I thought today of how certain expressions tend to stick in our minds; thoughts which we adopt for a while, or even a lifetime. It can be the words of a famous writer we have read somewhere, an expression in a song, or even just the ideas of somebody we just had a brief conversation with.
Internationally renowned author and speaker, Wayne Dyer, once said, “You will never get everything done.” It’s a good feeling at the end of the day, to know that we’ve gotten through much on our ‘to-do list.’ But for me, I also gain some comfort from such as words of wisdom as Wayne Dyer’s, as well as the poem, Desiderata, which advises us to, “Go placidly amid the noise and the haste.” Read the rest of this entry »
‘Forgettery’ is a game we all engage in from time to time. We see this game played out in relationship dramas, career concerns, or even just in a sense of generalized anxiety. It occurs when we forget who we really are, and find ourselves out of alignment with our Soul.
It can manifest in feelings of not being enough – a victim, not smart enough, being broken, or disconnected and separate from others. In my daily Tarot card draws, it often comes up for me as the Star card reversed, or maybe the Eight, or Nine of Swords.
So what happens when we find ourselves here? The first step out is to recognize what is happening. Once we can acknowledge this ‘not-so-good’ feeling, we can sit with it for a while and then recognize that this feeling is coming from our thoughts… and thoughts can be changed. We are deserving and worthy of everything we desire. Why not? We can heal this. Read the rest of this entry »
Many years ago I had the blessed experience to work with a Native American shaman. I had to travel deep into a canyon in Arizona. This particular canyon cannot be accessed without a tribal member as escort. I was picked up in a jeep and whisked off to an area surrounded with red rock cradled in Aspen trees.
The canyon cliffs shot up hundreds of feet into the sky, eagles flew overhead, trees whispered the message of the wind, and streams of clear water bubbled over the river rock.
Amidst the beauty of this place there was also great poverty. Children stood in the streams selling beads and various artifacts made from the surrounding nature. Packs of wild dogs ran wild, seeking food. I had one thing on my mind: enlightenment. Yet, I was disturbed by what I saw around me. Read the rest of this entry »
The first step we need to take when we are doing deep spiritual work is to face ourselves. In mythology there is a story of a monster that dwells on the border between the physical and the spiritual worlds. In order to reach higher realms, we must face and conquer this monster.
Facing ourselves takes a lot of courage. Facing ourselves means that we stop blaming others and take responsibility for our own actions. It can also involve taking responsibility for the actions of others, by accepting responsibility for simply participating in certain circumstances through thought, word, action and feeling. It also has a tendency to annoy us, or make us very uncomfortable. That’s the price of spiritual growth and freedom. Letting go. I talk about this a lot in psychic readings about romance.

Drawing upon the gently swirling patterns of the benevolence and moods of the delivery of rain, wind and the sighs of sunlight, here within the true freedom of divination or spirit lies. When looking upon the strata and cirrus patterns that beset the azimuth across our skies, here within the simplicity of the patterns of nature, here we can find succour, within the artwork of these neutral and just breaths of renewal and resurgence.
Below the feet upon the ground upon which you walk, simply you will feel the centre of your mother earth, nurturing you to a point of reprieve, only rooting you back within the trees, there within the flowers, there beneath beauty of the forest beneath the bowers there you will find peace and beauty. Look up between the leaves to see, waving, rustling, singing, only to feel the sunlight upon your face, opening you up to a spiritual place, upon which you can find your grace and peace to see the future past and present within these wordless friends.

Whether or not you have children, we must all support the new generation, the rainbow children, the indigo and crystal children. They have come to assist in this planet’s ascension and healing. They are most revered and honored for their work here on this planet.
All adults are asked to step up and take part in helping them to discover and embrace all of the gifts that they have come here to bring. Each and every one of you has a role in the lives of the children here on this planet. This role is to be taken quite seriously. Whether you are a neighbor or a friend, do not diminish your ability to partake in their experiences. You are all very much needed to come together assisting in their unfolding.

As living beings having a human and earthly experience, we are bound by natural law. Natural law is simply the order of things and one of the primary natural laws is that things unfold over time. This law represents the seasonal dynamic of life.
Many times, people will have a desire, something that they would like to experience in relationships or within their career. I am confident that our desires are meant to be fulfilled, but it is important to understand that the fulfillment of our desires unfolds over time.
Just like a garden, it is crucial for us to recognize the process by which things come into being. I want tomatoes in my garden. So, I started some tomato plants from seed. When I planted the seeds, I trusted that they were growing. This is often the first step to manifesting. We must trust that the natural order is working in our favor. Read the rest of this entry »
As a Tarot reader through many seasons, I have seen for myself where interpretation, listening to instinct and understanding the true meaning behind the cards makes for a better and more rounded reading. But perhaps the Tarot in and of itself will want to play tricks on you. This too I have seen many times!
People tend to misunderstand the Tarot, its meaning, and more importantly, its true purpose. It was never intended as a fortune telling tool per se. It can only be through careful study and a willingness to open one’s mind and heart, that reading the Tarot can be truly successfully mastered. Yes, even to the point of predicting time frames – something clients love, of course, but which can be very tricky to predict. Reading the cards correctly and imparting correct advise is crucial when it comes to time prediction. Read the rest of this entry »
