Earth: The PAIN School

,

I started experimenting with channelling this year, and have had some interesting experiences with ascended masters and also ANGELS! It’s so amazing and interesting to receive information in this way – different from when you’re looking at things clairvoyantly.

The other day when I was meditating, the Masters started talking about hope. They said that Earth is a PAIN SCHOOL which made me laugh because while we all know Earth is a school, I’ve never heard it put that way, like it’s a pain school where everyone has to learn how to deal with physical or emotional pain. And hope is one thing that helps you trust that the pain won’t last forever.

From my own personal experience and from working with tons of people in sessions, it seems that hope is this magical feeling that gets us through the worst of times. Yes, everything may be falling apart and life may be upside down and tragic, but if you have hope, you know things will change, and it keeps you going. It’s like gas in your car. Hope will get you to the next place.

But talking about how great hope is is one thing; trying to rally and muster it up when you’re feeling hopeless is another thing altogether. So here are some things that will help get it back:

1. Keep everything super simple and uncomplicated
2. Do everything one thing at a time
3. Look for one thing you can admire or appreciate whenever you think about it
4. Do NOT think too much
5. Meditate and pray and ask for miracles, for signs, and for hope
6. Trust that things can change in an instant
7. Practice extreme self-care
8. Volunteer
9. Get outside
10. Talk to someone loving and compassionate

The minute you realize you feel hopeless, you have an opportunity to work on that feeling and to turn it around. It may take an hour, or a day, or a few months, but it will transform.

When I first started doing readings, I had a lot of moments of doubt. I was like, who am I to do this and should I even be DOING this? I thought maybe I should go back to the corporate world and keep it normal. And you know what’s funny? Every time I was in that desperate OMG place, guess who would call me for a reading? A woman named HOPE. Without fail, Hope would call, and we’d do a session, and sometimes when I would do a healing on her over the phone the lights would flicker on and off because the energy was so powerful. I’ll never forget Hope, who transitioned from Pain School to the other side last year. I know she is happy.

Hope is the flame that sparks the fire of positive change. If you have hope, miracles can and will happen. And the thing about the universe is that change is constant; things are never in a state of homeostasis. So that’s encouraging too, right!?

Wishing you all the HAPPIEST of HOLIDAYS and sending you so much love and light!


Sorry about the weird lighting in this video! I am not a pro at this, and re-recorded it a few times and then monkeyed with it in iMovie and then just said to heck with it, I love the dress and I think I said what I was trying to say. Hopefully the light will be better next time.

So, on to the topic! If you are learning how to be psychic and clairvoyant or just more intuitive, at some point or another you will probably do readings for others. Typically, it starts with you doing readings for supportive friends and family and maybe co-workers. Then, if you want to do more, you might launch out and do readings for (EEK!) strangers.

Regardless of who you’re being intuitive for, here is a HUGE tip regarding this:

You can’t rely on the person you’re reading to give you accurate and reliable information regarding whether or not what you are picking up on is correct.

That might sound nuts, but it’s true! There are many people who will be wonderful, and so supportive, and totally tuned in and really on the same wavelength as you. The readings you do with them will be out of this world.

But there will also be other people who are either lost, confused, or in a different kind of space, one in which they can’t validate what you are saying at the present moment or give you feedback.

That’s why, in most psychic schools and intuitive development training programs like the one I do, the person getting the reading is not allowed to give feedback to the reader until the very end.

Of course, as a reader, you want to know if you’re on point or not. Who wouldn’t!? And if you are drawn to do this work in some form or another, there is a reason for it, no matter how challenging it might be to venture out and do readings for others. I’m just bringing this up for you right now so that you know, some people won’t get what you are saying until weeks, months, or years later (if ever). And if you are sojourning into the future to see what you can pick up about what might happen, you can’t rely on every person to remember what you said, to recognize it when it happens, and then to report back to you after the fact.

Doing readings is an amazing way to help others, to connect to universal guidance for yourself, and to help raise your consciousness. In the end, it’s not so much about right or wrong or predicting this or that or the other. That’s where a lot of people misunderstand the intuitive process. In the highest form, a reading will offer clarity, support, healing (clairvoyant readings in their purest form are simultaneous energy healings), and love. It will help people understand things, and it will help them to heal and to feel better about life.

So whether you’re playing with friends and family and yourself, or venturing into doing readings as a pro, just remember this and it will definitely help!

And here’s another easy tip: just keep practicing and playing with yourself and your supportive friends and family, and you will find that you will become more and more psychic and intuitive the more you do it. Make it FUN and playful! And keep notes, and let yourself be amazed and inspired by your insights. I guarantee you, you can’t go wrong with this if you keep at it!


