Long-Distance Readings

“You do readings over the phone?!”

“Yep, I sure do! And email!”

“How on earth does that work?”

It amuses me that people are baffled by phone and email readings! But at least they believe a reading can be done. That is a good first step. But why is it more believable that a reading can be done in person, but not long-distance?

I think people are quick to believe in an in-person reading because they can see it. They can see the cards, they can see your face, and they can touch something. They can respond and react with more than just their voice.

The disconnect is most people still don’t understand energy!

A reading is an energetic evaluation! When someone reads you, they are tapping into the energies that surround you. They are recounting your energetic story… the one that you are creating in your personal universe… which links up with the big Universe and makes things happen!

Even if a reader is using Tarot cards, or tealeaves, or palms, or runes… they are only tools. The tools are creating patterns based on energy, and the reader is interpreting those patterns.

And… energy has NO limitations. It isn’t bound by time and space. It doesn’t have to conform to gravity. Energy is anywhere and everywhere. A thought can be sent to the other side of the world instantly. A dream can bring two people together who have never met before. That is the magic of the unseen world!

So when you have a long distance reading… you may not be right there. But your energy is!

…so if you want a reading via phone or email… it will be just as magical as if you were sitting across from me :-)

Psychics Are Human Too

There is a lot of pressure that comes with working in a spiritual field. You have people who pass judgment on you constantly… either your being laughed at because you believe in such kooky things, or your being judged for being in league with the Devil, or you are considered a scam artist. It’s sad that there is so much hate and judgment sent toward such a beautiful thing. But they say that the darkness seeks to dim the light.

Recently spiritual teacher, author and psychic/medium, Sylvia Browne, passed away. She was such a beautiful light in the vast community of spiritual leaders and teachers. Her candor and wit were unparalleled and her writing touched many. She was often under fire for her matter-of-fact style and her abrasive tone. And also for her highly publicized inaccurate predictions.

What is so sad is that she dedicated her life to helping people. She did readings for years for public audiences, she wrote so many books on the subject of the after life and lectured all over the world…. All in an attempt to lesson the blow of being on this earth! But in the end she has been mocked and degraded by people claiming she is a fake and that she, “Should’ve seen it coming!”

I want to say that there is no psychic/reader/medium/intuitive who is 100%… not one! There are some readers who are better than others. There are some readers who are better at certain subjects than others. And there are some readers who are just having a bad day! Readers are human… they are not infallible, or all knowing. To put that pressure on someone is ridiculous and it takes away your personal power.

And the fact is… a reader can only access the information that 1.) They are meant to share at that time, and 2.) That you allow them to see because it’s your energy they are tapping into… you are the key to your personal universe. A reading is not meant to map out your life and tell you how to live. A reading is meant to affirm, guide and direct you… and you should always test it against your own intuition.

Now, I will not say that I know Sylvia Browne’s heart or her personal intentions. I don’t know if she had people’s best interest in mind, or if she was being deceptive. I don’t believe that she was… I met her and she was warm, inviting and extremely loving. But I cannot speak for anyone else. I can say that I find her writing very inspirational, and a very good place for people to begin their spiritual journey.

The lesson we can all learn from her passing is that we need to empower ourselves and use our own intuition and judgment whenever asking anyone for advice… and that we are all human and prone to mistake… and sadly, that people like to focus on the bad and completely negate the good.

My prayer is that all the hate and judgment dissipates and that people see things with brighter more loving eyes. I know she is probably living it up on the Other Side…

And, Just remember that psychics are human too!

Just Like the White Wing Dove: R.I.P Sylvia Browne

I was devastated to learn that Sylvia Browne passed away this morning. I slept horribly last night, woke up many times, and eventually found myself sitting up in bed with a pounding headache. The day began with an “off” feeling that persisted thought the course of the day. When I finally heard the news about her passing it all made sense!

Sylvia has been a beautiful influence in many peoples lives, including mine. Her books, lectures and teachings have touched on so many deep and moving things. I know that I devoured her books when I was younger, and even now I reference her work in my own. Though some people have a negative view of her, I’ve always found her wit, candor and wisdom to be uplifting and insightful.

I met Sylvia at one of her lectures when I was still in High School. Her warm eyes looked into me, and she pulled me closer and listen as I spoke. She signed my books and conversed with me… for those few minutes she gave me her undivided attention. I gifted her with a journal I had bound for her. A few months later I found a letter in the mail written to me from Sylvia, thanking me for the gift, the conversation and apologizing for the delay in responding. I will never forget that.

