The New Year can give us a new outlook on life and a fresh start. This is why so many people turn to New Year’s resolutions as well as yearly horoscope advice to help guide them in the coming year. It can always be difficult to tell exactly what you should be doing with your life and whether or not you are in the proper place. New Year’s resolutions can help you to create solutions to life’s biggest problems this is why so many New Year’s resolutions involve making big changes like quitting smoking, losing weight, quitting a job or even starting educational pursuits. The power of a New Year’s resolution can be extremely valuable especially if you commit to it. Here are some tips that you can follow to stick with your New Year’s resolution and feel its true power.
Write it down or save your goals: If you have a plan to guide you through the entire year it’s very important that you save this piece of paper or even print it out & place in a prominent place to make sure that you can constantly follow this guidance throughout the year. If you feel as though you could see some very positive results from following advice or by keeping your resolution make sure that you write it down so that you can think of it as a mantra and constantly have the information available and repeatable. When we write things down we are much more likely to carry through and actually complete a goal. Saving this information or writing it down is a tip to feel the real power of a New Year’s resolution and stick with it.
Ask for support: Resolutions involving other people, such as a gym partner and seeing a New Year’s resolution through also involves making connections and working with other people to see your goals through. To make sure you can complete your New Year’s resolution ask for help and support from friends or family. Asking for help from others is a great way to stay motivated as well as make sure that you have all of the emotional support to see a big resolution through.
Set achievable goals for the year: in some cases people think far too big picture and try to accomplish far too much in one year. Resolutions should be used as guides, you don’t need to accomplish a lifetimes worth of feats in just one year. Keep your goals attainable and create small goals that involve your resolution throughout the course of the year so that you can stay on track.

Before anyone has a phone psychic reading it is always a good idea to get established exactly what it is you want to come away with. Many people get confused between magicians and psychics. You may have seen magicians guessing impossible details on tv shows, this is not what you can expect from a good psychic reading. Most people will ask for a general reading & expect some confirmation of whether they are following the correct path in their life. Some online psychics act more like counsellors and are expected to answer questions such as :
• Is my boyfriend ‘the one’, do you see a future for us ?.
• I feel stuck in my job, am I doing the right thing in my career ?
• Will I meet a new special person soon ?
• I have 2 potential suitors, which one should I choose ?.
• Am I ever going to get my dream life of marriage & children ?
I have had many readings over the years & continue to have readings with some fabulous people. Usually in the first few minutes you will know if you have developed a rapport with your reader and if you are going to go away feeling uplifted and energised. Whether your psychic reading is by phone, text, email or face to face, it is your reading and you should get the best experience possible from your psychic reader. That’s why it is, in my opinion, always best to get a recommendation from someone you trust before contacting a psychic or clairvoyant.
Points to remember
• Anything that relates to ‘bad luck being lifted from you’. This is an old and sometimes frightening type of reading about lifting gypsy curses and should set alarm bells ringing straight away !. You have not got bad luck surrounding you so this person can’t lift it and make your life instantly magical ! Avoid at all costs !.
• A very general reading that could apply to anyone or is filled with flattery that makes you feel great but doesn’t actually relate to you or your current situation.
• Try and search out a psychic reader who is experienced and will genuinely do their best to give you a reading to remember that will inspire you to move forward with your life and make choices that will empower you.
Your reading should be empowering, honest, and most of all fun !. If you don’t get the reading you are looking for simply end the reading and return to reception to hopefully connect with a reader who you have a better rapport with. I hope if you are thinking of having a reading these points have fired your enthusiasm and given you some points to consider.
I find myself returning to readers that I sense a connection with. You can find some reviews of my best psychic readers here : Psychic readers reviewed and recommended.
The Irish, those who actually come from the country of Ireland, both by birth and those who attribute it to their heritage, are historically a religious and feisty group of people. Everyone can join in the festivities of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations & enjoy stories of magic and leprechauns. In my Irish family intuition & superstition formed a large part of life. Self proclaimed Irish psychics were revered & thought to have inherited the ‘gypsy gift’, making their predictions in hushed tones to eager listeners. The Irish are famous for their anecdotes and quotes, with a unique outlook on life here are just a few …
1. “There is no language like the Irish for soothing and quieting.” By John Millington Synge.
2. “St. Patrick’s Day is an enchanted time — a day to begin transforming winter’s dreams into summer’s magic.” By Adrienne Cook.
3. “Ireland is rich in literature that understands a soul’s yearnings, and dancing that understands a happy heart.” By Margaret Jackson.
4. “Only Irish coffee provides in a single glass all four essential food groups: alcohol, caffeine, sugar, and fat.” By Alex Levine.
5. “Maybe it’s bred in the bone, but the sound of pipes is a little bit of heaven to some of us.” By Nancy O’Keeefe.
6. “In Ireland the inevitable never happens and the unexpected constantly occurs.” By Sir John Pentland Mahaffy.
7. “Long life to you, a wet mouth, and death in Ireland”
8. “A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures”
9. “I believe in the sun when it’s not shining, I believe in love even when I feel it not, I believe what whiskey will not cure, there is no cure for.”
A lot of the Irish outlook is down to the fact that historically the Irish nation had to adapt to challenging circumstances. Life could be a challenge in Ireland. Even relatively recently when I visited family in the south of Ireland poverty was still evident. I still remember seeing cousins with no shoes, which shocked me as a young boy. I remember seeing the big pot over the peat fire cooking whatever had been pulled together for dinner. The first house I visited was tumbling down & many family were sharing one big old broken bed. With their religious background also affecting their outlook, I found the way people dealt with their situation & the way that inspirational quotes & superstition would be used to make sense of the world.
I very much hope to revisit some of my childhood haunts very soon for a dose of Irish positivity !…
Finding Inner Peace
Feeling discouraged? Lacking that sense of inner peace? Well, you are probably in very good company. All that you have to do is go into any bookstore and look in the self-help section. You will always find it huge variety of publications from “experts” who claim to have the secret to finding true enlightenment. The trouble is that there are so many different opinions and options readily available that we can often become confused very easily.
Finding inner peace is not something that happens instantly. It is a process. You can always start by asking yourself if you are more peaceful now than you were a year ago. If the answer is yes, then you must be doing something right. If not, then perhaps it’s time to make a few changes. The best psychics & gurus I have ever met focus on making long term changes & changing a routine every day until positivity becomes a routine.
Almost all of the self-help books and seminars online will have the same basic principle, the need to spend a bit of quality time each morning in self-contemplation. Some people refer to this as “meditation”. Others may call it “praying”. But whatever you call it, if you want to extract more peace and tranquility into your life, then start including a little peace and tranquility into your daily schedule regularly, just like reaching for that first cup of coffee in the morning. Over time, the seed of inner peace that you have planted will begin to sprout and grow.
Believe it or not, when some people first began to incorporate this practice of daily meditation or quiet time into their morning rituals, they can quickly become even more discouraged. Their minds begin to wander. Am I doing this right? Should I be sitting with my legs crossed? What am I supposed to be thinking? While these are all very valid questions, the simple truth is that none of this really matters. The act of meditation is a very personal and individual experience. Your practice may differ greatly from someone else’s, and that is perfectly acceptable.
The only goal that you should have in mind when you first began to meditate is to simply try to quiet the mind. Close your eyes. Relax. There is no right or wrong method to finding inner peace, unless you accidentally fall asleep. Where people get discouraged is when they overanalyse and prejudge every aspect of the meditation process. You need to “get out of your head”. Remember what you are trying to do. You are trying to clear the mind. You are basically trying to “do nothing”. So how is it possible to get frustrated while doing nothing?
Think about the last time you tried to train your dog to “sit”. You might be successful in getting him to sit, but teaching him to “stay” is a whole other challenge itself. People are exactly the same way. We know how to sit, but we don’t know how to sit and be still. For dogs, we need to give them a little extra treat now and then, a reward for good behaviour and a job well done. For humans, we need to adopt the same approach. Give yourself a break. Start out slowly. Try staying quiet and still for only five minutes per day. Keep a calendar of your daily meditation schedule, and reward yourself every so often for a job well done. Before you know it, that feeling of being discouraged will gradually fade into a sense of inner peace.
10 Secrets to unlock Success and Inner Peace
There are two things that most people always try to achieve in life, “success”, however it is that you define that to be, and “inner peace”. Some people start out in life working towards financial success first, realising later in life that inner tranquility and peace of mind is also essential. For others, the reverse may be true. But we all come to realise that in order to be happy, both of these elements must be present and balanced in our personal and professional lives. Here are 10 Secrets for Success that will help you achieve this balance.
1.Choose a career path that actually interests you rather than simply “going for the money”. Most successful people will tell you that if you do what you love, the money will follow.
2.Choose your life partner just as carefully. This is going to be the person that you are going to spend the rest of your life with. Make sure that they complement your goals and dreams rather than crushing them.
3.Balance your life with hobbies and other interests. “Man cannot live by bread alone”. Broadening your horizons will make life much more enjoyable and promote a sense of inner peace.
4.One of the best kept Secrets for Success is the avoidance of negative people. It can often be fun to sit around and gossip with friends and neighbours, but this type of behaviour does not lift you up spiritually. Gossip and negativity always brings you down and impedes progress.
5.Be independent. You are the one who is going to create your own destiny. Not anyone else. Depend on yourself and trust your intuition. This will ultimately strengthen your character which will attract a wealth of positive people into your life at the same time.
6.Define your personal weaknesses and then strive to overcome them. Not everyone is good at everything. It is okay to be lacking in certain abilities. Face your fears and create a plan of action that will help you to grow in these weaker areas. Progress in these areas will promote a greater sense of inner peace, even if you do not become a complete “expert” in the end.
7.Recognise bad habits and work to stop them. Many of us have an addictive personality which can in extreme cases lead to drug and alcohol addiction, for example. But even more of us are addicted to other more “normal” behaviors, such as procrastination, gossiping, overeating, or being judgmental. Recognising bad habits and working to overcome them is one of the critical Secrets for Success.
8.Don’t expect perfection. We all make mistakes. We all have weaknesses. What makes some people more successful than others is their ability to learn and accept these mistakes and weaknesses…and move on.
9.Don’t forget to help yourself. Although it feels wonderful to help those around you to overcome their difficulties and personal crises, it is always important to take care of yourself first. This will allow you to have a stronger sense of inner peace which results in you also having a better ability to help others in the long term.
10.Exercise and meditation is critical. In order to have a balanced life, we have to attend to our mind, body, and spirit. Only when we are truly in balance can we find true happiness.
I hope these quick points have fired your interest and sincerely wish you all the success & happiness you can handle !
For many singles surfing the web, we often come across those sites that offer psychic readings that will help us find true love. We might end up contacting them, asking if there is anyone in our near future with whom we are going to build a loving and long-lasting relationship. In other cases, we might even contact the psychics to see if we can re-kindle a past love. In order to get the most productive reading, there are a few things that you should keep in mind.
True psychics have the amazing ability to tune into your inner thoughts and emotions, making a connection with your mind as well as your spirit in order to provide you with guidance and foresight. A reputable psychic should be able to give you enough details about your personal life to ensure that you have indeed developed a very real connection. True psychics also know that our individual destinies are not always preordained. They are not set in stone.
Remember, free will is always a factor that will dictate the accuracy of these psychic readings. You always have the conscious decision to change your mind, just as those that you will meet in life have the same choice of free will. For example, there may have been times in your life previously that you were instantly attracted to someone, almost certain that they were your one true love. Then, seemingly overnight, something happens to change your mind. It can be a simple facial expression or body movement that can alter your perception of that individual almost instantly. The same can be said for everyone.
So what is the point of asking for a reading in the first place?
The best psychic readings are those in which the reader makes a connection with you as an individual, tuning in to your own personal patterns of thought and beliefs that make you a unique person. These patterns can often impede or block our progress in personal relationships, essentially keeping us from finding our one true love. This is why many psychic readers tend to answer your questions but also delve into deeper aspects of your inner psyche, the things that make you tick. We have to be open to accepting these viewpoints as well as hearing about the possibility of meeting our future love interests.
The most successful readings from reputable psychics will focus more on you than on the others that you are going to meet in the future. They will try to focus on your inner power and abilities that when used to their highest potential can attract the destiny that you desire. True psychics are looking at the bigger picture. The most powerful psychic readings will provide you with greater self-awareness and insight rather than focusing on future events. Remember, the future can always be changed. Use the information achieved from your reading to help you plan your next move, hopefully ultimately resulting in finding your one true love.
Use Feng Shui to Make More Money
Everyone wants to make more money, but did you know that you can use the ancient Chinese practice of Feng Shui to help you achieve higher levels of income? While many people have heard of this technique, many more believe that learning how to use its principles is simply too time-consuming and difficult. Surprisingly, this practice is incredibly simple to learn, much easier than you might think.
The basic philosophy of Feng Shui is to design the perfect environment, both at home and in your professional life, that attracts positive energy and success while also allowing these energies to flow freely and smoothly throughout these internal spaces. “Balance” of energy and harmony in all aspects of one’s life is the motivating factor behind this ancient practice. Once a more balanced state is achieved, all areas of your life will begin to improve significantly, including your ability to make more money.
Step One: De-Clutter Your Life
In order to attract only positive energy, you need to make room for it to come into your life. You can begin by simply and literally “cleaning house”. Go through every room, every closet, and every kitchen drawer, tossing out what you no longer need or use. If these items still have intrinsic value, consider giving them away to a local thrift shop or charity. Get rid of all the obstacles in and around the home and office that are preventing the free flow of positive energy. This is the basis of Feng Shui.
Step Two: Promote Growth in your Environment
Any time that you are asking the universe to help you increase your wealth, you are essentially asking the universe to help you attain a certain level of “growth” in one or several areas of your life. The best way to promote this growth is to incorporate houseplants in and around your home and workspace. Make sure to take excellent care of them. Many people place a plant called a “Money Tree” on the corner of their desk at work as a means of promoting financial growth.
Step Three: Keep Things in Working Order
In order to make more money, make sure that all of the equipment used on a daily basis to perform your job tasks are in proper and excellent working condition, this includes your telephone, your office printer, your laptop, your cell phone, and even the desk chair that you sit in for the largest portion of the work day. Keep all areas clutter free, including the top of your desk and the inside of your desk drawers. If your desk chair is wobbly, then get a new chair. Keep your computer free from viruses and delete old web browser histories on a consistent basis.
Step Four: Show Gratitude by Maintaining your Internal Spaces
The basic fundamentals of Feng Shui ask that you de-clutter and organize your home and work spaces, but this is not enough. You need to consistently maintain these areas, vacuuming on a regular basis, dusting your furniture, watering your plans, and other normal daily chores. By doing these practices, you are essentially showing gratitude for your current level of wealth, asking the universe to provide you with even more. “Like attracts like”. Do this in all areas of your life where you spend a great deal of time, even in your car & you will be amazed at how all of this positive energy attracts more abundance in to your life.
The study of Tarot cards & the use of Tarot in spreads for the purpose of divination has been popular for centuries. The recent explosion of commercial decks & popularity has, many believe, diluted the power of the Tarot experience. Many Tarot readers find this disconcerting & are not happy that the Tarot can be used by anybody as a party trick & may not necessarily be taken seriously. In fact the Tarot is simply a deck of painted cards, even playing cards can be used for divination. The magic of Tarot happens when you connect with the hidden meanings of the Tarot at a deeper soul level. You will know when the Tarot has claimed you as the fascination almost always becomes a lifelong obsession.
Cartomancy or the reading of cards can take many forms. Tarot can be used as a personal method for spiritual enlightenment, or to give readings for others to reveal alternative paths that could power them to change the course of their life journey. There are many superstitions that have grown up around Tarot. For example, you should never buy your own deck, or you should keep your deck wrapped in a silk cloth. In fact however you decide to interact with your deck is entirely your prerogative. My personal belief is that as long as you respect the Tarot and don’t allow others to simply ‘play’ with the cards, then your connection to the cards should remain intact.
The discussion as to what comprises ‘true cartomancy’ is set to run & run. Many believe that a Tarot reading cannot be considered cartomancy & that playing cards can only provide the true experience. Then there is the consideration that there are so many different types of oracle cards, angel cards & a myriad other types of decks available these days, can these all also now be included under the definition of cartomancy ?.
