As a professional psychic I go through many calls a day. Each and every client has a need for guidance and a light to shine on the path they are on. Some wander off their path and are confused and upset. Others have problems of the heart and soul, and reach out desperately for guidance and comfort. Some I cry with, some I laugh with. Each client is different and unique.
Certain days, at the end of a shift, I am so exhausted on a mental level. I receive information in ‘flashes’ and they come fast and furious. It’s hard sometimes to gather all the information coming through and relay it to the client. But there is a place I go to, no run to, for the serenity and comfort that helps me offer the best readings I can. That place is my rocking chair! Read the rest of this entry »
I have been practicing meditation for 34 years. Falling into a state of meditation is now a habit; I can now leave the world of conscious thought for a very short period of time and become refreshed. If I lie down, or even sit in the right mindset, I find myself transported to a place of absolute inner peace.
Meditation is not a religious activity; it is instead a listening activity. I was taught to let go of all thought. “No mind,” is what my Renzi Zen Buddhist teacher called the practice. It has become a ‘letting go’ of the thousands of thoughts passing through my brain every day. We have all heard the saying, “Let go and let God.” I often wonder how any of us can even hear God.

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 »
When we’ve had relationships with people, these cords extend from our chakras or energy centers to those of the other person. So, you can imagine the amount of emotions we can take on from someone else – more often than not ‘fear-based’ emotions. That fear can show itself as fear of abandonment, unforgiveness, co-dependency, or any other negative emotion.
Years ago, I remember reading a newspaper article shortly after the son of Dean Martin had been killed in an air crash. The famous singer said it felt like his heart was being ripped out – so real are these cords that bind us. The ripping at his heart chakra was, in fact, real, even though there was not any physical evidence of his heart being pulled from his body. Read the rest of this entry »
During my psychic readings one question pops up often: how do you keep stress and anxiety to where it is not affecting your personal or professional life.
One of my favorite techniques for stress reduction is Yoga. This form of ‘exercise’ originated in India and has greatly increased in popularity all over the world in recent years. It’s great exercise for your body, and your mind. Keeping a healthy body improves holistic health and reduces stress and anxiety in your life.
Yoga can be done just about anywhere, even in small spaces. All you need is comfortable clothing and a mat to stretch out on. Add a relaxing environment and music, and you’re set! Start slowly, working up to what is comfortable for you. This is key. Yoga can be very enjoyable and something to look forward to if it is performed with care and dedication.

All of us, in our own way, experience stress on a daily basis. At times stress is manageable and life seems to flow smoothly. At other times the storms move in and we can easily become overwhelmed.
Several techniques can be utilized to reduce stress and manage pressures:
Watch your diet
When I experience stressful events, I am more careful about food selection. I avoid caffeine and sugar. I eat more fruits and vegetables. I even avoid red meat to some extent. Read the rest of this entry »
I am sometimes asked during readings to explain what Reiki is and how it is used. Reiki is basically a Japanese form of healing using your hands to manipulate energy and remove blockages in energy flow. Reiki offer many health benefits, including stress reduction, relaxation and wellness.
Reiki reduces the tension that is caused by stress, and this can help to lower blood pressure and improve sleeping habits. It will also make you think more clearly, so better judgment is used in everyday life. Reiki promotes wholeness of your body, mind and spirit. Reiki is also a extremely good way to release toxins and help the body to be cleansed. Reiki also promotes spiritual development and emotional growth. Read the rest of this entry »
I use stones to change the mood in a room, to enhance a spell, to retain information, to direct energy, to shift patterns. The ways to use stones are as many as there are stones. You can use just one, or a combination to get just the right results. You can put them on a charm bracelet, in a bowl, on the coffee table. One time I wire-wrapped 30 of them and hung them from a foot high Yule tree in my tiny studio apartment.
While I was learning how to use stones I hit a tough time in my life. One night I decided to go out with some friends, and on my way out I grabbed a stone from the table. I didn’t know why, I didn’t ask. I just took one.
During the evening I felt what I can only describe now as a ‘shift in balance’. When I got home I was listening to my answering machine and got to a message from someone I had just disconnected from. When I counted back the time, I realized he made that call when I felt the shift, and the stone I grabbed was a star ruby, which is useful in psychic protection! Read the rest of this entry »
