When I first moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, I learned that if you want to get around quickly, it’s best to walk everywhere. All the time spent walking gave me the opportunity to observe a lot about myself and my thoughts, as I ventured through various nooks and crannies of the city. On these walks, I also encountered interesting sights, fascinating people, and many exciting places, including bookstores and restaurants.
Sitting on the steps of Sproul Plaza, at the University of California, Berkeley, I always found a ragged looking elderly man. He perched himself on the edge of the curb with a Marie Callender’s pie tin to collect money. But he was no victim; his energy was combative. He would yell at passersby, “I hate you!” If at all possible, people avoided him by crossing the street. His words still reached their ears, but that 50 foot distance gave at least some reprieve.

As a professional psychic, I often come across clients who are stuck in a relationship or career that doesn’t seem to bring them fulfillment or happiness. Overall it seems our society has been conditioned to settle for less than we are worth, and the majority of us have been raised to escape from our problems, instead of acknowledging them head on.
If you are at a crossroads, or questioning why you find yourself in a toxic situation, then it may be time to get brutally honest about who you are and what you really want. Refuse to make any further excuses and take responsibility for what you can change. Denial or lack of self-love will often times hold us back, but the truth will always set one free into greener pastures. Ask yourself the vital questions. Read the rest of this entry »
As a Tarot reader through many seasons, I have seen for myself where interpretation, listening to instinct and understanding the true meaning behind the cards makes for a better and more rounded reading. But perhaps the Tarot in and of itself will want to play tricks on you. This too I have seen many times!
People tend to misunderstand the Tarot, its meaning, and more importantly, its true purpose. It was never intended as a fortune telling tool per se. It can only be through careful study and a willingness to open one’s mind and heart, that reading the Tarot can be truly successfully mastered. Yes, even to the point of predicting time frames – something clients love, of course, but which can be very tricky to predict. Reading the cards correctly and imparting correct advise is crucial when it comes to time prediction. Read the rest of this entry »
One minute you are dating the love of your life, and the next you find yourself single again. Yes, we have all been there. It is never easy when you have to go back out there again, into the dating scene, but if you want to find the love of your life you need to take a chance.
I have been dating a lot since moving to Florida. I feel like my dating life has been like a revolving door, as one guy comes in… another one goes out. My aunt said it best, “Men are like buses. When one bus leaves, another one pulls up!”
So, how does one find someone worth your time and energy in this vast morass? Dating can sometimes be like a marshy swamp, not knowing when you will hit the bottom. I have learned the following from my own dating adventures. Read the rest of this entry »
Some people believe in the Law of Karma, others do not. From my experience, personal and otherwise, karma is a very real law of the Universe. Recently, it seems the Law of Karma has shown up in my life more than I care to think about!
First, let me explain what karma is and is not. Karma is not the be all, end all of it. You determine your own karma based on your thoughts, actions and reactions. I liken it to a bank account. You either have a positive balance or a negative balance.
So, if you are a person of your word and treat others with kindness, compassion, love and caring, then your karmic bank account will be in the positive. On the other hand, if you are a person who treats others with disdain, judgment, ego, and total disregard for humanity as a whole, then your karmic bank account will be in the negative. The latter is something I hope I avoid on a daily basis. Read the rest of this entry »
We are excited today to talk with you about your relationships. And these relationships always begin with yourself. We invite you now to take a deep breath allowing yourself to open to receive all the love that you are.
When you focus on your own personal love, self-love, joy and eternal bliss that is where your power lies. Your relationship with yourself is the most important relationship that you will ever have aside from the relationship you have with God, with Spirit, with the Universe.
And so when you focus inward, and do all that you can do to nurture and honor and feel deep gratitude for that which you are it spills out into all of the relationships that you engage in here on this planet, in this space. So, if you are not happy in a relationship in your life the first place to look, to change, to question isn’t the other person, it is always yourself. Read the rest of this entry »
In his allegory Plato describes a dimly lit cave in which a group of prisoners are chained to a wall, completely immobilized. The cave represents the sensory human mind. When we believe that knowledge is what we see, taste, touch, smell and feel, we are trapped in a cave of misunderstanding. We are the prisoners.
The prisoners know no other reality other than the wall in front of them which has projections of shadow images. Its appearance resembles puppetry, as the shadows are created by people walking on a walkway carrying things on their head. These images are actually cast by the light of a fire behind them. The shadows are our perceptions that have been created from our limited experiences. These shadows are in some way representative of what we believe to be truth. What we see, we believe is real and true, however, what we are seeing is merely a shadow of truth. Read the rest of this entry »
Choosing what you allow and keep in your life gives you a sense of having control of your happiness and your future. If you are hoarder, or living a cluttered existence with too many material possessions, know that it is limiting your spiritual growth and personal fulfillment. The path to enlightenment is not paved with stuff… and more stuff. Maybe it’s time to rid yourself of those things that no longer serve a purpose in your life?
Releasing clutter is a mental thing. Millions of people worldwide suffer from what professional organizers and psychologists call ‘hoarding.’ Most people that have this problem don’t recognize this pattern in themselves, until their lifestyle is really out of control. Clean out all your closets in your home and in your mind. Read the rest of this entry »
