A glimpse into 2014...

Each year, I get many requests for the overall predictions for the upcoming year.  I have to admit that I am never crazy about publishing these.  Some can embrace and adapt to change while others will read the worst into these.   The same as some view our Nation as healing while others tend to fear the end.

Overall, 2014 appears to be the year of “Movement and advancement”.  What I mean by this is that many will advance towards their goals in 2014.  Taking the “Action” needed to get there.  This also appears to be the year of “Material items”.  Many will be making purchases that have been put on hold for the last few years.  Anything from appliances, vehicles, homes and home improvements. 

2014 appears to be “Financially moderate”, meaning that it will be better for most of us.  It does appear to be a year of slow progression.  For those into real estate, this appears to pick up late summer to mid fall of 2014. 

Overall this is a year of high emotions, with many highs and many lows.  (This has to happen to allow “Change” to occur.) This in itself will bring about a lot of restless energy.

Worldwide natural disasters appear to increase in magnitude.  Hurricane season from the Atlantic basin appears to be milder than normal.  I am anticipating problems to occur in California (Anaheim area) as well as Texas, (Dallas area). ( I really do not go too far into this because those that know me well, know how irritated I get that psychics claim to predict hurricanes and tornadoes during hurricane and tornado season!)

Problems with the US Government appear to continue throughout the year of 2014, this will affect many Government programs.  I also anticipate problems for those receiving assistance.  Will there be another Government shut down?  There will be many talks and discussions regarding this matter.  “IF” it occurs, I will describe it as being brief.

One thing that you can definitely count on is an increased military presence here in the US.  The delays that you see at the airlines since 9-11, is just the beginning.  Military presence will be seen in many places that were not seen before.

Mercury Retrograde is always a time frame in the year that you can expect the unexpected.  These are generally emotionally charged and are not the time to begin new projects.  The dates for Retrograde are:
February 6th to February 28th
June 7th to July 1st
October 4th to October 28th
You may also find these dates throughout the year on my website, on the horoscope page, or my Events calendar.

Inspired by Chara out of Mississippi, “Does history repeat itself”.  Yes, I believe it does!
Look for my YouTube clip on 2014 psychic prediction.  A comparison of 2014 to ten years ago in 2004, and 20 years ago in 1994.

Wishing you all a Safe & Happy New Year!

Until next time…

December 2013 "Rants & Raves"

I am sure that most of you are running around getting geared up for the holidays. (For those that are traveling, be safe!)  This year I have opted out of the whole Christmas decorating scene.  With a new baby around there is not a lot of room, besides next year will be more of the time that she will be into the Christmas tree (literally) and into lights.  And yes, I am one of those last minute shoppers, so in other words my shopping will probably begin this week.  This year I have much to be grateful for and looking forward to the holidays!

A Sagittarius, yes, my birthday was on the 12th, and I thank you all for the birthday wishes.  (Remember do not EVER give a psychic your birthday during a reading, because they can tap into your zodiac sign!)  This time of year brings many personable emails from pictures of your Christmas trees, family pets to family recipes.  Just to let you know I read every single one of them and enjoy them all!
The crazy Virginia weather has already bought us some ice, leaving us without power for a few hours.  I imagine that we can expect more of this in the month of January.  Around the same time, I did manage to get out my December Newsletter.  If you wish to be on the mailing list, please email me directly to  I try to get these out each quarter as I believe monthly is excessive.  (And I personally HATE spam!)  Also, if you are not receiving them, and have not opted out, it is because I do not have your current email address!  Please contact me with your new email so I can get you back on the list.
For my Reiki practitioners, if you have not had the opportunity to work on an infant, I highly recommend it.  At 3 weeks old, Jaselyn had her first adjustment and what an amazing experience.  I have never seen charkas so out of alignment before, and I must say that she enjoyed it. 
I have received a couple of emails asking if the ReikiCourse can be purchased as a gift.  The answer to that is yes, as well as gift certificates for psychic readings.  This option is available year around by emailing me directly on my website.  The 12-month forecast is most popular this time of the year.  I would like to remind everyone that these are extensive reports that take me awhile to generate, so please allow 24-48 hours for delivery.
New in December, I have re-established my YouTube channel that was originally set up for me in 2010.  What you can expect is some Vlogs (Video Blogs, some of my psychic babbles, reiki, the paranormal, and a glimpse into my personal life.)  These videos will NOT replace my blog.  (More or less, in addition to.)  So please take the time to stop by and subscribe, as it will send you email notifications when a video is added.  I plan to upload a piece on 2014 astronomy in the next few days.  Also, in the next few days you can look for my blog on “Upcoming in 2014”, for some of next years predictions.

