Our wise ancestors worshipped the stars in the heavens above and considered them to be a direct reflection of the earth below. As you may know, the movement of the planets in our solar system absolutely mirrors everything that is occurring on Earth at any point in time.
Have you heard of the deities known as Nut and Geb? In Egyptian mythology Nut and Geb are twins. Nut is the sky goddess and Geb is the Earth god. In the imagery found in ancient art, Nut is typically shown to be arching over, or mirroring Geb, who lies below. As above, so below…
The Egyptians were exceptionally precise astronomers. The three pyramids at Giza mirror perfectly the three stars in Orion’s belt above. They are Alnitak, Alnilam, and Mintaka. These three stars form the most striking and isolated line in the heavens. Read the rest of this entry »
Dreams tell the hidden truth and help us to understand ourselves. Shamans and mystics believe that there are basically three types of dreams.
Lower world dreams connect us with our instincts. We see these dreams in archetypal symbols, myths, colors, nature, gods, goddesses, animas, elementals and mythical beasts and characters. There are secrets hidden in these symbols. Archetypes are also present in everyday objects such as cars, or clothes.
Middle world dreams are where we work out emotional issues in our daily lives. We dream about ourselves at work, play, and where we live. We dream of our relationships, our crushes, old flames, our family. Read the rest of this entry »
I believe cats, like many animals, have special gifts. They are mystical creatures that share a special world. Unlike other animals, I think somehow they are aware they have these gifts and share special secrets with each other, within a mystical and magical life.
Animals send us messages of healing and caring if we are intuitive and open to receiving them. Cats can be instrumental in helping us find peace when we are troubled or upset.
When I am doing a psychic reading, one of my cats, Paddy, always insists on being near me. On calls, when the caller is particularly troubled, Paddy begins to meow and almost takes over the reading. On one occasion I had to gently guide him out of the room. It is almost like he is trying to use his psychic and intuitive abilities, and I am merely his channel. I feel grounded when he is around me; it is like he knows the person calling needs guidance and support. Read the rest of this entry »
Moonstone is a very powerful stone. According to Crystal Vaults, Moonstone is traditionally thought to lose its silvery luster if the owner continues to hold onto anger. In the Orient, the Moonstone was known as a “phenomenal gem” that should be worn on Mondays.
Scott Cunningham writes that the mythical deities associated with Moonstone are Diana, Seline, Isis, and all Luna Goddesses. He notes that, according to legend, Moonstone is more potent during a waxing moon and less in the waning moon. Moonstone is receptive and draws love, and you can wear it or simply carry it.

We all take for granted the sun’s diurnal and seasonal activity and its life-giving energy, but to many civilizations it was also its passage that marked the agricultural and seasonal alterations that were essential for survival and migration. For the ancients the Sun marked the passage of time, as it went through the twelve Celestial Houses of the Zodiac.
It is interesting to note that the Sun itself is one of the orbs that acquires the characteristics of every astrological house, or the personality of each zodiac sign it passes through. When we look deeper into the astrological methods used to divine the planets, we know, in part, the sun is not a planet, by a technical margin. It has a third path of travel known as the precession of the equinoxes, in which it retrogrades around the Zodiac through the twelve signs at the rate of one degree every 72 years.

Today’s full moon on July 19th is traditionally known as the Full Mead Moon in Germany.
Long, long ago, God of wisdom, poetry and war, Odin, made a decision to send a younger God, Mani, to the skies. Mani was a very handsome God and his duty was to drive the chariot and fill the dark night skies with light.
Odin collected all things wasted on Earth and sent them with Mani. He collected misspent time and broken vows, abandoned friends and squandered wealth.
Every night Mani’s chariot was filled to the brim with unanswered prayers and wasted talent, unfulfilled promises and favors. He also carried the hearts of the ones who did not love, and the memories of the ones who did not care to remember.
Mani took two children with him too, a blonde boy named Hyuki, and his sister called Bil. But this was not Odin’s original plan. Read the rest of this entry »
Psychometry is a method of divination in which the psychic or medium reads the energy vibration of objects and divining from it visions or impressions associated with the object. These impressions are individual to the psychometrist or clairtangent psychic, who may either see, feel, hear, or taste according to their own psychic gift.
Often when a psychic is consulted in a missing person’s case a piece of clothing or personal belonging of the person is presented to them. This often proves helpful in the investigation. Jewelry, especially those made of conducting metals like gold, silver or copper, are the easiest for the psychometrist to read, because it has been close to the wearer. Read the rest of this entry »
What happens to the soul after the body dies? There are many explanations, the most common being that the soul moves on to another place and another life. Past life readings and regressions have been able to prove that we do indeed live many lifetimes.
But where does the soul really go right after death? Ghosts of the departed have been seen in many forms, such as images, scents, sounds and full apparitions. How long do they linger on this earth before making a transition? That too has many theories attached to it. The Ancient Egyptians however had a very well defined belief in what happened to the soul after death. The soul contained in the physical body possessed many aspects that all had different spiritual duties. Read the rest of this entry »
