Psychic Kathleen

Confessions of a Psychic - the life of a psychic practicing off and online in Canada for more than 30 years.
Not that I need much nudging in the direction of nostalgia these days.  The axiom that aging brings a more reflective and reminiscing mind is true.  We can wile away hours in reverie. Or looking up old friends and flames on facebook.  It’s rather lovely but we do have to be mindful of its irresistible allure! 

It’s not advisable by the way…. looking up old flames on facebook.  Rather like opening Pandora’s Box, we might discover things about them we can’t un-know.  Trust me, it’s creepy and almost never rewarding.  A client told me recently how she’d looked up an old flame and learned he’d just died of some horrible disease and she was depressed for days afterwards.
 

The Collective Oppression of the Season

Even if you opt out of most things Christmassy, you’re still going to be inundated with the collective energies that are constellated at this time of year. The person who declares they are unaffected by the whoopla of the Christmas season is the person who is in determined denial.  You absolutely will not escape its mighty grip.  The best policy is to develop a strategy to manage it.
   
For many, Christmas/New Years is so stressful that that feeling tends to blot out any competing others, such as, joy, charity and renewal.  The strain of the financial and social pretense pressures drives many to be neglectful/cruel to their bodies, families and neighbours. 

The holiday season is a great time to practice all those stress reducing intentions we know we should do but always seem to desert us at just the moment we need them most!  If nothing else, build in quality alone time to do simple normal things with people you want to do it with, get plenty of rest and eat your green vegetables.
 

Spend Time Away from the Hot Spots

If you’re spending this season alone, consider spending time at your local public library and community centres. These are peaceful, neutral places for singles to go where you aren’t inundated with musack, shopping, frenetic energy and crowded washrooms. Besides, you might make some new friends brightening the prospect of 2020.

We’ll experience Winter Solstice on December 21st, which in the northern hemisphere translates to the shortest day of the year. 
In the Tarot, the Winter Solstice is represented by the Sun card which depicts the birth of the twin gods of the solar cycle.  The Sun is born from the dark womb of the darkest night in the year, and on that day the hours of sunlight begin to lengthen and the power and strength of the sun begins its rebirth.
 

Unusual Activities in December

Connect with friends you haven't spoken to all year; buy odd stuff; take holidays and celebrate year's end.  It's a joyful, painful, exhilarating, depressing and spiritual time for millions around the world and that energy can be usurped to claim your own renewal and healing.

Be mindful of the language you use to express your feelings and ideas.  Your expressions this month will carry tentacles of unfoldment into your future.  Go for long walks, take pictures, call people you haven’t spoken to in a while – make it special for yourself.

I wish you a safe and spiritual holiday season. The coming month will be ramping up to very high energy in prep for 2020. Astrologically it promises to be a year of tremendous change so this is the perfect opportunity to get prepared.

About 40 years ago, my mother commented/asked my thoughts about the phenomena of having 3 of the same numbers appear on the clock, seemingly every time she looked it.  She described an uncanny jolt at each sighting, especially once she noticed how often it seemed to happen. 

Ashamedly, I admit I mumbled something impassive with a shrugging hint that perhaps we could change the subject.  I had no idea why this business with the clock had so ignited her imagination and of course this was before it started happening to me.

After about the fifth or sixth time of observing this clock event, it seemed as though every time I glanced at a clock, it was reading 1:11 or 2:22 or 3:33 etc.  It happened so often that I just couldn’t ignore it. Indeed getting to a point where I was even expecting it.  Then one day, inexplicably, it just stopped. Every once in the while, a friend or a client would describe this clock sequencing happening to them and  naturally, because I am a spiritual advisor, they hoped to garner some wisdom into the mystery.  Annoyingly, there was little I could offer other than a few of my personal and rather inane ponderings.

Now it’s happening to me again.  As soon as I started noticing it a few weeks ago, I wondered how many times it’s happened to me since my mother first described it. I deeply regret not having paid closer attention to what was going on in my mother’s life at the time.  I know she had become more actively involved in spiritualism and was meeting weekly with a spiritual group about which she was enamoured  Other than this, I can’t recall anything notably out of the ordinary in her life. Nor do I remember what was taking place in my life when it’s happened to me in the past.

On the Right Path

Like any phenomena, there are several theories to explain this experience but none of them feel like a fit for me. Doreen Virtue describes this clock phenomena as messages from the angels. The angels, according to Dr. Virtue, are telling us we are on the right path for our soul to manifest its special, spiritual purpose.  Although I cozy up to this comforting and positive interpretation, it fails to strike an accurate chord. 

Like a dream interpreted correctly, I like to feel a click that a true explanation has been revealed.  For example, what if observing these numbers in sync often is more a warning than an affirmation?   I still have more questions than answers.  What ifs, maybes, and ponderings abound.

When I notice these numbers on my clock, I am abruptly at attention.  I am noticing the time, not simply glancing at it.  What is gripping my attention most acutely, is the numbers themselves.  I consider the meaning of the numbers individually and what their sum might mean. 

When it happens to you, you’ll find yourself unable to ignore it. It will set you off on a path of contemplation, concern and possibly even alarm.  Like seeing an apparition, UFO, or rare beast, your mind scrambles to make sense of it.  You know you are receiving a message, but what the heck is it?  And perhaps that’s the whole point.

My 65th Birthday

At least once a day, I glance at the clock to find myself staring at all the same numbers lined up like ducks in a row.  3 ones, 3 twos, 3 threes etc. 

My 65th birthday is the 21st of this month.  It is a number that has some weight to it.  Although we like to say that we have no attachment to the number we’ve achieved, the truth is that when we hit one of those (ie. 40, 50, 65, and I dare you, contemplate 80!) numbers, it does carry a zing.
 
What’s exciting is that I finally have the benefit of a clue to this clock oddity meaning!  The last time I wrote about this digital clock phenomenon, was just before my 60th birthday.  Obviously, this was the last time I noticed this phenomenon enough to want to write about it.  It presages change.  Maybe it is simply a way to get us to pay attention to time in a way we are failing to do.  Like staring through a fog, I wonder what forms will emerge and whether they will be friend or foe. 

I promised myself that this time I will pay close attention and record what happens now.

The overarching feeling turning 65 is amazement.  Grateful for the depth of love I swim in every day of my life.  My work has deep meaning, my relationships are richly rewarding, and my health is vibrant. What more can a girl of 65 ask for?

"Other readings with Kathleen, whether in person or by telephone, have similarly clarified dilemmas for me, and nudged me along pathways of growth. Her articles and 'teachings' are always exceptional, true to her passionate values reaching out to do as much good in this world as she can. In short, I believe that any sincere client can rely on Kathleen Meadows for fresh and deep insight, grounded in practical wisdom."

Thank you Kit Wilson for your lovely testimonial on google!  Like several of my clients, Kit kindly offered to submit her feedback directly to google reviews to help me counter negative ratings and reviews by people who don't know me nor have ever used my services.  This can be a serious problem for small business whereby google favours negative reviews more highly and yet most negative reviews are submitted by trawlers bored and seeking attention.  It's a cautionary tale to take reviews in general with a grain of salt!

Being chased, falling into an abyss, looking into a mirror and seeing that our appearance has been altered; balancing on a high wire with no safety net, unable to get out of a building or sinking into quicksand are classic nightmare story lines. We may awaken shouting, our heart beating fast and sobbing with terror shortly relieved to discover it was only a nightmare.
 
