Transforming Consciousness Through Compassion

Psychic Viewpoint

If you keep up with the daily news, you may think the world is becoming increasingly uncaring and people don’t show compassion for each other anymore. Instead of focusing on the drama playing out in the national press, consider shifting your focus towards what is going on around you.

What is compassion exactly? Merriam-Webster dictionary defines compassion as: “sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it.” That may seem like a tall order to fill. Know that you are not expected to change the world. By lending a helping hand, a listening ear, a genuine smile or a caring touch, you are being compassionate, and those simple acts can create transformational change in yourself and in others. After all, we don’t know what battles someone else has been through before interacting with us, so it’s best to take the path of caring and kindness when we can.

“We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.”  – Ronald Reagan

What does compassion have to do with the psychic realm? By letting go of judgement and increasing our level of awareness by tuning into others, it’s possible to reach a higher level of consciousness and become empathic.

A Word on Empathy and Empaths

Feeling empathy towards others allows us to feel and show compassion. Empathy is also a well-known term in the psychic world. Empathy, also called clairsentience (clear feeling) means taking the time to understand someone by establishing an emotional bond, even a temporary one, so you can sense the person’s feelings and emotions. Once you are able to connect with another person in this way, it’s easier to transition to the next step: psychic impressions. A true empath can feel everything, including the physical and psychological pain of plants, animals and people around them. Of course, no one wants to be empathic all the time. To prevent feeling the emotions of others 24/7, take time to shield yourself daily by visualizing a bubble of white light around you. Ground yourself by picturing roots growing from the bottoms of your feet that travel deeply into the soil. Take deep breaths before stepping out of your front door to face the world. And when you come across feelings that you are unsure of, ask yourself, “Are these my feelings or do they belong to someone else?” You should get an answer.

Controlling empathic capabilities is a great way to increase your own psychic awareness.  For more information on controlling the empath in you visit:

Take the first step towards increased awareness by becoming more compassionate in daily life.

  • Establish a daily ritual, such as meditation, taking a walk, and/or setting an intention where you contemplate compassion.
  • On a regular basis, express gratitude to yourself and others.
  • Practice empathy by first being aware of your own pain. Recognizing it in yourself will help you see it in others.
  • Acknowledge your similarities with others.
  • Understand the various problems inherent in individuals, animals, and nations.
  • Consider the regular practice of lovingkindness. For example, smile or say kind words as often as possible, even with strangers.

Give it Some Time

Deciding to be more compassionate doesn’t mean the change will occur immediately. While some people have a natural ability to maintain a compassionate focus in life, it is a learned ability for most of us. Give yourself time to adjust.  For myself, I volunteer my time with several organizations; this helps shift my focus beyond my own needs towards the needs of others.

Opportunities to be compassionate with others go hand-in-hand with increased awareness. Increase your awareness by …

Appreciating the beauty of the moment. Enjoying quietude.
Understanding the great qualities that make you uniquely you.
Accepting what you cannot change. Releasing control.
Letting go of the outcome. Keeping the right focus.
Understanding the connectedness of Body-Mind-Spirit.
Feeling love. Sending Love.
Taking the time to breathe deeply.
Forgive yourself and others for past experiences that prevent you from enjoying your life

Activate Your Awareness

Recently, a gentleman at my gym noticed me and made eye contact, as if he was seeing me for the first time. I had noticed him before as I like to be aware of my surroundings when I work out. As he walked by I noticed something wasn’t quite right. It dawned on me that he was exhibiting the first signs of a heart attack; he just didn’t know it yet. I called one of the trainers over and asked him to help him. I said, it looks like he’s having a heart attack. At that moment, the man became pale, sat down and started sweating. The trainer called an ambulance.

While I don’t know the outcome to the story, I am hopeful that early intervention helped him. Had I not been aware of my surroundings and “in the moment,” I may have missed the opportunity to extend a helping hand. This experience and others keep me going in the right direction.