The Tarot deck is of course structured differently than other decks of cards. It has seventy eight cards in total, divided into 22 Major Arcana cards and 56 Minor Arcana cards. For more details on the Tarot deck you can visit my Meanings of Tarot page that has links to the meanings of each card in the deck. Though there are four suits they are not the standard Clubs, diamonds, hearts, and spades. Tarot instead has Wands, Pentacles, Swords & Cups, which in turn on one level at least, relate to the four elements, earth, air, fire and water.
There are so many levels of meaning immersed in the Tarot experience that a lifetime of study is needed to even begin to unravel these hidden mysteries. Likewise there are many different schools of interpretation. This combined with the endless spreads and the level of skill of the reader and you can see why so many disputes over the interpretation of the cards surface on an almost daily basis. Long ago after absorbing the basic meanings and keywords associated with each card I ditched the little white book that accompanies each deck, choosing instead to focus on using my intuition as to what the cards were trying to reveal through my subconscious.
If you are drawn to the Tarot prepare for a long and fruitful collaboration. Try and start with a reading from a really good Tarot reader to fire your enthusiasm. An excellent way to begin to unravel the mysteries of the Tarot is to design your own deck, as I have done for the deck I use throughout my sites. If this is beyond you then colouring a deck by using a b&W deck such as those available from the excellent BOTA here http://store.bota.org/tarotdecks.html
Wherever your journey with Cartomancy takes you I wish you only the best & many happy hours of uncovering the meanings and mysteries to light your path.
Quick and Easy Ways to a Happier Day
We all have times when our moods are anything but happy. We try to think of the good things going on in our lives but only manage to find the negatives.
There are situations that seem impossible to correct, leaving mounds of depression in its wake. You struggle to get beyond that dark cloud with little to no success. Wouldn’t it be great if we could tap into simple ways to lift our spirits and feel better about ourselves. Here are some quick and easy ways to turn off the negatives and turn on the positives.
The Path to Happiness:
Not only is walking a great source for health, but can help unload negative thoughts. Taking a walk along a path in the forest is relaxing and soothing. Soft shades of forest greens with streaks of sunlight drenching beds of yellow buttercups. A soft breeze rustling through trees where birds perch singing happy tunes. As you emerge from the forest, you might just discover you were on the path to happiness.
Music Soothes the Savage Beast:
It is a fact that music has a strong influence on our moods and thoughts. Grab your favorite CD or find a radio station that caters to your songs. Music will lift your spirits and soothe that savage beast that’s keeping you down.
Knowledge is Good for the Soul:
Maybe there is a topic that fascinates you but you have never really looked into it or maybe your eye will catch an article in a magazine that draws your attention. Reading, in general, will focus you away from your negative thoughts. Learning something new can be absolutely inspiring and is good for the soul. Finding your true path will always provide you with something that you can rely on that will always guarantee that you can connect to your inner happiness. My life long study is the interpretations, meanings and nuances of Tarot. If I am feeling out of sorts I can connect to the Tarot or study a new reading or spread and be assured that my mood will be lifted.
Laughter is Addictive:
Have you ever been in a public place and someone close is laughing so hard they start crying! The normal reaction by others is to start laughing. Laughter is very addictive and one of the very best ways to lift your emotions to great heights. Find a funny movie, read a funny book, get your mind off stuff dragging you down.
Take a Deep Breath:
People who practice meditation will tell you this is one of the healthiest ways to clean out your thoughts. Sit in a comfortable position, keeping your back straight, close your eyes and breathe! Feel the flow of air entering and leaving your nose. If you practice this for 10-15 minutes, you will be really surprised how great you are going to feel afterwards.
Doodling is not Just for Kids:
Kids love drawing fun little sketches of funny looking figures or flowery swirls.. Adults like to doodle for various reasons such as talking on the phone or stuck in an extremely boring meeting! Get a box of crayons, colorful pens or pencils and just start doodling away. lt’s fun, it’s creative and before you know it, you’ll be in a better state of mind. Doodling is not just for kids. As I said before Tarot is my main focus & my Tarot deck grew from a session of doodles & provided many years of enjoyment as I completed my Tarot deck, free readings, and Tarot and horoscope sites
You Are Luckier Than You Think:
You have a computer, you have access to the Internet, but you take them for granted, don’t you ?. Well, there are many people who do not have a computer or the internet because they are not as fortunate as you. Some are barely able to feed themselves, some don’t even have a place to call home. The next time you feel you have been cheated in life or just feeling sorry for yourself, think of those who are homeless, gravely ill or living in horrible situations. You will discover just how lucky you really are and you should be rejoicing your blessings. It may be a cliché but can be a sobering experience.
These are pretty simple, easy ways to drive off that “Gloomy Gus” and put a smile your face. We all need a quick pick me up from time to time, so practice getting out of those moods with some of these ideas. You might even think of many other ways you can turn your bad day into a great day. I wish you all the happiness in the World, remember by fostering a positive attitude you can truly create a happier reality.
Developing your Intuition
Developing intuition can actually be a very simple process. By paying attention to your inner voice, analyzing its accuracy, and feeding your mind useful information, you can easily begin to see some pretty amazing results. Everyone is already born with a certain amount intuition. The first step is in realizing that these “hunches” and “visions” are not simply a part of your imagination. This inner dialogue is simply your mind’s way of communicating to you those things of what you are unconsciously aware. These thoughts and feelings can act as a warning of things to come. But how can you improve this ability to a level of which you can actually trust?
The Three Steps of Developing Intuition
Gary Kasparov is one of the world’s best chess players. He realizes that computers have the potential ability to play chess much better than he can, calculating future chess moves much further ahead in the game than any human mind could possibly do. Yet Gary consistently beats the odds and outwits these computerized competitors with his intuitive grasp of the game of chess. When Gary is asked how this is possible, he often states that his combination of experience with his “sense” of what is about to occur propels him to victory.
Are there areas in your life where you seem to have this unique sense of self? The three steps for developing and improving your intuition in order to increase your problem solving capabilities include:
Recognize that you have this ability and encourage its growth.
Study how it works and improve your trust in its accuracy.
Provide your mind with useful information.
Recognize it and Encourage it
There are often times in our lives when we have a certain sense that something just isn’t right. Perhaps you are about to get on a crowded bus, sensing a feeling of dread that something is about to happen. You might even ignore this feeling, choosing instead to get on the bus. After arriving at your scheduled stop, you get off the bus and began walking to the store. You select your grocery items and travel to the cashier, reaching into your purse for your money. It is at this instance that you realize that your wallet is missing. You had it on the bus, and now it is gone. Someone has stolen your wallet.
In other cases, you might be considering the purchase of a certain type of item, perhaps a Mustang Convertible, for example. Then, all of a sudden, you begin to see Mustang Convertibles nearly everywhere you look. In every parking lot, on every city street, and in every neighborhood, Mustang Convertibles of every color seem to magically appear. Developing intuition works in much the same way.
Study it for Accuracy
Whenever your intuition begins to kick in, pay attention to the aftermath. Was your intuition right? Did these hunches come true? In what areas does your intuition seem to work best? Do you have positive moments of intuition or are your intuitive images more negative? As you begin to learn the accuracy of these inner thoughts and dialogues, you can begin to build its strength, much like lifting weights can build your biceps.
Feed your Mind Useful Information
Even Gary Kasparov cannot beat a computer at chess without first spending a significant amount of time learning the game. Intuition is always based on one’s skills, knowledge, and past experiences. The more that you learn about a specific area, the more accurate your hunches and intuitive thoughts will become. Developing intuition to increase your abilities in future problem solving means that you need to work at it, learning as much as you can about the specific areas in your life that you want your intuition to begin to gain power. Only then will you be able to gain more trust in your abilities. When your mind is filled with more knowledge, then it is better able to consciously participate in your intuitive abilities.
Most of my very best psychics and clairvoyants started out on their path to helping others by recognising and encouraging their intuition. It is often by being on the outsie of a person’s situation that you can offer guidance as to what possible paths could lead to a happier more productive existence.
Next time you have a flash of intuition, welcome and recognise it. By combining intuition with a positive outlook, and by being determined to strive towards your goal, you can really leap forward …
Here’s to your success, See you in Wonderland !
Are you searching for your one true love? Are you beginning to wonder if “soul mates” actually exist? If so, don’t worry. You are in good company. Quality relationships that can withstand the test of time can be few and far between, whether you are searching for strong friendships or romantic encounters. Many people believe that there is only one true soul mate while others believe that there can be several to choose from. The important thing to remember is to never give up. Here are three different schools of thought that many people try to implement into their daily search for true love.
Visualize every Detail of your Ideal Match
This is more than just what the person should look like. What does he do for a living? How tall is he? What color are his eyes? Is he a “dog person” or a “cat person”? What does he like to do in his spare time? Is he quiet or gregarious? What type of music does he like to listen to? Is he clean-shaven, or does he have a goatee and mustache? How will you meet him? Is he strong and confident? Or is he a “go with the flow” type of guy? What does his voice sound like? Does he wear cologne? If so, what does he smell like? Imagine every minute detail possible to help draw a mental picture of your perfect partner. By creatively crafting a highly detailed mental image, you will be far more likely to finally recognize your soul mate when you finally do meet him.
Be the Kind of Person that would Attract your Ideal Match
Although most people would say that changing yourself in order to attract potential soul mates is a bad idea, there is nothing wrong with focusing on those qualities that you already possess which would tend to attract this type person. Enhancing these characteristics and making them more obvious in order to entice these potential romantic relationships is always a clever idea. What type of woman would your perfect mate be attracted to? Does she have long hair or short? What type of perfume does she wear? Does your perfect mate prefer the bowling alley to the opera? If you are spending time searching for your one true love in the wrong locations, then you may be in for a very long wait.
Open your Mind to All Possibilities
Then there are those who believe that love can be found in nearly any type of physical package. After all, beauty always eventually fades. All too often, many of us focus mainly on the exterior. If the man of our dreams also happens to have a great personality and a kind heart, then we sometimes just consider this a nice little bonus. Consider reversing this thought process. Look for the inner qualities that you will admire for years to come. Relationships built on physical beauty and lust very often burn out quickly. True soul mates are built on a foundation of like sensibilities, attitudes, and lifelong goals. Open your mind to all possibilities, and your heart will follow.
We all have questions that offer no clear answers, questions regarding our life purpose or why choosing the right path seems impossible to do. It’s difficult when we cross lines on religion, life-after-death, just what is “our soul or spirit” or whether psychic phenomena is for real. Just what is physical reality vs un physical reality? We watch reality shows that chase ghosts or speak to celebrities’ dogs! It’s no wonder, as a society, we are pretty skeptical when it comes to psychics and psychic readings. There are people who can not find fulfillment in their quest for answers, but are hesitant about seeking the assistance of a psychic. Many believe psychics are cons from some bizarre side-show, staring into crystal balls and wearing gypsy costumes.
Due to the fabulous 30’s and 40’s Hollywood movies, conjure up the images of Lon Chaney seeking a fortune teller who, in turn, tells him, “yes, you are going to turn into a werewolf!” Most people believe that witches and werewolves are superstitions based in eras where civilization could not explain elemental or medical situations. Unfortunately the psychic has fallen into that murky pond as well.
In many cases, people experience unwanted situations constantly repeating over and over without understanding why. They want desperately to understand why things happen to them, but don’t have the beliefs or abilities to find the answers for themselves. These people want answers but are afraid to step outside their comfort zone when it comes to psychics. There are people who do move beyond the skepticism and truly want to find a “genuine” psychic help. The most common problem is finding a psychic they believe is genuine.
You might be pleasantly surprised to discover there are true psychics out there but you must seriously look in order to find them. Finding a truly gifted, competent psychic can be daunting when sifting through the masses of con artists and charlatans.
Finding The Real Deal: Text A Psychic
Finding a genuine psychic is indispensable in understanding many matters that have been left unanswered. There are ways to decide whether a particular psychic reading is for real or just locus-pocks.
A genuine psychic does not concentrate on the amount of money they will make from some ambiguous reading. A genuine psychic will concentrate on a situation and try to help people find the answers they are looking for. A psychic with real abilities seeks answers from a variety of mediums including tarot cards, trance meditation or rune stones. Their interpretation should be very clear and easily understood by their client. A psychic of any caliber knows that listing celebrities, kings and queens as reference points is probably not reality. Plus, if this were the case, most of us wouldn’t be able to afford these people.
Con artists like to use strange elixirs and tactics to frighten you into believing only they can protect you. A true psychic reading should give you enlightenment and answers to your innermost concerns. Not frighten you to death!
A psychic will try and help you change directions that have led you down an unsafe path. They understand their role is to give insight for improving your life and help you make the right choices. He or she will try and help you recognize various situations you have not been able to see for yourself. A genuine psychic reading should offer advice and show you new ways or paths to resolve your problems. Some times people have dark and dangerous things going on in their lives. These people need to understand, in most cases, they have created these situations themselves, even though they might not realism it. A true psychic, like a psychiatrist, will never tell you what you should or shouldn’t do. They will try and help you find ways to undo the negatives going on in your life, by allowing you to make positive choices on your own.
The Psychic Reading Is A Tool: Text A Psychic
You should be able to understand terminologies and ideas with a good psychic reading so you can easily relate to it. A true psychic wants to help you understand your reading, so you can control your own destiny and move to a positive place in your life.
Unlike con artists and popular opinion, a real psychic reading is not about telling you everything you want to hear like all the good fortune you will reap down the road. A good reading tells you things you need to know that have an affect on your life for both good and bad.
Internet Psychics — The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
As I am sure you are aware, online psychics are in the thousands and more new sites pop up every day. Many of these people are not reputable and should be avoided. The really good psychics are few and far between and when found, they are perfect little gems. You need to do your homework and take your time to find the real deals. A psychic worth their salt will give council and let you know the paths you are taking and the changes you need to make. Telling you the winning numbers for the next lottery is just crazy and you know it!
When searching for a true psychic, there are some things you can look into for credibility. First and foremost checkout their feedback and reviews, then read through their profiles for experience and knowledge. Reviews are essential because other customers are not going to lie about their experiences with this person. This will also give you a good insight into what to expect, if you choose to work with this person. Customer reviews are without doubt one of the very best ways to find out about a psychic. If they have a great deal of negative feedback it’s time to get out of Dodge! If they are receiving really good feedback and you feel really good about this person, then pursue it!
Their profile should give you a great deal of information regarding what they do in readings and what specific areas are their strongest points. Their modes of divination should be listed in the profile. They should list what methods they prefer to use such as; runes, tarot cards, tea leaves or some other method. You should be able to find out how much experience they have and their overall qualifications.
Their qualifications should also include their strongest points such as clairvoyant or something else. Reading through their profile will give you excellent information regarding this person and their abilities.
Test The Waters First:
It’s always a good idea to try out a psychic’s process or style before purchasing a reading. Many sites have different specials that are worth looking into. Some psychics offer chat rooms where you can just talk, ask questions and get to know them. Getting to know the psychic will help you decide whether you have a good feeling about this person. Others offer some free time before you have to commit to a full reading. Many offer a small charge for the first time users, in order to find out if this is for them. Above and beyond all else, the idea is to see if you feel connected to this person and do you feel comfortable with them. You should avoid sites that either “hide” their fees or won’t offer a first time special to test the waters.
When you finally decide on someone for your psychic reading, I hope you truly find the answers that will improve your life and help you choose the right paths for years to come. When you do find the right psychic, you will know, your instincts will kick in and you will have found the perfect match. Finding the right psychic for yourself does take some work, perseverance and some of homework. Never choose a psychic just because they have a really cool site with flashing mystic symbols. That’s not what you should base your decisions on. Don’t get sucked into the silly! You want the kind of quality that will help find a fulfilling, happy life and the answers to your questions.

Fresh back from the Isle of Avalon & my crystal quest continues, I was drawn to Labradorite that is said to focus Psychic abilities & create abundance. Now that I have started to feel the benefits of crystal therapy I am increasingly drawn to items that I can wear on my person that have a specific vibration. Famed for it’s magical abilities & the ability to transform darkness into light, Labradorite has long been on my radar, though I hadn’t yet found the perfect example to add to my collection. I consulted my trusted Tarot deck I knew that now was the time to hunt down my magical friend. Having spent time with my siblings, a sister who is completely open to any New Age phenomena & brother who could not be less open, I chose Saturday to trawl the alleys of Glastonbury, searching for the specific piece that spoke to me. After a little research I really wanted something that would compliment and augment the moldavite ring which had such a powerful affect on my life. (My moldavite experience is in this blogpost (click here). This time I was drawn to a silver & gold ring holding a dark stone carved in to the shape of a scarab beetle. Later that evening at dinner ( with my non believer brother ), he kindly said that my new friend looked like a ‘wine gum’, however previously in the Glastonbury shop, as the sun caught the stone, on an unusually hot October day, I was captured by a blue flash from deep within the stone. As the knowledgeable shop owner showed me the ring he mentioned that the stone in this ring was Labradorite, a hard stone that did have flashes of luminescence and hailed from, among other places, Madagascar. When he mentioned to me that Labradorite had an affinity to Moldavite, enhancing magical transformation, I was sold, & left proudly displaying my new acquisition to friends & family.
