This morning while pulling my tarot cards I kept seeing a spider’s web… beautiful in all its intricacies. Spirit said, “Pull the cards if you must but don’t forget the Spider, all that it does and the web it spins.” Thinking about this message I started thinking how the spiders web was polar opposite in its usefulness. To the spider it provides life, to the creature trapped in the web it means death and to the larger creatures it is a mere nuisance.

But to the metaphysician it means tread carefully… watch the web you spin and the ones you allow yourself to be trapped in. It also means be very aware that life is a delicate balance that should be walked with awareness!

Blessing my friends!

We have all seen the TV shows glamorizing the paranormal… and for the most part, they are wonderful as they bring this way of life from the back door to the main stream. For that, I am so very grateful! However, I do have a bit of an issue with some of these shows…

Because these shows are so main stream now, people assume that my life is similar to those on TV. My answer is NO. Why? Because it would make me insane!!! I would never allow anyone, alive or dead to intrude on my private time. Could you imagine not having any control over the voices in your head? It would feel like Whoopi Goldburg in Ghost. No one wants to feel that way. And I certainly do not want to be waken from a sound sleep with a ghost or spirit (yes there is a HUGE difference that I will explain in another blog post) desperately trying to get my attention. If that was really the case, I would not do this work!  (or more realistically, I would be in a rubber room wrapped in a “hug myself” jacket).

My everyday life is just like everyone else’s… I am a mother, cook, housekeeper, friend, writer, student, wine lover, artist, light worker and grocery shopper.. All very average and mainstream. I have to go to school events and wash my own car just like everyone else! I do not go to the supermarket with my crystal ball and turban… I reserve those items for Halloween! LOL. However, I do have a crystal ball (see picture above)… No self respecting medium would be without one! Oh yeah, did I mention that I am a bit of a smart ass? But those are things that I do and some of my personality traits… Just like everyone else, when I am working, I am the ultimate professional…

There are very strict ethics involved in this work… And believe me, this is serious work! This is work that provides comfort and peace to a person that is dealing with the passing of a loved one… This is work that leads someone that is lost into God’s divine light. And I, work on the front lines with normal, everyday people showing them that God lives inside of us, that there is no need to look to any outside source. I never for one single second forget that this has absolutely nothing to do with me and everything to do with being a witness for something greater than myself! This work is SACRED and should always be treated with the highest regard! As a medium, I work in God’s Service for other people.

That being said, I feel that it is unethical to walk up to someone on the street and just give them a reading. While most of you think, “I would love if that happened to me!” it is an invasion of your privacy. Honestly, I feel like its kinda creepy… I would not want to be sideswiped that way so I would never do that to someone else. However, it is wonderful for ratings… and at the same time, it is a wonderful way for people to see that there is really nothing scary in what we do.

Which leads to the great debate… Is it worth it to get the word out? My answer is an emphatic YES!! Yes I want people to know the peace and love from the other side… Yes, I want people to understand that the dead people I talk to IS THE HOLY SPIRIT! Yes, you are saved, even if some of your actions were not always perfect… Yes, God Loves you!!!

So I ask you… How will you work in service to someone else today?

Click on the picture to purchase this Smoky Quartz

Not long ago I met someone that was dealing with a tremendous amount of personal problems. Once it looked like an issue was solved something else would come up and she felt stuck in a pattern that she could not see her way out of. When I shook her hand I felt like I was covered with a fog of negativity and my feet felt heavy like I was walking through mud. No wonder this girl felt stuck… SHE WAS!! Her aura was clogged with a negative fog that prevented her from making the correct choices.

As a medium, when I come in contact with an issue like this, it kinda absorbs into my aura too. Not that I intentionally try to take on the issues, but I have to know what she is going through and this is how I have agreed to help. When I shook her hand, our auras connected and some of her fog absorbed. I am trained  to handle these issues and have an enormous tool box of solutions at my disposal!! This time I chose Smoky Quartz and it worked like a charm!

