Renewing Your Mind: Loving Thoughts Have Energy

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

The electrical energy of our thoughts is so powerful that it can cross through dimensions, sending signals between us and those who have died. As we think of them in this earthly dimension and they think of us in heaven, those thought signals go back and forth, and sometimes they’re strong enough to break through in ways we can perceive. What strengthens thoughts the most? Love.

While researching a series of articles on animals in heaven and the signs and messages they may send us, I discovered that for pets, just like for people, bonds of love become thought energy that fuels communication and connection back and forth.

My daughter’s beloved cat Liberty died on the day I started working on that series. Liberty was a sweetheart through and through, and she had a special place in my heart, as well. I miss Liberty tremendously — but I know that she still exists, and that sending my love to her now is as simple as saying a prayer, asking God to deliver the message to her. Liberty has sent her love, as well, by appearing in one of my dreams.

If you’re grieving the death of a person or a pet, you can be confident that the love between you will never die.



Renewing Your Mind: Love that Transcends Romance

Wednesday, February 10th, 2016

Every Valentine’s Day, society turns the spotlight on romantic love. But as exciting as romance can be, it’s only one aspect of love. Love, in its fullest expression, connects us to God. It’s God’s pure, complete, and unconditional love that truly is the greatest love of all, because God is the source from which all love flows.

The story of why St. Valentine is the patron saint of love reflects that reality. It was ultimately Valentine’s love for God, not just the way he helped romantic couples, that made him the saint who inspired love’s holiday.

So whether or not your romantic life is going well this year, you still have a lot to celebrate on Valentine’s Day. God’s love is for everyone!  As I write this, I’m blessed to have a good marriage and a loving husband. But my deepest love goes beyond my marriage, and my number one guy is God, no matter what.
