It’s been six months since we went on lockdown because of Covid-19 and it literally has changed everything and…not. Let me explain, in the beginning I was listening to the news, watching the Covid maps and paying attention to the numbers but about a few months in I FELT like I was not getting a perspective on Covid that was based on truth…The reason why I capitalized FELT is because this is the basis of our intuition and our intuition never steers us wrong. Unfortunately in our culture in the USA, we are not taught to listen to our feelings and told to focus on thought analysis instead. In my opinion, this disconnects us from our feelings and intuition which directly connects us to our higher selves. As a result of feeling like I was being lied to, I unsubscribed to the news outlets, stopped listening to the news and disconnected to what I call the Beast of Fear because I no longer wanted to feed it. Now things seem more normal to me, of course I know that things have changed, but it doesn’t really affect me until I have to go shopping and wear a mask and I avoid that a lot.
I was reflecting on Covid and what it means big picture wise—I always think and reflect in this way. It makes sense that one of my power animals is hawk, because hawk requires me to rise above the details and look at the big picture. I often think about my ancestors and the struggles that they went through to survive and there were many. My maternal grandmother was an orphan in the Philippines and she lost her entire family to the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918. She married young, at the age of 16, and I assume it was because she literally had no one left to take care of her. I understand that this fear or trauma can be passed down to future generations down to me. I am happy to say that I have not allowed Covid-19 to trigger a fear within me that may have come from my grandmother’s experience (her fear was extremely valid of course). This is part of why I am here is to break unhealthy ancestral patterns, including traumatic ones.
Furthermore, I performed a meditation to connect with my ancestors. I saw them all lined up in rows, almost a starburst pattern and I was in the center. My maternal grandparents were standing there smiling at me and grandfather took my hands in his and said, “Tina, we gave you the very worst familial patterns to heal.” He looked at me with great compassion. I nodded my head, knowing what all this has meant so far and still what I must do.
Perhaps there’s a pattern in your family that you want to heal, whether it’s addiction, depression, anxiety, mental illness or even a pattern like giving up on one’s health because life is simply too hard. Maybe you are already aware of it or maybe after some reflection, you suddenly identify it. You are not stuck with this pattern…and your will and intention to change it is the fuel to change that unhealthy familial pattern, backwards into the past and forwards into the future. Energy healing such as Reiki, Intuitive counseling and communicating with your ancestors via mediumship can and will help you heal it. Contact me if you are interesting in this type of healing or desire more guidance and information on healing unhealthy familial patterns.
When I first started practicing Reiki in 2014, I came upon the practice of removing energetic cords. These cords can come from either a living person or a spirit and attach to people in order to siphon their energy from others. After practicing Reiki for a while, I started to actually see these cords attached to a person’s energetic field or aura. I would ask my spirit guides and angels to show me the cords that were not attached for that person’s highest good and then cut and remove them.
Energetic cords can drain someone of their energy or even cause physical ailments or pain. They can be attached to you by former significant others, family members or even a stranger you encountered.
A spirit attachment is similar to an energetic cord but more encompassing. I don’t see cords attached, I simply sense another presence around that person that doesn’t appear or feel benevolent. They can be near that person or actually leave when an energy healer comes near the client so they are not discovered. This happens to me a lot so I have to be really diligent in discovering the spirit attachment.
After using these techniques for years as well as during property clearings, I have come to the conclusion that spirit attachments are a lot more common than I realized or wanted to admit. I have done property clearings where the paranormal activity returned once I cleared it. So it made wonder, what am I missing?
I realized that the person could be haunted and not the property. That means no matter where a person lives, they are going to feel like someone is watching them and they are going to have uncomfortable feelings. They are going to experience paranormal activity because it’s literally following them everywhere they go. This person more than likely has one or more spirit attachments and they need to be removed.
Sometimes it takes me a while to discover this but eventually I can not be fooled. There are two cases I would like to go into detail with this, one is professional and the other is personal. I have a recent Reiki client who came to me to experience more relaxation and de-stressing in her life. She was and is opening up to the world of energy now. She suffered from acid reflux and she would often feel discomfort when I focused Reiki on her throat. I thought that the Reiki was clearing her throat chakra. At her 4th appointment with me, she said the following words which alarmed me, “I feel like someone is choking me.” I knew that at this point I had to figure out the cause of this.
As I kept my hands hovered over her throat and asked my angels and guides,”Why does she feel like someone is choking her?” Over the years I have learned the more specific my question, the more likely I will receive a specific answer. Suddenly I sensed another presence in the room, toward my client’s feet and to the right. I could see it was a male with blonde hair and there was a lot of negativity coming from him. With my intuitive senses I got the following: he was her husband in another life, he used to abuse her including choking her and he told me he wasn’t happy that she recently got married. I told him that he had to release her and go into the light. No matter how angry a spirit is I have several ways to convince a wayward spirit to journey home. Eventually he did leave willingly although not happily.
