Work, family, friends and intimate relationships can take their toll on everyone, but can send an empath into a tail spin. It’s crucial for an empath to be clear which feelings and emotions are coming from them, as opposed to those coming from someone else.
Empaths have been compared to sponges soaking up all the energy and feelings surrounding them. Sooner or later the sponge becomes saturated and cannot absorb any more. Instead of finding a spiritual practice that resonates for them, some empaths will shut down or self-medicate with food, alcohol or excessive caffeine in order to feel relief.

The practice of meditation is tremendously powerful and has impacts on both our spiritual and physical well-being, as well as our reality. Creating a routine meditation practice can help to supercharge your ability to manifest your desires. It also has incredible health benefits and, believe it or not, it can actually be a fun experience!
The idea that you have to be able to completely clear your mind of thoughts to successfully meditate is probably one of the most common misconceptions. This is only one form of meditation and, honestly, it’s quite challenging. For someone who has never meditated before, it would be like giving a kindergarten student a complicated math equation to solve.
As with anything, it takes some time to learn the technique and train your brain to comply with your spirit. The first thing you must understand is, you are not your brain or your thoughts. You are not your body, or your emotions. These are all things you experience. You experience the thoughts in your mind, you experience the sensations of the body and of emotions, but these things are not you. Read the rest of this entry »
There is a Full Moon today, traditionally also known as the Buck Moon, Thunder Moon or Hay Moon. Have you noticed that the Moon affects your moods and behavior? There have been scientific reports about the effect of the moon on human behavior, including heightened mind activity, increased visits to the emergency room, increases in violence, and people complaining about mental distress.
The frequencies of the Moon can affect our feelings, emotions and desires. The idea that a Full Moon is connected with violence, aggression, sleepwalking and general craziness is as old as time. A Full Moon is also supposed to send pregnant women into labor and make nursing home residents more agitated and unruly. Read the rest of this entry »
Do you ever feel the busier you become, the harder it is to remain focused and stay in control of everything? Then you are not, I promise you, alone! Sometimes life can seem like you are always juggling and struggling, but not always winning as a result.
As a professional psychic, I have always been of the opinion that if we want something to manifest in the material world we have to get the inside of ourselves, as well as our lifestyles, balanced and more harmonious first. Otherwise, we would simply attract more chaos!
I love lavender. It is the one herb and essential oil that most people love and it has many benefits, including helping you relax and sleep better. It is one of the few oils that can be used on babies and is well-tolerated by most people. Besides smelling amazing, the plant also looks fabulous!
Essential oils are the healing properties found in plants and can be very therapeutic. Essential oils are an easy way to get the healing properties of herbs into your life and they are less messy. Lavender is relatively inexpensive and readily available at most pharmacies and health food stores.
Please check with your health practitioner before using any essential oils or herbs, especially if you are not well, or taking medication. Never use these products if you are pregnant or nursing. Read the rest of this entry »
With so many unexpected world events recently, a lot of people are feeling stressed, dismayed, worried and anxious. In such perilous times as we are currently facing, it is vitally important to practice self-care.
What do I mean by self-care? From an intuitive’s point of view, after years of working in the psychic field, I have learned that it is important to take care of yourself first and foremost. Is it selfish? Definitely not. It is selfish to take care of everyone else around you, without taking care of you first. You will not have anything to give of yourself if you do not give to yourself first.
It is like being on an airplane, and when the plane is going down, the oxygen masks come down. If there is a child with you or a frail, elderly person, it is best to put the oxygen mask on yourself first and then the child or other person. Because if you don’t, you will probably not be able to help them. Read the rest of this entry »
Himalayan salt lamps naturally purify the air through ionization. Studies indicate that as much as a third of the world’s population reacts adversely to negative ions, and many people report that the air becomes easier to breathe when using a salt lamp.
Larger versions of these lamps, ideally hand-carved from the natural rock salt, are attractive and come in shades of red, amber, and cream. No two are alike! They weigh between 25 and 32 pounds and each will treat a space up to 320 square feet. Apart from the tabletop versions, did you know they are also available in a larger, half-dome size? Like their smaller versions, these lamps have multiple health benefits: relief from asthma and allergies, low energy, sleeplessness, and attention deficit. Read the rest of this entry »
Sadly, we tend to overlook the very real, physical signs our bodies give us, to let us know that the stress is all too much. If you’re experiencing one or more of these symptoms, it might be time to take a look at how to reduce stress levels and get your total health on track.
Pain in our bodies is probably the most obvious sign something is wrong, yet it tends to get ignored until it’s almost too late. Aches and pains, stomach issues, muscle tension, and heart palpitations are among the most common. Also, when we’re under stress, our sleep may suffer. Sleep is crucial to a person’s well-being, and if we’re not getting enough sleep (or too much) the entire body suffers as a result. Read the rest of this entry »
