5 Reasons Why Having Patience Is Hard; And Why We Should Practice It More

Reactions to being forced to have patience range from simple annoyances to down-right anger. Here are some reasons why and how overcoming the displeasure of being patient and looking at it differently can change your life.

  1. Patience forces us to be present without certainty.             

It can be difficult enough being “in the moment” (while mindful and centering ourselves) when we are engaged in routine. Throwing uncertainty into the mix creates an open space in…

Are You a Psychic or Healer? How to Deal With Difficult Clients

Are You a Psychic or Healer? How to Deal With Difficult Clients

Psychics and healers face a difficult task.  We are not only to be accurate and helpful, but also compassionate, forgiving, honest and philanthropic.  We are asked to be spiritual guides, mentors, prophets and discerners of the past.  We are asked to take away both physical and emotional pain.  We are asked to resolve perceived disputes between the physical and divine worlds. We are asked to align energy chakras, find…

The “G”uilt Spot: 5 Signs That Is Their Guilt, Not Yours

The “G”uilt Spot:

5 Signs That You Are Being Treated Like an Emotional Garbage Disposal

How guilt will impact us has to do with the method through which we acquired it, the circumstances around it and our understanding of both of these.

Part of healthy guilt is the understanding the origin of the emotion when it arrives and that it is different for everyone. Feeling guilt without understanding these tenets is counterproductive. Some argue that guilt is an emotion…

I'll Start On Monday!

The holidays are over. The bills are not paid.  The 10 pounds you lost in June are back and hanging on for dear life.  The sunny days help you get out of bed, and the rainy and snowy days make you fall in love with your flannel sheets.  You hear through the grapevine that your ex, you know the one who you so desperately wanted to call on New Year’s Eve does something to remind you why you dodged a bullet by lounging on the couch watching that one last holiday movie and passing out in a half…

What Happens When We Stop Worrying?

What happens when you stop worrying? Do you even know how to live without it? What would you possibly be like if you got up in the morning and said to the Universe “tag, you’re it” and just let go. Well, it depends on how you view and value control, who or what you perceive has the most of it and whether you know how to behave with or without it. 

If you subscribe to the notion that we have total control over our own existences, then the concept of worry is very rational for you.  If…

Five "Spiritual" Signs That You Are Really In Love!

How do you know if you are in love?

1. It feels easy.

So often we get into a relationship for the wrong reasons and invariably there are constant questions or considerations that arise.  Am I really attracted to them? Do I want to be "off the market" right now? Do I really want to introduce this person to my family and friends? Does he or she make enough money? We think and say things like, "We're getting older, after all, we have to think of the future."  Is…

Relationships: The Last Person On Earth

It's that time of year again. We are all "love struck". Those of us who are in a relationship are striving to uncover and travel to the place that provides the most powerful geographical aphrodisiac!

Those of us who are single are putting ourselves under a physical microscope to evaluate flaws and to figure out the fastest and most accurate way to make ourselves more attractive, which usually includes crash diets, insecurity, depression and endless…

The Power of Spirit in the Face of Tragedy

There will undoubtedly be an influx of quotes, articles and speeches regarding the recent tragedy in Boston, MA.

There will be those who will perceive this atrocity as simply another example of what they believe is a heartless and terrible world wrought with violence and hatred to be feared and dismissed, validating their distrust of humanity and decreasing their belief in a Higher Power.

Others will see the angels of mercy, the helpers, the selfless and the spiritual and holy…

There is Something Wrong With Her, They Said

Somebody told you once that the most important thing in life is too make enough money to support yourself and your family and if you do not, you were falling behind the crowd and were less important than those who achieved that success.

When they were done making you feel inadequate, stressed, anxious and pressured they asked you why you were never satisfied.

They told you to go "see someone", to figure out what it was that made you so self conscious and left you feeling like…

The Path of Misunderstandings: Why Not Knowing The Answers Is Spot On!

So often we wonder why the heck we can't understand the actions of another. Be it a partner, a co-worker, family member or friend, we so often search our brains for an understanding of why they act or feel the way they do. We wonder what it is about them that makes us feel a certain way and what it is about them that perplexes us. We can't understand why they dislike us, why they are always angry, why they seem to want to get our goat or make life miserable for us.

