What isn’t working in your life?

“Time to eliminate things that no longer evolve me.” — Erykah Badu I’m serious. Explore this. Unpack it. Free write on it. If you desire something more in your life that seems unavailable right now… it’s because there’s another version of you waiting to unfurl. You can’t stay the same if you’re hungry for change. You must be willing to change. Get ready to go into uncomfortable places.  Allow the old to fall

We’ve Gotta Let go of All of Our Ghosts

What does your Hungry Ghost need to say?

I sit in a room brimming with noise, bordering on chaos. A heavy smoke of mind chatter and passing thoughts float through the air seeking attention, expression and form. Rain assaults the rooftops and winding streets outside with an aggressive downpour. It feels baptismal. I get lost in the cacophony of sounds until it blend together in harmony. I’m moved by this symphony… accepting chaos until it becomes clarity. Woven

Mind Blowing Thoughts on Life

I have a radical belief that might make you uncomfortable… Everyone in your life is a guest. Yeah, I said it… they are a guest. Not one single person in your life has any say over who you are and what you are about. They have no claim to your time, your energy, your body, your mind or your spirit. If anyone tries to tell you otherwise… you have my

TRUTH: You are Fucking Powerful

I know life can feel like a black hole trying to suck you in. You feel exhausted, defeated and unable to fight through another day. You want to crawl back into bed and forget about the world that is demanding something from you. I get it, babe!

6 Tips for a Successful & Empowering Intuitive Reading

Seeds Waiting to Bloom

“unravel me a distant cord on the outside is forgotten a constant need…to get along and the animal awakens and all I feel is black and white” -Sarah McLachlan  I am a seed buried in the warm, loamy ground.

How to Grow Your Soul in Darkness

Dark times come knocking on our door when we least expect it. The slow dissent into our personal storm is something that each one of us knows all to well.

The harder you push, the harder the darkness pushes

How to Work with Your Shadow Self

“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. The latter procedure, however, is disagreeable and therefore not popular.”― C.G. Jung FEEDING THE SHADOW SELF Disconnected from our empowerment the shadow (those unloved, unacknowledged parts of us) grows stronger and thrives on more of the same. Rather than interacting with life, we react. Reactionary living is acidic, corrosive and destructive. That is not

Honoring Yourself During the Autumn Equinox

As the world slips into the deeper mysteries that come with Winter this is a time of reaping what you have sewn, preparing for inner journeys, and giving thanks for the bounty of the year. As we stand at the threshold between dark and light we are reminded of inner balance, and the need to acknowledge the shadow.

How to Work with Intention Candles

Changing your life begins with changing the energetic story you are projecting into the world. Action must proceed intention. And intention is the seed of creation.

I find myself filled with so much pain when I see a beautiful person breaking under the pressure of daily life.

But rarely do they listen.  The heart of prayer is true communication which is the act of sharing, listening, receiving and contemplating. Yet, most prayers are superficial,

Empaths are Sensitive to Sound and 3 Tips for Coping

Empaths are sensitive to sound. If you are empathic you can confirm this. I know I often will become overwhelmed by a lot of noise, especially in a crowded place or when there are competing noises.

How Children See into Other Realms, by Melissa Leath

  Janet told me that she used to have “floating people” in her room. She was too young to know that adults refer to them as spirits or ghosts.

5 Tips for the Thriving Empath

Empaths are highly attuned, sensitive individuals who have a natural connection to the subtle worlds. These are the subtle worlds of thought, emotion, spirit and energy. These people tend to be artistic, intuitive and right-brained individuals who process the world around them through “feeling”. The reality of the empath can be confusing and painful because they tend to take the weight of the world on their shoulders. On a vibratory

How to Use High Vibration to Spiritually Cleanse and Protect Yourself

I have written extensively on spiritual/psychic cleansing, which is the act of releasing negative, unwanted and unintentional energies that surround you. This is an affirmative process that defines your space, and reestablishes your connection to your highest good. With that being said, spiritual cleansing is just that cleaning.

In this life you will have mapped out many things. Some of the lessons you have

Natural Foods, Empathic Child Challenges, and Picky Psychic Kids, by Melissa Leath

Being a young empathic, your child could be sensitive to many external things, besides other people’s energy. Examples could be loud noises or extreme light, clothing that rubs their skin in an irritating manner, pollen and other outside irritants such as weeds and flowers.

Five Keys to Empowering Yourself with Love

I have been contemplating this idea of self-love more. It’s so simple, and yet so hard to attain. Really being able to look yourself in the eye, and say… I love you.

Originally Appeared in Soul Path Magazine August 2014 There is something so exciting and beautiful about seeing someone’s aura blooming, growing and pulsating in front of you. It’s a lightshow of rainbow colors that reflect the person’s inner world, their mood, emotions, and the things they are pulling and pushing in and out of their lives. The aura is the unique energetic story each and every person is telling. The

A Winter Solstice Ceremony

The Winter Solstice is the return of the Sun. This is a time to honor the graceful flow of age, and death. And to welcome the light back into our lives. As you release the old… as we did in October, you begin to make space and call in energy for new projects, new life, and good feelings. Allow yourself time to honor the new light that is coming in.

Shedding, Growing, Transforming

This is a time of endings. Things are cycling out of your life, and creating space for a new phase, a new mindset, and a new year. As you begin to move into the slow, and insulated realm of the winter months you will find it natural to go within, and reflect. It is our primal nature to change with the seasons, but in the modern world we become somewhat

How to Use Citrine the Path Opener

The idea of the Labyrinth has always fascinated me because it is a metaphor for life. There are many challenges we encounter; we look for the “right” path to follow. But if you stop and be still you realize that the only path you can follow is the one before you. You must keep moving forward to reach your highest potential. That doesn’t mean there is a set destiny that

Happy Halloween

Samhain or Halloween (as it is more commonly know) is a time to honor those who have passed, including the parts of ourselves that we are learning to let go of. This time of year creates a gateway that helps us step through space and time, and more importantly into the mysterious world of our inner universe. I urge you to follow the whispering winds of the season as they

How to Distinguish Between Ghost, Spirits, and Other Types of Hauntings

This is the time of year when people notice invisible things tugging at their psyche. Because the boundary between planes has become thinner it makes it easier for things to be detected, and to interact with them. This brings up questions about ghost, haunting and spirit activity. People tend to use the word spirit and ghost interchangeable, though they really aren’t the same thing. They are similar… both being disembodied, but

4 Signs of Spirit Activity

The whole month of October fills me with magic! It awakens some ancient feelings that stir deep within. There is a feeling that pulls me back to center.

The Power of Purging

Embrace the wisdom of letting go. It is time to release heavy attachments that deplete you and bleed away your joy. So often we hold onto things much longer than we need to.

Fear is one of the most crippling emotions we experience. Are you allowing your fears to get in the way of your most precious dreams? Spirit wants you to know that you are safe now.

Keeping Composure

We shift and create our own reality, telling our energetic story based on our thoughts, ideas, beliefs and fears. Sometimes we can’t always change the immediate situation.

Book Review: The Art of Intuition

I AM NOT A SCIENTIST, but I am convinced that the greater your empathy and the higher your spiritual development, the more intuitive experiences you will have, until such things become so ordinary that you hardly notice them anymore.

No Matter What They Say

I am constantly blown away by the amount of time and energy people spend on telling other people how to live.

We all have our ideas of how things work, the best way to live… but your