After a superb lunch listening to the uplifting sounds of a fabulous brass brand drifting through the sunshine, I was drawn to return to the store to find out more about my latest impulse purchase whilst a friend was perusing an item he had admired earlier. The knowledge of the shopkeeper was amazing & from my notes this is what I gleaned about Labradorite.
The key purpose of this stone is to enhance magical development, offering protection and enhancing any positive affirmations. Affecting all chakras this stone is perfect for breaking repetitive patterns of destructive behaviour & for accelerating psychic development, especially Clairvoyance & work of the inner journey on the self. The shopkeeper (who had by now taken on almost Shamanic qualities to me after some seriously interesting flashes of intuition ) told me that the interaction between my new Labrodite purchase and my original Moldavite ring would prove interesting, for sure.
As I write this refreshed and revived after a whirl around Glastonbury, the magical Tor, clattering through the countryside towards London. It has dawned on me that my journey into crystals, New Age techniques and other worlds has been raised a notch. I think it is time for another session of acupuncture & meditation, possibly Tai Chi. How will these new experiences interact with my lifelong study of Tarot ?, we will shortly find out, having placed my new purchase on my third eye and my oldest trusted Tarot deck, I think this ring is set to stay on my finger for a very long time to come …
Interesting Facts for the 2013 Harvest Moon
The Harvest Moon 2013 for the Northern Hemisphere comes quite early this year. Night and day merge at the same time for the Autumn Equinox, when night & day are roughly the same length. The September Harvest Moon for this year falls on the night of September 18 and 19, depending on where you are around the globe.
During this night, the fullest, brightest moon can be witnessed. Regardless of where you are in the world, this full moon, emerges at the same time as sunset, giving the appearance of being low in the sky. The reason for this optical illusion is that full moon is opposite the sun making the moon appear full and larger than normal.
So can you look for the Harvest Moon on other nights? Of course you can. The Harvest Moon fun is not limited to the nights of September 18, 19 or 20. At northerly and middle latitudes in the Northern hemisphere, the moon looks full and bright around these nights. You will witness a bright, round moon in the sky which rise around the sunset time highest at the middle of the night. The process of moonlight nights describes the Harvest Moon. Before electricity, a bright harvest moon was welcomed by farmers gathering the seasonal crop.
Harvest Moon is only a name. Basically it is the name for the full moon that is closest to the autumnal equinox.
What make Harvest Moon so special is the early evening glow that can be produced. Each full moon will rise around sunset. Right after the Harvest Moon, you get to see the moon rising in the east soon after sunset for few days at the northerly latitudes. The delay time between the moon descending will be slower. Due to this, it appears as though there are many full moons—for a few nights around the point of the Harvest Moon.
The Harvest Moon is like any ordinary full moon. It is not really brighter, bigger or more colorful than other full moon though you might think it is. The reason for this is that in some months, the full moon is nearer to us in orbit compared to others and so it appears to be much bigger. However, the distance of the full moon will depend on where on its orbit the moon is.
There is no connection between the Harvest Moon of each year and the location of the moon in its orbit. It varies each year. The Harvest Moon 2013 is quite close to average-sized full moon. It was June this year that the biggest full moon was seen and people call this supermoon.
You might think still that the Harvest Moon will look brighter, bigger and more colorful. That is because the moon has a powerful mystique. A lot of people look for it shortly right after the sunset, and this year is even more exciting as Venus & Saturn should also be visible. After this, the moon will be near the horizon and it will just have risen. The location of the moon close to the horizon is what causing the Harvest Moon to appear orange in color and bigger. The moon has always fascinated me, and my Moon Tarot card is often placed under my pillow to aid meditation on the meaning of this mysterious card .
Just as the Autumn equinox, or Mabon, blends day & night, reality & illusion can be confused under the power of the Full Moon & dreams can be exceptionally powerful & revealing. Listen to your intuition !
Details for the Moon Tarot Card
My mother is now in her mid eighties. I remember when I was a child it seemed that pretty much every situation had a superstition attached to it. Crossing on the stairs, stirring with a knife ( stir up strife ! ). It is amazing how these routines can stay with you throughout your life. Just the other day I was having lunch with a friend & a robin landed just next to us. My friend laughed as I frantically crossed myself, as in my Irish heritage a robin landing near you was a sure sign that someone was about to die !. In fact a lot of the Irish superstitions I remember from my childhood had meanings of impending death when I think about it !.
The four leaf lover at the start of this post was found by myself when my mother, obviously fed up with me, sent me out & told me not to come back until I’d found a four leaf clover or a leprechaun. Well the little people evaded me that day though the clover still exists. In fact if you click on the image yout too can make a wish with my online wishing well.
My first Irish Psychic reading
I still remember my first reading with a wise old Irish psychic lady as if it was yesterday. It was all about how the angels had given me a challenging life & scared the wits out of me, ending thankfully with “but at least you’ll die peacefully in your bed an old happy man with your family at your side & the angels waiting to take you over ” …
I was traumatised by that reading for years ! Which is why it is important to seek out a psychic who has been recommended by someone you trust.
Are you Superstitious ?
Are you one of those people who are ready to walk an extra mile so as to avoid stepping on a crack, or crossing the path of a black cat? Do you often stop to salute a magpie that you happen to see? Don’t worry, you are not alone. According to a research conducted recently, more than 70% of people can’t get through with their day without some or the other kind of superstitious gesture.
Perhaps you might not be the superstitious type, but you end up avoiding certain situations that are associated with bad luck or misfortune. Most of the times, our attitude and core beliefs, tend to be cultural in nature. This is exactly the case with superstitions. Almost every culture of the world is driven by certain beliefs and superstitions. In effect, our superstitions define who we are, what we think and how we feel about the outside world.
According to religion, superstition is the irrational fear of something that is mysterious, or reverence for objects that do not qualify for worshipping. These are basically claims of a certain type, such as, if X happens, then it will be followed by Y, where according to the rules of logic, science and simple common sense, there is absolutely no connection between X and Y. Hence, by their very nature, superstitions do not stem from logical thinking.
If superstition is a thing of ignorance and darkness, then question arises regarding their widespread reach. Is it possible that more than half of the world population would be knocking on the wrong door? This is one of the questions that have intrigued researchers beyond measure. Many have tried to establish a link between these superstitious beliefs and different types of psychological maladjustment and cognitive weakness in people who believe in them. Others believe that it has more to do with the strong human drive of making causal connections. When this drive gets converted into overdrive, crazy superstitions ensue.
Since ancient times, most of the superstitions have a way of passing from one generation to the next. Primitive people were not aware of the wonders of science and were largely at the mercy of nature. Almost all the natural elements like sun, moon, water, fire, wind, storms, etc. were respected and worshipped. Prayers and sacrifices were offered to satisfy Gods and ward off evil spirits. Thus, in a way, one can say that it was fear which gave rise to superstitions.
There are some common superstitions which are followed by people, all over the world. Belief in ghosts, witches and spirits, the cry of birds like ravens and owls, mewing of cats, etc. are some superstitions which are shared all over the globe. Most of the Western countries still regard ‘13’ as unlucky because of the Last Supper wherein Lord Jesus and his twelve disciples dined together, and later Jesus got crucified. Similarly, spilling of salt is considered as bad luck as it is associated with lies and treachery, thanks to Judas.
During the wedding season, gifting a set of knives to the bride or groom is considered as bad omen as it is believed to break the bond of friendship. The Greeks believe in warding off nightmares by placing a knife with a black handle under the pillow. A ladder, when leaning against the wall, makes a triangular shape that is believed to invoke the Holy Trinity. Thus, walking through it leads to desecration. In case you happen to break a mirror into pieces, your soul is believed to get shattered in the same way. According to an age-old Irish superstition, if an empty rocking chair is left rocking, it will act as an invitation to evil spirits to come and occupy the empty space.
Today’s world is largely governed by the principles of Science, and everything is explained by means of evidence and experimentation. In such a scenario, superstitions have a very little role to play. With the increase in knowledge, these baseless beliefs generally tend to take a backseat. However, the superstitious beliefs are so ingrained in our cultural aspects of life, that uprooting them completely is nothing less than a Herculean task. Hence, there is still time when people will not think twice before crossing a black cat’s path.
I hope all your wishes come true ! All the best, Paul x
Faith: Your Life’s Invisible Coach
Whether it is through organised religion or something more esoteric, it has been shown that people with faith in something generally lead a more fulfilled existence. Sometimes when we lose faith in our beliefs, or even ourselves we can feel as if we have been left floundering, with no purpose or direction.
Sometimes, you may just develop the feeling that the whole world has abandoned you. During these challenging moments, you frantically search for the proper response to your dreadful woes. Your attempts to pacify your mind just continually fail because of the gravity of the misfortune that haunts you at the moment. You cannot spare yourself from anxiety and everything around you seems incapable of empowering you.
You begin to lose your supposedly strong belief in your capabilities. During your dire moments, you think there must be a person or another entity that will save you from the endless darkness or you may end up totally giving up on everything. When everything seems to completely fall down, you are kept intact by a final endeavour for retaining your sanity. Such entity is invisible, inaudible and intangible. People call this entity faith, your life’s invisible coach. Most of the time that invisible entity is you, it is you that ultimately creates your reality.
For you to exist harmoniously and peacefully with other people and yourself, you have to rely on a lot of things. Maslow, a known theorist during World War II, mentioned that there exist motivational levels, which compel humans to become optimistic and efficient individuals.
Humans begin with the fundamental physiological necessities, such as food and a place to live. Later on, people look for social safety. They eventually aspire for love and aspire to belong to a particular social group. Eventually, humans strive for the ultimate goal of a harmonious human mind. This ultimate goal is called self-actualisation, which means a successful integration of the various fields of necessities into one’s self.
It cannot be denied that you have means for gathering the mentioned necessities and making them your actual reason for self-contentment. However, the portrayed scenario brings about the possibility that you may be lacking in acquiring all the presented necessities. This imagined inadequacy compromises the stability of the entire hierarchy and you may end up returning to the company of self doubt.
Although the first five necessities continually exist for people to acquire and integrate, the hierarchy requires a strong base and a durable top layer. When the hierarchy collapses, you may hang on to a thin but very tough layer. From that layer, you can climb your way up to the higher levels that you require to attain. By the time your quest delivers you to the highest level of self-actualisation, you’ll be able to bind the hierarchy using the same layer.
Your life coach then enters the picture. Believing in the invisible and keeping the belief that it will secure your sanity is a feat that is greater than self-actualisation given that it exceeds the typical functions of the human mind and physical understanding.
Alternative fuel for the soul
Many people learn to revive from the ashes over and over again, the human condition is very resilient. However, there are also numerous unfortunate souls who permit them selves to be completely consumed by their hardships. Keep in mind that as long as you live, you can still steer yourself away from the imagined abyss of self doubt and into the track of wellness.
You are provided a mind that thinks about what must be done, a body that acts out your various tasks, and a heart that enables you to overcome gloomy situations. The heart, body and mind constitute the soul. It may remain existent even in the absence of the other, and it is situated within your mind.
The invisible coach motivates you and everybody else to keep on living. Just like everyone else, you are not capable of seeing, touching, hearing and fully understanding it; however, everybody is certain about its existence. You must keep in mind that your soul requires a form of motivation. You must faithfully provide an ethereal fuel that appropriately matches your ethereal spirit.
Faith means believing that you are still capable of continually living a happy life, even if you have apparently been abandoned by the physical world. You must feed it to your soul to retain your fundamental existence. Your soul’s fuel may come in the form of a deity or something else similar. Although born in to a catholic background I actually feel happier around buddhist ideals. In fact it was my Irish psychic granny who first led me to challenge my beliefs. Your beliefs persistently influence you in a manner comparable to what a truly dedicated life coach does. It is just different from all the physical life coaches you may ever meet by being unseen and by being the most powerful one there is. Whatever you believe in, whatever drives you, it is important to focus that energy continuously to power your life forward.
Stilling the mind
I try to still the chattering in my mind at least once away, moving my conscious mind away from the thousand ideas & questions to the back of my mind, allowing the thousand things to continue, while I try & decipher what is truly important for me in that moment.
Chanting has helped me a great deal in the past & you can focus your mind through the power of chant on my chanting page here, it uses flash so doesn’t work on iDevices unfortunately. : Buddhist Chants
Whatever you believe, whatever your faith, remember to always believe in, and love yourself, first.
All the best as always
I wrote recently about my night watching the meteor shower in Crete. I thought I was lucky to see just a few. However having returned home I found friends of mine had been far more successful & seen tens of shooting stars !. Gutted !.
If you are a star enthusiast, or a lover of all things beautiful then the annual Perseid meteor shower should be added to your yearly calendar. It certainly will be added to mine.
Each year between the last week of July and the first week of August, Earth passes through the orbit of the Swift Tuttle comet. This is a spectacular site to see as the comet is close enough that you are able to watch as its meteors streak through the night’s sky at more than 100,000 miles per hour.
Just before dawn when the night’s sky is still dark, is the best time to view the Perseid meteor shower. If the skies are clear all you will be able to see the meteors with your naked eye—no binoculars or telescope necessary. If you are lucky you will see more than 60 shooting stars per hour.
To view the Persied you will need to find a spot that is nice and dark, and far away from the bright lights of the city. If weather permits the meteor shower is visible anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere. To check your local weather conditions for the annual meteor shower you go online to AccuWeather.
If you will be venturing out for the next Perseid annual showers you may be curious as to how to best enjoy the natural fireworks display. Below are some common questions for viewing:
Where Should You Look In The Sky?—Anywhere other than the moon or any bright lights. The shooting stars will come from the northeastern sky, but they can appear as quick streaks that pass through the whole sky.
Where Is The Best Place To View?—Look for a place that is dark, far away from buildings and city lights, and has an wide unobstructed view of the open sky.
What Time Is Best For Viewing?—This will change from year to year, but is typically sometime between midnight and dawn. For the exact day of the week watch your local news, go to AccuWeather, or look on your favorite astronomy websites.
What If It’s Cloudy Out?—If it is cloudy out it significantly reduces your odds of being able to enjoy the view of the passing shooting stars. Hopefully you will have better luck next year!
Should You Bring Viewing Equipment?—You can bring binoculars or a telescope but you don’t have to. You will be able to see the shooting stars clearly with you naked eye.
Can You Photograph The Shooting Stars?—It is possible to photograph shooting stars, but you will need a wide lens, a tripod, and an ISO of 400 or 1600.
Even if you are not an avid stargazer, a sweeping display of shooting stars is quite a sight to see.
The Autumn Equinox is fast approaching, this year it will fall on the 22nd September. As I drew my daily tarot card today I saw the familiar harvest scene of the Seven of Pentacles, signifying that now is the time to reap the rewards of previous hard work.
All about the Autumn Equinox
Scientifically speaking, Autumn Equinox is the time when we have equal nights and days. Thus, Autumn Equinox is an astronomical point where the earth slightly bobs on its axis. The exact dates when this event takes place may vary by few days depending on the year, but it normally takes place between 21st and 23rd September each year. In other words, this is the time the sun is crossing the equator as it heads southwards; hence, we experience a momentary duration of equal nights and days. Before this time, we have longer days than nights, but after the Autumn Equinox, the nights are longer than the days.
The Autumn Equinox is also called the Mabon (pronounced as MAY-bun or MAH-bawn). The Autumn Equinox marks the time when the harvest is winding down, or simply stated, it is the mid-harvest season. Many pagan and Wiccan traditions use this time to give thanks to the gods for the blessings we have, including wealth, and crops. Also, the pagan tradition gives thanks for the waning sunlight during Mabon as they store away the crop harvest.
Mabon is seen as the time to reap what you sow; it is the time to celebrate nature’s balance and providence. Also, the Druidstake this time to pour libation to the god of the forest (what they call green man). The libation may be in the form of wine, fertiliser, or herbs. The Wiccans celebrate this time as the time when the aging goddess transforms herself from mother to crone. Indeed, this is the time when nature is in a perfect balance.
