The energy that is moving through now is about strength, courage and conviction. Standing in your power never felt so good. There is no more guilt, no more ‘should haves.’ Only receiving of the inspiration you’ve asked for, and Divine execution.
Love is your middle name, or your first, if you are truly ready to rise up and glow. For choosing to glow means action and assertion. No more playing small. The world needs your gifts and they need them now, or yesterday actually. There is an urgency to our message today, as we cannot say it strongly and loudly enough. The time is now.

In today’s so-called enlightened world, most people tend to concentrate on the ‘light’ so much that they tend to neglect their darker or ‘shadow side as a result. Truly, this is a pity as we can learn so much from it! Carl Jung said, “One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”
So just what is our Shadow? Interestingly, this is the side of us that we tend to hide from other people. Simply put, it is the home for our guilt, fears, emotional traumas, but yet at the same time, also houses our beauty and hidden abilities!
In fact, any side of ourselves that we tend to keep secret from other people forms our shadow side. Generally speaking, anything that we may class as being unacceptable by society, or our social circle, we tend to store away at the back of our mind. Read the rest of this entry »
Psychics often have songs come to mind during readings, or we find they are playing on the car radio after we were just thinking of that special family member or friend. We then take that as a sign that they are watching over us and that they had just stepped in from the Spirit side of life to make their presence know. These songs can be the triggers for memories that we once treasured, or continue to treasure, or to remind you how precious and loved you are. Read the rest of this entry »
The students that committed suicide at the colleges where I taught were always the brightest stars, known for being happy, and helpful to others. People were always shocked when they chose suicide.
America worships ‘happy’ and ‘positive attitude.’ What is our aversion to the so-called ‘negative’? Why are we rejected for being a ‘downer’?
If a person is truly happy and content from the inside out, someone else’s upset mood, depression or anxiety will not affect you! People react badly to ‘negativity’ because it stirs up their own unresolved issues. It makes them feel their unresolved issues. Read the rest of this entry »
From the darkest places comes the brightest of light…” When I first read this statement on a piece of community art, on display at a Yoga festival, I was astounded. I stood still, with my Yoga mat strung over my shoulder, my water bottle in hand, and a plethora of memories racing through my mind.
That moment instantly brought back my traumatic, abusive childhood, and destructive youth. I had come from some very dark places, until I ended up morbidly obese, depressed and suicidal at 30 years of age. I had to change my life and slowly I began to choose what I sensed was good for me.

Living among the muggles* I have spent decades hiding my secret life as a spiritual being. I remember as a child being terrified thinking my mother (a therapist) might put me in a funny farm. I even made my big brother promise he would not let that happen! Poor guy. He was worried for me too…
I was always so strange. I was a full-blown flower child, a starseed who thought the world existed for us to share, and that we are meant to support each other. And for decades I was able to live in and create that around me. I look back now and wonder how I managed not to get robbed, raped, or killed? I wandered through most of my life trusting absolutely everyone. Read the rest of this entry »
Only you know when it’s time to come out of the closet. Only you know when it’s time to live the life you have always wanted, or were called to live. Is your life like a hamster on a wheel, same old, same old? If you do the same old thing the same old way, you will always get the same old result. Step off the wheel and try something new in your life.
Get rid of the shoulds and should nots. You will always hear that little voice inside your head saying, “I can’t do that, I’m not smart enough… I’m not good enough… I don’t deserve that..” On and on, downing and judging yourself. Only you know when it’s time to clean house, get rid of the useless mental chatter and feel good about yourself. Read the rest of this entry »
A new concept that seems to be going around a lot lately in the spiritual community is “to be your authentic self.” But what does this really mean? How do you know what your authentic self is? Heck, you may say “I’m still trying to find out what my life purpose is, never mind who I truly am!”
Well, as a result of our education, our upbringing, our family dynamics, our job, and such, when we are asked the question “who are you,” we resort to answers such as: a mom, a dad, engineer, doctor, janitor. We tend to express our identity by what work we do, what credentials we have, and what society or our community has told us to be. We are bombarded by social, political, environmental and family expectations that can overwhelm us in modern life. Read the rest of this entry »
