Intuitive Self-Care: A List Of My Favorite Steps For Cultivating Self-Care And Wellness

behind-of-yoga-woman-at-the-beach-picture-id873393234 Intuitive Self-Care

Many of us are juggling so many responsibilities and challenges in life that our own health and self-care ends up on the back burner. From long workdays and endless obligations to putting others’ needs before our own and ignoring our inner voice and intuition, we’re like robotic race cars racing around on the verge of running out of electricity. (Mind you, our cars are at least environmentally friendly.) We don’t want to pull over to allow our engines to recharge because we might get behind in the race. Yet, if we stop to think about it, we aren’t quite sure what the race is ultimately for in the first place!

I’ve had so much going on lately it’s got me thinking about self-care and healing. Many of us are struggling with something these days—whether exhaustion, illness, allergies, pain, depression, anxiety, or a cold that doesn’t want to go away. Beyond those more obvious symptoms, so many of us just feel stressed and out of balance.

Stressed About Your Future? Let Go of Certainty and Control

pensive-lonely-young-woman-sitting-on-beach-hugging-her-knees-and-picture-id664047240 Stressed About Your Future? Let Go of Certainty and Control

Like everyone these days I can fall prey to the stress goblins. I typically am pretty chill but during the recent US elections (since I was just in the states) I really got infected by the fear and anxiety about ‘WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN?” Oh I know, I’m supposed to have the conscious Universe on speed dial but I fall asleep at the wheel in stressful moments too. Yep, I teach what I need to be reminded of.

How do you react when you’re in the midst of uncertainty and not knowing what’s going to happen next? Do you try to plan, scheme, strategize, and control, all the while driving yourself crazy? Or, do you do what you need to do and then let go the results and cultivate faith in the Divine, faith in the uncharted map yet to be discovered?

How To Flow With Change

woman-in-flying-yellow-dress-on-pontoon-bridge-picture-id586159890 How To Flow With Change

Change is sometimes uncomfortable, weird, gawky, and stumbling.  It’s a messy thing…and just when you feel you’ve got this life dance thing down, the beat changes as soon as you think you know the steps, then you start to get dizzy and you have to sit down! Next, you discover you were actually playing musical chairs!

Yeah… I know, you thought your guardian angel was in charge of all that. Oh.. wait now we’re doing the cha cha cha?! I obviously didn’t bring the right shoes!  

Why is it that we think change and transformation have to be graceful and sparkly and shiny and liberating as soon as we consider it?  Why is it that when change happens, we recoil in fear and anger and then expect some magic being to fix it (like now please!) when a little time is what we actually need to adjust?

“But I’m spiritual I know these things.. all is well right? The Law of Abundance states… blablablabla… so why don’t I feel good, surrendered, happy, wise, serene, grateful all the time?”   

Seriously evolving out loud is part Presence and Wisdom, part Ridiculous, part Graceful, and mostly chasing it all around like trying to catch fireflies in a jar.

Is it because when we wake up and ignite our inner Light we think enlightenment means we will all of a sudden become creatures of never-ending joy and awareness? Is it because we think opening up to the deeper layers of Consciousness gives us an intuition that will guarantee that we will know how to avoid all obstacles, and pain and slide over our fear and loss like Elsa in Frozen singing Let it Go? (gosh I can’t stand that song).

How to Reinvent Your Love Life (or How to Break Blocks to Love)

lesbian-couple-picture-id915291634 How to Reinvent Your Love Life (or How to Break Blocks to Love)

Love is in the air! Can you feel it? I think autumn is the most romantic time of the year. Yes I know it’s spring down under but It’s this time of year for me that turns on my romantic buttons. I know I’ve said this before but I just love all aspects of love. I love being in love and helping people understand and experience more love. I love my awesome husband, I love my job, I love my dogs, my friends, my students, my employees and you know what -my world is brimming with love! I have so much of it to give. And so I do!

It was not always like this. I used to look for love, and determine my worth for how much the outer world would reflect my lovability and value depending on who was there or not there to prove it to me. I thought longing and yearning was love but it wasn’t – it was the focus on the lack of love that was so compelling and “romantic.”

For many years I struggled with this need to be loved and seen as worthy. When I was single, for a long time to me it was a message that I was flawed. I could only see the empty part of the glass. Yet thank goodness I saw the Light.  It was only when I surrendered this fully, and learned to love myself and be a channel for love that I no longer saw myself that way. And paradoxically the more I let go the need to find love, the more of it came to me!

