Setting up 2017

Setting up our New Year

2017 is coming and it looks daunting. How will we handle the changes? Are there positive ways to think about the upcoming challenges?

Today, I am sharing three more ideas from the psychics. You can combine these ideas with Tuesday's Quote about holding your truth and last week's set of Psychic Predictions for 2017, to develop a good attitude towards the future.

1) It is a time for change. If we don't change and grow, we stagnate. This is true for body, mind, spirit, and politics. Change is imperative. It is not something to fear. If we look for the best in the changes, we will find them.

The people we think are harming us, are actually offering opportunities for growth. We can become stronger and better-empowered. We can make good decisions which keep us vibrating at a high level. If we want to, we can stand up for ourselves and our opinions. We are all in this together.

2) Keep your personal space clear of negative energy. Don't give in to fear. Don't allow negativity to affect your personal peace and happiness.

Create a healthy and happy scenario. Develop a thought process which keeps your life free from negativity. When you see negativity coming your way, notice the approach, but don't allow the energy to attach to you. Visualize protection any way you can. For example, visualize the negative energy as water coming towards you. Diversion canals carry the energy around you. No matter what someone does, don't allow their thoughts to attach to you. By envisioning protection, you won't get wet.

This simple, protective thought is extremely strong and structured. Without your permission, negative energy cannot attach to you. The energy of your thoughts is one of the most amazing forces in existence. You can change the universe with your thoughts.

3) The next few years will be tumultuous and we need to prepare. The people who are anchoring third-dimensional reality have begun their last gasp of control. We are moving into the fifth and sixth dimensions. Third dimensional energy will remain in place for a few years, but the changeover has begun.

Those who control the world's economic life and culture, are going to try to exert control in a very overt way. There may be periods of deprivation as they attempt to control food, water, and energy. Stash away a bit of food and water for these periods.

They are going to fail 100%, but, until then, they will do disruptive things.

I remember writing about protecting our personal, "life bubbles" last year. Keep things clean and positive. Then, try to extend your bubble to encompass the people you know, your community, your country, and then the world. Since writing about this, I have seen the concept show up in other people's articles. We are all connected. We are facing challenges, but we can remain positive as we move forward together.

Here's to a healthy, happy, prosperous New Year!

Hold your Truth

 Quote from a Psychic - Hold your Truth

With all of the changes that are coming, the important thing to remember is not to get emotionally involved or you will be sucked into it. Know that everything is in divine order and that everything always works out regardless of the BS of the broadcasts over the airwaves. Your life is in harmony and it needs to be your truth. Your experience is your truth. Forget everybody else. That is how they are going to try to persuade you to get you sucked into the last throes of the past.

The energies of the 3rd dimension cannot survive in the 5th and 6th dimensional energies that we are going into. Those thoughts won't survive, so the energies have to dissipate. If we just sit back and hold our truth, everything will be perfect.

Eight Psychic Predictions for 2017

Eight Psychic Predictions for 2017

I asked several psychics at the Mystic Messengers Psychic Fair, "Do you have a prediction for 2017?" These are their answers:

Spiderwoman Ilise:

"I see turmoil in the beginning of the year and then, it's like a reverse bell curve. It evens out. Things settle down and become really calm. Calmer than they have been in a long time. Maybe around May.

"There will still be turmoil during and after the inauguration. Then, things start to settle into a norm. I feel that it's going to be a little different norm than it is now. How? I'm not sure. I feel this calmness. This centered, peaceful, calmness. Around May. That's what I'm getting."

Emmy Morgan:

"Really good things. I feel positive. I'm in the best place in my life. It feels wonderful. The more I expect the best, the more the best happens. It's amazing. It's wonderful. That's what I think."

Morgana Dragonfly:

"We have all been really worried about the election. About two weeks before election day, I knew who the winner was going to be.

"There is a lot of fear and anger going around right now. As surely as I knew who the winner was going to be, I also know that he will not come through on any more of his election promises than any previous President ever did.

"With time, the fears pass and things calm down. Yes, there are changes, but a lot of the changes are good shake ups that the nation needs. If people will release their fear and relax, it's going to be alright. That's the way I feel about it.

"Everybody is reacting in the absolute worst way they could react right now. They should release the fear and breathe, and take a wait and see attitude. Don't jump on the bandwagon and be behind him. Just take a wait and see attitude."

Kathryn Summers:

"Everyone is afraid of change. We are coming to major changes. These changes are not negative. They are very positive. With the new President, everyone is afraid of change, but change is what we need. It is going to be a very positive year.

