How to Know When It’s Time to Grow

Psychic Viewpoint

Have you ever wondered why some friends just drift away? Or why some situations end through no fault of your own?


Time to Go

In 2004, my guides suggested a move back to Atlanta was needed. In response, I ignored my guides.

Three years later, my job and relationship ended abruptly. It was time to leave the mountains I dearly loved and return to the city, so I rented a U-Haul, packed up my animals and worldly possessions, gave my boat to my ex and headed south.

I hadn’t lived in Atlanta for many years. How would I make it there after living in the mountains for so long?

As I was driving that big U-Haul towards Atlanta, I asked myself: “What do you want to do?” I answered: “Fiber optics are cool. I’d like to get into the field of fiber optic technology.”

The wish was a far cry from my life experience up to that point. However, I didn’t tell myself it was unrealistic; I just threw my wish out to the universe and didn’t think about it again.

A year later I received a phone call: “Could you come in for an interview? We are looking for someone with (your) background to join our team.” I knew in that moment that my wish had been answered.

“Use the talents you possess; for the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except the very best.” – My Grandmother, Cleo Delaney

My point with this story is the universe guides us to a path of new opportunities that we can ignore or embrace. In fact, the universe will give us signs to literally push us in the right direction, says Meghan Olsgard, author of

“The universe gives us signs through people, events and circumstances without us even realizing that we are asking.” – Meghan Olsgard

So how do you determine if it’s time to make a move?

Is your inner voice telling you to check out a specific place? Are you tired of the weather and want something better? Are you trapped in nostalgia or have bad memories associated with where you are living now? Have your goals changed?

The signs are there if you are willing to listen. For more tips on the subject of moving visit:


Why Did My Relationship Have to End?

Oftentimes my clients ask about relationships. My guides usually indicate whether the relationship is over or salvageable. If it is salvageable, my guides will offer tips on how to get the relationship off of life support and onto firmer footing.

But why do relationships have to end?

There are many answers. Essentially, people grow and change at different rates. One person may change in a relationship and the other person may remain the same. The relationship may fade away or end abruptly as a result. You may try to resurrect the relationship, but things seem to keep getting in the way. So how do you know when it’s time to move on once you’ve initially parted ways? If you can answer in the affirmative to the following, it’s time to let the relationship go, according to

  • You don’t miss them.
  • They drain your energy.
  • They hold you back.
  • You make up reasons to avoid them.
  • You have nothing in common.
  • You disagree on a fundamental level.
  • You’re always looking for new friends.
  • You wouldn’t be friends if you met now.
  • You are holding a grudge.
  • It’s become one-sided.
  • You find them negative.
  • You only hang out together in groups of people.


There is Still Hope Once You Let Go

While no one wants to be alone because a relationship or other situation you’ve enjoyed has ended, all hope is not lost. Jack Canfield, motivational speaker and co-author of the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series, says sometimes you have to go through hard situations to be where you are supposed to be.

“Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” … “When you’ve figured out what you want to ask for, do it with certainty, boldness and confidence.” – Jack Canfield, speaker and author


Your Higher Guides are With You Always

Whether you call on God, your angels, or seek spiritual help in another way, your guidance is always a manifestation of the Divine in you, says Aletheia Luna and Mateo Sol, authors of

“Even obstacles and roadblocks can be sacred signs from the universe and gifts in disguise, helping us to realign with our true-life paths.” – Aletheia Luna and Mateo Sol

Your guides may step in – not to harm you – but to gently guide you onto the right path. If you are stubborn like me, you may be told to stop what you are doing in a number of ways including losing things, experiencing delays or feeling sick or anxious. Instead of getting frustrated, consider asking the question: Am I on the right path? Then check in on the physical level. How do you FEEL? Thank the universe for the heads up, try laughing at the roadblocks, and meditate on the situation.


Making a Change

So how do you shift from feeling sad, lonely or frustrated to feeling more optimistic about a situation that has ended? Express gratitude for the positive things in your life, find something to laugh about, listen to something that motivates you, or take a walk.

I find that listening to uplifting meditative music is always helpful, such as Positive Aura Cleanse – Music for Body and Spirit. Above all, be patient with yourself. It’s OK to be sad when something has ended. Change isn’t easy, but change we must.

The Power of Qi and Your Health

Psychic Viewpoint

The coronavirus pandemic continues to impact and change the way we work, live and socialize with others. As we cannot return to our old way of life, perhaps it’s time to accept and adapt to a new way of living. Fostering a stronger mind-body-spirit connection is a great place to start.


Listening to Our Bodies

The human body generally knows what it needs to feel better. Sometimes it’s sunshine, other times it’s rest. Or we may just be hungry. While sweets and snacks can ease immediate hunger pangs, they don’t do much to improve overall health and longevity.