I know that for many people, the mention of love and relationships elicits frustration, regret, anxiety, and a sudden need for chocolate. You want to meet the right person, but things just never seem to pan out. Or, you keep thinking you’ve met “the one” only to discover that he or she is just as commitment phobic or dishonest as “the one” before him/her. It’s the same old story with a new leading love interest, and you wonder what you’re doing wrong.

Tarot Cards vs Oracle Cards

photo-of-tarot-card-picture-id955674858 Tarot Cards vs Oracle Cards

When I was 17 years old I got my very first personal oracle in the form of a tarot deck. It was the Rider Waite Tarot and it changed my life forever. Then shortly after I was introduced to other divination systems, like Norse Runes and the I-Ching, and others that lit me up like a candle! Little did I know then that teaching about divination tools, and oracles as a means of self-understanding and communicating with the Divine would become the main focus of my work. Curiosity led to transformation and now here we are.

Over the years, even before I began, my now 30 years long career working as an intuitive and Oracle creator, I used the tarot daily and collected tarot decks (at one point I had 62 of ‘em) and got to know how to work with the tarot intimately. I taught workshops on working with the tarot, then eventually went on to create a different form of Oracle – these are called oracle cards.

There is a difference between the tarot cards vs oracle cards as well as similarities. I’m going to get you in the know now, so if anyone asks you’ll have the answer!

Spirit Animals Choose You (not the other way around!)

horse-in-water-at-sunrise-picture-id873197024 Spirit Animals Choose You (not the other way around!)

Have you ever noticed a specific animal, bird, insect or fish that shows up for you in an uncanny way, perhaps even more than once when you’re in a dilemma or looking for confirmation about something?

Most of us were never taught that we share our environment with Nature’s oracles (other sentient beings). Actually most of us never even knew what an oracle was since it’s deemed taboo by some! That said, I was lucky that my Scottish nanny Mrs. Kelly brought me the gift of this sacred knowledge when I was little. I learned to pay attention to what happened in my backyard and she pointed out when we went to church the halos around the saints were the same as the ones I was seeing around the bees and dragonflies and our pet raccoon Petunia. All life was sacred and magical to Mrs. Kelly, and she reminded me that the comings and goings of animals were signs from Spirit.

That said sometimes a dog is just a dog, or a skunk just a skunk. But there are those moments when, in a flash of energy, you just know somehow that the appearance of an animal is meant to bring you a message. It’s built into our intuitive systems to tune into the language of Spirit Animals naturally. Example, a Spirit Animal is the presiding spirit of not just one dragonfly but all dragonflies, and contain the symbolic meaning of the essence of Dragonfly. This is not some anthropomorphic new age gobbledygook. Over thousands of years we’ve assigned meaning to these encounters, and in cultures around the world, there is an accepted language about these sightings and their significance.

New Moon in Libra – An Invitation to Start Over

sunset-and-new-moon-picture-id537348641-1 New Moon in Libra – An Invitation to Start Over

Human beings once looked at time in a more natural way. We looked to the moon and stars in the sky to reflect the cycles of life in our environment and to help us determine our place in the seasons of our life. The moon was and still is our great illuminator, the soft focus that could show us the way in the dark. We planted and harvested crops according to lunar cycles and this is still symbolic of how we can plant our sweetest intentions in our Field of Dreams when the moon is dark and open to receive, and pull out the weeds with wild abandon when the moon shines full and can show us what we need to release for our highest good.

This week we’re visited by the New Moon in the sign of Libra and there is a distinct cosmic nudge and invitation by this relationship focused moon to plant the seeds of harmony, gratitude, and goodwill even towards those you may have resented. That’s right the New Moon in Libra really is an invitation to start over, to open your heart even if it’s been bruised and celebrate that Love is the answer right now.

It’s so interesting when I look back I always felt that October was the cozy month to fall in love!  Ok, I will admit I kissed a lot of frogs before my husband. Maybe I thought October meant they would turn into a magical prince. HA!  It never dawned on me it was because the astro-influence was Libra – the sign ruled by Venus and centered around partnerships. But I slightly digress!

Answer the Call & Discover Who You Are Really Meant to Be

answeringthecall Answer the Call & Discover Who You Are Really Meant to Be

As I get ready to launch Oracle School this fall, I think back to this summer and the extraordinary opportunities I had to serve the groups I was invited to speak at. I taught some powerful workshops, but I also did readings and mediumship. I’m still amazed at how this has all transpired for me, given my former resistance to fully embrace spiritual mediumship as a natural progression of my service.

