News Release – Counseling Psychology Association

Healing Through Compassion & Affirmation

Caring and Compassion

The IMM Counseling Psychology Association

Last year the International Metaphysical Ministry (IMM) began working on the foundation of a new organization to provide counseling guidelines, expanded and up-to-the-minute continuing education to IMM Ministerial graduates. This information can be enormously helpful to the professional coach or counselor as well as to someone seeking spiritual/metaphysical assistance. Counseling services are something all Ministers in all religions provide.

The IMM’s Counseling Psychology Association officially kicked off its organization and services January 1st, 2015 for IMM Ministers and it’s University system graduates.

The Association is a professional and educational organization that is dedicated to the growth and enhancement of the spiritual counseling profession. As the majority of IMM graduates engage in some form of coaching and counseling or are planning careers to do the same in the future, these guidelines help to provide a professional framework for operation and the accessibility to continue learning and sharing with other members,

We are proud to announce the certification of Spring (Dr. Vickie Carey) in this new Association and looks forward to the expanded learning, sharing of ideas, concepts and information with other members and with you. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Eight of Wands – Inverted

Eight of Wands: Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

You may feel as though troubles are raining down upon you today. But you’re much stronger than you think you are. You really aren’t losing the battle. In fact, if you pay attention to details, you’ll discover that the negative events are falling by the wayside. Stay calm and you won’t become the target. You’ll be able to weave your way through the fire and escape without issue.

Additional Insight:

There’s a lot of change going on in the world. A lot of it is pushing people and events to change when they don’t want to. That’s creating turmoil for those who are moving forward and welcoming the shifts needed in their lives.

If you’re one of the people going with the flow and enjoying the adventure, you can still feel the anxiety going on around you. Especially if you’re sensitive to subtle energy shifts. Don’t worry. It’s not you. Try to set some shields of protection and push away the fear, anger and turmoil of others. Don’t let their struggles become your battles. You may find yourself in a fight that has no value for you.

If you’re fighting against the tide and trying to keep the status quo going, you’re putting yourself in the line of fire. You’re being pushed out of negative or bad situations and toward a better environment. Don’t fear the change, revel in it. Accept that some things have to change in order for you path to get better. You’re not where you should be and the Divine in your life is trying very hard to get you moving. Continue reading

The 5 Minute Protection Meditation

Close your eyes & relax

Close your eyes & relax

Clearing The Negative and Setting Protection

Everyone has the ability to feel subtle energies around them. I’m sure you can think of a time when you walked into a room where an argument had been happening, feeling the anger or angst. Maybe you’ve even shared a story with a friend saying “You could cut the tension with a knife”.

You don’t have to be psychic or overly sensitive to the energies around you for this type of event to happen. It’s part of our natural instincts as living animals. Human animals maybe, but we still have the ability to sense what’s around us.

In today’s world meditation is viewed from two perspectives, from the spiritual form of enlightenment and becoming one with spirit. Or through the eyes of mainstream medicine as a non-denominational practice that can relieve stress. If a non-denominational practice interests you, try the 5 Minute Meditation for bringing in a little relaxation and escape from the anxieties around you.
