I am often contacted for psychic readings about animals: missing cats, dogs present and past, sick horses and, even that brutal question as to whether it would be kinder to end an ailing animal’s suffering. Today, just such a request came in from a long-standing client, asking me to communicate with her little doggie, Patches.
She needed to know if Patches wanted to continue, or whether he preferred to be released from his physical discomfort and allowed to cross over the Rainbow Bridge. She knew he wasn’t feeling well, and yet, the veterinarians have been unable to diagnose his problem. It’s one of the most heart-wrenching requests I have been faced with in some time.
I sat quietly and envisioned Patches in my mind’s eye. He kept showing me the number 12. Before going further, I contacted Patches’ owner, and asked her the meaning of the 12. He is twelve years old, my client responded. Although the ultimate decision will be my client’s, I felt this was a subliminal message from Patches – his planned life span was to be here for 12 years.

I have counseled so many people that are normally outgoing, loving, supportive, wonderful souls, but sometimes these souls are so giving they give themselves away. They forget to protect themselves in the process. Have you ever had this presence of an emotional vampire in your life? This can happen in a love relationship or a friendship, or with a family member.
Is their needs all that count, but yours never ever do? Love is not love, and friendship is not friendship, if you put aside yourself on a daily basis. This is what we have to remind ourselves of on a continual basis. Sure, relationships are give and take, but when they seem to take and take, and there is no giving, something is off.

If anger is one of the most difficult emotions for an empath to navigate, then the ending of a relationship is definitely the most challenging experience for an empath.
Any relationship that falls apart is tough, but if you are an empath you may well find yourself trying to navigate some very overwhelming waters. Not only will you be feeling your own pain, anger and confusion, but you will also sense your partner’s feelings. Chances are you have also been sensing that something is radically amiss for some time, before your love finally went on the rocks.
Trying to make sense of what is happening, staying centered and sorting out your feelings and emotions separate from your partner’s is a very tall order. Read the rest of this entry »
The modern stereotype of a witch is that she is an ugly, old woman with a hooked nose and pointed hat, riding a broomstick or stirring up a witches brew in a huge pot. In truth a witch is someone who practices magic as part of their religion or spiritual belief system, such as Wicca or Neo-paganism.
Witches worship nature and love the Earth; they do not worship Satan. That is a myth, just as much as the idea that witches are ugly and scary. Witches are beautiful and do no harm. They believe in the rule of three, understanding that everything we do comes back to us threefold.
The more we destroy the Earth, the more we destroy ourselves. A witch’s purpose is to save the Earth. Witches relish their wild nature and align themselves with the cycles of the earth and the phases of the Moon and the stars. Read the rest of this entry »
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 »
Am I psychic? People ask this question all the time, and the answer is unequivocally, yes! As children, our psychic gifts are obvious to us in the forms of our vivid dreams and daydreams. We also experience strong intuitions about people and objects, and even our imaginary friends, who are really our spiritual guides. But what happens when we get older? Why do most of us lose this part of ourselves? It’s common to hear skeptical people say that psychic abilities do not exist. The truth is that we’re all born with a particular psychic gift, and sometimes more than one.
Think about the last time your instinct reacted strongly. Was it telling you the location of a lost object? A winning combination of lottery numbers? Perhaps the feeling that an old friend would call? These feelings are all forms of extra-sensory perception (ESP), and they are glimpses of what is to come from the universe. They’re also usually correct. Read the rest of this entry »
Do you deeply and intensely feel the emotions of others, easily get sick or injured, and have a natural connection to all things spiritual? There’s about a one-in-five chance that you may be an empath.
Being an empath is different from someone who merely feeling empathy for others. The difference is being someone who is able to turn off the flood of emotions, against someone who is not. What a difference! A true empath literally feels everything, and that can be overwhelming.
It’s in the empath’s nature to take care of others at their own expense, which is why empaths often get moody or difficult. They may need more solitary time or exposure to the natural world than other people. Despite all of this, they are a gift to themselves and others, and they can learn defenses against the constant tsunami of incoming emotions. Read the rest of this entry »
For most people the rule of thumb for choosing a psychic seems to be accuracy. Again and again, over the years, I have asked clients why they had chosen me to read for them, and the majority of time the response has always been, “Because your reviews reflect a high level of accuracy.”
I understand the logic behind the choice, but is it really that simple? Over time, some clients would drift away, while others would continue reading with me, sometimes for years. So, obviously there was something more, something deeper to the connection than just my level of accuracy.
The second deciding factor for clients appears to be referral, or word-of-mouth. If a friend had a great reading with a particular psychic, understandably one would be moved to check the psychic out for yourself. Yet, there still seemed to be something more in the mix, something that I could not put my finger on. Read the rest of this entry »
