a message about success

Hello, everyone! I received some more guidance that I’d like to share with all of you. In order to be successful, there are two essential things that need to happen. First, it is important to be in a state of gratitude as much as possible. Second, in order to be truly successful, it is important to listen to our intuition and take action according to your inner guidance. If we do these two things, we are able to create success for ourselves.
It may take some time and effort, but the journey is definitely worth it!

insight for today

During meditation, I received some guidance that I wanted to share, and I hope it is beneficial to you in some way. Focus on joy and success rather than fear and stress.
Yes, I can already hear some people telling me that this is easier said than done. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. Ask yourself these two questions:
How can I bring more joy into my life? How would my life change if I focused on joy and success for just five minutes each day?
If you don’t feel able to do this right now, that’s okay. Alternatively, you may want to start by asking yourself what is keeping you from allowing more joy and greater success into your life. Remember that you always have a choice when it comes to how you want to experience life. You owe it to yourself to choose a life of joy and success. Yes, it is truthat you may have days when nothing seems to go your way, but you can still choose your reaction to those experiences.

Please don’t test the medium.

As both a professional and a consumer, I understand the importance of finding a professional who can meet your needs and help you to feel comfortable. However, as a medium, I deserve as much respect as any professional.
There are ways to locate the right psychic or medium for you while being respectful. For example, one can read about my services on my website or visit my social media pages.
However, I do not wish to play a round of test the medium with you. While it is perfectly okay to ask me questions such as how I receive information from the spirit world or how long I have been doing this work, I cannot entertain questions that are designed to test my accuracy. It is not only disrespectful to me, but you are wasting your time as well.
Your loved ones would most likely prefer to let you know that their souls have survived physical death, as well as give you messages of healing, comfort, and guidance. I apologize if I have offended anyone, but these things need to be said.

finding empowering solutions

While I cannot offer specific solutions to our political situation, I can offer my perspective. I will let you, the reader, decide what to do with this information.
As I see it, there are three ways to approach our political situation. There is the passive approach, where some may claim that certain issues do not affect them. However, this approach can be dangerous. Since we are all a part of the whole and we cannot be separated from one another or from God, these issues definitely affect each and everyone of us.
We can also approach our current political situation by becoming aggressive and disrespect one another. However, this approach is likely to inflame the situation and affect relationships.
However, why not explore a more empowering perspective? As someone who is invested in her own spiritual development, I cannot deny the power of spiritual practice. I also believe that there are peaceful ways to support a cause. If I were to come up with an empowering solution, it would include spiritual practice and supporting causes in a way that is respectful. Remember that if we want a peaceful world where our beliefs are respected, it starts with each and every one of us.

three benefits of asking for and receiving help

In our society, there is this idea that we have to take on as many tasks and obligations as possible, preferably without anyone’s help.
While independence is an important value of mine, it can be taken to extremes, and this could have consequences for us.
First of all, we can become completely overwhelmed if we try to do everything by ourselves. This could decrease our energy and increase our stress levels. Also, when we ask for and receive help from others, we are allowing those people to be of service to us.
The third benefit to asking for and receiving help is that we actually increase our ability to receive abundance and prosperity. This is because we are literally telling the universe that we are open and willing to receive. Doesn’t that make asking for and receiving help much more exciting?

how to turn frustration into something useful

Have you ever been in a situation which caused you to become frustrated? I’ve been there, too, and it is not fun at all!
There’s good news, though. Our frustration can be turned into something useful. In order to explain this concept, I will give you an example from my own life.When I started my business, I couldn’t help but notice that there are certain resources that aren’t accessible to those of us who are blind or visually impaired. I have two choices: I could complain and become frustrated, or I can turn my frustration into an opportunity to learn to be more flexible and find more accessible alternatives.
However, you do not need to be blind or own a business to turn your frustration into something positive and much more productive. For example, let’s say that you are sitting in traffic, and you are going to be late for an appointment. In fact, there is so much traffic that you have to take another route altogether if you want to make it at all. Doesn’t that just frustrate the pants off of you?
Now, let’s look at your situation from another perspective. You were so frustrated by the traffic that you chose another route. Now, you just learned a whole new route that could save you time and money in the future. Isn’t that more exciting than remaining frustrated?

Instant Manifestation: Is it Possible?

