As a child, I grew up in New England and October was my favorite month because the green leaves transformed to a brilliant red, yellow, and orange panorama. This glorious colorful gift of Mother Nature reminds me to change with the seasons and be bold in life. I recall searching the ground under various trees looking for the most beautiful leaves. I would proudly bring them home and carefully iron their splendor into two sheets of waxed paper so I could savor their brilliance. I always felt sad when even though they were protected by the wax covering them, they would still turn dull and then decay and die.

September, I find, is often a very busy time that follows the relaxation of summer. There is a push in the air that I feel more than the rest of the year. A brisk motivating breeze to get things done and be productive. This can result in me pushing myself too hard and needing to remember the value of rest and replenishing myself spiritually. A walk in the woods or sitting at my altar meditating are two of the best ways for me to reconnect with my inner essence.

August is here and it brings in that time of year when students, both young and old, go back to school. As traditional schooling is completed, many of us go through seasons of learning very similar to our formal education, but in our own minds. I have to admit that although I am no longer in school, I relish the art of learning and have become aware of the cycles of knowledge that ebb and flow within us. It is my hope and intention that as I mature I will always maintain an open mind and an interest in learning new ideas, ways of being and activities. Currently, I have a lovely routine carved out in my life that supports me in my spiritual, mental, emotional and intellectual growth. This routine allows me to keep moving in a journey of constant and never-ending improvement. But I have to mix it up with new books, new adventures and new associations. Otherwise I become static and stuck in my box of familiarity. Just as children are arriving into new classrooms and anticipating new faces and encounters, I invite you to challenge yourself to learn a new skill, take a new class or venture into a new field such as metaphysics or parapsychology. Let’s welcome August with the enthusiasm of a child excited about their first day of kindergarten.

I just got back from a family reunion in California. It was my birthday gift to myself. I organized this week-long gathering of twenty family members, about six months ago. My birthday month is July and I like to celebrate with my twin sister if possible, so I started with that idea and then expanded. We had an amazing seven days together.

I like summertime because it is usually the herald that brings more time together as a family, perhaps some time to vacation, and often, more time to relax and re-connect. For this sunny season, I’m looking forward to a family reunion and the opportunity to visit with relatives near and far. I value these shared moments.

As of May 3, 2017, we will complete another round of an astrological transit called Mercury Retrograde. This three-week period is a time when appointments often get mixed up, electronics go haywire and people from the past reenter our lives. The best way to deal with these unexpected events is to be flexible.

As a child growing up in snowy Massachusetts, I remember hearing my mother repeating the old saying “April showers bring May flowers.” She lovingly encouraged me to be patient with the cold and rainy weather that followed the snow. She would often remind me that, yes, spring would definitely arrive.

Today I pulled an angel card called “truth.” I sat for a minute and reflected on what that angelic message means in my life right now. To be real, authentic, and truthful, takes courage and trust. I closed my eyes and asked inside to honestly know what area or aspect of myself needs to be brought into the light for healing and true transparency, both with myself and with others. The word “sparkle” came. It was then that I realized that today, rather than feeling like my inner light is dazzling and bright, I was feeling a little dull.

The month of October always invites my imagination to conjure up a new Halloween costume. I tend to stick to the light and happy costumes like angel, fairy or butterfly. I’ve never liked scary movies, haunted houses or ghoulish costumes. Yet, at this time of year, the darker side of life is summoned to emerge and find its expression. Perhaps there is some metaphysical meaning in the cultural habit of expressing the shadow side by embodying skeletons, werewolves, and other dark characters for one night in the year. On Halloween, some people don costumes of warriors, ghosts and demons as if to say “Look how powerful I am”. The dark costumes honor the aspect of death, destruction and fear. While, on the other hand, there will be many super heroes, ballerinas and kitties to represent the lighter side of life. I believe there is an existential battle we all fight between our loving higher selves and our fearful selfish selves that gets portrayed in the Halloween parades and fairs. When we learn and come to terms with the idea that perhaps we are all saints and villains in different circumstances, then we can embrace the darker side of Halloween. Our higher selves know that love is the most powerful force in the universe and does not cow down to negative or fearful energies. So enjoy the interplay between the dark and light this Halloween as you keep your focus on love.

Mercury, the planet associated with communication, went retrograde on Aug 31. This can often mean that plans get changed, or that technical devices used for transmitting electronic information can have glitches. Computers, recording devices and phones can be challenging during this period. For me, when I know that Mercury is retrograde for a 3 week period, I remind myself to be flexible and to be willing to adapt to schedule changes. I also try to be extra patient with myself if I double book someone or mix up an appointment time. Usually, I remember that there is a divine perfection in the universe, and if I can flow with unexpected changes, then I can maintain peace amidst the temporary chaos. A dear friend reminded me to stay positive during Mercury retrograde and to “Use the energies as best we can.” Oftentimes when something goes wacky with a piece of electronic equipment during a Mercury retrograde period, the device will fix itself when Mercury goes direct. The trick for me is to not panic when a necessary piece of equipment malfunctions. I am humbly reminded that there are big universal energies way larger than my small outlook on life that influence me and my world. What a blessing it is to get older and less reactive to Mercury's whimsical and mischievous energies!

