Are We There Yet?

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comAre we there yet? It’s okay to ask. The answer, however, should always be no. If we become preoccupied with destination, we lose sight of the purpose of the journey in the first place. When we honor the journey, we are able to keep on the path of forward motion.

Life itself is the journey. We learn the hard lessons, and finally understand that it’s a never-ending process. Often things occur in the guise of mistakes, failures, misunderstandings, hurts. But in truth, not learning from these events is the only failure. And if you don’t learn it the first time, it is highly likely the lesson will repeat itself, over and over again, until you actually do learn it.

When our behavior and actions change, we convert what we have learned into wisdom. For some people the process is a lifelong quest, while others utilize what they have learned and it moves them along quickly. Some people need to go deeper within themselves to make progress.

It is always good to ask if we are there yet. Especially at the beginning of every journey, or when the learned lessons tell us there is more work to be done – inner work to get to the very core of our being. For some people inner work can be very frightening, as many of us deeply suppress the things that we don’t want to deal with. But to complete the journey we must peel away the layers, like peeling an onion.

You Can Stop Smoking With Hypnotherapy

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comThere is currently much talk about the possibility of another cigarette tax increase in my state. The hardcore smokers are of course adamantly opposed. It’s going to cost them a lot more money to sustain their habit. The reasoning behind the proposed increase is that the smokers are costing everyone else more money, in terms long-term health care, so why not put the burden on the smokers through the cost of cigarettes.

Fortunately, this shift in public perception is inspiring more smokers to stop. More people are seeking hypnotherapy as a means to help them stop. As a hypnotherapist, I use the word stop and not quit, because quitting implies giving something up, while stopping means ending a dreadful habit and improving one’s life and long-term health.

Many doctors, researchers and hypnotists will tell you that hypnotherapy is the most successful way to stop smoking cigarettes. Reports state that up to 80% of people who use hypnosis actually stop, and about 50% or more remain non-smokers after one year. That’s double or more compared to any other method, such as using a nicotine patch or medication.

The potential side-effects of the other methods are also not pleasant and may include headaches, dizziness, lightheadedness, drowsiness, stomach upset, nausea, breathing difficulties, chest pain, irregular heartbeat, nervousness, anxiety, and tremors. With hypnotherapy, the only ‘side-effects’ are improved sleep, improved well-being, decreased stress, less pain, better quality of life, and increased self-esteem and self-confidence!

Time To Review Your Goals For The Year

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comWe are reaching the midpoint of this year. As you look at our desires and intentions from the beginning of the year, life might have changed, and so have you, or not. Sometimes we start out with several new year’s resolutions (at least I know I do). Where are you now with those changes and intentions you planned at the beginning of the year… and are some adjustments possibly required?

When working with clients, who want to make changes, we look together at different areas of their life: career, relationships, self-care, finances, creativity, limiting beliefs, and addiction. We then find the one aspect that needs to be prioritized.

Focusing on too many things can become very distracting, and quite honestly overwhelming. I have found the most success comes from making a list of all the things we desire to change or improve, and then to choose one to start with, which we feel can make the most difference and be personally satisfying.

It’s not that the other areas are not worked on during the year. But by focusing on one area, it magically and positively touches the other areas of our lives. One thing can change everything else. And there is no good in beating ourselves up over where we are, if it’s not where we want to be. The door to freedom is through forgiveness and loving ourselves.

When Enough Is Enough

87387574rRecently, I have had some life experiences which changed my view on how to handle certain situations. Maybe its Uranus’s influence, moving into Taurus recently, that has prompted my sudden shift in behavior and attitude? Or maybe, enough has just finally become enough.

While I love helping people and doing readings, I am also a fixed sign and an Earth element, which means I flourish in endeavors focused on concrete things, such as real estate. So, it’s no surprise that aside from doing psychic mediumship work, I also own and manage multiple rental properties.

Late last year, one of my tenants was going through a tough time. So, I offered to help her by doing a pro bono reading for them. Later, I was delighted when I received feedback that things were getting better for them, and that things were unfolding as I had predicted.

A couple of weeks ago, I received news that they had decided to act on the advice given in the reading, and were now moving out in June. While I was saddened to see them leave, I was somewhat relieved that I could now find more stable tenants for that property. In the same sentence, she asked if I minded doing another reading for them both, before they left the property. I gladly agreed and scheduled the reading for the next day.

After the reading was again done free of charge, they proceeded to inform me of their intentions to not honor the terms on their lease! With each sentence they spoke, the information became more and more dreadful. I’m sure by the time they had finished, my mouth was a gaping hole. I was in complete shock over what they had told me.

Change Your World With The Butterfly Effect

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comSimply defined, the Butterfly Effect is the phenomenon where a small, localized change in one part of a complex system can have large effects elsewhere, like an escalating ripple effect. The idea came to be known as such when a meteorology professor, Edward Lorenz, suggested that the flutter of just one butterfly’s wings could ultimately cause a tornado on the other side of the planet.

We all have beautiful opportunities to introduce the positive in our lives. We can do this by shifting our energy around with regards how we choose to view a particular person or situation. In this way our thoughts and actions can act as those butterfly wings that shifts and effects people, events, and even environments throughout the world.

It’s A Wonderful Life, a 1946 American Christmas fantasy film, demonstrates how every man’s life touches many other lives, and without the presence and actions of those other people, so many things might be different. The point is, we often have no idea how significantly our lives affect others. When we think back over our own life experiences, and the experiences of others, it often becomes clear how we have all been touched by the so-called Butterfly Effect.

The Easter Angel And The Golden Ticket

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comIt was around Easter, one year in the early 1970s, when I had a profound angel encounter. I was playing outdoors with many other children my age. We were eagerly running through a large open field looking for Easter eggs.

Well, they were not exactly real eggs. If you are from my generation, you might remember those plastic eggs that would break open to reveal inside them candy, colorful stickers and small, cheap bracelets. Some also contained little pieces of paper with trivia or inspirational messages. I remember thinking the words on the paper were more valuable to me than the tiny Tootsie Rolls or Hershey Bars.

On this occasion, I soon had a full basket and was sitting on the ground opening up my eggs and stuffing my goodies in the plastic bag we were all given. We were to return the eggs, so they could be recycled.

There was a very angelic looking women at the Easter egg hunt. She was helping some of the children find their eggs. Whenever they seemed to be having a difficult time, she would go to them and say something encouraging, or would help to cheer them up in some way. I kept my eye on her since we arrived, as she stood out from everyone else.

Later, while standing in line to return my empty eggs, she knelt down in front of me and asked, “What did you get?” I opened my bag and showed her all the candy and goodies. Then I lifted my hand and said, “This piece of paper is my favorite.” It was a golden slip of paper which read: It is wise to not put all your time, energy and love in one basket.

Reclaiming Your Power When A Relationship Ends

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comOne of the main reasons it is so painful to release someone when a relationship ends, is because we have usually invested so much of our time and energy in our connection with that person. In essence, what we are truly missing when we mourn a relationship are parts of our self that we have given away. What we are mourning is the loss of our hopes and dreams, not merely the presence of the person who is no longer in our life.

If this is something you are currently struggling with, I recommend the following ritual designed to help you reclaim your power after a relationship break-up, so that you can restore your inner wholeness and resume your search for true and enduring love.

Supplies

  • 3 votive candles: 1 blue, 1 green, 1 yellow
  • 1 aqua marine or clear quartz crystal
  • rain or sage incense wand
  • small mirror
  • 3 copper pennies
  • 2 tbsp of fresh or dried mint in a small bowl
  • 2 tbsp sea salt
