Delay is sometimes more important than we realize. We often berate ourselves for not doing something on time, perhaps it’s not going to visit someone, or not picking up the telephone to make a call to someone who might feel better just knowing that we care, but there are always reasons for delays.
Very often we can’t see it, but there’s a plan at work in our lives and the lives of every individual on this planet. When we try to force things to happen, they often don’t do the good that we anticipated they would. This is because there is a perfect time for everything, and in our eagerness to think that we’re important we can ignore subtle clues that the universe is giving us. Think back on your life. Very often, when you have kept postponing doing something, or something hasn’t happened in what you might have considered to be the ‘right’ time, it has worked out perfectly anyway! In fact, probably more perfectly than you could have imagined. Read the rest of this entry »
Early in life I looked for comfort in nature. As a rejected only child (my parents wanted six sons), I was often wandering on my own in nature’s garden. Long-term friendships did not exist, because my dad was in the military. We moved as much as seven times in nine months. Nature was my trusted playmate and my elder teacher.
My strong religious upbringing gave me cause to read a great deal, but dual faiths in one household sent me mixed messages, so I questioned everything related to the patriarchal faiths of my parents. Read the rest of this entry »
Let me set the record straight right away: I am a dog person, not a cat person. Now, if there is anyone who does not understand that statement, clearly you are neither. That hard line of animal preferences between dogs and cats makes it clear that my opinion about cats carries a lot more weight when I say that cats are extremely psychic.
I have observed cats from afar my entire life. Not that I have not shared my life with cats. I have. It seems that anyone I have deeply loved felt an equal attraction to me as to a cat. I have also taken in cats and raised them for decades longer than any animal might expect to live in a domestic situation. However, like any other pet owner on the planet, you can care for a cat, but you cannot own a cat. A cat owns itself. No human or other animal can own a cat. Read the rest of this entry »
Many people desire to have a mystic experience. They wish they could see an angel, an apparition, have a vision or hear the voice of the Divine. Many people consider other individuals who have seen or heard such things as being very lucky. But luck has nothing to do with it; nor does being a saint or a strict religious person.
The key to having a mystic experience lies in taking the time to connect with the Divine in the silence of your own soul, or meditating on spiritual things. We have to connect with Spirit in order for Spirit to connect with us; and then we have to get out of our own way. Read the rest of this entry »
Native Americans first called horses “Medicine Dogs.” There was no word at the time for these strange animals that seemed to heal with just energy. Today all horse aficionados know all too well how easily these animals heal.
As an equine therapist, I have seen so many children and adults with disabilities, who often appear very uncoordinated on land, look perfectly graceful when they are on the back of a horse. I have also observed terrified children becoming calm within just a few seconds of touching a horse. Horses really are strong animal medicine.
They say that every horse deserves the love of a young girl. I also think that every child deserves to have a horse as a friend. These giant animals have a sixth sense about children. It is like a switch is flipped when a horse and child meet. Horses run in herds, and therefore, being alone is terrifying to them. However, the majority of them will ignore their own fears when carrying a child. Read the rest of this entry »
It is energy, not words that we share with dogs. Before I even knew that I was distracted, one look at Tsagi, a wolf-Queensland Heeler mix, would make me realize that I was not well-grounded. Dogs feel our energy so much better than we do.
Tsagi died Christmas Day 2012, but he is still here with me. Even though he was not my dog, I was a part of his life. He lived in the apartment attached to my home. In fact, he slept over my head in the upstairs apartment, which is on the second floor over my bedroom. I can still hear him at night moving about on the floor to get his bed ‘just right’ before drifting off to sleep. I can still feel him watching the front gate of the ranch from the patio on that second floor. Read the rest of this entry »
I decided to write a blog about psychic protection, because so many clients ask how to best shield themselves from negative influences. When I speak with people about psychic protection, I usually find that they generally either don’t understand its importance, or they need to better understand how we come under the influence of negative forces.
You may remember from my recent blog, entitled You Actually Have Two Bodies, that we each have an astral body that resides on the astral plane, which is located above the physical plane on which our physical bodies function. The two bodies interact with each other through electromagnetism – the positive and masculine energy of the Sun and the negative more receptive or feminine energy of the Moon.
The astral body is really the ‘soul’. It contains the sum total of a person’s experiences as well as the manner in which they have assimilated these experiences. Psychologists often refer to the ‘unconscious mind’. This is, in effect, the astral mind, which we can access through visualization, meditation, and hypnosis. Read the rest of this entry »
Good morning fellow seekers and believers. A warm welcome also to ye of little faith. It is indeed a blessing to greet you at the dawn of yet another perfect Solstice day in this miraculous annual progression of human history. It is December 21st, 2012 and it is exactly 11:11 GMT, the official time of the Solstice. Take a deep breath, you are indeed still alive!
If you are one of the more adventurous and spirited among us, you may very well find yourself today on a Mayan galactic alignment cruise or magical pilgrimage to the Chichen Itza in the Mexican state of Yucatan, or at Stonehenge in the United Kingdom, waiting for the first light to break on the horizon. I can only imagine how much fun you must be having! Read the rest of this entry »
