Ever found yourself gazing at the clouds, feeling a hunch, or catching a vibe? Congratulations, my friend, you're tapping into your innate psychic gift! Now, let's debunk the myth that only a select few possess this ability. I firmly believe we're all born with it; it's just a matter of acknowledging and nurturing it.
The world of psychic phenomena often comes with labels, but don't let that intimidate you. Whether you call it a hunch, a vibe, or simply a gut feeling, these are all manifestations of your intuitive prowess. Tarot cards, often associated with psychic practices, are like a tool to focus your attention, much like staring at clouds to discern shapes and patterns.
Here's the real secret – you don't need a crystal ball or a mystical title to explore the depths of your intuition. It's about relaxing your analytical mind and tapping into your higher self, the authentic you that goes beyond your physical form. Consider your body as a vehicle, and you, my friend, are the driver.
So, let's address the elephant in the room – the belief that psychic abilities are reserved for a select few. It's time to toss that notion out the window. Your thoughts create your reality, and deep down, you already possess the answers within you. It's about removing any self-imposed limitations and allowing your intuitive nature to flourish.
Tarot cards serve as a tool to access your inner wisdom. Think of them as a mirror reflecting the knowledge that already resides within you. As you shuffle the deck and lay out the cards, you're creating a space to connect with your higher self and receive guidance.
Starting this journey involves acknowledging your inherent psychic potential. It's about recognizing that you are a vessel of cosmic energy, capable of tuning into the universal flow of information. By embracing the belief that you can access your intuitive gifts, you're already taking the first step toward unlocking your psychic abilities.
Now, let's explore the process of using tarot cards as a gateway to your intuitive self. The act of shuffling and drawing cards isn't about predicting the future in a crystal-clear image. Instead, it's about inviting your intuition to speak to you through the symbolism and imagery of the cards.
As you lay out the cards, let your mind relax, allowing your higher self to step forward. The cards act as a visual language, and your intuitive responses to them become the dialogue between you and your inner wisdom. Interpretations can be personal and unique, tapping into your individual connection with the energies at play.
Don't fret if you're unsure at first; building a connection with your intuition is a gradual process. It's like learning a new language or refining a skill – practice, patience, and trust are essential. Allow yourself to sit with the cards, observe the emotions and sensations they evoke, and let your intuitive insights unfold naturally.
Remember, the tarot is a tool, not a magic wand. Its purpose is to guide, not dictate. By incorporating tarot into your personal growth journey, you create a sacred space for self-reflection and intuitive exploration. It's about embracing the fluidity of interpretation and letting your inner guide speak louder than any preconceived notions.
As you venture into the world of psychic card reading, consider it a voyage of self-discovery. The cards become a mirror reflecting your inner landscape, highlighting aspects of your psyche and bringing forth insights that might have lingered in the shadows.
To enhance your experience, explore different decks and find one that resonates with you. Each deck carries its unique energy, and the one that captures your attention is likely to align with your personal vibration. Whether it's the traditional Rider-Waite deck or a more modern and artistic interpretation, let your intuition guide you in choosing the deck that speaks to your soul.
In this journey, trust is your steadfast companion. Trust in your ability to connect with your higher self, trust in the wisdom the cards convey, and trust in the unfolding of your intuitive gifts. Release the need for perfection and embrace the beauty of imperfection in your intuitive exploration. If you want to learn more about the cards in a fun, relaxed way, you can check out my course on learning tarot cards.
So, do you have to be a psychic to delve into the world of tarot cards? Absolutely not. What you need is an open heart, a curious mind, and the willingness to explore the depths of your own intuition. The tarot is a profound tool, offering a pathway to self-discovery and a means to amplify your connection with the universal energies that surround us.
So, let go of any reservations, step into the realm of your intuitive potential, and let the tarot be a guide on your journey of self-exploration. Your psychic abilities are not reserved for the select few; they are an inherent part of your being, waiting to be acknowledged and embraced. As you embark on this adventure, remember – you are the magician, the alchemist, and the sage of your own destiny. The answers you seek are already within you; it's time to trust in the magic that resides in the depths of your intuition.
Let’s talk about channeling.
For me, I realized I had begun channeling years ago when I was working with a friend. Understand that channeling is not that thing you see in the movies where someone gets possessed by an entity and starts climbing the walls. Believe me, I’ve tried.
It’s not like that at all.
For me, when a friend and I were discussing a problem that he or she had, I would pause, take a deep breath, release any tension, and then I would begin sharing what I was thinking about their issue.
