Meet Cynthia Rae

Meet an Intuitive - Cynthia Rae

In July 2008, I interviewed Cynthia Rae. Cynthia is intuitive. She had a near-death experience as she was being born and has always "known" things. Later, she had another near-death experience which expanded her gift. Then, in the early 1990s, Cynthia trained as a massage therapist and began receiving intuitive messages as she worked on clients. She found that she was able to help people heal themselves. Her goal is to empower people so that they are courageous in their living.

One of the ideas she shared is that we are all having experiences for ourselves and for the Source of Life. We are fulfilling the contract we made before our birth.

Cynthia said:

"Difficulties don't mean that life isn't fulfilling. My philosophy about being here on Earth is that we come to learn certain lessons. The Source of Life has never lived every single moment on this planet; has not lived every single moment in a different refraction, a different life, a different emotion. If you look at each of us, there are millions of different opportunities. That's why everyone is so different.

"If you look at Source as in the middle, and know that everyone is connected to Source, you understand that every person is allowing Source to live vicariously through them. Source can feel the emotions, can see the things we see, and can understand because of our brains.

"We are here to learn for ourselves and for Source. We can call the Source "G-d", or any other name: the Creator, the One who has the pulse on everything that is going on in the whole of existence. G-d might be the name of what is only the CEO of this space and He might have a higher somebody-else to talk to. Who knows? I don't know. I'm just doing my part.

"We are all fulfilling the contract we made with our souls before we came down here. Whether or not I am happy and joyous every single moment of the day doesn't matter. It is the human essence of what I have chosen."

Later, Cynthia remarked:

"Why are we here on this earth? To experience and grow in ways that no other soul has the opportunity to do. I think that we are very honored to be here. No other souls that we know of, not even the angels, Guides, or masters, have the opportunity to taste. They can't spit, they can't make love, they don't touch. They don't have the senses we have.

"I think that we are the honored ones. There aren't very many people on this Earth who have joy every day of their lives, who get up and skip. If they are doing that, they are not experiencing; they are not learning. All of the knowledge already exists on the other side. Here, we are learning, we are taking knowledge in. Every leaf we look at is different from another leaf. Each of us is different. We are here to experience things. We each have the opportunity to affect other people's lives and whether we do it in a positive way, or a negative way, is up to them and up to us."

You can read my full interview with Cynthia Rae on the "Featured Interview" page of this website for FREE for the next two weeks. After that, the interview will only be available as a 99 cent Kindle e-book. Cynthia's interview is the third one in the "Psychics Speak" series. You can view the complete list of interviews on the "Psychics Speak" website page.

Let me know what you think.

Lynette's Surprise
Quote from a Psychic - The Most-Surprising Thing

I asked Lynette Lisell, "What is the most surprising thing about being psychic?"

Lynette answered:

"Many years ago, I began having prophetic dreams. When my dreams accurately predicted serious health issues for two people, I was amazed. It was the start of my journey.

"I began reading everything I could get my hands on regarding the development of psychic skills. Soon afterward, I befriended a wonderful man who was a hands-on psychic healer. This is something which really resonated with me. Soon afterward, I went to school for massage therapy and began my studies in Reiki, chi-gong and hands-on healing with Echo Bodine in Minneapolis.

"Those dreams that, at the time were surprising, actually quite shocking, set the course for this wonderful journey that continues to unfold today."

At the Psychic Fair, Lynette reads Tarot Cards and Runes. In private sessions, she does energy healing and aromatherapy consultations. You can contact her at 520-425-9640, or by e-mail at

Ghost Tweets

Ghost Tweets

Have you wondered about the large, white, transparent circles you see in photographs? These are called "Orbs," and can be likened to "Ghost Tweets" because they show up, but don't have a lot to say. Orbs are one way for a ghost, spirit, angel, or Spirit Guide to show themself in this physical realm.

Karreen Martin, likes to take photos in the evening and call in orbs. Earlier this week, a few of us got together to see if we could photograph orbs.

Karreen explained that orbs might be people who have passed away, angels, or Spirit Guides. In many cases, people who have crossed to the other side are here visiting. They come to play.

In other cases, people who have passed away and were shocked by their passing, may not yet have crossed to the Light. Karreen can direct these souls to look for, and go to, the Light. She assists them in their crossing to the other side.

Karreen said, "When I have 15 or 20 orbs, the majority are individuals who want to be crossed over. When I call them in I sing. If you sing or play music, more orbs come in. They hear that vibration and call people they know who haven't crossed over."