Nightmares mean that our deeper levels of being, psychologically and possibly physically, are keen to be acknowledged by our conscious/ego Self.   Likely, we’ve been gently, and incrementally nudged that something is not going well, and we’ve been stubbornly ignoring the signs.  Our dream director has taken it upon herself to create a stark scenario replete with setting, characters and action that will jolt us into making a change.  At this stage in the nudge, you cannot ignore the hail but beware, you may be tempted to discount or minimize it. 

A nightmare’s symbolism is as individual as we are, however, there are several common reasons for having nightmares.  The most obvious one is trauma.  We may not be permitting ourselves to ponder the trauma because the effects are still too raw.  Our consciousness must integrate and file these experiences into our psychic makeup: Our psyche must give the trauma context and meaning.  We must begin the journey of reaching a place of peace and acceptance and the nightmare may represent the first step.
 

Something has Breached Our Psychic Defenses

There are other common reasons for nightmares; fear of failure, a health alert, or feeling victimized.  Being bullied triggers more than its share of nightmares in a victim of any age. Being faced with a difficult choice, behaving in a manner unfamiliar to our self-concept; abandonment, loneliness, lack of safety or medications can all set off a nightmare. 

Military psychiatrists observed that when warriors on the front lines began dreaming of the horrors of war, they needed to be removed from the front lines.  The horror witnessed had breached a psychic barrier and a mental illness was likely to ensue. 

A client described a dream series of nightmares whereby she discovered many of her friends and family were vampires. In the nightmare she was terrified that they would discover she was human and would start feeding on her.  She wasn’t a fan of the horror genre, so she couldn’t imagine why she kept having these theme-based nightmares.  It wasn’t until I asked, “Who in your waking life is threatening to suck the life out of you?”, that she appreciated the genius of her dream director!
 

Nightmares May Suggest Encroaching Mental Illness

A nightmare may be highlighting a growing neurosis which means you are fearing something not founded.  A phobia is an example of this.  People who describe themselves as worry warts tend to be plagued more frequently with nightmares. Regardless, a nightmare in this case still demands attention.  A growing phobia can be crippling.  It may prevent us from living a free and healthy life. If a nightmare is alerting us to a growing neurosis, we need to have it examined and healed before it wreaks any further damage to our psyche.
 

Nightmares in Children

Children are plagued with nightmares more frequently than adults mostly because everything is new and potentially threatening.  Everyone is bigger and stronger and things in the world make loud, unfamiliar noises.  It’s a scary world to a vulnerable child!

Encourage children to describe their nightmares and offer them suggestions about how to overcome the monsters. This will help the child to feel empowered and less threatened in their waking lives.  Remember to empower the child to be the strong one in the nightmare rather than guiding them to see the threat as smaller.  This emboldens the child to face threats with confidence rather than encourage them along a dangerous path of magical thinking whereby they might imagine they can make threats smaller.  Some threats are real, and no amount of magical thinking is going to make them less than what they are, but if we believe in ourselves and face threats head-on, we’ll have a better chance at dealing with the monster appropriately and safely. 
 

Nightmares as Creative Inspiration

Ignoring or discounting nightmares as only dreams doesn’t make them go away because like most forgotten or ignored dreams, they will simply recycle back. Imagine what the nightmare is asking you and be playful and imaginative.

Consider a couple of different endings.  Often a nightmare is interrupted by an abrupt awakening, triggered by our increased heart rate and breath; use your imagination to envision what the ending might have been that stars you as the winner.  A nightmare may even be a warning of something ahead. Never discount the possibility that a nightmare is precognitive!  This is a good reason to record and date it.

Use your nightmare as a creative inspiration.  Draw, paint or collage the images. Title your nightmare. The stories of Jekyl and Hyde, Frankenstein, and Dracula were all inspired by nightmares. When you describe a nightmare to someone, they will likely identify and empathize with your experience.  There is nothing quite like a sharing a nightmare to bring an uncommon level of intimacy into your social intercourse and intimate relationships.

This testimonial is posted for all the world to see on google. Special thank you to Niki Gilmour and several others who kindly left me glowing testimonials and feedback directly on google. I can't thank you enough!  Several people/organizations have left unkind comments and poor ratings. These negative reviewers don't know me, have never had a reading done by me. In one case, I was contacted by the organization immediately on the heels of posting the nasty review, requesting $400/mo to remove the rating/comment and keep it off.  Google gives higher credence to negative comments which means that it takes almost 4/1 positive to counter the deleterious affects of one negative review.

I’m really surprised it has taken me this long to write an article on this topic.  It is something I have thought about a lot since I switched from being one to the other. 

For many years I had a counselling practice which included individual clients (and sometimes couples and groups) for various mental afflictions, such as, addictions, mourning and depression, sleeplessness and paranoia. I loved the work, but I often thought it was far from a perfect model for helping people sort through their conundrums.

Many of my clients now are in therapy and for anyone in deep distress, I do recommend they seek ongoing therapy.  Furthermore, I suggest a specific modality that I think would be the best medicine.  Seeking the advice of an oracle AND going for therapy is likely to be the best approach of all.  Why should one preclude the other?
 

General Problems with Psychotherapy

It’s critical to acknowledge too, that there is the right therapist for everyone. Never assume that because a psychotherapist has facilitated incredible change in the life of a relative or friend, they will also do wonders for you.  There is a magical pairing of client to therapist always. 

Don’t apologize for shopping around.  Therapists and clients need to connect in a uniquely energetic way too.  This is another problem with the whole model of therapy!  Typically, you are assigned a therapist by an organization which will have nothing to do with a good match but rather what is convenient.  How can you possibly share your deepest, soulful pain with someone you feel alienated from?  You could end up hurting yourself more than helping!

It can feel like, both as a client and therapist, that the process is unnecessarily repetitive.  You wonder how many times you’ll have to keep going over the same problem before something finally shifts.  This is one of the reasons seeing a psychotherapist can be rather lengthy and expensive.  Depending on their orientation, education and fame, psychotherapists may charge upwards of $250/hr. and if you need to see them once or twice a week for a year or two, this can get impossibly pricey.

Other problems with psychotherapy may include a fear of being perceived as mentally ill and weak.  There might be a stigma against anyone seeing a psychotherapist in the clients’ circle of family and friends which means that going to therapy may further damage their self confidence.  Some people see themselves in that light which is why they just won’t seek therapy. Period.

Not that seeking an oracle is a sure indicator of rock-solid sanity. There are, however, innumerable ways to giggle away a psychic consult. Doing it for fun, going along with a friend, curiosity or wanting to be distracted and entertained can suffice. None of these reasons will stick however, when discovered you are seeing a psychotherapist.
 

Why I’d Rather Be a Tarot Reader than a Psychotherapist

The main reason I like it so much better to be an oracle rather than a psychotherapist is that I can say what I like.  This indeed is the rub and the main reason I like it so much more.  I can say whatever I think and/or feel about an issue.  I don’t have strict rules of engagement to abide where a therapist certainly does! It must be the client’s insight that brings resolution to an issue, not the therapist’s.  That would be leading, controlling, projecting or manipulating a client.  I don’t worry about that as an oracle. I don’t worry about power over a client or what I say might have a lifetime impact on their whole self concept. 

Psychotherapists have a myriad of things outside the therapy room they must consider – insurance companies, government and certification bodies for starters.  If they are associated with a doctor, then the medical community will be involved too.

