Many people experienced traumatic situations, or began to question their purpose, which triggered a storm of emotions for some. While some are handling these changes well, it is overwhelming for others, because the energies are currently much more intense, and somewhat imbalanced.
With Jupiter now in Scorpio, for the next year, a lot of stuff will come to the surface on a personal and political level, which may be a little painful, but necessary to help create positive change. Read the rest of this entry »
Whenever I do laundry, I tend to think of my grandma, especially when I take out the clothes and un-wrinkle each item, before tossing it into the dryer. I then think of something she said back when I was a young girl. She said it is like a gift to do laundry, as it gives you time to relax and meditate.
She was a wise woman. Sometimes when we are doing mindless things it can be the perfect time to just think! Doing the laundry, I often think of things, deeply. And sometimes I actually receive the answers to questions I have had in the back of my mind for quite some time. Read the rest of this entry »
Although I do not use lithomancy in my readings, I have been drawn to gems, precious stones and crystals since I was in my teenage years.
When I was in high school, I would fancy the gems in the shopping mall jewelry shops. I would save up my allowance and job money to buy a genuine sapphire ring I could afford, since it is my birthstone.
Sapphire is considered one of the most precious stones, along with ruby, emerald, and diamond. It is also very durable, second only to diamond on the Mohs hardness scale. Named after the scientist who invented it, this scale of hardness is based on the ability of one mineral to scratch another. Read the rest of this entry »
Plants are everywhere, even in urban environments – from the windowsill potted plant to the hundred-year-old oak in a city park. What you may not know is that plants, just like people and animals, are psychic and react strongly to the energies around them.
In a well-known experiment, scientist Cleve Backster, who was at the time working with police departments to develop polygraph (lie detector) machines, attached a plant to one of these machines. He found that the plant detected intent. For example, the plant reacted with humanlike responses, such as fear and anxiety, to his thoughts of burning the plant.
The plant also showed an empathic response to pain, such as when Backster cut his finger. The results were even the same when he directed his thoughts toward the plant from some distance away. All this from a common potted plant found in an office! Read the rest of this entry »
It is said that pain relief is the number two easiest effect that can be instilled through hypnosis (number one being cessation of habits and phobias.) The sensation of pain may also be classified as a habit.
I looked for a definition of pain to include here, and found that pain may be beyond description, as the definitions went on, and on, and on. The following adapted outtake perhaps best states where a hypnotist can intervene.
With pain, either imprinting or conditioning for transmitting, is stamped into the pain pathways, creating a memory of the pain that replaces the normal memory: thus the feeling of reoccurring pain. Read the rest of this entry »
As you absorb and align with the new consciousness, the new energy on your planet, you might be experiencing an array of emotions, feeling unbalanced, teetering between discourse and harmony. Part of what you are feeling is the collective consciousness breaking through.
There is some resistance within the collective and you are helping all to rise up. There is also some resistance within your own circle of influence. There are those that are moving with this transition easily, staying grounded in their light, but there are many who are feeling an influx of fear, feeling overwhelmed by the disharmony that the unknown brings.
All is well.
Whether you are picking up from energies outside of you, in the collective, in your circle of influence, or from the ethers, it does not interfere with your own ability to stay attuned and aligned within your own personal power. Read the rest of this entry »
Fall is my favorite time of the year. I always feel much more connected to subtle energies, elementals and spirits, as though they are like people we see in everyday life. The veil between the worlds thin as we approach the end of the natural year. Lately, I began feeling even more connected to Goddess energies than I usually am this time of the year.
I have also been doing some serious thinking on the mysterious Lilith Points that are in everyone’s Astrology charts. Lilith is described as the point in our Astrological charts that is all and everything that cannot be explained, but is known as “what is.” I found myself meditating on this puzzling description and the answer eventually came to me. It was not as sinister as I thought it would be, and yet it is scary to think about. Read the rest of this entry »
Many dreams are just a result of some of the mundane information we take in on a daily basis. These are usually the kind of dreams which make no sense at all.
Some dreams are simply reflective of both our fears and desires. For example, swimming close to sharks would be an obvious fear for most people, whereas winning the lottery is what a lot of folks would love to happen. Read the rest of this entry »
