The Path To Self-Love

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comIn the words of Esther Perel, when did we learn to live on crumbs? Who taught us not to need much and where did we learn to refrain from wanting, asking, needing? Wise words! I see it so often, in myself and in so many others. We dim our own lights so that others feel better about themselves. We sell ourselves short through self-criticism. We settle for mere crumbs in relationships. It is a common tendency especially among healers and those who are more empathic. The question is why do we do this and how can we alter the pattern?

Why do we do this? At the core of the issue is self-love – simply not feeling good enough about ourselves or worthy enough, because on some deep level our self-worth and self-love is damaged or wounded. No one escapes these issues as a result of being in this physical body and feeling like we are separated from our ultimate Source. We therefore are constantly searching for ways to prove our worth, to feel acceptance and love from others to validate ourselves.

When Spiritual Leaders Let Us Down

click here for a free reading at PsychicAccess.comIt is a hard lesson for some of us to learn that people are just people. We are all capable of good and evil. The difference is the choices that are made on how to handle our emotions and feelings.

When you put faith and trust in an individual and are let down, you start to second guess your decisions and lose some faith in yourself to make wise decisions. It can leave a big hole in your heart and create trust issues in the future.

It seems impossible for a person who has done remarkable good deeds to also choose to do bad things. We must realize that all people have temptations in life. Some people can avoid the albatross on their back, while others simply cannot. It takes a very strong person to walk their talk.

The same applies to ‘highly spiritual’ people, because some healers, gurus and spiritual leaders certainly have had their own cross to bear.

A Story Of Healing

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAcccess.comI asked my mentor how I would get energy healing work. Her answer to me was, “You don’t have to do a thing, they will come to you.” She was really right about this! Healing is a part of my life purpose and the right people seem to find me at the right time.

One of my most memorable healing experiences involved a young girl who only 8 or 9 years old at the time. I was living in a pretty large apartment building at the time, in a not-too-nice part of the city. We lived on the same floor.

Ventilation was not so great in this complex and only a few people had air conditioning, so everyone would leave their doors open in the summer, for a draft of fresh air to come into the stuffy apartments.

Many of the children would play with each other in the hallways. It was always noisy, but in a way it was better than having them play out on the streets without adult supervision. When they did go outside, a mom was always with them, to bring them over to the park that was a few blocks away. Then there are some good parents and some not so good parents, as usually the case is.

When True Beauty Shines Through

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comI was speaking recently with a friend who prefers to hide from the world. In his words, “I want people to remember me the way I used to look, instead of how I look now.” I couldn’t help but lower my head in that moment. I adore this man in every way. His looks mean nothing to me, for I have seen his heart. To me he is extremely handsome. I wish he felt the same way about himself.

I have thought the same about myself, many times over the years, but not so much anymore. I take pride in my appearance, but I have also come to understand that my looks are not the ‘sum of my parts.’

We live in a very superficial world, where we are made to believe by almost every media and marketing message out there, that as long as you are beautiful or handsome, the world is your oyster. There also doesn’t seem to be any getting away from it. I recall in my own youth flipping through magazines to look at the ‘beautiful people,’ and thinking to myself, their lives must be perfect. Of course, today I know that nothing could be further from the truth.

A New Year, A New Branch

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comNew Year’s day is probably the closest we have to a global holiday. Think of all the people all over the world, in the span of 24 hours, were focusing on some of the same intentions just a few days ago. That’s powerful energy.

On my social media I shared these words, “Hello World! May our wishes be trued and cause no harm.” Adding the “cause no harm,” is a habit from my days practicing Wicca in the mid-nineties. My introduction to Wicca came from a crone from Salem, who interviewed me for my first job as a professional psychic. Her wisdom, and the beauty and wisdom from Wicca, continues to enrich my intention. Remembering to add “cause no harm,” fortifies my belief that I can, indeed, have something that doesn’t take away anything from someone or something else that causes them harm.

Wait. How can I write on paper, while not taking the life of the tree from which it came? I don’t know. After learning that grass was alive, my mother had to drag me across the lawn every day, because that meant I wouldn’t have to walk on it. I still wince when walking on grass, especially when I think about it being alive. Now that I think about it, this happens more often than I realized before!

Be Gentle With Yourself This January

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comJanuary can be a challenging month for some people. As the new year rolls in, many people are focused on their ‘New Year’s resolutions’ and on how they want to change their lives for the better in the coming year. As we all know, in a few weeks time most of these resolutions will be forgotten, and all that will remain is subtle feeling of disappointment.

Add to this our reflections on the past year, our hopes and expectations for the coming year, and a lingering malaise from the energetic overload of the previous month of holidays… and all of this can add up to a sense of heaviness about our life.

While recognizing that there is room for improvement, and taking action where we can make those improvements, is always a good thing, it’s important to also remember to do this with love and compassion for ourselves. Change can be challenging, even when we are at our best!

So, with all this in mind, how can we move into this new year with both self-love and self-awareness?

Treat Yourself During The Holidays

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comThe holiday season is a time when many of us are focused on family and friends. I have always found that this time of year brings joy, but also a little sadness. Feelings of grief tend to peak around the holidays, as we notice empty chairs at large family gatherings, or wrap gifts and find old tags with a loved one’s name on it. It cannot be avoided, but feeling grief or loss of a  loved one around the holidays is also a reminder of the depth of our love for that person.

The stress of the holidays can be quite overwhelming. We are worried about ‘having enough,’ or purchasing the ‘right gift.’ Did we forget something, or someone? At times we tend to go overboard and then regret it later. If you’re like me, you’ll set a budget limit per family member, and then find you’ve far surpassed it with one, and then struggle to make up the difference for the others!

For example, my daughter is probably the easiest person in the world to buy for, and I always go overboard with her gifts. Then I have to scramble to find things for my son to equal the value and number of gifts.