Confidentiality is a constant issue especially if an organization (ie insurance company or company the clients is working for) is paying for it.  This means report writing, submissions, diagnosis and treatment plans.

Another huge problem for me of course is that spiritual insights are not invited or taken seriously.  Professional reputation” is a concern for practitioners.  What would their colleagues think hearing they were using Tarot in their counseling sessions, for example?
 

How Counseling and Tarot Reading Have Different Approaches

Love: A therapist may have insight into the significant other the client is discussing but they can’t/won’t talk about them.  The focus in therapy is on the client and how they are going to work with their relationships. In a Tarot reading I get a psychic sense and will share that with the client helping them understand why the relationship will succeed or is doomed.

Health: For issues like getting a cancer diagnosis, clients hesitate to go for therapy because there will be focus on how they feel (obviously not great!) as opposed to what their chances are of survival.

Career: A psychotherapist will concentrate on the client’s skill, experience and education.  Specifically concentrating on the gaps that must be addressed for future success. As a reader, I consider these issues, but I will also discuss life purpose, creative expression, and business development from a spiritual perspective. This spiritual perspective includes a tarot reading, their astrological sign and what they wanted to accomplish coming to embodiment (life purpose).

Spiritual Attacks:  There is such a thing.  No psychotherapist, however, will discuss them.  Energy vampires, voodoo practices, curses and luck are not something most clients will discuss with a psychotherapist for fear they will be diagnosed as insane.  As an oracle I won’t disparage or judge ANY spiritual experience.  

Although I’m cautious with respect to curses, I do believe they do exist and if you would like to read more about my thoughts on curses read my article on them here.  As far as energy vampirism, I’m 100% positive this nasty bit of work does exist and will discuss strategies for dealing with it.

I wish you a glorious, autumnal Thanksgiving weekend! Gratitude is a central tenet in all spiritual practices.  When we have a day of thanks collectively celebrated, it is the perfect occasion to take a moment to set your intention to offer a sacred moment of gratitude work every day of the coming year.

 Merry Fall Equinox!

Are You Suffering Decision Fatigue?

This is a real thing.  Psychologist, Dr. Roy F. Baumeister discribes this mental illness in his book, Willpower.  If you’re in the groove for a new pop-psych book, I highly recommend this one.

A modern-day psychological disorder, decision fatigue is growing into a monster in people’s personal lives and workplaces.  For some, making upwards of twenty impactful decisions an hour means they have maxed out their mental ability to decide.

Making decisions usurps mental energy and deciding wisely demands focus and balance.  On the one side of the scale, you have the paralyzing fear of making the wrong decision and paying unforeseeable consequences for it.  For the rest of your life. 

Equally pressing on the other side of the scale is a push to choose NOW, which may be real or imagined.  Some work situations may demand that you decide promptly, and this may be true particularly if others are involved in the process.  If you must make a lot of decisions in quick succession then it will sorely impact on other areas in your life where you also need to make decisions, such as those concerning your private life.
 

High Powered Deciders

Having to make constant decisions may force you to start picking your decision battles such as, what to wear, eat, be entertained by, etc.  People with demanding jobs favour a uniform for work; such as, a gray hoodie and jeans (Mark Zuckerberg) or jeans and a black turtleneck (Steve Jobs). 

I’ve spoken with clients who complain about spouses/lovers who never seem to have any opinions or preferences about how they should spend their time together.  They complain about always being the ones who must pick something to do because if they don’t, as a couple, they will end up sitting in front of the TV, night after night. If you find yourself in this boat, likely you are loving someone who is suffering decision fatigue in other parts of their lives and they need help getting it sorted out.

I knew a dominatrix sex worker who described her typical client as a high-powered executive/professional who felt a desperate need to be dominated by someone who was good at taking charge.  For a specific, previously contracted amount of time, she made all the decisions and effectively, safely, meted out predictable punishments.  Her client base was substantial and the demand for her services was perennially far greater than she could possibly fulfill.

She was a busy, phenomenally successful businesswoman who exploited this dynamic brilliantly.  Her clients needed some time when they could just be like a child; no decisions, responsibilities or power. Rarely did their sessions include sex.  
 

How Have I Helped Others to Make Decisions They Can Live With?

Decisions are a major element in my work with clients.  Most people who consult with me are stuck betwixt and between opposing options. They must decide whether to remain in their committed relationship or continue working at their current job: They may need help deciding how to approach a stressful familial issue, or illness, or whether they should sell their house or invest in a business.  My stymied clients are afraid of making a choice they will regret, or they wonder if they might have missed a third option.  They need to know what the outcome is likely to be depending on the choice they make and how their loved ones are likely to react to their chosen course of action.
 

Making Decisions is Lonely

Consultations with me will demand that you sit and ponder, free from distraction.  They afford you an opportunity to talk things through with someone who is not in your life.  You are driven to go offline for a while and focus on where you’re at, where you want to be, what you’re hoping for your future self and where you’re likely heading.  Most clients will say I’ve just validated what they had already surmised.  It was nice however, to have that validation.
 
Making decisions can be lonely because we fear talking to anyone who knows us well about it.  We know loved ones will likely and understandably have an axe to grind.  We may also feel despondent at the notion of sharing our decision angst with someone who may be inclined to tell us what we want to hear because that’s just a waste of time and energy.

We need to have the plain, honest thoughts from someone who has no vested interest in which direction we choose. Someone who has no judgement.  It’s nice to have some sense of our futures as well.  We don’t need to hear that we’re crazy or that things will just work themselves out because we know in our hearts that’s just not true.

As we slip into the autumn season, we’ll all be making more than our average number of decisions.  Do what you can to keep the decision demon at bay. Pick the ones you must make and let go of the ones that are not as critical. Prioritize, consult and be mindful that you don’t get overwhelmed and fatigued.  Save your energy for the big things that demand your full attention.  And no matter what, don’t take on someone else’s decision load!  That’s their garden to weed and hoe.

Blessings Kathleen

Opportunity Dances with Character to Create a Destiny

Most people believe in fate and most spiritual faith traditions contain an element of its mystery in its teachings.  We like to believe that we direct our destiny and this belief stands most of the time until something weird happens.  Good or bad.  We all have astounding stories re fate.  I have accumulated hundreds over the years as you can imagine, enough that I don’t doubt that there is a destiny for all of us.  Understanding and describing its mechanisms is complicated, however but I want to try.

Some say that our destiny is obvious, just look around! You’re living it.  But I don’t think it’s that easily dismissed.  I do believe that there are things like opportunity (or lack of it) that impacts on whether our destiny gets unfolded in the manner it was meant to.  For example, a person is destined to be a healer/doctor but they’re born into circumstances that are poor with resources, support or peaceful.

Question: What does it mean when we say something was fated to be or that this was our destiny and  who is sitting at the controls?

Loved or cursed.  “Why do all these horrible things keep happening to me when I consistently choose the righteous path?”, we wail to anyone who will listen (yes I do hear this a lot).  Something is not right in the world when we choose to be a good person and end up with the shorter end of the stick. It’s like a deal that went south. But then who were we making that deal with anyway?

Aside from good luck or bad, what makes us suspect something was fated to happen?  Is it because there was such a small window of timing for it to take place?  Is it because we dreamed of the event beforehand?  Or perhaps because it feels like no matter what we do, the outcome is habitually positive or negative?  If everything in our lives is fated to be why make any effort at all?  There is nothing more astonishing than learning that someone won a lottery six times or someone has been attacked randomly six times?  What did s/he do to warrant such a fate? 

