So I recorded this, saw how ridiculously sleepy I was, and thought: do I put off the announcement and re-record? But... no. I keep doing that with video and then the video never happens. So here it is in all its groggy glory.

One Psychic Says: "Enough With The 'Quantum' Nonsense"

Look, there's only one reason a psychic reader or a spiritualist uses the word "quantum": they're trying to manipulate you into believing what they say. It sounds super-scientific, doesn't it? Must be true!

That kind of manipulation is insulting to the person they're speaking to. It's as if they don't believe you should think about what they're saying and decide for yourself if it makes sense. They'd rather you just shut up and swallow whatever you're being spoon fed.

It's a symbol of their lack of faith in you. Of course, on the other side sometimes it's more about a lack of faith in themselves.

They might have a point worth exploring, but they've immediately buried it under this cloying need for approval. They're so worried about people believing what they say, so self-conscious about these ideas, that they need to pepper their language with buzzwords like "quantum" or "energy field" or "wave particle duality".

So, as a psychic and a spiritualist, I say enough; we don't need these crutches. Humans are marvelous, beautiful, and want enlightenment. Let's treat them that way.

Here, try this on for size: love everyone. It makes the world a better place.

Did that lack impact because I forgot to mention the scientific rationale for it? No. And do you know why? Because you're not a psychopath, that's why. You get it.

How about this one: we're all connected.

Oh, did I forget to add "on a quantum level"? That's because if I did that would be stupid, frankly. We share the same air, we live on the same planet, we survive by the same sun. Of course we're all connected, in thousands and millions of ways and levels and the more you look the more you'll see.

Take a moment now and consider this. Isn't it the most easy thing in the world to see? So why would I try to box you into my little "quantum level" frame?

One last one: you can change the world.

No, dammit, not because of quantum physics. You can change the world because you have power.

Now granted, it might have been sleeping, but you can wake that power up. It wants to wake up. We call it by a lot of names: love, compassion, kindness, or just plain humility - that deep burning desire in you to see joy grow inside others.

You can change the world by using that power. You can smile at someone today. Just that. That's a start. That counts. That can change five full minutes of a stranger's life.

From there you can thank someone today for just being who they are and doing what they do. You can treat someone with kindness when they're feeling down. You can laugh with someone.

And person by person, moment by moment, little by little, you can create thousands of sparks of joy that ignite a wildfire of kindness that sweeps this planet and changes everything on every level.

You can do this. This is the truth, and a truth you know without my having to rationalize it in pseudo-scientific "quantum" language. Nobody can take that away from you, and nobody needs to convince you, and we don't need anybody's permission. It's something you already have a handle on, something you already know and didn't need me to teach you. All I'm doing here is saying: "Look at that. Isn't that awesome?"

No more manipulation. Only truth.

Psychic Confession Time

Photo courtesy of Ryan McGuire
Can I be honest? Being a psychic makes me feel like a total weirdo.

That picture isn't me, by the way, but it represents how I feel: a regular Canadian guy who loves beer, hockey, and maple syrup, but underneath it all has this wacky life doing psychic readings. Most of my friends can't relate to it at all.

It doesn't make any sense. Aren't all psychics born with grey hair, swimming in wrinkles, and speak in a crazy accent with a quivering voice about "the spirits"? Shouldn't I be wearing a lot more beads and purple clothing and maybe something with tassels? And I'm supposed to interrupt random stranger's conversations with: "Wait! I sense something! A message is coming through from... beyond!"

But none of that happens. If you didn't know me, you'd swear I was just another office worker. We'd talk about photography, or ROI on PPC campaigns, or maybe we'd just go and get a Timmie's. Love that dark roast.

So I don't know... I don't fit the stereotype, but at the same time I'm not exactly normal either.

Maybe the weirdest thing is how normal it all feels. In those moments during a reading where the extra-paranormal stuff happens, like I'll pick out of the air that their husband is dead or their son is in prison or they just quit their job, in those moments it all feels very natural and normal. People ask me: "How did you know that?" and it's generally just... obvious. In the same way I could see them sitting in the chair, I knew these other impossible to know things.