If you have ever struggled with ANYTHING in your life – be it being single, or constantly dating the wrong type of person, or not finding your purpose in life, or struggling with money – you have likely asked yourself, “Is it just my FATE to go through this?”

And you know, to a certain degree, yes, it is. By the time you’re asking, is this my FATE?!?, fate has officially made her presence known.

Fate does exist. And many of us struggle with things we would really rather not have to struggle with. Why? Because there’s a code in place. You can hack the code, you can change the code, you can re-write the code – but there is always a code.

The code serves as the foundation of your life. If you didn’t come into life with a code, some sort of structure, there would be no order to anything at all. You wouldn’t know what lessons you were here to learn. There wouldn’t be any meaning to anything.

What if it’s Your Fate to be Single?

I focused this video on the idea of whether or not it’s your fate or destiny to be single because someone lovely specifically asked me:

“Do you think there are certain people out there just searching and searching, but not finding anyone because perhaps it’s their fate to be alone?”

Good question, right?! Every person is different, so maybe there are people out there with that fate. However, if you are struggling with being single and NOT WANTING TO BE, that NOT WANTING is a sign that this is something your spirit really really really desires to work on and transform in your lifetime.

Anything that you’re really having a hard time with is something that invites you to look at your core beliefs more deeply and to heal destructive patterns, whether they are conscious, subconscious, ancestral, past-life related, or anything else.

The energy of not finding someone wonderful to be with, and being single, is directly related to love. So if you’re dealing with that and thinking about how fate might have dealt you an unfair hand in that department, you have a specific invitation from Source to delve into and heal your core beliefs about love.

Love is limitless, and the idea that it can be withheld is just another construct of the human condition. It’s a fear picture that is not REAL. Why should you withhold love from yourself? Why would you think anyone would withhold love from you? Just because you experienced a withholding of love in the past does not mean that that’s how it’s always going to be.

Once you open up to more love, you break the code and end the cycle and pattern that keeps you attracting the wrong person, or nobody at all. Have you noticed that your reality matches your vibration? You won’t even be magnetizing in people who are afraid to love you. It will all change.

We all have a code, but that code can be hacked by changing your beliefs around the struggle, and by healing your vibration so that everything in turn shifts. And that healing work is FUN!!!!!!! It is meant to be enjoyed. You will feel liberated, lighter, and happier. And then you will notice things changing for the better. It might take time, but what else are you gonna do anyway!?! It’ll be time well spent. 🙂

P.S. And speaking of fate, who knows if perhaps fate has someone lined up for you in her own timeframe? I know of MANY people who thought they would never meet The One, until they did. In fact, my best friend from high school was just talking to me on the phone a few months ago, in tears, fearing that this was it: she was never, ever going to meet him. And then one day out of the blue, someone suggested she go out with this guy. And she did. And he is wonderful, and people ask them how long they’ve known each other because it seems like they’ve been together forever. They’ve only been dating for a couple of months, and they’re moving in. He has my seal of approval. 😉 Everything changed in an instant. HAPPY!!!!


Hi and Happy Thanksgiving!

Or not so happy, if you’re dreading family time like so many others this year. If you feel like you don’t fit in with your family and wonder if you are perhaps a changeling (in ancient lore, that’s a fairy baby: the fairies come in and steal the human baby and put a changeling in it’s place in the cradle), try this short test and find out:

You might possibly be a Changeling if:

1. You feel like you are from an entirely different planet than your family
2. Your parents and siblings just don’t understand or accept you or your views
3. Your family doesn’t really know who you are and they don’t seem to want to know either
4. No matter what you say to your family, it’s heard through a terrible filter
5. You feel really bad about yourself after spending time with your family

OK, all sadness aside (because that test is sad! My energy goes down every time I read it), a lot of beautiful radiant light workers like YOU really don’t connect with their families of origin, and it’s one of the most incredibly difficult and painful things for a person to deal with.

In fact, on the whole topic of fate vs. free will which I have been thinking about a lot lately, the family thing is one of those definite FATE things that happens right off the bat. Here you are, emerging into the world fresh and new and straight from source, right into the hands of…OH GOD NO, NOT THIS AGAIN!

If you feel you aren’t a part of the tribe you were born into, the truth of the matter is that this is definitely something your spirit chose to go through in order to grow and evolve. By feeling what it’s like to be misunderstood, rejected, mistreated or abandoned, your spirit is undergoing sort of like the SAT’s of spiritual evolution in the face of adversity.