Also, Mabon is taken as the time to look forward on the future in order to plan for it. So, as you celebrate the rich harvest, you rest from the hard work. However, as you rest, you are now supposed to look forward to the future. The traditions hold that Mabon must pass; that the sun god must be mourned as we transit from summer to winter; thus, winter represents the goddess’ loving arms.
During Mabon celebrations, rituals are held, and some songs are recited to give thanks for the riches which have been bestowed upon mankind. The rituals performed during Mabon involve such symbols as gourds, wine, acorns, apples, vines, pomegranates, pine cones and dried seeds. Other rituals performed during this period, apart from pouring of libation, include adorning of graves with acorns, leaves, and pine cones to pay respect to those who have gone before us. It also involves walking in the forest, and scattering offerings in the bare fields where the harvest was taken from. All these rituals are aimed to bring security, prosperity, and achieve harmony and balance.
The recent Full moon really shook a lot of people up !. Not only was it a so called ‘blue moon’, it was the second full moon to fall under the spell of the astrological sign of Aquarius which is a sign associated with thinking. Or, under the emotional stress of the Full Moon, over thinking . Many people scoff if you say you are affected by the moon but as the moon affects the tides why then should it not affect us ?, after all we are mostly comprised of water. I believe the pull of the moon can indeed stir up our emotions. During this time anxiety can run high & we can fall prey to constantly challenging our reality, and what we can do to improve our lot.
Identifying when we are anxious or stressed, caused by lunar activity or not, is one of the best things we can do to release ourselves from self defeating patterns of doubt that can hold us back in our daily lives. Now is the time to face our fears & strive to squash doubts & limiting beliefs or behaviours, to finally take control & live a more fulfilling existence.
In Tarot The Moon represents dreams & the subconscious, and therefore encourages us to discover the unknown.
I truly hope the recent lunar activity has left you in a happier space & wish you, as always, only the best …
On August the first I honoured this special day in Crete during the first day of a much needed holiday. To mark the start of the harvest we certainly dined well & agreed to release of fears & move towards the blue moon of the 21st with renewed energy, contemplating exactly where we were going to direct our energies for the next few months.
There are many & varied ways of respecting this tradition, here are just a few of the traditions & rituals to give thanks …
How to Do a Lammas or a Lughnasadh on Your Own
When the summer solstice comes to an end to welcome the autumn equinox, Lammas (or Lughnasadh/Lughnasad to others) marks a day of contemplation for witches, wiccans and pagans. Often celebrated on the first day of August, this momentous event also represents the very first harvest and the festival in honour of the Celtic Sun God, Lugh. This is also the best time for pagans to face their worries or fears and find means to protect their homes, their loved ones and themselves. Even when living in a modern world, there is a ritual that you can do to venerate gods and goddesses.
Know the Purpose of Your Lammas Ritual
Before you embark on a Lammas or Lughnasadh ritual, it is imperative that you carefully recognise the purpose of your endeavour. I like to focus my attention, either with a guided meditation or by performing a special New Age Tarot reading. On a piece of paper, write down your specific worries, fears, and doubts eating up your system. On another separate piece, indicate how you will tackle these issues and on how you will carry out your protection responsibilities. Always be specific what you write to affirm your intentions.
You will need a broom, candles, salt water and a bell or a drum to cleanse your space. Sweep away all residual energy in your area of worship. Wipe it clean, too. Before casting a circle, sprinkle salt water on the intended area. Fire up your drum or ring a bell as you begin your chant or hum. This will help eliminate negative energy in your space. Candles should be in yellow, orange or brown in colour to represent Lammas harvest goods. Have two white candles, too, for the ritual itself. After placing your “lists” on an altar, clean yourself through a short bath.
Welcome each “guardian” coming in from the North, East, West and South direction as you cast a circle on your sacred space. Always invoke each of these guardians’ protection for your worship circle done in a clockwise manner. Let the circles powerful energy course into your being to make your body one with the Earth.
Summoning Lugh into Your Circle
One important aspect in your Lammas or Lughnasadh ritual is to invoke Lugh and a Mother Goddess into your circle. Light two white candles to welcome their presence. When it is time to read or chant your fears and worries asking Goddess Mother and Lugh for help, burn another white candle. Meditate and focus on what answers you get. Release your fear thereafter by burning the paper using any of the coloured candles. It is important that you burn your list on a container without letting any ash or residue falling on the floor, your circle and, especially, on your altar. End this by giving thanks to both deities.
Break Free of Negative Energies
Do a “widdershins” or counter-clockwise motion when breaking the circle casted. Begin by releasing each guardian in the manner you welcomed them – one by one and according to the same order. Remember the ash from your “negative” list? Do not forget to bury them away from your home. Again, end your “devoking” by expressing gratitude on the guardians.
Important Considerations on a Lughnasadh or Lammas
For those who want to celebrate a Lammas, preparing food and fun activities after the ritual can be done in a garden. This will be a perfect time to cook organic food, share gifts and spend time with loved ones.
Last night I was lucky enough to have spent a fantastic evening in beautiful Elounda in Crete, watching the sky for shooting stars. Though we didn’t see as many as we would have liked great fun was had by all & it was a truly humbling experience, at the same time making us realise how small we are in relationship to the Universe & also how connected, as friends from around the world commented on this magical event.
The fun started with an app of all things, our Cretan host told us that in Elounda we should look towards the constellation of Perseus, a demi god-of Greek mythology, for the best views. I downloaded an app on to my iphone & we identified Perseus in the totally clear night sky & began our vigil.
This app was truly fantastic as when the constellation was recognised a ghostly outline of Perseus appeared over the stars. We left for our beds realising that we often spend too much time looking into ourselves, or just noticing our immediate experience. Perhaps we really need to look at the truly bigger picture & remember that everyone, and everything on our beautiful planet really is connected ….
Apparently tonight is another chance to see this relatively rare phenomenen, so again we will be looking to the stars ….. Quote : “Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.”
― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
I have had ANOTHER major life shift, are these old ( & new ! ) bones strong enough ?.

I can’t tell you how amazing this revelation has been, it really has revolutionised my life !. Lucid dreaming ….

Create your perfect future with Lucid Dreaming
Imagine a world where all obstacles in everyday life are put aside. You can fly to the stars; have super powers to fight off your enemies or visit Hawaii and Paris in a matter of minutes. Dreams are a part of us but what if you could control what you are dreaming? Lucid dreaming is this concept of being aware that you are dreaming and thus having control over dreams. It is the state of mind where the conscious and the unconscious mind are open to each other. Imagine the power of being able to interact with your make believe world.
Being an intensified state of realising dreams, lucid dreaming is a quest to self-realisation. Very vibrant, colourful and incredibly alive, lucid dreaming is an out of the world experience that shows us what our mind can do subconsciously. In other words, putting the deepest areas of our minds to explore, invent and transform.
Ever wanted to have an immortal body that never got burned or injured? Imagine facing your worst fears with great courage and overcoming life boundaries. Lucid dreaming will take you there and let you even taste the sun, walk on fire and much more. To begin, one has to become aware of the surroundings and pay more attention to every detail. Form a habit of awareness during the day as it is vital to becoming lucid. Have that unconditional trust in yourself and stand up against your worst enemy-You! Once you embrace yourself fully, prepare to a journey of self-discovery and mastery as experienced in lucid dreaming.
Many have been surprised with what they have stumbled upon while lucid dreaming. This might just be the drug of choice in answering those intimate questions we have no answers to. One can command the dream character to respond to what your purpose in life is your greatest fantasy and how you can overcome depression? These answers may just be within you but can only be revealed in lucid dreaming.
It costs nothing to engage in lucid dreaming but the results are astounding. A better way to enlighten and liberate yourself, lucid dreaming does require some effort an energy to harness the ability. Keeping a dream schedule is extremely important as is recognising the best time to have a lucid dream. Strongly associated with REM sleep, lucid dreams commonly happen right before you wake up. Better yet, you can set the alarm clock and once you are awakened, try and remember the dream as much as possible; then return back to rest and keep this train of thought when you fall asleep. Without realising it, you are practicing the MILD technique.
A world where you are the king of the world with no boundaries and anything is possible is just what you will get in lucid dreaming. Try it and be amazed at how much fun and refreshing the phenomenal dream world is!
Follow your dreams, this is your chance to shine ! … Lots of love, Paul

What’s in the Power of a Text Message?
Imagine this scenario; you are in a business meeting or a class and very caught up with what is being discussed. The mobile suddenly beeps to notify a new message, and since you do not want to ignore it, you take a quick peek only to read “I love you.”
No one has told you that in a long time and suddenly you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The day has just gotten better. That is the power of a text message. Combining the power of love and the promptness of a text message can just change a person’s life and make them elated for the rest of the day.
Statistics prove that, 98% of the text messages sent are opened compared to emails, tweets and Facebook comments. This means that sending a special message via email and SMS there is a more likelihood of the recipient reading the text message over any other communication means. This is quite surprising but also essential as you will now choose the most efficient form of communication.
Sending a text message makes someone happy
In this day and age where we are all wrapped up in daily stresses both at work and home, it’s quite easy to forget to say these three magical words “I love you” and if left unsaid for a long time, the relationship can eventually lose its spark. One of the most opportunistic means of conveying this message is by sending a love text message during the day. Simply sending a heart-warming text message that seeks to compliment the other person will definitely raise one’s spirit and attitude. So much so, that people who have received messages at the spur of the moment have remarked that the bad feelings or mood just vanishes away. Broken relationships have also been rekindled using this method by simply texting “I am sorry and will always love you.” The magic of a carefully worded text message has been so much felt that mobile companies have also devised packages of sending free messages to help those who have trouble coming up with words to express themselves.
Love text messages are being used in therapy
Sending a text message is so imploring and pleasing to the recipient and can reduce depression. Routine texting to patients with depression enables them to feel connected to others. Moreover, therapists can also track the patient’s moods by sending message such as “How happy are you on a scale of 1 to 10?” Simply put, if sending a text message can alleviate depressive moods, then why not make it a habit and help someone you love.
Not going away
With everyone in today’s world owning a hand set, sending a text message has replaced the old pass-a-note form of communication. The text messages are stored in the phone once received and can be referred to once in a while in the future. No doubt the power of a text message has proved its worth in for many years. Make someone special happy, send them a text right now telling them they are loved !.
What are the Benefits of Meditation?
I use meditation when I am revisiting one of the keys of the Tarot, to help imprint the messages deeper in to my mind. Today I have studied Key 17, The Star and it’s related Tarot meanings. The Hebrew letter Tzaddi corresponds to the fish hook, which is quite relevant as by meditating on something we are effectively ‘fishing’ for details that we are as yet unaware of.
In today’s overworked, overstressed and high anxiety world, the benefits of meditation are more valuable than ever, and can be applied to almost anything. If you’re keen on gaining mental clarity, controlling your emotions better and focusing on your life goals, meditation can be one of the most vital tools that you have. What many people don’t realize is that meditation is not only excellent for your mental health but for your physical health as well.
For example, meditation has been shown to boost immunity and people who are recovering from cancer. The findings of the study conducted at Ohio State University showed that, when practiced daily, meditation actually reduced the risk that breast cancer would recur. Another study showed that, after a month of intense meditation practices, natural killer cells were boosted in elderly patients, something that can give them a much higher resistance to viruses and tumors.
Meditation has been used to maintain emotional balance for eons. Indeed, many have used it to cure emotional states that were unhealthy and even neurotic. When a person can cleanse the consciousness of negative emotions it increases their true freedom immensely and balances their life like never before. Unburdened by negative emotions, meditation allows the true person to come out.
Are you trying to become pregnant? Several studies have shown or suggested that meditation can increase sperm count and sperm motility and that women who use meditation on a regular basis have an easier time conceiving.
Irritable bowel syndrome is a problem that millions face every day along with its symptoms of diarrhea, constipation and sometimes severe bloating. At the State University of New York, results of the study where patients were put through a meditation and relaxation program two times a day over several weeks showed that they are irritable bowel syndrome symptoms decreased significantly.
One of the findings of a Harvard Medical School study showed that meditation could actually lower a person’s blood pressure by making their body less responsive to specific stress hormones. The findings showed that meditation had a similar effect as that of many different types of blood pressure lowering medications. The esteemed British medical Journal conducted studies also and found that, when trained how to meditate, patients showed blood pressure that was significantly lower.
Inflammation is at the root of problems like heart disease, asthma, skin conditions like psoriasis and arthritis. What’s one of the main causes of inflammation? Why it’s stress, something that meditation can help to lower. Using meditation, a person can switch off nurse dress response and reduce inflammation, something that will go far towards helping the many different types of health problems that it causes.
One of the main benefits of meditation is that it can give a person access to true calmness. For many people, when an upsetting thought occurs it is the trigger for upsetting actions and emotions. For people who are practiced in the art of meditation, there is no such thing as upsetting thoughts, there are only thoughts. The person who meditates will find mental tranquility that can be a life changer.
As you can see, meditation is truly powerful. Using medication you can not only get a calm, emotionally balanced life but you can also tack a number of years onto your lifespan. If you’re looking for more information on meditation, please let us know and we’ll be glad to answer them.
What is Psychic Power? and what types of psychic abilities do some people possess?
Depending on who you are, how you were raised and what types of things you believe in, psychic powers or abilities may seem a bit scary, and of course in some cultures ridiculed or derided. The fact is however that psychic abilities, while they hover in a bit of a ‘nether world’ between the known and the unknown, can actually be developed and used in very positive ways. It has been said that everyone has psychic abilities but only a very few actually realise and develop them. The void between science & the metaphysical has according to some started to shrink, with recent studies into ….
If you are still new to the world of psychic powers and abilities a good definition for them would be that they are a type of ‘6th sense’, which is any sense that doesn’t rely on the basic five senses that most of us are born with. These senses, if you didn’t know, are our sense of sight, our sense of touch, our sense of taste, our sense of smell and of course our sense of hearing. The term that some people use when someone has a psychic power is that they have a metaphysical ability or extra sensory perception (ESP).
Many people wonder if psychic powers and the power of intuition are the same and yes, in some ways they are very similar. Many experts believe that intuition is a type of altered consciousness and acts as a sort of precursor to someone developing their psychic powers. Some people believe that psychic abilities are extremely strong intuition or intuition at a high level.
The fact is, all of us are born with a sense of intuition that is quite heightened. As children we are curious about everything in the world around us and, in many cases, we are able to make connections between people, places and events that often seemingly have no connection at all. Many children create imaginary friends and indeed whole worlds and even new languages. As children our dreaming is also very active and in many cases the knowledge that we gain while we’re awake overlaps with the knowledge that we gain while we’re in bed, dreaming.
Sadly, once a child reaches school-age they begin to be processed into society, with parents and teachers constantly telling them that the thoughts they are having are either wrong or should be ignored. The average child quickly learns to push their intuition to the side, something that unfortunately happens all over the world to millions of children everywhere.
In many circles, including scientific, people believe that humans have reached the point where they need to start actively developing their intuitive or psychic self. Many believe that this will lead humans to make better decisions and live better, happier lives. It is also believed that through our psychic abilities and intuitions we are able to connect with the divine and indeed that any intuitive or psychic powers that we may have is a reflection of this.
As that hasn’t happened yet, most people who care to look more deeply into their lives will need to seek out help of people who have developed their psychic skills. With that in mind would like to present a list of all the different types of psychic powers and abilities that are currently known. If you’re looking for help from a psychic, this list may help lead you to the right one for your needs. (We’ve put them in alphabetical order just for the sake reference.)
When someone has the power of Astral Projection they have the ability to leave their body and travel as a spirit to a different place or location.
Someone who can Read Auras has the power to actually see energy fields that can emanate from other people and sometimes animals. Many times a person realises that they have psychic abilities because they see someone’s aura.
If you are psychic power is Automatic Writing it means that the words that you write down on a page don’t come from you or your conscious thought but come through another outside intelligence and guidance.
If you are able to hear someone or receive messages from hundreds or even thousands of miles away you may be Clairaudient and blessed with the ability to hear sounds that are beyond the sound range of most people.
A person with heightened physical senses is known to be Clairsentient. People that have this ability sometimes call it a ‘gut feeling’.
One of the most well-known psychic abilities is the ability of Clairvoyance. Contrary to popular belief a clairvoyant does not necessarily have just specifically the ability to see the future but instead the ability to see things that are possibly hidden from sight, far away or otherwise removed from a regular person’s five senses. A clairvoyant can sometimes also get images in the form of symbols and other pictures.
