ARE YOU AN EMPATH?

"Of course I feel too much, I am a universe of exploding stars."
~ S. Ajna

When did you stop trusting your intuition? 

How often have you said, "I knew that, but..." or, "I should've paid attention to my feelings/gut about..."

Happens to most of us at times. We just know, but logic tells us, nah can't be.

Being empathic can be both a blessings and a curse. 

Blessing, you can be a loving healing source. Curse, you take in too much from others.

Often, we empaths screwed up our lives over the pain we feel from others. We take them into ourselves creating another's pain not only mentally but emotionally and psychically and they become us wondering, "Who am I?" 

Losing touch with our true face - true self. The pain sadly often leads to substance abuse just to deal with this world. 

What messages do empaths get as children? 

Have you been told you're too sensitive? A crybaby? Do you need more time alone than most? 

These have been said to me throughout my life.  I used to hid away in closets just to stop the noise of siblings; traffic etc. My family made fun of me.

I wondered what was wrong with me? Am I crazy? As a child I'd see the explosion of Daddy's anger before it happened and trembled, looking for help.

Time had proved to me that yes, I do know things about people without previous info. Yes, dead people talk to me.  I've studying, been mentored, join in with other like minded and thus found healing of self-doubt while realizing my potentials. 

Animals & empathic children more often than not go hand in hand. Why? They depend upon in-tune to feelings to stay safe or be on alert.

Two of my earlier blogs are about kids that are psychic (the rainbow or Indigo kids) available on this blog. Do you recognize yourself and/or your child? (links below might work.)

As adults we put aside "feelings" for logic, reason & practicality and that's not unimportant, it's how we balance the two - intuitive, gut feelings w/reasonable understanding and directions. 

Professionally, I've been a psychic medium and teacher of all involved with that for 45 + years and still I'm learning about how the whole kit and caboodle works - like in the last few years realizing dimensions around us.

Thus, taking an on-line course about Empaths to join with others who are recognizing and growing their intuition.  www.suradevi.com

Maybe I'll "see" you there, eh?

My novel, The Skye in June, the main character is a young girl who is an empaths and beyond that. My books How to Talk With Spirits and The Timeless Counselor include my ESP Quiz. Review at june ahern dot com.

SHENANIGANS: ARE PSYCHIC READERS UP TO IT?

ARE PSYCHIC READERS SCAMMERS?


FALSE PROPHETS?

CONS?

 UP TO SHENANIGAN?

Definition of shenanigan A devious trick used especially for an underhand purpose tricky or questionable practices or conduct —usually used in plurul;  high-spirited or mischievous activity —usually used in plural

Some certainly can be. In every profession there will be those whose purpose is to bilk customers and clients out of every last penny they have, right?

I've met but very few devious readers in this profession, although have had a few clients tell me of their bad experiences. One of my purposes to help the public understand the benefits and the times to choose another advisory professional.

This is why in my eBook, "The Timeless Counselor: The Best Guide to a Successful Psychic Reading" I layout how to spot a phony baloney reader ready to take whatever they can from you by encouraging fear and dependency. 

That said, it's not just in the psychic profession. I've met much more honest, sincere people with strong psychic abilities than those false ones. Unfortunately, even the false ones often have strong intuitive skills and are very good at reading people's body language.

So....how do you cross the palm with coins and feel assured you are with an ethical psychic?

When I was researching various reading styles and readers back in 1989 before I published my book (original title: Professional Psychic Reading as Alternative Counseling, which one the most sold book by an unknown first time author at New York Whole life Expo, '91) I tested a suspicion with a certain group of people who do readings.

It began well with the reader giving some reasonable information and then the bomb went off. I asked her if I could take notes. OH NO! That would disturb her energy; visions. Hmmm Ok.

Suspicion # 1 - why not?

 I just about insist a client record what is said in some way, notes, handheld recorder and the majority of readers I've went to do the same. In fact I record sessions. 

She asked for a question and I told her about the book being written - would it be helpful to those seeking a psychic? Take some of the mystery out of it, said I. She just about repelled from me, dropping my hand, eyes popping in disbelief: "NO! That's not a good idea. We shouldn't give our secrets, our power of how we read away."

Suspicion # 2 - why not?

It's been a mission of mine to encourage through teaching how we all have some kind of intuitive impressions. Often not as someone like myself with high in tune psychic abilities. But then again, we all have unique abilities like say, sewing. I've always been in awe of those who whip up wonderful creations from just a big piece of material.  can only sew buttons on and not necessarily very well. 

In my book I give more examples of how to spot a phony. For example you don't have to pay anyone to light a candle for you; buy one and light it yourself with the intention of positive seeing your future better. Spells - oh! don't get me started on how some so called psychics bilk people out of money and belongs to remove spells.

CHRISTMAS GHOST STORYTELLING w/VIDEO

Did you know Christmas 

ghost story-telling 

is an old custom? 

I didn't. 




When did this custom begin?  