After the session I told her what I discovered. She was so relieved. She already looked like a different and more peaceful person.
My personal example has to do with one of my daughters who is a teenager. Since the quarantine I noticed that my teen daughter seemed very negative. Normally she’s sweet and goofy but I hadn’t seen that girl in awhile. I thought she was adjusting to being at home and was unhappy that she couldn’t see her friends. I would walk by her while she was playing video games and she wouldn’t even say hello. This was very unlike her.
When I was away at the beach I came to the realization that she may have several spiritual attachments. Teens can be interesting cases because they have powerful emotions and those negative emotions can attract low vibration spirits to them. These spirits actually feed on their emotions like food. It then becomes a self-fulfilling cycle, the teen feels negatively, the spirit feeds off of it and encourages the teen to feel more negative emotions. Thankfully there is a remedy to this: recognize the spirit is there and send it or convince it to go into the light.
Sometimes these spirits are quite egotistical. You can imagine that they can easily manipulate humans into doing and feeling what they want. Teens and children are especially vulnerable. When I focused on my daughter and spoke with her on the soul level she was quite upset about these spirt attachments. I knew that they were negatively influencing her. They also were quite cocky about it and one bragged to me, “It took you long enough to figure out we were here.” I easily sent them on their way to the light. When I returned home with my youngest daughter, we both asked my teen if she was feeling better. We didn’t tell her why we were asking this till later, we wanted her to tell us herself. She kind of waffled and said, “I guess so.” But I could already tell she seemed lighter and happier.
I am happy to say that my old teen is back and she’s being affectionate and sweet again. My youngest daughter noticed right away exclaiming, “She already looks different.”
After an individual energy cleaning, what if the paranormal activity doesn’t go away? The problem might be your home or property. In that case, I would recommend a property clearing and blessing.
If you suspect that you or your family member might have a spirit attachment, contact me and we will discuss your situation. This can be done in person or remotely. You can book a clearing session with me here.
Wow just wow right?
It's hard to put into words right now what's happening in the world today. However, I encourage all of you the rise above the details of what's going on and look at the big picture. If you are interested in animal medicine, invoking the hawk or any predatory bird would be wonderful right now.
I am familiar with hawk because he's been my power animal for years now.
First of all please be safe and practice social distancing and limit your trips to the store. Practice handwashing and good hygienic habits to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
That being said, I have been getting messages for years that something big was going to happen in the world and I believe this is it. All I knew was something was going to really rock us all, and that lightworkers like myself would have to be a source of calm for others. Lightworkers and energy healers are qualified to do this because 1) we have been working on ourselves for years and can relate to the stress that people are feeling 2) we are empaths and we feel others' feelings so we know and sympathize with people who are struggling 3) we have adapted and practiced how to manage how our empathic abilities and continue to address and heal our triggers and emotions when they blindside us and 4) we are knowledgeable and understand that the universe works in mysterious ways and that it helps us to rise above like the hawk and see the big picture.
What is the big picture?
We have an unsustainable lifestyle that hurts the Earth and all the living beings on it.
We have a culture that is driven by money and economics that does not equitably share resources where the few have many and the rest can barely scrape by.
Our culture of busyness reached a crescendo point where most people couldn't keep up, were really stressed out and didn't have time to even take a breath and enjoy the pleasures in life.
Our economic structure was still old school, requiring people to commute to work even though we have the technology for many to work from home.
Our government did not prepare long term for a pandemic like this, even though they were warned about it.
Our health system can not handle a pandemic like this because we lack universal healthcare in the country although most countries in the world already have such a system and it works.
And I could go on.
How to Make the Most of Your Free Time Now
I have been trying to stay productive and tackle some projects that I didn't have time for before. So far I have:
And that was just in the first week!
I have plans for more projects like,
And I am sure I will come up with more.
But make sure you do fun stuff too. So far I have played several scrabble games with my daughters, took many bike rides and walks, sat outside in the nice weather to read a book and watched favorite movies with my family, like the Hobbit and Pete's Dragon.
What is life going to look like after all the dust settles? These are some of my predictions:
Let EFT Help You Through This Tumultuous Time
If you are struggling at this time, please reach out for help. I have seen great success with Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) tapping. Recently I offered 10 free 30 minute sessions with each client and we tackled such issues like inability to connect with spirit, grieving over a parent who passed away, anxiety about changing jobs, fear of change, depression, abandonment and severe back pain. I was able to help with all of these challenging issues and get my clients at least to feel calm or close to calm after tapping through it.
I am offering a introductory price of $33 for a 30 minute EFT session or $65 for a one hour EFT session. All sessions can be done over the phone or Zoom video conferencing.
