Conscious Creation: Personal and Group Consciousness

Conscious Creation

Today I'm writing about something I am pondering. Perhaps those of you who know more could help fill in anything I am missing.

Let's start with what I know.

We each co-create our personal world. Our thoughts are energy vibrations which go out to the Universe. The Universe matches our thought vibrations to help us co-create our worlds. So, for example, in my world I love peace and quiet in my own home. It gives me time to think and to write. I focus on appreciating my alone time and the Universe matches my thoughts and cooperates with me to create quiet time for my meditation and my work.

Someone who craves excitement may use their thoughts to express gratitude to the Universe for an exciting life. The Universe will match that thought vibration of gratitude and bring them additional excitement.

If you are seeking something particular in life, remember to express gratitude whenever a snippet of what you want shows up. Your gratitude will indicate to the Universe that you want more of that specific item or experience.

Also remember that once we and the Universe have set the stage for our personal lives, what we do matters. We still need to use our hands and our actions to create our lives.

So, we create our personal worlds.

But what about the larger world? The world of wars, political battles, and environmental problems? People tell me that there is a group consciousness which creates and influences the larger world. If enough people think that world is a difficult place to live, they will focus on the evidence which supports their position, and the Universe will match their focus and co-create the world as an even more-difficult place to live.

If the majority of people are unhappy with the way the world is going and they become pessimistic, their negative emotions and sorrowful reactions to the larger world will be matched by more of what they don't want. If the cultural belief is, "There's no way to save the environment," that thought vibration will be matched by the Universe. It will become true and there will be no way to save the environment. We all must be mindful of our thoughts regarding our personal worlds and the larger world which we share.

On the other hand, if we focus on the good things in our life and in the world, and express appreciation for lovely flowers, beautiful sunsets, and peace wherever we see it, our positive thought vibrations will be matched by the Universe and we will see more flowers, beautiful sunsets, and peace. And, in areas where we see there is room for improvement, we can send healing light (aiding the group consciousness) and work to make things better (taking action).

Think about the upcoming Sochi Olympics. The evening news is full of potential terrorism threats. The news is all about the drama of conflict. What about all of the magnificent athletes who are striving for perfection in their sport? As a group, we can focus on potential terrorism and have the Universe match that energy vibration, or we can focus on the beauty of the sports and the exhilaration of the athletes, and have the Universe match that vibration.

Those of us who feel we are lightworkers can bring in the light and express our appreciation for the loveliness of the world so that we counteract any group negativity and we create group-consciousness optimism. When we are meditating and focusing on our love for a beautiful green Earth full of vibrant plants and animals, the Universe can match those thoughts and continue to provide vibrant plants and animals. With our thought vibrations, we are co-creating both our personal reality and the larger world.

I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on how our group consciousness affects the world. If you have examples which I can share with blog readers, I would be happy to post them.

Think joy.

Tip for Intuitive Development: Erasing the Blackboard

Last year, a psychic named Pam shared an idea for developing intuitive abilities. Perhaps this technique could work for us:

"You could learn to develop your intuition. There is really no trick. You just close your eyes and get into a really quiet place. You have to train to erase conscious thoughts when you are in this place. What I learned to do . . . I went to a meditation class one time and this is where I picked it up. The guy said to close your eyes and visualize a blackboard. The word "thoughts" is written across the blackboard numerous times. You visualize an eraser and you erase the word "thoughts" one at a time, until the blackboard is clear. If another thought comes into your head, you see that word "thoughts" and you erase it again.

"It was a great tool for me. It worked. I was able to clear everything out. You would be surprised at how much can come in when those thoughts are gone. It really comes in. If I am mentally busy, I don't do such a great job. If you can find a way to get the thoughts out, things can come in."

Thank you, Pam!

Meet a Psychic Medium - Marianne Patyk

What is it like to be a Psychic Medium? On today's blog post we meet Marianne Patyk.

Meet a Psychic: Marianne Patyk - Medium

Marianne Patyk is a Medium which means that she communicates with people who have died and crossed to the other side. She has seen spirits since she was about eight years old and she reports that all of her relatives have visited her after passing. During their visits, it feels like they are having a normal conversation.

