This is my fun facts page where I answer questions that you have posted and add any thoughts that I come up with.

Animal Spirit Guides
Animal spirit guides are animals on the other side dedicated to helping us with our journey. Animals have messages for us and may appear at any time. To figure out the message an animal is trying to convey to you I highly recommend the "Animal Spirit Guides" book by Dr. Steven Farmer. Also, you can search for the animal spirit guide on the internet by typing "animal totem such and such" on google. When an animal is seen repetitively or when it makes an impact on us upon seeing it then that animal usually has a message for us. So for example if you're contemplating a change in your life and you see a butterfly then that's validation for you because butterfly represents transformation. We also each have what is called a "power animal" and this is a spiritual animal helper that is dedicated to helping you your whole life rather than an animal spirit guide which may show up temporarily to infuse you with the strength necessary right now.

Intuition is your inner voice and your guidance. It's the gut feeling or that hunch you get. The answer to any question or issue you may have is within. You just need to tune out the noise and tune into the guidance. Intuition is a God-given ability given to all of us not just a selected few. The fastest way to develop your intuition is to meditate. The more you meditate and quiet down the noise around you the easier it will be to receive the messages your guides are constantly trying to give you.

Intuition may come to you in various ways which are:   

  • Clairvoyance is the ability to see the message. People who are clairvoyant may see a scene or an image form in their mind's eye about the situation. Clairvoyance is associated with the third eye. 
  • Clairaudience is the ability to hear the message. People who are clairaudient will hear the answer to the situation or issue. They may also hear voices that others are not able to tune into. This ability is associated with the ear chakras. 
  • Claircognizance is the ability to know the message. People who are claircognizant will just know the answer or the right thing to do. This ability is associated with the crown chakra.
  • Clairsentience is the ability to feel the message. People who are clairsentient will just feel what the right thing to do is. Clairsentience is associated with the heart chakra.I feel that this is associated with the solar plexus as well. This is where gut feelings are felt.
  • Clairgustance is the ability to taste while tuning in. People who are clairgustant will taste a certain type of food or drink when tuning into someone or a culture.
  • Clairscent is the ability to smell while tuning in, People who are clairscent will smell a distinct smell associated with the person they are tuning into or the situation.

The Law of Cause and Effect. I believe the saying of "What goes around comes around" is really the meaning of karma. We are all responsible for our fate or destiny through our thoughts and actions.

Law of Attraction
The law of attraction states that "like attracts like". You are responsible for the way your life unfolds. Your thoughts will create and attract the situations you are in. You are able to manifest what you want in your life as long as your thoughts are supporting you. Clear out the negative thoughts and just focus on what you would like to attract. In addition to this thought, I believe in contracts which are lessons we have contracted for ourselves prior to incarnating. I have plenty of people tell me that they are trying to attract a certain situation but it just doesn't happen and that may be due to the contracts that were in place prior to even being born. I feel that you'll recognize what's a contract versus a self-manifested situation.

Edgar Cayce, possibly the most noted and famous American psychic, responds to what is a meditation? "It is not musing, not daydreaming; but as we find our bodies made up of the physical, mental and spiritual; it is the attuning of the mental body and the physical body to its spiritual source."
He also says "Prayer is supplication for direction, for understanding. Meditation is listening to the divine within" In other words prayer is talking to God while meditation is listening for the answer.
I view meditation as the act of being mindful or allowing yourself to be present. Any time I give myself the opportunity to meditate I am allowing my body and senses to take a break from all outside stimulus and go within.
In simplest terms, meditation is the practice of quieting our physical bodies and our minds and focusing our attention inward instead of upon the world around us.

"The divine in me recognizes and honors the divine in you" 
Spoken or silent this greeting is performed while bringing both your hands together in prayer position to your heart and bowing your head down slightly.

Spirit Guides
Spirit guides are beings chosen by us to help us along our journey on Earth. Everyone has spirit guides. They do not interfere in our lives unless we ask for their help. Psychics receive their messages from their spirit guides. Spirit guides have lived on Earth and therefore are empathetic towards the human journey and the emotion we feel.
