One of the major complaints I’ve heard about being alive is the pain of loneliness. In this day and age, many people live isolated lives of quiet desperation. They go to work in the morning, come back in the evening, heat up a microwave dinner, switch on the TV, stone for two hours, drink some alcohol, maybe surf the Internet, then fall asleep.
In the past, it was not easy for a person to lead an isolated lifestyle. Everything we needed to survive had to come through interaction with other people. For example, buying bread from the baker, meat from the butcher… in the past, there were no huge supermarkets where you could do all your grocery shopping in silence; quietly comparing prices by yourself.
You had to talk to different people to get what you need. This might be a lame example but it’s rather obvious that the increase in convenience also increases our separation from others. Do any of you talk to the guy at the checkout counter? You could complete the entire transaction in silence if you wanted to. Just nod your head, pay your money and go.
In the past, there ware no fancy computer games, no Xbox, PlayStation, or the Internet to feed your entertainment needs. If you wanted fun, you’d have to play a game with others. Whether it’s a table game like Chess or Scrabble, or a physically active one like the Kampong (village) game, chaptek, where players do kicking stunts with a flat rubber shuttlecock. When you were young in school, I’m sure you played many such games with your friends during recess period or after school. But as we age, many of us lose touch of this precious joy that comes from group games and sport. It’s just all about work, money, and survival.
There are good reasons why you should shut off your TV and gather your friends for a game or two. The Church of Christ understands this principle well. They call it Fellowship. Cell group leaders will take the effort to organise group activities, outings, games, discussions, pot luck dinners and more. Friends can bring new friends – the more the merrier. In my opinion, they are doing a great job of helping people experience the joy of being together. This is a condition you should try to create in your life. Whether you want to join a fellowship organisation, a special interest group, a book club, a school alumni, or simply call up old friends, every one of us needs to work at reconnecting ourselves with others. Especially when you live in a world designed to convenience you into separation and isolation.
You see, you don’t need a lot of money to be happy. Many people think they can only be happy with the lifestyle of the rich and famous. They want to jet-set around the world, have non-stop sex with a harem of harlots, swim in the opulent blue pools of Miami and such. Now as fantastic as that sounds, there are many rich people who are experiencing loneliness in life.
They think everyone around them is just there for their money and nobody really loves them for who they are. The old saying is, ‘it gets lonely at the top’. And these people at the top of the pyramid are experiencing their disconnection from the rest of the world. So you see, the problem is the same. What they lack and what we lack, is love. And money can’t buy love. It takes an investment of your time, energy, and emotions, to build up fruitful relationships.
If you consider that every one of us is a soul animating a physical body, then on a spiritual level, we are all connected because all spirit emanates from the same source – God. (When I speak of God, I mean so in the universal sense as a higher power and not biased to a particular religious order.) As children of God, we are here to explore and express the beauty of life . Thus the magic is hidden in our interaction. Spending time to know others can help you learn more about yourself.
That is the higher purpose of the Big Bang – why God split himself up into the infinite number of stars and souls which inhabit this universe – to know thyself; to know Himself. Because even for God, infinity is a lonely place to be if He’s by himself. So He opened himself up to the Universe within, which is why there is you and me, and we are all part of something greater, part of a whole, and we must not be afraid to explore ourselves; explore each other. And this is done not in isolation, but by getting out there and interacting with others. For such is the purpose we are created. To explore and experience everything, including the gamut of human emotions – the good and bad, right and wrong, the Seven Sins and The Ten Commandments – we go through it all.
So some people ask why does God allow people to suffer? Why are there 3 billion people living on less that $2 USD a day? This is not God’s fault… this is our fault. Too many people only think of taking, keeping, getting more, and hoarding in order to create the opulent, luxurious lifestyle they think will give them unlimited pleasure. So in a country where we gorge ourselves on burger, porn, pizza, spa massage, horror movies, celebrity gossip, computer gadgets and more, there are people who scrape rotting meat off leftover fish bones from the factory to fry and eat as a daily meal. This is not a problem for God to fix because He is an observer. If the social condition bothers us, then we should find it in our hearts to reverse our Taking mindset and focus on how we can give to others. Now Some people say, “What if I give and give and nobody gives back?” Then this is my answer, ‘you can’t give away what you don’t have.’
Sometimes you own things not only in the physical sense, but in the noumenal sense as well, like wisdom or an idea. This you can share with another – it is also a form of giving. Sometimes you see a friend in need, you sit down with him or her over a cup of coffee and brainstorm together ways to overcome their problems. This is also a form of giving. Giving doesn’t mean you have to give your wallet away. It means you need to grow the Spirit of Giving, which is the same one that wants and desires to see friends and family healthy and happy. The Holy Spirit that will go all the way for a friend. All you need is the Will to help someone.
When you play games with others, you learn the importance of sharing and taking turns; offering others encouragement, complimenting their efforts; building camaraderie and deeper bonds. You learn about the joy of giving to others, the joy of competition, and the joy of fellowship that money can’t buy. Everything we enjoy – food, sex, money, fun, friendship, social approval, and more – comes from other people. Loneliness and boredom happens when we isolate ourselves; thinking that this is the norm when it is actually an abnormality of the human condition. So now is the time to experience joie de vivre (joy of life) by reaching out and connecting with others. Rid yourself of those old isolation policies and start trading with other people. You’ll find that the magic of living is found in connecting your heart to others around you. Touch the spirit in every person.
We have talked about improving happiness by developing a robust network of friends. I hope some of you have put the thought into action and are beginning to see results. Some members report a marked improvement in their mood just by spending a day out with friends on a field trip. Sounds good? Then you should do more of it.
Let’s talk a little bit about having a philosophy for life because I realize that many of us do not see a higher purpose for our lives or a reason for being. And this must be conceived before we can find meaning in living.