Marianne has had brain seizures since birth. As a young teenager, Marianne had several seizures where she astral-traveled to the other side, then came back. She has seen Heaven. Marianne's brain has experienced trauma and she believes that she is psychic because of the trauma to her brain.

Even with all of her experiences seeing spirits and astral-traveling as a child, Marianne knows that her abilities as a Medium didn't really open up until after a traumatic event in her 40s. At that point, she started hearing things she had never heard before. Her experience was similar to what happened to Whoopi Goldberg's character in the movie Ghost (1990): suddenly she started hearing a lot of information from people who had crossed over.

When Marianne's gift as a Medium surfaced in her 40s, her abilities were more potent than when she was a child. She started smelling aromas which were not physically present and hearing messages. It was overwhelming. She had to determine which abilities and tools she had as a Medium. Then, she had to accept, embrace, and learn how to work with these gifts.

When clients comes to Marianne, she asks them what they want to know or if they have someone specific whom they would like to contact. If there is someone with whom they want to speak, Marianne asks for that person's name. She takes a quiet moment to see if she can contact the person. Then, she gets a vision or hears a voice. She connects directly to the person the client is asking about. However, she doesn't fully understand how all of this works and how she is able to make the connection. It just works.

Marianne is intuitive, empathic, clairvoyant (sees images) and clairaudient (hears messages). She also smells aromas (which are not physically present), provides pet readings, and performs automatic writing.

Most of Marianne's readings are done over the phone, but she also meets people in person.

When Marianne reads for people it can drain her energy and affect her emotionally and physically. Because she is empathic, she is open to people's emotions. Sometimes, clients are very intense and that is hard on her. She absorbs all of their emotions. Marianne finds that it is best to limit her readings so that she has time to relax and recover each evening. She tries to rest and live a stress-free life so that she can continue working as a Medium.

If you would like to work with Marianne, she can be contacted at, 520-207-2663.

This Psychic Story is an excerpt from the book, My Psychic Search, discovering what psychics do, what psychics know, and how they can help us improve our lives.

Quote from a Psychic - Gary Wimmer

When I interviewed Gary Wimmer, I asked, "Are you pleased to have these abilities or are they a burden?" He replied:

"Never a burden. Very pleased. All of the time. In fact, I'm pleased with everything life gives me. You know why? The alternative sucks.

I've learned this. I'm somewhat of an optimist, but I've had my periods of worry, intensity, depression, and anxiety. I've learned to appreciate everything. If I don't appreciate it, and I can't do anything about it, I would drive myself crazy. It's my choice. I've learned so much about how people make choices in their lives. Choices and techniques are like a repertoire for life.

"I enjoy my psychic power. I enjoy it for me and I enjoy being able to help other people develop it. The more people know, the wiser their decisions. We will never know everything. I get curve balls all of the time, just like everyone else. We are supposed to. Life is supposed to throw you into situations which you wouldn't volunteer for had you known. You may have subconsciously volunteered, but not consciously. Are you going to bitch and complain, or are you going to realize that life is trying to teach you something? I should appreciate things and that is the way I choose to look at it. It's a choice. It's a learning process."

Journaling and the "Aha!" Moment

Journaling and the "Aha!" Moment

I write a lot. My lengthiest, most thought-filled writing is to myself. I journal. I like to record the things which happen so that, later, I can connect the dots. Today, I am going to connect some dots on this blog. Why? To encourage all of you who are interested in this world of psychic connection to journal so that you can link your own dots. Write down your synchronicities. You know, like when you think of someone and later that day the person calls on the phone. Or when a friend tells you something then, later, you hear an actor say the same thing on a TV show. Or when you have a dream and, later, the event in that dream occurs in real life. Write it down.

Since early December I have been fortunate enough to have had three readings with different types of psychics. The first one was Theta work with Lynda Abbaraxus. She used muscle-testing to identify my truth, accessed her psychic abilities to understand my issue, then replaced an ugly truth in my life with words of what might have been. That's a short explanation for a long process. Her work was amazing and changed how I thought about several things. I wrote about it in my journal.