Timing is Everything

If it is my fate to meet you, then we shared a thread of matching fates which led us to this point of joining.  Fate therefore is comprised of many threads and if any of those single threads were to shift then our joined fate would be altered.  We’ve all met someone special and felt that the timing was off.  One of us was on our way out of town, or just gotten married, or on our death bed.  Of course, that was our fate but that won’t stop us from moaning, “Why now?” 

Being at the right place at the right time is everything.  Can that be arranged? We would like to think so.  Fate drives us to reach more deeply into our emotional core where fear and desire rage.  If only we had done such and such or known then what I know now.

There is a dearth of books on the market with silly promises that if you do the right thing; visioning a beautiful and abundant future for example, it will manifest.  The problem has always been, what to say when that just isn’t the case?  Because the reality is that terrible things do happen to lovely people.  And wonderful things do happen to the nastiest people!

A Lesson in Control

Perhaps the true essence of fate is its lesson in control. Our ancestors would sagely nod and say, “You’ve angered and/or pleased the Gods and you’ll be dealt with accordingly.”

Our ancestors however, always regarded the Gods and Goddesses as unpredictable and random in their reward/ consequence justice. You couldn’t always trust that their meted justice was fair in any way a human could grasp.  There was a time when the divine was believed to be not always good, wise, all loving or all seeing; it was as prone to jealousies, petty bickering, violence, vengeance and moodiness as humans.  This however, helped humans explain natural disasters, and personal, inexplicable unfairness.  The divine could strike a mighty blow and rain hell on our heads for no apparent reason and humans were left with limited options.  That was our fate.

When Lady Fortuna has taken control of our destiny wheel, it’s likely a lesson about adapting to capricious change.   Sometimes I wonder if Lady Fortuna steps in like a chiropractic spiritual adjustment when we have been veered too drastically off our fated track.  She may even take us off to the spirit world before we cause more damage to someone’s else’s fated destiny by living a life that’s not even our own. 

Fate is rarely predictable or attached to good begetting good and bad begetting bad.  I think that’s it’s most salient lesson.  Don’t think you’ve done something particularly stellar or terrible, rather consider that our lives are at the will of the Gods and be at peace that you don’t have as much control as you fancy.

As you might imagine, I’m often asked by heart-broken clients,

“Why can’t I get over this guy/girl?  Do you know when I’m going to stop crying, obsessing, feeling horrible, depressed and down on myself?!”  This is an equal opportunity agony!  Age, sex, cultural heritage, religion, profession, self confidence make no difference. We’re all the same,

“Why does so-and-so adhere to my soul like crazy glue?  I dream about them, worry about their welfare, think about them every minute of the day despite how little regard they have towards me.  What is WRONG with me!? Am I nuts?  Are they coming back?” 

In a desperate bid to negotiate an explanation, people jump to all manner of irrational conclusions, such as, they knew this person in another life and divine providence has reunited them for another shot at bliss which their deserter has failed to notice YET.  This explanation is especially compelling if their meeting was synchronistic, or they share a psychic connection.  I always doubt this interpretation and usually when rationality returns, the rejected see why this explanation is unlikely.
 

Primary Emotions

There are two primary emotions that comprise the trunk of our emotional tree.  Fear and love.  The rest of our emotions are like branches and suckers that grow off this dual, primary emotional train.  Fear and love are opposite emotions and we shouldn’t be feeling them both at the same time.  If we do, it signals a mental illness that needs special attention and healing.  Sado-masochism, co-dependency and self-pity, for example, are symptoms when we feel both love and fear simultaneously.

Many mistakenly believe we cannot feel hate and love at the same time, but we can and typically do because they are the flip side of the same emotional coin. We do feel hate towards those we deeply love.  Remember how you felt about your parents when you were a teenager? 
 

Love’s Illusions

When we are having difficulty letting go of that forever-after-dream of the love we shared with someone, we are operating under two illusions:  One is that you can help that person defeat their limiting, relationship/commitment fears which will open the channels to allow the love to flow back in again. Even utilizing all the power accessible to you in the universe, you cannot make another want to take a risk or make a commitment to you.
  
People ask me, “What can I (or better yet you, Kathleen) do to change their feelings towards me?”

I often smile to myself about how easy it is to understand this apparent mean-spirited one-sidedness when it comes to ourselves. Hasn’t someone burned hot for you, yet for whatever reason left you feeling cold, indifferent and maybe even, dare I say… a tad repulsed?

Is there ANYTHING they could have done to ignite your fire?  Is there anything they could have said or changed about themselves that would have spurred you to wax poetic?  No? Or better yet would you want this person to have access to a Magician that could alter your feelings towards them? What a terrifying thought!

Illusion #2

Your love interest doesn’t really know how they feel and once you’ve awakened them (like Sleeping Beauty) they will realize they do truly love you.  There are sly and sneaky people who will promise to help you awaken your love interest to their true feelings for you for a modest or horrendous fee.  Don’t be fooled.  No one has the power to make someone love you. Only we have the power to change ourselves and even that is questionable when we can’t even make ourselves get over someone that clearly doesn’t share our feelings!

Don’t feel abnormal or crazy because you love someone more than they love you and can’t seem to stop.  That was the risk you were willing to embrace.  Be excited about your bravery, honesty and willingness to be vulnerable.  That is the gift of love. Know that by keeping up the faith and giving of yourself so generously and lovingly, some day another will catch your light and rush towards its glow with the same abandonment in which you are prepared to give.
 

The Dream of  a Deep and Abiding Intimacy

The desire to connect is powerful in us – its one of those hard-wired aspects of our psyche that is linked to survival, reproduction and safety. 

The most helpful thing you can do to help yourself recover from this unshared love is to pray for the subject of your desire.  Pray for their happiness, good health and spiritual enlightenment.  Send them your love (not by texting, NO texting!).  One day you’ll wake up and realize you have moved on and that sexy, sweet smiling person you met the other day…is wondrously taking up more and more of your psychic space.

Celebrate your ability to love that deeply and unselfishly. It’s a bounty of your abiding and generous spirit.  It’s what makes you special and to be chosen to be the conduit of this special love is a divinely inspired gift.  Don’t despair!  It’s not a sign that you’re crazy at all but rather one that you’re transformational and enlightened.

"Thanks to  you Kathleen and your special gift  I  will do  my  best  to  be  strong  and  welcome  change. Thanks  a  lot.  You helped me a lot to start to accept things that happened. I’m sorry I got emotional.

You gave me clarification and reminded me to be careful of my decisions. When I hung up the phone I thought of my dreams. Twice I dreamed of a woman who was in the dark and I don’t see her face…everything is dark.

You have a very warm heart and I will keep in mind your advice. Thanks a lot. I look forward to another reading.

Sincerely,

“Spiritualism has inaugurated the era of woman,” proclaimed Mary Davis in 1880. I bet that date surprises you.  As early as the mid to late 1800’s, Spiritualist conventions, gatherings and writings all called for the emancipation of women.  Those who assumed the most radical positions on woman's rights became Spiritualists (for example, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who was also a close friend of Cora Richmond – my spirit guide)  This shouldn’t be surprising since all evolutionary steps can be traced to the spirit world’s guidance and intervention.
  
