March spiritual messages from the beyond

Synchronicity Given Meaning by Connections I was speaking with a friend who had recently suffered a familial loss. She described many coincidences that she’s experienced since her beloved’s death and, as I explained, this is because synchronicity, like dreams, is given meaning by the connections that we make internally to an external event. After carefully examining photographs, she noticed numbers appearing in places she hadn’t observed before.  In one instance, she noticed a long str

February Soulmates and Anniversary

February is the month of the Ace of Wands in the Tarot. Like all the Aces, it’s the promise of a new beginning and a gift. This Ace brings gifts like passion, courage and energy. The blessing/mantra for this Ace is, “May the divine spark within, set your heart on fire”. Our special day is on the 16th of this month. It marks our 34th anniversary.  We were married at 5 PM in Victoria Park here in Kitchener.  Our wedding party was entertained by the full moon shining brightly in a frozen, glea

Jolly, Jolly. Not So Much.

Jolly, Jolly. Not So Much For many people, the December holidays are a painful headache of sad memories, pressure, anxiety, and dread.  That feeling cancels out potentially more pleasurable ones like, joy, charity, and renewal. The holiday season represents the perfect opportunity to practice tried and tested stress-reducing intentional practices, we know we should do.  But frustratingly ignore when we need them the most!  Typically, people drink and eat too much, stay up late, and put off

Tarot Readings' Role in Changing Times

The Oracle’s Necessity During Troubled Times All divination tools like the Tarot, reveal something hidden and cannot access through any other avenue. The usefulness of that information, however, depends on the central values prescribed by that magical system.  The Tarot deck proposes a cosmic philosophy which describes and prescribes the evolution of human consciousness.  Shuffling the cards brings these magical values into play in a random depiction that tells us something about your story

Psychic Ability Zener Cards Pendulum

“Developing Your Psychic Ability” Classes Several years ago, I taught classes to small groups on growing/honing your psychic ability along with several other esoteric/psych courses, such as, how to interpret your dreams and reading the Tarot for self & others. During the first hour of each class, I lectured on a divination tool and the psychic ability that was supported and flourished, using that tool.  The second hour involved a psychic practice exercise both for development and unders

Psychic Readings and Psychotherapy Part II

Consulting a Psychic or a Psychotherapist? This is a continuation of the first and very popular article I wrote on this subject in ’20. For many years I had a private counselling practice which included individual clients, couples and groups, for various life afflictions, such as, addictions, mourning, depression, relationship breakdowns and career crisis. I loved the work, but I often believed it was far from a perfect model for helping people discover and pursue their rightful life path

Knowing when someone is going to die

I am occasionally asked when someone is going to die.  It might be themselves, or someone (pets too) close to them and not always is this question fear based.  If you’ve been hanging out on earth for a while, you know there are more painful experiences to suffer than passing to spirit.  I’ve known intuitively when someone is approaching the end of their physical journey, and likely more often than I can recall.  I seldom reveal the details of this intuition however, and never if the person is as

August is the month of Leo

August is the Astrological Sign Leo and the Strength Tarot Card The authentic personal power accessible to us when we balance self-discipline and self-awareness are evident in the Strength card which is the Tarot card for August.  To grasp the meaning of this card, Pamela Coleman Smith under Waite’s strict direction, painted a young woman opening the mouth of a male lion and bending forward looking down on its head. She symbolizes bravery, loving focus and confidence. The lion looks up at

Nightmares can be predictive

Nightmares May Be Psychic Warnings Everyone has nightmares.  Being chased and terrorized, falling into a bottomless abyss, seeing a reflection of ourselves and our appearance has transformed alarmingly. We may witness a terrifying event, such as, a loved disappearing or transforming into someone else or something unrecognizable.  We may be in the doctor’s office absorbing some traumatic diagnosis and prognosis. Sometimes the nightmare is more about our reaction to the events in the dream. W

Following Souls Purpose June

How Can We Be Sure We’re Acting Soulfully? We know we’re in our soul-space when we feel overwhelmed with emotion.  Tearfully, trembling and daring, we stumble to find the words to express it. Verbiage is ludicrously puny. We might reach for a book of poetry or turn on a tune that expresses the feeling. Feelings evoked while gazing at an object of stunning beauty, listening to a rousing piece of music, contemplating a natural wonder, or witnessing something wonderful happen to someone

Psychic consult versus psychotherapy

Why a Psychic Consult is More Effective than Psychotherapy This a comparison I have pondered since I switched from being one to the other. I had a counselling practice for many years. Individual clients (and sometimes couples and groups) for various afflictions, such as, addictions, mourning and depression, family and partner conflicts, career disappointment and confusion were a few of the issues typically presented. I loved the work, but I always felt it was far from a perfect model f

Enlightenment is hard work

“Enlightenment is a destructive process.  It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier.  Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth.  It’s seeing through the façade of pretense.  It’s the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true.” Consider Adyashanti’s wise words and set your intentions to make this next month one of balance, right purpose and commitment. Aiming for best practices in all aspects of our lives is simple and painful. But it is spiritually nec