Ghost stories during winter is a hallowed tradition and a folk custom stretching back centuries, when families would gather around fires on winter nights with tales of spooks and monsters. Makes sense on those long, dark, cold nights with no social media or TV.

But all didn't agreed with the custom. Based in folklore and the supernatural, it was a tradition the Puritans frowned on, so it never gained much traction in America and lost interest in England until Victorian 19th century and with some less Puritan Americans.

Humorist Jerome K. Jerome (1891 collection, Told After Supper), wrote, “Nothing satisfies us on Christmas Eve but to hear each other tell authentic anecdotes about spectres (ghosts). … we love to muse upon graves, and dead bodies, and murders, and blood.” 

Charles Dickens claimed in a 1854 article, “Christmas Eve is the witching time for Story-telling.”

Ying Liu (producer The Haunted Bay Paranormal Investigation YouTube) invited me to a Christmas Ghost Story-Telling at a historical Victorian San Francisco hotel. (our investigation YouTube: https://youtu.be/qYPuQylhQsg )

Eager for some merry Christmas fun off I trotted to the hotel for some spooky surprises. Unfortunately, the hotel cannot be named per management because it seems potential guests voice concern their stay will be fraught of ghostly visits. I, for one, love a good ghost story and visit from one or more of the dead. How about you?

The hotel has a rich history of days gone by in the infamous San Francisco. It's is full of wonderfully preserved 19th and early 20th century antiques. 

The shinning wooden staircase captured my heart right away. I could imagine women in long gowns floating down it. In fact, later I did see a woman ghost floating around the hotel.(see in the ghost YouTube investigation.)

I was joined by a couple of other mediums. Independently we investigated the hotel for ghostly activity. Would we find any?

Not surprisingly each encountered the same and also, different spirits as you'll see on the video https://youtu.be/qYPuQylhQsg 

Following the investigation was an impromptu seance (with many spirit messages) and then spooky ghost stories. 

I was all done in and went to my room early- being the the only one to spend the night and live to tell the tale. Was I visited? Yes.

This investigation didn't make it into my book, How to Talk With Spirits: Seances, Mediums, Ghost Hunts, but many other ones have - like working with law enforcement on a murder case.

WINTER SOLSTICE POEM/ GO SKYCLAD

Blessed be High Priestess, Zsuzsanna E. Budapest who rallied and fought bravely for the rights of psychics and pagans to practice without penally of laws and persecution (in some areas). 

To learn more about Ms. Budapest go to: https://www.zbudapest.com

Author, Poet, Psychic, Witch


Tonight look up to the skies, feel the power of the the Full Moon - open your arms, feel the energy  - if you are wiling and are brave in the coldness, go Skyclad. This means naked. You can wear sacred (special) to you jewelry and a cape, if you wish. The ritual begins with preparation: take a bath in rose water, or some oil to calm your mind and body; turn your thoughts inward to your personal power, the truth of you.

Skyclad - nothing between you and the sky, nature. The truth of self. Connection to a Divine Source in the Naked Truth. Not identifying yourself through clothing.  These are some reasons. A Holy Time.

The 2018 Winter Solstice is a powerful one with the full moon and meteor showers. 



LONG DARK NIGHT’S MOON

A view from the moon

The time of the longest nights has come, and 
the Lady of the Night, The Cold White Moon, rules supreme.

She wheels through the heavens above a white world, as if her 
power were transforming the earth into her own image.

Moonlight glitters, from frosted branches, sparkles from fields of new-fallen snow. The air tingles with energy.

Now, in this time of greatest darkness, the Moon is pregnant with light.

The stars dance around her in the heavens, and Earth blossoms with a million points of brightness.

Out of the darkness the new year is born.

So Mote it Be.

 “Grandmother Moon”
Zsuzsanna E. Budapest

LONG DARK NIGHT= FUTURE DREAMS

WINTER SOLSTICE 

THE LONG DARK NIGHT 

 THE RETURN OF THE SUN




Winter Solstice has been celebrated in cultures the world over for thousands of years. This start of the solar year is a celebration of the return of Light (the sun) and the rebirth of the Sun's power to foster life. 

A time to dream and envision of that yet to be. A time to honor the ancestors with stories; a time to tell tales of spirits walking through the darkness. 

Ancient cultures built huge stone structures designed to align perfectly with the sun at specific times, such as dawn or high noon. And some ancient peoples performed sacred rituals and celebrated all night, and I'm sure for days.

How will you celebrate? I've been invited to a "ghost story" time in one of San Francisco's historical Victorian hotels. While there I agreed to be filmed with what spirits or ghosts from yesteryear I might pick up. There will be two other mediums. I'm the only one spending the night at the hotel. Hope to get some sleep between ghost visits.

It just seemed like a fun thing to do, sit around and tell stories. That's what our ancestors did during The Long Dark Nights of winter. Stories of their ancient ancestors, of dreams, and visions of tomorrow - spring time. They hoped for better times. 

Sound familiar? Yes, we too hope for better times during the winter of our own lives. We wish others Happy New Year! 