"I work with an eight year old boy. I call him ‘The Golden Child.' The first thing he told me about the change is that people will start becoming more spiritual. People will start loving each other. There is no more time for war. You are going to hear that from people. That is very good.

"He says that right now there is positive and negative. He says the positive is winning. It's about time. People are becoming more spiritual."

John Hunter:

"It's a year of big changes. I think people will be nicer to each other once we realize we are all we've got. It's that sense of community being re-formed. Re-done. Re-established. It will be peaceful for us because we will be pulling together. That is naturally what we are here to do. All those things are good, it's just that to get to that point, we have to go through a lot of change. We are right on course with that. It's happening right with the big plan.

"The election represents a changing of the system which had to happen. Now we get to do what we do best: adapt. But, it's not done changing yet. It's just the very beginning.

"We still have the financial change coming up. Our system will change. The government will be cleaned out, as far as corruption or things that have taken the progress of the US off course. The benefit has been taken away from the people and I think that we will get it again, but we have to get rid of this old system. Everything seems to be right on schedule.

"People will treat each other better after they realize they can't treat each other any worse. That is how it goes. That is how things have always gone.

"People need to eliminate fear. Until they do, it's going to be rough. It‘s a rough ride. Change and transition are rough when dealing with fear. The election was full of unnecessary fear. People are frozen in their tracks. That's not productive. Now we have exposed it. To heal something, you have to expose it. That is how we should look at it. We've got to expose a lot of things. Even though people are going to have a hard time dealing with it, at least it's exposed. The next step is healing. That's positive.

"I predict that next year is a major part of exposure, then we have 2018 to adapt. In 2019, we start healing. By 2020, it is just a good, normal environment. Then, we start advancing from that point for the next seven years, until 2027."

Carolyn Munson:

"When you see a shadow, you know there is light. That's how I feel about the election. Light makes the shadow. Don't be afraid of the shadow because there is always a light."

Patricia Kirkman:

"Next year is all about fresh starts and new beginnings. Everyone has an opportunity to open doors, to go for what they are looking for, by being in charge of who they are. We are going to have doors open that we hadn't thought about in a long time.

"The most important thing is the universal one year. It's all about new beginnings, fresh starts, taking that deep breath, and flying with the sky."

Diane Donato:

"America is going to discover that there are two sides to a coin, but there is just one coin. We are all one, regardless of which side of the coin we identify with.

"America is going to wake up. The whole world is going to wake up. It's going to be painful and it's going to be joyful. You have to focus on the joyful moments to help get through the painful ones.

"Honestly, I think that liberals and conservatives really want the same thing. We just have different ways of going about getting it. Eventually, we will meet on middle ground. It's going to work. It just takes time. We need to heal wounds. As Gandhi said, we need to be the change that we want to see in the world. That's the truth."

Patricia's 2017 Prediction
Removed. See blog post above.
10:03 am mst

Thursday, December 15, 2016

What did you want to be when you grew up?

What did you want to be when you grew up?

When you were young, did you know what you were going to do with your life? Did things turn out the way you expected they would? Think back. Were you interested in a certain career, or parenthood, or a lifestyle? What did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was young, I had no idea what I would do as an adult. I remember, in high school, reading books about ESP and parapsychology. At the time, ESP studies were coming out of Russia. As I read those studies, I had no clue that I would devote so much of my life to thinking about intuition and psychic ability.

As a teenager, I loved doing crafts. My first real job was at a hobby and arts shop where I helped customers figure out how to create their artwork. I knew paints, decoupage techniques, and how to get plaster to set just right. As an adult, I devoted time to crafts and attempted to become a professional artist and/or crafts designer, but that didn't grow the way I had hoped it would.

In high school, I loved photography. As an adult, I was snapping photos before smart phones made it so easy. I still do.

I was never a fiction writer. I had a diary and I wrote notes in class. I chronicled life in words and photos. I was a photojournalist for my high school paper. Later, I trained in journalism and science.

After college, I had a career as an Environmental Planner. This was not something which had grown from a childhood interest. It evolved through education, an interest in biology, and the luck of finding an entry level position which I could develop into a career.

As an employee, I wrote and edited reports. I also transcribed a lot of meeting minutes. This is the skill I use most these days: listening to others, writing their words, then assembling them into coherent passages.

I was fortunate to be able to leave mid-career and spend time raising my children and exploring my interests.

