Remembering Princess Diana Seventeen Years Later.

Princess Diana July 01, 1961 to August 31, 1997

Princess Diana July 01, 1961 to August 31, 1997


Wow, time goes so quickly and it just seems like yesterday I heard about the death of Princess Diana. Of course it was a big shock at the time because of her enormous popularity worldwide. Any magazine that put her on the cover, when she was alive, always sold more than normal. She was an icon during her life and after. Her legacy has continued and she is still loved deeply by many.

Princess Diana Princess Diana will long be remembered for her kindness, gentleness, beauty, and humanitarianism. Let’s celebrate her life and what she gave to so many.

Here is an amazing and inspiring quote from a beautiful woman and an inspiration to so many…..
”Carry out random acts of kindness with no expectation of reward; safe in the knowledge that one day, someone might do the same for you.” – Princess Diana

This is so true. Whenever you do kindnesses expect nothing in return and that is how the blessings come in to your life.

In 2007, marking the tenth anniversary of her death, her sons, Princes William and Harry, honored their beloved mother with a special concert to be held on what would have been her 46th birthday. The proceeds of the event went to charities supported by Diana and her sons.

Continuing her charitable efforts is the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund. Established after her death, the fund provides grants to numerous organizations and supports initiatives to provide care to the sick in Africa, help refugees, and stop the use of land mines.

So here are a few facts on Princess Diana’s effect on the world.
• Diana shook up the British monarchy and speeded its modernization.
• She helped to tear down prejudices about AIDS.
• She raised awareness of eating disorders.
• She promoted opposition to land mines.

These are pretty hefty achievements for a woman of little education who mocked herself for being “thick as a plank.” Add to these a more dubious accomplishment — her skillful manipulation of media images — and it’s clear why, so many years after her death, Diana remains an inescapable presence in British life: mostly, but not always, benign; a restless and seductive ghost. It’s time to peer into the many corners she still haunts.

In her charitable work, Diana set a standard that’s hard to equal. She ignored the prevailing prejudices and fears about AIDS to clasp the hands of sufferers, and embraced leprosy patients in Indonesia. Arbiter remembers a visit to a home for the blind where Diana noticed that an old resident was crying: “She asked what was the matter” and he said, ‘I can’t see you.’ So she took his hand and put it on her face.

We can be thankful that her spirit graced this planet. Her beautiful spirit will always live on. She will always be the Queen of Hearts!

Remembering Michael Jackson on his 56th birthday!

August 29, 1958-June 25, 2009

August 29, 1958-June 25, 2009


True legends never die and Michael Jackson will always be remembered as one of the greatest entertainers ever.I wanted to pause and remember Michael Jackson on the anniversary of his birth.

Michael’s style was unique and totally original. From the time he became famous as a child it was evident that there was something different about this young boy. As he grew and became an adult he proved what a remarkable artist he was with his dynamic album “Thriller.” His dancing was magical and there was no way you could not take your eyes off of him when he performed. He knew how to captivate an audience.

His charitable work was a constant love of his. When he was alive he gave to more charities then any other entertainer at that time. He had great empathy for those that were suffering in this world. He understood suffering as he did not always have an easy life growing up and being famous. They were both difficult and filled with hardships. People only saw the glitz and the glamour and not what went on behind the scenes.

No matter what he was going through Michael always did his best to show appreciation and love for his fans. He understood that they were the reason he was successful.

His passing at the age of 50 was a shock for so many, but I feel that the pressures he went through took a hard toll on his life. What he did was leave a great legacy of work in his music, dancing, poetry, writing, and humanitarian work.

I was privileged to be able to speak to his spirit after his passing and I learned a great deal about Michael Jackson that I never knew. I had not been a fan of his although I always knew he was a great entertainer. I prefer hard rock and roll and his type of music just did not appeal to me.

