Although I do not use lithomancy in my readings, I have been drawn to gems, precious stones and crystals since I was in my teenage years.
When I was in high school, I would fancy the gems in the shopping mall jewelry shops. I would save up my allowance and job money to buy a genuine sapphire ring I could afford, since it is my birthstone.
Sapphire is considered one of the most precious stones, along with ruby, emerald, and diamond. It is also very durable, second only to diamond on the Mohs hardness scale. Named after the scientist who invented it, this scale of hardness is based on the ability of one mineral to scratch another. Read the rest of this entry »
Palmistry, chiromancy, or palm reading, is one of the oldest methods of foretelling the past, present and future, by reading the lines of the hand. It is a form of divination practised all over the world. The earliest recorded evidence of this divination technique has been found in Asia, from where it spread to the rest of the world.
Each person has unique lines and shape of hand. Thus the use of fingerprinting in identifying individuals. In palmistry, the lines and shape of the hands indicate a person’s character, marriage, how many children they will have, as well as the foreboding of positive and negative life events.

So many moments are not perceived within a moment in time. We are always feeling the senses, yet we take them for granted. Of all five we can thoroughly logically not only perceive, but also re-examine and replicate, we have most definitely the sixth. Yet, little has been discussed regarding the multitudinous facets of the sixth sense.
This particular perception, which cannot be duplicated, is as unique as a person’s memory, their bias, their entire collective selves, and is not necessarily based upon the ego. It fortunately can surpass that and may not be linked to religious or spiritual aspects either. This is the unique and undiscovered sense that we cannot quantify, yet it can be classified to some extent. Read the rest of this entry »
There is a Full Moon today, traditionally also known as the Buck Moon, Thunder Moon or Hay Moon. Have you noticed that the Moon affects your moods and behavior? There have been scientific reports about the effect of the moon on human behavior, including heightened mind activity, increased visits to the emergency room, increases in violence, and people complaining about mental distress.
The frequencies of the Moon can affect our feelings, emotions and desires. The idea that a Full Moon is connected with violence, aggression, sleepwalking and general craziness is as old as time. A Full Moon is also supposed to send pregnant women into labor and make nursing home residents more agitated and unruly. Read the rest of this entry »
Our society has successfully stripped itself of most of its metaphysical marvels. Yet, magic prevails everywhere for those who still seek to find it. Despite our cynical age of scientific skepticism, techno-futurism and neo-draconian politics, the mystical and miraculous continues to endure in the hearts and minds of those who choose to believe.
I have seen evidence of this everyday magic in my work with many people all over the world, as well as upon many of my travels. I have known it in the devoted spiritual practices and manifesting projects of my clients. I have observed it in the heroic metaphysical endeavors and healing miracles of my colleagues. And I have even witnessed it at almost every birthday party I have ever attended. Yes, most of us have at some point in our lives whispered a silent wish over the candles on a cake!

Throughout time mankind has explored the ability to communicate with the gods, with nature, or with each other on a non-verbal level. It is extremely common for us to use the term intuitive. these days. It is often the explanation given by many an entrepreneur or successful decision-maker: “I just trusted my gut,” or “What I love about Mary is she is just so intuitive and makes the right decisions.”
The term psychic on the other hand, although nowadays often well known within a household, conjures up for so many outside the metaphysical community feelings of distrust, fake, absurd, not possible. Perhaps these attributes are attached because of our personal belief system that does not value or agree with the skill set. This also can impact our personal relationships if we know it is real and others judge us since we may then hide our abilities as being psychic and connected with the unseen realm or worse shut down and not continue developing them.

Natural Law is a term that is used for so many different descriptions and is actually ambiguous. It can be the law of nature; a philosophical law related to ethics and morality, or many other laws where rules are applied.
Greek philosophers, such as Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, specifically distinguished between the law of the land and the law of nature. The law of the land was specific to the cities, districts and government whereas the Law of Nature is the same everywhere.
In physics one might even say that the Law of Gravity is a Natural Law, as it exists everywhere on the planet and throughout time. Technology has advanced such that we are able to influence gravity, yet we have not changed the inherent Law of Gravity. Read the rest of this entry »
One day, a female monkey picked up a sweet potato and washed the sand and dirt off in a nearby stream. Soon after, the mother of the juvenile monkey was also washing her sweet potatoes in the stream. In this unusual case it was a youngster had taught an adult and not the other way around, as is more commonly observed.
Over the course of the next five years, one by one, several of the other monkeys of the group also picked up the habit of washing off their sweet potatoes. The exact number is unclear, but something amazing is said to have happened – as if overnight, all of the monkeys were washing their potatoes in streams, and in the sea. Even monkeys on the other islands, crossing natural barriers. Read the rest of this entry »