I thought it was all me.
My energy was calm and caring, but the minute they interrupted me and started talking, I would suddenly come out of my trance. The weird part was, I couldn't repeat what I had just told my friend. It was like I forgot what I had said.
That was always awkward for me. I used to think,
“How can I forget something so fast?”
“What’s wrong with me?”
But now, after all this work, I realize that the information came through me for my friend. The message wasn’t meant for me, that’s why I couldn’t remember it.
I believe this is where the saying, “just get out of your own way” comes into play. Not that I had a choice. I don’t let my logical mind fight it. I set my ego aside and channel the information. Whether it’s your higher self coming through, or a spiritual guide, or angel, or whatever you want to label it; don't have it go through the logical limited mind and just open up the floodgates to let the good come through.
When we are open like this, we can download such amazing information.
But how do you know if it’s your logical mind or something else?
This is where discernment comes in. You may want to unlock this superpower so badly, but you have to be honest with yourself and know when your ego is talking.
One way that I can tell when my advice is coming from my limited mind, or my ego, is when the information gets filtered through all my old programs. Or, the information feels bumpy, forced, and slow. It kind of feels like it’s not coming from a clear place.
For example, if you have a friend that wants relationship advice but she goes to a friend that is constantly in bad relationships, then the advice she receives will be very different from someone that has been in a long-term, loving relationship. In fact, both friends, if they don’t step aside from their ego, can taint the information as they filter it through their own experiences.
As with everything I do on this site and my channel, it’s all about gaining awareness. Awareness of what you're already doing but may not understand it. With this awareness, you can start to own and use your own gifts. There is nothing to fear here, we’re just turning the lights on.
So what the heck is channeling?
The art of channeling has been used since ancient times. There are stories of shamans, witches, oracles, connecting to higher levels of energy. But really, anyone can channel, and I’m going to show you how.
Channeling is about opening yourself, your mind, and your heart up to higher levels of energy to let it convey through you.
Before you start channeling, let me share how I discovered what channeling truly is and some tips that helped me get better at it.
Watch the video instead of reading the blog if you like!
It’s not to be confused with mediumship. With mediumship, you’re acting as more of a translator and you often don’t let them take over your body. It’s more like you're an interpreter - whereas when you’re channeling, you’re allowing an energetic being to take over your body. It’s kind of like you move to the side and let them take center stage.
Remember, it’s your body so you are always in charge of who can come in and how long they can stay.
Some of these beings can be spirits, angels, archangels, even a guide. Now, discernment is important once again. So, if it doesn't feel good to you, you don’t have to let it in. Just like you wouldn’t let a creepy stranger into your house, you don’t have to let them in your body. The power is always within you.
Channeling. This is not a sex-ed class.
Slowly raise your frequency and meet with the vibrations of the spirit, angel, or whichever higher being that you sense. When that link is made, you may try channeling!
Easy, huh? 😉
Wait there’s more.
You might allow this being to speak through you or you may convey what you are witnessing. You might experience automatic writing or drawing. Maybe this being wants to play an instrument or dance. It really depends on what you're comfortable with.
The cool thing for me is that I get to experience something new. It’s like looking at life with a new pair of glasses on, helping to take you out of that automatic one way of being.
Next is Trance channeling, but I’ll save that for another blog and video for my mystical members. IF you want to dive deeper into this them become a member, you won’t regret it. I guarantee it!
So these are just some suggestions to get you started with channeling. It’s exactly how I did it.
Remember, to be patient with yourself and have fun. You want to keep your energy bright and light. You may actually learn that you’ve been channeling energies all along. Whether that’s while you're at work, or in difficult situations, coming up with ideas, maybe creativity just flows through you, like writing music. Again, there is nothing to fear. You're just waking up to what’s already happening, and giving you the awareness to say no to a lower frequency.
And remember, you are not your body, you are not your emotions, you are light!
Until next time,

Brainwaves. We hear about them a lot, but why are they so important? I
mean, besides proving to people that we're still alive.
They're important to us because our thoughts and intentions control the frequency our brains transmit. By changing our thoughts and focusing our intentions, we can adjust our brain waves and live happier lives.
First, it's important to know that brain waves basically prove the electrical activity generated by your brain. Yep, it's all electrical and chemical, but that's another blog. When a group of neurons in your brain sends a burst of electrical pulses to another set of neurons in your brain, this activity creates a wave-like pattern.
