We’ve all experienced the pain, sorrow, rejection, anger, guilt and heartbreak of losing a relationship. Whether through separation, divorce, illness or death, the feelings that these situations bring can be devastating to our person, and our world.
These feelings are real, these feelings are valid, and these feelings are completely normal. They are all part of the grieving process. It is how our mind deals with loss and enables us to heal, in order to move forward into a bigger expression of life.
One of the beautiful things about life is that we are all unique, individual expressions of the Infinite. One of the common threads that connects us is that each of us experiences the full spectrum of emotions, from pleasure to pain, and most assuredly, back again. Read the rest of this entry »
Yesterday is history, tomorrow a mystery, today a gift from Spirit. That is why it is called ‘the present.’ The present is indeed a gift – one that is often ignored. At any given moment we can become miserable. Life is a constant series of choices and decisions. We decide what we want to pay attention to, and what we let go.
This can be a dangerous path. If you are in denial; unconsciously running away from your feelings; living in a fantasy world; using unrealistic thinking; or abuse drugs or alcohol; you can indeed ignore reality and red flags.
There is a balance. We live in the world, but we do not control it. A wonderful saying from the Twelve-Step Program is, “Do the footwork, let go of the results.” One can add to that… ‘don’t forget to smell the roses.’ Read the rest of this entry »
As we finally settle into this year, many of our well-intended new year’s resolutions have already been abandoned. Yet, it is not too late. This is early part of the year is the perfect time for us to still look back, as well as make plans for the future. But where do we begin, especially as it applies to our spiritual and psychic life?
Looking spiritually inward is not quite as simple as cleaning out our closets or drawers. We may have lingering negative influences we’re not even aware of. It’s human nature to want to keep old habits instead of creating newer, healthier ones. So, as we move into the year, it’s more important than ever to make ourselves spiritually healthy.

The students that committed suicide at the colleges where I taught were always the brightest stars, known for being happy, and helpful to others. People were always shocked when they chose suicide.
America worships ‘happy’ and ‘positive attitude.’ What is our aversion to the so-called ‘negative’? Why are we rejected for being a ‘downer’?
If a person is truly happy and content from the inside out, someone else’s upset mood, depression or anxiety will not affect you! People react badly to ‘negativity’ because it stirs up their own unresolved issues. It makes them feel their unresolved issues. Read the rest of this entry »
Finding true love is hard. Literally. At times it feels like you have hit a cement wall, but it happens, and it hurts. The pain of love that once was, and is now unrequited, is not something one would wish on your worst enemies.
You may have loved with the hope and possibility of your love being returned, but instead you loved someone who just didn’t feel the same way. Or, you loved someone deeply, who also loved you in return, and then for some unknown reason, they turned off the switch.
When this happens, you are hurt in ways that are unimaginable and extremely bewildering. This person loved you and you loved them. Maybe they met someone new? Maybe their love was never real? Whatever the case, you’re left in excruciating pain. Read the rest of this entry »
Moonstone is a very powerful stone. According to Crystal Vaults, Moonstone is traditionally thought to lose its silvery luster if the owner continues to hold onto anger. In the Orient, the Moonstone was known as a “phenomenal gem” that should be worn on Mondays.
Scott Cunningham writes that the mythical deities associated with Moonstone are Diana, Seline, Isis, and all Luna Goddesses. He notes that, according to legend, Moonstone is more potent during a waxing moon and less in the waning moon. Moonstone is receptive and draws love, and you can wear it or simply carry it.

Recent psychic readings, and the sort of questions clients have been asking, have made me all the more aware of the responsibility of the work we do. A few words alone, a recommended path to follow, or a suggested course of action we advise, can have a huge impact on people’s lives.
When I find myself feeling hopeless at the plight of the world, and its people and animals, I always remind myself: if I can just make a difference to the life of one person or animal today, then it’s all worth it.
In 2004, I was working at a psychic fayre one Saturday. Before visitors arrived, one of the other psychics asked me to read for her, and insisted that she read for me in return. Her reading was so negative and threw me so off balance that I packed up for the day and went home. Read the rest of this entry »
The only way we are really going to make the future work is by allowing others to do their ‘own thing’ in their own way. Our future survival and evolution as a species will not be found in sameness, alikeness, similarity, or coercion. Instead, we must build a new global civilization based on expanding diversity, variety, assortment and multiplicity. Yet, there is one fundamental condition – for it to be successful it must be achieved in harmony with others and our planet.
From the perspective of the old mainstream view of our world, such a future world of unhindered diversity appears quite impossible and non-sensical, because that would mean that everybody does their own thing in their own way. And that seems really counter-intuitive… even dangerous. A disaster waiting to happen!
History has taught us that individuals doing things their ‘own way’ eventually manifests itself as selfishness, greed, creed, personal preference, chauvinism, dogma and ego-centered beliefs – which has caused most of our wars, the establishment of our borders, the separation between the rulers and subjects, and the division between rich and poor.