Channeling his spirit changed my life in more ways than one. I never would have thought of contacting his spirit, but I was asked by a radio station if I could contact him a few days after his passing. I was able to do it on radio and from there I continued channeling him until he had delivered the messages that he wanted his fans to hear and then it was time for him to move forward on his spiritual journey.

His Legacy
In the early 1980s, Michael became a dominant figure in popular music. The music videos for his songs, including those of “Beat It”, “Billie Jean”, and “Thriller”, were credited with breaking down racial barriers. With videos such as “Black or White” and “Scream”, he continued to innovate the medium throughout the 1990s, as well as forging a reputation as a touring solo artist. Through stage and video performances, Jackson popularized a number of complicated dance techniques, such as the robot and the moonwalk, to which he gave the name. His distinctive sound and style has influenced numerous hip hop, post-disco, contemporary R&B, pop, and rock artists.

Jackson’s 1982 album Thriller is the best-selling album of all time. His other albums, including Off the Wall (1979), Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991), and HIStory (1995), also rank among the world’s best-selling. Jackson is one of the few artists to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice. He was also inducted into the Dance Hall of Fame as the first and only dancer from pop and rock music. Some of his other achievements include multiple Guinness World Records; 13 Grammy Awards as well as the Grammy Legend Award and the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award; 26 American Music Awards, more than any other artist, including the “Artist of the Century” and “Artist of the 1980s”; 13 number-one singles in the United States in his solo career, more than any other male artist in the Hot 100 era; and the estimated sale of over 400 million records worldwide. Jackson has won hundreds of awards, making him the most-awarded recording artist in the history of popular music. In what would have been Jackson’s 52nd birthday on August 29, 2010, he became the most downloaded artist of all time in Nokia Music Store. Jackson became the first artist in history to have a top ten single in the Billboard Hot 100 in five different decades when “Love Never Felt So Good” reached number nine on May 21, 2014. Jackson traveled the world attending events honoring his humanitarianism and in 2000, the Guinness Book of Records recognized him for supporting 39 charities, more than any other artist or entertainer

All I can say is that coming from a place of not caring about Michael Jackson I have learned a lot about him and I truly admire him. I know that he is at peace and happy now.

Full Sturgeon Super Moon-August 10, 2014

Full Sturgeon Super Moon-August 10, 2014, Click Picture To Read Article
The full moon phase for this month will be on August 10th (18:23 UTC.) Guess what? This month’s full moon is this year’s “super moon” — it is ultimately the largest moon we will have for 2014. This is because on Aug. 10, the moon will be it’s nearest to the earth for the entire year.

The Perseid meteor showers flash across skies annually in August when the Earth passes through debris trails of shattered comets. Set to peak Aug. 11-13, this year’s event coincides with a Supermoon, a moon that shines 30 percent brighter than a normal full moon. The Supermoon will begin to reach fullness on Sunday, Aug. 10.

The August full moon is also known as Full Sturgeon Moon named after the Native Americans. The Sturgeon moon is remarkably named after the sturgeons of fish available around the Great Lakes, however the tribes in the southern part of the Americas name it the Full Red moon because of the heat the moon seems red and hazy. In European nations it was the named Green corn moon after the corns appear to have green leaves and grains are at its highest peaks.

When the Moon is full, the pull linking of the Moon on one side of the earth and the Sun following creates and unbalanced draw and as humans since we are 80% water it many have a great affect on our own bodily water levels including the earths atmosphere.

This is also known as the second moon of Shawnodese, Spirit Keeper of the South is the Ripe Berries Moon (July 23 to August 22) position on the Native American Medicine Wheel. Iron and garnet are the mineral totems for this moon, raspberry is the plant totem, and the sturgeon is the animal totem. The color is red, and the Thunderbird clan influences the position.

