We should all take the time to visit a nursing home or a senior’s retirement village, and speak to the residents. It can be a life-changing experience. Recently, I have had the opportunity to speak to several seniors and one of the questions I asked them was, “If you had your life to live again, what would you do differently?”
Some said they would change nothing, as they had family, friends and lots of love in their lives. They also knew the true joy of being in the moment, and how laughter was the healer of most wounds in relationships, and otherwise. However, the vast majority responded that they would have been more true to themselves. These seniors told me they would have followed the original path placed in their soul, instead of living for what someone else wanted, or what someone else thought they should be.

Life is difficult at times, but it doesn’t have to be. There is one ingredient, one key element that we can all apply to make life less stressful. It can make life so much more enjoyable and fulfilling. What is it you ask? Why it is love!
“Love? Get real!” you may say, because you have had your fair share of disappointment, heartbreak, and even betrayal.
Many of my clients have had such life-challenging trials and tribulations. I always encourage them to find love in their heart, despite whatever they may have gone through. Yes, unconditional love is powerful! Let it permeate every cell of your being and direct it outwards to those who are difficult to be with. Send it to those who you otherwise can’t stand, or dread to be around. Allow the healing power of love to be the soothing balm in and around your entire being. Read the rest of this entry »
My husband’s name is Ken and this year is our 50th wedding anniversary. Even after all this time, I still enjoy looking back to see how the Universal Force conspired to bring us together in this lifetime.
I was born on Canada’s East Coast and Ken is from the West Coast. We met each other smack in the middle, in the Province of Manitoba. There is an interesting tale attached to all of this. From the day my father and I first laid eyes on each other, there was an intense dislike between us from the very beginning. This materialized into a combative position that lasted most of our lives. My father was a violent, sadistic and cruel man, however, luckily for me my siblings were some of the best the Universe had to offer, and this helped offset what we had to endure from him.
Psychics often have songs come to mind during readings, or we find they are playing on the car radio after we were just thinking of that special family member or friend. We then take that as a sign that they are watching over us and that they had just stepped in from the Spirit side of life to make their presence know. These songs can be the triggers for memories that we once treasured, or continue to treasure, or to remind you how precious and loved you are. Read the rest of this entry »
Are you feeling stuck in your relationships or career? It is time to disentangle yourself from that which is no longer serving you in your life. Let go of people, jobs, careers, ‘stuff’ that are holding you back and keeping you stuck. Every time you remove something old from your life, it allows space for something new to come in.
Sometimes, when you feel stuck, the easiest way to get the energy moving again is to begin to de-clutter your physical space. You like to accumulate a lot of ‘stuff’ and then you get attached to this stuff, and attachment breeds ‘stuck energy.’ In order for energy to flow freely, as it should, it is important for you to simplify your life. What in your life do you need to get rid of? 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 »
Ancestor worship is a wide-spread belief system, in both primitive and sophisticated cultures. Ancestral healing unfortunately gets very little attention these days, even though some of our patterns and energy imbalances may well stem from our genetic pool.
My first exposure to the concept of communicating with our Ancestors occurred many years ago, during initiation into the Southern African culture of divining and healing. During my training to become a Sangoma*, in a remote area in Southern Africa, time was always put aside for offering prayers to, and for consulting with the Ancestors. My mentor taught me how the Ancestor energies affected their still living relatives, and how, in most African cultures, they are seen as being our link to the spirit world.

I have counseled so many people that are normally outgoing, loving, supportive, wonderful souls, but sometimes these souls are so giving they give themselves away. They forget to protect themselves in the process. Have you ever had this presence of an emotional vampire in your life? This can happen in a love relationship or a friendship, or with a family member.
Is their needs all that count, but yours never ever do? Love is not love, and friendship is not friendship, if you put aside yourself on a daily basis. This is what we have to remind ourselves of on a continual basis. Sure, relationships are give and take, but when they seem to take and take, and there is no giving, something is off.
