Our animal companions can help us in working with spirits.

Animals are very sensitive to spirits surrounding us. They sense minute changes in atmospheric and energy fields on levels we can't access. Afterall-we have all heard of animal behavioral changes foretelling earthquakes, tornadoes, and other physical phenomena. It only seems logical that they will be sensitive to spiritual energy and literal harmonic vibrations of spirit manifestation.

My four canine companions live in a house of many spirits of many types and I often observe them 'watching' something, or some one, as the case may be, that is not visibly there. They seem to sense the spirits as they access the energetic link within the anchoring vessel to cross the bridge from the spiritual or astral planes, to our earthly one.

These are two of my much loved companions--Molly, a Schipperke, and French Fry (her real name WAS Magnolia but everyone said she looked like a tiny burnt french fry when I got her so....she is now Miss French Fry-Frenchy for short!)

This is Bullwinkle, probably one of the smartest animal companions I have ever had--at 8 years--he is the elder in our home.

And of course, 'demon dog' also needs to be mentioned! Miss Elizabeth AKA Lizzy AKA Hell hound. When I'm saying "NO, Bad Dog!" you can count on it being directed at her about 75% of the time! AH! But I love her still!!!

Our animal companions also give added benefit as they help calm us and place us in a more relaxed state so that we can be open to spiritual communication. They become meditative tools for us. I know that when I'm curled up on my couch, surrounded by my companions, stroking their fur and absorbing the unconditional love they give me, I feel more open to the mental 'touch' of my Spirit companion's communication.

If you do not have an animal companion, and are thinking of bringing one into your life--think hard and seriously on adopting a 'rescue'. The shelters are full of unwanted puppies, kittens, dogs and cats. Please don't support irresponsible breeders and pet 'mills' by buying when you can save a life. ALL of my animal companions are rescues-I actually work independently and with a cat rescue group myself, to tame and find homes for ferals and other unwanted pets. At this moment I have three litters of rescued kittens that will be going to new homes. I'm going to stop here-before I digress into a major rant on animal mistreatment and will post more on working with our companion animals and spirits soon! And for the cat lovers out there, pictures of my feline companions also!

This is Osiris the Bengal. He, his brother Caeser, and a female named Isis, were all rescued from a 'kitty' mill where they were kept in tiny cages.

Such a regal cat! Only a few generations from the wild!

Aren't his spots beautiful?

This is Spooky. The biggest most lovable baby cat you have ever seen! He literally thinks he is a child! Every one wants Spooky to be their cat but he is staying with me.

I have to say that in the last several days I have seen so much nastiness that I'm ashamed for us all! I have seen posts and websites calling a seller's children fat, showing diseased sexual organs, death threats and curses! Using words like 'c*nt' and 'wh*re', gay-bashing, etc... WOW! People of the Metaphysical community---GET A GRIP!

I am appalled at this behavior that is NOT part of those that practice any but the most Darkest and negative types of magicks or belief systems. Not just Dark but Black evil hateful negativity. Only holders of much internal hate, jealousy, pain and rage could come up with some of the ugliness that I have seen.
This world is rapidly spiraling towards the time when we are going to overcome these types of behaviors and grow as a species-into enlightenment-OR cease to exist as a species. Personally--I choose Enlightenment! What about you???

BUT I'm a big believer in synchronicity, so I'm hoping that all this 'trouble' influences many into choosing the best path towards advancement. Negativity and crisis, intense turmoil, can make us grow as individuals and as a group. So people of the Metaphysical, and those of you who aren't, think on choices and where they may lead, and take the path towards growth, individually and cosmically!


There has been much negativity and 'seller bashing' by certain other sellers in this wonderful category. That is so unfortunate as it gives non-believers and 'hecklers' more ammunition to say we are all full of 'baloney' AND it creates literal 'waves' of negative energy that affects us all, buyers and sellers alike.

I would never presume to call someone a fake! That is akin to Christians, or Muslims, or members of any one religion saying they are THE ONLY ONE TRUE BELIEF. That is closed minded prejudice, pure and simple. In the field of Magick, there are many beliefs and many fields of thought, many who practice magick, etc... in a multitude of ways-this is a big BIG world with many many beliefs AND mysteries.

NO ONE can know it all! Because I may not be knowledgeable about one practitioner's method of casting, or one type of spirit entity does not make them any less right or real. Lack of knowledge does not negate existence.

So I would ask that visitors to the metaphysical category, be they regular buyers/collectors or prospective customers, take this into account. If you see Metaphysical sellers that are 'bad mouthing' others in ANY way, think about how that negative energy is going to effect your experience with them. Think hard on this and follow your 'inner voices' when selecting which Metaphysical seller to purchase an Energetic, Magickal, or Spelled item from.---end of guide

There are many who believe whole-heartedly that 'orbs', those glowing luminous spheres some times captured on film are evidence of spiritual manifestation, and then there are those who believe strongly that they are just 'accidents' of light reflecting off/through dust, water, etc...

