We are riding the wave of expansive cosmic rebirthing – the rebirth of Mother Earth.

Rebirth follows the dying; the dissolving of the old and therefore the re-birth comes in the wake of what has been before, but now in a rejuvenated, shape and form.  It is revitalized, reactivated.

It cannot be what has come before – that is now redundant.

It has to be that resurrection into a higher Light-embodied form and therefore moves into a much higher vibrational frequency band.

As the earth is being reborn – so are we.

So many people resist the rebirthing process, by refusing to let go of the old: the old thinking, feeling, hanging onto old hurts, pains, grudges, and whatever else.  The more one tends to hang onto all the emotional baggage, as long one is held prisoner in the 3D world.  For one now become a prisoner to one’s own…

I have the honor and privilege of attracting clients going through a tough process. They come to me, trying to sort out what is going on and why they feel crazy at times – yet psychotherapy and pharmacological solutions aren’t touching the symptoms that they are feeling.

Kind of a heavy term, I realize. It’s a real phenomenon that affects many and is not to be taken lightly. I help people with the psychic opening/spiritual & energetic components of what they are experiencing. Our culture has not been kind in supporting individuals having these experiences.  We have a rigid, allopathic model in western medicine.  Outside of that, our adolescent culture at times lacks the depth found in tribal cultures, mystical appreciation and religious experiences.  I strive to shed light on the client’s pain in a way that will serve and fuel their personal transformation.

The clients that have come to me in this state may be experiencing one and likely many of the following:

  • Sleep disturbances/sleep cycle changes needing more, or less or being kept awake by bodily and psychic sensations
  • Diet changes – certain foods are now intolerable or cravings crop up for a few days or a few weeks
  • Feeling energies more strongly – sensing spirits, feeling more exhausted by groups of people or negativity
  • Neurological sensations – stronger nerve sensations in their body, body parts feeling heavier or lighter than normal, tingling and prickly sensations
  • Sensations of separateness from one or both sides of their body, feeling like they are two people trying to work as one body
  • Vision changes to include seeing flashes of light in their peripheral vision and seeing shadows and colors more acutely
  • Sensitivities to hearing/auditory input, hearing voices, peoples’ thoughts, etc.
  • Stronger emotions that are often other peoples’
  • Decreased desire for activities that used to excite the person

This list is a beginning. You may be experiencing other things that fall under the umbrella of this phenomenon of Spiritual Psychosis. I’ve helped clients who are feeling paralyzing anxiety that is no longer being affected by medications – by helping them realize that the anxiety that they are feeling is not theirs but their mate’s.

Many of us learn at a young age, for all kinds of reasons – mine was that I was literally hit by a car – how to leave our body. Energetic disassociation – it looks similar to psychological disassociation– though it can be less noticeable to most people. When people who leave their body easily, begin to experience a spiritual awakening, being in their body can become very uncomfortable. As you can see, referenced by some of the symptoms above.

We are spirit in a human body. Our body is our best divining rod, truly. I encourage and work with clients to develop a new relationship with their body and their freshly found spiritual and psychic experiences. Spiritual Psychosis is a time of transformation and awakening; working with psychic empowerment professionals, like myself, will be key to your navigation of this process. The biggest message that I like to help people with – is that they are not alone and that this process is not as foreign as it may feel!

Lastly, I am neither a medical professional nor a clinician.  I hold a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and a Masters Certificate in Holistic Psychology.  I base my knowledge upon the experiences of my life and of running and growing a successful spiritual practice, in Wilmington, Delaware.  I work closely when warranted, with medical professionals and mental health professionals — to support the client going through spiritual psychosis, responsibly and ethically.  Contact me with any questions:



Living Intuitively


How might I live, more intuitively?

I’m often asked this question from clients, in all of its forms.

When we live more intuitively, we allow ourselves to be more grounded and to make decisions from a stronger foundation.  Our intuition can be so helpful in stressful times when we feel that we are ‘threading the needle’!

