Ghosts Get Out!

Ghost

Haunted by Ghosts

Recently I was told about a TV show that features a psychic medium teaching kids how to get rid of ghosts. As I don’t have cable (yes TV does rot your brain and now science even says so, not just my parents), I’ve relied on the descriptions of my psychic friends as to what they think about paranormal TV shows.

Apparently, this psychic medium teaches kids to yell very loudly at the spirits telling them to “Go away!” and “Leave me alone!”. Aside from being very indiscriminate as to who these kids are yelling at (not all ghosts are trying to get your attention to be irritating or annoying), what are we really teaching them about spirit?

Yes, there are some times when you want to be strong and determinedly tell the spirit to leave. For example, it can be creepy when ghosts start moving objects! But how do you know if it’s your Aunt in spirit who is shaking the bed when you sleep, or if it’s a drop in spirit who just is up to no-good antics? [click to continue…]

Psychics and the Dark Side

One of my students writes to me:

“You have many clients from different backgrounds and I thought you might be interested to know, from Russian, Ukrainian and people from some other countries, a lot of people believe in Dark and Light powers psychics use…

what is more interesting, many (I am not sure how much, but _a lot_) believe that dark side is more powerful and stronger, simply because lightworkers don’t curse and spell and also don’t remove curses.”

Is this really true? That the dark side is more powerful and stronger than the light? Funny how the answers come – sometimes even before the questions are asked! Take Yoda for instance. [click to continue…]

Dream Interpretation

Dreaming

Ever feel like your dreams are trying to tell you something? Maybe they are. Many people have experienced predictive dreams, dreams with messages.

Some people have had family members who have passed come through their dreams. Is this real or is this just the unconscious mind sorting through memories and experiences? [click to continue…]

Tarot vs. Oracle Cards

Most of us are familiar with the Tarot deck. Pictures of the Hanged Man, The Tower, or Death card have been used as an ominous warning in Hollywood movies. But the Tarot is actually a tool for guidance and transformation.

The major arcana are all the “face” cards in the Tarot deck. That means all the cards that are not wands, cups, swords, or coins (disks). There are 78 Tarot cards in a deck. Major arcana cards are numbered and start at 0 with the Fool card and end at 21 with The World card. Did you know that there is a story of transformation in these cards? [click to continue…]

Just received a question from one of our readers:

“Hi i was just reading your blog and you stated that no one can make anyone do anything including coming back to a relationship. i guess my question is if i want someone who i was in a relationship with to come back to me you wouldn’t be able to help me?” It’s a good question – can a psychic bring someone back?

It’s a good question and one that comes up now and again. Here is my response: [click to continue…]
