A long history remains of brilliant thinkers, scientists, politicians, religious leaders and scholars who had throughout the ages studied the mysteries. They suffered greatly, as they were infamous in their knowledge and advancement of the sciences, and thus reviled and distrusted, due to the change they brought about in human history. It often began as a study of religion and the cosmos, which opened up the doorways to new ways of thinking.
None could be a better example than Galileo Galilei, who was forced to recant on his knees, on penalty of death, that the world was not only round, but that we were orbiting the sun.
Geordiano Bruno also faced the Roman Inquisition. He was a priest, philosopher, mathematician and astrologer. He was burned at the stake for heresy due to his unorthodox cosmological theories. 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 »
When seeking guidance, a good spiritual counselor or psychic advisor can give hard, practical advice. They can be like compasses in a dark night, and they can read the signs and be forces of measure when there is no point of reference.
Some, like astrologers or diviners, simply watch for patterns, tides and symbols to pass on their messages; like data readers of the Divine they can look for clues for their clients, organize ideas and offer orientation and direction. Yet, without the reference of personal experience (the common point of comfort that our clients seek) many problems cannot be properly addressed in people’s lives. 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 »
We are repeatedly hearing lately that the children of today no longer play outside; they are no longer physically active, like their parents and grandparents used to be. Supposedly all they do is watch television and sit around all day with computers, tablets and smart phones.
Perhaps some of this is true. But if so, why is that? Of course, it is absolutely natural for a child to have an abundance of energy. It is in the nature of youngsters to run around and be full of life, exuberant and active. But truth be told, when children act that way in today’s world, we often imply that they are maladjusted or have an ailment or disorder. Highly active kids have become the scourge of many parents and teachers in modern society – the dreaded “hyperactive syndrome” or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Are the children truly to be blamed? Read the rest of this entry »
There are many people who want to be exceptional in every aspect of their lives, but who struggle to muster the courage to see it through. They want a better job, more love, more money, to be physically fit… the list goes on. They feel that they are here to do more and that they can do more. It is like an inner voice that “calls to them” to be more, do more. But often the call is ignored, or feared, due to a lack of courage.
The trouble is that during the formative years of our life someone rolled their eyes when we boldly declared, “I want to go to medical school and find the cure for cancer.” Or, “I want to be an astronaut or Olympic skier.” Our heartfelt declarations were maybe met with someone telling us our ambitions were stupid and annoying, or we were simply ignored.

There are many types of spiritual practices that will bring alignment to your life. Spiritual practices are the methods by which we understand the inner world, and learn just how much impact our inner world has on the outer world.
Jesus said, “With faith the size of a mustard seed you could move a mountain.” Faith is a constant, and always brings forth the manifestation of our inner beliefs. Spiritual practice allows the practitioner to gain spiritual awareness, and by doing so shifts negative or useless beliefs into useful beliefs that can have a profound impact on the journey of life.

Divine messengers and emissaries, the Archangels are the foremost of the host of angels, and they help and guide us in our daily lives. Although they are established in many religious traditions, anyone may call upon them for assistance.
Most of the Archangels have names ending in “-el,” which means “of, or in God.” Though the spiritual traditions debate how many Archangels there are, the following are some of the most well-known to humanity.
Michael (Who is like God?) is the leader of the Archangels, often depicted as a warrior angel with a blazing sword. He can help in conquering our fears and anxieties, motivating us to do greater things, and seeking the truth. He’s also a powerful ally in breaking our addictions. Read the rest of this entry »
