All was unknown to us at one point in time. The exploration of unexplained began with a gut feeling. People took risks, followed their beliefs, and investigated the unseen. Before science proves an idea, it is just a theory, and in the olden days, any thing that wasn’t understood was a myth, witchcraft, or magic.

The spirit realm is still a mystery to many. People have investigated the paranormal, taken pictures of spirits, and performed EMF readings to prove ghosts exist.

So how much proof does one need to believe in the spirit realm or an alternate “invisible” reality?

As you reflect upon the world, you are a reflection of the world. What happens externally in your environment is a manifestation of your subconscious. The experiences are lessons for your growth.

We observe things at a macro level in the world that hold clues for you on a micro-level.
If the economy struggles, you may find yourself struggling to save up for a car or a house.
If there is fear in the world from bullying or personal attacks, maybe you experiencing that somewhere in your own life or community?

Our external environment is a mirror. The reflection reveals…


A never ending and yet fulfilling journey.

Spirituality is a word that is used more commonly these days to describe one’s belief system. I often encounter people who prefix their thoughts with, “Oh I’m not religious, I’m more spiritual”.

Does that mean you’re more open to things?

Do you meditate?

For me, being spiritual is a way to view my world. I look at everything as energy or a soul being on a journey of their own. Nothing really is right or wrong, but here to be experienced. I try to be more objective when I encounter challenges in my…


Free will or destiny?

Soul connections come into your life to love you, help you and even hurt you.

Is there one that is meant for you, the one true love?

I believe we have soul contracts with other souls that participate in our life to help us learn and flourish along the way.

Of course, these soul connections can vary in strength. Still, our human self form attractions and attachments to particular souls as these connections deepen. We may see this soul as our one true love or a soul mate put on this Earth for us.

Is this…


As the year comes to a close, I wish you a Merry Christmas.

There have been so many events the world has encountered. It is imperative to wonder what is next ? But no matter what comes, it is the resilience of the human soul that will persevere.

The soul has the gift of free will. Not necessarily the free will of creation of circumstance but free will in choosing how to respond to the situations at hand. Some accepted and adjusted, others resisted in protest. …


I recently posted this inspirational message on my Facebook group, Evolutionary You. Most readers found it difficult to remember the lessons without being disappointed or hard on themselves for their perceived mistakes. It has taken me a long time to view life as an experience as opposed to a compilation of right or wrong choices .

We are complex beings that experience passion, love, heartbreak, and cruelty and get caught up in the moment. After it passes, we dwell about:

  • What was said and done?
  • What could have been different ?
  • Why did we lose control ?

We allow fears…


Last week I faced my mortality.

I was pregnant and had gone for a routine blood test alone. I was waiting to reveal my pregnancy to family and friends after the first trimester.

Within a few minutes of taking the blood test, my life catapulted. The pregnancy was ectopic and had ruptured in one of my tubes. I was haemorrhaging, and my situation changed from I’m pregnant, to we need to terminate the pregnancy to we need to operate now to save your life. …

It starts out secure and safe in its rightful home. Green and growing in this new world. A little leaf sits high on a branch and observes the world around it.

“This is the life” it says. It sit upon my branch and observe the busy world hustle bustle as time passes. Night and day. Sun and rain.

“I want to join the world” it says.

“Patience little leaf”, says mother tree. Your time to join the world will come.

The little leaf watches other leaves…


Bad things happen to everyone, but we always ask why ME ?

As a spiritual medium, I offer insight into the bigger picture in one’s life through healing, readings and assessing connections with the loved ones who passed away.

Since COVID encroached our lives, I have had clients and friends come to me while going through a slew of bad luck. The virus brought job loss, relationship breakdowns, or unfortunate passings of loved ones. Some faced all the three, together.

One client remarked to me, I must have killed someone in a past life to be facing this karma! …


What happens if you are spiritually gifted but your partner is not ?

Love and beyond.

It’s love. There is chemistry, amazing connection; you have found your soulmate but that person is not spiritually inclined. So how does a relationship grow if you are spiritually connected, but your partner is not? By the way, I am a spiritual medium. So you understand my dilemma.

Having similar spiritual or religious beliefs may be essential for some couples. Some of my psychic healer friends prefer to date someone spiritually oriented. However, it is not a requirement for me. I just want my…