How do you ace that test? By separating, healing yourself, forgiving yourself and them, and by sharing your light with people who do love and accept you. There are more healing modalities available to you than ever before, too, and so many light workers all over the planet who can help you with great love. The process should actually be fun, because doing the things you need to do to heal make you feel GOOD – great even. It’s not like you have to toil through it. You can grow with joy, with light, and with love (and a lot of self-love too, because that is essential).

If everything were easy, if you had parents that thought the world of you and siblings who were your best friends and just a perfect Norman Rockwell family…well, you’d get challenges in other areas of your life. And maybe it seems like people with great families have more support when facing those challenges, but we can’t know that for sure. Everyone’s path is unique, and you don’t know what it’s like to be in their shoes unless you ARE them.

Anyway, in the video above are some basic tips for coping with your family when you’re on the spiritual path (and you suspect you may be a fairy baby/changeling). And for the record, two of my dearest friends are downright boycotting Thanksgiving altogether – which you have every right to do if you feel so inclined.


Even though we all know the future is VERY mutable and changeable and NOT set in stone, when it comes to getting readings, it’s one of those things EVERYONE wants to take a sneak peek at. We want an idea of what’s going to happen; we want to know how things are going to turn out. We want to know who is coming and when and where and why and what it’s going to mean and how it’s going to happen.

But as much as we like to believe that we have control over things and can manifest whatever we want in life, however we want it, the sad truth is, some things are not up to us to decide. Some things are it’s just about…

FATE.

That four-letter word we don’t like to think exists (unless it’s tied to something really incredible and amazing).

How we detest the idea of fate!!! We want to be in control; we want things to go the way we want them to.

But we are all here to learn lessons, to go through things, to learn, evolve, and grow. And that means that we have to sometimes wait longer than we want for soul mates to appear. That we have to deal with similar types of situations. That it’s our fate for this to happen or for that to happen.

In the video above, I wax on a bit about fate vs. free will. What’s very intriguing to me that I’ve noticed a lot lately is that you can create different variables related to a situation, but the core lesson will still remain. For instance, you can not marry one person, and then marry another, and have a very similar type of situation occur in that relationship that would have occurred if you’d married the other person. That’s just one example – but there are billions of different potential situations this can be applied to, from the minute to the OMG that is HUGE.

Yes, we do have a certain degree of control in our lives – but we can’t control everything. And that’s where fate comes in. Maybe it’s not such a bad word after all…because who knows what would happen if there wasn’t a higher force setting the stage for life as it unfolds?


If you’re reading this, you are someone who has done or is doing a lot of work on yourself – as am I. So you know what I’m talking about when I say that a) sometimes it can feel arduous and b) it’s supposed to be FUN.

We tend to forget the fun part – how good it’s supposed to feel when we’re “working” on ourselves. But in order for improvement to really be effective, it helps to love the process. Which means, we get to listen to music we love. To run and play and do things we love to do, things that make us feel good while we’re doing them and make us feel even better afterwards.

I have seen first hand how the light conquers the dark. And believe you me when I tell you, light wins with laughter (and I’m not talking Sunday School squeaky clean humor here either). Light wins with music – even rap music and dance music. Light wins with celebrating life, with love and gratitude and giving back and praying and meditating, in a way that’s real and flows authentically.

All of the work we do on ourselves is essentially an attempt to bring out the divine in us so we can get through this dark, dense earth plane (well, the human aspect of it) and transform it into more light while we’re here. We are divine beings just having a human experience for now.

So let’s have fun with it!!!!!


It’s crazy times in the world right now. I suppose it always has been. But in any event, when the going gets tough…it’s TIME TO CALL IN THE ANGELS.

I love working with angels, and when you call on them, there is no doubt about it – they answer. They provide comfort, hope, healing, upliftment…and they give signs, too. It’s easy for them.

The more you intend to work with angels, the more they come through.

And so here are two really easy and powerful ways to call in the archangels when you need them. They are super simple, but incredibly comforting.

We don’t have to do this alone…there is support all around us. All we have to do is ask.

 

 


Spiritual Superiority!?!

,

The idea of what I’ll call Spiritual Superiority came onto my radar recently.

Basically, it’s the notion that spiritual teachers are better than other people. It’s like the spiritual equivalent of capitalism. There are some spiritual teachers who have a vested interest in having their followers think they have it all figured out.

And with the advent of social media, they are able to craft an image of themselves that shows the world that they are happy, successful, and “on point” with what they are doing. To my psychic eye, however, some of what I see on social media conveys an almost narcissistic need to be idolized. It reminds me of what they say about psychiatrists being the people who need the most work of all!!

