During times of upheaval, sadness, psychic, or sensory overload the one thing that always brings me back to compassion and empathy is the connection between all living things.
I’m one of those who weeps at an Internet picture of a cat abandoned by society, just as much as I do for human victims of unspeakable things. None of us are any different when it comes right down to the basics. It’s what drove me to go through massage therapy school over ten years ago. I’ll never forget how everyone turned when, as one of the massage students I was asked, “what do you do now and why are you here?” I said, “I’m a professional psychic and astrologer and I want to see what lays beneath the surface of the skin.” People didn’t know where to look. Either that, or they rushed to come and say hello to me during the break. Read the rest of this entry »
There are those who believe we may be facing extinction as a species – if we don’t change our ways. This idea is not as far-fetched as it may seem. The mass extinction of entire plant or animal families is something that has happened on several specific occasions in history.
The most well-known of these extinction events is the end of the ‘golden age of the reptiles’, when most of the dinosaur species disappeared. The small percentage that survived ultimately became the bird species that today still roam our planet. I have often wondered about the fascination children all over the world seem to have with dinosaurs. It is a subject that is a source of great enthusiasm for both boys and girls. Could it be that they intuitively remember the past, that the traumatic events of that time remains ingrained in our DNA to this very day? Read the rest of this entry »
Once upon a time we were dinner. Larger, more aggressive creatures used to eat humans all the time. To this very day circumstances exist where we could still be dinner.
For instance: go to the wilderness of any continent with just a sleeping bag, a good book, a lamp, and no weapons to protect yourself and see how many days you last before you are food for other creatures.
In spite of this potential ‘guess who’s coming to dinner’ scenario that exists still today, humans have placed themselves at the top of the food chain. This is because of the dubious theory of survival of the fittest…a proposition based on the notion that beings who occupy the most spaces on this planet are considered to be the most successful.

Duplicitous communication came to be used by our kind with the advent of language. Before we developed the spoken or written word we relied on our senses of smell, hearing, touch, taste, and our two eyes. We also used an “extra sense” that is like a third eye which is often referred to as “the gift of sight”. We all have it. For some of us this sense is acute, while others have just a bit of it.
With “the sight” what you see, feel or sense is what you get. This was crucial for our species before the advent of language because when a person got information in this manner they could rely on it. There was not much possibility of getting “mixed” messages this way. Therefore, one could trust what they knew and could act on it for the sake of staying alive and advancing the state of their existence. Read the rest of this entry »
