Deliberate Joy

ara-delierate-joy

I loved waking up this morning to the sound of rolling thunder!  As I strolled into my office with my mug of steaming hot coffee a flash of distant lightning caught my eye.  For some reason thunderstorms ignite something in me that makes me absolutely giddy with delight.  As I readied myself for my morning commune with my Council of 12 I realized there was something more glorious to this particular day.  I was filled with a sense of joyful anticipation and wondered what on earth could be signaling imminent  manifestation.  To my surprise the Council of 12 responded with one word, “Life”.  I pondered this for a  moment and realized the reminder they were intent on delivering—everyday should offer this excitement, eagerness and anticipation.  It’s who we are.  The sense of knowing we have yet another moment to prefer, to choose, to focus and thereby unfold.  As I allowed this reminder to flood my conscious awareness they offered more.  “You do not need an external reason to feel this way.  If you did you would be a reactionary creator being and not a conscious deliberate creator.  Enough of what you least want is created in every moment just by your reaction to what your external circumstances dictate.  This is not joy.  This is not who you are.  This is why it never feels good. Be joyful in the knowledge that the river of life is you; is your breath; is your power, which is your focus; is your thrill, and your experience of this lifetime. Live this totality of you and cherish each moment knowing that each moment has the potential to be just the way you want it to be.”  Yes.  Yes, was the only word I could find that fit the moment.  The Council of 12 rippled the resonation, “Deliberately and consciously saying ‘yes’ to Life is enough as it will deliberately open the door to your joy.”  I love my life.  ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium & Spiritual Teacher

Your Future is Now

 

future1

Time and time again I hear people say, “If it is meant to be it will be.”  To me, this is giving your power over to fate to decide the outcome.  The results you realize could not be any other way than how you had been thinking and feeling about the subject all along.  End of.

There is only Now.  If you are despairing something in your past—you are doing it Now.  If you are worried about your future—you are doing it Now.  Know that whatever you are thinking and feeling Now you are actually forging your future to open to those possibilities.  When you live deliberately and consciously in the Now you are carving out best case scenarios and walking into them.  There would be no surprises. There couldn’t be.

Make Now the best it can be.  Keep excitedly focused on the results you prefer. Your future—is right Now. ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium & Spiritual Teacher

Fall

Ara Fall-Tree-HD-Wallpaper

Fall is almost upon us and I couldn’t be happier about that! It’s my favourite season! As the seasonal clock begins to click over I am now turning my mind to how I may best be of service through the Fall and Winter months. Group sessions are very popular and so I will be setting some time aside specifically for them. These sessions tend to book extraordinarily fast so be sure to book yours early!  These group sessions are very healing and a lot of fun for everyone.  Spirit messages and/or life guidance is given to each participant.  Please keep in mind that a minimum of 6 participants are preferred simply because if there are less people then more time is taken and more in-depth information is conveyed.  Often it is this in-depth information that people prefer not to share in front of others.  I will be offering something new this year and that is group sessions via skype so it doesn’t matter where in the world your group resides you will be able to participate! Group Sessions always prove to be uplifting, empowering and entirely loving.

Also being planned at this time is an event in September or October where I will offer a mediumship demonstration.  These kinds of events are very dear to my heart and offer a broader perspective as to how Spirit works and touches hearts.

If you are at all hoping for a workshop or event featuring life transformation I am excited to announce that this is in the cards this Fall/Winter as well.  I will be sharing more information on this aspect as progress dictates.

That is the update at this point!  Please email me on Facebook or send an email to araparisien@gmail.com for  more information regarding group sessions or individual sessions.  Once again, it doesn’t matter where you are in the world—if you can speak English you have access to all of the work I offer.  I look forward to hearing from you!

Get Your JOY on!

ara joy dd0ba24662057592c8b6507f3a342be8

It’s been almost 10 days since I have returned from my cruise to Alaska and I must say I am still feeling the joy!  I fully expected to feel it wane and ebb but it hasn’t.  It’s fascinating to me that joy is the dominant vibration no matter what is going on around me.  A definite shift has occurred – one that I had obviously been working towards.  The epiphany I experienced was real, visceral and powerful.   More importantly it served to completely shift paradigms, re-ignited my enthusiasm, bolstered my passion, gave clarity to my path, assisted in helping me attain a laser-focus and almost magically elevated the work in which I am engaged. How can I not be joyful with all of that going on! To add to all of this joy I am in the throes of sweeping changes.  I know where I am going; I know what I am here to do and most thrilling of all I know it will all happen at the perfect moment.  All I need to do is maintain my joy, allow the Universe to work its magic and hang on because ALL is possible and ALL is indeed coming.  Life is truly amazing.  I’m loving every moment of it. Wooohooo!!!  The most joyful thing of all—-is that all this is there for each of you!!  It’s time!!  Get your JOY on!! ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium & Spiritual Teacher

