Until just a few years ago, I was unfamiliar with the art of spirit keeping. What does the term “spirit keeping” mean? Well, it’s like having a close set of friends around who are there to help and assist you with just about anything you can think of!
But spirit keeping is different from having spirit guides or angels around, because these helpers I keep are Earth-bound spirits who you can ask to join your family. You can adopt one for yourself, or even ask that they adopt you!
These mythical creatures consist of almost any type of entity or being you can imagine, including faeries, nymphs, djinns, dragons, immortals and spirits. They are magical, and happy and willing to serve. Read the rest of this entry »
Living just outside of Nashville, Tennessee, I am only about an hour away from the famous Bell Witch Cave in Adams. The story of this cave has been the basis for several movies including The Blair Witch Project and An American Haunting. Being naturally interested in anything paranormal, my husband and I decided to visit the home and cave on a guided tour.
According to the legend, the original house was torn down many years ago and the owners and tour guide verified this. However, the cave lies under a Native American burial ground that is estimated to be 3,000 to 4,000 years old.
We went to the location for an early evening tour and eight other visitors joined us. We walked from the gift shop to the house, where we listened to audio recordings describing the haunting which had occurred there. Read the rest of this entry »
There was a time in my life that I lived in fear and lack. I left a top position with the Psychological Research Department of a major university to start out on my own doing psychic readings full-time. I knew that it was my calling and that I needed to pursue my life path.
Although excited, I quickly started slipping into a deep depression. My family was used to living a certain way and within a few years of leaving my position I was close to being destitute. My clients were struggling financially, so I was giving free readings trying to help, but did not realize the disservice I was doing to them, my family, and myself. I struggled with the awareness that my abilities as a psychic were God-given, while I was charging for my services. Read the rest of this entry »
The most exponential time of growth in children’s powers have always been traditionally around the time kids are starting to become adults, and with the changes of emotional volatility, parents must be aware of all the energies and ideas that will be available to their kids.
To children, in a position of powerlessness, with no rights to vote, work or leave their families despite their apparent maturity, this age opens up a slew of interesting, powerful and also useless notions that can leave them confused and highly susceptible.
We as adults should be doing research into psychic abilities and explain to them the difference between spirituality, religion and psychic work. Spirituality is often an amalgamation of different ideas, a blend of ideals that help a person feel better. Religion is an ordered and structured set of moral laws to accompany the spiritual ideals for people. Psychic work can be utilized in both aspects, and have been over the ages, which is where we have historical prophets. In truth though some people seem to prefer using psychics to distance others from their spiritual truths, as the mind of man will supersede the mind of god, thus allowing for both the freedom to grow but also no foundation upon which to grow from.

I admit to sometimes wondering if there is a niche in my business for what I do – as I would vehemently contest that I am not a psychic. To me this title conveys a few meanings and stereotypes – and I do not fit any of them. I am of no particular culture with a mixed heritage. I do not believe in Crystal work (and in fact do not agree with their use as they are an environmental heritage and not an essential tool. One Crystal can take a few million years to grow). I do not believe in sorcery or witchcraft. I do not believe in controlling people or being controlled by people and magic. I do not have to use any tools, except when clients wish for predictions. I do not advertise making predictions as I am not comfortable with taking a person’s power away or giving it to them. I do not wish to ‘mess with karma or decision making’. Strictly speaking, in theory – as we are all telepaths – am I as a trained empathy or telepath, any more ‘psychic’ or just more experienced? I do have dreams that are prophetic – but I study my clients’ dreams and they can be too. Read the rest of this entry »
Before studying various Western disciplines of healing and divination, I undertook training to become a Sangoma some 30 years ago, on the borders of Mozambique and Kwazulu Natal in Southern Africa. A Sangoma can be described as the African equivalent of the Native American shaman.
To some uninformed Westerners, indigenous African methods of divining often bring up thoughts of witchcraft, but just like there is good and bad in all cultures and professions, the true essence of the African diviner or shaman is a spiritual one of seeking advice through the wise Ancestors. Just as Western diviners would rely upon their spirit guides to give them guidance, so would the African diviner rely upon the Ancestors.
My Sangoma training came about after I consulted another Sangoma and was told it was my calling to become a Sangoma myself. I was further informed that until I took up this calling, I would repetitively become ill – and how right she was! Read the rest of this entry »
The other day someone I worked with commissioned me to do some work for them, and made the assumption that people of my caliber, or people in our profession, are associated with some power or arts of a darker origin.
He meant it as innocently as possible, and I hearkened back to the middle ages. But I have to remind myself that not everyone is familiar with what a psychic is.
To be psychic means, literally, from the Greek, ‘mindly’ or ‘of the mind’. This is interesting as it seems to hint at previous thinking having not been superstitious, but possibly appreciative of the power of the mind. The connotation becomes difficult when it is associated with power. Read the rest of this entry »
I feel I owe it to the client, when I see something that looks negative or difficult, to make them aware of it. However, I feel it would be irresponsible to do so without also giving them a way to avoid it, modify it, or correct it.
The study of astrology taught me that, while we may not be able to change the event, we can change how we react or respond to it.
For example I once saw a client going out of town on a business trip, in the rain and at night. There was great danger there that was possibly fatal. I advised the client that when he was in a car, in the rain, at night, and out of town for business, to be extra careful – especially at stop lights. Read the rest of this entry »
