ABOUT THE STORYJune MacDonald's fate is sealed the day she is born when her mother defies her husband by not naming their new daughter after a Catholic saint, as is their tradition. No one can foresee that June will grow up to threaten the family by revealing her mother's secret past in the Scottish Highlands. After a tragedy the Scottish MacDonalds emigrate to San Francisco in hopes for a new start. There, young June begins to have visions that haunt her mother. Her rigid and abusive father will not tolerate them. That doesn't stop the feisty girl. Her three sisters try to protect their little sister from their father's wrath with often hilarious tactics. The family is on the brink of imploding when June and her sisters come of age in the 1960's Haight Ashbury scene. Their father's declaration seems to be coming true: "Doomed to hell, every last one of you." In order to save June her mother must stand up to her husband. This poignant mother daughter story is about of how family changes over time and addresses the issues immigrants face in their new country. It's a story of acceptance and reconciliation and the world of mysticism. A book for the young and older readers.

HOW THE STORY CAME TO BE: My mother's love of books and her great imagination for storytelling inspired me to write "The Skye in June." It's a tribute to my mother and five zany sisters. In it I share some of our history as Scottish immigrants and coming of age during the 1960's in San Francisco. It began as a screenplay because that's how it unfolded for me as I saw characters, felt moods and heard their conversations. Especially enjoyable was the sisters' discussions, which at times was rather hilarious. Before putting it on paper, I'd speak aloud each one's words. My husband finally stopped asking if I was talking to him or "the MacDonalds" (or whomever was being created). 
      
Because my protagonist and I share the same first name I've been asked if it's an autobiography. Some situations and events did occur but the majority of the story is my imagination hence a rather thinly veiled autobiography set in a fictional framework. Why did I call my protagonist June? Fact: Against my father's wishes my mother named me June, a name my father declared was a "heathen name" and not a saint's. I don't believe I'll be the first Saint June.

ABOUT ME: June Ahern to date has authored four books; two novels "The Skye in June."and "City of Redemption." and two non-fictions, "How to Talk With Spirits: Seances, Mediums, Ghost Hunts" and "The Timeless Counselor: The Best Guide to a Psychic Reading" which was the best selling book of a new author at the 1991 Whole Life NY Expo. Like her main characters, June was born in Glasgow Scotland before immigrating to San Francisco.

METAPHYSICS & SCIENCE


Do negative thoughts and words poison 

the mind and eat away at the very heart 

of every cell in your body?



According to metaphysicians,  H. Spencer Lewis and Max Heindel ,and  Neuroscientists, Newberg and Waldon, in their 2014,  yes is the answer.


Good News: All of them agree that we can change how we think through positive affirmations and other techniques for changing negative thoughts.



“It is a metaphysical fact that for each minute of time we spend in thoughts of unfavorable impressions, unkind criticism, or hate toward any person, there will be hours of physical and mental suffering as a reaction. …….. Discover what thoughts, attitudes, and conditions of mind you have held or expressed, and immediately eliminate this attitude by reversing your opinions, thoughts, and holding thoughts of love and kindness instead.”- H. Spencer Lewis, the prominent Rosicrucian author, occultist, and mystic, who established the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC in the Americas in the early 20th century.


What do you think about these thoughts and beliefs?

As a psychic/medium for over 45 years I know how much people retain in their minds fears, hopes, past painful memories good times, things that haven't even happened -  leading to ill health, unhappiness and thus negative life experiences. 

I developed a mini workshop in contemplation of this quote - and there's much more in it about what happens to our all over health when thinking and speaking hurtful words, whether that be about the present (a real challenge, isn't it not to?); the future (will we survive this crazy times) and as well as the past hurts - the scenarios played over and over.

The FREE workshop will be held in California USA:  Santa Rosa, April 3rd, 8 p.m.Scottish Rite Center and San Francisco,  April 28, 1:30 p.m. 3rd Ave (entrance) & Irving Street. Please join us. Refreshments too! 


Louise Hay has a lovely set of positive affirmations in her book, "You Can Heal Your Life" and also in small cards, which I continue to use.


I've been a Rosicrucian since 1997, authored four books and taught classes in metaphysical and parapsychology for many since 1980. Please review more about me and my books: www.juneahern.com and my workshop classes www.sfcoaching.com

HOW THE CARDS SPEAK - PART TWO

I was contacted to give an example of how the tarot cards combine with coaching to attain goals, hence part part two of my precious blog.

Major Arcana's 22 cards' images and symbols are studied in depth. Handouts of a short description and an affirmation for each card are provided.

I use the Rider/Waite deck:

0: The Fool starts the journey  (far left): It represents the first breath, prana, spirit awakening to a dream, vision or idea. Creating new karma. All the power that ever was or will be is here now.  Are you foolish to dream you could have that something in your life? Or, as the fools of old by in court, will you amuse the king and queen and be handsomely rewarded for your ingenious, creative acts making  you the winning fool?

Coaching starts with asking:
What do you want differently in your life? What idea or dream do you want to bring into form?



Affirmations support and advance your success.

The Fool: There is nothing to fear. 

Next step #1 The Magician. Short definition: As above so below. As below so above. All magic is in the will to dare. Name your idea:  (I want a new job; I'm ready for a loving relationship. I want to make more money. etc) The tools to build your idea sit before you. Which tool will you choose? (see the table with the sword, cup, pentacle and wand, each has a specific meaning to how we manifest ideas)

Coaching: Will you say yes to manifesting it? What do you need to do that?

Affirmation:  As I say yes to life, life says yes to me.

The High Priestess follows and she is deep in thought of why, how and what is next.

