Bibliomancy

Divination TIP: Bibliomancy.  It’s one of my favorite ways to get quick, powerful, out of the box guidance on any question you need a fresh look at. 

bib·li·o·man·cy

/ˈbiblēəˌmansē/

noun

foretelling the future by interpreting a randomly chosen passage from a book, especially the Bible.

You don’t have to use a religious text, you can use any book you’ve got on hand. 

Clear you mind, take a deep breath and focus on your question.  Open the book to a random page and allow your finger to fall, without reading the text.  Once your finger is on a passage, you can read the word or the sentence for your answer.  Viola!  Wisdom really is as close as your bookshelf.

Loves journey: The Cup cards

The Cup cards tell a story of how love grows from a divine spark inside us and expands to include family and community.

The Ace of Cups, symbolizes divine love and compassion as it pours through us. We are all capable of being vessels for deep, spiritual love that love flows through us into the world.

When it shows up in a tarot reading, you receive love, you give love, you ARE love. Your heart overflows. You embark on a new career or luck into a new job that fulfills you. A happy situation is about to start or is in the beginning stages.

Surrender, accept, permit! Be open to embracing what comes your way! Open your heart and experience the rich flow of emotion available to you right now. You are more receptive to creative opportunities, loving connections, and deep compassion for other living beings. This card comes as an invitation. Will you take it? The Ace of Cups carries the potential for spiritual and emotional fulfillment.

If the Ace of Cups represents the flow of love from within, and the Two of Cups is the flow of love between two people. It symbolizes friendships, deep connections and partnerships, based on shared values, compassion, and unconditional love. It can be a reminder to us to get out of the house and spend time with people we care about.

Dating, social activities balance our lives. (Twos in the tarot call for balance). Show your appreciation for the people you love and get ready for an unexpected stroke of good fortune. When we unite with others, we accomplish more than we can achieve alone.

The Ten of Cups embodies permanent, enduring success, joy and contentment in personal relationships, prosperity and emotional harmony. The love sparked by the ace of cups has grown into a relationship symbolized by the two of cups, and evolves into lasting love; expanded to include the family circle and the larger community where you live. Safety, protection, and true happiness (rather than the absence of pain) is indicated by this ten. Gratitude prompts you to give back to your community. You and the people you care about connect at deep levels, and filled with gratitude, you lift those around you.

Wherever you’re at on your love journey, I send you my love today, and every day.

Balancing Dreams and Expectations

Balancing our dreams with our expectations of reality will end our manifesting journey before it even gets underway.

“I’d love to start my own business, but I could never afford to live without a steady paycheck….” “I’m ready to welcome in a partner, but as a 52 year old single parent, the dating pool is non-existent.”
“I wanted it so much, but I walked away because I knew I wasn’t going to happen.”

Are you seeing the same pattern I’m seeing? Every time someone tells me why they cannot achieve a dearly held goal, I relish the opportunity to unwind that narrative and show them that they can indeed have what they want. Resistance is a tricky thing.

We all juggle the different sides of ourselves, in an attempt to harmonize our spiritual selves with our material growth and worldly status. Sometimes we wobble around like a tight rope walker about to fall. The key to equilibrium, is to embrace the idea that our minds, bodies, emotions and spirits are intimately connected. What affects one affects the others.

When we’re faced with challenges, our ego minds often work overtime to convince us that the impending doom and disaster we imagine is real. That we will fall from our tight rope balancing act and meet an untimely demise. The truth is that the fear (sorrow/disappointment/shame/disillusion) dominating our thoughts will dissipate when we acknowledge and deconstruct it.

To limit ourselves by thinking that we can only wish for what history has shown us is possible, is rubbish. The antidote is to develop a sense of pronoia: the idea that the universe is conspiring to shower us with blessings.

When Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote: “Once you make a decision the universe conspires to make it happen” he was invoking a basic tenet of the law of attraction. That small shift, that decision, can make enormous waves of change, if only we have the faith that what we need will be provided before we need it. I would like to add that we also need to be careful for what we wish for.