In January, you can look for “The Tarot Card Workshops” to return.  Part II, will be at the local level, so feel free to join us at Central Virginia Psychic Development &Paranormal Research.  For those that missed Part I, Part I will be offered in January online.  (Details coming soon!)
In 2014, I do plan to keep the “Free email follow up” for paid readings for as long as possible, for those that have paid for readings.  This gives a great opportunity for those that may have forgotten to ask a question during your reading.  Your free monthly horoscopes will remain for 2014.  January’s will include a glimpse of your year ahead.
As always, if you encounter any problems on my website, please do not hesitate to email me.  A lot of times, these problems are discovered by you.
I do have plans with family on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  I will be available for psychic readings, but the availability will be sporadic.  I will post the availability on my Twitter feed and Facebook.
What are you New Year’s Resolutions???  Remember the best form of therapy is “Self Improvement” in any form!  From August to the last 2 weeks of December, I have hit my fitness goal.  Therefore I plan to step this up a notch in January!

Upcoming….2014 Predictions
Merry Christmas!

November 2013 "Rants & Raves"

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!  It is amazing how things can change in the small course of 12 months.  Last year for Thanksgiving, I found myself having a complete meltdown when realizing it would be my last Thanksgiving with my mother.  This year I find myself celebrating with my new Granddaughter!

Meet "Jaselyn Cassidy"  born Friday November 22nd at 1:30PM, 6 lbs 2 oz and 19.5 inches long.  Both her and her mother came home this past Monday and both are doing well.  She made it on the first day of Sagittarius, and is a blonde.  (My Mother's side of the family.) Skin tone?  We will have to wait and see.  My Mother's side are all dark complected from a long blood line of Cherokee and Italians.  My daughter however is fair complected and a dirty blonde.  (Though her color changes constantly due to cosmetology.)
Overall she is a really good baby and I could not be happier for both of them!

Prior to Jaselyn's birth, November has been a really busy month for me.  I was delighted to have the Virginia Historical Society contact me to participate in their new documentary "Virginia Voices".  This is currently still in the works and will be released later in 2014.  My daughter and I are currently working on another filming project that we will be able to release more at a later date.

Vlogs?  Video Blogs.... I have been approached by a few as to if this is something I will do.  To be honest, I am considering it.  Possibly the first of the year?  I do have a new computer system with a webcam so it is possible.  By the way, I am new to Windows 8, so if you have any tips or advice to lend, I am certainly open to it as I am a little dumbfounded by this operating system.

November for me has been a month of "Reconnecting".  By that I mean that I have seen family and friends that I have not seen in years!  It has been wonderful!

My new ad campaign launched in the month of November (a little delayed) and is doing well.  (Groupon user's look for me there!) Due to the filming projects and my daughter's pregnancy, my availability has been a little "off" to say the least.  Currently I am back on track and available tonight and through the weekend.  The best time for psychic readings remains 1PM to 1AM Eastern.  For random holiday specials, be sure to follow me on Twitter.  I will be running a normal schedule for the month of December for the exception of a quick day trip to North Carolina that I am most excited about!

Upcoming in December I hope to work in a "Meet & Greet" for Central Virginia Psychic Development & Paranormal Research.  Hopefully I will be able to due this without short notice.  This will be for like-minded people to come together and share what we would like to do in 2014.  I have many inquiries to the Part II, of the Tarot Card Workshop, and as of now, that will take place in late January.

At some point in December I plan to start revamping our website for CVAPI. (Central Virginia Paranormal Investigations).  I am currently seeking a volunteer that is fluent with YouTube in helping me get some of our older case files online.  If you are interested, please email me at

A lot of my month of December is preparing my final accounting for the year, so I will be spending a lot of time in my office.

Be sure to join me on Facebook as I post there often!  I am going to wrap this up with the number #12, handed down from my daughter from a facebook game, of 12 random facts that you may not know about me:

1.  I was a vegetarian for 7 years.
2.  I married in my senior year of high school.  (Married at 18, my daughter at 19, divorced at 20, and built        our home at 21).
3.  "Sasha" is my third husky and 13 1/2 years old.  I also have a soft spot for cats.  (We have two, one
     inside and one outside.)
4.  I rarely drink alcohol and when I do, the "Psychic senses" are more than wide open!
5.  I keep my social circle small because I HATE needless drama.
6.  Though I am a ghost hunter, I do not like closed in places (car window always cracked) and am scared
     of heights and reptiles.  (Yes, I hate frogs and blue tailed lizards may as well be the size of dragons!)
7.  I love to just pick up and "Go".  I am not much of a planner.  (A Sagittarius trait.)
8.  I am really into aromatherapy.   Lavender is my favorite scent and I grow my own.
9.  I LOVE to read and rarely take the time to do so.  I also had trouble learning to read as a child.
10.  I am really not that fond of chocolate and never have been.  (For the exception of chocolate pie!)
11.  I have ALWAYS thought that clowns are just creepy.
12.  I am 100% happy just being me!  :)

If you are traveling for the holidays, please be safe!

