In today’s society people often view acceptance as resignation, giving up, cowardice, retreat, or other unappealing descriptive words. The society that worships, praises, and publicizes Yang energy, the energy of ‘doing,’ typically has little understanding for the power of Yin. Yin energy imagines, envisions, perceives. Yang manifests. We need both.
Yin is a warrior’s path. It is the path of acceptance, before reaction. As an example, the martial art Aikido is defined as a way of unifying with life energy or “moving Zen,” or as “the Way of harmonious spirit.” Aikido is an art that practitioners use to defend themselves, while also protecting their attacker from injury.

Our society has successfully stripped itself of most of its metaphysical marvels. Yet, magic prevails everywhere for those who still seek to find it. Despite our cynical age of scientific skepticism, techno-futurism and neo-draconian politics, the mystical and miraculous continues to endure in the hearts and minds of those who choose to believe.
I have seen evidence of this everyday magic in my work with many people all over the world, as well as upon many of my travels. I have known it in the devoted spiritual practices and manifesting projects of my clients. I have observed it in the heroic metaphysical endeavors and healing miracles of my colleagues. And I have even witnessed it at almost every birthday party I have ever attended. Yes, most of us have at some point in our lives whispered a silent wish over the candles on a cake!

We are thrilled and delighted to join you here this day. Just allow yourself to relax, and drift deeper and deeper into this beautiful sacred space that is being created here for you today.
We come to talk to you about owning your power. We often see many of you running around ‘willy nilly’ with much to do, endless tasks and chores and rising anxiety in your life. Today we want to take a moment to teach you a new way of being and thinking.
You have within your body, within your soul a light point activation center which can be turned on or ignited at any time you desire. As you allow yourself to open up and align with all that you are utilizing all of your resources on a daily basis you will find yourself becoming more present in your life. And when you become more present, you become more available to the joyful experiences that are all around you. Read the rest of this entry »
Many of us work hard on our personal evolution, self-awareness, and spiritual growth. Sometimes this takes us down the trail of intense self-criticism, often leading to disparaging thoughts that we will never get ‘better’ or be ‘good enough.’ I have traveled down this dark trail many times myself.
In addition to this being a very cruel way to treat yourself, this radioactive attitude leaks out into other relationships in our life. Even if it does not manifest in overt ways, we all know energy travels, and energy travels all the time. Self-hatred cannot be contained; it changes the orbits of our electrons.

April was a month of transformation, new beginnings and change. It was a ‘shift’ month where many found their lives in a state of confusion and not knowing what the cause is. Relationships fell apart. Not just marriages or soul partner relationships, but also relationships with friends, family, career, loss of material items, and so much more.
Why is this happening at this time? When I put this question out to spirit, this is the answer I received in return.
“Your life is changing and so must the attachments that come along with it. We are removing those things that no longer serve you as we know what is best for you even if you think otherwise. Read the rest of this entry »
In his allegory Plato describes a dimly lit cave in which a group of prisoners are chained to a wall, completely immobilized. The cave represents the sensory human mind. When we believe that knowledge is what we see, taste, touch, smell and feel, we are trapped in a cave of misunderstanding. We are the prisoners.
The prisoners know no other reality other than the wall in front of them which has projections of shadow images. Its appearance resembles puppetry, as the shadows are created by people walking on a walkway carrying things on their head. These images are actually cast by the light of a fire behind them. The shadows are our perceptions that have been created from our limited experiences. These shadows are in some way representative of what we believe to be truth. What we see, we believe is real and true, however, what we are seeing is merely a shadow of truth. Read the rest of this entry »
It may be helpful to make a list of all of the negative attributes of the person your trying to get over, but when we look deeper, as psychic advisors, we often see a web of energy entanglement present between the caller and the person they are trying so hard to sever ties with. There is often so much more going on than simply the physical and emotional. Hence, the challenge to break free.
“I want to release him,” says the client, almost pleadingly. Sometimes the caller can feel as if they are just about getting over the subject of their affection, and then… wham! A message, a media post, or sudden surge of longing surfaces to claw them back into wanting the relationship at any cost. This often reminds me of popular oldies like Engelbert Humperdinck’s Please Release Me and Gladys Knight’s Midnight Train To Georgia (I‘d rather live in his world… than live without him in mine).

The very first, and rather touching description of humility that I ever heard was during my earliest days of following a Twelve Step Program of Alcoholics Anonymous. I was read out by a man with 16 years of sobriety:
Humility is perpetual quietness of heart. It is to have no trouble. It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore. To wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me. It is to be at rest when nobody praises me, and when I am blamed or despised, it is to have a blessed home in myself where I can go in and shut the door and kneel to my Father in secret and be at peace, as in a deep sea of calmness when all around and about is seeming trouble.
My mentor in that program told me to try kneeling in prayer. She told me this humbling posture would strengthen my intention of any prayer I was reciting. Read the rest of this entry »