When we engage the law of attraction, we often wonder why our desires don’t manifest right away. Actually, instant manifestation is possible.
How do I know this? For one thing, my guides showed it to me in a dream. The exact details of the dream are hazy since I’m not always good at remembering my dreams, but they explained that when we manifest something, it already exists on the spiritual plane.
Basically, once we manifest something, it already exists, but we haven’t received our manifested desire in its physical form yet. There are several reasons why we may not see the results of our efforts.
One of the most common reasons that we don’t see results is that we become so excited about the idea of manifesting something that we throw ourselves into meditating,visualizing our desired outcome, and engaging in other law of attraction exercises. While these tools can be powerful and create miraculous results, it is easy to forget that these tools are even more powerful when we take action in the direction of our goals and desires. Another reason that we are not seeing the results of our efforts is that certain emotions such as fear, shame, resentment, guilt, and doubt can literally push our desires away from us.
Also, it is difficult for us to surrender our desired outcome to the divine.This is because we tend to become so attached to certain outcomes for some reason. Also, even after we surrender our goals and desires to God, the timing may not be right, especially when other people are involved. This seems to be the case especially when it comes to manifesting relationships and careers.
While it is easy to focus on what isn’t working in our lives, I can tell you from experience that it does not help with the manifesting process.
Now, let’s get out there and manifest something great!

What does it mean to have faith?

Often, especially if we are dealing with life’s challenges, we are encouraged to have faith. So, what does it mean to have faith?
Does it require church attendance or worshipping a higher power? Does it require us to blindly follow someone else’s teachings?
Perhaps having faith means expecting a higher power to act on our behalf without any effort on our part.
While you may have your own perception of what it means to have faith, here is what I’ve learned through my own experience.If I receive divine guidance and wait for something to manifest without acting upon that guidance, that is not having faith because I expected the spirit world to do the work for me.
Instead, having faith requires that I trust the guidance that I am given, act on it, and then allow myself to receive. Sometimes, that is easier said then done, but in the end, it is always worth my time and effort.

Why Mediums Aren’t Vending Machines

After losing a loved one, it may be helpful to visit a medium. However, prior to sitting with a medium, there is one important thing to keep in mind.
We are not vending machines, and we cannot dial up a specific deceased person at will. Don’t let this get you down, though. While you may not get exactly what you want during a reading, I believe that the spirit world is hard at work to give you exactly what you need.
For example, while you would rather hear from your favorite aunt, perhaps your grandmother will come through with some much-needed encouragement. Why did this happen?
Perhaps your favorite aunt wasn’t a strong communicator, or maybe the spirit world thought that it was more important for you to hear from your grandmother. There’s another explanation, though. While I have compassion for my clients, my primary job as a medium is to serve the spirit world. This means that I do not get to decide who gets to communicate. I would not force a spirit to communicate if he or she didn’t want to. I believe that this would be a disservice to my clients and disrespectful to their deceased loved ones.

connecting with your loved ones without a medium

I have been asked if a medium is needed to communicate with the spirit world. Actually, the spirit world is always trying to communicate with us. After all, mediums did not invent spirit communication.

Clients have told me that they feel the presence of their guides and loved ones around them. These people were concerned that they were imagining these experiences. If you have ever wondered the same thing, you’re definitely not alone. Prior to working as a medium, there were times when I believed that I was going crazy. However, now I know that my guides and loved ones were trying to get my attention.
They may also try to get our attention in dreams, knocking sounds, light touches, and even music. There was a period of time when I woke up every morning with a song stuck in my head. After looking up the song lyrics, I found that they contained the exact guidance and encouragement that I needed.
You can even communicate with them in return. You can communicate with them out loud or in your mind. It may be helpful to have a photograph or object that belonged to them nearby. As you can see, there or several ways to communicate with your loved ones with or without a medium.
Happy Haloween, and please know that your loved ones are around you.

why I won’t predict world events

There are psychics out there who predict world events. While I do not judge them and wish them luck with this task, there are a few reasons why I will not make these types of predictions.
Prior to exploring my abilities, I would have vivid dreams of natural and man-made disasters. I woke up in a cold sweat each time, and I was upset because I knew that all I could do was pray for the victims of these awful events. I prayed to God in order to take away these dreams. I would not wish these dreams upon anyone.
Also, when I make a prediction during a reading, it is meant to leave people with a positive outlook on their lives. Also, I don’t want to inflict the fear and helplessness on my clients that I experienced during these dreams. That is why you will never hear predictions of world events from me.
That said, I can also see how these predictions could give people hope in certain cases. Thanks for reading!