I remember vividly how, years ago every time I heard the Call to this particular facet of service, well I answered it, then was suitably stunned, and promptly hung up the celestial phone. “Um, No way… too many weirdos, too many haters, too much responsibility, not enough proof, too many others doing this well, such strong tradition, not for me” etc. etc. etc.
Call back later I’ve made other plans.

Have you ever run away from the one thing that lights you up and makes your heart sing for fear of what others might think, feeling unworthy perhaps or just plain not wanting the responsibility?
I fought the truth of my life for so long I exhausted myself. I always wanted to be something else. I thought I was going to do readings only until my music career took off. I was no way going to be known as a medium, or psychic! Can you believe it? I had a ginormous chip on my shoulder about this, and yet it was calling me all the time. My authentic life was always waiting for me. I had to surrender.

This Sound is My Meditation Magic..

tibetan-singing-bowl-picture-id81441626_20180827-130013_1 This Sound is My Meditation Magic..

Imagine sitting inside a sound bath of vibrating crystal bowls, resounding with a never-ending harmony that causes every molecule in your body to buzz and sing with delight. This is meditation on steroids. The result is nothing less than magical.

At this year’s OraclePalooza® we had our special guest sound healer Mark David on stage beside me with some of his extraordinary crystal bowls ringing throughout the room. I’ve sampled many different sound healers and can admit to once having a library of over 100 specific CDs by artists who use crystal singing bowls as a means to stimulate a deeper more profound meditation experience. Mark David is my favorite.

I love to introduce amazing interesting people, and new ways to meditate and work with oracle cards to my audience and so this week I thought I’d talk about this form of crystal bowl meditation and a bit about Mark.

My Most Magical Mystical Weekend

I had the most incredible weekend with the coolest, most mystical, weird & wonderful spirit-loving people. We read Oracle Cards, we laughed, we meditated, we danced, we journaled, we cried, danced some more and we had a fantastic time together.

What did I do? I hosted the 2nd annual OraclePalooza®.

It was a dream come true to have close to 300 people join me for my yearly giant Oracle Card party and celebration event. Everyone brought amazing positive energy and dove into up-leveling exercises all while sharing their hearts, smiles, and so much joy. Even the tears were liberating in so many ways as people broke through their personal barriers.

Let Toxic Relationships Go For Good

freedom-concept-picture-id935739044 Let Toxic Relationships Go For Good

Have you ever severed a relationship, but even though the person was no longer in your life, you still continued the relationship in your head? Consider that the very act of keeping it alive even if only in your mind means you are still in it. Perhaps that happens when you feel a relationship is unrequited, and you’re not letting go, or you’re nursing a resentment because you won’t, or lack the self-awareness to see your part in the dynamic.

This is not about self-blame at all. It’s about self-accountability and freedom.

Tap into the Power of Synchronicity to Discover your Map of Destiny

perfect-form-of-arch-picture-id520622970 Tap into the Power of Synchronicity to Discover your Map of Destiny

Do you know that paying attention to and tapping into the power of synchronicity is a way to hone in on your partnership with the Universe and create your destiny?

I know it appears I’m repeating myself as I have written about this many times in the past because it’s so important to underline especially these days. With all the turmoil in the world, it’s easy to only believe what appears to be true in that crazy environment where the media reports only the drama and very little of the amazing and good. We are in a time of great change and if we rely on only what we see and are exposed to we will only be responding to a sliver of the whole story. It’s easy to get stuck in the challenges. Yet there is a guiding principle that engages us through meaningful coincidences that Swiss psychologist Carl Jung called synchronicity.


No matter the temporary conditions, your intentions and energy are reflected through this invisible guidance. It’s kind of like the universe working anonymously on your behalf.

Can Predictions Be Changed?

Can Predictions Be Changed? Predictions: Is the Future Written in Stone or Pencil?

A lot of people are asking me what prediction I can make about our world and where we are headed. For the record I don’t make predictions, I track energy, watch for patterns and choice points and share the prescription to empower people. Everyone is looking for answers, for support, to be told they will be ok, that they will be safe, get what they want etc.
It’s always in times of great turmoil that people turn to an intuitive /psychic reading to make predictions to help them feel better. Certainty is a hot commodity right now but I say, buyer beware! If your motive is absolute certainty you run the risk of disempowering yourself, the opposite of what you need.

