You are enough. If only, as we grew up, we had heard more such words, even if there was an additional “… and yet strive for more”. The fact is we were raised in a world where competition is prevalent; where our insecurities are often emphasized to us, or used as leverage (intentionally or otherwise); where our personal beliefs about ourselves potentially delays our soul evolution.
As partners in the Universe we say to ourselves, “Everything has a reason, we each have a soul purpose, all is in Divine Order.” Yet, when a tragedy or life shattering moment hits, we are so intimately impacted that we have to dig deep to console ourselves and try to reframe that that tragedy has a Divine purpose, and that you have enough and are enough in that moment.

I have heard disturbing stories of metaphysical gurus and spiritual teachers sexually exploiting their followers or people under their care. This raises questions around the ethics of being in a helping profession, and also how to be on the receiving end of such help or support. Is the spiritual community paying enough attention to red flags and boundaries?
When do we set boundaries? One does not want to be too paranoid, however waiting too long might send the wrong message, like “your behavior is okay.” We want the help, but sometimes the price we are asked to pay is not so clear. I shall explore the intricacies, the dance, of this aspect of a helping relationship through the narrative below. Read the rest of this entry »
Living among the muggles* I have spent decades hiding my secret life as a spiritual being. I remember as a child being terrified thinking my mother (a therapist) might put me in a funny farm. I even made my big brother promise he would not let that happen! Poor guy. He was worried for me too…
I was always so strange. I was a full-blown flower child, a starseed who thought the world existed for us to share, and that we are meant to support each other. And for decades I was able to live in and create that around me. I look back now and wonder how I managed not to get robbed, raped, or killed? I wandered through most of my life trusting absolutely everyone. Read the rest of this entry »
To create, attract and manifest is an innate metaphysical ability we all have access to as beings of Divine origin. Jane Roberts writes in The Nature of Personal Reality, “You are given the gifts of the gods; you create your reality according to your beliefs. Yours is the creative energy that makes your world. There are no limitations to the self except those you believe in.”
To be a creator is a function of our free will. We are all co-creators of our shared, physical reality and we shape our own destiny in every single moment of our lives. What you think, feel, believe, wish for, and desire in this very moment, is what you will become tomorrow, and the day after. Read the rest of this entry »
I recently heard someone say that meditation makes them feel “depressed.” Really? Not dealing with issues is what makes us depressed, not meditation!
Suppressing our old hurts or fears can cause depression. What we do, typically, is to layer “fun”, mindless entertainment and other frivolous distractions on top of the stinking swamp of our unhealed wounds – be they soul wounds or childhood wounds, or anything in between. This is like using air freshener, rather than take out the garbage.
The pursuit of “fun” is the modern drug of choice. We self-medicate by shopping on credit, forcing ourselves into insane “adventures”, attending endless social events, indulging in sexual excess, overeating, abusing drugs and alcohol, or participating in yet another spiritual workshop, seminar or retreat that promises to be the ultimate solution to our life. We indulge in these hedonistic pursuits to keep our oozing emotional wounds in check. Read the rest of this entry »
The age of approximately 28 to 32 years is known as our “Saturn return.” Spiritually it is an exceptionally profound time for everyone. Astrologically it is when Saturn returns to the exact same placement it was at when we were born. Any lesson you have not learned, any challenge you have not faced, anything you have been in denial about will come forward in you life around this time, like it or not. This is why I tell people, “learn the lesson and learn it fast.” Avoidance, addictions and denial will not save you from your Saturn return. In fact, it will make it quite worse.
he Saturn return is like a final exam. If you haven’t been studying all semester, it can be terrifying and overwhelming. However, even if you have been studying, it will still be challenging and you may realize there were things you missed, or forgot to study. Read the rest of this entry »
I can’t speak for other psychic readers, or what they may do when it comes to this practice, but I personally encourage my clients to get a reading from a fresh set of eyes – someone with a new perspective on their situation that I may not be seeing. Want to see another reader? By all means!
Do we as readers get too close to our closest clientele? Can this affect our readings? I’d like not to think so. In some client cases I know both parties involved, I may even have done counseling for them. I’d like to think I keep a very objective outlook and that I’m able to see past any emotions and any triggers that may come up in the process of a psychic reading or counseling session.

Cancer can also be manipulative, defensive, anxious, and insecure. They can be severe, oppositional, sensitive to real and imagined hurts, biased and dishonest.
Cancers are a paradox. They are a water sign and this makes them emotionally open, sensitive, and intensely self-reflective. They are also a cardinal sign, which makes them enterprising and ambitious, while having a strong external focus. Is it any wonder they have mood swings? Cancer’s emotional sensitivity is one of their more positive characteristics. Read the rest of this entry »
