always been and touches everything in you, around you, by you and for you. Bliss changes you in the blink of an eye.

Bliss is a state by which unconditional love flows purely, pristinely and powerfully. There are no conditions that enter into its flow. Suddenly, you love everything your five sense can discern. The trees, the flowers, the cars, the air, your life, yourself, everyone you know and even those you do not.

Bliss. If you think you know what it is then you have not experienced it as of yet. Once you have you will never find a need within you to be ‘right’, to be ‘better’ or to make demands of others. You will spontaneously feel with a new heart, perceive with new eyes and engage in a new way—a reverent way just because you are in sheer awe of the magnificence.

Bliss. It is unconditional love of All There Is. When you have tasted bliss you will want to feel nothing else but more of it. ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium, Spiritual Teacher & Author
