Over the years I have learned from many of my colleagues the most phenomenal insights on the psychic world, which I would not have been able to have gleaned on my own. I remember one of the first books I read, which was Linda Goodman’s infamous Sun Signs manual, which kept many a infatuated person enticed with their upcoming beau in its heyday.
This was later followed by novels like Siddhartha by Herman Hesse, and books on Eastern mysticism and astral travel. At the tender age of 14 I had to investigate why my dreams where so vivid and strange. Though the awakening began at the age of three, I really found myself more interested in orthodox and mystical religious influences from hardcovers from my parents’ university library, so it was very difficult to get perspectives that were flexible in those early years.

When I pressed her about what she meant, she replied, ”Last week I knew my husband’s truck would break down. Not because it had been problematic, I just knew. Sure enough, it broke down on the way to work. It was just a thought I had before he left the house. I told him after the fact, now he thinks I’m crazy. But I can’t explain it. I just knew.”
This isn’t the first time I have had this kind of conversation with someone. I encouraged her to have faith in her premonitions, and the only way to do that is to write them down, and check them off as they manifest. This particular exercise is wonderful in that you get confirmation, not to mention lists like this make it apparent that is not an odd occurrence, but rather normal, for you.

There is the fashionable notion these days for individuals to be branded as ‘psychics’ or ’empaths’ if they are emotionally sensitive, or display a high level of compassion towards others. It is automatically assumed that people who are emotionally highly intelligent must also have an exceptional capacity for extra-sensory perception (ESP). Nothing could be further from the truth.
If anything, I believe this myth is only serving to confuse and mislead people, and may even cause further emotional damage, by imposing unreasonable expectations on some highly sensitive, or even emotionally vulnerable people.
I had many traumatic paranormal experiences in my childhood, and I was constantly overwhelmed by extra-sensory perceptions I did not understand. To find reliable information on the subject in those days was near impossible. The confusion and frustration I had to endure in my youth – often due to the ignorance of others – made me vow to research, learn and share as much as I could about psychic abilities. If I can spare just one gifted child unnecessary trauma, or inspire just one adult to come out of the ‘clair closet’, the bewilderment I had to endure would all be worth it. Thus, the reason for this article. Read the rest of this entry »
Being an empath definitely has its pros and cons. I use my empathic ability every day in every psychic reading I do. I connect with a person sensing their emotional state. Sometimes it’s happiness, sometimes it’s sadness, sometimes it’s love, and sometimes anger.
When I was younger it was hard not to carry my psychic work over into my own life. I would talk to a client who was broken hearted over losing a loved one through death, or a bad breakup, and after the reading those feelings would stay with me. It took some years to get to the point where I could shut those feelings off.
Sadness is the hardest for me to deal with. When I am reading for someone who is hurting emotionally, it touches my heart. I actually experience the same feelings of sadness they are feeling. It can be devastating for me, because those feelings are amplified for me, but with many years experience I have learned how to deal with them. Read the rest of this entry »
In his allegory Plato describes a dimly lit cave in which a group of prisoners are chained to a wall, completely immobilized. The cave represents the sensory human mind. When we believe that knowledge is what we see, taste, touch, smell and feel, we are trapped in a cave of misunderstanding. We are the prisoners.
The prisoners know no other reality other than the wall in front of them which has projections of shadow images. Its appearance resembles puppetry, as the shadows are created by people walking on a walkway carrying things on their head. These images are actually cast by the light of a fire behind them. The shadows are our perceptions that have been created from our limited experiences. These shadows are in some way representative of what we believe to be truth. What we see, we believe is real and true, however, what we are seeing is merely a shadow of truth. Read the rest of this entry »
Throughout time mankind has explored the ability to communicate with the gods, with nature, or with each other on a non-verbal level. It is extremely common for us to use the term intuitive. these days. It is often the explanation given by many an entrepreneur or successful decision-maker: “I just trusted my gut,” or “What I love about Mary is she is just so intuitive and makes the right decisions.”
The term psychic on the other hand, although nowadays often well known within a household, conjures up for so many outside the metaphysical community feelings of distrust, fake, absurd, not possible. Perhaps these attributes are attached because of our personal belief system that does not value or agree with the skill set. This also can impact our personal relationships if we know it is real and others judge us since we may then hide our abilities as being psychic and connected with the unseen realm or worse shut down and not continue developing them.

Every parent thinks their child is special and gifted. In fact, all children are born with some degree of psychic ability, and some keep it throughout their lives. How can we tell, and what is the best course of action, when we find a psychic child in our midst?
The main reason people lose psychic ability as they age is because of some grown-up or authority figure dismissing these very real gifts as their imagination or ‘make-believe.’ Children don’t know what is real or not, and when they are blessed with psychic gifts, they will believe… even if you don’t.
Though you may not understand, it’s important not to dismiss the child with statements like, “It’s only your imagination,” or “Stop, you’re scaring me!” The more a child hears negative statements about their extra-sensory or paranormal experiences, the more they will associate their psychic gifts with shame, anger, humiliation, or sadness.

So, you have that empath pal. Your ‘BFF.’ You know, the perfect girlfriend, the person who understands you through and through? Well, think again! That cute acquaintance, co-worker or online friend, may seep into your life and soon control everything – the material you write, the art you produce, the life you live, the people you see, the work you do, the people you date, the people you talk to. And I am talking people you never chose to meet.
A good number of aggressive stalkers are female, in my opinion. I have found that female stalkers are almost as prevalent in number as men. There is however much more awareness and activism when it comes to violence against women when committed by men. I also agree that more can be done to mitigate violence against women, but nothing has been done against perpetrators of violence by women against women. Why is that? Read the rest of this entry »
