The journey

The last 16 months has been a lot for me to work through and understand. In the process I have hurt people, but I’ve also been hurt. However, there comes a time when we have to look passed our hurts and rise above all of the things that have tried to tear us down. Walking away from an unhealthy relationship can be a culture shock for just about anyone. When you’ve been out of the game for as long as I have been, dating can be quite shocking as well. Working through getting to know one another can be a tedious process. Unfortunately, learning how to function in a healthy relationship can take time. Based on my own personal experience, it is going to take a lot longer than 16 months for me to ...

Is happiness a choice?

The simple answer to this? Yes. Every single one of us has gone through things that hurt. Some of those things impact our overall mental health. Some of those things just leave a few lacerations that eventually heal. Since my last post, I have been working diligently to overcome some of the insecurities I have. It isn’t easy. It is an excruciating process. However, I believe that a choice has to be made to be happy; to pursue it willfully. This choice isn’t always easy to make. Why? People and past hurts. All of us have demons. Some of them walk out of the closet, stand before us, and are unapologetic in their approach. Some of those demons are triggered by events during the day. Either way,...

The Hell of Insecurities

Insecurities. We all have them. The reason I’m writing this today is because it has been a hot topic among my peers lately. Sometimes writing helps me makes sense of things, so perhaps typing this out will serve that purpose. I believe that there is a tremendous difference in the way women and men handle personal insecurities. From what I’m gathering men tend to recognize insecurities, but then they promptly stick them in a box. They acknowledge the issue, but they quickly bury it and move forward. Women, on the other hand, seem to laser focus on them. We rip them apart, analyze each piece, put them all back together only to tear them apart again. We continue to focus on them until we get on...

Still Breathing


Hello all. If has been a very long time since I’ve been here, but I wanted to assure you that I’m still alive. My life has taken on so many changes, but I’m finally able to breathe. In January, I unplugged from everything spiritual. I laid my dog of 12 years to rest, and I thought I would lose my mind. I took some time to shut off the spirits so that I could grieve. It was difficult coming home without my sweet boy to greet me. My son and I struggled with his loss, and we still do. However, we have a new family member that has really helped us. Her name is Artemis Grace, and I am training her to be a therapy dog. She turned 5 months old on Saturday, and she still has a lot to learn. She is e...

Coming Out


I have added a new page to my blog.  I am scheduled to do my first public psychic event this month.  I have struggled with coming out to the general public about my abilities.  People put you in some pretty awful categories when they know that you have abilities. To help my local folks figure out what services I provide, I added the page to my blog.  To give my blog audience an idea of what I do, I’m a medium and I can do past-life readings.  I don’t do future readings.  I don’t work with tarot or palm reading.  My connection is with the past.  It’s true I do have some glimpses of the future, and when that happens I can relay that information to the client.  The thing people forget is that t...

Spirit Animals: Kangaroos (final series post)


Welcome to the concluding post for this series.  I certainly hope you have enjoyed learning about the various animals that have come to my mind.  I believe this series was inspired by something greater than me, so someone out there needed to understand the phenomenon of spirit animals.  Since I published this blog, I’ve done some psychic readings and the animals have popped through.  I have been able to reference my blog to help them understand the creatures that have come to them. Today I am going to focus on the kangaroo.  After all, we are bouncing into the new year as of tomorrow.  So, what better way to end the series than on a bouncy note? The appearance of the kangaroo reminds you tha...

Spirit Animals: The Swan


In college, I was the member of a sorority.  The mascot for the organization was a swan.  We’ve worked through just about all of the mascots from my education (Tiger:  high school; Bear:  undergrad; Buffalo:  grad school), so I knew I had to include this legendary creature in this blog series. If the swan comes to you, she is there to help you discover new ways of thinking.  She is helping you to go with the flow.  This goes back to feminine energy as well as intuition.  The swan reminds you of your personal beauty, too. Swan people are able to see the future.  They welcome healing and transformation.  They are monogamous and mate for life.  The swan folks usually find true love at a very yo...

Spirit Animals: The Cardinal


The cardinal is the state bird of Ohio.  So, I thought I would look into this beautiful little red bird to understand what he/she can bring to the spirit.  References always provided The arrival of the cardinal signals that you might need to be clearer regarding your intentions.  As the new year comes crashing in, the cardinal tells you to start setting clear, meaningful goals for yourself.  By doing this, you can accomplish just about everything you set your mind to.  It’s time to spend less time thinking about the small stuff (the things that don’t really make a difference either way).  The cardinal also reminds you to think carefully.  Your thoughts propel through the universe, causing pr...

Spirit Animals: Whales


I have never seen a whale in the wild, although I would love to.  I have watched nature shows about them.  I think they are beautiful, gentle animals.  They were nearly obliterated off the planet because of their physical properties.  Why we think we have the right to destroy just because we “need” something, I will never understand.  However, thanks to activists and wildlife groups, they have been able to come back from the brink. Let’s dive into the realities of the whale in the wild first (no pun intended).  According to Couch (2015), it is important to note that there are two suborders of whales.  There are toothed whales and baleen whales (Couch, 2015).  There are 26 types of toothed wh...

Spirit Animals: Sheep


“When you’re worried and you can’t sleep just count your blessings instead of sheep.  And you’ll fall asleep counting your blessings.”  In case you don’t know where that came from it is a song featured in the movie White Christmas.  Many also associate sheep with people.  For example, I’ve heard people say that “she is a wolf in sheep’s clothing,” meaning that sheep have the appearance of being unthreatening and docile.  Those in the Christian faith equate sheep (a lamb) with Jesus.  He was the sacrificial lamb to save everyone on earth from Hell.  So, it seems that the sheep and its meaning may be very entrenched in our society and our cultures.  If you have a sheep, or even a lamb, pop int...

Spirit Animals: Dolphins


I have had the privilege of swimming with dolphins.  I saw them in action when I visited South Carolina.  We were on a ferry from Fort Sumter.  A pod of dolphins swam beside the ferry the entire way back to the terminal.  It was quite beautiful. Although I live in the Midwest, that doesn’t mean that I can’t have a dolphin as a spirit animal.  I met someone recently that has a dolphin spirit animal.  She lives about 20 minutes from me.  When I did a reading for her, I explained that just because you don’t live near the animal doesn’t mean they are unable to connect with you.  You can summon the animal and they can summon you. When the dolphin swims into your spirit world it represents balance...

Spirit Animals: Reindeer


Ho, ho, ho!  Merry Christmas!  For today I thought it appropriate to discuss the reindeer spirit animal.  Since Santa is now in bed asleep from all of the traveling, and his reindeer are now safely tucked away for another year, what better way to honor the childhood dream of Christmas? The reindeer comes to you to remind you to stay focused, fight the good fight, and don’t forget to keep your goals in sight.  They encourage you to keep on keeping on because the end of your emotional and/or spiritual journey is coming to a close.  It doesn’t mean you’re going to die.  It means that you have learned the things you needed to learn in order to reach elevation.  The reindeer also reminds you to t...
