I woke this morning with tears rolling down by cheeks. No, it was not sadness. It was all because of one highly emotional and powerful idea. Here it is: Don’t wait! Don’t wait until you are perfect. Don’t wait for the best time. Don’t wait until you know exactly how you should begin. Just start. Just shower forth all the Light you have today, this minute. Save this idea of being “perfect” for later. For today, just give your personal light, love, compassion, and understanding in the best way you can.

Everyone on earth today, every animal, every living thing can use more light, more love, more understanding. If you have been locking the best of yourself away until you were sure you had it “right”, until you had refined all your thoughts, all your methods, stop. Begin this minute to pour yourself into your personal idea of Spirit service.

Make a strong definite decision to begin sending this uplifting energy to all life that you contact. Once you have made that purely mental decision, move away from the realm of mind and thought, begin to act only from the depths of your heart and soul.

The pure energy coming from love’s wisdom emanating from the depths of your heart and soul offers the greatest healing stream. It is a vibration that balances, enlivens and challenges.

When you project your personal love and light you become a magnet that draws even more love and light to you. You find yourself in the company of those of similar intent, those who are working from their own highest ideals.


You and I arrived on earth at this particular time to express our God given light and love for the purpose of evolving all life. It is our responsibility to hold and send forth as much of this precious Spirit energy as we can.

Waiting until you know the exact “right” way to do this sending of pure light and love, makes no sense. The only way you can perfect your transmission is to begin transmitting. Now is the time to start. Know that you were born with the ability and creativity you need to make a difference.

Years ago I attended a concert at the University of Illinois that continues to live in my memory. Karen Carpenter was singing: “Don’t worry that it’s not good enough for anyone else to hear just sing, sing a song.” I encourage you, begin your song today. “Sing it loud, sing it clear” It is your song and only you know the right words and music.

Life does not get better with hesitation and fear. Life has to be lived to the fullest or it will be pale and lack any demonstrable meaning.

The more you throw yourself into the business of living from your creativity, your Spirit lead ideas, the more wonderful ideas you will have. The more you act on those ideas the greater your benefit to yourself and those around you. You become a powerful energized example of light.

In this time that seems to offer only disruption and chaos, there is also the most dynamic and progressive of possibilities. Wherever you see change that seems so upsetting, know that something better is on its way. You are in the enviable position of welcoming this positive “repositioning” of life as we have known it.

At this particular time in earth’s history we are each asked to step forward to contribute our very best. We are called upon to evolve ourselves to the point that we create and welcome our own ascension and offer the ascension process to all life.

Know that each of you is a powerful being. Individually and together you have access to all the wisdom and energy that you could possibly use. Believe in yourselves and your potential. Today you together with all the other light bearers are creating mankind’s future and earth’s future. You are truly that powerful. You are that important.

Throughout your day you make various decisions. You move forward, take an action on one task and discard or ignore another. Some of your decisions are minor and of little importance. It seems obvious for instance that little impact comes from choosing one breakfast cereal over another.

On the other hand certain types of decisions can have a more life altering affect. It is those decisions that change the course of your personal history that I wish to address today.

For example, it could be that you feel the need to move out of or drop a personal relationship. It is possible that another rather “foreign” or possibly untried geographic location seems to be calling you. Perhaps a major employment change is being offered away from your current comfort zone.

Larger, deeper and definite positive choices of that kind can open up your life path; give you a greater view of growth-filled possibilities. Unfortunately poor or negative choices can detour your goals, or lead to a number of dead ends.

Those major choices that you make determine how engaged you will be with your own physical and spiritual progress. In fact some decisions have so great an impact that they can determine the course of the rest of your life.

I do not say these things to put you on guard or to frighten you, but rather to offer you another way of making decisions.

This final extra or additional method is to be used only when you have done all the usual homework regarding a particular challenge. It is to be used only when you have looked at the facts, consulted with your spirit guides, masters, and high self. Then is the time to use one more measure!

Let me preface this explanation of the method by saying that I believe strongly in LOVE’S WISDOM. When there are several choices facing me, I choose the way dictated by Love. Love always offers the highest and best to me and the highest and best to any others who may be affected by my decision.

Then here is what I call the HEART SCALE for your use: Close your eyes. Think, feel or imagine that directly in front of you is your personal Heart Scale. It is an upright scale similar to one that might be used to weigh fruits or vegetables. If it helps, you can color the scale pink, gold or any loving color that appeals to you.