But later, when they've gone and I have a moment to reflect, I usually think: "Yeah, how did I know that?" And once again, I'm feeling like a weirdo.

It's times like these that I have to remind myself that none of this really matters. Weird is okay. Every day I'm true to myself, every day I do what I know is right, and every day I work hard to make sure that all this awkwardness is worth it. That's what's important.

If anything, my embarrassment at my peculiar "chosen profession" motivates me: it makes me make damn sure that no matter what, I serve these people with every fiber of my being. I'm not going through all this awkwardness for nothing.

The "Man Cold"

A month ago I was sick and it destroyed me for 3 days. Extremely weak, couldn't hold a thought steady in my head, feverish. Some interesting hallucinations. And yes, I admit: plenty of whining.

Since then I've had a bit of a cough that just won't leave, and when I asked myself why I was holding on to it I realized that I wanted to remember that weakness; to remember that despite how strong my body feels right now, how focused and sharp my mind is, that it can all be stripped away.

In essence: I must not identify with strength.

As a man, this is difficult. There is nothing more terrifying for a man than to appear weak. It is a primal imperative inside of us that we are not perceived that way by others. It is both genetic and reinforced by everyone around us since a very, very young age. You must be strong, or you are not a man.

And you must, must, must be a man. Whatever that means.

So as I look back at having been sick, I realize that men suffer from illness on a mental level in a way they often don't even realize is affecting them. When the body fails, when we don't even have the strength to climb a flight of stairs, we feel helpless. It's horrific to us on a deep, deep level that we often don't even have words for. It's terrifying.

Of course this is the blog for The Psychic Village, and we're all about enlightenment, so... what's the fix?

Transcendence, of course. We need to move beyond the whole struggle. We need to realize that strength and weakness are not who we are, they do not define us, they say nothing about our value. The effort here is not to push away strength of course, but to get to a point where you think of it like hair color or the shape of your earlobe: one of those things that doesn't matter, and in no way defines who you are as a person.

Easier said than done though. I have a feeling I'm gonna need to hang onto this cough for awhile.

Why You Can't Attract Money (And How To Get It)

You've read the books, gone to the seminars, taken the courses and done the meditations, but it's time to face facts: money isn't being magnetically drawn to you through the power of the Law of Attraction. Why not?

It's because money doesn't actually exist.

Money isn't even an energy.

Let that sink in for a minute.

The idea of money being something real is sold to us every day in modern society, but its true nature is slowly being revealed as money goes digital. Gradually the rest of us are starting to understand what the truly wealthy have known for ages: money is just a number scribbled down in a book somewhere.

It's important to start seeing money in those terms. Something written down somewhere isn't an energy, nor is it an object. It's just a statistic, like the score in a game or the odometer reading in your car. It has no more substance than the words you're reading right now, and no matter how much meditation and right-thinking you do, these words aren't going to change through the Law of Attraction.

Now here's the good news: if you're willing to see money for what it is, you can do something about it.

Money is just a score, or a reading on a dial. Essentially: it's a sign that something else is happening. This means that all we have to do is look at whatever is making that number appear.

So, if you want to "attract money" as they say, learn how money works. Where does it come from? How is it generated? How is it tracked? What are the details there? Once you've explored these things, you'll find many opportunities where focusing your mind and energy is extremely effective.

This is actually a lot easier and more pleasant than it sounds.

Here's an example: say you wished you earned more money in your job. This becomes an exercise in working out what you want: do you just want a raise, or would you like a promotion? Both are things that are quite easily addressed and worked towards. They're concrete ideas. But if you just focus on "bigger checks" and don't focus on the practicalities of how that might happen, you won't get any further than you already are.

Another example might be if you had a small business, and wanted it to earn more money. Again, this involves getting excited and involved in the nuances of the business itself, its place in the world, and how much good it does for people. The change is this: instead of your business being about earning money, money is about supporting the business. Earning money is just something that happens along the way.

It's understandable if you're not sure how to do this, If you'd like help making this work for you, get in touch and we'll explore some options. Contact me at .
