Easy Ways To Master The Art Of Meditation

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comMeditation is recommended for everyone. Not only does it offer incredible benefits for clarity of mind and overall well-being, it’s also a powerful spiritual tool to help us navigate our lives. But, getting started with a meditation practice can be hard!

I often hear people say they can’t meditate, or they tried meditating, but they became too distracted. “I can’t seem to clear my mind,” they might say. Many beginners struggle with this idea that in order to ‘properly’ meditate, one must sit motionless, eyes closed, and clear your mind of all thoughts. Failure to do so means that you have ‘failed’ to meditate.

The truth is, meditation is called a practice, because it really does take practice. Actually clearing your mind is not an easy task. I suggest people begin a meditation routine in one of two ways: guided meditation, or nature meditation.

Dolphin – The Magical Marine Mammal

click photo for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comAt one time in the distant past all of us came from the sea. Our bodies are still about 70% percent water and we have a natural connection with it. Is it any wonder then that humans and dolphins, one of the most intelligent and intuitive animal species, have such an ancient and powerful connection?

In myths from around the world, there are stories of dolphins assisting, healing, and guiding humans at sea. With their kind eye, perpetually ‘smiling’ face and use of language, they are in many ways like us. Scientists observe that dolphins are among the few animal species who have their own ‘dialects’ depending on their location. Some evidence even suggests that dolphins may be telepathic!

Animal Rescue As A Spiritual Calling

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comA friend recently asked me if have considered the possibility that all the animal rescue work I have been doing in recent years might be the symptom of a deep desire to heal some wounded part of myself? She also said I may be suffering from what her therapist refers to as a ‘savior complex.’ And this might stem from fear of rejection, insecurities and any other negative experiences from my childhood. I did not get defensive, but said I would ponder her remark. Actually, I am pondering what she said as I type this blog.

As much as my husband and I love all animals, it was never our intention to get as involved as we have now with our bounty of ‘rescued animals.’ In hindsight, we ended up taking in some very sick, injured, starving, and abandoned fur babies, because the small local rescue centre was bursting at the seams. I guess we found ourselves unable to bury our heads in the sand.

All Is Well Where There Is Gratitude

click here for a free reading at PsychicAccess.comI was sitting at camp this morning, thinking of all the things I had on my schedule for the day and the upcoming week. I had somehow overbooked myself, yet again. Not even four sips into my coffee… and I already felt some stress rise up in my chest.

At that moment I heard a little ‘purr-meow,’ as my cat Oscar looked at me quizzically. He always helps me to put life into perspective. We all need that honest friend who will tell us like it is, and get us refocused on what really matters. Oscar was sitting on his perch by the window. As he shifted his gaze to me, I could hear him say, “Why so stressed mama? We’re at camp and it’s a beautiful day out. All is well.”

The Magic Of Otter

click here for a FREE reading at PsychicAccess.comOtter loves to play and brings as spirit animal with it the element of play. Many times Otter will make an appearance when we are taking life too seriously. We need to remember our inner child. Otter brings joy and laughter. Often medicine is needed when we need to find our sense of humor. Otter also teaches us to cozy up to new things. We can’t welcome new things into our lives when we are clutching on to the past.

Otter further brings spiritual awareness and devotion. It brings with it awareness of subconscious emotions and psychic abilities. Otter appearing in our lives is a wake-up call to be more aware of emotions in ourselves and others. Otters remind us not to be stuck in worry. Dwell instead on what is positive in life.

Shamanic Healing For Chronic Illness

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comWhen treating chronic illnesses, such as depression or pain, we too often look only at the symptoms, and not the root cause. The fact is, most if not all of these conditions have at their foundation some form of loss: the loss of sensation, loss of control, or the fear of loss. For this reason shamanic medicine can be quite effective as a form of treatment.

Shamanism, the connection between the physical world and the spirit realms, is all about connections. As we look closer at chronic illness, we find that much of it is caused by a lack of connection: to our authentic selves, to our spirit guides, to nature, and to our intuition. This is whey shamanic healing can be of great value.

For thousands of years, before the emergence of modern medical practices, shamans were the healers and diviners of the community. Fortunately, their practice is as strong today as it was then.

A trained shaman is able to determine which type of healing we may need: soul loss or retrieval (often through past-life work), spiritual retrieval (a power animal, angel, or other spirit guide), or reconnection to the earth and spiritual realms. There are shamans with different specialties, just as we have physicians with different areas of practice. Continue reading

The Cat Whisperer

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comI recently had to take my cat, Max, to the vet. He hadn’t been feeling well and I woke up one morning sensing I needed to call the vet. I am glad I did, as he had an acute urinary tract infection. Male cats are more prone to getting these type of infections.

His medical emergency took me back to a time when I first felt the need to adopt cats. My best friend, who was an up-and-coming veterinarian at the time, encouraged me to adopt kitties. I felt at the time I couldn’t even have just one or two, because I didn’t want the responsibility, but as the years passed, I wound up adopting six in total!

What was very special to me about adopting these fur babies, was that my vet friend passed away in 2007. Her death impacted me to the point where I became despondent, until I adopted my first baby in 2009 in her memory. The rest is history. I would often joke with my ex that it was my dearly departed friend’s fault for us having so many cats.

It seemed like we adopted one after the other in a short period of only two years. Max was the last kitty we adopted. I didn’t want him at first, thinking we already had too many as it was. My ex had asked me three times in one week if I wanted Max, as he knew the owners and they were going to return him to the shelter. His previous owners didn’t want another cat, since their first cat ran away and returned to their home one night.
