Are you feeling scattered and forgetful, having trouble communicating and getting your voice heard, missing appointments or double booking yourself, experiencing technical glitches? You’re not alone. According to astrology every few months we experience a phenomenon known as Mercury Retrograde. I know whenever I mention it to someone new I get the same deer in headlights look. “Mercury what?” And without going into too much detail I tell them it’s when the planet Mercury turns everything topsy-turvy. I advise them to just ride the wave and not to worry because things will return to normal in a few weeks. But we can do more than ride it out, we can turn it to our advantage if we know how.
I wanted to share a story, an example, of how mediumship is amplified when the recipient takes the time to start the dialogue and communication before a reading begins.
I recently gave a reading to a woman who was hoping to connect with her brother. From the moment I sat down I could feel his energy surging through me and I was ready to get started. With any mediumship reading, both the medium and the spirit are working together by raising the medium’s vibration and lowering the spirit’s vibration, to make the communication as clear as possible. Of course, every Spirit is different and so therefore every communication from Spirit is different. Using this example, I wanted to share some tips on how to get the most out of your reading.
I’d like to share a manifestation ritual that I’ve made my New Year’s tradition; it’s a burning bowl ceremony. We usually perform it on New Year’s Eve but it can certainly be done other days of the year. It’s a way to let go of all things negative that we hold onto — and burn them away. It’s also a way to manifest things into your life by taking a moment of self reflection and putting thought and energy into what you really want for yourself. It is unapologetic and it is your own personal almanac to release into the realm of possibilities. To prepare yourself for this you need to ask yourself “What would I like to release going into 2017? What would I like to create in 2017?”
I want to talk about Santa Claus. I know that might sound silly and I know that Christmas has many aspects to it. It has its roots in medieval paganism, Christianity, and more recently secular commercialism. But there is something pretty profound that I have come to realize about the man in the red suit. He is real on some level. Don’t read this to your kids though, as I want to delve into the real and unreal about him.
Have you ever wondered why you feel so connected to the people in your life, even those you don’t like all that much? It all comes down to energy. In any relationship, romantic or otherwise, there’s an underlying energy that connects us all. This can be an amazing, often euphoric experience between two people when they are open, unassuming, and unblocked with their energy. But on the flip side of this, shared energy can negatively affect you when someone else is in a dark or unhealthy place. It could be a family member, a friend, or even a co-worker.
Spirit likes to communicate with you. Spirit wants to communicate with you. But that communication from the other side usually is not an in-your-face kind of statement. It’s subtle. Always there, always right in front of you, but subtle. And it’s up to you to open your mind and heart so you can recognize it, acknowledge it, and absorb the peace and love that it can provide.
Let’s be honest, contracts are usually boring legal jargon that most people don’t read, but they are necessary. Why? Because they hold us accountable to something or someone. They matter. Terms get decided, agreed upon, and our signature binds us to an agreement with someone else and ourselves. It is that agreement with ourselves that is often the easiest to break but with the most dire consequences. It is in that choice, that freedom, that we learn how much power we truly have over our own destiny.