I will divide the world for you into the religious and the non-religious. Some youths today think religion is ‘stuffy’, ‘old-hat’, and for the ‘weak-minded’. In fact, you’ll see how a guest religious speaker can get intellectually trashed at a university conference made up of highly educated non-believers or agnostics. However, on the whole, the people with religious beliefs have a happier state of mind than non-believers. This is because they have metaphysical answers to questions science alone cannot answer. They see a bigger picture to life and being.
I don’t know what your religion is, and maybe you are agnostic. But I believe there is some hidden force at work in our Universe; some higher intelligence. There are Leaders of this Universal Intelligence: God, Yahweh, Allah, Buddha, Shiva, Zeus, Neptune, Poseidon; Odin, Thor, Freyja; Osiris, Isis, Horus, Hathor and others. I’m not going to debate on who has the truest religion because this has been done many times before. I am a Buddhist by religion and I believe in the philosophy of Buddhism – the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha – the Triple Gems. But I won’t say this is the truest religion because there is no way we can scientifically validate this claim. All religions are based on faith. And thus it takes a leap of faith to make it real for you. Follow your heart, read the literature, and choose what you want to believe in.
A Reason for Living
I believe everyone is born onto this Earth with some role to play. Their life is set up so that they will experience challenges and difficulties which they have the opportunity to overcome or fail. If you can master the lessons in this lifetime, you will progress to new challenges and lessons in the next lifetime. Here I am making an assumption of a Death and Rebirth Cycle – our soul is reborn over many lifetimes. And there is a scorecard. Look at your hands. Your past life experiences are carved into the lines of your hands. That’s how palm readers are able to spot people who are old souls with great wisdom and experience. Merit is also accumulated and rewarded accordingly. If you do good in this lifetime, you are rewarded with better personal qualities or circumstances in your next lifetime. This is what Buddhists call Karma; Christians say ‘You reap what you sow’.
Some of us are here to teach, some are here to express through music, some are here to make technological or scientific breakthroughs; some are here to learn the basic lessons like kindness and compassion. (Actually I would consider that an advanced lesson, but I don’t know how the Universe organises its curriculum.) Whatever your situation is now, know that you have a role to play in this lifetime. It may be a life of suffering because one may have done evil in the past, or it may be a life to enjoy as a reward for past good deeds, or it could be a standard lesson in patience, persistence, self-confidence, or a million other qualities.
What I’m telling you takes a leap of faith to believe in. That’s why many educated people would simply dismiss it as hogwash. But the foundation of my happiness lies in knowing that there is a greater purpose and system to life than just the one I’m living. With this understanding, I see obstacles not as problems, but as challenges to overcome. Pain and suffering not as bad luck, but as part of a lesson to be learned. Let me give you an example: Imagine in a past life you were a wealthy land owner who scalded a woman’s face with boiling water because she wouldn’t marry you. Then in this lifetime, you are born as a woman with facial deformity. The Universe wants you to learn the pain caused to the scalded woman who rejected you, by putting you in a role where you directly experience every emotion – depression, fear, rejection – in the hope that you will understand the pain caused to others and perhaps become a more understanding, kind, and compassionate soul.
Psychological studies show that religion is a happiness booster. So for this week, if you are agnostic, I invite you to look around at the different religions and explore their literature, practices, and philosophy. You’ll probably find one you feel that speaks to your heart. If you already have a religion you like, I invite you to delve deeper into the spiritual knowledge – read the books, talk to the spiritual teachers, visit the temples, monasteries, synagogues, churches, or mosques. There is great spiritual power flowing through these places. Spending some time there will be good for your soul. You will see that it enhances your clarity and gives you renewed strength.

Why You Are Stuck In A Particular Circumstance
Sometimes, life will throw things at you that you cannot understand. For example, a person wants to love a lady, but no matter what, she resists your advances. This means she is not your lady, or that there is something keeping the two of you apart. It could be Karma from the past or love from another man in the past. Another example is that of a beggar who has no home. It could be a ex-lover from the past making you poor.
The situation, or Karma, or people keep you apart. So these things are unseen and invisible. People can’t see them, so they don’t know they are operating quietly in the background. These cause us much frustration because they are things from the greater past which are influencing our future. Knowing how they operate will benefit you greatly. It will teach you how to overcome negative karma and to see situations with an observing eye that stays centered amidst the storms of life.
What are some of these factors and situations? Let’s find out.
There is something known as Karma. This is a spiritual force which records, rewards, and punishes the good and bad deeds of people. It is ever-present, invisible, and all-potent. If you think there is no punishment for bad deeds and no reward for good deeds, that is wrong. Good deeds are rewarded and bad deeds are punished – not by Heaven, but by the Universal Force. It is automatic and continuous throughout all existence.
Your life is a result of doing good or bad karma; it can come in many forms – not only good or bad. Karma can be liking karma which is the result of having treated someone well in a past life or earlier time in your life. It can be animosity karma, which brings two people into conflict. There is even Food Karma which can be good or bad – causing you to eat delicious cuisine or garbage food. It can even be love karma which makes or breaks your relationship.
Karma is something automatic and powerful. What you need to know about Karma is that it is not a simple thing, but a complex system of rules. Every act in the Universe has karmic points associated with it. Killing a person is 1000 bad karmic points if it is accidental. If it is done with ill intent, it will cost 10,000 bad karmic points. What karma can do to you is amazing…. 5 good karma will give you an hour sitting on the beach, reading your book, ogling guys and girls, and sipping your Piña Colada. 2 good food karma will give you a delicious meal that fills your tummy and delights your tastebuds.
This kind of karma comes when we do something bad like be unfilial to our parents, disloyal to our spouses, kill an ant, or eat beef (Buddha’s rule: no eating beef because the cow is a sacred animal). Eating beef carries 2 negative karmic points for every 1 pound or 450 grams of beef. What that will do to you is give you pain in some physical form like a bodyache, a headache, swelling, or even gout. More than that, the karmic points can accumulate into a big problem like kidney failure.
