Don’t Fear Your Fears 

Fear is a feeling. And like all feelings or emotions, it is physical. That is, fear mainly has to do with the body.

Despite its physicality, fear can keep you, the spirit, from moving forward.

I help many of my clairvoyant reading clients work through their fears. It makes sense that fear often comes up in a reading. Usually, someone contacts me because they want to make a change, embark on a new direction, or get guidance about an opportunity or decision. With the contemplation of risk, some fear may…

So, who’s setting the tone for your holiday season? 

So, who’s setting the tone for your holiday season? And how’s that working out for you? 

It’s a cliché that we in the developed world are bombarded with messages saying that our winter celebrations should involve consumption and commodities. The other part of the cliché is that you should fight these messages by somehow returning to the true, original, spiritual meaning of your preferred traditional winter holidays. Two competing shoulds.

I have a simple, technical suggestion that’s a little bit…

Creativity, Communication, and Confidence: Workshop 3/21/15 for Singers/Performers 

Being a performer is so much about letting others see and hear who you really are. Which can be terrifying  — and liberating.

I realized this all over again last night while on the road to an audition, with exhausted vocal cords from overpracticing and thoughts of pulling over, calling the bandleader, and feigning a flat tire. 

Three things kept me going: the fact that I didn't want to waste having put on make-up, the fact that I didn't want to be seen as a flake by this band I wanted to join, and…

More on How to Ground Your Body 

Last September, I introduced the intuitive tool of grounding your body (and your personal energy space).

Here's more about this relaxing, refreshing, stabilizing tool – and about how to replenish yourself after you release energy you don't want or need.

You, the spirit, ground your body.

You might notice, after you first do it, that grounding your body feels familiar. Some people get grounded and start dumping energy just by watching a sports game on TV. I notice that one way I ground is by watering my…

Is That Ghost More Powerful Than Me? 

Are spirits such as ghosts, guides, and angels more powerful than you are?

The question takes on an exciting, scary flavor around Halloween. Boo!

But it also comes up year-round, overtly or not, as I work with folks as a clairvoyant.

You may believe that any bodiless spirit that might cross your path – whether a goblin or a fairy, the ghost of a former resident of your home or your grandmother from the beyond – is more powerful than you are.

Maybe more terrifying: the feeling  that whatever haunts you…

Tool #3: Ground Your Body (and Replenish It) 

You go through life attracting information, data, images, emotions. Some of it feels like bounty. Some of it feels like stress. A lot of it is way too much for your body to handle. You’re overloaded. You may feel at times that it’s tough to cope. 

Here’s a great tool for letting go of the overload: imagine grounding your body to the earth.

Grounding clears out the clutter so you can go on, refreshed, and create what you want to do or have next. Grounding allows you to release the static – background…