Today in Maui, the children are all heading back to school. The year will begin with a review of what they have learned, and then new lessons will be added. I remember the sadness of leaving the freedom of summer behind and entering into the structured world of school. Yet, once at my desk, I loved learning new things! I was an avid reader, and the language arts was my favorite area of study. On the other hand, math was difficult, and I always felt challenged with mastering the lessons. The open-mindedness to learn, also known as “beginner’s mind,” was natural as a child. As an adult, I find myself filtering and judging and sometimes having a closed mind to learning new subjects. Then I remind myself to become more childlike and receptive and less ridged. As a teacher of psychic development, I help students learn to return to their beginner’s mind and open to the voice of their higher guidance within. We each have invisible teachers and guides that are assisting us to become all that we can be. When we become the humble students, then we learn all we need to know to be happy, healthy and on purpose in our lives. My Psychic Immersion retreat on Maui begins Friday August 5th through August 9. Give yourself the gift of returning to your soul.

July heralds in memories of childhood for me because both my parents were born in July, as well as my sister and myself. In remembering my youth, I recall being painfully shy and afraid of conflict, as well as feeling embarrassed to be overly sensitive to other’s emotions. As I grew into adulthood, I learned to find my voice, develop self-confidence and cultivate my gift of intuition. Inner freedom happened when I released those old limiting beliefs from childhood about not being good enough and feeling like I was faulty for being so psychically sensitive. But, these childhood patterns can rear up from time to time. As long as I am willing to overcome those fears and manifest my greater self, I know freedom. During this month of July which celebrates independence, I invite you to shake off any old beliefs that are keeping you small and come home to your truest intuitive, happy self.

While crossing the street from the post office today, I was shocked when a big gold Hummer almost hit me. I was in the crosswalk and the “walk” sign was lit. I got half way across the street when suddenly I felt the wind from a vehicle and heard tires screech. I quickly jumped forward and turned around to see a thirty something couple (probably tourists in a hurry) careening off down the road. They came so close to hitting me as they turned left, directly towards me, that their bumper brushed by me. I got to the sidewalk and said a prayer of thanks for another day to be alive. I know it is kind of trite to say we never know when our time will come, so we should live life fully, but truly, this experience today awakened me to the beauty of the moment. I thought about my four kids and how much I love them and how grateful I am to be here another day for this amazing journey through life. My hope for the world is that we can let go of anything on your hearts that is impeding our aliveness. In that open hearted freedom, we can see that life in this very moment is precious- just as it is.

I’ve noticed as I’ve gotten older and seen some of my friends retiring that there is value to living a balanced life. The friends that worked too much seem a bit lost in retirement mode, and the friends who always took time to travel and have fun seem to be adjusting to the lack of work quite well. Up until recently, I have been a bit unbalanced with the number of hours I work, leaving little room for play and relaxation. Luckily, I love my work and feel very blessed to be doing it. I especially enjoy the feeling of presence and peace I experience when I do psychic readings. Yet, the other part of my work: marketing, record keeping and booking appointments requires a much different energy and focus. This is where things can get overwhelming. I see now that it is beneficial to leave more room between my activities and balance the “doing” with “being”. There is a very great gift in stillness. Stillness must be cultivated regularly, not just in the morning with meditation. By simply checking in with myself throughout the day, I feel my heart beating in stillness, and in that moment, I remember what it feels like to “be” in my center. While I am in no hurry to retire, I do see that balance is a key element to living a fulfilling life now and in the future as well. Excuse me, as I am going to the beach!

April showers bring May flowers! This is true if you have planted seeds ahead of time and cultivated the garden. Give some thought to what kinds of seeds you have planted in your mind lately. Are they thoughts of hope, beauty and gratitude or thoughts of worry, fear and indecision? Positive thoughts are like flowers that bring delight, while negative thoughts are like weeds that choke one’s life force out. Spring is an excellent time to set new goals and nurture loving acts of kindness towards others and yourself. Every time you choose love over fear a rainbow triumphs over a rain cloud!

A special vortex of energy will be created and established to clear away the veils of separation and connect all who participate with their Higher Selves, spirit guides and angelic helpers. I feel so blessed to be a facilitator of this sacred union of Self, Souls and Spirit.

When I was 6 years old, I discovered a special little book in the school library called “Love is a Special Way of Feeling. This sweet book taught me that love is felt in the very simple acts of kindness that we show each other and in our appreciation of nature. Delicately drawn pictures complemented the endearing text.Love was simple and uncomplicated. Then I grew up and love became dramatic and intense. Attachment, expectations, rejection and betrayal colored my thoughts about love. Now as I enter my prime years, I have come full circle to the truth that love really is in the simple things in life and in the splendor of nature in all her glory.