"They are discarnates. They have 90 hours to cross over. If they don't cross over in 90 hours because they are mourning for you or someone else who is left, they could be there for thousands of years."*

"You can call in anyone. They hear you. Ask them to come in orb form. Some come in so fast that you see them moving in a row."

Karreen mentioned that orbs love animals. She suggested that you watch your animal as they watch orbs. Point your camera at whatever your dog is looking at, then snap a photo.

A few orb photos are shown above. More photos can be found on the "Orbs" page of this website. It's easier to post them there, than to put them in this blog (software issues).

One more thing: Karreen mentioned that we can feel orbs. They can make our hair feel electrified. We can feel them in our aura. When we feel them, then take a photo, we can confirm that they are with us.

* This information is from Karreen. The "90 hour" idea is new to me.

Most Surprising thing about Psychic Ability?

Quotes from Psychics - Most Surprising thing about Psychic Ability?

I asked, "What is the most surprising thing about psychic ability?"

Morgana Dragonfly replied:

"The surprising part is the accuracy.

"I took up Tarot because I was fascinated by the cards. When I started reading for friends and family, I was just playing a game, like pretending. But when there were too many hits to be accidental, that surprised me. Cool. I was right.

"I don't always agree with what I get in my psychic impressions so I don't always follow my own intuition. There are many times when I am sorry I didn't follow these impressions."

Morgana Dragonfly, Metaphysical Practitioner


Kat Riegel answered:

"The most surprising thing is the insights which come to me from animals. There will be something I am working on which I may, or may not, know that I am actively working on. I will give information to a client and they will look at me funny and I will realize that the message was mine, not theirs. Information comes in, in interesting ways.

"One of the most surprised things which happened didn't have to do with animals. A client told me she had misplaced one of her costume tops for belly dancing. She needed it for an upcoming show. I told her it was in a box in her closet. She told me that she never put costumes in that closet. No way. She went home and there it was, in a box in the closet. She was surprised.

"I am also surprised that I can predict the sex of babies."

Hay House World Psychic Summit

Hay House World Psychic Summit

A few weeks ago, one of my delightful blog readers let me know that Hay House would be hosting an online World Psychic Summit. I had no idea what a "Psychic Summit" might be. Turns out, Hay House presented several days of audio interviews with psychics. Today, I want to share some of the new-to-me ideas which I heard during that Summit.

1) Maris Moris talked about a "snow globe meditation," in which we imagine ourselves inside a snow globe. When we shake the snow globe, glittery pieces of paper surround us. Maris likened this to our aura and suggested that when we meditate, we imagine that we are cleaning and polishing everything within the snow globe which surrounds us, enhancing our bright sparkle.

2) Gordon Smith has a concept called, "Calling Cards," in which we try to determine how the Universe communicates with us - the Universe's calling card. He suggested that we ask the spirit world, "Are you there?" then see what happens. Do you feel a breeze on your face? Do you feel warmth somewhere? Then, ask again to see if Spirit can make it happen again. If the same thing happens twice, confirmation is provided. The "calling card" from a Guide might be the feeling of a warm blanket, a cool breeze, or a sensation around the face.

3) Gordon Smith also commented that every Medium is a healer. Message come in words, but when compassion is attached, messages are healing.

When working as a Medium and communicating with a spirit, he suggested that you feel if the person is old or young, or hurt. Try to get the entirety of their personality around you. Your body may start to sway like the person did. You reanimate their life. It is possible to blend with the spirit. You allow the person to come through you because you are an open channel.

When you see the hat or the pipe, they are showing you who they are. It's the image of the person so they can be identified. They are actually evolving and have already dropped their "humanness" behind.

4) John Holland noted that a psychic's connection to Spirit will change over time. It may go quiet for a while. He suggested that psychics not limit themselves with titles such as clairvoyant, clairaudient, or Medium. Titles are limiting. Psychics should be open to whatever happens. It's about opening and expanding, not about limiting. Keep growing. Abilities change.

5) John Holland interviewed Gordon Smith and asked, "Before someone passes, is there something to say to ease their transition?"

Gordon Smith answered that people feel cut off from the dying. They feel there is nothing they can do. He suggested that people speak to the dying about the afterlife and let them ask questions. Talking to them about loved ones on the other side and about the other side being a renewed state of being, takes away the fear of death. Tell them this isn't the end. Dying with that thought is better than dying without that thought.

