The fear of missing out, or FOMO, can cause a constant obsession with anything, and everything – whether it’s work, the news, or social media. And it can burn us out – physically, mentally and emotionally. It can actually compromise our adrenals, stress us out, scatter us mentally, and emotionally cause sadness, or even depression. We were not designed to live this way.
If we don’t unplug, take timeouts during our day, have an entire day of restoring ourselves, or actually take a vacation to unplug, we lose perspective of the great mystery that is life. We also sacrifice our freedom.
The most important spiritual benefit of taking time out is that our intuition becomes sharper. We don’t miss out on the messages our Guides, Angels, our Loved Ones on the other side, and the Divine may have for us. Yes, we have asked for their help, but for them it’s like t getting a busy signal on a phone line. They can’t get their message through to us. Read the rest of this entry »
Do you ever have a feeling that maybe you shouldn’t go somewhere, or you shouldn’t do something? Your inner voice is there to protect and guide you, so always pay attention. You will benefit from this always, so trust your gut.
Do you feel disconnected from your intuition? If you want to get in touch with your intuitive side, find a quiet place in your bedroom, or even your bathroom or closet, and meditate. Become mindful of your inner voice. What is it saying? This is also a great stress reliever!
Just be by yourself and release all the stress and problems of your daily life. Nothing drowns out your inner voice more than stress and worry. The world we live in these days can be very difficult place. Take more time for yourself. Read the rest of this entry »
If you were to enter my garden in England, one of the first things your eyes may be drawn to is a gorgeous hanging basket full of purple petunias. I put it there for several reasons, and not just to gaze upon its beauty. No, it hangs where it hangs because of how it makes me feel.
Flowers are metaphysically powerful and can assist you in obtaining emotional and spiritual well-being. My purple petunias make me feel motivated and brimming with wellness. Okay, this may seem like a bold statement, but flowers truly are magical in that they can help enhance your productivity, overall happiness, soothe any sensitivity in your life and help to motivate you at the same time. And yes, they can do this for you by just looking at them. 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 »
Recently, I attended a Toastmasters meeting where a gentleman was delivering his first speech to this specific group – an ice breaker to have us get acquainted with him. Instead of the typical short autobiographical introduction this speaker chose to give us an overview of his philosophy of life.
He told his audience that he sees himself entering a new phase of his life right now. He spoke about how important it is to get to know yourself and to take care of yourself first and foremost, and to always live in the moment.
After the speech and applause, the toastmaster reflected briefly on what the talk meant to him as he had listened. He said it reminded him of a mentor who had once, many years ago, said to him, “Compare… and despair”. If in life you are constantly comparing yourself to others, or comparing what you have with what others have, or what you feel you lack, or need to achieve, then all that will do is bring yourself unnecessary despair.

Are you interested in using crystals and gemstones in your magical workings? There are hundreds of stones to choose from, but which ones you choose will ultimately depend on your intent. Always select crystals and gemstones for use based upon their attributes, and you won’t go wrong.
I love to use amethyst. It is my birthstone and is also the 6th anniversary stone. Amethyst is a form of quartz crystal, and appears in a wide range of purple and violet colors. My favorite color is the deep purple variety.
Amethyst is associated with the element of water, and it is also connected to the water signs of Pisces and Aquarius. One can use amethyst in healing rituals related to treating depression or anxiety, mood disorders, and to relieve stress. Read the rest of this entry »
Energy medicine, most specifically Reiki, can have the most amazing results when practiced on humans, animals and even plants. As a Reiki Master, I have noticed great benefits from using Reiki on my own animals, as well those of my clients.
Reiki is a natural form of healing that harnesses the universal life force, to promote healing and relaxation. The Reiki system of healing was created in the nineteenth century by Dr. Mikao Usui.
There are many Reiki practitioners that work almost exclusively on animals. Reiki can be used hands on, or by means of distance healing in which the healer uses a picture or impression of the animal that needs healing. Read the rest of this entry »
There is an ancient belief system that everything can be seen in one’s face. Your emotional state, your physical state, warnings, strengths and weaknesses. I have been studying this philosophy for many years and have found it to be very helpful when observing my own physical well-being, but also that of my clients and students.
For instance, your circulation can be observed in the forehead and the nervous system in the pupils, while the kidneys can be seen under your eyes. The heart is at the tip of the nose, the sexual organs above the upper lip and the stomach is on the upper lip.
The first 28 days after conception is the time when the top portion of the embryo’s face develops. If drugs or medications are taken by the mother during this time, it can cause a problem throughout the person’s life span. This is also the time that birth marks are formed. Often birth marks can be related to trauma and injury from past lives, but they can also be newly formed from the intake of foods and toxins from the mother. Read the rest of this entry »