I see how the skills I developed prepared me for the work I do today, but it was one step at a time. One skill developed, then another. I had no idea I would spend eight years interviewing psychics about their lives and abilities, then writing about all I had heard.

I didn't have a plan for my life. I just stumbled along and things either fell into place, or they didn't.

How does this relate to psychic ability? When I asked this question of a small group of psychics, most of them said that either (1) they had known from childhood what they would do as adults, or (2) they had experienced a vision or a revelation which had shown them their choices.

How about you? As a child, did you know what you would do with your life? Did your life turn out the way you imagined it would? I would love to hear from you because I am wondering about how childhood ideas relate to psychic ability. I need some data points, or stories, or anecdotes, to ponder.

I'm going to post this question on My Psychic Search's Facebook page. You can either e-mail your answer to me or post it on Facebook. I would really appreciate your help with this question: Did you know from childhood how your life would work out?

Thanks for helping me figure out how psychic ability works!

Margarita's Tools
 Quote from a Psychic - Margarita's Tools

I asked Margarita about the tools she uses to do psychic readings. She told me:

"I use cards, palms, astrology, and photos. I do dream interpretation.

"You just keep adding to your repertoire. Sometimes you come up with something on your own. If you rigidly stick with one thing, as opposed to allowing Spirit to flow, I think you end up with a block."

I asked, "Do you have a favorite technique?"

She replied, "Each one is a favorite.

"You use what is necessary for the client. Some clients refuse to allow me to use certain tools, like cards. Others say, ‘I already had astrology,' or ‘I want my palm read because I want to see what kind of man I'll marry.' People's preconceptions can determine which tool I use.

"Sometimes, when I am done, people will say, ‘That's not what I expected.' I tell them what is there, but they would rather have an affirmation of their belief. Sorry. If that's what they want, they can call a psychic hotline. I don't do that. I only give the information which is there."

Thanks, Margarita, for helping us understand how you choose your tools. Most months, you can find Margarita at the Mystic Messengers Psychic Fair.

A Time of Transition

A Time of Transition

It's a time of transition in our country and in the world. The numerologists tell me that we are completing a nine-year cycle. In January, it's all about new beginnings. Right now, it's a good idea to set up whatever we want to have in our lives for the next nine years.

Our local Mystic Messenger's Psychic Fair is a microcosm of the transition in the world. Patricia Kirkman has run the Fair for 20 years; now, the reins are being turned over to someone new. Several of my buddies have decided not to be readers at the Fair any longer. It doesn't have anything to do with the new management, they are just setting up their next nine years of work. I am going to miss these psychics! However, I am certain I will begin chatting with new-to-me psychics and will end up with fascinating stories to share with you. This is an opportunity to hear new voices.

In my own life, I also seeing endings. A few weeks ago, I posted about how events are dropping out of my life. I haven't seen the new beginnings yet, but I trust they are on their way. New Year's Eve is often a time of reflection and goal setting for the upcoming year. Maybe, because this is a nine year, we get to do it a little early.

When I envision my future, I am reminded of a conversation I had with John Hunter earlier this year. I was telling him about an issue in my life and he told me to be exact in imagining a better scenario. He explained that the key to a better life is figuring out how to define "better." When you say, "I just want it to be better," there is no way for the energy to do anything. It doesn't know what that means. If you say, "My better is this," "The scenario that makes me feel good is this," you create the space for that scenario to take place.

He suggested that we be specific about what we want to happen. Don't just ask for health and happiness. Figure out the details, then ask for them. This process allows energy to flow and fill in the request. The more specific we are, the more efficiently things move.

Beth Hays once told me, "It's easier to say what we don't want, than it is to say what we do want."

Once you figure out what you want in your life, wake up every morning and reinforce your desires. If you find energy coming your way to undermine your perfect scenario, try to redirect that energy around yourself. Maintain peace in your energetic field.

Visualize what you want. The energy of our thoughts is an amazing force. Our thoughts can change the universe. We just have to remember that we are capable of that kind of accomplishment.

Let's release anything we don't want in our lives as we complete our nine-year cycle, and envision all we do want in the new nine-year cycle.

Let me know what you think.

Working with Angels

 Quote from Emmy Morgan - Working with Angels

I asked Emmy about the tool she uses to give readings.

Emmy replied, "I use angels. I embrace them. For me, the angels are my protection and they are also a doorway into a much bigger, expansive pool of knowledge than I can access on my own.