A few days ago, someone said to me almost the exact words which Linda had said to me when she was replacing the ugly truth with the "what might have been." I was stunned as I listened to a woman says these words to me . . . again. Aha! I get the message.

The second reading in December was with a psychic, Margarita, who suggested (among other things) that I broaden my work and start offering classes. A few days later, I was talking with a friend who is a psychic and she said the same thing to me. I wasn't having a reading, I was just talking to someone. Aha! Teaching classes is now on my radar.

The third reading was a week ago at the Psychic Fair. Cynthia Tierra told me a lot of things. She was the person I wrote about last week when, during a reading with runes, I pulled the same stone four times (four times out of eighteen attempts). That stone had to do with assessing and working with my strengths, and allowing everything else to fall away. Four times I picked that stone. I get the message.

Cynthia also emphasized that an opportunity was coming my way; an "opening." When I came home, I wrote what she had said in my journal. Then, I looked at the words which I had written after my meditation a day or two prior to that reading. What was in my journal? "An opening is coming. An opportunity." And, I know what that opportunity is because it came to me in my meditation. I won't share it until I have had a chance to lay the groundwork. However, I know what I am supposed to do. I read it in my journal, then a psychic saw it too. Ah, synchronicity.

One Person's Explanation of her Connection

How does this work?

A few years ago, I interviewed an energy worker. I asked what she did and how information came to her. This is one person's explanation of how her connection to the Universe works:

"If I am doing energy work, such as Reiki or Karuna Reiki, reconnective healing, cranial/sacral therapy, or EFT, I incorporate whatever I feel the session needs. I am also a certified hypnotherapist. If I have someone who has fear issues, I may use hypnotherapy prior to energy work so that the person is comfortable.

During an energy session, information may just pop into my head; it's a knowing. I know to work on a place in the client's body, or I feel a presence in the room. I don't always see something. I am more likely to feel it. Later, it will be confirmed by the client.

When I feel something very strongly, I honor it and recognize it and, when the session is over, I tell the client about it. The client often knows what it is that I have felt. On one occasion, I was working on a client and felt a presence. The client later confirmed that it was her mother who had passed away from an accident in a hospital operating room."


"I don't hear anyone talking to me, the words just come into my head and trip off my tongue. I wonder where the words are coming from! Sometimes someone will ask me a question and the answer is just there and I will give them a long answer without knowing where it came from."

Quote from a Psychic

Quote from a Psychic:

We are going to go through planetary changes, but we are not alone. I think many of us will be pleasantly surprised by helpers who assist in the earth's transition. There are things which exist outside of our dimension which are here to help us. There is help from other galaxies. There are unseen angels who surround this planet with love. A lot of people are beginning to feel the helpers.

What do Psychics do?

Back to Basics: What do Psychics do?

It's January so I thought I would post an answer to one of the most-often asked questions, "What do psychics do?"

Psychics, Readers, Intuitives, Shamans, Mediums, and Energy Workers offer a fresh take on events. Just as a person would talk to a wise friend and see if the friend had insights which could help them, they can talk to a psychic or Intuitive and see if the reader can help them move forward in their life.

Most psychic readings are not like a bolt of life-changing information. They are more like a gentle sprinkling of wisdom which helps re-frame the issues being examined. Talking to a psychic reader brings a different perspective. If someone listens with an open mind, they can see issues in a new way and come up with strategies for dealing with problems. Psychics offer the opportunity for people to understand who they are, what is happening in their lives, and their choices for moving forward. Psychics can describe options and help people choose their best course of action. Psychics don't decide for them, people make their own choices.

In addition, talking with psychics can open minds to a world of potential. Many psychics provide evidence of our connection to an energetic universe. Bringing in messages which the psychics could not have known without an ability to contact Spirit Guides, our Higher Selves, or deceased relatives, can demonstrate a link to this unseen world. Psychics can help us understand our relationship with the Universe and why we are here on Earth.

Do psychics all do the same thing or do they have specialties?

