The History of Easter Eggs!  Click picture for full article
It’s common knowledge that Easter is a Christian celebration of Christ’s rising, but this holiday also has pagan origins. Where did the colored eggs, cute little bunnies, baby chicks, leg of lamb dinners, and lilies come from? They are all symbols of rebirth and the lamb was a traditional religious sacrifice.

Easter falls in the spring, the yearly time of renewal, when the earth renews itself after a long, cold winter. The word Easter comes to us from the Norsemen’s Eostur, Eastar, Ostara, and Ostar, and the pagan goddess Eostre, all of which involve the season of the growing sun and new birth. The Easter Bunny arose originally as a symbol of fertility, due to the rapid reproduction habits of the hare and rabbit.

Long hard winters often meant little food, and a fresh egg for Easter was quite a prize. Later, Christians abstained from eating meat during the Lenten season prior to Easter. Easter was the first chance to enjoy eggs and meat after the long abstinence.

The egg is nature’s perfect package. It has, during the span of
history, represented mystery, magic, medicine, food and omen. The
egg represents the rebirth of the earth. The long, hard winter is
over; the earth burst forth and is reborn just as the egg
miraculously burst forth with life. The egg, therefore, is believed
to have special powers.

It was buried under the foundations of buildings to ward off evil;
pregnant young Roman women carried an egg on their persons to
foretell the sex of their unborn children; French brides stepped
upon an egg before crossing the threshold of their new homes.

It is the universal symbol of Spring celebrations throughout the
world and has been dyed, painted, adorned and embellished in the
celebration of its special symbolism.

To many Pagans, the golden yolk represents the Sun God, while its
white shell is seen as the White Goddess and the egg as a whole
represents rebirth.

Traditionally, the eggs were marked with brilliant colors along with
various types of bands drawn upon them which represented the cycles
of life, death, and rebirth. Other symbols representing the triple
Goddess, the Sun, and such shapes as triangles, squares, circles,
and dots can usually be found. The drawing of special signs upon a
symbolic object as with the eggs is a form of magic, as is done
when creating a talisman or amulet.

Many condemn pagan traditions and yet so much of what is celebrated stems from these traditions. People are often surprised when I tell them that Native Americans are pagan in origin. The traditions are about celebrating The Creator and creation.

Whatever your beliefs are enjoy and celebrate them during this holy time and allow others to have freedom to celebrate what they believe.

Full Pink Moon April 15, 2014, click picture for article
There is a total lunar eclipse on April 15, 2014, which means we will experience not only a “Full Pink Moon” (any full moon that occurs in April, per Native American tradition) and a “Paschal Full Moon” (the first full moon after the vernal equinox, per Christian tradition), but also, thanks to the eclipse, a “Blood Moon.”

The full moon invites us to release all that dims our light, all that holds us back in the space of our heart and physical environment. The full moon is a time of positive opportunity if you use it correctly. It can increase your positive energy or conversely, it can wreak havoc on your emotions.

Since the full moon pours down a tremendous amount of energy, you must be in a calm state of mind to receive a positive effect. Remember that whatever is going on in your body, mind and spirit will be amplified

The Pink Moon received its name from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other names for this month’s celestial body include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.

Egg Moon: The full moon of April. Also known as the pink moon. Both names indicate the sprouting of seed and the explosion of bright beauty found in the phlox (pink) and other flowers rising for the spring debut.

April Moon Facts & Folklore

Some Christians attribute a prophetic significance to the Blood Moon of April 15, because it will be the first of a lunar tetrad — four total lunar eclipses in a row — occurring in 2014 and 2015, and because each of those eclipses will fall on an important Jewish holiday, Passover or Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles).

On April 20, 1972, the lunar module of Apollo XVI landed on the moon with astronauts John Young and Charles Duke aboard. Thomas Mattingly remained in orbit around the moon aboard the command module. This was the third exportation of the moon.