A season of anticipation and dread

December is a month for nostalgia, isn’t it?  Not that I need nudging in that direction these days.  Aging presents us with an ever increasing, reminiscing mind that can and often does, trot down the lanes of olden days. Some memories hold a delightful promise of pleasure, joy and anticipation.  Others not so much. My memories of holiday seasons are equally balanced between joy and dread.  I’m sure that’s true for many, at least for most I speak with at this time of year.  The visuals of sp

Tarot Teachings of Embodiment Perogatives

The tarot deck comprises a series of images which were created to depict and describe our Soul's journey to realization, knowledge and wisdom. The images are sequential, symbolic and dream-like. The sequence is both descriptive and prescriptive. The more you study and comprehend the tarot, the more skeptical you become that it was simply a deck of cards designed for playing and gambling.  The fact that no one knows who created it and for what purpose, should delight even the most blasé among us.

What Needs to Happen Before We Believe We’re Psychic?

Everyone has had at least one psychic experience that left them in awe.  You may have dreamed an event before it happened in your waking life. Upon hearing the phone ring, you knew who was on the other end despite not having spoken to them for ages.  You keep thinking about someone whom you then randomly bump into. There are, however, several ways in which psychic ability shows up and typically we have a stronger power in one over another. Some people are extraordinarily gifted and can see and f

Spiritual Bargaining in the Throes of Heartbreak

There is a theory that, on average, we fall in love with three people in our lifetime.  We may like a lot of people, but there are the few that mark us, change us, and consume us.  When one of these power relationships collapses, heartbroken clients ask, “Why can’t I get over them?”  Age, sex, cultural heritage, religion, professions all melt away to irrelevance in the face of love heartbreak. It’s an equal opportunity malady. “ I dream about them, worry about their welfare, and continue to

Skepticism at its best and worst

Working in a Profession that Excites the Skeptic My work apparently invites a dearth of skeptical reactions – typically.  To be fair, less often these days than it did in the past. Less often for me because I’ve developed strategies to work with them.  The most effective one I use the most often is simply to submit a refund immediately to someone who pronounces themselves a “skeptic”.  You would be amazed at how persistent skeptics can become to get a reading once they have realized I’ve su

Spring & Spirit is in the Air

There is a lot of metaphysical nonsense that passes for spiritual wisdom. New age books, so-called gurus and of course the internet, are replete with how-to’s on becoming a spiritual healer, medium, or garden-variety psychic.  Before launching yourself on this spiritual journey of exploration, first you should ask, “Who is sharing here?” Credible folk?  Souls who have passed onto the spirit world?  The divine? A wise woman described it as a pot of spiritual gold that we can all tap into, e

Fate: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Loved or Cursed Most of us are discombobulated by the notion of fate.  Some declare they don’t believe in it.  That is, until something extraordinary happens – good or bad.  We like to believe that we are manifest destiny, but what do we mean when we say something was fated to be?  We were at the right place at the right time, and it did seem as though we weren’t in control of that timing or placement. “I was on my way out when something happened to stop me.” “A traffic accident m

Gratitude as a Spiritual Path

It’s my birthday this month. I’ve witnessed since crossing the 60’s threshold 7 years ago, that my wants have narrowed and my feelings of reverence and gratitude have grown.  I’m healthy, independent and capable. What more can a woman ask for at any age?  It’s declared that we return to a childlike state as we gallop into old age. This is an unfoldment I witness in myself that delights and often catches me by surprise. As often as I possibly can throughout the year, I climb onto my e-steed

Libra and the Tarot card Justice

October and May are my two favourite, transitional months of the year. October is the time of Libra and the Justice Tarot card. Librans are Not Perfect Despite What They Want You to Believe Librans have a refined sense of justice which gets translated into decisions and choices not driven by passion, but rather by the cool-headed, intellectual, balanced, logical, and objective position they are capable of when at their highest and best. Not surprisingly, a disproportionate number of Li

Symbols vs signs

Spiritual Guidance & the Language of Symbols The most evolved guides in the celestial realm, communicate using the language of symbols. To glean the full benefit of spiritual guidance being downloaded to you continuously from the celestial kingdom, make universal, archetypal and personal symbols an ongoing study discipline. Symbols are different from signs. Signs have a singular meaning whereas a symbol has many. A STOP road sign for example, has one meaning but the number 9 as a s

July, Astrological Sign Cancer and the Tarot Moon Card

A curious and balanced mix of creative and organized, Cancerians are the ones you call upon when you’re thinking about renovating/decorating your home or need some motivational inspiration. They inhabit homes you never want to leave. As you look around, so many fascinations to snag your attention. Symmetry at every glance but not so matchy, matchy that it looks like a Martha Stewart catalogue. Unique, homey, creative, cozy, lush typically describe their hearth and home which is important to them

Learning to read the Tarot

After teaching Introductory and Intermediate tarot classes for several years, I was asked by the keener students to prepare and deliver an advanced program. I formatted an advanced level into twelve all-day workshops. Completion of the twelve led to Certification as Tarot Master (CTM) recognized by certifying bodies in Canada and the US. The topics covered in these workshops were a deep dive into reading for more complex client questions such as health, relationships, and spiritual directio