Spirit Warnings & Interventions

Many are hoping the spirit world will now help us to make the necessary changes to heal our sick earth.  For sure, we can’t claim we haven’t been forewarned.  I’ve been an active member of the environmental movement since 1972 and I can’t say I’m impressed in the least.  In fact, I’m more discouraged than ever.  The equator has shifted further north due to the reduction in ice weight in the north and south poles (see the scorching hot temps in the UK and Europe); erosion is dismantling shorelines around  the world and our oxygen engines (forests) are dying due to fires, hot temps, and unprecedented pest populations out of control. To say we are in deep trouble is putting it mildly.   We’re fast approaching the most massive extinction event since the dinosaurs and as humans we’re high on that list.    
 
The Comstock Book Burnings

Back in the 1800’s not all feminists were Spiritualists, but all Spiritualists advocated equality for women. Women were equal to men within a Spiritualist practice, polity, and ideology.  This was inherent in a religious practice in which truth was revealed to individuals without recourse to an external authority (always males and typically Priests).  In the mid 19th century there were eleven million Spiritualists out of a population of twenty-five million in the US.  This growing faith spread fast around the world but was severely crippled when it was subjected to the massive book burnings with the Comstock book censorship law. Today we have the same problem with book burnings. Not literally but figuratively speaking.  Witness those who deny environmental catastrophe and denigrate scientific query and warning.  I shudder to think what future generations will say about our generation.  If any survive.

The mid-19th century spiritualist movement was the cyclonic force of the feminist movement.  In manner of dress, the right to speak in public forums, to own their own money, to be spiritual leaders, and to declare a woman's right to equality, the spiritualists cleared the path.  In Spiritualism the place of worship was relocated to the home from church, or temple.  Spirit circles gathered around parlour tables, a most appropriate place for women to preside.

The medical society deemed mediumship a medical disorder causing rebellion against gender roles. On the other hand, Spiritualism taught women to exercise self-healing properties in her own nature and to develop a more egalitarian relationship with her doctor.   Now those who warn of the illness in our air and oceans are called extremists, alarmists and negativists. It’s never been popular to be an environmentalist.  We’ve been called, “Unrealistic, anti-business, and regressive.”

The persecution of the young female medium suffered at the hands of self- proclaimed psychic investigators was reminiscent of the earlier witch hunts. Mediums were bound to chairs, locked in small cupboards, naked, supposedly to assure sitters they weren't hiding any tricks in their skirts. Despite this stress, mediums were expected to provide proof that they communed with the spirit world which a surprising number of them succeeded in doing!

More Prophecy than Prescription

Equality between the sexes was lauded from the spiritualists as a spiritual imperative from the spirit world meaning that it was divinely prescribed and ordained. Spiritualists believed, as one advocate put it, that woman's freedom is the world's redemption.  Today we know that was more prophecy than prescription.

The seeds of modernism, psychoanalysis, communications, human rights, longevity were all brought from the unseen world to the seen in this most spiritual, glorious age.

The her/his tory of religion has taught us that the further we move in time away from the original spiritual message, the more it morphs, disintegrates, and ultimately decays.  Spirituality is a dynamic force and has the power to alter the consciousness of humans, the course of our collective destiny and ultimately our ability to thrive.  Its temple is the heart, its expression is in the actions we take every day of our lives.

If you are inspired by feminism and spirituality, I highly recommend you research this fascinating spiritual herstory. It’s a study rich in joy, surprise and affirmation.  If you are worried about what the scientists are saying about our environment, I highly recommend you get involved. There may be a day when you’re grateful you did become involved when it might have made a difference.  Don’t be complacent.  Don’t be one of those who persecuted Cassandra – be one of those who listened and did everything you could to make it better.

Happy Spring!

Spring, like fall, is a season when we feel an awakening to new possibilities.   Like the budding plants and newborn chicks, a part of us that has been dormant in the long, dark nights of winter start nudging for emergence.  People start booking trips to parts unknown or even think about moving, changing jobs or retiring, leaving relationships and beginning new ones.

This psychic dynamic doesn’t travel in a straight line from the unseen to the seen.  It often travels by way of an intermediary or a host. 
 

Projecting Our New-Found Inner Gold

In a desperate bid to grab our attention, after having tried rather unsuccessfully many other tools at its disposal like dreams, our unconscious self will project our new-found inner gold onto a person.  Promptly we are consumed by every new little thing we discover about that person.  The first inkling of this psychic dynamic at play is when the other person appears to be so luminous that they practically glow in the dark.

That’s a sure sign that something is changing in us and we are projecting our gold because NO ONE is that great, right?  We might call them a guru, mentor, teacher, guide or…yikes… yes a lover! (Hence we also declare Spring is the time for love.)

While we are celebrating the magnificent, fantastic, astounding things we attribute to the other person, we are really seeing our own inner, secret depth and meaning.  Our inner gold has become just too unwieldly for us to embrace so we assign someone else to carry it for us for a time.  Eventually we’ll gain enough psychic strength to carry the load ourselves and we’ll take it back from them. Not typically the most pleasant of experiences.
 

The Power of Our Life Force Depends Upon their Grace

Projecting our inner gold gifts us a unique opportunity to advance in consciousness and spiritual development. When we see that we have given our spiritual gold to someone to hold for us, there are a myriad of ways in which we might respond.  We follow them with an eagle eye wherever they go.  Their smile can raise us to heavenly heights, and their frown will hurl us to hellish depths.  Every nuance of their actions and expressions are absorbed in minute detail.  A quirk of their eyebrow, a slight smile forming at the corner of their mouths, or their silence can affect how we feel that day.  The power in our life force seems to hinge on their approval or sanction.

In our culture, a mutual exchange of our inner gold is upheld as the prerequisite for marriage (this is when the inner gold projection falls under the rubric of falling in love).  You’ve projected your gold, your deepest inner value, onto the other person.  You’ve given it to them to incubate for a while, until you are ready to take it back.  For the relationship to succeed, you WILL have to take it back.
 
Unfortunately, that’s always accompanied with disillusionment.  The gold comes clattering home by way of disappointment.  A solid marriage can only prevail on human love, which is different from romantic love, being in love, or loveness. 
Our human life, our marriage, is fed by the capacity to love human to human.  When we’re in love, we put our gold- our expectations – on the other person, and this process sadly obliterates them from our view.
 

Projections Must Be Brought Home to Achieve True Relatedness

There is no relatedness between two people in this equation.  We are not able to truly see the other person as they are unto themselves.  We only see the projection of our own inner gold.

Recently a client (and she’s not alone by any means!) confessed that she annoyingly only seemed to fall in love with bad boys.  Never the decent, commitment sort of fellows.

I asked her if she’d ever considered buying a BAD motorcycle.  She looked at me astounded and said, “YES!  I’ve been secretly coveting one of those for years.” 
I said, “Do it!!  You won’t have such a craving for bad boys because you’ll be giving your inner bad boy space for expression.  No longer a need to project him onto another, you’ll find yourself inexplicably attracted to rather ordinary, nice fellows that make great mates and dads.  Like you, he’ll be a bad-boy biker at night and a rather square banker during the day.”

Know that that wondrous feeling of falling in love doesn’t have to last forever to be the best thing that ever happened to you. It may be serving the most important purpose of all which is to awaken you to the spiritual riches lying quietly within, sprouting buds and bursting to be realized. Whether lover, guide or mentor, your gold carrier maybe just the right combination to nurture and carry the load until you’re ready.  You’ll know when it’s time to schlep your own gold.  Your assigned gold carrier has become unworthy and, in all likelihood, has strolled off with hardly a backward glance. 

