If you have been practicing meditation, opening your chakras and playing guessing games to develop your intuition, you may have started seeing and hearing things that you have questions about. Hopefully, you are also keeping a journal and writing down anything that seems to ‘pop’ into your mind while meditating. Often these are messages from your spirit guides.
As you develop psychically, you usually start to become aware of a presence or maybe multiple presences around you while you meditate. You may catch glimpses of faces, usually benevolent and smiling, while your eyes are closed. Or you may hear a voice, or chorus of voices, usually saying loving things or singing. You can often also feel a connection to all living things in the world, and to the air, the water, and the earth. Perhaps you feel the presence of a greater intelligence that is all around, and within and connected to all things in life. Read the rest of this entry »
Several years ago I was gifted my spirit name, Soaring Free, by one of my personal spirit guides of Native American decent. I have been reflecting on this for the past few weeks, as I am entering a new phase of my spirituality and higher consciousness.
Back In 2004, I had crossed a personal line in my life where self-esteem, confidence, happiness and self-love were basically non-existent. When I speak to my clients about the struggles or confusion they face on their life path and spiritual journey, or in their careers or relationships, I completely understand. I have been there myself, and I have experienced more than most. Fortunately, I have been able to overcome those challenges and I now know that anyone can overcome adversity.

When I think of the word love I think of my two cats. I have two cats and love them dearly. Most of the people I know also own cats, but we all seem to agree that we don’t really own our cats… our cats own us. We also agree that our lives are better, sweeter and more peaceful with our sweet precious cats. I feel a home isn’t truly a home unless there is a cat that dwells in it.
Cats are highly intuitive and very sensitive. They sense energy and can pick up on static electricity, ultrasonic sounds and changes in vibration. The cats I have lived with over the years always informed me in their own unique way of impending earthquakes, or some form of extreme weather that was approaching. Read the rest of this entry »
In recent years there has been an avid interest in shamanism. A myriad of books, seminars and extensive training programs around the world reveal a keen exploration of indigenous cultures and their connection with Nature, their healing techniques (such as soul retrieval) and the role of power animals or totems.
Shamanism, in its classical sense, comes from the regions of Siberia and Central Asia and the term ‘shaman’ originates from the Tungusic word saman (masculine) or samana (feminine). The term shaman has been interchanged with ‘medicine man’, ‘sorcerer’, and ‘magician’ – but a shaman is so much more. The shaman is traditionally a central figure in the community: mystic, poet, healer, communicator with the unseen realm and psychopomp (leader of souls). Read the rest of this entry »
Today’s Full Moon has many names. It is known as the Lenten Moon, Chaste Moon, Crow Moon, Crust Moon, Sap Moon, The Big Famine Moon, and Worm Moon, among many other names originating from various cultures and belief systems.
March 20th was the Spring Equinox, the first day of spring. It is traditionally the day many Pagans celebrate the rebirth of the Earth. Earth is thawing and loosening itself from the cold grip of winter. New life will soon emerge and the land will grow green and fertile. What will develop into the ripened fruits of summer and autumn is still young and fresh. In March we see the fleeting virtue of innocence, the potential of the growth to come, while honoring the fleeting virtue of innocence.
Lent is a major religious observance of many Christian denominations. It begins on Ash Wednesday and covers a period of approximately six weeks before Easter Day. Its tradition is not much different from other traditions and cultures, which also view this very early spring moon as a time for repentance, giving alms to the poor, atonement and self-denial.

We enjoyed the Sacred Waterfall so much that we decided to go back a second time. It was a most amazing experience as we saw the legendary Blue Butterfly numerous times on this second trip. I also brought all the photos and the healing list along with me for a sacred waterfall healing.
The day prior we asked the Blue Butterfly, together as a group, to come and greet us. During our opening prayer, before walking down to the sacred site of the waterfall, we once again invited the Blue Butterfly to join us on this healing journey. Later, as I was walking down the path leading the group, I had the first sighting of the blue butterfly! He appeared out of nowhere and I turned around to tell the group, but sadly he flew away without anyone else seeing it. Read the rest of this entry »
There is enormous power in prayer. There is enormous power in thought and intention. The ways in which you pray, think and focus are reflected in your physical, everyday life. Combining the spiritual and the mundane into your present moment can enrich your soul and enhance the quality of your life.
The ways of doing this are endless, but one way I enjoy is to create a personal altar. You can make an altar anywhere and place anything on it, as long as it represents the quality you want to concentrate on and develop. Creating an altar is very personal, because it is the way for us to connect with our spirit and align ourselves with our intentions. It helps to remind us of these things even in the midst of a busy day. Read the rest of this entry »
We all have spirit guides. Even the uninitiated may feel a guardian angel or a benevolent presence around them from time to time. This is actually them unknowingly sensing their spirit guide. For the spiritually awakened person this is one of the first questions they might ask, when embarking on their new spiritual path: “Who is my Spirit Guide?” The answer to that question is often very personal.
Your spirit guide can take many forms, but it is always a positive energy in your life. When asking the question, “Who are my guides and where do they come from,” the answer will reveal itself once you have contacted your own individual Spirit Guide. Our guides can come from various dimensions, past lives and even the present. More often than not you will have more than one Spirit Guide throughout your lifetime. Read the rest of this entry »
