I always tell my clients to start the day by choosing joy. When we are in the vibration of joy or love we begin higher on the vibrational scale, and when we hold one energy we cannot hold another. So, when we are in the vibration of joy, we can’t be in fear, dreading or doubt. The reverse is true. When we are in fear, we don’t feel love or joy.
I recommend a very sweet exercise that produces great results when we practice it, not only with words, but also by adding feeling and a sense of allowing. As with any exercise I use myself, or offer to my clients, I like to make it playful. So let’s play!
In the evening before you go to bed, when you have your PJs on, or first thing in the morning, make yourself comfortable and think of something that raises your vibrational state to one of joy. Put aside any doubts or resistance. Then in your journal, or on a pretty paper, and with your favorite pen, you can write down how you want your day to progress while holding this high vibe.

The fear of missing out, or FOMO, can cause a constant obsession with anything, and everything – whether it’s work, the news, or social media. And it can burn us out – physically, mentally and emotionally. It can actually compromise our adrenals, stress us out, scatter us mentally, and emotionally cause sadness, or even depression. We were not designed to live this way.
If we don’t unplug, take timeouts during our day, have an entire day of restoring ourselves, or actually take a vacation to unplug, we lose perspective of the great mystery that is life. We also sacrifice our freedom.
The most important spiritual benefit of taking time out is that our intuition becomes sharper. We don’t miss out on the messages our Guides, Angels, our Loved Ones on the other side, and the Divine may have for us. Yes, we have asked for their help, but for them it’s like t getting a busy signal on a phone line. They can’t get their message through to us. Read the rest of this entry »
There are seven spiritual paths, or the Seven Rays, that each one of us travels on. This goes on throughout our various incarnations, and spirit life, again and again, until we finally reach back to our Creator Source, or God.
We ultimately come full circle, after we start out as divine sparks of pure spirit energy. We then become enclosed in flesh bodies, experiencing all of the hardships of physical life, until the death of these bodies and returning to spirit once again. We reincarnate again, and again, to purify our spirits, so we could be next to our God Source, and achieve total eternal Bliss.
During these incarnations we work our way through the Seven Rays. I learned of the concept of the Seven Rays by studying the books of Alice Bailey, Elizabeth Clare Prophet, The Ascended Masters teachings, and The Aquarian Foundation. Read the rest of this entry »
I have been contemplating how often a friend’s photo on social media, a call from a customer, an advertisement, the written word, or an overheard phrase has triggered a really significant memory for me. This was the case again last night, when the word “bliss” featured in a commercial for chocolate on my TV screen. For some reason this prompted a memory from many years ago.
I was working temporarily in a retirement home as a caregiver. Although I didn’t have long-term plans to remain in that job, I loved working with the old people, and used to give them reflexology treatments and healing massages in my free time. The short treatments gave them great relief, and they began asking if I would come back and help them again.
This caused a lot of animosity with the rest of the staff, who were already unfriendly towards me. They made it clear that I was not ‘one of them’. I was the outsider, and not from ‘their village.’ The home’s matron asked me to stop doing any healing or therapeutic work with the residents, because it was not in my job description.

Back in the Fall I posted a blog, titled Autumn Wishes, where I mentioned planting bulb, while wishing for a beautiful flower and praying for the fulfillment of a desire. At that time in October, it was my invitation for us to pause and notice the inexorable pull toward Winter Solstice. The days were growing incrementally shorter, ultimately culminating in the darkest day of the year.
But here we are now, and it is Spring again. Yes, it is the beautiful season of new beginnings, renewal and rebirth! Fresh buds are blooming, hibernating animals have been awakening and the earth seems to be coming to life again. Farmers and gardeners are now planting their future harvest, as temperatures slowly rise. 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 »
I truly enjoy my alone time. I have enjoyed it since childhood. I was often teased by a great-aunt, who lived with us while I was growing up, about the famous silent film actress Greta Garbo who reputedly said, “I want to be alone…” Looking back, I believe my aunt was correct – this has become my personal mantra!
I was mostly a loner as a child. I felt no one understood me and my heightened sensitivities, so I learned to enjoy my own company. When I was in the presence of others, it was difficult to acclimate myself into their company. As I have grown older and discovered more about myself, I do truly love my solitude.
Now, mind you, I love being around people. But there are also times, as I have learned being the water sign of Pisces, that I need to be wrung out. I feel like a sponge absorbing other people’s energy. I do use the psychic protection of energetic shielding, but I still absorb other’s energies when I do psychic readings and energy work.

It is so true to say that we live in a very challenging world. As sobering a fact this may be, spirit teaches us that there is much that can be done to rise above any challenge, to become empowered in the process, and thus influence a better future for ourselves. The secret to doing this is to self-nurture.
Why should we self-nurture, and more importantly, how does one do it right? Self-nurturing can so often, wrongly, be confused with self-indulgence, which is something different altogether. Self-nurturing can be likened to looking after yourself both spiritually and physically, and by doing both you should find: Read the rest of this entry »