Have a growing, joyous and fulfilling April.

Not at all meaning to minimize the value of imagination or wishful thinking! Imagination and psychic insight are interconnected which is why it’s hard to differentiate one from the other.

Part of what makes a psychic development class so special, is the immediate feedback from another, either validating or correcting what you’re perceiving psychically. Your “testers” aren’t loved ones or even friends, just fellow travellers on the purple road.

A Physical Connection Fosters an Emotional Connection which Supports Psychic Insight

Each class in my psychic development course was a focus upon one area of psychic ability. In the second class, we explored telepathy and remote viewing. Sitting across from a partner, you were asked to rhythmically breathe together to achieve a deeper, nonverbal level of connection. Breath synchronization is a powerful tool to forge a bond. Healers use this tool to create simpatico with a client. Savvy sales people know how to do this too!

Further along in this telepathy exercise, students were instructed to hold hands with their partners and then while transmitting or receiving messages, to put their hands on the forehead of their partners. These exercises are designed to demonstrate how a physical connection can, and often does foster an emotional connection which in turn will facilitate a psychic connection.

One of the students had recently suffered a broken heart and everyone in the class picked up on the depth of this member’s sadness. It was a powerful moment in the class when everyone realized they had been picking up on a deep sadness in a fellow student which had been overwhelming most of the intentional psychic messages passed among the pairs of students.

This phenomena highlighted a process which motivated me to stop allowing more than one person at a time in my reading room. Sometimes the energy of one in the room overwhelms the energy of the reading and the whole story becomes about them, not the client who came in with an issue!

In the early stages of your psychic development, you’ll have to run with your imagination for a while until you’re able to discern the difference between imagination and psychic insight.

 

From Where or Whom is Transmitting These Psychic Messages Anyway?

Determining whose thought process this psychic message belongs to and what to do with it, is your next challenge. If you are receiving what you believe to be spiritual messages steering you along a path you would normally consider immoral or unhealth, then chances are these are coming from your shadow self.

Furthermore, you should be wary of any impressions which are in direct accordance with your wishes. When human desire is activated, there is lack of clarity in the perception of truth, particularly if your desire is a selfish one. Love, not desire is the source of all that is in spirit.

We all have wishes that we know will remain unfulfilled. This can be so annoying and stressful that our imaginations are ignited to fulfill this desire and ease the tension within us. That’s why reading for ourselves is rarely helpful.

Even having a dear friend read for you can be problematic. A loved one can be even more invested than you, in reading an outcome you deserve. I always warn my students about this snag. Be careful to avoid reading for loved ones – pass them along to another student. Share your relatives and friends! The reading has a better chance at accuracy and honesty.

Are Your Messages Selfish?

Trust only your impressions and intuitions that come at variance with your selfish wishes, for they are not only from the inner nature of your own spirit, but are doubtless the promptings of the guardian spirit to lead you aright. The moral energies intervene and frequently an impression may be in direct opposition to your individual wish and will. If the impression however does come upon a subject that you have no knowledge of and no judgement on, and an impression distinctly comes, obey it, for in nearly every instance when you do not obey, you regret it.

If you are attributing a message to spirit, the first question you must ask yourself, “Am I hoping for a particular outcome?” If there is even a hint of yes, you are very likely caught in a rationalization of wishful thinking and listening to the voice of desire not spirit.

Have an enlightening Spring Equinox on every level!

Years ago, I taught a class on growing/honing your psychic ability along with several other esoteric/psych courses such as, how to interpret your dreams and reading the Tarot for self & others.  Usually a dozen of us met weekly X 2 hours X 8 weeks. During the first half of each class, I chatted on a particular divination tool and the psychic ability that would flourish well with that tool.  The second half of each class was a psychic practice exercise both for development and understanding.  In between the work and laughter, we told inspiring psychic stories.  It was great fun, most of all for me.
   
I had “testing” nights at the beginning, half way through and at the last class to gauge/measure how everyone’s ability had shifted through their work in the class.
 

Zener Cards
  

Zener cards were one of our primary measuring tools.  I discovered the Zener cards in 1971 when I was preparing for a presentation to my Grade 10 Physics Class on psychic ability. At 15 I thought psychic ability would be the perfect subject matter to break the typical tedium of physics for most students.  It was!  When I asked at the end if there were any questions, I was stormed with all sorts of comments and questions. Even the teacher was intrigued and had a host of questions that he wanted to ask me after class. Nothing untoward of course, he was just a closet psychic freak.

The Zener cards have been in production and use by the Rhine Institute since the ‘30’s for psychic ability testing.  You can still find Zener cards through most metaphysical outlets.  They can be fun to play with your friends and family.  You might even want to launch your own psychic ability exploration group.  It just takes one to get it started.
 

A Pendulum

One of the psychic tools we studied and practiced in our class was the pendulum.  The origins of the pendulum would be as difficult to track her/storically as the Tarot, but at some point in time there is a record of a pregnant woman fashioning a simple pendulum out of a probably worn-out darning needle on the end of a thread.  The woman or a diviner if one was handy, would suspend the needle over the woman’s abdomen and watch for which direction the suspended needle would go first.  The pendulum continued to develop over the 20th century but like all divination tools, it’s not a guaranteed perfect fit for you. You might have to practice with many different pendulums until you find one that consistently reliable to you.  Just a warning that this process might take many years.  If you have an opportunity to take a pendulum class with an experienced diviner and good teacher, don’t hesitate!  You can’t beat in person training for this tool.

Men interested in pendulum power tended to feel a greater affinity to divining rods.  Rods are typically but not exclusively used to search for minerals and water.  Both practices are based on the same principles.  People have used this method to find lost or stolen objects, make decisions, and heal.  The pendulums spiraling energy can be used for healing in the hands of a spiritual healer with the kinesthetic psychic gift.

The pendulum is another handy tool to begin your intuition/psychic ability explorations because of its use in answering simple yes and no questions. It’s portable, simple and quick. 

There are many psychic tools available to the aspiring psychic aficionado, but most psychics use their own feelings, intuitions, senses, insights more than any tool. Tools can be handy and sometimes it’s more about confirmation and validation.  Sometimes the tool affords you an opportunity to look at the situation from a different perspective.
 
I wish you a glorious February. Here in the northern atmosphere, February is like our month of rest.  Take advantage! Spring Equinox is only a month away and brings with it demands of busy-ness.  Some welcome and some not so much.  In February, we can be warmly excused for our cocooning because of the weather, darkness and flu season or we can even say we’re taking it easy to prevent a threatening flu/cold.  Everyone nods sagely in understanding. We’ve all been caught with a spring cold that lingers annoyingly almost to summer.  Take it easy this month, get lots of rest, fortify yourself for 2019 spring just around the corner.

Kathleen Meadows M.A. Psychic Reader

Every time I hear, “2019”, “2020” is right on its heels. There is something about the number 19 that just rolls into thinking “20”. An end of cycle type of year.

I’ll be turning into a senior citizen officially at the end of 2019 which feels like kind of a big deal. Not that I’m expecting any wowees or significant changes to my lifestyle, it’s more of an internal shift. It’s like when you’re turning 30, 40 or 50.