When you help the dying, it raises their vibration. Always send your loved one the highest possible state of mind so you don't feel cut off and useless. This work also helps you through the grieving process. You know you've done what you could do.

6) John Edward explained that, as a Medium, you can't call in someone who you don't know. You can't just call in a scientist as an experiment. There has to be a connection to the deceased through the love of the person who was left behind.

7) John Edward also talked a bit about suicide and limbo, saying that people don't get stuck. When someone crosses themselves over, there is a varying level of responsibility they have to take. Some people commit "stupidity" as a result of their actions. They didn't mean to die, they just did something stupid.

What happens afterward depends on the person and their mental and emotional states. There is no penalty. They don't get stuck until their natural time to pass. It's not that they would have lived to be 60 so they have to stay in limbo until they are 60. There is no time on the other side.

8) John Edward commented that atheists are completely surprised when they cross over and find out something is there. When they come through during a reading, they have a lot to say.

9) A few more thoughts from John Edward:

* You don't need to be famous. You need to be accomplished at what you do.

* Leave people better than you found them. Always say what you want them to know.

* Cut out the people who are cancerous to you. Cut out negative situations. Recognize you are done there, knowing you've done everything you can do.

I enjoyed listening to these sessions with psychics and I hope you found these thoughts as interesting as I did.

Our Journey is an Evolution

Announcement: This Sunday, the Mystic Messengers Psychic Fair will be held at the DoubleTree Inn in Tucson, AZ, across from Reid Park. The Fair runs from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. I will be there and would love to chat with you.

Our Journey is an Evolution

Each belief system explains human beings and mortality. Last week, I heard two different explanations. The first one noted that our time is limited. We are like falling fruit and withering leaves. The second explanation was more expansive. This message was channeled by a psychic:

"Do not look at your physical life existence as your beingness. It would be like a seed seeing itself as its totality. It is not a seed. You are not a seed. It is not a sprout. You are not a sprout. When it becomes a tree, it is not a tree, and it's not the leaf and it's not the fruit. The fruit is consumed by a being of one sort or another, then becomes part of something larger. It has a higher purpose.

"So it is with your beingness. It is an evolution. There is always a higher level, a higher awareness, a higher knowing, a greater purpose. A new life greater than you knew to ask.

"Stop looking at the smallness of the seed, the frailness of the sprout, the long time the tree grows, the leaves that fall, the fruit that is bare -- eventually harvested and consumed. New life continues and so do you.

"In the greater scope, in the greater analogy, this has been going on and will continue to go on and on and on. This is why all are one. Whether they recognize it, whether you recognize it, whether you accept it. It is what it is."

This message explained our physical changes on earth, reminded us to see the whole picture, and hinted that there is more to come. The "more" is our non-physical journey. At death, our body loses it energy, but our essence crosses to the non-physical realm where we live on, examine our recently-led life, heal, and learn. Eventually, if we so choose, we design a new life and return to earth.

We are more than withering leaves. We are conscious beings co-creating our lives with a Universal Source of Energy. We are bringing in the experiences we want to have. We are attracting the teachers who help us grow intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. I am forever grateful to my teachers.

When we look at the big picture, when we enjoy each moment without feeling like we are stuck in it forever, when we acknowledge there is more to life than what we see, we open our hearts to the fullness of our journey.

Let me know what you think.

Quotes on Psychic Surprises
Quotes from two Psychics - Psychic Surprises

I asked several psychics, "What is the most surprising thing about psychic ability?" Here are two answers.

Amy Jacobson says:

"The most surprising thing is the effect on my outlook on life. There are certain things in awareness and understanding that we have that other people might not have. It helps me deal with difficult situations. I'm not afraid of death. I understand the need to breathe through negative emotions. I recognize the interactions between people when they get a negative vibration, and I know to stay above it without judgement. I can deal with things in a non-judgmental way. Everyone is doing the best they can. I can see it and recognize it, but not get caught up in it. I can stay focused on what I need to do."

Amy Jacobson

Teri Thene answered:

"The most surprising thing is the ‘who me?' attitude. I was raised Catholic and I never dreamed in a million years that I would be doing this work.

"The other thing is the feedback I receive from people. Yesterday, someone who is a born again Christian, a close friend of mine, said, ‘You are 1000 percent on.' I thanked her. The most surprising thing is that it would be me!