Happy Father’s Day!

ara fathers-day

Today we celebrate fathers—all fathers. The fathers that are there for us whenever we need them; the fathers that we wish we could hug just one more time; the fathers whom take on the role for whatever reasons and all the women who are mothers AND fathers to their children. We are who we are today because of your influence. We honour you! ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium and Spiritual Teacher

We Are The Makers of What’s Next

ara orlando 2

Today I am absolutely and somewhat starkly reminded of the perfection of all things.  This includes who we truly are, what we are capable of and all the existing possibilities.  We can move mountains; we can shift paradigms; we can help one another and love one another and we can consistently express the love we truly are.  Or we can kill one another.

My heart aches for those impacted by the mass shooting in Orlando. We have all been riveted to the outpouring of information and it serves simply to keep us focused upon the catalyst of this tragedy.  It allows for the angst to expand, the fear to grow and the judgments to keep flowing in a perceived righteousness that fuels fires.  We fail to remember there is a bigger picture at play. We have not even noticed the ever-flowing love emanating from the world at large.  I am choosing to honor the souls who participated in this mass exodus.  An exodus that begs us to see the reflection of who we are in the core of every tragic event.  Humanity as a collective can only express what is within them.  It is evident we have a long way to go before we shift the victim/victimizer paradigm.

Instead of demanding new rules and regulations and instead of insisting we all conform, we might do well to embrace the differences being expressed by the One. Take this opportunity to understand that all life is a reflection—not just the good stuff.  It shows where we most need to change and offers us all an opportunity to do so. We cannot change if we do not own our shadows.  Killing, violence, judgments and more rules and regulations that change our behavior are not the answer.  They are all merely symptoms of a crippled and conditioned humanity and its sorrowful, needful cry for change.

We have it in us.  We have always had it in us to effect the changes we most want to experience.  No killing is a ‘right’ killing.  No violence is ‘right violence’.  Peace has never been fought for, argued for or won through violence in the eons it has been employed as ‘the right move’.  We are all being called and for those who have not participated in a mass exodus it means you are still here and there are other ways for you to make a difference.  It all begins with us and the love we choose to express.  We are the makers of what’s next. ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium and Spiritual Teacher

To Give

ara Giving-Antioch

How many times have you wondered why on earth you are here, bumping around on this plane of existence?  Hazarding a guess, I would say we all have wondered that a time or two.

I recently came across an old journal of mine.  It was dedicated to my thoughts, feelings and any messaging the Council of 12 would deign to offer on the topics I wrote about.  Like anyone else I have had my share of dark nights of the soul and in one particular deeply troubled time I questioned why I was here at all.  Astoundingly enough, the answer was offered up in the writing I am going to share with you.  I didn’t realize it at the time as my sole focus was on what I didn’t have, what wasn’t working, and what seemed totally elusive to me. It is rather evident I was still on the first leg of my spiritual journey.

To Give

What have I accomplished

In this precious moment in time

A flash of pure adventure

In a life that I call mine

I have learned about the struggle

I seem to live it every day

My spirit soars and beckons

As it knows another way

I keep following, lost and anxious

I want so to do this right

To learn and grow and impact

Without the fear and fight

Letting go of what I’m living

As in struggle, fear and woe

Leaves me lost and wandering

In a ‘me’ I do not know

To leave a life unheeded

To go before I’ve lived

Is such a waste of reverence

When I have so much left to give

 

Do you see the answer?

Life is all about what you can give and loving everything unconditionally as you do so.  Giving ceases to have real meaning if you feel deflated, disappointed or resentful after having done so.  It is indicative of giving without purest intent. To give simply because that is what you are here to do is an act of unconditional love.

When the time comes for us to withdraw our focus from this plane of existence we will not be thinking of how much money we made, who is going to quarrel over it, how many cars you owned or how much you suffered.  It will be about how much you gave that will ultimately represent what your life stood for—how many were impacted, how loving you were and always, always how much more you wished you could give if you had more time.

Life is a reverent gift.  It is a force of love that causes us to breathe and to pulse love from the moment of first breath.  It is a gift we are expected to give.  It is not about what we managed to get, how we can get more and how long can we keep it and certainly not about who got more than you did.

As I read my words from so many years ago I had to smile.  Even in my darkest hour the assistance from the unseen was making itself known.  We are all here to give to each other what we can.  Each of us came to this life with certain abilities.  Something no one else can do quite like you can.  Our task is to ferret out what those abilities are, commit to using them and to be of service to others.  In other words, we are here to give to others in our own unique way.

Giving is living.
