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 »
When I read for a client, I am not just reading their energy, but I am also reading the energy of their loved ones, co-workers, friends, their home environment, as well as their work environment and community. During a psychic reading in can become evident, for example, that the home environment is toxic, stagnant, or energetically polluted, which has a negative effect on my client.
This pollution is not always metaphysical in origin. Sometimes it is caused by a physical contaminant. For example, it can be a mildew issue, which will make me smell mold and sense moisture, like a smothering humid feeling, or see black mildew spots on a psychic level. The toxicity can also be due to a leak of actual chemicals, bugs or something else that has become a threat to the client’s health. Read the rest of this entry »

You may still feel a little battered and worn-torn as the shadows of the recent retrograde has been slowing and pull away, and you stand fully planted on the ground in your power. Read the rest of this entry »
You get to choose which colors you like to have on the palette of your life – not what anyone else thinks you should have. It’s okay to paint exactly as you wish, as all great artist do. Color can empower you, color can uplift you, color can heal.
Embrace all your favorite colors, even the darker shades, including black. A lot of people fear the color black, but without the darkness of the shadows we cannot truly appreciate the light. I personally like the color black. It makes me feel good about myself. A few years ago I went to court for my divorce hearing. I had no lawyer; I chose to represent myself. I was wearing a black dress suit, with large, black leather purse. The judge took me seriously and granted all that I negotiated for. I give credit to my choice of wearing the color black.

The area where I live is famous for being haunted. In fact, our “Asylum 49” was featured on popular paranormal television shows like Ghost Hunting, Paranormal Investigation and Ghost Adventures. This notorious old place is thought to be one of the greatest Halloween venues to visit on this side of the country.
Asylum 49’s haunted structure takes up about half of the old hospital. The other half of the hospital is the only nursing and hospice home in the county. Asylum 49 is only open to the public from September 1st to October 31st, but in that short time they raise a lot of money. After it was featured on Paranormal Investigation, tourists and paranormal investigation teams started visiting from all over the world. Asylum 49 is also available for private tours in the off-season. 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.

The recent gruesome death of Ingrid Lyne in Seattle has attracted much attention from single women and generated renewed awareness of the potential risks of online dating. However, I still think online dating is one of the best ways to meet someone special, especially for those people whose circumstances do not allow them to interact with other single people on a daily basis.
According to the Pew Research Center around 5% of Americans who are in a marriage or committed relationship say they met their significant other online. A study by the National Academy of Sciences found that more than one third of marriages in the USA begin with online dating, and those couples seem to be slightly happier than couples who meet through other means. Match.com reports that only 9% of women and 2% of men say they have found a relationship at a club or bar. The universe is clearly using the Internet to bring people together!

Today’s Full Moon in May is most commonly known as the Flower Moon, Planting Moon, or Milk Moon. But in some cultures it is also know as the Hare Moon, and the Buddha Moon.
The Micmac American Indian Tribe tells a legend from the time before the first people, when Rabbit and his grandmother lived in a lodge built deep in the heart of the Micmac forest. During the winter, Rabbit set traps and snares, so he could provide food for his grandmother and himself. He caught many small animals and birds for many years.
One day he discovered that someone was stealing from his traps. Rabbit and his grandmother soon went hungry. Rabbit tried waking up earlier and earlier, but although he visited his traps early each morning, someone always got to his traps and snares before him. They were always empty.