We measure these brain waves in speed cycles per second. We call these Hertz. Depending on how awake and alert you are, these brain waves might be very fast, or they might be very slow. And your brain waves change based on what you think, how you feel, and what activity you are performing.
For example, most people's brains are running in the frequency range of 14-30hz. This is basically thinking, overthinking, and generally figuring shit out.
This state of your brain is known as BETA.
Some people pride themselves for being very good at this frequency. They think they are being productive worrying about things and then figuring all their crap out. But, if you want to kick open the door to your superpowers, then you need to shift your frequency.
Well, what if I told you that your brain is just stuck at a particular frequency, and you can change the channel just like that? Remember, your body is helping to stay that way because it's addicted to the chemistry, so this isn't going to be easy. Being locked in a frequency is great when you're flying high, but it totally sucks when we hit rock bottom.
I don't know about you, but I can feel like a broken record sometimes. When I'm in a good space around great people, I can feel excited and courageous to do something new. But the minute I'm by myself again, alone with my own thoughts. I start dragging down my frequency, I can feel myself slipping backward.
Well, I'm not playing that loop anymore. That story has ended and it's time for me to wake up. I don't want to be on my deathbed saying,
“Ok, I'm ready to live now.”
"Oh, but it's too late, Ma'am.”
“But I had big plans, I just didn't want to upset anyone, or I was afraid, or I felt like I wasn't good enough, or what if no one likes me once I show them who I really am.”
Now, I'm all alone playing that old record that did not serve me in my lifetime. Too late.
So, let's let our emotions take the back seat for this episode and let science drive.
Why? Cause it's time for us sensitive types to take a more objective look at what's happening so we can help each other snap out of this trance.
Most of us are unaware that we are living in survival mode: feeling worried, fearful, angry, and distrustful most of the time. This is high beta, it's between 22-50 hertz. This state is great if you are being chased by a lion and you need to move fast, but when we humans remain in this state for long periods of time without any physical activity to burn off this energy, it'll become a source of stress, anxiety, pain, and suffering and over time it will create an imbalance in your body.
(I thought that was just being an Italian--kidding, then I would have
mentioned hungry and judgmental too.)
When we are in survival mode, in this high beta range, there is no space or time for change. Our brain is on high alert. And it is not good for us. Not good at all. This is where meditation, rituals, exercise, sound healing, and healthy eating come in so we can readjust the frequency of our brain and give our bodies a break.
So, what do you do?
Well first off, meditation is a perfect way to change the frequency of your brain. If you need a reason to meditate, this is the big one. I guarantee you this will change your brain frequency and move you out of High Beta.
Take a moment to watch my video here about how Brain waves can affect your mood, your emotions, and your life. Join me as I explain how they work and how you can affect them to make a difference in your life.
Here’s a link to some meditations to move you out of beta and into alpha. Go Here
Depending on what your goal is, you can reach for different brain waves like Delta, Theta, Alpha, and my favorite Gamma. I break all of these states down in my mini-course on brain waves.
But it’s important to remember that most of us are stuck in the stressful, anxiety-ridden state of High beta. You gotta get out of that. It’s your ticket to happiness and a better you. The frequency of your brain determines your productivity, your creativity, and your superpowers.
By understanding our brain waves we can look at ourselves more objectively and start to realize we can grow and change. Until next time I’m Marisa Grieco, your Mystical Guide.
You might have heard me talking about cords or tentacles in my other blogs. I’m not talking about power cords, or octopus, octupses? Octopies? Who knows how to spell them. No, I’m referring to the way we tap into each other, energetically. This is very natural, and we do it all the time. In fact, this is how some of us get our information about each other.
As a mom, I can easily tap into my daughters and experience how they are feeling. Some of us don’t even realize we’re doing it. But the problems begin when you forget to take your cords out of someone and return to your own center. Or, you don’t realize that you have even been corded!
This is where shit goes wrong.
In this blog, we’re going to learn how to identify these leftover cords and how to release them before they start hurting and depleting your own energetic field.
Have you ever had the experience where you are just chillin’ and suddenly you get this surge of energy or a surge of pain out of nowhere? This is often followed by a strong emotion. Well, you’re not crazy, and once you identify it’s not a heart attack, it may be that someone just plugged into your energy field or they just activated the cord that was already tethered to you. I see this all the time with my clients who are stuck in controlling relationships either with a loved one or a family member.
Now before you get your panties in a knot, I want you to know that these cords are simply invisible strands of energy that connect you to other people, places, and things. These cords are not part of your own conscious mind but exist at the subconscious and unconscious levels.
