Dreams tell the hidden truth and help us to understand ourselves. Shamans and mystics believe that there are basically three types of dreams.
Lower world dreams connect us with our instincts. We see these dreams in archetypal symbols, myths, colors, nature, gods, goddesses, animas, elementals and mythical beasts and characters. There are secrets hidden in these symbols. Archetypes are also present in everyday objects such as cars, or clothes.
Middle world dreams are where we work out emotional issues in our daily lives. We dream about ourselves at work, play, and where we live. We dream of our relationships, our crushes, old flames, our family. Read the rest of this entry »
One of the best investments to make in your home today is a Himalayan salt lamp. It is typically a large piece (or pieces) of pure salt from the mountain range of the same name. The real thing, as opposed to imitators made from rock salt or less pure forms, is mined in the Punjab provinces of India and Pakistan.
So what is so special about a light bulb inside a rock, anyway? Turns out, lots of things.
We are surrounded by positive ions (atomic particles with uneven levels of charge) in our modern world due to new technology. These ions are generated by televisions, microwaves, mobile phones, and the like. We also find positive ions in airborne toxins, such as mold and pollen.
The properties of the salt lamp generate negative ions to counterbalance these energies. If you’ve ever experienced the regenerative power of a beach, or the aftermath of a storm, you know what this feels like. Read the rest of this entry »
Do you deeply and intensely feel the emotions of others, easily get sick or injured, and have a natural connection to all things spiritual? There’s about a one-in-five chance that you may be an empath.
Being an empath is different from someone who merely feeling empathy for others. The difference is being someone who is able to turn off the flood of emotions, against someone who is not. What a difference! A true empath literally feels everything, and that can be overwhelming.
It’s in the empath’s nature to take care of others at their own expense, which is why empaths often get moody or difficult. They may need more solitary time or exposure to the natural world than other people. Despite all of this, they are a gift to themselves and others, and they can learn defenses against the constant tsunami of incoming emotions. Read the rest of this entry »
Meditation is vital in developing your psychic abilities, as it develops your ability to switch your brainwave states while remaining fully conscious. Frequent meditation specifically helps you achieve and sustain an alpha brainwave state where psychic information comes easier than in the normal waking state of beta.
The theta brainwave state is where most of us fall asleep, but some experienced meditators can achieve this state and still remain aware. This is the state that a lot of mediums are in when they communicate with the dead. I saw an episode of The Dr. Oz Show where he had Teresa Caputo, the “Long Island Medium” hooked up to a machine that measured brain waves (messing up her hair in the name of science) as she read for the audience. She was in a theta brain wave state while she got the messages.
I don’t bill myself as a medium, but I have had some remarkably clear messages from spirit as I was beginning to fall asleep, in that in-between sleep and awake state. Lately, I have been working on extending that state of mind as I wake up, to stay in that theta state as long as I can and see what information I can receive. Read the rest of this entry »

For many years the phenomenon of out-of-body experiences (OBE) has intrigued doctors, scientists, scholars, theorists and spiritualists.
Most often OBEs are associated with illness or traumatic incidents, but in 2007 British and Swiss researchers published studies describing how it may be possible to produce OBEs in healthy people.
Some experts believe that the subconscious takes us out of our body at night. It is believed that with practice you can use this to your advantage and train your subconscious to actually ‘wake you up’ after it has left your body. There are many methods to use to impress this idea on your subconscious, including listening to subliminal OBE suggestion tapes, affirmations, visualizations, reading books, and listening to music that has OBE-suggestive words.

Are you interested in using crystals and gemstones in your magical workings? There are hundreds of stones to choose from, but which ones you choose will ultimately depend on your intent. Always select crystals and gemstones for use based upon their attributes, and you won’t go wrong.
I love to use amethyst. It is my birthstone and is also the 6th anniversary stone. Amethyst is a form of quartz crystal, and appears in a wide range of purple and violet colors. My favorite color is the deep purple variety.
Amethyst is associated with the element of water, and it is also connected to the water signs of Pisces and Aquarius. One can use amethyst in healing rituals related to treating depression or anxiety, mood disorders, and to relieve stress. Read the rest of this entry »
Lately, I have noticed my body requiring a bit more sleep, and my clients have been expressing the same feeling. I also had a small injury around my heel, when I stepped off the treadmill a couple of weeks ago (or I think that is what happened). I have been wondering if the pain was causing the exhaustion, or was it the change of season, or something else?
In September this year, we experienced two major Eclipses. With Eclipses we are invited to make changes, so transformation can take place. It may take a couple of months, which often can cause us to need more rest, so our body, mind, and spirit can catch up. Read the rest of this entry »