Psychic Fun: Raising Your Vibrational Level

To raise your vibrational level you need to get out of your own way. Simply put, it’s difficult to get past “ground zero,” if your thoughts and feelings dominate your mind and heart. Empty your mind by taking deep breaths. Ground yourself then focus on something simple like a candle flame or by saying the word ohm over and over (or a word of your choosing). Your body will let you know if a change or shift is occurring. You may experience a quickening heart rate, beads of sweat on your forehead or a sense of free-falling (Don’t worry, you have a parachute). You may experience a moment of panic as the sensation is unfamiliar. Know that it will be OK, you are simply experiencing an expanded state of consciousness. 

Parallel Universes and Multiple Versions of You

Psychic Viewpoint

Have you ever looked up at the sky and wondered, “Is there someone from a faraway planet in another galaxy that is just like me?”

The idea may not be as farfetched as it seems.

The universe in its totality is evolving at an exponential rate as energy in its inflationary state converts to matter and radiation, forming new planets, stars and whole galaxies that may be similar or different than our own. We cannot see these new galaxies because they are light years away. Also, our galaxy does not interact with or collide into these new galaxies because of the waves of inflation in between, according astrophysicist and author Ethan Siegel.

One Parallel Universe or Many?

If the forming of particles of matter and radiation from energy creates new planetary systems, is it also possible that the same pattern can be repeated to create another earth, or are we truly unique?

Scientists have been searching for an answer to that question, and they may have found it. Three years ago, scientists discovered Kepler-186f, about 500 light years away from earth. Dubbed “Earth’s cousin,” the planet is 10 percent bigger than earth, has less intense sunshine and is likely cooler than earth.

So if there are other earth-like planets, could the planets be populated with people that look and act like us?

A Word on Doppelgängers

Has anyone ever said to you, “You know who you look like? You look exactly like (my cousin, this friend, that actor ….). Most of us have had the experience at one point or another. One type of “twin” is a Dopplegänger, which to me means look alike. Have you ever seen someone that looks just like you? If you are curious about the possibility, check out, which allows you to upload your photo to see if there is a possible match.

A friend spotted “me” once in a magazine. She tossed the magazine to me and said, “You are on page 68.” I’ll never forget looking at the image and thinking, “That can’t be me, but she DOES look a lot like me.” The experience was a little scary but exciting at the same time. I thought about what her life must be like and how it differed from my own. We looked the same but led very different lives.

Another time, I had a college roommate who was a bit of a grumpy sourpuss. One day, I left her behind in the dorm room and headed to a nearby food hall for lunch. Who should I see there but someone that looked EXACTLY like my roommate (who was still in the dorm). This lady was smiling and laughing and had a completely different personality. I never did get a chance to tell my roommate as she left college shortly thereafter. I always wondered, did she ever get the chance to meet her other self?

Is it possible that there are multiple copies of you in the universe? Theoretical astrophysicist Suketu Bhavsar says that the possibility exists based on the multiverse theory. Then there is the story of Santana Gutierrez of California. Turns out she has multiple Dopplegängers throughout the world!

Another meaning of Dopplegänger, this time from ancient Egyptian mythology and Norse mythology, is spirit double or ghostly double. This “energy” double may share your thoughts and feelings or even take action for you in advance.

Law of Attraction speaker Abraham-Hicks had this to say about aligning with the energy version of you:

The non-physical part of you looks ahead and evolves alongside you. Living in the present moment gives you the thrill of the experience along with your energy version because it allows you to tune into that “higher self” and become aligned with who you truly are.

Psychic Fun: Testing Your Abilities

Find a place where you can sit undisturbed. Take deep breathes to calm yourself. Breathe in for a count of four. Hold for a count of four. Breathe out for a count of four. Hold for a count of four. Do the breathing exercise a few times until you feel relaxed. To maintain a meditative state, focus on your breath.

Have a pen and a piece of paper ready.

WITHOUT THINKING write down 3 predictions and put dates on them. I would not go much farther in the future than a month. These can be simple predictions such as: I will be eating dinner out with (name of friend) on Saturday (date), I will find a $20 bill by Friday (date).  If you hear a lot of chatter in your brain – commence with the deep breathing again.

If writing down predictions is too much of a challenge, do deep breathing then let your mind wander, again WITHOUT THINKING, and write down impressions of what you see. Water rising (may indicate a flood), Water lapping on the shore (may indicate a beach trip), seeing an unusual animal walk up to you (may represent a spirit animal), etc.