In the world of psychic connection, there are many specialties. Some psychics do it all, but most psychics have an area of expertise. Some psychics predict the future, while others provide inspirational messages (but not facts), communicate with the dead, communicate with entities who are not in this physical world, communicate with animals and/or help with healing. Other psychics predict financial markets and international issues.

The people who were interviewed for My Psychic Search Project provide the following types of services:

Psychic Readings

A client can sit down with a reader and the reader can access information about that client and help the client understand the larger picture of what is happening in their life. Psychics are often asked about love, health, jobs, finances, relatives, and life path. Information from a psychic can provide a new perspective on an issue and can help a person clearly see their choices. Each choice shapes the future, and psychics can help people understand how to create the future they want by making the choices which keep them on the path to the future they seek.

Contacting Deceased Friends and Relatives

Mediums can contact deceased friends and relatives and deliver their messages to us. When Mediums are also empathic, they can actually feel the love coming through to us.

Crossing Ghosts to the Other Side

Sometimes when people die, before their spirit can cross over, they have to come to terms with the life they have lived. When they can't make peace, they can't cross over. For example, when people die in battle, or have a traumatic car accident and are not prepared for death, they may become stuck. Psychics can communicate with ghosts, witness their trauma, help them understand what has happened, remind them that they are no longer bound to the Earth, and encourage them to move into the Light.

Communicating with Pets

Animal Communicators can contact our pets and see what is going on in their lives. If there is a specific concern, Animal Communicators may be able to work with the animal to solve the problem.

Energy Work

Each person has an energy field which encompasses their physical body. Energy workers clean blockages out of this field, bring in fresh energy, and keep energy flowing through the body.

Sometimes, negative energies (or entities) attach to people. People will feel an unusual negativity. Psychics can remove the negative energies and entities. Negative entities can be sent into the Light and blockages can be cleared so that people can relax and ground themselves.


A client can sit down with a healer who can help them draw positive energy into their body so that they can facilitate their own healing. This can be physical and/or emotional healing. Sometimes the healing doesn't cure the illness, but helps the client cope with the illness, or make peace with the problem.


Many psychics teach workshops to help people boost their intuition.


Several of the psychics are life coaches. They use their intuitive gifts to help people determine their goals, then give these clients the tools to achieve their dreams.

Please remember that the best way to find a psychic is to get a personal recommendation from someone you know. You need to find the type of psychic you seek (for example, a Pet Psychic or a Medium) and you need to have a recommendation.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Working with our Strengths

Working with our Strengths

Happy New Year to everyone. Thanks so much for reading this blog. I really appreciate your readership and your e-mail responses. Remember, if you enjoy the blog, feel free to share it.

Last Friday, I was set up at a very quiet crafts fair. The weather was lovely and it was nice to have some quiet time, but when I'm set up at a crafts fair, I want to sell art and books, not just sun myself. However, the quiet fair give me a chance to pull out a box of Tarot cards and begin studying them. Is this kind of crafts fair the best use of my time? The bottom line: I'm giving up this particular monthly fair so I'll have more time to work on other things.

On the other hand, last Sunday, I was set up at our local Psychic Fair and it was a blast. We had so much fun. I sold a few things and I had interesting conversations with several people. This was a Fair which I am keeping on my list. I feel good at this Fair.

At the Psychic Fair, I was sitting next to a reader/healer and, of course, I couldn't contain myself. I had to have a reading. This woman uses "runes," rose quartz stones with symbols on them. She told me to ask a question silently, then pull three rocks out of a bag. She gave messages based on the symbols on the rocks. We did this for six silent questions. I pulled the same stones over and over. I think she told me that there were 26 rocks, but I kept pulling the same ones and getting the same messages.

What were the messages? I need to identify my strengths and use them to address my questions. I need to let go of the things which are not my strengths and are no longer of use. I think that's good advice for all of us. So, this year, I am going to pay more attention to the things which are working (like profitable crafts fairs), let go of the things which are not working (like not-profitable crafts fairs), and use my strengths to get things done. I need to keep returning to the basics of this work: interviewing people with psychic abilities, writing up their interviews so that they can be understood, and sharing this information with you.