Here is what some of my EFT clients have to say about the results they experienced:
I felt the positive effects immediately and feel like I left the tapping session with enough knowledge that I can easily use it again if needed--Brooke
In a very short session, Tina taught me how to use EFT to break through a lifelong resistance and negative belief about myself. I didn’t even know the root of it until she helped me to see it. I also love how Tina acknowledges and celebrates my breakthroughs in healing. I highly recommend working with her--Kim
In the world today, it is easy to feel fearful,stressed and anxious. Tina was able to guide me in an EFT session to help with my anxiety. In just one session, my stress/anxiety level went from a 7 to a 2. Tina is very easy to talk to and offers many different services. She also has the awesome option of doing sessions remotely via Zoom. This is great option when you can't get out and about but need help. I would definitely recommend Tina!--Julie
I've been fortunate to attend her Reiki 1 class and her EFT tapping. It's been almost 24 hours and my anxiety levels are very low. I've been feeling very calm and relaxed--Brittney
I thought I had some blockages pertaining to my spiritual abilities. And from a scale of 1-10 on how much this upset me I was at a 10. I'm a perfectionist so I have an idea of how things should be working in my head and I get upset when I don't perform the way I think I should...After about 3 rounds [of EFT] my feeling of a 10 came down to about a 2 which is incredible... we talked about it a little bit more and she helped me see my situation in a different way. I've had a lot of very powerful experiences and instances that have happened when I wasn't trying or thinking. And she explained to me that when she learned to allow things to flow instead of expecting [things to happen] she found that that way of thinking was much more clear and open...that totally resonated with me and I'm really happy I was able to speak with her. She helped me see it from a different perspective and helped me see that I'm not actually blocked at all--Sofia
My classes will probably be rescheduled to fall dates or later. All my one on one in-person sessions are on hold but I have a lot of remote healing sessions available:

In love and gratitude,
In anticipation of the new season of Clone Wars, I decided to watch an abridged version of the previous seasons with my family. I already knew what was coming because I heard of Ahsoka, Anakin’s apprentice, leaving the Jedi order. My husband and daughters were upset when they first watched it happen and had explained it to me. Ahsoka is also my youngest daughter’s favorite character and she was upset she might not ever see her again.
Last night we finally watched those shows, and I have to say, I don’t blame Ahsoka for leaving the Jedi order. For those who don’t watch the show, Ahsoka has been loyal to her Jedi Master Anakin (the future Darth Vader) and the Jedi Order. She has remained true to their principles and has saved countless lives in the Clone Wars. The Jedi Temple was bombed and Ahsoka and Anakin are assigned as investigators. There are rumors that a Jedi is behind all of this. They find that a mechanic caused the bomb and died in the blast. The wife of the bomber is arrested and held and is about to confess to Ahsoka who is really behind the bombing when she chokes to death a la Force style by an unknown assailant. Since Ahsoka was in the room with her, the assumption was made it was Ahsoka who killed the bomber’s wife.
Clearly this is a set up, but the Jedi seem oblivious to this—like they are oblivious to the fact that Chancellor Palpatine (the future Emperor) is part of the dark side right in their midst! So they continue to accuse Ahsoka of this when 1) she has always been loyal and 2) they never bother to ask her what happened. Then they kick her out of the Jedi order. Finally another Jedi apprentice confesses and the Jedi council apologizes to Ahsoka for doubting her and asks her to come back to the Jedi order. Then she decides no, she wasn’t returning and leaves.
Also let me say how disappointing Yoda is in these episodes. Like, hello, doesn’t Yoda sense that there’s something wrong with Chancellor Palpatine? What’s with his Jedi Spidey senses being off? I mean, isn’t that basic psychic senses and intuition, the ability to sense and know when someone is lying and deceiving you? I keep waiting for Yoda to say, I sense a MAJOR disturbance in the force and he never does!
Ahsoka’s decision to leave the Jedi was sad for many but I understood why she did it, because I could relate to her feelings at that moment. When I was a freshman in my boarding high school I applied to be a prefect (student floor supervisor) for my sophomore year. I really wanted the position but I was denied and told I was too “reserved.” I had to laugh, even then, at that feedback. Reserved would not be a word I would describe myself as being. I wonder which teacher determined that about me?
Anyway, fast forward to junior year and I was walking across the quadrangle heading back to my dorm. Approaching me and heading in my direction was my dorm head, Mrs. Hess. She asked me, “Tina, are you applying to be prefect? I think you be wonderful at it.” At this point I had let go of being prefect and no longer wanted such a position. I smiled at her and said, “I am not interested.” And then I walked away, I felt amazing because just two years prior I was turned down and devastated I didn’t have the opportunity to become prefect.
In reality, I was no longer interested at that point. I was the Founder and President of my high school’s first Environmental Club and future Copy Editor of the yearbook and had my hands full already. That’s why I can relate to Ahsoka, when people don’t believe in you, they lose your loyalty and commitment. And you learn that your own happiness is important and what you think about yourself matters, not what others think of you.
What helped me recover from my rejection was finding activities and issues that mattered to me, like environmental policy. After I pursued my interests, I notice that my fellow students and teachers respected me more.