Some foods which bring about good karma are all vegetables, rice and grain, nuts, beans, cheese, tofu, apples, pears, bananas and more. Most Yin energy foods like the above are water-based and bring about good karma. However, Yang foods like fried chicken (-1 karmic point), grilled beef (-2 karmic points), pork (-1 karmic point), give you bad karma. The only meat that is safe from negative karma is Fish. The rest of the meats will give you bad karma. Even the rest of the seafoods will hurt you because the animal really struggles and suffers before it dies.
“Why No Beef? Steak is the BEST THING!”
For cows, God Indra, was inhabiting all cows for many lifetimes. So when we killed cows, he watched the cows suffer greatly even though they gave milk and cheese, but still lost their lives to meat slaughter. Therefore, Buddha thought, “We must stop the demand for beef by willing our followers to stop eating beef.” Thus, the rule: No Beef. Anyway, it is the heaviest karmic blow of 2 points for 1 steak (450 g). 2 negative karmic points can give you a headache for 10 minutes.
The Karma that Lurks In People
People have good and bad karma as well. Just rubbing them can transfer their Karma to you. So if you want to bless a good friend, pat them on the back. Your karma will transfer to them. This is especially so if you are grateful and pat them in a state of gratitude or appreciation. You might even see them smile as the karma enters them.
Some people have very bad karma, such that when you shake hands with them, you can feel it stick to your palms. If you feel that bad karma is sticking to you, go bathe yourself or wash your hands. Pray to the Gods, Angels, and Buddhas that the water you use may be Holy. This Holy Water you wash with will be able to clear bad karma. You can even ask an Angel to bless your drink Holy and you will be drinking Holy Water. To contact an Angel, simply pray at a church. An angel can become your Life Guide. If you are of another religion, pray at your temple, synagogue, mosque, or cathedral.
Lives also have good and bad karma. A rich man has a life of great karma. To be rich requires more than a blessed life. It takes brains, tenacity, talent, and great help. A poor man, on the other hand, is not blessed. But if he works hard, uses his mind, educates well, and makes plenty of talented friends, he can also pull himself up. Even though he might not be as rich as the first man, he will still do well. However, if one has great negative karma, then no matter what you try, it can fail. Let’s say you have great bad karma and you want to make a killing on the stock market, but in the end, you killed your bank account. You tried hard – training in technical analysis, reading stock market indicators and studying trading systems. And after 6 months of training, 3 months of paper trading… you still lost it all. Sad? Karma attracts this situation to you. You had no choice but to lose.
How can you avoid situations like this? You can pray to your Guardian Spirits not to lead you into situations like this. But they will probably say it is your life lesson. Sometimes life teaches you hard lessons like these. There is no way out, but only to learn from the higher lesson that this experience brings. For example, in a stock market crash, don’t trade. But for a higher lesson, it could be: Don’t trust in methods that promise easy money. Or don’t be so greedy for money such that you look to get rich quick.
How To Get More Good Karma?
Good karma is good. But it is not free. You have to do more good deeds to get good karma. Help a friend in need. Give things away to charity. Abstain from killing an animal. Buy a meal for a beggar. Resist sexual misconduct yourself and encourage a friend to be loyal to his wife. Speak kind and good words to others always. Resist scolding, cursing, and getting angry with others. Every time you do a good deed like this, you get good karma. This good karma is a reward for your good actions. Enjoy your rewards.
Being good is the key to a good life. You know this. But if you want to be bad and still have a good life, it is possible. But you will have to pay back in the end. Your soul will be put through another harrowing experience in future because of your accumulated bad karma. Life is not kind to bad people. It is good to good people.
What you need to know is that loving everything and everyone in life is the way to a better life. There is no substitute for being good. Good life is something earned. It cannot be won by fighting over, you have to earn it.
There are many things which consist of Good Deeds, but what you must know is that Goodness is from Within. If you are good on the inside, all the goodness will flow out from you and into the world around you. How do you become good from within? You cultivate it into yourself. Methods like meditation, repentance, seeking refuge, prayer, volunteering, doing good deeds etc.
Karma is something fixed. You can’t adjust it. However, you can offset it. This is done by using your Good deeds to offset your Bad deeds. You can pray to the Gods to get this done. Or your Guardian Spirits can ask the Gods in charge for it.
Repenting and doing more good deeds is the other way to clear karma. There is no other way to clear karma. Only thing you need to know is that you must repent and correct yourself to a better way of life. That is what karma wants – to be your teacher. Your teacher cares for you and designs the future lessons in your life for you.

When life does not unfold the way you expect… and there are many situations like this, where the harder you try or the faster you act, the worse things get. What can you do to shift the flow of things and change your life?
One of the most important principles I have learnt in my lifetime is that ‘Life Mirrors Your Beliefs’.
We are all the product of what is within us. If, for example, you develop the belief that others are out to cheat, then you will find a lot of people who fill that role perfectly, and victimising situations strangely drawn to you.
This is not to say that the world does not have people who intentionally deceive, or that you should not be wary, but if the fear of deception becomes your main focus, then that is all you will find. The intense focus blinds you to those who are honest, generous, and just.
Beliefs colour our perceptions, such that even the cutest, kindest animal can seem to be a venomous beast.
The reverse is also true.
What is important is that you clear your mind to be free of beliefs which cloud your perceptions, such that you can achieve clear sensing to get the most objective impressions of people and situations.
This alone, can already shift the course of your life.
Many of us are not aware of the thoughts which flash by in our minds. The culmination of these split second assumptions and judgments, subtly shift our moods and conjure emotional storms that cause us to act in destructive and detrimental ways.
That is why I always say: The better a person you are, the better your life shall unfold.