Iron teaches people in this position about their strength and garnet shows them their heart is the source of that strength. From the raspberry they learn about their sweetness and the thorns they project to protect this part of themselves from other people. The sturgeon shows them their depth and their need to teach. The Ripe Berries Moon teaches them how to work from the heart center, how to demonstrate affection, how to face fears, and how to develop leadership abilities. This moon helps develop courage and power. People experiencing the sturgeon energy need to guard against impulsiveness, arrogance, and a tendency to dominate any scenario.

Love meteor showers? Better plan to stargaze on the on the evening of Aug. 12 towards the early morning of August 13. This year’s Perseids meteor shower will peak on these said dates.

The Perseids meteor shower occurs from July 17 to around Aug. 24. When this event peaks, the night sky becomes a beautiful backdrop to more than 60 meteors at a time.

This month’s new moon, on the other hand, will occur on the 25th at 12:23 UTC.

Things To Do During A Full Moon!

Start With:
Cleansing Your Spirit
• Clean out closets and drawers
• Clean off the clutter around your sleeping area
• Clean out old papers and receipts

You can take your time and do this cleaning over the next few weeks. It will benefit you enormously on your spiritual path.

I feel that all full moons are a special time for us to connect to the Great Spirit as well as the moon. Do something special in honor of this full moon.

Many people have asked the question how often they should have a reading done by a psychic. An in depth reading should be done every moon cycle. Since, every moon cycle represents a change it not only affects our external forces but our internal forces as well. Call today to find out what is in store for you during this time of change, (866)-563-3997.

Remembering Sharon Tate 45 Years Later!

Sharon Marie Tate Polanski January 24, 1943 – August 9, 1969

Sharon Marie Tate Polanski January 24, 1943 – August 9, 1969


From Great Tragedy Can Come Blessings!

August 9 marks the 45th anniversary of the passing of beloved 60’s actress, Sharon Tate. By all accounts, she was a remarkably beautiful, kind, and down-to-earth person. She was also a talented and bright rising star as well as an expectant mother. She was a popular model in the 60’s because of her outstanding beauty. She never had a bad word to say about anybody. Everyone who knew her loved her because of her kindness and sweetness. Mia Farrow said she was as “sweet and pure a human being as I have ever known”, while Patty Duke remembered her as “a gentle, gentle creature. I was crazy about her, and I don’t know anyone who wasn’t”.

Roman Polanski has stated that he still remembers her and the time that they were together as the happiest in his life. He said she always carefully packed his suitcase and whenever he travels he always remembers that.

I became a fan of hers in 1967 when I saw her performance in Valley Of The Dolls. She stood out from all of the others in the movie not just because of her beauty, but something within her made me admire her.

It is a huge disservice to Sharon’s legacy that she is often remembered for the wrong reasons. Sharon Tate was so much more than just a murder victim. I believe that a greater emphasis should be placed on the amazing life that she led during her all too brief time on Earth rather than focusing solely on her tragic death.

She was nominated for a Golden Globe Award as “New Star of the Year 1967 – Actress” for her Valley of the Dolls performance. She placed fourth behind Mia Farrow, Judy Geeson and Katharine Houghton for a “Golden Laurel” award as the year’s “Most Promising Newcomer” with the results published in the Motion Picture Exhibitor magazine. She was also runner-up to Lynn Redgrave in the Motion Picture Herald’s poll for “The Star of Tomorrow”, in which box-office drawing power was the main criterion for inclusion on the list. These results indicated that her career was beginning to accelerate and for her next film, she negotiated a fee of $150,000 period
At the time of this tragic murder the media blamed the victims for their death because they were considered hippies and drug addicts.

Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski

Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski


“In death, they made a monster out of her. A monster out of the sweetest, most innocent, lovable human being. She was kindness itself to everybody and everything around her — people, animals, everything. She just didn’t have a bad bone in her body. She was a unique person. It’s difficult to describe her character. She was just utterly good, the kindest human being I’ve ever met, with an extreme patience. To live with me was proof of her patience, because to be near me must be an ordeal. She never had a bad temper, she was never moody. She enjoyed being a wife. The press and the public knew of her physical beauty, but she also had a beautiful soul, and this is something that only her friends knew about.”- Roman Polanski

Sharon’s mother Doris Tate went into deep mourning for many years over the loss of her precious daughter. She was shaken out of her mourning when she was notified that some of the murderers were up for parole. She became a strong force testifying at parole hearings for the murderers of her daughter, making sure that they serve their sentences for the crimes they committed.

