Inspiration (an excerpt) Cherie Carter-Scott Inspiration is the moment in which the spirit within is accessed and revealed. Inspiration dawns when something in your outer world sparks a flame within you and calls forth a message. It arrives to remind you that all your answers lie inside of you, and that you alone are the wisest wizard in your kingdom. It is often easy to... Continue reading

FORGIVENESS IS a difficult area for most of us. We all need to do forgiveness work. Anyone who has a problem with loving themselves is stuck in this area. Forgiveness opens our hearts to self-love. Many of us carry grudges for years and years. We feel self-righteous because of whatsomeone else did to us. I call this being stuck in the prison of self-righteous resentment.... Continue reading

When you express gratitude, you raise the vibrations around you to a higher frequency. You create positive energy that emanates out from you and returns to you as wonderful experiences. You become magnetic. Good things and good people gravitate toward you because you’re such a joy and delight to be around. An attitude of gratitude is naturally attractive. It has the power to turn challenges... Continue reading

Life is not about control or making things happen in the ways we think they should happen. In fact, it's rather arrogant for us to be on this planet that's been here for so long and expect to be able to control life on it. If we want to see changes, then our task is to set things in motion, not to micromanage and make... Continue reading

Happiness is a choice you make, an attitude you step into, a state of being that runs deeper than conditions. It is more available than impossible. Can you and I find a way to be at peace with ourselves and our lives right now, even before the mortgage is paid, we resolve our differences with our ex, or global warming is offset? I have wanted...

Your attitude influences your world and everything you do in it. It defines the energy you send out and, in turn, takes shape and color in your circumstances. If you have a positive attitude, you are more welcoming and people are drawn to you. A positive attitude opens you to the flow of life. If you are depressed, angry, and unhappy, no one wants to...

Everything in our lives reflects our consciousness. Our beliefs, attitudes, expectations, feelings, and emotional patterns are all mirrored in the circumstances and events of our lives. For example, if I am very critical of myself, I'm likely to attract and be attracted to people who mirror that internal process by being critical of me as well. The more I love and support myself emotionally, the... Continue reading

When the spirit of Ben Franklin showed up in my kitchen and gave me the interview that launched the bookConversations with History , I thought this was just going to be a fun project. I'm a psychic medium so I can communicate with spirits, and I couldn't wait to channel the inside scoop from these 22 celebrity spirits. Looking back, it certainly was fun. But... Continue reading

There are thousands of agreements you have made with yourself, with other people, with your dream of life, with God, with society, with your parents, with your spouse, with your children. But the most important agreements are the ones you made with yourself. In these agreements you tell yourself who you are, what you feel, what you believe, and how to behave. The result is...

You control the direction of your life. Only your self-concept limits you from achieving your fullest capacity. Since changes in behavior generally precede changes in attitude, action directed toward your vision will increase your sense of purpose and belief in the possibility of success. How can you develop a self-concept linked to your untapped potential? First, you can decide on the kind of life you... Continue reading

At a certain point, life becomes less about who you're becoming and more about who you've become. What you used to think of as the future has become the present, and you can't help but wonder if your life wouldn't be better if you'd just lived it more fully in the past. But how could you have? You were too busy thinking about the future!... Continue reading

How much time do you spend avoiding yourself? Your immediate response was no doubt, "none." Why would I avoid myself? It seems like it would be impossible to do. Yet, that is what many people do--avoiding. Your life is comprised of everything you do--showering, brushing your teeth and sleeping, with everything in between. However, there is often a plethora of busy work that distracts and... Continue reading

An excellent way to practice love is to set your attention on seeing beyond someone's behavior or personality. Try to realize that beneath the surface insecurity, negative thinking, and poor behavior, everyone is connected to God. Just as you wouldn't get angry at someone simply because he or she is in a wheelchair, you need not be angry because a person hasn't yet opened his... Continue reading

When the word forgiving is mentioned, who comes to your mind? Who is the person or what is the experience that you feel you will never forget, never forgive? What is it that holds you to the past? When you refuse to forgive, you hold onto the past, and it is impossible for you to be in present time. It is only when you are... Continue reading

The past is history, so let it go. The future is a mystery, so let it come. The present is this moment now - a gift. To be truly in the present today, it is useful to release all your fears (based on the past) and your worries (imagined futures) - this is the work of someone who truly wants to awaken, and break free...

We're made, mostly, by the people who surround us. We make each other every day. I'm constantly telling this to people. They say, "Oh, loving is so difficult." I say, "Don't you know how easy it is? Loving is simple. It's we who are complex." Loving means offering the hassled waitress a "Thank you. That was great." I ate recently at a real greasy spoon... Continue reading

The world around you is a reflection, a mirror showing you the person you are. To change your world, you must change yourself. To blame and complain will only make matters worse. Whatever you care about, is your responsibility. What you see in others, shows you yourself. See the best in others, and you will be your best. Give to others, and you give to... Continue reading

Do you ever feel like life is spinning out of control? That the harder you try to get ahead the more you just barely get by? If so, maybe it's time for you to think aboutquitting life -- that elusive thing that we chase after and strive for -- and, instead, start living. It can be a difficult distinction to understand, I know, but making... Continue reading

I love the bumper sticker that reads: DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU THINK. Oh, the nonsense my brain can conjure up. The fears. The resentments. The dramas. It's like a movie theater that plays the worst B movies some days. My friend Aaron, who is a recovering alcoholic, said something profound once: "My brain is trying to kill me." I laughed, but realized it was true... Continue reading

We always seem to want those things we don't have. Moreover, we are often convinced that if we had those things we want so badly, we would finally be happy. Singles who want to be in a relationship often believe once they are in one they will finally be happy. Those in shaky relationships hope their relationship will work out, because having worked it out... Continue reading
