“They don’t listen to anything I say,” are words we often hear. People long to be acknowledged, and from my experience this is something people in many parts of the world are missing, as we all rush from place to place. The inhabitants of a modern day home tend to become like passing ships in the night to their loved ones, and hardly communicate with one another.
Really listening to another goes straight to the heart. It opens the empath and the medical intuitive’s eyes to that which any X-ray or computerized tomography (CT) scan cannot. Active listening is the most powerful catalyst for change in any healing therapy. Read more »
Walking into a store to do some last minute shopping, I saw an old lady walking slowly, and obviously struggling to make her way across the parking lot, with her walker. She wore a very bright pink coat and her hair was styled in a way that made me think of the 1920s.
She was definitely having a hard time getting around, slouching and not able to stand straight up, even though she was a distance behind me. I was not in a rush, and try never to be because life is much more enjoyed when we don’t feel like we have to be in a race.
Standing there for at least half a minute or more, holding the door, she stared into my face as she walked up. She seemed super happy, although it was hard for her to smile. She looked old and tired, like she may be on her final trip out on her own. Read more »
Your energy is best spent this week turning inward to hear the voice of your soul. You have some big decisions to make (or little, regardless) and this is not the time to run headlong into anything, throwing caution to the wind.
This is the time to take a deep breath, step back and consider all of your options. Take the time to do your research and spend time in meditation and prayer asking for guidance from your Spiritual Council. When you take these steps before you make any decision in your life, you will be leading from your soul instead of your ego, and all of your life experiences will become aligned with your Divine life mission.
Many of you walk around dazed and confused crying, “Oh, I don’t know what to do!” This is because you do not take the time to slow down and tune in. You are mesmerized by the fast-paced, stressed out life of being a human. And as you stay caught up in this daze you will continue to draw to you experiences that are endlessly frustrating, annoying and less than satisfying. Read more »
The first weeks of a new year is always a happy occasion for me. A new year to me has a refreshing feel, as though everything that happened last year can be placed in a box and forgotten, even tossed out with the trash if I like, while the time ahead is still enticingly waiting for me to fill with new plans.
We make resolutions, and say, “Out with old, and in with the new.” Because of this a new year has a healing effect on us, helping us to put the past behind us and change ourselves to create a better future.
When re-creating ourselves, it helps to know what lies ahead. If we can glimpse future events, we can avert problems and embrace the good that is coming to us. We would also understand our limitations and strengths more, so we can plan effectively. Read more »
Whether it’s ghosts, shadow people, Tall Man with a Hat, The old Hag, or pixies, we’ve all experienced mystical beings in some form or another. Some of us have had minor insignificant encounters, while some of us deal with these entities every day. And, there are those who experience very violent encounters with some of these beings. I personally, have had my fair share of the worst kinds of attacks. And, I find myself dealing with the mischievous little pixies almost daily.
If you don’t know what a pixie is, let me explain. They are little spirit beings. About the size of a dragonfly. Some suggest they are cute little fairies, such as Tinkerbell in Peter Pan by JM Barrie. Others depict them as gruesome and very disturbing to look upon. I honestly can’t say for certain, as they move so quickly I have never gotten a good look at one of them. Read more »
What is faith? That’s a really good question! I was raised an atheist and was taught life and all that happened was solely the result of my own efforts – meaning all failure was my fault and all success came from my efforts.
Whew! This is at the heart of American culture. Just do it. No fear.
Even the New Agers believe if it happened to you it is because you were thinking it. The ultimate guilt trip. This means, I can have no bad thoughts or they will manifest like the devil itself… and it will be all my fault.
I know for a fact the New Agers are wrong, because with the amount of pain and tough issues I have had to process so far in my life, I should have been able to blow up the world by now. Read more »
A decade ago, I congratulated a client on her pregnancy. She was a soon-to-be single mom. Lucy was battling her own demons, and insecurity after fighting the battle with alcohol and drugs, and had fallen head over heels for Justin during a recent stint in rehab. Naturally, she was devastated when the man she loved did not show the slightest interest in ever being a part of their son’s life.
Lucy was a beautiful, and exceptionally talented young woman, but had no idea how special she was. She was a slip of a thing and seemed so vulnerable. She only had a couple of friends, since so many others, as well as family, had given her the cold shoulder because of her substance abuse. Like myself, she’d had many slips by falling off the wagon, but I believe that to this day, she is winning the battle. Read more »
Dreams represent messages from the unconscious to reveal our innermost psyche — that which is not known or acknowledged by our conscious self. Dreams are windows to the unconscious, the intuitive part of ourselves. Carl Jung calls this “the shadow.”
According to Jung, the shadow represents non-thought the conscious thought process does not wish to acknowledge. For example, many people have dreams that foretell of events, but consciously it may be too painful or threatening for them to consciously consider. The shadow-self thus protects us, until the message becomes too powerful and breaks through in a dream. Read more »