You can’t see them with your physical eyes, obviously, but they affect your life just the same. So, if you’re very sympathetic towards people, you’re likely cording them all the time. The problem is that when you do this, you may feel responsible for their needs. You are drawn into their concerns, and your energy will start to match theirs. This can really make you feel confused and even spun out because you’re picking up someone else’s life lessons, messages, and emotions.
And they won’t make any sense to you because they’re not yours!
You have no context for them, but they feel real just the same. That’s why you want to gently remove them once you get the information you were looking for. Don’t just walk away when you’re still plugged in!
Now some cords are positive and feel good. It’s the way we connect with our loved ones.
If you are in a romantic relationship with someone you may find that you are connected to the heart and sacral chakras.
You know, love and sex.
A parent may cord their children in their root chakra to help them survive. Even your pets can cord you. Letting you know when they’re hungry, or it’s time for you to come home and let them out.
Mine does it at two in the morning. I might buy a box of Depends for the damn dog.
But it’s when these cords become sticky, tangled, and filled with negative intent, that they can start to hurt you. They make you feel depleted, confused, even controlled. But understand, no one can put a cord into your field without your consent.
This is the hard part to understand.
At some level, you are willing to give them permission. If it feels negative and heavy, and you let it happen, it’s probably tied to an old program or belief that you are holding on to. For example, if you’re letting your partner control you, then you may be fulfilling an old belief that loved ones are allowed to do this. Maybe this was an agreement you made with one of your parents or you saw them make this agreement with each other. Jump to your current self and you may find out that you accepted this cord from your partner because of this old belief system.
The farther you travel on your healing journey, the more you’ll realize that you no longer want some of these cords in your field, especially if they are making you feel sick, heavy, and tired.
We can’t just cut these cords because, in the energetic realm, you’ll start to look like a wounded octopus with all these tentacles flailing about your field leaking your vital energy. Instead, we want to gently retract the cords keeping your energy intact.
So how do we do this? I like to use visualization when I’m meditating to clear these cords out of my energy. Visualizations are very powerful in self-healing. I set my intention to "de-cord" myself from others whenever I feel drained and depleted.
I want to call back all my energy clean and clear.
Watch my video about removing energetic cords. Learn how to identify, locate and remove these cords and live a happier life.
When I do this, sometimes a person’s face pops up into my mind’s eye. I take this as a sign that this person has a cord in me. If it feels good, I leave it in. If not, I remove it. If no one pops up, I often find a cord by scanning my body along my chakras using my hand.
People say that the first five chakras are the ones that get corded the most. That makes sense because they’re connected to your survival, sexual energy, power, love, and self-expression.
If you find that you have problems with your personal boundaries, that may mean that your eighth chakra has been corded by someone.
Anyway, back to the de-cording.
While I’m slowly running my hands along my chakras, I’m looking for any sensation of temperature differences. If I feel this, it tells me I have some work to do - at that point. It might not be a temperature change. It can also feel like a denseness or even a tingle in your hand. This tells me I found a cord.
Now the cord can feel thick and coarse or thin and wispy, it doesn’t matter-- but like roots from a tree, some can be deep and tricky to remove.
Now, remember you’re not cutting it or yanking it out. Instead, energetically begin to visualize twisting the cord at the level of your skin, almost playing with, twirling it, moving it from side to side, giving it room to slip out, tugging ever so gently when you feel it start to give.
Once it slides out, I visualize tying a knot at the end of the cord and sending it back to its owner. Then I place my hand over the spot where the cord once was and I visualize gold light soothing and healing the wound.
Sometimes it can be tougher than that to remove a cord. If you’re having trouble I have more tips and exercises in my membership that can help you, so feel free to head over there.
Now depending on which chakra has been corded, it can tell you a lot about your relationship with this person. If someone is not being authentically loving in a relationship, you may find that the energetic cord goes into the heart chakra down along the spine and is grounded in your solar plexus.
Your power center.
This is someone that manipulates love and power, and I see this a lot with my clients. The partner strengthens the cord by saying things like, “if you do this or act this way I will love you”. You may even feel your stomach tighten when they are around you.
I’ve seen cords enter one place and go all the way to your sacral chakra cutting off your creativity or blocking your sexual energy.
Once again, these are just a few examples and tips to open up your awareness of the energetic cords. If you would like to know more check out my guided meditations to help you, and maybe some worksheets too. I hope some of this makes you realize you are so much more than your physical body and that all those feelings and messages that you’re picking up, may not even be yours.