So when you are wanting to remember to connect to your intuition and to live more intuitively, here are 10 ways to do so:

1) Breathe. Deeply. Firing up our intuition starts with feeling more relaxed. Take a few deep breaths and you’ll be ready to receive!
2) Ground yourself. Put your feet on the floor, or better yet on the ground outside. Imagine that you are connecting to the Earth’s core and sharing its energy.
3) Pop into the passenger’s seat, metaphorically speaking. Imagine yourself as riding shot-gun and sitting back while watching what appears through the windshield…the windshield on your mind’s eye, with your eyes closed that is. Be the observer.
4) Play with your world! Ask your world for a sign in response to a question that you pose, “should we go out for seafood this weekend?” As you move through the day, watch for signs. Maybe you notice fish everywhere. Maybe you sense a drying up of signs pointing to seafood. Have fun with this! Noticing signs, symbols and synchronicities in our outer world put us more in tune with our inner world too.
5) Journal. Much of what fills our minds and our emotions simply wants expression. Once we write down some of what fills us up, we clear the way for that calm, receptive listening mode that our intuition operates from.
6) Meditate. As few as 5 minutes a day, of mind-clearing meditation, is one of the quickest routes to your intuition and your psychic side.
7) Unplug. Our culture is one of distraction. Unplug for a few minutes and realize what your intuition may sound like! Maybe it speaks to you with a foreign accent? Maybe it sings to you! Or chants…
8) Intend it. Simply setting an intention each morning, that you’re going to align with your intuition will set you on its course! I like to say, “Intentionality is everything!”
9) Trust you. Intuition is your inner guru. Your higher self. Trust that the intuitive hits that you have been getting are indeed, your intuition!
10) Dream. Pay attention to your dreams! They are your intuition speaking to you, while your guard is down. Record them and enjoy them.

**PSST! When your intuition knows you are paying attention it will communicate more loudly and frequently!

Cord Cutting


Every contact we have with someone, particularly when it is emotionally charged, and very strongly so if it is sexually charged – forges a cording of energy between two people. These can become very strongly entrenched in our energy bodies and subsequently, our physical bodies. Periodically cutting cords — especially when we feel we are thinking of the person too frequently, mentally looping incessantly whether at our own urging or the other person’s, distracted or tired (energetic cords can and will drain us), experiencing emotions or thoughts that feel mildly foreign to us, or generally stuck or held back in life – is a healthy, regular spiritual practice to employ.

It is an energetic fact that cords are created between people in relationship. This includes nuclear families, friends that we are close to, co-workers and lovers. Having empathy for someone without discharging the other person’s energy, can create cording to us.

Healers must be extra careful and vigilant because cording can occur with clients if you aren’t aware.

It’s less about cutting the cords than letting go of the proverbial tug-of-war rope. Releasing. Laying it down. So if the instructions for severing of these cords feels harsh to you – consider the laying down, releasing any taught-ness to these cords as might occur if you laid down a rope that you’d been pulling on.


Instructions for cord cutting:
• Get into a calm, clear space as if you are going to meditate.
• Reduce distractions for the next 10 minutes
• Close your eyes (this helps you get into the alpha brain wave state more quickly where your subconscious gets to be affected in positive ways by this exercise)
• Breathe easily and rhythmically, slowing down your heart rate
• Call in Archangel Michael (he wields and mighty sword that is very effective in this process, see graphic above)
• Ask him to cut all cords of connection with either anyone draining your energy or a specific person.
• Breathe and relax while in your mind’s eye you watch him cut the cords.
• Pay attention to how your body feels and what area of your body feels affected by this – where you may feel tension, a release, relaxation, warmth, coolness, sharp pain, etc.
• When the process feels complete, then ask for healing and loving white light to be brought in to fill any cauterized cords or spaces left open by this process of cord cutting. If you saw cords being pulled out by their roots allow the white light to fill all of these spaces.
• Finally, see/feel your entire being begin to fill with white light and watch it extend beyond the lines of your physical body out into your aura.
• Mentally express gratitude and thanks and feel free to move about your day.


I’ve been going through a breakup this month….a breakup with a 20 year old habit. As I break up with the one – replete with the on-again and off-again qualities that we’ve all experienced around breaking up with people, I’m examining other old habits as well.

It really doesn’t matter what the habit is – it can be self-judgment, a particular view of or relationship with food/alcohol/caffeine, procrastination – it does not matter what form the habit takes. It isn’t necessarily a ‘negative’ or ‘unhealthy’ habit either – this is about examination of and opening up to ways that may serve our souls more deeply and allow us to serve the world more expansively.

