Do Crystals Really Work?

Hi everyone. I hope you’ve been happy and healthy. All is fine with me. I’ve been very, very busy, mostly doing tons of psychic readings and trying to concentrate on my job and my Art. ( Most know I can’t stay still very long.) I’m also pounding pavement, looking for a new publisher for a new novel.

So, traditionally, I’ve been skeptical of certain areas of metaphysics, particularly different crystals. Different stones, according to the powers that be, have different properties. Some heal, some correct energy and some help increase intuitive ability. I used to be a skeptic….but not any more.

I do admit that I thought about crystals for a long time. Crystals are used to conduct electricity in radios and computers, so why not for the human body? I still was not convinced.

I did have an episode that made me wonder, though. It happened a couple of years ago. I was reading at a store, and was wearing a magnet and Aqua Aura. I thought not nothing about it. The properties of Aqua Aura are to help raise your vibrations.  Two of my psychic friends asked what they had around my neck.  I thought nothing of it, and I answered.  They told me that there was so much energy being given off, that I was blinding them.  Now two different people who did not even know each other said this.  Hmmmmm.  Must be something to it.

As a reader, I have always worn crystals.  I also put crystals on my table in from of myself. I was taught that the negative energy from a person that I was reading for would go into the crystals. I also wear them around my neck, wrists, and hands. (I’m careful to not wear too many different ones, one stone can sometimes negate another, but that’s another blog!) I wasn’t sure, but did it anyways. I always doubted it, but I sort of believed it.  Above it actually my proof.

Above is my aura during a reading session.  Picture 1 is infused with green(that means healing), as well as a little white blue aura, which means spirituality, and angelic assistance.  This first picture is WITHOUT my aqua aura on; number two is WITH my aqua aura on.  On picture 2, nearly the whole entire photo is filled with blue-white energy.  Auqua auras are supposed to help with spirituality and increase psychic abilities.  There was my proof.  Yes, they do work!

So for all of you who read or do energy work, yes, the stones works.  There is actual proof. All stones are different;  just as we humans are.  I prefer Aqua Aura, Jet, Turquoise, Smokey Quartz, Shungite and Rose Quartz.  These seem to be my stones.  Your stones may be different.  There are many, many, stones out there.  Find which works for you! I will be blogging soon about stones and their properties.  Do you have an experience with stones?  Send me a message, I’d love to hear from you!

Cutting People out of Your Life as an Empath

20181119_072420-3.jpg

Good day all of my readers!  I’ve been busy gardening, trying to catch up with my farm chores, so my newest blog is a little late.  Sorry, but between that and my granddaughter who was sick, it kinda got me backed up!

Anyone who knows me, knows that I write because not only do I love to write, but because I feel I’d like to share some of my wisdom with you.  I wish I had a mentor when I was younger, who could’ve helped me and my empathic issues.  It would’ve made a big difference in me and some of my life choices.  I hope that I can be of service to you.  Also, feel free to comment or send me an email.  I am sill learning, and I like to hear about other people’s experiences!

So…….to make a long story short, I’ve been going through some tough crap lately.  My granddaughter got very ill(By-the-way, thanks for all of your support.  She is better, but they may still have to operate.  Please keep praying!  You know it works!), and I was besides myself with worry.  Anyways, I have a good friend(at least I THOUGHT she was), who called me often to talk to me about her problems. I sometimes told her about mine, but thinking back, it was very one-sided. And when I thought about it, it always had been a one-sided relationship.  That’s when I finally decided to cut her loose.

It’s funny how sudden chaos in your life can reveal your true friends.  It seems to me that most people aren’t supportive, or only supportive as long as it suit their needs.  I have learned, that in this world, there are two kinds of people; givers and takers.  The problem as an empath is that we are givers.  It is a part of who we are.  I’ve had so many takers in my life, I don’t know where to even start.

Here’s the biggest issue that we empaths have trouble with;  cutting people out of our lives.  Since we want to help and can feel what these people are feeling, it’s really really hard to let go.  I know that when I hurt someone, I can feel their pain, so instead of taking care of myself, I let people stay in my life, often hurting me and depleting me of all of my energy.

Case in point.   I really needed someone to talk to.  So I called a couple of friends.  Both completely blew me off, not even listening to a word I said.  Now I cannot even recall how many times that these people called me with their problems, where I sat for hours listening. (You know no one really wants help, they just want to vent.  So I just lend an ear.)  There is something to be said about most Empaths;  we are loyal and caring.  We would give our shirts off our back.  But there is also a time to cut people loose who just take and take.  I was told one time by a wise person who commented; There are two people in this world; Givers and Takers.”  And it’s very true.  We as Empaths are almost always the givers, and we get used and used, and used, and used, and………………..