My 1st thought was that this girl needs some Smoky Quartz STAT! Smoky Quartz is brown quartz so in addition to all of the healing properties of clear quartz, smoky quartz will absorb negativity and quickly transmute it into positive, flowing energy. Smoky Quartz replaced the negativity with calmness, clarity and intuition. In addition to clearing the aura, it also helps clear blockages in the digestive system, hips, feet, legs, abdomen and may help calm cramps! This is a grounding stone so it works best with the lower half of your body… (clearing stuck energy at your feet as with my client). We all know that when we are grounded we feel more balanced.

I found this on http://www.witchipedia.com/mineral:smoky-quartz.

Healing and Magickal Uses

Body: Smoky quartz melts energy blocks in the lower torso including the kidneys and reproductive organs. Smokey quartz is also useful for removing toxins and excess fluids in the body. It also tones the adrenal glands and helps settle hyper activity and helps with insomnia.

Mind: Smoky quartz is mildly sedative, grounding and relaxing and is a good focal point for meditation. It helps to balance the energies of the mind and body and enhances your ability to remember your dreams. It reduces anxiety and depression.

Magick: Smoky quartz protects home, work, and vehicles. Banishes nightmares and fears. Wear smoky quartz to enhance your ability to channel spirits. Use smoky quartz to banish negativity; Stand with your bare feet on the earth and hold a smoky quartz with the tip down. Release negative energy into the Earth and visualize it decaying into fertilizer to nourish plants and trees.

Every day we are all exposed to negative people, messages, thoughts and influences and if they are not released they will continue to collect in our aura and will eventually be absorbed into our body to form a dis-ease. Smoky Quartz should be a mainstay in your Spiritual Tool Box to release negativity from your aura before it gets to your physical body…

2 of cups reversed

Good Morning… The card of the day is the 2 of cups reversed. When I 1st pulled this card I immediately thought, oh my but upon further meditation I finally understood what Spirit was saying… 1st, Be very kind to yourself today. Do not try to rush about your day. Make a list and get your mind in order before you start the day, balance your emotions with the demands of the day. Speak your truth from your heart and do not disconnect from your day or your responsibilities. Balance your partnerships and take an honest look at what you want to achieve today and go after it… But do not forget to make a list!

And so it begins… after 6 years as a professional Psychic Medium, I am having a love affair with Tarot! At 1st, I was only reading for myself, kinda getting the message but kinda doubting the messages too… Of course, my life was in confusion at the time and my trust level was at negative 2000…. I didn’t trust what I was getting and often misinterpreted the message. So I ask Spirit what I should do. They suggested using a pendulum… WHAT??? REALLY??? I had the same mistrust of the pendulum as I did with the tarot cards! My experience with a pendulum was that it always gave me the answer that I wanted to hear and not what I needed to know.

However, what I found when I started using my pendulum to choose my cards was that it took away A LOT of the doubt! Why? Because I could not manipulate the choice! There was no way to do it! It had to be my higher self choosing the cards…. and I will explain why.

When I am giving myself a tarot reading the 1st thing I do is sit with my cards asking that I get the answer that I NEED to know, not what I want to hear while gently shuffling the cards. Then I spread the cards out in a straight line. Using my pendulum I ask the question that I need answered and move it down the line. When the pendulum moves up and down with the card, I know that is the card to choose. If the pendulum swings to the left, I move it down the line to the left and if it swings right, I go to the right!

It has taken a few weeks of doing this to work the kinks out with Spirit but I am happy to say that I know love and respect my Tarot cards and Pendulum and never leave home without them!

What do you think of when you see this sign? Do you react differently, more respectfully? I know that I do… I want to protect the valuable contents that is wrapped in the package….When most people see the warning “Fragile”, they take extra precautions, knowing or at the very least hoping, that a true prize is hidden behind this sticker…  What we often forget is that our body is our packaging and that inside we are a priceless, fragile, breakable and EXTREMELY valuable! Not just some of us…. ALL OF US! We are all dealing with our own internal issues and at the same time dealing with every day life. Life can be traumatizing and painful but at the same time full of valuable lessons about our self and others…  The trauma can make us forget how precious truly living life can be!