Is your living space a friggin’ mess? Can you sense the pile of laundry, even though you’re downstairs? Wait! I’m not going to tell you to go upstairs and tackle all those chores right now. That's what maids are for. I mean, that’s whatkids are for. But I will start by saying maintaining a clean, fresh, living space will help your Clairsentience to flourish. Join me in this blog post as we’re going to learn what it means to be clairsentient and how to activate it.
Clairsentient. What does it mean? Well it actually means: “Clear Feeling”. And it’s not some wooji wooji thing about a spooky paranormal power, in fact it's a natural and divine ability that lives within all of us.
You already use your five senses- smell, taste, hearing, touch, and sight. They help you process your physical world but your 6th sense helps you understand how energy plays in this realm. And we know everything is energy, so it makes sense that we have the ability to feel this. We hear people talking about gut feelings or sensing something is not right…this is clairsentience.
In my modeling days, I was always traveling to a new country with new customs, most of which I didn’t know. And I would rely on my clairsentience to keep me safe. I can remember times where I was so exhausted and lost (this was way before smart phones and google), I had to rely on folded foreign maps, and foreign bus schedules. It wasn’t always taxis and limousines. But I was very grateful when it was.
I remember one time in Germany. I was walking to my last modeling audition and I was tired. It was cloudy, wet, and not many people were out on the streets. All of a sudden I got a creepy feeling in my gut. I looked around and saw a car driving slowly next to me. I thought, “fuck!! this guy is following me”. Instead of waiting around to see if I was right, I changed directions immediately. I ran in the opposite way. His car picked up speed, but couldn't turn around fast enough on the tiny road. That’s when I turned around again and headed to my appointment. I was grateful then to trust this Clair -- this ability or superpower as I like to call it. Internally I thanked myself, and my guides for protecting me. So much of the time, we hear ourselves say, “I knew that was going to happen”. But I didn't listen. That's gonna change now! We are going to start to learn to trust and listen to this gut feeling.
As children we loved bathing ourselves in energy as we played, but our modern adult world forces us to report our human experience using only our five senses. We are taught to shut these feelings down. And when these powers completely escape some individuals, they are usually the first people to make fun of any mention of using these innate, dormant abilities.
To me, it’s not normal to live this way, to shut ourselves off from our natural abilities and cut ourselves off from the knowledge of the universe. It’s kinda dumb, if you ask me.
Now, in some of my YouTube videos we discussed the sacral chakra and your second energetic light layer in your auric field. The cool thing is that they are key to unlocking clairsentience. This clair is connected to these energetic realms. That’s why you feel the information in your lower gut, and it comes up as feelings. You’ve heard it all before, “I’ve got a bad feeling about this”, or “that guy has a really cool vibe”. That’s because your sacral chakra is picking up information from the energy around you. It does it all the time, you simply picked that moment to become aware of it.
Now the same is true when you just want to chill and close down this energy center. I either visualize it closing like a flower, or I will put my hand in front of my energy center and close my hand making a fist and shut them down.
Visualization is an amazing tool.
This way, you are always in control. So, if you find yourself in a crowded space, and you're starting to feel overwhelmed, lower the volume in this energy center in order to find some comfort. It’s that simple.
Another way you can recognize the power of being clairsentient is goosebumps. Or truth bumps, as I like to call it. No Laughing!
This always happens when someone tells me a story and by the end, my arms look like a chicken that has been plucked. The energy is so present that my body lets me know that everything is in alignment. Have you ever experienced that?
What’s interesting about Clairsentience, and something that actually surprised me at first, was that this Clair can connect you to your deceased loved ones. I wonder if that’s why I sometimes get goosebumps, or chills, when I enter a room. Even when it's not cold! To me, it’s just an entity or energy on the other side just saying, “hello, I’m here!”
To identify this clair within you, start by focusing on the emotions that spring up when you encounter someone new. Or when you walk into a new space. Pay attention to what your gut is telling you. Understand that it’s actually your innate ability to read the energy around you. If you’ve been working on your sacral chakra, you may find this information coming to you more freely or even stronger.
Also, I always feel sick or nauseated after I’ve been around negative people, or if I’ve been hanging out in a crappy environment with low frequency. If this is you, know that you're not crazy. It's your Clair! It’s talking to you, warning you, telling you to run!!! This is how your body processes this energy in order to communicate with you.
