Interested in alternative medicine? Then here’s something for you.

My friend at Akasha’s Journey will be offering two great classes on March 15th

There’s Tuning Fork Therapy Level 1 certification from 9-5

and Natural Healing with Essential Oils for People and Pets from 7-8:30

I’ve been part of an intro class on her work with tuning forks and found it very intriguing. The teacher works with rescue dogs, so I’m thinking the essential oils class will rock too.

Please check out the details in the links above, and if it seems like your thing, sign up asap to make sure you have your space reserved

You can make this world a healthier place.






For more information on Catherine’s books, “Adventures in Palmistry”, “The Practical Empath – Surviving and Thriving as a Psychic Empath”, “Manifesting Something Better” ,“The Psychic Power of Your Dreams”, her urban fantasy “The Lands That Lie Between”,   and her new book “Magick for Pennies”, all from Foresight Publications, click here

In these pages, I like to tell you about places that Foresight is going to be, where you can come and see us, get a reading, some Reiki or a book, or just say hi and visit awhile; but sometimes, I like to tell you about places that we’re not going to be- but are fabulous nonetheless.

and this is one of these times…

On the evening of Oct 14th, Foresight will be at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire in the fine medieval land of Hebron, Ct; but if you’re not there, you might want to set a course for The Steampunk Anachronism meets the Goblin Market in New York City.

Starting at 4 pm, this fine event blends elements of steampunk, a renaissance faire, dark enchantment and the unusual, with a twist, and features unique entertainment and experiences not often to be had.

I’ve been lucky enough to attend a number of Jeff Mach events, and I can tell you from personal experience that 1) his events are crammed to the top with good things, 2) there’s something for everyone, 3) any expectations you have  will surpassed, 4) you will definitely get your money’s worth, and 5) you will never meet such a bunch of interesting and friendly people.

Jeff not only runs great events. He has a knack for building a friendly community and culture, and for building events that welcome in people of all different varieties (especially people who don’t always fit in in mainstream culture). So, whether you’re goth or rennie, geek or gay, trans or pagan or whatever else you may be, there’s a friendly place for you at this event and at others of the Mach persuasion.

Great performers. Curious entertainments. And old friends you haven’t met yet. What could be finer?

If this sounds like your wonderful place to be, check here for more information. Tickets are available in advance at at the door, but looking at the program, I’d say it’d be wise to snaffle yours in advance lest they all sell before you get there

Set a course for adventure, and follow it into enchantment…

Deck them halls and hang that holly. We’ve looked at some gift ideas so far from the worlds of alternative health and personal growth. How about some presents from the world of metaphysics?

Before you start, the first step is to find out what area of metaphysics interests your recipient. Metaphysics covers a wide range of interests, from magick to New Age to certain spiritual paths, such as Wicca; and a great gift for one area is not so great for another.

Showing an interest in what path your recipient is on is respectful, and giving a great gift because you’ve done your homework rocks.

Good vibrations –

A physical space can gather dust, and it can also retain the vibrations of the things that have happened there – and those aren’t always good vibrations. These vibrations can affect the energy of the space and how folks feel there.

If your loved one feels the energy of his or her space needs help, a gift of things that can clear negative energy or help improve the energy in a space is useful. Sage for smudging. Singing bowls and other instruments for smudging with sound. Crystals such as rose quartz to create a more positive supportive energy field.

The symbol is the thing –

In manifestation work, having a concrete symbol of the thing you’re trying to manifest can be helpful to focus on. A model of a wished for car, a picture of that dream house, or a mocked up magazine cover with your friend as the new number one actor in America can be a start in manifesting that dream.

The tools of the trade –

Every activity has its own equipment, and metaphysics is no exception. Whether the person you’re shopping for uses herbs, candles, or obscure New Age gadgets, a gift of  the right tools or supplies supports that individual’s path or practices and makes the season bright.

The gift of knowledge –

 Whether you’re exploring and expanding the boundaries of energy, reality, magick or spirit, the knowledge of those who came before you can make your own journey better and more effective.

Books, recordings and classes in the metaphysical area of your recipient’s interest are always a good choice (and if you’re not sure exactly what to get, a gift card that puts a friend or loved one in a position to choose exactly what they most need next is an excellent gift.)

There’s four different areas to do your holiday shopping in a metaphysical area. But we’re not done yet…

 Mainstream medicine does a great job of helping us return to health when we’re sick or injured. Alternative health does a great job of helping us keep from going there in the first place.

But it’s not always fun or easy to live a healthy life style. So, one great gift can be something that makes it easy and fun.

You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink. Likewise, you cannot make someone do things that you think would be healthy for them. Different people have different needs and interests, and what you think is great might be just what that person doesn’t need

But, sometimes people are ready and interested, and all that they need is a little help to get started. And at that point, that little help truly is a gift


 55-60% of the human body is made up of water, and both mainstream and alternative medicine agree that one of the most healthy things we can do for ourselves is to drink enough clean water everyday, (Something a lot of us have problems doing.)

