I have counseled so many people that are normally outgoing, loving, supportive, wonderful souls, but sometimes these souls are so giving they give themselves away. They forget to protect themselves in the process. Have you ever had this presence of an emotional vampire in your life? This can happen in a love relationship or a friendship, or with a family member.
Is their needs all that count, but yours never ever do? Love is not love, and friendship is not friendship, if you put aside yourself on a daily basis. This is what we have to remind ourselves of on a continual basis. Sure, relationships are give and take, but when they seem to take and take, and there is no giving, something is off.

Have you ever felt a sense of déjà vu, with a person, place or object, or even an incident, yet you have never met this person, never traveled to this place, never had this experience? Have you ever had a craving to learn something, and found that learning it was very easy, or have you met a person you felt you know already? If the answer is yes, it may be because of a forgotten premonition that came to you in your dreams, or perhaps because of a past life.
Reincarnation is something I firmly believe in, and the idea that we come into each life with a unique skill set, learned life lessons, our unique personality, and a preset of the lessons our soul needs to learn. This we will take into our next incarnation. Read the rest of this entry »
Several years ago I was gifted my spirit name, Soaring Free, by one of my personal spirit guides of Native American decent. I have been reflecting on this for the past few weeks, as I am entering a new phase of my spirituality and higher consciousness.
Back In 2004, I had crossed a personal line in my life where self-esteem, confidence, happiness and self-love were basically non-existent. When I speak to my clients about the struggles or confusion they face on their life path and spiritual journey, or in their careers or relationships, I completely understand. I have been there myself, and I have experienced more than most. Fortunately, I have been able to overcome those challenges and I now know that anyone can overcome adversity.

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 »