Ghost Hunting 101 this Sunday, October 27th

October 2013 "Rants & Raves"

So October is here, and we are under the full moon.  Funny, fall is not my favorite season, but so far I have really enjoyed it.  I have actually enjoyed watching the leaves change and the cool evenings. Besides, this is the month of Halloween, my absolute FAVORITE!

Now for the bad news…. This is just the beginning of Mercury Retrograde.  (October 21st to November 10th).  What can I say about this one?  It is going to be a doozie!  Upcoming projects can prove to be difficult.  Mechanically it will affect things.  But the biggest problem that I can see is the “Emotional Plain”  ahead.  This time frame is REALLY going to bring the emotions out in almost everyone, both good and bad.  This is one of those cases that the only way out is to just get through it.  However, if you are aware of it, it may make things a “Little” easier.

It seems I have been in a complete whirlwind this entire month.  It has been one project after another, including my daughter’s baby shower last weekend.  (That was totally awesome by the way!)  We have just found out that baby Jaselyn is small and breech.  Though she is not due until November 18th, another ultrasound will take place on Halloween.  (Let me know what you think on a due date, I have said all along its November 5th.).

My paranormal team CVAPI, also spent some time filming with our local news station WRIC Channel 8.  (A big thanks to the Byrd Theatre and Wrexham Hall!)  They will begin plugging the story the day before Halloween and it will air in 2 or 3 parts the day, night and evening of Halloween.  I had a really great time working with them.  For those of you out of the area, part of the story will go up on their website and I will post the links.

October is not over yet!  Next Sunday, October 27th at 3PM, you can look for Ghost Hunting 101, here locally in Chester.  (All of the information will be posted tomorrow on CVAPI’s website.)  This is always a big hit, and fills up REALLY quick!  If your local don't forget to join
us at Central Virginia Psychic Development & Paranormal Research. 

What else is coming up?  I have two meetings this coming week for new projects.  Both have to due with the psychic realm and the paranormal field.  I hope to be able to provide updates on this soon.

I’m also in discussions about my next big trip.  It looks like this will occur in the first quarter of the year.  NEW ORLEANS!  I’m so flipping excited about this I can’t stand it!  This has been on my list of places to visit for years!

Part of my month has also consisted of hiring a new CPA (as mine of many years retired).  And, setting up a new computer system.  Yes, after many years of being in business I am amazed at how things have expanded.  Though I started working part time as a psychic to the public in 2001, my website launched as a three page site in 2006.

I have also taken some “Still time” to reflect upon some things.  As in “where you were then and where you are now”.  (I recommend this to everyone by the way.)  Last October, was the beginning of the deterioration of my Mother’s health with breast cancer and two broken feet.  That seemed to set the pace for four of the worst months I think I have had in my entire life.  Looking back I am so glad that is behind me now! I am in a wonderful spot right now and continuing to move forward.

As of now, I am playing the month of November by ear.  As I mentioned above, I have new projects that are in the making, family coming in from Florida, a baby arriving, a follow up to Tarot Card Workshop, and paranormal investigations.  A quick trip upcoming?  It appears so!

When is the best time to get a psychic reading?  Two to two….2PM EST to 2AM EST.  Psychic readings still come before everything else.  Follow me on Facebook or Twitter for when I am available at the local level and any upcoming specials.  On that note, regarding the social networks….  I get a TREMENDOUS amount of emails on all of them.  In the event that you have not heard back from me PLEASE email me directly at  I don’t intentionally avoid anyone, but sometimes emails are overlooked on the networks!


Until next time….HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

September 2013 "Rants & Raves"

I have been so busy working on varying projects that I am actually patting myself on the back for remembering to update my blog this month. J
I have lots of cool things to discuss while I am sitting here drinking “Candy Corn Coffee” (compliments of my daughter and its delicious!) 

I will start with an update on “Baby J”.  Jaselyn is due November 18th (A Scorpio).  I have finally finished their room!  If you know me personally than you know I LOVE animal prints with leopard being my favorite.  It was just perfect when we came across the pink leopard print pattern!  The bedding is compliments of our family in Georgia.  My daughter is doing well (and getting bigger each week) and now visits the doctor every two weeks.   I am currently working on her baby shower plans for next month.

I have also spent a lot of time seeking the “Perfect cell phone case”. (I prefer the blinged out ones, but they get hung up in my hair.)  I have finally updated my cell phone and no longer in the stone ages!  I love the fact that my entire business is with me now all the time.  The next upgrade will be a computer.