When a person is able to have communication with nonphysical beings or energies (think angels or ghosts) they are said to have the ability to Channel. Through them, the otherworldly being will have a voice or other form of communication.
Any method that a person uses to predict a future including fortune-telling, prophecies and precognition, is said to be using Divination.
If you are a person that can use a specific type of rod or stick to locate lost items and especially to locate water, your psychic power is called Dowsing.
If you are an Empath you can sense other people’s emotions and sometimes there residual emotions as well. To an empathy who has not been trained to use their power, these emotions can be quite confusing as they sometimes feel like the person’s own emotions. For many empath’s going to a public place and being surrounded by large crowds can be quite overwhelming. Similar to someone who can read Auras, many people realised that they had psychic abilities through their empathy.
Someone who can see into a possible future or even the past is called a Far-See and relies on energy patterns to see what the future will look like based on their outcomes.
A category of psychic that is quite broad is the Healer. Interestingly enough, many healers realise that they have this psychic ability when they begin to notice that people around them are always upbeat, more energetic and feel better when they are around. Some healers use prayer to help others while some use the ancient laying of hands as well as visualisation and often times manipulation of energy. Reiki is a form of energy manipulation that continues to gain popularity
Intuition is something we’ve talked about already and many believe is the precursor to psychic powers.
If you are a Medium or you are able to receive messages and people who have died. This is a well-known psychic power and quite popular.
Although not generally associated with psychic power, having the power of Mind over Body means being able to suppress your natural need for things like food, water or sleep.
Do you know about things that are going to happen before they happen? If you do you may be a Precognitive. Someone who has the power of precognition doesn’t necessarily have the power to know every single detail about the future, since it is a dynamic and ever changing construct, but is still able to see the type of outcome that a specific course of action. Occasionally these flashes into the future are quite detailed.
Similar to this is a Premonition.
If you are able to touch an item or a person and receive information from the touch, you are said to have a psychic ability of Psychometry. A person who has this psychic power would be able to touch her and object that is owned by a particular person know details about them.
If you have the power of Pyrokinesis you are able to use the power of your mind start fires. (You are also cordially invited to come to our next barbecue.)
The use of a reflective surface such as a Crystal ball or pool of water, in order to be able to view future events is called Scrying..
One of the most famous of psychic powers is the power of Telepathy. A telepath is a person who can hear others’ thoughts and ideas will and also send their thoughts produced to another person. This is one of the most studied forms of psychic abilities in the world and the one that’s always gathering the most interest from the investigative sciences.
A person who has the power to move an object solely with her mind is said to have the power of Telekinesis.
Someone who uses tools such as tarot cards, crystal balls, tea leaves and even stones in order to determine things about another person is sometimes said to be a Tool Reader.
Transvection is the ability to levitate your own body or to fly, such as some Yogis or spiritual master.
Depending on the situation or the need that you have, the people who have these psychic abilities may be able to help you. We hope that this blog and detailed list have been not only interesting but valuable and we wish all of our readers the best of luck with finding the psychic they need.
I am constantly looking for meaning and a way of harnessing the energy all around us. We are all also facing a never ending onslaught of noise and distraction in our ever increasingly busy world. My main focus is of course my Tarot study and readings. Whilst conducting a personal reading recently I became aware of blockages in my body that I can only describe as ‘pressure points’, the quest to clear these blockages led me to have a session of acupuncture that turned out to be one of the most amazing hours of my life. I REALLY didn’t fancy having needles, however fine, inserted in to me, but in the end the results were incredibly liberating. The effect of that session had repercussions throughout my life, you can read more about acupuncture here. Interestingly the therapist, the most relaxed man I think I have ever met, mentioned to me that he thought I would benefit from Tai Chi, that has been floating around in my mind for a while now so I thought I would look in to exactly what Tai Chi was before deciding whether to follow that path.
Tai chi chuan is an internal Chinese martial art, named category in Chinese neijia.
This martial art style is also recognized as a form of moving meditation.
The philosophical principles of tai chi chuan refer to Taoism and Chinese Alchemy.
The relationship of yin and yang, the five elements, the ba gua (Eight Trigrams), the Book of Changes (I Ching) and the Tao Te Ching of Lao Zi are some of the main references for the understanding of its fundamentals.
The classic texts of Tai Chi Chuan masters guide written by the:
Winning the movement through stillness (Yi Jing Dong Zhi) 以 静 制动
Winning the hardness through the smoothness (Yi Rou Ke Gang) 以柔克刚
Winning fast through the slow (Kuai Yi Sheng Man) 以 慢 胜 快
Tai chi chuan has its roots in China, and is currently an art practiced worldwide. It is especially appreciated in the West by its relationship with meditation (tao yin) and health promotion, offering those who live in the fast pace of the big cities a reference of tranquility and balance.
Yang Chengfu posture of tai chi known as whip (tan pien), c. 1918.
The creators of tai chi chuan based their art on the observation of nature – not only the observation of animals, but in the study of the principles of interaction between the various elements.
As we are part of nature, the knowledge of these principles and how they work within us, studied by traditional Chinese medicine, tai chi show as an effective source of energy that is within us, located in the region of the body appointed by the Chinese of dantian average.
Ideograms that make up the word tai chi chuan mean:
太 Tai means “the greatest”, “the highest,” “supreme”, “absolute”.
极 (or 极, Simplified Chinese), Chi (or Ji) means unique and literally, the highest part of the roof – “ridge”.
拳, Chuan (or Quan) means Fist, here symbolizing “punch”, “fight to the hands-free” (unarmed), “boxing”
Diagram of Tai Chi.
Therefore, some of the possible literal translations of tai chi chuan are: “Fist of supreme ridge”, “fist ultimate limit” or simply “fist tai chi.”
As each ideogram can have more than one sense, there are other ways to translate the term beyond.
In Taoism, where the tai chi chuan originated, the “supreme capstone” or “absolute limit” has the philosophical connotation of “high”, “sublimation”, “cleansing”, resulting, among others, the development of a mechanism emotional defense whereby trends or inferior feelings are transformed into others that are not.
Tai chi also symbolizes the “Cosmo” and the interaction of energetic principles yin and yang, constantly changing and is known to be represented by tu tai chi (tai chi diagram), better known in the West as the “symbol of yin-yang “.
There are five styles of tai chi chuan recognized as traditional by the international community, each named after the Chinese family that created, developed and transmitted. Everyone has the same essence and follow the same basic principles, differing in shape. While martial art, tai chi chuan is based on thirteen core concepts (十三 势 shi san shi). These postures / movements can be recorded in various ways practiced by different styles. Each school interprets these concepts with small variations.
Meet the eight biggest benefits of this ancient art:
1 – The Tai Chi Chuan is a veritable fountain of youth. It activates hormones of youth, strengthens the heart, put in order their organic functions, refines reflexes and balance and helps ward off the signs of age. And for your mood? It’s like opening a window in a stuffy room – a great relief!
2 – For those who hate to exercise and for anyone whose heart together and can not perform strenuous movements, Tai Chi is perfect.
3 – It is great for heart health, as equivalent to a walk of 4 km.
4 – Still energizes and balances blood pressure: The breathing techniques reduce stress and decrease heart rate.
5 – Increases the ability to concentrate and exercise memory, increasing the ability to perform everyday tasks more easily.
6 – Stretch your muscles and joints flexible leaves. The circular slow movements and decrease the tension and enhance muscle endurance and flexibility of the joints.
7 – Improves balance and reduces the risk of falls and accidents.
8 – Improves circulation: deep breathing and movements large invigorate the muscles, increasing blood flow.
I certainly think that I am going to give Tai Chi a try, if it has half the effect that the acupuncture has I will be a very happy man …
10 TIPS FOR MAKING YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE.
It can definitely be said that humans are dreamers and, indeed, we have achieved quite a bit because of it. More than likely you’ve got a dream that you’d love to accomplish, whether it’s becoming a famous Hollywood actor, having a vacation home at the beach or retiring at 50. Dreams come in all shapes and sizes and there are few that can’t be accomplished with a little bit of time, planning and most importantly, persistence. If you’re pursuing a dream but you’re not sure what you can do to make that dream a reality, this blog is for you and will help you on your way. Enjoy.
1. Be as specific about your dream as you possibly can. If your dream is to have a home on the beach with a swimming pool in the back then focus specifically on that. Write about it in a journal, put pictures of similar homes and locations on your bulletin board and go to visit homes like it to see them in person. The more specific you are the better.
2. Your dream must be something you desire fiercely. If it’s not, the chance of achieving it will decrease greatly as there is an increased chance that you give up on it. If you truly believe in your heart that you will achieve something there are few things that can stop you.
3. Write your dreams down and convert them to goals. For example, if you want to be an actor one of your first goals could be to get a part in a local theater production’s play. Once you do that, reset your goals to the next higher level or step. Make achieving your dreams into a process and use goals to compel you forward.
4. Having a plan of action and knowing what you will do once your goals are achieved will help you to move on to the next goal or next step on the way to achieving what you really want. This will be different for everyone but it is a vital part so don’t skip it. Once your subconscious notices the pattern, you will begin to achieve your goals, automatically !.
5.Start taking action today. Once you have a plan of action and goals set there’s nothing that should be stopping you from getting started, except you, so get going !.
6. While you’re doing the things that you need to do to make your dreams come true make sure to take time regularly to stop and visualise exactly what it is that you want. Visualisation is a very powerful means to make your dreams a reality.
7. Review your plan of action and your goals regularly and adapt them as needed. As you get closer to your final destination you may find that your wants and needs change. Those that can adapt to these changes are usually the ones that accomplish the most.
8. Surround yourself with people who support your dreams and will help you to accomplish them. Frankly, it’s hard to accomplish your dreams if you have people in your life that are constantly telling you that you’re on a fool’s errand or that you won’t achieve your goals. As best as you can keep these people out of your inner circle (and out of earshot if possible) and instead surround yourself with people who are passionate about what you’re doing, believe in you and provide you positive support always.
9. Accept the fact that there may be bumps and stops along the way. If you can survive these without losing sight of what you really want you will be well ahead of most people who let these small interruptions derail their dreams.
10. Most importantly, ASK THE UNIVERSE EVERY SINGLE DAY FOR EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT. Say it out loud and say it often. To be perfectly honest, this last tip is stolen from the book ‘The Secret’. It’s just so darn good that leaving it off a top 10 list of things you need to do to achieve your dreams really would be a shame. if your dream is to be a best-selling author then, every day, say out loud “I am going to be a best-selling author”. if it makes you feel silly then swallow your pride and just do it, simply because it works.
And there you have them, 10 excellent tips that you can start using today to make your dreams a reality. I wish you the best of luck in whatever it is that you’re dreaming about and I hope that this blog has helped you today or will help you someday in the future. Sweet dreams!
What is acupuncture and how can it help me?
I recently had acupuncture for the first time, though the actual insertion of the needles was painless, the spasms as the knots in my energy points were released were quite startling to say the least !. If you are an adult that has always searched for alternative forms of healthcare then you have no doubt heard about acupuncture. Used as a preventative healthcare method in China for thousands of years, acupuncture is also today being used in conjunction with Western medicine and treatments. Interestingly, in China over 80% of all people who have had acute appendicitis used acupuncture (as well as other herbal treatments) to resolve the problem without surgery.
If you’re afraid of needles what you have to remember is that acupuncture needles are actually quite small. They are very thin, extremely flexible and, although they penetrate the skin, most patients never experience any type of pain, bleeding or bruising. At worst they may have a ‘tingling’ feeling, a feeling of ‘heaviness’ or a mild ‘aching’ sensation. If you think about the type of needle that your doctor uses to take blood, know that you can fit approximately 12 acupuncture needles into the same size as one standard hypodermic needle.
The benefits of acupuncture are rather varied. People with poor vision and cataracts have been helped by acupuncture as well as people who have sciatica and even depression. If you have high anxiety or insomnia, acupuncture might be able to help you greatly. Some people have even gone to the acupuncturist for tinnitus, which is constant ringing in the ears, with great success.
Frankly that’s just the tip of the iceberg because there are many other reasons to go to the acupuncturist and many things that he or she can help you with. From chronic fatigue to drug addiction and things as diverse as bronchitis and infertility, acupuncture has been successfully used not only in China but all over the world. It can even help with athletic performance.
Recently a national survey of acupuncture patients was taken and the results of the survey clearly show that many people are happy with results of their acupuncture. For example;
• 70% of respondents said that acupuncture helped them to avoid some type of surgery.
• Nearly 84% said that, since starting acupuncture, they were visiting their medical doctor less often.
• Nearly 60% of the people who responded said that they were seeing their psychotherapists less frequently.
• Almost 80% said that since they were taking fewer prescription drugs because of the benefits they were receiving from acupuncture.
One of the best things about acupuncture is that it costs much less than typical medical care. With nearly 1800 practicing acupuncturists in the United States today, and a very high level of training and licensing, acupuncture should certainly be on your list of possibilities if you’re suffering and your medical doctor isn’t able to help you.
An increasing number of people are looking for advice as to where they are headed, how their life is likely to develop. Many people are turning to telephone psychics for answers, and as many psychics are cropping up to provide their services. The question is how do you know who may be able to answer your questions ethically & caringly ?
People consult online Clairvoyants & telephone psychics for questions varying from “What is happening in my love life ?” to ” Am I going in the right direction with my career ?”. Obviously you should really ask these questions to someone who is experienced in the field of personal readings, someone who resonates with you or has been recommended.
I set up my service because I have worked for psychic services where the focus was not exactly on being the most caring, compassionate reader, but instead on the money involved. All psychic services are providing just that, a a service, so obviously there are costs involved & profits have to be made. There are differences though in how ethical the service is set up to be. I have had psychic readings all my life, since I was a small boy. I have also been giving readings almost as long, I think I have the experience to recognise a good psychic reading when I see one, and have switched providers several times until I have found a team of readers that I am happy to endorse. The reviews of my psychic services spur me on to develop my team & strive to provide a psychic service I can believe in.
There are many different types of intuitives who use a variety of different methods to deliver their readings. Yes some use Tarot cards or other divinatory oracles, many though simply rely on their intuition, which is how, I believe they connect remotely via telephone to deliver your psychic reading.
The proliferation of readers on the internet is mind boggling & therefore that can make it extremely difficult for you to find a reader that you feel can deliver you a reading that is genuinely beneficial, giving you pointers as to where your life is set to lead, advice that resonates with you so that you can make your own choices as to what to do regarding your personal path or situation.
I am pleased to say that my recommended readers are very experienced & have been tested many times before deciding to give psychic readings by telephone or text. The reviews that I have received are very heartwarming & I love receiving feedback about my services. Of course if you feel that you are not connecting to your reader, the best thing you can do is to try a different reader, or if you are having a pre-paid reading, finish the call in the first few minutes and re-connect to reception to ask for a different reader who may be able to connect with you better.
You can read the reviews of my favourite psychic readers here & when you feel ready perhaps you can move forward and book your own psychic reading.
My latest acquisition is a gorgeous ring with Black Obsidian, bought to ground and balance me through a challenging though exciting period. Used for thousands of years in healing ceremonies and also in the traditional Japanese art of Feng Shui, Black Obsidian is prized for its healing properties and for the boundless secrets and mysteries that it can illuminate about not only a person’s inner feelings but also about the truth as it applies to humans, the planet and even the universe.
Black obsidian originates from volcanic eruptions, has a deep and highly reflective black color and also a smooth and almost mystical surface. It can be sharpened and has been used throughout history to make all sorts of different tools including cutting blades and the tips of arrows.
Black obsidian is also said to be able to cut through many metaphysical problems such as fear, mental blocks, lies and façades. The wealth of information that can be revealed through the use of black obsidian means that it should be treated with reverence as it can reveal many of the darker, negative inner feelings that a person may have, feelings that may be blocking out the light from their life and holding them back.
The reason that it is so powerful is that it is born of one of the most powerful actions on the planet. When a volcano erupts and its lava cools quickly black obsidian is formed. This incredibly potent energy gives black obsidian a combination of the most powerful elements on the planet including fire, water and earth.
It is because of this that black obsidian can be used to help a person who needs to be more focused and grounded. If, for example, you tend to be the type of person who is very emotional and reacts to the people and events happening in your life on a highly emotional level, black obsidian can help to balance you, clear the fear out of your mind that is causing you to overreact and also help you to avoid distractions and calm other erratic and negative energies. Wearing black obsidian as a bracelet, and anklet or a ring can help to thus ground a person emotionally, keep them positive and confident and reduce their fears and doubts.