"One more thing. When I was little, I used to shock people with the things I would say. How could I possibly know that? Then I suppressed. I was held back in kindergarten because of it. I had a conversation with my dad when I was four. In my head, I was thinking ‘reincarnation' and he was thinking of the Catholic way of ‘you never die and come back.' I have always been this way."

Limits to Psychic Ability

Are there Limits to what Psychics can do?

Some people who ask me about psychics have a preconceived notion that every psychic can read their future, talk to their pet, and connect with people who have crossed to the other side. A few psychics can do all these things, but most psychics are focused in one or two areas; they don't do it all. Some psychics are animal communicators, others bring forth inspirational messages, others are medical intuitives and others connect with people who are in spirit.

However, many psychics tell me that they receive whatever message the client needs to hear. This broadens their ability to relay meaningful messages.

In this world of multiple gifts and talents, I have uncovered a few general limits to psychic ability:

Psychics only do what their gifts allow them to do.

Each reader has a personal skill set. For example, some psychics can talk to the dead and other psychics can't. Some psychics see the future while other psychics see the emotions around a current issue, but can't see the future.

Psychics can't read for someone without that person's permission.

Reading someone without their permission is a violation of the person's privacy.

Psychics are not allowed to tell everything they know.

Psychics often know information which they are not allowed to share and this can be very difficult for them. The information cannot be shared either because the clients are not ready to hear the information, or the clients need to go through personal adversity so they can learn and grow. Psychics cannot interfere with another soul's destiny. In addition, most psychics are not allowed to predict death. Psychics often wonder why they are permitted to know things which they cannot share.

Not surprisingly, some clients say that they only want to hear the good, not the bad, and this also limits what psychics can tell them.

It is difficult to understand the time frames for future events.

Cherie Fraine explained that one of the difficult things about a reading is telling the difference between "spirit time" and "people time." Time is an artificial construct. There is no time on the other side, yet we measure time on Earth. In spirit time, "soon" could be anything from tomorrow until three months from now. She has worked out a system with her Spirit Guides and the Universe to use Tarot cards to be precise about time. She had to work with her Guides for quite a while to get everyone organized so they could provide information in the specified time frames.

Psychics can't read clearly for themselves, their close family members or their friends.

Psychics usually can't read as clearly for themselves as they can read for other people so they don't always benefit from personal messages. They have to talk to other psychics to make sure that they are on their own right path.

Raquel Spencer, a Light Worker, commented:

"I can't even see my own life past the next three months! I never know what is coming. I have never been able to see my future. I think this is comfortable for me. If I knew what was coming, I might fight it. I might get in my own way. I have been trained to be okay with not knowing what was coming. If anyone had told me that I would have gone to Ireland, Maui, the Carribean, through the Panama Canal, and to Cost Rica in a three-month period, I would have told them that they were out of their mind! I would have blocked myself from being able to do it."

Furthermore, psychics often feel that messages for close friends and relatives could be colored by their own thoughts about the issues. Once they love somebody, it can be difficult to think logically and get straight answers.

Jackie Chin explained the information balance in her personal experience:

"Most readers cannot read for themselves or their immediate family members. I think this is because everyone has a right to their privacy. However, if there is an emergency, or something that is going to fully unbalance the family, then I do get information concerning the event. It may not be complete, but it will alert me to call, or do whatever I need to do, to see who is in trouble."

Psychics can't heal family members or friends.

Some psychics work on family members and friends while others are reluctant to do so. Delphina Nova provided a perspective on why she doesn't work on the people she is close to: "It is almost like when someone is an authority figure, a minister, a priest, or a doctor; it's easy to abuse the power because we are human, so I have taken an oath not to work on family or friends."

Let me know if you have questions, comments, or anything to add to the list.

 Quote from a Psychic - Palm Readings

I asked a palm reader why readings change over time. Does the palm change? She answered:

"Of course it does. It is soft living leather and it is constantly renewing itself. Old skin cells flake away and new skin cells grow in. You use your hands all the time. You snap your fingers when you have an idea, you clap your hands when you are happy, you clench your fists when you are upset. Every time you move the muscles and the capillaries underneath the skin, the skin will change. Life patterns show up.

"It takes about six months for changes in your life to show up in your hand because it takes that long for old skin cells to flake away. The hands change."

