You are most likely familiar with the Law of Attraction and the notion that positive or negative thought will attract likewise energies or results. In other words, you ‘get out what you put out.’ But did you know that this principle applies just as much to our love lives as our work, money, and other aspects of our lives?
When looking for a romantic partner, people tend to focus on the superficial: appearance, style of dress, social status, income level, and so on. We may say that we want a mate who is active, happy, and successful. But looking in the mirror, how much do those criteria describe us? If we are lazy, unkind, or cynical, the Law of Attraction mandates that inevitably, the same type of person will be drawn to us. Read the rest of this entry »
Last month, an old friend reconnected with me on social media. She talked quite a lot about the old days, when we lived and went to school on an island in the Canary Islands. It was fun looking back and reminiscing, as well as sharing all the things we’ve done, and the weird and wonderful places we’ve lived in and traveled to in-between.
I was quite taken back when she made a comment about how controlling my father was back then. In the past, I would have defended him, but she had a valid point. Make no mistake, I adored my father, but as years progressed the controlling behavior actually worsened. Read the rest of this entry »
If you’re dealing with a recent job loss, please know that I do empathize with you, because I’ve been there! In February 2005, I was fired from my job as a pharmacist. After dealing with the initial shock, fear, and worry, and also getting myself clean and sober in May 2005, I came to develop a plan that worked for me. I call it the Four R’s: Regroup, Reflect, Recruit, and Recover.
After you’ve experienced the disgust surrounding your situation, you need to find ways to support yourself, not only in a financial sense, but spiritually as well. Read the rest of this entry »
As your ego is in the process of transformation, you will often find yourselves in the throes of fear or depression, or unrest. When the ego feels threatened, it is like a child throwing a temper tantrum, digging its heels in even more, wanting its energy to be expressed at a louder level.

She is here to assist you. As you honor and respect her, loving her, she will become your ally, your trusted true friend and will assist you in unending ways. Read the rest of this entry »
As the months pass, we are being given more and more opportunities to decide on which side of the divide we stand – the side of the world, or the side of the Divine. I believe that September was the first apex of that decision-making on a soul level.
Our souls speak to us in many different ways, and they have many different instruments to use. Whether we like it or not, last month so many of us were being called to re-assess our relationships, our jobs, our health, our lifestyles, and, ultimately, our relationships with ourselves and with the Divine.

The bonds with your Spiritual Council are strengthening and as each and every day passes they become stronger and stronger and within this strength lies your own strength, your own power, your own fearlessness. For when you remove fear from the equation of living your passion, anything is possible.
Simply imagine walls dissolving, barriers evaporating. You hold this much power within you. There is nothing outside of yourself that you need to accomplish anything that you desire. We cannot say this often enough. Read the rest of this entry »
We all have a soul light that is eternal and bright. It shines through our physical being when we are aligned with our authentic self. We are all individually created to be different from one another. If we can remember that, especially when others appear to reject us, we’ve accessed the key to unlock our soul archetype.
When we compare ourselves to others, we get off track and can try to muster up a fictitious self that becomes impossible to uphold. It creates expectations that trap us, and can actually prevent us from shining our own, unique light into the world.
Have you ever felt like you are different, or don’t fit in? The first step to finding your authentic self, and tracing back to who you are as a unique soul, is to detach from others. Sometimes there is a feeling of loneliness associated with this, but if you keep moving forward, and through it, and trust in what’s unfolding, you will land in a place where true confidence resides – the kind that can never be taken away. You will gain a self-respect that will allow your gifts and talents to flourish. Read the rest of this entry »
As a parent, I’m very familiar with the disciplinary technique known as the time-out. I personally do not use this method for my two children, but I’ve read lots of parental literature that discusses the concept. I’ve also dealt with daycare providers and teachers who use this technique with their students.
I recently had some difficult feelings surface in my own life, as I continue to work on my crown chakra. After doing some craniosacral work, I experienced feelings of unworthiness considering my new career path. I heard a toxic inner voice whispering, “You’ll never be good enough, no matter which career path you choose.”
Then I took a time-out. I took some days off from doing psychic work. I walked. I had a massage. I nourished my soul. Read the rest of this entry »
