Charity does begin at home. Whether you think of charity as alms for the impoverished, or kindness to strangers, or perhaps non-judgment in times of questionable behavior by others, it is still imperative to look within first. Before you can be truly charitable to others, it is important to be kind to yourself first. Ultimately, you cannot give to others freely and easily that which you do not give to yourself.
You are a loving and giving being. However, sometimes you are your own worst critic and have nothing but fault to find when you come up short regarding lofty expectations of yourself.
Sometimes you have set this bar so high that you are incapable of reaching the goals within your estimated timeline. Sometimes life intervenes in your best laid plans and deadlines are missed. Sometimes you self-sabotage from fear of success, or failure. Each of these instances can cause undue stress, which is not only harmful to you, but also to the people in your circle.

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.

I know my angels stopped me from going to work that day for a reason. I knew I had work to do that day that was important enough to keep me safe from injury, or worse.
I will never forget the day of that highway accident. It was September 3, 1999 and I had asked for that day off work, which is something I never did. I was an Office Manager at a tool shop, and worked under a very arrogant accountant whom, I’m sure, had control issues when it came to his staff.
He didn’t feel I should have the day off, as it was already a long weekend for us in Canada. The Labor Day holiday would have afforded me a four day weekend, instead of a three day weekend. I had been working there for several years, however he still said no. He had threatened that I would lose my job if I took that day off, as he didn’t approve it and had no intention of changing his mind. Read the rest of this entry »
Yes, we all have angels in our lives, several in fact. Our main angel, or guardian angel, accompanies us from birth until death. And no, your crossed-over relative is not your guardian angel. A guardian angel goes through many lifetimes with you and knows all your past secrets and all your future secrets, even before you yourself are aware.
I’m sure all of our guardian angels shake their heads many times at each of us, with our irresponsible use of free will, and some of the unfortunate choices we make in our lives. I can picture my guardian angel at different points in my life, just throwing up her hands and saying, “Here she goes again – another bad life choice!” However I know she never leaves my side, which is my comfort in this lifetime.

How does one differentiate between your own thoughts and psychic information that arrives telepathically, or from Spirit?
This question put me in mind of a story of the centipede, which walked every day of his life effortlessly despite his many legs. One day, a ladybug stopped the centipede, and commented on how much she and the community admired the agility and speed with which the centipede walked.
The ladybug went further to ask: “How do you know which leg to move first?” The centipede stopped a moment, to contemplate the question, and answered that he hadn’t really thought about it before. But then, when he wanted to continue on his way, the centipede suddenly found he was paralyzed. It seems that when he stopped to think about which leg to move first, he couldn’t move at all!

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 »
When asked what the best message is that I have ever received from my spirit guides, I had to stop and think, because I am always receiving amazing spiritual messages that make me see things from a completely different perspective.
However, I do feel the most powerful guidance I ever received was on the subject of the fruit of the spirit. Spirit guides want their loved ones to know that in order to live happy, healthy lives we must definitely live with these fruit of the spirit.
The “Fruit of the Holy Spirit” is a biblical concept for the nine attributes of a Christian life, as described by Paul the Apostle in his letter to the Galatians. The fruit of the Spirit are: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Read the rest of this entry »
