Forgiveness Begins With Self First

The subject ~ forgiveness is a touchy one.  When we are hurt and in pain, our reactions
and emotions are triggered by the pain. We may not think or act as we normally would.
We are all human, all in the same boat, and have all opened ourselves up to being hurt by others or even by ourselves.
It is more difficult to forgive others if we have not learned how to properly and completely forgive ourselves for our decisions and actions from our past experiences.
We have many negative thought patterns and beliefs based upon the areas in our lives where we feel we have made mistakes and where we have many regrets.
Most of this beating up on self is unconscious. It begins by not sleeping at night, it then may turn into some bad eating habits, then maybe negative self talk, doubting your ability to see clearly or make sound decisions, then becoming very negative with all situations not being able to see light at the end of the tunnel.
My advice? Beginning right now be the observer of your behavior ~ your thoughts, words and deeds. Is there an underlying theme of self-sabotage and negativity?
Why not start writing down what you observe about yourself and then draw a family tree-like diagram and track back to where the thoughts and actions stemmed from.
I can guarantee you will find that you are disappointed in yourself about a decision you made a while back where you wished you may have made another decision and taken a different action.
Everything, I mean everything that manifests and happens in our lives is purposeful! Even where we experience pain. I have said it many, many times ~ we are here to learn by overcoming difficulties and negative patterns within ourselves. 
When we really do understand that all is purposeful ~ happiness, pain, joy, celebration and disappointment. The soul is invincible. What comes it's way it is able to handle and move through disappointment and pain, even if you aren't able to see the solution right away.
Here is an excellent affirmation ~ I completely forgive myself for actions, words and thoughts that I feel I have made mistakes, hurt others and hurt myself. I am human, I am light and I am here to grow and evolve my soul. I will learn from my "mistakes" and make an effort to heal myself in the places that I know I struggle.
So be it amen.
When you begin to be more loving and forgiving of yourself, it will be easier to forgive others in your life.

Blessings and Light,

The Higher Self

Most people are familiar with the term "Higher Self". On the other hand, I know there are some who aren't quite sure what this is and or haven't heard of the Higher Self.

The Higher Self is you! It is your higher consciousness a more evolved state of being (vibration). 

The Higher Self communicates to you through hunches, dreams, thoughts, meditations, channeling, emotions, and is the loving guiding voice that helps you navigate through life. The relationship with your inner wise self is the most important relationship in your life. 
The Higher Self's job:

  • To keep you connected to your spirit 
  • Make sure you stay on track with your life's purposes
  • Guide you throughout your life
  • Bring through messages from your angels, crossed over loved ones, guides 
  • Protect you from negative influences and environments
  • To help you heal 
  • Help you remember who you are and where you come from ~ The Light
I strongly advise my clients to take the time and to make the effort to create a filter with the Higher Self for any and all information psychically to be brought through the Higher Self so that you can trust what is coming through. If you do not go through the Higher Self you can be sure not all of the messages and visitors may not be of the most loving and of a higher consciousness.

How to create a filter with the Higher Self:
  • Create sacred space by clearing a room by saging, bringing your angels, gridding a room. You can also go outside where you have a private space where you will not be disturbed
  • You can also call in the 4 Watchtower angels (Raphael, Michael, Gabrielle and Uriel) for sealing the space
  • Take a couple of deep and cleansing breaths
  • Either out loud or in your mind say the following intention or one similar to this one "It is my intention to be connected to my Higher Self throughout my daily activities. Any and all psychic information is to be filtered through my Higher Self. I  request any visitors ~ guides, angels, crossed over loved ones all be filtered through my Higher Self. So be it, thank you." 
It really is this simple. Not many people are aware that there is energy out there that is not really good for us that is trying to get through. This simple and important connection is the most secure way of bringing through guidance and wisdom. 

There are many great books and meditation CDs out there that can help you connect with the Higher Self. If you haven't read or used the Higher Self Meditation in my book "Psychic Development 101", I suggest you take the time for this meditation, it is worth it! 

Blessings and Light,

How To Get The Most Information Out of Your Psychic Reading

A reading is just a reading and all depends upon the skills of the person reading you right? Well, not necessarily so... 

I agree that there are some psychics who are more in tune with their abilities, who have a lot training and experience under their belt, who do receive information from higher and more evolved planes of existence than other psychics, but...the process is a three way connection - the reader, the client and from where the reader receives the information (higher self, guides, intuition)  

If you go into a reading not in a neutral and balanced state, this does effect your session. If you go into your session wanting the reader to prove every piece of information they are sharing, then you are not necessarily going into your session with an open mind.
If you aren't comfortable then maybe you should cancel your session.

Here are some tips on how to get the most out of your session:

  • Be on time. I as well as many readers follow a tight schedule. If you are going to be late call ahead or reschedule your session. 
  • Prepare questions ahead of time as well as areas in your life you would like to discuss.
  • Absolutely do not show up for your session under the influence of any mind-altering substances.
  • Say a prayer before you go into your session to help open up your channels or even do a simple chakra balancing meditation in the car.
  • When information comes through and it does not make sense, write it down. 9 times out of 10 my clients either email me or call me afterwards to validate the information coming through.
  • When you say NO, NO that isn't right, that often shuts down the channels of information for you, the psychic and the channel of information coming through.
  • If after 10 minutes the information is not making any connection for you ask to end the session. An authentic and professional reader will honor this, often requesting to end the session without any charge.
  • Only go to readers  you feel a connection with or via a solid referral.
  • If you wish to record the session ask ahead if you may bring a recorder or if the reader records the session.
  • When your reading begins, trust your own gut feelings. If you have a warm and good feeling, continue with your session being open to the guidance. If you do not feel comfortable, you have every right to end your session. Again, if this is an authentic reader they will already have felt this and will send you on your way free of charge. When scheduling it may be a good idea to ask these questions ahead of time when you are setting up your session.
A reading is a good way to touch base when you are at a crossroads, feeling a little stagnant and or are searching for another perspective. I do recommend trying to solve problems on your own first. It is easy for many to become addicted to readings, this is why I encourage clients to space out their sessions. A reading session is in no way meant to replace counseling or therapy when needed and often I do suggestion either seeing a therapist and or counselor to help with some areas of concern.

Remember your participation is 1/3  of the whole when it comes to receiving an awesome session vs. an okay session.

Blessings and Light,
