Intuition: Right or Wrong?

You’re trying to make a decision. You know what the options are, but not which is best for you. In the deeper part of your mind, and perhaps in your body, you feel that one option is more beneficial than the others. You know, without having to think about it, that this is the choice…

What Is Intuition?

I talk/write quite a bit about listening to your intuition. It occurred to me that I don’t think I’ve ever really explained what I believe intuition is. One definition of intuition is “a thing that one knows or considers likely from instinctive feeling rather than conscious reasoning.” It’s a deeper knowing than conscious thought. Sometimes…

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…

Ten Out of Ten Guides Agree…

Not that I’ve polled guides. That would be a lot of work, especially since I generally only talk to my own. Lately, I’ve read a few books that either are channeled material or include some channeling along with what was written by the human author. One thing that has struck me is how many times…

What is Trauma?

As a trauma survivor, I’ve encountered many people who think trauma is just a matter of “holding onto the past” or “not getting over something.” They believe trauma is just an emotional reaction that someone can choose or not, and that people who live with post-traumatic stress or other issues related to their trauma are…

Speaking Through Fear

I’ve been working and learning to be better about speaking my truth. Speaking up for what I believe, and expressing who I am and what I stand for. What I didn’t take into account is how scary that actually can be. I knew *I* was scared to do it, but chalked up the fear to…

In Hiding

NOTE: This is a revised version of a post that originally appeared on this blog in 2017. I am choosing to share it again because it is relevant to a situation I’m living through now, and because I’ve made strides in this area that I wanted to share. “Living your truth” is a big thing…

Blocking People

On social media, I generally don’t block people unless they’ve either proven themselves to be dangerous in some way (in other words, directly threatening me) or I’ve found them to be detrimental to my mental health (such as an abusive ex). However, lately I’ve found myself blocking more people for other reasons. I’m not happy…