I have spent the past week in negotiations with a company for a new advertising campaign in the month of October.  Right now this is geared towards the Richmond Market, which is something I have not tried in the past.  I do have the option to run this in other markets across the country, so I will see how well it does.

In the process of working on this advertising campaign, I have successfully crashed my main computer that runs all of my websites.  You may have noticed a couple of glitches in my website in the past week.  As of now, all appears to be well.  However, if you do find a problem PLEASE email me at  Most problems are not found until someone reports them to me.

Saturday September 21st at 4PM, I am offering my “Tarot Card Workshop” at the local level.  Information can be found on my website.  These are a lot of fun and a LOT of information will be packed into that session.  Drinks and snacks will be provided and it will end with a free Group Gallery Reading for those that participate.  Be sure to reserve your spot asap.  (This is also available online or as private sessions.)

October is just around the corner.  Currently I am setting up for “Ghost Hunting 101”, which is ALWAYS a full house and a crowd pleaser.  Keep your eye on my paranormal website for the date and time.

I have had a lot of compliments to adding my Twitter feed onto the website.  I am still a little new to “Tweeting” but am trying to use this to update you on my availability for readings.

I have had a couple of people wanting to know if I will do any Reiki Certifications at the local level.  I am trying to work this in prior to the holidays, but no promises.

I have a lot of clients that follow me on Twitter, and Facebook.  If you really need to speak to me and message me on these services, please do not feel offended if I do not reply.  The emails on the social sites can tend to be a little overwhelming.  The best way to contact me is directly through my website.

Remember, the best time to catch me for Psychic Readings are between 1PM and 1AM.

On a personal note, Monday will begin Week #6 of a 12-week fitness challenge for me.  To be honest????  I am loving it!  (Yep, shocked me too!)  I am finally seeing results and am actually thinking about pushing it beyond 12 weeks.

Don’t forget that I am always looking for stories for my Examiner column.  Fall and winter months are my favorite times to spend writing.  If you have an idea you would like to run by me, please feel free to shot me an email at

Until next time…

August 2013 "Rants & Raves"

August has been an incredibly busy month for me, and like the other months it appears to be going by way too fast.  The first part of the month my daughter and I returned from Georgia from vacation and visiting family and friends.  It is hard to believe that this was our last “Mother-Daughter” vacation before her baby arrives.  Today is the beginning of her third trimester so it won’t be long now!  I spent this past weekend painting their bedroom, and will soon be organizing her baby shower.
Also on the personal note, I have abruptly ended a relationship that should have ended months ago, so “Single again”.  I have chalked it up to a life lesson and honestly feel that a weight has been lifted from my shoulders and I am looking forward to new possibilities.
I did manage to add a new feature to my website this month, and that is it now shows my Twitter feed.  I am hoping to use this to update clients on my availability.  Though I have had a Twitter account for a while, I don’t use it often, so bare with my while I get into the swing of things.
I had the pleasure of meeting a client from Michigan this month and her friends here in Richmond.  I don’t get to do group readings too often and I enjoyed this one tremendously!  If you’re in the Richmond, Tri-Cities area, email me for more information on group readings.
August also finds me setting up for the next “Tarot Card Workshop”  that will be upcoming in September and “Ghost Hunting 101” in October.  I plan to release the dates on both in the next week or so.  As of now it appears that CVAPI will be hosting an event in North Carolina in October, more information on this soon!
Mid August kicked off a 12-week fitness challenge for me with today being the start of week number 3.  No gym and no supplements, and honestly it has definitely been a challenge!  The good news is that I am more than pleased with the first two weeks results and am pushing forward with this adventure.  And YES, I do use Reiki for this as well! (Something to ease the body aches.)\

This month’s photo is of “Tiki”.  She is the latest addition to my family.  She appeared as a wild cat that would sleep on our Tiki Tavern on the patio.  (Hence the name Tiki).  She has been here since June and just last week, has finally allowed us to pet her.  I find it funny that she also matches our other two animals in the house.  (As well as being demanding as them at dinnertime!)  She fits right in.
The last 6 weeks I have found that I need to slow down and listen to my own advice.  It appears lately that I have gotten out of the habit of this.  Though I don’t read very well for myself, I seem to have ignored some things that were upcoming that I knew about.  No more of this!  I have spent the last few days on grounding myself and restoring a much-needed balance.   I could not feel better! 
Though spring and summer have always been my favorite months, I find myself looking forward to fall this year.  I am looking forward to the leaves changing, some cooler temperatures, Halloween, and of course the arrival of “Baby J”.
Visit my website for psychic readings and more.  Until next time...

