Fear....and "What you gonna do about that?"

"Of all the liars in the world, sometimes the worst are our own fears."
         - Rudyard Kipling

Sometimes you see hints of it so you know it's there but most of the time I work super hard to work THROUGH it and maybe even dissect it a little here and there to make it more beneficial and meaningful.

I know the working title of this post is a bit wordy but….

The Power of Time Travel

I've done it again.  But this time it felt really different and it changed me in a new way.


Time Travel.  Literally.  Not the kind you see in the movies with a flux capacitor and bolts of lightning on the town clock or swirls of craziness in a hot tub time machine, but the real deal kind that changes your life for realz.


Back in November I said "YES!" to the……

My Modern Day Feast of Hathor

Tonight the scene from where I sit on the porch of the church that I grew up in is much different from what it was 24 hours ago.  The streets are now quiet and the shops are all closed and the sound of locusts in the trees is all that you hear.  Last night it was different.  Last night it was as if

Time to Retreat, a.k.a. Finding Space for Magic

The Great Lakes Retreat 2018 was nothing short of incredible!  I felt so blessed to be invited back for my 3rd year of teaching and offering readings, Soul Songs, and photo sessions and I truly enjoyed spending time with my GLR family.  This retreat has been held for over 35 years and not only is it a big spiritual family reunion, it could also be called Camp for Grown-ups or an annual Pajama Party.  Either way, good times are to be found everywhere...and did I mention that I felt so blessed?!

This year the format was different but it allowed for some real magic to happen in the midst of constant motion for me.  Everything I do....I did it last week, and some of it ……………

There was this one time....in yoga class.....

Have you ever gotten completely turned around in a yoga class, or maybe just in Life in general?  Well, I'm not too proud to admit that I did and I want to share a little epiphany I had right there on my yoga mat in this week's Goddess Diaries Vlog.

Sending you so much love...no matter which direction you are facing

Independence Day...for you and for me

How was YOUR Independence Day?

I got up at 5:30 AM on July 4th to participate in a 5K walk and while on the walk I was really struck by the fact that today is Independence Day. It's powerful to realize ways in which you've unleashed your own independence, isn't it? Today might just be the day you unleash a little more.

As I walked those excruciating last 2 miles     (I really had to pee!) I walked alone. I walked independently of all that has happened to me. I walked uninhibited by the past and just kept looking forward, forward, forward.

I had grandiose plans to walk that 5K in record time, but I soon realized that was NOT going to happen, so I just kept walking, and listening, and healing all the places that needed to be healed by walking alone, in a crowd of people, on Independence Day.

MY Independence Day. Again...like my own personal Groundhog Day movie. It gets better each day.

If fear is holding you back, embrace it and bring it along for the ride.

Sending you so much love. You got this!

Prayers Whispered by Flowers

Yes, true story, Virginia....  

I came across this tiny little rose bud whispering prayers while going through my images from the weekend trip to Virginia where I was teaching a workshop and offering readings, Soul Songs, and performing a benefit concert.

It was Sunday morning and I was told about a lovely little rose garden not too far of a walk from the church where I was staying.  I truly love being outside, taking walks, listening to the sounds of Nature all around me and tuning in to any messages from the Universe that I need to hear.  I took my camera because I also love taking pictures and wanted to get some "stock" photos for my IG page that would go well with messages I wanted to share.  I took lots of pictures of the roses and really enjoyed my time in the garden.

During the church service that morning, one of the congregational songs was "In the Garden" which is one of my favorites.  As I stood there just listening to the sounds of the people singing, I began to notice the voice of the man singing behind me.  He had the most beautiful baritone and with my eyes closed I just soaked it all in.  My heart overflowed with gratitude and I felt truly blessed in that moment.

"Blessed" was the word I found on a tee shirt while walking through Target to get a tire pump to fill the flat tire I woke up to.  It felt like it was my word for the weekend, my message from the Universe, and now that I'm home, it is one that I keep repeating to my Self.  "Blessed"...yes, yes I am.

And yes, you are, too! 

Count the ways.....and tell me about it in the comments!  I'd love to hear your stories of gratitude and blessings and prayers offered in quiet gardens.

Sending you so much love....

 

 

 

 

What is a psychic medium...and how can I BE one?!

 

There's a question I get asked a lot about what it is that I do, exactly, and trying to explain it is not always easy.  Being "psychic" isn't something that I ever envisioned myself becoming but it's been a special journey through life that has been filled with so much magic that I wanted to try my best to explain what being psychic means, what a psychic medium is and what you can do to open your own intuition.

Sending you so much love....

I.Just.Can't.EVEN!!!!!

I hit Life pretty hard and on all cylinders most of the time.  Staying busy, networking, reaching out, helping others...that's what it's all about, right?  Well, last weekend I suddenly couldn't anymore.

Everything in my brain…..

Trying to Get Out of Dodge

Holy Cannoli, Batman!  

I saw a sign....I KNOW I did!  I thought it was a good one but there were hidden adventures in there.

The night before I was to leave for Egypt, I was working on the computer to get all the last minute Things wrapped up so I could really start to breathe into the trip.  That's when I saw it.  A message from

Lunar Eclipse Magic

"May you find magic where there seems to be none, light within the darkness, and pleasant company all along the way."  

I wrote this little Irish blessing inspired quote on my Facebook wall a few years ago.  It popped up in my On This Day and since I really liked it, I copied and pasted and shared it again this year.  Little did I know, the Universe was

When the Light Returns

This Winter Solstice I was once again offering readings at an annual Solstice party. The party was a little different in that everyone was more lively than in year's past and it was not a sit-down-gallery-style reading session...it was more like....

You can't make this stuff up

Ok.  Soooooo, in my last email I shared with you my Facebook post that was then said out loud in a movie later that night and that clip from Evan Almighty in which Morgan Freeman sits down with the wife to give her an answer to her prayer, remember that?  (If not, watch it HERE!!  You're welcome!) Well, this past weekend I had....

When the Universe Listens

At the beginning of the year I had a few things in mind that I wanted to accomplish and a few places that I wanted to visit to satisfy my wanderlust and yet be within driving distance.  I went to New Orleans, Chicago, Michigan and Kentucky but I also wanted to go to....

On the cusp of the eclipse....a writing

Tonight the incense and sage burn and the windows are open wide.  The sounds of the night float in on the breeze and I once again feel grounded.  Today was a long day at Psychic Fair.  Everyone must have been outside enjoying the cooler weather at the State Fair but, even though I have psychic abilities, I did not see that coming.  The day started out as usual for me on days that I do ....
