Ancestor worship is a wide-spread belief system, in both primitive and sophisticated cultures. Ancestral healing unfortunately gets very little attention these days, even though some of our patterns and energy imbalances may well stem from our genetic pool.
My first exposure to the concept of communicating with our Ancestors occurred many years ago, during initiation into the Southern African culture of divining and healing. During my training to become a Sangoma*, in a remote area in Southern Africa, time was always put aside for offering prayers to, and for consulting with the Ancestors. My mentor taught me how the Ancestor energies affected their still living relatives, and how, in most African cultures, they are seen as being our link to the spirit world.

In my 30 years as a psychic, I have experienced the joy of assisting so many people on their journey. There’s no greater feeling of satisfaction than to be able to help someone become ‘unstuck’ in their life. To present enough of a future cushion to someone, that they feel confident in moving forward, and to assist someone in developing enough faith in themselves and the flow of life, to trust that most fears that they have about the future never come to pass, is a fulfilling task.
However, I’m finding lately that psychic readings are shifting in my practice. As the consciousness of the planet expands, so does the consciousness of the psychic reader. In the past most psychic readings could almost be formatted and they had a lot of the same elements: people were primarily looking to find love, or that perfect job, or to improve their living conditions. These matters remain the standard areas of concern – the areas that affect our very survival. The readings I did for many years rarely deviated from this norm. Read the rest of this entry »
The modern stereotype of a witch is that she is an ugly, old woman with a hooked nose and pointed hat, riding a broomstick or stirring up a witches brew in a huge pot. In truth a witch is someone who practices magic as part of their religion or spiritual belief system, such as Wicca or Neo-paganism.
Witches worship nature and love the Earth; they do not worship Satan. That is a myth, just as much as the idea that witches are ugly and scary. Witches are beautiful and do no harm. They believe in the rule of three, understanding that everything we do comes back to us threefold.
The more we destroy the Earth, the more we destroy ourselves. A witch’s purpose is to save the Earth. Witches relish their wild nature and align themselves with the cycles of the earth and the phases of the Moon and the stars. Read the rest of this entry »
Recent psychic readings, and the sort of questions clients have been asking, have made me all the more aware of the responsibility of the work we do. A few words alone, a recommended path to follow, or a suggested course of action we advise, can have a huge impact on people’s lives.
When I find myself feeling hopeless at the plight of the world, and its people and animals, I always remind myself: if I can just make a difference to the life of one person or animal today, then it’s all worth it.
In 2004, I was working at a psychic fayre one Saturday. Before visitors arrived, one of the other psychics asked me to read for her, and insisted that she read for me in return. Her reading was so negative and threw me so off balance that I packed up for the day and went home. Read the rest of this entry »
When preparing for a psychic consultation, make sure you read the adviser’s profile, reviews and testimonials, especially if you have never read with the psychic before. This way you can get a general sense of client satisfaction, accuracy, and their style of delivery. Use your intuition when picking a psychic adviser. This is extremely important!
If the psychic has a lot of positive feedback, but one or two bad comments, don’t allow yourself not to read with the psychic. Nobody’s perfect and we do not always have a good connection with everyone. Read the rest of this entry »
I thought it might be fun to share some little known facts about myself with my clients, so you could get to know me a little better. I have also found that personal transparency is a good thing, because it helps people relate to us better. It helps our clients to see us as real people, and not someone who should be placed on a pedestal.
I recently watched a video where Doreen Virtue talks about an ex-husband who was possessive and emotionally abusive. I also read that Dr. Christiane Northrup used to be obsessed with having the perfect mate. What do these two women have in common? The ability to be bold, daring and transparent about their personal spiritual journey. Read the rest of this entry »
I have heard disturbing stories of metaphysical gurus and spiritual teachers sexually exploiting their followers or people under their care. This raises questions around the ethics of being in a helping profession, and also how to be on the receiving end of such help or support. Is the spiritual community paying enough attention to red flags and boundaries?
When do we set boundaries? One does not want to be too paranoid, however waiting too long might send the wrong message, like “your behavior is okay.” We want the help, but sometimes the price we are asked to pay is not so clear. I shall explore the intricacies, the dance, of this aspect of a helping relationship through the narrative below. Read the rest of this entry »
We come into this earthly existence to complete a task. This involves doing a job of some sort, which can be as basic as raising a family, establishing a corporation, or simply working in the fast food industry.
Some of us are extremely fortunate to know early on where our energy is best suited and how to meet our passion. Others may struggle for some time, until they find their own individual niche. But there are also those who never feel they have found their life purpose. Some do not even know what that seeking is all about.
Whichever way we go about it, all of these scenarios are all part of our unique spiritual paths and even though it may seem as if we are floundering at times, and wavering on our soul’s journey, this is still all part of the plan. Read the rest of this entry »
