When my father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2005, he seemed to be equally upset by an event that happened many years prior. A psychic medium had told him that he would never get cancer. This was the same well-known psychic medium who had helped him make the transition from atheist to spiritualist, by giving him undeniable evidence of the existence of the afterlife.
My father often mentioned that health prediction, whenever he relayed the stories of his many subsequent readings with the same medium. The prediction came along with messages from my grandfather, which confirmed specific details of his final battle with lung cancer. He had been a smoker and also worked in the coalmines in Wales during his youth. Read the rest of this entry »
Have you ever felt inextricably drawn to visit a foreign country? Do you have a desire to learn about a certain culture or period in history that intrigues you? Are you fond of, or do you collect certain items or statues that represent a type of spiritual practice? Your interests alone can reveal so much about former lifetimes you’ve held on Earth, as well as other planets.
Reincarnation is a topic that has captivated people’s attention both historically and in modern times. There are so many documentaries and articles available that provide unbelievable evidence from people who’ve experienced past life memories. Some of which that are most convincing are from children!

Recently a trusted friend posted on my Facebook timeline a link to the Jeremy Buck song Turn my Ship Around, from the album Vibe. I had never heard of Jeremy Buck, but I clicked it and listened. The song’s lyrics reminded me of times when I felt no one listened to my concerns, when people tried to bully me, when people tried to undermine me and were being false friends. It reminded me that through those times, I ensured I found a new direction and was determined to fulfill my goals to the best of my abilities.
The song reminds us to simply “turn our ship around” when feeling that we are heading in the wrong direction. The question however is what type of ship are you in, or steering? Perhaps a Kayak, a 12ft fishing boat with outboard motor, a 35ft cruiser or speedboat, or an oil tanker or cruise ship? What kind of ship are you commanding? Read the rest of this entry »
First of all, what happens to this suitcase? Do we open it ourselves, wait for someone to come along and give us the combination that will release the contents, or perhaps we might just set it aside for future use?
Even if we undertake to open it immediately, does this secure our position? Allow me to give you a couple of examples in order that you might grasp how this all can work either for us, or against us. Read the rest of this entry »
Those things that you might view as imperfections or flaws in your physical make-up are all by design. Who you are is no accident.
It is like a beautiful piece of art and the artist is chiselling out the design. Within the piece of wood or stone that the artist is working on, lies magnificence and glory. The artist works day by day, carving out his design with patience, with trust, and the artist steps back in awe as the magnificence is finally revealed.
You are much like such a piece of artwork that has yet to be discovered, yet to be revealed. So, trust and know that there are no flaws, there are no imperfections. Things you do or don’t do, things you say or don’t say are all by design. You created a beautiful contract before you came into this physical being. Read the rest of this entry »
There is the fashionable notion these days for individuals to be branded as ‘psychics’ or ’empaths’ if they are emotionally sensitive, or display a high level of compassion towards others. It is automatically assumed that people who are emotionally highly intelligent must also have an exceptional capacity for extra-sensory perception (ESP). Nothing could be further from the truth.
If anything, I believe this myth is only serving to confuse and mislead people, and may even cause further emotional damage, by imposing unreasonable expectations on some highly sensitive, or even emotionally vulnerable people.
I had many traumatic paranormal experiences in my childhood, and I was constantly overwhelmed by extra-sensory perceptions I did not understand. To find reliable information on the subject in those days was near impossible. The confusion and frustration I had to endure in my youth – often due to the ignorance of others – made me vow to research, learn and share as much as I could about psychic abilities. If I can spare just one gifted child unnecessary trauma, or inspire just one adult to come out of the ‘clair closet’, the bewilderment I had to endure would all be worth it. Thus, the reason for this article. Read the rest of this entry »
Friends, as opposed to acquaintances or associates, are a rare find. We are typically a society of users and takers, where social networking has erroneously become synonymous with friendship. In fact, friendship and networking has very little in common.
As children of the Information Age, we have become acculturated to disconnection as a norm, merely using each other and calling it friendship when it is mutually beneficial, and calling it a variety of unsavory names when it is not mutually beneficial. Friendship for business and networking is quite different from true friendship. Read the rest of this entry »
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 »
