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.

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 »
What is it like to be born a psychic? The easy thing to say, that most will indeed say, is that it is both a gift and a curse. But that is such a broad statement. Personally, I have always loved being psychic.
I remember being three years old, when I knew that I saw and heard things which were not there. I would look at people and I would know things. I would know how they felt, in all senses of the word, and I would see colors around them, which told me how they were feeling physically.
I did not know what this was at the time. I just knew that when I saw a person with a certain color around them it meant they were feeling a certain way. I would try my best to avoid being around people that made me feel what they were feeling. But as an empath, I could not prevent these experiences. Read the rest of this entry »
Years ago I had a client who invited me to her house for a small social gathering. The moment I walked through the glass doors that lead outside to her garden, I clairaudiently heard the word, “suicide.” At the same moment a picture flashed through my mind of a man with a gun in his hand. I paused. The man seemed happy?
I casually walked outside as if nothing had happened, but I was rattled. My client sensed that I was preoccupied and asked if there was something wrong. So, I asked her if she knew about a person who had lived in the house that had committed suicide. She then told me that her husband, Daniel, had taken his life with shotgun 10 years ago. It happened right on the other side of those glass doors, exactly where I had the clairvoyant vision. Apparently he had been ill for many years and when he could no longer take it, he took his own life. Read the rest of this entry »
