As a spiritual and open-minded person who believes in energy, auras, spirit guides, angels, intuition and the like, do you have a hard time sharing these beliefs with others? Louise, who asked me to talk about this subject, does. And I did (and still do, in new situations when people ask me what I “do”).

Coming out of the spiritual closet is a GREAT BIG DEAL. And like coming out of any closet, it helps to find a community so you can thrive and grow in a supportive space, with people who will believe in you, love you, accept you, and support you unconditionally.

When I learned how to be psychic, and then discovered I was getting kind of good at it, I totally had to come out of the closet. If you would like me to make a video or talk about just that, please let me know and I will. But after fumbling like 3 times trying to record the video above, I decided to just try and finish it with tips that will help you if you are just on the verge of coming out of that closet – or are at least seeking more like-minded friends. And so here are some of them!

Test the Waters

With friends, co-workers, and family, just ask a mild question, like “Did you hear about (some reincarnation thing, or a new book, or movie, or video, or something of the like)? What do you think about that? Do you believe in it?” If the response is positive, go further and see what happens. If it’s totally shut down and negative, move on to The Weather or something more mundane.

Go to Spiritual Places

There are tons of them in LA – mediation centers, sound baths, yoga studios, spiritual bookstores, and the like. Wherever you are, seek out the places where like-minded magical people are apt to gather, and GO THERE regularly.

Start a Book Club or Group

When I first started out, I had meetings at my home just in my living room! I made a couple of nice friends that way. If a psychic development, energy healing, or tarot group seems too “out there” for your area, try a book club, and introduce books with more spiritual, holistic, or metaphysical topics – fiction, nonfiction, or both. And then try the “test the waters” technique.

Send your Energy Out 

You can beam your energy out like the light from a lighthouse, with the intention to draw in or attract like-minded people, soulmates, and those on the same energetic bandwidth as you. Set your intention for the kind of people you want to meet, go into a short meditation, and just “beam out” your light. Do this every day for a couple of weeks. It will work!

Don’t try to Convert Anyone

Converting people doesn’t work, nor does trying to talk about things they simply can’t accept. People will open up when they are ready, and not a minute sooner.

Remember: You are a Pioneer

Life is meant to be shared with others, and if you are on this path, it is so much fun when you get to talk about your beliefs and experiences with like-minded people. Being around these people also helps you grow and evolve. As a group consciousness, all of us on earth are headed in this general direction; you, as a believer, are just at the forefront of this evolution. It’s not always easy being one of the early pioneers of a belief system/shift in consciousness, but it’s more fun than being a muggle! 😉

Thanks for reading and watching. And remember, if there’s anything if your life that you need assistance with, I’m here to help with readings, energy healings, on-demand meditations and my psychic development training program. So just reach out! 🙂

The World Needs YOU.


Happy New Year!

We are all a spark of the divine, each of us a little bright light in the world. Sometimes our light dims when we’re faced with challenging life circumstances, like pain, illness, sorrow, betrayal, and emptiness. A lot of the people who come to see me are sad. They feel lonely and misunderstood. These days, when it’s easier to find out what friends and family are up to via Facebook than it is to connect with them over the phone and in person, many people feel lost and disconnected. They catch up with one another via text, and that’s that. The responsibility to keep up, to meet face-to-face, or even to have a phone conversation, is too much of a burden. But that’s not right. It feels off, and wrong – and somewhere, if not on the surface, but deep down – we know it.

We’re not meant to be alone. If that was the case, why would God, or the Universe, have our genesis based on the merging of two people, an event that brings us into a world in which we’re immediately connected to relatives like siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandmothers and grandfathers? We start this life in the company of others, and the journey is meant to be shared.

Being part of a good, strong, supportive community is essential to the well-being of the soul. We need to see one another, to share our triumphs and sorrows, to look out for each other, to be there in good times and bad.

The next time you think of someone you love this New Year, try calling them, and leaving a message if they don’t pick up. Make more of an effort to actually connect in person, to talk, to see how friends and family are REALLY doing. Give of yourself, and expect others to give back. If they don’t, you don’t have to keep pushing – just know that now is not the right time, and continue to seek love and acceptance in other relationships.

People out there really, truly love you, and want you to be a part of their lives.

Ivan has a book called On the Night You Were Born:

“On the night you were born,
the moon smiled with such wonder
that the stars peeked in to see you
and the night wind whispered,
“Life will never be the same.”

Because there had never been anyone like you…
ever in the world.”

Share your beauty, and your light, and your love. We need you. The world needs you.

Sending you lots and lots of love, and best wishes for a wonderful 2014!