Walking Babies to the Edge of The Veil

 "I walk babies to the edge of The Veil"

A few months ago, a woman with psychic abilities told me, "I walk babies to the edge of The Veil." This was such a powerful statement that I wanted to know more. A few weeks ago, we had a long conversation so I could find out about her work.

Sandy Galitzer Easley is a pediatric nurse. She takes care of fragile babies, often in their homes after being released from the hospital. Sandy uses her intuition and abilities to:

1) Help babies heal.

Sandy provides nursing assistance to families during the day. She often accompanies sick babies as they are moved from the hospital to their home. She teaches caregivers how to use the equipment which accompanies these children and how to care for the babies.

There is something about her connection with the children that makes things happen. Sandy told me that she had cared for a baby which had been oxygen deprived at birth. The baby had failed the hearing and sight tests and was assumed to be deaf and blind. The baby's eyes went in different directions. After Sandy worked with the baby for several months, the baby's eyes began to focus. Now, she can see.

When I asked Sandy what she had done with this baby, she told me that she had sat with her, watched videos, pointed out things, and talked to the baby. Nothing extraordinary, but the baby had dramatically improved.

I asked, "Do you feel like you have a healing touch?"

Sandy answered, "Healing energy comes through me. It is very strong. My arms burn. My fingers tingle. I can put my hands on and focus energy."

Sandy also knows what babies need. For example, if a child's neck is twisted, Sandy may feel a twist in her own neck and know that the child needs to be repositioned.

2) Help babies cross to The Other Side, when healing is not possible.

Some babies are destined for short lives. Sandy can assure babies and children that it is okay to let go. She supports them.

Sandy shared this story. She was traveling out-of-state when she heard one of her baby patients say, "Nurse Sandy, Nurse Sandy. I'm happy and I'm healthy. Nurse Sandy, I love you."

Sandy asked the baby why she had come to her? What had happened? Turns out the baby had died during surgery. She had come to let Nurse Sandy know what even though she had crossed over, she was fine. The baby's surgery had been scheduled for after Sandy's return to Tucson. The surgery had been moved up and Sandy had not been notified of the change.

I asked, "Do you really walk them to the edge of The Veil?"

Sandy replied, "I feel it super-deep in my heart. I can tell when this is happening. It's not just babies; even when adults are passing, for some reason, I know it's time.

"I see who is on the other side. I feel them crossing. I think I see them too, but not fully, more shadowy. It's almost like I am in their body so I can't see their body.

"If I've never met the people on the other side, I won't know who is greeting them. However, I have been able to say, ‘There's one elderly woman and there is . . .', but I can't say who they are. They don't hold up names tags. Wouldn't it be nice if they held up a name?"

3) Help elderly patients who are "stuck."

Some elderly people are not well, but are afraid to cross over. Sandy can answer their questions and help them understand that there is another side to go to. Not everyone is confident that the soul survives the death of the body.

Even when caregivers can't understand the words an elderly person is mumbling, Sandy knows what is being said, or what is on their mind. She hears them clearly, just as she hears the babies who aren't yet verbal.

4) Communicate with The Other Side.

Sandy has provided psychic readings for four or five years. She is a Medium. According to Sandy, "Connecting people with their loved ones is a very important part of my work."

Using a Circle Board, she communicates with people who are in spirit, as well as Guides and angels. A Circle Board is a tool with words, letters, and phrases on it. Sandy places her fingers on a disc and the disc moves to spell out the communication. As the disc begins to move, Sandy often knows what will be written before it appears. She hears the communication.

5) Understand why children and families are in certain situations.

Sandy said, "Some people ‘come down the chute,' that's what I call it, and are in a difficult situation. They come down briefly to teach someone else a lesson. Then it is time to go."

"Many of my patients are here to teach their parents something. Maybe patience. Or appreciating life. How about trust? You name it. Sometimes the baby stays longer than it intended to stay because the mom isn't getting the lesson. The mom goes to parties and does this and that. Not a balance. I think the baby is trying to teach the mom to slow down and appreciate life. Life is a gift. We are here to give it a whirl. We are sent down the chute because we have something to learn."

As her gift develops, Sandy is finding that she can focus on children. She can help parents understand their children and the energy balance within the family. She sees how family members help each other. This applies to both sick and healthy children.

6) See medical issues before a baby is born.

This is a recently-revealed gift. A few weeks ago, Sandy was speaking with a pregnant woman who knew she was carrying a baby with Down Syndrome. Sandy sensed a river with water gushing. She sent the woman to a pediatric cardiologist for an in-utero ultrasound. The doctor discovered that the baby had a leaking heart valve.