Not every opportunity is right for you. I used to say yes to everything and regret it. Now I really think about getting involved and whether I even have time for a particular activity. It’s all about good boundaries and self-care now.
Reflections on the Past Decade
I felt compelled to write this blog post today because I was 1) inspired to review the last 10 years of my life thanks to fellow Shaman Khristee Rich and 2) I want to explain what is happening to us in terms of consciousness on this planet. Today, New Year’s Eve and the Eve of a new decade, 2020s, is great time to reflect back on how far you have come in 10 years.
The past 10 years have been really pivotal for me spiritually, emotionally and mentally. I started out this past decade in 2010 becoming a mother for a second time. In 2011 I had my first psychic reading and connected with my late father for the first time. That experience was mind-blowing and opened me up to whole new spiritual worlds. 2014 was a pivotal year for me because I took a Tarot class that literally changed my life. My Reiki teacher taught that class and I ended up getting Reiki trained in 2014 and 2015. I also started practicing mediumship and integrating that into my energy healing sessions. I discovered shamanic healing and learned how to shamanic journey and perform soul retrievals in 2015. And don't forget I started blogging about all of this in 2014.
I started teaching this past decade and worked on my fear of public speaking enough that I can speak to small groups of people without breaking a sweat (I still get nervous though). I started my business in 2014 and in the past year alone I doubled my income.
I have always loved traveling and in the past decade I visited Spain, Austria, Hungary, Hawaii (twice!) and numerous Caribbean Islands like Aruba, Curacao and Bonaire. I spent five days walking along the ancient megaliths of Montana, nine days visiting the sacred sites of Mary Magdalene in southern France and nine days visiting ancient technology sites in Mexico. I spent a week crystal questing in Arkansas and digging up my own quartz crystals.
I moved twice in the past decade. A big move from Virginia to South Carolina in 2016 and a local move this past summer from North Charleston to Summerville. Hopefully we won’t move for a while now. We purchased a vacation condo in Myrtle Beach which we try to enjoy as much as we can.
My friends are my chosen family and they are very important to me. I made wonderful friends this past decade but in truth, I lost a lot of friends, especially from high school. We simply changed too much or we just lost touch. Interesting enough, I am still very much connected to friends I made in my childhood city of New York, maybe we are just truly bonded because of our location. I’ve made wonderful friends here in South Carolina and met wonderful lightworkers and healers as well.
My children have grown leaps and bounds. My daughter Lily started the decade as 4 year old with a brand new baby sister. Now Lily is 13 and almost as tall as I am and Charlotte is quickly catching up. They keep us busy with all their activities: chorus, basketball, soccer and swimming. But to be honest, we can be big homebodies too and stay home for days or entire weekends when we have time off.
What kind of changes have you gone through in the past decade? Pause and reflect for a moment on how far you have come.
The 4th Dimension is Here Knocking on Our Door
Now on to part two of this post: our rise in consciousness. I have been really reflecting a lot lately on what is going on locally and globally in the world. For those that personally know me, they know this is just how I operate and think. When I first moved to my current neighborhood, I started delving into understanding why there was so much paranormal activity here despite the housing being less than 10 years old. I came up with many different factors: being located in the 33rd parallel, the history of the land and location, the people themselves being mostly asleep or in the spiritual closet…but I have come to believe it’s really more than a local issue, I think this is a global issue.
I have recently come to realize that the proof of our ascension is here. We have our feet in two worlds now, one is in the third dimension and the other is the fourth dimension. The third dimension is our physical world, the world that we are very familiar with and is extremely limiting. The fourth dimension is harder to describe:
“So where is this 4th dimension? It is right here, all around us. We do not have to travel to it, it is not separated from the earth plane by distance or time. It is through the ‘portal’ or doorway of consciousness that a spirit must pass to enter the 4th dimension and we as humans can step through this doorway by one of two methods. The first and most obvious is by death of the physical body and the release of the soul. The second is by meditation, astral travel, near death experiences or out of body experiences. Basically this is when our minds enter an altered state of consciousness and split from our physical bodies.” (Supernatural Magazine)
For those of you who meditate, astral travel or shamanic journey, you see, feel and hear the fourth dimensional worlds and it FEELS as real as the third dimension. I have been actively meditating and working in the fourth dimension since around 2011 and to be honest, I have felt fourth dimensional beings around me my whole life. I am familiar with it and the variety of beings that you encounter. And here’s the thing, we’ve come to the point where ordinary humans (the ones that scoff at all things magical) are seeing those beings and experiencing the fourth dimensional timeline too. It’s the universe is saying, “Hey you thought angels weren’t real or spirit guides or even ghosts? Wrong! Here’s a bunch of paranormal stuff that’s going to happen to you and will not have an explanation for it.”
You see paranormal is just a word for the unexplained. The unexplained is unexplainable in the physical third dimension world by science, but all is possible in the fourth dimension and beyond.