When you have that vision firmly in place, imagine further that the large digital scale numbers read from 1 to 10. Ten is the highest and most positive. Now, drop your decision on that scale and see what number IMMEDIATELY flashes on the scale. If you take more than 2 seconds to read the number, you have left your heart decision and moved, or deferred to, your mind or rational thinking decision.

This is a very accurate measure of how your heart and love center feel about any particular decision as long as you make an immediate reading of the number. If you cannot succeed with the instant reading the first time, set the technique aside for awhile and try again.

One of the reasons for using the Heart Scale is to override our human tendency to lie to ourselves about some issues. This tendency comes into play when we feel acknowledging our own deep truth will lead us to making big and sometimes scary changes.

Many times we tend to try to avoid large shifts in our beliefs. We feel we need to be “right” rather than accept and actively pursue what is actually good for us.

I hope you will try this technique. Have fun with it. Make it joyful because your heart wants to be joyful!

Today I am giving you a very special gift. I am printing for you the personal permission slip you were given when you entered this lifetime. It says: “In this moment and now and forever you are granted the unending right to be and express that very special, unique, unusual individual you were born to be.” Now I must ask you: Are you willing to use that right?

Just as no two snowflakes are alike, you are not like any other person on this earth or possibly any other life form in the cosmos. It is your own individuality that is your gift. You are special and important. I applaud all your differences.

Somewhere deep inside you lives a power filled urging to carve your own path, to pull away from whatever anyone else thinks you should or ought to do. Your soul pushes you to express your uniqueness, to take chances by acting on your wildest ideas.

Oh, yes, you may have goals and objectives that are similar to the ideas of others, but your way of accomplishment will never be the same. Your methods will not be identical to those of anyone else. You were born to shine in your own way. None of you are clones.

Why is this so important? Because by acknowledging your unique desires and abilities you are shedding the inhibiting guidelines you have absorbed or inherited from family, friends or coworkers. This letting go of past instructions will allow you to finally fully actuate the life that your soul intended from your birth. By projecting the truth of who you are into your life, you may lose a friend or two but I promise you will attract others who see and appreciate the light and love that you are.

Going along with mass thought, following the majority or the crowd will not make you happy. It is not only O.K. to use the road less traveled, the belief system less used, it is necessary. Each of you must carve your own path by following the urging of your heart. When you feel joy pour over you like a warm shower you are pursuing exactly what you need to do regardless of anyone else’s opinion or reaction.

Because you are individual, one of a kind, there is no single plan, no one way for gaining those experiences and that education for which you came to earth, for which you incarnated to be here at this particular time in the planet’s evolution. “One size” does not now and never will “fit all”.

Do you have day dreams or night visions that tug at your heart, dreams that beg you to follow them? Do not let them get away for lack of your attention. Write down your desires. Maybe you feel they are impossible or impractical but do not let them get away.

If your dreams are important enough to stir your soul, imagination and emotion, they are important enough to keep. Those dreams can be Spirit’s way of giving you directions, allowing you to attain resonance with your soul. What does not work today may well work tomorrow. Just acknowledging the desires of your heart can magnetize your personal energy to draw others to help you. Writing those heartfelt desires in a journal brings them energy and life.

As a psychic, I offer Dream Work as well as Intuitive
Development classes from time to time. I design all of those classes to be as much fun and games as possible simply because people seem to learn much faster in that kind of format. Why study dreams? Why push toward intuitive development? Because if you become more aware of the inner essence or truth of what is happening within you and around you, you can make more life affirming choices.

I believe too many of us go through life holding back our words and thoughts for fear of offending someone with our beliefs or saying something too “far out.” Much to my daughter’s embarrassment, I have a habit of striking up a conversation about anything most anywhere. One night when we were entertaining I asked our guests “Have any of you ever seen a U.F.O.?” I could almost feel my daughter sink into the carpet. But that question started a very lively and interesting conversation.

Let me tell you about my trip to Walmart the other day. This story has nothing to do with guides, angels and masters or even the meaning of life but here it is anyway. I had just walked in the back door of Walmart when I noticed this little curly haired older lady with an empty shopping cart. She was leaning just a bit on a small cane. Without meaning to I began to laugh so hard I nearly turned inside out.

Naturally she turned to look at me. I touched her lightly on one shoulder and said “I just can’t help it. I got the funniest idea in my mind that I was going to grab your cart and run down the aisle with you chasing me. I would never do such a thing and I can’t imagine why I even thought it! I must be tired to get so silly.” By that time we were both laughing till people began to stare. She said, “Worse than that, I wouldn’t have been able to catch you!”