I'm not making a judgment either way but thought I would share some pictures I captured while photographing some furniture that I was selling in my 'other' life as an antiques dealer.

Now I take literally thousands of pictures of items-Kind of an anal perfectionist about it sometimes really. In this case I was outside my 1864 building-remember now-this one has been written about for years as 'haunted'. I had set up these furniture pieces to photograph for listing on eBay. It was later afternoon-about 3 o'clock-overcast but not raining. I had decided that since these pieces were extremely heavy and I was tired, that I would just photo them quickly and get on with things--no fancy settings, room groupings, rugs or vases staged etc... like I'm known to do for my furniture listings many times

After taking approx. 100 shots (OK, I know I said I was going to just get it done and not be anal-I really WAS trying) I uploaded and viewed the pics. To my surprise (actually at that moment-DISGUST!) in about half the photos there were anywhere from one to approx a dozen or more luminous 'orbs', some with 'tails' similiar to comets, captured in mid movement I suppose.

Now my FIRST reaction was SHIT!!!!! My photos are ruined and unusable!!!!!--ALL the best ones had these little 'defects'. I REALLY did NOT want to do the photos over! I was tired!!!! Then I stopped--and REALLY looked at the photos.

I know my camera lens was clean, it was not raining, no real dust in the air that I noticed, so ??? Where DID these glowing 'flaws' come from???

I don't think I've mentioned that my buildings are across the street from a fully functioning funeral home dating back to the early 1900's. I had mentioned in my first post that my building and neighbors house had been written about as far back as the 1970's. It seems that I'm surrounded by buildings long known as having spiritual manifestations--but getting ahead of myself here--those are for future posts. Of course I'm not even considering the multitude of energetic and spirited magickals that I have from my Grandmother here either!

I really just wanted to share a few of these pictures and let everyone make their own conclusions. So.......

The first photo shows the 'orb' appearing with a comet like tail as if moving--the next picture is the very next frame snapped a second or two later--no 'orb' here.

Below is a close-up cropped shot.

Large orb showing on dresser, out of 50+ photos taken in that batch and of my living room, this is the only orb seen.

I'll add some more photos a bit later showing more of these glowing spherical phenomena.

This has been an operating funeral home since the 1920's. Many people in my town have reported spirit activity and sightings over the years.


Our magick and beliefs are tiny flames in the darkness of the vast universe~blended as one they ignite into a sacred flame that will light the way out of darkness and into cosmic enlightenment.


In many cultures the skull is revered as the holder of the soul and thus is treated as a totem and object of worship and reverence.


Over the next few months I will be offering more of them out to new Seekers of the Light and though, sad to part with them, I rejoice in the thought that with each object or vessel I place, that we are one step closer to achieving the paradigm shift that will raise us to the next step of human evolution and conciousness!


Much spirit communication comes through in our dreams~we are more open to messages from the spiritual and astral planes when our mind is at rest~meditation can help us achieve this state in our 'waking' hours.

Gram's Visions and Synchronicity

The idea of 'synchronicity' is implicit in many of Gram's visions, your actions now will influence the outcomes of future events seeming totally unrelated. The theory of synchronicity is that seemingly unrelated events ARE interconnected, this is in direct contrast to causal relationships that are understood as simultaneous—that is, the cause and effect occur at the same time.

Synchronous events reveal an underlying pattern, a conceptual framework which encompasses, but is larger than, any of the systems which display the synchronicity. The suggestion of a larger underlying framework is essential in order to satisfy the definition of synchronicity as originally developed by Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung.

Jung coined the word to describe what he called "temporally coincident occurrences of acausal events." Jung variously described synchronicity as an "acausal connecting principle", "meaningful coincidence" and "acausal parallelism". Jung introduced the concept as early as the 1920s but only gave a full statement of it in 1951 in an Eranos lecture and in 1952, published a paper, Synchronicity — An Acausal Connecting Principle, in a volume with a related study by the physicist (and Nobel laureate) Wolfgang Pauli.

It was a principle that Jung felt gave conclusive evidence for his concepts of archetypes and the collective unconscious, in that it was descriptive of a governing dynamic that underlies the whole of human experience and history—social, emotional, psychological, and spiritual. Events that happen which appear at first to be coincidence but are later found to be causally related are termed as "incoincident".

Jung believed that many experiences that are coincidences due to chance, in terms of causality, suggested the manifestation of parallel events or circumstances in terms of meaning, reflecting this governing dynamic.

One of Jung's favorite quotes on synchronicity was from Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll, in which the White Queen says to Alice: "It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards".

What this means for you is that things you do, choices you make, no matter how unimportant they may seem in the grand scheme of things, really do matter a great deal. Sometimes more than that even! The choices influence which divergent 'path' our dimensional time line takes, some paths lead to great things but others are devastating in their out comes.