“Spirits in the 4th dimension are not only able to see our 3D world but they can choose to intersect with it within the time continuum. Numerous appearances and disappearances of these 4th dimensional spirits are seen and recorded on a regular basis within our plane of reality. Spirits are pure energy and our bodies are merely physical manifestations of that energy, upon death we return to being pure energy. When a 4th dimension being enters our 3D world we view them as a combination of light energy and transparent 3D physicality. This energy or fine matter form is how spirits can move through walls at will. They effectively can ‘squeeze’ through the empty space in the molecules of the wall they are phasing through.” (Supernatural Magazine)
So what’s in store for us in 2020 and beyond? More of the unexplained, more of the paranormal, more synchronicities and more magic. AND I CAN”T WAIT. This is the stuff I love. I know I am here to help transition to the fourth dimension and beyond. This is part of my main mission here on Earth.
There are all sorts of tools for you to start understanding and working with our new fourth dimensional reality that I will be teaching in many classes in the coming year.
So get real ladies and gents and hold on to your hats. The fourth dimension is here (it always was) and the 5th dimension is around the corner!
Lately I have been reminded by the universe how important the eyes are in revealing the truth of who someone is and how they are feeling. There is a saying that the “eyes are the window to the soul.” This is so true! Someone can be smiling and yet their eyes reveal sadness or pain.
Another local Reiki master pointed this out to me when we started discussing local political candidates. There was one in particular that he was suspicious of. He sent me the picture and he told me “look at the eyes.” I wasn’t really seeing anything right away, partly because, although we hadn’t met, we were social media friends and this person seemed to agree with a lot of my political and social beliefs. My friend kept insisting on looking at the eyes and even cropped them out of a picture for me to study. I really wasn’t seeing it.
Finally I could see what he was talking about. One eye seemed cold and distant. This is what he was concerned about. Now interested in this candidate I checked out this person’s Facebook page. This person was a vegan but one of those people who believes everyone should be a vegan. I believe we should have freedom to choose what we eat and that everybody has unique dietary requirements. She basically posted something about this that was very judgmental and critical of people who were not vegan. So I it didn’t take long for me to see something was off about her.
In doing my work, I often want a picture of my client if we don’t work one on one together. A picture of a person can reveal so much about them, especially the eyes. I can also only see around their energy field, any energetic cords that may be attached to them, even ancestors that are looking after them. I read into their emotional and mental fields, revealing how they have been feeling lately and whether they are mentally preoccupied. This is especially important if a client comes to me feeling like they have an attachment or that something is taking their energy.
Try looking at people’s pictures and read what their eyes are saying about them. Look at friends and family member’s pictures or try looking at the pictures of some famous people too. Looking at a picture of someone you don’t know might be easier to read. The more you practice the better you get at it. Ask yourself the following questions as you gaze at the picture:
Some of you know that I recently moved last month from North Charleston to Summerville, SC. It’s something that I would never have predicted because I just moved to the Charleston area three years ago from Virginia. But Spirit has a big way of pushing me when I need it.
Early this year, my earth sign husband brought up moving. There were many practical reasons to move but the sheer amount of work it involves resulted in my answer of a hard “no.” I consulted neighbors and friends about the schools in particular and they calmed my fears and decided moving wasn’t necessary.
Around the 1st of May my neck started hurting. This is not unusual since I have been having stiff neck problems since high school. I tried all my natural remedies with no results. I was really befuddled on why my neck was feeling this way. One of my energy healing teachers offered a mini-reading and I jumped on the opportunity to find out why my neck was hurting (hint for all of you, if it’s not a medical cause, then there’s a spiritual, mental or emotional cause). The first card she pulled was the Ace of Fire (also Wands) which means the beginning of action and taking initiative. Then her next question was, “Are you thinking of moving?”
Talk about nailing it!
I said yes we talked about it and decided not to. She said neck pain describes someone who is not looking at all the options. In my case, I refused to look at one option: moving. She pulled five more cards on the question and she said they all pointed to moving, like a big yes. She said it would be good for me financially and personally. She said it would be hard work for eight months and then I would be able to enjoy the result of my efforts. Well in that case, I decided to make plans for a move.
The next day the neck pain eased.
The following day it came back and I had a nice rash that accompanied it. A rash showed up on the back of my neck and weaved a trail down my left arm. What was disturbing about this was the rash followed the neck pain and radiating down my arm too. I immediately saw a doctor and she diagnosed me with shingles. It took another week of anti-viral medication before the pain went away.
I always like to examine the deeper meaning of why things need to happen, like this move. I know that I had to do it and it would be good for me. But since moving I have discovered the following reasons:
Have you ever had a physical symptom that encouraged you to take a specific action? Comment below!
There’s two ways to approach life: the belief that the universe has your back or that the world is out to get you. Believe it or not, it’s your choice what kind of world you choose to live in.