Take a moment to watch my video here about Reconnecting to your Core Store. I share tips as well as my experiences in a short video. (Just in case your get tired of reading 🙂
Nowadays, I can often just scan my body to see where I’m picking up information. It usually starts in my gut. Next, I may ask myself what's going on? What are you trying to tell me? Then I will take a look around and see what triggered it. It may be a person, or the room, even an object. I register the message, but the important thing is to release the energy right afterwards. Especially if there is any pain or low emotions attached to it, that's the new piece to this puzzle. Don’t hold the emotions in your body. Not even for a minute.
Understand, we can pick up these negative energies even when we read or watch the news. We pick up the emotions and then carry them. Let that shit go. If you find it difficult to let go, then you can see that your body is addicted to this frequency and is constantly looking to be fed. That’s why you keep attracting the same stories, the same people and the same places…
Ok back on track...
What do you do if your Clairsentience ability is on overdrive and you just need a break?
I’ll experience this if I’m around a person going through a really hard time, or if I’m going to a crowded party and I don’t want to pick up on everyone's emotional crap. Remember: You're always in control of your own energy centers.
Here’s a Tip:
Sit comfortably on a chair with your feet firmly on the ground.
Focus on your breath, slowing your energy down.
Place your hand in front of your sacral chakra, which is just below your belly button.
With your palm facing towards your body, simply close your hand. Giving yourself a visual of your chakra closing down. You can imagine an opened flower in front of your sacral energy center and then command the flower to close down. You are simply choosing to shut down this information temporarily. When you're ready you can re-open it.
So remember, those gut feelings, those goosebumps you’ve been experiencing, that’s your physical body processing your ability to read the energy of things you encounter. Don’t ignore it. Learn to trust this clair. You might need her one day.

Are you tired of everyone telling you who you should be? What you should think? What you should eat? Even what you should wear? Well, that’s probably because you’re still living at home. Just kidding!
But if any of these statements resonate with you, you're probably disconnected from your Core Star, or better known as your inner light.
In the blog, we’ll learn about the Core Star and its connection to your entire energy consciousness system (hint, it’s actually the foundation of your whole energy system). I’ll also share some tips and rituals that I did to reconnect with this amazing light.
I started blocking off my connection to the Core Star as a child. If you’ve watched all my videos, you’re probably thinking, “boy she had a rough childhood”. Not really, but I do want to show you how easy it is to create a program when we're kids. Cause we all do it!
Now it’s time to clean up our mess...
I had an accident when I was very young that caused me to lose my hearing in my right ear. My hearing loss didn’t really affect me until I started school.
My teacher would be addressing the classroom and I would miss gaps of what she was saying. Not knowing any better, I would just try to read her lips; but soon it caught up with me. My teacher would ask a simple question, but because I didn’t hear her fully, I would answer with something entirely off-topic. Every time I did this, the class would start laughing at me. That is when I began to shut down.
I didn't want to be called on. I didn't want to be there. I didn’t want to be seen, so I flew away from my body. I fell down a black hole by creating a belief program that it was not safe to share my voice. I felt stupid, not good enough, and even unlovable.
Physically, my muscles would tense up and I would have to hold back tears. This was the beginning of repressing my emotions into my unconscious. I built those walls up, and created a new belief system.
This made it much harder to reach my Core Star. My inner light was now walled off and I didn’t even realize it. Great way to start my teen years, huh?
The more I tried to protect this part of myself, the more disconnected and alone I felt. This is what I believe was the beginning of my depression.
It wasn’t until I started taking down these walls very slowly and carefully that I started to feel like myself again.
That's what I want to share with you.
Let's start right at the beginning-- The Core Star is the source of our unique essence, our divine spark, our soul, if you will. It’s like a snowflake! Each one is different and magical in its own way, just like you.
According to Barbara Brennan, the Core Star is the foundation for the Structure of the Human Energy Consciousness system. That’s a mouthful but how cool is that!
To give you an idea of how all of this works, your consciousness system has four aspects: it consists of the Core Star, the Hara foundation, your energy field (aura), and last but not least, the physical body.
Each one of these has its own space and dimension and they all function completely differently, but still complement each other. It’s like we’re a human cake. With all our layers, flavors, and colors. Separate, but still blended nicely together.
For now, we're going to focus on the Core Star.
It's in this space of the Core Star that your creative and intuitive energy originates. When this energy is flowing, you feel healthy, happy, and connected to everything and everyone. You are light!