Doris Tate

Doris Tate


For the rest of her life, she strongly campaigned against the parole of each of the Manson killers, and worked closely with other victims of violent crime. Several times, she confronted Charles Watson at parole hearings, explaining, “I feel that Sharon has to be represented in that hearing room. If they’re (the killers) pleading for their lives, then I have to be there representing her.” She addressed Watson directly during her victim impact statement in 1984: “What mercy, sir, did you show my daughter when she was begging for her life? What mercy did you show my daughter when she said, ‘Give me two weeks to have my baby and then you can kill me.’ When will Sharon come up for parole? Will these seven victims and possibly more walk out of their graves if you get paroled? You cannot be trusted.”

In 1992, President George Bush recognized Doris Tate as one of his “thousand points of light” for her volunteer work on behalf of victims’ rights.

Because of Doris Tate the Victims Right Program was formed and this has gone on to help millions of people who have been victims of violent crimes. She worked to raise public awareness about the United States corrections system and was influential in the amendment of California laws relating to the victims of violent crime Doris passed on in 1992, but her family has kept her legacy going by founding the Doris Tate Victims’ Rights Foundation.

Sharon Tate’s biographer, Greg King, holds a view often expressed by members of the Tate family, writing in Sharon Tate and the Manson Murders (2000): “Sharon’s real legacy lies not in her movies or in her television work. The very fact that, today, victims or their families in California are able to sit before those convicted of a crime and have a voice in the sentencing at trials or at parole hearings, is largely due to the work of Doris [and Patti] Tate. Their years of devotion to Sharon’s memory and dedication to victims’ rights… have helped transform Sharon from mere victim, [and] restore a human face to one of the twentieth century’s most infamous crimes.”

Out of this deep tragedy there has been a blessing prior to this tragedy there was no support for crime victims. Sharon’s life had great meaning and her death has helped millions.

Her spirit is at peace. As a psychic medium I have spent time finding out if Sharon is a ghost. I know that many believe that she still walks around as a ghost. I have not found that to be the case. When she died she went immediately into the spirit world, along with her baby. Its heart breaking to see, but the police photographs taken of her at the murder site shows a smile on her face. In that last moment of life I know that the angels came and took her. The sightings that have been reported have been dark spirits that mimic her and what occurred. Sharon, along with her deceased loved ones, work spiritually to help those who have gone through great tragedies.

Sharon you will always live on in the hearts of your loved ones and devoted fans. Gone, but never forgotten.

Bless your beautiful spirit Sharon,

Take Advantage of Natural Hydration

Take Advantage of Natural Hydration-Click picture for full article
With the hot summer upon us it is time to make sure that your body is getting sufficient water/hydration. Without water your body cannot function and many people perish in the heat because they believe that they are getting enough water through soda pop, coffee or tea. Not true, you need pure water with minerals to completely hydrate your body. In fact soda pop, coffee or tea can cause a leaching of minerals from the body.

A little known fact for most people is that water alone is not sufficient for complete hydration of your body! It is minerals that keep your body regulated. During high heat minerals are exiting your body at a rapid rate. Mother Nature has always known this and that is why high volume water fruits ripen in the hot summer months. The water in these fruits contains precious minerals and it is pertinent to eat as much of these luscious fruits as possible during the summer.

Watermelon is one of the richest sources of mineral water available along with its positive effect on regulating constipation. Nothing tastes better on a hot summer day than a cold slice of watermelon.

