Honest and Authentic

Some people are genuinely positive and happy all the time. This is their natural state of being. They don’t have to put work into it; it’s simply who they are. When they talk about feeling positive emotions and thinking positive thoughts, they are speaking their truth. For many of us, though, “all positive all the…

“High-Vibe” Isn’t Always Positive

In talking about or teaching the concepts of energetic attraction (a/k/a manifestation or the “Law of Attraction”), people often state that in order to bring positive things into your life, you have to be positive all the time.

Working With Darkness

At times, someone who is on a healing journey is told that in order to heal, they have to eliminate their “shadows” and have and project “only love and light.” This is not the case. The parts of you that are sometimes labeled “shadows” are, often, the parts that have been the most damaged by…

Everything Requires Balance

What Is Intuition?

Be Safe Connecting With Guides

The following is an excerpt from my book The Guide Book, available on Amazon.com. Not all beings are benevolent. I refer to the benevolent ones as beings and the malevolent ones as entities. It’s vital to know who you’re working with when you connect and channel. This is why I strongly recommend only working with…

Use Your Discernment

From Vocabulary.com: “The noun discernment describes a wise way of judging between things, or a particularly perceptive way of seeing things.” As humans, we judge things–and each other, unfortunately–all the time. But for some reason when it comes to receiving readings, channeled messages, etc., some of us suspend judgment and just go with whatever the…