There are so many distractions. It's hard to focus on our core work. Yes, I have to go to the grocery store and cook dinner. Yes, I have to take care of my family. However, I am hoping that letting some of this other stuff go will give me more time to use my strengths to focus on my work.

How about you? Can you see how to maximize your strengths? Can you see what you need to let go? Let's make this the best year yet.

New Year, New Opportunities

Happy New Year!

A few days ago, I read a message from The High Council of Orion which was channeled through Holly Hawkins Marwood. The message talks about working with new energies to create the world we want to live in. We can no longer look to some outside entity to save us and our planet; we need to do it ourselves.

That's a fine message, but how do we begin? How can we, personally, work with these outside energies? According to the message, we can begin with positive thoughts and by envisioning the world we want to see. We can meditate, ask for answers, know that solutions exist, and wait to hear messages. People who are new to this kind of work can try using pendulums, Tarot cards, or other tools to understand their messages. People who are already connecting with outside sources of energy and information can continue the work they are doing.

On my desk, I have Tarot cards which I have barely looked at and a pendulum which is still in its wrapper. I know I should work with these tools, but I just haven't known how to start. And, I'm a snob. I think I shouldn't need tools. The messages should just come to me. Well, guess what? I think the tools might help me to receive messages more clearly. I'll give them a whirl this year.

How about you? Are you willing to try new tools and new ways of thinking about things? It's a wonderful time to be alive. We have so many resources. Let's pull ourselves together this year, and see what kind of magic we can create.

Take care.


Here is the complete message:

24th December 2013

Channeled by Holly Hawkins Marwood
Transcribed by Paul Marwood

"Greetings Dear Ones,

We are the High Council of Orion.

Now is the time for each and every Soul on the planet who is resonant with this to step into their personal power and knowingness and really begin to work with the energies beyond the third dimensional realm. Begin to trust that the unseen energies that are in and around you are just as real as anything you perceive as "real", in your third dimensional world that you can experience with your five senses. Now is the time to really begin living into the Truth of what you've been learning and studying, not looking for salvation from without, not looking to be rescued, not looking to be saved by a new political leader, a new way of thinking, a change in the government, or even assistance from the beings in the star realms to come down and wave a magic wand. Now is the time to begin living into your new reality and that doesn't happen by being saved by external changes or external sources. This is the time of personal empowerment where you get to stretch your understanding and your knowingness to begin working with energies beyond the physical to see how beautiful and how empowered each one of you are as a Light Being unto yourself.

Begin working with positive thought and visioning. Begin with saying things only in the positive. Begin with the cessation of complaints. Begin with holding the space that all solutions are available, even if they're not seen yet, even if they're not understood yet. The solution is always there. Begin working with energies of manifestation and the law of attraction. Begin working with energetic healing. Begin working with different forms of working with energies such as pendulums, and even cards, such as tarot cards. Begin asking for guidance and assistance from your Angels and your spirit team. Begin asking for assistance from your gurus and from your God, not from a place of being victimized, but from a place of understanding it is now time to work with the unseen realms. It is time to throw off the coat of feeling small and insignificant and victimized by your humanity and break through that shell and into the beautiful expression of the Light Being that each and every one of you are where you have the potential to exist and thrive in the third dimension, but also in the realms of the energetic world around you, where you work in collaboration and work beyond what you have known so far.

It's a beautiful opportunity to not withdraw, but to expand and push yourself to live into the Truth of who you are as an Infinite Being here on this planet at this time to affect positive change. That positive change is affected and brought forward by you stepping forward and connecting to what appears to be "unseen" and begin to harness those energies to uplift your life now.

Feel that empowerment. Feel that joy, excitement and knowing that you are, in fact, a creator God of your life and also of life on the planet at this time. Every Light Being is important now. Waking up to it and contributing is essential at this time. Always holding forth the vision of pure positive potential in every aspect, in every action, every interaction, every experience.

Enjoy the journey and we support you in expanding into your fullest potential.

Be blessed.

We are the High Council of Orion."