What I’m loving about this process is the level of examination that is taking place. None of it goes as deeply as you may imagine – which is the beauty of this.

I arrived at this place, out of the blue really, but certainly while listening to my intuition. I noticed when I went to engage with this habit, somewhere around the end of January, my desire/motivation/attitude towards this behavior felt different to me. I’m a big ‘feeler’, you see, being a strong Empath (go here for more information on being an Empath

What I began to do then, was to treat these shifted feelings as new friends and turn them over like fall leaves deserving much attention for their vibrancy and color. Simply observe them and then move on to new feelings that came with those and do the same.

I stayed out of analysis and judgment of me, my habit, my relationship to my habit – I merely observed it all as if I was getting to know a new person whom I knew nothing about.

As I really listened and watched, I learned that the absence of this habit – or the prospect of its absence, allowed for some beautiful spaces in my life and being to allow other things to take root. To allow other emotions, other high-vibrational states of being and feeling good, room for other intuitive messages to pop through.

I read recently that if we aren’t losing friends then we aren’t growing. I would re-frame it to say that if we aren’t changing our relationships to friends, habits, the world then we aren’t growing. We aren’t meant to stay in stagnant relationship to anything or anyone – we are meant to grow and change and evolve as spirits in human bodies.

You might examine a breakup with an old way for yourself. Get quiet, tune into your intuition and see what comes up in your life as wanting attention. It may be that some of your ways are up for transformation vs. an ending. Check it out. Enjoy the process!


As a professional psychic, medium and energy healer, I get this question in many forms, often.   I start with this explanation:

I refer to spirits, the psychic realms, energy, deceased people, spirit guides, etc. as all from the unseen realms. I described this/these unseen realms as ‘Spirit’. God, Universe, Higher Self, Collective Unconscious, Subconscious can all be subbed in for this phrase, ‘Spirit’ as well. You see, I do drop them all into one category, mostly to avoid esoteric discussion and philosophizing during a client’s session since I am on the clock, more to the point that titles and labels mean a bit less to me in the process as the information that wants to come through.

I am a channel, a vessel, a conduit for information and healing energies from Spirit. While I formally trained and practiced before opening my practice, this isn’t so much ‘what I do’ as ‘what I facilitate’ from Spirit.

We all have access to the sensitivities, information, healing. It’s a matter of fine-tuning our perceptions, confidence and knowing. For some this process is simpler than for others. A certainty is that we all have to bring a huge dose of humility and a commitment to our own healing, if we are to step into healing and helping others by bringing through Spirit.

Sometimes clients will ask me, “How do you know you are speaking to Aunt Sue/my Spirit Guide/your Guide/God?” Great question and sometimes I’m given information for the client to hear and work to identify with, in terms of who is delivering the info through me – often, more often than not, I’m not given much identifying info and am required to work on faith in where and from whom/from which energy the information is coming from.

Lastly, so many people ask what are some ways to develop their own intuitive listening and knowing skills – meditation is key! Quieting the mind so that we may clear some static and deeply listen, is a crucial step. For more info meditation check out this blog post:

Beautiful statement on living in flow…

Endless Light and Love

surfs up

In Taoism the Tao ‘Wu Wei’ is often compared to a river. When we talk about going with the flow, we are describing the Tao as having a definitive direction, just like a river flowing in a certain way. Since we live in the Tao, it is important to understand its direction, just as those who swim in a river must understand how its currents work and how this effects their ability to swim, or not.

Moving in flow with the Tao is like swimming downstream. It requires little or no effort at all and you can travel a large distance in a very short time without expending all your energy. Moving against the Tao is like swimming upstream. No matter how hard you try and how hard you swim against the flow of the river, you will struggle to get anywhere and very soon you become exhausted and will…

Lotus Branding


It was a series of intuitive flashes that brought this belly tattoo to life. A desire to baptize-as-beautiful some bodily damage rendered during child bearing; a passion for honoring my creative center mixed with some celebration of the deep call to service through energetic healing–all of these left me facing a consult with a tattoo artist to run through options of how to make manifest all of this – on my belly.

Some irony here is that I’ve never wanted a tattoo. I’d not connected with any imagery that I could picture being branded upon my body for the rest of my life.