One day later on April 21, 1972, Apollo XVI astronauts John Young and Charles Duke drove an electric car (LEM) on the surface of the moon. It’s still up there along with some expensive tools and some film that they forgot.

The period from the full Moon through the last quarter of the Moon is the best time for killing weeds, thinning, pruning, mowing, cutting timber, and planting below-ground crops.

Enjoy the full moon!

Life Lessons from the Easter Bunny! Click picture for article
Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

Everyone needs a friend who is all ears.

There’s no such thing as too much candy.

All work and no play can make you a basket case.

A cute tail attracts a lot of attention.

Everyone is entitled to a bad Hare day.

Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits.

Some body parts should be floppy.

Keep your paws off of other people’s jelly beans.

Good things come in small, sugar coated packages.

The grass is always greener in someone else’s basket.

To show your true colors, you have to come out of your shell.

The best things in life are still sweet and gooey.

May the joy of the season fill your spirit with love.
God bless you and have a Happy, Holy, Healthy and Blessed Easter!

Have We Met In Past Lives? Click picture for article.
I am greatly honored to have my article on “Past Lives” featured in Psychic Guidepost Magazine for Spring 2014. The magazine did such a beautiful layout and you can view it by CLICKING HERE . You can zoom in and be able to see the complete article which is a four page spread.

Have you ever met someone and felt that you have known them before? Do you find that you know certain aspects of this person’s personality and yet you have never met before? There is a good reason for this. It’s a strong possibility that you have been together in a previous lifetime. That’s why the connection is instantaneous. The very fact that we are drawn to certain people and certain places is a reflection of the dim memory of previous lives we all possess.

The first time I had this experience was when I was an atheist in my early twenties and I met a man that I knew I had known before in another life. That was quite remarkable considering I had no spiritual beliefs at that time. Obviously I have developed spiritual beliefs and understand life after death since my earlier years. Since that first meeting with someone I felt I knew before I have had it happen on other occasions.

I discuss the significance of past lives with our current life in this article. If you have problems viewing it in the magazine you can CLICK HERE to see my original article on my website. I love doing past life regressions with clients and if you are interested you can contact me about this service.

I hope you enjoy this article and I am more than thrilled that it was published by Psychic Guidepost Magazine.

Music and Movies--Touching Our Spirits, Changing Our Lives. Click picture for article
Have you ever noticed how at times a piece of music or something from a movie touches your heart and mind in a profound way? Afterwards, you begin to realize how you have been affected both psychologically and spiritually. These are truly aha” moments. If you are really spiritually attuned, you may feel it as an electric current within your body or as a tuning of your personal radio signal. When we remember that we are beings of vibration, it all makes perfect sense.

Did you know that people can become mentally conditioned to respond to a set stimulus like a series of tone signals? It works almost like a telephone does in that you dial a certain combination of numbers, and then that special sequence keys the equipment to connect one instrument to another.

Some people can receive messages from Spirit through song lyrics or something they see or hear in a movie. Spirit can bring an apt verse to mind that provides the answer to the conundrum; hearing it in this way is a form of clairaudience. Songs and movies that resonate with an individual can be used to send information to that individual. Spirit resonates with the “tuning” that the recipient of the message has and sends the message with “the right vibes,” so to speak.

Please join renowned astrologer Leslie McGuirk and me as we discuss how Music and Movies touch our spirits. This Will Be A Live Internet Radio Program On April 8, 2014 At 9:00 PM Eastern Time, 8:00 PM Central Time, 6:00 PM Pacific Time. Click Here To Go To The Radio Program Station.

Remember if you cannot hear the live broadcast this program will be available to listen to 24 hours a day by clicking on the same link to listen to the program live on the Internet. It is archived permanently and always available.

After all, we are not humans having spiritual experiences, but we are spirits having human experiences!

Find Out If You Are A Light Worker? Click Picture For Quiz
Do you ever get the feeling that what you have experienced spiritually in your past no longer serves you and don’t feel a “fit” with other religions or beliefs? Perhaps you are someone who feels that they must strike out on their own and “leave home” so to speak.

