Change & Moving Forward - Psychic Consultants Online Blog

Release what no longer serves you – let it go! This may pertain to possessions, relationships, material goods, careers, etc. Whatever it may be, free yourself from your own emotional baggage. Baggage comes in many shapes and forms. The only way to move forward is to eliminate what is weighing you down. I can assure you that it will feel so liberating to release the past. Gain peace and freedom from this clearing. Release any judgment or self-criticism during this transitional phase.

This is a positive step towards self-acceptance and forgiveness. Discover the things and activities that provide you with lasting joy and fulfillment. Be grateful and accepting of this process. It is helping you evolve into your best self. This will likely be a difficult transition so it is critical that we are open and ready to receive it. Release any expectations of how things should be. Remove any lingering fears and regrets.

Rather, reflect on the positive aspects of this process. You are gaining strength, wisdom and courage along the way. Enjoy it for what it is. Never underestimate your worth – you are more powerful than you know. Take time to meditate and reflect during and after this transitional stage. What are your intentions – what do you hope to achieve from this? Eliminate any fears or self-doubt. Evaluate where you are in life by making any necessary changes along the way. It is time to finally reconnect with what makes you happy.

Where can improvements be made? Learn from your past mistakes and decisions. Use this as a stepping stone towards a more productive and peaceful future. Embrace the unknown with open arms, self-love and acceptance. This is your opportunity to begin again – a fresh start, a new beginning so, make sure to appreciate it. It may take time to become so accepting so it is essential that you take stock of what is holding you back in life. Welcome and allow these changes to be part of your life.

Moving forward doesn’t need to be an ominous struggle. While it may seem impossible at the time, know that it is a step in the right direction. This opportunity is a gift, not an obligation. Only you can make the decision to release and let go of what no longer serves you. Remember that your past has gotten you where you are today. You have struggled, grown and learned a great deal about yourself throughout the years.

I came across an excellent article, Living Fully, where the authors address change by stating, “Most of us just let life happen to us. Check in with yourself. Change takes courage.” This resonated with me as I’m sure most can also attest to this. How many times do we find ourselves just going with the flow? Maybe we continue our habits and lifestyles because it’s all we have ever known. It’s easy to continue doing the same old thing. It’s comfortable but it may not be what brings us the most gratification.

This is your chance to make things better. Realize your potential and know that your strength and determination will allow you to break down any barriers or obstacles. Be mindful of your goals and progress; maybe even reward yourself for your developments. You will continue to make mistakes and learn but at least you have lived! Focus on what makes you joyful and passionate. This will allow you to be at peace in all areas of your life. Take the first step today by going out of your comfort zone!

The Power of Encouragement - Psychic Consultants Online Blog


The Power of Encouragement - Be an Encourager!

This week was quite difficult for me as I encountered plenty of judgment and criticism. This same negativity inspired me to write and discuss the power of encouragement. I have found that it is important to live your life for you and only you! We shouldn’t make decisions based on the fear of what others will say or think. If we continue to live in fear and focus on negativity, this will transcend into a pretty dismal life.

There is an abundance of success to go around and reach all of us. So, why as a society do we continue to tear each other down? We must embrace each other’s successes and weaknesses. Rather than competing and attempting to edge out our competitors, we should be uplifting and supportive of one other. Nobody can judge you other than yourself!

Before placing judgment on another individual, you should take a thorough look at yourself in the mirror to make sure that you are perfect. Instead of degrading one another, we should focus on building each other up during our triumphs and failures. The world already has enough haters! Let’s make a conscious effort to change this by being a supporter no matter what the circumstances are.

Unless you’re perfect, which I can assure you – Nobody is, it is essential that you remove judgment of anyone and anything that is happening around you. Imagine how different the world would look if everyone was able to gain this perspective or outlook on life. With this new perception, imagine the positive effects it could have on your life. You will likely discover that being less critical of others will bring positivity into your life.

