Divine Wisdom From Michele Livingston

by Michele Livingston


Dear Michele,

I wonder if you can point me in the right direction. I have heard you many times on the People’s Morning Show (105.7 The X in Central PA) and have heard how you impact lives. I have dreams about people I don’t know and who are in life-threatening situations. I really feel like these are people who need my help and I don’t know what to do. Can you advise me to try to find out what is going on? I would be very grateful!

Sincerely, Sarah

Dear Sarah,

Dreams come in many forms. Some are called "precognition dreams," which means a "pre-knowing" of what will happen. Some disturbing dreams come simply from watching dramatic situations on TV before bed time, which are continued in the subconscious mind during sleep. Dreams that are vivid and that you can remember in detail for years following are called "lucid dreams" or visions. Visions are many times prophetic. When you dream about people that you don’t know in life threatening situations, say a prayer for their safety upon awakening. Prayers are tremendously powerful! Prayers can protect others and if they do indeed cross over, prayers are needed to help them get situated in heaven. Do not worry about the strangers in your dreams, simply pray for their welfare and that they receive whatever they need for their highest good. Praying is a wonderful way to serve humanity, for no prayer goes unheard or unanswered! Just know that this is probably one of your life’s missions and is a great gift to give others.

Blessings, Michele

Dear Michele,

Your column usually deals with spiritual matters, but my question deals with the physical world. I am overweight and a stress-eater. Since the new year, I have gained another 20 pounds. I know losing weight is not easy, but do you have a technique I can use or any advice on a mind-set for losing weight?

Thanks, Chandra

Dear Chandra,

Obesity is an excess of body fat, and anyone who is about 20 percent over their ideal weight could be considered obese.

Life can be stressful. People overeat for a number of reasons, some of which are not totally related to habitual overeating (like hypothyroidism, glandular problems and diabetes). Boredom, emotional tension and a simple love of food are common reasons for overeating. It is sometimes evident that people who have been sexually abused as children will unconsciously put on weight to "pad" themselves against feeling vulnerable. They may subconsciously think, "If I am not attractive, I won’t be molested." A poor diet and lack of exercise may lead to being overweight. Some people retain water as well, so a simple herbal diuretic may be of value.

Permanent weight loss requires a commitment to being aware of your eating habits. In other words, chew your food thoroughly, eat slowly, try not to consume everything on your plate, etc. Regular exercise programs along with good elimination are also helpful. There is no easy fix, yet conscious manifestation can help. Say the following positive affirmation daily:

I am now happy and grateful for being at my ideal weight of _____. I am only eating foods and drinking beverages that are for my highest good. I am now monitoring my consumption of sugar, fats and carbohydrates. I am in perfect health. I am happy and grateful for looking thin and toned. I love and appreciate my body. I am disciplined with an exercise program. I am walking tall with excellent posture. I am happy for my recent weight loss.

Putting your statements in the present expedites weight loss. This affirmation can be said several times a day until it enters the subconscious mind, and the universe will always bring you what you think and believe.

In addition, hypnotherapy can be a helpful tool to assist in weight loss. Most of us have eating habits that were acquired in early childhood. How many of us have heard, "Eat everything on your plate; there are children starving in China" along with other things that are embedded deep in our subconscious minds? With hypnotherapy, you are able to identify and alter these misconceptions and help change lifelong eating habits. Good luck!

Dear Michele,

My ex-husband and the father of my children died suddenly in a car accident. I had to divorce him because of his never ending struggle with alcohol and abusive personality. Did he find his way to heaven? He was lost and alone on earth, and now I hope he’s happy. Thank you, Connie.

Dear Connie,

We are all helped to the other side by loving angels and guides. Sometimes, if we have been a substance abuser, we go through a form of rehabilitation on the other side. And of course we experience our "life review," so that we can see what our actions and deeds did for or against others. Through this process we become adjusted to the fourth dimension and then decide how we want to soul progress. We can also train to be spirit guides for those still on earth. There is no time in heaven, so just know that eventually your husband will be at the place he needs to be for further advancement. And for now, rest assured, he is in the love and light of the Creator.
