Here is a perfect example of someone who has a realistic view of success, who is using his challenges to grow into the person he is meant to be, and who has taken charge of his future by following his dreams. Enjoy this post!

The other day a friend said, “Don’t forget us little people when you become a rich and famous writer.” To which, I replied, “I am a little people and I’ll never forget where I came from.” What prompted this warning? A discussion, actually more of a query, from a group of friends who were sharing their successes in life. When the wheel spun my way, I simply alluded to the fact that I have been writing a book and I hope to have it completed in a few months and when it is finished I plan to begin my next manuscript.

I am confident; at some point in my writing career, I will become well known. Notice, I did not say rich and famous. I figure if I pound out two books a year for the remainder of my life, which is what I intend to do – my personal…

Psychic Powers

Mention psychic power to most people and you get the message they don’t want to talk about it. Talk about psychic ability and you are likely to be dismissed with a laugh. Google “psychic powers,” “psychic ability,” or “psychic awareness” and you will see hundreds of thousands of results featuring everything from psychic readers to lessons on developing your psychic abilities.

There are almost 50,000 Google global searches per month for the term, “psychic ability.”  Even though this is a low number, searches for learning about psychic ability are even lower. Global searches per month for the terms “how to develop psychic ability,” and “how to improve psychic ability” range from fewer than 1,000 to a little more than 1,000 searches a month. The results of these searches range in the hundreds of thousands, meaning that there are hundreds of thousands of resources out there for developing or improving psychic awareness, but few people are taking advantage of these resources. I interpret this as a reflection of the fear most of us still associate with anything psychic.

Let me tell you something – whether you know it or not and whether you like it or not, you are psychic. Everybody is psychic. Being psychic is no big deal. I think the big deal is how we look at psychic ability. Denying your psychic ability is like denying you have a brain.

The Fear Factor

The combination of power mongers since ancient times passing on their rules of entitlement and our dependence on physical science (talk about co-dependence) to tell us what’s right and what’s wrong, has compromised our ability to trust ourselves.

I’m not against physical science. There’s no question that humanity has gained immensely from physical science. And we stand to gain even more as quantum physics reveals more and more about the invisible realities of life.

I’m not worried about power mongers. They are losing their grip on humanity. Just look at world events of the past few years. As we gain the courage to develop our full potential, we will learn to listen to our psychic promptings and direct our lives with confidence.

What Do Psychic Powers Look Like?

Psychic powers have a boundless range of qualities. They can look anything like the little something that tells you where to find a parking place to the dream about a future event that comes true.

The general assumption is that unless you are a professional psychic prophesying dramatic events, you are not psychic. The truth is, the only difference between professional psychics and you is that they receive clear impressions and trust them. It’s their expertise. It’s their calling.

Being a psychic advisor or an intuitive counselor is like any other profession; like being a master carpenter, for instance. Certain people are called to the art and craft of fine carpentry. They love doing custom cabinetry, building furniture; it fulfills them and they are good at it. The rest of us aren’t interested in being a master carpenter, but that doesn’t mean we can’t hang a picture or build a deck on the back of our house.

Psychic ability is more than an art and a skill, however. It’s an inborn quality like your brain waves with the potential to help you live a more fulfilling life. You have the choice to develop your psychic ability. You have the choice to learn which hunches to follow and which not to follow. You have the choice to pay attention to your innate knowledge or to ignore it.

How Do Psychic Powers Serve You?

Your psychic awareness is immensely practical and always there. Remember the last time you were talking to someone who tried to convince you he was just fine when you had the sense that he was upset about something, or the time someone was handing you a line of bull when you knew instinctively she was lying? We were born psychic to help us navigate the tricky tides of life.

I wrote four articles about psychic awareness that will give you more information about your powerful life-enhancing abilities; your gifts of clairsentience, clairvoyance, prophecy, and clairaudience. You can learn a lot about yourself from them. If you’ve already read these pieces, you may want to read them again, maybe with a different point of view this time.

I hope this article helped you see psychic powers as a natural part of who you are. Your thoughts?

Live your purpose every day.

This post from nyparrot’s blog that will make you laugh out loud. Enjoy!