When it comes to Feng Shui black obsidian is nothing short of amazing. It provides the element of water that a person who lives in the in a northern hemisphere needs and also provides them a layer of protection in their home while drawing in any negative energy that might be around and keeping this negative energy from causing fear and doubt. It is due to this ability to absorb negative energy that any black obsidian that you own should be well taken care of and cleaned on a regular basis, especially if you are using the crystal in psychic readings.
If you’re keen on using black obsidian for Feng Shui purposes in your home one of the easiest ways to do so is to keep a bowl of the stones in a prominent place. Tumbled stones in a glass bowl are best but you can use a small sphere of black obsidian as well.
Some believe that by looking into a piece of black obsidian in the right light they are able to see the images of their loved ones and pick up thoughts and vibrations as well as possibly see into the future. Obsidian Crystal Balls are said to provide powerful readings, especially around love matters. One thing is for certain; black obsidian is extremely powerful and should be used with care and respect.
I am certainly enjoying the feelings that my new black obsidian friend is providing, if you get the chance, give this beauty a try, the results could surprise you !.
A solar eclipse happens when the moon moves in front of the sun and as a result a thin ring of light can be seen around it, never try & view an eclipse with the naked eye !
Yesterday friends in Australia told me about the powerful solar eclipse, apparently this was an extra special eclipse & those present felt tangible awe as they observed this incredible phenomena. A lot of my more spiritual friends told me they felt a powerful shift as they watched the solar eclipse, and combined with the new moon this is definitely the time to grasp the energy and positivity that is all around us. Any Solar eclipse always fires the imagination and make us realise how small we are in the grand scheme of things, BUT also, just how great we can become if we just allow a small shift in our consciousness.
What did the solar eclipse mean for you ? What did you feel ?
For me personally the eclipse led me to my Tarot deck of course !, the card I drew to correspond to this event was my ‘Death’ card. You can find the true meaning of the Death Tarot card here. It made me contemplate my place in the universe, in the grander scheme of things …
When the Death card appears you have hope where there used to be confusion. Man dies many times in his life before he actually leaves this existence. This is one of those times for you enabling you to leave the past behind & step in to your future with renewed energy. Great changes await you. My meditation on the Death card revealed this : A black flag with a mysterious insignia fluttered, a dark feather fell before me, & then I saw him. As he silently glided past everything in his wake withered & died, rich & poor, young and old all succumbed to him. The Sun quickly set between two towers. Terror struck me as he turned to face me. I heard the voice. “The Sun will rise again, I am Death, the Fool knows not of me. Your life is fear & dreams, will you truly live this life before I come looking for you ?”. Shaken but elated I watched him fade away …
What is no longer relevant in your existence ? What is holding you back from the next phase of your development ?.
I hope this incredible phase powers you forward on your journey. As always I wish you only the best !
One of my favourite recent acquisitions to my Tarot readings space is a beautiful chunk of Black Tourmaline.I have found that rather than distract me from the reading or the person I am reading for, this shiny new friend seems to absorb any negative niggling energy & bounce back very powerful waves of inspiration & positivity. Even though I spent a lot of my formative years wandering the courtyards of Glastonbury among the many mystical shops, marveling at the variety of practitioners. I am relatively new to Crystal energy. Now I am finding it easier to tune in to the frequencies of my growing collection, and this new acquisition was talking to me the moment I saw it. I feel that Black Tourmaline is set to become a favourite & I have heard from several occult & pagan friends that it is renowned for reviving dormant psychic abilities, for revealing previously unconsidered paths in a persons current incarnation. People have been using crystals for thousands of years because of their potent energy and therapeutic properties. One of the most popular, and most powerful, of all crystals is I am now finding, black tourmaline. People in the healing arts prize black tourmaline for its ability to encourage positivity, bring good luck, increase a person’s feeling of happiness and other metaphysical influences. Black Tourmaline is used to increase the intensity of psychic and Tarot readings as it absorbs negativity allowing a positive inspiring reading to develop. Today there are many people that use this wonderful crystal in their homes and indeed even wear pendants and other jewellery created from black tourmaline so that they can take advantage of its powerful healing properties throughout the day. I have just purchased a quite ostentatious but nevertheless beautiful ring so I can keep this new energy with me at all times.
One of the most prized properties of black tourmaline is that it protects against negative energy of all kinds. Unlike many other types of crystals, black tourmaline does not absorb negative energy, only protect against it. This is significant as some crystals lose their effectiveness over time from absorbing too much negative energy. With black tourmaline however, negative energy is either converted into positive energy or changed in a way that makes the negative energy less harmful.
With the ever increasing amount of electromagnetic energy that we humans are exposed to, black tourmaline becomes even more important. It is believed that EMF waves are dispelled with this crystal, protecting a person’s body from the harmful effects that they cause. Indeed, there are some scientists that believe that EMF radiation is the cause of many of today’s most prevalent health problems, including cancer. Using black tourmaline many people are able to lessen these negative effects and protect their health.
If you suffer from feelings of self-doubt, anxiety or stress and are looking for a crystal that will spiritually ground you, it would be best to have black tourmaline either on your body or close to it for as many hours a day as possible. If you are a positive, enlightened person you may still want to use black tourmaline to protect yourself from those around you who are not and may harm you with their negativity.
It is said that this amazing crystal, if put under your pillow while you sleep, can cleanse your spirit, strengthen your immunity and even relieve the pain of arthritis and other physical problems. Stress, a common health problem that afflicts millions, can also be reduced by having black tourmaline on or around your body.
If you are strong spiritually or psychically and you use your abilities to help others, black tourmaline can be used to help keep you grounded and provide psychic protection. In this case you may wish to use it as jewelry or keep a small black tourmaline crystal in your pocket during the day as you work.
Whether you are a healer or looking for protection from negativity, black tourmaline is the crystal that you need. Its amazing properties have been known for millennia and it should be a part of any spiritual and cleansing crystal assortment.
This new friend is set to take pride of place among my collection, I just hope that the Moldavite doesn’t become too jealous.
April 25, 2013 sees the impressive lunar eclipse. The eclipse will begin at 6:05pm (GMT) and end at 10:10pm (GMT). For most people in the United Kingdom and further west, the penumbral eclipse won’t be visible at the start but will likely be seen by much of Europe and Asia by 8:05pm GMT when it’s at its maximum.
This partial lunar eclipse is at 5 degrees Scorpio, as this eclipse cycle comes to a close now is the time to close the door on negativity, especially around relationships. Any relationship that has survived this period will have faced transformations and emotional turmoil, though will have emerged strengthened because of this. New beginnings are inevitable around this eclipse and therefore has been preceded by a period of uncertainty or uneasiness that is set to lift. Balance should return after this phase has run it’s course, it is certainly not a time to try and take control, just hold on and enjoy the ride!.
What Is the Lunar Eclipse?
The penumbral eclipse happens when the moon, Earth and sun are all in alignment and the moon passes behind the Earth – so it goes into its shadow. Anyone who is witnessing the night time will be able to see the eclipse, as long as the weather conditions are perfect – the sky will need to be clear. An eclipse can only happen when there is a full moon.
There are two lunar eclipses every year – 2013 sees an eclipse in April and October. The lunar eclipses will not always be the same level of intensity, depending on the positioning of the three masses.
Viewing the Lunar Eclipse
People will be aware that viewing a solar eclipse with the naked eye is dangerous. This isn’t the case with lunar eclipses. The light of the moon is actually dimmer than its natural light, which makes it safe for all.
The eclipse will also last for a longer period of time. Typically, solar eclipses last for a few minutes but, as the times show, a lunar eclipse occurs for a few hours. Of course, it will be impossible to see anything until the sun has set.
Mythology Surrounding the Lunar Eclipse
Like with many other astronomical events, there is much mythology surrounding the lunar eclipse. The Ancient Egyptians believed that the moon was being swallowed by a sow for a short period of time, while other cultures believed that other animals were swallowing it – the Mayans believed that a jaguar was swallowing the moon.
In some cultures, the moon was being swallowed by demons. They believed that curses and throwing stones would bring the moon back and rid the night sky of the demons.
The penumbral lunar eclipse will start at 6:05pm on April 25, 2013. It will last for about four hours and will be visible by the majority of Northern Africa, Asia and Europe, with some of the Eastern States and Canada catching part of it.
Remember this eclipse closes a phase and endings are inevitable, heralding new starts and challenges in early May.
As always I wish you only success !.
Some of my very best psychic readings have been delivered by telephone. Many of my recommended psychics & clairvoyants have given one to one readings for many years before realising that they are able to help people over the telephone.
Of course they may rely on whatever tools they are skilled with, be that the Tarot, Clairaudience or one of the many other forms of psychic ability.
There are many terms & conditions that a good psychic readings company must follow by law before they are allowed to offer psychic readings by telephone.
Which Psychic reader ?
Generally it is a good idea to seek out a reader who has been recommended via family a friend or colleague, also it is important to follow your intuition !. If you are not connecting with the reader then maybe politely end the call & try again another time. Not every reader connects with every customer, and it can take time to develop a rapport with a reader.
Many of my favourite psychics and clairvoyants have been giving psychic readings by phone for many years. When starting out as a telephone reader they will have had many test readings before being allowed to connect to a live questioner. Most of the professional psychics I know are genuinely concerned with helping anyone who seeks them out for a reading.
How can you make a psychic connection over the telephone ?
All really good readers use different methods to tune in to the person they are reading for, sometimes readers make better connections face to face. However if a psychic or clairvoyant can make a connection & give a good reading at a distance, for example by telephone, that always impresses me more as it shows that they are relying purely on whichever psychic skill they have developed.
If you are looking for a psychic reading seek out recommendations & as I have said learn to trust your intuition !.
As always I wish you only success !
Anу modern day individual will dеfinitеlу find it hаrd tо grasp thе whоlе concept оf zodiac signs аnd horoscope matches. In fact, mоѕt people thеѕе days dо nоt bеliеvе thаt horoscopes оr thе planets hаvе аnуthing tо dо with оur lives. Whilе western belief strongly suggests thаt аll wе hаvе tо blame fоr оur mistakes аnd fоr оur situations in life iѕ оurѕеlvеѕ аnd thе bad choices thаt wе make, people frоm thе еаѕt think otherwise.
Eastern culture hаѕ аlwауѕ bееn аbоut thе mystical – аbоut things thаt human knowledge аnd skill саnnоt explain оr аbоut happenings thаt аrе bеуоnd оur control.
Eastern culture believes thаt thеrе iѕ a force bigger thаn us, аnd iѕ responsible fоr making things hарреn in оur lives. Thiѕ greater force defines whо wе are, tells uѕ whаt wе аrе like, аnd еvеn point uѕ tо thе right person wе ѕhоuld marry аnd spend thе rest оf оur lives with.
Contrary tо hоw people оf thе west sees marriage, eastern belief sees matrimony аѕ оnе оf thе mоѕt sacred аnd holiest things thаt саn hарреn in one’s life. It iѕ ѕо precious thаt оnе саnnоt afford tо make mistakes in marrying thе wrong person. But thеn аgаin thеrе iѕ nо certainty thаt thе marriage оf twо diffеrеnt people will work, еѕресiаllу whеn thеу belong tо diffеrеnt backgrounds, culture, religion, аnd lifestyle. Thе Hindu Tradition рrоvidеѕ a solution tо thаt dilemma – with horoscope matches, оnе will bе аblе tо determine thе success rate оf marriage in advance.
Undеr thе Hindu context, horoscopes аrе called Kundali. A Kundali iѕ made short аftеr a child iѕ born. Tо make a Kundali, essential natal information iѕ nесеѕѕаrу ѕuсh аѕ thе date, thе time, аѕ wеll аѕ thе рlасе оf birth. Thiѕ information iѕ laid оut аnd will bе analyzed ассоrding tо thе relationships аmоng thе three. Whаtеvеr thе result is, it will tеll аbоut thе child’s future life, including hiѕ education, health, finance, marriage, number оf children, аnd ѕо on. During a wedding, horoscopes аrе vеrу important deciding factors. In fact thеу аrе ѕо important thаt priests аnd astrologers nееd tо bе consulted firѕt bеfоrе pushing thrоugh with thе wedding plans.
If уоu think thаt matching horoscopes iѕ easy tо do, thеn уоu аrе terribly wrong. In fact, thе process оf finding оut horoscope matches iѕ bоth complicated аnd carefully done. Matching thе horoscopes оf couples is uѕuаllу dоnе аt thе initial stages оf thе wedding preparation, аnd it will dictate if thе mаn аnd thе woman ѕhоuld bind thеmѕеlvеѕ undеr thе eternal bond оf holy matrimony. Thеrе аrе еight determining factors thаt will hеlр figure оut if a mаn аnd a woman will hаvе a bountiful marriage оr not. If thе еight factors match well, thеn thе couple iѕ believed tо hаvе a successful married life together. Eасh оf thе еight factors hаѕ itѕ оwn significance in thе life оf thе couple, ѕuсh аѕ spiritual, character аnd temperament, аnd еvеn sexual compatibility. Finding оut if thе couple match in thоѕе areas will tеll if thеу аrе compatible in life оr not.
It muѕt bе pointed оut thоugh thаt thеrе аrе mаnу cases whеn feelings wоuld simply соmе in thе wау оf reason. Thiѕ means thаt a person оr a couple mау opt tо disregard thе analysis resulting frоm thе test оn compatibility with thе uѕе оf thе horoscope. Thе uѕuаl rеаѕоn fоr thiѕ iѕ thаt оnе оr bоth partners аrе аlrеаdу ѕо muсh in love thаt thеу dare tо continue thеir relationship еvеn if thе heavenly bodies, оn whiсh thе horoscope iѕ based, dо nоt ѕее аnу good future fоr it. Undеr ѕuсh circumstances, it iѕ аlwауѕ thе couples thеmѕеlvеѕ thаt determine thеir fate. If thеу continue with thеir rеѕресtivе relationships, thеn thеу ѕhоuld prepare thеmѕеlvеѕ fоr thе possibilities оf painful breakups аnd оthеr similar incidents. Defying thе horoscope signs саn bе bad fоr thе individual оr fоr thе couple.
Thiѕ iѕ thе rеаѕоn whу it iѕ bеѕt tо learn аbоut compatibility lоng bеfоrе a relationship hаѕ bесоmе deeper. A couple mау think thаt bесаuѕе thеу hаvе bееn tоgеthеr fоr a rеlаtivеlу lоng period оf time, thеу саn аlrеаdу make it in thе nеxt stage, whiсh iѕ marriage. Yоu muѕt remember thаt marriage iѕ аn еntirеlу diffеrеnt thing frоm dating оr courtship. In fact, it iѕ during marriage thаt couples whо uѕеd tо enjoy great romance ѕо muсh wоuld begin tо realize thаt thеу аrе nоt meant tо bе fоr еасh оthеr аftеr all. Thiѕ iѕ indееd a problem thаt muѕt bе averted.
Thе bеѕt wау tо prevent ѕuсh disappointment in life frоm occurring iѕ bу learning аbоut horoscope matches еvеn bеfоrе уоu аnd thе individual with whоm уоu hаvе mutual attraction соnѕidеr establishing a ѕеriоuѕ relationship. Thiѕ iѕ tо make ѕurе thаt уоu will nоt tаkе аnу step furthеr tоwаrdѕ greater expectations. It iѕ a fact thаt mоѕt people whо hаvе bееn hurt muсh bу failed relationships аrе thоѕе whо аlѕо put tоо muсh expectation оn these. Whеn уоu think thаt уоu will bе tоgеthеr with уоur loved оnе fоr аѕ lоng аѕ уоu аrе alive, it will surely bе difficult fоr уоu tо overcome thе pain оnсе уоur relationship ends. People whо tаkе thеir romantic relationships lightly, оn thе оthеr hand, dо nоt face ѕuсh possibilities. Thiѕ dоеѕ nоt mеаn thаt уоu ѕhоuld nоt bе ѕеriоuѕ in уоur relationship though. Instead, уоu juѕt hаvе tо make ѕurе thаt уоu аnd уоur partner аrе rеаllу compatible bеfоrе уоu tаkе уоur relationship tо a higher level.