However, as in all things psychic, there are no guarantees about what Sandy might pick up.

Thank you, Sandy, for helping me understand new aspects of psychic ability.

If you are interested in contacting Sandy Easley, you can text or call her at 520-272-4476.

Emma's Surprise
Quote from a Psychic

I asked Emma, "What is the most surprising thing about being psychic?"

She answered:

"It is accessible. It's not as foreign as I would have thought a long time ago. Years ago, I never would have thought how natural it is. Now that I recognize how natural psychic ability is, it's almost relaxing. It has supplied me with comfort and a realization that it makes sense. Things have always been this way. Now, they make sense.

"The clarity that psychic abilities provide is also surprising. These abilities answer more questions than I would have thought. Years ago, I would have thought psychic ability would open mysteries. That's how it was in the beginning. Now, it's answered so much more than I ever imagined."

Amplifying Hope

Amplifying Hope

I've had a request for a blog topic! Someone asked how we can have hope for the future when things look so bleak?

The Present

Revisit any time in human history and the future has always looked bleak. Wild animals, cold nights, hot days, famine, hurricanes, war, and plagues. Humans have always had to deal with adversity. This period in time is one of the golden ones. We may have challenges, but we also have running water, electricity, food in the supermarkets, and drugs to combat illness. Things are at least as good as they have ever been.

We also have a hurricane threatening Florida and a hurricane which devastated the Houston area. We have politicians itching to use nuclear weapons. We have a nation which is politically divided. I am not discounting these things.

To balance them, we also have a good cup of coffee, and when we walk our dogs, we run into neighbors we like. We have family barbecues and S'mores. When we don't feel like cooking, we can bring in a load of Chinese food, hang out together, and swap stories. Maybe travel stories, maybe baby stories, maybe stories about the entertaining minutia of our lives. People who can laugh about their lives will always have a source of entertainment.

Our view of life and our optimism can be anchored by acknowledging the things we love. Some call this gratitude. We are encouraged to write three things every evening which happened that day for which we are grateful. This activity shifts our focus from things which were less-than-joyful to things we appreciate.

Gratitude is a starting point, but I don't think that gratitude is the key, as much as appreciation. Gratitude implies that there is someone or something to which we are grateful. This can be an intellectual stretch. There doesn't always have to be a super power behind the beauty in our lives. Sometimes the grace of a flower speaks for itself. We notice it. We take a moment to appreciate the exquisite flower for exactly what it is. It moves us. It confirms the beauty of the world. Then we take that moment, breathe in, expand the feeling of joy in our heart, and send it down into Mother Earth. This action anchors our love and appreciation in the physical world.

I often write about the non-physical world and the love which is available through our connection with the unseen. It's all true. Yet there are times when we can look around, know that life is glorious, and generate love on our own.

When I suggested to the person who posed this question that every evening he list three things for which he is grateful, he said, "That would get repetitive: my family, birds singing, etc." Ah, the challenge is to find new things to appreciate each day. Add to the list. Look for examples. If the repetitive topic is "my family," specify the thing which someone said or did that day which you treasured.

After a few months, this appreciation practice becomes a habit which anchors our focus on the positive.

I'm going to encourage everyone who is worried about the future to emphasize today. Who knows what the future holds? With all my work with psychics, no one seems to know exactly how things will play out.

The Future

Psychics tell me that we are entering a time of peace. We are in the last throes of conflict. Negativity needs to bubble up so it can dissipate. We are entering the fifth dimension.

I ask, "When?" No one can pin down the date we begin to get along.

We live in the moment. Living in the past is a regurgitation, living in the future isn't possible. Focus on the delight of the moment and do your life's work.

We create our personal future though the choices we make. Working with the Universe, we co-create our reality. We can keep building our skill sets (technology, cooking, emotional coping skills, etc.) so we are ready for whatever comes.

When we contemplate the larger world, we feel less control. Remember "scalability"? As we develop self-confidence and a sense of balance, we can scale it up to benefit the world. We can expand our joy.

"Hope" is our amusement as we daydream about the future. When we see the charm in the present, we can coax our minds to hope for a future better than today. As we anchor love and appreciation into the earth, we can amplify hope. It's part of the same bright ball of love.

Things you know (now do them Wink ):

1) Have a sense of humor about your life and your travels.

2) Stop and smell the roses.

