You are shimmering, boundless energy

Sorry I missed Sunday Psychic Sit-down yesterday, I was a bit under the weather and just couldn’t get it done, but I will be back next week with a new installment.

Today however, I want to touch on a subject that really does bother me, and that is the way we allow the opinions of others to affect the way we view ourselves. The push to be thin, beautiful, rich or successful comes not from within ourselves most of the time, but from the world of advertising and often social media.

Since some of you who read this have never met me personally, I will tell you that I am the exact same weight now as I was in high school. I am also nearly six foot tall. Going through grade school and even college was difficult for me because of this. I have been called fat, ugly, lazy –because I was fat, stupid –because I was ugly (like either of those two are interchangeable).

What is sad for me to admit, is that I spent a great deal of my life worrying about what others thought of me. I allowed the way the world saw beauty to dictate the way I saw myself, and as I look back now, that was the stupidest thing I ever did.

My guides are almost yelling at me to say this: We are boundless

You are all beautiful in the eyes of spirit and the Divine. None are perfect, not even the ones who pay dearly to look as though they are.

When you tell yourself that you are not enough, you are allowing ego and the dictates of the media driven machine, to disrespect you.  You are allowing the beautiful, individual creature that you are, the one that came to have the lessons and experiences that only you can, to be chipped away little by little. To become less, not in the eyes of the creator, but in your own eyes.

My guides also want you to know that you have an internal guidance and it is simple to use.

If an internal thought causes you to feel bad, then it is wrong and goes against what your soul knows is the truth. Neither your guides nor the Divine will ever say anything disrespectful or negative toward you. They are pure love, and wish that you could see yourselves the way that they see you—as shimmering, boundless energy.

Well, this isn’t the post I started to write, but obviously this is the post they felt needed to be written. Be kind to yourselves, and each other. I know it is hard. People can be cruel, heartless creatures. That is why it is so important for those of us who are teachers and healers to come together.

Many blessings on this wonderful day.

Spiritual Guidance

This week on Sunday Psychic Sit-down our question is one I never tire of answering:

What is a spirit guide?

In short a spirit guide is someone you made a contract with before you came to this plane of existence to help you along your journey while you are here. They were someone you knew, either from a past life or you had a strong connection with when you were in the spiritual realm.

It is the job of the spirit guide or guides (yes, you can have more than one) to help you steer around obstacles on your journey's path, and learn the lessons we came here to learn.

Since your guides have been with you since before birth, and will be with you when you pass from this physical plane, they cannot be someone you have met or know from present time.

In fact, rarely have I come across people whose spirit guides were recent ancestors, such as a grandparent that past before they were born), nor have I come across ones that were famous people such as George Washington or Joan of Arc. I'm not saying that couldn't happen. I am merely stating I haven't seen it yet.

If you would like to learn more about spirit guides, please check out my book Your Guide Said What? A Spirit Guide Q & A. Written with the help of my own spirit guides,we try to answer basic questions people may have about their guides.

As always, I would love to hear your thoughts and questions, so leave a comment below.

Many Blessings!

Sunday Psychic Sit-down

Since coming out of the psychic/metaphysical closet I have been getting a lot of questions from people who are starting out as readers (tarot, mediums, etc.) I have decided to start a weekly blog post to answer some of them. 

Here is the first question: What advice would you give to new readers who are just starting out?

The best piece of advice that I could give is this: Don’t allow ego to get in the way and keep you from giving a message. No matter how strange it may seem to you, share it.

What I find, more times than not, is that readers allow our own ego to hinder us. We allow doubt of our own gifts and the accuracy of our messages. Then we end up with something like this.

Side note: Please understand that this conversation was going on internally, while I was still giving the reading. 

MG (My Spirit Guides): tell them White
Me: White?
MG: Yes, white.
Me: Like the color?
MG: Yes
Me: ummmm, no. That doesn’t even make sense.

At this point, I completely ignore their persistence about the color white and continue on with the reading which includes a message from the client’s grandmother that I wanted to make sure he got and understood.

After the reading was finished, we parted ways and I went on about my merry way, only to bump into this person not 15 minutes later. Again, I hear the word “white”, and this time I had to ask him if the color white meant anything to him.

He told me, “ no, the color white meant nothing to him.”

I, of course, jumped at the opportunity to say “see there” to my guides. 

Then the guy said, “But my grandmother’s name was Blanca which means white in Spanish and she was from Argentina.”

At which point my jaw dropped and my guides took the opportunity to say “Nanner, nanner.”  (Yes, he actually said “nanner”. Although it was with a British accent and sounded rather posh.)

The word white meant nothing to me, but for him it was the name of his grandmother, and that was validation.  Since then, I have I learned my lesson. If it comes to me, I say it, no matter how odd or weird it may be.

It is easy for us to allow ego to take over. We worry that what we say may be wrong. That we will be thought of as a “mediocre or less than” psychic.

Believe me, mistakes will be made.  Being a psychic isn’t an exact science, we are not omniscient, though some would like for you to think we are. Just remember, the messages we receive are not for us, and may not be for us to understand.  We are merely conduits here to pass the info on.  
If you have a question you would like answered. Please let me know.

Many blessings!