Althоugh thе uѕе оf thе horoscope tо analyze compatibility mау nоt ѕееm scientific аt аll fоr people in thе west, easterners соuld point оut аt mаnу examples thаt wоuld prove itѕ accuracy. If уоu totally disbelieve in thе concept though, уоu асtuаllу hаvе thе freedom tо think so. However, уоu ѕhоuld remember аlwауѕ thаt thе mаin intention rеаllу iѕ tо make ѕurе thаt couples ensure thаt thеу аrе compatible bеfоrе taking thе nеxt major step in thеir relationship. Thеrе iѕ nоt doubt thаt thiѕ iѕ a vеrу scientific notion. Therefore, уоu ѕhоuld ѕtill соnѕidеr thiѕ аѕ уоu continue tо develop уоur relationship with уоur loved one.
Benefits оf a Love Horoscope
A good love horoscope саn bе bоth informative аnd entertaining. It саn make uѕ laugh аnd it саn make uѕ think. Daily horoscopes mау occasionally touch оn thе subject оf love, but thеу’rе rеаllу tоо short tо соntаin muсh substance. On thе оthеr hand, a thоrоugh love horoscope includes extensive details аbоut уоur personal relationship. It саn рrоvidе ѕоmе vеrу valuable insight.
It hаѕ bееn ѕаid thаt love iѕ a beautiful thing. Indееd it is. But it iѕ аlѕо оnе оf thе mоѕt complicated emotions wе’ll еvеr face. Whеn wе fall in love оur еntirе perspective changes, it’ѕ nо longer “I”, it’ѕ “we”. Thiѕ compounds уоur life completely. It affects уоur thoughts, уоur actions, hоw аnd whеrе уоu spend уоur money, whеrе уоu live, work, eat, sleep… nееd I gо on? Love iѕ muсh mоrе thаn ѕоmе romantic, warm feeling. Bесаuѕе оf its’ complexities, it саn challenge uѕ in wауѕ wе nеvеr еvеn imagined. And thiѕ iѕ BEFORE wе bring a couple оf kids intо thе mix!
Onе оf thе benefits оf gеtting a love horoscope iѕ thаt it helps bring order intо аn оftеn chaotic situation. Bу chaotic I mеаn thаt thеrе аrе juѕt a lot оf nеw details involved. Thiѕ abundance оf details саn gеt overwhelming аt times. Bу separating аll thоѕе details intо thеir component parts, a love horoscope makes it easier tо deal with еасh оf thеm separately, оnе piece аt a time.
A good love horoscope саn bе likе gеtting аn unbiased ѕесоnd opinion. It iѕ unaffected bу emotions аnd iѕ thеrеfоrе аblе tо assess things mоrе clearly. It hаѕ nоthing tо lose оr gаin frоm thе situation. In a wау it’ѕ likе finding thе bеѕt therapist in town… еxсерt a whоlе lot cheaper! In addition, it lооkѕ аt уоur individual traits frоm аn astrological point оf view. Thiѕ аllоwѕ thеm tо bе incredibly enlightening.
Thе оld adage thаt “love iѕ blind” iѕ unfоrtunаtеlу based оn fact. In thе еаrlу stages оf a love affair wе dоn’t аlwауѕ ѕее things аѕ thеу асtuаllу are. Wе wаnt tо bеliеvе thаt оur nеw love interest iѕ thе bеѕt thing ѕinсе sliced bread. But аѕ timе gоеѕ on, аnd life knocks uѕ аrоund a bit, reality hаѕ a wау оf opening оur eyes tо thе facts… bоth good аnd bad!
“Love Blindness” саn make a person deny thаt a problem еvеn exists. It’ѕ rеаllу ԛuitе complicated. A persons’ desire tо hаvе сеrtаin traits in thеir partner саn make thеm fabricate thоѕе traits in thеir оwn mind. Or it саn work in reverse. Thеу mау subconsciously knоw thаt thеir partner hаѕ ѕоmе traits thаt thеу dоn’t like, but thеу аrе unwilling tо consciously admit it. Eithеr way, thеу’rе setting thеmѕеlvеѕ uр fоr a measure оf difficulty in thе future.
In addition tо bеing “blind”, love ѕееmѕ tо bе a bit оn thе un-intelligent side. Wе’vе аll dоnе things оut оf love thаt wе wоuldn’t dо otherwise. Things likе jumping intо buying a house wе саn’t afford аnd thеn trуing tо furnish it with brand nеw furniture. Thiѕ iѕ nоt intelligent! Thеrе аrе a lot оf foreclosed houses оut thеrе bесаuѕе people made decisions based оn love inѕtеаd оf good financial reasoning.
Thе belief thаt “love will find a way”, iѕ a hazardous presumption. It presumes thаt juѕt bеing in love iѕ еnоugh tо overcome аll adversity in life. Whilе it’ѕ true thаt a strong love relationship саn support people emotionally thrоugh tough times, it iѕ nоt in itѕеlf gоing tо fix аnу problems. Eасh аnd еvеrу problem muѕt bе dealt with in a rational manner. An in-depth love horoscope саn kеер уоu mоrе focused аnd rational, аnd lеѕѕ likеlу tо operate оn аn emotional basis.
Still, аftеr аll thе dust settles, love iѕ a beautiful thing. It hаѕ brought mоrе good tо оur world thаn аnуthing else. It hаѕ givеn people thе strength tо dо things thеу nеvеr thought thеу could, аnd tо accomplish things thеу nеvеr thought possible. And it рrоvidеѕ a togetherness bеtwееn people, whеthеr thеу bе undеr thе ѕаmе roof оr аrоund thе world.
When you embark on a relationship you may be ‘swept off of your feet’, every look, every text, all of their idiosyncrasies make your heart flutter. The trick to a LASTING relationship is learning to love the person you have chosen AFTER the initial whirlwind has died down. All of the best relationships I know are based on love that grows when the initial spark has cooled.
If you are looking for love I truly hope you manifest your desires & meet that special someone soon !.
As an Aries myself, the recent New Moon in Aries has fired my inspiration. I always sleep erratically & have incredible dreams around any New Moon, this one though has reignited my Aries traits of requiring results & change immediately & sharpened my senses. I always have far more spontaneity when my true astrological self is around & make decisions quickly & without regret. The card I drew for the New Aries Moon was the Six of Cups, so the positive side of nostalgia has fired youthful exuberance in to my world & my relationships.

Achieving Sеlf Development
Sеlf development dоеѕ nоt аlwауѕ hарреn overnight аnd it dоеѕ require commitment аnd effort.
Wе саn think оf ѕеlf development аѕ a personal strategy in whiсh wе systematically alter оur attitudes, opinions аnd beliefs ѕо thаt thеу harmonize with thе good things thаt wе desire in оur lives.
Sеlf development iѕ a basic road map in helping уоu tо create аnd improve уоur personal excellence thаt iѕ silently hidden within you. Thiѕ ѕеlf actuation leads tо success аnd happiness in bоth уоur personal аnd business life. Sеlf development, whеthеr it bе intellectually, economically, оr emotionally, iѕ thе fastest wау tо gеtting frоm whеrе уоu аrе today, tо whеrе уоu wаnt tо be.
It’ѕ a matter оf training уоurѕеlf tо bесоmе aware оf уоur thoughts. It’ѕ аlѕо vеrу interesting thаt thеrе аrе a great deal оf people whо live thеir еntirе lives withоut giving muсh thought оf whеrе thеу are, muсh lеѕѕ оf hоw tо сhаngе it. Yеt mаnу оf thеѕе people will spend endless hours pursuing thеir goals аnd ambitions whilе аll thе while, fighting thеmѕеlvеѕ in thе process, simply bесаuѕе оf ѕеlf doubt аnd thе inability оf nоt bеing аblе tо ѕее thеmѕеlvеѕ аѕ hаving accomplished thеir goals.
Thiѕ is, оf course, a major rеаѕоn whу thе lack оf preparing уоur innеr ѕеlf first, will аlmоѕt аlwауѕ lead tо disappointment аnd failure. Learning tо recognize аnd tо accept аll parts оf уоur innеr ѕеlf will hеlр immensely in overcoming аll negative thoughts аnd propel уоu tо thе heights thаt уоu desire.
Creating a ѕеlf development plan, ѕuсh аѕ a ‘mission statement’, саn basically bе a personal strategy in whiсh уоu will bе аblе tо alter уоur opinions, beliefs аnd attitudes ѕо thаt thеу mау harmonize with thе good things thаt уоu desire in уоur life. Thеѕе goals mау bе tо create ѕuсh things аѕ mоrе happiness оr wealth. Thеrе аrе absolutely nо limits.
Hаving learned tо firѕt bеliеvе in yourself, thе path tо self-development bесоmеѕ muсh easier. In thiѕ ongoing process, уоu will соmе tо realize уоur full potential аnd уоu’ll аlѕо ѕооn ѕее уоurѕеlf in a completely nеw аnd diffеrеnt light. Nоthing in life iѕ mоrе important thаn knowing уоurѕеlf аnd thеrеfоrе bесоming thе master оf уоur оwn destiny. Withоut thiѕ strong internal belief аnd knowledge, mаn constantly falters аnd unfortunately, nеvеr reaches hiѕ ultimate potential.
Bу removing fear, whiсh iѕ a major deterrent, will аllоw уоu tо gаin thiѕ elusive knowledge within. Thiѕ in turn, will hеlр assist уоu in obtaining a bеttеr understanding оf hоw bоth уоur imagination аnd mind operate in tandem, thus, bringing fоrth уоur desires intо reality. It hаѕ bееn proven timе аnd timе again, thаt whаt wе think frоm within, hаѕ a direct reflection оf thе kind оf life thаt wе experience оn thе outside.
Bу hаving a bеttеr understanding оf thе weaknesses’s аnd power thаt уоur thoughts аrе capable оf producing, will hеlр in nоt оnlу boosting уоur confidence level, but will аlѕо hеlр in opening uр mаnу nеw opportunities tо pursue. It iѕ аlѕо thrоugh thiѕ process оf learning thаt wе will discover thаt wе are, indeed, оur оwn worst enemy. And bу gеtting оurѕеlvеѕ оut оf оur оwn way, thеrе iѕ absolutely nоthing thаt wе саnnоt accomplish.
Sо gо ahead аnd tаkе thаt firѕt step. It will prove tо уоu thаt thrоugh experience, уоu will find success wаѕ nоt аѕ fаr аwау аѕ уоu firѕt believed it tо be.
Good luck on YOUR journey !, I wish you only the best .
As Mars moved earlier this year in to my sign Aries, symbolised by the Ram, the first sign of the zodiac, a powerful transition occurred for me. After months of physical problems & uncertainty, my subconscious literally gave me a mental slap & energised me to revitalise my life. Exercise is on my mind to blow away the cobwebs & lose the winter coat, a spiritual cleanse & a sense of ritual always comes on my radar at this amazingly envigorating time of year.
As the Spring Equinox approaches & I know this will be a catalyst for many people (regardless of their astrology) as the official end of winter always puts a spring in ones step.
You can find out what is happening astrologically for you by downloading your free astrological report from here.
The Equinox on the 20th March will be a powerful transition that will lend energy and vitality to the world at large, but what exactly is the meaning of the Equinox ?.
Equinoxes happen twice a year in the months of September and March. This is when the night and day last for about the same amount of time during the day and the equator directly has the sun. Since the seasons are in the opposite on the different sides of the equator, the spring equinox is in the September in the southern hemisphere and in March in the north.
March Equinox on 20, March 2013, 11:02am (or UTC)
Where Does the Name Equinox Come From?
The length of the night and day are almost the same during the equinox – 12 hours each. The word equinox comes from the Latin for “equal night”.
However, the equinox does not necessarily have 12 hours of day time in reality.
When the sun passes the celestial equator, the March equinox happens. The celestial equator is the invisible line directly above the equator of the Earth in the sky. This can occur anywhere between the 19th and 21st March each year. On other days of the year, the axis of the Earth tilts either towards or away from the sun. During the equinox, the axis will be straight.
A Time to Celebrate a New Start
The March-time equinox in the north is the start of spring, which is a time for rebirth and a new start. There are many cultures and religions that celebrate festivities around this time, including Passover and Easter. Many of my pagan friends become extremely excited around this time of year as it really is the time to release the past, move out of the darkeness & embrace positivity & opportunity.
The Importance in Culture
Cultures around the world celebrate equinoxes and solstices and have done so throughout history. Just one happens in Chichen Itza, Mexico at the main pyramid and is the sacrificial ritual of the Mayans.
The Sunlight Snake
Mexico’s main pyramid, the El Castillo, has four staircases on each side of the faces, running from the bottom to the top of each one. There have been many notorious human sacrifices on these steps.
Each of the steps have been built so that they look like the sunlight snake is slithering down – done by a play on the angles – while the equinox happens.
The Mayans – and the people who came after them – developed the ability to create calendars that were dependable based on the equinoxes and solstices.
The most famous Mayan calendar of all is the one that would end on the December Solstice in 2012 at precisely 11:11 UTC. The Mayan calendar was always exact in that respect. Many people thought that this indicated the end of our world as we know it, as we are still here I sincerely hope that the spring Equinox heralds a fantastically successful & transformative year for you.
If you are contemplating using your developing Tarot skills in order to perform readings for friends there are a few important points to remember. Firstly & most obviously how will you remain objective considering that you will undoubtedly know a good deal about your friends circumstance.
I am lucky to have developed a small team of talented readers, Clairvoyants & Psychics who I can refer a friend to. I must say I prefer this option as no unconscious uses of previously revealed information is being passed on.
If I do perform a reading for a friend or close acquaintance I always insist on using the pure meanings of each Tarot card and try & keep my intuition out of the equation. There is so much responsibility involved in giving a reading for anybody, as you can be sure that whatever you say will be absorbed subliminally by the questioner, so it is vitally important to think of what information you are revealing.
No one ever really decides to become a reader, The Tarot finds you & becomes, in my case anyway an all consuming obsession. I definitely live my life through the Tarot, almost as a belief system. even though I work very closely with Psychics & Clairvoyants & don’t feel comfortable with using that term to describe what I do. I prefer to be referred to as simply a Tarot reader or the slightly more esoteric Cartomancer.
When performing tarot readings for a questioner over the phone you will be faced with people just like yourself. You need to have experienced life & love in all of its forms, because you will be faced with all manner of situations related to peoples lives, you must never forget that the situation being faced by the questioner is the most important thing in their lives at that moment of their development.
The Tarot was right …
I started this thread talking about reading for friends, a friend of mine recently considered a major life change. In an excited text message she asked me if she was following the right path. I quickly drew 3 cards, The Ace of Swords, The Three of Wands & the Wheel of Fortune. I blurted out …. ‘the Ace is finely balanced, this Sword could cut both ways, a close choice, The three have you sent your details abroad for consideration, The Wheel as outcome in your favour begins to turn for you …….” A few hours later I got a message from my friend, she said, “The cards were right, The Ace was a choice between me & another, The Three yes I have secretly sent my portfolio / cv abroad, The Wheel, I’ve just heard i’ve got my dream job !!!”
I was put on the spot & the cards came through for me again, though this was a reading for a friend she hadn’t told me of her plans, once you tune in to the cards the information will always appear when needed, that is the synchronicity of Tarot. I am delighted for my friend, though must say in this case, the answer really was on the cards …
Calling a Psychic can be a great way of trusting your instincts about online dating
Nowadays, there are many ladies who are looking for the best way to find their true love, this has always been true & will not change anytime soon !. There are a lot of effective methods that they can do to find their special one, their significant other. One of them is the online dating system. This method is growing in popularity among people, especially ladies; these days there are even specific sites dedicated for people with very specific tastes such as those in uniform for example. There are many online dating sites that many of my friends use regularly, you should trust your gut instincts before deciding which to join. Online dating sites are certainly changing the way people find go about finding romance.
Here are some reasons to consider looking for love online :
1. Ease of use
Most online dating sites are very popular because they are very easy to use. Most online dating sites only require you to register to their sites before you can use their services to find your perfect matches. Some require only as much of your personal information as you are comfortable, such as name, email address, username, and password.
This is another reason why this method changes the way you can search for a partner. You are able to review your choices anytime & anywhere you want. As long as you can get access to the Internet, you are able to peruse potential partners from online dating sites. Nowadays, there are many people who are so busy with their daily activities that normal socialising as a means of meeting people becomes difficult. If you do not have much time in finding a partner to share your life, online dating may be an option for you. These services are very flexible and you can change your preferences at any time
3. Clear information
Most online dating sites require the users to put honest information on their sites. It hopefully means that you are able to see all information about any potential dates. You should find out as much as possible about any dates & obviously consider personal safety as a priority, if you intend to meet someone be sure that it is in a public place & either tell a friend where you are going or take them along for moral support !. Almost all online dating sites allow you to know everything about your partner on their sites.