Until WE stop the cycle.  We can still offer our gifts without letting people take advantage of us.  There is nothing wrong with cutting people out who are sucking you dry, including family members.  we need to take care of ourselves.  How can we be of service to the world if we are constantly sucked dry?  It’s one thing to help someone who can balance out the Karma;  it’s another thing to have someone take, and take, and take.

I think my problems stem from wanting to belong so badly in my childhood.  I put up with anything as long as I had people who approved of me.  It’s a growth thing.  I also have a bad habit of not putting my foot down and letting others bully me.  And I also don’t like confrontation.  But I am learning.  I recently confronted someone and won an argument and felt very empowered.  I always try to not hurt other’s feelings, because I can feel how bad I’ve made them feel.  But how bad have they made ME feel?  Why do I think that is less important?  It’s a growth thing that we Empaths go through. So I deleted them from my Social Media, my phonebook, and my email accounts.  And you know what?  I felt bad for maybe a day, but now feel relieved.  And the funny thing is, by getting rid of my negative energy, I ATTRACTED a lot more great people.  Try this….it’s in the long run, you will benefit!

Are there people bringing you down?  BLOCK THEM! And don’t feel guilty.  Try taking care f yourself for once!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Vicious World of Psychic Egos

20190128_1543411785096485.jpg

 

 

 

Good day, devoted followers! I hope all in well in your life. I’ve had some new things happen recently that I thought I reflect upon.

There are many people that see psychic consultants, including Reiki practioners, angel readers, Tarot readers, mediums, etc.  And there are many who go to multiple readers.  There is something to be said for doing this: No, they aren’t necessarily obsessed or neurotic, nor are these people gullible. Going to a different practioner can be a great way for healing and new information and possibly a gateway to raising your vibration. Let me explain.

Just as all talents, each metaphysical gift is unique to the human who possesses it. Simply stated; every reading from a different psychic has unique and useful information. Now don’t get me wrong; several readings may overlap and even give the same info. to some extent. But it may be delivered differently, with different details. I, personally have yet to find a reading to be identical. I’ve even compared them myself, and know for a fact that each often gives me different information.  That’s where the psychic’s ego comes into play.

Since no two psychics are the same, and no two readings sre the same, there should be no jealousy among the psychic world, right? WRONG!!! One of the most back-biting and nasty circles that I’ve ever had the displeasure of being a part of, it’s metaphysical readers. Not only do most readers think they have more talent than everyone else, but they belittle and ridicule any other readers who tread into their ‘territory’. I really think some psychics truly think they have a golden cord to God that others can’t obtain. I have witnessed firsthand the viciousness, and have been on the receiving end of this negativity.

I recently found out from a client-friend that some people from one of the stores I read at were saying quite nasty things. I was hurt beyond words, and still am.

Now I’m not saying I don’t have an ego; everyone does. But  at least I’m aware my ego,  and TRY not to let it make me say negative things.

I also have a different viewpoint and not let my ego get carried away. I know that there is enough psychic business for EVERYONE. Since everyone is so different, there is no need for jealousy and backbiting. And this is where we, as clients, come in. We can help stop the viciousness. We as psychics( we all have ability!), can also put a stop to the jealousy we exude.

I recently found out from a client-friend that some people from one of the stores I read at are saying quite nasty things. I was hurt beyond words, and still am. I confronted the perpetrator, and got an awkward and half-hearted apology. Yes, I forgave them, but to trust them? NO WAY….I know it will be a repeat.

These are some things that I’ve come up with for myself that I try to remember when dealing in the metaphysical world. It helped me, maybe it can help you put a stop to the negative energy. This list applies for other psychics, but for everyday life as well.

1. Remember everyone has SOME form of ability. Yes, everyone. And everyone has the same goal: enlightenment. Help or hurt, the choice is yours. Remember there is room is the limelight for EVERYONE.

2. Refuse to listen to someone bad-mouth another person, including a psychic. I simply say that I’m not interested in gossip or negativity.

3. Do not join in! Yes, I’ve talked smack about others, but I’m now much more aware of it. It’s part of my enlightened path to try to not talk about people.

4. If you can’t say anything nice…you know the old saying.

5. Encourage everyone to walk their own path, without being jealous! Be happy when someone succeeds or has positive comments said about them. I used to be jealous of successful psychics and now understand that we are all on our own paths.

Can Trauma Bring on Psychic Ability?

Hello, all of you readers. I’m sorry that I haven’t written, but I’ve been dealing with some massive family issues and have spent the last several nights pacing a floor! But thank God, with all of your prayers, my granddaughter is healing. For those who have messaged me, bless you and your family.

Now I’m going to talk about something that I’ve noticed, and has been talked about in psychic circles, and I know it’s true. I’m talking about surviving trauma, and it’s helping people evolve.

I remember when my mom died. It was totally sudden. And I was in shock. I actually felt the minute she died. I got sick to my stomach, pulled over to the side of the road and threw up.

