I have been working on myself for 20 years trying to learn and discover who this person called Michael Singer is. I am not better, happier, or even prettier than anyone else. I just have done enough schooling, seminars, counseling sessions, and work to learn about this human being I call me. I have struggled with depression, anxiety, and migraines and enough pain and loss for a lifetime. I am human who is trying to do the best he can. I have not always made the best decisions in my life, but I have come to see I have always done my best and my best is good enough, even if down the road I thought I was the biggest idiot in the world. I have learned that I am a compassionate, caring, loving person who wants to make a difference. I have discovered my gifts and want to share them so people can learn about your gifts and make your life happier or more fulfilled.
Everyone is struggling in some ways in their lives. It is part of the condition we call being human. As much as we think we are broken or different or there is something wrong with us, or that we are not lovable, that is not the truth. We are all children of God and are all born with a light and a beauty and a gift that is our own. Yes, life is painful sometimes, but you cannot see the light without going into the darkness first. We are all wounded and doing the best we can. I witness the lack of compassion we hold for ourselves everyday in my healing practice. We can be so nice to strangers and other people, yet we constantly beat ourselves on not being enough.
I believe when you work on discovering who you really are, not what you were told or believe, that you find your light and your gifts. On some level, life is a soul retrieval. We are here to learn, grow, and find our heart and soul. Along the way, we struggle, we cry, and we have to deal with pain, but from these adversities, we learn to laugh, love, and find our light to share with others. One small match can and will light up a very large dark room. We all carry that light inside of us: we are the light. We just have to do some work every now and then to find it and bring it out so it can shine.
I found out I do make a difference in the word and want you to know you do too.
Life is too short to waste any amount of time on wondering what other people think about you. What's important to me is not others opinions of me, but my opinion of myself. Some days I like myself more than other days, and some days I don't like myself much at all, but I don't waste any time or energy thinking about how other people feel about me. Some people will like me, others will not, but I don't give them the power to influence how I feel about myself. I do enough of that on my own without help from anyone else.
I woke up today thinking about the word Struggle and decided to look up the meaning and here is what I found, 1: To make strenuous or violent efforts in the face of difficulties or opposition struggling with the problem 2: To proceed with difficulty or with great effort, to make forceful or violent efforts to get free of restraint or constriction.
Just by being human, we all Struggle with things in our life. Anywhere from physical, to mental, sexual and emotionally. Just to be human means we struggle. It’s not bad, wrong, it is just painful and part of being human.
Is it fun? Hell no sometimes it just down right sucks and we try and do any and everything in out power not too, but the truth this is how we learn and grow. Yes we would all love our lives to be easy and effortless and we all spend as much time as possible avoiding Struggling, but on some levels it will always be there.Sometimes the volume is louder than others.
The power comes in fighting it, or surrendering or learning to trust that for some reason God has placed this Struggle in our path to learn and grow and hopefully be a better or happier person and maybe even closer to God.
If your struggling, maybe your lesson is not to try and do it all on your own. Maybe your lesson is that you are not weak to ask for help, you are just human who has needs and wants. Please reach out when you are Struggling and ask for help, or a hand or a hug. We all need these to keep going….
I had someone ask me the other day how I was doing and instead of the " I am fine and you" answer I stopped to think about the question for a while. What I came up with is on many levels I am so grateful for all I have; my work is not my work because it is my passion; I have 2 children who I love and adore more than life itself. But day-to-day with whatever life offers me, I struggle. My children struggle with being teenagers, and there is nothing I can do but hold and love them with all my heart and soul, and it is still painful to watch and know this is their journey and this is how they learn. I struggle with my pain and sadness and yet I am so connected to God and spirit and there is so much gratitude that the easiest answer with how am I doing is that I feel blessed for all I have and all I receive and calling to good or bad is just the human part of who I am.
One of the main reasons that we lose our enthusiasm in life is because we become ungrateful . . . we let what was once a miracle become common to us. We get so accustomed to his goodness it becomes a routine. It is proven fact if you start the day, while you're still in bed, with 3 to 5 things you are grateful for, your whole day will shift. Try it for 30 days. What do you have to lose?
I am an intuitive, a teacher, an elder, and a guide and have worked hard on finding my heart and my gifts so that I can make a difference in this world. I believe when I work with people, that I can and do make a difference. Giving is the highest form of living there is. I have been told when you heal yourself and work through your wounds and beliefs, that you heal seven generations forward and seven generations back, so I like to think I make a difference in the world, like a pebble dropped in water, the ripples keep going.
If someone you know is having a hard time and has been struggling, I think it is not helpful so say things like, “You have so much to be grateful for” or “ just put on a smile and it will be fine.” I find the the thing they need most is for someone to slow down with compassion and just open your heart to them. Just be with them where they are at, not where you want them to be. Let them be seen and loved and held and do not try and fix them. The biggest gift you can give them is your time and a open heart. Don’t try and change them, just listen and be with them. Sometime’s means just sitting there and saying nothing. Let your heart speak to theirs.

I’m here, I care. This is not just what I do for a living, it is who I am. All I ever wanted was to reach out and touch another human being not just with my hands but with my heart and soul. I have gifts I want to share. I do not judge, I don’t care if your battling with depression, drugs, alcohol, loneliness or just tired of struggling and going in circles and keep thinking it will never get better. I don’t care if you need to cry or scream or just be held and listened too, I will stay with you. We all need someone to be there to see us, to hold us and to care in our lives every now and then. It does not make you weak for asking, it just means you need someone to help carry the load and you are strong enough to ask.
There’s nothing you have ever done or said to to yourself that I have not said or done to myself. I have been my own best (and worst) client. I am stronger than the depression and I am braver than loneliness and the addictions you might have and I can help you hold it so the load is not so heavy and you know you are not alone on this journey.
Please, if you are in pain, reach out. If not to me, someone. There are people out there who care but the first step is yours in asking for help.