The Godfather of Fitness

Around the turn of the century, a young teenager named Jack LaLanne was eating himself sick. His mom realized she had to do something quick, so she took him to a lecture by Paul Bragg, who was an advocate for healthy food and fitness. Jack LaLanne said a prayer the night after the lecture and asked God to give him the strength to stay away from junk food, as he believed it was killing him.

That prayer was a turning point. LaLanne studied the human body and became a fitness buff. In time, he became an Olympic athlete, started a fitness studio, became a chiropractor, invented equipment to exercise specific muscles of the body, and ultimately had a national TV show which encouraged people to “Get off your seat and on to your feet.”

He was the first to comprehend the value of juicing together raw fruits and vegetables and considered it to be a “fountain of youth.” Powered by a combination of healthy food and exercise, Jack LaLanne performed amazing athletic feats for many years and lived to the ripe old age of 96.


Going Back to the Farm

Farmers have always understood the importance of eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. Meat, too, was procured from animals on the farm.

Diets were much less complex than they are now. Today, many of us eat processed foods that don’t provide the nutrients we need to be healthy.

“If you can’t pronounce the names of the ingredients (in food), don’t eat it.”  – J. Michael Zenn, “The Self Health Revolution”

Eating a lot of fresh greens, especially vegetables and fruit, is a great way to improve overall health. I started juicing together fruits, nuts, vegetables and herbs in June. I can honestly say I feel better: my eyesight has improved; I have more stamina, and I feel stronger than I did a few short months ago.

Eating the right food is important, but it’s only part of the good health equation. Exercising outdoors offers benefits too, as does meditation, deep breathing, and energy activation.


Life Force Energy

Every living being has “life force” energy. In Chinese culture that energy is called qi or chi (pronounced chee). By keeping our qi balanced, we can maintain good health, which makes it harder for sickness to take root.


Qi Activation

The easiest way to understand what qi feels like is to create an energy ball between your hands. Place your hands in front of you at the sternum level with palms facing each other but not touching. Slowly pull your hands apart while inhaling. Slowly push your hands together while exhaling. After a short while you should feel energy moving back and forth between your hands as your hands get closer together. For a video demonstration check out Qi Gong Energy Ball Training for Beginners.

There are other ways to experience qi energy activation as well. Acupuncture is one way to release qi and clear energy flow blockages, as energy blockages are believed to be a contributing factor to illness. Another method of moving energy is through a process I call “waking up the body.” Still another method is learning how to recognize and control qi energy through Qigong, which is a form of meditative practice.

“Developing your chi can be a way to heal your body – both physically and mentally – as well as a path to reaching your full potential.” –


Rebalancing the Yin and Yang Flow Through Acupuncture and Other Practices

Acupuncture practitioners, according to the Mayo Clinic, are able to re-balance energy flow (qi) by inserting needles along specific pathways (meridians), which unblocks the qi so it can move again. There are more than 2,000 acupuncture points connecting these pathways. When the energy is balanced and flowing, we experience a marked improvement in overall health.

For those who don’t like needles, there is a more direct approach to activating qi energy. By tapping the body in a pattern you can create and encourage energy flow. Qigong Tapping for Beginners, is a great video that offers a step-by-step method to energize the body.

Another video, Qi Gong by Ksney, offers easy-to-follow instructions combining body tapping and breath work to activate qi energy.


Moving Qi to Address Pain

Have you ever been in a situation where you needed to attend to a body ache but you were not in a place to do so (such as a church or meeting room)? By learning to work with qi energy in your body, you can address pain points without moving at all.

Several years ago, I had the opportunity to participate in seated QiGong meditation practice weekly over the course of a year. While it is challenging to stay seated in a specific position without moving for one hour, we learned how much influence the mind has over the body. Through micro-movements of the body, we were able to address the pain of holding the position, without actually moving at all. Additionally, we learned how to move qi around the body, which was as fascinating as it was helpful. If you are interested in receiving a copy of the audio QiGong meditation I have, please contact me by email, and I will make it available to you.

Life may never be the same as it once was. And while the impact of the virus should fade over time, our best defense is to be as healthy as we can be to fight off the potential for infection. By incorporating healthy eating habits, getting outside for a good dose of sunshine, activating our qi and exercising to the extent we can, we can feel better and make it more difficult for illness to get a head start.

Dream Maker: The Inspirational Story of Charlie Rocket

Psychic Viewpoint

Recently, I was walking my dog around the neighborhood when I noticed a large, colorful RV parked at the high school. The vehicle was named “Charlie Rocket’s Dream Machine.” I took a closer look and noticed that people of all ages had taken the time to write messages describing their hopes and dreams. The vehicle was covered with statements that were sweet, inspirational, meaningful and endearing.