If you haven’t hit that mid-sixties mark, you’ll just have to take my word when I say that no other has felt quite as momentous as this one. This one seems to carry with it a sort of finality or endgame. Not that we can ever go back at any age but somehow turning 65 means I might want to more. I’ve been asked for a few years now whether I’m eligible for the senior discount and I live in a 55+ building where admittedly I’m one of the youngest amongst my neighbours and this has meant that we have ambulance and fire here almost weekly. Erich went through the whole 65 thing a couple of years ago too, so all this should have helped me get accustomed. Somewhat. Like anything that you know is going to happen, when it happens is always a little different.

New Year’s Resolutions

I’ve never been big on New Year’s resolutions, regarding it more of an extroverted type of activity.  Personal declarations, pronouncements and announcements have always felt discordant with my personality type. There are enough social rules to abide without throwing in another of my own. New Year resolutions also have a hauntedness about things we should be doing but aren’t which lends them a sense of guilt, shoulds, musts, have tos, and yes, the superego. Who needs more superego?  Psychopaths could use more perhaps but I don’t cross their paths often.

The Word for this Year

Yearly, a dear friend in Kitchener hosts a wonder-filled party on Winter Solstice where she coaxes guests into a ritual whereby, we choose a word for the next year, and hang it on a tree in her front yard. Your year’s word should express what you want to attract towards you and what you want to transmit over the year ahead. A theme, guidepost, reference, mantra. It might be a word like bravery, forgiveness, joy, freedom, love or perseverance. I don’t want to mention too many examples – the power of suggestion might be too tempting. My word for example, in 2013 was magic and what a magical year it turned out to be! We moved back to Victoria that year which represented a huge change in our lives on every level. It was magical indeed. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been pulling cards to help clients identify their 2019 word which has been a lot of fun.

Sentiment

My word for 2019 is Sentiment. I’ve always described myself as someone who isn’t oriented to the past but lately however, I’ve noticed a softening regard towards things past. My long-term memory is getting sharper (yes, that’s really a thing that happens) which can be discombobulating and thrilling at the same time. I love these old memories returning with such clarity, colour, and sound. All those old familiar faces I haven’t seen for years – so many long passed to spirit.

I’m envisioning 2019 as a year of not acquiring anything new and not starting any new hobbies, but rather appreciating what I already have and exploring it all in a deeper way. One thing that’s for sure, a trip back to Ontario is in the plans. We’ve been living in Victoria for 5 years and I’m feeling such a hunkering for the Kitchener Market and of course many dear, familiar faces! Our tentative plan is for mid-late April, possibly the early part of May.

I wish you a memorable 2019 whatever that means to you. 

I hope the problems that were plaguing you throughout 2018 are remedied not so far into 2019.

See the funny side in everything. Particularly yourself.

Believe me it’s there. 

I wish you riches in all your favourite things in 2019.

December really is the month for nostalgia, isn’t it?  Not that I seem to need much nudging in that direction these days.  It’s so true that aging brings with it, a reminiscing mind that can and often does, gallop out of control down the paths of old memories that hold such promise of sensual pleasure at this time of year. The visuals of lights, ornamentation and all the shiny things; the sounds of singing choirs, bands playing old familiar tunes, bells ringing and laughter; food, drink, games and gift giving twig memories of holidays gone past.  It’s a heady mix of sentimentality, longing and sensual overload.

Even if you opt out of most things Christmassy, you’ll still be inundated with the collective energies that are constellated at year’s end.

The Strain Drives Many to Be Neglectful & Cruel

For many, Christmas/New Years is so stressful, that that feeling tends to blot out any competing others, such as, joy, charity and renewal.  The strain of the financial and social-pretense pressures drives many to be neglectful and sometimes even cruel to their bodies, families, friends and neighbours.

The holiday season is a great time to practice all those stress reducing intentions we know we should do but always seem to ignore at that moment we need them most!  If nothing else, build in quality alone time to do simple, normal things with people you want to do it with.  Get plenty of rest and eat lots of green vegetables. If you are alone and don’t want to be, consider volunteering at a Christmas dinner that’s being sponsored by a non-profit agency. This is a great way to share the season with others, be rewarded in the spirit of giving and feel connected to something larger than yourself.

We’ll experience Winter Solstice on December 22nd, which in the northern hemisphere translates to the shortest day of the year.  In the Tarot, the Winter Solstice is represented by the Sun card which depicts the birth of the twin gods of the solar cycle.  The Sun is born from the dark womb of the darkest night in the year, and on that day the hours of sunlight begin to lengthen and the power and strength of the sun begins its rebirth. It's the month for Sagittarius who love adventure, learning, hard work and being a part of something much bigger than themselves.

The Perfect Night for Moon Gazing!

Adding to all the excitement, December will reveal a full moon on the same night as Solstice, making this the perfect night for moon gazing!  The last full moon in a year is the perfect time to finish up what’s incomplete in our lives – purge, donate, gift, cleanse and maybe even fast.  These are the kind of rituals that effectively and spiritually express the deeper meanings associated with this day.  To ramp the energy, invite others of like-mind to join you!

Rich with Tradition, Ritual, Indulgence & Connection

People do unusual things in December.  Connect with friends they haven't spoken to all year; buy odd stuff; take holidays and celebrate years’ end.  It's a joyful, painful, exhilarating, depressing and spiritual time for billions around the world.

I'm always excited about December as I’m flooded with glorious memories of my childhood Christmases.  My mother worked tirelessly to create Christmas’s that were rich with tradition, ritual, indulgence and connection.  She had grown up deprived of all those luxuries which had left her determined she would change that for her own family.  We baked and sang and wrapped and ate until we were just filled to the brim.

I wish you a peaceful and joyful holiday season! Be safe, healthy and mindful.

Blessings Kathleen


Quote for Year's End from Cora
 
"First and foremost you are required to have faith.  Of myself I do not laugh at this word;  being a philosopher I can afford to accept it as a factor in the universe of spiritual cause and effect; and when it was said that Jesus could not perform many miracles in his native place because of their unbelief or lack of faith, I understand what it meant.  It means this: that the faith which was necessary, is the step that you must take to RECEIVE the fact, not to PRODUCE it."

The Nature of Spiritual Existence and Spiritual Gifts: Discourses Given Through the Mediumship of Mrs. Cora L. V. Richmond, 1884.

November is my birthday month. I’ve discovered since crossing the 60’s threshold that my likes and dislikes have increasingly simplified.  I’m grateful to still find myself here and reasonably healthy for another year.  One of the many aging adages declares that we return to a childlike state as we move into our elder years. This is an unfoldment I witness daily in myself that delights and catches me by surprise.

I appreciate all the little things that happen in a day.  From those that spark a laugh and inspire gratitude in my heart to those things that remind me I am aging and must approach this stage in my life differently than I have the others.  More time must be carved for walks, cycling, sewing, cooking, preparing, pondering.  That’s what aging demands of us. 
 

Respectable Elder/Crone

My health has been a primary focus for me over the past few months and perhaps that also is to be expected as we approach a birthday.  Although we say a number isn’t important, in a sense that’s not quite true.  We all bring some expectations re that number we are turning at a birthday, even if we hotly deny its relevance.  To varying degrees that number impacts on how we see ourselves positioned in time and place. AKA “ego”. 

For one thing, people react to us differently.  You know your clock has hit some sort of milestone just by how people treat you.  Not people who have known you for a while but strangers. People who have known you for a while don’t alter their reactions to you unless something happens to make your age stand out to them such as a life threatening illness.
 