question series pt 1: Getting Started as a Psychic, Medium, or Healer

From time to time, I receive questions from clients as well as people who are interested in my work as a psychic medium. These questions range from how I operate my business as someone who is blind to how I receive information during a reading.
I will continue to explore spiritual and self-help topics on my blog, but I thought that it would be helpful to address these questions. Chances are high that some of you had them, too.Today, I’m going to try to answer one of these questions.
Question. How can I become a psychic, medium, or spiritual healer?
Answer. First of all, if you have been having consistent thoughts about this for a while, that is most likely your intuition telling you to go for it! Secondly, and most importantly, why do you want to be a psychic, medium, or healer?
This is important because like attracts like. If your intention is service, you are on the right track. However, if you want to be a psychic, medium, or healer because it seems like an interesting way to spend a Saturday afternoon, this may not be the right path for you. Also, if you want to be a psychic, medium, or healer in order to acquire fame and fortune, you may want to take some more time to think through your decision.
At any point during this process, it is helpful to do your research. Talk to a reputable psychic, medium, or healer who can guide you in the right direction. There are also several books, articles, and videos on these subjects. Then, if you’ve decided that this is something that you really want, seek out a spiritualist church or metaphysical center. I believe that anyone who is sincere and dedicated can develop as a psychic, medium, and/or healer. Lastly, be prepared to begin or continue your own self-work. Remember that in order to help others, you must learn to help yourself.
If you need help with this process, don’t be afraid to ask a trusted friend, spiritual teacher, therapist, or coach.

why I don’t Predict the Lottery

As a psychic medium, I explore a wide range of issues with clients, from grief to finding the perfect job. However, when someone asks me to predict their lucky numbers or help winning the lottery, I’m hopeless.
At this point, some of you may be asking why. As a psychic, shouldn’t I be able to predict these things? Not necessarily.
There are several reasons why this information doesn’t come to me even if I am asked for it. First of all, random number generators are used to pick lottery numbers. That means that even if I provided this service, there is a small chance that I could predict the winning numbers with accuracy. Also, when I provide psychic guidance for someone, I would rather spend my time and energy by empowering that person. For example, rather than predicting your lottery numbers, it is more likely that I will provide insights into your financial situation. I might also guide you toward opportunities that would help you to attract financial success and abundance into your life.

Are spiritual people allowed to have negative emotions?

For most of my life, I have been afraid to express my true emotions. I used to believe that negative emotions need to be swept under the rug and that letting go of the past meant suppressing painful emotions.
Often, when I became sad, I would only allow myself to cry in private most of the time because I did not want people to see me as a vulnerable person.I also believed that it was sinful to express anger, and spiritual people were not supposed to get upset or angry. I’ve learned that I’m not the only one. I have had clients apologize to me for expressing sadness or grief during their readings as if the universe would be terribly offended by expressions of human emotions.
However, if we don’t express our emotions but instead bottle them up, this can affect our physical and mental health. When we hide our true feelings, we are not acting from a place of integrity because we are not being honest with ourselves. Instead, it would be beneficial for us to deal with the situations or memories that brought up these emotions in the first place. Then, we can finally move on and be free. If, however, during the process of exploring your negative emotions becomes unbarable, it may be helpful to seek guidance and support from a qualified professional.

self-acceptance:a challenge and a gift

Recently, I attended a funeral for one of my aunts. After the funeral, all of us gathered at a local restaurant. I found myself sitting next to the pastor. Everything seemed to be going well until he asked me about my job.
For a moment, I was terrified. How could I explain that I am a psychic medium to the pastor of a somewhat conservative church? Somehow, my tongue came untied. I explained that although I started out in the social work field, I found that there are other ways to help people. I feel much more comfortable with telling people what I do than when I first began. I have learned to accept myself for who I am, and I’ve learned to accept myself exactly as I am at this point in my life. Do I always get it right? Hell no! Am I still harder on myself than I need to be at times? You bet!
However, I am learning to accept myself exactly as I am in this moment.

What happens when we don’t listen to our spirit guides?