The Core Star is a wonderful space to seed your manifestations as well. You may find yourself inspired to jump in and start doing all the creative things that you’ve always wanted to but never seem to make the time for. You may find yourself painting (watch out Picasso!), drawing, or writing a book.
Take a moment to watch my video here about Reconnecting to your Core Store. I share tips as well as my experiences in a short video. (Just in case your get tired of reading 🙂
Ideas feel like they are just flowing through you. When your Core Star is glowing bright, you’ll finally begin to feel comfortable in your human suit, your Avatar!
Finally, you will be free to express yourself, because you’re no longer looking outside for validation. You're free from judgments, free from other people's opinions, free from feeling like you have to be perfect. It’s in this inner space, that you are the center of the universe.
The wonderful thing about your Core Star is that it cannot be diminished by negative experiences. You may have created walls and blocks around your Core Star to make you feel safe and avoid any painful memories, but underneath all that, it is still a vibrant star-- untouched by the third-dimensional world.
When we block our Core Star, we can start to feel depressed, unworthy, and even uncreative. Your energy becomes sluggish or heavy. This is why you can start to feel sick. Nothing is moving. It’s like a pond that lost its flow of water. It’s stagnant.
Or if you find that you're overeating, taking drugs, and drinking alcohol excessively, (although this just sounds like this past year during the pandemic...kidding) these are just ways to cope with the pain. We’re not feeling safe enough to be ourselves.
Take a walk outside in nature (or your own backyard is fine too). Find a space where you feel safe and won’t be disturbed. Put away your electronics and just look around. Activate your five senses -smell, taste, touch, sight, sound.
Pick up a flower and study the structure of it. What do you see? Let your eyes answer.
What can you smell? Allow your nose to explore.
What can you hear? Birds, water, traffic?
What can you taste?
What can you sense? Can you feel the vibration of the trees, plants, grass?
Just notice what comes up for you. Explore everything. Allow yourself to be affected emotionally.
Playing with animals is another wonderful tool to get your Core Star shining.
Whether it’s hanging out with your pets or going to a farm, a rescue facility. Whatever you have access to.
Sometimes it can feel easier to express your feelings and love with an animal. Allow this warmth to grow and expand in your energy field.
Listen to your favorite music, and let loose! Dance, sing, have fun. I can close my eyes and automatically be transported to a dance floor in my favorite club.
Whether you're writing, drawing, painting, whatever. Pick your medium.
Do something creative to get you out of your head. Just allow it to flow.
To help me, sometimes I just turn on my favorite music, get out my paints and do abstract work. If I felt angry I would express it in my paintings. This was a lot of fun!! A big mess at times, but still fun. If my inner critic came out, I would just let that part of me paint! There is no perfection, it's just your expression. Hey, that kinda rhymes!
Another key tool is to get involved or do something for someone else.
Get the focus off yourself. It can be something spontaneous and kind. Try excluding the word “I” as much as you can.
You can call a friend, neighbor, or organization that needs your help. Try to objectively do this. It can be a wonderful way to jump-start your Core Star. (Remember you don’t have to sign up for something that is going to deplete you, instead try something that brings a smile to your face).
This one is inspired by Eric Morris.
If you're feeling super trapped and overwhelmed, this exercise may help you. You are going to need to clear a big space for yourself in a room. Remove any jewelry, glasses, watches and any object that can hurt you. If you can lay down on a soft surface like a carpet I would recommend that.
With this exercise it kind of looks like a kid having a tantrum in a toy aisle when he is told you won’t buy him his favorite action figure.
You want to hurl yourself into a ball and then have a physical fit- kicking, and flailing your body in every direction, if you can, scream and howl let loose.
If you're worried about neighbors or someone hearing you, scream into a pillow.
The exercise should go on until you experience a large emotional explosion. We're getting rid of tension and all that crap that no longer serves you.
Be kind to yourself afterwards. It’s all part of the process. We’re peeling away the layers.
When your Core Star essence is free to flow you may start to sense that everything around you becomes in sync. Your feelings are positive and your intentions feel good. You will also release issues that you have avoided facing, sometimes for your whole life. They will come to the foreground of your life to be experienced and healed. You’re clearing away the old programs and rebooting your authentic self!
Now that you're starting to feel more connected to your Core Star, you will begin to create the things you have always wanted.
You're no longer looking outwards to learn about yourself but instead, you are going inwards.
You are a shiny bright star!!! Remember, you are not your body, your emotions or your programs. You are light!!!

