Spring Stuff


It’s been awhile since I’ve posted here, but I’ve been trying to plan new events and get everything together as my kids go on spring break. There is painting to be done in our household, which will take up some of our vacation days, and my husband’s birthday is actually on Easter this year, which means we’ll be entertaining his family. So much to do, so little time–even with the Wheel of the Year turning, some things remain constant!

I did want to take a moment, though, to re-connect with you folks in cyberspace, and to let you know about some upcoming events that I’ll be doing. Here’s the low-down:

I’ll be appearing (and disappearing, ha ha) at the Victory of Light Expo on Saturday, April 10 and Sunday, April 11, 2010 at the Sharonville Convention Center in Sharonville, Ohio. On Saturday at noon, I’ll present Ask A Medium, a talk based on my new book of the same name. The presentation will also include Spirit messages for the audience members. I will also be doing a limited number of personal readings for clients at my booth on the lower level of the convention hall, and I will sell copies of all of my books as well as sign for those who would like an autograph. Be sure to arrive early if you’d like to sign up for a reading–the spots usually go fast! For more information about the festival, times, admission fees, and the like, please visit the expo’s website.

Along with my office partner Joanne Franchina of Inner Compass, I am thrilled to welcome one of my favorite teachers, Sharon Anne Klingler, to the Cincinnati area. Sharon will present a weekend of events and workshops sure to please everyone interested in mediumship and their own personal path to spiritual fulfillment. Read on for a full description of Sharon’s events:

This workshop is more than a peek into the mystical powers and histories that lay hidden from the average person; it is a precise training in their application and use. The Seven Rays are the fuel that drives each activity. Learn how to apply these powerful forces to your own initiation. This workshop covers:

The Seven Rays & the Ascended Masters

Synchronicity of ray power in occupational, spiritual & personal directives.
Balancing polarized ray forces & utilizing energy phases.
Learning from the mystic Masters: ancient exercises in energy, prophecy & healing
Your Initiation & Discipleship

Forces of initiation: a spiritual tsunami.
Energy discernment: influence & confluence of power.
Levels of initiation: revelation into body, mind & mystery.

Saturday, April 24, 9:30 am – 4:30 pm (includes a break for lunch).
$95; Early registrations (by April 16) $90.
Sharon Anne Klingler, guest instructor.


Learn about the past and future in your evolution. Find out about the rites of initiation; discover your past lives in the ancient mystery schools; and map out where you’re headed next in your work with the Masters. (For special processes, please bring any gemstones or pieces of jewelry that may have significance for you). This workshop includes:

Investigating Your Ancient Histories & Present Powers

Past-life regression to the secret societies.
Freemason & mystical initiation practices.
Living a mystic’s life in a modern world.
Your Future in the Plan

I am very excited about my upcoming TAROT INTENSIVE WEEKEND Workshop, scheduled for Friday, May 14 through Sunday, May 16, 2010. To register for this event, please visit my website, but read on to see all of the cool stuff we’ll be doing:

Ancient and mysterious, Tarot cards have fascinated humanity for centuries. The Tarot can be used as a divination tool, a meditation focal point, a sounding board for ideas, and a source of great inspiration. Whether you are a beginning reader or a seasoned Tarot professional, this intense weekend devoted to Tarot study and work will bring you deeper meanings for yourself and your interaction with this wise and venerable tradition.

Friday evening will include the following:

➢ Tarot overview and a brief history, including the Major and Minor Arcanas, the suits and their meanings, numerology and symbolism in Tarot, and how to care for your deck. A special Tarot connection experience will be conducted.