June and July 2013 "Rants & Raves"

Well once again I have let the entire month of June slip by me.  I need to get into the habit of when I remind myself to update the blog, to actually stop what I am doing and do so!  June seems like it went by really quick.  Although spring and summer are my favorite months, they tend to go by very quickly. Central Virginia Paranormal Investigations  (CVAPI) wrapped up another interesting case at the beginning of June.  Currently we are trying to get that website updated.
The last few weeks I have enjoyed hearing your stories about Reiki.  Those that have found what it really works well as well as the students that I currently have, and their stories about working on family and friends. ( I am currently due for a session on myself as we speak!)
From June 26th on up until July 20th, we fall under Mercury Retrograde.  What does this mean to you?  It is not the time to sign contracts or begin anything new.  This is a time frame were most will experience a high level of anxiety.  It is also the time frame to which you can expect the unexpected.  This particular retrograde has seemed to hit the "Family" zone pretty hard.  There are a lot of you that appear to be struggling with some type of family issue at this time.  Avoid the negativity as much as possible!  If you are the one feeling negative, then its time to fall down and regroup.  Though Retrograde ends on July 20th, it is common for the after effects to linger around for a couple of days.

Now, for a picture of July's exciting news:

"Meet Jaselyn Cassidy"
I usually hate ultrasound pictures but this one came out really clear.  "Jaselyn Cassidy" is a baby girl, and my grand-baby!  She will arrive in November.  She was very active during her ultrasound and likes to play with her hands.  Maybe a musician or a gymnast? 
My daughter and I are hoping to take a little time off to visit some family at the Georgia/Tennessee line while she can still travel soon.

Now onto some of the Q & A's:
How many readings do you do in a day?
Honestly it depends a lot on my availability.  Like any business some days are busier than others.  I also keep odd hours for my clients in the UK.
How do I get an email reading?
For any type of psychic reading visit my website.  Under the section of psychic readings you will find several options.  Some prefer to call now, others by appointment.  Email readings are always a popular option for privacy regarding spouses or while at work.  They are generally answered within 24 hours.
Will you ever be in my area?
It depends on your location.  Send me an email to
How do I become a member of your paranormal team?
Members and those selected for investigations come from our local Meetup group.  For those interested in ghost hunting in general, stay in touch with me as Ghost Hunting 101 is coming up!
Do you ever get burnt out on readings?
Like anything I guess sometimes I do.  I can only read but for so many before I have to take a break or a little time off.
Can I use one of your past articles?
I have no problem with this as long as you ask me first.  Currently I still publish at Examiner and a couple of other sites.  I own copyright on most of them, but some I have sold the copyright, so just ask so I can verify where it has been published!

My summer newsletter will go out soon!  If you wish to be added to the mailing list send me an email to  Until next time...

May 2013 "Rants and Raves"

Wow, the year is REALLY flying by.  I find it hard to believe that we are quickly approaching the half way mark to the year!
I hope all of the Mother’s out there had a fantastic Mother’s Day.  This was the first Mother’s Day for me without my Mom.  However, my daughter and my boyfriend helped me get through it by making the day special.  Her birthday is also at the end of this month, so Happy Birthday to all of you Gemini’s out there!
The Distant Learning Course for Reiki is taking off and I am truly enjoying my students.  I love hearing what works for them and what doesn’t.  Everyone appears to be having a lot of fun with it and I have been able to keep the price of the course at $99.  Reiki for me remains the number one way to relax.  Do NOT let the "Chakras" overwhelm you, they are not hard to learn and once you do, you will never forget them.
I did have some issues with the main psychic line last week.  This problem appears to have been fixed and I am back up as normal.  The best times to reach me are between 1PM and 1AM Eastern.  Although I am available at varying times that is your best bet to make sure you get me.
My number one hobby is anything paranormal.  So I am excited that I will be out on an investigation late Saturday evening with CVAPI.  Also, I am seeking stories about the paranormal for my Examiner column; so if you have one to share, email me at with your contact information.  (You do NOT have to be local!)
I am looking at setting up a local “Meet & Greet” for the members of Central Virginia Psychic Development & ParanormalResearch.  So keep your eyes open for the date.
For my dedicated blog followers:
May special from today May 23rd to May 31st.  Psychic readings $99 an hour by appointment only.  Email
Ghost Hunting 101 coming up in June, check back for details!  Join me on Facebook.

Spring and summer...

"Transitions and Challenges", now let me explain:

This year, spring brings about "Transitions".  Changes in all areas, unfortunately, sometimes unexpected.  This is the time that we must remember the cliche' of "Change is good".  Changes occur when needed.  Although we may not LIKE change, or feel that there was no need for change, they DO happen for a reason.

How should you react when these changes occur?  Embrace them.  Good or bad.  They are occurring to allow for something new to come in.  Wanted or not, you should not try to stop them!

Where the spring months are all about bringing in "Transitions", this is leading up to what is in store for the summer months.  Now, PLEASE do not view this as negative when I say the summer months will present us with "Challenges".  Though that word itself may be a little unsettling  it is not always as bad as your fears.

