Relationships flourish when they are put in the proper climate for growth. When it comes to intimate and romantic relationships it is integral for our own personal growth to recognize what we want and expect within the situation. Boundaries are a powerful way to cultivate the experiences that are more meaningful in our relationships.
Often when I am reading for a person that is having consistent challenges, Spirit will identify similar challenges within the situation. This is not universal, because challenges can stem from many sources. However, I would like to identify some consistent messages that do come up related to relationships.
One issue that comes up quite often is a focus on fantasy rather than reality. This is not to say that fantasy is bad, but when an individual expends a lot of their time and energy fantasizing about how a situation will evolve, they can potentially fall in love with the fantasy instead of the reality.

In my previous post I mentioned some astrological points that are in all our charts, namely, Lilith. This concept in Astrology is named after the female demonic figure Lilith in Jewish mythology. There are so many dark stories and myths surrounding Lilith, and therefore some scary points in Astrology have been named after her. Her name evokes thoughts of the mysterious, malevolent, sinister, forbidden and catastrophic. The negative is certainly valid, and it is up to the native to act out these energies in an, if possible, positive way.
I also described a not-so-evil feature of Lilith – one that came to me through meditation. The positive energy I received was about survival. This dark goddess is not all bad. She shows us how to work through situations we can’t always describe to others. Read the rest of this entry »
This is a story about Synda, the shapeshifting cougar. Synda is human, but she also has the gift of being a shapeshifter. She cares for all homeless pets discarded by their uncaring humans. These careless people buy their pets, domestic or wild, just because they were cute or exotic to own, as a social status symbol. In other words, they become pet owners just to show off to their friends. Then when they find out there is so much work to keeping a pet, they just simply get rid of them – sent off to fend for themselves, hurt and broken. Synda then finds these unwanted animals and become their mother and caretaker.
Synda knows that there are also good humans around, and she would regularly visit them especially at night. Since she possesses the power of invisibility, they are not aware of her, and don’t become frightened by the sight of a rather ‘large cat’ sitting by them and smiling! Read the rest of this entry »
Sadly, mystery is lacking lately. We used to enjoy what they called in the movie industry the sense of wonder or ‘the illusion of life’ upon which so much the magic of film and theater was predicated upon. Books allowed for imagination to create pathways upon which we could grow our intelligence. We had so much of a gasp of beauty within the dreams of writers and within their dreams we could create our futures and selves. Our futures should like religion or spirit which are based upon the unknown, which should be based upon mystery and the wishes and desires to attain the unknown. Read the rest of this entry »
Faeries love fun and love to play! When you are experiencing a creative phase, or feeling called to go outdoors, or into the garden, there’s a good chance you are being called out to have some fun and free spirited playtime with the faeries.
Typically, faeries, or fae, are easiest for us to connect with during the times of year when seasonal energy portals are open on the cross quarters holidays of the Summer and Winter Solstice, and Spring and Fall Equinox. These times are traditionally also celebrated in the ancient pagan festivals and religious holy days of Imbolc (Saint Brigid’s Day) on February 1st, Ostara (Easter) on March 21st, Beltane (St. Walburga’s Day)on May 1st, Litha (St John’s Day) on June 20th, Lammas (Loaf Mass Day) on August 1st, and Samhain (All Saints’ Day) on October 31st.

The Isle of Avalon is a mythical place of healing, psychic learning, crafting, and the life and times of King Arthur. Figures such as Morgan Le Fay, King Arthur and Merlin the Magician are just a few legendary names associated with this Holy Isle. Though no longer here in the physical world, Avalon is still accessible through the inner worlds by way of meditation or immrama, an Irish-Welsh word meaning ‘spiritual journey on the astral plane.’
Avalon was known as training ground for priestesses who dedicated their life to spirituality, and to the Great Mother Goddess. These women trained in the arts of clairvoyance, herbalism, weaving and devotion to the Divine feminine. Read the rest of this entry »
The third eye is the chakra or energy center that is associated with clear thought. Many equate this to intuition, but it really goes beyond that. It empowers us to gain spiritual ‘sight’ related to all circumstances of life.
When the third eye is ‘closed,’ it is difficult for us to recognize the purpose of what we are experiencing and it also inhibits us from having an unclouded vision of the present. Our egotistic perceptions can then get in the way and we are unable to shift our situation into a more positive experience.
If you feel as though this energy center is blocked, there are simple steps to unclog your spiritual sight and awaken your third eye.
Visioning or Visualization
Visioning and visualization are tools that you can use to mentally envision a future that you desire. This can be as simple as envisioning a positive day at work or school, to envisioning a major goal that you want to accomplish as you move forward in life. Read the rest of this entry »
Every parent thinks their child is special and gifted. In fact, all children are born with some degree of psychic ability, and some keep it throughout their lives. How can we tell, and what is the best course of action, when we find a psychic child in our midst?
The main reason people lose psychic ability as they age is because of some grown-up or authority figure dismissing these very real gifts as their imagination or ‘make-believe.’ Children don’t know what is real or not, and when they are blessed with psychic gifts, they will believe… even if you don’t.
Though you may not understand, it’s important not to dismiss the child with statements like, “It’s only your imagination,” or “Stop, you’re scaring me!” The more a child hears negative statements about their extra-sensory or paranormal experiences, the more they will associate their psychic gifts with shame, anger, humiliation, or sadness.