The World is the culmination of the cards' steps.
What do you think that message is? 



Each card truly is a step one takes throughout life when creating and working toward attaining something be that an enfoldment of spiritual awareness, a relationship, job, travel, new home, education etc. 
Review classes at www.sfcoaching.com workshops and my books at www.juneahern.com At sfcoaching, stop by the meditation room. 



TAROT CARDS TO ATTAINMENT. TURNING A DREAM/IDEA TO FULFILLMENT



What you think, so you are. 
What you believe, so is your life experiences. 
So above, so below. So below, so above 
becomes clearer in my study of the tarot cards.

You'd be surprised.

The tarot cards as a means to spiritual awareness and lordly-attainments.

Much more than a divination tool.


Ready to explore and achieve valuable goals?

As I prepare to teach tarot classes in February, I'm digging new adventures and challenges. For 45 years of conducting psychic readings, as a  Life Coach and metaphysical/occult teacher I combine my skills to teach valuable lessons to those who wish to advance in personal awareness and attain goals. 

In 1973 I began my study of the cards and continuing it with studying the Major Arcana  cards with the Kabbalah (Cabbala, Qabbalah) and Jewish Mysticism for greater insights. 

With my dyslexic mind and never thinking of myself as a heady, academic, intelligent being, ladies and gents, the combination study is a true challenge to me. Slowly,  I've gained so much and want to share hence back to teaching.

New adventure: Skype classes with students from four different U.S.A states. In-person happening too in the Bay Area.

 Enjoying learning so much! Do you enjoy learning also?

#1 class of the Tarot + Coaching = Success: a study of life progression through the 22 major arana card's sage advice how to advance self-awareness and attain worldly fulfillment as seen in the symbolic images of each card. 


 #2 combines the minor cards with one's personal year vibration major arcana card to receive greater understanding of how to forward actions to attainment of the goal.

 #3 once a month; study of the four minor suits to forward one's goals. Students have already successfully fulfilled goals or are close to.

STICKS AND STONES - THE POWER OF NAME CALLING



Sticks and bones may break my bones but names will never hurt me.

The little ditty children learn  to ward off feeling badly when attacked by mean name calling.

Mikey's stupid.  Mary's an ugly, fat cow. Bobby's skeely-eyed! Suzy's so skinny she falls through cracks. You're crazy. Belong in a nut house! Tommy's worthless - a sissy, a queer, idiot, good for nothing and on and on. 

Usually an audience of listers chime in becoming a chorus of cruel words. Like real sticks the blows hurt and and humiliate the minds and hearts of the prey.

Unfortunately, those negative words often stay with us into adulthood and can smart just as when we were children.

Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life. Proverbs 4:23 

I'm preparing a lecture  titled,  The Power of Thoughts and Words, with a focus on how our physical bodies suffer from negative thoughts, I'm reminded to watch my words.

Words have  an strong impact upon us as they roll around our brains, taking root, creating beliefs and self-images, life choices (personally and professionally).

Do you find you're your own worst critic?  "I am so fat." "Stupid me!" (when we make a mistake). "I'll never get that job because I'm not good enough, smart enough, etc.)  "I'll never meet the right loving partner because I'm (fill in the blank).  "I'm not worthy to be loved, successful, whatever" etc. etc.

Those messages stuck in the brain's highway of electrical impulses shooting through it - through YOU, through your thoughts ulitamely creating stress and breaking down the physical body; ailments, diseases, pains.

I've been interested in how the brain works since I was a teen. I turn my thoughts inward to watch my brain's activity and feel the energy. Try it, it's amazing.

With the advancement of science in the study of the brain there is documentation through scans and imaging of the brain that words heard and spoken do need "light up" and run through various parts of the brain impacting our thoughts, emotions and physicality. 

A thought enters the brain as an image, a color, symbol and/or sound. You then translate it into language, choosing a word or words to describe what you experience. 

If this doesn't get your thinking and change your mind, what will? 

 Words Can Change Your Brain by Andrew Newberg, M.S. American neuroscientist and Director of Research at the Myrna Brind Center for Integrative Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and Mark Robert Waldman, Executive MBA Faculty at Loyola Marymount University teaching the Neuro Leadership program and author of 14 books   “Words can literary change your brain. Negative words create a traffic jam in the brain. A single negative word can increase the activity in our brain’s fear center. This releases dozens of stress-producing hormones and neurotransmitters, which then interrupts our brain’s function. Angry words send alarm messages through the brain and they partially shut down the logic and reasoning centers locate in the frontal lobes. Conversely, hostile language can disrupt specific genes that play a key part in the production of neurochemicals that protect us from stress.”

Ouch! That caused my thoughts to think of the many years of thinking and speaking and listening to negative, hurtful words.

In the early 20th century Rosicrucian Max Heindel a Christian occultist, astrologer, mystic and author devoted much time and effort to ascertaining the real causes of physical and mental disorders. In his articles titled Occult Principles of Health and Healing, he writes, “In man the brain is the link between the Spirit and the outside world. He can know nothing of the outside world except through the medium of the brain. The sense organs are merely carriers to the brain of impacts from without and the brain is the instrument, which interprets and coordinates those impacts. It is known that thought breaks down and destroys nerve tissues.”

Florence Nightingale, pioneer for nursing, taught that the mental pain of the patient was equal to the physical. "It's a nurse's task to lift the spirits whenever possible."

Enlighten Your Awareness 

Examine your thought and reaction. You might be surprised. Lift your spirits by consciously choosing positive words to feed your brain.

Peace, Love, Joy, Harmony, Kindness, Laughter, Play - repeat daily.

Use positive words. Look for the good. You are a creator of your life and the world's history.