Here is a list of summer fruits in alphabetical order:
• Apricots
• Asian Pears
• Blackberries
• Cantaloupe
• Casaba Melon
• Cherries
• Crenshaw Melon
• Currants
• Figs
• Gooseberries
• Grapes
• Guava
• Honeydew Melon
• Huckleberries
• Lychee Nut
• Mangoes
• Nectarines
• Papayas
• Peaches
• Plums
• Raspberries
• Strawberries
• Watermelon

Consume as much as these as you desire during the hot summer months and you may find that you are shedding weight as well, because of their low fat and high water and fiber content.

Now let us see what Mother Nature has provided in summer vegetables that once again contain high volumes of natural mineral water.

• Arugula
• Avocados
• Beans, Green
• Beans
• Beets
• Collards
• Corn
• Cucumber
• Eggplant
• Garlic
• Kohlrabi
• Mushrooms
• Okra
• Onions
• Peas, Sugar, Snap
• Peppers
• Potatoes
• Shallots
• Squash, Summer
• Swiss chard
• Tomatoes
• Zucchini

These vegetables are high in calcium and magnesium which help regulate the heat in your body. Cooking diminishes the minerals in these vegetables, eat as many raw as possible and lightly steam the others to maintain as much minerals as possible.

Have you ever found yourself experiencing more muscle pain during the hot weather? It could be coming from Dehydration. Dehydration is often a source of muscle pain. Along with Mother Nature’s natural water supply of fresh fruits and vegetables, I recommend you drink purified water mixed with Mineral Water 50/50. This will replace the minerals that are leaving your body continuously. The real key to hydration is drinking beyond your thirst.

Take advantage of the gifts of Mother Nature and you will go through this summer feeling better than you ever have before!

Many blessings,

What is Your Value?

What is Your Value?-Click Picture For Article
A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked. “Who would like this $20 bill?”

Hands started going up. He said, “I am going to give this $20 to one of you – but first, let me do this.”

He proceeded to crumple the 20 dollar note up. He then asked. “Who still wants it?” Still the hands were up in the air.

“Well,” he replied, “what if I do this?” He dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. “Now, who still wants it?”

Still the hands went into the air.

“My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless; but no matter what happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.

Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who love you.

The worth of our lives comes, not in what we do or who we know, but by …WHO WE ARE.

You are special – don’t ever forget it.”

You are priceless! Learn to value and appreciate who you are. Do not look to others to validate your worth.

43 Years Since Jim Morrison Died.

43 Years Since Jim Morrison Died. Click picture to read tribute article
“I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and gasps, “Oh look at that!” Then- whoosh, and I’m gone…and they’ll never see anything like it ever again… and they won’t be able to forget me- ever.” Jim Morrison

Jim Morrison certainly had a clear vision of his life. He was born December 08, 1943, and passed away July 03, 1971. For those who may not know he was a singer, songwriter, philosopher, and poet. He is most famous for his work with the musical group The Doors. I have traveled the world, and, no matter what language, if I sing a few verses of “Light My Fire”, everyone knows that song, and they always smile.

He did not play any musical instruments, but he heard all of his songs in his head. Then he would hum the tune to the other musicians in The Doors, and they would compose what he heard in his head.

At the young age of 21, Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek formed the group The Doors. Within one year they had a recording contract and shot to the top of the rock and roll world with the song “Light My Fire” in the summer of 1967. From there everything they recorded was always on top of the rock and roll charts.

Jim never sought fame and always considered himself first and foremost a poet. As the money came pouring in, the rest of the group started buying fancy cars and houses. Jim did not care about material possessions. He lived very simply. All he usually had with him was his clothes and books. He was an avid reader and never was without a book in his hand. He lived in $10.00 a night motels. He tried to have a car, but every car he ever had he ended up wrecking. He finally gave up on cars.

He wrote four poetry books and paid to have them published. The thing he was most proud of was his books.

