Channeling: Perception and Reconnection

“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear as it is – infinite”
~ William Blake, 1757-1827, English Visionary, Mystic, Poet, & Painter

To Perceive Life

There is more to this world than you see.

Perhaps if you listen.

Not just with your ears, but with your heart.

The eyes can be so deceptive.

They’re like the Ego.

They are more dominant.

They like to take control.

If you can feel something but you cannot see it, then somehow it is less valid.

Your mind says, “If we cannot see it, it is not here.”

Then how can you explain the feeling?

If you can feel it, it is even more present than if you can only see it.

The eyes do see truth, but filtered through the mind.

Touch, feeling, emotion, the initial reality of these is raw and natural…..

Only once your mind says, “Open your eyes and look for what you feel or what you think you feel…”

Then the feeling, the emotion, is filtered through the mind and given lesser status.

But can train yourself to … Continue reading →

Should You Be Afraid of Being a Psychic Medium?

“I don’t believe that ghosts are “spirits of the dead” because I don’t believe in death. In the multiverse, once you’re possible, you exist. And once you exist, you exist forever one way or another. Besides, death is the absence of life, and the ghosts I’ve met are very much alive. What we call ghosts are lifeforms just as you and I are.”
~ Paul F. Eno, Author and Paranormal Researcher

Being Afriad

As an addition to my Medium Adventures series, a reader recently asked me this question….Should you be afraid of being a medium?

It is an interesting question. And one that several people who have “accidentally” or “purposely” developed this skill over time have probably been faced with.

To be honest because I am a trained witch, meaning a “wise woman,” who has been exposed to the paranormal on a regular basis since I was fifteen, I never really had this concern at all.

But religion and dogma are just a doorway to true spirituality. Many of us are now becoming “spiritual” and slowly dropping the restrictive “religious” approach to self development.

With this in mind, the gifted mediums who are now beginning to blossom and step onto the stage, myself included, come from all different backgrounds and carry with them a wide array of beliefs and understandings.

You may have come to this path through Buddhism, or Catholicism or through Judaism. Where you came from denotes how you will react to the realization that you are starting to develop certain abilities.

This is what annoys me about some of the blogs out there written by other psychic mediums: They speak in a pointed manner about all sorts of “negative” experiences that they’ve had.

Call it transparency or call it shock value, but it does absolutely zero to foster healing or awareness in people. It simply serves to make … Continue reading →

Living in True Hope: For You & The Planet

“Hope is the only bee that makes honey without flowers.”
~ Robert Ingersoll, Political Orator

True  Hope Light

I believe that we as humans are born hopeful. That we have an inherent light within us that lives in positivity, no matter what the circumstance. This is borne out by the repeated words and advice of the spirit guides.

It may not always be easy to remember and have faith in this inner light and, when looking outside of ourselves, to the Earth and the human community, we may more easily see evidence of darkness and despair. But the truth is that we are all creations of the infinite light, that hope is always with us waiting to shine upon our path.

This is true for both individuals and for the planet upon which we live.

Based on my own experience and the wisdom of the guides, here are some valuable actions that you can take to ensure the growth of hope, within your own life and the life of the Earth:

  • 1. Incorporate a practice of daily meditation into your life. This helps to empower your thinking, balance your energy and de-stress your life. It also helps you see the positive in more things, when the negative would seem to be more obvious. Meditation is a great regulator of stress, fear, high-blood pressure and depression. Take 15 minutes for connecting with yourself every day.
  • 2. Switch to a diet that supports the natural processes of the planet, one incorporating organic, seasonal foods. A vegetarian or vegan diet is even more beneficial for the pressure that it takes off of the environment (commercial meat farming uses an inordinate amount of natural resources.) If you buy local, seasonal, organic produce it will … Continue reading →

Sexual Energy Ascension

“Everything in nature contains all the power of nature. Everything is made of one hidden stuff.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Essayist, Philosopher, and Poet

Partner Ascension

We are all spiritual beings living in these containers, known as the physical body.

The point of this agreement is to learn more of the spiritual reality of energetic awareness by experiencing the different points of view afforded us through the various human senses.

Of course each of us knows of the obvious reasons for using the human senses, the enjoyment of smelling a beautiful ripe strawberry or the inner excitement that comes from spotting a magnificent flower in bloom.

But the mark of awareness is being willing to see the beauty and benefits of all levels of creation, of both the manifest and the energetic life forces in all things.

The life energy embodied in fruits and vegetables gives up the building blocks for our own physical health. The essences of flowers can provided us with subtle energies that benefit us physically, mentally and spiritually.

If we can use the energy forces of other living organisms in order to benefit ourselves and the world then we can, without a doubt, use our own energies in the same way.

I know that many of you out there have been learning about and implementing the power of intention in your lives. And I am certain that you have already noticed great effects from it.

Now that you have tried … Continue reading →

Communicae from the Sphere People

“There comes a time when the mind takes a higher plane of knowledge, but can never prove how it got there.”
~ Albert Einstein, Physicist, Philosopher and Author

Spheres of Light

In the autumn of 2004 I was working diligently on my Masters thesis and in the throes of all that academic pressure I became aware of an energy spending a great deal of time around me.

I tried hard to ignore this rather insistent energy and to focus on the writing and research that I was meant to be working on.

Not that I wasn’t aware of my abilities as a medium, because I had been developing that gift for three years and three months already when this energy appeared.