These challenges are actually deemed as positive!  For example, they are changes that you thought you would not be able to make happen, but they do happen.  Challenging?  Meaning well deserved or you worked hard for those results!

To those that are a little sensitive, you may be able to sense that "Change" is in the air.  Part of this feeling you can credit to the crazy moon phases that we have seen so far.  We are now out of one of the roughest Mercury Retrogrades that I have seen in a long time.  THURSDAY APRIL 25th, we will all embrace what is known as the "PINK MOON".  (Unfortunately you will not see this from the United States.)  This simply means that the moon turns full under a lunar eclipse.  This will actually send out a strong wave of positive energy!

April 2013 "Rants & Raves"

     Yes, it does appear that I missed posting the "Rants & Raves" in the month of March!  If you follow my blog, you will notice that I quit smoking on March 1st.  YAY ME!  For those that smoke, I hope you will take the time to read that blog, because it REALLY was not as bad as I thought it would be.  I also had friends come in from New Jersey for a visit.
     As I am lining up the month of April, it looks like my schedule for psychic readings is now back on track.  I hope to schedule some time to get some updates up on my website soon.  One thing that you will notice is that the link to the Body Wraps has disappeared.  You can still find this product here.  With revamping my schedule, I have decided to let this go as a distributor, though I still use their products.  Since I have quit smoking I have started a new workout routine, so in a few weeks I will update you and let you know how that is going.  (YES, I have quit smoking and loosing weight at the same time!)
     In other news, I am super excited to announce that my daughter is expecting and due in November!  I think at this point I will have to set up something for those that are guessing if it will be a boy or girl!  (My weakness in psychic abilities is determining the sex of an unborn child!)
    In April I am also excited to work with a local college student in her studies of psychic abilities and the paranormal.  It appears that we will be spending some time together getting that college paper ready!
    Monday night April 29th, I am live on the radio at KTKK AM630 Salt Lake City Utah for the Fringe Show.  The call in number to the show is 801-254-5855, and I will get more information up on this as the time draws near.
    I hope to get my spring newsletter out in the next week or so.  If you wish to join the mailing list, please send me an email to  Until next time!

The "Mental" side to smoking

So, this is Day #26 for me and not smoking!  The first thing you will want to do is buy this book. (Under $10 at Amazon).  A friend gave it to me and you can read it while your still smoking.  It will talk about all of your excuses and how if you use willpower alone, you are setting yourself up for failure.  It will also spend a lot of time talking about becoming FREE.  As in free from nicotine.  (As well as talking about the fact that you will also find financial freedom which is not a bad thing!)

I was at a pack and a half a day until my mom got sick.  Then I went to two packs a day. 

This means that your ENTIRE day revolves around a cigarette.  When will you run out?  When will you need to go to the store?  Do you have enough money for your cigarettes?  Do they have a smoking area?  How long until you get a smoke break?  Can you smoke in their car?  The last cigarette for the evening….and then the cycle starts over.

In reality, it only takes 3 days to break your nicotine addiction.  After that, it is all mental.  The number one rule is IT IS NOT OKAY TO HAVE JUST ONE!  Why?  Because it is an addiction!  The same as an alcoholic cannot just “Have one” drink.

So lets talk about the excuses:

I enjoy smoking.  No you don’t.  No one likes standing out in the weather to have a cigarette.  After a few hours without one, they taste like crap and they stink!  No one enjoys spending his or her money on cigarettes.

I would quit but I’m scared I will gain weight.  (By the way, I think this is the WORST excuse ever.)  So this means as a smoker, you are currently at your “Ideal” weight and would not change a thing.  (Didn’t think so!)

I will quit when I loose weight.  If you haven’t done so by now, you’re not going to and your kidding yourself.

It is the only bad habit that I have.  Okay.  Wouldn’t you rather have a “Good” habit?

I am too stressed out right now.  In reality smoking does not “Calm” your nerves, you have brainwashed yourself into thinking it does.  In actuality it raises your blood pressure.

I will quit right after….  Obviously you will not, lol.

In all honesty I have quit twice before.  Once with Chantix, it was okay, but I still had the “Urge” for a cigarette.  Then I quit on the gum, and it was the same way the urge was still there.

This time I have quit on the patch.  (Doing the steps!)  For the “Mental” of what to do with my hands, I have an electric cigarette.  (Careful, several of them have nicotine, get the one that has blanks, or you will overdose with the patch!)  The electric cigarette, takes the pressure off when I’m driving or join my friends in the smoking area.  Oh yeah, get rid of EVERYTHING!  Cigarette case, lighters, and ashtrays!  (Remaining butts too, no dumpster diving!)  The patch REALLY takes the edge off, I can tell the very hour it runs out.  Yes, you are getting a small release of nicotine (Starting with 21mg, then 14mg, then 7mg, then nothing.)  But you are not getting anything else associated with smoking. 