Online dating can be as effective as other traditional dating methods & can even allow you to ‘throw your net further’, meaning that you can find dates outside of your local environment. Remember that you should never meet your partner before learning about him & following the safety advice above. Make sure that you feel happy with any prospects personality & appearance ( if the image used is current or accurate ! ), and many more before continuing with the big step of meeting up.
Try and establish contact before meeting any potential partner, myself & my psychics & clairvoyants are seeing an increase in people asking about impressions of people they have met online before making the step of meeting up.
If you are looking for love I hope Cupid finds you soon !
I have just had a message from a very good friend of mine saying that she has been approached by a certain Psychic offering free readings. I did a simple Google search and found that this lady was the front of an organisation who offer a free reading & then go on to offer to help ‘remove curses & bad luck etc’ in return for increasing sums of money.
Reputable Psychics are regulated in this country, this isn’t the case however everywhere.
So how do you go about choosing the right psychic? Whether you are trying to choose between online, telephone psychics or psychics you’ll be meeting in person, the tips below will all be helpful in finding a good psychic counsellor or intuitive.
Things to Avoid
- Psychics who approach you – This is primary a problem online. For example, you should avoid psychics who send out email solicitations asking for money.
- Fear and intimidation – Watch out for psychics who try to imply that bad things will happen to you if you don’t continue to consult them, pay them money or who warn about a curse.
- A bad “gut” feeling – Feelings aren’t always the most reliable guides particularly in stressful situations. You’ve probably seen people taken in by charlatans they trust absolutely. However, the sense that something is “off” is nearly always a sign that your instincts are picking up on something your conscious mind has not yet noticed, and you should heed those feelings.
Things to Look For
- Recommendations – Recommendations from friends are best. If your friends can’t name a recommended psychic, though, you may be able to get the names of a few clients from a reputable website as this is a requirement & can indicate an honest operation. If a psychic is unwilling to share these however, it’s not always a bad sign. This type of work requires a high degree of confidentiality. But if you can speak to a few clients, ask them how they felt about the fee and the reading.
- Willingness to share “bad” news – It’s good to get as positive a spin as possible on things, but psychics who will not tell you that a relationship may be rocky or that you are on a wrong path are not very useful. Look for psychics who are able to be measured but honest.
- A legitimate business – There’s nothing wrong with psychics taking money for their services any more than it is for a teacher, a doctor, a social worker, therapist or anyone else who helps the public; everyone has to earn a livelihood. In fact, signs that a psychic runs an efficient business with things like advertising and contact details are actually a good sign.
It’s worth keeping in mind that a psychic who approaches you may also have plenty of ability, but ability alone is not enough. A recommended psychic is best, but there are other many other ways to ensure a good choice & the best is to trust your gut feeling & search out reviews.

Yesterday was Imbolc, the festival that celebrates the half way point between Winter & Spring, a time when the earth begins to warm & come back to life. You can read my post about Imbolc Here
As I sat around with various friends who associate themselves with various faiths & beliefs from Pagan to Christian, Psychic to empath, I smiled as all were checking their various dates on one form of smartphone or another. That is how the Skype conversation arose as several of us have had the app for years. I certainly know that it saved my life when I was living away from home for a few years. I realised that a lot of the people I was with were ‘early adopters’ of technologies. In fact I have just completed a face time call with several to talk about which techniques they use while reading for others, a list of what we discussed is made up from my notes below. When we are not communicating with the different forms of technology, what types of unseen intuitive methods are at work ?.
Mаnу timеѕ оur innеr psychic guru assists uѕ in life decisions. Wе hаvе аll hаd coincidence, gut feelings, аnd premonitions аѕ a раrt оf оur life journey. Sоmе call it thе esoteric, occult, оr nеw age methods. It iѕ оftеn hаrd fоr thе logical раrt оf оur brains tо accept оur intuition. Yеt оur innеr feelings аrе generally reliable аnd wе should givе thеm mоrе credit. Clairvoyants hаvе knоwn аbоut thiѕ common innеr wisdom fоr a lоng time, and I think more and more people are relying on their intuition than ever before.
If wе begin tо acknowledge wе аrе mоrе thаn thе physical bоdу, ѕоmе amazing things begin tо happen. Fоr еxаmрlе wе саn experience dreams whiсh warn uѕ аbоut danger. Wе саn empower оur energy level tо a greater degree thаn еvеr before. Wе can, likе thе rising sun оn a beautiful summer day, shine оur light аnd bе оf service tо humankind аѕ nеvеr before. Thеѕе psychic clairvoyant methods аrе аvаilаblе tо аnуоnе whо puts in thе required work tо gеt them.
Hеrе are some terms & techniques that can work for us.
Precognition. Thiѕ iѕ оur intuition telling uѕ ѕоmеthing iѕ аbоut tо happen, uѕuаllу it iѕ аn event, аnd warns uѕ bеfоrе it happens. Thiѕ iѕ closely tied tо оur intuition аnd оur innеr voice whiсh соmеѕ frоm thе higher self. Our innеr voice аlwауѕ wаntѕ tо protect uѕ frоm harm аnd misfortune. Precognition саn соmе in a dream аnd аnоthеr common fоrm оf it iѕ tо hаvе a bad feeling аbоut things аnd thiѕ means thе bigger раrt оf оur innеr spirit iѕ warning uѕ tо bе careful аnd tо proceed with caution.
Telepathy. As I said wе uѕе mobile phones аnd thе internet tо communicate аnd thiѕ iѕ vеrу handy. Imagine communication frоm mind tо mind withоut аnу external source tо assist us. Thiѕ iѕ telepathy explained in a nutshell. It iѕ whеn уоu аrе аblе tо transmit thoughts intо thе mind оf оthеrѕ аnd dо it purely frоm mind tо mind. Thiѕ psychic method hаѕ bееn investigated fоr mаnу years. I bеliеvе in humanity’s future thiѕ latent human skill will bесоmе mоrе important. If we can reverse the obsession with the distraction of ‘the thousand things’ that distract us, we may be able to start using a part of the large percentage of our brains that remain dormant most of the time.
Chakra energy. Alоng thе spinal column, in metaphysical terms, wе hаvе whаt iѕ knоwn аѕ thе human chakra system. It iѕ thе source оf whаt iѕ called kundalini energy. Shakti iѕ spiritual energy аnd it rests аt thе base оf thе spine in thе tailbone area оf thе back. Mаnу Indian gurus hаvе made a good living frоm teaching westerners hоw tо raise thiѕ sacred kundalini energy аnd whеn it dоеѕ mаnу benefits соmе forth.
Thе chakra system iѕ made uр оf mаin energy centers bеing thе crown, thе third eye, thе throat, thе heart, thе solar plexus аnd thе root energy center. Thе mоrе wе work оn thеѕе thе easier оur spiritual journey оn thе earth plane iѕ аѕ оur clairvoyance grows whiсh lets uѕ rеаd energy in life situations. My interest in Chakras & the crystals that are said to interact with them has recently been re-ignited as I recover from a medical procedure, alongside the pills & potions are Crystals & herbs.
Out оf bоdу travel. Thiѕ esoteric technique involves hаving thе astral bоdу leave thе physical аnd travel tо fаr оff distant places. It iѕ оftеn performed unconsciously but with practice уоu саn gаin control оvеr thiѕ method. A lot оf astral experiences hаvе bееn penned оn thiѕ fascinating subject. It dоеѕ stir thе imagination whеn уоu hear аbоut ѕоmе оf thе оut оf bоdу adventures people gеt uр tо whеn traveling thiѕ way. I am using hypnosis to help in my healing & love being taken on a journey to some fantastic sanctuary in my mind, or out of it.
Thеrе аrе оthеr common clairvoyant methods аnd thiѕ list iѕ a good beginning. Fortune tellers hаvе bееn аrоund ѕinсе thе days оf ancient Egypt аnd hаvе bееn consulted, оftеn in private, fоr thе accurate insight thеу offer.These skills are certainly not going to disappear & I hope many more people will move forward embracing alternative beliefs & Cultures.
I hope that in 2013 you manifest everything you desire …
For many years many people have been viewing the Tarot as a form of therapy.
Thе legitimacy оf thе Tarot hаѕ bееn debated fоr centuries. Sоmе argue thаt thеrе iѕ nоthing mystical аbоut thе Tarot cards. Skeptics bеliеvе thе cards аrе nоthing mоrе thаn pretty painted pictures аnd thеir efficacy оnlу proves tо bе a product оf one’s оwn imagination. Othеrѕ bеliеvе thаt thе Tarot iѕ a supernatural force thаt hаѕ thе power tо open уоu uр tо negative energy оr influences. My personal opinion is that the Tarot is laden with myriad symbols & allows the reader & the questioner to create a rapport, similar to the connection between a client and therapist. In fact many conventional therapists are adding Tarot to their arsenal of techniques.
In truth, Tarot Reading iѕ a tool. It enables uѕ tо peer intо thе innеr workings оf оur оwn lives аnd gаin nеw perspectives. Thе true power оf thе Tarot rеаllу соmеѕ frоm one’s internal self. With practice, thе Tarot аllоwѕ уоu tо bесоmе уоur оwn oracle. Thеу аrе mirrors tо thе self. Similar tо meditation аnd hypnosis, thе Tarot саn bе utilised fоr understanding аnd solving problems. Thе Tarot if used correctly guides uѕ tоwаrdѕ a deeper level оf self-awareness аnd enlightenment.
Whеn it соmеѕ tо Tarot reading, mоѕt readers tеnd tо bеliеve, quite rightly, thаt thе future iѕ nоt absolute. It iѕ flowing, constantly shifting аnd unfolding intо nеw directions. Tarot reading can, however, disclose potential outcomes and/ оr consequences. Thе future саn аlwауѕ сhаngе аnd nеw possibilities remain аvаilаblе tо thоѕе whо seek alternative solutions tо thеir dilemmas. Famously Carl Jung explained that the force at work in a Tarot reading was synchronicty, of capturing a moment in a person’s life. Mоѕt experienced tarot readers will explore thе possibility оf outcomes аnd examine thе influences thаt аrе affecting a specific situation оr issue. Tarot reading рrоvidеѕ information thаt enables оnе tо make bеttеr choices in thеir lives.
Thе mоѕt common theory аѕ tо hоw thе Tarot cards work iѕ based оn thе Tarot’s ability tо hеlр uѕ tap intо оur intuition. The symbols being mirrors to elements in our subconscious. Fоr mоѕt оf us, оur intuition iѕ аѕѕосiаtеd tо оur unconscious. Thе unconscious represents thе hidden aspects оf оur selves. It iѕ whеrе оur soul lives аnd it iѕ оftеn thе driving force bеhind оur behaviours. Thе unconscious iѕ thе world оf self-knowledge аnd personal truths. Thе unconscious holds оur deepest memories аnd experiences. Thе Tarot iѕ a doorway, in fact 78 doorways, of which The Major Arcana reveal the most about ourselves. It reveals thе innеr workings оf оur оwn unconscious аnd enables uѕ tо discover оur оwn personal knowledge.
Mоѕt importantly, thе Tarot is one belief system that enables uѕ tо give meaning tо оur оwn lives. Thе symbolism reflected thrоughоut thе Tarot iѕ archetypal in nature. Archetypes аrе universal themes thаt reflect basic patterns оf human experience. Thеу аrе thе thoughts аnd emotions thаt аrе shared bу all. Thе archetypal imagery thrоughоut thе Tarot iѕ universal in nature. Thеу аrе symbolic оf thе life stages wе journey thrоugh frоm birth tо death. Thеу аlwауѕ reflect wеrе wе аrе developmentally аnd reveal thе significant life lessons wе muѕt соmе tо learn аnd accept.
In my opinion the Tarot is the most powerful technology of untold possibilities.

I have just given a reading to a young lady who’s question concerned her career & whether she would continue as she was, or move, perhaps abroad.
However, the three cards shown in the header for this post made me ask : ” Are you not more interested in your love life ?”. She looked a little uncomfortable & said that she had been told, ( by someone else I hasten to add ! ), that as she had the Queen of Swords as her significator, she was destined to be lonely for a long time & should focus on career.
Well after dismissing the irresponsible previous reading, I said to this lovely lady that as she had pulled not only The Lovers, but also the Two of Cups & the Ten of Cups then romance was certainly circling her reading !
Be Careful what you say !
This is a perfect example to readers that what they say WILL be absorbed by the questioner at some level, it is imperative to frame any reading in a positive way.
My mantra, stolen from Lucille Ball, is ‘Love Yourself first’ & I made sure to impress this on the by now much happier young lady in front of me. I left her with a brief rundown of how to continue the search for that special someone !.
Tips for Looking for a Perfect Partner
In our eternal search for the perfect partner, it is likely that we will hit a few bumps in the road. Knowing exactly what we want in another person is the first question we need to answer. Without a road map of sorts, it will be impossible to know when we find that person. However also bear in mind that that special person may not initially fit in to your ‘perfect description’. That certainly happened to me & I stepped outside of my ‘type’ & 12 years later we are still incredibly happy !
Below are some tips for finding the most important person in your life when you are looking for love.
1. Write down the qualities you want in a perfect partner and keep them in a safe place so you can review them periodically. Be sure to write down the qualities that are “must haves” and the ones that would be nice, but aren’t deal breakers.
2. Never judge a book by its cover. Some people make a good first impression, and some don’t. Go on a second date if the person seems to match your list, even if the first date is less than perfect. Building chemistry can take a few dates. Also try to project the ‘real you’, ‘playing a part’ will get you nowhere fast !
3. Even though it may seem daunting. Join groups where you can meet people who like the same things you do. Mutual interests are a good basis for starting a relationship.
4. Be flexible and give people a chance before you write them off, particularly if they seem to meet your most important criteria.
5. Be bold and try new things to sweeten your odds for meeting that special person. Don’t turn down invitations. You never know where you will meet your perfect match !.
6. Do not compare new people you meet to other romantic partners. Be sure to give everyone a fresh and fair start without prejudging them based on old baggage left over from other relationships.
7. Be yourself. Don’t try and please others by changing who you are. Remember you are perfect for your intended.
8. Go slow. There’s no rush. It is important to enjoy the ride. Romance should be fun.
9. Be flexible with your list. If a person you meet fits the most important criteria and is a lot of fun, then you should forgive them for not being absolutely perfect in every way.
10. Stay open-minded. Looking for love should be an adventure. Try computer dating if you are computer savvy. It has led many people into the arms of a perfect partner. Be sure to use a reputable company !
The most important advice for finding your perfect partner is to never give up. Romance is exciting. Savour every imperfect moment of the search, and eventually you will stumble on the perfect bliss that accompanies all great partnerships.
I hope you manifest all your desires !
I have recently had a total hip replacement & complications. Obviously I am following my surgeon’s & physios advice to the letter, I have though again delved again in to the magical power of crystals and alternative therapies. After consulting with a crystal specialist I was advised to try Blue Kyanite to help with the healing of my surgery. Now, no matter what you think, ( my partner simply rolled his eyes as I placed the large stone I have just purchased next to my new hip ), this is my experience of Kyanite.
Almost immediately I felt a coldness flood through my new hip & honestly began to feel attuned to the vibrations of the stone. Now it may be imagination but I feel the pain easing & the stone has now become warm to the touch.
After some research I have found that Kyanite is the perfect crystal for Aries & is supposed to help with visualisation & positivity. As after my complications a lot of my issues are psychological, I am pleased to discover that kyanite is a powerful metaphysical crystal that helps with not only physical, but also psychological healing.
Kyanite is a fusion of silicon, aluminium and oxygen, these elements are supposed to enable you to connect to higher frequencies & expand consciousness. As a crystal that is said to align the chakras and resist negative energies, meaning that it never needs cleaning. Kyanite is the perfect crystal to move through blocks & encourage yin-yang energy.
Even though I have acquired kyanite for it’s supposed healing qualities & prevention of infection, it is supposed to connect to the throat chakra, encouraging you to accept any blockages, say exactly how you feel and move on from any current conditions. This crystal also encourages perseverance to get through any challenges & is also said to enhance dreams & psychic ability. I will have to wait to see if these last aspects manifest for me, but I certainly intend to take my new blue friend to bed with me to find out !.