Last week I was chatting with a new acquaintance about people being pushed to their limits  and how freeing it could be when someone just lets go and accepts more than they thought they were capable of accepting. This statement sent an ice cold rod of fear straight down the center of my very being.  It forced me to look at my inner self and I did not like what I saw! I was not pushing myself to any limits… I was guarding and protecting myself for fear that if anything in my world changed a hair that the priceless and extremely valuable glass vase inside myself, that is already cracked and traumatized  would completely shatter and I would be left on the floor in absolute pieces again…

Just like everyone else, I have been a package that was kicked around. Someone had shaken and cracked the precious cargo within never understanding how priceless the contents inside were. Never understanding the damage they were creating…. Leaving me to pick up the pieces and put myself back together. However, I have forgotten a very important element until that conversation… and that is gluing the cracks and sanding down the rough edges, filling in the remaining fractures with love, peace and happiness and making my vase solid again… Allowing my vase to hold love again… Knowing that the fractures and the cracks are the limits that I have already pushed myself to and in that statement is pure FREEDOM! My friend was correct…. there is Freedom in pushing yourself to the limits even when you are not sure what those limits are! There are priceless lessons in knowing your own worth and this conversation reminded me of mine!

It would be so easy if we all had this Fragile sticker posted above our heart as a reminder that at the center of our authentic self we just want someone to look at us and realize exactly how priceless, valuable and fragile we truly are and handle us with love and care.

This statement really hit me this morning… I woke up at 5:30 am to my dog desperate to get outside… When I couldn’t get back to sleep I booted up face book and this message stared me right in the face…

After I let the dog out (and back in) I went back to my nice warm comfy bed only to be bombarded by thoughts of situations that I could not control… People that had hurt me, conversations that I should have, conversations that I have already had, and emails that I want to write. On and on and I could not turn it off…. the longer I lay there, the more frustrated I became… I could not control any one of the situations that poured through me…

And so it IS…. I can not control the way other people behave. I can not control what other people say. I can not control the dog scratching at the door at 5:30! The only thing I am in complete control of is how I choose to behave…. I could get angry at the dog for waking me up, but I know that he is having tummy issues and I am grateful that he “asked” to be let outside so he didn’t have an accident in the house. I could choose to be angry about the person that was talking badly about me, but I choose to understand that she could not see outside of herself long enough see my pain and frustration. I could lash out via email at the person that I feel has betrayed me, but I choose to recognize that betrayal as an end to a friendship that was never supposed to last..

Today, I choose to send love and kindness into the world… Today, I choose to embrace all the lessons I have learned and let go of all of the negative influences that do not serve my highest good… Today, I choose to have control over myself and my connection with God and I choose to LET GO of all the things that I can not (and if the truth be told, do not want to) have control over!!!

 

Namaste!!

Most of us are scared to death of the “C” Word…. Not Cancer, CHANGE…. I am just as guilty of that as anyone else…

I am sitting at my desk, knowing that I have some tremendous changes coming up and I am dreading every single one. Mostly because I know that some of them will be very uncomfortable for me. Don’t we just always cringe when we are forced out of our comfort zone? I know I am… and there have been days that I have chosen some silly distraction so that I will not have to deal with it… Today I know I should be taking  pictures of my crystals and tarot cards to add to my online store and I have found every single excuse in the world to keep me from picking up that camera? Why? Hmmm now isn’t that the question of the day? But I really know why. I am not even fooling myself. I am terrified of change! Change makes us doubt ourselves and our purpose. I am terrified that I will be more than a word of mouth psychic medium. I am scared that I will actually become very busy and will not have time for the silly distractions that have prevented my picture taking today. I am scared to change my behind the scenes status and really put myself out there. I am scared of rejection.   Awwww… it feels amazing to get that all out! And I am sure that I am just scratching the surface of all the factors that will change in my life!

Change is Growth.. Change is New Life.. Change is Clean.. And Change is….. ESSENTIAL.

So here it goes. I am welcoming the winds of change to blow through my life. I invite change to whip my hair around and create a beautiful masterpiece that I am happy to see in the mirror. Change, please blow away all the things in my life that I am holding on to that no longer serve my highest purpose and release those unhealthy attachments with ease and grace. I welcome you.

In January my entire world changed and I decided to see my life in a new way. I have worked on the healing and I have stood in the face of the storm… Now that I have gotten that out of the way…. I invite you all to visit my online store at (click here –>) http://thirdeyegifts.ecrater.com/

If this is not motivation, I don’t know what is. I am ready for this change! I am ready to be the independent woman that I know I am!