I grew up around people who would think of the worst case scenario and felt they were being cautious and smart about their decisions. As long as you thought of the worst case scenario, you are prepared for anything right? However, I have learned that this type of thinking is a slippery slope. I now know that words are “spells” and whatever you say and think the universe hears as request. Given this universal rule, is thinking of the worst case scenario smart or are you just sabotaging yourself?
As a Reiki Master Teacher and practitioner of several energy healing modalities, my clients are not always people. Sometimes I travel to destinations in order to offer energy healing to the land. I do not get paid for this (unless a client asks me to come to their home to clear and bless it), yet I feel it is my calling to do this work because it helps the planet and all the living beings on it.
And I receive plenty of thanks and validation from Spirit for doing this work.
When I was in France two years ago I visited a fascinating little church called Cubieres Sur Noble in the Languedoc region. It once was attached to a monastery but only the church remained. Interesting side note is Jesus' family had traveled to France and lived near Mount Bacharach not too far away. They established an Essenes monastery in the area…could this have been the same monastery?
We visited this church twice. It felt quite mysterious. The altar was a powerful spot but as you looked from the altar to the back of the church, it angled to the left at the last minute, a curious alignment. The Knights of Templar and Cathar energies here were very strong. I saw visions of them meeting here, strategizing and protecting the Magdalene teachings and sacred artifacts.
My tourmates, who were gifted healers themselves, and I decided to perform a ceremony in this church to wake up and align its energies. After we were done, the sun suddenly came out and shined through the stain glass window to the floor.
A “sign” of thank you for the work that we did.
After 10 days of lots of high energetic work in France, we were driving to our last destination when we saw a rainbow next to Mount Bacharach. Another sign, since a rainbow is a thank you for doing good work.
In December I did some clearing work at a local haunted jail and as we were wrapping up the work a large hawk sat on a telephone pole in front of the jail the whole time we were there. One of my power animals is a hawk so a fortuitous sign of gratitude from the spirit realm.
I had a particularly powerful mediumship session with a couple and it started raining before they left. In a matter of minutes a beautiful rainbow appeared. Another sign from spirit that “good work” was accomplished.
So in the end, no I don’t get paid for this work, but as you know, it’s not about the money…it’s about the good karma and energy put out into the world that you receive several times over in return.
One week from today I will traveling to Mexico to ancient sites. I look forward to doing some energy healing work in those places and seeing the “signs” that will appear afterwards in support of this endeavor.
Have you received any encouraging signs from spirit? Comment below. I would love to hear them!
What’s the one thing you have to do to get a bully to stop bullying you?
Stand up to them.
Same thing with hurricanes.
I first learned of people affecting the weather several years ago from my Reiki Master Teacher. Her father, a Pentecostal minister, had the ability to move weather out of an area (albeit to somewhere else).
I thought, how fascinating! I wanna do that.
Imagine a superpower where you can actually change the weather?
I never thought I could do it but I can. And I will tell you how.
I started small. I would ask for a certain type of weather when I really needed it. I didn’t want to be selfish or push unwanted weather onto someone else for no reason. For example, we were experiencing an especially rainy spring in 2016 in Northern Virginia. I had booked a photo session with my favorite photographer one evening in May. I said to myself and Spirit: “Please clear the weather for us for a few hours, thank you I appreciate it so much!” The universe cooperated and we were able to have a wonderful and non rainy photoshoot.
More recently I attended an outdoor concert in Charleston SC. It had been storming every day for weeks. As we took our seats I eyed the stormy clouds around us. I requested, like before, “Please clear the weather in and around the stadium so my friends and I could enjoy the show. Thank you” I even mentioned this request to the couple who accompanied us to the show, one of them is a skeptic and the other who is more open.
The skies remained clear above the stadium yet surrounded by clouds. We never got rained out.
I even made sure our friends noticed. They did notice.
This is just two of many examples where I asked for certain weather and I received it. Did I receive it every time? No. But most of the time I have.
There’s no fancy magic or rituals. Just a simply humble request, and a thank you. Try it!
After moving to Charleston two years ago, we have had several run-ins with hurricanes, including Irma and Matthew. I am not used to this type of weather and dealing with the uncertainty of whether to stay or to go. We dealt with many snowstorms in Virginia, but we simply prepared, hunkered down and got ready to be stuck in the house for a few days to a week. We even lost power sometimes, the worst was after several days we had to throw out all the food in the refrigerator and freezer.
For both Matthew and Irma, I sent Reiki into the storm, understanding that storms, hurricanes and twisters contain the unresolved feelings of humans. Yes humans. I drew pictures of the hurricanes sweeping out to sea. It all seemed to work.
But the uncertainty around hurricanes is quite nerve racking.
The most recent hurricane is Hurricane Florence and at the writing of this blog post about to approach the NC coast. She was an angry bully. I sent Reiki to her and worked on loosening the storm visually but she still persisted. She remained a Category 4.
I realized I had to pull out the big guns here. My friend, a seasoned storm buster, gave me a few guidelines to try and I started a warm salted bath.
