Jodi Picoult writes, “Is Fate getting what you deserve, or deserving what you get?” As an idealist, I consider these words to be my creed.
Each day I make choices about what I eat, drink, say, or do. Many years ago when I was very young, I made the decision that The Eight-Fold Path of Buddhism was an easy way to self-access my behavior:
(1) Right view – to see and understand things as they really are
(2) Right intention – commitment to ethical and mental self-improvement Read the rest of this entry »
My ex was actually a very good empath. I never knew this. I knew him well, but I had no idea that our thoughts were bouncing back and forth between each other. He at first, had no interest in the spiritual, but upon watching me work, he became interested. Then he actually became aware of empathy. I used him as a research tool, and he would occasionally call me and ask me if I was thinking of him, if I needed anything.
Awareness is the key to telepathy and empathy, or any psychic work. We all pick up thoughts, have visions or have psychic impressions or dreams, but we are unskilled in picking them up, and usually uncertain as to what they mean. Read the rest of this entry »
The first year anniversary of 9/11 I will never forget. I was taking my evening walk, and all of a sudden I heard like a rumbling like thunder. I said, “Gee, it doesn’t really look like rain coming,” but the rumbling grew louder, and louder. And then I saw the V-formation of the US Air Force fighter jets. They were low in the sky, they passed over me. I became pretty emotional and started to cry. It was not a sad cry, I was just so taken by it all. It may sound corny, but at that moment I felt so proud to be an American, and to be living in the USA. Read the rest of this entry »
The reason I feel the need to be bring this up is because I get many calls on a daily basis where a client would tell me how someone has judged them or said something to hurt their feelings.
A week ago I had a caller who was upset, because the person who judged her believed that he can walk on water, and whatever he does in life… he is better than others. I felt bad for my client and I told her that she is better than what this man was telling her. He was trying to push her buttons. I feel when someone puts another person down by judging them, it is because they are trying to make themselves feel better. Read the rest of this entry »
I have felt many different forms of love. There are so many feelings to describe it. Yet, someone loving you may have no bearing on where the relationship is going.
Really? How can that be? He has told me he wants to marry me!
I believe that empaths have a hardwired ability to tune into that love. Women especially seem to get into dangerous relationships because they ‘feel that the person loves them’. This is not to exclude men, but I believe it’s a slightly higher percentage. Maybe it is women’s biological inclination to nurture and protect the roost that enhances their empathic skills, or the highly developed language center. Read the rest of this entry »
I had a client this morning who asked me a question that I have never been asked before. After my time with her, I thought about her question and asked myself the same question with reference to my own life.
Her question was pretty simple: Who can I confide in? Who can I trust? I took a look at certain people in her life and shared what I felt. I immediately felt that two specific people were not the kind of folks you would want to trust and confide in.
But I like to make sure everything is in agreement before I reveal this kind of information. So, I also asked her for her birth date, along with the dates for a few of the people she wasn’t quite so sure about. Sure enough, it confirmed what I saw initially. Read the rest of this entry »
This is a letter to my daughter – if I had one, that is. But I don’t. So, this letter is to her, the daughter I might have had, and also to those young ladies I have known over the years who I have felt were like daughters to me.
My daughter’s name would have been Chantal-Marie, should she have been born. I suppose I could have had her, but life took its course and time slipped away. I was too busy mothering myself, I think, and I couldn’t have mothered her, in retrospect. But hindsight isn’t always 20:20 – don’t let anyone fool you.
So here goes. Strangely enough, I feel as though I were on the edge of a precipice as I write this. It is a most unexpected feeling. Read the rest of this entry »
I just finished reading an amazing book called Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. It has also recently been made into a movie starring Tom Hanks and Halle Berry. Through the many twisting themes and plot devices utilized in this book one stood out most clearly to me, and it got me thinking about the concept of reincarnation and incompletion, and completion of our life energy.
The road of life is long and ever changing. Whatever you feel you are in right now, will change. It may not change overnight or within a month, but it will eventually change. The more we can get into this energy as opposed to being in the energy of resisting what is happening to us, the more completely our circumstances will transform for the better, with little to no effort on our part.
Rarely do we know how the outcome of circumstances will and should play out for the highest good. We must admit to ourselves that we have a biased way of wanting everything to work out, and that at times, this may not be in the best interest for all parties involved, or even ourselves, on a soul level.