Up until this time, I always had an interest in metaphysics: from ghosts to legends to tarot cards. But no real ability. None at least until I experienced this trauma.

My psychic journey started the night she died. That night as I lay crying, my mom came into my room, sat on the edge of my bed, and had a conversation with me. After that, I started seeing angels, knowing things, and reading people. My grief turned on my psychic ability. Or maybe mom brought it. Either way, my grief opened me up.

Many times, people don’t realize that a trauma even helped them. I have a psychic aquaintance who touts herself as a ‘self-taught’ psychic. Little does she remember that she had given birth to a still-born child before she honed her abilities. Trauma seems to promote soul growth.

Now I’m not sure if trauma helps us evolve to become more compsssionate, or just keeps us grounded and modest. Either way, I know, after much experience, there are very few people who have developed ability, until they have experienced trauma.

In my opinion, trauma helps our soul and it’s growth. We are here to learn, to understand and appreciate the human experience and that translates to emotion. Those emotions are intense and raw. It leaves us open to other realms. Actually talking to people, I have found very few psychics who have not experienced this.

I’m sure that there are psychics out there that have not experienced trauma, but I bet they are few and far between. There are always exceptions to the rule, of course. But few. Very few.

So have you experienced trauma or a point where you really started to open up? I bet there was some type of traumatic event that increased your ability. Has your psychic ability increased? Think about this. I’m not saying to purposely put yourself in a traumatic situation or anything, but these are the times your soul really opens up. I bet I’m right!!! Tell me…I’d love to hear from you.

Could You Have Mild PTSD and Not Know It?

20190402_120029

Hello everybody reading this!  I hope you are well.  I am well rested and ready to take on the world after a nice vacation on the beach in Florida.  To tell you the truth, even if you are broken,e try to take a couple weeks vacation.  It’s good for your mind, body and spirit!

I’m writing about something that has happened to me recently, and I want to share my insight with you. I’m hoping that you can take something from my experience and really make you think, and hopefully help you with your life.

I’ve always been different.  As a child I was overweight, and artsy.  I’m an empath, medium, psychic  and very, very sensitive.  I was also bullied.  A lot. From childhood through adulthood, and even into the workplace, by others as well as my family.   You see, I always put up with the behavior because I always felt I had to keep a ‘stiff upper lip’.  Even in the workplace(which is the most embarrassing of my bullying, since I’m an adult).  I always felt I had no choice.  As child, I was shunned and not accepted, spit on, beat up,  even though I excelled in many things.  In the workplace, I needed a paycheck and put up with horrendous behavior at the hand s of a so-called program director, who went as far as to make fun of me whenever I opened my mouth to speak. ( I think that to be honest, workplace bullying is the worst, because you are an adult, and feel that you don’t have to put up with it, but still do. )  For me, this went on for 6 years. All this takes a toll on you as a human, and from reading studies about it, I’ve realized it actually changes your DNA in your brain, causing all kinds of mental health issues that can resurface at any time.

You hear people say to you, “You just need to let it go,” which I thought I did.  I never thought that I could have suffered from PTSD.  I thought it was for people like veterans and the like.  But oh, I was wrong.  So wrong.  PTSD can be subtle, and mild to severe. It wasn’t until someone pointed out some of my symptoms that I’ve realized, that is exactly what I have been suffering from. I am a mild sufferer of PTSD.

Am I completely cured and can I cure it?  Here’s the funny thing;  people tell you to ‘let go’, but PTSD people cannot.  It’s hardwired in their brains.  How can you get something that’s hardwired in your brain to ‘let go’?  You can’t.  You have to accept that is the way it is, and learn to deal with it.  Here’s some symptoms of mild PTSD.

  1.  Lack of true trust in anyone or anything.
  2. “Walls” around yourself, so no one can know the real you.My aunt used to say I was like an”M&M”.  Hard on the outside, soft on the inside.(Which was my coping skill growing up).
  3.  Inner anger, that can be triggered by anything that is linked to former bullying episodes.
  4. Tendency to ‘shut down’ and not communicate.
  5. Avoiding people, or wanted to ‘just blend’ in.
  6. Feeling of worthlessness, and frustration
  7. Little things annoy you, causing outbursts.
  8. You seem moody, almost like bi-polar, but still cope and have a family, career and somewhat social life.
  9. Have anxiety or depression.
  10. Tend to be moody, or brooding.
  11. Dire need to be understood, and accepted, even if there is further abuse.
  12. Sometimes, you are an overachiever, trying to prove the bullies wrong. In my case, it was a go-go-go attitude. It almost seemed manic, without stop.

