A Moment to Regroup

Dec 27, 2021

Here we are at another starting point - 2022. An impulse for reform, renewal, and hope at the New Year still stirs within us even after yet another round of Covid. Are you on the mat yet? In the corner nursing your wounds? Ready for another go at it, a whole new year? Plans seem irrelevant, although still necessary, as is the need to release our expectations into the great unknown. One thing you can plan on doing is taking a few moments...

Solstice Redux

Dec 21, 2021

The focus at the winter solstice and other holiday traditions this time of year is the coming of light. Whether it’s literal light, the light of a savior, the light of magic, freedom, or even en-lightenment, it’s a theme.

On this day when we are the farthest from the sun, we might light a log or a candle (or even a candle on a log cake or decoration!) to remember that the light will return. Let’s spend a moment to appreciate the darkness...

Happy Bodhi Day!

Dec 13, 2021

After years of wandering, both physically and metaphorically, an Indian ascetic (formerly known as Prince) sat in meditation under a ficus tree. He was determined, for once and for all, to get to the heart of the matter – enlightenment.  There he would sit, do or die!

He had quite an eventful evening, getting the low down on all his past lives in great detail. Then he saw that cycle of rebirth and death as a cosmic scorecard, what we call “karma”. Then – aha!...

Santa Lives!

Dec 03, 2021

 

Mid-winter celebrations have been going on around the world as long as history remembers. It could be an awfully dreary and depressing time of year without them (especially this year!) We socialize more, reaching out to family, friends, and the larger community. We are moved to volunteer and donate to help others, and everyone indulges in special foods and drink. We bring trees and lights into our homes; there are beautiful decorations everywhere you go. Familiar music abounds (like it...

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...
