Do Your Negative Thoughts Manifest Disease?

Question from a reader: “I have a fear that I may have cancer. I’m just 19 years old and I eat well and healthy.

Do Crystals Really Work?

Do Crystals Really Work?

Question from a reader: “Do crystals really have properties that can be helpful for healing? I’m so skeptical of that and wonder if it’s a scam to get us to make some people wealthy. I don’t like spending money and won’t spend it unless I can see/validate it’s usefulness, but I’m still keen on your opinion on how and why they work.”

How Does Love Show Up In The New Paradigm?

How Does Love Show Up In The New Paradigm?

Question from a reader:

“I totally get the higher vibe love but I don’t know how that is supposed to present it self to some of us. It certainly is not love n’ fluff (or hell, maybe it is), but I believe it has more to do with being in our truth and power. And I may have had some flavors or glimpses of what that feels like but in general I just have no clue. How does higher love show up?”

Question from a reader:

Can You Ever Ask Too Much Of Your Spirit Guides?

Can You Ever Ask Too Much Of Your Spirit Guides?

Question from a reader:

“As I navigate down my spiritual path, I’ll ask for signs to help me through some unclear paths. However, I wonder about the possibility of asking for too many signs. As if asking for signs for the “same thing,” feels like it could be self-involved or seeking praise. Is there such a thing as asking for too much from our spiritual guides?”

The Purpose of The Ego

The Purpose of The Ego

Question from a reader: “I’ve been considering writing a blog for over 5 years. One of the largest questions I ask is: what makes what I have to say so special that warrants a blog. This concern feels like what you describe as the (spiritual) “ego” but I’m also curious about the role of the ego in terms of how society/pop culture use the term. So my question is: what is the role/relationship of (pop culture) ego with (spiritual) ego?”

Discerning Between Your Head and Your Heart

Question from a reader: “I’m a paralegal in a high-paying job which demands long hours and lots of concentration. As much as I like connecting the dots and solving puzzles, most of the time I hate the fact that it keeps me from my family and things that I love. I’m stuck, I feel like I can’t leave because this job supports my family, and at the same time I don’t feel right inside. I don’t feel like this is right for me. How do I know if this feeling is real? How do I know if I should move on? And if so, to what?”

When Your Reading Isn’t What You Expected

When Your Reading Isn’t What You Expected

Question from a reader: “I had a reading in which I talked to my higher self. At the time I really needed some serious advice and probably still do. What I got from my higher self was something I didn’t think was even close to being as important as the the things I really needed advice on or answers to. My question is why your higher self, when given the chance to give some serious answers or advice, would choose to pick a topic on something which I thought was sort of trivial in comparison to what I really wanted advice or guidance on?”

Incarnate Spirit Guides

Incarnate Spirit Guides

A follow up question from yesterday:
“Ashley, could you please more fully explain your statement that begins ” A handful of my own primary guides are . . .”? What do you mean by “identities”? Specifically, are they separate from their identities that are now incarnate? I would very much like to know who are my guides and who that I know in this lifetime is in my soul group. That is why I find the above referenced statement so intriguing!”

Question from a reader: “The local medium in my ghost hunters group always takes over the conversation and everything is about her. I have come to her for private classes where we talk about my life and what lessons I want to learn for five minutes then she asks me to help her organize her house! Lately, I have caught her on three different occasions taking credit on things I received on investigations with our ghost hunting team. She has gathered some more “followers” and they all seem to be in “awe” of her. Have you ever encountered someone like this in your life?”

Self-Love Is Not Selfishness

Question from a reader:

“For some reason, my quiet soul draws strong, demanding people in my life! It seems they only want me around when they need something from me.

My question is how to not attract people like this in the first place and what do I do with the ones I have in my life right now? Thank you!”

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?”

The Difference Between Venting and Releasing Emotion

The Difference Between Venting and Releasing Emotion

Question from a reader: “When someone else says, ‘I need to vent,’ or ‘I need to get this off my chest,’ – Do you think/feel it’s good for those involved in that conversation? I personally don’t agree with that type of discussion, avoiding those who really LOVE to vent. It appears those who do that are looking for others to share in the dense energy they’ve created out of their own ‘situation.’ Any other thoughts on this subject?”

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?”

How and Why Should We Evolve?

How and Why Should We Evolve?

Question from a reader: “My question is not about the physical experience; I got that covered. Rather, I’m more interested in how and why we should evolve.

I understand there is the combining of knowledge (spiritual side) with experience (physical side) and that completes a needed segment…but what about evolution and ascension?”

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.

The Influence of the Past on Present Behavior

Question from a reader: I am wondering about the events and teachings from early childhood that effect our later behavior.
