One of the quaintest concepts, that seemed to captivate imaginations around the turn of the 18th century, were the elements and their embodiments in the form of Elemental Spirits. These beings were the personification of the Classical elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire.
In the Middle Ages, great attention was given to these four elements in terms of diagnosis, such as the Choleric being linked to the Earth, which would be thus be linked to Taurus. The Phlegmatic was linked to the water element, or Pisces, which often would diagnose lung disorders, thus the word origin for phlegm. Read the rest of this entry »
We all take for granted the sun’s diurnal and seasonal activity and its life-giving energy, but to many civilizations it was also its passage that marked the agricultural and seasonal alterations that were essential for survival and migration. For the ancients the Sun marked the passage of time, as it went through the twelve Celestial Houses of the Zodiac.
It is interesting to note that the Sun itself is one of the orbs that acquires the characteristics of every astrological house, or the personality of each zodiac sign it passes through. When we look deeper into the astrological methods used to divine the planets, we know, in part, the sun is not a planet, by a technical margin. It has a third path of travel known as the precession of the equinoxes, in which it retrogrades around the Zodiac through the twelve signs at the rate of one degree every 72 years.

Many years ago a friend of mine told me simply to choose happiness. I was thoroughly frustrated with that statement, as there was so much opposition in my life. Like most people, I have had struggles that lasted not only months, but decades. I faced adversity not only once or twice, but repeatedly. I also had to manage all these challenges on my own, due to traveling on my own, starting my own businesses, and surviving immense loss, among other things.
At the time my well-meaning friend had simply not experienced any of these life challenges to the same degree, thus I did not believe her. To make the choice to feel joy seemed resolutely trite, in the face of such constant, episodic misfortune!
In truth, she was not too far off in that statement. Except, it was not a conscious choice, or something of cultish free will. It was more of an attitude that came over me after repeated misfortune, which led to a toughening up, a new approach, a singular mindset, a resolute focus. Read the rest of this entry »
A long history remains of brilliant thinkers, scientists, politicians, religious leaders and scholars who had throughout the ages studied the mysteries. They suffered greatly, as they were infamous in their knowledge and advancement of the sciences, and thus reviled and distrusted, due to the change they brought about in human history. It often began as a study of religion and the cosmos, which opened up the doorways to new ways of thinking.
None could be a better example than Galileo Galilei, who was forced to recant on his knees, on penalty of death, that the world was not only round, but that we were orbiting the sun.
Geordiano Bruno also faced the Roman Inquisition. He was a priest, philosopher, mathematician and astrologer. He was burned at the stake for heresy due to his unorthodox cosmological theories. Read the rest of this entry »
I have always had an interest in behavioral sciences and marketing, as well as spiritual work and the paranormal, and used this as a way of studying people’s needs, and applied it to learning cultural philosophies world-wide.
What I have found in my research is that one can intuit people’s habits as if it were a science, in order to deeply understand their collective nature. This would hopefully be an expression of their mean needs, their collective needs, or the predictive ratio, in order to see what their cultural needs were. From this arose the question: is Planet Earth happy today? Do people need more, not less material goods? Do they need more, not less love and affection? Are they less, not more aggressive? Was my perception less, not more affectionate? Yes, it also forced me to evaluate myself. Read the rest of this entry »
Yet, with the trail of live commentary on the Internet and the feedback system on websites, a lot of fraud has been prevented and eliminated in recent years. Most of our clients usually come back to us, because we have a history and reputation for accuracy.
The realm of phone psychics is a deep world of intelligent, successful and curious women who love to talk, but often I have found them to be the most insightful friends and teachers I have had the pleasure to engage with. When we establish a relationship with a client we begin a mutual spiritual journey and an experience in trust. Read the rest of this entry »
When seeking guidance, a good spiritual counselor or psychic advisor can give hard, practical advice. They can be like compasses in a dark night, and they can read the signs and be forces of measure when there is no point of reference.
Some, like astrologers or diviners, simply watch for patterns, tides and symbols to pass on their messages; like data readers of the Divine they can look for clues for their clients, organize ideas and offer orientation and direction. Yet, without the reference of personal experience (the common point of comfort that our clients seek) many problems cannot be properly addressed in people’s lives. Read the rest of this entry »
One has to wonder – are there any benefits to being psychic? Does that make one more powerful, more in control, more all-seeing, more omnipotent, all powerful and omniscient? Some clients call and want to know what it means to be psychic. They want lessons in opening their chakras, they want lessons in controlling their psychic visions, and they want to become psychics. All these things are understandable. Yet, there are some cautions.
Firstly, if you have been born with the propensity to ‘see’, that is your gift. That is something that you need to learn to understand, and this may, as I believe, not be done through psychic work, but through psychological work and counseling. This really is the way. If the wizards of old knew better, and they probably did, they probably employed some of the same techniques. After all, there is no point having ability and being unable to navigate through one’s own life. Read the rest of this entry »
