Some people never question or challenge any of the things they have heard since childhood. Some of these limiting beliefs and ideas have been passed down from generation to generation, and have remained the same for thousands of years. Unless we question some of these outdated beliefs or information, we will stay stuck in limited thinking – always inside the box.
Sometimes we stay stuck thinking or feeling only how our parents of grandparents felt and thought. For example, people whose parents or grandparents lived through a great depression, or have had to endure a scarcity food or heat supply, the primary survival necessities, may feel they have to save everything. What if I will need it someday? I paid so much for it and its too perfectly good to discard. What if, what if.
Citrine is a variety of Quartz. It can be pale to golden yellow, to honey, even brown. It can also hold rainbows or sparkle inclusions. The name stems from the French word citron which is lemon. It was used as a gem in Ancient Greece, however most of the Citrine sold today is actually heat-treated Amethyst or Smoky Quartz. Natural Citrine is pale yellow. Heat-treated Citrine and natural Citrine are said to have different uses and metaphysical properties.
It is traditionally known as The Merchant’s Stone, because it brings money to a cashbox. In fact, this is one reason I have come to like this stone. This is a stone of success, abundance, prosperity, and attraction of wealth. It also encourages generosity and sharing. It helps with acquiring fast money. We can carry it to bring money and to stop the extreme outpouring of money. Read the rest of this entry »
Many of you tend to ‘collect stuff’ which actually tends to hold you down, and smother you and your spirit. As you do some deep cleaning of your physical space, you will find that you begin to breathe easier and the weight on your chest dissolves. Find one thing that you can pass along, as sharing your good fortune with others also raises your vibration and brings you into alignment with joy and goodwill. One person’s junk is another person’s treasure. Read the rest of this entry »
Raccoons are indeed considered to be night varmints and scavengers. They can destroy property and be a real nuisance. However, spiritually the raccoon has a much more constructive significance and they are the perfect animal totem for Thanksgiving.
Traditionally, the raccoon, when it comes into your life, is referred to as “the one who carries the medicine of the protector of the underdog” and “the one who provides for the young, infirm and the elderly.” Because of its mask-like features, it is often unfairly referred to as The Masked Bandit, but when a raccoon comes into your space, you are being asked to contact your inner warrior, to become a protector and generous provider for those in need.

Insomnia is not only widespread these days; it is a negative influence which may lead to depression and anxiety, substance abuse, decreased mental functioning, and even suicide. With less than half of adults getting their optimal levels and duration of sleep, it’s crucial that all of us look after that part of ourselves.
Relying on sleep medications can have long-term side effects, and after a while, we become dependent on them. Instead of using gimmicks or habit-forming medications to get more sleep, all you need are three natural ingredients and this simple recipe for a sleep elixir.
When I read for a client, I am not just reading their energy, but I am also reading the energy of their loved ones, co-workers, friends, their home environment, as well as their work environment and community. During a psychic reading in can become evident, for example, that the home environment is toxic, stagnant, or energetically polluted, which has a negative effect on my client.
This pollution is not always metaphysical in origin. Sometimes it is caused by a physical contaminant. For example, it can be a mildew issue, which will make me smell mold and sense moisture, like a smothering humid feeling, or see black mildew spots on a psychic level. The toxicity can also be due to a leak of actual chemicals, bugs or something else that has become a threat to the client’s health. Read the rest of this entry »
When we think of abundance, our general thinking is that it refers to money and finances. It is true that with the energy of money we can create the life we love, and we can be in a place to support others or causes that we love. But abundance goes beyond mere wealth or financial prosperity. Consider the abundance of time, abundance of friends, abundant health and well-being, and the gracious abundance of love.
Sometimes we are just stuck and don’t know where to start in our desire to manifest abundance in the many areas of our lives. So let’s take a look at where to begin. Where in your life currently are you feeling the most conflict, or pain? You can begin there! From my experience and working with others, once you start examining your belief in this area and shifting it, all the other areas start to shift too. Read the rest of this entry »
In modern society we are all about ‘just do it’ and ‘no fear.’ We worship Yang energy – the energy of doing-ness. The power of the flow, the wisdom of psychic guidance is the opposite – don’t just do something, sit there! The problem is, we are afraid that if we hold still we are quitting, resigning, giving up, procrastinating. So we live in a culture that prefers to emphasize the Yang, and shy away from the Yin.
Have you ever tried to get through to a friend who will just not shut up? That is how it is for Spirit, God, Source, the Universe. When we don’t hold still and shut up, nothing else can come in to guide us. We are then at the mercy of our crazy, human mind with its puny imagination, limited by the imagined boundaries typical of earth plane thinking. Read the rest of this entry »
