Wherein we have the natural places in which we sequester our spirits – in sundry spaces such as temples or churches; within the bowers of our trees in nature, within our souls when there is no place to hide; in the suns open glare in the open deserts; or in the cold stare of the crowd – there you will still find the deep sequestered self of your soul. It is your own, not to be shared, never to be sold.
Even if one is not able to, for whatever reason, express one’s faith or reason within a world that is unreasonable, to not only a god, but perhaps one’s idea of it, whether it be of art, of love, or science, there within the sequestered self, there resides the natural spirit.
When you feel there is no place wherein you find a place to whisper your deepest prayer or desire, or your sweetest secrets or confessions to your God, where you feel there should be no man who can intervene, there should be a place where you can find a place of solace, where you can express your spiritual self and inclinations, deep within your mind.

When I first began to really walk the spiritual path, I remember doing so because it just felt so right. Every step I took towards ‘enlightenment’ seemed to bring more brightness into my life, and more blessings. I was really rolling! I was expecting this to always be the ride – all joy and light and love. It was wonderful.
What I hadn’t expected was the inevitable emergence of my shadow through this work. And it was not something I was comfortable with: admitting I had places of darkness within me, unloved aspects of myself, unowned pieces of my soul which had been abandoned and were in such pain.
Through a series of what seemed like unfortunate events, I was given opportunities to face my shadow side. Challenges in relationships with friends and loved ones arose. I couldn’t understand it at first and felt very alone and misunderstood. I was shifting the blame for this onto the people around me, instead of going inward. Read the rest of this entry »
Invariably, week after week, I receive questions from clients about attracting what they desire. This can range from a love interest to steady employment, but the solution is the same for just about any scenario. There are four keys to manifestation: identification, visualization, expect-action, and gratitude.
This is the most important step in the process of manifestation, and it’s often either overlooked or misunderstood by the general population. In order to attract what you want, you must understand what creates what you want.
For example, if you wish to be in a loving and committed relationship, then you must see yourself as the faithful and loving partner you wish to attract. Affirm, “I am the perfect lover.” Read the rest of this entry »
The 22 Major Arcana cards, starting with The Fool and leading all the way to The World, are all archetypes that represent hidden knowledge that many centuries ago were privy to those who worked closely with spirit.
When we consult a Tarot deck, the Major Arcana cards take us on a journey into another world, accessing ancient truths and divine law. In psychic Tarot readings the Major Arcana cards can describe attributes of people and their character traits, but most often represent the spiritual lessons we go through in life.

As an aficionado of all things metaphysical, from auras to a zebra jasper crystal, I have always found Chinese Astrology particularly fascinating. I’ve read any and everything I could lay my hands on and ultimately, I believe, I have come up with my own fundamental basic understanding of it.
I’m a simple woman and as a writer I have found the simple approach is best. Chinese Astrology is based on 12 different animals, and the traits of each species defines the characteristics of each Chinese Zodiac year. If you understand the animal, then you understand the Chinese astrological sign associated with it. You might say it is an easy key to understanding what may initially seem complicated.
According to Chinese Astrology we are entering the Year of the Dog this month. Associated with the element of Earth and the season of Autumn, the closest Western Astrology signs are Scorpio and Libra. Read the rest of this entry »
Relationships flourish when they are put in the proper climate for growth. When it comes to intimate and romantic relationships it is integral for our own personal growth to recognize what we want and expect within the situation. Boundaries are a powerful way to cultivate the experiences that are more meaningful in our relationships.
Often when I am reading for a person that is having consistent challenges, Spirit will identify similar challenges within the situation. This is not universal, because challenges can stem from many sources. However, I would like to identify some consistent messages that do come up related to relationships.
One issue that comes up quite often is a focus on fantasy rather than reality. This is not to say that fantasy is bad, but when an individual expends a lot of their time and energy fantasizing about how a situation will evolve, they can potentially fall in love with the fantasy instead of the reality.

No matter what your current circumstance is, no matter what your current situation may be, whether you are feeling like you do not have enough or are not enough… you do not need to be in a state of perfection to attract perfection to you. You do not need to be in a state of prosperity to attract prosperity to you. It is important for you to understand and realize this.
The thoughts in your mind create your reality. What you think about you bring about. Be on high alert of the thoughts that run through your mind.
The ego has a tendency to keep you stuck in the past, but you are more than your ego. You are a creation of God, of heaven above, you are all powerful ever-expansive. You are a creator of your life. You came here in this incarnation to create. To create love. To create joy. To create harmony.
So, be aware of the thoughts that might be running in your subconscious mind – that program in the background that you might be completely unaware of. Read the rest of this entry »
Spiritual ceremonies, where humans gather together in a circle, are especially potent. An energetic hoop gathers over the circle to assist in the endeavor for the gathering, whether it be for the purpose of celebrating a new birth, honoring a solstice, or to express anything of importance to humanity, as individuals, or as a group.
Altars are also powerful. They are a gathering place for spirits to provide protection and shielding, to aid in a calling or, perhaps, to provide a sacred place for the energy of one who has crossed to another dimension to gather and connect. Or, we might choose to build an altar dedicated to providing an anchor for our business when we are away, the same as when we are present. Read the rest of this entry »