Artist: “I won’t touch or tattoo over these areas of your abdomen for these reasons. Typically this is how a tattoo over a much-less affected area would go…and your areas are profoundly affected. “ Me, to Artist, “Is there a way to make something work? What can you do?” Then I got to witness Artist’s energy start to bubble and ping….”Well, I can incorporate the scarring as negative space for some Japanese finger waves, like this…” he takes me to examples of images… “Then a lotus could emerge from it, something like this..”

Me, “Sold. How much can I put down today as a deposit?” I left ten minutes later with a future, 5-hour appointment booked.

Between this and my scheduled appointment, I did ask a few people about their tattoo stories and experiences. If they relayed to me how much pain may be involved, I didn’t hear it. I heard things like, “it feels like a series of bee stings and gets more annoying over time more than anything…”

Appointment day arrived and I posted for my appointment. After a brief review of the artwork and some prepping of my belly, we got started. First needles down, my response is, “Um, that hurts. It feels like an exacto knife going into my skin. Forgo any test areas – just keep rolling through.”

I called a mental/spiritual meeting with all of my Guides/Guidance system. I asked my body to release DMT, and any all chemicals/neurotransmitters and energies to reduce pain, reduce blood pressure and increase my tolerance for this experience. I asked for the healers that I channel to flow as much through me and to me as possible for this experience.

My Guides showed me that each needle down from Artist, infused my body with healing energy. I was being tortured artistically (of my own choosing) by a Healer. Ok, I agreed, this is good. But why so much pain? They began to stand around us fascinated. My Guides asked me if it felt like a cactus being rolled over my belly? Or a sander being applied to my skin? I could feel Guides and Angels stroking my hair and supporting me energetically, the whole time. Artist and I talked for the first hour or so. We discovered commonalities in our passions for education, community contacts and walking through the world in alternative ways. I reached a point of needing to ‘focus’ on pain reduction in ways other than conversation.

I found myself, as a frequent out-of-body traveler, unable to leave my body. Me to Artist, “I can leave my body quite easily. I’ve been doing it since age 7 that I can remember. I’m trying to do so and the pain of each needling commands me into my body. This call to Presence is unique and fascinating.” And off I went into my zone again for awhile.

I practiced Tonglen meditation for awhile. It’s a Tibetan Buddhist practice of breathing in pain, transmuting it and expelling less pain, essentially. It was less than effective in this case.

I turned to mantra, mentally. This did help and it took my perspective to a level of attention, that while still in the pain was also above the pain. I have no trouble existing at multiple levels of consciousness simultaneously, so this approach worked a bit. I was surfing the mantra of something around love, beauty, peace, no pain, etc. This started to get me to a borderline comfortable space (not much about this 5 hour foray could be described as comfortable), until of course, I began to feel like I was going into shock. I had begun to feel that I was leaving my body and also felt my hands, arms and feet chattering with cold. I was heady and feeling like I was loosing it or slipping into some version of shock. So dramatic sounding, I know! Me to Me, mentally, “We are not pulling this Drama here. I’m sure Artist knows CPR but I’ll be damned if this process is going to be interrupted by something like that. He probably won’t be able to finish this tattoo today if he has to do CPR on me.” Me to Artist, “OK. So I’m feeling really cold. Can you please turn up the temperature in here? “ Long pause while he looks at me and contemplates, “Ok.” Gloves come off, he disappears and reappears a few minutes later. My body warms and I stay out of that shock zone.

I begin to realize, that we are only about halfway through (2 hours in) by now. I’m trying to figure out how I’m going to make it through this. I ask for a break again and he looks at me funny – I tell him I really only want my headphones to try and listen to an audio book. Getting them and getting re-started, with narration in my ears, seems to work for a minute. I become acutely aware of the brightness of the lights and find a way to cover my eyes and begin with some yogic breathing/pranayama. I tried nadi shodhan breathing but to no avail. It involved just too much attention. I settled in with ujjayi breathing, a very natural state for me. Ujjayi breathing is best known by the loud, nasal type hissing that accompanies it – this sound is also called ajapa mantra. Ajapa mantra, also known as the ‘unspoken mantra’ serves three purposes, all of which felt critical to this process. It helps to slow the breath down, in order to focus awareness on the breath and to prevent your mind from wandering and finally to regulate the smooth flow of breath. I’d had a chat with Artist on whether breathing interfered with my directions to ‘stay still’ during the body art process. He said he can work with typical, diaphragmatic breathing. Well I knew I was going all deep and loud and filling my belly with this one. It was the ticket though, he’d had to deal in my mind. We never discussed it – I just got loud and rhythmic and he rolled right along with it. Whether my belly was distended or deflated with air, he did his thing. I initially tried for a deep, belly-filling breath before needles down – but realized that either direction worked to reduce the pain and settle into a flow with him.