I used to worry that my spirit guides would abandon me or become angry if I did not follow their guidance. However, I have found that this is not the case. If I don’t get the message the first time, they will patiently continue to send me the same message through various means until I act on it. If I still insist on ignoring their guidance, my guides will allow me to follow my own path while still trying to encourage me to follow their guidance. If I still insist on ignoring the guidance, the worst thing that happens is that I learn some difficult life lessons. Even after that, my guides won’t be offended or frustrated as many of us might when others don’t take our advice.
Instead, they’ll ask me what I learned from that experience, and they will help me to get back on track. One of the things I’ve learned from being a psychic medium is that Spirit will always have your ack. They do not judge us as we judge ourselves, so please reach out to these heavenly helpers.

Compassion Isn’t Just for Everyone Else

If you’re anything like me, there are times that you have an unlimited amount of compassion for everyone else but you. If I don’t practice having compassion for myself, I tend to absorb the energy of others very quickly. As a result, I can become overwhelmed. Sound familiar? If so, you can definitely benefit from being gentle with yourself. For example, if someone seems to be directing their anger in your direction, it does not mean that you are a bad person. In fact, the other person’s anger probably had very little, if anything, to do with you.
It’s time to give yourself a break. Stop focusing on everything that you’re doing wrong, and praise yourself for all that you’ve done well. If you make a mistake, focus on the lessons that showed up for you, and then move on. Although it can be hard to believe at times, there is nothing that can diminish our worth. Each day, make the decision to show yourself some compassion. You deserve it!

Where did God take my pet?

After losing several pets over the years, I’ve often wondered what happens to them after they die. While I am not an expert on this subject, I will try to shed some light on the subject.
I believe that our pets leave their physical bodies and transition into the spirit world just as humans do. Unlike some people, however, their transitions are smoother because they do not have the same judgments, addictions, and other issues that may plague some people. Also, like our deceased loved ones who are human, our pets can visit us through dreams. Several years ago, our family had a cat named Scooby. Whenever I was feeling sad, Scooby would tickle me with his tail, purr in my ear, or just sit on my lap. After he passed, Scooby would come visit me in my dreams whenever I became upset. I’ve also received dream visitations from our tabby cat and our dog. They can also communicate with us through various signs. I believe that they can also conspire to bring other pets into our lives. For example, after our first kitty had passed, I didn’t think I could stand having my heart broken by another pet. However, I believe that our kitty made sure that we are never without a cat. Although I’m convinced, I have no way to prove it. He’ll never tell!

a word about discernment

Self-doubt is something that plagues many of us from time to time. However, the voice of self-doubt, perfectionism, and criticism has nothing to do with who we are on the soul level.
However, the voice of our intuition is never critical, and it will bring us closer to the divine. While the voice of self-doubt is often loud and obnoxious, the voice of our intuition is persistent, quiet, and gentle. If we listen to the voice of self-doubt, we may find that we are taken on one detour after another in our lives and we allow fear and insecurity to guide our decisions. However, if we take the time to quiet our mind chatter and allow our intuition to speak, the path becomes smoother. That is why it is important to discern between the voice of our intuition and the voice of self-doubt.
For example, I’ve struggled with perfectionism for years. I’ve decided that my inner perfectionist sounds like a valley girl and has perfect hair, skin, and teeth. If I happen to be giving a reading and a spirit with similar characteristics comes through, things might get a little more complicated. If that shappens, I may have to come up with another system.

Are you giving too much?

There are two main reasons why we choose to give. We can give out of obligation in order to avoid feeling guilty, or we can give because we have a genuine desire to give.
If you are giving out of obligation, then you may always feel as if you owe something. For example, a friend asks you for a favor, and you say “yes” because you would have a nasty case of the guilts if you did not fulfill your so-called obligation. Now, even if you wanted to, you feel that you couldn’t possibly say “no” to that person in the future.
Even if you did stand up for yourself in this situation by saying “no” to your friend, now you feel so guilty that you are convinced that you owe her, and the cycle continues. This type of giving can be a major energy drain, and it can actually lead to resentment. However, you can learn to give for no other reason than your genuine desire to give. The next time that you are faced with a decision regarding giving, ask yourself if it would make you feel good or drain your energy.
For example, when I am giving a reading, blogging, or doing anything that is related to my work as a psychic medium, I am confident that I am giving out of a genuine desire to be of service. However, when I’m asked to give my time and/or energy to something and I say “yes” when my intuition is screaming “no,” that does not feel good because I am being dishonest with myself.