The do not’s:

DO NOT stay away from smokers!  You need to learn to deal with it.  Smoke your electric cigarette, and when you find you would like to have one, or think you miss the smell, remind yourself YOU ARE FREE, they are not.

DO NOT think you can only have one.

DO NOT use willpower alone.  When you have the urge, set back and actually THINK about the excuses above.  Count how long you have been without one.  First the hours and then the days!

DO NOT let people bother you.  If they pick on you and offer you one, remember THEY are the addicts, NOT you.

Now onto what I have noticed in 26 days:

My energy level is through the roof!  (Started around Day 5).  This is turn had me start a new workout program.  (So yes, I am smoke free AND loosing weight!)  I sleep better.  I can take a deep breath like I never could before.  I am starting to notice the smell of smoke on everything.  And it felt really great to fill out the forms at the dentist office as a non-smoker!

So what are you waiting on?  Set your quit date and stick with it!  Some thought my quit date was “Too soon” after my Mother’s death.  Some thought I would change the date because I was on vacation when it hit.  Bottom line, once the date was set, I stuck with it!

So when is your date????

February 2013 "Rants and Raves"

I am happy to report that I am actually writing this blog from the state of Georgia.  I have spent the past week working from the Tennessee/Georgia line and have had a blast!  A change of scenery is just what I needed!
I am back up to a normal schedule for psychic readings and Reiki.  I will slowly begin to catch up with CVAPI and Central VA Psychic Development & Paranormal Research. I am REALLY excited to see that spring will hit March 20th!
We are currently under mercury retrograde and this one seems to be hitting pretty hard.  It is normal to feel emotional or full of anxiety at this time.  I have seen a lot of this going around this week.
New for the month of March and April, it looks like I will be able to offer live in person readings to some in the Virginia Beach area, Chesapeake VA, Williamsburg VA and a couple of towns in North Carolina.  If you are in those areas, please send me an email at as the schedule is now underway.
I am playing catch up on emails and some things that I have put off in the last few weeks.  If time permits I hope to be able to host another open house soon.
Thank you all for your condolences and your patience, while I get my office back on track.  HAPPY SPRING EVERYONE!  Until next time...

Random Availability...

It is with a heavy heart that I announce that my Mom lost her battle with breast cancer this week on Valentine's Day.  With that said, my availability for the next few days will remain sporadic.
  I do so appreciate everyone's kind words, prayers and support.  I cannot express what it has meant to me and my daughter.  When I am available it is a welcomed distraction as she was my number one fan, and supported my work 100%, and I LOVE what I do.  I plan to resume a regular schedule in a few days.
The out pour of condolences, has been greater than what I would have EVER dreamed of.  I would also like to mention a special  "Thank you" for the support from the paranormal communities across the board.
Please know that I have personally read every single email, text message and voice mail that you have left and accept my THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.  There is no way I could ever begin to reply to everyone personally.

Some advice for Valentine's Day

With Valentine's Day approaching tomorrow, I am seeing anxiety levels begin to rise.  So I thought I would take a look at this from some different angles...(This applies to both male and females!)
Lets start with those who are single.  Why are you stressing over this?  I find it perfectly normal for those that are single to show some anxiety on Valentine's day.  Possibly because you are feeling vulnerable or it is the one day of the year that you feel alone.  There is the is ONE day of the year!

 So for all of you single folks out there lets go over the do's and don'ts:
Treat yourself.  This can be by going out with friends, picking up something you have been wanting, or expanding your horizons into meeting new people.
Pick up the phone and call an ex!  Remember, they are in your past for a REASON.  There is no need to reopen that can of worms!
This is one day of the year and you WILL survive!  If you find yourself sitting around feeling lonely, remember this.  "If you CANNOT be happy with yourself, you will NEVER make someone else happy".

Now lets move on to those that are seeing someone or are currently in a fairly new relationship.  First and foremost, let your anxiety go!  Here is where I see a lot of anticipation on what the other person expects.  Let go and have fun.
Recognize that special someone as your Valentine.  This has nothing to do with money and the simple things in life will score you BIG brownie points.  It is not always about the gift.
Play Valentine's Day down.  It IS a big deal.
Valentine's Day is the perfect "Excuse" to take things to the next level.  This does not have to be an engagement.  A simple commitment or taking the time in expressing what you feel will go a long way.

Finally on to those that are involved in a long term relationship.  Yes, you still have to recognize Valentine's Day!  Though you may have the perfect relationship, it is still important to remind them how important they are to you.
Apply every effort to do something special, even if you have been together for twenty years.  It is always nice to hear that you still care.
Blow it off.  Even if you are in a holding pattern of not celebrating Valentine's Day, break that routine!
You may feel that you already have them, but NEVER forget how important it is to KEEP them!

