A Different Take on Gratitude Nov 26, 2021

Sooo much of your inbox will be about gratitude around Thanksgiving. Most of us know how a daily gratitude practice (traditionally called “counting your blessings”) has numerous benefits.* How can we extend that gratitude to ourselves in a meaningful way?

We constantly notice how we fall short, and push ourselves to improve. When we drop the ideal of perfectionism, we can be a little easier on ourselves. Yet after a momentary congratulation for a particular accomplishment, or a...

Embrace the Gift of Your Personal Evolution! Nov 20, 2021

Miracles are merely things that happen outside our structure of knowing. Like with magic tricks, you can operate "outside the box" of the average mindset and grow skills to make real magic happen!   

I was invited to be a guest on a podcast series (hosted by celebrity healer Adrien Blackwell, from SiriusXM, E!, and Vh-1) called “Making Miracles Happen.” The focus was going to be on stories about mediumship; but before the interview, Adrian read my book “Your...

Ciaran – Such Sweet Sorrow Nov 12, 2021

I can initiate communication for someone who wants to connect with a specific person, and often get this request when the death was sudden (including suicide). There can be lingering questions and things unsaid; it’s also another chance to say goodbye. We can still be in relationship with someone who is gone! Sometimes people continue to hold on to grudges, resentments, and misunderstandings; the opportunity is to resolve that for themselves. The person who has died has a much larger...

James – “Alarming” News Nov 05, 2021

Paranormal activity can be happening for many different reasons but is definitely an attention -getter! In this case, the goal behind the dramatic antics was to convey an important and timely message to the family. Most people will seek some kind of help when things go “bump in the night.” It can seem scary, but what else is a spirit to do when other ways to reach people are too subtle, or could be discounted?       

A woman’s teenage...

Ann – A Timely Message Oct 29, 2021

I had seen Ann, a corporate CEO, for different physical and work-related issues. In this particular session an elderly woman immediately presented herself. She said she needed to tell Ann something about her home. She then took me on a room by room “tour” of a beautiful, grand house. Furthermore, she was proud of her home and the things she had collected in her travels. I was astounded by a massive, intricately carved bedroom set, with antique dolls resting in a row on the...

Ancestor Altars - Connect while the Veil is Thin... Oct 15, 2021

Ah, Halloween… a very popular holiday these days! It started as the Celtic/pagan festival of Samhain, to welcome the harvest and usher in the “dark part of the year.”

Celebrants believed that the barriers between the physical world and the spirit world break down at this dark time, allowing more interaction between humans and denizens of the Otherworld. In ancient Europe, many pagan celebrations of the dead took place in the fall and consisted of bonfires, dancing, and...

Empaths and Energy Signatures Sep 11, 2021

Empaths! A lot of people are relating to that term these days. Did you know there are three specific kinds of empaths according to your Energy Signature? The Priest, Lover and Gardener are all different energy types that have empathic qualities. Empaths sense other people’s “stuff”. The specific ways that you sense other people’s “stuff” depends on these types within your Energy Signature. Do you energetically take on, tune in, or flow with others? ...

Somewhere, Over the Rainbow Sep 03, 2021

It’s been over a year since I wrote my “Corona Care'' series (back when we were calling it Corona) and since then our lives have been transformed. We are experiencing ongoing changes in how we live, eat, work, recreate and socialize - and a kind of whiplash versus linear progress in those changes. Influences both internal and external continue to evolve rapidly. Finding the stillness to contemplate, and remain open to what’s possible, can be challenging.

Accelerated shift is...

Emerging from Covid – One Interaction at a Time May 20, 2021

I’m going to take a break from PAST lives storytelling to address our current state of affairs.

Coming out of Covid evinces an odd and contradictory set of feelings and thoughts. Excited, fearful, relieved, anxious, exhausted...I’ve heard this described recently as languishing.  Languishing means “lack of vitality, failing to make progress” or “being forced to remain in an unpleasant place or situation.” During the pandemic I’ve noticed this...

Healing a Past Life Wound - from the NOW! May 13, 2021

Once again, what draws our attention most is when we have some physical issue show up. Usually the causes are many - physical, emotional, and energetic. The energetic aspect can also have lots of layers to it. Often in past lives we see multiple instances of an injury or some dynamic playing out again and again. Addressing all of the practical current causes, plus lifting some of the past life influences, can make for a more profound difference in the degree of healing.

Linda: Just the...

Karmic Past Life Wounds - with a Stranger! May 06, 2021

In Buddhism we are encouraged to think of - and treat - every person as if they were your mother. This helps generate compassion and acceptance of all who we encounter. The truth is, they actually could have been your mother in a past life (or brother, lover or or best friend)! It’s an ever-changing cast of characters and roles from life to life.

When my daughter was 3 yrs old, I was pulling the “do this because I say so I’m your mother” power play. I’ll never...

Past Life Wounds Leave Strong Impressions Apr 20, 2021

Some people are curious about their past lives for no particular reason. I don’t do what I call “past life fishing trips.” They can be interesting but often are not particularly relevant to this life! Accordingly, I let past lives arise naturally during a session; in that case, they are always related to a client’s current experience. The past life can serve to explain a physical issue, or give insight into a psychological, emotional or relational dynamic.

Thomas: He...