Put the predictions underneath a mattress and pull them out in a month and see how you did. The most important thing to remember when doing psychic channeling is to dislocate yourself from yourself and serve as a channel rather than an interpreter of what you see. Good luck!

Life’s Experiences Can Be Wondrous When You Let Go of the Outcome

The Pilgrimage

Recently, I attended a Gathering of Nations in Canada to gain a greater understanding of my Native American Heritage. In preparation, I searched for written documentation and historic records kept by my family to back up my claim of being a direct descendant of two “princesses” from two Canadian tribes. I had their first names, the names of the tribes, and the areas of Canada they came from. My grandmother told me before she passed that the gift of healing was passed to me by one of these ancestors.

Following an exhaustive search, I realized the scant information I did have was all I was going to get. I had to let go of the definition of who I was and where I came from and be present for whatever experiences came my way.

After landing in Detroit, I rented a car and drove to the Canadian border. I was stopped at the border, questioned extensively, and underwent a search of the car I was driving. The same thing happened when I crossed the border again from Canada to Detroit upon leaving. It seems to me the border patrol doesn’t appreciate anyone visiting an Indian Nation that has never been occupied by anyone other than Native Americans. And while I cannot say I was embraced by everyone on the island – I am a “white” person with no tribal affiliation card after all – that did not stop me from having an incredible learning experience, which included the following:

  • The wild animals were unafraid and came to me unbidden – even offering a gift (a freshly killed salamander called a Mud Puppy).
  • Paddling a freshly handmade birchbark canoe can be a spiritual experience.
  • Healing the Native American way involves prayer, healing herbs and singing.
  • Sharing a peace pipe as an offering of gratitude around a Sacred Fire during the daily sunrise ceremony grounds you and brings you closer to God.
  • Native drumming ceremonies and Pow Wow dances can make the bones vibrate while connecting everyone as a group.
  • The Potawatomi were known as seers and shapeshifters but many had lost the knowledge (My Ah Ha! Moment).
  • Not all Native Americans embrace the idea of WiFi, casinos and hotels as a means of supporting their way of life.
  • Organic gardening is more than steering clear of pesticide use. Organic gardening means re-purposing things including seeds, soil, and old odds and ends, while using plants as herbs for cooking as well as medicine.

My most important experience by far was an opportunity to gain insights from a Medicine Man who allowed me to hold the carved amulet he uses for protection. Holding the amulet was both frightening and intriguing at the same time. The Medicine Man was more forthcoming than others I had talked to and provided the insight I needed. He told me I needed to find a teacher as he did (still searching) and learn to speak the language. He provided information about my guides – both Spirit and Animal – and said I was selected by the ancestors to serve as a healer and seer (psychic) because of the “the way I am with people.”

The experience was so much more than anything I could conceive in my mind, simply because I let go of my presumptions and experienced the moments as they unfolded.

Another Life-Changing Experience

Another life-changing moment came recently during the Total Solar Eclipse.

Having never seen a Total Solar Eclipse before, I headed with my partner to the North Georgia Mountains. We set up camp at the base of Yonah Mountain then traveled to Lake Chatuge in Hiawassee the next day. There I was among a small gathering of 20 strangers experiencing a once in a lifetime event.

There was not a cloud in sight. The duration of totality was 2 minutes and 27 seconds. Silence fell over us as we gazed up into the sky awestruck as the moon glided in front of the sun, leaving behind a yellow ring of fire. My seven-month-old puppy barked in confusion as the day went dark at 2:35 p.m. in the afternoon.

In that short period of time, so many feelings and sensations passed through me. I shouted out in exhilaration as the moment happened and felt permeated with the energy of both the moon and the sun at once. I realized how powerful the sun truly is and how much I depend on it. I understand now how little I know about life that lies beyond our solar system, and how blessed I was to be there to experience the moment.

Psychic Fun: Seeing Life and Death in Photographs
This test will take some practice on your part. Collect a group of photographs of people familiar to you.

Take a few minutes to breathe deeply and clear your mind.

