There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head. “Well,” she said, “I think I’ll braid my hair today.” So she did and she had a wonderful day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head. “H-M-M,” she said, “I think I’ll part my hair down the middle today.” So she did and she had a grand day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head. “Well,” she said, “today I’m going to wear my hair in a pony tail.”
So she did, and she had a fun, fun day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn’t a single hair on her head. “YAY!” she exclaimed. “I don’t have to fix my hair today!”
Attitude is everything.
I wrote at When One Person Wants To Keep Fighting that long time friend Domino wants to keep arguing about something and I wrote her that I’m not into fighting and to call me when she’s over it. After that she wrote another long email about why part of our arguing is “the administration’s fault” and she demanded I acknowledge her being right and apologize in person. I told her that since she is this confrontational via email, I have no interest in being in person with her. Bear in mind this person knows I work about 18 hours a day and have about 3-4 days in between each issue of the magazine to just goof off and do whatever I want. Being a friend, last year I confided to her that I miss having time for a social life to hang around with friends, but that I love my work and feel my work is my mission and that’s why I choose to make it a priority. Even though we just live a few blocks apart, since we reconnected last year after maybe 10-15 years, we’ve only had 3 or 4 visits of 10-15 minutes each in person. So she called me on the carpet for again not meeting her expectations and seeing things her way. Once again she missed the point. Read on and decide for yourself. The point of this post is not to say she’s wrong and look how silly she’s being, the point is that no matter how clearly you think you are communicating with someone, being right to the point and telling them exactly what you are doing and why, not everyone hears what you say. They are too shrink wrapped in their own head trip. I’ve been there myself. Often. Continue reading
I wrote at A longtime buddy blocks me on Facebook over politics that I’ve got a real life friend and neighbor I reconnected with after several years’ absence. On Facebook I learned Domino had become a Republican extremist and that he had a habit of posting inaccurate and inflammatory slurs on Facebook. Including my Wall, and always a recitation of what he heard on Fox News that day. So last month I ticked him off and he unfriended me and forwarded me 30+ spam emails spouting anti-Obama until I emailed: “Sorry for my part in whatever you are upset with. Let’s take a break. Please don’t forward me any emails. I’m sorry. Thank you. I forgive you. I love you.” He wrote to me this morning and said “I’d like to talk to u – in person – about what happened. I replied, “I‘m already over it – I just figure Facebook isn’t the place for us to interact. I still love you, just not into fighting about politics or anything else.” Continue reading
I was talking to my friend Bryan Tilford the other day and we were coordinating available time. I gave him an outline of my schedule, which is ever changing. He said, “Keep me posted and I’ll do whatever I want to do about that.” I love a good open-ended, non-committal response. I’m going to use that.
"I do." And with your best friend, too.
I wrote yesterday on Facebook that I saw a friend in the market who says he knows his wife is cheating because he figured out her email password and reads her emails back and forth with some guy she met online. He says it’s been going on for 2 months and it’s making him sick. I told him to stop reading the emails. It’s not what she’s doing that is ruining their marriage and making him sick, it’s his response to what she’s doing. After yesterday’s thread on my Wall, a friend wrote: “My husband is cheating also. It’s a lil more complicated than that, but isn’t it always.” It’s my experience men “cheat” and it doesn’t mean they love me/you any less. I figure if everything else is fine, that’s no biggie. I’ve done hundreds of readings for men who cheated and they said they just feel compelled to get back in the race every so often to see if they still have it. Most times they do not want to leave the marriage and love their wife, just feel the need for some strange. Continue reading
I wrote at We Clear Domino’s House of a Playful Spirit that someone was told I could banish “demons and bad spirits” for them. I don’t experience nonphysical energy as demonic or bad, but I knew what he meant and was able to help him. Spirit releasement is among the most important work that a psychic medium can perform, helping direct earthbound entities into the Light. I wrote about it on Facebook and a couple of friends wrote comments about entity attachment and one wrote that a lot of times people get freaked out by what she says to them, and they go running for the hills. I hope she was joking. If she was not, I hope she practices and hones her skill before doing that again. A most important job a psychic medium has is ascertaining the ability of her recipient to receive the information in such a way that they can deal with it and use it. Anyone can have a vision and repeat what they see; the skill is in matching the info with the ability of the sitter to grok it and use to navigate their daily life. Example: Send a 40 year space veteran and a five year old child in a shuttle to the moon and upon their return, ask each to tell what they saw. One talks from a place of broad awareness and deep understanding. I’d want a medium that does the same, that has a broad awareness and enough life experience to have a wide vocabulary. Although I’ll bet the kid could likely weave a fancy story around his trip and keep me entertained. Bless the psychic mediums who perform this most profoundly important work.

Spirit releasement is among the most important work that a psychic medium can perform, helping direct earthbound entities into the Light. I received a call from an engineer at Harris who told me he didn’t believe in this stuff but suddenly his house is haunted and he was referred to me by an unnamed mutual friend who said I can banish demons and bad spirits. Not what I’d put on my resume, but I told him I’d check it out. I met with Domino, a 30 something very conservative, left brained engineer, his wife, her grandmother and their 8 year old daughter. We sat at the dining table and I explained what we’d spend the next hour or two doing. When I feel their response to what I’m saying, that helps me know how to word things so they understand. Their understanding of the process is a factor in how successful the house clearing will be. Once the solution becomes clear in consciousness, the problem disappears on its own. Continue reading
My friend Domino comes in town a couple of times a year. Domino is a metaphysical teacher, healer and massage therapist I’ve known since the 90’s and she’s also a client and former advertiser. Domino has a habit of never planning ahead since she never knows where she’ll be travelling next. Because of this, she depends on friends to get the word out for her when she’ll be in town giving a workshop. The only problem is that she turns every visit into a self promotion session and that makes me not want to spend time with her. You know the type: every time you meet they have to tell you how many people they’ve helped and give long testimonials about what their super powers are and why their work is effective and who they are channelling and how much bad energy they are removing from everyone’s aura. I’m of the old school where you let your life speak for itself, especially around friends in leisure time. I’ve got several well known authors and speakers as personal friends and when we’re together, we talk about our ordinary lives. Continue reading
This is Florida and we get lots of bugs outside, especially living in a wooded area as we do. When my Uncle Jimmy built my house in 1984, he put 100 pounds of boric acid in the walls, which he said would control the bugs, especially the palmetto bugs and cockroaches. It apparently worked really well because until last year, 27 years later, I hadn’t seen any bugs inside except for the occasional ant. Last year I saw a small roach on two occasions and Saturday I saw one in my kitchen cabinet. That was all it took to get me out to buy a Raid Concentrated Deep Reach insect fogger and set it off before I left for church. Continue reading
Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba is no more with us physically. He left his earthly body on 24 April 2011 at 7:40 a.m (10:10 pm Eastern time). “Service to man is service to God. Dedicate all your gifts to service to mankind, to all living beings. Love all, Serve all.” Sai Baba’s devotees called him Swami. I learned at church this morning that Swami had passed and I was at once joyous yet sad. My astral body had its few minutes of tears, even though I know there is no death. I discovered Sai Baba in 1990. A series of synchronicities and “accidents” had me in stop at Pat Thomas’s house in the middle of the day. Judy Kopp, whom I did not know at that time, came by and invited Pat to go to the home of Buddy and Shanti Balwant, devotees who had just returned from India where they’d gotten darshan from Sai Baba. Not knowing who it was, suddenly my mouth was saying, “I want to go.” Continue reading
