A few weeks ago, I got a call from a friend of mine. She'd met a man online and wanted to know my opinion.
As an intuitive, I usually get a good read on people and events, and friends and clients have relied on my skills as a intuitive guide and transformational teacher to support them during life's challenges. But, over the years, I've learned that there are specific times when I should never use my intuition.
1. Energy drain - We are all energy. Every exchange you have with individuals or groups (whether conscious or unconscious) can potentially feed or drain you, in some way. One of the biggest lessons I've learned, over the years, is discernment in who I choose with whom I choose to share my energy.
2. There's a catch - in this scenario you hold the key to...

Heath was the self-proclaimed eyes and ears of the office.
With the information he gathered, he would carefully curate it for his own needs. Heath was very insecure and in desperate need of ego validation, so he was constantly scanning the floor for people to feed his thirst for positive attention. If he felt someone was not being as positive toward him as he wished, he’d make their life miserable. He’d gossip with other assistants and fuel any gossip he encountered with tidbits he’d gleaned during his fact-finding missions.
Then, he’d rally people around him and against whomever committed the egregious act of not giving him the recognition he thought he was due.
Many times, I had to stop what I was doing and tend to whatever discomfort Heath had unearthed to mai...
When I was five, I was visited by a vision. I'll never forget it, I was running down the stairs and the entity, a girl with dark hair, stopped me in my tracks. The spirit said that I would go through a deeply challenging time in my life, but would resurface, later in life, with unimaginable joy and fulfillment. That vision stayed with me. In middle school, I would sit quietly at my desk adding up the years to figure out exactly when my life would turn around.
Around that same time, my grandfather returned from a business trip from Japan with a unique gift—a genuine lovely kimono. It was far to big for me, at the time, and I imagined what the beautiful red fabric covered in ribbons of orange yellow and green flowers would look like on my future self.
We all perform rituals every day: from making the morning coffee to driving to buying groceries or even to going to the dentist. Here’s what happens: We say we’re going to make the coffee, we make the coffee and then we drink the coffee.
How is that a ritual? You ask.
1. It starts with an intention: “I am going to make the coffee.”
2. The intention is followed by an action: Making and drinking the coffee.
3. Completion: You feel energized by the coffee.
To take this a step further, say you want a new job, but don’t feel qualified. By performing a ritual to remove the energetic obstacle between you and the new job, you create a new path to receiving information about how to achieve your go and stand a much better chance of ge...
Yesterday, as I was cleaning out my office, deciding whether or not to keep my worn copies of “One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich” and “From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler,” I stumbled across a hardbound book with an equally long name—“How to Drive Your People Wild Without Driving Them Crazy.”
Before I even opened up the hardcover to peek inside, I knew there was no question about keeping this one. This book and the author’s personal inscription are the reasons why I will never, ever give up pursuing my dreams.
Sitting in my comfy office chair, I closed my eyes and remembered how this all came to pass. The new architectural high-rise in Kansas City was the perfect location for a new coaches retreat. Our group had been meeting on conference c...
Sarah Marks came out to me on a sunny Tuesday afternoon as I was driving back to the office after lunch .
It had been a long and circuitous journey with Sarah and I thought I knew everything about her. To say I was surprised is putting it mildly. At first I didn’t believe her. She was making it up to get attention. Then I felt protective. I didn’t want people making fun or shunning her. As is the case in the complicated relationship between author and character, sometimes everything isn’t known up front and the mysteries lie in the subtleties. PLEASE HOLD was supposed to be a New Adult, Romance about the world of high-level, Hollywood studio executive assistants. A quirky tale about one women’s struggle to divine guidance.
No one enjoys an obstacle. Unless, of course, you really don’t want to get to wherever you’re trying to go. This month’s ritual is about asking the very thing that stands between you and your desires for a divine message. You may be surprised at what information your obstacle has for you or not. Either way, you’ll be able to see beyond that which has been blocking you. As the ritual says, "Freedom is yours." You just have to ask.
Ritual: Removal of Obstacles
Oil: Base of Kukui Oil – Geranium, Melissa, Clove
Incantation: “I see the light to my divine path.”
Find a place where you will not be interrupted. Light the sage and sit while the smoke surrounds you. Anoint your third eye with the oil. See your biggest obstacle in front of you. Now, examine...