I recall the first time someone called me “ma’am”. I was 22 years old and he might have been 17 or 18.  I was blindsided and probably stared at him with my mouth hanging open.  He basically was suggesting that he saw me as the “elder” and was being respectful.  I didn’t notice any such thing – I just regarded him as the same as me UNTIL that “ma’am” emitted from his mouth.  Now I’m asked if I qualify for the senior discount. People have a way of putting you in your place – age wise, sex wise – in every way. 

You don’t have to cave into it entirely but being aware will help you use this information for your own benefit.  Yes. Believe it or not, there are benefits to joining the ranks of the aged.  Expectations drop significantly allowing lots of room to challenge stereo types and have a good belly laugh especially on yourself.

 

Health Wake-Up Call

Just today we picked up our coffee from a shop counter and I forgot my gloves at the counter in a bit of muddle putting my wallet away in a new purse.  A fellow grabbed Erich’s arm and asked, “Are these yours (referring to my gloves)?” Erich answered, “Probably” and that started some giggling and I joked that’s just his optimism talking and they all guffawed.  The funny part was it was MY gloves not his and he was willing take full responsibility for forgetting ANY gloves because he knows his memory is totally pathetic whereas mine is still reasonably keen thank heavens.  But I am forgetting more and it’s an awkward adjustment for me.

I did need a wake-up call re my health. I needed to revamp my diet and exercise routine to be more in sync with my age and lifestyle.  What suited me a decade or two ago is markedly different than where I’m at today.  A visit from my “step-mother” Shirley, who passed away in 2013 helped me tremendously. I finally listened to her murmurings more keenly which led me down a road of exploration that led me to some shifts in my diet that were long overdue.  This has resulted in some amazing changes to my health. Listen to spirit.  See? We all need reminders, even me. 

It never hurts to do an in depth examination and assessment re what in your life needs to be revised, tossed or embraced.  I like birthdays for this type of psychological nudging.
 

Scorpio & the High Priestess

Scorpio is the astrological sign for November and the Tarot card is the High Priestess.  The High Priestess’s element is water and like Scorpio she is the mystic, dream interpreter, card reader, wise woman of the Tarot.  She reminds us that we came from spirit and is to spirit we will return.  We listen to her guidance or she will knock us down with depression, neurosis, self harm, materialism or any number of maladies which emerge when we fail to consider/weigh/prioritize our spiritual health in all our decisions.

The High Priestess is our spiritual mother.  Her words can be severe, painful on the ears and heart, insensitive yet simultaneously freeing. She points the way to freedom but reminds us the cost isn’t cheap. November does seem fitting for the High Priestess – it’s the luminous, transitional month no matter where in the world you live.  I wish you a glorious spiritual month!  Pay special attention to the High Priestess in your psyche/soul – what is HER message to you this month? Try hard to hear her message above the racket and follow her guidance.  It will serve you well as you prepare for December which is always a crazy month in the west.

"You did a tarot reading for me earlier this year at Ingrid Hamilton’s tea. I’m just letting you know that you really nailed it!

You told me I’d have to make a sacrifice, detach myself from something in the past – to move on to something really good. Which might seem to sour, but then I’d move on to something so spectacular it would be like winning the lottery.

I found out about a better job which is a place I’ve always really admired. And got another car.

And so in one week – I got a new car and started a new job. If I’d won the lottery, I couldn’t have been any happier.

You totally rock!!!!!”

Studying the Tarot is like taking a symbology/esoteric/psychology course.  The Tarot (a word that doesn’t exist in any language other than as this deck of cards), is a depiction of our journey as spirit into physical form. The stages/learning at each step in this development and what it means when we successfully reach the end of a cycle are represented with a card.

When I used to teach the Tarot, I was amazed by the changes I witnessed in the lives of the students as they learned the meanings and how to read them.  Marriages and other significant relationships were split and forged; career paths were quit and launched.   Students’ appearances even changed!

Enlightenment or psychological growth (whatever lingo is your jam) does impact on us in a multitude of ways.  Self-love and acceptance relaxes our muscles especially those in the face, and all the joints in our bodies.  The resting expression on our faces will alter – we smile, laugh and cry more easily making us look younger.  As the joints in our bodies relax, we walk and move differently. Sometimes our appearance can alter so profoundly, someone we haven’t seen for a while might not even recognize us.

Secrets Revealed in the Tarot

All aspects of our journey and experience is comprised of good and bad. For example, the Devil card, which would be assumed to signal bad news, teaches us that sensuality without love becomes usury, addiction and entrapment. Cups, which are embraced as positive cards, reveal that ungrounded intuition and emotional instability can lead to paranoia and vain imaginings.

Our masculine and feminine aspects must be in balance. For example, the leadership qualities revealed in the Emperor must be balanced with the empathy and nurturance of the Empress.

Our life journey continually moves us towards wholeness. Our process of learning and growing throughout embodiment leads to an acceptance of ourselves, our limitations and gifts. This is encapsulated in the World card and a study of the four essential elements represented in the four suits. For example, when one of the elements is over-represented in a reading, we are guided to re-balance by bringing more of its opposite into our lives.

The human experience is an expression of spirit in matter. When our spirit enters matter, there will be irresistible temptations from both the unseen and seen worlds. The High Priestess represents insight, spiritual riches and knowledge. Following her call may lure us away from our bodies, however, and our day to day concerns for survival. Slavishly following the signals of the High Priestess may distract us from the needs of their bodies to eat and express sexual passion (eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa exemplifies this pathology). The Empress is the riches of the Goddess made manifest. She beckons us with promises of a generous harvest, physical pleasure, and the blessings of birthing. Too much Empress energy may lead to too much mothering and idealized materialism.

Our journey to wholeness will mean sacrifice and death, as revealed through the Hanged One and the Death cards. We must learn to relinquish our ego’s mythology of total control to discover the riches of self-actualization. True psychological health is reflected in our ability to sacrifice our egotistic needs to be recognized and admired at the alter of what supports the greater good and truth.

Balance is the key to emotional/spiritual maturity. Awareness of our spiritual power must lead to prudence, responsibility and beneficence or we will reap the ultimate backlash from the unseen world of sickness, despair and alienation.

Pride always comes before the fall. The Major Arcana offers this lesson several times along the Fool’s journey.  The Devil reminds us to be mindful of the trappings of success and the danger of losing the freedom and joy truly only available from the spiritual plane.  The Tower finally rips down all vestiges of egotism and Judgment promises us atonement (at-one-ment) for our lapses into egotism and be awarded a grace of rebirth.

We are Spiritual Beings in a Physical Body

At the World card, we achieve wholeness.  We embrace true joy which is an awareness of our purpose in life.  We are balanced, spiritual beings in a physical body, here to do the work of the sacred.  Our trials, challenges and losses are regarded from a perspective of wisdom, acceptance and generosity.  We humbly acknowledge that it is only in this very moment that we can experience fulfillment, all else is illusion.

I wish you all an enlightening and fulfilling autumn! Set your intentions to make this a month of balance, right purpose and joy.

Blessings Kathleen

"You were right on the money. Not only that but you were on target for related timing issues as well which I am aware is quite difficult and unique to do. What’s always interesting is that even with a reading I had no idea where I was going or what would happen to get me there yet all of these things were simply looked after and happened as if by perfect design. So while we all would like to get answers and direction It’s enough to simply know by way of summation how things could wind up and then get on with living our lives.

Thank you so much Kathleen!  All the Best Eunice"
