It is so important to always keep the lines of communication open. Without it our relationships will not grow. I cannot stress enough how essential this is. It is the foundation, as it allows us to share our interests, to organize our lives and to make the best decisions.
Working together is the way we talk and listen to each other, not at each other. Always be clear about what you want, and need to say, so that your partner hears it accurately and understands you, and does not get any mixed signals. Share positive feelings, tell them how much they are appreciated and admired, and how important they are to you. Read the rest of this entry »
Today’s August Full Moon is traditionally known by many names in different cultures. The Native Americans call it the Sturgeon Moon or Green Corn Moon, and some tribes also know it as the Red Moon.
In the Northern Hemisphere the August moon signifies that Earth’s bounty is fully matured and ready for harvest. Wiccans and Neo-Pagans therefore often refer to it as the Wort Moon. Wort is an old-fashioned term for “plant” or “herb.”
My favorite Moon legend is the story “Moon Waters” which originates from Colombia.
Many, many years ago there lived a man named Bochica who was highly honored among his people. Bochica was a very wise man and taught his people how to build sturdy homes to protect them from harsh weather, and how to plant fields and nurture them, so they would be able to reap the crops to sustain them until the next harvest.

A popular question psychics are often asked is about finding one’s soulmate. During readings many clients want to know if someone is their soulmate, or when they will meet their soulmate. Some also believe they married their soulmate, until their spouse left them for someone else. How could that happen?
From a spiritual perspective, a soulmate is simply a person that you have a past life connection with. That person may have been your husband, wife, child, parent, friend or even foe in a previous life. When you cross paths in this lifetime, there is an immediate connection, as if you have known them all your life. Read the rest of this entry »
I thought it might be fun to share some little known facts about myself with my clients, so you could get to know me a little better. I have also found that personal transparency is a good thing, because it helps people relate to us better. It helps our clients to see us as real people, and not someone who should be placed on a pedestal.
I recently watched a video where Doreen Virtue talks about an ex-husband who was possessive and emotionally abusive. I also read that Dr. Christiane Northrup used to be obsessed with having the perfect mate. What do these two women have in common? The ability to be bold, daring and transparent about their personal spiritual journey. Read the rest of this entry »
One of the hardest things that we will ever have to do is recover from a broken heart after a relationship break-up. We don’t want to be without the person we love; it hurts to say their name, or to think about them. And sometimes it is hard to even breathe.
When a relationship fails we need to go and heal. This is a time to be around people who care about us. The worst thing that we can do is to harden our hearts, and build a wall that no one can touch. All that this will do, is stop us from growing and learning more about ourselves – to know who we are and learning how to love ourselves again.
We are not to give up on future relationships, that will not serve us in the long run. We need to be able to feel again, but it takes time. Everyone has to go through their own grieving process, because no one really knows just how much you are really hurting. With time you will get there. Read the rest of this entry »
New research from UC Berkeley and Northwestern University revealed that the negative behavior of some couples during conflicts can causes physical symptoms. The study specifically revealed that outbursts of anger may predict cardiovascular health problems later in life.
This isn’t anything many of us didn’t already know. The spiritual community has always known that emotions are linked to health, and that our behaviors today can predict the development of negative outcomes in our future. The way you argue or fight will directly result in manifesting in your body, either immediately or over time. Read the rest of this entry »
I have heard disturbing stories of metaphysical gurus and spiritual teachers sexually exploiting their followers or people under their care. This raises questions around the ethics of being in a helping profession, and also how to be on the receiving end of such help or support. Is the spiritual community paying enough attention to red flags and boundaries?
When do we set boundaries? One does not want to be too paranoid, however waiting too long might send the wrong message, like “your behavior is okay.” We want the help, but sometimes the price we are asked to pay is not so clear. I shall explore the intricacies, the dance, of this aspect of a helping relationship through the narrative below. Read the rest of this entry »
Recently, I attended a Toastmasters meeting where a gentleman was delivering his first speech to this specific group – an ice breaker to have us get acquainted with him. Instead of the typical short autobiographical introduction this speaker chose to give us an overview of his philosophy of life.
He told his audience that he sees himself entering a new phase of his life right now. He spoke about how important it is to get to know yourself and to take care of yourself first and foremost, and to always live in the moment.
After the speech and applause, the toastmaster reflected briefly on what the talk meant to him as he had listened. He said it reminded him of a mentor who had once, many years ago, said to him, “Compare… and despair”. If in life you are constantly comparing yourself to others, or comparing what you have with what others have, or what you feel you lack, or need to achieve, then all that will do is bring yourself unnecessary despair.
