In the sales and marketing field they often talk of ‘location, location, location’ (no matter how good your product or service is, how successful you are often comes down to location). Perhaps in our communication with others we should think of context, context, and context?
We have entered a period of time in the world that communication is misconstrued, even fake and has more opportunities to be interpreted as confrontational, biased, and not politically correct. On top of that put an individual’s personal style of communication – introvert, extrovert, analytical, emotional subjective and all the other styles, and the matter becomes more thorny.
Then, add even another layer, such as email and social media, which does not involve the other person being face-to-face. Now communication becomes even more complex, because body language and the human expression energetically is not a resource available to us to can pick up on the subtle options for interpretation. We will initially respond to the email from our frame of reference, and our reference alone, which is biased by our experiences. Read the rest of this entry »
A message I just received from a friend and colleague, prompted me to write this blog. In a previous message to her, I had mentioned how my partner and I hadn’t quite nailed our niche place to settle, even after a major cross continent move over two years ago. She replied that over the past two years she has come to the conclusion that, despite her deep spiritual beliefs, the world has gone crazy. She is battling to find a reason why she is here, after all of her struggles and heartache.
So many spiritual teachings, including those found in A Course In Miracles, speak of how everything is just an illusion. How do we know what is real? How often have we have stopped to consider this? Being exposed to so much of what is going on around us, not just locally, but globally through social and other media, makes us question all the more. It makes it challenging to still feel like we are able to make a difference in the life of another human being or animal in this day and age. Read the rest of this entry »
Peace is only attainable from within. Many souls go through life chasing what they think is the elusive dream of peace. They are searching outside themselves for things or people that will bring calm and balance into their lives.
Stop, look inside, there is no person and no material object that will bring you the peace which you seek. Take some time to understand that if you have a discontented soul, no outside source will heal that wound. It has taken me years to understand this concept myself. Empaths have an especially hard time reconciling with the outside world – feeling deeply can be both a super power and ones Achilles heel.
Healing your soul and becoming at peace with yourself is the most important journey you will ever embark on. It means being honest with yourself and not trying to be with or agree with others, when your very own soul is screaming no. Listen, release, accept, and be. Read the rest of this entry »
Ancestor worship is a wide-spread belief system, in both primitive and sophisticated cultures. Ancestral healing unfortunately gets very little attention these days, even though some of our patterns and energy imbalances may well stem from our genetic pool.
My first exposure to the concept of communicating with our Ancestors occurred many years ago, during initiation into the Southern African culture of divining and healing. During my training to become a Sangoma*, in a remote area in Southern Africa, time was always put aside for offering prayers to, and for consulting with the Ancestors. My mentor taught me how the Ancestor energies affected their still living relatives, and how, in most African cultures, they are seen as being our link to the spirit world.

The fear of missing out, or FOMO, can cause a constant obsession with anything, and everything – whether it’s work, the news, or social media. And it can burn us out – physically, mentally and emotionally. It can actually compromise our adrenals, stress us out, scatter us mentally, and emotionally cause sadness, or even depression. We were not designed to live this way.
If we don’t unplug, take timeouts during our day, have an entire day of restoring ourselves, or actually take a vacation to unplug, we lose perspective of the great mystery that is life. We also sacrifice our freedom.
The most important spiritual benefit of taking time out is that our intuition becomes sharper. We don’t miss out on the messages our Guides, Angels, our Loved Ones on the other side, and the Divine may have for us. Yes, we have asked for their help, but for them it’s like t getting a busy signal on a phone line. They can’t get their message through to us. Read the rest of this entry »
Yes, what you expect you attract into your life. When you are told by parents, friends, peers, and most important of all by self-talk, that you are not good enough, smart enough, attractive enough, or can’t ever do anything right, and you choose to believe it, then it will be so. Over and over again, this reinforcement to the subconscious mind will ultimately manifest as your truth.
The subconscious mind believes all that it hears as truth. The self-talk and doubt is also believed as truth. The subconscious mind is like a child, willing and ready to accept all input, especially if it receives the same messages repeatedly. Read the rest of this entry »
Yet, with the trail of live commentary on the Internet and the feedback system on websites, a lot of fraud has been prevented and eliminated in recent years. Most of our clients usually come back to us, because we have a history and reputation for accuracy.
The realm of phone psychics is a deep world of intelligent, successful and curious women who love to talk, but often I have found them to be the most insightful friends and teachers I have had the pleasure to engage with. When we establish a relationship with a client we begin a mutual spiritual journey and an experience in trust. Read the rest of this entry »
During these difficult times, it is necessary to understand what it really means to gently reinforce messages of encouragement. Messages of encouragement don’t have to be over the top or fabulous. Many people do every day things that are small but amazing, and don’t have to be extraordinary to make for extraordinary change.
Every day is a struggle between the good forces and the bad. Massive forces of good abound, but the mainstream media mostly only presents the negative, as the survival instinct of humanity always looks for this aspect first, and this is the stronger point of sale. Yet, the present is also a time when people are finally utterly inspired, purely through the modalities and technology we have, the communications we have, to really impart change through discussion and discourse, and to really act on it.
