UNWANTED SEXUAL ADVANCES...WHEN NO IS NOT ENOUGH

October 22, 2011
I've often wondered why we as human beings take kindness for weakness. When a person politely declines by saying no why is that an invitation for negotiation?

I recently had the experience of being approached by a gentleman who invited me out on several occasions. Each time I declined and left it at that.

As I began to run into him more frequently in passing it became clear that he simply was not taking no for an answer.

With this in mind I began to run through the checklist in my head.

Did I explain to him that I simply was not interested? Yes.

Did I tell him that I had no desire to date him? Yes

Did I tell him after repeated attempts that I was not attracted to him? Oh yes!

Did I keep the conversations quick, clear, and to the point? Ummmm....yeah!

So why did he persist?

It's funny because the movies call this behavior romantic. I call it creepy, controlling, and stalker-esque.

With each encounter he became more and more insistent that we should have a relationship & I should like it!

Conversly, I became more and more insistent that he should find a good twelve step meeting and a stable sponsor.

Eventually he came to understand that I was serious & backed off.

But in all honesty, what gives?

Why was there a desperate need to control another human being  when his own life was clearly not shaping up the way he wanted?

I then I began to branch out a bit more and ask...

Why can't we as a people honor the choices & wishes of our fellow human beings without trying to assert an agenda on the basis of sex and gender?

Perhaps this blog offers more questions than answers, but I certaintly feel that it's a great jumping off point!

I believe we are all God incarnate; blessed with the gift of sovereignty.

Maybe we can stop viewing eachother as nameless, faceless objects of gratification and begin to see the divinity in every living thing...maybe we can honor the choices of others regardless of whether or not we agree...

When a person says no that is not grounds for compromise. The conversation is over.

Luckily the "potential suitor" is no longer a permanent fixture in my life.

Still, I feel that we must allow others to experience freedom  if we want to do the same.

Sadly, he did not.

My hope is that one day he'll understand and stop trying to impose his will above all others, but I am certainly not interested in trying to stick around to see it!








 

DO DRUGS REALLY ENHANCE PSYCHIC ABILITIES?

June 27, 2011
So, as I was getting dressed this morning, I felt led to write an article about drug use & psychic abilities.

I have certainly met my share of artists/intuitives who advocate the use of illegal & prescription drugs/alcohol in order to open their creative channels and draw in psychic information.

When I spoke with my spirit guide she simply said that they were mistaken.
 
She mentioned that the drugs incite a chemcial reaction that can be seductive & exhilirating, but not exactly healthy. 

While ...

INTUITIVE READINGS & ENERGETIC EXCHANGE

June 24, 2011
Today I felt led to write a blog post about giving free healings & intuitive readings.

There are definitely times when my spirit guide suggests that I give free or discounted readings to certain people. I do not always know the reasons for this. Nor do I need to know. I simply trust that everything is working out for our best and highest good.

However, my spirit guide has also clearly stated that readings and healings do require energy to perform & therefore there must be some kind of an ener...

The first step lies in identifying the abusive behavior.

Here are some warning signs:

RECLAIMING YOUR POWER

June 22, 2011
A few years ago I made the decision to live for me.

I let go of pleasing others and chose to focus on pleasing myself.

The result was sheer and utter happiness.

My life began to flow in amazing ways & I never felt more at ease.

But with time I reverted back to pleasing others: friends, family, co-workers, clients & suddenly the happiness began to fade.

The freedom and confidence I once exuded began to feel like an act. I was no longer living my bliss. I was ignoring my own needs and focused yet...

SHINE ON

June 19, 2011

I do not have to fall in order for you to fly

We can be beautiful together

SHINE ON

God's own little tapestry

Woven by the hands that sent thee

Sweet divnity flowing from you to me

It's magic after all

SHINE ON

And what a brilliant sight to see

The creator works through you and me

No "yours" & "mine"

Just "us" & "we"

Then a sweet little sigh

And a laugh & a cry

SHINE ON

God lives inside this song

And gently strums along

As we welcome in the dawn

Blissful and free

SHINE ON

HOMELESS IN DAYTONA

June 17, 2011
About a week ago I had the pleasure of visiting Daytona Beach, Florida.

With all it's beauty & splendor, I could not help but notice one issue that was glaringly obvious...the homeless popluation.

While in Daytona, I spent some time talking with people who identified as homeless and was shocked and saddened to find that many of the people I encountered were well over fifty.

Many of the people mentioned that they were waiting for their social security to kick in, at which point they could move i...

STEP INTO THE LIGHT

June 2, 2011
A few days ago, I connected with the spirit of a man who passed away over a decade ago. Yet, he is still on the earth plane.

When I tuned in and asked him why he was still here I got the sense that he was comfortable. Making the transition was too difficult and he wasn't sure what came after the death experience. So, he stayed 

He still resides in the home of his family and they miss him dearly. They also think of him daily, and he is never too far away; just in the other room actually.

As I c...

PSYCHIC ADDICTION PART 3

May 20, 2011
If you are dealing with Psychic Addiction or finding it difficult to trust your intuition I want to help you reclaim the still small voice within.

For many of us this starts in childhood...

All children are naturally intuitive, psychic, and mediumistic. They can discern right from wrong and perceive other dimensions that are not readily visible to the adult eye.

Often times, children have a sixth sense or inner knowing about upcoming events, relationships, and even the impending deaths of loved...
