It’s almost like being a ventriloquist on occasion – my voice will not change but if the person is in a stern frame of mind it may reflect in my vocal tone, or the way I emphasize certain phrases. I have been told I can parrot conversations verbatim, though I would say I would never know when I am. It is not like the words sound any different to me when I get them. If I were getting fragments of conversations, which I seem to, and then assume like an actress a little bit of their emotional gait, then you know I am deeply involved in the energy of the person I am assuming, and may act it out a little.

During my psychic readings one question pops up often: how do you keep stress and anxiety to where it is not affecting your personal or professional life.
One of my favorite techniques for stress reduction is Yoga. This form of ‘exercise’ originated in India and has greatly increased in popularity all over the world in recent years. It’s great exercise for your body, and your mind. Keeping a healthy body improves holistic health and reduces stress and anxiety in your life.
Yoga can be done just about anywhere, even in small spaces. All you need is comfortable clothing and a mat to stretch out on. Add a relaxing environment and music, and you’re set! Start slowly, working up to what is comfortable for you. This is key. Yoga can be very enjoyable and something to look forward to if it is performed with care and dedication.

Without some pre-planning it can be difficult to stay alert and aware enough to complete all my psychic readings each day with peak energy. It has become clear to me that I need to take care of my body and my mind to stay sharp for each seeker. I think this is true for all people as we age, but in asking so much of ourselves for the care giving of others, we psychic readers must be aware that it is especially true.
Quality Thinking Really Counts
The mind has to be exercised to function well. Looking over brain research, I learned that moving to a new location, having to learn a new business, learning a new language, taking up a new hobby, and even starting to learn a musical instrument, are all helpful exercises for brain repair. A brain needs to have new challenges to function well, both mundanely and psychically. Read the rest of this entry »
In these difficult times, we worry about money, career paths and choices, the perfect house, the perfect spouse. Our children. Have we raised them right? Or, have we spoiled them? For those of you who don’t know, two year olds grow up and teenagers grow out of it.
All of the above are legitimate concerns. But at some point we need to remember to worry only about the things we can control.
Stop focusing so much time and energy on the things you cannot control. All that gets us, at the end of the day, is a headache. Once we have learned to give that up, life seems a tiny bit easier. Read the rest of this entry »
Whether it is because of a brick wall or simply time to take time to understand what is going on in your life, standing still is an opportunity to allow yourself to become quiet, both in the active external world and the internal activity of the inner world.
Knowing when to build is the process of consolidating. It is the time to dig in and evaluate where you are on your journey. It is the road reflected and evaluated.
Consolidation is art of unification. It is the process of bringing together everything. In spiritual terms, it is the time to take a good look at what works for you and what does not apply. It is a process of standing still and taking whatever time is necessary to decide what tools you have acquired and how best to move forward from the now. Consolidating is a time to quiet the world around you and ask your Self:
How am I doing so far?
What lessons have I learned for my best and highest good? Read the rest of this entry »
Inherent to all humans, we sometimes experience blockages, or feel stuck in our lives. What causes these blockages, or short-circuits? Why do we have those times when we seem unable to get started on a project, or clearly think through a situation to determine a course of action? We feel like a writer, staring at a blank piece of paper, or an artist staring at a blank canvas.
Looking at my own experiences, and those of my clients, I see the common thread: we have lost touch with our intuition, our higher selves. We may develop diversion feelings, such as fear, anger, self-pity, procrastination, anxiety, negativity and sadness, or even panic. Or we blame ourselves, lowering our self-esteem, which further entrenches the blockage. If continued, this behavior becomes a never-ending cycle, making any movement forward even more daunting.
So, how do we turn the situation around? How do we move forward, like an army of one breaking through the blockage? How do we get in touch again with our intuitive selves? How do we change these patterns? Read the rest of this entry »