If you’re on the spiritual path, I’ll say this first and foremost: beware of any spiritual teacher who tells you that you have to work with them, or or that they (and only they) know they way. Beware of any techniques that seem manipulative or coercive. And beware of anything that resembles even borderline cult-y.

The best spiritual teachers will encourage you to follow your own path and to see the light within you. You are a spark of the divine, and you possess everything you need in order to heal and grow.

The ideal teacher is really just a catalyst, plain and simple.

Because a lot of my work is about intuition, I would say you can also follow your own intuition to discover if a teacher or spiritual leader is the right person for you. I have found some to be straight up shady. I have also found some to be so incredibly wonderful, honest, and truthful that just thinking about them now makes my energy feel better (of late, I have been reading about Kabbalah by Rabbi David Cooper, who my Angel Healer friend Marjetka Novak told me about). I also love Colette Baron-Reid, Sanaya Roman and Orin, Youtube’s Gigi Young who has beautiful energy, and my dear friend, author and clairvoyant Debra Lynne Katz, who has helped me heal and grow so much.

We are all here for a reason, and because some craft a strong public presence does not mean they have all the answers! They are just the same as you, trying to get through life here on earth!


The other day, someone asked me how knowing about past lives can help you heal – like what’s the point? And I thought it would make an interesting topic to chat about.

Some people do not believe in reincarnation, and we are certainly all entitled to our beliefs. There’s room for everything. I, for one, find great comfort in knowing there is a cycle to things and that the spirit lives on outside of the physical body, so I love believing in reincarnation.

From my experience personally and with clients, knowledge about past lives can help you understand where you’ve been, with whom, and why. That knowledge can help you have a deeper sense of WHO YOU ARE and what your mission is. It can help you understand why you have certain problems, why you love certain people and places, what karma/dharma you need to work on in this lifetime, and how you can do it.

Through my own personal past life healing, I have discovered much more about who I really am and the relationships I have with others. I’d love to prattle on about it all, but I don’t want to bore you. However I do just have to mention that I was thrilled to discover recently that my best friend from high school and I were twins in a past life! We both love to dress up and we still wear the same size all these years later and little thumbnail photos of me totally look like her. It all makes sense to both of us now.

If you are interested in learning more about your true spirit, the nature of your soul, and why you are here, past life work is a wonderful and FUN thing to do. And how to do it? You can start with Brain Weiss’s book, Many Lives, Many Masters. He also has another book called Only Love is Real that I like a lot, too. There are some great past life regression meditations you can do, and you can also work with a hypnotherapist to discover more. That’s how I initially discovered that my mother in this lifetime had been my brother in a past life – no wonder I always used to wish I had been a kid when she was a kid so we could have played together all day long.

On a deeper level, the first truly healing clairvoyant reading I ever had (purchased for me by my above-mentioned best friend from high school), revealed that I had been a sage in India many many years ago. Hearing that truth was like breathing deeply for the first time ever. The energy in the room literally shifted when that came through and we were all FLOORED by how powerful it was (two people were doing the reading). And that reading literally changed my life.

You are so much more than your personality in this lifetime. And knowing who you are on that deep soul level can only help you heal and grow even more.

My 4 year-old son Ivan said something profound recently:

“When people get old, they go back into heaven, and they start to get back into being a baby again. They go around and around and around.”

From the mouths of babes! LOL!


Have you ever found yourself in a negative pattern or cycle? Usually the realization that a pattern or cycle is taking effect begins with: “Why does this KEEP HAPPENING TO ME!?”

And usually these negative patterns and cycles are pretty huge and uncomfortable. From being in terrible jobs, to allowing yourself to be treated in ways you don’t want to be treated, to inadvertently attracting the wrong type of romantic partner, negative patterns and cycles are pretty painful.

The good news is, cycles and patterns can absolutely be broken (if you want them to). The secret is to become aware that a pattern exists, and to understand how and why you are creating that pattern.

From there, you can make peace with yourself and with your pattern by intense self-reflection in whatever form you’re drawn to – through spiritual development, therapy, energy healing, meditation, or any other form of deep inner work. As you know, a myriad of all kinds of therapies are available, and only you know best what will help you at certain times in your life.

Once you break a cycle or pattern, for the most part it will be DONE, however I’ve noticed that sometimes residual energy will show up, kind of like a blip on a radar, before it becomes obsolete. And if you find that does happen, you can also do more work and reflection to clear that up, too.

I’ve noticed in my work with energy healing that you don’t just focus on a problem or issue one time and heal it and make it go away forever; it’s a process, just like you don’t go to the gym one time and lift weights and expect lasting results. Inner work takes focus, determination, and dedication – but the results are beyond worth it.
