April was a month of transformation, new beginnings and change. It was a ‘shift’ month where many found their lives in a state of confusion and not knowing what the cause is. Relationships fell apart. Not just marriages or soul partner relationships, but also relationships with friends, family, career, loss of material items, and so much more.
Why is this happening at this time? When I put this question out to spirit, this is the answer I received in return.
“Your life is changing and so must the attachments that come along with it. We are removing those things that no longer serve you as we know what is best for you even if you think otherwise. Read the rest of this entry »
It’s okay to feel afraid. You have an excellent built-in system for self-protection. There are many legitimate fears such as raging house fires or menacing wild animals, and your body is designed to trigger fight-or-flight responses to help you in times of great peril.
However, these are not the fears that we are referencing here. We are speaking of the ingrained fears that manifest because you have allowed yourself to become trapped by a common belief system, or perhaps someone else’s past experience.
Our lesson for you today is to nurture your ability to step back and evaluate these fears before allowing them to take hold and prevent you from living your most exciting life, becoming your very best self or, worse, crushing your potential. Read the rest of this entry »
It may be helpful to make a list of all of the negative attributes of the person your trying to get over, but when we look deeper, as psychic advisors, we often see a web of energy entanglement present between the caller and the person they are trying so hard to sever ties with. There is often so much more going on than simply the physical and emotional. Hence, the challenge to break free.
“I want to release him,” says the client, almost pleadingly. Sometimes the caller can feel as if they are just about getting over the subject of their affection, and then… wham! A message, a media post, or sudden surge of longing surfaces to claw them back into wanting the relationship at any cost. This often reminds me of popular oldies like Engelbert Humperdinck’s Please Release Me and Gladys Knight’s Midnight Train To Georgia (I‘d rather live in his world… than live without him in mine).

The very first, and rather touching description of humility that I ever heard was during my earliest days of following a Twelve Step Program of Alcoholics Anonymous. I was read out by a man with 16 years of sobriety:
Humility is perpetual quietness of heart. It is to have no trouble. It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore. To wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me. It is to be at rest when nobody praises me, and when I am blamed or despised, it is to have a blessed home in myself where I can go in and shut the door and kneel to my Father in secret and be at peace, as in a deep sea of calmness when all around and about is seeming trouble.
My mentor in that program told me to try kneeling in prayer. She told me this humbling posture would strengthen my intention of any prayer I was reciting. Read the rest of this entry »
A few days ago my good friend Tom, whom I have known for a couple of years now, popped over for a visit – as he tends to do every now and again. Tom is quite smart and generally an all around nice, helpful person.
During the course of our conversations, Tom commented on the fact that although he is well into his 60’s now, his life has been somewhat dull and uneventful. He cannot understand why things for him appear to be always so bland and unexciting.
After a few probing questions on my part it soon became apparent that Tom had never really established any goals for himself and did not have any particular vision in mind for his future. There was never any thought of wealth or riches, aside from the fact he shared the hope of many of one day winning a lottery. He is just one of those individuals who believe that somehow the world would open up for him and life would take on a whole new meaning without any input from him. Read the rest of this entry »
As a child I always enjoyed visiting the English Tudor homes open to the public, particularly Hampton Court, which had a maze to run into, hide in the hedgerow, get to the centre and then find my way back out. Hearing the cackle and playful squealing of other children, even bumping into others as I turned a corner, and encountering many dead ends en-route to the centre, made for a thrilling experience.
I also remember at the circus being in a maze of the hall of mirrors and trying to find my way through so many weird reflections of myself. Frustration would rise up inside of me as joy turned to brief concern or panic. Later I moved to solving mazes in the puzzle books.
There is a distinct difference between a maze and a labyrinth. Mazes are often thought to have, in earnest been established circa 13th century, with one of the most famous being Hampton Court in England. Yet, in fact, maze-like structures were found under buildings from the Roman Empire days, and even used around castles in Medieval Europe to confuse the enemy. So, mazes demonstrated or represented a challenge, it creates the potential for confusion through its many changes in direction and dead ends, forcing one to retrace ones steps.

Many industrialized nations place a great deal of emphasis on being special and getting noticed. These days you can become a celebrated just for existing in the public eye, such as Paris Hilton and the Kardashian family.
Many people would never admit they have this desire or need; many do not notice how ingrained this is in the culture of our society. Yet, many people get psychic and spiritual readings, because they want to be told about their Mission, Purpose or Special Gifts. Many people I work with also have an unbelievable plethora of undefined and persistent physical and psychological ailments that disappear when the person gets busy, or starts being of real service to others.
This leads me to wonder if an egocentric existence, promoted by the mainstream media and bought by the consumer, isn’t one of our primary ailments. Is it not making many of us prime targets for inflated self-importance and grandiosity? Read the rest of this entry »
Stop and place your hand on your heart and allow the pain to rise to the surface almost as if you are drawing the pain from your body, from your physical space with your hand. Feel the energy in your hand get hotter and hotter, more intense as you draw the pain up, and out.
Imagine a beautiful beam of light coming from your hand, holding one hand over your heart and holding your other hand upward to the heavens. As you pull the pain from your heart, from your body, allow this beautiful light from heaven to move into your other hand. Now imagine this light from heaven coursing through your veins moving into your heart to heal that open wound, that open space that has been created as the pain begins to leave your body.
