As we wander through life we encounter many roadblocks, many stumbling blocks and many disappointments. There are many questions that arise as we walk our path. At times it feels like the entire world is against us.
This is simply an illusion that we create in our humanness. Spirit does not want you to fail in your life. Spirit does not want you to be unhappy. Spirit does not want you to live a pauper’s life. However, so many people blame God, Spirit, the Universe, or other people for the situations they are in and cannot get past.
It is time to sit down, take a look at all that has happened to you and discover two things about each situation: why did it happen and what was the lesson you learned from it? As you look at the examples of pain, suffering or disappointment in your life, what do you see?
For example, you have been with the love of your life for many years, married, children and one day you wake up and that partner has left you for another person. What could you have done to prevent this? What could you have done differently? Why were you not enough? You were in love, totally and unconditionally, and you thought they felt the same way about you. Why did they do this to you? Read the rest of this entry »
What is faith? That’s a really good question! I was raised an atheist and was taught life and all that happened was solely the result of my own efforts – meaning all failure was my fault and all success came from my efforts.
Whew! This is at the heart of American culture. Just do it. No fear.
Even the New Agers believe if it happened to you it is because you were thinking it. The ultimate guilt trip. This means, I can have no bad thoughts or they will manifest like the devil itself… and it will be all my fault.
I know for a fact the New Agers are wrong, because with the amount of pain and tough issues I have had to process so far in my life, I should have been able to blow up the world by now. Read the rest of this entry »
Dreams represent messages from the unconscious to reveal our innermost psyche — that which is not known or acknowledged by our conscious self. Dreams are windows to the unconscious, the intuitive part of ourselves. Carl Jung calls this “the shadow.”
According to Jung, the shadow represents non-thought the conscious thought process does not wish to acknowledge. For example, many people have dreams that foretell of events, but consciously it may be too painful or threatening for them to consciously consider. The shadow-self thus protects us, until the message becomes too powerful and breaks through in a dream. Read the rest of this entry »
So, the year 2017 is finally well on its way, and already those new year’s resolutions are beginning to falter for some. I, like so many people, also have made my new year’s resolutions. I want to be more positive, more focused and more available to the ones that need me. I also want to lose weight, eat more healthily and get more exercise. These are my promises to myself, but will I live up to them? That’s a good question.
Why do we make these resolution and then not follow through? I have found that I do much better if I focus on just one. Creating unrealistic expectations for yourself will only set you up to fail. Plan ahead, and have the tools and attitude to succeed. A positive attitude is crucial to success with your resolutions. You have to believe you can do this! Read the rest of this entry »
Citrine is a variety of Quartz. It can be pale to golden yellow, to honey, even brown. It can also hold rainbows or sparkle inclusions. The name stems from the French word citron which is lemon. It was used as a gem in Ancient Greece, however most of the Citrine sold today is actually heat-treated Amethyst or Smoky Quartz. Natural Citrine is pale yellow. Heat-treated Citrine and natural Citrine are said to have different uses and metaphysical properties.
It is traditionally known as The Merchant’s Stone, because it brings money to a cashbox. In fact, this is one reason I have come to like this stone. This is a stone of success, abundance, prosperity, and attraction of wealth. It also encourages generosity and sharing. It helps with acquiring fast money. We can carry it to bring money and to stop the extreme outpouring of money. Read the rest of this entry »
Charity does begin at home. Whether you think of charity as alms for the impoverished, or kindness to strangers, or perhaps non-judgment in times of questionable behavior by others, it is still imperative to look within first. Before you can be truly charitable to others, it is important to be kind to yourself first. Ultimately, you cannot give to others freely and easily that which you do not give to yourself.
You are a loving and giving being. However, sometimes you are your own worst critic and have nothing but fault to find when you come up short regarding lofty expectations of yourself.
Sometimes you have set this bar so high that you are incapable of reaching the goals within your estimated timeline. Sometimes life intervenes in your best laid plans and deadlines are missed. Sometimes you self-sabotage from fear of success, or failure. Each of these instances can cause undue stress, which is not only harmful to you, but also to the people in your circle.

When we think of abundance, our general thinking is that it refers to money and finances. It is true that with the energy of money we can create the life we love, and we can be in a place to support others or causes that we love. But abundance goes beyond mere wealth or financial prosperity. Consider the abundance of time, abundance of friends, abundant health and well-being, and the gracious abundance of love.
Sometimes we are just stuck and don’t know where to start in our desire to manifest abundance in the many areas of our lives. So let’s take a look at where to begin. Where in your life currently are you feeling the most conflict, or pain? You can begin there! From my experience and working with others, once you start examining your belief in this area and shifting it, all the other areas start to shift too. Read the rest of this entry »
Doing a psychic reading can sometimes trigger unpleasant memories or negative emotions for the psychic professional. But, as unpleasant as our own experiences may have been, they do help us to identify with those individuals who approach us for counsel.
One situation which has cropped up lately relates to jealous friends or family members. More often than not, my client doesn’t have the foggiest idea as to why the jealousy is there at all, especially when they feel they’ve put every effort into sustaining the relationship in question. All friendships and relationships take work, but when we feel that, in return we are getting back bad vibes, or any kind of negativity, it doesn’t feel fair. Read the rest of this entry »
