As some of you may know, I’m a psychic empath, and I’ve worked hard through the years to develop the skills that I needed to get some control of my gift (You’re born with the gift, but you’re not born with the skills that you need to manage it.)

At the suggestion of a friend, I recently joined an online group for psychic empaths. There I found quite a number of folks who were talking about how painful it was to have such an out of control gift, a lot of folks who were asking for information on how to get some control and hardly anyone who seemed to have any idea about how to make that gift a gift as opposed to something oppressive.

Being a helpful person, I made a few suggestions and mentioned that scan0001there were ways that people could get some control and make their gifts a positive thing. I said that suffering was optional.

Well! You would have thought that I was the Antichrist! In short order, I was attacked repeatedly, told that only “lesser empaths” could get any control at all, accused of being insensitive to the pain of other empaths and told that I wasn’t an empath at all.

Whew! That’s crazy talk.

This kind of floored me. If these folks were in so much pain, why the heck would they fight so hard to keep that pain?

Thought about it a bit. Realized that, for these folks, that pain made them feel “special” and important. It’s a shame- they already were special and important, both because they have a gift and because everyone is special. If only they could realize that letting go of the drama would actually feel better than clinging to their limitations.

Well, I helped the ones who were ready to learn something and move forwards out of limitations, and then I moved on as well. Just as pain is optional for them, so is it for me. I feel bad though for all of the folks who were clinging to their pain. I hope that they, someday, get to the point where they’re ready to let their pain go and do something better with their lives.

I hope your week is going well, and that you are moving forwards in the direction of your dreams

Inviting you folks to do the happy dance with me…

After several months of polishing and editing, and a week of struggling with Word and self-publishing software that wasn’t co-operating, I am pleased to announce that the next book from Foresight Publications is imminent.

My new book, The Practical Empath – Surviving and Thriving as a Psychic Empath  was finally completed and submitted to the self-publishing process as of 4 pm on last Thursday.

And I have just been informed that the proof copy is winging its way in my direction, and will probably reach me within the next couple of days ( expected by 430 on Wednesday, but we shall see…)

It’s exciting…

If all goes well, I’m hoping to release The Practical Empath into general circulation within the next couple of weeks.

In the mean time, you’re all invited to be a part of my happy :)!

Those of you who’ve been following this blog for awhile may know that I brought out my first book “Adventures in Palmistry” in November of 2010.

(For those of you who’d like a peek at it or might want to buy it, you can find it  here )

It’s a combination of the book version of my full course on how to read palms (52 bite-sized, easy and fun lessons) with historical information, quotes, stories from my 40 years of reading palms (names omitted, of course) and other useful and entertaining things.

“Adventures in Palmistry” is out and about, and the next book is currently underway.

Over the past few years, I’ve been seeing more and more people who are psychically empathic, but don’t have the techniques to have control of their gift, as opposed to their gift having control of them.

This is a really rough gig (speaking as an empath who learned all her skills the hard way) and there’s not a lot of references or teachers out there to help people get a handle on their empathy.

 Because of this, I’m currently working  on the first draft of a book on surviving and thriving as a psychic empath. I’ve coached people individually on this and taught classes on psychic empathy, but I’m hoping to be able to help more people by putting this information in book form.

As I try to do here at the blog, I’m going to try to empower people by giving them the information, tools and techniques they need in order to make  their empathy a gift as opposed to a burden.

And to do that, I need your help.

If you’re a psychic empath…

If you think you might be a psychic empath, but you’re not sure…

If you work with, or are raising, or are in love with an empath…

What kind of information would you like to see in a book on this?

Your feedback would be much appreciated to make this book the most useful it can possibly be.

Thanks for your feedback

As I’ve mentioned previously in this blog, I’m currently in the process of editing the manuscript of “Adventures in Palmistry” for self-publication. I’ve formatted and reformatted, proofed for typos and grammar, learned technical stuff about inserting headers and section breaks, and even written new material for the book.

Writing fun!

Self-publishing fun!

Editing,  not quite as fun….

But still cool…

But as I’m finishing the editing for “Adventures in Palmistry”, I’m also starting the planning for another book – one on how to survive and thrive as a psychic empath.

So I’d like your input.

If you’re a psychic empath….

If you think you might be a psychic empath…

If you live with or work with or love a psychic empath..

What would you like to see in a book about this?

I’ve got a lot of practical information the subject, but hearing from other people can help me do a better job of covering what folks need to know.

So your input could make this a better book.

Wanna help? Post a comment here or email me with your questions and suggestions at we_are_foresight@yahoo.com .

And thank you for your support.

Your home is your castle, and, just as it’s wise to energetically shield your personal energy field, it’s also a good idea to protect your home from possible negative influences. Wards are items and techniques that you can use to set firm energetic boundaries around your home, office or other personal areas to keep good energy in, keep negative or uninvited energy out, and make your space truly your space.