Life is made of tragicomically controversial moments. One man’s painful fall may cause a bystander to burst into an inappropriate laugh. While in stitches ridiculing the clumsiness of a stranger, the bystander himself may slip on a banana skin and fall hard… Though hurting really badly – through all the moaning – he’d start laughing even harder. Why? Because he sees the irony in what happened to him.

Seeing the funny side of life and things is a gift. The ability to help others not to take themselves too seriously, to make them lighten up and make a light out of sometimes less than perfect situations, is a talent.

Concerts of a duo of a violinist and singer Aleksey Igudesman and pianist Hyung-Ki Joo ( are full of unexpected twists and turns, as they don’t just deliver a professional performance of musical pieces, but also offer their own…

Reflection and Power in the U.S.A.

Today is our country’s 236th birthday, and today she moves from a Personal Year of 7 to a Personal Year of 8 – two very different vibrations. First, let’s review the past year.


During a 7 Personal Year emphasis is placed on revealing hidden conditions, introspection, mental housecleaning, and spiritual pursuits. Emphasis is also placed on research, study, and developing expertise. These conditions obviously exist in any Personal Year; however, in a 7 year they are emphasized so that if you haven’t made time for mental housecleaning, for example, conditions will present events that will encourage you to evaluate your life in some way. The vibration of a new Personal Year begins its influence up to three months before the Personal Year begins.


Scandal is one way that hidden conditions are revealed. During theU.S.’s 7 Personal Year there were 12 sex scandals involving American Federal politicians; more than in any previous year. In the previous 10 years, there were 20 (approximately 2 per year), in the 10 years previous to that approximately 10, decreasing significantly as we move backwards in time.

Other scandals involving the U.S. government came to light: Solyndra (loaned hundreds of millions and then going bankrupt), Fast and Furious (gun running by the ATF), Secret Service agents (inappropriate behavior while on duty), the GSA using tax-payer money to party on big time, and secret loans by the Federal Reserve to Wall Street aristocracy.

The case against Jerry Sandusky is still in trial, with accusations going back more than 30 years, not to mention the emergence of new sexual abuse cases by Catholic clergy, and the Schwarzenegger scandal.

At the risk of sounding flippant, a great many people missed the opportunity to re-evaluate their lives.

Unfinished Business

The number 7 is about allowing things to evolve naturally rather than using force to accomplish goals. Even though the Supreme Court upheld the healthcare law, so many people feel forced into something they don’t want that this issue is not finished and will be carried over into the number 8 vibration. A more conciliatory and inclusive approach to this whole issue, including a fair restructuring of healthcare in the U.S., may have enabled our leaders to have a solid plan to put in place this year.


Revealing hidden conditions can also provide release from pressure. When Osama bin Laden’s hidden location was discovered, his assassination was considered by many to be a relief on many levels. The repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” released gays in the military from living in secrecy.

Spiritual Awakening

Ed Halliwell’s article in the guardian (U.K.), says that meditation is on the increase in conservative America.

Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan just published “A Mindful Nation,” a how-to book on meditation, which has been called inspiring and pragmatic.

PR Newswire, in an article on meditation inAmerica, talks about a book by Sarah McLean, contemporary meditation expert and author of “Soul-Centered: Transform Your Life in 8 Weeks with Meditation.”

Indications are that we in the U.S. are embarking on a more spiritual way of life by taking steps to reduce stress and become more authentic.

Now let’s move on to our country’s number 8 Personal Year, today being the first day of a completely different vibration.

Number 8 Personal Year for theU.S.A.

This year is about power, energy, force, discipline, and good judgment. It will emphasize action, leadership, and executive ability. It’s a good year for business and financial success if good judgment and discipline are exercised.

The Presidential Election

The next President will be the one who can convince us that he is fiscally responsible, and that he is a man of action with a positive attitude who knows how to run a business. He will inspire confidence if he can be a fair and objective leader who can work with Congress by taking a balanced view of an issue rather than a partisan view.


There will be events which will require use its power wisely in the international arena, standing up for its principles without pushing others around. It is a year to demonstrate leadership in a team environment.

Power can emerge in a negative way inWashingtonthis year, even more than usual. Politicians will have to rein in their egos if they want to be successful.

The Fun Part

The up side is that this is a joyful, active energy with lots of positive accomplishment when people can keep from getting bogged down in unimportant details and in taking things personally.

Happy Birthday, U.S.A! May this year be the best year ever!

Live your purpose every day.