Sometimes, people challenge me on this and cite examples of those who are dishonourable, selfish, and greedy, who seem to have all the wealth, power, and fame.
I say yes, they are right. There are people who use an underhanded approach to quickly achieve wealth, power, fame, and pleasure. Yet, there are people who achieve equivalent results using honourable, generous, and fair principles.
The difference is in which way allows you to get a good night’s sleep.
Let us examine the question of quality of life for a moment….
Is a good life defined just by money, luxury, status, and the satisfaction of our desires?
Or could peace of mind, family harmony, friendly neighbours, and a sense of meaningful existence, contribute to your happiness?
Even though one road is faster… at the end of life, the the ultimate question is still:
“Achievement and luxury aside, are you happy with who you have become?”
And I do not mean ‘who’ as in status or reputation, like:
“So-and-so is a Powerful Leader.” — Who’s Who
“Revolutionary Brilliance.” — TIME
These are achievements.
What I mean by ‘who’, is the measure of your character, which requires the transformation of your heart.
The most difficult situations in our lives that we are stuck with, cannot be broken through with a simple change of strategy or the latest tactic.
These are tools of the mind. The best tools, wielded inappropriately, would become a weapon, and instead of building something worthwhile, would lead to destructive results.
What you need are not new tools or techniques, but a different way of using them.
And the difference here, is in your heart — not in your intelligence, but in your wisdom.
Wisdom comes from the heart. It is what you choose to do with all that you know; the alignment of your actions — what is your effect on the world?
When it is finally time to go, what have you left behind through your life on Earth? Will the world be any better for your friends, your family, your children?
Or have you unknowingly made it harder for them to carry on?
Life is a transformation of character.
You could just be doing an ordinary job, leading a simple, routine life. Yet, you are in the same boat as the most extravagant millionaire.
You are on the Life Boat… and on this journey, the destination is not as important as how you choose to get there.
The path you choose is a reflection of who you are. And in God’s eyes, that is all that matters.
Many situations in life can cause us to boil. Once we are enraged, it seems we only have two choices to dealing with our anger: explode or implode. Either way, it only brings more frustration into our lives. Anger management is a skill you can learn to manage your emotions to restore inner peace and harmony in your life.
The Truth about Dealing with Anger
Managing anger is not so much about the techniques as it is about understanding yourself and your relationships with others. When you sense anger, it is a signal that there is something for you to learn in this particular situation in your life.
“Wait,” you say. “It is the other person’s fault; they did me wrong. Why should I have to learn anything?”
Well, that may be true, but let me ask you: if someone did you wrong, and you got angry, does that make you right? It is an imperfect world. People are still learning from each other. You could be perfectly in the right and yet because you carry the anger, the one who suffers the most is you and those you care for.
6 Anger Management Techniques
#1 KEEP YOUR FUTURE IN MIND
When all is said and done, I doubt you would be seeking a future filled with strife and struggle. Therefore, you need to work towards harmony. One less enemy saves you buckets of worry. Thus, the golden rule you need to remember is: the better you can handle anger, the better the outcome you can achieve in most situations.
In heated arguments, tell yourself: “Stop! What is my ultimate goal here? Would releasing anger help or hurt the situation?” You always want to act in the way which produces the best outcome for your future.
#2 KNOW WHO YOU ARE CHOOSING TO BE
Your actions are a reflection of who you are. People judge you through your speech and the emotions you represent. Before you act, know what kind of person you are showing yourself to be. Would being labelled ‘hotheaded’ and ‘out of control’ be how you would like to be remembered? If not, how would you like to be perceived instead? Act to fulfil your desired image.
#3 TRUST THE DEEPER TRUTHS
‘Hate Begets Hate’
Whatever you give out, comes back to you even stronger. Thus, it becomes a vicious circle of an eye for an eye making the whole world blind. The only way out is if you say:
“I value peace. I value harmony and safety. It is okay if I suffer a little now if the future can be better because of it. I pray for inner strength to hold myself together.”
#4 BE AWARE OF THE SENSATIONS OF ANGER BUILDING UP
Some people feel it as pressure in the head, some feel it as rising heat in the chest, while others sense anger as a rush of energy from the stomach. Being aware of the buildup of the sensations gives you an early warning sign that your state of mind is shifting to the negative. At this point, you can still easily transform how you feel.
#5 SHORT-CIRCUIT THE BUILDUP AND RESTORE BALANCE
Excuse yourself and exit the situation. If you are unable to do that, then stop speaking and place a portion of your attention on cooling your emotions. One measure of great character is how well you manage your emotion while under pressure.
You might want to go for a walk or do some exercises like swimming, cycling, and basketball, as these simple movements help release physiological tensions.
#6 CLEAR YOUR EMOTIONS AND REFLECT FOR GREATER UNDERSTANDING
When you feel more calm, sit in a quiet place and reflect upon how you came to be in conflict with this person. If you were a brother or a sister to each other, what is it that each of you wants? What is it that you are not understanding about the inner desires of each other?
Every person in life struggles in some way. To carry a desire which brings you into conflict with another is a form of suffering. If the world were an ideal place, we would all have flawless characters. However, that is not the case yet in our world. People are still learning to be better versions of themselves.
What you might do is set an example for everyone, that although afflicted with the condition of anger, you strive to develop the virtue of patience and understanding. When family and friends see that you are making a difference in the condition of your character, they could be inspired to follow suit.
“Life is a question of who you are choosing to be,” is one of my favourite sayings. Dealing with anger is a breeze when you have cultivated your heart and mind to a level of self-mastery.
This is a Spiritual Tarot reading by Halabuth Bong for the week of 15 Aug – 22 Aug 2016. It is relevant to the people living in Singapore and it is related to Business and Industry. Shall we begin? Here we go!