When we find the right balance between the spiritual and material we can blend our conscious and unconscious power. Listening to our intuition and inner knowing helps us manifest whatever we want.

Cut away from limited thinking and know that you have the power to manifest your plans, if you give yourself permission to believe that it’s possible.

If you’re struggling or stuck in a rut and would like me to be your cosmic cheerleader and point out a different path from my bird’s eye view of your journey, find me over at 12Listen. I’m here to help. I look forward to connecting with you.

As always, I’m with you on the journey.

It’s Psychic Sunday!

Some call it a “gut feeling,” or a “hunch” – I call it headquarters.

“Trust instinct to the end, even though you can give no reason” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Wow, are you a mind reader?”  “How did you do that? “  “How do you know that?” 

These are questions I’m asked frequently because I use my intuition on a daily basis.  What some folks call a “gut feeling,”  a “hunch” or “women’s intuition,” I call headquarters.  I have friends and family who frequently describe me as someone who “listens to the universe” and this ability has served me well in my life in countless ways.

I grew up in a very emotionally chaotic environment and had a family dynamic that required me to operate on an intuitive level to survive.  That’s not the way I’d recommend learning this skill, but is often the way it happens.  Intuition is a survival skill.  Though we no longer have to cope with hidden dangers jumping out at us from behind bushes in modern life, our intuition knows what’s best for us even when our conscious, thinking mind doesn’t yet understand what’s going on.   Due to the fact that this part of our brain (our limbic/reptilian brain) doesn’t get triggered very often, we don’t always recognize it’s messages and thus tend to ignore them.

Tuning into and using your innate intuitive senses can positively affect your daily life by informing your decision making and relating skills.  We make hundreds of choices daily, using most of the senses that we have, and intuition is just one of them.

One term I’ve heard used for the intuitive process is “Rapid Cognition.”   In his book “Blink” Malcolm Gladwell writes: “I think we are innately suspicious of this kind of rapid cognition.  We live in a world that assumes that the quality of a decision is directly related to the time and effort that went into making it.  When doctors are faced with a difficult diagnosis, they order more tests, and when we are uncertain about what we hear, we ask for a second opinion.  And what do we tell our children?  Haste makes waste.  Look before you leap.  Stop and Think.  Don’t judge a book by its cover.  We believe that we are always better off gathering as much information as possible and spending as much time as possible in deliberation.  We really only trust conscious decision making. But there are moments, particularly in times of stress when haste does not make waste, when our snap judgements and first impressions can offer a much better means of making sense in the world.”

Often times our intuitive sense knows the right answer long before our rational minds do. Our intuition often works faster and provides great hypothetical answers that our rational minds can then research and quantify.  In most cases, the answers and ideas that our intuition offers us turn out to be the best options in a given situation.  In my experience, I’ve found that the impression that came to mind first was usually the correct and most accurate, even after much deliberation.

The power of our unconscious minds is great, but it can be fallible.   The trick to maximizing the benefits of using one’s intuition is to learning when fear is at play and when intuition is at play.  We can fine tune, educate, and manage our unconscious reactions. The power of knowing is not a gift given magically to a fortunate few.  It is an ability that we can cultivate for ourselves.

What if you could learn and implement this aspect of your mind and use it to your advantage intentionally (and not just by chance)?  One of my passions is teaching people about how amazing life can be when we use our intuition consciously, for our benefit.

I’m so excited about doing this in fact that I teach a workshop series that will help you do just that! 

Do you ever wonder what life would be like if you could use intuition to guide yourself towards the vision you’ve always had for yourself?  When you harness this ability, it will allow you to:

  • Solve problems and make decisions with ease
  • Recognize and maximize opportunities
  • Connect with co-workers, friends and loved ones more deeply
  • Navigate job interviews, social interactions and dating with more clarity and confidence
  • Feel confident and comfortable no matter what life throws at you
  • Open you to a world of possibilities

Please stay tuned for more information on the workshop times and dates! As always, I am available for consults locally in Los Angeles, or by phone anywhere in the world.  You can book an appointment with me here: BOOK A READING!