Starwolf”s class includes a wide variety of options and has something for everyone, whether you’re just starting out or have some experience in warding.Come learn some useful skills that you can use right away.

I’m a pretty sensitive psychic and empath. I can tell you from experience that there’s a noticable positive difference between an unwarded area and one that’s been properly warded. Being constantly exposed to every type of energy that happens by can be stressful, exhausting, and have a negative effect on your health and well-being. For the metaphysically aware, wards can make a personal area that is clear of these outside energies, and that’s really positive and supportive.

You’ll be relieved from all of those energies  pounding on you. You’ll feel better. And that’s a great thing.

If you don’t know how to ward, you need to learn. And you can learn here.

And if you do know about warding, Starwolf may have some new twists that you haven’t run across yet….

Starwolf’s class on warding will take place on August 14, this Saturday from 3-5 at Talisman (www.talismanct.com )  in Monroe, Ct. At $20, it’s quite a bargain. If this is the class for you, call 203-261-0047  to claim your seat.

Has someone told you that you’re oversensitive?

Do other people’s bad moods put you in a bad mood too?

Do you knock yourself out to make other people happy because it’s the only way you can be happy yourself?

Well, my friend, you may be an empath….

Psychic empathy (psychic sensitivity to the emotional vibrations of those around you) can be a blessing, a totally overwhelming state or anything in between. To make it work for you, you need the right skills-shields to keep your energy distinct from others, ways to deflect negative emotions, and other techniques to help you be in control of your gift, rather than it controlling you.

Have I got a class for you…….

On March 27th, I’ll be teaching  “Path of the Empath-Psychic Empathy 101” at Talisman in Monroe, Ct from 3-5. Come learn simple methods to manage your energy  and make your empathy the gift it was meant to be.

This class is helpful for both empaths and for the people who want to support them.

Does this feel like just the class you need? Then call Talisman for your space in the feel-good class of the year.

See you in class

Want to make your life better?

Got a vision of what you’d like to improve?

Want to get the energy of the Universe flowing in the direction of your dreams?

Well, have I got a class for you…..

The Law of Attraction tells us that we tend to attract what we focus on. A Vision board is a powerful personal tool for harnessing this energy to manifest our visions and bring better things into our lives.

And they’re lotsa fun to make :-).

On 3/13 from 3-5, I’ll be teaching a jam-packed-full-of-good-stuff class on vision boards at Talisman in Monroe, Ct. (www.talismanct.com, 203-261-0047   ). If you’re there, you’ll learn about vision boards- how they work and how to work with them. You’ll hear how vision boards channel the Law of Attraction to your benefit. You’ll see 12 different types of vision boards, and experience a meditation to help focus your dreams and dream bigger. Finally, you’ll make your own personal vision board to take home with you.

And you’ll probably have a lot of fun in the process…

Does this sounds like your kind of thing? It’s not too late to contact Talisman and seize your seat in this class.

Hope to see you there






P.S. Like classes? This class not enough for you?

I’ll also be teaching “Path of the Empath-Psychic Empathy 101” on 3/27, and “Usui Reiki, level 2” on 4/10, both at Talisman. There’s still time for you to claim your position in these classes, if you want to; so call soon if you want to attend.

If  you’ve been reading this blog, you’ve probably noticed that part of it is announcements of where you can catch the psychics of Foresight for classes, readings and the other services we provide. You’ve also probably noticed that most of our blog is posts that teach you practical skills for living in this magickal world.

What you may not know is how we chose what we’re writing about…

Starwolf and I are both rather ecclectic. Each of us has been active in the areas of spirituality, personal growth, metaphysics and alternative health for over 40 years . Since our areas of interest in these fields are complimentary but not identical, we’ve accumulated a fair amount of knowledge between the two of us by now.

So how are we currently chosing what to write on? We’re pretty much riffing on what comes up right now.

What’s interesting to me is that, as I find myself ready to start a new topic, suddenly someone with a  new need manifests, putting my new topic in front of me.


  • I wrote on scrying because I met a woman in a bookstore who had questions about it.
  • The posts on energetic shields were for empaths I’d met doing readings who needed shielding skills to master  their gifts.
  • Folks trying to let go of the energy from emotional wounds of the past were the starting point for the posts on grounding.

You get the idea.

So where am I going next?

In the last 12 hours, while randomly reading a few other blogs , I’ve run across two unrelated people who were both rather stressed by portentious dreams ( one a crash of the plane she was about to take, the other a recurring dream about setting up with the band before playing a performance…).

There’s a need here…

So I guess I’m going to Dreamland next…

It’s Palmistrywoman to the Rescue!!!

Watch for information on Dream interpretation coming up…

(And, if you have questions about other topics metaphysical, magickal, spiritual, or in alternative health, or personal growth, please let us know.

If you want to know about something, and we’ve got the knowledge, your quest for information could spark our next information track.)

So, off to Dreamland!!!

(hee hee)