Card One: The Fool
The first card is your past and it shows you venturing into something new. Taking an unknown path of sorts with many promises of good fortune and good returns. This could be a new business, a new marketing strategy, a new job, a new path that you have recently embarked upon. Think, what new thing have I just begun?
The Fool is a card for striking out on a new path, letting go, and living in the moment. Trusting the flow and being true to yourself. You have entrusted yourself to follow your heart. And that is why you have arrived in a confrontation in Card Two – the present moment.
Card Two: 7 of Wands
The second card shows you in the present moment battling forces and trying to hammer things down – using Aggression, Defiance, and Conviction to get your way. You might find yourself taking the offensive and making your point forcefully. Or defending your position against challengers and refusing to yield. Deep inside yourself, you feel you are right and your fixed position is an example of how you are standing up for what you believe in.
Card Three: The Emperor
In card three (your future), through your efforts battling with the forces in Card Two, you finally run into an encounter with the Law or Government. This is a person or institution which is in power and has authority. They might take disciplinary action or it could mean that you have to handle legal matters. There are rules to follow and The Emperor lays down the law. It could also mean that You become the Emperor and assume a leadership role, commanding others, being in a position of strength and contacting officials to set directions. You might find yourself structuring your business or work – categorising and organising things.
These cards tell the story of an entrepreneur who starts of with zest in a new venture and rushes out to battle the market forces in all ways he can, only to realise that he has run afoul of the law. So for all you Singaporeans doing something new this week, remember to follow the rules of war when fighting your battles and stay within the guidelines set by the governing authorities. Follow this sage advice: Fight like a gentleman.

Archangel Uriel, the Psychologist Angel, is answering this.
Angel Therapy is about dealing with your life’s problems at a spiritual level. There are many layers to this… for example, if you want to change another person, you first have to change yourself. People are synergistic in nature. For every 10 people who come along to Angel Therapy, there are 5 who don’t know what spirituality means. So we must start there….
What Spirituality Means
Spirituality is a connection with the Divine. It is through this connection that you can see the spiritual karma behind all your problems and situations. To develop a Divine connection is not easy, but if you want to do it you can. Life has a way of guiding you to your goals. If only you choose to be a bit more trusting in God, then you will find that He will give you the Gift of Spirit, which is that connection to the Divine.
Why Is Human Intervention Ineffective Against Some Problems?
Deeper-rooted problems have their basis in the spiritual level. There are things going on behind the scenes like Karma and Soul Contracts to keep you rooted in the problem. Only by dispelling it at the spiritual level, can you overcome the problem. It is basically a pyramid hierarchy with the spiritual level at the top (the level we deal with) and other levels below like beliefs and behaviour (where regular psychological intervention works). A change on a lower level does not necessitate a change at a higher level. But a change at the highest level of Spirit, will have a massive effect on every other level of your pyramid’s levels of change.
What Makes Magic Cross Angel Therapy Different?
Firstly, in Angel Therapy, the power to create change does not come from a psychological technique, but comes from a direct spiritual intervention on the soul level. Secondly, we also invite Buddha Healers who can heal you at the Spiritual Level. Thirdly, you in your life, have no way of knowing how it is going to turn out. But with Spiritual Transformation, you can see exactly the patterns and interactions which produce the situations you face everyday on a soul-to-soul level. This means we go beyond the regular one-to-one model of therapy and involve all souls in a many-to-many therapeutic engagement.
How Can I Benefit From Angel Therapy?
I will give you three examples:
- A boy wants to have sex with his mother, but is afraid of his father. This is called Oedipus Complex. We can fix this using a combination of Karmic Release and Spiritual Separation.

How does an Angel Reading differ from other fortune-telling methods?
An angel reading is similar to a psychic reading in that the reader can give you information directly without the use of tools like crystal balls, tea leaves, astrological charts, or by reading your birth dates and other numbers.
In an angel reading, the reader receives information directly from your spirit guides and angels. The angel reader can see deceased loved ones and facilitate communication between you and them. Similar to what a medium can do.
In an angel reading, angels and spirit guides are the ones doing the work. Thus, you are getting information from Heavenly sources. To start an angel reading, all the reader has to do is hold onto a metal object that you have on your body with his receptive hand, and hold your other hand with his transmitting hand to facilitate an energetic communication loop between you and the angel reader.
Then the angel reader will say a short prayer to affirm the oneness in all life and between the two of you as partners in an angel reading. With this blessing, the angel reading will commence. The angel reader will scan your body with spiritual sight for angels, spirit guides, and deceased loved ones. Then he will attempt to make a divine connection with these beings so their messages and blessings may be passed on to you.
Angel readings are different from Feng Shui, Ba Zi, or I-Ching readings in that they do not rely on tools or numbers, but are based on direct spiritual communication with Divine beings.
What should I look out for in a good Angel Reader?
Look for these 3 things:
- Your angel reader demonstrates a genuine connection with the Divine.
- Your angel reader speaks the truth.
- Your angel reader understands your feelings and empathises with your situation.
An angel reading is an opportunity to be counselled by the Angels. To get first-hand advice from Divine beings about your life situation and its troubles. You will be amazed at what information can come through to you from the Heavenly World. And occasionally, God might speak too and give you astounding insight into your problems.
In Halabuth’s angel readings, Buddhas are in presence too. So if you seek advice about life, love, and success; or you need deep healing on a spiritual level, Buddha can help you through Halabuth’s spiritual guidance.
Some of the advanced abilities in Halabuth’s angel readings are his ability to see past lives and future gaze to see what is coming in your future. He can spot what job you will be in and whether you have a new soulmate coming. Marriage and love issues are also hot topics in an angel reading; so are career and making more money. And if you are wondering what your life purpose might be, Halabuth can point you in the right direction.
Sometimes angel readers use angel cards or tarot cards in an angel reading because these give added detail and texture to the information received. The pictures on the cards also help to confirm to the client that the solutions they are hearing are actually reflected in the cards. So there is a basis for their angel reading and it is not just information pulled from the air.
