According to folk-lore, there is a trio of female archetypes, those being the Mother, the Maiden and the Crone – the latter often being referred to as a Witch or Wise Woman. Indeed, it is in the last and final stage, i.e. post menopause, that us ladies reach our spiritual peak.
In fact, the Crone side of ourselves is, incidentally, our priestess, healer and internal warrior, should we fully embrace it. The need for direction and guidance from others is no longer required. In short, we start to live life on our terms – without the need to apologize for doing so. Read the rest of this entry »
The most overlooked aspect of our Christmas spirit is the giving, especially fruit. And for each fruit there is a symbol as an emblem of divinity or purity, as an anchor to our Earth, honoring our agricultural and farming heritage. In parts of Europe, for example, St. Nicholas would put tangerines into the homes of children to announce the arrival of first Advent.
The apple was used as a symbol of longevity and happiness, and youth and fertility, and thus was used in the story of Adam and Eve as the symbol of temptation. Yet, we must remember that in this infamous story, the snake that tempted Adam and Eve, was the bringer of knowledge and this is the age old lore that presents itself again and again throughout history. Not many people know that it was the Tree of Knowledge, not the apple (or sexuality) that tempted them. And in some ancient texts, they were freed by this knowledge. Read the rest of this entry »

Are you feeling stuck making all the wrong choices and decisions? Are you repeating the same make mistakes? A study at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences analyzed the processes that occur before the human brain makes a decision. In this study, participants were asked to press a button with their left, or right hand. They were able to do this at whatever moment they decided, however, they were asked to remember the specific time they recognized making their decision and to relay that information to the researchers.
By observing the participant’s brain scanner, it was discovered that the researchers knew the participant’s decision seven seconds before the participant knew, based on observing electrical signals within the participant’s brain. This is important information, because it validates how much our subconscious minds are making decisions without us fully being aware of the choices we are making. Read the rest of this entry »
There is an ancient belief system that everything can be seen in one’s face. Your emotional state, your physical state, warnings, strengths and weaknesses. I have been studying this philosophy for many years and have found it to be very helpful when observing my own physical well-being, but also that of my clients and students.
For instance, your circulation can be observed in the forehead and the nervous system in the pupils, while the kidneys can be seen under your eyes. The heart is at the tip of the nose, the sexual organs above the upper lip and the stomach is on the upper lip.
The first 28 days after conception is the time when the top portion of the embryo’s face develops. If drugs or medications are taken by the mother during this time, it can cause a problem throughout the person’s life span. This is also the time that birth marks are formed. Often birth marks can be related to trauma and injury from past lives, but they can also be newly formed from the intake of foods and toxins from the mother. Read the rest of this entry »
I have a friend that is going through the challenging process of watching her aging mom dwindle away. Her mother is losing her memory and the ability to take care of herself the way she used to. So, I try to help when I can. For most of us it’s an issue that we will all most likely face one day.
The spiritual connection to our parents is often a relationship with a history that is very complex. Not everyone has a wonderful, loving relationship with their parents, right? Those of us who do, should never take it for granted. We are truly blessed. Read the rest of this entry »
There is a unique psychic connection between a mother and a child. I have always intuitively knows this to be true, before I knew that scientific evidence confirmed this. Telepathic and empathic connection between mother and child is a phenomenon as old as time. After all, the first sound you hear is your mother’s heartbeat while you are in the womb.
My mother would always know if something was wrong with me, and I knew if something was the matter with her. One day I had a bad feeling about my mom’s well-being and I called her. When I could not reach her, I knew for sure something was seriously wrong. It turned out she had been rushed to the hospital earlier that day.
We were always in-tune with each other on a psychic level, even on the day she passed away. She came to me in a dream and handed me a rose. I instantly new she had passed when I woke up. That rose she gave me in the dream was symbolic of something special being taken away from me. Read the rest of this entry »
Some refer to this as the ‘vibes’ we get from people, animals, places or things. Have you ever walked into a house and gotten great vibes, or maybe not such great vibes?
The concept of energy forms an integral part of our daily lives. We speak of the energy of dancers, athletes, supernova, and electricity. We soak up the Sun’s rays and it gives us energy. Deepak Chopra talks about it. We use energy to work, relax, cook and travel.
We can’t see energy but we can feel it on both conscious and subconscious levels, including psychically. We can see the amazing effects of it. We can see spaceships launch, lights go on, the effects of our investment in time and energy to get things done, and the lack of it when we’re feeling confused, depressed or under the weather.