I like to think that both of us felt a little lighter after all that fun. I smile every time I think about it. We tend to take everything in life so seriously that once in a while we just need a little comic relief.

To some degree all of us are the product of those “rights and wrongs” we learned in childhood. Our parents with their beliefs and understanding did the best they could to guide us but as adults we need to look carefully at those early rules and judgments that may no longer serve us. We need to acknowledge something as basic as it is alright to talk to strangers.

In still another realm of influence we may be tempted to “fall in line” with our friends or co-workers ideas of what is right for us when what we really need is to learn to listen to our soul’s directions.

To illustrate our tendency to do the so called right or expected thing, let me tell you about my cat Festus. I had just moved with my adopted alley cat, Festus, to a new home in Austin, Texas. I was worried that he would become disoriented in the neighborhood so I bought a little harness and attached him with a chain on the patio under the shade of the roof. I intended to keep him tied for maybe three days until he could understand that this was his new home.

All went well for a couple of days. I kept him fed, watered and shaded. Then on day number three I came out to pet him and there was no Festus, just a harness and a chain. I immediately started searching the neighborhood and spotted him a few blocks down the street. When I called to him he ran the opposite direction. I thought that was the end of that.

However, when I got back to the house there he was, sitting right beside his harness and chain pretending he was still attached. How smart are animals? I have to wonder though if his behavior wasn’t akin to something we do. We break away from some of the old learned behaviors that no longer fit and then, out of comfort or familiarity, we go right back.

Perhaps unconsciously, we feel the need to conform to the patterns that our family or friends have created for us. Most folks have a tendency to resist change. Those people we are close to may be more content with their perceptions of us if we are willing to be predictable. They may be happier if what they have decided to be true about us remains static. In many cases, they prefer it if we will stay in the little identity box they have created for us.

Is it any wonder that we tend to have communication challenges with our relationships when we understand things so differently? Working with your own intuition, sharpening your inner awareness can be a communication tool and blessing. Strengthened intuition absolutely will improve your understanding of others in your life, but equally important, it will help you to understand your own actions and motivations.

I am reminded of one of the Carlos Castaneda books. In it his mentor and teacher, Don Juan, tells Carlos, “You must lose your personal history.” Carlos says he can’t do that. He has earned this degree, he has had this experience. But Don Juan insists, telling him he has to be who he is today, this minute.

I believe that is what each of us must do. Yes, our past has brought us to this day, our current level of understanding, but we cannot live from or in the past. We need to be the new “this minute” us, this “now” us with all our new ideas, understanding and concepts. It is definitely o.k. to be different! It is right that you and only you should select your current path and ideas.

Embrace change. Welcome it in your life. It is only through change that you can move forward. Look at your own life from a different point of view. Ask yourself questions! Who or what is center stage in your life today? Is there reciprocity in this situation or are you bleeding away all your energy. Does this activity or relationship fill you with joy or emptiness?

Sometimes that which was on center stage in your life needs to be loved from a distance or moved to the curb!
Each of you has a soul that is always prompting you to move forward, to accomplish. It urges you from your heart to be as much as you can be, to use your special gifts and talents.

Listen to that warm, urging heart emotion. If you are able to perceive that heart and soul wisdom with greater understanding and give it your full attention, you will find the way to access a more fulfilling joy and flow in your life.

How can you know if you are on your LIFE PATH? I have the question so many times in my work as a counselor. Fortunately, you have been given the measuring stick or tool to use for just such a question. When the path your are on, the work you are doing is so much a part of you that minutes and hours spent in that endeavor mean nothing, you have found it. When you never bother to look at a clock because you are doing what you love, you are on your path. When your heart sings and your spirit soars, you have found IT!

Being your authentic self, finding your way to your special destination may not happen in an instant. No matter how long it takes, your dedication to the journey will be an inspiration to others. Each step along the way is a learning experience.

Develop the gifts and the talents that you have. Work with those occupations or goals that draw you in and will not let you go. No one person can decide for you what your life is about. Not your closest friend, not your parents, not your spouse can ever know the intimate details of what makes you special.

Be proud of your individuality and make the best use of it. You are important to this earth and all of her inhabitants. No one can make the contribution you came here to make. Believe in yourself and step forward with confidence.

I am always ready to help you with any of your life challenges and questions. Call today for your private counseling appointment. I welcome you to my Prescott, Arizona studio or to a telephone session. In either case I will give you a cassette tape of your reading for your later review. Be sure to ask about chakra clearings with sound, color and crystals and private intuitive development lessons.
