Healing Whispers: Communication with Your Spirit Guides and Angels

Within this course, you are invited to explore ways you may use your innate intuitive gift to communicate with your spirit guides, angels, and deceased loved ones. You may be delighted to discover how easily you can cross the spiritual bridge between worlds and enrich your life with love, guidance, healing, and wisdom. Intuition is a Divine gift, and communication with your spirit guides and angels may be enhanced by "fine-tuning" your psychic intuition. It can serve as a guiding force in your daily life.

Spiritual Movies: Inspirational Movies to Breathe in Spirit
By Linda Pendleton

As long as movies have been made, the theme of angels, guides, ghosts or spirits has been woven into story lines. Who hasn't seen It's a Wonderful Life again and again? - And still cries at each viewing? Such movies can serve to inspire, define, and expand the possibilities for a generation. When Spirit is portrayed as being accessible to the average person and supports them through some difficult time or challenge, who isn't inspired to believe?

Inspiration ~ To Breathe in Spirit
The word inspiration, derived from the Latin definition, is "in-spirare -- to breathe in, to breathe in spirit." So, in essence, to be inspired is to "breathe in spirit". Artists often believe their inspiration comes from beyond - from the Muses. I have spoken with many artists and writers who often have had no idea where portions of their work have come from. Even though they may be typing the words, or holding the paint brush, they often are surprised by the words that end up on the page or by the brush strokes upon the canvas. They oftentimes joke and laugh about it but may know that their artistic expression came from elsewhere.

Movies too are a form of artistic expressions open to inspiration - so it makes sense that Spirit would make its presence known through this popular medium every now and then.

On this page, find a list of spiritual movies which fall into various categories including: inspirational, love stories, and comedies. My personal favorite spiritual movies are: It's a Wonderful Life (1946), Ghost, Michael, The Sixth Sense, Wings of Desire and the remake - City of Angels, Field of Dreams, and the classic Topper (1937) movies. What are your favorite spiritual movies and favorite spiritual movie quotes? You are invited and encouraged to share and discuss.