Over the years I’ve received tons of emails from people asking for my thoughts on predictions. Some of the common questions are: What do you do if you get a negative prediction? Are predictions absolute or can you change them? Why haven’t particular predictions from psychic readings come true yet? What about predictions (often doomy and gloomy) made about world events? I heard recently someone say with absolute surety we are heading to World War Three, and another person predicting aliens for sure will come to stop it.

Power-up Your Intentions

freedom-and-stress-free-concept-picture-id675754156 HOW TO TAP INTO THE PROFOUND POWER OF THE UNIVERSE

What would it be like if you didn’t measure the success of your life just by what you get and don’t get, but gave equal or greater priority to how aligned you are with your greatest values?

So many of us have been taught to measure our success through the accomplishment of goals. As a result, we get stuck on a goal-driven roller-coaster, feeling the highs when we accomplish something and the lows and frustrations when things don’t go as we plan.

The problem is that goals don’t fulfill you on an ongoing basis; they either lead to more and more goals or crumble apart, leaving you to feel like you failed. While goals give you excitement and highs and lows, intentions provide you with enduring self-respect, purpose, and peace of mind.

Setting intentions is very different than goal making because it’s not focused on arriving at a specific future outcome. When we set an intention it’s really to experience something and that may take time to fully manifest. It’s really a process that is initiated by being conscious and deliberate on how you are being in the present moment. Your attention is on the “now.”

The now is where ALL your power is. It is the place where you plant the seed of intention for your dreams. You set an intention and begin the doing, thinking and being in the now.

Marking Your Milestones with Meaning

chocolate-cupcake-picture-id506920600 THE SACRED QUALITY OF RITES OF PASSAGE

I’m writing this on the New Moon in Cancer, and I’m intimately aware that things are about to change for me. New moons are about setting intentions and this one is particularly meaningful for me as I am about to cross a threshold that stretches out across the sands of time. I am accepting an invitation to move into something unknown, new, and powerful. My intentions are clear, and so is my vulnerability.

This week I turn 60. Yes, it’s a strange number for me, but the power is in the meaning I assign to it.  It is decidedly not going to mean the same thing that our culture has conditioned me to believe. Yet it is beyond that, a sacred journey marker in time, that represents something important for me personally but also symbolically for all modern women who have lost the way to recognize their milestones as representing a sacred quality.

Have you ever felt that sense of deeper meaning as you approach an important milestone in your life? Outside of births and deaths, or religious ceremonies in western culture, we don’t make sacred the rites of passage when a girl begins to menstruate or mark the phases in our life as women as we move from maiden, priestess, queen, then crone.  How do we know what these phases mean? It’s not enough to see that there are the decades marked in fashion magazines with suggestions for how we should appear. Our milestones are those of the soul, the mystical, and markers of the maturation of experience as we travel and write the stories of our lives.

Create Mindfulness with Oracle Cards

morningpractice Create Mindfulness with Oracle Cards

In 1990 I was introduced to a book and author that was to change my life. The book was (and is) called Full Catastrophe Living and Jon Kabat Zinn Ph.D. the founder of MBSR,  Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction probably was the single most powerful teacher I had that helped me cope with the back to back deaths of my parents.

I was four years sober and nutty as a fruitcake as I had no real understanding of my empathy overload, or what to do with my constant anxiety, especially because I had begun doing professional work as an intuitive and had no clue as to how I was receiving such intimate information. Looking back I see myself on electricity overload all lit up like a Christmas tree.

The Divine Secrets Of Neutral And Chill

enjoying-the-life-picture-id108614540 The Divine Secrets Of Neutral And Chill

I’ve worked in this field for 30 years now and the secret to the best way to connect with divine guidance is decidedly not typically how people do it when in times of chaos and uncertainty. (especially lately)

 

You know what I mean right? You’re freaked out about something so you run to your computer or phone to pick a card online or grab the oracle cards on your table. Shuffle shuffle shuffle. OMG tell me what’s happening??

 

Your motive? Fear and the need to be told all will be well. You’re looking for certainty in the most uncertain of times, and your energy is completely wonky. You will likely have already decided what the cards mean anyway, or hope they mean and so you project onto them to suit your story rather than see the whole picture. If you don’t like what they say, heck no one is looking let’s put those back and pick new ones.

 

Or maybe you think you finally found The One and even though you just met you want to know if he (or she) is going to be your very own forever Beloved supporting your every move, cooking dinner while you embark on building the life of your dreams. Speaking of which, you also might be looking at your career and want to know how can you become all that you know you can when the world isn’t behaving? Of course, it’s natural to try to hold on to a branch when the world looks like a super ninja obstacle course.