Recently, I had some ‘people’ do and say some very cruel things about me behind my back.  I was hurt beyond mention. It takes me a very long time to trust people(symptom of PTSD), and I dealt with it for the first time, in the right way.  This made me feel empowered, and has helped my though patterns.  In the past, I used to get very angry,  held it in, and fly off the handle at other things, even tiny ones.  I’ve always been a very high energy person also.  So my moodiness was often seen as manic episodes, and all kinds of other things.  But anyone who also knows me, knows that I am a very careful planner, non-impulsive, and up until recently, even though I’d be down a little, I’d pull myself out of it.  By doing this, I has something else to put my focus on. I’ve been out of my hell job for three years, and for some reason, it has recently reared it’s ugly head. This is also very common, by-the-way.  It’s also common for PTSD victims to keep repeating the patterns that caused the bullying.

We are still all learning up until the day we die.  For me, the bullying pattern was created by  a lack of communication.  Whenever someone attacks me, I go into survival mode.  I get extremely quiet and go to shut down, like I did when I was 10.  But the reason why I’m writing this is because this time, I did a coupe of things differently.  And it really helped me feel in control.  See, that’s one of the main causes of PTSD, a lack of control.  Things are done to you that you cannot control.  That’s where the anger comes from. In my case, I never stood up for myself.  It always seemed like it made matters worse.  But for the first time, I STOOD MY GROUND.

Things That Are Helping Me

These are some thoughts and things I did to begin learning to manage my PTSD. So far, although we cannot completely heal from PTSD, we can manage it and become happier and healthier humans.

  1.  What people think of you is not your business.  Stay in your own lane. Remember this and use this as a mantra each morning.
  2. Do not let abuse go unacknowledged, thinking it will just go away.
  3. Think out what you want to say to the bully.  I practiced it and even wrote it down.
  4.   Force yourself to state your piece, calmly and clearly.(Hardest FOR ME!)Tell these people clearly that you won’t take their abuse.(Try to keep all emotion out of the equation). Don’t keep running away!
  5. If necessary, refuse to go back for more.  Don’t go back into the space that got you there to begin with.
  6. Find something you love, and do it, every day, if even 5 minutes.
  7. Be grateful for what you have, and even for the opportunity to grow from the bullying.
  8. Surround yourself with positive people, friends and family.

As of right now,  I am still in contact with these people who just said nasty things behind my back.(You do realize that talking behind your back is a form of bullying, right?) People do that a lot, but the difference was, is that they gained my trust, something that is very difficult for me.  That’s why I was so hurt.

I’m pretty sure, in the near future, I will be done associating with these people.   I have been contemplating this, and know that they are negative, judgmental people.  They talk about everyone else, so why would I assume they wouldn’t talk about me?  DUH? My problem is that as a child, I wanted to be accepted as part of the group so badly, that I was willing to be abused.  This pattern has repeated itself many times.  I now just cut many people out of my life.  It has been hard, but removing the issue is helping.

Just remember, you are a precious part of God.  You deserve respect, and love.  You don’t have to keep putting up with abuse and you also don’t have to keep being a victim of it.  Will things resurface? You bet. PTSD just doesn’t go away. But maybe some things I’m offering can help manage it’s symptoms. Remember, there are people who care. I do. Bless all of you with love and light.

The Super Moon Doesn’t Affect You? Total BS

So..how is evetyone? I’ve been having a few health problems myself, so I hope you are good.

As most of you all know, I’m not just a psychic/medium, but also a farm owner, gardener, artist and especially, a Middle School teacher. And that’s why I’m writing. I’ve been teaching for 28 years and I cannot believe people have the blindness to say that the full moon doesn’t affect you. Ask, any teacher, they will BEG to differ. (And it’s not only the phases of the moon, but weather patterns affect your body and chakras also.)

Recent studies have supposedly shown that the moon does not affect us or has little effect, although it DOES create higher tides. Now, here is MY question; if the moon can affect an ENTIRE ocean, and we are 90% water, then why wouldn’t it affect a much smaller entity, like a body? After seeing some of my student’s behavior, I KNOW the full moon and Super Moon affects us. And in more ways than one. This Super moon is a great thing for us spiritually, but be aware of the physical symptoms as well. Just get through the week and be awsre of it’s symptoms.

How the Super Moon Can Affect Us Physically

1. Researchers have proven that a full/ Super moon can affect sleep andcause a decrease in melatonin.

2. Causes increased birthrates, and ovulation cycles.

3. Increased problems with kidneys.

4. Tendency to be accident prone.

How the the Super Moon Can Affect Us Spiritually

1. You may have a deep desire for change.

2. Old wounds that may not have healed have resurfaced.

3. You dreams may be more vivid and those who have passed may come in your dreams.

4. You may experience anxiety and don’t know why.

5. Feel like something big is shifting, but don’t know what.

So if you have experienced any of this, just be awate thst it IS really the moon. Most symptoms will psss. Don’t make hasty decisions, but now is a great time for renewal and letting go.