I thought to myself, who is Charlie Rocket? That’s when I noticed a black Mercedes with dark-tinted windows parked directly behind the RV.

I couldn’t see inside the car so I knocked on the window. The driver gave me an unfriendly look as he rolled down the window. I was unfazed by the man’s expression. I asked him, “Do you know Charlie Rocket?” A young man in the passenger’s seat smiled at me, held up his hand and said, “That’s me!”

I told him how inspired I was by all of the messages of hope I had read on his RV. I asked him, “What made you decide to do this?”

Charlie stepped out of the vehicle and told me his story.


Hometown Boy Makes Good

Charlie wanted to be a high school athlete more than anything, but he believed he was too overweight to participate.  Instead, he would focus his energy on another goal. He would become a famous CEO.

After graduating high school, Charlie realized college was not a good fit, so he decided to leave and try his hand in the Atlanta music scene. While success was not immediate – he was fired twice! – Charlie refused to give up on his dream. In 2010 he formed a music management company, Street Execs, and signed multiple hip-hop artists, which eventually brought him the fame and fortune he craved.

During this same period of time, Charlie’s weight continued to yo-yo back and forth. He found himself binge-eating at night. At his heaviest, he tipped the scales at 305 pounds. Even more concerning than the weight gain: a long dormant childhood brain tumor had begun to grow.

One day, the fast food restaurant employee he saw most days told him: “You’ve got to stop coming here.” Charlie was shocked. Afterall, who turns away a regular customer? It was a wake-up call. Time to make a change.

Charlie realized that money meant nothing without his health, so he gave up his multi-million-dollar business, changed his diet and moved to California. Once there, he was challenged by a friend to become a marathon runner, which he did. In 2017, Charlie made a contract to himself. In that contract he listed goals he hoped to reach including his lifelong goal of becoming a world-class athlete. Not only did Charlie make the commitment to himself. He told his friends and family about his goals too. He would look at his contract to himself daily.

“When I made the shift from dreaming big to believing big everything changed.” – Charlie “Rocket” Jabaley

Charlie ran several marathons and completed an ironman triathlon competition. He realized his story might inspire others too, so he decided to ride a bicycle from Los Angeles to New York. He called it the Dream Machine Tour.

Charlie’s inspiring story has touched lives throughout the country and around the world. He has been on national and local news programs. He has appeared on magazine covers and was featured in a Nike national ad campaign too.

Charlie’s goal has always been to make a change in the world. Today, he hopes to inspire 1 million people. He’s taken his show on the road and is driving his colorful RV across America to give people hope and inspiration along the way. He believes his story isn’t over yet, and your story shouldn’t be over yet either. He said instead of dreaming about what you want, write it down. Tell others. Be personally accountable so you can make it happen.

Sky Cat and Other Weird Tales from the Suburbs

Psychic Viewpoint

Birds, reptiles, animals, fish – wild and domestic – communicate with me. For example, a dog may walk up to me and say hello, surprising the owner. I’ve served as a healing channel, which may be the reason for the connection, or they may just “know” I can communicate with them psychically, or they may remember me from another lifetime.

Recently, I’ve been having animal experiences that have been good, somewhat unsettling, and just plain bizarre.


Just Passing Through

A little over a week ago I was looking through my kitchen window and could not believe what I saw in the front yard. It was a large snapping turtle (about the size of a dinner plate).  Snapping turtles live in ponds, swamps or near water. There is no lake, pond or creek at my house, which prompted me to ask, “What in the world is a snapping turtle doing in my front yard?”

I believe he came to me for help.

I knew just what I had to do.

I grabbed a plastic pet carrier and had my partner pick up the turtle by the back of its shell and place it carefully in the carrier. I called my friend who has a spring-fed creek behind her house and asked her if I could bring the turtle over. Once I reached the creek, I set down the carrier, opened the door, and she and I watched as the turtle slipped out of the carrier and disappeared into the muddy creek bottom.

Not only did the turtle need help, he was sending a message.

According to Ted Andrews, author of Animal Speak, turtles represent the connection between heaven and earth and represent the doorway to the Faerie Realm.  The turtle helps us awaken our senses – both physical and spiritual – meaning all senses including psychic (sixth sense) become stronger. It also meant I needed to slow down so I could see the abundance around me.

I expressed my thanks for the information and began making a greater effort to become more grounded and attuned.

“Turtle reminds us that all we need for all that we do is available to us, if we approach it in the right manner and time.” – Ted Andrews, Animal Speak


The Ravens

Ravens have been coming around often lately. I am striving to understand them better.