Hey I do my best work in the bathtub!
I called on everyone: angels, guides, elementals, dragons, creatures of the sea etc All beings of the highest love and light. A big part of what I do is using my clairvoyance to watch what happens. I believe if you witness it, it becomes a reality. So I worked on tapping the emotions of the hurricane: anger, betrayal, hopelessness, hatred etc. Yes Hurricane Florence contained all these emotions and more. All of the these emotions came from Africa and Middle east and was hurling its way towards us on the east coast of the US.
And our fear and anxiety about the storm was pulling it toward us like a magnet.
As an interesting aside, I had been hearing the song Africa by Toto constantly for months. I mentioned it so much on Facebook that my friends started sending me memes about it. I got a particularly funny one below.
I wondered, am I supposed to go to Africa? What is it about Africa does Spirit want me to know? Now I realize they were giving me a heads up about the hurricanes, especially Florence.
After the first night of work, I felt energized. The storm that evening was a Category 4. I went to sleep and the next morning checked the forecast, it had downgraded to a 3, success! I checked with my storm busting friend and she said she felt a shift in energy as well.
We chatted by text and realized we still needed to do more work on the hurricane so we decided to do it together. Since she was in Florida, we did it over the phone. This is not our first rodeo so to speak and have done a lot of work over the phone together. We tried to enter the center of the storm and still saw there was all these awful emotions swirling in there.
We connected with the living beings of the ocean...this made us sad. They felt neglected, ignored and hopeless. We said the Hawaiian prayer of Ho’oponopono: I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you and I love you. But we said it on behalf of ourselves and on behalf of all humanity: we are sorry, please forgive us, thank you and we love you. We directed this to the ocean beings.
Funny thing is we got a surprised reaction. This made me sad, since we have ill treated these beings for so long, our Sirian brothers and sisters, like the dolphins and the whales. They were not used to any human apologizing to them. We asked for their help and they gathered together to talk about it. They did agree to help and we allowed them to do it in their own way.
After 30 minutes of work we wrapped it up. Personally I felt so hot with all the energy of those emotions, it was like having a hot flash. It’s similar to when I am giving a Reiki treatment except more intense. Despite taking a 3 hour nap earlier, I was ready for bed. The storm was still a Category 3.
The next morning I checked the forecast and the storm was downgraded to a 2! Yes! The weather man described dry air had weakened it. Could the dry air be more of a high vibration entering the storm? Could be.
That very night it downgraded to category 1 and went ashore in Wrightsville Beach NC. Remember the forecast said it would go ashore as a Category 3 or 4!
Now for you skeptics out there, you’ll be thinking this is a coincidence.
In my line of work there are no coincidences, things happen for a reason and if you put enough focused intent on something it will manifest. Only experience with this will allow you to feel this is the truth. That’s why I encourage you to practice in your way, even with affecting the weather.
Of course, I contacted many energy healers and lightworkers in my tribe and I reached out to them as well to work on it.
Do you need permission? I would say no. As a human you have permission. We live here and this our home, if we want to help others we always have the green light. Permission is in how you feel, does it feel right? Are you helping others? Then yes, do what you can!
On September 14th the Hurricane came ashore and I was in Georgia waiting out the storm. We decided to go swimming in the pool and one of my favorite things to do is float on the water and watch the clouds. The storm had picked up the wind I was watching the cumulus clouds go one way and the cirrus clouds move more slowly in the background. I blocked the sun with my hand and saw a short little rainbow arc right above me. I had my entire family find it and look at it. It stayed for about 10 minutes.
For me rainbows mean two things: joy and “good job.” I am grateful to do the work that I do and grateful to be at service and Spirit let me know that.
PS I waited a while to post this out of respect for those affected by the Hurricane Florence, especially North Carolina and northern South Carolina who experienced historic flooding. At this moment Hurricane Michael is heading toward the panhandle. You all know what to do now :)

Yup I’ve been silent on my blog lately. I still continue to work and learn but I have been doing big stuff: working, clearing and attuning energy lines and sacred places.
Some of you are thinking, what? And others will read what I just wrote and say yes, I know what this means.
So I haven’t been writing about that particular line of work but I will someday when I feel compelled to share and do so.
In the meantime, I want to share with you my experiences on my latest trip to New Orleans (NOLA). It’s one of my favorite cities and this is actually my 4th visit and the 1st after Hurricane Katrina. We stayed in French Quarter across from the Louis Armstrong Park (this is significant and will mention again later).
The French Quarter seems to be stuck in time and I really like that about New Orleans. In fact, I like any city that seems stuck in time, like Florence, Italy. There are parts of French Quarter that are rowdy and full of partiers, like on Bourbon Street, and other parts that are really quiet like the area we stayed in.
New Orleans has the air of realness to it, unlike the other party city Las Vegas. There’s lot going on in New Orleans, a lot of buzz and activity and yes, if you are wondering, paranormal activity. There are a ton of ghost tours and even a vampire tour.
