A friend named Laura lost her husband to terminal illness just a few weeks ago. I have known this friend for over three decades, and our friendship has been one of touching base every now and again, mainly on birthdays and anniversaries. She did let me know, however when Bill had passed.
The last time I saw Bill was about 15 years ago, when he came to me for divination – throwing the bones. Our connection wasn’t such a strong one that I would expect him to be present in my dreams within just four days of his passing. But he was there, in three of my dreams, one after the other. I gave those dreams very little attention, so the memory of them was vague by the following day.
My friend Laura has always been somewhat skeptical, even afraid of ‘the other side.’ When I had the fourth dream, still, within only a few days of Bill’s passing, I noted every detail and told her what had happened, and asked how she would feel if I shared what I felt was a message for her.

Last year, I woke from a dream that had me worried about a close friend for months before he went on vacation. I vividly ‘saw’ him sliding off a dock and into the mouth of a giant shark, which savored every bit of him, before he disappeared. Alarmed, I awoke and sat up, shaken by the gruesome vision.
Knowing my friend well, I knew that if I told him about my dream he would just gently look at me with concern, as if I was crazy, and then change the subject. He would give me the same expression he gave me when I explained to him that fairies were real, but are not visible to everyone. I knew that if I pressed the subject, he might even make fun of me to all our other friends. Yet, I knew I had a responsibility to warn him of impending danger, but how? Read the rest of this entry »
Dreams represent messages from the unconscious to reveal our innermost psyche — that which is not known or acknowledged by our conscious self. Dreams are windows to the unconscious, the intuitive part of ourselves. Carl Jung calls this “the shadow.”
According to Jung, the shadow represents non-thought the conscious thought process does not wish to acknowledge. For example, many people have dreams that foretell of events, but consciously it may be too painful or threatening for them to consciously consider. The shadow-self thus protects us, until the message becomes too powerful and breaks through in a dream. Read the rest of this entry »
I believe most people are born with the ability to sense what is going on in the present moment, and also what will happen in the future. Conditioning from how we were raised, past relationships, or religion, can often times suppress our psychic gifts because we are told it is ‘evil’ or wrong.
In order to reconnect with those parts of yourself there are activities and exercises you can do to reawaken your intuition. For me, I started by writing down my dreams, as well as thoughts and feelings I had about a person or situation. Using these notes I would make observations on the accuracy of my perceptions and predictions. Read the rest of this entry »
The Tarot’s suit of Cups represents the element of water and signifies our feelings and emotions in readings. It also denotes love, intuition, desires, dreams and relationships – including professional, personal, family and casual relationships.
Beginning with the Ace of Cups through the Court cards (Page, Knight, Queen and King) reveal feelings, intuition and love in a reading. Depending on the context of the Tarot reading and the nature of the particular spread, the Cups describe how we may be feeling towards love and how others in our life feel about love. Is there love between the querent and the other party? Read the rest of this entry »
If you are wanting to develop your psychic abilities, making time to practice, and developing your own set of psychic symbols, are key to seeing results. At some point, if you’re consistent, you will start seeing evidence that you are opening up psychically. One of the first things that showed up for me was that I started to have vivid dreams at night that seemed to come true.
I have always kept a dream journal and have always been interested in my dreams. I read a lot of books on dream interpretation and analysis and have always thought that my dreams were trying to tell me something. But when my dreams started playing out in real life, I was quite amazed. And this may be the first area where you can get very clear, concise messages from your intuition – from your dreams.

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 »
If you have been practicing meditation, opening your chakras and playing guessing games to develop your intuition, you may have started seeing and hearing things that you have questions about. Hopefully, you are also keeping a journal and writing down anything that seems to ‘pop’ into your mind while meditating. Often these are messages from your spirit guides.
As you develop psychically, you usually start to become aware of a presence or maybe multiple presences around you while you meditate. You may catch glimpses of faces, usually benevolent and smiling, while your eyes are closed. Or you may hear a voice, or chorus of voices, usually saying loving things or singing. You can often also feel a connection to all living things in the world, and to the air, the water, and the earth. Perhaps you feel the presence of a greater intelligence that is all around, and within and connected to all things in life. Read the rest of this entry »