3) Acknowledge beauty in the world.

4) Breathe into, and expand, that appreciative feeling in your heart.

5) Send that feeling to the Earth to anchor your love in the world.

6) Remind your thoughts to create the future you want to live.

Let me know how this works for you.

Rich & Famous?

Quote from a Psychic - Do you need to talk to a Rich and Famous Psychic?

"There is a lot of work to be done, but if you are a famous psychic, there are people you can't reach. If you are poor, there are people you can't reach. There have to be people working at the rich level and at the poor level. Everyone has to have the opportunity to share at all the levels. Rich is not successful. Rich is just a different environment."

Scalability: How to Expand your Compassionate Heart

Announcement: The Mystic Messengers Psychic Fair will be this Sunday, September 3, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the DoubleTree Inn in Tucson, AZ, across from Reid Park. I'll be there and I hope to see you.



From smallest and closest, to largest and farthest, everything works on a sliding scale.

Can you remember a time when you were devastated? Completely at a loss? Woeful? Deep dark feelings? Then something happened to help you, or time passed and you healed, or you talked to someone and gained a different perspective on what was happening. Your internal feelings were as real as anything in the world. Thank goodness, you recovered! You regained your balance and your sense of mastery.

Now, scale it up a bit. Think about what is happening in East Texas. Devastating flooding, desperate rescues, drowning, despair, loss. The same thing which happened in your personal life is happening on a larger scale. East Texans are in the middle of their catastrophe. Eventually, we hope, there will be healing, new perspectives, experiences stored for future reference, and recovery. Eventually, balance and a new sense of mastery will emerge for each individual and for the region.


In our personal distress, we need compassion. Both self-compassion, and the good will of others to understand our situation and help us cope. Once we see how this healing process works, we can scale it up to help others.

When one of my friends or relatives is hospitalized, the good work done by hospitals is in my immediate consciousness. When I don't go to the hospital daily, it's easy to forget about the people in those rooms who seek good health. It's easy to forget about the staff, the doctors, and the healers who tend to them. In my meditations, I try to remember that even when this isn't part of my daily life, people are in hospitals dealing with illness every day, and other people are there to help them. I send them light. Then I think about people in hospitals all over the world.

In this situation, something is in my immediate consciousness, then moves out to a larger consciousness, then becomes a thought for global consciousness. All moving along a continuum, gently expanding up the line to a larger scale.

Psychics talk about this all the time.

John Hunter explains that everything is scalable. If you understand how an atom works, you can understand how a human works, and you can extend that out to understand how a universe works. If you can understand things at any one point, you can understand all of it.

I asked John how he helped skeptics understand psychic ability. He answered:

"I usually tell people about the universe or the solar system. Or I show them how nature works and then just put that on a smaller scale, or a larger scale. The same structure is consistent from the smallest existence to the largest. People can see how patterns of communication, bonding, growth, and acceptance work in nature. It's all around us. Things communicate without words. Even in the electronic world, things communicate without words. Things communicate without being attached. One way or another, things communicate in a way which we don't see."

He added:

"If they are skeptical about one aspect of that process (like psychic ability), but acknowledge the other 99%, they can see that it is all the same process. Communication is happening all around them; they are choosing not to view it."

Another aspect of scale? Jeff Sonnenburg talked about receiving information on three levels of consciousness: personal consciousness, group consciousness, and Divine Will. These levels of consciousness communicated with him in different voices.

Back to Earth. While Texas is flooding, so are South Asia and India. However, the farther an issue is from us, the less we think about it. It's barely in our consciousness unless we remind ourselves to focus on it.

Remember how you felt at your moment of despair? Extend that longing for compassion to the people in the flooded areas of Texas, then extend your compassionate heart to people around the world who are suffering. Send them light, send them love, then, if you can, send a donation to a charitable organization.

We help each other. We are all connected in the energy. When we lift others, we enlighten the world's energy and we lift ourselves too. We can help others and help ourselves at the same time. Win/win. Helping anyone, helps everyone. Increasing any positive energetic output, affects everyone, everywhere.

Kudos to the Cajun Army, volunteers who arrived with boats to save lives. Kudos to the people who are helping each other, opening their homes and stores to provide a dry spot to land for at least a few days.

What can you do from afar? Add your positive energy. Aid the recovery efforts. Help the people and the animals. Help the land. Send your good energy, your prayers, and your light, and send a check too.

Thanks for listening.
