A friend of a friend always felt a calling to do animal rescue work, and this calling beckoned her to a Swiss-based rescue group called City Dogs in Romania. She saw a picture of a dog named Lou on their website, fell in love with him and arranged for him to be transported from Romania to Switzerland.
There was something special about Lou, and people who have had that special soul connection with a pet will understand this.
When Lou arrived the connection between them was immediate and all seemed fine with him. However, this is what happened after Lou arrived, in my friend’s own words: Read the rest of this entry »
Like the cat, dogs were companions to the ancients. In Egypt he was represented by the god Anubis and resembled today’s modern greyhound. In Greece, he was sacred to the goddess Artemis, who ruled the woods and the hunt. A massive three-headed monster dog, Cerberus, guarded the Greek underworld and was later captured by the hero Heracles in one of his twelve labors. The brightest star in the night sky, Sirius, is called “The Dog Star” and is a representation of the dark goddess Hekate. Read the rest of this entry »
A brief description of the number 9 according to numerology is that it refers to endings, vision, tolerance, transformation, spiritual consciousness, cosmic teachings, global awareness and perfection. There are thousands, if not millions of instances where the number 9 is encoded in our lives, on our Earth, in our Universe. Below are some amazing instances how the Earth resonates to the number 9.
Take the woman who thinks her husband is cheating on her. When I take a call like that my job is to not only answer the question to the best of my ability, but to reassure her that it’s not necessarily something she did, but more likely a flaw in his character. It then, should she desire it, becomes my job to point out her options and how she can make the right decision and create a better life for herself. It happened for a reason. I counseled a young woman a while back. Her question was about was going on with her daughter. The answer was easy for me to give her, but what I told her next had more of an impact.

We all came to this planet with our own unique gifts. Just like no one on the planet has the same fingerprint as you, they also do not have the same talent, voice or look. Sure, some may come close, but the entirety of a person, their personality and so on, is completely different from one to the other.
I feel saddened when I see young people copying one another. Why they do this is uncertain to me, however I’m sure they want to fit in or be accepted, and they fear being rejected by their peers. There are also adults who do this. I asked one girl who was mimicking her friend recently, why would you want to be a photo copy of someone else? You’re beautiful and you have a lovely voice, and you are a very talented artist. She looked at me and said: “Oh my goodness, you’re so right!” I told her that each person came to this planet to share their light in their own unique way, no matter what your personal qualities and talents may be.

During times of upheaval, sadness, psychic, or sensory overload the one thing that always brings me back to compassion and empathy is the connection between all living things.
I’m one of those who weeps at an Internet picture of a cat abandoned by society, just as much as I do for human victims of unspeakable things. None of us are any different when it comes right down to the basics. It’s what drove me to go through massage therapy school over ten years ago. I’ll never forget how everyone turned when, as one of the massage students I was asked, “what do you do now and why are you here?” I said, “I’m a professional psychic and astrologer and I want to see what lays beneath the surface of the skin.” People didn’t know where to look. Either that, or they rushed to come and say hello to me during the break. Read the rest of this entry »
I recently asked a psychic friend of mine to do some healing work for me outside the boundaries of our usual readings. Instead of paying him, he suggested that I donate to animal welfare foundations of my choice.
I immediately picked up on this, as it’s a cause near to my own heart. I researched some sites and made donations. As a result, I felt unexpected joy and elevated mood! Sure, I expected to feel good, but was unprepared for the profound positive effect it had on me. It was a way of expressing gratitude for the abundance in my life and sharing this where needed.
I’m not a wealthy person measured in (US) dollars. But I, and many of us, have the basic resources for taking care of ourselves and to help out with the needs of others. Even if you are unemployed, consider volunteer work to help those less fortunate. It’s more constructive than sitting at home with nothing to do. In times of trouble, doubt, fear and worry, giving to others is a great way to boost your confidence and forget about personal “stuff” for awhile. Read the rest of this entry »
Apart from obvious perceptions that differ from country to country, studies have indicated that across the planet, all facial expressions and responses to emotional triggers are identical. This means that across language barriers, for the most part, the perception of emotional states is approximately the same.
There are six fundamental emotional states: happiness, sadness, anger, fear, disgust, and surprise. This theory was posited by Charles Darwin, and even if obvious to us now, it was probably a highly contentious idea at the time.
This would have been contentious during colonial times – it being a time of meeting of discoveries of new cultures due to inventions and improvements in the machine and industrial world. The emerging powers had the steam engine patented and sold only to their allies, and with this knowledge, our world opened up to new cultures and societies. With steam we could now power ourselves across the oceans. Read the rest of this entry »