Inspired by Maya Angelou, I recently swore off of cursing.   In reality it has been reduced while not completely eliminated. During this body art process I uttered only one curse word. I’m pretty proud of that fact. More so, I’m feeling pretty victorious and courageous. I’ve been told I now have ‘street cred’ for undergoing a 4+ hour tattoo on my belly as a first-piece-of-body-art. Not going for street cred, but for healing and personal expansion, I suppose street cred has its place in those processes.

Matt Stankis at Northside Tattoo in Wilmington, DE is the consummate, body Artiste professional. He’d come highly recommended to me and my experience will perpetuate this high level recommendation.

Having been on steroids during one of my pregnancies, they wreaked havoc on my belly skin. Matt doesn’t tend to do scar work and has a particular approach for stretch marks. My case was something I don’t know that he’d seen before and I give him huge kudos for swiftly coming up with a way to artistically honor this process and part of my body for me.

All of my spiritual healing and guidance have served me well – I had very little redness from the get go and a swift healing process. Nine days out I am still peeling a bit and will post photos in the future. In the meantime, know that the verbal feedback is a whole slew of impressed beings with Matt Stankis’ artistry.

I’m rooted in walking my walk.

When people come to me for a reading, healing or for mentoring through their own intuitive processes, I call them on their stuff. It’s part of how Spirit chooses to move through me. My deal with my Guidance/Guides is that I share what I get and it is always for peoples’ ‘highest good’. This is an early intention that has stuck – it helps me to channel as opposed to filtering messages for people. I’m told I make it sound simple and easy – it isn’t always so.

One of the things that keeps it less simple or easy is that as a spiritual practitioner, as a spiritual teacher and leader in the community, I’m required to do my work and walk my walk. A huge pet peeve of mine – is when people preach and don’t practice. When spiritual practitioners dole out teachings and advice without a commitment to their own growth and awareness.

I see all of us spiritual practitioners as being in a leadership position and in teaching roles. People seek out our services for their own, life guidance. IMHO, we then, must model that – we must do our own internal work and grow our self-awareness as a way of life.

Challenges of this process:

  • I require myself to be incredibly real. Even if it is ugly. But it also means I get to teach people how to be human too.
  • Honesty is a way of life. And this can lead to shifts in relationships when they aren’t authentic ones.
  • I’m not always in the mood to lead or talk and this is where it can get ugly, real and honest.
  • Daily practices can feel like thorns on some less-than-rosy days.
  • Open-hearted living can beget heartbreak more frequently.
  • Remembering that my ego can be impatient and bitchy.

Joys of walking my walk:

  • I get to teach people what Being and being human can look like.
  • I get to feel other peoples’ emotions in ways that serve them, profoundly.
  • I get to ‘norm’ intuition for others to get cozy with theirs.
  • I get to witness awareness expansion and consciousness-raising in those around me in ways that reverberate across time and space.
  • I get to be humble, every single day.
  • I’m at peace with my ego most of the time.
  • I understand peoples’ wounds, having experienced woundings.
  • I live and breathe joy!

 Being a spiritual practitioner is not for the faint of heart. If it were more would do it. It’s a critical role for our planet’s history though– some say we’re on the verge of bankrupting our environment and others say we’ve maimed our economy. What better time to grow more aware and step up to lead, than in times of strong need? As world events, personal struggles, calls to serve rise up in us all – why not get real and be real for others? We are all ‘spiritual leaders’ and have the capacity to be teachers for others. Why not start walking your walk?


Love, P.S.





I had the privilege of hearing Maya Angelou speak in 1993 at Bill Clinton’s Presidential Inauguration.  She is Love and Strength, incarnate.  RIP and enjoy your angel dance, dear One.
