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 Unless we question some of these outdated beliefs or information, we will stay stuck in limited thinking – always inside the box.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.
In the case of soul retrieval we are finding an aspect of self and returning it back. Soul rescue refers to being of service to a spirit or soul that is temporarily lost, or needs guidance to continue its journey in non-ordinary reality, in the realm of Spirit, having left the physical plane.
In the shamanic community there is a technique known as soul retrieval which represents the fragmented self. The fragmented self is a part of us that becomes temporarily ‘disconnected’ from our etheric soul, from the context of associative memories of a time in our life. Read the rest of this entry »
I remember when first I came into contact with Apache Tears, a kind of Obsidian, when I was just a child. I loved it! Its translucent quality was captivating. At the time I did not know the metaphysical properties of this stone; all I knew was that it had a dream-like quality to it.
Obsidian is molten lava that has cooled very quickly. It is a type of volcanic glass and it is found worldwide. The ancient Aztecs made flat mirrors from Obsidian for use in divination. Obsidian may open a person to the gift of prophecy. Legend has it that Dr. Dee, a great mage and alchemist, hired by Queen Elizabeth I, may have used an Obsidian mirror in lessons of scrying.

Our wise ancestors worshipped the stars in the heavens above and considered them to be a direct reflection of the earth below. As you may know, the movement of the planets in our solar system absolutely mirrors everything that is occurring on Earth at any point in time.
Have you heard of the deities known as Nut and Geb? In Egyptian mythology Nut and Geb are twins. Nut is the sky goddess and Geb is the Earth god. In the imagery found in ancient art, Nut is typically shown to be arching over, or mirroring Geb, who lies below. As above, so below…
The Egyptians were exceptionally precise astronomers. The three pyramids at Giza mirror perfectly the three stars in Orion’s belt above. They are Alnitak, Alnilam, and Mintaka. These three stars form the most striking and isolated line in the heavens. Read the rest of this entry »
Spiritual mediums often work with spirit guides. Some work with only one guide, while others have several guides assisting them. I have many guides around me. They help move my psychic readings quickly and help get the answers and information people need.
The first of my spirit guides I knew about were Ishet, Ohkona, Nastar and Chadly. Ishet is a female guide of the Egyptian dream temples. She gives me balance, perspective, and understanding of the human mind. Okona is a male native American, who guides and guards me on my path. He gives me strength and perseverance. Nastar is my runner, and helps set up situations ahead of me, such as perhaps guiding a client to me, or even a simple task, like having a parking space available near the front door of a destination. And then there is Chadly, who is a nature guide. He comes through as an old, rough frontiersman, buckskins and all, he brings me humility and greater awareness in connecting me with all things natural. Read the rest of this entry »
Ancestor worship is a wide-spread belief system, in both primitive and sophisticated cultures. Ancestral healing unfortunately gets very little attention these days, even though some of our patterns and energy imbalances may well stem from our genetic pool.
My first exposure to the concept of communicating with our Ancestors occurred many years ago, during initiation into the Southern African culture of divining and healing. During my training to become a Sangoma*, in a remote area in Southern Africa, time was always put aside for offering prayers to, and for consulting with the Ancestors. My mentor taught me how the Ancestor energies affected their still living relatives, and how, in most African cultures, they are seen as being our link to the spirit world.

One of the quaintest concepts, that seemed to captivate imaginations around the turn of the 18th century, were the elements and their embodiments in the form of Elemental Spirits. These beings were the personification of the Classical elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire.
In the Middle Ages, great attention was given to these four elements in terms of diagnosis, such as the Choleric being linked to the Earth, which would be thus be linked to Taurus. The Phlegmatic was linked to the water element, or Pisces, which often would diagnose lung disorders, thus the word origin for phlegm. Read the rest of this entry »
I believe cats, like many animals, have special gifts. They are mystical creatures that share a special world. Unlike other animals, I think somehow they are aware they have these gifts and share special secrets with each other, within a mystical and magical life.
Animals send us messages of healing and caring if we are intuitive and open to receiving them. Cats can be instrumental in helping us find peace when we are troubled or upset.
When I am doing a psychic reading, one of my cats, Paddy, always insists on being near me. On calls, when the caller is particularly troubled, Paddy begins to meow and almost takes over the reading. On one occasion I had to gently guide him out of the room. It is almost like he is trying to use his psychic and intuitive abilities, and I am merely his channel. I feel grounded when he is around me; it is like he knows the person calling needs guidance and support. Read the rest of this entry »