They answer is…

No Husband, No Wife, No Children? No Problem!

As we age, many of us experience the unsettling feeling that we will never have children of our own. We remain single in this world of varying ambitions and priorities and before we know it, time has passed and we begin to wonder if we will ever experience the euphoria of our own children in the way that those around us seem to have been blessed with.

For many having children is not a priority, especially when we are young. The fast paced world of survival of the financially…

The Firsts

I will never be 18 again. I will never be 25 again. I will never be 30 again.

When you reflect on your life, during those moments when you mourn for your youth, your perfect skin, your indestructible metabolism and your idealism...think on this:

You will never again be disappointed...:

~by the agony of the first love that you naively thought would last forever.

~that you don't know what to say at your first real job interview.

~that you…

The Irony of Change

The inevitability of change is something that we can always count on. When we learn to find stability in that knowledge, change becomes less frightening, less of a challenge, almost comforting. But there is a great irony in people's reaction to change, their opposition to it and their fear of it.

Take for example a romantic situation diminishing against the will of one of the parties involved. Often the agony associated with an unwanted break-up is so horrifying, so…

Silent as the Deer

  So many of us marvel at the outgoing and sometimes overwhelming personality of extroverted individuals. These are the people who can comfortably dominate a conversation seemingly carefree in the face of how they may be perceived. They have no problem speaking in front of groups, having an "audience" or simply letting their voice carry high and mightier that anyone in the crowd.

  We seek to have the whimsical nature that allows for this unihibited address of a room full of…

The Many Faces of Spirituality (Why Being Human makes it so Difficult to be Spiritual)

The word "spiritual" has many concrete definitions and many faces.  A common misconception about being spiritual is that defining oneself as such is contingent upon being "religious". Being "religious" means to subscribe to particular set of laws designed to show respect and humility to a particular deity or deities who are believed to be representatives of a higher power, that is all. Spirituality recognizes all representatives of faith.

Another view of sprituality lends its origin…

Why "Psychic" is an Outdated Term

    With the New Consciousness came a heightened need for spiritualists and intuitives to be represented as vehicles and catalysts for growth and universal change. Part of the reason why there is a barrier between the stereotype of the "psychic and medium" and what those words really represent has much to do with simple terminology.

     When someone hears those words, they immediately refer back to their old and outdated understanding and media hype regarding the paranormal, the New…

Understanding Love Through Grief

The world is a constant and revolving, never resting distributor of events that constantly make us, as humans, question our faith, our way and our destinies. All too often we are faced, and many times at the worst possible moments, with situations and tragedies that make us wonder what it all means, where we all go, and why we're all here. We're faced with untimely deaths, illness, struggles and unhappiness that require us to step back and re evaluate our own lives, our interactions with…

Spiritual and Human Gratitude: They Are Not the Same

It is widely accepted by believers in the Law of Attraction's principles that the key emotional element toward attaining your desires is the presence of gratitude in your life. So what is it about this experience that so drastically alters the energy field and kick starts your cosmic earning potential? What IS gratitude? Well, to begin with, let us remember that there is an entire holiday on our calendar year dedicated to it! Its a day of celebration, of the recognition that what we have is…

Finding Balance Between Your Thoughts and Your Intuition

There's a difference between being paranoid and suspicious because you are projecting your own thoughts and feelings onto others, and having a gut instinct about something. Once you learn the difference within yourself, you will be much more equipped to find peace where it needs to be and act when you need to act. One of the biggest problems women face is being made to think they are "crazy" for their intuitions and because of that never being able to tell the difference between intuition…

When Positive Thinking Seems Positively Impossible

We all exist with a certain amount of unease. There are people, things and situations in our lives that make it feel almost impossible to hold our heads up high and face each day. 

We may feel alone, though we are surrounded by others. We may feel inadequate although others may admire us. We may feel less than perfect although others may wish they were in our shoes for just one day. We may feel that we are without anything to offer the world, though others may…