East to West ancestors celebrated this time of year. Iranian people celebrate the night of the Northern Hemisphere's winter solstice as Yada night. It's one the oldest Iranian traditions that has been present in Persian culture from the ancient years. The pagan Scandinavian and Germanic people of northern Europe celebrated a twelve-day "midwinter" (winter solstice) holiday called Yule (aka Jul, Julblot, from the Norse, Jul, meaning wheel.)

What about your culture? What rituals do you follow?

It's really no mystery or need to be any one religious belief why our ancestors celebrated winter solstice: It began with Nature

Winter: food became and still can be, scarce. Weather conditions plunge into low temperatures, heavy, cold rains; snow; winds -  illness comes easy with runny noses, scratchy throats, pneumonia, influenza and too often death of the old and very young.

Staying alive in a rugged terrain, lack of food, safe shelter, harsh weather - was and is a main concern. I think of "Naked and Afraid" television show. 

Bringing joy during a hard time: Our ancestors had to have hope; they had to belief better times were on the way, just like we do. Thus we celebrate life with sharing laughter, gifts, foods, just being together. And, like us today, it begins with a focus, a purpose - rituals - why we're celebrating - thanking a Divine Source keeping us alive. 

In olden times families and friends would travel often for miles to mingle and be together just as we do today. Gift giving when visiting the homes of others is a custom nearly all enjoy.

Sprucing up: Decorating trees surrounding homes, decorating inside the home became a festive custom. Red, for the energy of the sun, green for mother nature. Life!

How will you give to those in need? That is part of this sacred time's ritual and celebration. Share what you have - thus we have "gift giving." 

With all that said, you understand why Winter Solstice is a most special event. It's about the birth of light, awaiting the birth of the sun. A time to vision what is to come; dreams are vivid as the night's are longer and hope to make it to spring gives life to the mind, body and spirit. 

Tonight, if you can, stay up to greet the sun.

Blessed be.

PREPARATION FOR SPIRIT TALK MAKES A DIFFERENCE



Preparation for spirit communication truly makes a difference

#1. Before you begin to communicate with the spirit of a dead person be honest with knowing you are really ready. Answer: Are you truly prepared emotionally to connect with a dead love one? If you grieving heavily  - crying a lot - you most likely will not find the comfort you seek or even the message clearly.  Have you tried comforting someone who is crying constantly, sobbing? The person doesn't hear words and would do best to be comforted with a hug. Spirit messages are in words so do you think you're ready to listen?

Besides emotionally prepared are you mentally open, willing to experience whatever happens and is said by whichever spirit? Are you physically able to sit comfortably for a least an hour? Yes, it takes patience to await spirit connection. If spirit communication is made in a seance you will be sitting, maybe holding hands for at least an hour.

#2. Before the session prepare through a time to meditate or at least have a  quiet time. Open your mind to the spirit you'd like to communicate with. Mentally see recall - look at their face in your mind's eye the person. Say her or his name. You might want to say the name aloud.  Truth be told whatever spirit really wants to contact you will come through no matter how much you want another. I suggest you write the person's name on a piece of paper and take it with you to the session. You can also take a photograph even if the medium doesn't ask for one you have your loved one in hand (or pocket).

#3. Attitude makes a difference. Keep an open mind. Make it a time of wonderment - I wonder if a spirit will come through. When a person doesn't believe - is negative or disdain about the whole phenom of spirit communicaiton that kind of attitude effects the success of the seance. More in my book about how to sit.

I've witnessed and I'm communicating with spirit and feel that blocked energy have asked the guests "Who is it that really doesn't want to be here?" Often someone talks another (like a partner) into coming along.  When a person admits I ask the person to leave the room.

Be part of the group wholly.

#4. Some people are afraid of "ghosts" -"vampire entities" "evil spirits" will show. Well, a rarity those kind come through, but one never knows. A seasoned and educated medium knows how to prepare and keep out those kinds of spirits. 

If it happens it can be frightening but again, it's a rarity, so trust and relax. 

If you hold fear say a prayer, carry a good luck charm or religious icon. Spirit communication can be very emotional but shouldn't be fearful at all. 

#5. The big hope is you get a message, one you find comforting. Hopefully each guests gets a message but not always. Think of that before you go to the session. How will you feel if you don't get a message? Does it mean your dead loved ones have nothing to say to you? Probably not. They might want to contact you in private. Or, the timing is not right to communicate. Don't despair for a message can come later and perhaps from another source.

#5. Just listen to the message. Don't get into, well, he wasn't like that, she never would...you came, you want a connection. Later you can decide if the message given has meaning to you.  I can't count the many people who have later said, "Oh, I found out you were right" or "now that makes sense to me." Overly questioning can impeded the message.

#6. Thank whomever gave you the message for I'm sure more are to come.

Other useful suggestions how to prepare for a group or solo in my book, How to Talk With Spirits. 

Invite me to talk to your group of interested friends. I do Skype or Soon book events. A good time to ask questions.