It is part of our individual journey to make mistakes when striving for happiness and success. In many situations, failure will happen before success can be attained. We often learn valuable lessons from these disappointments. This is why it is critical that others in our immediate environment allow us to make these mistakes by offering us warmth and support during these hardships.

Living a meaningful life requires that we learn something new each and every day. Don’t be afraid to take chances and make these mistakes as they are all part of your lessons in life. Give yourself the freedom to make mistakes without worrying about anyone else’s criticisms and thoughts. We will not evolve into the best version of ourselves if we are unable to live our lives fully and completely.

Be a role model – inspire others around you to be encouragers. After all, it doesn’t cost you any time or money to be an encourager to those around you. Why not give it a try? Find out how significant positive encouragement really is. Simply, replace your negative thoughts and opinions with optimistic attitudes. I can promise you that it will provide you with lasting gratification. Always strive to be a better person during challenges and stressful times. We gain nothing from being judgmental and opinionated of others and their decisions.

All the best,

Knowing Ways - The Power of Making a Decision: Psychic Consultants Online Blog

Knowing Ways - The Power of Making a Decision
By Diana Blagdon

Several years ago I was working with a 60 year old coaching client who had been unemployed for over a year.  She was certain that her professional life was over.  She was debating which under employed opportunity would be her best option. She was emotionally overwhelmed and angry.

When she asked me to psychically look at the two possible job opportunities what I saw was the following scene from the Indiana Jones movie The Quest for the Holy Grail.

Indy finds himself at the precipice of a bottomless chasm. He can see that on the other side of the abyss stands the sacred temple in which the cup of Christ awaits him. Indy has searched the entire world for the Holy Grail, defied all kinds of rats, skeletons and villains, nearly lost his father, and risked death many times to come to this point.

He senses he is so close and yet so far.  As he looks down into the endless gorge, he recalls the foretelling of instructions specifically for this part of his journey.

Have Faith

Indy takes a deep breath and steps out over the chasm. He sees nothing to stand on, but he decides to follow the advice to Trust.  As soon as he leans out over the abyss, a bridge appears and he finds himself fully supported.

What was before his eyes as reality was transformed by faith?

 The bridge could only be accessed by fully stepping into the present.

Faith becomes a vision of things unseen that can sometimes only be accessed through trust. 

The message to my client was “Only those who are able to believe in the invisible can do the impossible”

The minute I said this the path to the right opened up in my mind’s eye and the Happy Day Café became her best choice.

How many times have you stood at a turning point in your life trying to decide which path to take?   Later you discover that either path would have gotten you to your destination – one choice just represented a more direct route than the other.  Occasionally you might even end up on a dead end road and have to turn around and start over. The key on those occasions is to notice the path and enjoy the journey. 

I saw that my client was at a turning point in her life when she thought she was at the end of a dead end road.

She was struggling to make a choice between what she believed were two pointless jobs. I “saw” that she was at a decision point and the path to the right provided a bridge to her future while the left hand path was dark, uphill and longer.  

I taught her this simple focus technique that she could utilize in times of turmoil to access her inner wisdom and assist her in taking a step of faith.

Take a couple of deep centering breaths; gently allow your eyes to close. In your mind’s eye by seeing, sensing or feeling create a vision of the scales of justice.  The left side of the scale represents NO the right side a YES.

In order to use this exercise you need to formulate your questions so a yes or no either or response is appropriate.  Ask the question, record the answer and pay attention to the results.  Know that the more you use and trust this process the more dependable it will be for you.

My client had 2 “menial” (her description not mine) job opportunities.  I saw the Happy Day Café as her best option and empowered her with a new skill to help her make choices in the future.  

Within 6 months of taking the job at the café she met the owner of a start up business that was looking for someone to come in and manage his operation.   She was delightfully on her way again in a business opportunity that has provided her with a creative, meaningful life experience.  She also found a new process to use in times of doubt.

By seeking out assistance in her time of turmoil she came away empowered with a new way of KNOWING.
