It’s okay to feel afraid. You have an excellent built-in system for self-protection. There are many legitimate fears such as raging house fires or menacing wild animals, and your body is designed to trigger fight-or-flight responses to help you in times of great peril.
However, these are not the fears that we are referencing here. We are speaking of the ingrained fears that manifest because you have allowed yourself to become trapped by a common belief system, or perhaps someone else’s past experience.
Our lesson for you today is to nurture your ability to step back and evaluate these fears before allowing them to take hold and prevent you from living your most exciting life, becoming your very best self or, worse, crushing your potential. Read the rest of this entry »
They tend to be studious, but struggle with following a teacher’s curriculum and prefer reading their own books and following their own curriculum.
Aquarius children can be stubborn. They know so much that they think they are always right. Letting them know that they are wise and wonderful, but not always right will help them let in other’s ideas.
They are often natural debaters. Like most children, if they know they can negotiate, they will become manipulative and have a hard time accepting no. Read the rest of this entry »
Death is very much a part of this human experience and your life is eternal. As you open up and embrace these truths the grieving process will begin to transform and evolve.
There is a natural occurrence of separation and disconnectedness when your loved one moves from a physical form into spirit. These are simply attachments that the ego holds. Change is difficult, we understand that. As a human being, part of your growth on this planet is to evolve, and your evolution takes place within change. Read the rest of this entry »
Repressed memories are the hallmarks of deep-seated trauma and hurt. Recently a close friend shared her experiences with what she could only label as ‘repressed memory.’
For years she had a recurring vision that left her with more questions than answers. There were physical symptoms that went hand-in-hand with those visions, for she could hear the pounding of the blood rushing through her ears and she could smell the inside of the building she ran into. She also remembered the thoughts that were racing through her head, “I can never tell anyone about this…” She had no idea what it was she was withholding from herself and others.

It is okay to say no. As a matter of fact, it is imperative to learn to say no, and stick with it. We observe that many of you try to be all things to all people. You run yourselves ragged, physically and emotionally, trying to please other people.
You put others ahead of yourselves and then become frustrated and angry when you have no time left for your own personal lives. This is exhausting, stressful and becomes completely unrealistic over time.
The challenge in setting healthy personal boundaries often arises when it becomes difficult to prioritize your own needs and desires against the expectations of others. Since when do these people rule your roost? Since when are their expectations more valid or important than your own peace of mind, ideas or schedules? Why do you give them such power over your dreams, goals, ambitions and life? Read the rest of this entry »
What makes a man fall completely in love with you? Head-over-heels in love? Well, a man will fall in love when you give the signals that you are really looking for and ready for lasting love.
Maybe it’s the timing, or certain qualities he is looking for, but I feel that it is mostly about chemistry and connection. The way that you look into his eyes, and the way you listen to him as if he were the only one in the world, the way you make him feel, and the feel of you in his arms.
Some men go for personality, and some like the intellectual side of you, the way that you smell, and the feeling that he can’t live without you, and that you are a part of him. Read the rest of this entry »
According to folk-lore, there is a trio of female archetypes, those being the Mother, the Maiden and the Crone – the latter often being referred to as a Witch or Wise Woman. Indeed, it is in the last and final stage, i.e. post menopause, that us ladies reach our spiritual peak.
In fact, the Crone side of ourselves is, incidentally, our priestess, healer and internal warrior, should we fully embrace it. The need for direction and guidance from others is no longer required. In short, we start to live life on our terms – without the need to apologize for doing so. Read the rest of this entry »
About 10 years ago, a friend of mine went to see a psychic in Cuba. It was a completely spontaneous decision made on the spot. She walked into the dusty old store and sat down. The old woman who was doing the reading handed her an old deck of Tarot cards. They were so worn that the figures on the cards were unrecognizable.
The old woman handed her the deck and said in broken English, “Hold them to your heart and place them face down when you are done.” My friend did as she was instructed.
The old lady studied the Tarot spread for a moment and said, “Heartache is making your body sick… broken….from a man that couldn’t love you. He had the broken disease and he gave it to you.” She closed her eyes and shook her head not looking up, “He left you for another.” Shaking her crooked finger back and forth she pointed at my friend, paused, and with piercing black eyes firmly said, “Leave it behind you and you will heal. Keep it in your heart and it will kill you.” Read the rest of this entry »
