Imagine a vehicle created today that will not only be able to assess, from an inner guidance system, any damage done to it at a given time, but also have the wherewithal to be able to make all the appropriate repairs by itself. We would most likely be lined up in droves to witness this immaculate event, because more than likely we would not trust that this could be true. We would have to experience for ourselves if it truly possible.
Do you remember, as a little kid, falling and skinning your knee? What did you do at the time? Did you just have mom clean it off, allow a scab to cover it, which is your body’s natural way of saying, “Let me put this protective coating on to make sure there is no further damage.” And then all you had to do was just let your knee recover and heal by itself, with no further help from anyone or anything, because your body knows inherently what to do.

Why some psychic readings don’t come to fruition is a common question, and a good one. Firstly, there is common sense. Not all clairvoyants, mediums, and energy workers are necessarily the best at what they do. People have told me that all psychics are frauds, based on just one experience. Well, in that case one could claim that all car mechanics, hairstylists, lawyers, dentists, and doctors are also frauds, as most of us have had at least one bad experience with a person in one of those professions. Similarly, not all spiritual or psychic professionals are equally excellent at the work they do.
When getting a reading there are also many other factors to consider. Free will is an important consideration. Readings offer information on the best potential for the approaching future. But then there is what the person chooses to do. It is like receiving information on diet and exercise – how many people actually take that information to heart and follow it? Few do, especially if it is ‘inconvenient’ or takes any kind of special effort. These days we live in the effortless-but-I-want-results-right-now era. Read the rest of this entry »
With a new year comes the opportunity again to better ourselves, but how many of us consider the spiritual along with the physical or mental? Like our homes or our cars, our spiritual selves accumulate ‘junk’ over time and need cleaning too.
The first clue that a spiritual cleansing or psychic clearing is overdue is that general feeling of heaviness, emotional clutter, or being overwhelmed. Just as we tend to get depressed when our living space is a wreck, if our spiritual essence is no longer working properly, neither will we as a whole unit.
A perfect way to get started, which is inexpensive and environmentally friendly, is to smudge your physical space with a healing herb such as sage, or something stronger like frankincense. As you burn these herbs, focus on ridding negative energies and memories and repeat a mantra such as, “I release that which I no longer need, and focus now on the present.” Read the rest of this entry »
Spiritual ceremonies, where humans gather together in a circle, are especially potent. An energetic hoop gathers over the circle to assist in the endeavor for the gathering, whether it be for the purpose of celebrating a new birth, honoring a solstice, or to express anything of importance to humanity, as individuals, or as a group.
Altars are also powerful. They are a gathering place for spirits to provide protection and shielding, to aid in a calling or, perhaps, to provide a sacred place for the energy of one who has crossed to another dimension to gather and connect. Or, we might choose to build an altar dedicated to providing an anchor for our business when we are away, the same as when we are present. Read the rest of this entry »
Depression is a malady that seems to haunt us all at one time or another. It is common to feel depressed when our world is out of balance, or when it seems we are not receiving the things we most desire in our lives.
I have found that spiritual practices, such as meditation and journaling, help us to get in touch with our spirit guides and higher source, so that we can alleviate this problem more quickly and effectively, instead of treating it with medications.
Our spirit guides are a wonderful source of healing, guidance and direction. Getting in touch with our guides can indeed help us to move out of depression, for they have the ability to free and empower us on every level. Read the rest of this entry »

I decided to do a deep meditation, connect with my higher self and ask Spirit to contribute to writing this blog. I asked how people all over the world can achieve peace this holiday season and throughout the rest of the year. Here is what Spirit revealed to me.
Think about this past year, and make a list of those that were naughty and nice to you. Pray for both. Ask for happiness, joy and goodwill to enter everyone’s lives, and then also visualize this. Visualize each person and open your heart. Wish each of them goodness. Read the rest of this entry »
Whether you are battling the crazy crowds at the mall doing your last minute shopping, or trying to find a way to inform co-workers or family that you don’t particular enjoy holiday gatherings, or simply dealing with the stress of trying to do it all and be perfect at it, things are going to be just a bit more difficult this year with the incoming energy of Mercury Retrograde.
