If you have been practicing meditation, opening your chakras and playing guessing games to develop your intuition, you may have started seeing and hearing things that you have questions about. Hopefully, you are also keeping a journal and writing down anything that seems to ‘pop’ into your mind while meditating. Often these are messages from your spirit guides.
As you develop psychically, you usually start to become aware of a presence or maybe multiple presences around you while you meditate. You may catch glimpses of faces, usually benevolent and smiling, while your eyes are closed. Or you may hear a voice, or chorus of voices, usually saying loving things or singing. You can often also feel a connection to all living things in the world, and to the air, the water, and the earth. Perhaps you feel the presence of a greater intelligence that is all around, and within and connected to all things in life. Read the rest of this entry »
One of the quaintest concepts, that seemed to captivate imaginations around the turn of the 18th century, were the elements and their embodiments in the form of Elemental Spirits. These beings were the personification of the Classical elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire.
In the Middle Ages, great attention was given to these four elements in terms of diagnosis, such as the Choleric being linked to the Earth, which would be thus be linked to Taurus. The Phlegmatic was linked to the water element, or Pisces, which often would diagnose lung disorders, thus the word origin for phlegm. Read the rest of this entry »
From the darkest places comes the brightest of light…” When I first read this statement on a piece of community art, on display at a Yoga festival, I was astounded. I stood still, with my Yoga mat strung over my shoulder, my water bottle in hand, and a plethora of memories racing through my mind.
That moment instantly brought back my traumatic, abusive childhood, and destructive youth. I had come from some very dark places, until I ended up morbidly obese, depressed and suicidal at 30 years of age. I had to change my life and slowly I began to choose what I sensed was good for me.

At last, after another three months of recuperation, I was discharged from the nursing home. After more than five weeks in two hospitals located a thousand kilometers apart, followed by 90 days in convalescent care, I had no idea that the really hard work was just about to begin.
I was sent to see different surgeons for each of the injuries; shoulder, wrist, knee and foot. The severe whiplash was discovered by my chiropractor and she worked diligently for months to realign my neck and spine.
Soon, the plan was decided. Four days per week, I went to physiotherapy via taxi. It took three painful hours to get ready to go out each day and then I spent two hours in the gym, working as hard as I could to re-build muscle and regain my strength. Read the rest of this entry »
My injuries were so severe that I needed ongoing support as I healed. I was sent from the second hospital to a long-term convalescent care facility, located within a nursing home in another city, in order to recuperate for an additional three months.
On my first day in the nursing home, a wonderful woman came into my room with a message from spirit. She was a member of the cleaning staff and she asked me point-blank why I thought I was there. When she saw my confusion, she answered her own question by telling me that I looked like a workaholic to her so she felt that my accident had been sent to slow me down. Read the rest of this entry »

I had arrived at the hospital on a Friday night. My foot operation was on Saturday afternoon. However, the shoulder surgery was so complicated that it had to wait until the specialist returned from a weekend conference late that Sunday. Luckily, he was able to save two of the four shattered pieces and I was given a metal prosthesis.
I had never been in a hospital before, except to visit family and friends, so I had no idea what to expect. I assumed that my bones would heal quickly and that I would be back to work, travelling coast-to-coast, in eight weeks. Little did I know that I would remain in the first hospital for three weeks and then transfer to a second hospital, halfway across the country, in my own city, for over two weeks. I certainly didn’t expect to live in a nursing home for an additional three months, before being discharged for 46 weeks of grueling physiotherapy. 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.

As an intuitive, I do my best to gauge how things are unfolding in a given situation. I gain insight from Spirit about how things are unfolding, based on the momentum of a situation. That being said, I do not believe that we are fated into anything in this life, nor is our future static. I do my best to stay away from ‘fortune telling’ language, because it often takes away from the innate power of our own actions.
Every focused intention is a cause that will lead us to an effect. So, the best we can do in our lives is to ascertain what type of action creates an ideal circumstance. In my experience loving causes as a rule create the ideal circumstances and open up the highest path for the individual.
In the esoteric Christian tradition it is stated that, “God is Love.” So, to align with the will of Love is in essence aligning with the Creative Force of the Universe. It is certainly true that there is a higher effect when we are able to align with the will of Love. The challenging part is to ascertain Love’s will. Read the rest of this entry »