Until next time...

January 2013 "Rants & Raves"

And once again, it looks like I am a day late getting to this, lol. Hang in there with me as it has been a crazy month.  This months topic is on my Mom and Reiki.  (Pictured below, my Mom and my daughter.)

This month has revolved around my Mom who is in the final stages of breast cancer.  We had a wonderful time over the holidays and unfortunately she took a turn for the worst on January 4th.  Now that we are at February 1st we are down to days if not hours.  I can say that she is at peace and my family is doing well.  Although we knew this was the path we were on, it is much harder now that the time is here.  Your emails of your stories, prayers and encouragement have been a LOT of my support.

Another topic I wanted to discuss was "Reiki", and for those that are not familiar with it, it is also known as the "Healing Touch", or simply energy healing.  Cancer patients are fond of this, or anyone seeking pain releif.  I have told some of my current Reiki students that I would go a little further with this here in my blog.

My Mom has always been my number one fan in anything I do.  (Yep a little biased!)  She is the one that encouraged me learning Reiki to begin with.  She has always been very big into meditation, relaxation, reflexology and aromatherapy.  With her encouragement, I became a Reiki Master.  (Meaning that I am at the teaching level to certify others.)  She has always been supportive and LOVED learning about the chakras  (Your energy fields).  She was also a willing participant in my learning days as someone to practice on.

In giving a Reiki session, I personally experience many things as a practitioner.  Sometimes my hands may tingle or one become hot or cold.  The "alignment" of what I can see on someones chakras vary by many.  To the person receiving Reiki their experiences tend to be the same and its not uncommon to have no experience.

Summer before last, my  Mom had quit a stressful job, and asked that I come over one afternoon for a Reiki session.  Her session went well, although my right hand was very hot and hot to her touch around her chest.  It was approximately a month later that a knot surfaced on her breast to which she did not have checked out right away, or tell anyone about.  When she did we learned that she was in the late stages of breast cancer, and oddly enough it was on the exterior.  For a long time, I carried a guilt of that Reiki session until I spoke with one of her doctors at Massey Cancer Center. To my surprise, I learned that he was also a Reiki Master.  It was nice to be reminded that Reiki enters the body for the "Greater Good" and is to push anything foreign out in aligning the chakras.  So did the Reiki session push the tumor out?  We don't know, but we do know because it was exterior it was found.  I have also learned that it has been very common for odd things to heal on someone that I had no prior knowledge of.  Reiki certainly won't heal cancer, but it does play a significant role in their pain management, and I was surprised to learn how many publications this was mentioned in at the cancer center.

My Mom has continued to receive those Reiki sessions running with her latest one being the day before yesterday.  Throughout her cancer, I can say her sessions have been normal but the heart chakra has always been "Over inflated".  Two weeks ago, as things got really bad, I did a Reiki session on her, and found comfort and new meanings to the words "Surrounded by the white light" as she certainly was.  Her chakras were barely visible due to that surrounding.  The day before yesterday, she requested a Reiki session as the pain was unbearable and the medication was no longer working.  The best I could describe this is all of her chakras were there, but paper thin, she is still surrounded by the white light and the heart chakra is still inflated.  A few hours after her session she went to sleep.  As of now, she is still asleep.  And for me?  I have NO regrets.

For those that have a story to share or experience, please feel free to do so.  For those that are seeking more information in learning Reiki or wondering if it is right for you, please email me at  The Reiki Course will remain at a reduced rate, as long as I do not become overwhelmed with students.  I have since established a Facebook page just for Reiki so feel free to join me there!

New Year's Specials

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!  I wanted to drop a couple of lines about the New Year's Specials.
The first week of the year, it appears that everyone is seeking a reading for what 2013 will hold for them.  You will notice that I am currently running a special for those New Year readings on my website.  The main phone line system is setup for a flat $75 for 45 minutes.  (It will give us a 2-minute warning near the end of the call before it cuts us off.)  This rate will be in effect up through Sunday January 6th.  This gives you a reduced rate and a little extra time to cover all areas of your life for the upcoming year.

Next, "Distant Learning: Reiki Master Course, handbook and certification", this course will stay at $99 for a limited time only.  As much as I would like to commit to this rate for the entire year, I will have to play it by ear if I am able to do so.  I work one on one with my students learning Reiki.  Since it is a "learn at your own speed" course, I do not tend to get backed up on students.  However, if I find the reduced rate will present a problem I will be forced to make adjustments as I make sure that all of those learning Reiki get my undivided attention.

New Year's Resolution's anyone?  Post them here or email me, I would love to hear them.  Until next time...
