Plants are everywhere, even in urban environments – from the windowsill potted plant to the hundred-year-old oak in a city park. What you may not know is that plants, just like people and animals, are psychic and react strongly to the energies around them.
In a well-known experiment, scientist Cleve Backster, who was at the time working with police departments to develop polygraph (lie detector) machines, attached a plant to one of these machines. He found that the plant detected intent. For example, the plant reacted with humanlike responses, such as fear and anxiety, to his thoughts of burning the plant.
The plant also showed an empathic response to pain, such as when Backster cut his finger. The results were even the same when he directed his thoughts toward the plant from some distance away. All this from a common potted plant found in an office! Read the rest of this entry »
This is a story about Synda, the shapeshifting cougar. Synda is human, but she also has the gift of being a shapeshifter. She cares for all homeless pets discarded by their uncaring humans. These careless people buy their pets, domestic or wild, just because they were cute or exotic to own, as a social status symbol. In other words, they become pet owners just to show off to their friends. Then when they find out there is so much work to keeping a pet, they just simply get rid of them – sent off to fend for themselves, hurt and broken. Synda then finds these unwanted animals and become their mother and caretaker.
Synda knows that there are also good humans around, and she would regularly visit them especially at night. Since she possesses the power of invisibility, they are not aware of her, and don’t become frightened by the sight of a rather ‘large cat’ sitting by them and smiling! Read the rest of this entry »
Fall is my favorite time of the year. I always feel much more connected to subtle energies, elementals and spirits, as though they are like people we see in everyday life. The veil between the worlds thin as we approach the end of the natural year. Lately, I began feeling even more connected to Goddess energies than I usually am this time of the year.
I have also been doing some serious thinking on the mysterious Lilith Points that are in everyone’s Astrology charts. Lilith is described as the point in our Astrological charts that is all and everything that cannot be explained, but is known as “what is.” I found myself meditating on this puzzling description and the answer eventually came to me. It was not as sinister as I thought it would be, and yet it is scary to think about. Read the rest of this entry »
Some time ago, I was sifting through my box of notes and papers collected over the years, and among all the documents and media cuttings, I found a list which describes the symbolic meaning of various colored feathers. Finding the list was a lucky coincidence. Or was it?
My husband and I live in a rural area outside a small town in South Eastern Spain. The people here are very friendly. Yet, without intending any disrespect, it is unlike many beautiful Spanish towns. I guess you could say that ours is somewhat soulless? It certainly is devoid of much in the way of any natural beauty, or cultural architecture. Another thing we don’t see much of either, is bird life.
More recently, I was thinking hard about an upsetting situation, while leaving the town hall. The outlook of the problem I was dealing with seemed bleak. But, as I left the building and turned a corner, I looked down and there was a beautiful snow white feather! A sign, or another coincidence? Read the rest of this entry »
Faeries love fun and love to play! When you are experiencing a creative phase, or feeling called to go outdoors, or into the garden, there’s a good chance you are being called out to have some fun and free spirited playtime with the faeries.
Typically, faeries, or fae, are easiest for us to connect with during the times of year when seasonal energy portals are open on the cross quarters holidays of the Summer and Winter Solstice, and Spring and Fall Equinox. These times are traditionally also celebrated in the ancient pagan festivals and religious holy days of Imbolc (Saint Brigid’s Day) on February 1st, Ostara (Easter) on March 21st, Beltane (St. Walburga’s Day)on May 1st, Litha (St John’s Day) on June 20th, Lammas (Loaf Mass Day) on August 1st, and Samhain (All Saints’ Day) on October 31st.

During the time of my ukuthwasa (period of initiation to become a traditional healer or sangoma) some decades ago in Southern Africa, my mentor and some other village elders would join our group of ithwasa (sangoma trainees) by the campfire and discuss other spirits. That is, others in addition to those of our ancestors.
We heard many tales of other spirits who control the rivers, oceans and lakes, as well as those who live in the sky and control the rain. There were also stories told of sacred places where spirits inhabited mountains, trees and rocks. I loved hearing those stories from various individuals whom have had unique experiences and felt they had seen and communicated with those various spirits. Read the rest of this entry »
There is a Full Moon today, traditionally also known as the Buck Moon, Thunder Moon or Hay Moon. Have you noticed that the Moon affects your moods and behavior? There have been scientific reports about the effect of the moon on human behavior, including heightened mind activity, increased visits to the emergency room, increases in violence, and people complaining about mental distress.
The frequencies of the Moon can affect our feelings, emotions and desires. The idea that a Full Moon is connected with violence, aggression, sleepwalking and general craziness is as old as time. A Full Moon is also supposed to send pregnant women into labor and make nursing home residents more agitated and unruly. Read the rest of this entry »
There is the fashionable notion these days for individuals to be branded as ‘psychics’ or ’empaths’ if they are emotionally sensitive, or display a high level of compassion towards others. It is automatically assumed that people who are emotionally highly intelligent must also have an exceptional capacity for extra-sensory perception (ESP). Nothing could be further from the truth.
If anything, I believe this myth is only serving to confuse and mislead people, and may even cause further emotional damage, by imposing unreasonable expectations on some highly sensitive, or even emotionally vulnerable people.
I had many traumatic paranormal experiences in my childhood, and I was constantly overwhelmed by extra-sensory perceptions I did not understand. To find reliable information on the subject in those days was near impossible. The confusion and frustration I had to endure in my youth – often due to the ignorance of others – made me vow to research, learn and share as much as I could about psychic abilities. If I can spare just one gifted child unnecessary trauma, or inspire just one adult to come out of the ‘clair closet’, the bewilderment I had to endure would all be worth it. Thus, the reason for this article. Read the rest of this entry »