Intuition in action

I live in Los Angeles, where astronomical rental prices and a lack of affordable housing have contributed to a massive increase in the homeless population. The area I live in is near a major television studio and an urban hub, one of the many here in our town. There are many clusters like this in the vast sprawl that is my city.

My neighborhood is no different than most others, and has several homeless encampments cropping up as more and more people suffer the effects of the housing crisis.  I have walked and driven by them and felt a giant pang in my heart because I want to do more.  There still is no real solution on a civic level to handle this growing issue, but last night I was given the opportunity to act my conscience, because it’s not only in my back yard, it was literally IN my back yard.

I live in a building that has an open back patio and parking area. Though it’s behind a locked gate, it’s possible to climb over the 12’ high wall.  So far the people who have done this have stolen a car and some packages.  Life in Los Angeles comes with realities that are in my opinion, a reflection of late stage capitalism in most major cities; but that’s a story for another day.

Last night, a homeless woman jumped over the wall. I heard a crash, because she threw a large piece of a baby’s crib over the wall and it landed loudly on the concrete. I went out to investigate the noise and saw her standing there. I asked her what happened, and she said she was running from someone who had hit her in the head.  I asked her if she was in danger and wanted me to call the cops, and she said no, please do not call the cops.

She was using the crib as a weapon, to defend herself and as a ladder – to get into my building.  It was clear she was intoxicated as she told me she was going to take it and just walk to the gate about 50 yards away from where we were standing.  At this point, I’m still unsure if she’s going to use this thing to clobber me, but as we walk towards the gate, I ask her if she was hungry, thirsty or if she needed anything.

On other nights, I might just have ushered her back through the gate an out into the night, but for some reason, my intuition told me to help her.  I’m not writing this story as a virtue signal or for anyone’s praise, I’m just writing about how my own intuition and instincts responded to a very real situation life presented me with.

“I’m starving, and I need some shoes.” She was in stocking feet, wearing a thin t-shirt and pants. My first thought was, “Oh – okay – I can do this.”  I ask her to wait in the garage for me so that I can bring her a meal.

I sprinted up to my place, threw together a sandwich and other mobile food stuffs and make my way back down to her.  My intuition has been guiding me the entire time, and once she realizes I am sincere in my desire to help her, she softens a bit.  I walk her into the building lobby to sit in a comfy chair so she can eat in peace while I go search for some more things to keep her dry and warm.

Because she’s high, while I was gone, she has placed her garbage in the mail box and has spilled the bag of goldfish all over the lobby.  I find her rubbing a banana peel on her face, and I trade her for a wet washcloth and towel to clean up with. The napkin I gave her with her sandwich is covered in the dirt she wiped off of her hands and crumpled on the floor next the chair she’s sitting in.  She stops eating to help me clean up, and I realize she must have been living on the street for some time now.

I asked her name, and where her people are.  Whether she wanted to go home, and If she wanted me to call anyone for her.  I was able to learn a little about her life, and that she wants to get to a shelter she heard about “One of these days.”  I told her that I hoped she would and that I’d help her do it.

I present her with the shoes, socks, sweatshirt, blankets, a pillow, a little cash and a bag to tuck it all in.  I ask her if I can give her a hug before walking her to the door, and I tell her to find me on the intercom out front if she’s in danger or needs help. I wish I could do more.

I just wanted to share this, and encourage you to not look away. To do what you can with what you have, and to let your intuition guide you.  Not all encounters with strangers (who are also on drugs and in the process of committing a crime) are safe.  I went on pure instinct and listened to my intuition the entire time. Thankfully, I have lots of practice.

I’m glad I was able to connect with her last night.  Looking at the harsher realities of the world isn’t always a comfortable thing to do, but it’s always worth it.

If you are interested in volunteering or helping in the ways that you can, I heartily encourage you to get out there and do it.  Together we are strong.

I’m with you on the journey.
