So, by now, if you are a regular reader of my blogs, you’ve become acquainted with my bipolar mom who is great 75% of the time. You would also know that I am a psychic reader of great faith, and a couple months ago I wrote blogs about both my mom, as well as my plan to manifest a new car for myself. I am pleased to share with you, dear reader, that I have achieved success!
But how, you say. What happened, you ask. I don’t know how it happened, but it did.
While I love my mom tremendously, when she takes a ride on the bipolar train, I step back for a week or two and let her work through it. So, it just was the case a month or so after I wrote that blog, she went on a tear again and I backed way up. I had no choice, because you cannot reason with the unreasonable, and as anyone knows who is familiar with the highs and lows that mental disorders can bring, sometimes it is best to live to fight another day. Always pick your battles carefully. Read the rest of this entry »
You’ve reached a point in your life where you have thought about having children. Chances are, you have already passed other milestones in your life, such as finishing your career and getting married, and you see having children as the next logical step.
Forget the fact that children are expensive. Keep in mind how much you make at your career per year. Children cost around $250,000 to raise over a lifetime. Divide that by 18 years and you get $13,888.88 per child per year.
It adds up pretty quickly if you have more than just one child, and can quickly put a strain on your already fragile finances. With the current divorce rate at around 50%, never assume that you and your spouse will be together forever to help split the expenses. Read the rest of this entry »
From 1979 to 1992, I had a mentor who taught me about karma. She made it clear that I was not going to ever find a place to hide from my behavior. My father must have had the same lessons when he was growing up, because he told me the same thing.
I cannot do certain things that are not in line with “Right Thought” or “Right Action.” I simply cannot overcome that early training. Actually, I do not want to, yet, I see so many who seem fine with “cutting corners.”
Sometimes, I feel like I am alone. It is as though I am swimming all alone in the ocean or running on a deserted road. I honestly have been looking for others who were raised like I was raised, those who believe what I believe, among the young and restless, as well as the old and angry. Too often I ask. “Where are they who honor karma?” Read the rest of this entry »
Every day we are bombarded with different types of situations and issues to deal with. We come into contact with different people from all walks of life. Truth is, we don’t know what path they have taken to get where they are at, or what prices they may have paid in order to do so. When conflict arises with people, you must always keep that in mind.
I am reminded of a story I read in the news, of a man who slapped a crying toddler on a plane. He ended up getting arrested for it, but that’s not the point. He was flying to Atlanta to take his only child off life support. Does that excuse his actions? No. It does however explain why his nerves would be more frayed than usual.

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 »
A middle-aged woman, Susan, recently came to my rooms for a reading. Susan is well-presented and well-spoken, and has an air of grace about her. Judging by appearances she seemed like any other lady in this age bracket, and when she walked through the door I was none the wiser to what she was seeking from the reading that day.
The first card that came up for her is a beautiful peacock, with lots of color and glamor. I was told through my channeling that this is how Susan presents herself, very distinguished, beautiful and majestic, and her partner has always told her how beautiful she is. However, I was also hearing that her partner is no longer able to communicate this to her, and as I passed on this message I heard a voice come into the reading – a dignified male voice.

Ironically, there was a psychic lady who lived about four miles down the road who told her she was going to meet someone who lives nearby, that he also does psychic readings and that we were going to get married. She told her several other things too. She said this man you will meet went to the same high school, you have a past work connection with his family and he will one day help your sister in a time of need.
A year after we got married, we discovered that my wife used to work for my cousin Charley and that her brother is the supervisor at the same workplace. So, later that night I called my cousin and he confirmed all of it for us. Read the rest of this entry »
We all know people who have come in and out of our lives at just the perfect time to say just the right thing at just the right time. Some of these wonderful people may have stayed in our lives, or perhaps left just as quickly as they came.
I have had several experiences with Earth Angels, but looking back maybe they were not of this earth at all. When I think of Earth Angels, I think of one person in particular and that is my Mother. My mother has taught me many things that has helped me in my life. She has taught me the fruits of the Spirit by applying them in her life.
So, with this blog post I simply wish to thank my mother for being present in my life. Read the rest of this entry »