Saturday will include the following:

➢ Handling and shuffling the Tarot
➢ Spreads versus throws: what’s the difference and when to use what
➢ Exploring interactions between the cards
➢ Telling a story with Tarot
➢ Timing in Tarot
➢ Finding key ideas in spreads and throws
➢ Divination with Tarot
➢ Meditation exercises with key Tarot cards to enhance the student’s spiritual connection to the Divine and the oracle

Sunday will include the following:

➢ Tapping your intuition using Tarot
➢ Court cards in Tarot: who are these people?
➢ Reversed cards
➢ Card combinations
➢ Sample spreads to use for specific types of questions
➢ How to design your own Tarot spreads
➢ Using different decks to deepen and enhance readings

And much, much more!

This weekend experience will include many interactive experiences with the Tarot, and students will be expected to conduct readings using the cards for themselves and for others. All students will be awarded a certificate of completion at the end of the weekend.

Required: A standard 78-card Tarot deck. The Rider-Waite deck is preferred, but any is acceptable. Bring as many decks as you like, but you must have at least one to work with in class.

DATE: Friday, May 14 — Sunday, May 16, 2010
TIME: 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Friday
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday (one hour lunch break)
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday (one hour lunch break)
PRICE: $165 if registered by April 25, 2010
$195 after April 25, 2010 or at the door


And, to enhance the Tarot workshop, I’ll facilitate a new TAROT WISDOM CIRCLE beginning Wednesday, June 9, 2010. In this fun, informal setting, we’ll explore lots of different ways to use and read Tarot. The circle will be open to anyone at any skill level, and you can participate in as many meetings of the Circle that you like. Sessions will cost $12 per night, or you can buy 5 sessions for only $50. We’ll meet for 10 Wednesday evenings from 7 to 8:30 p.m. throughout the summer at my office in Blue Ash. I think this will be an exciting, experiential way for us all to deepen our connection to Tarot, that inspiring and fascinating tool!


As you can see, I’ve got lots of interesting things planned as we move forward into spring. I hope you’ll be able to join me for some of these events.

And I’ll see you again soon here on the blog!

May your Easter/Ostara basket overflow with blessings!


in Just–

In honor of the first day of Spring, I wanted to post a poem about the season. e. e. cummings has charmed and challenged me ever since I first read his work when I was a high school freshman. So here, to help us welcome the change of the season and to honor the turning of the Wheel of the Year–a favorite poem:

in Just-
spring when the world is mud-
luscious the little
lame balloonman

whistles far and wee

and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it’s

when the world is puddle-wonderful

the queer
old balloonman whistles
far and wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing

from hop-scotch and jump-rope and



balloonMan      whistles

e.e. cummings

Go out today, breathe in the fresh air (yes, even you, New York, where I heard it’s snowing!), and know that this is a time of new beginnings. What will you start today? What intention will you set? What you concentrate on now, what you plant in the Spring, will grow as the year progresses. Make sure it’s something you really want.

Many blessings to you on this very special day.

Spring and The Radio



Spring is just around the corner, and I am so excited to see the sun again and to feel the warmer temperatures! I hope you’re enjoying the beginning of this new planting season. What are you seeding in your proverbial garden this year? Remember: whatever you plant now will come to fruition, so think hard about what you want to create and nurture it with positive energy!

I am still hard at work on Book Number 3, tentatively titled SPIRIT FAQ, but I can see the deadline on the horizon, and I’m happy to be coming to the end of this writing cycle. Even though I’m busy with that project, I’m still finding some time to fit in a few other events. This coming weekend, I’ll be appearing on 2 Internet radio shows. Here’s the scoop:

Friday, March 20, I’ll once again be on ParaVision Radio with Jamie discussing my book SO YOU WANT TO BE A MEDIUM? and various other topics. To listen, go to the website:

The show begins at 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

On Sunday, March 22, I’ll be appearing on Tarot Talk with Raven and George at 1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. We’ll be discussing my books, Tarot, angels, and lots of other things, plus I’ll be doing readings on the air. To listen, go here:

There are instructions there about calling in to the show, too.  I hope you can join us–both shows should be a lot of fun!

Take care of yourself, enjoy the dawning of a bright new season, and know that you are a precious child of the Universe!
