Last year, I woke from a dream that had me worried about a close friend for months before he went on vacation. I vividly ‘saw’ him sliding off a dock and into the mouth of a giant shark, which savored every bit of him, before he disappeared. Alarmed, I awoke and sat up, shaken by the gruesome vision.
Knowing my friend well, I knew that if I told him about my dream he would just gently look at me with concern, as if I was crazy, and then change the subject. He would give me the same expression he gave me when I explained to him that fairies were real, but are not visible to everyone. I knew that if I pressed the subject, he might even make fun of me to all our other friends. Yet, I knew I had a responsibility to warn him of impending danger, but how? Read the rest of this entry »
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 the rest of this entry »
The Winter Solstice was celebrated in the ancient world in different traditions. It is known in pagan traditions, and others, as the ‘longest night.’ There are similarities in various world beliefs.
The sun moves into Capricorn at this time and it is the start of the new solar year. This solar occasion is often seen as the rebirth of the sun, symbolized by a Goddess and the birth of her son, celebrated as a festival of light. The ancient cultures of India, Persia, Egypt, Greece, Rome, Ireland and Wales all shared the belief of a son, born near the winter solstice on the 25th of December, and who died in the spring.
In pagan Europe, this holiday was known as Jul, which means wheel, or Yule. The ancient Egyptian myths of Isis and Osiris repeats in the story of Mary and Jesus. The modern day celebration of the birth of Jesus, is what we know as Christmas. Read the rest of this entry »
Dreams tell the hidden truth and help us to understand ourselves. Shamans and mystics believe that there are basically three types of dreams.
Lower world dreams connect us with our instincts. We see these dreams in archetypal symbols, myths, colors, nature, gods, goddesses, animas, elementals and mythical beasts and characters. There are secrets hidden in these symbols. Archetypes are also present in everyday objects such as cars, or clothes.
Middle world dreams are where we work out emotional issues in our daily lives. We dream about ourselves at work, play, and where we live. We dream of our relationships, our crushes, old flames, our family. Read the rest of this entry »
Have you ever felt a sense of déjà vu, with a person, place or object, or even an incident, yet you have never met this person, never traveled to this place, never had this experience? Have you ever had a craving to learn something, and found that learning it was very easy, or have you met a person you felt you know already? If the answer is yes, it may be because of a forgotten premonition that came to you in your dreams, or perhaps because of a past life.
Reincarnation is something I firmly believe in, and the idea that we come into each life with a unique skill set, learned life lessons, our unique personality, and a preset of the lessons our soul needs to learn. This we will take into our next incarnation. Read the rest of this entry »
I receive many calls from ladies who want to know what a certain gentleman thinks of her. I then tune into the man’s thoughts to see what is going on. Often, I can see clearly whether he loves you or not, and I can tell you what his thoughts are.
However, you are the one who sees him on the physical plane. By tuning into your own intuition, watching his body language, and noting warning signs, you can avoid falling for a man who will never care for you. If you notice the signs early on, you can also get out of a bad relationship, or avoid alienating a man who loves you, but who may just be the silent type. Read the rest of this entry »
Crystals and gemstones, as well as metals, are mostly worn as ornaments – for beauty, fashion and status. Some wear them for the purpose of mystery, symbolism, or psychism. But on a deeper level, they are spiritual allies which, along with our intent, and focus, help to protect and heal our body, mind and spirit.
Diamond engagement rings is a great example. It is said that one must never buy a diamond for oneself. Diamonds are a protective stone, bringing luck, happiness, wealth, and protection against adversity. Buying a diamond for the self, has a negative effect on the wearer. Precious and semi-precious stones and crystals should be chosen with care.
One popular way to become familiar with working with them is to wear your birthstone. Birthstones correspond metaphysically with a person’s astrological sign, the birth month, the planet that rules the zodiac sign, and the angels and spirits that correspond with that planet. It is no wonder then that wearing a birthstone enhances the life of the wearer, causing the spirit to resonate at a higher level. This helps a person to achieve the highest attributes inherent in the horoscope, and protects against adversity. Read the rest of this entry »
The vintage or retro trend is more popular than ever and has more people buying used clothing and household items, as well as antiques. But one does not usually think about the metaphysical energies that may be attached these old clothes, jewelry and pieces of furniture.
Believe it or not, ghosts sometimes do follow a beloved object purchased from an estate sale. A flea market or thrift store may be selling objects that carry the negative energy of bad relationships. Pawn shops may have beautiful jewelry for sale, but you may unknowingly pick up the grief associated with having to sell a beloved object.
Jewelry is especially problematic, and even gifts can carry negative energies. It does not matter if the jewelry was physically cleaned before you purchase it. One should spiritually cleanse every object that is second hand, to keep negative energies out of your energetic space. You can also ‘charge’ jewelry to help you with things you want to accomplish, for protection, or to attract good energies. Read the rest of this entry »