"There is something else about the angels: they never lie. They come from this place of unconditional love, at least in my experience. I don't do anything without calling them in, no matter what.

"While I continue to call them in, and I always do, there is the truth that comes out of me that I normally don't even know that I have. The angels are like a column of awareness which goes around me and through me, but I'm not aware of it. I deliberately call them in before I do anything.

I asked, "Do you see the angels?"

Emmy said, "No. I just feel their energy.

"I don't even work with archangels, I just need my angel. I called her ‘Cee.' Five or ten years later, I realized it was ‘See.' I had no idea. See. I still think Cee.

"She came to me when I lived on Pacific Beach in San Diego. Every day, I would do my Chi Gong by the edge of the water. Every day, I would say, ‘I know you are there, what is your name?' I wouldn't hear a thing.

"Finally, I said, ‘Oh for goodness sakes, what is it?' I heard a bunch of things. When I heard ‘Cee', I said, ‘That's it.' I tried all kinds of flowery names, but they didn't fit me. ‘Cee,' which is really ‘See,' works."

Thank you Emmy for letting us know how you do your work.

Where do Souls come from?

Announcement: I will be set up at this Sunday's Mystic Messengers Psychic Fair at the DoubleTree Inn across from Reid Park in Tucson, AZ. The Fair runs from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Chakra-balancing pendants make beautiful, thoughtful gifts, so they will be on sale. You can learn more about the pendants on the Jewelry page of this website.

Where do Souls come from?

Have you ever wondered where you came from? Where you were before birth? And before that? Where do individual souls come from?

Recently, two people shared their understanding of the origin of souls. When I hear the same kind of thing twice, I think I need to share it with you. Today these two people, who don't know each other, discuss our origin. Both accounts have been edited for clarity.

A Channeled Message

The creation of the soul. Earlier tonight, you mentioned meteor showers. Imagine this as your beginning. Your creation. Your stepping into individuality. Each of you, at one time, was part of Divine Source. And each of you, indeed, still is Divine Source. But the creation of your individuality occurred like this, and we say "like this" because, like so many mysteries of the universe, once you put words on them, you limit them. However, the visualization may help you understand the process.

You know that the sun gives off light. Now imagine not just the sun from your solar system, but the Central Sun which is a representation of Source. Clearly, Source cannot be confined in any one place, even in something as substantial as the Central Sun, but for the moment, let the Central Sun represent the Divine from which you were birthed.

As rays of light emanate from the sun, visualize a beam of light thrown out from that sun. That beam of light is the individual God-light within you. It came from the Central Sun, was one (and still is one) with the Central Sun, but when that beam of light came forth from the Sun, at that moment, it was conscious of its separation.

Each of you will live lifetimes then, eventually, go through the illusion of the separation and once again become part of the Central Sun, which we are using as a metaphor for Source.

Your conscious return to the Oneness of Source is inevitable. You don't need to rush it. You don't need to feel like enlightenment has to be obtained in this lifetime or within some finite measurement of time. Know that it has already happened.

We leave this with you in hopes that it will clarify your understanding.

An Intuitive Recollection - John Hunter

I was taken to the moment of my conscious birth. I was set forth, set out, freed from The Creative Energy of all Things. I was expressed like a photon from the sun. Just an energy, the smallest increment of energy that we can measure, like a photon. I was expressed from the sun. That's how we are created. My journey from the sun was to this earth.

I understood how I traveled, and how I came into contact with other energies and matter, up until this present time on earth. I was a developed consciousness coming into physical matter. I understood every step that it took to be in physical matter. To exist in this present moment, I had to accept and acknowledge all the death, all the abuse, all the imperfections, so that I could focus on the perfections of life.

We have to handle the fact that there is bad and good, cause and effect. For me to love, I have to understand hate.

It's hard when you are unlimited to come into these limited scenarios and still operate with love, and still have some conscious knowledge of self. You have to decide not to carry it all with you. You don't need to know everything about your whole existence to exist right now. You choose not to know everything. That's okay. You forgive yourself for that. You are responsible for saying, "I forgive myself for not remembering everything. I only need this right now."

When you leave your body, all that other stuff will be present. It is the fear of that, that keeps people trapped. The fear of their full conscious self, of knowing their whole journey. People are afraid of that. That is the part of death that is so mysterious. What happens? "When I leave this body, do I become nothing or do I become everything?" You become everything. You have the possibility of becoming everything.

What do you think? Does any of this ring true for you? Do you remember your origin too? Send an e-mail to to let me know what you think.