But I did not particularly want to channel this energy. Mainly because every time I began to let it come through it caused my body to go rigid. It made my fingers and toes curl up and lock. It made my shoulders tense up and pull inward and my legs freeze into distorted positions.

Eventually, I had to let the energy come through, and what it had to say – the soliloquy that it went on – was shocking and moving and just plain interesting to me.

The beings that spoke have come to me several times since then but I was not letting them through because the way that they manifest is just beyond uncomfortable.

Now, not long ago I shared a channeling from a very bitter Mayan priest (whom I am sure some of you remember) that finally clued me in to why these beings … Continue reading →

Animals As Empaths

“Animals are such agreeable friends – they ask no questions; they pass no criticisms.”
~ George Eliot, a.k.a. Mary Anne Evans, British Novelist

Fun With A Pet

As an empath and intuitive it gives me a little chuckle to notice that same gift in animals.

My cat is one of those elements of nature that constantly reminds me of the predominance of feelings as a mode of communication instead of words.

When she is in the same room as me and I think a positive thought she begins purring.

When she is in the same room as me and I think a negative thought she often gets up and leaves.

When I hurt myself, such as stub a toe or prick my finger while sewing, she comes running from anywhere in the house, sits at my feet and meows.

She’s just making sure that I am okay.

A recently publicized case of an empathic animal is that of Oscar that cat who resides in a Rhode Island nursing home.

Oscar’s regular job is to be a companion to the many residents who live in the home, providing companionship and entertainment (as all cats do.)

But he has also been widely noted for his continuing ability to “predict” death before it occurs. When Oscar senses that a patient is about to die, he … Continue reading →

Compassion in Action

“Only that in you which is me can hear what I’m saying.”
~ Ram Dass, Spiritual Teacher and Author

Compassionate Heart

This article is a repost from our old blog – originally dated April 2008.

At present I am reading the book Compassion in Action by Ram Dass and Mirabai Bush.

It was a book that I bought simply because I wanted to read some Ram Dass and could not find his classic Be Here Now at any local shoppes.

But, despite my initial supposition that it was a book I did not need and would not particularly like, it turns out that I was very wrong on both points.

In a very unassuming way Ram Dass, sixties spiritual guru, public speaker and renown all-around caring guy, explains his own self-righteousness and stand-offishness in his past work.

He details, with humility, his confusion at how to truly implement, in a practical way, the advice and teachings that he was offered by his own guru, Maharajji Neem Karoli Baba. He talks about being caught up in his own … Continue reading →

Seeking Solace in Nature

“I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.”
~ George Washington Carver, American Scientist, Inventor and Educator

Bridge in Central Park

It is certain that we all have our bad days. Even the most enlightened of people can sometimes feel a lack of energy and be overwhelmed by the external reality of this world.

In these times we, as individuals, often wish for just one soothing moment, just an hour or two of peace and quiet.

Seeking outside of ourselves for security or happiness is, of course, not going to help us find it.

We certainly can only find lasting security, happiness and peace within our own spirits.

But the environment that we find ourselves in can often make it either easier, or more difficult, to achieve connection with our spirit.

When we strip away all the flash, the lights, the … Continue reading →

Soul Groups: Reincarnating Together

“True memories are not of mind and body, but those that remain forever written on the soul.”
~ Elizabeth Barrett-Browning, British Romantic Poetess

Ecstatic Soul Group

What is a “Soul Group” and why do they reincarnate together? This was the very provocative and insightful question recently asked of me in a forum that I visit.

I have been wanting to mention this concept here for some time and this gives me the perfect opportunity to do so.

A soul group is made up of more than one, and often several, individual souls who seem to regularly incarnate at the same time. As an individual soul is set out purposefully as a self-expression of the ALL. So these soul groups are still individual expressions brought into being by the ALL.

But as the ALL is always trying merely to learn of the endless possibilities within itself, it has occasionally experimented with coupling. By this I mean that it has set off several individuals with similar traits and given them each the same ultimate goal or soul purpose.

These souls, having begun together at the same time and … Continue reading →

The Psychic Elephant (or Ancient Memories)

“I have a memory like an elephant. In fact, elephants often consult me. ”
~ Noël Coward, English Playwright and Composer

The Psychic Elephant

Well there are several different types of Psychic and several different types of energy. I do not claim to know them all. But I get lots of questions about my experiences with energy and paranormal phenomena so I thought I would take a moment to explain one type of psychic ability that I often use. I am not aware of other psychics who have this same type of ability so please drop me a line if you have experience with it.

This gift has to do with time and in particular distant past, however all time is a continuum and the present and future are all occurring together along with the past. So our ancestors who lived in, say, a mud roundhouse are still living there in that mud roundhouse right now. Your unborn grandchildren who will one day run in the field beside their school are already running there right now.

The past is the future and the future is the past. Right now is yesterday and tomorrow is right now.

It may seem hard to grasp, like some big conspiracy of the philosophical people to sound deep and intellectual. But once you suspend confusion and disbelief for a moment it becomes quite easy to grasp.

Have you ever experienced Deja Vu? Have you ever sunken into a conversation with someone or been out shopping with your children or reached for a sweater to fold it and had that warm fuzzy awareness of exactly how the next twenty seconds would occur? It can be eerie but it can also be quite comforting, the knowledge of what the next bit of the conversation will be about.

Is it really so hard to believe that just as we are living in our third dimensional reality, there may be other humans living and striving in their other dimensional reality? Because that is the only difference.

I say that I am a psychic elephant because … Continue reading →
