Guest contributor: Jill Wiggins of Wiggins Words and Images. Here, a short, sweet story about her daughter.
A while back, I posted on my blog a story about my daughter’s ongoing illness. She had been so sick that she wasn’t functioning, so I was taking care of her child, my granddaughter, to help out.
I wanted to help my daughter even more, though, so the day I wrote that story in my blog, I found a beautiful picture of her and her sister, both in blooming good health, and decided to start thinking of her that way: well and happy.
Later that week, the next time I saw her, I was blown away by the difference. She had seen an acupuncturist and decided to try going gluten-free, and she looked (and still looks) wonderful. I can’t take any credit for it, but it sure seemed miraculous to me. There must be some deep psychology at work there, because I don’t believe in miracles or magic.
Inspiration from the other side.
You’ve been on the spiritual path for a good while now. You’ve read the books. Maybe even met a guru or two. Sometimes, though, you need a different kind of inspiration. Inspiration from someone who knows how hard this inner peace stuff really is.

There are hundreds of spiritual techniques for overcoming depression and increasing inner peace. Here, stories about the ones that actually work. (In some posts, I rate the practices on a scale of 1-10, too. Sort of like county fair pumpkins, but more spiritual.)