Want to give the gift of hydration? A water filter, whether attatched to the tap or on a pitcher or water bottle provides a regular source of water that’s clean and free of many impurities. A fun water bottle makes it easy to keep track of how much water you’ve drunk and to carry water with you (and therefore drink it) throughout the day. (Aluminum has a possible link with alzheimers, and some plastic can leach chemicals into the contents with prolonged use, so the best choice is a stainless steel bottle.)

A healthy meal-

In this crazy, multitasking world, it’s often easier and more convenient to grab some fast food or convenience food when the day is busy. While that’s ok in moderation, it’s not always the most healthy choice.

To give the gift of nutrition, it’s first important to remember that a meal isn’t healthy if the person won’t eat it. Pushing an extreme dietary change on someone who doesn’t like it is not a gift.

That being said, you can offer to cook something healthier that your recipiant does like, or take them out for a healthy,balanced meal, or give them a gift certificate to a food service (such as one offering fruit, or prepackaged healthy meals) where they can make their choice of something healthy.

Environmental sounds –

 The modern active lifestyle can create stress, and it can be difficult to calm down and release that stress at the end of the day.

Environmental sounds, whether music, sound effects, or sounds of nature are designed to be played quietly in the background as you go about your day, and to lead your brain waves into more calm, relaxed, less stressed patterns.

 Two good sources of these recordings are The Relaxation Company (http://www.soundstrue.com/relaxationco/index.php)     and Brain Sync (http://www.brainsync.com/)  (Free samples at Brain Sync)

The gift of rest-

One of big causes of illness and injury these days is insufficient rest. Folks are so busy trying to be all things to all people that they end up not getting enough sleep and downtime. And stress doesn’t help with this either.

One way you can give the gift of rest is to give the gift of your time. Is there something you could do for that person to free up some of their time so that they can take a nap/ get to bed earlier/ or just relax? There are many things (child care, errands, cooking) where it only takes slightly longer to do them for two people than it does for one, and the time and energy you save the recipiant of your gift can be the best thing you can give them.

So there’s four things from the world of alternative health that you can give to people you care for to make their world a better place. More ideas coming up in the future

Happy Tuesday

Just saw something wonderful and wanted to share it with you all. You can help fund education for girls in Malawi, just by watching a short video on Facebook.

Just by watching for a few minutes. That’s all. And this film moved me

And if you like, you can help even more by sharing this film

A woman who’s educated makes more money. Her children are more likely to live past age 5. And education, both for men and women, helps us make this world a better place

When we lift one person, we all rise. And that’s why this is worth doing.

Want to make the world a better place? Then go here

Thanks for watching

 Till next time.

Thought I’d suggest a few of my favorite books on the Craft.

#1 “Wicca for the Solitary Practitioner”  by Scott Cunningham. This is my all-time favorite. IMHO, if you can afford only 1 book on the Craft, this is it.

#2 “The Tree, A  Handbook of Saxon Witchcraft”  by Raymond Buckland.
For those of us who wish to follow a mix of Wicca and Heathenism, this is an excellent source.

#3″ The Book of Pagan Rituals” by Ed Fitch.Gives you rituals for all occasions.

 Happy Beltain 🙂

 You know what to do – and you just don’t do it…

You feel stuck, like all the things you do go nowhere….

You want to let go of past pain or failure, but you just can’t seem to…

You sabotage yourself…

What’s up with that?

Many times, we’re doing good things, but unconscious negative emotions and beliefs block us from being able to move forwards in life. Negative beliefs and emotions can sabotage our goals and desires, and also cause physical illness( wonder where that ulcer came from?)

And they’re so hard to let go of…

But there is a solution.

(trumpet fanfare) Emotional Freedom Technique ( also called E.F.T.)  is an amazing technique combining tapping on points on your energy meridians with affirmations that clears these negative emotions and beliefs easily and quickly. It’s easy to learn, quick and easy to do, and works like a charm.

The leading source of info on E.F. T. is  Gary Craig at www.emofree.com . This site is an amazing resource, including free manuals and articles that teach you E.F.T. and lots of fun and funky ways to use it for better living.  It’s a good idea to visit and check out what it has to offer.

Sadly, as I’ve announced on two previous occasions, this site is moving towards shutting down. More happily, it has extended its closedown deadline for a second time and is currently slated to remain open until June 1 . I’d recommend getting there while you still can.

Gary and associates are  contemplating leaving some of the resources available online, but this is still being debated so I’d recommend that you get your free manuals now while you still can.

E.F.T. is a wonderful energetic tool and you deserve to get it for free!