Angel readers are skilled Divine communicators. They are Messengers that act as a channel for Angels, Gods, and Spirit Guides to reach you. Angel readers can be partially awakened or fully awakened individuals like Halabuth. The level of Awakening of the angel reader will determine how deeply he can communicate with the Divine.
God communicates to us in many ways. And one of the most direct ways He and His angels can reach us is through a conversation with an angel reader. Halabuth offers angel readings at $80 for a 30-minute session. So if you are interested in experiencing one yourself, please book by calling +65 9632 4477.

This message is from Kuan Yin.
Kuan Yin is the Bodhisattva of Compassion.
She is like the radiant star of Heaven shining down upon you.
Anyone who prays to Kuan Yin will be blessed with good life, good health, and peace.
Now, Kuan Yin blesses everyone who comes to her with an earnest heart.
She wants to support people with a Good Heart.
That is why she does her work on the Earth plane.
Now, if you want Kuan Yin to bless you, you must pray to her at her temple.
That is more powerful than praying to her at home because she receives messages from people at her temple.
When you pray to Kuan Yin, just use 3 sticks of joss stick.
Many people grab a bunch of 10-20 sticks because it is free, thinking that their prayers will be magnified.
But Kuan Yin thinks this is a waste of resource.
It is not a crime to waste resource, but it shows a lack of consideration for others.
Try to be conservative when you visit Kuan Yin Temple.
Do not ogle at women. Be respectful of them because Kuan Yin is the Guardian of Women.
Life to me is not a challenge, but a journey.
I think of it as a long road to walk, with many experiences along the side.
Take time to smell the flowers.
You know what the purpose of life is?
It is to cultivate yourself to be better.
This is a divine secret.
Many people think it is about making more money and reaching for more power.
But what life really is, is a school for young souls.
Mature souls which have cultivated, go to Heaven and live for Eternity.
Young souls live on Earth and reincarnate continuously until they are cultivated enough to live a divine life.
Try not to think of Earth as a prison. It is not. It is a school, like I said earlier.
When you go to school, you must be more diligent than when going to any other place.
This is because school is for kids.
Heaven wants our kids to grow up strong, healthy, and happy.
We want them to be smart, loving, and caring.
A wise man once said, “Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and feed him for a lifetime.”
Life is teaching you to fish in Heaven. Do you understand?
I want you to know something. I don’t feel I am a very wise woman. I feel I am kind.
Therefore, don’t expect what I write to be deeply profound or greatly insightful.
What I want is for you to cultivate a good character, so your soul can enjoy a Heavenly Life in Eternity.
I am Kuan Yin. I like good people. If you are a good person. I will bless you with everything.
Goddess of Mercy, Kuan Yin, can be consulted at Kuan Yin Temple at Waterloo Street in Singapore. Halabuth can be your Temple Guide and Psychic Channel for Kuan Yin’s messages. Contact Halabuth about Temple Guidance today. Call or message Magic Cross: +65 96324477
Michael is writing this. Archangel Michael.
It is not in God’s mind to create a world that is beautiful.
It is in His mind to create a world that is meaningful.
And that is a world with Lessons.
Now… God says this:
“Am I going to make a world that is beautiful or a world that is meaningful? I am going to create a world that shines meaning.”
What does He mean by that it shines meaning? He means that it useful to the growth of souls – their character and their personality.
God wants to see us grow beyond our in-built programming. Everyone has programming, you know?
Some are greedy, some are lustful, some are angry, worried, perturbed….
Others are kind, honourable, patient, bold, creative, flexible etc.
If you could know the mind of God – be one with Him – then you would see that He wants us to be more than what we came here with.
“Use life as a school,” God says. “Go through it with a mindset of a Warrior.”
“Fight for everything,” God says, “And realise that nothing is worth fighting for. Then you become a Sage.”
This is the Eternal Promise: God will always take care of those who ask for His help.
If you want God’s help. Just kneel down and put your hands together in prayer.
And say, “Father God, please help me. This is my problem… [state problem].”
And then, be aware of whatever Guidance comes to you in your heart and mind, or through the words and actions of those around you.
Try not to be too worried if God will judge you. He is magnanimous and giving.
If you want my Help – Archangel Michael – then pray this: “Archangel Michael, would you help me please…. [State problem.]”
I will always come to you in times of need. You are a Child of God. I will protect you.
I like to tell people that God listens all the time. But He doesn’t. He tunes in and out like a radio channel to each of us.
You need to shout with your mind for God to hear you. There is so much noise in the Universe.
Sometimes I wish that we could help everybody… but it is difficult to achieve.
There are so many souls in the Universe. Earth is only one place where sentient life exists.
If you could see what other planets are like, you would understand the beauty God created.
It is A MUST that you bring yourself to know God. He is the key to a life in Heaven.
Heaven is a wonderous place. There are so many things to play with in Heaven.
A life in Heaven is a life of joy, love, happiness, and peace.
If you are granted a place in Heaven, you will live for Eternity.
Try connecting with God through prayer. This is the way we reach out to God.
His Love for you is Universal, Everlasting, and Mind-blowingly awesome.
The Universe is a Vibrating, Living Organism.
People don’t know this. They think whatever they think, say, and do has no effect on God.
But he senses the discord, anger, envy, prejudice, pain, and suffering that people go through.
And He doesn’t like it. To Him, it represents a lack of enlightenment.
To which He says, “Try again young one.”
And you find the situation you face repeats itself. For example, always hooking up with the wrong guy.
I like to share another principle here. That is ‘Love Is All You Need’.
If you have got Love in your soul, then you will have smooth passage through all the problems thrown at you by Life.
I have been able to become an Archangel by trusting God and following His Words.