Once before a reading, a raven landed in a backyard tree just beyond the back steps and cawed at me while looking down. I followed his gaze and noticed a low-lying gray cloud at ground level. I knew instinctively the cloud represented someone’s addiction, and the addicted individual had passed away. I was able to share with his dad that he was finally free of heroin.

The raven is “the keeper of synchronicity. He is the master of bending and folding time and space.” Those with the raven as a totem “seek stillness and quiet … and will bring messages for others. As a result, the spirit world uses you as a bridge to the physical world to bring forth its directives,” per


The Thrasher Family

The brown thrasher is the state bird of Georgia. I’ve named the brown thrasher that lives in my yard “Brownie.”

I’ve always enjoyed chatting with Brownie. One day he disappeared, and a week later, Brownie brought “Mrs. Brownie,” home to my house where they built a nest in the arbor.  I was thrilled, and before long Mrs. Brownie laid three eggs in the new nest.

A few days later, two ravens showed up and made a loud ruckus just above the nest. I also heard what I thought was a hawk.  I ran outside and said, “What the heck is going on?!” At that moment, the ravens left, the hawk left, and unfortunately, the brown thrashers left too.

I thought Mr. and Mrs. Brownie were gone for good. I was crushed as I knew the eggs would not hatch without a bird to incubate them.

I talked to the other birds and asked them to tell the brown thrashers it was safe to come home. It took a few days, but the birds returned to feather their nest.


The Battle Is On

A couple of days ago, I heard the ravens calling out again – they cawed loudly as they flew from tree to tree. I thought, “Not again!” I ran outside to investigate. I asked, “What are you doing ravens?!” At that moment, a huge hawk flew out of a nearby tree. I realized the ravens had chased it away. I heard, “We are the protectors of the realm.” I finally understood they were guarding my backyard from predators. In this case, it was a hawk looking for an animal snack.


Sky Cat

My mom lives alone so I drop in often to say hello or help out. Last Thursday was like any other day except there was a small black kitten by the sidewalk near her front door. I looked to the left, to the right and to the front of the property. My mom doesn’t have a cat and neither do her neighbors. I thought, “What in the world is a little black kitten doing here?” Even more unusual is that kitten was in the one spot I would notice upon walking up to my mother’s front door. It is the one spot that isn’t covered with thick green English ivy.

The kitten was laying flat on his belly. He stared at me and wasn’t moving. I scooped him up, and he began meowing loudly. At that moment, a large shadow passed over me. I looked up to see one of the largest hawks I have ever seen in my life as it swooped low over me and the kitten. It became clear to me the hawk was coming back for the lunch he had dropped! I ran into the house with the kitten and made an appointment to see the veterinarian later in the day. According to the vet, the kitten has nerve damage in a back leg, which is likely where the hawk grabbed it. I am hopeful his leg will heal over time.

The irony in this story is while I’ve always had a black cat, I promised my partner I would not get another one as the loss of my cat Pretty Girl last June was heartbreaking for both of us. But what if a cat drops from the sky, literally at my feet? Shouldn’t I keep it?

I looked through my mom’s video footage to see when the kitten fell from the sky. It appears he showed up 17 minutes before my arrival.

So much for promises. We have a new kitten now. His name is Luke, and he’s one lucky cat!

Psychic Fun: Learn How to Listen Clairvoyantly

Clairaudience, or the ability to listen in a clairvoyant manner (clear-hearing), is an important step to becoming more intuitive.

The voice of angels and spirit guides is usually soft and clear. (Although sometimes, I’ve heard an angel shout to get my attention!)

When spirit is speaking, and we are not ready to listen, we will spend time second-guessing what was heard, and the communication, as well as the meaning of the message, will be lost. However, when we are ready to listen, a whole new world of sounds will open up.

How is the development of this skill helpful? Becoming clairaudient allows you to gain a lot more insight into what the other person is NOT saying. It also enables you to hear the voices of souls who have passed as well as guidance from your spirit guides that is specific to you.

So how do you become a more active listener?

  1. Practice shutting your eyes and listening to everything around you. Really tune in. Listen to the birds, the trees, the cars, the trains, the telephones, people talking, people laughing. Everything. In time, all the crazy noise will become a constant stream. It’s at this point you can hear the music.
  2. Meditate regularly, and if possible, during the same time each day. This is great training as it enables you to listen objectively in a relaxed state without expectations. Daily meditation lets your spirit guides know you are serious about developing your skills too. (A psychic investment!)
  3. Be clear with your intentions. Decide what you want to know from your angels or spirit guides. Put together a list of questions. Find a quiet place, take some deep breaths. Ask a question and wait for an answer. Then truly listen. If you don’t receive an immediate response, don’t give up. Try again another day.

Good Luck!
