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.

Today’s full moon on July 19th is traditionally known as the Full Mead Moon in Germany.
Long, long ago, God of wisdom, poetry and war, Odin, made a decision to send a younger God, Mani, to the skies. Mani was a very handsome God and his duty was to drive the chariot and fill the dark night skies with light.
Odin collected all things wasted on Earth and sent them with Mani. He collected misspent time and broken vows, abandoned friends and squandered wealth.
Every night Mani’s chariot was filled to the brim with unanswered prayers and wasted talent, unfulfilled promises and favors. He also carried the hearts of the ones who did not love, and the memories of the ones who did not care to remember.
Mani took two children with him too, a blonde boy named Hyuki, and his sister called Bil. But this was not Odin’s original plan. Read the rest of this entry »
In a very simple sense, the Law of Attraction means that we receive back what we put out. If we send specifically positive imagery and thoughts out into the Universe (which is actually a multi-dimensional Multiverse) they shall return to us.
The opposite is also true. Literally anything we want to achieve is possible, if we set our minds and spirits to the task. Why are so many of us stuck in the idea that we must simply accept what we have?
Largely, it is conditioning. We are taught as children to “be grateful” and that good children are seen, and not heard. As adults, however, we have the ability to reprogram our thinking and make these magical possibilities come true. It isn’t just about “wishful thinking,” although this does play a part!

When I would lament life’s ups and downs, a good friend use to say to me, “Amy, it is what it is.” I hated that particular saying! It wasn’t until I was older, and maybe a little wiser, than I came understand its full meaning.
Relationships of any kind, whether that be romantic, familial, friendship, co-worker or whatever, can be a great teacher. I recently discovered a relationship to be such a case in my life.
A very dear friend of mine has been abusing alcohol to the point of addiction. I seems as if this person is on a path to self-destruction, as if she no longer wants to live. I have never seen someone drink so much in a short period of time as I have witnessed with this particular friend. Her family has tried to reason with her as well, but to no avail. We are all at the end of our ropes! Read the rest of this entry »
As an intuitive, I do my best to gauge how things are unfolding in a given situation. I gain insight from Spirit about how things are unfolding, based on the momentum of a situation. That being said, I do not believe that we are fated into anything in this life, nor is our future static. I do my best to stay away from ‘fortune telling’ language, because it often takes away from the innate power of our own actions.
Every focused intention is a cause that will lead us to an effect. So, the best we can do in our lives is to ascertain what type of action creates an ideal circumstance. In my experience loving causes as a rule create the ideal circumstances and open up the highest path for the individual.
In the esoteric Christian tradition it is stated that, “God is Love.” So, to align with the will of Love is in essence aligning with the Creative Force of the Universe. It is certainly true that there is a higher effect when we are able to align with the will of Love. The challenging part is to ascertain Love’s will. Read the rest of this entry »
Furthermore, confidence is key to whatever you may intend for your day. When we have that confidence, we are more likely to be able to attract those intentions to us more easily. We are able to feel what we want, become deliberate creators and allow what we desire to come into our lives.
When I remember to start with intention and a prayer of asking how can I serve today, my day goes way better and I can stay in a place of feeling centered and calm. I am then able to receive the blessings and abundance that comes with the day. Read the rest of this entry »
Nevertheless, manifesting is a metaphysical art that can be mastered by all people. You do not need to be part of a select group or an adept in any way, shape or form. Anyone can put this inherent power to good use in their life.
However, before you attempt to change your life for the better by implementing the art of manifestation, there are a few things that need to be borne in mind first. Read the rest of this entry »
The vintage or retro trend is more popular than ever and has more people buying used clothing and household items, as well as antiques. But one does not usually think about the metaphysical energies that may be attached these old clothes, jewelry and pieces of furniture.
Believe it or not, ghosts sometimes do follow a beloved object purchased from an estate sale. A flea market or thrift store may be selling objects that carry the negative energy of bad relationships. Pawn shops may have beautiful jewelry for sale, but you may unknowingly pick up the grief associated with having to sell a beloved object.
Jewelry is especially problematic, and even gifts can carry negative energies. It does not matter if the jewelry was physically cleaned before you purchase it. One should spiritually cleanse every object that is second hand, to keep negative energies out of your energetic space. You can also ‘charge’ jewelry to help you with things you want to accomplish, for protection, or to attract good energies. Read the rest of this entry »