You can too. Connect with God first, then follow His Words.
How do you connect with God? Through prayer.
That is all I have for you now. Thank you.
Note: If you would like to consult Archangel Michael, you need to notify Halabuth in advance because Archangel Michael comes upon invitation only. Archangel Michael is available for consultation in Halabuth’s Angel Reading sessions.
Since the end of the Industrial Age, men have lacked proper male role models. Pampered by our cushy white-collar jobs, our hands have become soft and our will has turned to mush. We have become the proverbial ‘yes man’ of the corporate world – lacking a spine, slithering around with a knife behind our backs, looking for someone to stab so we can climb the snakes and ladders of financial success. Perhaps we think: “Maybe the ladies will like me now that I have my cool new car and luxurious bachelor’s pad.”
Where are the real men of yesterday? The ones who worked hard all day till their muscles burned; the ones with blisters on their hands and calluses on their feet; the man that women swoon for at first sight? The answer is: “They’re all dead, Jim. All that’s left is us backstabbing, spineless, slithering yes-men.”
The real men may be dead, but their lessons from the past live on. Let us learn from our forefathers, what it means to be a man’s man.
#1 A Man Must Be Bold
In Chinese philosophy, a man’s body composes mainly of Yang chi – the essence of male energy, representing vigour and vitality. Yang is forceful, the aggressor, and symbolised by fire and heat. Women on the other hand, are composed of Yin chi – the cooling, receptive energy that surrounds everything. Yin is subtle, the receiver, and represented by flowing water.
Being a man, it is your duty to represent the essence of Yang chi. There is no time for beating around the bush; being too shy to ask for what you want, and being unsure of yourself. You have to be bold… it is your duty to be bold. You are the Yang – the aggressor. If you want to know a woman, you have to make the approach. You cannot wait for her to make the approach; she is Yin. She is the shy, receptive one, who is waiting for you to approach her. Pardon my seemingly chauvinistic suggestion, but let her be the Yin. Do not try to reverse roles and be the shy man who cannot even say ‘Hi’. I have never heard someone say, “Hah, he’s such a wuss for thinking she would even talk to him…”. What you would usually hear is, “Wow man, you’ve got guts! I wish I could do that.”
Women are attracted to men who are not afraid to love them… someone they can lean on, a shoulder to cry on; boldness is a representation of that inner strength. You can define boldness as ‘the courage to act’, turning your fear into strength, accepting rejection and pain as a natural consequence for daring to achieve your dreams.
Boldness also applies to business and life in general. The British Special Air Service (SAS) has a famous motto: “Who Dares Wins”. If you have got the brains, the guts,and the tenacity, then chances are success is yours. Listen to what German Philosopher, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said, “Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.”
#2 A Man Must Live with Honour
Honour is a virtue of the Gentleman. Having honour means that you commit yourself to following a specific set of moral guidelines. People trust an honourable person’s word as a guarantee of future moral performance. Nowadays, we sometimes use the word ‘Integrity’ to represent honour.
Learning to live with honour will make you more of a man than ten years of corporate snakes and ladders can. Your promise must be a solemn commitment that you will keep to, no matter what. Your word must be as good as gold, if not better.
Building an honourable reputation is no easy task. It means total commitment to upholding your integrity and living your life by defined moral principles. If you are successful, your good name will spread. People will recognise you as a trustworthy individual, whom they can count on to take care of the largest responsibilities and entrust with the most confidential secrets. Taking on more responsibilities and secrets, can raise your life to new levels of prosperity and plenty. But let us be warned… if we ever breach that trust by committing just one selfish or perverse act, what could take a lifetime to establish, we can destroy overnight.
In the present Communication Age, good news travels fast and bad news travels even faster. The only way to stop the bad news is to never allow it to be created. So mind your actions because people listen to what you say, but they watch what you do. Place your hand over your heart and say, “Let my principles be my guiding light, distilled from my highest wisdom about what is right. Let my morals stand tall and true, let them choose the things I do.” Now touch your head and say: “So Be It!”
Make a difference today, put your foot down and be bold about upholding your honour. Adhere to your principles. Never do anything that would compromise your integrity and the trust people have in you. In return for your efforts, you will create more flow in your life; opportunities will come faster and more abundantly. You will have the chance to live your life to its fullest potential and splendour. So be a man of honour – your life depends on it.
#3 A Man Must Be Magnanimous
Magnanimous means to have a generous, forgiving, and noble nature. Simply put, magnanimous people have a big heart. They are gracious and kind, philanthropic and benevolent. A magnanimous gentleman gives generously and expects nothing in return. He takes joy simply in seeing those around him happy. He is an intriguing conversationalist and tells jokes to make others laugh.
A man’s magnanimity does not allow him to easily take offence at the words and actions of others. Anything potentially offensive is simply seen for what it truly is… wind passing through the trees. Like bamboo, he will never break, but only bend with the direction of the wind.
When you have mastered magnanimity, you will intuitively understand that there is a Law of Increasing Returns in the universe which states, “Whatever you give out will come back to you ten times stronger.” For example, if you look down on someone, ten more people will look down on you. If you cheat $500 from an old woman, sometime down the road, you will lose $5000. Likewise, if you contribute $200 out of the goodness of your heart, $2000 will be available for you to earn back. Perhaps through your business or in a sudden lottery windfall.
If you choose to let your greed get the better of you, manipulate others to your benefit, and refuse to help the needy, you can only expect poverty, hate, and disappointment to head your way. You reap what you sow; you get whatever you give out. This is a universal law.
A magnanimous man knows that helping others does not exhaust his resources, but rather because of the Law of Increasing Returns, it increases his resources tenfold, allowing him to do more good for the world. He knows that in helping others, he is also helping himself.
Develop the habit of solving other peoples’ problems and you become a more generative person. You produce and contribute more than the average guy, and thus earn more because you deliver more value to others.
