Spiritual ceremonies, where humans gather together in a circle, are especially potent. An energetic hoop gathers over the circle to assist in the endeavor for the gathering, whether it be for the purpose of celebrating a new birth, honoring a solstice, or to express anything of importance to humanity, as individuals, or as a group.
Altars are also powerful. They are a gathering place for spirits to provide protection and shielding, to aid in a calling or, perhaps, to provide a sacred place for the energy of one who has crossed to another dimension to gather and connect. Or, we might choose to build an altar dedicated to providing an anchor for our business when we are away, the same as when we are present. Read more »
Gaslighting can be a very destructive component of a toxic relationship. It basically refers to any form of ‘reality twisting’ or ‘crazy making’ that aims to confuse or manipulate the victim. Gaslighting is used to gain power and control in the relationship, by making the victim question their reality.
The phenomenon is typically found in romantic relationships, but it can occur in all kinds of social relationships, including friendships, in the workplace and with neighbors. Sometimes it is done in an obvious way, right under the victim’s nose, but mostly it is done under the radar and you don’t always know who is gaslighting you, or even that you are being gaslighted.

There are times when we are tempted to withdraw from the world, sit around, and feel sorry for ourselves. For many of us it is all too easy to get into the rut of complaining about how everything bad only happens to us, and how unfair life is. Some of us also easily complain that other people seem to have everything, and we have so little. When this kind of thinking takes over, it may be time to ask yourself some really tough questions.
Am I in a comfort zone? Is it really too difficult to make the necessary changes to have a better life? Do I really want to get well? What benefits am I possibly getting from choosing to remain stuck? Has my circumstances or my health status become my new identity? Am I always looking in the rear-view mirror, wishing I could rewrite the past? Do I obsess about what could have, should have, would have been? Read more »
What is the difference between a medium and a psychic? Contrary to what most people think, psychics and mediums are indeed two very different kinds of gifted people. It’s important to know the different capabilities of each, in order to get accurate insights during readings.
A medium typically has psychic abilities, but not all psychics are mediums. A medium can communicate with discarnate spirits, while psychics do not. A medium serves as a link between the living and the dead, which is typically beyond the abilities of the psychic. A medium relays messages from spirits in the afterlife, including loved ones, friends and family who are deceased. Read more »
What is it that your life is full of? What have you attracted, what do you wish to change? A trip into the mind is imperative to review our past experiences and emotions, because mindset is paramount for true success. Success in career. Success in relationships. Success in finances. Success in mind.
There are countless success stories of individuals who had fewer opportunities early in life. Some came from poverty, some from a broken home. They often provide clear evidence that through the mindset of knowing that our accomplishments rest in our choices, all possibilities can exist. For centuries sacred teachings have known these principles. We in the West have not embraced them until recently. Read more »
Depression is a malady that seems to haunt us all at one time or another. It is common to feel depressed when our world is out of balance, or when it seems we are not receiving the things we most desire in our lives.
I have found that spiritual practices, such as meditation and journaling, help us to get in touch with our spirit guides and higher source, so that we can alleviate this problem more quickly and effectively, instead of treating it with medications.
Our spirit guides are a wonderful source of healing, guidance and direction. Getting in touch with our guides can indeed help us to move out of depression, for they have the ability to free and empower us on every level. Read more »
I do believe that there are bad or evil people in life. And when they cross over, they remain the same. The fleshly body of a person doesn’t determine our being. It is the spirit of a person that determines their true personality. However, I do feel that some people simply have mental problems that cause them to act evil. Once the mental disorder is cured, the true good nature of the soul comes back. Read more »
Karma is a very real thing. I know an older lady who firmly believes that she will never have to struggle coming in the door, whenever she comes home to her condo. She never has to set down any of her items to look for the right key to unlock the door and let herself in. There always seems to be someone there to let her in; people are usually going out as she is coming back in.
Amazingly, this appears to be true. I have never actually seen her having any trouble letting herself in, and it seems to be the case especially when she is bringing in groceries, or carrying a heavy load.
I asked her why she thinks this is, and she told me that when she was younger, and her legs used to worked better, she used to always help elderly people. She would help them to their car, or help them bring things in, or help them cross the street. It was something her parents taught her from a very young age – to always be ready to lend a helping hand to children and the elderly. Read more »