Jim was the first rock star to ever be arrested on stage during a performance. This happened December 9, 1967 in New Haven, Connecticut. He was booked on charges of indecency, public obscenity, disturbing the peace and resisting arrest. Before the concert Jim was backstage making out with a girl. A police officer spotted them and said they had to leave. Jim told the officer he was in the band. The cop got pushy with Jim. Jim tried to push him away and then the cop maced him. .

Jim still went on stage and performed the concert. During the last song Jim started to tell the crowd about what happened backstage. The cops shut the music down and came directly onstage to arrest him. From that time onward the police were always looking for an excuse to come after Jim.

Unfortunately his fame could not be contained and it took over his life. He enjoyed many of the perks, but did not like losing his privacy, and found ways to get lost in the crowd. He was an alcoholic and drank mass amounts of whiskey a day. No one could control him, and things went down hill when he was accused of exposing his penis in front of an audience at a rock concert in Miami Florida. He was arrested and faced Federal prison time for lewd lascivious behavior, two misdemeanors for public profanity, two for public exposure and one for public drunkenness. No one could prove that he did such a thing, and, considering how many photographs were being taken nonstop at the concert, it is highly unlikely that it happened because there is no proof.

Because he was so famous and considered a hippie, the courts were going to let him have it full on. For that reason he decided to take a break from everything and go to Paris to see if he could lose his identity. The pressure of facing prison time was more than he could handle. He found no matter where he went he was known. It must have seemed like there was no escaping for him.

The official cause of his death in Paris is from a heart attack. No one knows for sure, but the bottom line is he did die at a young age having changed the face of rock and roll. He has never been forgotten. In fact his fame has grown, and he is considered a rock legend. His estate brings in millions of dollars a year. Every year young people discover the work of Jim Morrison and become fans. Just like he said no one would ever forget him and that was very prophetic.

I saw The Doors perform at the Los Angeles Forum in 1968 at the height of their fame. I had always liked their music, but I was not a big fan of Jim Morrison. At this particular concert he set on the edge of the stage and read poetry for 45 minutes. I was sitting in the floor section right in front of the stage and people kept lighting sparklers and matches and sending them flying at the stage screaming, “Sing Light My Fire.” I had to keep covering my head to keep from getting burned. Finally the group did play Light My Fire and afterwards left the stage. Having lived in Los Angeles and seen every major group like the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, and many more, I considered it the worst concert I had ever seen.

I continued to buy every album The Doors made. The songs were powerful, and I really enjoyed their music. I knew I would never waste my time going to see another one of their concerts.

I was in Santa Monica, which is right next to Venice California and one of Jim’s favorite cities, when I heard that he had died. It was sunset, and, as I watched the sun go down at the ocean, I kept thinking about what a terrible waste and it had only been a few months since Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin had died at the age of 27. Ironically, Jim died on the same date as Brian Jones, of The Rolling Stones, who had died in 1969. Jim wrote a poem for Brian Jones right after his death called, “Thinking of Brian Jones While Sitting in Los Angeles.”

Jim Morrison lived his life as a free spirit and chose not to be tied down to the conventions of the day. He was a loner and his idea of what a good place to go to relax was a topless bar next to the office of The Doors or his favorite hole in the wall Mexican restaurant in Venice California. He never had an entourage nor did he have security. He walked the streets of Venice and Hollywood freely. He proved you could be a superstar and still live in whatever way you wanted.

His being free is what disturbed so many people including the law and the government. The powers that be do not like when someone shows them what true freedom is.

I cannot imagine any current musical artist choosing this type of life. This is what sets Jim Morrison apart from so many of the others. It is sad that the music world today is nothing more than just commercialism. I am thankful that I was around in the 60’s to see some of the greatest creative artists express themselves freely. It was a wonderful time to be alive.

I am glad Jim Morrison shared his talent with the world. He will never be forgotten.

I will leave you with this final thought from Jim Morrison.
“I like people who shake other people up and make them feel uncomfortable.”

Thank you Jim for all you left us,