You know I didn’t partake in any of that because I had some encounters myself!
The day before I left for New Orleans, I thought, hmmm maybe I should get a guidebook. It has been 14 years since I last visited! As I was reading it through, I read about Marie Laveau, the voodoo queen of New Orleans. I didn’t know much about her but she combined some Catholic rituals with voodoo. She was also part of an all women congregation.
As we were taking a cab to the hotel, I got this overwhelming feeling someone or some being wanted to communicate with me. It was Marie Laveau. She knew that I was planning to clear the city of wayward spirits (I do this everywhere I go) and she wanted to support me in this endeavor. I accepted her help and planned to have her present later when I conducted the ceremony.
If there was ever an embodiment of feminine goddess power it would be Marie. In fact she holds that that energy for the city of New Orleans.
I stayed in a hotel across the street from Louis Armstrong Park. We didn’t explore the park right away and when did, it was a wee bit disappointing. There were many buildings and not a lot of green space.
But I stumbled upon an unexpected gem in there.
We found the Congo Square located in the park! According to the official website, “Formerly known as Place de Negres, it took its name from the tradition of slaves who gathered there on Sundays, their day off, to sing, beat drums, sell home-made goods, and celebrate.” But even before it was a gathering place for slaves, this spot was chosen for ceremony by the local Native American tribes.
Well, well, well I just stumbled upon a sacred spot in New Orleans. Every sacred place has one or more energy portals within it. I decided to find the center of it and luckily for me, the designers had created a swirl design of pavers on the ground, and the center was clearly marked.
A little side note here, as I typed the previous sentence one of my herbal tincture bottles full of Echinacea exploded all over my shelf. It scared me enough to jump and I had to stop writing this blog post to clean it all up. I chuck it up to the ancestors trying to get my attention and then of course I burned Palo Santo incense and cleared and blessed my office space. Later I connected with a voodoo priest that actually squeezed the bottle so it exploded. He didn’t want me writing about Congo Square but it’s not like it’s a secret, the plaque clearly states what went on it in there. Of course I sent him into the light as well.
I know that this may trigger some fear in my readers, since voodoo has gotten a bad rap. Just know that I have taken my full power as a human being and shaman when dealing with the spirit world and know how to handle such wayward spirits.
As I was saying…I located the center of the Congo Square and stood right there. When you stand in a vortex, keep your body very relaxed and loose. Close your eyes and keep your arms to your side. The vortex of energy will pull you, sometimes forward, sometimes backward. That’s how you know you found it. I plan on doing such activities in my future sacred journey and retreats, the first I am planning in the Yucatan Mexico next year.

We did a lot of walking around the French Quarter and happened upon an adorable art shop. I had forgotten how Catholic NOLA was and there were mini paintings of Catholic saints, many of them women.
This caught my attention.
I saw that someone had purchased a mini painting of Joan of Arc and started to pick up each piece, looking on the back for an identification of which saint it was. And to my surprise and delight, I found a painting of Mary Magdalene. And of course I had to bring it home.
When I visited France last year, I saw many statues and souvenirs of Saint Mary Magdalene but hardly ever seen anything in the United States.
I ended up doing the clearing and blessing of the city from my hotel room (in retrospect, should have carved out time at the Congo Square). Alas, I was pretty tired from all the walking and sightseeing so the hotel room it was!
One night we made a reservation at the restaurant Muriel’s. Before we left for NOLA, I had made several reservations at a few restaurants since one goes to NOLA to eat. It is located in a beautiful building in the French Quarter with a lot of history and serves as the inspiration for the restaurant in Princess and the Frog. In another serendipitous moment, I learned the restaurant was rumored to be haunted by the previous building owner Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan who committed suicide. To this day the restaurant sets a table for him that is located in a back room near the stairs and anyone can view it.
When I connected with him he was already in the light but liked to visit. This made sense because people have seen a sparkly white light in the restaurant and that was him. Others have seen dark shadows and those are most likely wayward spirits.
I asked the waiter about the ghosts. He said there was one a few years back that used to throw glasses across the bar. Although I had not walked around the restaurant, I intuitively felt that the bar was located in the back to my left. Later while I looked for the restrooms I found out that I was right.
Whatever it was, this wayward spirit was not a nice one. I quickly led it into the light on the other side.
After dinner, I asked the host where the ghost table was. He said that it was in the back, by the stairs. He also said we were welcome to go to the 2nd floor and look around. The 2nd floor was extremely cold and it’s where they used to hold séances. I didn’t pick up on anything there as I was ready to leave and just exploring.
So all this occurred in just a four day trip to New Orleans. If you ever visit, make sure you stop by Congo Square and Muriel’s. It’s a beautiful place to explore, eat wonderful food and interact with the paranormal if you so choose.
If you have paranormal activity in your home or property and want to find out exactly who it is, contact me. I do clearings and blessings of property. For more information on what this process entails click here.