Have you ever caught movement out of the corner of your eye and it was so vivid that you swear you saw something? But when you looked, nothing was there? Can you see colors around a person? Are you a serious daydreamer? Well it’s not ADD, you might just be Clairvoyant! In this post, I'm going to give you some tips on how to strengthen that superpower of yours.
If you haven’t seen my introduction to the clairs video, go watch it here. You'll find that there is more than one Clair, but in this article, I want to concentrate on clairvoyance. When I first learned about this Clair, I thought, darn it, “I don’t have this superpower at all.” I used to think that clairvoyant only meant I was supposed to "see" things in the physical world -- you know like those fantasy movies where a ghost shows up and starts spewing cool messages to reluctant recipients. The truth is that only a few people can see energy and spirits that way, the majority of us don’t.
Once I understood this, and more importantly, trusted it, I realized just how much I was actually seeing! It was so much easier now to get the messages I was seeking. With some practice, my psychic superpower took off - like a witch on her broom. (Just kidding we drive sports cars now.)
So what did I do to build this connection? Here are 4 techniques I use to strengthen this psychic superpower of clairvoyance.
Take a moment to watch my video here about 4 Tips to Develop your Clairvoyant Superpower. I share tips as well as my experiences in a short video. (Just in case your get tired of reading 🙂
Number 1 - The Memory Game.
As a mom, I don’t get much alone time. My kids love to play games (as does my husband), so I incorporated my practice with their card games. Remember that memory card game we played as a kid? The game where you place all of the cards face down, then flip over one at a time, trying to make matches?
This sort of card game is an excellent game to play when you want to become more clairvoyant. As you are playing, try “seeing” each card in your mind’s eye. Take a moment, breath, concentrate, practice. Don’t be hard on yourself, you may suck in the beginning. Be kind. Rome wasn’t built in a day.
Number 2 - Playing with Light.
For this one you get to lay down (you’re welcome). Once you are comfortable, place a clear quartz crystal over your third eye chakra. Breathing deeply, imagine a crystal ball at the centre of your head. Place a candle in the centre of this ball and then light it. (Remember you’re imagining this. You’re not actually lighting a candle on your head.) Imagine this ball getting brighter and brighter with each breath. Now create a light tube traveling through your 3rd eye, front to back. Visualize another tube of white light running out the top of your head while the other end of the light tube is going through your entire body and out your root chakra. It's like you have an internal white cross pulsing through your body. Now, imagine your third eye opening up and seeing clearly. If you visualize this regularly, you’re putting energy behind your intention to open up your third eye and strengthen your superpower. And besides, you get to lay down for a second. (I keep the door locked so the kids can’t interrupt me.)
Number 3 - Balloons.
This one may seem strange at first, but the purpose is to improve your ability to clearly visualize what you want without your mind or your ego taking over all the time. In this exercise, visualize yourself holding seven balloons, each one a different color of the rainbow. Start with the red balloon and let it go. Watch it float up to the sky until the red balloon disappears, and then release the next one. Do this until all the balloons are gone. It’s not as easy as it sounds, is it? Good visualization takes practice.
Number 4 - Auras.
Practice this one on yourself. Sit in a dimly lit room and take a couple of deep breaths. Set your intention to see your own aura. It's important that you actually believe that this is something you can do. Take your index fingers and push them together. Rub them around together. Aura is “sticky” so focus on the area between fingers as you continue to gently rub them. After a bit, pull your fingers apart, just a little. Focus intently on the space between your fingers and look for a colored a colored mist, or smoke, between your fingertips. It may not happen right away. Keep practicing and make sure to set your intentions. (Watch a video of me doing this here.)
So those are four exercises I use to strengthen my clairvoyant superpower. During your journey, it’s important to release any fears you may have with this psychic superpower. If there is a frightening image from your youth, you might have turned off your clairvoyant abilities to avoid this unpleasantry. You’ll have to nurture your inner child in order to reclaim your powers. And remember, your psychic superpower is always within you. If you see, or feel something that you don’t like when exploring this realm, then tell it to leave! It has to listen to you. Think of it as a cosmic law. If I see something I don’t like, I command it to leave.
So practice, practice, practice at visualization. This is key to the superpower of clairvoyance. The more often you try, the easier it becomes, but be benevolent with yourself in the early stages. Don’t be critical of your progress. AND trust. For one week, lose the negative talk, lose the doubt, and truly embrace your power. Ask your guides to help. Ask them for signs - everywhere, and then trust the messages you are receiving.