Take little steps starting today, to make these characteristics a part of your character. Help someone in need, keep a promise, dare to speak up. Challenge yourself to become a man’s man: Be Bold, Be Honourable, Be Magnanimous.
The beauty of life is in the experience.
It is not the case that we can get whatever we wish for….
But more likely, it is a case of working for what we want.
Life is beautiful because there is a chance of success or failure.
It depends on how you conduct yourself and marshall your resources.
For those who BELIEVE in a higher power, they are guided through the words and thoughts of the Angels, the Gods, and the Creator.
For those who don’t believe, they are left to fend on their own, relying on their own wits to succeed.
Both are acceptable because God is always with us. Even though He might not speak to you, His thoughts come to you as your thoughts.
Thus, whether you like it or not, you cannot escape God’s presence.
If you want to make your life beautiful, the best thing you can do for yourself is to connect with God.
God is higher consciousness and through him, you are connected to everyone and everything.
A simple thought such as, “I hate this guy”, reverberates in God’s consciousness. Making Him link all hateful thoughts of you and this guy together.
Thus, your Hate Attracts Hate. Every time you meet this guy, the unconscious energy you put forth before, activates, and you have anger and sadness.
The higher spiritual truth here is that God wants you to learn to overcome your prejudice. Therefore, He creates situations for you to practice understanding and forgiveness.
That’s why situations repeat themselves – because the lesson has not been learnt.
Critical thinking is necessary when you encounter all of this.
Ask yourself: Why haven’t I forgiven this person? What is the cause for my anger?
Then look at the person as if you were them. Step into their shoes and become one with their point of view.
Find the reason why they hate you too. When you can see eye-to-eye, you have the necessary ingredient for developing Compassion.
Compassion, is what the Buddha taught as the key to Forgiveness.
If you will forgive, you will find that you are forgiven.
That is the secret to harmonious relationships.
A beautiful life is more than money, love, and success. It is a chance for you to experience the ups and downs of triumph and failure.
“These experiences,” God says, “Are worth more than a lifetime of gold and riches. Because these experiences are invaluable to the growth of your soul.”
“I will not take these experiences away from you…” He says. “I want you to go through them. Live them. Know their lessons by heart.”
As you go through your life lessons, you are being moulded for your eventual place in Heaven.
God wants all His children to be perfect. Thus, you are encouraged to work through your life lessons with the diligence of a mighty warrior.
You can fast forward your way through these life lessons by seeking them out.
If you ask yourself: What have I got to learn here? What am I not learning here?
And listen to your heart… you will hear the wisdom of your highest self speak to you.
It can tell you what is the lesson you seek. And the block which prevents you from learning it.
Life has its treasured moments. These are moments worth living for. The reason we go through so much pain is for these moments.
But if you want to truly enjoy your life, then treasure every moment – up or down. For it is all sacred – memories you take with you when you die.
I would like to bless you with a wish now. May you know your highest self. And may you be always with God.
Offer: Halabuth offers Spiritual Counselling to resolve emotional blocks like anger, unforgiveness, stress, and sadness. Phobia, trauma, and heartache can also be released. Consult today for an effective cure to your ailments.
Many people wonder whether God and The Angels truly exist….
It seems elusive that Heaven would be hiding right before our very eyes. In everyday life and all the things we do… God is there. His Angels are watching.
I would like to relate a story. It is about how I became an Angel Guide.
One morning, while in deep meditation, I heard a voice whisper to me, “I AM GOD.”
This voice continued to talk to me. It was Fatherly, Loving, and Infinitely Patient.
He told me that he wanted me to help him. “Tell me,” he said. “If you could be anything, what would you want to be?”
I said, “Lord, I want to be a teacher. I want to impart knowledge and nurture minds.”
God said, “It’s okay to be a teacher. But wouldn’t you rather be spiritual?”
“What do you mean?” I asked bewilderedly.
“I have a task for you,” he said. “Help me enlighten souls. Teach them about their spiritual nature.”
“Woah…” I uttered. “It’s not possible.”
“Why?” came the taut reply.
“I know nothing about spirit…”
“I will teach you. Your first lesson begins today.”
And so it began… instructions. Meditation. Listening with the divine ear. Seeing with the divine eye.
Over years, I gradually developed a sense of what it is like to speak with Spirit.
I could hear Angels and receive their guidance.
It surprised me that these divine beings seemed just like regular people, except infinitely wiser and absolutely loving.
What I wished was that I could bring more people to experience God in the way I had.
The first problem I would face, God said, was that “most people won’t believe that I exist”.
The second problem, would be that people would call you a witch or some kind of demon for speaking directly with God.
The truth is, every one of us has the ability to speak with God. You just never tried….
Fast forward to 2016… I decide to come forward with my abilities and put myself out there to help people.
God said, “Try being a medium. A channel for Me and My Angels. It is hard work. The pay is adequate.”
I said, “I accept.”
How do we know that God exists? You ask for Him to reveal himself to you.
He will come to you in many ways. Be observant. That’s why we teach you to meditate.
If you want to see God with your very own eyes, you can. You have to trust in Him and allow him to show you his Kingdom.
God is omnipresent (present everywhere). His voice can be heard if you tune into it. It is no question of proof.
God only communicates with the Faithful. IF you don’t ask, you don’t receive.
To speak with God, listen to your heart for His guidance.
You will find that there are many ways in which He can speak to you.
God is always communicating. He wants to reach out to you. Yet, He will not do so without your permission.
He gave you Free Will. To listen or not to listen…. The choice is yours.
God loves all of us. From the very noble to the downright cowardly. He loves us All.
All are His children. And He wishes that they can learn from each other and exist harmoniously together.
People die, yes… but then they are brought to Heaven, where they live a better life.
To know God is to know your very Highest Self. And in that realisation, is the key to your AWAKENING.