Sylvia, I know you are having a wonderful celebration wherever you are. We will miss you, but your spirit, your work and all your love will still carry us through for years to come. And if you ever need to chat… you know how to find me ;-)

My prayers go out to Sylvia, and her family. I am sorry for your loss, and I know we are all deeply saddened by the loss of such a legend. All of prayers are lighting her path back home.

All the best,

Shaheen

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Rose Water

Rose water has become one of my all time favorite spiritual cleansing tools. Sometimes you just need a gentle lift in the atmosphere. I’ve found that using authentic rose water in an atomizer can bring about so many wonderful changes in the energy and texture of a persons aura, or the environment… not to mention it smells amazing!

There is something so soothing about the way rose water works. It envelops the energy in the area, and transmutes it into a lovely, delicate vibration that is conducive to peace and positive thinking. I like to mist my space before a reading. I also mist myself in the morning before my day begins to “lift my spirit” and at key times throughout the day.

I’ve found rose water to be a wonderful tool for creating a magnetic aura. When you mist yourself you raise your vibration and surround yourself in a beautiful glowing light that pulls positive people toward you. It helps you to communicate affectively, and eloquently.

Authentic rose water is the hydrosol by-product from distilled rose petals in the process of creating rose essential oil. It has such a lovely smell and it is great for your skin. It can be added to foods and drinks to infuse a delicious floral flavor!

Rose water has become such an essential part of my spiritual practice. I use it to bless objects, such as crystals, candles or things that I’ve thrifted. This is a great way to clear the object, and to give it a nice spark of magic!

Understanding Intuition: Insight Seventeen

To develop keen intuitive skills you must see it in real time. Keep a running log of your dreams, visions, gut feelings, impressions, and persistent messages. You can revisit your records to highlight key areas, and begin to connect the dots. You will begin to see a thread running through your experiences, and the law of cause and effect will become apparent. You will find your point of power in your experiences because you will know how one thing leads to the next, and you will be able to use that to your advantage while manifesting the reality you want.

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: A Spiritual Bath

When the day hangs heavy on me like a thick fog, I retreat to a nice warm bath! Spiritual bathes are a wonderful way to lighten your aura, and release negativity. For me it is a spiritual experience, an act of prayer and serenity.

I light white candles for purity, burn nag champa for spiritual blessing, and I fill my teapot with aromatic chamomile, with a drop of vanilla. It’s important to set the stage with things that lift and alter your state of mind; this is the heart of ritual. What makes you feel at ease? What speaks to your spirit? What brings out your inner gypsy?

To prepare your bath, run the water to a temperature of your liking. You want to feel at peace while you soak. This isn’t a bath for cleaning off physical debris; this is a bath strictly for rinsing out your aura! As the water is running you can add a few drops of lavender essential oil, or tea tree oil, or citrus oil.

After the tub has filled to the desired level, I like to add two cups of Epson or sea salt. Salt is a powerful cleansing agent that actually pulls the negative energy from your aura and nullifies it. You could also add a cup of vinegar, lemon juice, or sage tea.

Any combinations of the above suggestions are appropriate! Pick one or two that you fill will combine together nicely. There’s no reason to use all the ingredients… it’s not going to get you “cleaner”.

After I’ve added my desired cleansing ingredients, I like to say a prayer to charge the bath with intention. It can be simple. Impromptu. Or traditional.

Let the vibrant light of the divine bless this water.

Fill it with energy to heal and cleanse my spiritual bodies.
This water will wash away the weights and stresses of the day.

I will emerge lighter, brighter and refreshed.

The essence of angels infuses this water to uplift my spirit.

Amen. 

You may write your own prayer, or pick a prayer that gives you a feeling of cleansing. If the Lords prayer offers you a sense of security and serenity, that is appropriate. If the lyrics to, “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac makes you feel new, that’s appropriate. It’s all in the intention.

Now you can enter the bath. Close your eyes take deep cleansing breaths. Allow the aromas to fill you. Let your mind be lulled into a state of peace. The steam of the water will work through your system loosening and dissipating heavy energies. The water will absorb and neutralize attachments in your aura.

At this time I like to visualize the process of my energy going from dull and dirty, to luminous. See yourself beginning to glow like the Moon emerging from the clouds. You are being renewed. You are being reborn.

The more powerful your intention, the more powerful the effect.

Enjoy the process. Sip your tea. Sing at the top of your lungs. Converse with your angels. Continue more prayer. Read something up lifting. Let the candle light, the sweet scents and the warm water empower you. You are soaking in liquid light.

