Recognizing And Understanding Synchronicity

Recognizing And Understanding Synchronicity

One thing we all look for on our spiritual path is signs. Signs help guide us, give us validation, and simply give us hints that there’s more to reality than meets the eye. We call those signs “synchronicities.” But is it really synchronicity? Or is it something else?

The Shi(f)t Has Hit The Fan

In the Tarot world, we have a common label we use for when the shit hits the fan: a Tower moment. The Tower is a major arcana card that represents having the rug pulled out from under you, suddenly, and swiftly. The world is currently in the throes of a great Tower moment. Here’s what that means, and what comes after.

Question from a reader: “Since I was 5 I have intuitively known things that others did not.

Astral Projection

With astral projection, you can also be lucid, or totally unconscious, or somewhere in between but you’re usually not fully in this dimension.

So for about the last three years, I have had, I feel, intrusive dreams of my sons fragile state and all his surgeries.

When Psychics and Spiritual Teachers Feel “Off”

When Psychics and Spiritual Teachers Feel “Off”

I’m sure many of you have had experiences where you’ve come across a spiritual teacher who just didn’t resonate with you, or perhaps you had a psychic reading from someone that just didn’t feel quite right. In those times, we often doubt ourselves, because we’re still placing our faith in things and people outside of ourselves. But it’s of the utmost importance to trust your instincts.

Coming Out of the Psychic Closet

Coming Out of the Psychic Closet

I know that a great deal of my readers are probably “in the closet” so to speak. Your friends and your family don’t know about your beliefs, and you don’t dare talk to them about it because you don’t want to have to deal with the inevitable strange looks, the questioning of your sanity, or the condemnation that you’re going to hell for what you believe. There’s always a bit of a struggle about whether or not you should be open about who you really are and the things you’ve experienced.

The One Thing You Must Do Before Developing Your Psychic Abilities

The One Thing You Must Do Before Developing Your Psychic Abilities

It’s really hard to see clearly when there’s a yucky film on your glasses. It’s really hard to hear someone clearly when there’s a ton of background noise. It’s really hard to talk when you have a sore throat. All of these things get in the way of your ability to clearly communicate. So what’s getting in the way of your ability to communicate with spirit?

Why Fear-Based Belief Systems Are Distorted

Why Fear-Based Belief Systems Are Distorted

A person lives in a fear-based belief system when they have not yet remembered who they really are and still cling to fearful beliefs and perceptions. When they have not yet realized that everything in their world is love, and the only thing that makes it appear as fear is their limited understanding of it.

Why We Have Recurring Dreams

Why We Have Recurring Dreams

Question from a reader: “My son, Jaden, passed away in 2012. He was 10 years old. He was also born with down syndrome, autism, medically fragile the entire time and I guess you can say cognitively, between 18 months old to 2 years old. So for about the last three years, I have had, I feel, intrusive dreams of my sons fragile state and all his surgeries. I also have had many dreams of holding him in my belly to protect him over and over! Why these repetitive, specific dreams? Is it the healing process of chronic trauma, or PTSD, or part of the grieving process? Any suggestions?”

What Is Your Life’s Purpose?

What Is Your Life’s Purpose?

Question from a reader:

“I have had a difficult time trying to figure out what my life purpose is. Right now, it seems like it could go so many ways. I keep jumping back and forth between what I think I should do with my life and I am unable to decide. How can I find direction in my life and career? I just feel like I need someone or something to give me a little push and tell me which option to pursue.”

How To Interpret Your Dreams

How To Interpret Your Dreams

Question from a reader: “I have been awakening for awhile now and more comes all the time. Last night I had an experience of cool breath blowing into my mouth. I prayed Hail Mary and felt light glowing all inside and outside my body. My heart was so full and felt open and sharing energy. I heard so clearly, “We are taking you home.” I dreamed of water and so many faces, and my house that I owned before I met my husband. I know the time is so different so it doesn’t mean I’m dying now. Or was it to say the dream was a visit home?”

Non-linear Time and Simultaneous Lives

Non-linear Time and Simultaneous Lives

I think one of the hardest metaphysical concepts for people to wrap their mind around is the idea that time is just an illusion. In this post, I’ll try to simplify that concept into something even more simplistic to give you an idea of how every moment that has ever occurred or will occur exists together outside of time – including your past and future lives, parallel realities, etc.

How The Multiverse Works

How The Multiverse Works

Question from a reader: “Is the mind field the full connection of all of God including our minds, bodies, suns, time, language, etc.? If the big bang was not a singularity but occurred over all of the universe, is the mind of god permeating every part of math with all physics which equates to the smallest particle to the highest intelligence; including multiverses? Can all of these particles in existence in different multiverses affect us, our ways of thinking and ways of life in this universe? Can energy in one universe affect another and according to which laws, one or the other, or both universes?”

Are You Psychic?

Are You Psychic?

Question from a reader: “Before my great nan died, whenever the phone rang early in the morning every time I was with my dad my stomach dropped. The last Christmas we had with her, I asked my cousin do you think this will be our last Christmas with nan? And he said no, but I said yes it will be. Then the day she died I was at my dad’s house and the phone rang early in the morning. Somehow I knew. I’m still confused how I was going to find out. Does this mean I have a little bit of a physic ability or just a one timer sixth sense?”

Higher And Lower Dimensions

Higher And Lower Dimensions

Question from a reader:

“Are there different dimensions on the other side? Lower ones and higher ones. I was under the impression that since like attracts like you go to the dimension you most vibrate with when you cross over. What about souls like Jesus and Mother Marie and Lady Nada etc..are they on a higher dimension than for example Erik?”

Manifesting Your Worst Fears

Manifesting Your Worst Fears

Question from a reader: “I have some fears that I can’t seem to get out of my mind, fears of losing my partner to a car accident, or of him getting hit on his bicycle, among a myriad of other fears surrounding my family. I often try to pray to archangel Michael right after I imagine one of these accidents, but I’m afraid that my vivid visions will attract the experience into my reality. Am I attracting these experiences? Do you have any advice on how to stop having these vivid, graphic fears?”

8 Books on My Spiritual Reading List

8 Books on My Spiritual Reading List

People sometimes ask me, “How did you get to know so much about spirituality?!” I don’t necessarily think I’m a voice of authority or anything but I usually just tell them, “I read a lot.”

Well, I started thinking about it and I guess that isn’t entirely true. I haven’t read a ton of things – only about seven books, total, come to mind – but the ones that I have read have been very helpful, and now I’m going to give you that list in the order that I read them!

Time Is An Illusion

Time Is An Illusion

We often hear spiritual teachers and mediums say that there is no time in the afterlife. Some of them even go so far as to say that time doesn’t even exist here on the earth plane, and in reality, reincarnation isn’t even a linear process – all of the incarnations are happening simultaneously. So how does timelessness work in the afterlife?