This is a time of great spiritual change as the worlds of the spirit and this material one are co-mingling. As you already “Feel” one is layered on top of the other. You are awakening to a very strong pull of the spirit that is calling to you. This pull is what some call God, The Creator, Great Spirit, Source Energy, The Universe, and (I feel more aptly) The Light. It is a surge of spiritual power that is more solid than stone or the ground under your feet. There is no need to feel fearful. If you weren’t ready for this next step you wouldn’t have been called. It is just that simple. It is what led Buddha to renounce his life of luxury as a prince; called Christ into the wilderness and has reached out to many inspired teachers and people throughout history. It calls you to the oneness of all and to leave your old ways of fearful “Us vs Them” thinking behind you. You are being called to the remembering of who and what you are. You are being called into the Light. You are being called into a life of service to Life and Love.

Here is a short questionnaire that should help you find out if this is something that is calling out to you in your life.

AM I A LIGHT WORKER?
Answer the Questions Below
1) Do you feel a sense of time urgency within you?
2) Do you feel draw to help humanity?
3) Do you feel draw to spirituality?
4) Do you get a persistent ringing sound in your ear?
5) Have you been told by others that you are too sensitive?
6) Do you feel different from others?
7) Do you believe that spiritual methods can heal any situation?
8. Do you know that you are here for a higher purpose?

If you answered yes to these questions and resonate with the definitions of a Light Worker given, the chance is that you are a light worker, however, only you can truly answer this question for yourself. You may also have tried to follow your families’ religion devoutly, but feel that you have not felt like you are getting the right answers or maybe you have just “outgrown” it and feel the need to search on your own. If you feel this need and you receive the prompts, you are on your new path. You have reached a point on your journey where you are ready for a spiritual upgrade.

Know that what you are experiencing is real. Do not worry about what anyone else thinks about regarding your experience. All you have to remember is that to those of us who receive this feeling no explanation is necessary. To the others who don’t know no explanation will suffice. You are embarking on a journey that will lead you to many new and wonderful experiences.

There are many light workers on the planet at this moment in time; a lot of us seem to experience an extraordinary amount of obstacles, challenges and health issues in our lives. I think the reason for this is so that we can learn compassion and empathy through our own trials and be more understanding to the trials of others. It is a light workers task to help other people on their journey in life and that is why they need so much experience of life.

You are light-workers, your time has come and your job now is to stand in the light, to let your light shine and to allow those who would take up fear to gather around your light and feel peace and hope.

Many blessings,

Spring Cleaning for the Soul and the Home. Click for article
It’s time to think about spring cleaning. Think of it as a meditative exercise to sweep out the old energies of winter and make way for spring abundance. Do it with the conscious intent of clearing out old energies to set the stage for new good fortune.

In spring cleaning the first thing to clean is your spirit/soul. Smudging is one of the best ways to clean your spirit, body, house, and even your work place. Click here for details on how to do Smudging.

Next is cleaning out your house. Start with your closets. Most of us have closets that are bursting with stuff we have not used for a long time. Donate items that you no longer can use. Old clothes can be recycled and used for cleaning rags. Nothing feels better than having a clean organized closet.

From there you can start cleaning one room at a time. After you finished your home you can also clean out your office. From there you can start cleaning out your flower beds or flower pots. Nothing feels better than putting your fingers into Mother Earth.

Once finished, treat yourself to a cleansing and relaxing bath. Light some candles and add some of your favorite bath oil or use 20 drops of lavender oil for a cleansing and rejuvenating bath. Get rid of that winter skin by using a natural scrub! Click Here To Read How To Remove The Toxins From Your Body. And finish with a good natural moisturizing lotion.

When you have finished cleaning your house and soul you are going to feel refreshed. Your mind will be clearer and Your spirit will sing!

Happy Spring Time!