Pick up one of the photographs and allow your gaze to rest on the outer edges of the hair of the individual before you. Allow your focus to relax. After a minute or two you will notice what appears to be a shimmer of light around the person – almost like a halo. The halo is the energy or aura of the person, which indicates the person is alive (a life force). Now look at a photograph of someone you know that has passed away. You will notice after a few moments that a halo of light does not surround the individual.

Once you are able to do this with a high percentage of accuracy, request the help of a friend. Ask the friend not to tell you who is alive and who is dead in the photographs. See how you do and record your findings. Once you become fairly accurate with this test, you can take the process a little deeper and provide psychic impressions about the individual.

Magic Around Us: Do Fairies Exist?

Psychic Viewpoint

In the not so distant past, children were encouraged to “go outside and play” until we were called for dinner. We would participate in outdoor games with friends, or we would use the imagination to conjure up magical creatures, invisible playmates, forts and castles.

As adults, we choose to set aside the magic of our youth as “playful notions” in order to make a living and raise our families, while striving to maintain good health and well-being.

But what if there really is magic in nature, and we just need to slow down a little bit to see it? While angels can make themselves visible as spots of light around us, there may be something even more magical right in front of us.

Are Fairies Real?
Some may argue that fairies do not exist; they are simply a figment of the imagination. However, if photographic images can verify the existence of ghosts and angels, is it possible that fairies can be photographed too? The first visual example of fairies – the Cottingley Fairies of England – was debunked as a fake (with the exception of the last photograph). Years later, John Hyatt, a lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University, presented the “Rossendale Fairies.” These winged creatures look nothing like flies, moths, butterflies, or dragonflies. See the images here:

Were the images actually glowing insects or were they magical creatures? In another video, the video producer includes example images of unusual creatures from multiple sources and locations to further illustrate the possibility of magic around us: Another image compilation from Planet Dove may even reactivate your sense of wonder – and prompt you to ask: “Are these insects or tiny beings?”

Synchronous Fireflies Nantahala, North Carolina
Summer can be a magical time, especially if you enjoy watching fireflies (lightning bugs) at night. Several years ago, I had the opportunity to camp for the weekend across the way from the Nantahala (River) Outdoor Center. While listening to the night sounds around me, I looked up and watched in awe as thousands of fireflies moved in waves across the sky. I chose not to attempt to capture the experience with a photograph; instead, I enjoyed nature’s light show. Here is an image I found that is closest to matching what I saw:

What in the World Was That?
During a 2016 visit to South Georgia, I was walking along a sunlit path through a wooded area when I came across an unusual sight of unidentified flying insects? around me. What makes the experience so unique is that they appeared to be differing species, and they glowed. I’ve looked through a lot of insect books since that day, and I have yet to find a match for what I had seen. I like to think that magic was afoot that day.

Creating Magic in Your Own Backyard
Perhaps you don’t believe in fairies, or maybe you do. Either way, stepping outside to enjoy a quiet moment in nature – even if it’s in your own backyard or in a nearby park – offers many health benefits. Connecting with nature is the key.

Here are a couple of ways to attract nature or maybe even fairies. Hang a bird feeder outside of a window, or, if you have land, why not build a fairy house? Consider planting flowers – to feed the bees, butterflies and hummingbirds – or a Hawthorn Tree, which is native to Georgia and reportedly a fairy favorite.



Psychic Fun: Predicting the Future

This experiment will require you to set aside a little “non-thinking” time. Take out a pen and piece of paper. Put the date and time at the top, then sit comfortably and take a few deep breaths while visualizing white light coming into the top of your head as if it is being poured into you with a funnel.

Once you feel that your heart rate has slowed down, and you feel an overall sense of calm, pick up the pen and write down some simple predictions WITHOUT THINKING. Start with 10-20 predictions such as: who will call you next, the return address for the next letter you will receive in the mail, who will knock on your door, who will approach you first at work and what the person will be wearing, etc. Once you’ve completed the list, set it aside. If the prediction is accurate then give it a check mark. Count all the check marks in the end to see how well you did.

It’s OK not to get it right the first time. Practice makes perfect. Good luck!