Remain in the bath for at least 10 minutes. Remember this is not a bath to wash your hair, or to take care of any other grooming. This is only for the spirit!

Once you’ve stepped from the bath visualize yourself wrapped in the white light of the divine. Ask for your guides to surround you in protection, love and healing. You should feel renewed!

This is the perfect ritual if: you have had an extremely difficult day, you are feeling drained, uninspired, angry, ill, scattered, or just generally “off”. I perform this ritual a few times a week!

How do you feel, now?

(If you are pregnant, have allergies, or any medical condition, please, be sure to take proper precaution. I am not a doctor, nor am I responsible for any results from this process.)

The Gypsy’s Tricks For Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Psychic Armor

Do you feel icky in public? Does your mood instantly change for no reason? Do you ever feel thick clouds hanging heavy over a room? Do you experience thoughts that come from nowhere? How about feeling like someone is in your bubble? Sounds like you need to put on some psychic armor!

The Reality of Energy

There is a never endless storm of energies brewing around you. Energy hangs heavy in the air and floats about, mostly, undetected. People invade your space by trying to intermingle their alien energies with your own. It is easy to be caught in the tangled web of energy, which leads to mood poisoning, energetic cords and attachments. These are all signs of a weakened psychic shield.

The importance of surrounding yourself with energetic protection is the utmost! Your energy is a glowing, swirling mass of beautiful golden light. It is magnetic, brilliant and sparkling. To quote Gollum, it is, “The precious!” Your energetic field is your life force, a conglomeration of everything that you are… and if you aren’t psychically protected, everything you encounter!

Your aura is filled with all the thoughts, feelings and experiences you have. You’ve also collected a number of attachments, and cords in your aura, which eat away at your energy and leave you drained. It’s the equivalent of leaving your wifi unlocked… But WORSE!

You Need Psychic Protection When

If you have difficulty sleeping at night. If you feel foggy at work. If you are drained after spending time with a particular person. If you are drained, angry, anxious, depressed, physically sick and spaced out. If you feel like people are pulling at your energy, thus draining it. Or you are taking on other people’s energy.

You can become a victim to a psychic vampire (someone who sucks away your essence) or pick up empathetic impressions (you take on the emotions/ mental state of someone else).

Protect your energy! Protect your life-force! Protect your precious!

What You Can Do

Surround yourself with a shield of protection! Regardless of how you perceive Divinity, you have access to spiritual protection. You should surround yourself with a beautiful bubble of divine light. Have you had your does of white light today?

If not… try this! Visualize a white light falling from above, like water, encompassing your entire body, from head to toe. See the light surround you in a warm, robust bubble of white fire. As you surround yourself, set the intention that, “Only energies serving my highest good may enter this divine shield”. Nothing can cross this shield!

Take It a Step Further

Visualize a shield of mirrors, reflecting outward, surrounding the bubble of white light. These mirrors will deflect any negativity and harm sent your way. Intended, “All harm and negativity sent toward me shall be deflected”.

If you are feeling particularly vulnerable you can call your angels and spirit guides in. Remember, your guides are most helpful when you ask for them. You can ask for the aid of any angel, deity, master or saint that feels right to you.

I often call upon Archangel Michael. He is the divine protector. His energy is intense, vibrant, loving and extremely powerful. He always appears to me as a tall, dark headed man, with a beautiful smile, chiseled jaw and sturdy figure. His eyes burn with devotion and authority. His gestures are gentle, and filled with grace. He wields a fiery sward to ward off harm, and cut through negativity.

When I call Archangel Michael, I ask him and his band of helpers to stand beside me. To protect me from all harm. And to cut away any negative and stray energy which may be affecting me. I know without a doubt that he is there.

Explore what works for you!

Begin with the simple white light exercise. This is the easiest way to protect yourself. You can do it in a flash. Whenever you are feeling invaded and vulnerable, close your eyes, take a deep breath and see the light surround you. Zip yourself in tight!

You may find a certain color, other than white, makes you feel safe and secure. You can surround yourself with colors of any particular intention, along with your white light. You can see yourself surround by a shield of any material. Whatever works for you to create a strong and sturdy energetic shield!

Try it before taking the bus to work, or before going into a stressful meeting or entering a busy coffee shop.

See what happens. It couldn’t hurt to try a little white light!! I promise it will help.

What psychically unsafe situations have you found yourself in? Have you experienced any of these symptoms? How do you protect yourself psychically?
